    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Mostly, but not always.
  2. What do you mean by "downgraded". As far as I can tell the sets are exactly the same as they would have been, with a relatively minor change to the naming convention. From my perspective, it looks like they've just changed the way sets are boxed from "A Marvel set from the Junior's line" to "a Junior's set from the Marvel line".

    The set both includes both a full set of power functions equipment (which accounts for $21) and large pieces. Both of these would affect the price. I doubt it's due to the plant-based parts. Lego wants them to be a success so increasing the cost of sets containing them wouldn't be beneficial. Plus, they just gave thousands of them away for free.

    I'm on the side of "not bothered about a GG re-release". I don't think it would be quite as popular as people expect. As a few other people have stated, the build techniques are not as complex as the more recent sets, and I much prefer the more recent sets with more detailed interiors. Besides, I would expect them to release a Cafe Corner set before GG. It's the original set and more iconic than GG.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Lego is still being somewhat vague on Twitter about the packs (availability will vary based on country). If a decision had been made for it to definitely not be available in the UK, I imagine they would have just said as much. Until we hear definitively, I'll hold off on spending £45+ for it online. I imagine the price will drop as more regions have them available, even if it isn't released here.
  6. Why on Earth would you think that? It'll be the biggest Marvel film of the year. There is no chance that they would ignore it.
  7. I expect we won't see any X-Men sets until the deal is complete. It'll likely be at least a year until any are released.

    Not really. Although the paths take up more room, the majority of the "straight" modulars have space at the back, whereas the corners typically go up to the edge of the baseplate. Overall the area for the build is about the same. In fact, some of the corner buildings feel like they have a larger footprint than the straight ones.

    I wouldn't hold too much faith in it. People who order from LEGO said it was a service station this time last year as well.

    That's hardly surprising. Lego said it would be available there in the future, but they don't yet have a date. If the deal isn't finalised, or at least hasn't yet been publicised, it's doubtful that store employees would have been informed. If it was due to be there at the end of the month, it's still likely a lot of employees wouldn't know until the sets came into the stock room.
  12. He's the most recent in a series that have the stands. I think it is the new standard for Star Wars polybags.
  13. I imagine it's like the other events they hold in stores. Normally they have a section where you can build a model and send it down a ramp. It's probably a Star Wars themed version.
  14. When I go on the US site it shows $50 as the price, but when downloaded it says $35 in the PDF version. I wonder if the price point for the GWP was changed, but they didn't update the thumbnail (or vice versa, and the PDF version is wrong). On the Canadian version (well, the French Canadian version), there is no mention of the GWP at all. But we can be sure it isn't the EU version, because it wouldn't be in dollars. As for whether it's "free". It is. They choose to give it to you with no additional payment when they receive your custom. You have the choice about whether you want to buy the Lego or not. It's how pretty much every GWP has worked.
  15. This is another part I don't understand. If you don't like something, why buy it? It seems silly to spend hundreds on something you don't like just so you have all the toys in a particular range.
