    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Thanks for pointing this out. I found an even older interview with Jamie as I was looking for this one. Tons of great insight into the machinations of Lego design whenever he is interviewed. But I noticed something interesting. Just a sliver of a clue that we might be getting a police station in the modular line soon. Look at the following text quoted from Jamie: JB: "There are so many people who have made fire stations and police stations and banks that when we do a bank or a fire house there are already fifteen others where people say “I like this guy’s better” so we found that we really need to keep our game high, trying to surprise you guys. Even if it is not a new idea to do a bank, if we do one we want to surprise you with some fun and interesting ways of using the elements or maybe attaching a laundromat next to it which is something that I hope hadn’t been seen before. That’s where I think it puts a little more pressure on us to think of something fresh." This is just an excerpt from a larger quote. But it's almost as though he accidentally included 'police station' with fire station and bank. Is this a clue? Is Police Station next?

    Lego City 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    The harvester looks like it wants to be a corn harvester. But in relation to the minifigure in the same image, it looks way too small. Its scale is more like a riding lawn mower. That's disappointing. I was looking forward to a proper piece of farm equipment.

    LEGO Friends' Theme Park (8): Looping Starship

    This is fantastic! They say imitation is the best form of flattery....that said...I'm going to try to imitate this and build one for my amusement park.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Yeah, that was my thought too. These supplemental and complementary builds could go in the Creator line. I think they would be more 'substantial' if in the Creator line. Sometimes the City sets look small and junior-ized compared to Creator. And to be honest, City has been doing this within the City theme. The City cargo set had a snowmobile that matched the Arctic subtheme. And the large City center set also had some nods to the Arctic subtheme. So it's not as though Lego has never done this sort of crossover idea in their sets. But it would be great to see it in the Creator modular series too.
  5. I just saw the new November 2018 calendar on the Lego website. I was very disappointed that there are no 'gifts with purchase' mentioned, or other seasonal sets aside from the Winter Village Fire Station. I was hoping to see some new polybags, or other small gifts that might be available this holiday season. Are my expectations wrong? Should we not be seeing new gifts with purchase and other seasonal sets in November?
  6. What is the blue scooter thing? Is it supposed to be a scooter? A shopping cart? A child's pretend car? BTW, I love everything about this set...just curious about that blue thing.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Rumors from Instagram say the new Winter Village set is $109.99 US, and 1225 pieces.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I saw those too. Note to others, there are four images there, you just need to hit the arrow over (at least in the original post by aakos12). Anyhow, are these images of the next Winter Village set? Or are these images of some sort of GWP? The third photo looks like the interior of a building. Anyhow, I love the tree (as much as you can see it), hate the snowman (as usual), but can't wait to see the next set!

    2018 Lego Trains

    Who said anything about dragging around an unpowered motor? I said one of the engine cars was motorized, and one was not. And there were three passenger cars between them. So one motorized and powered car, and 4 non-powered. I'm not sure why you typed half a page to explain that dragging a car with a non-powered motor would cause a lot more drag. You even went as far as to measure this effect. Thank you for quantifying the obvious.

    I doubled up 60051, and it ran with no problem. You could sense a little more drag on the motor, but it still ran nicely. I'm not sure how long it would run compared to a single set. And to be clear, I took a second set of 60051 and converted it into 2 more passenger cars. So by doubling the set, what I actually ended up with was two of the "engine" cars with the pointy nose and three passenger cars. Only one of the "engine" cars was actually motorized.

    Creator Expert Car 2018 Speculation

    So an American brand car might alienate non-Americans. And an Asian brand car might alienate non-Asians. I don't agree with the logic, but let's go with it. So why would a European brand car appeal to everyone? Would it not alienate non-Europeans? Are you assuming European brands are universally loved while other regional brands are offensive to rest of the world?

    Just went on Bricklink and ordered more red windows (1x4x3) so I can expand and add additional HE passenger cars.

    This was my first thought too. It needs to be a bit longer. I compared the new HE to the actual locomotive in the movies, and it's really amazing how many of the details on the real loco are incorporated into this new version. But I do think it could be a few studs longer. I'll probably buy 2 sets so that I have multiple passenger cars, and enough pieces to stretch the locomotive 3 to 4 studs longer.

    If I'm not mistaken, the coveted train windows are included in the passenger car.

    I've seen the leaked images of a new Hogwarts Express!!!!! We are getting yet another train this year! And there will be a train station (probably separate) to go with it! Check the usual suspects on Instagram.
