  1. 2018 Lego Trains

    Just went on Bricklink and ordered more red windows (1x4x3) so I can expand and add additional HE passenger cars.
  2. 2018 Lego Trains

    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.
  4. 2018 Lego Trains

    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.
  5. Seasonal 2018

    Instagram has a new Christmas train posted (30543). I'm not sure if it's legit to post the image, so I'll refrain from doing so for now and let everyone find it themselves with Google. Don't get too excited...it's a poly bag. But it looks really good for what it is.
  6. 2018 Lego Trains

    Wow! I wonder if those vehicles that come with the freight train are meant to ride on the tracks as they are displayed in the leaked photos? The passenger train looks a LOT different than I expected based on the older grainy leaked photos. To me, both trains look stubbier than I expected, although that might be an illusion caused by the camera lens or angle of the photo. I'm looking forward to seeing the official photos to see these trains from all sides.

    This looks fantastic! Except for the basketball hoop. I really hate the scale of that hoop piece, it is so far out of proportion to everything else.
  8. 10261 LEGO Creator Expert Roller Coaster

    The base is exactly 100 studs long (I counted), which should be about 79 cm. So the 88 cm must include the overhang at the top of the coaster.

    Google "instagram legoleaks". You'll see what looks like a poster or magazine cover with a minifig on a dirt bike. In the corner you'll see a drawing of a train, and as @dimaks13 pointed out, a photo of the train behind the dirt bike. I never noticed the photo until it was pointed it out to me.

    Instagram and reddit have a pic of a poster, not sure if it's a leaked image or not, but it shows the new green train. It's only a drawing, and doesn't provide much more information than we already know from previously leaked images of the actual set. But assuming it's an accurate drawing of the new green train, it shows that it will have front couplers and few other details.
  11. 10261 LEGO Creator Expert Roller Coaster

    Notice the map on the bottom right-hand corner of the Rollercoaster. It shows the Rollercoaster, Ferris Wheel, and Carousel. It does not include the Mixer. I have always felt the mixer seemed out of place with the Ferris Wheel and Carousel. It feels more like a carnival ride than a permanent amusement park ride. This map seems to confirm my speculation. Well, at least it justifies me not having bought the Mixer
  12. Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    In my experience (U.S.), trains of cars are far more common on rollercoasters than single cars. I have no statistics, just my observation at numerous amusement parks in the United States.
  13. Disney Princesses 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    On the Tangled sets, what does "Build and Swap" imply? Is this going to be a feature similar to the 'modular' Creator houses? Nevermind, I see that was answered above.
  14. 2018 Friends Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    WOW!!!! Just saw leaked images for the Advent Calendar on reddit. The calendar has gotten a major upgrade in quality. The daily gifts actually require building! There are no mini-dolls in this year's calendar, which is a bummer, but the daily builds are far more substantial than they have been in the past. Hmmm....another observation on the Advent Calendar. It seems that each daily build is meant to be an ornament, which is probably why there are no mini-dolls included.
  15. 2018 Creator Sets

    if you search "instagram lego leaks", you should find them. They show the back of the box. The image is much clearer than the previously leaked photo, but the image is not that large. You can certainly make out more details than before, but official images will be much better when they are released.
