    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I would love for the modular line to segue into Harry Potter. They could create a "Leaky Cauldron" and then splinter off to a series of buildings from Daigon Alley.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I get the following impressions from the video: Modulars are still a strong part of the LEGO portfolio. The modular 'theme' will continue well into the future. They are tracking closely which trends in modular buildings work and which ones don't work. This also suggests that not all modulars sell equally well. The design team at LEGO will continue to push the boundaries of what the modular buildings will entail. They are not complacent with designing status quo buildings. We can expect modulars in the coming years to have jarring designs like the DD. They won't always blend into the typical NYC/Amsterdam style of architecture.

    Seasonal 2019

    A large Christmas tree (leak?) was just posted on Instagram with the usual hashtags. Some claim it is a gift with purchase. And that looks about right, as this set is similar in size and scale to the snow globe (GWP) from last year.

    I'm really excited about the birch tree elements in the treehouse set!

    Seasonal 2019

    The scarecrow looks great! A definite buy for me. I also noticed a new bauble. It's not a leak, it may not even be new, it's already been posted on Brickset without much fanfare. Collecting these baubles is one of my favorite things to do at Christmas (as far as Lego goes).

    Lego City 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    Wow! This is the set I've been waiting for. I'm really liking this subtheme as a whole, however, this is the first set that you can incorporate into an existing city layout. This is fantastic!

    2019 LEGO Trains - 70424

    The train being shown on Instagram apparently shows the real-life train at Disneyland as to what the model is based on (as stated by legonerd54321). However, I like the train at Disney World (Florida, USA) much better. The train at Disney World seems looks more like a train that would have been used 150 years ago. The one at Disneyland looks like concept art.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    It has been mentioned before, perhaps under other topics, that 10266 Discovery Expert (with 1087 pieces) could likely be a re-release of the Emerald Night train which originally had 1085 pieces. But why use Discovery with the train? That said, your guess is as good as mine :).

    PAB Cups: What Did You Get?

    There are two possibilities. First, the Orlando store is essentially the Disney World Store. It's located in Downtown Disney, and it has the largest PAB wall I have ever seen. It's easily 5 to 6 times larger than any other store I have seen. It goes to reason that maybe they just have more selection there. The second possibility is that they are not pieces for the PAB wall. I have been to stores, mostly in Europe, that will break up damaged sets and put the pieces in a box near the PAB wall and make available for cup filling (Vienna store, in particular). Maybe some of those pieces came from a bin like that. I was just to the Cleveland, OH store and I can confirm that they had the 1x2 masonry brick and the white ice cream piece. Everything else in OH seemed fairly ordinary to me.

    PAB Cups: What Did You Get?

    Wow! The 1x2 masonry bricks, the 1x2 dark blue plates, and the new flower designs are a great find! I'm jealous!

    PAB Cups: What Did You Get?

    Yeah, the mini-builds were awful, but I liked them for two reasons. First, they often utilized some interesting or useful pieces. The terrible looking Statue of Liberty being the best example. And second, knowing what the mini-build is supposed to be, you could be reasonably sure that those pieces would be in stock when you went. A reliable inventory tracker for the brick walls would be such a welcomed tool. Lastly, I heard that the stores now are purposefully filling the bottom rows with 2x4 bricks as a safety precaution for all the young kids that visit and like to pick the pieces up (and put them in their mouth).

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    Don't be sorry. Thank you!!!! I too come back to this thread every couple of days to see if there is any new information. But I find pages and pages of arguing about what a leaker is or isn't. I try to backtrack to find the actual list that everyone is arguing about, but that gets tedious after a while. So thank you for reposting and re-summarizing the list. I find this to be helpful.
  15. Holy crap! We're getting T-rex versus a dino-mech, and a triceratops rampage set! See this article on gizmodo. Not sure how they have high-res photos of this already, and I haven't seen any leaks yet (or am I just blind?). https://io9.gizmodo.com/jurassic-worlds-t-rex-fighting-mecha-t-rex-is-the-lego-1832638350
