    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    Not sure when that was released, but it probably reflected the notion that there was a fair bit of violence at football matches in the 80s and 90s.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I saw that too, and got excited for a fairground release, and then realised it said Star Wars in the box. Whilst I have the UCS MF, the rest of the range is not of interest to me really.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Part of me hopes for kits for specific models, but I think these will be poor sellers when compared to a generic lighting kit, and possibly more expensive to set up, with different boxes, instruction printing etc. Maybe it’ll be generic kits, and then digital instructions using probably more than one kit for each of the big builds, like Modulars or Fairground. I do wonder if there will have to be special plates, with metal embedded, like we had in the dim and distant past too.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I, for one, would welcome a slightly lower priced Fairground set, maybe along the lines of the Fairground Mixer set, which I completely missed out on. I feel the fairground needs some smaller stalls and amusements to populate the spaces between the big four rides. I’ve dropped the UFO carousel in, and have the pirate coaster to somehow fit in too, but its lacking closeness, so perhaps we’ll get these this year, which will no doubt disappoint some.

    [MOC] Modular School

    An epic build with some amazing details. Congrats on capturing the high school style in every possible way. Superb.

    [MOC] Modular Chinese Restaurant

    That’s fantastic, and certainly complements the garden, which I picked up to go next to my Palace Cinema. Might be looking to build something inspired by your excellent efforts here, now that I’ve seen this.
  7. Moving this thread along a bit, are there any MODs that owners have made to improve the shuttle. I am still building it, and am tempted to not place the ‘Discovery’ name stickers at an angle, as the originals are parallel to the fuselage. I’m also looking if the small gaps in the wings underneath can be filled using a black cheese wedge somehow, like the upper surface is. I’m also going to look at getting other payloads if i can find out more about what Discovery carried.

    Star Bird 1978 - Instructions Now Available

    Blast from the past this. I had one, as well as the base, and the baddies ship too. As i recall, the grey fins at the rear separated and became little fighter ships. You’ve done a brilliant job of getting this brick built.

    LEGO Trains 2021

    I wasn’t aware it was a Lego Exclusive. I purchased mine in Manor (A Swiss chain of department stores like John Lewis in the UK), and have seen it in a couple of other places here in the UK too? Perhaps its not a Lego Exclusive in all countries? Is this common?

    Is there any value in vintage lego?

    Thanks for the advice. I didn’t think brick link went back that far. Looking at most, they’re not worth much, so the parts will enter the brick bins for regular building.
  11. Hi all, As per the title, is there any value in vintage lego. I’ve acquired a few old sets, some with 3 digit numbers, and some that don’t appear to have numbers on the instructions, but I’m not sure what to do with them. If there’s value in them, (just bricks and instructions) then I’ll sort, build and maybe consider selling on. If not, then the bricks can join my collection. Any thoughts or ideas?
  12. I too am so totally annoyed at the outcome of this. Feel like there must have been only a few hundred of these sets, and most of them appear to have been had by scalpers for future eBay sales. Grrrrr. I thought the VIP system mean this reduced this problem. Apparently not.
  13. They are a little shy of being a perfect fit, yes, I’ve got two 60cm wide ones, side by side, and have left a gap at the edge, but you can get different sized tops, some of which are 75cm wide, which will almost fit 3 base plates exactly.
