  1. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Thanks for confirming that some members of this forum has almost no sense of humour. I thought eurobricks was supposed to be a friendly place for us to whittle away a few minutes a day on our collective hobby. It’s a shame that we have to get a bit snarky about things sometimes. I don’t want to start some kind of flaming exercise so I leave it here.
  2. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Mods, perhaps rename this thread to “The great minifig head in modulars debate” As an attempt to bring this back to the thread title, now we have a 50’s streamline diner for 2018, what do we think the the next (2019) modular will be and do we think it’ll be a similar style. Me, I think we’ll get a 1960s brutalist concrete building, perhaps as a twin shop setup.
  3. [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    Ouch. That jars somewhat. Not in my layout. Perhaps next to DO
  4. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Thanks for the info. The last time I checked (in the summer) the lowest price for both sides of the PS complete, was nudging £200, which was about $250 -$280 at the time. I’d seen that sort of price for one half the set. Clearly one needs to check regularly.
  5. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Slightly off topic here, as this thread is want to do from time to time. for me, AS is my fave build, followed by PR, and DO. BB was better than PC, but that’s because I think the interior of PC was too basic. I don’t have the rest so can’t comment. Too expensive to buy now.
  6. [MOC] Grand Palace Hotel

    Living just a couple of dozen km from montreux, I see the building that inspired this almost weekly. I have to say you’ve captured the look and feel of the palace hotel, brilliantly. Outstanding work.
  7. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Well if it’s a fake, then it’s a good one, rather like the 50s style octane Italian inspired gas station earlier in the thread. I’m not convinced either way. In some ways it shows some inventive SNOT work and design ideas, but in others, like the floor separation not being clear, it really doesn’t hang together right. Perhaps the floor gap is hiding behind the signage? It’s also quite a departure architecturally from the more recent modulars, which are mostly full of angles, rather than curves (tower on AS not withstanding)
  8. Long live the 4-stud wide [MOC]

    I, like you, grew up on 4 wide cars of the late 70s and 80s. I’ve just got back into minifig scale building after the last 2 ½ decades being a technic only builder, and have found the “new” 5 and 6 wide vehicles quite hard to design and build. I’ve ended up buying city sets just to learn techniques and have a parts stash, although I don’t think they fit in well with the Modulars, which is what I build now. Does anyone else have any thoughts on this.
  9. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    OMG, I’ve just realised why I think the PR doesn’t fit in with the rest of the street I have. (PR, PC, DO, BB, AS), It’s the pitched roof. Non of the others have them. Ok AS has the middle building but stuck in between flat roofs. It lends such a different character. I agree, and a pitched roof building might also take away the American feel I think my street has.
  10. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I really hope that it’s not a re-release of an existing building. I only have the last 5, but really want a variety of buildings to expand the modular street. I’d also welcome a growth of modulars into streets, with corners having more street furniture like signs, and signals, perhaps a bit like GBHQ.
  11. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    That’s a shame snaillad, as AS is a great build, and the finished product is one of the better finished modulars from the last 2 / 3 years.
  12. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I do hope it is a fake. It’s just not pretty is it? However, i have seen buildings like this in Italy, with petrol stations below, so it’s not impossible.
  13. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Perhaps we’re all getting wires crossed. Maybe the larger non modular building is something like NYC Grand Central Station. Although I personally think Washington DC’s station is more beautiful on the inside, this is a well renowned landmark building. It wouldn’t then be minifig scale, and hence the train wouldn’t have to be full sized. just a thought.
  14. Good and simple mod. Will be scouring my meagre technic supply for the parts to apply this. Failing that, a wee brick link order might just be in order.
  15. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    So by my ready reckoning 10256 or 10261 is likely a large non modular building, like Big Ben, or Sydney opera house. 10260 is probably the next fairground ride since these tend to cost just a little more than the modular range. 10262 is therefore the modular, and that leaves 10263 as a vehicle like the mini or VW beetle. Have I got that right? Maybe other opinions out there.
