    UK TLG customer service accessible?

    It’s unlikely, but the Covid lockdown in place is probably the major couse of disruption here in the UK. I don’t think a call centre worker for a toy company counts as a key worker.

    Ordering from Lego.com in the UK

    It appears we’re in the same boat. I placed an order on the 1st Jan, Lego took their time and ‘shipped’ it on the 5th. Looking at DPD it was authorised in Oldham UK on the 5th, and then registered in Belgium on the 6th, and it hasn’t shifted since. I e mailed them yesterday to find out what the problem is, as they sent me an e mail on the 6th stating delivery in 2 working days, which would have been 8th, perhaps 11th latest. I’m sure its a mixture of Brexit and Covid issues, but an e mail to let us know would have been welcome.

    [MOD] My digital City vehicles

    Love the reworked trucks. Remind me of the large pickup style trucks in the US. Lots of different bodies on the back. We don’t get much like that in Europe. We get lots of Transit van style things instead, which all look the same.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    A great idea that makes sense. Since baseplates only come in a few colours it probably wasn’t hard to source the required plates. If I get round to buying these new roads, I might use your idea. Thanks for sharing.

    10278 Police Station

    So 11 days in, and its not moved? Grr. I think this is more DPD tbh. They’ve just dropped off my IKEA order including the cheap tables to start building my Lego town on, and they’ve literally dropped half the order, rendering it unusable. Let’s hope the police station arrives in the correct number of pieces along with my GWP car too.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Out of interest, did you re build the Modulars onto plates, or do you just place the baseplates they’re normally built on, onto the road plates to give the height?

    10278 Police Station

    Yeah, 5th registered in Oldham, and then 6th Mechelen. Still no sign of it though. Here’s hoping it arrives Monday.

    10278 Police Station

    I had the same problem with the Elves Clubhouse delivered in the U.K. luckily the lego box hole was small enough to prevent anything escaping. I’m quite concerned about my Police Station, as it was promised by Friday, hasn’t arrived and using the DPD tracking number, it’s taken me to the .de site, showing my parcel as having undergone customs clearance in Oldham, UK, then in Mechelen, BE a day later. I live in the U.K.

    10278 Police Station

    It’s an idea, but I’m more likely to MOC something TBH. I think there are a few parts in Market Street that are not available so there are some work arounds which also puts me off.

    That looks about perfect. Sadly only been collecting Modulars since the Palace Cinema, so will probably have to slide it in next to the Downtown Diner to achieve the same effect. If i could reverse build the Parisian Restaurant, then I think that might look just as good.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I would always buy them with a couple of years of release. Boxed examples often go for silly money not long after they are officially retired and out of stock. I missed the Petshop, by not realising that it was retired, and concentrated on others that were on shelf in local shops.

    I’m one of those lucky UK residents with non essential shops open, however online was where i placed my order too. I just can’t see a toy shop being somewhere I’d want to spend a lot of time currently.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Yeah. I saw that. Its a great idea. If i can afford both that and the Modular Police Station, then it’ll be hitting my town.

    I really like this idea, with the ability to have the 16x32 building to be separate and able to be placed either side would be even better. Could even up the assembly square offset.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I hope TLG will take inspiration from some of the Lego Ideas that have not quite made it, such as a ghost train, or dodgems. These can have a lot of movement, and its not all round in a circle like the Ferris wheel, or carousel. The UFO mini ride in the creator theme this year added another circular rotation to the theme park. We could do with something else. I think the free fall tower in the haunted house was an attempt at variation in movement, after the roller coaster and the pirate coaster from the previous years.
