  1. To be honest, you really can’t see the cable between the two that much. If it truly bothers you, I would be looking to build connectors underneath the hitch point for the tender somehow, but this would make it quite challenging in such a small build.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Certainly Parisian Restaurant, although I though the cinema had already been retired, so perhaps if funds allowed, you might want to squeeze both in, as they equally have charms. I think the cinema can be made much better inside for very little outlay too.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    You only have to look at some of the fantastic fairground MOCs out there to see that there’s at least another 10-15 sets without repeating. Dodgems, haunted houses, drop tower, octopus, chair swings, bungee launchers. I’m quite looking forward to seeing how far they take it. Makes me slightly annoyed I missed the fairground mixer now.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Admittedly a number of years ago, I did see a merchandising plan for a Lego store, for November of that year, back in the summer, and it showed model numbers and names on each placeholder. So perhaps there is a grain of truth in the rumours. It had been left on the check out desk, as the manager had been called to deal with a customer. I would expect Lego store staff to be more secure than this nowadays, however, with the cheap copycat spy’s lurking about.

    Odd pricing on the Lego store

    Hmm. Possibly. I meant to say that this is the shop at home site.
  6. Hi all in the Swiss Lego store, there seems to be a really odd price occurring. I noticed this with the luggage tags. 5005582 hot dog guy luggage tag. CHF 9.90. 5005580 banana guy luggage tag. CHF 79.00. for those of you in euros, that’s about 8.50 for one and 69.00 for the other. USD is about the same as CHF. GBP is 7.99 for one and 65.00 for the other. Odd no?

    I wonder if this is a hark back to the fake leak we had last year I think, in which a good mock up of a box was seen with a complete, if ugly looking gas station was shown. I’ll try to remind the picture. This is the one I mean.

    Yep. I think you’re right there.

    First of all then, don’t we need a police station to catch the crooks. After all, the detective just seems concerned with the cookie smuggling, and there’s money laundering going on over at the bank. Someone Call th cops.

    Tips for MOCing a Modular?

    I’ve done a few modular style buildings in the same method as you, although I rarely get round to buying the bricks to keep them. I start with an architectural style, and an idea of what business is going on the ground floor. This often determines if the first and second floors are linked or separate, for example, my current project is a Miami South Beach Art Deco style Hotel, which the ground floors invariably had a restaurant as well as reception. Therefore the top two floors have to be linked to the ground floor main business. I then move on to the footprint, and build up from there, using photos as references. I tend to build the shell of the building first, and then adjust it to add in interior walls and features.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I beg to differ. I certainly grew up in the midlands of the U.K.,with the fire brigade brining Santa round on a ´sleigh’ trailer behind the engine. They collected change for presents for sick kids and those in care. They also do something similar in some towns where I live in Switzerland too.

    [MOC] Lego Ghost Train ride

    That’s absolutely fabulous. Totally has the look and feel of a fairground ride, including the slightly jerky motion I remember as a kid. The scenes are very cool and I admire the attention to the little details too. Can’t wait to see what falls out on your next fairground build.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Perhaps this was a backup design in case the rollercoaster didn’t come off. It may turn out to be released next year. If they release it this autumn, I think it’s likely that we’ll have to go without in 2019, or possibly a smaller set, like the fairground mixer, perhaps.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    It’s interesting to note that this set has dropped in price on the seller area of bricklink recently. I don’t have it, and am quite tempted as there are some sealed new versions available at not much, if any, over listed new price.
  15. Interesting that this has been visited before, but not a lot has changed. After posting, i remembered that when i purchased assembly square and brick bank, to save space in the car, i put the entire contents of brick bank into the assembly square box. It wasn’t rammed in either. I think the shelf space arguement is probably winning over the other considerations. A shame, as i think its time for a change.
