  1. Remember to leave as much slack in the gearing system as possible. Check this at each stage of the build and you should find the motor more than capable of pulling the entire train and then some.

    Exactly. Why don’t we, for once, congratulate the designer for building an authentic industrial northern USA style building, with some nice gags, and an interestingly shaped facade. No doubt some changes that some of us would like were written off due to piece count issues, or other factors that the designer had no say over. The more I look at it, the more I want it, despite the price, which did make me gulp a little.

    Not exactly what I was expecting, but I think it’s a nice addition to the range in all. I can certainly see it between the DO and AS. I can also see one or two areas to mod slightly to improve the look, although I never do this in practice. They’re displayed as originals. Price bump is gonna hurt though. Over here modulars will have gone up quite quickly. PR, BB, DO, PC all came in at chf170, DD was chf199, and this is listed at chf229. Effectively a chf50 bump over two years. Ouch. Looking at exchange rates we’re being stung. Roughly chf100 =100 usd.

    Oddly enough I’d still probably buy that.

    I love that we’re all desperate to find out what it will be like kids on Christmas Eve looking at the wrapped boxes under the tree. Lets be honest, whatever it is, most of us will buy it and love parts of it and not so much other parts. I just hope it comes in at a price I can afford as I’ve been a bit greedy these past couple of months.

    I’m quite keen to see a car repair garage actually. I think it has the capacity to have a really interesting interior with some well designed features. In the end, most of us just display them, not play as it were so it’s got to appeal visually first, right?

    I’m in the process of dismantling all my modulars etc and can confirm that the shipping weights are way over the actual weight of the bricks. I’m gonna guess that the 3.9 kilo is more realistic. My DD comes in at a fair bit below 3 kg excluding instruction book. Take into account box and I’m guessing that makes the difference. The 6 kg might be another landmark building in the Big Ben and tower bridge range.

    Yep. Saw that. Have resisted the creator expert vehicles but this might just turn my head. Has to be a 65/66 classic though, none of this retro modern stuff. The pink ‘thing’ in the diner, i actually like. Now the black POS with the Cinema, what was that all about? That was a part count bump up, and a poor design to boot.

    Much as I love Discworld and Terrys work in general, I don’t think it has the draw at the age group Lego is mostly aimed for. I’m also not sure how well it would work, as in my mind at least, there’s barely a straight edge in Ankh Morpork.

    Yeah true. But that’s retiring and we’ve got 2 restaurants already. Just a thought anyhow.

    With the reference to music and police it brings to mind a prohibition era speakeasy kinda thing. I don’t know how realistic this is but could have interesting ‘play’ features hiding the booze and gambling tables etc.

    With pet shop being 2*16 wide, don’t count this sort of thing out as a future ´correction’ to the block, perhaps as an extra ´mini’ Modular.

    That’s really good. No extra pieces used? I miss B models.

    I’d love to see the results of that Art Deco refit. I agree that the PC is the weakest of the currently available modulars, but it is representative of a number of cinemas I’ve seen on my travels across the USA, although LAs graumans is clearly the lead inspiration.
