  1. There was 5600: Radio Control Racer in 1998, but it's not Technic, but rather a studded RC Car chassis, with 5 different available builds on top.

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    I've seen beat boxes go down as much as 50%, regular sets about 33% .

    Best Play Features?

    Enchanted Island from 1994 had a similar function with the bridge, set also has a crocodile so you could put some danger beneath the bridge.

    Lego City 2022 Rumours, leaks information and discussion

    While the current LEGO police color scheme certainly has some common look with the german Polizei in terms of yellow stripes, I still hope one day LEGO will actually make a neon yellow color, that's as bright as the Coral color. Neon yellow Ambulance or Air Ambulance in a set could look pretty cool as well. Other then that, Police Livery colors still vary a lot across Europe and the EU, many countries don't even use yellow for their police cars at all. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Police_cars_by_country

    Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

    Double unpopular opinion : I do not like the Vidyo CMF/Bandmates (due to the way they are distributed). However I do actually like the Stage sets (on discount).

    Lego City 2022 Rumours, leaks information and discussion

    Taiga instead of jungle could be interesting, it's still forest themed, and would fit with a potential arctic wave. Still has lots of potential animals as well, and kids should know (snowy) Taiga/Mega Taiga from Minecraft and such.

    Lego City 2022 Rumours, leaks information and discussion

    Could be interesting if summer 2022 subtheme was a mix of Arctic and Forest, since most pine Taiga forests have snowy climate in winter and border tundras/glaciers.
  8. My "dark ages" started around 2001, other interests and LEGO's decline for a while (Bionicle/Star Wars weren't my big interests, but I did have most Slizers from 1999-2000 beside the 2 big ones) made me not care too much about toys, and video games were in a rapid developing era, and internet at the time wasn't yet mainstream enough to be considered the main source of LEGO info/sales. LEGO also had a few year break from themes like Town / Castle / Space , and 2001-2004 was a major time for the then highly discussed Warcraft franchise (Warcraft 3 / World of Warcraft), I still love the franchise, just not the current state of the video games. If LEGO ever did a Warcraft theme I'd be interested, not in all this microtransaction video game/mounts and such they do nowadays. Came back to LEGO when rebuilding old sets around 2015, and then looked up upcoming themes and saw Nexo Knights for 2016, and after that ended, mostly switched to City/3-in-1.

    Size of photos allowed

    I like that this site offers option to scale down linked images (double click on them when posting) For example , this is the same image linked from Brickset in 50 - 100 - 150 pixel resize (the original is 1024 wide and you can still click on it to view it). For quick uploads I usually post at imgur, but I don't really use that for albums/long term storage.

    LEGO Trains 2021

    Right now the Briclink Studgate is the only known future train set, but even if it does get crowdfunded this year, it will take a while to actually be shipped, I don't think a set like that would ever be made in mass by LEGO otherwise. There's the large IDEAS voting round with some trains, but even there I expect those products to be moved to Bricklink rather then be picked out of the 50+ projects. 2022 City trains are very likely as the 4 year pattern has been consistent for a long time.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    A lot of unlicensed exclusive set fall under 3-in-1 (Castle/Aquarium) and City (Car Transporter/Shopping Street) nowadays, exclusive as in , almost not sold outside of LEGO.com, and discounts even less so.

    Lego City 2022 Rumours, leaks information and discussion

    I think this is more likely, 2021 Tractor , to 2022 farm something, Horse trailer just adds to that. 2019 had a Snow Groomer and the Ski Resort at the end of that year, so Horse Trailer could still lead to something like a 1-off farm location set. And then also 2021 had a Beach Rescue ATV , 2022 has a rescue helicopter, and a lifeguard post, I still think that might be the 2022 version of Coast Guard, since Police already has a big boat, and there's the 2021 set with the seaside mission. At most, I think if there's something Arctic, it'd be a research vessel/icebreaker as there wasn't one in 2018.

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2021

    Right now, for 3-in-1 in my country, the new Castle and Aquarium are, and the Crocodile (not the train) is also still limited but has bigger % discount. As for City, the 2020 Police Brick Box, the Safari Jeep, the Mail Plane were exclusive as well, and for 2021 the Car Transporter, Police Boat and Shopping Street, LEGO seems to have the put some rules on discount there, because if they are sold outside of LEGO.com there are either no or very small discounts only. As for other themes like IDEAS/18+/Winter village and such, also seems to be a rule of maximum 15% discount, after a certain period of LEGO.com exclusivity. The other City/3-in-1 sets appeared much wider since their launch, and that means 20%+ discount on those isn't rare. It's hard to compare countries, as each country has different store chains and web shops, but in the last 5 years I bought 99% of my LEGO online. Also prices still can vary a lot, even just western europe, prices between Netherlands/Germany/Belgium/France etc can vary €5,€10 or even €20 for the same sets which is kind of odd, it's not just the difference in VAT%. As for theme competition, Ninjago having good prices to begin with, and then fairly large discounts on top, makes it a hard competitor for Monkie Kid's full prices.

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2021

    Low sales wouldn't surprise me , full price for multiple waves of sets just isn't going to cut it against other sets/themes that have for me. And full price doesn't just mean 100% retail price, but also shipping costs, and other things, sure LEGO.com has VIP which effectively mean 5-10% off , and GWP , but those are hard to compare to themes that can get up to 30-40% off. Even if Price per part is good , I feel that measure is used too easily to determine value. No low price sets to really impulse buy/army build either. It's kind of annoying that LEGO exclusives are happening in City and Creator 3-in-1 now too.

    REVIEW: 43111 Candy Castle Stage

    I actually do like the color use, overall the vidyo candy characters mostly are focused on sweets and not fruit. I can imagine if there would be a Fairy Folk stage, it would probably have more green tints. Candy mermaid tail was made out of waffle and icecream torso, there's a icecream head person with choco sauce/torso and waffle pants, cotton candy cheerleader , and 2 transparent gummi bear like figs. At discount , I like this set better then the Car, but then again, the Car is a better starting point for MOC if you're into vehicles and robots.
