    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Now to the Great Vehicles: All in all I have to say that TLG keeps the high standard of this City subtheme - which I really appreciate: The Monster Truck looks very simple and boring. The Racing Boat Transport is more or less the same like the version of 2011 - the towing vehicle looks a bit better, but the boat itself much worse -, so really boring. And a lost opportunity to give us a much more attractive and even since long or even never seen before boat like a push boat, a small harbor tour boat, a sailing yacht etc. The Ice-Cream Truck looks great from the exterior and I highly welcome a new foodtruck. Unluckily the interior is absolutely weird with having several tiles in which the ice-cream pieces can be clipped - a huge let-down. Instead I would have liked to see one big counter in which all ice-cream pieces are - like it is in real life. The Postal Plane is a very nice set - simple, but functional and nice looking. The Street Sweeper looks so cute! The Safari Truck is simply aweseome and imo the best set of this series! The colors and desgin are perfect and that the lion woman comes with it is great, too. I don't comment on the bulldozer set since it's a Juniors and not a City set. Now to the Racing sets: The Stunt Team is a simple but nice set. On the one hand I agree with those who say that the Gas Station is too small. On the other hand its price is much lower than the one of the past one. Plus in principle everything needed is included and looks very well desigend. Plus there are two completely new cars: the SUV and the minibus which both look excellent. So all in all I'm very content with this set. The Racing Cars look very well designed! Plus I like the fact that one is an electric car (although you can argue that racing polutes our climate massively - so it's no matter whether you use an e-motor or a regular motor). The best set of this series and imo of the whole 1HY City wave at all is of course the Tuning Workshop which overbids my exceptions by far! There are so many different and amazing looking vehicles included, the caravan (altough its interior is regrettably a let-down because a table and a second chair are missing), the dog's hut and all that acessory make it looking absolutely realistic. Not to speak about the building itself with is imo a masterpiece: awesome and absolutely realisitc exterior as well as a very detailed interior (although it's bad that because of th 2x4 tiles in front of the working space you can't fix a minifigure there). I really hope that the summer sets will have the same standard like the Racing sets!

    Thank you very much for the information! Like always, I'm not interested in the set itself (although it's of course very well designed). But I spot some new or new colored elements which I think are very useful for the "regular" city, too: pigeon in dark azur (?) blue, leaf in lime and in yellow and a brand new element - the bird's nest - very nice!

    LEGO Creator 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Thank you all very much for the information! The toy shop looks great! There's a completely different architectual style in comparison to the last buildings. I like the facades on the front and the right side. Plus the small "tower" makes it looking really good. It's only a pity that there isn't more interior on the ground floor - esp. some more things on the wall would have been nice (only the three Lego sets make the wall looking to plain). In the rest of the sets I'm not interested. Btw: Did you notice, too, that there are (minimum) two new elements included: a 1x3x3 window frame and a 3x3 window glas? Unluckily without hinge function.
  4. I completely agree with you, Grover!

    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Thank you all very much for the info! I'll comment on the Great Vehicles and the Racing theme later, but at the moment I only wanted to share my following discovery: I looked at the detailed pics and noticed that the TV screen inside the gas station shows two soccer players and a goal. Since nearly all TV screen stickers of the past years showed things related to actual Lego sets, this made me thinking about following: Lego did conclude the license with Manchester United. Til now I thought this means that we'll get a licensed soccer theme on its own in summer 2020. Now I think different: Could it be that the 2020 summer City line will include a soccer subtheme "inspired by Manchester United" (on the lines of the 2019 space theme "inspired by NASA")? What do you mean?

    Ideas for new Architecture sets

    Thanks, ArneNielsen! I mixed that up. Now I corrected it. Of course Billund doesn't have a real skyline which you call a skyline like the one of NY etc. Nevertheless I bet that Lego fans would like a Billund "skyline" since it's the home of the brick.

    LEGO Friends 2020 - Rumours and Discussion

    The pictures can be found at https://www.thebrickfan.com/. The only set that may interest me is the Hair Salon. It seems to have some nice exterior as well as interior. Although I have to say that I'm disappointed that it is only one floor big and not that the building isn't smaller but has two floors - I hoped for something like the really amazing Art Studio from 2019.

    Thank you very much for the link, @Digger of Bricks! I completely agree with @MAH4546! These all look like Juniors / 4+ / Town Junior sets! I'm really disappointed about 1. we're getting another bank and not something new like a jewelry store and 2. even more that this bank is only one floor big - that's a big regress! Hopefully the Great Vehicles and all the other sets then in 2020 won't be that low quality than these - if nevertheless, we really will need that CIty D2C set in order to get at least one interesting and nice City set that year!

    Ideas for new Architecture sets

    Yes, these two are definately a good idea to put in! I didn't think about them - English lessons at school are already so many years ago.
  10. Thank you very much for this news, Feng-huang02961! I agree that this was totally unexpected. But these sets look completely awesome! So many details and a lot of minifigures - that's how it should be! I definately am going to buy these two sets. Btw: Does this mean that Lego plans to release some China new year sets every year from now on? If so, what could be the next? Maybe a dragon dance (yes, there was already a set this year, but it was only for displaying and so not compatible with the dragon boat race, the Chinese house and now these two sets) with some sort of Chinese Wall or a small Asian castle?
  11. Hello everybody! Now we know that next year there'll be skylines of Tokyo and Dubai. So I thought it would be interesting to collect ideas for new skylines. Here are my wishes: Hamburg (Elb Philharmony, harbor with cargo crane, fish market house, St. Pauli, town hall) Rome (Collosseum, Peter dome, remains of Forum Romanum, ...) Billund (Lego house, Lego factory, Kristiansen's house, ...) Cologne (dome, bridge, RTL building, ...) Rio de Janeiro (carneval, beach, Jesus statue on rock, ...) Washington D. C. (Capitol, White House, ...) Moscow (Kremlin, ...) Vienna (castle, Prater with ferris wheel, ...) Athens (Acropolis, remains of ancient Greek houses, ...) What would you like to see?

    Thank you very much for this information, Herky! For sure the skylines will look brilliant. Only the price is for my taste too huge.

    1. The people packs seem to be a huge success - otherwise TLG wouldn't have released even two in 2019. So we can be sure that there'll be minimum one, maybe even two sets in the 2020 summer wave, too. 2. With the huge number of sets, the subtheme of 60260-60266 can only be an explorer theme. I hope that it'll be something completely new - either desert (with pyramids and tombs) or forest (with castle ruins). But I fear that it'll be diverse again (since 2019 saw space again, too). And yes, I, too, am surprised that there hasn't been any leaks yet - not even some set descriptions. But judging how it was the last years, we can await official pics in the end of this month.

    Future Star Wars Sets

    After the two amazing micro scaled sets of Hoth and Endor I really would like to get similar ones for episode 1-4 and Rogue One: episode 1: Battle of Naboo (some buildings, one of these tan tanks and a Naboo security speeder and some micro figs) or Pod Racing Duell (platform with tower and Anakin's and his enemy's podracer) episode 2: Battle of Genosis (AT-OT, Republic Gunship and Hallfire Droid) or Genosian Arena (platform, the three columns, the three monsters and micro figs of Padme, Obi and Anakin) episode 3: Ride on the Jedi Temple (Jedi Temple, Republic Gunship and micro figs of Anakin and some Clone Troopers) or Battle of Kashyyyk (beach wirh tree hut with Clones commando base, sea with spider droid and Wookie Catamaran in the air) Rogue One: Battle of Scarif (AT-AT, the small building, the Imperial Freighter, some palms and some micro figs) episode 4: Death Star Battle (some grey scenery with a defence gun tower, Luke's X-Wing and Vader' TIE) Would you like these, too? Or do you have some interesting other ideas?
