    Ideas for New Train Sets

    I bet that if the Crocodile sells well (which I bet), then we'll see a steam locomotive with tender next year - maybe something similar to the Emerald Night, maybe something completely different like the Mallart. In contrast, which concerns (additional) waggons I'm regrettably not that optimistic that we'll get some since TLG seems to want to release only an exclusive train set which you can use in an layout as well as only for displaying - and an engine with several waggons wouldn't fit lengthwise in a regular sized showcase ... What do you think?

    LEGO VT 11.5 Trans Europ Express (TEE)

    That's a stunning model, @HoMa! If only TLG would release it - I immediately would buy it since the TEE was imo one of the nicest trains ever.

    MOC: Park der Heiligen Hurtigesse - Park of the Holy Hurtigesse

    Thanks for your feedback, @Jerry McGlade! I'm a huge fan of nature and parks - so I really enjoy building these in bricks.

    Elon's Retreat.

    That's an amazing MOC! I esp. like the small huts, the watchtower and these huge brick-built trees.

    Exceptional idea and great outcome!

    Lego 10277 - Crocodile Locomotive

    Thank you all for the information! This engine is a true beauty! Only the price is really high. And I'd have prefered it to come in green instead of brown. Plus it's a pity that the engine doesn't have an additional waggon - I personally could very well have lived without the tracks and the collector's batch included. ... But you can't have everything. I only hope that we will see the rumored elevated train nevertheless! Since 1. I always prefer a whole train over a single engine and 2. I would so much like some sort of re-design of the Airport Shuttle with the new rollercoaster tracks - it would fit perfectly in my Lego City. I bet that if the Crocodile sells well (which I bet), then we'll see a steam locomotive with tender next year - maybe something similar to the Emerald Night, maybe something completely different like the second engine you posted. In contrast, which concerns (additional) waggons I'm regrettably not that optimistic that we'll get some since TLG seems to want to release only an exclusive train set which you can use in an layout as well as only for displaying - and an engine with several waggons wouldn't fit lengthwise in a regular sized showcase ...

    [MOC] Walk-To Bakery

    Very nice walk-to bakery, @Brandon Pea! I only would suggest to lift the wall under the window one stud up.

    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Ah, good point here - I didn't think about that. Yes, that could work fine - so let's hope that this will be the case! If you did this, that would be very nice!
  9. We had that pizza suit guy piece for the melon suit girl, too. So I thought about what else can it be used for and came to the result that there could be a cheese (piece) suit minifig. What do you think?

    Ideas for CMFs

    Like always excellent work, @Robert8! I esp. like the violonist - yes, we do need a violine! I'm really looking forward to the end of this year when you're going to reveal your next series.

    Legostadt

    Yes, there actually had been one - for about eighty Euros or so - that's only ill. And then you only have one of it. But I hope that one day TLG will offer us a regular blue or dark blue bicycle in an official set. Thanks! Btw: My work for a new layout slowly comes to an end. If everything works fine, I'm going to present you a complete different and historical layout next month. Here's already a sneek peek (my work of mainly this morning): What could it be?

    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Not to exclude, but yes, really unlikely since the previous years the people pack was always shown in the summer catalogue and came into regular toy stores at the latest in August. When we trust what one of our members wrote, then we'll get one. But maybe it's the D2C set 60271 - and a D2C set never shows up in the regular customer catalogue. Plus there may be one or more sets to come on shelves in regular toy shops firstly in September - like last years amazing Ski Resort which wasn't shown in the 2019 summer customer catalogue, too. So hope for even one or two more sets (apart from the new city square and the two Special Forces sets) is little, but there is some. I can't agree more! With the Airport subtheme this year, a Fun at the Airport People Pack would have made a lot of sense: Imagine a lot of different aged and looking passengers, some old suitcases and some new suitcases, a buggy and a small airport service vehicle - now that would have had been really cool! But I would have liked an allround usuable Fun at Downtown Lego City, too: Imainge many different minifigs here, too, plus a bench, a candy trike, a small tree, some road signs and signals and a buggy - now that would have had been really cool, too! Yeah, so many great possiblites, like you said ... Here in Germany it is, too. So I'd assume that it's sold out everywhere, too.

    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    After having had a look into the complete customer catalogue for the second half of 2020 (German version) at I made following discovery: No single City set is there listed for August or later (even not the two Special Forces sets). In the last years, we've always getting minimum two civilian sets for regular sale in July or August (2019: Donut Shop Opening + 4+ Gas Station + Fun at the Fairground People Pack, 2018: Hospital + Outdoor Adventures People Pack, 2017: Bus Station + Cargo Terminal + Fun at the Beach People Pack, 2016: Gas Station + Fun in the Park People Pack, 2015: City Square). Since these had been excellent (civilian) sets, I automatically came from that this trend will hold on. It's really bad that there's nothing this summer - at the same time last year I had already built up the donut shop set and the fairground people!

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Thanks for the picture of the 2020 Elf Keychain, @TeriXeri! I don't like elves, so I don't like this key chain, too. As well as the 2020 Happy Santa Key Chain of which you can find a picture at brickset, too: Concering this year's Winter Village set: We come from that this year's Winter VIllage won't be a Creator Expert set anymore, but will already be release under the "18+" theme. The question is: Will this affect the design and the contents of the set? That's hard to say. Imo the 10273 "Haunted House" (written into quotation marks since it's no real haunted house) is a complete let-down for the Fairground theme. So closed backwalls, a house to open with hinges, no side builds, a low number of minifigures, packing too many and too different things in one set and a for a fairground completely unfitting setting (not colorful but gloomy) - big mistakes in 10273 which I hope that TLG won't deface this year's WV set with in the same manner. Since all WV sets so far link following: a detailed and lovely looking building with open backwalls and a nice and cozy interior, some fitting side builds and a lot of minifigures. If TLG didn't continue this, then they would kill the charisma of the WV theme. Since last year saw a fantasy stuff related building, I bet that this year's set will contain only realistic stuff. Since with 18+ the set may be bigger and more pricey and since there wasn't any 10th anniversary declarated set last year, I could well imagine that this year's WV set will contain either two small buildings or a big one. Maybe a town hall, a grocery or a candy shop or chocolate factory (I know, we already had the gingerbread house last year, but candy then would link these two sets - so I don't see any danger that they would compete). Which I don't see are any buildings which we've gotten so far, a sports shop since there was already released one in the fantastic Ski Resort last year and any sort of hut or hotel since it would have the same function like the gingerbread house, namely "only" a housing.

    Copenhagen Kiosk, free instructions

    That's an awesome kiosk! I really like the ambitious architecture and all the details you added around it.
