    LEGO IDEAS - The Medieval Blacksmith

    Without doubts the house looks nice. Plus mainly the carriage, the minifigures and the new colored horse are brilliant. But, like I already feared, this set is not of interest for me: over-detailed exterior looks more like BlueBrixx or Cobi than like Lego closed back and even no hinge mechanism to have two houses with open backs (like e. g. in 10193) because of these the set doesn't fit together with 10193 and the Kingdoms sets 150 Euros for only a 2,5 floors big building is usury

    [MOC] Big Farm with barn, tree and wind wheel - Instructions available

    Wow, so far this looks amazing!

    [MOC] The Village Post Office

    That's a stunning MOC! It has so many realistic and lovely details outside as well as inside plus has an open back which would make it go perfectly with City sets - I'd buy this as an Ideas set and therefore voted for it.

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    I agree that some Australian animals would be great, too (esp. the kangaroo you mentioned) - plus of course animals from all over the world, on land, in water and in the sky. But since TLG needs to work profitable, I can't imagine the Wildlife theme taking part in different regions of the world since this would require too many new moulds which then are only used in one set each. So I bet that theme is based on safari / savannah since this is what is likely the most known and popular wildlife and even the subtheme under wildlife we have been demanding the last year the most. I count on one recolored animal (e. g. zebra), an animal using an alrealdy existing body part and only a new part for the head (e. g. male lion) and two completely new animal moulds (e. g. giraffe and suricate). Plus of course some already existing birds, snakes and spiders - maybe even in new colors. Well, we'll see.

    LEGO Creator 2021 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    The only thing I'm really disappointed about is that there isn't going to be a single townhouse in the vain of 31097 Townhouse Pet Shop & Café (imo the best Creator 3 in 1 set ever) or 31105 Townhouse Toy Store this year! The last years these always have been the Creator (3 in 1) sets I really have been looking for and mostly have bought them, too, because they have gone perfectly with City houses. In contrast, this year's safari tree hut and surfer beach house sadly have closed backwalls. Yes, the beach house has that hinge mechanism - but (like the pictures show) when you move it in the position that the back of the hut is open to see its interior and then display it this way, the house looks really weird. So I hope that this summer TLG then will release at least a D2C Creator set like 40305 Lego Brand Store (but this time please not again a Lego Store but a different store)!

    Seasonal 2021

    According to stonewars there's going to be another (likely) GWP: 40502 The Brick Moulding Machine - GWP (with 85 or 150 Euros - depending on its size) ? - April / May / June ? (Stonewars thinks that it already may be released in March, but with the other GWPs above I can't imagine that.) Btw: Thanks for the picture of the Easter Bunny, @JintaiZ! Imo it looks very nice and has a completely new style while sitting on all four pads.

    LEGO Titanic 2021 Rumour

    Thank you very much for the news! A Titanic could indeed be great. But what always has been fascinating me about the Titanic is less the outside of the ship but more its amazing interior. So I hope that the Lego version of it either will have one side closed and one side open to look at the interior (imo the unlikelier version) or to be closed all around but have some sections to put out to see some of the most popular interior sections like the bis stairs with the clock, the bridge, the carport, the sports room, an indoor swimming-pool, an engine room and a room of the first, second and third class - due to the size of the ship everything of course needed supposably to be built in microfigure (not minifigure) size. Would you like some interior, too?

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    60300-60302 will be the regular sold Wildlife sets. Since 60300 Wildlife Operations is rumored to be already 100 Euros, I bet it'll be the flagship set of this subtheme. So I guess that 60307 Wildlife Camp with its rumored 120 Euros is going to be this year's summer D2C set (like the rocket assembly and launch in 2019). Since within the Stunts and Wildlife subthemes there are already some big sets, I'd count on the Police set to be not a big but a medium sized set. Earlier some here supposed that it will be a big mobile command unit (which may well be since last year there was "only" a small one). Or - since there doesn't seem to be a single civilian set / house in summer - I could imagine a police mission at a museum break-in or jewelry break-in. PS: When looking at pictures of safari, they often show that classic sunset with giraffes and these typical savannah trees. So I really hope that both elements will be included in the Wildlife sets! Plus I must say that the Stunt Show Arena will - if anyway - only be interesting for me if it included a big grandstand and a TV team.

    Friends 2021 - Rumours & Discussion

    Yes, you're absolutely right: 1. Indeed this year the style of the Friends houses increases much. 2. I, too, combine City with Creator 3 in 1 houses and even some Friends houses mainly we til now haven't gotten in City so far (beach hut, juice bar, ...). 3. I bet that it'll be an elementary school, too.

    Future Castle Sets?

    I completely agree with you - that's what I meant. "Non-fantasy" in Lego's themes of course doesn't mean hundred percent historic accurateness, but the absence of fantasy creatures (like in Castle 2007-2009) and no video game look (like in Castle 2013). So the last "non-fantasy" Castle theme was Kingdoms (2010-12) - imo the best Castle theme ever.

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    I completely agree with you! There are enough AFOLs like you and me which aren't that glad with many regular City sets but which don't want modular builings. In between there's a big gap: City style houses with open backs but more depth, more floors and more civilian oriented (shops, apartments and offices) and specialized vehicles (e. g. commuter train, fire fighting train, pleasure cruiser, big container ship). But I think we should discuss this better in the "Ideas for new City sets" topic - otherwise we're getting too much off-topic. ?

    LEGO Creator 2021 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Oh no! ? I hope you get it built up soon again. Unluckily we have to count with brick built animals ... I sadly see no moulded animals in a Creator 3 in 1 set. But I hope that I'm wrong. For sure it will have two building alternates. I agree in the village square as alternate build. But I don't see a windmill - perhaps there could be a blacksmith shop or farm instead.

    Future Castle Sets?

    I disliked the 2013 Castle theme: The minifigs looked to colorful and cartoonish and the castle looked like a license from a vieo game. Imo Kingdoms was the til now most historical accurate and nicest looking Castle theme of this century with even some great civilian sets. And the Medieval Market Village was of course stunning, too. See below. Since the set name is "Medieval Castle", I'd das it's obvious that the set will be a non-fantasy castle looking like in the Middle Age.

    LEGO Creator 2021 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    I completely agree with you which concerns the UFO carousel, @RichardGoring. But I personally fear that the Ferris Wheel will look strange and too small - esp. next to the Creator Expert one. Nevertheless I count on a very nice alternate fairground ride as the second and / or third building possibility. Btw: Because of Friends getting a whole fairground subtheme and here in Creator 3 in 1 being a ferris wheel, I hope that there'll be a fairground set in the 18+ series nevertheless, too - only not if it would be done as bad as the "Haunted House" last year (which I didn't buy).

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    Yes, I completely agree to you. Because of last year's Safari Offroad Truck with the lioness in City and because safari / savannah is very popular, I'd count on savannah animals such as you listed. But of course the setting can be completely anywhere else or there could be different settings and types of animals such as @Robert8 suggested. Mayybe TLG reprints the deer as a gazelle and / or the horse as a zebra.
