    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Thank you very much for the information, @Brick Clicker ! So this supposably means two more weeks to wait for the reveal. I really dislike it that Lego doesn't tease anything, doesn't give any information yet - in former times this company was much nicer! ☹️ Together with the partly enormous prices, the bad quality of some bricks and that apart from Fantasy and City themed sets there do exist (apart from a very limited number of standalone sets) only licensed products, I more and more do understand why people more and more buy sets from alternate bricks companies ...

    Lego City 2023 Leaks, Rumours, Speculation And Discussion

    Yes, that could well be. Oh, if designed great, this would be a dream becoming real! And then there should be an exclusive set with some mountain hut, a canyon with a bridge and a double rotor helicopter ... still dreaming ...

    Lego City 2023 Leaks, Rumours, Speculation And Discussion

    Nope. This shop did a mistake. Brickmerge lists the set with the German name "Hauptquartier der Rettungsfahrzeuge", which is directly translated into English "Headquarters of the Rescue Vehicles". So ist's definately a paramedic set. This would even make sense to go along with the Offroad Ambulance GWP (you already mentioned) in February. I could well imagine it being about the size of the fire station from 2022, but including an ambulance and a doctor's car or a small copter instead.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    But only a park for the WV as a set on its own does sound everything other than promising to me - we already got a gazebo as well as an ice-skating rink. Like @Arstotle , I'd prefer a new shop - the last one was back in 2010 (the bakery).

    Lego City 2023 Leaks, Rumours, Speculation And Discussion

    Thank you very much for the information, @Powered by Bricks ! 🙂 Police Academy and Emergeny HQ and the smaller Great Vehicles sound very interesting. Hopefully the Garage will be a regular and nice set - and no 4+ set or only very rudimentary built building. Since otherwise this would mean that - in contrast to the last two years - there wouldn't be a single civilian building in the winter wave. I personally imagine that the fire station and police station won't be add-ons to the 2022 stations, but either 4+ sets or some kind of brick boxes (like there was one with a police station some years ago). But I would be glad to be proven wrong.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Since there is already the ice-skating scenery with ice sculptures etc. in the Chinese New Year theme, I can't imagine Lego to release something very, very similar the same year - consequently I bet this rumor is fake. I personally bet that we'll get either a candy shop, a town hall or a new Winter Village Market.
  7. Thank you very much for the news! Here are my thoughts about the Viking Ship: - much too expensive (80 Euro would be a good price) - only four minifigs included - brick built sail - missing helms - B model and C model look bad - very simple styled weappons + brick built hull looks amazing + great new torso prints + nice new minifigure headgear + very detailed + albeit brick built, the sail as well as the snake look brilliant

    LEGO Trains 2022

    Thank you very much for the news! Altough I've got some things to critisize, I really like the new Cargo Train: - cars have no car doors - brown color for the countainers looks like if they were rusted - no trap at both sides of the car carriage so, when you buy two sets, you could drive with the cars from one to the other carriage - missing truck to transport the containers / goods / loading station / cars to the terminal - no building included + great accessory + electric loading station is a funny idea + amazing looking engine + great to get this new kind of car carriage + awesome container stacker + good minifigure selection

    Lego City 2022 Rumours, Leaks, Information And Discussion

    Thank you all very much for the news! Here are my thoughts on the new sets so far: Hen House: + quad included + hens in new color - quad has too big box in its back - a rooster is missing so much - rudimentary styled and mucht to small and in contrast much to tall building - much to big eggs (Why didn't they use those which were included in the easter bunny with scooter set some time ago?!) Vegetable Van: - would have prefered a kid instead of a second man + good price ratio performance + vehicle has car doors as well as doors in the back + great to get another food truck (We need even more of them!!!) + good minifigure selection + new amazing plants + lovely vegetable patch + a lot of accessory Farm 4+: + many new amazing animals + a lot of accessory - boring minifigure selection - rudimentary styled buildings - very simple tractor and trailer - really a pity that we didn't get a regular, meaning non-4+ farm Electric Scooters: + nice minifigure selection - one more minifigure is missing - azur as color of the scooters - rudimentary styled loading station I'm excited for pics of the rest of the summer sets (but not the Stuntz sets since I'm not interested in them). Since JB is going to sell the new sets from 00:01 MET onwoards, I guess that the pics will appear at exact the same time. Like the new cargo train, the train station will be an exclusive set (only at S@H and some special toy shops). So I'm not surprised that JB won't sell this and so isn't going to show pics of it.

    [MOC] Modern Copenhagen Townhouse

    Wow, that's an excellent MOC! I like all these nice little details and the modern architecture.

    Future Castle Sets?

    With the tons of exclusive licensed sets Lego is releasing every year, it should in principle be no problem to release an exclusive set of all "classic" Lego themes for the 90th anniversary of Lego - Classic, City, Space, Castle, Pirates and Technic. But I fear that TLG is preferring to release licensed sets instead since this way they can spend the money for the creative development of their products; plus it is always said that they make more profit with licensed products. How poor today's Lego world is (for kids) with offering only Classic, Creator and City / Friends - and everything other doesn't exist anymore or only as a license!

    Lego City 2022 Rumours, Leaks, Information And Discussion

    I've noticed this development already last year, but looking at (not all but) the most of this year's City vehicles, it's getting even more obviously: - car doors are cancelled - cars look blocky - massive lack of details (missing lights, stickers, ...) It seems as if Lego wants to maximize its profit by going back to standards of very early City (2005-2007) or even Town Junior. That's a bad development! Do you agree with me? PS: Only compare the Great Vehicles theme from this year with the one from e. g. 2016.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Thank you very much for the news! I'm glad that we finally get a new (CE) fairground ride. And a rollercoaster with loop sounds promising. Nevertheless there have been already two rollercoasters before (the CE one and the Creator 3 in 1 one). So I would much more have prefered a completely new fairground ride.
  14. Thank you very much for the news, @The Stud! Since I always prefer unlicensed Lego products over licensed ones, I really like it that we're getting a second unlicensed series this year! Could the 90th anniversary of Lego series include 12 minifigs of the most famous past and current unlicensed themes (like City, Friends, Castle, Space, Pirates, Adventurers, Western, Ninjago, Atlantis, Technic, Ice Planet and Duplo)?
  15. Thank you very much for the information, @Jiesdeo! This is exactly my thought, too! I hoped that it'll be the size of the Pet Shop & Café (imo the best Creator 3 in 1 set so far), but the piece count says that it more will have the Toy Store size. Nevertheless I'm looking forward to it - hopefully it'll have an open back or at least an intelligent opening mechanism that it looks good from in- and outside when opened, too.
