    westracing01's Race Track for Modular Buildings

    What a great placing of your latest modular acquisition! The Boutique Hotel looks really great in that corner. Would you consider relocating your Green Grocer, as it uses the same sand green color? What a unique and fantastic project you have, combining the modulars with a racing ciruit! I wish you a lot of fun!
  2. Thank you for the great review! Your great pictures and your attention for detail is very helpful and I love your pictures with relating minifigures! Despite the improved quality of the collectible minifigures, I'm still dissapointed the number of minfigures has been reduced to 12, especially since there comes only 1 non-licenced series a year. For me it feels there are less interesting minifigures. I like The Horse and Groom the most, it's such a charming couple. The Troubadour looks great and classic. It would be fantastic if he was a forebode for a neo- or retro-classic castle set. The Bird-watcher is interesting and the toucan looks great! The Forest Elf looks cute, but I wouldn't know how to use him. I would have loved the Wheelchair Racer more if the torso lacked the black bar. I don't like the fantasy warriors and I think the Space Creature looks odd.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I really love the Boutique Hotel, it is a fantastic new modular building! The hotel looks great and cosy, the gallery is a bit smaller than I expected, but it has a very fine collection! I'm really impressed by the wonderful representation of Art Nouveau architecture in LEGO parts! Like the other official modular buildings, there is a lot of detailing, which is well dosed. The detailing I love the most are the organic lines around the windows, especially above them formed by the different types of mudguards. With its references to previous modular buildings, it's a great 15th anniversary set. At first sight, I was amazed how much the Boutique Hotel resembled the Café Corner, updated with new parts, colors and techniques to nowadays standards. Like every new modular building offers innovation, this one comes with an acute (sharp) angled corner, which look great on pictures and will probably look even better and amazing in real life! I like the alley and the continued detailing on this left side. The gap on this side is less pretty and I think it will be a bit difficult to select a modular building to fit on the right side to hide the colored right side due to the short sidewalk. The placing of the Boutique Hotel will be challenging, but it will be rewarded with a fantastic sight! I'm curious if we'll see a modular Music Hall in the future!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Last year there was a user who predicted a modular building in this thread: I thought this could fit together with the description on promobricks: if the hotel terrace was thought of a secondary theme in the set, the hotel was perhaps interpreted as the gallery, since there is no big hotel sign. Maybe theremin's info was right, but was there another modular building in between! The design of the 2022 modular may have been finished over a year ago.

    I did get the original Bookshop and have bought the parts separately for the other rowhouses. I'm sorry I can't say how much it costed me, I didn't keep track of my expenses. It also makes it easier to enjoy it, expensive as LEGO is!

    It looks great (better in real life than on my picture), but I don't think LEGO will release those in different colors. I recommend everyone to start collecting the required parts and build a row of colored townhouses!

    LEGO Retro Theme Vote Winner Release?

    I guess you mean the Fan Vote for LEGO's 90th anniversary? The set is meant to be released next year, as LEGO will celebrate it's 90th anniversary in 2022. I don't expect any news before the launch of the set, since LEGO seems to want to keep the details secret. One of the most popular themes in that vote will get a set. These were the most popular themes: Bionicle, Classic Space, Pirates and Castle. Here is the Fan Vote being discussed on Eurobricks.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The Daily Bugle building looks quite impressive between the modular buildings. I'm amazed it doesn't even need the whole width of its baseplate to be a substantial tower building! IMHO the contrast in colors and in height makes up for a nice visual effect, which makes the standard modulars really shine. Does anyone plan to add the Daily Bugle to their collection or have you already done so? I am quite interested, but since I'm not into licenced stuff, I would remplace the minifigures and adjust the signage. The biggest challenge however would be to add a working elevator. The lack hereoff and especially the fake elevator doors in the set are a big turn off for me. I suspect it would have been handled differently in a standard modular set. I'm curious if there will be an elevator in a modular anytime soon, since the only one we have seen has been a while ago, in the Town Hall.

    Thank you for the notification, I'm going to try to get one tomorrow! I think the 40487 Sailboat Adventure looks great, the original submission hasn't been tweaked much at all. Too bad of the terrifying purchase treshold!

    Those will be fine GWP sets! The sailing ship would make a great summer set. I guess it will come in August. The timing of development would concur with the Vintage Car.

    Has anyone an idea when we can expect the Sailing Ship Adventure that won the contest last summer to become a GWP? I really hope it lasts longer than the Vintage Car in january. Having experienced today's Bricklink fiasco, I already feel stressed out just thinking about trying to get the ship!

    It's a bracket piece that's missing! I made you this picture: Record Store Sign on Flickr I hope this helps!
  13. I would have prefered 16 minifigures like in the previous series, even if that would have ment updated reissues and reinterpretations of previous characters, especially since there is only one non licensed series a year. Yet I have discovered an advantage. Having only 12 minifigures makes feeling the blind bags much easier!

    LEGO IDEAS - The Medieval Blacksmith

    This set's detailing, colors and setting are great, but as much as I want, I just can't fall in love with this set. I just keep seeing it as oversized to represent a medieval house. I was thinking of modifying it, but in lack of time and creativity to do so, I can't justify spending €169,99. Inevitably I make the comparison with Pirates of Barracuda Bay, that feels like the essence of LEGO Pirates, that I bought right away for only €199,99. The blacksmith would have benefited of being a more humble cottage, a small but important part of a medieval setting, a harbinger of more sets to come!

    Lego Ideas 90th Anniversary Fan Vote

    I ask myself if there really was a mistake? I could believe they have tried to find out which factions are the most popular ones. Who knows, the construction of a Castle set could have been started already behind the scenes.
