  1. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Another rather interesting thing that your tables show is: More or less same piece count on PR, DO, BB (yes, I know they incresead price 10$ for BB). Respectively, 7th, 10th and not even showing. Out of all these 40 sets here, funnily, I personally own just 2. DO and Kwik-E-Mart. And about if there's enough demand on the market to keep up... I'm pretty sure there is. If there wasn't, we wouldn't all be here, right now. Everybody has his own thing. Some collect Star Wars, others Winter Village seta, other 14-wide cars. There's something for everyone, I mean, it's unlikely someone would buy a Technic set and then go on and buy the Simpsons House.

    Really spectacular! I didn't know of Doozy since now, but it's the kind of thing that I usually enjoy, you know, intricate but homely places that look just stellar. And with your model... It's just very very good. Really nice tables and that lamp using the bucket

    Come on! Just colour is different! Shape and even the rooftop decorations are very similar!
  4. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I genuinely wish I knew how to put up images not-so-huge. Well, as nothing is coming up recently and everybody is talking kind of nonsense, while on a trip to Switzerland, I found this pretty much perfect replica of Assembly Square. Imagine when on the side of the road in a town called "Seelisberg", I think, I saw this beauty. I was like: "Hey! I've seen that before! ). Actually, looking at it, someone should try making that building in Assembly Square Sand Blue, as here, it looks pretty bloody perfect. I thought I wasn¡t going to see any more like this, but all around Zürich, on the not-so-famous riverside it's absolutely full of buildings just like it!

    Nice shaping on the rear spoiler!
  6. Old Town Pub [moc]

    Very very good! I trully appreciate real, phenomenally well put together modulars, and this just is spot on. I applaud your daring instincts that told you building an alleyway in the middle was a good idea. Hell it is! Beautiful! While, I've never been to Prague, the other buildings could perfectly be from England (the pub) or from my own town where I live (close to Barcelona!). I'm a sucker for perfectionist details. That tower... Just flawless, the golden lamps, the Elves keys and many many others. I trully like the olive green building. It seems like an unlikely choice for a modular - small windows, most of it run down, but it just somehow works! While I'm not 100% sold on the pub and its roof, that tower is really beautiful.

  7. Advanced build from 60154 - Bus

    I do actually like the bigger door. It's reminiscent of the modulars and it's sort of a nice touch. PriorMarcus, wonderful MOD, really nice use of the green/yellow cheese slopes on the front side of the bus and trully clever use of the newer 1x1 stud with holer and "rounded edge" on the door mirrors!

    Super! I actually own an H0 version of this and must say yours looks very very on point in many aspects. That curved windshield
  9. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Exactly. Not liking the summer release hypothesis though... No, you're not the only one. So when I entered Eurobricks for the 2nd/3rd time today and saw this topic atop of the page, I though: "Oh, there may be something actually!" Sadly not.
  10. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Okay, those are all very reasonable reasons that make my first reason crumble down, but they don't stop me from being *kind of* right in my second statement. It would gross about the same amount of money even with the higly reduced numbers, so everybody is about right on something. Nobody know for sure. We're all eagerly waiting. I honestly hoped there would have already been some news by now, but the official announcement should be in at least two weeks' time. That doesn't stop it from being weird there's no real plausible rumours yet.
  11. [MOD] Old Fishing Store into Modular

    I imagine you had great trouble splitting the roof to accomodate the tower in the first place, but maybe the one thing that draws from it is the fact that the tower is not straight in the front. Maybe you could try to move it further front, but I imagine that is very complex...
  12. [MOD] Old Fishing Store into Modular

    Gorgeous! I honestly thought when reading the title... Oh, no... What a tremendously terrible idea! Not at all! Seems to fit right in as San Francisco terraced house. Also, wounderful MOD on your GB Firehouse!

    Ninjago City has 1400 pieces more and costs just 30$/€ more. That has clearly a better price/piece ratio, but 7.8 cents/piece isn't too bad though for this set. Everything over 10 cents is basically a carnage to your wallet. I'm winking at you Minecraft and Architecture sets!
  14. 70922 The Joker Manor

    Totally. That's why I didn't include the Landmarks under the "brilliant D2Cs". I would also take a Ninjago City over Taj Mahal, or even Big Ben, but I'd take a modular over any of those. You mentioned the others as the "Good D2Cs", I don't think there's anyone in this entire planet who thinks Assault on Hoth was even remotely decent ;)

    Probably others have said this before, but high price may come from brand new rollecoaster pieces and all those fancy new decorations for the figs. Anyway, some months ago I thought that the Carousel was a "too" large of a middle-class set. 2500 seemed a bit too many pieces. Suddenly, it seems like bigger piece counts are the norm. I don't know how many of us are there to afford one/two large sets a year, but one of my two yearly picks will definitely not be this one. Fun to look at, but, when I buy a set, I'm in for the style., I'm in for a treat. I enjoy putting together something you can marvel and not only play with afterwards. Maybe it's just my point of view, but it seems like D2Cs have parted ways. There's the stylish, well put together, sleek, well-proportioned and well-coloured models, such as the Modulars, the big scale cars (Mini, CamperVan...), the amusement rides, the Winter Village sets (with some exceptions there), the Star Wars UCSs and many many others along the years. Then there's other sets, which look like lost of good intentions thrown at a bowl, not surprisingly often them being sets that recreate bigger places in movies (Batcave, Assault on Hoth and now this).
