  1. 2018 Lego Trains

    I wish real world trains would use roof cranes and ladders to get passengers in and out. I for one am sick and tired of using train doors. It just seems so mundane by comparison.
  2. Future Castle Sets?

    I think wall/partial building sets sometimes get criticised as they are perceived as poor value props for selling the figs that are hard to re-use for anything else. 79007 Battle at the Black Gate was the same price as 76088 Thor vs Arena clash at about $60 - yet the former is a much better value set and much easier to re-use due to the color palette. For the record, i’d also buy multiples of a reissue of 6059 with new heraldry - so you have at least 3 AFOLs just in this thread who can appreciate a well executed and good value wall/partial building set.

    Ooh that sounds interesting. One of the downsides with the currently available 3rd party Bluetooth controllers is that they rely on smartphones as the control interface. It will be great to get an actual physical Bluetooth controller. Now I just hope the PfX guys can can support that physical controller when it comes out (I’ve got 5 of those Pfx bricks on the way..)

    Now that’s a great idea !
  5. Future Castle Sets?

    Erm... I think you might be reading too much into it. Wasn’t Nexo Knights just a thinly veiled rip off of Visionaries? :) Anyway, personally I thought it was an abomination and I won’t be shedding a tear at its passing (sorry to those who really liked it) As for the future of the castle theme, much as I’d like to see the return of a classic evergreen Castle theme complete with traditional medieval castles and factions, I have my doubts that we’ll ever see that again (much as I’d like to be wrong about that) I think there may be more hope of a general history theme with waves taken from different epochs/civilisations in history - similar to what Playmobil are doing. Personally I’d be very happy with something like that.

    @AlmightyArjen - the rumours are still rumours. I have seen nothing so far to substantiate them but equally have seen nothing to debunk them either. However, a station in the summer wave would have leaked by now, and a station in the winter wave would clash with the presumed return of the Winter Village Station, so I personally doubt there will be a new station set this year (much as I’d like one) With regard to a HP themed station - how about a HP themed Kings Cross - would you still be unhappy with that? only joking- I doubt we would ever get something like that (again, much as I’d like one..)
  7. PFx Brick for Trains, Kickstarter

    I’m still waiting for my pledge (5 * deluxe packs). Have been told it will be another month or so. Which suits me at the moment as I’ve been very busy with work recently. Anyhow, some people have already got theirs and there are a few projects beginning to appear online- this is a nice one showing off the sound effects:

    I think it’s pretty much a nailed on certainty that there *will* be another Hogwarts Express at some stage - the golden question is just when. I think they may go for it either this Christmas or next Christmas to appeal to the holiday train market as well as HP fans

    @Capparezza - repetition of “iconic” vehicles never seems to be a problem in other licensed themes - how many X-wings, Millenium Falcons and Batmobiles have we had now? I think Hogwarts Express can be seen in a similar light
  10. 2018 Lego Trains

    Agree - It’s actually quite a big straw by EB standards.. An updated Hogwarts Express is a no brainier for a rebooted HP theme. My guess is with the winter village train having had its second outing and destined for retirement, they may go for a HE set this Christmas for that sweet crossover appeal
  11. [MOC] AGV High Speed Train

    Amazing moc - with some really cool mechanisms. The lift off carriages remind me a bit of the passenger carriages in 4559 Cargo Railway :) Def deserves a place on the front page. MODs make it happen please.
  12. 2018 Lego Trains

    That's inspired. I love MOCs that use otherwise fairly useless pieces like that. Either works for me tbh.
  13. 2018 Lego Trains

    Good call - that would be awesome. Ideally packaged with some Pullman carriages with proper train windows and doors How did you build that curved, ribbed station roof? It almost looks like curved track sections used as supports
  14. 2018 Lego Trains

    That's a shame. I don't think there was any flat straight track in the Pirate Roller Coaster set either.
  15. 2018 Lego Trains

    Ok thanks for confirming @Digger of Bricks - It will be good to get more of that track in LBG if nothing else.
