    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    I would love a water park theme... I don't think one set can do it justice really, but it seems perfect for a longer running theme like the fairground sets.

    Here's the final model od my alternate build and a couple of other pictures. Instructions are on Rebrickable if anyone is interested. https://i.imgur.com/LqxNbyX.mp4 https://imgur.com/a/ixzWy8k

    Thanks! I will of course, as soon as I finish it I should also have enough spare parts for a litter for the captain, though I'm not sure if the minifigs will be strong enough to actually carry it

    For something a bit different, I rebuilt the set as a lighthouse fortress. Still changing some things around, though I really love how it turned out. If Lego isn't going to make more Pirate sets (though the upcoming Creator one is much appreaciated), I will have to just adapt the ones they do make :D

    Friends 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    So what exactly is the point of the cubes? Is it to set up a quick ready-made play scenario? Because the ppp seems atrocious, likely due to the cubes themselves.

    Friends 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I am in love with the freshly leaked set. You're telling me I can buy a couple of those and make a nice waterfall? Until recently I never even gave the Friends sets a closer look due to how they were being marketed, the minidolls instead of minifigs and the largely pastel colors. However, I must admit that the actual builds and designs they come up with basically stand alone in the Lego lineup. Everything else focuses on vehicles while Friends almost always has a nice location to pull focus. Even in the new set, there is a small hot air balloon but a larger location piece that received a big chunk of the budget. If this trend continues, I can see Friends quickly becoming the theme I spend the most money on. If only there was a way to get the sets with minifigs instead of minidolls. I really, really hate those.

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2020

    It seems so long ago when we started speculating about this theme. Unfortunately the worst guesses for me came out to be true. There is only one pseudo-location set with everything else being vehicles and mechs. I will have to wait for the final price of the Base and the parts list but so far it doesn't seem worth it. Which is good for me, because I was planning to spend all my money on Creator anyway :D

    LEGO Creator 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Instagram. The pirate ship is great, I will be buying 3 to get all of the models. Absolutely love it. Love the ship, love the tavern. The pirate island is hard to judge but I'm sure it will make for a great set piece around the Pirate coaster. The Lunar Rover is lovely, even comes with an alien, but unfortunately not for me. It's so far removed from other themes that Lego currently produces that I have nowhere to put it. The Camper set is vehicle focused as expected; I had high hopes for the lighthouse but it doesn't seem worth it. There must be a huge amount of parts left over considering the difference between the main model and the alterante. I may pick this one up on sale and mod the lighthouse a bit.

    We are due for a nice fairground set and honestly I will take anything we haven't had before. I would one of those crazy coasters where you basically just go up and down (e.g. Kingda Ka), though that's unlikely to be doable with Lego-compatible stability standards. A drop tower would be great too, but hopefully they make it sufficiently large (i.e. taller than the coaster). Otherwise it would look really weird next to the Carousel for example.

    Same here, not much reason for me to buy the airport sets though I realize I'm hardly the target audience. On another note, anyone knows how much the Diver minifig usually goes for? I'm wondering how easy it will be to get a fever of stingrays. With the poly at around 3 EUR on sale it seems like a great value.

    I believe the hole is for lowering the submersible through it.

    The anglerfish does make the smaller of the two sets more appealing, that's for sure. Looking back at the catalog prices, the ship is the largest at 130EUR, the other set is the submarine for 30EUR (which I may actually get assuming Amazon keeps doing their regular 30% offs). So we're missing the Marine Research Base at 60 EUR and the mini-submarine at 10 EUR. I expect the mini-sub to be a slightly bigger version of the polybag, so no high hopes there. The Base will probably be similar to 60096 so the question remains whether the bulk of the pieces will be used on another vehicle (such as the plane in that set). We can only hope for a large underwater base and something it is exploring...

    Oh yeah, I may just spend my entire budget on those polybags, depending on their distribution channels :D They are everything I wanted from the "main" sets.

    Well, the latest leaks confirm my main fear - all vehicles, no locations, though I suppose that's par for the course for City :( I wonder if the boat actually floats... seems like something they're going for recently what with the recent Technic set. And I can't explain why else they would go for such "non-Lego" design with one huge hull piece.

    If not, I'm sure you can replace some of the "pillars" in the Coaster with a chunk of the ship. That's what I plan to do anyway. Can anyone smarter then me mockup which pieces the sails are made from?
