    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Discontinued? Why the 3.5.4 update released only a week ago (including new ghosts) then? Just a final last Halloween season hurrah?

    If that’s 300 euro, it can be powered by a micro cold fusion cell and I’ll still pass. Insane price. The OFS in my house is sat alongside the HS lighthouse (which this just looks like a bigger more boring version of). Sure at almost equal heights, it’s out of scale but still looks great, especially adorned with various suitable minifigs. Honestly I’ve better uses (Knights’ Castle) for 300+ notes than this IDEAS set, motorised or not. Oh and just as a comparison, this new lighthouse if the price rumour is true, works out at almost double the OFS price for an almost identical part number. Just let that sink in…
  3. Ah, so it’s an inside reference. Lost on me haha
  4. Err, in what way exactly??? I’ll be modding that ridiculously clunky and long sticky out strut and place Vincent more flush within his own painting First the Giza pyramid and now this, never mind this year, how about this month! 😆
  5. That’s an embarrassing post tbh. The price isn’t “totally out of touch” and your comparison is ludicrous. Sorry to be harsh.
  6. Never has the phrase “knocked it out of the park” been so apt. Every lacklustre mediocre touristy “architecture” set of the last few few years is now forgotten. This is a BEAUTY and everything I didn’t dare hope for
  7. All this discussion and description sounds to me like it will very similar in size, layout and scope as the Pharaoh's Quest scorpion pyramid, except "adultified".
  8. @Herky Yes that’s the one!
  9. At that price, I’m praying they go for detail AND an interior of sorts, not just scale. FWIW, the PQ pyramid was about the same price back in the day, and what a fantastic set that was.
  10. It’s a lovely set and I imagine that within the year, it’ll be sold openly in Billund. In fact, it’s basically the next LEGI House 21037 (which was sold at Billund and eventually even went online S@H in the UK and Europe for a limited time). It’s just employees get the early VIP treatment here. That’s what I’m hoping anyway - and reassured by the Architecture branding also - because if this really is a one-off exclusive for employees and Campus launch opening guests only, it’s a massive slap in the face of us Architecture fans and god knows we’ve had a good few slaps already over the past few years.
  11. Finally some promising news… 31207 Museum of Modern Art (MoMA New York) 2870 bricks £69.99/€74.99/$79.99 Released Jun 1st Hopefully they do the building and atrium with garden, justice. Also hopefully TLG don’t let today’s stabbings/attack on museum staff by a disgruntled nutcase, affect anything like it did with the sheer horror of Mandalay Bay and the LV skyline. Truly horrible thing to hear, thankfully all victims non-critical and stable it seems.
  12. I’m not so convinced TLG’s “religion avoidance” is still a thing (the reissue of the Taj Mahal for one thing) but either way, it’s still an iconic world famous statue synonymous with Brasil, on a continent long overdue representation in this theme.
  13. Knowing TLG, it’ll just be a composite skyline of Eiffel, Liberty, Big Ben etc 🙄 Seriously though, if we take that codename to be a thinly-veiled reference to the modern day wonders of the world, there’s several standouts they haven’t touched before… New Seven Wonders of the World Great Wall of China. Great Wall of China. ... Chichén Itzá, Mexico. ... Petra. the Khaznah. ... Machu Picchu, Peru. ... Christ the Redeemer. Rio de Janeiro ... Colosseum. Colosseum. ... Taj Mahal. Taj Mahal.
  14. Think you might want to check your own spelling there 😉 Insomniac - someone who regularly can’t sleep, and exhausted and desperate will usually try every remedy possible. I was obviously suggesting building this set would be a cure.
