  1. [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    Looks amazing, like usual, thanks a lot LegoSjaak! Can't wait to see it in your layout, wonder where it will fit.. Looking forward! If I would take time, I would make a single story building XL, only keeping the dinner part and placing it in a middle of a crossroad as a standalone..
  2. [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    Same for me... any chance to complain and get some free VIP points ;-) I placed the two transparent cup pieces on the bar, below the orange/green juice distributors, they hold perfectly.. For the pancake, have to figure it out..

    Don't have the choice, ordered :-)

    That was second degree... done on purpose
  5. [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    Yes there is definitely a step change in the approach to modulars, being style, no more classic heads, more secret before release, story telling in a different way (can't really explain why), a very different designer video (I really enjoyed it - even if I dislike the Dinner at first sight), now will it be successful..? I bet yes. I will be buying the set anyway and I am sure many of the collectors as well, plus some new customers maybe.. I think with this set, TLG has targeted younger fans (size, story telling, car, new faces..), current ones (60's style, different color scheme, techniques, corner/non-corner..) and older ones (time reference, looks a little like town plan somehow, marketing approach - when I was a kid, I .. -). I was not fond of this building at all when the first picture leaked, I am still not in love like with PR, but I definitely like it more, thanks to the new marketing approach, buzz, designers' video, new style.. controversy.. well done TLG!

    Besides CC when it got out.. And then all the "after build commentaries" were taken into account in GG, can't remember such debates at that time.. I think it started with FB.. Also, how are we gonna do now, Diner.. only one word, after CC, MS, GG, GB, GE, PS... only "D" c'mon..

    That made me laugh! Thanks Brick Dangerous! I might get 2 sets but would try to make one big single story building with nice round corners, that's for me the essence of a dinner, nothing higher than one floor and rounded corners, + the big Diner sign Then I would place it in the middle of my city, in between road plates, not sitting next to another modular.. At least that's the plan without full fledged picture of the set..

    Me too, I just spend all my creativity at work and when I do "Lego", I just enjoy the relaxing and meditative effect of building, being surprised by new techniques etc.. As for the colors and so on, everyone's opinion is legit and none should criticize others' opinions... You're not alone :-) Sometimes there is traction about a city layout, sometimes not.. it was more the case 5-6 years ago, but nowadays there is much more traction on incredible MOCs, and there are plenty of them.. Not fond of the diner as it is today, but I already know I will have to get it. Cheers!

    Yep! i was looking at a plain black complicated antenna, but you're right, this could be it, well spotted! If this is legit, you're probably right ;-)

    OMG, did not even think of it.. but if it has some hints (don't know the word in English) with the Edward Hopper painting ({"x"%3A0.5%2C"y"%3A0.5%2C"z"%3A9.879671857123121%2C"size"%3A{"width"%3A1.3871118164062495%2C"height"%3A1.6783109465676536}}) then it is a must buy on day one for me, even if I don't love it at first sight seeing the exterior..
  11. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    That'd be a great addition to the Modular City Boettner Builds, great idea.. It would bring something fresh and new :-) But where would be the antenna hiding?
  12. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    That would make a lot of food in the street - 2 restaurants (PR + 10260), 2 Cafés (CC + AS), a Food market (MS), a bakery (AS), Junk food (PC).. Anyhow, I pretty much like the overall look and feel but really dislike the flat rooftop.. that takes a bit of ancient but not really 60's like..
  13. History of Magic Museum Modular Building

    Supported! I really like both interior and exterior. I love the inverted corner and the fact that it is 16 stud wide, we miss 16 wides.. And also bravo for the well reconstituted illusions, you did a fantastic job!

    Disappointing for me as well, got the sydney opera and don't know what to do with it.. Big Ben is a good parts bag, so I can reuse it, but the Taj Mahal jus't won't make it for me.. The eiffel tower would have been something I could have reused n my town.. As far as modular, I am not a fan of post office or police station (we have DO for that), but would be more interested in something more original.. like a video tape renting and appartment combo, or one of these magnificient condo - we definitely need more space to host our minifigs :-)

    I would rate GG as European too actually, but you're right, no Italian typical one yet. As the architecture there is so magnificent, we definitely need one!
