    Lego City 2022 Rumours, Leaks, Information And Discussion

    Anyone notice the half road plate with that crane set? I wonder what variations of the new road system we will get. Could certainly do with some curves

    I thought there was a car and a Jeep from one of the teasers?

    LEGO Stranger Things Rumours Discussion

    Not just an amazing looking set but the balance of the design from that side pic! The flat tree top and heavier build on the back to balance the weight of both vehicles. Can't wait to see Jang review this one and better yet to sort all the pieces at once and enjoy the build old school.
  6. It's available on S@H for pre order and shipping on Dec 1
  7. Not to add fuel to the fire but why is MBS not branded on the Cloud City set? Surely the decision about MBS was made long before the release so a new box design with MBS on it would have avoided most of the complaints about it and drummed up excitement instead. Seems like LEGO missed a beat here either way I have the Sandcrawler, Deathstar, MF and Slave 1. So 50/50 UCS and MBS. Display vs play is a good description and I think its a good move by LEGO, albeit odd how it came out
  8. I think no matter what TLG created there would be complaints. If this was perfect in every way then the complaint would be about stickers. If it was €100 cheaper, a brilliant build but fewer MFs and no exclusives = complaints. If they went twice as big UCS MF style and it was as amazing as that (despite the MF complaints and sticker complaints) folk would complaint about the price, exclusivity etc.. I don't mind a mix of Play and Display for these big expensive sets. Some are more display and others play. I guess those that hate the Death Star (Version 2) will not like this as its the same play idea. Only better in my opinion. The minifigures are apt for each scene and brilliantly detailed. The scenes are all quality but of course you could MOD to improve again to your own spec. 4 sectors of details scenes plus a Cloud Car and Slave 1. That Slave 1 is a little baby brother of the UCS and like the new X wing and Tie Fighter playsets, indicative of the lessons that Master Builders have learned from the more successful UCS. I was excited to see this. I have no old Cloud City sets (apart from UCS Slave 1) and this is a marvelous addition. 20 MFs! (Inc the droids) and 2 vehicles. I thought the Price Point at 350 and 0.12ppp was not bad in context with SW sets pricing in general this year (which are on average more like 0.14ppp) but €400 in Ireland is the stinker for me. I'd be a day 1 on €350 but at €400 I'm now in a dilemma with the Hogwarts Castle. I'll still 100% get this and it won't sit on a shelf gathering dust.

    2018 Lego Trains

    I had a chat session with TLG recently. Usually very good. I asked if I could get the parts for a second passenger 60197 and was told to go onto the bricks n pieces section and do it myself. some of those pieces are out of stock. I asked if this was surely a Frequently Asked Question but the chat dropped. Usually brilliant, but brutal this time. Surely LEGO know that most people buying or getting trains as presents would love a longer train. My almost 2 year old has inherited a trough of duplo from his sister and he is mainly interested in making the longest train he can (with towers on top). I reckon that if the did an extra car set separately, most people would add one or more to their cart upon first purchase of the train itself.

    would love to see a pic of the 2 sets together. I'm on the fence. I'll either get 2 or none.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Thanks, it was in Smyths. Probably more a Star Wars fan but I like Harry Potter a lot and actually like Fantastic beasts as a canon of the Wizarding World. I will get the D2C Hogwarts Castle but I'm waiting for the Cloud City reveal and will likely get that first. I'm in the middle of reading the books for the 3rd time! I wasn't too disappointed with the duplicates. I may even get a 2nd Graves (if the resellers leave any behind ?) so I can have Grindelwald. The additional Cho fig can easily be changed to a random other Ravenclaw. Having 2x Hermione and you can put her in 2 classrooms at once like in Prisoner of Azkaban. It hasn't prompted me to collected any other CMFs but I'll get the next Harry Potter set and obviously if they ever do a Star Wars series..
