    So, what are Leaf, IP-2 and Zebra?

    Related to an Ideas set? A new Pirate line? A new minidoll Pirate line?

    Policeman scenario = chase minifig, one per box.

    What I can do with 150cm x 50cm area

    The 32x32 studs baseplate that Creator Modulars and roadplates uses are 25x25cm. In the space you have you can line 6 Modulars buildings with roadplates in front of it. You may save some space brickbuilding the road but you won’t save enough for another line of buildings anyway.

    Those sets were not in this review.
  5. The way I do it (hard way) is to upload 2 wanted lists in Bricklink (one for the old set and one for the updated one), open each wanted list in a tab on the browser and manually filling the updated wanted list.
  6. It is a little bigger than the usual city vehicles. Actually it is more on proportion with the minifig scale. I always thought that the city vehicles are too small. But it is a great set and it fits the beach on my city layout (that still on early stages).

    I will say Haunted Mandion has a better chance. Monster themes are popular, the attraction is iconic and popular plus it is its anniversary. The Blacksmith is an amazing build but not sure how popular it would be. I can see the Persuit of Flight being a second selected project since it is small and can be a low run. Not sure how the Dwarve’s Cottage would fit with an existing Disney Princess Line.

    What happened to Bricks & Pieces?

    Hi guys! After spending more than 2 hours late night yesterday trying to order a single set (not even a P&B order) and getting the same payment error at checkout (“cannot authorize your payment at this time, please contact service support”) that I was having since the july system update of S@H, I finally made my order went through and I discovered what was causing the error (at least for me, please test this and see if it will help you too). The error happened at parsing the billing address to start the charge. The charge did not start yet, the system was preparing the fields to start the process. After messing with the billing address a lot of times I discovered that the update messed with some fields lengths. My country use a 5+3 ZIP code. That was the address stored in my profile that the system was trying to use (and also it was the shipping address). However, when trying to enter a new billing address I found out that the system only allows 4 digits ZIP codes tom y country now (!). The number of digits is specifically for each country, but my country was set wrong. I could not fill a 5 digits ZIP in a new billing address without the system returning an error in the field. So what I did was to create a new billing address with a ZIP code made of only the first 4 digits of my address. Attention, I did not change the shipping address, just the billing address. After that there was an error when the total of the basket was 0 and checkout wasn´t available. I just emptied the basket and put everything again on it. The order went fine and I was charged in my Credit Card. Hope this trick may help some of you guys with problems at checkout. But as a last note, if that works for you too, it shows that Lego TI doesn´t care. Simple as that. They were not working on a solution, because a simple checkout debug would show where the erro ris (parsing a field). Such a great TI support for a large company!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    PR is the GOAT of the modulars. Not as big as AS but a great price point for an amazing good looking set. And a big seller as well. And Lego knows it, since DO is newer than it and already retired.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    There is no way to guess which is the next to retire. Both are good possibilities. As a huge and more pricey set, I think Assembly Square will not last very long.
