    Detective's Office, Brick Bank and Tower Bridge retiring soon?

    @brickmeistro Regarding Detectives Office, I would definitely suggest holding out till Black Friday. It's been confirmed that in the USA the set will be reduced by 20%. I would say there's a strong chance we'll get the same offer in the UK as well.

    Really pleased to say my project, The Old Workhorse - Traction Engine is on display at Birmingham NEC in the UK, for the next 3 days (9th-11th November) at "The Classic Motor Show". The model is part of the FBHVC show stand. So if anyone is visiting The Motor Show over the weekend, you can see my model on display in Hall 5 right next to the Discovery Channel Live Stage. They have even set up a system where a member of the FBHVC can help visitors to vote for the model on the spot! Here are some pictures of the display, I've been helping to set up at Birmingham NEC.

    Wow, that's seriously impressive. There are some great Ideas projects that have just been launched over the past few weeks, including this beautiful Piano project which is doing very well indeed! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a4e4413f-8488-4551-ac9d-9e7f8c35154e

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    It would be great if they could give us some little teaser images with subtle clues as to the subject of the next set. They did this recently with the winter village fire station so why not use the same method to promote and build up anticipation for the next modular?

    Lego City 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    It does seem as if LEGO are scraping the barrel a bit with these sky police sets and trying to come up with new ideas for Police scenarios each year. Having said that I reckon kids will absolutely love these though. One of the sets rumored to be coming out was a small Police Patrol Car 60239. Have images of this one leaked yet? I'm wondering if this one will be connected to the Sky Police theme or just a generic Police car.

    Inspirational Modular and Non-Modular Building MOCs

    Just wanted to share a couple of great looking Modulars that are both alterative builds to existing LEGO sets. The Costume Shop by Lucas Bolt This is a great looking alternate build of 71040 Disney Castle. Book Shop by Inyong Lee This an alternate build of the Modular Pet Shop and another classic by @Inyongbricks There will be a long wait I'm afraid as promoting my Lego Ideas Traction Engine is taking up so much of my time. I have got plans to build a new Modular follow up to my Post Office though so I'm hoping to get cracking on that soon.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Further back in this topic around end of September @AllanSmith mentioned he'd been told that the next modular would be a garage with a vet on the second floor. Was this rumor ever disproved?

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Think I've found the source of those chinese minifigs. I've just seen a new leaked image of a set called "Chinese New Years Eve Dinner". On the picture it seems to include one of those chinese minifigs (the little girl). It looks like it is possibly a promotional set of some kind and the text on the image says it will be available from 1st January. EDIT: There is a second chinese set too called "Dragon and Lion Dance."

    Inspirational Modular and Non-Modular Building MOCs

    I agree, that water in is really impressive. This is a very pretty build! I've been trying to work out the best way to produce a thatched roof on a future MOC I've been planning, and this has given me some great inspiration! Love this one!

    is 31026 retired ? or retiring?

    When I mentioned 3 in 1 modular buildings I was referring to sets like 31069 and not the large Creator Expert Modulars. These Creator 3 in 1 Buildings have separate modules that can be broken apart and re-assembled in to different shapes and formats. All the current Creator buildings seem to have adopted this new "module" system and they're not really compatible alongside the old foldable Creator 3 in 1 buildings like 31026 you mentioned in your original post.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    If the text in the middle is related to the shop selling them, then does that suggest that they are already for sale? If that's the case I wonder if these are custom minifigures and not official ones. I've been thinking more about the idea of whether these could be part of the next modular. They do seem to be a just a generic Chinese family and don't look as if they've got specific roles or jobs connected to any particular theme of building. Considering that most Moduars, have around 5 or 6 minifigures included then that would mean that these three characters would take up half of the total minifigs for the new set. It would only leave space for 2 or 3 other figures to represent all the workers, business owners etc that we'd normally see in the modular buildings.

    [MOC] Miniature Steam Machines

    Thanks very much, pleased you like them. And thanks for the tip about swapping the parts. Yes that one you suggested might look a bit more discreet, especially at this small scale.

    Lego City 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    When I checked online earlier this afternoon some fairly decent quality images had leaked showing sky police, the harvest transporter, the small Digger/front loader and the snow machine (not sure of its proper name). Just checked again though and the images have now been taken down.

    Lego City 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    The harvest transporter looks pretty great! Another shot shows what looks like the bottom half of the garbage truck. Hard to tell much about that one at this point. I really like the look of the little front loader vehicle and the snow vehicle.
