  1. 2018 Creator Sets

    Looking at the catalogue, 31077 is listed beside the the recently released modular skate house. The box dimensions are also listed as being the same as the skate house so my guess is that this one will be within the same price range and have a similar piece count to the skate house even though judging from the low quality catalogue pic it does look a bit smaller. The guy who originally pointed out these leaked sets referred to this set as the "modular pastry house" in the catalogue it is listed as "PastelerĂ­a modular Surpresas Modulares Doces". According to google this translates roughly as "modular sweets". So I think the English name for this set will end up being "modular sweet shop" or something like that. It certainly looks like a sweet/candy or ice cream shop judging by the picture more so than a pastry shop.

    This was my first thought when I heard about the pastry shop too. Having seen the picture though I'm afraid it doesn't really look as if it will fit in very well with those buildings. It looks more like a beach side ice cream shop rather than a pastry/cake shop as the title would suggest. It looks very brightly coloured and is in the new modular style similar to the recent skate house and ski lodge released at the start of January.

    Thanks so much for this. With recent reports that lego wouldn't be showing any new sets at the upcoming toy fairs I had feared it would be a long time before we got to see any of the new summer sets. You have saved the day though.

    My favourite one is the boat and the awesome pirate rollercoaster. The pastry shop looks pretty good although reminds me quite a lot of a friends set.

    Actually he is correct. If you read his post in the city thread he mentions what to search for on Google. I have just done this and one of the search results that comes up is for a pdf of the entire catalogue that can be downloaded.

    I think they look pretty good together actually. The brick built "shop" sign on GE contrasts quite well with the pink lettering on the diner.

    Over in the city 2018 rumors and discussion thread somebody is claiming to have seen a leaked copy of the summer 2018 catalogue. Amongst other things he says that creator set 31077 is called modular pastry house and 31078 is a tree house. Not sure if this is legit though.

    I have just found the following review. http://zusammengebaut.com/lego-creator-expert-amerikanisches-diner-10260-im-review-42624/ Towards the end of the review there are 2 great photos of the Diner. One shows it sandwiched between AS and PR. It looks great and the main teal tower seems to look nice beside the blue building on AS. The second photo shows DD positioned next to DO and PS. It looks very good next to the Pet Shop.

    The following set was a particular favourite of mine as a child. I'm pleased to say I still own my copy of this classic set in pristine condition including the box and instructions. I used to spend hours playing with this and I can remember trying to pose the minifigs with the doors half open as if the driver was leaning out of the cab, similar to scenes from Thomas the Tank Engine episodes. It's a shame this sort of role play would be missing from the new sets and it's just from something as simple as including a door piece which can open and close. I'm sure TLG know what they're doing though and maybe kids nowadays are not as interested in those sorts of little details.

    Anyone else think it's a shame that neither of these new trains appear to have proper doors? I know that they don't serve any real function but they just look good and I remember playing with Lego trains as a child in the 80's / early 90's, I would have been very disappointed if my trains hadn't had doors then. The same goes for all City vehicles in my opinion. I always prefer the ones with doors that can be opened and closed.

    Thanks for this. Although I had concerns about DD last week I have come to the decision now that I am going to buy it. Just want to wait till the 28th so that I will qualify for the free 60th Anniversary set as well. After watching loads of youtube videos I agree with what you say. DD does look decent next to other modulars, especially the ones with brighter colours like AS and DO.
  12. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    As others have suggested Parisian restaurant is a beautiful set, jam packed with details. This was the set that first got me interested in Modulars. It works well alongside other buildings but also makes a good stand alone building. Last years Assembly Square is brilliant though and I'd say my favourite one overall. With the extra width and the appearance of 3 buildings crammed in to one set, it kind of creates a miniature street scene on it's own even if you haven't got any other models in the series. In my opinion, Assembly Square could almost be called a Modular "Starter Set". I doubt you would be disappointed with either of these sets.
  13. 2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Over in the 2018 Lego Trains thread somebody has posted a link to reddit showing packaging shots of the 2 new City train sets, 60197 and 60198. They both look great.

    Both of these look great sets to me. Just wish the passenger train had an engine at both ends. Still looks good though.
  15. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Wow, I was all ready and set to buy DD at the end of the month but if there is a chance of cafe corner being rebooted later this year then I might just hang on to my money for now. Just found the following post from Adam White's excellent Bricksfanz website. In this he clearly mentions the rumors of a couple of past modulars possibly getting re-released in 2018. This article was from late last year around the time DD was unveiled. http://bricksfanz.com/build-your-modular-street-with-lego-creator/
