    LEGO Creator 2021 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Promobricks have added a high res image of the box art for the new Lion set. The box has a new design style. They've also ditched the "3 in 1" branding and called this an "8 in 1" set. Edit... Doh... My mistake. They have used a pic of an old set 4884. At first glance I thought that was a pic of the new set.

    I can answer that one as the second example is one of my projects. To add images within the text you have to have to first post them to a host site like Flikr. You can then copy the image URL in to the text when setting up your Lego Ideas page and it will make the pictures appear within your text. It's exactly the same process that you'd use if you wanted to post pictures here on eurobricks

    Thank you very much. Yes it has taken just over a year to reach 10k.

    Thanks very much, I am over the moon that it has reached 10.000. By the way I am fully expecting your Sonic project will hit 10k within the next couple of days too so good luck! Thank you very much much @Digger of Bricks. Thanks very much. Thank you very much. To be honest I'm just really happy to have made it to 10,000. Whether or not it gets approved is out of my control but I agree, the chances of a modular being approved are slim. Having said that I did read something online last week... Lego had released a statement regarding the new Creator Fiat 500 set, justifying how it has been released soon after a similar model had been rejected on LEGO Ideas. Here's the link to their statement In part of the statement they mention why they allow projects to be submitted to LEGO Ideas even if they could be considered as overlapping with pre-existing themes. So although this statement is relating to the Creator Expert cars theme I guess it could be applied to modular buildings as well. If they were dead set against ever releasing a LEGO IDEAS modular building then surely they wouldn't allow them to be submitted in the first place. Although a modular has never been released under LEGO Ideas in the past, who knows... they might just surprise us if one come along that they like enough.

    Future Pirates Speculation

    Not sure if this has been mentioned already but the comments at the end of this article reveal a few more bits of info about the ship. Head to the end of the article and a few people have left questions about the ship which have been answered in the comments. Apparently the ship will feature 2 masts and is not quite as big as the classic pirate ships. They describe the size as being "city compatible" and that it would be the correct scale to put in a city dock. It is minifig scale and includes a few figures. The hull is completely brick built and is mostly brown but has black elements used as well.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I love it. in my opinion the best modular since assembly square. I really like the colours used and how the whole set has been given an earthy autumn kind of feel. Can't wait to see the interior. I'm guessing it will be packed with detail as the building looks pretty small considering over 2500 parts are used. If I had to make one criticism I'd say the apartment building on the right really looks as if it would benefit from having another floor added. I'm being nitpicky though. I think it looks amazing and will look awesome placed alongside Assembly Square and Parisian Restaurant. So glad they've given us a European style building this year.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    If it's true then I wonder if there will be any relevance to the reason they've decided to reveal it in Singapore. I wonder if the building will have an Asian style of architecture.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I was thinking the same. Yes it was 2pm here in the UK when the garage was revealed. Also assuming the set is released on January 1st then that will be exactly 4 weeks from today. Today would seem the perfect time to make the announcement.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    That image on the Facebook page looks a bit fake to me. The buildings in the background are similar to the graphics that Lego use on the modular box artwork but not quite the same. Also at the bottom in small print it says "2019 The Lego Group" but no copyright symbol next to it which would usually be there.
