    Pictures of the box have leaked. Looks really lovely, hopefully the suggested 80€ will translate to no more than £70. I will definitely try to buy it for Christmas, just need to be sure when will the GWPs in the UK be.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Wouldn't be much of a leak if it was scheduled

    The "leaked" image is of the project itself, not the final product. Unless they didn't change anything, including STAMPs

    Fantastic! I was really hoping for the Treehouse to be approved ever since I first saw it. I believe it was still under 1000 votes when I supported the project. And it achieved 10k quite fast, too, which got my hopes way too high, something I try to avoid since Lego isn't too keen on chosing larger Ideas. But lo and behold, the project is being made and I couldn't be happier The Flintstones being also chosen is a nice surprise, too. I'm curious how the designer will manage to redesign the car to make the minifigs touch the ground - a little detail mr. AndrewClark2 seems to have forgotten about I also wonder if it's going to come out in 2020, the show's 60th anniversary. If yes, that would leave 2019 with only one new Ideas set, the Pop-up Book. Real shame about the Stitch though, he's just so cute

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    It says coming soon in all of Europe, but it's sold out in USA/Canada and not listed at all in Australia/New Zealand. We'll find out in a week, I wouldn't mind getting that set, although it really is weird there's nothing new coming (except BH). BTW, Korea has double VIP points right now. Go figure...

    40262 has a "coming soon" status on S@H, my assumption is that it will be this year's Christmas set, along with Mr and Mrs Claus Brickheadz

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    It's a possibility, depending on what kind of deal WB and Lego has. Supposedly 75951 Grindelwald's Escape was made in the dark - set designers weren't given much material from the film producers who wanted to keep the whole story secret. It's very likely the studio required the new FB sets to be released after the film premiered, but if it's two months after (for the winter wave) or half a year after (summer wave) we are yet to find out

    Jurassic World 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Oh my god, that's wonderful! If the D2C is really coming, it has to be the Visitor Centre, there's no other option. Yeah, the T-rex paddock (as suggested by Whovastron) would be more playable, but with just two cars, part of the fence and the gate, it would have maybe 1500 pieces, even if all the builds were minifig scale, which is not exclusive enough. But the VC would be the best set to include John Hammond, unless Lego has a policy to not depict deceased people as minifigs. Whatever will the D2C and the other sets be though, I'm very excited, definitely the best news today!

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Taj Mahal is a mausoleum - not a place of worship, but a tomb. Pretty much like a Hindi pyramid, only way more ornate. That being said, there IS one religious place Lego has created - St. Mark's Basilica in the Venice skyline set (21026). But it's only used for its landmark status and architectural beauty, not because it's a church.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I understand that rule and agree with it. As Lego puts play value above anything else, it would be weird to see a church with play features, and religious activities (like praying or preaching) are not easy to incorporate into a toy that's meant to be played with by children. There's definitely more to it (not wanting to upset non-christian families etc) and it's understandable why Lego is sticking with the Santa Claus side of Chritmas.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I like it, planning to finally start my Winter Village with this one.
  14. Out of hundreds of sets available on LEGO's Shop @ Home, there are few that have no theme "assigned" to them, like 40305 Lego Brand Store or 40188 Pencil Pot. To find them I need to either type in set number or search through all of the sets. Also right now I can buy 40235 Year of the Dog and 40251 Piggy Bank, which were GWPs in the past. Few questions that I have: how many sets like these are actually available on Lego's site? How am I supposed to know if they're not under any theme or interest? Is there any easier way I could find them? How often does it happen that a former freebie is available to purchase?

    Wizarding World of Harry Potter Wishlist

    Ministry of Magic that is similar to the MBS Cloud City. With the place being underground I think It's a perfect format to give it justice. I can already see it having two levels connected by an elevator. First level would have: the atrium, with replaceable statues - one from Order of the Phoenix, the other from Deathly Hallows - and a big cloth piece with Cornelius Fudge portrait Umbridge's office the room where they were making the pamphlets Second level: courtroom Hall of Prophecy Death chamber (with the arch) And let's not forget red phone booth on top of it, as the entrance to the elevator of course
