    That looks amazing! Not sure it would go well with another modular on the right hand side, but looks great nonetheless!

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Interesting! Can't wait to find out what the next set will be. I've been thinking, the first set they released was the mixer, which worked really well as a standalone set, with all the extra fairground builds. Next was the ferris wheel and carousel, both of which Lego had done before. I think these sets were intended to test the market and see if there was demand for fairground sets. Once they knew that there was, they released the rollercoaster, a set that according to designers was years in the making. I think now we can expect a whole host of rides, with as much variety as you find at a fairground!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I really liked how they did the Flower Cart polybag with Detective's Office, and am surprised they haven't done anything similar since. Maybe next year they can do an addition car to go with the garage? Lego does the Xtra polybag series, which is similar to what you describe, there's a botanical one, bikes & skateboards, food, lamp posts and a traffic light one. They're really great, I got a few with spare VIP points back when it was free shipping a few weeks ago.

    Sounds exciting! Looking forward to what the next challenge may hold...

    I'm surprised at all the people saying it doesn't have a wow factor. This is the first corner building to have 3 street facing sides. That's pretty wow isn't it? Also a lot of people saying the interiors are bare... the apartment has more apartmental features than any yet, even more than the townhouse in PS! And the vet has plenty of things inside, the only interior that I'd agree looks bare is the ground floor, with its lack of usual tiling, but it should be a fairly open space so there's enough room to work! There's more in there than both 2nd and 3rd floors of AS's blue building anyway! Having said all that, I do understand that we obviously differ in opinions, I love this set and the only thing stopping me from definitely ordering it on Jan 1 is the pricetag...

    Can't wait for the designer video! Its worth keeping in mind that while the modular buildings are a series, they also need to function as stand alone sets, and I think DD and CG both function better than usual as stand-alone sets. They're probably going to be gateway sets, like PC was, its got more owners than previous modulars, probably because it was purchased by lots of people who were not previously followers of the modular line. I can see the same thing happening with these two, especially CG as it has the cross over with the City theme, which was shown to be very successful for the FB. This set is clearly designed to appeal to a wide audience, it appeals to car fans, animal fans, city fans and modular fans alike. However, I doubt it will sell as well as the others, because it is expensive, there's no denying that it has a hefty cost. Whether or not it is worth its pricetag, I think its too expensive for casual buyers to be drawn in. But, time will tell.

    You make a good point. Only explanation I can think of is that these parts cost more. But I'm definitely not happy with the increase in price without an increase in value. Only thing stopping me from rejecting the high price is my addiction.

    A dark turn of events! This building is more interesting than I thought, and that meat cleaver.... Diabolical!

    Town hall dwarfs every modular.

    Wow! Looks better than I'd imagined! First thought: definitely a Mike design, he loves the angles and triangles! Glad he was able to pull it off! Overall, I think it looks great! Good to see the interesting colour scheme. Really like that angled wall, it changes the interiors so much compared to other modulars! Also good to FINALLY see a complete apartment/house! All the others so far have been missing bit and pieces, it either has a kitchen and bathroom, but no bed, or it has a bed but no bathroom! Also, nice design on the T.V. Thing that I love the most so far is the Indiana Jones reference! Of course Dr. Jones doesn't want snakes! love it! First downside I see is the lack of a tiled ground floor! Why? makes the inside look so much lower quality compared to every modular since PR. Do like the printing on everything, the vintage octan is great! Vet's office is pretty good, although the fish in the picture is dead... Do like all the scientific looking equipment inside. Also, the modulars seem to be crossing over with Friends more and more, first the Heartlake City travel brochure in the Dentist's waiting area in AS, now the map of HLC in this waiting area! Garage has a great colour scheme, very classic octan, and I like the design of the tow truck! Bit worried about the space out the front though, the other cars are fairly long, not sure if they can manoeuvre in to the pump, and/or fit in there... Minifigs are all great, I like the woman's hair with cap piece, rooftop isn't anything special but nice to see something interesting up there. Facade is nice, I like the small details with the 1x1 curve tiles, the angled wall does leave some gaps but not too fussed about them. So yeah, overall I think its another great modular, its both unique, and will fit in well with the rest of the street. And will look good from both sides. However, is it worth the extra $50? (AUD). I realise that a lot of the parts are rare, or a rare colour (the article seems to push that fact a lot), but when there's things like the bare floor on the ground interior, I don't know. Granted, it is larger than most recent modulars in size, but not in piece count. To me, it isn't worth $50 more than DD or PR, but I will fork it out nonetheless for what is definitely a great addition to my street. Edit: Its isn't bigger in floor space, but part count it is. height its on the tall side. After watching video of it, it looks even better.

    Wait, its early? My clock is on time, or so I thought. Upon inspection, that rabbit mould is too new for it to be a fake. Think we have our Garage!

    You follow the fairground sets? There's a lot of possibilities for the next one! Think the main rumour doing the rounds now is a drop tower. That's the next announcement on my radar! Doubt it! First time we haven't had images leaked since this thread started I think. Actually, AS had no images I think.

    Only half an hour to go, and there's not much left to be said, people are holding their breath. But there'll still be enough discussion to push onto another page. That's my thinking anyway. Welcome to the fun!
