    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Nice, I guess that would be a good fit with Parisian Restaurant then.

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    None where I am - in any case I am not really in the market to collect all the minifigs - I already got 2x of what I really wanted from the 6 that I ordered (Ice Cream Saxophonist). Anyways, I think what Vidiyo would have benefitted from is using the smartphone display as a stage background for actual minifigs - instead of AR, but it would be difficult to do given the wide diversity of phones out there in differing sizes, etc. I can't help but see the potential of having a custom LCD display for a stage though.

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    My guess (and this is just a guess) is that the scalpers bought the bodies disproportionately - it meant that whoever wanted to build an elephant through BaP will have to go third party to source the bodies (instant market!) - and buying the bodies alone minimizes the amount of cash one have to spend on inventory.

    I think all the bodies got snapped up by "scalpers". I bought a set of two for the rest of the pieces and sourced the body from someone on BL (with a really large inventory of bodies) at a fairly reasonable price.

    Lego City 2022 Rumours, Leaks, Information And Discussion

    Can confirm this is correct - the food are all printed tiles, but the decoration are stickers. I can't see City ever moving to all printed given the price-point/target audience.

    I don't think we will get it this year, but given the importance of the Asia/Pacific market to Lego, I think it's only a matter of time.

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    They're out of stock - at $3.48, and no free shipping. I am only picking up 6 and I have Prime, so it's even. I spent yesterday tracking down all the Beatbits and Bricklinking them

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    Just scored a whole bunch of Series 1 bandmates for $3.99 Cdn ($4.99 MRSP) at Amazon. No Series 2 ones to be found...but picked up a Carnaval Dancer minifig on BL at an elevated, but still acceptable price.

    It looks pretty good - maybe I can pick it up on BL since Lego doesn't have I wanted in stock right now.

    Thanks @LCP - super excited about farm and grocery market sets! The design might not be too exciting on their own (hope I am wrong) - but the parts will offer so much possibilities. Moar animals! This is shaping up to be a very rough year for the wallet if TLG keep on doing what it is doing.

    REVIEW: 80109 Lunar New Year Ice Festival

    I would love to see them tackle some CNY botanicals - like Enkianthus quinqueflorus Lour. (colloquially known as "hanging chimes flower"). I have the 80101 CNY Eve Dinner - it's a very fun set with some unique food tiles (it was a pain to import to Canada since it was originally Asia-Pacific only) - I definitely wouldn't mind a redo!

    REVIEW: 80109 Lunar New Year Ice Festival

    I can't wait to get my hands onto those (opalescent?) panels for the lake. Not having stickers is one of the reasons why I chose to go with this set instead of the diorama this year. As to the vibe - it's probably distantly related to the Harbin Ice Festival, which isn't really a CNY thing per se.

    REVIEW: 80108 Lunar New Year Traditions

    Actually a CNY candy tray (with Lego candies) would be perfect as an "adult" Lego product.

    REVIEW: 80108 Lunar New Year Traditions

    Thanks for the review! Love the the kumquat tree and will definitely look up the instructions for that. The pearl gold hotdog buns subbing as gold bullions is great too. Are the coins printed? The carousel diorama also reminds me of the CNY candy tray with multiple compartments I typically only pick up only one of the CNY sets and this one is cute - but I have already decided on 80109. Looking forward to your review of that set!

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Honestly TLG should just release it as a paid set - I am sure AFOLs would just snap it up anyways (I know I would), and it eliminates the problem of wastage (assuming the sets are already made anyways). They can release a corrected version next year or skip it entirely.
