    [MOD] LEGO Set 3177 with matching trailer

    That's actually pretty good! Love how you used the back of the Smart as influence for the trailer.

    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Overall, despite the various subthemes for City, I think I can officially split Lego City in two halves; action outside of the city and action within. However, in recent years, some sets under subthemes that supposedly take place within the city are portrayed as being out of the city such as the 2019 fire plane and the 2014 helicopter chase set. It seems like City is rather hesitant to give shine time to action within the city. Its obvious that action outside of the city sells better as I'm assuming that young boys don't just love action. They love WILD action. While I do wish for the days when City only focused on action within the city to return, I doubt that would happen as by now, action outside of the city seems to be too popular and provides more ready made action than action within the city. By why put those sets under City? Now that's a tough question! The thing is......putting those types of sets by themselves would be to their detriment and there is really no other place to put them. Put them under City and people buy them. So that's kinda the short version to a long a pointless explanation that would take me away from the point. City nowadays is more about jobs than city life. By giving more leeway to action outside of the city, the City theme itself is evolving rather than going against its heritage. Though this year, it seems City almost fully promoted action within the city except for the divers sets and the safari off roader.

    I'm getting impatient for that one.

    [MOC] LEGO Amfleet I Coach

    Ah yes! The classic Amfleet. One of Amtrak's longest running local passenger service coaches. Funny, I've ridden on the Amtrak lots of times in my life and only rode on Amfleets. I've never ridden on the Supreliner or the Acela. That's sad.

    Ideas for new City sets

    Unfortunately yes! It's kinda pointless for it to be one though. That's why @Vilhelm22 said that it would be better to sell them under more dedicated subthemes like police or fire. On another note, I'm surprised that City hasn't went the police train route yet. A fire train would be cool. MOCs are nice and all, but some people like myself, would like to see how Lego tries their hands at it.

    Ideas for new City sets

    Here are some ideas for a potential cargo wave revival, Lego! Perhaps instead of people in blue overalls, you can introduce a new green torso with the "CARGO" logo on the front and back. Truck & Forklift - updated version of the truck and forklift from 2013. Moutain Heliplane Delivery - follow up to the cargo heliplane from 2013. Ship Dock - either the harbor from 2007 or the harbor from 2011, except its painted in the green and white colors of Cargo vehicles. Freight Train - includes green locomotive with two green and white box cars

    60259, 60269 and 60271 still have yet to be revealed. I'm assuming those will be this year's town sets. Still a chance for a people pack and town planning set along with a standalone building.

    Tram Depot and BrickPolis

    Great Job! I love the removable roof and how you made it drive through instead of one sided.

    A little too big for my town. But it's good for display purposes. Looks amazing!

    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Not really a fan of World City. Too much focus on emergency sets. Though that would be hypocritical of me to say because then again, you can say the same about City. I recently recieved the 2013 cargo truck and the 2013 Octan truck. Let's not beat around the bush here. The 2013 cargo truck was WAY better than the 2017 one. It was more realistic. I don't speak for anyone else, but I have never seen a truck that transports Lego sets in an opened container. Reference to the 60169 Cargo Terminal. However, some newer City builds aren't actually that bad. I got the bank from 60245 and I plan on buying the new passenger jet set. Though, I am thinking about scratching that and just trying to find the 2016 airport instead.
