    LOL! Two polar opposites there.

    If they get rid of the buildable plates, they'd HAVE to bring the road baseplates back. I'm angry that they didn't at least keep those, but sell them under the Classic theme along with other baseplates. Just for people who prefer the baseplates, yours truly included. I plan to buy some of those.

    I've noticed that. That's probably because they are attempting to phase them out. Personally, I would miss them. But if its for the good of the company to phase them out, I won't be upset at their decision.

    That bus and the construction vehicle looks top notch. I'm definitely getting both the bus and the construction loader.

    I wonder how they'll look! We have one and a half more months until we see them. So get ready.

    Yeah I wish Subaru had some spotlight in Speed Champions.

    Now if Lego had a wave where they did imports only, I'd be broke.

    @TeriXeri Don't forget. This year's fire station also has two berths; one for the cherry picker that comes with the set and the other one which is just the right size for the 4x4 fire truck of this year. There is also the water-based prison island sets which connect the dots.

    Combine´╗┐ is just a way the newer City design works, as an incentive to sell more sets, and give a reason to collect more. Ikr! I think they should do that more often.

    Yeah! I saw pictures of that set and to be honest, I'm actually impressed. I think I may actually buy that one and use it as a regular science lab in my town instead of it being space oriented.

    Why isn't that a thing in Europe tho? That would make sense in any country that celebrates the holidays.

    We should get them in early to mid-May depending on when they will be released. I already know they won't be coming to the states until August so I'm bracing myself for that. That's at least the case for the sets that are good. The lame ones will likely be in June. But Europe and other countries get all City sets in June.

    Yes it's a very large building, but there weren't any vehicles, except for the wheelchair that the old lady was in. I can say the same about downtown and the ice cream shop. The lack of vehicles (which I think is a good thing for sets like this) automatically puts those sets at least 50 USD below their asking price. If it were up to me, the downtown set wouldn't exceed $79.99 USD and the apartment would only cost what? $49.99. Ice cream shop was fairly priced so I won't mess with that one. . Dude, I'd love to see someone do that. I have yet to find a video of that actually happening. I'm intrigued to see how it plays out.

    Speaking of the apartmtent building set, not too long after acquiring the prison island set, I got the apartment building set at a department store on clearance. Like I ended up only paying $50 for that set, which imo, should've been the original asking price.

    Dude! I love that set. My town is based off of the Lego Island saga so this set actually fits perfectly for a modern day version of the prison from the first game. It has its flaws, but like you said, those are really just minor flaws like the wash room. The building and interior of the building is nice though.

    Oh guys! Guess what? I got the prison island set for my birthday last week. Just finished building it today.

    Ideas for new City sets

    I'm surprised Lego hasn't done one of those yet. I'd buy a few of those if they did.

    Yeah! At least until they make one that the minifigs can hold in their hands.

    You know what i want to see as far as molds are concerned: a paper bag mold to represent a child's lunch like this. Meanwhile, I have to use the money sacks from the 2022 bank set because there is no paper bag mold.
