    Bro! I didn't say 4 stud wide should be a thing for all vehicles. Just the cars. I'm pretty sure that one was a 6-stud wide. I have the set.

    With that being said, they should bring 4 stud wide back for automobiles especially. Don't get me.wrong, i commend City for trying the 6 stud wide thing as it allows more detail. But we've got Speed Champions now for that. So I think 6-8 stud wide autos should be a Speed Champions thing. City should go back to 4 stud wide autos. Trucks and buses I can understand being 6 stud wide. Just not for civilian vehicles, cop cars and taxis. I only collect the older City cars because of that. I plan to get City set 4207 so I can snag the cars in that set.

    Along with what @TeriXeri said, some of the vehicles may also be too big for the road plates as well such as the mobile unit. I don't really like how they executed that one as it looks like something made by Hotwheels compared to a Lego City set.

    So I saw the back of the burger truck box. Turns out the serving area on the truck can be removed to make a stationary burger joint. That's kinda neat and pretty clever.

    @legoturtle LOL! You're going to the City theme for the stuff that isn't city themed. My bad for laughing.

    The City sets I'm getting for 2024 are: Burger Truck Go Karts Road Roller Sailboat I may get the fire station just to have the fire truck as my town already has a fire station. Yes! I actually like those. If I do get the fire station, I may actually keep those along with the fire truck that comes with it.

    I saw the sets on the US site. I'm not gonna lie, they want too much for that space base set.

    So that was a lot, but that basically explains my perspective on this winter wave. The only brightside to this wave in my opinion would probably be the fire station and the racing car sets. I'm not really a fan of the space wave either. I think my wallet is going to be okay this winter.

    May that set rest in pieces! Lame pun intended.

    Seems like City took influence from Hot Wheels. But yeah, City could definition use some tutelage from Friends.

    Bro! I'm definitely getting the burger truck and go karts! I'm doing that on release day too!

    I'm only getting four sets from the winter wave and that's the go karts, burger truck, road roller and prison island. Maybe the sailboat.

    Being a car lover, I've got to say that along with the burger truck, my favorite sets are the racing sets. Sorry, @Lion King, they aren't 2k Drive. They're just generic racing sets. So you've lost the bet. Where's my money? Just kidding.....

    I saw those and I actually think those are nice. I love the new martian molds too! Glad those minifigures are actual spacemen and not aliens. However, I'm going to pass this entire lineup up as my town is based on reality and logic. But those are good for little children though. I can tell for some of those sets, they got influence from the Lightyear movie!

    I hope so too!

    In YouTube are speculating about the end of yellow heads

    I agree! I actually like that perspective.

    The banner doesn't bother me much either. Instead of making an entire NASA theme, Lego splits it into various Lego themes such as City and Technic. The banner just shows that said sets are licensed by NASA. That's all! Just like if they were do a COPS banner for Police sets or a US Coast Guard, Marines or Navy banner for any Nautical themed sets.

    I doubt this would happen, especially for City. Imagine City being full of flesh Toned people. That would cause outrage. Especially in the police sets. As a black American, I wouldn't like it either.

    Does Eurobricks need a "no opinion police" rule?

    I have had issues like that in the past and I do seem to be having issues with that now, especially with the new City sets. My biggest rant is about the alien figs. But hey! Its Eurobricks, man! Eurobricks is kinda unique in that manner as you can't say too much without getting scorned.

    So that's the mystery GV. I'm disappointed.

    I can't wait to see the pics. Then me and several other people can have the fun of criticizing them.

    Top 10 unlicensed Lego sets you want to be re-designed

    I actually thought the 6479 Emergency Response Centre wasn't bad. I hope they revive that theme. But the likely hood of that happening any time soon is next to none given that they have JUST released some divers sets this past summer.
