    Probably because they weren't popular like that back then.

    How about Railway Heroes? Railway Heroes is like Speed Champions and focuses on real trains and locomotives such as the Flying Scottsman, the Metrorail 7000 Series or the Orient Express. Not fantasy trains like the Hogwarts Express or generic ones like the ones in City.

    [MOC] 76901 Honda PRELUDE

    Wow! Now that's a ride. The Prelude was underrated in the import car scene. Like, everyone has heard of Skylines, Silvias, Supras and Celicas. But no one talks about the Prelude.

    Hmmm......I don't remember that one. But I think I have it because I have the farmers market van. Another one I hope they do, ironically enough, is fries. Recently, Lego would just color the crystal piece and use that as fries. But I hope a legit fry piece is in the works. Perhaps even a cup piece to represent fast food drinks.

    The piece that represents more than one scoop of ice cream also doubles as berries when in colors such as blue or red. They've also got the piece in purple to represent grapes. There were also pieces to represent doughnuts and cookies with the bakery from set 60306. Along with a sunnyside-up piece that came with the camper.

    We also have a pumpkin mold, which was pretty prominent in the farm subtheme from 2022. It also technically had a boiled egg mold. Though....I guess those weren't really foods. They were actually unhatched baby animals. I'm still waiting for an orange, watermelon or pear mold. But I'm sure those will come soon.

    @Lion King So I know you love animal molds. My love for food pieces is about the same height as your love for animal molds. One mold I hope they make is a hamburger piece for the new burger truck. In the past, they had to put bricks together to make a burger. I think a burger piece could work. I may not happen, but I could dream.

    Sounds like a new series that's coming. Though the main characters seem to be civilian teens instsad of cops, firefighters and robbers.

    Thomas the Tank Engine - MOCs of locomotives and rolling stock

    I see you're still working on the design. It looks good so far. My only critique is to bring the boiler up some. Everything else is just fine!

    Favourite sets that you own

    So ironically enough, my favorite sets are 2020 and newer. So here are my top 5. 1. 60258 Tuning Workshop - sort of a car lover so I was excited when I got this set. 2. 60335 Train Station - converted it into a bus terminal 3. 60347 Grocery Store - was excited when that one came. 4. 60329 School Day - that one was a fixer upper. 5. 60328 Beach Lifeguard Station

    Your First LEGO Set

    My first set was the 6434 Roadside Repair set that my grandpa got for me at age 8. May he rest in peace. Ever since I was a child, my favorite types of town-related sets were ones centered around the auto industry, so this set was a pretty big deal to me when I first got it.

    I remember this survey that Lego did for its VIP members on if I could make a City set, what would it be. I submitted an idea for a bendy bus.

    Lego City 2024

    My disappointment is bendy bus. Ok! So it obviously can't be EXACTLY like this, but it could've been somewhat similar. You can use the idea that used for the bendy piece a City set.

    Ideas for new City sets

    So far, Lego has given us every type of bus known to mankind such as a motor coach (8404), a hybrid bus (60154), a double decker bus (60200), a school bus (60329), an automated shuttle (60367) and three regular transit buses (7641, 60026 and 60335),. But we have yet to recieve a bendy bus.

    Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

    On another note, the 2024 City wave sounds dull already with the exception of some sets such as the burger truck, racing cars and ambulance. Yes I changed my mind on the ambulance.

    Which are your TOP 10 Lego sets from 2022?

    1. 60335 Train Station - converted that one into a bus terminal 2. 60329 School Day - was a fixer upper 3. 60347 Grocery Store - just needed to add a roof and it was all set. 4. 60330 Hospital - for obvious reasons. 5. 60328 Beach Lifeguard Station - pretty good set for a small one. 6. 40578 Sandwich Shop - loved this set. 7. 60320 Fire Station - I don't see how people hated this one. I think it's actually the best fire station we've gotten. 8. 60317 Police Chase at the Bank - or something like that. I really just got it for the bank building. But the vehicles were useful too. 9. 60316 Police Station - definitely an improvement over the last classic police station in 2020. 10. 60351 Rocket Launch Center - not bad. Wish it were road plate compatible.

    Do you only buy lego?

    For me personally, I only buy Lego! But if someone wishes to use a different type of brick, then it is not my place to judge.

    My review on the 60363 Ice Cream Shop

    Yeah! That's a turn-off that can be fixed.

    I was impressed by the effort. The buildings were fixer uppers for me. That's what made it fun.
