    Seeing reviews and pics of those two construction sets there's so much I like about them... the vehicles themselves really feel like a leap forward for City construction equipment, the reddish orange safety uniforms on the construction workers look great, and even little things like the use of those light bley quarter domes as debris for the excavator to scoop feels generous (since it's a fairly recent, uncommon part to just get as loose debris).

    Took a break from Lego for the month of May and just getting back into it. Those construction vehicles are awesome, but are too big for my town so I don't think I'll be buying any. I agree though, those new uniforms look nice. I may see if I could just get some of those on the Lego website through Bricks and Pieces.

    The Lego Truck review is on Youtube, the Lego Sets and the panels on the truck are all printed, I think the only stickers are the Hot Dog Stand, Sign and Medkit at the back of the truck

    by the way, are you Brick Boss?

    Yup! That's me! The Island Chronicles is a fanfiction series I made up based off of my favorite Lego game, Lego Island.


  4. Guys guess what? Some of the summer 2024 sets are coming to the US in June, including the bus and Johnny Thunder's ATV - both of which are on my list. I'm so excited. 


  5. That tram is a must have on my list. It is literally in shut up and take my money territory.

    The tram looks a decent set, although I would have preferred a different colour but this could easily be amended.

     

    Yeah! I think blue would've looked better.

    I'm loving this new tram and tram stop set. It'll be a nice addition to my collection. :)

    Same here! Though to be honest, I get more vibes from the Toronto Rockets in Canada for this set rather than a tram. 


  8. What I'm most excited about is the fact that the tram actually comes with tracks. $80.00 USD isn't bad for what you seem to get in the set. You get a three piece unit with tracks and two platforms. With that being said, I don't mind paying that much. Once again, US buyers have to wait until August to get their hands on this awesome set. Considering that it has no electronics (no complaints from me), I would consider this as a train booster set/transit system expansion pack to go along with the passenger train and the train station from 2022, which I think were amazing sets to start off a public transit subtheme with.

    If LEGO is phasing out the thicker road plates, then that would tell me they weren't selling as well as LEGO thought they would. So does that mean they will bring back the thin road plates? It will be interesting to see if no more thick road plate pieces are included in sets, if it reduces the price of sets at all.

    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.

    Did anyone else notice that this year's City sets so far don't include the roadplates?

    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. 


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