  1. I suppose you are a fan of the Architecture line of sets? ;-) To me this set is of architectural significance mostly in the techniques achieved to create a model that is true to the original in a small scale. Whether it can or should be considered as an architectural icon is debatable though. Looking at it, it has all the traits of what I would consider an Lego architecture set. First is the scale of it in the sense that it isn't a minifig scale building. Second is the box's color (all black, like all other architecture sets). Third is the fact that the architecture sets all depict real places, buildings or cities in the world. To me creator expert is more inclined for sets that have a play factor to them and aren't purely designed to get displayed. It is the case for all expert models up to this point (even all the cars we got, although display models and not minifig scale, have opening doors/hoods and whatnot that you can play with). This stadium though has 0 play features. Anyway, not like we can do anything about how they classified the set, but to me it is strange .
  2. I wonder why this isn't released in the architecture line? Creator expert doesn't make sense to me. Of well, it's a nice building overall, but I won't pick this up as I'm really not into football.

    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    I guess it all depends on how much Lego needs to rework a model and also likely depends on the size. I can also see licensing playing a role. Steamboat was released in 2 months since Lego and Disney are already partnered. In any case, I hope it will be as good as the treehouse.

    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    I swear, like most people, I haven't been more excited about a Lego set than this pirate bay, I still have my Barracuda ship from the 90s. It's missing the sails, but other than that it's complete, still have the instructions too. When do you think more information might come out about the official product?

    Birth of a new Lego city [UPDATE #6]

    Hello everyone, First of all, a happy new year to anyone checking out the topic! I haven't made any major update to my city. I was off work for 2 weeks like a lot of people and spent most of my time with family. My Lego time has been mostly spent on sorting some collections I acquired and building some sets I had purchased (Like the Fairground mixer, got it used a while back, no box, 99.9% complete, with instructions for 50CHF, quite a deal). To expand the city I also needed to do fine measurements to order the 2 other tables that will have the city span accross the room. I have decided the middle section for the beach/ocean will be 3 base plates wide and 4 (or 4.5) deep while the right section will be the same as the other one (6.5 base plates long and 4 base plates wide). I will soon place the order for those. I did complete the second floor of my modular above. I really like how it looks, but it's just way too different from the 1st floor to have them together. I will probably redesign that 1st floor in the future so that project it on hold. I'll probably rearrange the buildings on the 1st table and have another official modular next to the pet shop to replace my modular MOC. Finally, I have started to design the bridge portion for the train to go over the ocean using LDD. Here's a sneak peak of how one end looks like: For the bridges middle section, I will probably take some inspiration from the Spider-man bridge attack set. Cheers
  6. Sorry I know the rules state to send a PM to the indexer if possible, but I'm not sure why this would be useful in this case. Does anyone have a LDD file of set 7781 Batman & Twoface's escape? I got the set used but without instructions, and the PDF instructions available online are unreadable, way too saturated in black so you can't see what exact black piece goes where. I have found a good quality PDF for the batmobile only, but not for the armored truck. Someone did post an LXF file of this set on page 155, but the file is 0kb when downloaded. Thanks

    Birth of a new Lego city [UPDATE #6]

    @LegoDW yep I already thought of that, very simple yet effective. Everything in due time :) I had some time yesterday to work on the station. It did become larger than I initially planned, but I actually find it more interesting now that it spans across 2 16x32 baseplates. There is still a lot of detailing to do and its far from complete, but we now have a nice big plateform with stairs that go across. I don't know yet if I'll keep the station itself with that wavy roof or not as I have to also do one on the other platform which is currently empty. I might also do some changes to the bridge's rails, idk yet. I kinda winged it yesterday. Anyway, some pictures: Bonus, the mess that my current Office/Lego room is

    Birth of a new Lego city [UPDATE #6]

    So, while I wait for a bricklink order to arrive to complete that 2nd floor, I have started work on beach access by train and by car with a parking lot. First I created a little train station at the edge of the table where minifigs can get out and go down to the future beach. I sketched it out on LDD and ended up winging it a bit with the parts I had at home. It's really not complete yet. There will be an overpass to get on both sides of the train (2nd platform I didn't have time to build it physically yesterday): This is honestly my 1st time making a train station, but it has the basics: somewhere to sit on and some trash cans. Here you can see from the side how it looks like. As I'm building this on a 16x32, I had to widen the platform to 6 studs. You can see I started creating a parking lot for car access to the beach. Don't mind the yellow 1x8 tiles, they aren't aligned correctly with the station. The idea will be that you can park 2 cars with their hoods going slightly under the station. I was kinda puzzled what to put on the station's roof. I ended up creating some waves and have like a mini island at the top. I figured since this is the beach's train station, I might as well reflect the theme on it. Hope you enjoyed this mini-update! Cheers

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    As much as I find this new modular nice, the interior is a bit dull. Or is it just me?

    Well I really like it. Curious to see the interior as well.

    Birth of a new Lego city [UPDATE #6]

    Thanks man! I have ordered a bunch of parts through bricklink yesterday to build the 2nd floor of my modular, we'll see how that turns out. Once that's done and I figure out what the roof will look like, I have a section of train track to complete as well as a parking lot (for the future beach) to finish the 1st table of my Lego display. I say "finish" but we all know a lego city is never finished lol...next I'll have to order my next piece of wood for the second table that will host the beach/ocean area. Lots of cool stuff planned for that with a train bridge and the underwater world!

    Birth of a new Lego city [UPDATE #6]

    The 1st floor of the building above is actually 99% done (missing a few glass windows). Forgot to make pictures. I've been working on the second floor of my little modular using LDD this time. It's probably a lot more accomplished than the 1st floor and in a very different style. I'll have to see how the two combine once I actually build it. Worst case I'll make a copy of the 2nd floor for the 1st floor.

    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Thing is the police and fire ones are essentially always the same. There's only so many ways to design a cop car or a police station aimed a kids without going expert like a modular.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    More than that, didn't they say they wanted to stick to some more ancient (50-60s style) buildings? Not sure how an aquarium would fit into this. Again, we've had the FB, I say a police station is a likely candidate. Also they made that contest for a vehicle for the next modular recently no? Either way I don't really care what it'll be, I like modulars so I'm pretty sure I'll be happy with whatever it is.

    LEGO Speed Champions 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Here are some of the next confirmed speed champion sets, dunno if this was posted before. And yes, all 8 studs. I think 8 studs allows Lego to make the cars more like the original counterparts. The Audi looks great! Ferrari F8 Tributo 85 Audi Sport quattro S1 https://www.promobricks.de/lego-speed-champions-2020-setbilder/88580
