  1. Just finished 42114. It's a tricky build but I like it. Not very fast obviously, but it all works great... And it goes very well with the PF controlled Volvo Loader from a few years back... I recommend this one !...
  2. Not really interested in the CAT D11T, but I'll wait for the reviews. If they are not "over-the-moon", then the price will make that an easy decision to pass on. The Mercedes truck I might like;... but I don't need another truck with a crane on the bed. It would be nice if it was an "off-road" truck;... maybe with different motors powering different axles/wheels ?... If that was the case I might sign on, even for that price...
  3. You got very lucky ! They are now on backorder almost everywhere, including Belgium;... and you got the mother load of free gifts with it !!! I'm happy for you

    Broken pieces in new sets

    I find that calling their service is working good. It might take a little longer for them to pick up, after you’re on hold, but they are very understanding and will send you the replacement pieces for the ones that are broken... Of course I’m in the USA, but I don’t think that should make a big difference ?...
  5. Well, that pretty much sucks !... The news is spreading online that it is actually true that the North America’s is not getting this promotion now. Now I’m also wondering if “shipping issues” is the real reason for this; not to speculate but I wouldn’t count out LEGO to be lying about the real reason... If you know when the sets for sale, what date you are starting with VIP promotions, and that America is probably LEGO’s, and definitely Porsche’s biggest market;... you would get organized on time, right ? I guess now I’ll wait for double points or something ?... Definitely not in a hurry now to give LEGO another $150.00 for “nothing” in return. They are dropping the ball left and right lately with new product releases; get your act together !...
  6. I’m very much interested in that as well ! I took the day off (February 16th) to get it in store, but it reads on the lego site that the offer is only valid by phone orders maybe ?...

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    I agree. Mine was a set that came from Europe (you can tell if it has white stickers all over the outside of the box), and the color differences between the parts seems almost none in the greater parts like panels, but there is a little between the small parts and the flex axles. But overall, I am still really impressed and it’s my favorite model of the three as well. (Porsche second and Bugatti third). But now here is the fun question;... what will the next one be, and will it come out in 2022 to match the two year interval they have with these cars. You know they are working on it already because they need all the time they have in those two years...
  8. That's an easy choice !... I don not like Star Wars at all, and Diagon Alley I just finished yesterday evening (watching the latest COVID news on TV);... I just really hope it won't be $700.00 like mentioned before, I have to set a limit somewhere ?...

    I’m a fellow Dutchie but I live in California at the moment... so no easy Hedwig for me unless I ask the family to get it ?...

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Agreed. It’s fun to see if you’re right about a figure. I do this game with my daughter and so far the old man is winning. ? But it’s frustrating now because of the Covid; a lot of the LEGO stores here in Southern California won’t let you feel around anymore. They just grab one and give it to you. I got one the other day at the LEGO store here and it turned out to be Hermoine with the beer ? cup. Once I felt the beer cup I looked for the hairpiece to see if it was her or Ron; still fun to do and I beat my daughter again.

    Got started building my DA, and just finished bag 8; which is the pink upper floor of QQS. So far so good, I’m used to the pink already and really like the building so far. I absolutely love the front window façade of QQS; they did an awesome job to get that angled and all !!! Tomorrow is Friday so I should be able to do some more building after work. Yay !.... ?

    Are you already there with building after you just received the set ?... ? I just got things organized and still have to start the first bag. But I did look through all four the instruction books for a long time... ?

    ?... You guys are cracking me up !... Yay !!! I unpacked mine and put all bags out In order over the dining room table. My wife yelled at me when dinner was on, so I put them all back in the box, but this time in opposite order; having the base plates in the front, the extra set of plates in the front, and then starting with the bags numbered “1”... Can’t wait to get home, ?, and then start !!! ?
