    Lego City 2022 Rumours, Leaks, Information And Discussion

    Parents in the US actually sued Lego in the past for the lack of instructions.

    Beware of BlueBrixx Double Crossover

    The BB switches are bolted/melted in a way that you need a drill that is bigger than what you would expect. There is also quite some warping of the switches. The Trixbrix switches are qualitywise as good as injection moulded ones. And a printer delivering their quality costs 4 digits.

    Well, if you really watch the videos chronologically, you will realize that he basically likes that BB release train stuff but that he more and more often asks why they nearly always go for the cheapest solution. Many of their designs do fall apart if you use them for more than display. And there are stupid decisions like putting a seat and wheel in locomotives no matter what or ignoring basic stability issues that even small children would recognize. And this also goes for the buildings which are often hollow shells which sometimes even lack floors.

    I can even give you a whole YouTube channel that documents those problems.

    All considered BB is 4/10. You once in a while get a set that is acceptable, but issues tend to pile up. Switches are often already damaged or warped an since they source their bricks from the cheapest factory quality is all over the place. The V100 is too small in comparison to the waggons, etc.

    BB Trains are more or less crap, either the bricks are of changing quality or the designs are mediocre or the trains are breaking apart when in normal use. Also, most of them have a very limited availability.

    Seems to be a single bad batch, since in Europe there have been no reports about breaking pegs.

    Future Castle Sets?

    You should really brush up your knowledge about painted castles and houses. Only certain colors were expensive others were quite common. Just around Stuttgart we have literrally hundreds of city Walls, castles and timbered buildings that are proof to what I wrote. There is even a city wall tower with an timbered upper part that more resembles a fully-grown house and though the more colorful original paintjob no longer exists it has been verified by tests.

    Future Castle Sets?

    Not true for the continent. There were lots of colors and limited palette was the exception, not the rule.

    Future Castle Sets?

    BTW. Medieval Europe was very colorful and a far cry from the grey and mud you see in many movies. The castle would fit right in with the reconstructed painted castle walls all around here. Houses were also painted in lots of colors and painting mainly white and black/brown is a rather modern thing.

    Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion

    Actually Lego did cancel several sets when recent events were way too connected with elements of sets, which is quite understandable. Too many still don´t get, that the majority of Lego customers are children and that parents do react not good towards playsets that they consider to close to reality. (Since someone asked and I always can deliver facts (but I will post no more about it): https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/feb/26/capitol-attack-capitol-biden-police )

    Well, with the storming of the Capitol and plans to blow it up I can understand why Lego deems that set not fitting.
