  1. I know, but one can dream. Even if the castle had to be cut back - like say, a Gatehouse & Front Walls only - I'd like that. Everyone else would hate it though :P
  2. You are not the only one. Some of the wishlists in this thread are not even close to realistic. 20+ minifigs? come on now I just hope people are treating them as wishlists and not setting them as expectations or there's gonna be a lot of disappointed/angry AFOLs who only have themselves to blame. My wish (in no way an expectation, but it'd be neat) - is that the Castle is scaled to the Blacksmith house. When you place them side by side the Blacksmith doesn't look stupidly large like it does beside anything else.

    Fantastic work. Love the sorcerer's apprentice getting swept away. Fantasia vibes.

    [MOC] Red Falcon's Castle

    Love your work. The swirly gold dish is the obvious highlight, but I'm a big fan of the bare outward facing studs for detail too. Does it have an interior?

    Ideas for new City sets

    Here's the original submission: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a8055a23-30d5-45a4-b046-7f5988722a3f I gotta say it's pretty great, and the one I am looking forward to the most of the current 'under construction' batch.

    Ideas for new City sets

    You'll be glad to hear there is a lighthouse in the works via Ideas. However, based on the original submission, it is unlikely to be minifig-scale. Perhaps it could work in the distance.

    I'm a big fan of the airship, but it seems to have been re-entered with zero modifications. If it didn't pass the first time through, why would it now?

    From the new train. Is this an existing piece, or something new?

    Lego Pick a Brick problems?

    I can still see that message on the Irish site (Lego.ie). It's on the screen where you start selecting bricks: https://i.imgur.com/629YMnZ I wouldn't waste time worrying about all of this. They are clearly having some handover issues between their old system and new. Give it a few months, this is a massive operation and a logistical nightmare. I'd like to hope they are automating the 'picking' parts of the service in this downtime, but outside their communications (which will never be 100% factual), it's all speculation on our parts. In the meantime, there's always Bricklink.

    Bricklink Designer Program 2021 Discussion Thread

    I'm pretty certain one of the limitations to design here is that all part must currently be in production in regular store sets. No new prints or revivals or anything like that. A few of the designers are on here, maybe one can confirm.

    Bricklink Designer Program 2021 Discussion Thread

    Dang, I much preferred the previous mechanism with the studs bouncing about. I guess he couldn't keep them from flying around the room. Suppose I'll just have to figure it out on my own. On the plus side, my wallet is thanking me for not being too sold on any of the others.
  14. I had read something about this too, but now that I search, I cannot find it. Best I've got is this article; https://www.pnltc.org/thats-why-lego-ditched-its-classic-baseplates-in-the-2021-city-sets/ which cites the design team talking about needing to fit sets into smaller boxes being one of the reasons for the overhaul. Which is a far step from changing the plastic, but does have some environmental links.

    Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

    I would assume sales could nearly make the call after the first month. What was the demand at launch? How quickly did the second batch onto shelves sell out? If these sales figures were below expectations/projections at all, then the only way they'd move to full development of a 'phase 2' would be if the following months unexpectedly reversed the initial lack for some reason.

    LEGO Ideas Discussion

    First stop would be just to ring Lego Customer service. I have heard of people purchasing single bags from sets previously (e.g. all the parts for the middle floor in a modular). As this set is still in print, they may do that for you. I'd be curious too, if you try this to hear the result. Any time I heard, it's been 'friend of a friend', so I don't know for sure if they will and would like to know. Unfortunately, I don't believe such a function exists in BrickLink. The way to approach would be to download the instructions, and work through the steps for the first bag - constructing yourself a wishlist from the steps (in combination with the 'part out' page of the set). You could then use this wishlist to shop with from one seller or multiples.

    Lego Ideas 90th Anniversary Fan Vote

    To be sure. I'm well used to keeping the expectation dampened, we'll see it when we see it. So long as we know before the 100th anniversary I'll be a happy camper.

    Lego Ideas 90th Anniversary Fan Vote

    I don't think anyone's mentioned this yet, but the Grand Prize for the latest competition over on Lego Ideas includes the 90th Anniversary set as one part of it. I'm not saying the silhouette here is to scale, but it is important to highlight that this set will be the difference between the runner-up prizes (the other three sets), and the Grand Prize (those three plus the 90th set) For comparison, the sets in that slot for the last few comps (i.e. the difference between Grand & runner-up): Guitar contest: A real life fender Stratocaster guitar & the Ideas Grand Piano set Most recent Lego House comp: Brick Moulding machine set & Winnie the Pooh set. A lot of their comps don't have equivalent sets between the Grand & Runners-up so it's hard to pick out a pattern, but this does look much bigger than just a GWP set. I'd guesstimate in the €100-€200 range. An outside chance of it being a big €350 set, but keep those expectations low. Winner announcement for that comp is May 5th, so hopefully some better news on what this set will include by that stage.

    Looking to build a small model railroad

    I don't really understand what you mean - could you draw a diagram? Better yet, check out that software and just drag/drop a layout together.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The more I think on it, if you had both sets on the same orientation, you could place one at a height - and link them one hill into the next. All the way down one, then the same on the other, into climbing both hills again.
