    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I both love it and hate it. Need some time for this to absorb.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    So, for the eagle-eyes out there, does this Diagon Alley micro appear to be the same scale as Hogwarts micro?

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    A reveal or significant leak should be out very very soon as we are almost into September. Lego really needs to knock it out of the park this year for the WV theme. The last three years has seen the re-release of the Toy Shop, the introduction of an overly junior-ized train, and a complimentry train station who's best feature was the taxi/bus. IMO, a re-release of the Cottage is actually fine in my books, as it's the best set in the series and could bring in some more buyers to the theme (more sales = more attention from Lego). However, as a collector re-releases hurt my collection. Before the Taj re-release, anyone who saw my collection was blown away by the fact I had one. Nowadays not so much...takes away from some of the fun. Notably for me, there's a seller in my local area that has a sealed Cottage for sale at a fair price (about double original price). I'm ready to buy...or not buy...as soon as solid information about the WV 2019 set is available.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    It's only a matter of time before an updated Diagon Alley comes out. I'm actually hoping for a summer 2019 release; give the fans the opportunity to get the current sets available. IMO, too much all at once might actually be a bad thing.

    I'm sure there's a talented MOC'er out there will make an "expansion" set of instructions using parts from existing Lego sets such as Tower Bridge, Big Ben, or even another HC. It's only a matter of time!

    My store's pre-order list of 60 will be filled tomorrow and they say they have extras on hand. This is wayyyy more than the half-dozen UCS MFs they had. Looks like Lego is better prepared this time.

    Starting to look like Hogwarts Castle is another Lego Shop at Home release fail? Or are they waiting for a midnight EST worldwide go-live?

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    IMO it's a great set; first time I built it was with a friend...I did one half and he did the other. Good times!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Based on Brickset data, the set owned by most users is Pet Shop (likely due to its long shelf-life), followed by Palace Cinema, then Parisian Restaurant. https://brickset.com/sets/theme-Advanced-Models/subtheme-Modular-Buildings

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I'm looking forward to this year's release and it has got me looking around for the WV sets I missed out on...as I joined this theme late. I knew I should have bought them when they were available! Given that the prices for 10216 Winter Village Bakery; 10222: Winter Village Post Office; and 10229: Winter Village Cottage are around triple original retail price, just curious if anyone attempted Bricklink'ing any of these sets? Are there many rare pieces that drive up the price? I need to dig deeper into this...

    I'm only missing the first two modular buildings and I really don't want them to do re-releases. Onward and upwards!

    [REVIEW] 75152 Imperial Assault Hovertank

    Great review. I just picked up one of these for 50% off at a local book store. Just out of curiosity, do we consider this set to be "minifig scale"? Besides the fact it can only carry 2 vice 3 Kyber crystal containers, the size appears to be to scale when looking at the official film cutaways. Has anyone done the measurements to confirm this?

    Minifig scale Star Wars sets

    I've been significantly reducing my SW collection over the past few months and have only been keeping the sets I consider to be "minifig scale"...or close to it. Of some of the current sets on sale right now, would you consider any of these to be minifig scale? Any other honorable mentions I'm missing (besides UCS S1 and MF)?
