  1. My take is that the Palace Cinema, Tower Bridge and Detective's office are the three at risk of retiring in the next 18 months in that order. You're good on Assembly Square, Detective's Office might be pushing it and the ones not yet released are good to go.
  2. Creator and Creator expert wishlist

    I'd like to see a couple different things along the same vein as we have been getting. Obviously more modular buildings for starters, but I wouldn't mind seeing some international cars in terms of the annual car releases. I mean, we have had 2 VW Beetles, a VW Bus, a Ferrari, a Mini, and by extension, a Caterham yet there are plenty of well-loved cars that are not from Europe that could be a hit. Examples could be Chevrolet Camaro/Ford Mustang/Dodge Challenger, Corvette, Viper, GT40, Shelby Cobra representing North America, Toyota Supra, Nissan Skyline, Acura NSX representing Asia, and so on. In terms of architecture, perhaps I'm biased from living in British Columbia, but I wouldn't mind seeing some North American landmarks too. Here's 3 from Vancouver: Science World (Telus World of Science aka the Geodesic dome from Expo 84) Canada Place BC Place Stadium I also wouldn't mind seeing them take on a Disney theme whereby they make representations of Disney Park rides, to go along with the Disney Castle. Perhaps not a faithful recreation of It's a Small World by any stretch, but more in the same vein as the amusement park Creator sets.
  3. 2017 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Have we heard any rumors about another Amusement park set? If I recall, there was a brief discussion about a Merry-go-round that may have been delayed to allow for the winter village train or a similar set, but nothing since.
  4. 2016 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Aug 1st for the rest of the sets. They're up on the CA shop at home site as we speak.
  5. 2016 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    It's a licensed set; they had to pay the Octan licensing fee to Lord Business!
  6. Ideas for new City sets

    Not to suggest even MORE police, but with next year being Canada's 150th anniversary, how about a Klondike gold rush theme with a sub theme including Lego's take on Mounties?
  7. Bricklinking Modular Buildings

    I'll agree with you there. When I BL'd my Cafe Corner, I tried printing the PDF and that was just a waste of ink! I had to up the brightness on my monitor because the brown bricks blended in with the black and the bley too much, and one couldn't differentiate between the bricks as it looked like a gob of black on paper... And I have good eyesight!
  8. What licensed car should be next?

    Yep, but that's under the Ideas line. It would be poor form for them to short us both a Winter Village set AND a Creator Expert car in one year, but stranger things have happened. How about a black 1969 Chevy Impala ala Supernatural? Didn't a Supernatural set on Ideas get close to hitting the 10,000 supporters mark only to be turned down or fall just short?
  9. 2016 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    We've had forest police and swamp police, so maybe snow police, deep sea police, volcano police or construction police?
  10. 60052 Cargo Train vs. 60098 Heavy-Haul Train?

    What 60098 has going for it right now, is that it's on sale for $191.98 CAD from $239.99 CAD on the Canadian Shop @ Home if that helps sway you in any way. Free shipping since it's over $75 CAD
  11. Which modular set is the most rare?

    The rarest ones are the ones no longer available. The ones fetching the highest value are, in no particular order, Cafe Corner, Market Street, Green Grocer. After that would be Fire Brigade, Grand Emporium, Town Hall.
  12. What licensed car should be next?

    I think it's due... VW Beetle, VW Camper van, Mini Cooper, Ferrari F40. Some American muscle would be well represented regardless of the make. Although, a Mopar vehicle such as the General Lee would probably be out due to licensing (And a questionable flag on the roof), a Mustang would be more likely due to the popularity. I'll still hold out for a Camaro though and failing to have a 1969, I would love to see a fifth generation version, in order to have a lego version of my own.
  13. What licensed car should be next?

    I wouldn't mind seeing the 1969 Indianapolis 500 pacecar - An Arctic White Camaro SS/RS, hugger orange (reddish) racing stripes and convertible
  14. 2016 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    My poor wallet... I'm already playing catch-up with the deep sea and construction themes... Now that airport, volcano and amusement park themes are coming, I might as well tell my better half to leave as she'll only get mad at me for buying more Lego.
  15. Bricklinking Modular Buildings

    I'm finally getting around to BL'ing Market Street. The parts that have given me the headaches obviously are the doors, arches and hoses. A solution for the hoses though...? I realized that years ago, I picked up an Exploriens set, 6854 Alien Fossilizer. In that set, there was a white hose and surprise, surprise, it appears that it is the same one as in Market Street! So instead of paying as much as $40 CAD EACH for the piece, I looked up 3 complete 6854 sets (and checked the description to make sure the hose wasn't swapped) and at an average of $14 CAD, I have the parts and a few extras. Now there's just a few more pieces to get, namely the blue torso which seems to be about $18 CAD at least...
