    2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I'm pleasantly surprised by the amount of detail in the Hospital. It looks like they took a few key points from the Friends and Modulars and applied them to CITY. That's a move in the right direction. I observe minimal juniorization too.

    Programming your LEGO Trains!

    Yes, but if anyone bought a new iPhone within, say, the last three years they should be in good shape. As for Androids I believe the same goes for them. Considering how we're in iOS11 today and it's been one every year. I am interested in following this development. It should procure a lot of creativity from AFOL at future events.

    GFLUG at Plant City Train Show 2018

    Friends, Here's a video of the GFLUG's display at a train show in west Central Florida. While it was not the display our PR department would show off since it is a smaller show, it was still a fun operating day of LEGO trains and whatnot. Enjoy!

    Modular Convenience Store [My First MOC]

    That's an awesome build, and a wonderful combination of those sets! Well done!

    2018 Lego Trains

    Probably the same mentality as with Athearn model trains and their inaccuracies -- "who cares, people will still buy it!" I will say one thing, the nose on the pax train is UGLY with a capital UGLY. Being more of a custom MOC guy, as usual I will probably overlook these sets but keep an eye on the technology they use as it might be better than the existing system, which I feel has kind of failed me.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    That is a great approach. I couldn't agree more. For me I stopped buying modulars after GG and despite having the opportunity to build the subsequent three, didn't go further because for my tastes all of the buildings, with the exception of the DD came across as out of my era. Boils down to personal taste really. I've been vouching for modern South Florida myself, and designed a fair amount of modern buildings in the system to create a "small town South Florida" (ie. Hollywood, Delray, etc). With this set came the realization I could pull the same stops for SoBe and that's why I've been doing some work transforming one to fit a SoBe building (my Pasion del Cielo modular). That being said it's up to the builder to guide his/her city as he/she sees fit. I like originality, which is why I razed my CC, MS and GG. Do I regret knocking down and even selling bits from CC? Maybe... but I am happier with the setup now and going forward.

    2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    $300!!! Wow that's steep. I've taken up HO Scale models and I must say I'd rather buy a functioning sound locomotive for that price and still have money left over to give it a few train cars. We'll really wait and see on that one.

    Granted I may not be an expert at reviews, but I dropped my $0.02, and the back story for my image post earlier :))

    Shameless plug of my 41093 MOD (& MADO MOC for those that have been to Turkey).... But anyway

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    I am right now building it! So far the only thing I did was build it on a slightly elevated standard to fit with my GFLUG buildings. We have a city block standard with overhanging stud. I made a tiny boo boo and a piece of white plate is exposed at the back door, but I'm doing minor Florida style sand spur grass overgrowth at the back. I might experiment with making levels 2 and 3 entirely white.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    Right on. I have a good feeling I will walk out happy anyway, seeing how demand is overall a little bit lower for this one plus TLG probably has learned from the past in stocking enough for Day 1 demand and so forth. Mind you this isn't a Millennium Falcon. I won't take much of a chance though, will sneak out when I wake up!

    Happy New Year to everyone first of all! I want to hazard getting this in person at the LEGO store tomorrow, do you all think it'll fly off the shelves? I just don't feel like ordering it online haha.

    TTX Articulated Intermodal Spine Car

    This is a great looking model. I tried to do a few in brown but they keep falling apart. Perhaps I can reverse engineer and adapt these.
