  1. Something is getting replaced. Lego only has so much shelf space and only produces so many sets per year. If Trolls sets exist, they're taking up part of that. Consumers have the right to be worried about what a company is doing. Here's something else that's really simple: if you don't like the negative comments, don't read them
  2. It's like you didn't even read what I said and are just regurgitating the same argument I was complaining about. I'm quite aware Lego designers do not have AFOLs in mind, it has no bearing on my opinion of the set.
  3. The amount of people here and on other sites that respond to any criticism that people have by saying "yOu HaVe tO kEeP iN mInD tHeSe aRe DeSiGnEd FoR kIdS". is quite annoying. Everyone knows that these sets are designed for kids, you're not revealing some big secret by pointing this out. Just because kids are the main target audience doesn't mean we're not allowed to have opinions on the sets.
  4. Gotta say, I'm really disappointed in 60239 Police Car. I was hoping to at least use the stickers to make my own 4 wide variant, but that hood sticker is just so large... I don't necessarily hate 6 wide builds, because Speed Champions has some amazing designs, but City 6 wide cars just don't have the budget to be good or unique. At least some of the Fire Trucks this year are really well done.
  5. DO is now showing temporary out of stock and BB is backordered, but you can still get it.
  6. This one interests me, but that vehicle so massive! It's like the MRAP from 60140: Bulldozer Break-In on steroids. That plus the VTOL aircraft it comes with will make that a scary price point. Burger bar rescue looks interesting, as does the combine harvester carrier. They redid 4209: Fire Plane as well, but that's a pass for me, but the construction site rescue with the longer fire truck might be alright.

    10268 Vestas Wind Turbine

    I'm super excited for this one and will be picking it up despite the less than ideal price point. I've wanted this one ever since it was first revealed back in the day, and while 7747 Wind Turbine Transport from City was a pretty good substitute, it wasn't quite the same, but it was like $400 USD cheaper.

    LEGO Ninjago 2019

    Evergreen doesn't mean that it's exempt from ever being cancelled. Bionicle was considered an evergreen theme at one point, and we know how that turned out.
  9. Isn't it too early for another police theme already? The last few police stations were released 2011, 2014, 2017 with secondary police themes (Forest, Swamp, Mountain) being released a year later in 2012, 2015, and 2018. If they are continuing to follow this pattern, we shouldn't be due for another police theme until 2020. However, the last Fire sets were released 2010, 2013, and 2016, so we definitely should get a fire theme in 2019.
  10. Prices are absolutely out of control. I was interested in it, but not $380 USD worth of interested.

    Future Constraction Lines

    Outside of a few polybags and a couple D2C/retailer exclusive sets, we already know everything that is going to be released this summer. Winter/Spring 2019 would be the earliest we could see a new CCBS theme.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I agree with this as well. The Grocer part of the Green Grocer is the important part and it was fully furnished. The amount of play features packed into something like the Detective's Office was just too much for me. Combined with it's small size, it really rates as one of the lowest modulars for me, despite some of the nice things inside. I really dislike the addition of cars into the series as well. The one in Palace Cinema was straight up awful and while the Diner's car is better, I'd rather those pieces be used to improve the building more. They release enough cars in City anyways.
  14. I'm not sure where you're getting this sentiment from in this thread, because the majority of answers so far have been either a resounding "No" or "Maybe the freight train". If I only bought Lego sets that I fully loved 100%, then i would have never gotten into Lego in the first place. I buy the train sets that interest me, but people who think that not buying the sets will suddenly get Lego to produce more Creator Tier trains are misguided. In this day and age, if a line does poorly, it will be cancelled. Nexo Knights and Bionicle fans know this all too well.
  15. I'll definitely buy the cargo train and most likely the passenger train, but I can't deny that I'll wait for a sale before picking them up. I understand that most here might not want to because the trains aren't Emerald Night/Maersk tier, but I think the only signal that low sales send is that people don't care about trains anymore, not that their trains aren't good enough.
