    Lego City 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    I would love to see some new "Light and Sound" system stuff added to Lego city. Great for the kiddos and depending on the lights and how they are wired up, they might have a new smaller battery box or small lights like the classic 80s did. -RailCo

    Wow you never fail to impress LT12V! I love the detail of all your locomotives and I seem to learn something new with every train you build and post. I am assuming that the window pieces have stickers on them to add that white trim detail, if I am wrong please explain how you did that! Always love to see your builds! -RailCo

    LEGO Forma - 2019

    As I have said previously, I am really interested in the Lego FORMA theme and where it might go. I know that a lot of people don't like it or think "it's the worst thing since Galidor." However, I actually think it isn't even close to Galidor. FORMA is meant to bring in new customers back into Lego or bring adults a small but relaxing build that will help destress. While many of us collectors will say that "Lego already helps adults like us destress!" A lot of adults haven't rediscovered Lego yet and by doing a small aesthetically pleasing kinetic sculpture will bring others back into buying Lego. I personally love the simplicity of it! I think it is something new to tryout and discover. It seems a lot of others think so as well judging by how many perks people have purchased. Anyway, Lego FORMA only has a couple more days left, if you are interested in backing the project I would do it now. It sure will be a collector's item in the future! Here is a link to the campaign: https://igg.me/at/forma/x/16264162 Happy Backing! -RailCo

    LEGO Forma - 2019

    I noticed that a lot of people in the community either hate it or love it... I love it and here are my reasons for what it's worth: 1. I thought the models were simple but elegant looking, I only bought the base Koi model because I thought the skins were overpriced, however, the model really caught my eye and was something that would be nice to display. I also like how they look to be easily customizable and because I like drawing I could cut out my own skins for them if I choose to. 2. It is something that Lego has never made before and it gives it a sort of unique feel. It is a fresh idea that mixes bricks with skins that can make a model have different curves and lines (not saying that can't be done with bricks). 3. It sounds dumb but it seems as though it is a limited test run to see how the product fairs with buyers. As a collector I enjoy having limited, non-mass production, items. 4. I want to show support for Lego trying new things and taking risks on products that they feel might not work out if they were to just throw them on their website. I think some common misconceptions is that this product is for AFOLs. While it is aimed toward adults, it is not aimed for the avid collector and builder. This product is meant to not only get people back into the hobby of building Lego, it is meant to also allow adults to de-stress from their hectic lives and spend some time off their phones, TVs, and computers. The counter argument to this is that Lego has hundreds of products to allow adults to de-stress and build with already. The reason this seemed to be created however, was to get other adults from a different market to buy these and see that Lego helps them de-stress and be creative (especially with the ink-koi skin). This will allow them to think about making another purchase with Lego whether it be for big technic sets, modular, architecture, or other "adult" lego themes. I have also seen people compare this to Galidor. I think this is an unfair comparison as 1 Galidor figure has about 10-15 giant plastic pieces. One display piece alone has 294 pieces and most of those are Lego elements. Overall, I think that this is a new thing that people will be up an arms about until they see reviews or get it in their hands themselves. Many people were upset about Brickheadz but they took off with flying colors whether they liked them or not. In my opinion if you don't like it, don't buy it. That's the easiest way to tell Lego that you are not interested in that theme and to try something else. Sorry for the long rant -RailCo

    2018 Lego Trains

    They are available in the U.S. for $3 more than the power functions lights at $9.99, $3 extra for a new connector really? https://shop.lego.com/en-US/LEGO-Powered-Up-LED-Light-88005 -RailCo

    2018 Lego Trains

    Just in case people have not seen it the trains are listed on the U.S. S@H page the passenger train is $160 USD and the cargo is $230 USD. They both will be released in August which means I have time to gain the funds! -RailCo

    Any worth keeping polybag bags

    Thank you all for your replies, I guess it is true they don't take up a lot of room so for ones I have recently opened I'll see what they value is for them. If the value with the bag is only a few cents more then I will just begin to throw them out once they are opened. Thanks! -RailCo
  8. Hello quick kind of "poll" to see if it is worth after opening a polybag to keep the bag if I later want to resell. I realize that over the years I have been keeping all these empty bags like one would do for boxes but is there any work to holding onto them? Or am I just wasting my time and space. Thanks! -RailCo

    I love this redesign, simple but much cleaner and detailed than the original 7898 crane! Keep it up! -RailCo

    2018 Lego Trains

    I like the look of the cargo train. The passenger train is alright on looks for me personally but I'll still probably get it when it gets discounted. What angers me though is that Lego makes you but two expensive train sets to have a full train. They know that trains aren't as popular as they used to, so why make it harder for parents buy trains for their children seeing they have to buy two!? My thoughts, -RailCo
  11. Hello all! I was able to get these early and im selling them on eBay if anyone is interested. You can PM me here if you would like to strike a deal before someone else bids on it! LINK: https://www.ebay.com/itm/NIB-LEGO-41611-Brickheadz-BACK-to-the-FUTURE-Marty-Mcfly-Doc-Brown-IN-HAND/282923117728 Thanks, -RailCo
  12. Has anyone noticed that on S@H they are listed in the U.S. as "Sold out" they have only been officially released for 6 days?! I haven't collected the past few series because of the cost, but this one changed my mind. Does it usually come back into stock? -RailCo

    Motorization question

    From my experience this SHOULD work. You will need some supports for the vertical cross axle. My only work of caustion is when doing gears like these is that if they aren't supported enough the like to warp or shift in ways that will disengage the two gears so just be mindeful of that. I would wait for a more "expert" opinion before you make any final design descisions! -RailCo
  14. Definitely will be getting the cargo train. I actually like the design of the engine in the set because it isn't something we have seen TLG make in awhile (of this style of train). The passenger train im debating, I'd have to look at the final images and not the preliminary images that were leaked... PF2 looks to be very promising though!
