    42056 - Porsche Speculation

    I hope it is the first option and a true supercar this time with as many authentic functions as they can do. Do you think colour is final yet for the production car or they can still change it if they realize what most people want?
  2. My suggestion is to vote for best Technic set first from the period of 1977-2000 and then redesign the winner by TLG as an exclusive set with special box edition.

    Pictorial Review: 8455 Backhoe/Wheel Loader

    +1 It is still the best mid-sized set, pneumatic paradise. I chose this one as AFOL in 2006 to return to Technic and was completely hooked. Since then I collected all the valuable flagships but 8455 is something special. You can not make it better.

    2016 Lego trains

    @Paperballpark That is really sad. Anyway thank you for your message. Rare happens we receive any information crumbs from designers (even if it is indirectly) regarding production decisions, so these are highly appreciated. I didn't know that Creator Expert trains weren't great sellers and hope this does not mean they have cancelled this line.

    2016 Lego trains

    Hope dies last. Probably there is a secret train project somewhere in the vault. I would prefer Mallard, VT601 TEE, Shinkansen 100 or even the Creator Expert version of 7740.

    2016 Lego trains

    If this is true, it is a shame for LEGO. Can someone confirm there will be no Creator Expert Train in 2016 to celebrate 50 years of LEGO trains?

    Technicopedia

    Blakbird, thank you for your tremendous effort to update Technicopedia. The new pictures are fabulous and really refresh the site. And it was joy to read all that thing about Barcode Multi-set, now I intend to build all the alternative models.
  9. I wish I had had that agreement back then. But after collecting Technic flagships and Model Team sets I stared at videos about 7740 and 4558 on youtube for hours and rationalism was gone...

  11. Arocs is dream set in every way, bravo LEGO! Crawler crane is pretty awesome as well with 4 motorized functions and blue colour. Epic.
  12. Updated collection with 42030 Volvo : http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=429865
  13. I would like to see the pics as well. I think somebody will leak these in days, as usual. It will be long before we see good quality pics from Nuremberg toy fair (Jan 28 - Feb 2, 2015). If all the romours true - especially about longer pneumatic cylinders and suspension - Mercedes will be an epic set.

    What did you get for Christmas?

    I got 42030 and quite like it although a flashing caution light on the top would make it much cooler.
  15. Do we know anything about the price for the crawler crane? I hope it will be bigger and more complex than 8288 and will come in rare colour. Something like this:
  16. Hope for a concrete mixer version. But most likely it will be a dumper or a crane truck.

    What to do when an Era ends?

    I've jumped into Train theme 3 years ago and collected my favourite trains from 12v, 9v and PF era (7740, 4558, 4564, 4551, 2126, Emerald, Maersk, Horizon). My experience is that it makes sense to stock up out of production train tracks and main electric parts if you want your trains running on their original tracks. I use 12v tracks for 12v trains and 9v train tracks for all my other trains on a separate circle. And old train tracks and old train motors (12v, 9v) are getting more and more expensive on the second hand market. On the other hand I don't think TLC will change PF system in the near future so if you like PF stuff in my opinion there is no need to begin stocking parts up now because these will be available for a long time on moderate prices.
  20. Only 42030 and do not plan to buy more as I collect only the (good) flagships.
  21. Thanks for the additional information PhyBuilder. I also getting really excited about 42038 and 42039 which are for older aged kids. 42039 could be something like McLaren GTR from the 90s, what do you think? Maybe in rare colour like orange or yellow-green? Artic tracked vehicle also sounds really promising as a mid ranged set and this is where I can think of pneumatics... I hope first photos will leak in the near future...
  22. @Richie: good question I thought about the Diesel Multiple Unit German TEE from the 60s.
  23. Hello guys, I'm big fan of LEGO trains and have collected some pieces (7740, 4558, 4551, 4564, Emerald, Maersk, Horizon) during the past few years and eager to see what LEGO brings out in 2015. My preference list is: Mallard The General Crocodile TEE Thatcher Perkins Bullet Train Deltic Rocket

    Model Team Definition

    I also disagree. See my previous post here. Model Team had basically two scales. The serie is definitely intended to be played with (many openable and movable parts beside steering). And Creator is not equal to Model Team.

    1977-1989: Favorite medium-large set

    8860 - remember it from my childhood and the first classic set I purchased in mint condition in 2006 after dark ages, still my second favourite "supercar" behind legendary 8880 8862 - I always wanted it next to my 8868 but only got it several yars later, paradise of functions and new pneumatic system, a true classic 8854 - IMO was the best mobile crane until 8421 has come
