    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Oh boooo.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I'm calling it - Winter Village Ski Shop. Look at the leaked Advent Calendar images - they're clearly from a catalogue. Look at the City one, and look at the (cut off) image above it, which looks distinctly like a Winter Village set (which would make sense to place it there in the catalogue). Winter Village Ski Shop, with ski and snowboard gear in the windows, and an A-frame and a snowman outside.

    Lego 10277 - Crocodile Locomotive

    Oh that's a different model to the one I was meaning.

    Lego 10277 - Crocodile Locomotive

    Looking at the 'different angle', it's a different model - someone's moc as opposed to the Lego model.

    Monochrome Minifigures

    Yes I found it easier to remove the print with it than with either an eraser or brasso, and it didn't seem to leave any kind of scratching or dullness. I'm not sure what price it is in the US, but considering the prices that some of the elements cost, it's probably not all that much!

    There's a product in the UK that I bought called Quixx, which I'd thoroughly recommend.

    My spreadsheet is still available via the above link. As far as I'm aware it's completely up to date. Let me know if there's some parts out there which aren't noted on my spreadsheet!

    Creator Expert 10270 Modular

    I have all the modulars except Cafe Corner and Market Street, neither of which hold any real interest to me (I BL'd Green Grocer). For me there are two 'eras' of modulars - the first era was up to Palace Cinema, and the second era started with Parisian Restaurant. This Bookshop actually feels like a bit of a 'reset', like the starting of a third era of modulars. I always felt the first era lost its way a bit with the last couple - Town Hall and Palace Cinema - and I'm sure a lot of people feel the same about the last two modulars (Downtown Diner and Corner Garage), that they weren't quite up to the usual high standard, so for me this feels a bit like a reset, like when Parisian Restaurant was unveiled after Palace Cinema, if that makes sense?

    I'd definitely buy something with a triangular baseplate...

    Yes apparently today is the day! They've been extremely good at preventing photo leaks this year.
  11. Of course TLG doesn't want the LEGO name used to describe LEGO-compatible bricks, however they're made. Because that is a slippery slope - if people get used to describing all bricks as LEGO, then LEGO becomes a name for interconnecting bricks, rather than a name for one brand of interconnecting bricks. If you doubt this, consider that in the UK (not sure about elsewhere) a vacuum cleaner is known as a hoover. I hoover the house, and when I go to buy a new one, I go to buy a hoover - even if I buy a completely different brand. The problem with this for the Hoover brand is obvious - how do they distinguish Hoover the brand from generic hoovers (i.e. all brands)? The answer is that they can't really. Once people refer to all brands as your brand name, you're knackered. That's why TLG is so precious about protecting the brand. They always have been - all large brands are the same. If a company describes one of their products as 'the Rolls Royce of [whatever]', they'll get a nice little cease and desist letter from RR's lawyers.

    2019 LEGO Trains - 70424

    I suspect that Lego have done this to solve the problem of not being able to connect a long plate under the wheel set. There's a few times in the past (when I was building trains) that I wished I could attach a plate underneath, and it's possible they decided that doing so would make a stronger connection. Otherwise, why not just make a single wheelset with plastic axle attached?

    I think I see a right arm in Vibrant Coral in the new CMF series. Not sure about any other new recolours yet though.

    I'll try to remember to do it on a computer tomorrow. Doing it on my phone would just be too painful, scrolling up and down all the time...

    Monochrome Minifigures

    There's a full list of colours and what is available in each in the spreadsheet I made available, which is linked in an earlier post. In terms of the photo, I'm not going to name the top row as I think the transparent ones can be worked out. Middle row, left to right: Medium Lavender, Violet, Coral, Chrome Silver, Sky Blue, Light Purple, Blue-Violet, Dark Flesh, Glow in Dark Trans, Glow in Dark White. Bottom row: Pearl Light Gold, Pearl Dark Grey, Flat Silver, Dark Turquoise, Sand Purple, Yellowish Green, Sand Red, Medium Orange, Pink, Bright Light Yellow, Purple.
