  1. I've never seen one but I guess it's possible. It seems like the functionality exists solely to rotate the water cannon. Really strange.
  2. 60214 is not the tiller truck you're referring to. https://www.instagram.com/p/BqZOxoVBWwl/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=k4nhrd3hbbak
  3. 60214 Looks like a great engine aside from the swiveling rear half. Why on earth would it do that? Could be easily modified, i guess.
  4. two things: I've never seen a snow machine attached to the back of a groomer. I've seen avalanche guns, usually small howitzers, but they typically aren't on groomers either and I don't think that's what they're going for here. I'm very familiar with the types of fire apparatus we have here in the US. You listed the exact reasons why I feel the fire truck is unrealistic.
  5. I remember those 9v sets...I had the medical helicopter and enjoyed the functionality. In terms of realism, light bars have been getting smaller and more streamlined in recent years...this Lego light bar looks like it's straight out of the 70s. They could have used a piece similar to the roof slope and hidden a watch-type battery in there. Missed opportunity. This version works just fine for the Juniors line but IMO it's too tall for regular City vehicles.
  6. A couple of thoughts: Snow Groomer: looks nice except for the shooter. Might consider buy and leaving it off. Dock Side Fire: this looks like a Juniors set, which is fine but including it in the regular City line is a poor choice from a design perspective. Reminds me of the dark age design from the late 90s / early 2000s. Fire Brigade: Lights (see above), the tractor trailer fire truck design is pretty unrealistic, still. Lego has done this several times over the last 10 years and they never look right. I like the concept of the building / crane. Harvester: I agree that the set would be better served with a dump truck rather than the transporter however it's not all that unrealistic. I appears that the two outer harvester blades (gears) flip up towards the machine for transport, a realistic feature. Not sure if it was mentioned but this particular type is called a forage harvester.
  7. It looks like it's self contained but it's still too big proportionally for a 6-wide vehicle. It looks silly.

    Seasonal 2018

    I assume no Seasonal vignettes this year, similar to 40262, 40263 from last year? I like these to supplement the Winter Village.
  9. As you say, drones are becoming a thing...fire departments are using them for large incidents, wild fires...but I don't know of a sky police unit here in the US. The closest thing would be an air marshal but they are just undercover federal agents flying on commercial aircraft. Seems like a fantasy theme.

    [Review] 40358: Bean There, Donut That

    @MKJoshA Did you find this in the typical Lego aisle or somewhere else in the store? I stopped by a store that, according to Brickseek, had it in stock but I couldn't find it. An employee I talked to was no help. Thanks for the review. With a few minor modifications I think this will make a nice addition to the Winter Village outdoor market scene.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The truck is a bit lacking and I wish the doors opened outward but I like it overall. Will be adding this to our winter village for sure.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I'm really surprised how well they've been able to keep this under wraps. Looking forward to the images this weekend.

    Creator Expert Car 2018 Speculation

    I agree with this 100%. I think they captured the curves / lines as well as can be expected but I would rather see this as an Aston Martin model instead of a 007 model if it meant the proportions were more accurate. Couple that with the price / piece count and I think this'll be the first Creator Expert vehicle I skip.

    Creator Expert Car 2018 Speculation

    I'm not sure what you were expecting. It looks 100% consistent with the Creator vehicle style: watered down lines and squared sides / doors. My issue with it are the proportions (it looks too long) but it's hard to tell with one sub-par quality image. I'll wait until the official images and details before I decide to buy or not.

    The inconsistency was clearly done on purpose.
