    The future of Back to the Future

    I hope that we can get a few sets based on some of the more iconic scenes and vehicles from the film. I would love to see the Twin Pines Mall parking lot time travel experiment translated into a set, as well as the scene where lightning strikes the courthouse's clocktower, returning Marty and the Delorean to 1985 from 1955. I would also like to see a set based on the cafe and the scene where Biff crashes into a manure truck after chasing Marty through Downtown Hill Valley in 1955, as well as the 2015 hoverboard chase scene that ends with Griff and his hoverboard gang crashing through the entrance of the Courthouse Mall translated into a LEGO set.

    Lego City 2022 Rumours, Leaks, Information And Discussion

    I love the new supermarket. I hope to buy more than one copy to double the size of the building and more features that are found on most real supermarkets, like automatic sliding doors, more than one shopping cart, meat department with butcher, bakery with baker, frozen foods, etc. Maybe I could also add a motorized spinning rooftop sign, too.

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2022

    I like the references to LEGO themes of the past, including Znap, as well as the Adventurers, Paradisa, Classic Space, etc. sets inside the LEGO store, with the branding of the elevated train being a nod to the Airport Shuttle monorail set. It's similar to the Galidor reference they dropped in Ninjago City...

    For the price, the LEGO Monkie Kid City of Lanterns building set does not fail...I love it! An entire city in a box (with its own mode of transportation) which is from a theme based on a modern sequel to the ancient Chinese story Journey to the West, a set not quite as expensive (or on the same level) as Ninjago City, but with the target demographic of China in mind. At least when compared to the previous waves' biggest, most expensive sets, it does not break the bank as much. There are some bigger $200 sets in the whole line that break the bank...

    Oops! I meant to say that! Poor man's Ninjago would've been the 1998/1999 LEGO Ninja theme...

    Another possible reason for the limited release through LEGO Shops in many parts of the world and other stores in China is the poor timing of the release, with the virus (which originated in China) causing a worldwide pandemic, which started in late 2019 and everything...some countries still have a shaky political relationship with China, which those countries had for decades... Also, the sets feel like a poor man's version of Ninjago to some LEGO fans (but not me!)...

    The City of Lanterns set is my first ever exposure to the LEGO rollercoaster pieces, in which the track and car pieces are being used in this set as a small elevated train themed to Pigsy's Noodles (one side of some of the cars is covered in graffiti), which transports passengers to the upper level of the city, where The Lotus Hotel, the Speedy Panda Convenience Store and a LEGO Store are located.

    Have you tried BrickLink or Bricks & Pieces? I bet they have some at either of those two websites... I haven't missed a step when I built my set, although the people at LEGO forgot to add a dark gray 1x12 plate, which I substituted with a dark gray 1x8 and 1x4 plate in the building of the Pigsy train platform.

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2022

    I enjoyed putting together my City of Lanterns set. I like all the tiny little details, including the minifigure-sized vintage LEGO building sets in the LEGO Store (Black Seas Barracuda, Pharaoh's Forbidden Ruins, Poolside Paradise, Galaxy Explorer, Yellow Castle, etc.), the the Lotus Hotel, The Panda's convenience store, the Bubble Tea stand, the Karaoke bar, the elevated Pigsy train and the Chinese restaurant. I also like that the city robots included with the set are a callback to a similarly-designed robot in the Mystic Mountain Time Lab from the Timecruisers theme. The set also has no shortage of lanterns, which are either made from trans-red minifigure heads or red pumpkin elements...

    Ideas for new City sets

    I would love to see LEGO roadside motor hotel (motel). It could include a few furnished motel rooms with exterior entrances leading to the parking lot, an office, a restaurant, and an outdoor pool, plus parking for various cars. The set could include two hotel employees, a family, a businessman and two cars and a truck. My basic inspiration for this idea is those pictures of the small roadside Best Western motels I saw in a Flickr photo gallery that were found in cities and towns all over the United States and Canada from the 1950 to the 1990s. I would like to see the LEGO Group model their next City hotel after roadside motor hotels, which are commonly found throughout North America, like this Best Western motel, which was once located in Winslow, Arizona, USA:

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2022

    I just ordered my copy of the Monkie Kid City of Lanterns LEGO set after I was done watching the New Years Eve special on TV. I'm expecting it to come in either a few days or a few weeks, depending on how much online traffic the LEGO Online Shop has to deal with...

    The signs mounted on the telephone pole next to the Panda convenience store in the LEGO Monkie Kid City of Lanterns set hint at a 90th anniversary milestone for the LEGO Group next year. The LEGO Group was established in Billund, Denmark in 1932 by the Kirk-Christiansen family. The forerunner of today's LEGO bricks were introduced in 1947 by the LEGO Group, while the LEGO Group's primary business was still making handcrafted wooden toys... Another thing I've noticed in the City of Lanterns, is how the Citybot robot minifigure builds pay homage to a similar brick-built robot minifigure, Cranky the Robot, from the TimeCruisers Mystic Mountain Time Lab.

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2022

    I'm looking forward to getting the LEGO Monkie Kid City of Lanterns set. It's about half as expensive than Ninjago's attempt at a "city" LEGO set in their Ninjago City set, plus the City of Lanterns includes an elevated train in addition to a few tiny "modular" stores and restaurants...it has that really cool "Chinatown" aesthetic about it...
  14. I think an updated remake of set 6441 Deep Reef Refuge from the Town Divers subtheme would be great. It would consist of an expedition boat, undersea laboratory base, coral reef with buried treasure and a submersible all updated to LEGO City theme standards.

    Bricklink questions

    Since I did not know what to do, I decided to discontinue use of that account, and lucky for me, I had two different e-mails, so I swapped out my current e-mail for an older e-mail on my old account, and moved my current e-mail to a fresh, new account. Hopefully, I don't screw up when using my new account...
