  1. I see this finding it's place in discount shelf, as with Old Trafford. I'm huge Barca fan, but have no real wish for this. Ok, maybe for half price, but still , the question remains, where to put it?
  2. Sorry, did not know that selection is so limited there.

    [REVIEW] 10293 - Santa's Visit

    Nice set and very well made review, thank you!
  4. In last year and a half, LEGO whatever they put on shelfs for whatever price they put on it. During pandemic, people had too much time and a lot of money left over from all thing, which they were not able to do (like travel and other stuff). It loks to me that they became cocky and greedy. It will no last forever and then we will again see "suits" with tears in their eyes laying off people (with their bonuses resting peacefully on their accounts). There are way too many expensive sets (not just in tecnih but in genral) for normal market situation. All this costs and will have consequences. Regarding dozer: for me it's worth about 300-350 euro, so I will not buy it for anything more.
  5. I'm sure that it will soon be available for much reduced price, similar to another overpriced set, 42099, which could be bought for as low as 150 euro. Market always levels thing to its proper value. Same with Sian set, which was always on sale with good discount (I bought it for 260euro). On the other side, I've almost never saw 42100 with good discount.
  6. 400 parts does not boil down to 400 euro. I will assume 20€ average motor price and 60€ hub price (I expect them to be cheaper in set than standalone). I excluded supercars and smaller sets with "train" hub. 42100 - 4108 parts - 7 motors - 450€ - 140€ - 120€ = 190€ (C+, license) - 4,6 cpp (cents per piece) 42082 - 4057 parts - 1 motor - 230€ - 20€ = 210€ (PF) - 5,1 cpp 42055 - 3929 parts - 1 motor - 230€ - 20€ = 210€ (PF) - 5,3 cpp 42131 - 3854 parts - 4 motors - 450€ - 80€ - 60€ = 310€ (C+, license) - 8 cpp 42043 - 2793 parts - 1 motor - 200€ - 20€ = 180€ (PF) - 6,4 cpp 42009 - 2606 parts - 1 motor - 200€ - 20€ = 180€ (PF) - 6,9 cpp 42114 - 2193 parts - 3 motors - 250€ -60€ - 60€ = 130€ (C+, license) - 5,9 cpp 42129 - 2110 parts - 4 motors - 300€ -60€ -80€ = 160€ (C+, license) - 7,5 cpp 42099 - 958 parts - 3 motors - 230€ -60€ -60€ = 110€ (C+) - 11,4 cpp Bulldozer is VERY expensive. Still not more expensive than 42099, which means that I should value motors and hubs even more, but would make it even more expensive than others. I am of course aware that some cost more beacuse of new tires, LA's and similar stuff, but still, there is no excuse that it costs the same as 42100, with almost half less electronics and less pieces.

    Should people buy Fake Chinese PF motors?

    For now. But PF is EOL-ed this year and those motors may become harder to get. True, there will be C+ parts, but, as we know, those are 100% replacable, besides that, a lot of fan made MOCS are designed for PF. And RC motors are already very expensive. I always bought only original LEGO electronics (except Sbricks and Buwizz), but this may change if PF will become too hard to get.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Set will be announced on wednesday. It will be the first one with new packaging, which will be used for all future 18+ products.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Either that or use rechargeable PF battery box, which has "dial" on top, where you can select speed. Cheapest way would be to use few gears and reduce speed with that. You can also use new powered up train hub and program your speed in PU app. You can also set up interval operation, gradual start and stop etc, so it may be most realistic option.

    Thomas the Tank Engine and The Lego Group

    First two seasons were even narrated by Ringo Starr (of Beatles). Some nice memories with my son about this.
  11. BTW; if anyone is interested in proposed program, individual tours are also available with about the same program for price of DKK2499 (500 more as offered here) . I've seen all parts of it, but for first time visitors it could be worth the price, although now with LEGO house there (which also has a kind of vault and museum) only real attraction for me would be factory tour. Unfortunately all spots for 2020 seem to be taken. Regarding meeting rooms in Hotel Legoland: I've been there on an event, organised by LEGO. They have 30 meeting/presentation/conference rooms of all sizes (from 16 to 1100 people) but prices are per request only (and I expect them not to be cheap) You can see rooms, layouts and other stuff here: As for my participation, something has came up so I might not be able to come, but I will know on 13th february for sure. I still have hope.
  12. There was no mention about any such change on LAN. You need to know that this option was not something all communities in general would get, it was (probably) made possible to EB because of good relations and multi-national nature of visit, so I would not recommend going on LAN and complainig, but rather try to have "unofficial" talk with someone from LEGO.
  13. Good assortment of parts, but set itself is one of the ugliest ever. I might get it (for the diff if notthing else), but it will go straight to parts. Parformance is also dissapointing. For such small set, I was expecting this to "fly" not crawl as it is.
