  1. As I said, old "RC" system (sets 9897 and 7898) had the same solution: taps on "up" button increased speed for one level par tap and taps on "down" decreased speed for one level.
  2. Some interesting news about new controllers. It seems that we will again get "+" and "-" buttons, similrar to RC system. I think it's step back from current rotary encoders, and I hope TLG will also use "slider" controller, as in patent.
  3. Eurobricks Event 2018 - Heads Up

    Germany is big country (at least for europe), which means that people can go to many places and still pass with speaking just german and german is also spoken in switzerland and austria and many countries which have been under the influence of one of german speaking countries, so yeah, its still fairly common to meet someone who will not (either don't know to or don't want to) speakenglish. Similar is in France (even more so) or Italy. In all other, smaller countries (including Denmark), a big mjority of people speak english (at least from my experience) and even more so in Billund, which a home of such international company as LEGO (with LEGO as official languge) and many tourists visiting LEGOLAND.
  4. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    If I understood correctly, embargo on press release should be lifted at 5PM Billund time (in two hours).
  5. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Press release will be out in few hours.
  6. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Already making plans for double/quadruple version, eh? ;)
  7. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    This is official info from Kim Thomsen from LEGO community engagement team.
  8. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    There will be official announcment in "about a week". There is no indication whether currently discussed picture is officialy considered a "leak" and no special mentioning of it, expect general statement that fan media shoud avoid posting fake (or real) pictures from non-official sources. All other january stuff has been makred as "ok to post".
  9. Did Lego win the lawsuit?

    I asked Bali about that, when we met in LEGO House, and he said that they are "trying hard" and it's "very challenging" or something similar. He did not comment on me saying that more than one year ago they said that they will have "something to show" in "one year", so it seems that it's not quite going as planned. And I'm not sure that they said that they put in law suit, I think that this year was meant for collecting data and preparing lawsuit. All in all, it was my impression that it's not really a topic anybody at TLG would be happy to talk about at this stage. It was also my impression that focus is currently not so much on Lepin, but on current not-so-high-growth situation, which doesnt seem to be connected to Lepin case. Upon askig they said that they had really good growth in China and emerging markets and that they have trouble in more "traditional" areas (where Lepin is not really a threat, but they did not said that directly).
  10. Legoland theme?

    TLG could mark some sets (carousel, ferris wheel ...) as LEGOLAND, but (there+s always "but"): LEGOLAND trademark is owned by Merlin Entertainment, so TLG would probably need to pay some licensing fees or be at least in some ways dependant on their aproval, when designing those sets.
  11. They had plenty in LEGO House in Billund, but Danish price is even steeper (about 950 euro). I was there on pre-opening event and they had forty (40). At the end of the day they still had 15+ and they started un-packign them, to put them on shelves. So, here you can see rare case of ussing cutter knofe near falcon. :) So, maybe give them a call? Plane to Billund is THAT expensive if you really NEED the set. :)
  12. Well, Kim Thomsen from LEGO confirmed on LEGO Ambassador Network that this set will be "around for at least two years, like all other LEGO sets", so there is no need to worry.
  13. Online may get out of stock soon too. Or maybe even S@H crashing, like for example when sales of 41999 started.
