    Remember the patent? Remote can be turned: Technic variant: And other options. I hope second and third will include some sort of proprotional control.

    Discussion: LEGO Architecture 2018

    LEGO House is certainly worth visiting. "History Museum" in basement is kind of museum by itself. You need to buy ticket, but it's not so expensive and worth buying. While there, you could also buy rare "tree of creativity" and the other (old version) LEGO House sets. You could also visit LEGOLAND for free for last hour and a half (Legoland closes at 6PM and rides stop at 5PM, but you can enter free from 4:30 PM, maybe catch a ride or two and spend the last hour touring miniland models). How would I do it: Arrival 9:58 (checkout is very fast there) 10:15 Catch the bus to City Centre 10:30 Go to LEGO House and make the tour (5 hours should be enoug) 15:30 Go to LEGO Store in LEGO House and buy the sets 16:00 Walk to LEGOLAND (It's not far) 16:30 Enter LEGOLAND 18:00 Exit LEGOLAND and Walk to LaLandia for Lunch/Dinner 20:00 Go to Airport, Check In etc... 22:00 Depart Budget LEGO Day :)
  5. My wife used to be "soft" AFOL before we got kids, meaning that she built some sets, sorted some lego etc... Now, agreement is basicly that lego should not invade our living space too much (with two young boys, it's not always possible). She will not argue if go away on LEGO event, but in reasonable quantities (few times a year). Agreement is also to keep financial side of it under control, but that is not always possible (I do manage this by buying cheap and re-selling some if it when prices rise). All in all we do ok ok on this matter, but regardless of it, lego "case" may come "out" if we argue about something, especialy if affects my family obligation in some way (this year we had two big events in two following weekends and about a moonth befoe I spent preparing for it, so my wife a bit of "downtime" for other acivities and complained a bit).

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    FYI, LEGO just confirmed that this picture is considered a leak, so please do not post or share it. Official press release will follow in few days.
  8. End of may are LEGO Fan Media Days in Billund. Sets should be available for media to see and ask about then.
  9. I'm pretty sure that we will see partial presentations of new sets in months before start of sale. Typical case of this new approach is how they handled new Speed Champions sets. That way each sets get it's fair share of attention. And, if not before, most sets should be up for thorough "inspection" at LEGO Fan Media day in Billund, end of may.

    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.
