    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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

    [REVIEW] 42108 - Mobile Crane

    Thank you for the review. I'm not really a fan of this set, but I guess that for 100 euro, that's what you get. Oh, and I think that you got number of parts for 42009 wrong, for about 2000 parts.
  9. As Kim said, LEGO has whole department, which exists just because of fans, but the problem is whether they are heard inside the company. We also need to take into account that it would be futile to expect that LEGO would change something, which is not directly aimed at fans, like for example city sets and other stuff kids oriented stuff. For some sets, which are indeed primarily adult oriented, designers will often already know what those want and implement it, if its possible. I've been on many presentations and talked to many designers of afol oriented sets and they all knew very well what we want. Designers often include popular parts (even where its not necessary), look to use interesting colors and even go that far to include baseplates (which are rare these days) in as many colors as possible. So, from set design and structure, I would say that they listen, where it's possible (or makes sense). Another area is LEGO-LUG relations. Cooperation is very good here, although some changes were implemented too much in "take it or leave it" or "it is as it is" way, without any option to discuss it before. But (there is always "but"), some fails were such that they easily broke a lot of trust, gained over years. Let's take for example last such case, the infamous takeover of Bricklink. Whoever has access to LAN will know that it caused A LOT of negative feedback. At first, it was maye a bit unjust, since it was not really known what will happen. But then new TOS came out and some of the worst fears came true. And the worst thing is that it was really communicated badly, with basicaly no answers given from the team, no warning given before new TOS were implemented (in a way that everybody was FORCED to accept them, without even slight warning) and so on (list is long). I've been always a "promoter" of LEGO company in our LUG, saying that they are not so bad etc..., but what can I do now? Nobody from LEGO was able to present one good side of this, no questions were answered, and everything, which was done, it was done (at least seemingly) in complete ignorance of all AFOLs. And it makes the company look really bad.

    TLG acquires Bricklink

    I would say Rebrickable, possibly Brickset too.

    New train wheels tested by LEGO

    Sorry, what I wanted to say is "how sets can be stored". True. About half year ago I was part of Workgroup on the future of Powered Up and guys, wich are in charge of it at LEGO confirmed that hub was designed so that battery holder could be replaced with rechargeable battery pack which is in develpment. Unfortunately, LEGO still needs to decide if they start selling it all, since numbers for PF variant were not that good (probably because price was insane).

    New train wheels tested by LEGO

    They probably used new rechargeable insert, which is in development. Unfortunately, its not very likely that we will see it in any of retail train sets, since it would significantly limit how and where such set could be sent and also put a lot of restraint on how such sets would be used.
  13. LEGO Community team shared this video: What do you think?
  14. City trains will almost certainly stay in 6 wide. They are expensive even as they are now and any rise in price would just make it worse. We may get another AFOL targeted 8 wide train, now that the ice is broken.
