  1. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    My sentiments, exactly. No problem whatsoever with reboots, but I still need my yearly fix of a new modular
  2. Well, looking at display value, two 32-wide modulars are better than one 48-wide. 16 studs more for $50 extra sounds great. PR and AS are amongst our favourite modulars, and we love DD as well, even though the style is a bit different than the others. Price-per-part-wise, AS is probably the better value. @Littleworlds argument that PR will be the first of these to be discontinued is relevant as well. I'd buy all three of them, and if that is financially unfeasible, buy the two and save up for AS Choices, choices...
  3. Negative views about the Market Street

    Well, we did bricklink it. We missed out on CC, MS and GG, since we only discovered the modular line when PS was released. We acquired the parts for the first three through Bricklink, replacing a few parts here and there due to price and/or availability. Thought not in the top half where favourite modulars are concerned (and of the first three, GG and CC are definitely better), I still like MS. It fits in relatively well with the rest, and I like the fact that the left half sort of creates a nice break when you place more modulars in a row. No question for me, it's a true modular, and I think LEGO are of the same opinion.
  4. 10259 Winter Village Station

    Wow, that's completely new to me. I've been collecting WV sets for years, but I never noticed that. It just says "discontinued". Thanks for the info, @Stefaneris.
  5. 10259 Winter Village Station

    I do not believe this... According to shop.lego.com (Netherlands), 10259 is discontinued. What the hell happened here?
  6. REVIEW: 21312 Women of NASA

    Cheers very much for puting up the review. I'm not a huge fan of this set; some nice prints on the figs, and I like the solar panel tiles, but it's not great value for money. Since the theme does not really appeal to me, I shall not buy it. But hopefully the solar panel tiles will be available soon on Bricklink
  7. What was your favourite LEGO set released in 2017

    10257 Carousel, Assembly Square and Pizza van. If forced to pick one: Assembly Square.
  8. [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    We established it as dark turqoise (colours of these pictures is way off); not used very often, and only recently reintroduced with a Friends set. I love that colour, and I'm glad we will get some more parts in it, now.
  9. [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    Yes, this isn't even close to what it should look like. Compare these with the ones over at Zuzammengebaut. No idea what filter was used here, but especially the dark turqoise is way off. Set is brilliant, though! Nice to know we have something new to build during the winter.
  10. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Yes, the antenna might indicate something like a radio station, a small newspaper office or a journalist's office (given the fig with the camera on that floor). Which would be great. Can't make out any details, but the boxer now pops out on the left of the first floor, so that might suggest a gym, or a boxing school of some kind. Anyway, this set is ours. Ours I say! Yes, that looks great! Any detail on this set yet? I can't make out the number, nor can I find it anywhere online.
  11. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Fair enough, but from what I've seen from Zusammengebaut in the past, I don't think he would base it on one leaked picture alone. Let's wait and see. The suspense is killing me. Killing me!
  12. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    This is true; it means there is no confirmation from LEGO, nor is it imminent or to be expected. But, given the detailed information on Zusammengebaut's site, and his reputation, I think we can safely say we're getting a diner.
  13. We like all the Winter Village sets; there are always sets one like better than others. The cottage is indeed too large by comparison, but we changed all the medium blue to tan and it actually looks quite nice. Difficult to pick a "worst" option; if any, it would be the Bakery as "least favourite". The surrounding builds are lovely, but the building is slightly over-simplified.

    Oh, now you really went out on a limb there, didn't you? Daredevil. Nice one! Press the eye icon in the menu bar of the text field. It's to the left of the smiley icon.

    I love this design, by the way, be it fake or not (I lean towards legit). Great Hopper-inspired ground floor fa├žade, lovely colours; we could fit this into our city no problem. No big fan of the 50s American design in general, but it looks great.
