    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Is this it?

    10264 Corner Garage

    All the complaining reminds me why it's usually unpleasant trying to engage with fellow fans. Sigh. Well, I think it looks great, and I'm going to enjoy adding it to my City streets.

    Nope. Commercially, very late '40s-early '50s. Experimental models existed prior to that, but wouldn't have turned up in a corner garage apartment. :)

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Cafe Corner came out in April. Fire Brigade was September. Grand Emporium, Town Hall, and Palace Cinema, March. Pet Shop, May. So I know we've had a lot of successive January releases lately, but there's also plenty of precedent for it not to be January. Just saying.n

    [PRESS RELEASE] 75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017

    Mine arrived today - outer shipping box, inner box with the label for shops warning them not to shelve it before 10/1, and then the display box itself. This thing is HUGE! And so HEAVY! :D

    [PRESS RELEASE] 75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017

    To be fair, and especially after posting in frustration about the difficulties, I should update that I appear to have successfully gotten an order for 1 to go through. We'll see how it goes, but that was way too difficult a process to hand someone so much money.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017

    Won't even let me sign in now. This is just ridiculous. Sigh. What a poorly handled rollout. Back in, in my bag, won't let me check out. If they wanted this to be so frustrating it made you rethink paying them money, they're succeeding.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017

    Wow, and their customer service number is busy. A major company rolling out a product shouldn't be failing at it this badly. Not when we're ridiculously ready to give them so much money. And now they've shut down the entire VIP login: "Our LEGO ID® service is currently unavailable. Please check again later."

    Extremely angry. Item went live, went un-live, went into shopping bag, wouldn't let me check out. Now it won't even let me stay signed in as VIP. You hype this thing, make sure your site can handle it!

    75827 Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters Discussion Whoa! $500!!! I thought it was going to be $350, which was a huge enough price. Now I'm rethinking this... :( EDITED TO ADD: I'm still seeing $349.99 on press releases, could the store site have it wrong (I hope)? EDITED AGAIN: It appears I was looking at the Australian site, sorry for the panic on my end. But I wonder why typing into my broswer took me to the AU site and not the US this time? Very odd!

    LEGO Ideas Doctor Who

    Note the cleverness here too. Granted you can currently only get the 12th in his proper outfit (or one of them) via Dimensions, but by doing the Capaldi figure here post-regeneration, that means they've packed in the ability for people to have BOTH main 11th Doctor figures - one in his tweed, and with a quick head swap in his purple Victorian gear! :)

    LEGO Ideas Doctor Who

    Entire premiere events related to Doctor Who now happen here (especially in New York). It's a global phenomenon. A lot of the most recent big reveals of various Who-related media have taken place at US comic and pop culture conventions like NY and San Diego.

    Web Series/Podcasts Discussion

    In The G2V Podcast that covers all pop culture that I co-host alongside Scott Alan Woodard, we just posted an episode for Halloween all about zombies, and a little past the hour or 1:05 mark, I talk all about the LEGO Zombie minifigure and his history. :)
