    Lego's ships are all designed as older than the ones we often see in MOCs. They are more akin to galleons of the 17th century than the frigates/man-of-war of the late 18th and early 19th centuries,hence the fore/stern castles, rather than a continuous with a quaterdeck over the rear. The Imperial Flagship follows the same theme, except it has three masts, but the sterncastle is still very evident. One can only assume that Lego are setting their Pirates theme in the Golden Age of Piracy in the late 1600s...

    It will be available to order on the 1st or you will be able to go in store then. Lego don't do "pre orders".

    So I love it, with a few provisos. Firstly, I really appreciate being able to split in to a 16x32 baseplate for each building, a la Pet Shop, because it provides more flexibility with layouts. The Bookshop looks great next to PR As AllanSmith's image shows, and more places for Lego minigifs to live that aren't tiny apartments are appreciated. Basically more houses please Lego! Love the colours, love the tree. I agree with others that the townhouse is too short though - it definitely needs that second floor. I wonder what it looks like next to the Pet Shop buildings with and without?The backs are plain but I never see those anyway... I'll be buying two or three copies on the 1st Jan!

    10259 Winter Village Station

    Picked up today from LEGO retail shop. Early VIP access.
  5. I went to the Cardiff (UK) store. 24 available. Queue got up to 20 in total, so there were 4 available at the end, but there were multiple phone calls from people wanting to come pick them up in the morning, so they'll be all gone by now. 8 more arriving Monday. I arrived 0845 and got number 14, which is surprising to be honest as the store never normally gets this amount of traffic for launches. Earliest arrival was 0700.

    10247 Ferris Wheel

    Yeah, £150 is fine for the price, I was worried it was going to be £200. The new tree design is amazing. Can't wait to get this!

    REVIEW: The Simpsons - Kwik-E-Mart (71016)

    Mine is on the way - I'm not collecting Simpsons, but as a set it is unmissable for integrating in to a city layout.
  9. You've done really well with that haul - the monorail track alone is worth more (9 long straights!), let alone the supports and train baseplates. You've also picked out the important parts you'll likely need - but ensure you get a good motor, not one that is on its way out. I love my monorail. I've got the Airport Shuttle and Transport base, then a still MSIB accessory track pack that I haven't ripped in to yet, then a bunch of bricklink'd track.
  10. Being honest, I prefer older Lego planes to the new ones with the big pre-fab wings/noses and the like. The new ones are simply too big, and when trying to integrate them in to a city layout they're virtually impossible. The older ones like yours are much better.

    MOC: Yacht "Sirius"

    Absolutely adore this, to the point I want to build my own. Any chance of further information as to your building method, or even some form of instructions?

    60051 and 60052 sold out?

    Interesting. Argos in the UK just sold off their 60051 stock for £70 (down from £100), so nearly 1/3 off. Could be they're actually gone?

    10246 Detective's Office

    It's pretty clear from the picture. The 32x32 brown that came with the DO, and then an additional 16x32. I've got two copies of DO, and this looks like a good way to 'fix' it. Any chance of more pictures, Headofprops?
  14. I just snapped one up for a £30 discount in the UK, BNIB. I was wary of buying it full price (I really don't need more R40 curves...) but the discount swayed me. The nosepiece is massively improved over 7897. Rebuilding in brick is possible, but I'm going to live with it as is for a while.

    Jawa Sandcrawler 75059 Help

    Post up some pictures of your build. My sandcrawler is right next to my desk, so I can then show you the correct build method.
