    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors and discussion

    Thanks for clarifying! The Buckbeak seemed a bit off to me, especially with the non-articulated wings.

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors and discussion

    I'm looking at what appears to be a leaked photo of a new Hagrid's Hut, apparently from POA. There are five figures (Harry, Hermoine, Ron, Hagrid, and an executioner) plus a new Buckbeak. It looks real to me, but I'm not 100%. Surprised it's not mentioned here yet, as I saw it first a few days ago. Anyone else get a look?

    2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Saw some pics of these today- I call them "Pimp-Out Packs"

    Lego City 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    So is this confirmed? Feels like a lot of speculation right now- following recent patterns it's likely we will see a new Fire theme, a new Police sub-theme and some vehicles/exclusives, but has anyone seen an actual list?

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    So many amazing details in this set- the height restriction staff, park map and camera on the first drop really capture the experience of riding one of these! This will very likely be a day one purchase and end up being my favorite set of the year. DragonKhan- yea, it was Adventureland in Iowa. I must have rode that thing a thousand times! There was another one at Worlds of Fun in Kansas City I rode in 1983, but was gone two years later. It was a bit different and had no trains, just a single car.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Apparently someone here in Chicago already has one. It looks similar to a coaster I used to ride when I was young, called "Super Screamer"

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    It was on Facebook- basically a handful of new figures, including Dengar, Batman and Scarecrow. The Mon Cal pic was from about a week ago, that also included a new Hulk fig, presumably from Ragnarok. Wasn't sure if the pictures would fall under leaked territory.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Just saw the new Bossk and 4-LOM figures. Both look great- Bossk has printed reptilian toes! I also saw a Mon Calamari figure with stubbie legs, so I would imagine he comes with the rumored B-Wing.

    2016 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I've already seen a few of the smaller City sets yesterday at TRU here in Chicago. I picked up the new Ambulance Plane. It's a perfectly updated version of the Classic Town Med-Star Rescue Plane. I do hope it's a tease for some more Medical-themed sets in the Summer line-up. The new Fire Station looks too similar to the 2013 set for me to justify getting it. I like the Prison Island, but my layout is filled to the brim- if it goes in, something will have to come out!

    what do you call your lego city/ names for lego city?

    I've always called my town/city "Otisburg"- a Superman reference.

    Latest updates on LEGO set sales

    Today I found the small Castle Forest Ambush at Toys R Us for $4.98- fantastic deal, I thought. Four minifigs, a dog, chest with treasure, and greenery for five bucks! I got three, which adds up to a nice little army!

    Late 80's - Early 90's airport (extremely unoriginal, but cool

    Very nice set-up! Big fan of the airport sets. I remember thirty years ago seeing the first set from 1985. I was so impressed- the green runway plates, all the new slope pieces, the engines! Easily became one of my all-time favorites. I stuck with the flight theme right up to Town Jr. I do have most of the City planes as well, but agree they are hard to display. I don't mind their size, as they are scaled better to City vehicles.

    REVIEW: 6390 Main Street

    I believe the road signs are changed in the Legends version, and the car wheels use the snap-on hubs instead of the metal axles. Also, the female minifig has a different hairpiece. The roadplates are slightly changed as well. Those are the differences I noticed when I originally saw the new set. Wow- Main Street is thirty-five years old! Still my all time favorite set!

    The LEGO Movie snubbed for Oscars

    This news is indeed disappointing- I was a thousand percent sure it would get nominated AND win. I'm just wondering if the live-action sequence disqualified it for not being 100% animated. I don't know if that's a rule or guideline or whatever, and I can't think of any winning film that had live action in it.

    How do you spend your VIP Points?

    I generally save up points for a very long time- I redeemed $60 worth back in 2012 towards the Death Star. After that I redeemed points in May of 2014 for a UCS SSD, which I only had to pay $30 in cash! My goal now is the Sandcrawler. I've got about $65 in points now, so I'm coming along.
