    Powered Up - A tear down...

    Certain sound effects seen in the app are what I would closely associate with a USA railroad rather than a European one. Horn and level crossing at least. i don't suppose the sound effects change depending upon the language selected in the app? I note you selected USA as your language for the video. Just wondering if they were clever enough to change the sounds based on language/region of the world. Paul

    Review 60198 Cargo Train (picture heavy!)

    So, I like: The train, The selection of carriages The forklift The continuation of the branding of the cargo train so it fits with other cargo sets The continuation of the logging theme, logging truck, logging tractor, etc So I don't like Only a left hand point, as a child that would annoy me than I cannot make a bypass loop I'm not sure we needed a crook and money truck, but hey, I can live with this.

    REVIEW: 10261 LEGO Creator Expert: Roller Coaster

    It's a great set which I'll try and own at some point, but I'll live in hope they offer this set via Smyths toys and I'll await a 20 - 25% discount which will hopefully come at some point.

    Lego 75955 Hogwarts Express

    Magnetic couplings, least of our worries, looks like they have done away with the train track as well! Should keep the costs down.

    2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    mmmm, mixed feelings here. On the box art, it looks amazing, but then when you see the small collection of mini builds arranged close together, it's a little less impressive. I like the bus and ice cream car, nice touch with the electric car charging point. The hotel is ok, the museum appear to have like 1 exhibit, I'm thinking it's a bit of a rubbish museum. I just wish Lego would see the benefit of including road plates again. How good would this set have been with a bit more street furniture, and the builds layed out around a couple of road plates. I count 13 minifigs, must be getting to the maximum we have seen included in a city set? Also hot dogs appear to be the new junk food item of choice for our little minifigs

    10261 LEGO Creator Expert Roller Coaster

    One thing I'm really looking forward to is seeing what AFOL's can achieve with this kit at some of the shows and exhibitions when they combine multiple sets or use the rumoured track expansion pack. We have seen what has been achieved without the specialised parts which is quite a feet, now it's only a matter of time to see some monster roller coaster being constructed and displayed.

    10261 LEGO Creator Expert Roller Coaster

    I'm stll hoping we might get a designer video of this set. But anyway, I wonder if it will be Lego exclusive or whether this will find it's way down to the big retailers like Smyths Toys? I live in hope to get 20% discount if it does.

    42078 - Mack Anthem

    Anyone know the purpose of the spare steering wheel above the seats in the A model? I put it in as per the instructions, but I cannot see the point? Or was this just using a part which is needed in the B model?

    Exxon Version of 6371

    I like the way the cars back then actually had a fuel filler, now days we are lucky if we get doors! How times have changed.
  14. I too am based in the UK, and love Technic, but as a collector, As we know Technic sells well in the UK, but having attended many of the public shows in the past 5 years, Technic has rarely featured as a display piece. Yes many builders use technic components in their builds, but these are usually only strutually or for functions. Used to be a chap who was local to me who used to do massive Technic builds, Simon was his name I think. I definately saw him at a few of the shows with some mighty impressive technic and robot constructions, but I've not seen him around for a couple of years now. Paul

    12v box redesigns in 1989, collectores pls help

    Always great to see these old boxes, I own most of them in one form or another, most are tucked away in the loft. I sometimes wonder if LEGO realise just how spot on they had trains back in the 80's. OK, running reliability was not as good as the 90's 9v era, but the image, build quality, and all were just so good. Thanks for sharing these pictures. I I ever venture into the loft in the next few months, I'll take the camera up with me. Paul
