    Instructions: Paper vs. Digital

    I can certainly see the business appeal for LEGO, and in reality, they are never going to pass those cost savings onto us the buyers. However for me, the one draw to paper is taking me away from my computer (which I'm on now) and allows me to clear my mind whilst building. Everyone will have their own preffered method, and I can see the nice balance we have today with B models online and A models paper instructions in the box.
  2. Sariel, this is legendary, absolutely amazing life experience. Paul
  3. There goes my hope of printed parts on a £400 set! but it does look like we have gone back to quality 1980's stickers!

    42099 Mods and Improvements

    Just picked up all 3 of the 2nd half sets at a third off on Amazon in the UK this week. I note now only the crawer crane and this set are still a third off. The car transporter has now gone up in price. Might be a good deal for someone.
  5. I never got around to voting, but I did look at the entries and I would have picked the mobile power station, just a unique idea Paul

    REVIEW: 71025 LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 19

    Yes, that mountain bike being available in the minifigures is a massive plus point.

    set unopened for many years, any problems?

    Crumpled sticker sheet/instructions must be high on the list! Depending on the age of the set and how they have been packaged.
  8. And you have not considered that someone on ebay has just changed the colour of the flags in the set they are selling? There is no box, no instructions pictured. I don't see how it's anything but a modifcation made by the seller?

    Making LEGO Stickers last longer

    In reality Lego just need to go back to their sticker supplier from the 1980’s all my old sets the stickers are still mint, I’ve even been able to unstick and reposition some of the stickers better than the original owner did. they can only have changed supplier for cost reasons.

    Birmingham & Southampton Lego Stores

    There is another topic about the opening of new stores. Worth a search. I think all we know is that both stores are due to open before Christmas 2019 i think I read that Southampton was due to get a store about 5 years ago but for one reason or another it never happened. i think I also read that both shopping malls are now owned by the same management company? as for promos when I went to the opening day of Watford a few years ago, they did 3 days of opening offers, I think this was for the first 200 or 400 people who spent £50 day 1 was a T-shirt, day 2 was a lego set of a Lego shop and day 3 was a pack of 3 limited figures which had some connection with the town.
  11. Agreed, I'm sitting here waiting for Smyths Toys to offer it in the UK at 1/3 off So far they have offered it at £249 GBP, down from the £299 list for a couple of weeks. But 3rd off is my target price. They usually do this once a year so I'm just holding out and checking their website each week. Ahhh I'm sure the set is worth list price, it looks great and fun to play/watch as well, but I like a deal!

    10243 (Paris Restaurant) or 10260 (Diner)?

    The good news for us is it looks like Steindrucker is shortly to produce the litho printed parts for Palace Cinema! They are not going to be cheap, but it will at last mean my Cinema has something on the screen!

    Technic 2H2019 Video Reviews

    great reviews, definately the year of individually controlled functions rather than gearboxes. I do with they had included a third axle on that car transporter trailer, it looks odd.

    42099 - 4x4 X-treme Off-Roader

    The was a little bit of me hoping we would have to assemble to cogs within the reduction hubs......and pop it together

    Repairing 12v train motor

    When you reassembled the motor, is there any chance you put the axles in the opposite way around? i.e. causing the drive to be reversed? Not even sure if this is possible, but it would cause this to happen.
