  1. Apart from bits of old cardboard looking naff under the feet of the tables, have you considered replacing the plastic tube ends in the table legs with version. They are quite low cost and you've already spend money on nice tables, could be a better solution. Appreciate it's too late now to solve the warped baseplate issue. https://www.vital-parts.co.uk/for-tubes-set---set032-13651-p.asp?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIztvN16327wIVZWHmCh0eHwxqEAQYASABEgJSJPD_BwE

    [RUMORS] 6x6 Mercedes Zetros

    We are looking at a Green and White remake of the 42070 which was not a great seller from memory, just modernised for Control+ and a license to increase the price a bit more. mmmmmm not even a crane in sight. We always live in hope these prelim images are not the final thing....but too often they are close to reality. American Tow Truck could be the star of the technic lineup this year.

    42131 - CAT D11T Bulldozer

    If that image on the web is real, it does not look a very big Dozer for a 4000 piece set. The yellow tracks kind of lead the image to be a possibility. but it looks quite junior in design/image. Im not sure. Might be a year when the non flagship set is the best set of the year.

    42128 - American Tow Truck

    Took a bit of searching, but found it in the end. Truck looks great, love the addition of some pneumatics, but now the crane looks too big in comparison to the scale of the truck. Maybe it's just mounted high on the truck to allow for the lift on the back. But with 42070 we had a big heavy duty truck with a piddly little crane, and now we have the reverse. I'm ok with the colour scheme, I quite like the way the side outriggers fold into the body of the truck. Try rear axle is a nice design. Just wish Lego would take another look at their hook offering. Those little plastic hooks could surely be improved on.

    42121 Hydraulic Excavator

    I would have preferred the B model without the backhoe part, I think just a regular plough or a working three point lift would have been enough. Sometimes I think it would not hurt that a couple of parts extra in the set would improve the B model massively. But nice to see B models back.

    wow, little more that can be said.......the number of hours to just assemble this set......

    Ideas for new City sets

    Where sales outside of USA will be almost zero..... I think some kind of plate which can either accept lego train tracks or even just rails, or maybe even moulded in rails is a likely thing at some point as I'm sure they would look to have a level crossing for trains, which merges into the new road plate system.

    Ordering from Lego.com in the UK

    Ordered mine on the 1st as well, and it took about 2 weeks. At least I did not get hit with a Duty or VAT invoice on delivery, so we should consider ourselfs lucky!

    latest lego quality standards

    I too am seeing this more and more, I got around to builiding the 2019 technic set 42092 Rescue Helecopter the other week. I was quite disappointed to find the white panels in the set a different colour. Both the Panel 1 were a milky white (I assume they changed the colour on the molding machine, but did not flush the old colour out before starting production, and both the panel 2 were bright normal white. I do need to contact Lego customer services, but I almost feel like I'm contacting them too often at the moment, it's at least once or twice a year. The last time, I was building the Big red flagship crane from the other year, and one of the bag 4's was completely missing from the set, but I had 2 of another of the bag 4's. It's awful to say, but you think they won't believe you when you contact them too often. but when you buy a lot of sets, it's definately noticable how many more issues there are now days. Posting this has just encouraged me to report to Lego ;-)

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I just can't really see a hospital, I just don't think it fits in a row of shop fronts. I think to do it properly, it needs a larger building because there are so many departments required in a hospital. The same for a school. I don't really recall the scenario where you would have a school in a row of shops. I think that might remain in the friends lineup. For me the obvious missing buildings are Post Office (surely Lego read forums and have seen the mention of a post office for the past 10 years) Vintage Toy shop (although we had a toy department in the Grand Emporium I like the suggestions above of the record shop and the ice cream parlour as well. They would work well.

    LEGO Trains 2021

    I'm kind of wondering with the release of the new road plates in the City lineup this year, I wonder if we may get a version with track slots or moulded in so they can release a level crossing accessory? I'm very sceptical about any patterns people sometimes see in lego releases around the train line. Fingers crossed for something this year.
