    Looking at the sets in which it appears could help, maybe ?

    Discussion: LEGO Architecture 2018

    Ah, true. Shanghai has temples too, so maybe Notre-Dame is possible after all...
  3. Same here, but perhaps it's another licensed model designed after a bike that hasn't been revealed yet, and therefore it's going to be a summer set. 42092 will probably similar to the 8068 from 2011. I'm surprised to see there's two cards in the list, but I'm looking forward to see the GT Race Car, it's going to be smaller than the Porsche and the Bugatti, but still big enough to have real functions and a decent design.

    (I think you meant Grande Arche ?) Notre-Dame and the Sacré-Cœur are religious buildings, which makes them unlikely, unfortunately. The colourful Centre Pompidou could work well in Lego, but could be hard to get right at such a small scale. The Place de la Concorde, with its obelisk, would be easier to build.
  5. Thanks for the review, Jim. I like the style of the set, and I like the idea behind it. It's cool to see some futuristic Technic sets, like this one or the B-Model of the 42063. Looking at the crazy prototypes seen in the booklet, they could easily do plenty of futuristic vehicles in the future. Speaking of which, the tracked... thing in the bottom right hand corner reminds me of the set 8996. But from a technical and mechanical standpoint, it's a tad disappointing. It would have been nice to have suspensions, and some more complex features (like a gearbox, or a system to extend the counterweight and raise the chassis at the same time, either with liftarms or by linking the two features with gears); something to make the set more interesting for this price. I think it should be relatively easy to make a smaller version of the set, with, perhaps, more features. Smaller wheels, a smaller bucket, MLAs, that could work. Not saying that I would or could do it, though.
  6. It's very possible that they've been delayed. After all, googling their respectives EAN codes give links to an increasing number of online stores, where the Super Battle Droid is listed with a price of about 30€, and the AT-RT is 70€. But for now, we're in August, and these sets are nowhere to be seen, so it's more reasonable to assume they've actually been canceled, unfortunately.
  7. Well, I guess this topic now belongs in the Licensed subforum... This is James Bond's car in The Living Daylights. Actually, this MOC has nothing to do with the announcement of a partnership between Lego and Aston Martin and the James Bond Franchise. This is a mere coincidence. In fact, I've built this MOC for a contest (or rather a challonj') on a french forum back in May. First, here's a few reference pics (and a video demonstrating the car's spy features) : And now, my recreation of the car : The MOC was initially a virtual build, and you can see the complete model, along with some renderings, on Mecabricks. Unlike the physical build, the "original" MOC features James Bond himself. It was the best I could do, but he's not good enough to my taste, so I chose not to include him in the physical build. If you have ideas for a better Timothy Dalton Bond, feel free to tell me what you have in mind. For those who want to build it, you can open the MOC in the editor. While there are not real instructions, the model is divided in numbered groups, which should make the build easier.
  8. For BS01's Art Book Contest, I've built an alternate version of Umarak, set in a universe where Ekimu is the bad guy and Makuta is the good guy. Therefore, in this version of the 2016 storyline, the Elemental Creatures were chased by the evil Toa, and Umarak was the only one who could protect them with his powers of Light. His appearance is roughly inspired by Cernunnos, a Celtic God associated with Nature and often depicted with antlers. The gold gives him a noble and regal appearance, and the plant / green parts show his deep connection with Okoto's environment. You can see more pictures of him in the Flickr album. Cheers !

    James Bond 2018

    That big ? I would have expected it to use the same wheels as the London Bus. At least that gives an idea of the scale of the model.

    [MOC] Carnotaurus

    Nice ! I was actually planning on building one too after my ankylosaurus, but now that I've seen it, it's going to be hard to avoid looking at your MOC for inspiration. As @Littleworlds said, the head is perfectly shaped, and the tiny arms are an excellent detail that help making your MOC a recognizable carnotaurus.

    James Bond 2018

    There has been a mini Beetle, but it wasn't a polybag, it was a boxed set. It was still a GWP, though. It's been released in 2017, one year after the Expert Beetle (while there has also been a mini London Bus, which was offered... in 2016, on year before the release of the Expert Bus). In this case, it could be a mini-version of the car, but also a minifig of Bond, James Bond, depending on whether or not one is included in the set. And even if he is in the set, the GWP could be a different version of him, a different actor.

    Here's the link to his flickr gallery : https://www.flickr.com/photos/148691465@N05/ There are some very special Technic parts : I don't know if all of these parts are on sale on his BL store, though.

    Creator Expert Car 2018 Speculation

    And that's because the initial Cuusoo project included the three versions, IIRC. They "had" to include this feature, since it was part of the project people voted for. Now, given the (presumed) scale of the (presumed) car, wouldn't they be able to easily hide the spy gadgets they want to include ?
  14. You can also add this Technic connector, on which the cam is attached. Currently it's only available in black and DBG.

    Creator Expert Car 2018 Speculation

    Since the James Bond Twitter account replied to Lego's initial tweet shortly after Aston Martin, I seriously doubt that.
