  1. [MOC] Bottled water delivery truck

    Nice! Great idea
  2. MOC: Modular Surf & Ski Shop/Travel Agency

    Nice! Like others, I like these angled front windows Is the couch/chair missing a 1x1 tile on purpose? Or is this an error? :D
  3. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I did (well, I did back then), I didn't like it, so the parts for it went to the parts bin and I use instead a firetruck from the City line And about the PC limousine, it was so ugly that I had to mod it, which was not so difficult to achieve a result that was good enough for me:
  4. 10259 Winter Village Station

    As I'm in Brussels, it is already a little closer, I consider it worth the drive for at least 20€ discount and the joy of the PaB-wall. Indeed the PaB wall is decent, at least better than Wijnegem (from the few times I went there), but I usually go there only once a year, I don't know how often they change the contents. This time (a few days ago) there were less new items than usual though. Aren't some German store closer to you? I once went to Köln (further than Lille for me) just to buy the Ghostbusters HQ + the modular Brick Bank, as the total discount compared to Belgium S@H was 70€ (and still significant compared to the French price, this time).
  5. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I meant sold as a "set" (i.e. in the "Classic" line) But indeed it is still available from B&P (from the inventory of the Sydney Opera) at 6.8€, good to know. And the blue 16x32 at 3.84€... Or the 48x48 at an outrageous 18.86€. This also allows to get the green one (instead of bright green) from the Assembly Square, though that at 7.5€ it seems even more overpriced... (and the 32x16 is at 4.17€)
  6. 10259 Winter Village Station

    We (people from Belgium, Netherlands, and sometimes France where it is not always as cheap as in Germany either) complain from time to time, but usually they reply some things like that they adapt prices to markets with various criteria. So from time to time I go to the store in Lille (France) to buy big sets rather than ordering them online. So for example I'll soon go buy the Ninjago City there to spare 30€, that I'll spend at the same time by filling cups at the PaB wall To come back to the subject, was it mentioned here how strange it looks that the last wagon of the train hovers above the ground because there weren't enough tracks? https://images.brickset.com/sets/AdditionalImages/10259-1/10259_Back_01.jpg (I've read that on another forum, and indeed before reading it I didn't really notice how strange it was)

    The "individual" blue baseplate was replaced by the tan baseplate in 2015
  8. 10259 Winter Village Station

    No: +5 € in Belgium compared to Germany: as often the Belgian Lego prices are higher :/ (here without any reason, since it is the same currency)
  9. 10259 Winter Village Station

    Not a "punishment", just a consequence of the value drop of the £ compared to other currencies, DKK in this case: Lego wants to get the same amount of DKK as before, so if the £ has a lower value than before, they need to ask more £ to get their DKK ;) http://www.xe.com/currencycharts/?from=GBP&to=DKK&view=2Y
  10. Lego minifig scaled animals

    nice! they look good
  11. Train Projects on Lego Ideas

    The San Francisco cable car falls in that second category, that's something that could work well outside AFOLs and trains fans
  12. Unreleased/Cancelled LEGO Sets

    They didn't throw them "away", doesn't the legend says they kept them close by burying them in concrete?
  13. Survey: New parts and new colors

    Actually I think that the Chinese maker copied it from Hasbro/Kre-o ;) But that may indeed by seen as a "problem" for Lego : many parts left for them to "invent" were actually already "invented" by others, as these are logical derivatives from existing parts.
  14. PAB Cups: What Did You Get?

    color balance seems a little weird, or there are some very unusual colors (what color is supposed to be that 1x3 plate ?)
  15. Missing Slopes

    but that's not lego, it is like saying that parts exist because megablocks do them
