Haha, I had the exact same thought. And the Gotham one is just the modulars lined up and lit differently!

Get both!! I was in my teens when the F40 was launched. That car definitely resonates with me. However, the Scuttler is such a unique machine. It's like a Metal Gear Bats thingy. I love it. Hence, I recommend you to get both!

Soak in warm water with a bit of detergent or dish soap. Brush with old toothbrush. Rinse. Dry.

Rumours on eurobricks are that we might get 3 Star Wars UCS sets this year. I find that hard to believe, but I guess we'll just wait and see.

Being a ship build with multiple minifigs and sharks it's probably best to brace for blowback with a low piece count at that price, like low 1000's maybe 1500. If it has ship hull parts and masts definitely won't be 10 cents per piece. i wouldn't mind being pleasently surprised but studying that blurry image its definitely not Sea Cow size.

I'm still excited for it because i'm still dreaming of a proper Halloween seaside moc with a ghost ship, creepy lighthouse and general Dagon shit going on. I already got a couple ghost pirate captains from the monsters CMF line ready to go and i'm assuming some more with this set.

Zombie Sharks with lasers!

It was a long time ago now, but Imperial Flagship was cheaper than that. And it had 1700 pieces.

Yea, but look at the most recent ones. They have been like 700 pieces for $100. Sea Cow was a good ratio though so maybe there is hope for a good ratio.

We'll probably get a large Pirate ship next vanilla Pirates theme (to wash away the disappoint of Brick Bounty).

I'm optimistic about the forthcoming ship because the LotR Pirate ship was fantastic.

More than I was hopping for. The previous ones were $99/$119 and this one does not seen to have a high piece count.

What we know about this other set? Is it the second VIP early access set from March?

Has there ever been a pirate shipwreck? I think that'd be a good look.

Full trailer tomorrow.

I have no affinity with the Ninjago-line, so I'm not sure if I'll go see it or not. (not feeling the teaser) But it's Lego, so I might.

Before I answer you, keep in mind that I live in Brazil, and such things are crazy expensive here (new Lego sets are 100% more expensive than in US).

I paid R$ 1400 shipped. It is around US$400. It has all bags sealed but the box was opened (and flated at some point). It was quite a good deal if you consider that it is just 10% more of what Parisian Restaurant costs new here. Of course you get better deals i US, but shpping and taxes would kill them.

That's actually the ballpark I was thinking off.

I am pretty jealous, because I'd love to have more Modulars (I only have them from Pet Shop onwards, minus the City Hall which as allready OOP when I started), but I could never bring myself paying so much for one.

I only came out from the Dark Ages a few months ago. This is my second modular, after I bought Pet Shop last December. I want them all currentely still available, but have to control my spends. Maybe Palace Cinema in a few months, since it is the next to retire. But it pains me to not get Parisian Restaurant soon, since it looks lovely.

Grand Emporium is a great looking set, but more love needs to be shown to that Camper Van. That thing is such a tight little truck - along with this one it's the only City set I haven't disassembled:

The camper and the truck are great! but I don't fancy my chances of getting hold of them.

That truck is great, reminds me of a red-and-blue lorry from when I was a kid, but there were no panels for the sides, they were built up from bricks... still have it, but the instructions have fallen to pieces.

Anyway. I have always known my local newsagent sold Lego, but never allowed myself to really look. That's at an end. Spent 45 mins and 32 in there earlier today, they have quite a lot of stock considering, and most of the older stuff is somewhat discounted. :3 I realised I most like things with wheels. Here is what I got:

Great OP Phon! Thanks for starting yet another LEGO thread for us! It is appreciated.

To the group: wasn't the last Exclusive set starting with 75XXX the Sandcrawer?

Edit: no, I checked it was the new Death Star. But that 75 number primarily is associated with Star Wars.

My hunch is we will get that Pirate ship in March early VIP with an April 1st launch date if they release it like other licensed sets that launch 1-2months before the film release: Lone Ranger, Angry Birds, LEGO Movie, Star Wars and so on for the most part. Or perhaps an early VIP April for a May 1st release, but that'd be too close to a hypothetical launch for something new for Star Wars 40th Anniversary (almost) celebration.

As always, we wait and see.

It is still on the shelves here, although limit availabity. I got it in a sale 40% off. The truck too.

I still need to get Vacations Gataway to complete the camping set.
