David Beckham's LEGO Obsession

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aFUnBErsts

They don't talk about LEGO until the 3:00 minute mark. But the first part of the interview isn't bad either.

Re: LEGO Modular Houses 10th Anniversary - Share your builds and collection

Apart from Market Street, and the newest Assembly Square (which I will get eventually), I have all of the other modular building sets.

However, I have only ever built one: Parisian Cafe. :oops:

Re: LEGO's 5th largest (piece count) set coming

Looks pretty darn good... despite the price tag, the rabid Disney fans will scoop up this set.

Side note: I feel bad for LEGO; I think they were forced to reveal this set once images were leaked.

Re: 42056 porsche 911 revealed.

Interesting, the Oakridge display model & case are both gone, replaced by a 42043 Mercedes Benz Arocs. Did someone buy the display model, or did they hide the display while LEGO fixes the packaging problem first?

Re: 42056 porsche 911 revealed.

I was at the Oakridge location today and out of curiosity, asked Troy if they had any in stock. They didn't, and won't get any for at least a few weeks. But he told me that they did receive a few on day one, but there was a lineup of around 100 people out the door towards Safeway that wanted the Por...

Re: 42056 porsche 911 revealed.

As far as motorizing it, if you watch Sariel's YouTube review, he found a spot to quite easily add an XL PF motor in there. Like it was designed to have it. Perhaps TLG removed the PF since it didn't perform to their standards and simply opted to sell it as a non-PF / User upgradeable set. YouTube ...

the gears running in the correct order meant that it did not result in a great experience when driving the car
"when driving the car"... does that mean they expect many users to put Power Functions into the model?

Re: 42056 porsche 911 revealed.

Investment set? I'm pretty sure the price will only go up once it's out of production, since this set will also appeal to Porsche fans. If you can afford to drive a Porsche, then you can definitely afford this set. But the initial investment is pretty steep at $350+ tax... Rumour is there's a probl...

At that price, I'd expect a motor or at least lights.... licensing must be a killer on this one! Someone posted that they saw a power function when zooming in certain parts of the photo. If it is fully rc then they might as well have a preauthorized withdrawal from my account. If not I'd probably s...

Re: 42056 porsche 911 revealed.

I also preferred the black version.

Hmm, CA$350 is pretty hefty for 2700 pieces...

Edit: But there are a lot of features and "collector's" items. Will need to see a review before making a decision.
