Peter1975Peter1975 DeventerMember Posts: 166
I found the next article on:

It tell's there will be 3 new sets.

The first will be a Mini Cooper MK VII, setnr 10242
The second will be 10245 Winter Village. Santa's House With Santa, his wife and 4 elves.
The third will be 10244 a Carnival set wich will fit in the Modulair series.

Is there anyone out there who know's more about this?

    The carnival set will fit in to the modular series?

    Excuse me for my poor Englisch. I meant it will be another modulair with a Carnival theme...

    10244 might tally with the rumours of a Waltzer Fairground attraction discussed on the forum a couple of months ago.

    I love the idea of a Santa's house - starting to wish I gathered more elves when CMF Series 11 was still widely available.

    There's due to be a VIP early release in mid May. I'm hoping for the Mini!

    Seems a little funky to me. As much as Santa goes with winter and the holidays not sure how a mystical scene would fit with the otherwise realistic winter scene.

    Same thing for the carnival scene, not modularesque once so ever

    However I digress, per usual no one can predict what TLG will do!
  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 2,790
    Maybe it's more of a Santa's grotto? A place where children can visit?

    ^ That makes a lot of sense actually from a "realism" standpoint, and could be pretty cool.

    Though I still want my Haunted-House-caliber, North Pole based Santa's Workshop.

    the carnival that fits in w/ the modulars sounds super intriguing.
  • KleiovousKleiovous UKMember Posts: 95
    Will be interesting to see how they handle the windscreen on the mini, green with white stripes sounds good though! Hopefully british racing green.

    I have Santa and elves in my winter scene. The way it fits into a realistic village is that it is more a pavillion/outdoor house area, where Santa sits in his chair and their are kids waiting in line to meet him. As someone described almost a 'grotto'c It is part of my entire outdoor winter fair. I think if a house was done in that sort of theme, it would look the part of a winter village fair.
  • tamamahmtamamahm Member Posts: 1,952
    Hmm. Okay ignore that. Translating the web page, it really does sound far more like a Santa House/workshop, with sleigh and reindeer. For us, though, it should be fun, although I would think smaller than I would like for such a set. Sounds fun, and after reading the carnival description that sounds interesting as well.

    I can't imagine how a fairground fits in with the Modulars. How would it even connect to the rest of the sets? I could see maybe a small city park built on an empty lot between the buildings, but a fairground? Is it possible that the source is mixing up the Modulars with the LEGO Creator Expert Builder series?

    I'm especially curious because I'm toying with the idea of getting into the Modulars after seeing the beautiful Parisian Restaurant. However I don't really like the earlier Modulars, so for me it is all about if LEGO can keep up with the quality and details of the Parisian Restaurant in the future. A fairground in the series just doesn't excite me. I hope it is not the next Modular set.

    Of course it is probably best to wait and see how this news turns out without drawing too many conclusions right now.

    Was there ever a proper santa if there's going to be a santa's grotto? all the Lego santas I have look like a burglar or maybe a pirate pretending to be santa.

    That would be my guess. The article mentions it includes 12 minifigures; that would be somewhat odd for a modular.

    My snooty Modular Building occupants may have a problem with the Carnival being in the neighborhood. Perhaps it will get bumped next to Market Street's courtyard to buffer the noise from the carnies...

    These rumors sound fantastic! Bring them on.

    As I said on Eurobricks...

    I honestly can't see a carnval set being part of the modulars line. They're modulars, not fairground rides!

    I think it's more likely to be that it's another 'fairground ride' to go with the Grand Carousel. I think someone has got their wires crossed, and it's possible that whoever was telling them said that it'd go well with the modular range.

    The Sandcrawler is on its way. No PF but instead is a sizable playset.

    Waltzer Fairground Attraction. Due out in the summer. Lead to believe it is of a similar concept to the #10196 Carousel.

    The Mini isn't a rumour. It too is true and will come in the form of the 'old' style of car - pre 2000.

    Ouch!

    Did you hurt yourself with the barbedness of your quoting?

    Why not wait until someone else pointed out that you were probably right, rather than do what amounts to gloating?

    If you have not used google translate on the webpage, here is the fair description from the link in the first post....


    Talk of the town
    Now on to the Modular Building Series. Emma stands with Tina in the city. It has the latest gossip. Again, a new set, namely, the fairground (LEGO 10244).

    Tina has plans recognized and told about it: "After the Parisian restaurant , the cinema , the Pet Shop , Fire Station , the Department and City Hall , the Carnival.
    LEGO 10244 - Fair

    Emma reporter
    You can buy your ticket in the box provided. There are several attractions. There is a fold attraction (Swirling Mixer) that lights up at night (glow in the dark). Folded he can transport ". Says Tina. The Fair set (LEGO 10244) contains 12 minifigures, including a juggler on stilts, a man who is dizzy from the ride, two boys and two girls, ticket star and much more. We are just as curious as you. If there is more news about the fair we will definitely report it.

    It's not like he won a prize or anything. If he called it, what's a little gloating going to hurt anyone?

    Btw, I sure hope he's actually wrong. As far as carnival rides, so, I'd think a scrambler or monster would be more iconic (US perspective here, mind you).
  • DougoutDougout Member Posts: 888
    All this is great news. Sounds like some interesting sets. I can see a carnival being in the modular line, it would be a good change up. Lego hasn't said that the modular line has to be just one building, a well displayed fair would be nice. Towns need fairs, parks, and open areas just as much as they need the grocery stores, fire stations and town halls.

    As I understand it, a Waltzer is basically a Tilt-A-Whirl, which is pretty common in the US. I agree a Scrambler would be more iconic in the context of US fairs (at least where I'm from), but it might be difficult to do well at minifigure scale. I had to look up the Monster; I've always known that one as the Octopus.

    If it is indeed a Tilt-A-Whirl, I hope it comes with a pixie-dust spreader.

    Parks and open areas, yes, but towns don't need fairs, otherwise fairs wouldn't travel from town to town.

    The only way I could see it possibly fitting in and working is if it had a 3 baseplate 'inverted corner' layout. I suppose if it sat on 2 baseplates side-by-side, that might work too, especially at the end of a layout.

    In the US, Carnivals travel around and set up on fairgrounds mostly. I'm sure there are carnivals set up in cities, but usually not right in the middle of the city. Usually in the outskirts.

    @TheLoneTensor. I remember a carnival setting up at the Westland mall. Still, it isn't in a city setting.
  • Pitfall69Pitfall69 0 miles to Legoboy's houseMember Posts: 11,383
    I will definitely buy the Carnival set, but will display it in my children's room.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Santa's House, although, wouldn't it be the same as the Toy Shop? Maybe TLG is catering to people who missed out on the Toy Shop the first time around???

    Pitfall69, I can see your thinking here. But I see the first Toy Shop as a toy store in a winter village. When I think of a Santa's workshop, I see a lot of red, green, and elves everywhere.

    I think the difference can be similarly compared to the idea of a "Polar Express" Emerald Night vs. the Holiday Train.

    I think when the Santa's house comes out the elves are going to be worth even more than they are right now so if you missed out when they were in retail stores I would buy elves now before it comes out or at least when this set becomes a solid fact.

    ^Not if the set has loads of them included and is relatively inexpensive... (Yeah, like that'll happen! lol). I expect it'll push close to £100, as the Winter Village set prices have all been heading north (pole). :oP

    Way to make someone with three or four feel a bit inadequate. Might grab a few more before the news is confirmed and in the wider public domain.
