    @Ondra‌ I guess around 1500 pieces according to this:

    ^ Does set number correlate to piece count in any way?

    If we pick another scale model car as an example :
    10187 VW Beetle 1626 pieces
    10189 Taj Mahal 5922 pieces

    So by that logic 10188 DS must have about 3774 pieces - actually 3803, so close!!!

    ;-)

    I talk about sets in one year only in exclusive range, I never understand TLC logic of giving number to sets. :-)
    My guess is about 1800 pieces for Mini Cooper, but in look like thar UCS mini cooper that is on cuusoo.

    My guess is 2345, because it's a number I plucked out of thin air.

    ^No. Not as far as I know. You might be able to say it does since exclusives often have more pieces and exclusives have 5-digit set numbers, but it's tenuous and doesn't make any sense now that they all have 5-digit numbers.

    I think what @Ondra‌ is saying is that the set number is in between those sets, which means it is a similar type/theme of set, and thus he would expect it to have a similar piece count.

    No problem. I just realised I somehow missed this whole third page of comments when I wrote mine this morning. :-P So the "^" up arrow thing was meant to point at Ondra's comment on the bottom of the last page....

    I've seen rumours that #10244 Carnival/fairground ride will be the May 15 VIP set. $150 apparently, so probably between £100 and £120 in the UK.

    Not a 'modular building', just a Creator Expert set.

    My initial thought was "fake"but if you check at the front bumper there are the new 1x2 curved slopes in metalic silver built in and i'm not sure if someone would fake it with these new elements! If it is indeed the real set it's pretty awesome and it's british racing green!!! Yaaay

    I love it! Day One purchase. Since the US July calendar states early VIP release too and this is out Aug, It's now obvious what that early release is.
  • BastaBasta Australia Member Posts: 1,259
    I love it too, best set of the year (So far) IMO.

    Mehh....nice details but the curves are horrible...too boxy to be a mini cooper

    Looks pretty accurate to me. More so than the VW camper. They could have sloped the rear a little more but it may not have been possible with the scale. Overall I like it, but at $100 with no foreseeable discounting I will probably pass unless they off a mini-mini cooper polybag giveaway.
  • HokieJoe99HokieJoe99 Member Posts: 348
    Hopefully they will include alternate build instructions to show how to build it with the steering wheel on the right side of the car.

    What are the chances of a $20-$30 Midi Mini-Cooper to go along with a Mini Mini-Cooper polybag?

    Why would you want such a thing? Where would you put it? Who would buy it? Does Lego even make a rubber tire big enough? This model is perfect. Good scaling and will easily fit on a shelf or desk for display.

    For the same reason anybody would prefer a UCS X-Wing over a System set I imagine. I cant imagine its tyre size would be any bigger than the Volvo Technic set out later this year

    That was a joke, I was responding to the midi and mini mini cooper comment above mine. I like that Lego is currently producing sets in such a wide range of piece counts and price counts. It's a great time to be buying Lego.

    He was joking. A giant Lego model would look rather ridiculous considering the dimunitive nature of the mini . And unlike a Star Wars set where detailing is enhanced with the larger size I don't see the same for the mini. You can debate that all you want but you'll be still wrong in the end ; )

    No debate at all. Just pointing out that you in fact you are wrong and that Lego already make tyres big enough for a larger Mini. ;o)

    That's disgusting! It would ruin the cucumber sandwiches.

    Don't go on a picnic in the UK, it will either rain, or the insects will make your life a misery, or if you're at the beach, you'll get sand in the cucumber sandwiches...

    ^that would be amazing but just seems so unlikely. I could certainly believe a police station but a detective agency just doesn't seem to make sense, unless it's the upstairs office with something like a restaurant below it.

    Still getting som private eyes in trench coats and trilby hats would be so good!
  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,938
    I don't know. The Fire Station was 1930s and the Cinema could have been 50s. Town Hall was obviously set some time between/around then. I think we could be in with a shout of a type of private eye sort of detective agency. I'm thinking the type of police/detectives you would expect to see trying to track down Al Capone. Maybe a car chase with some bootleggers or something, or am I getting too excited? ;-)

    One can hope!
