In the comments to that thread @legoknight75 comments on a 200 per store version of the VIP release. Does anyone have any more info on this?
Just to throw my lot in on baseball I always just think of this when people talk about it
And this for football
I enjoyed asterix when I was young but I don't think I'd be interested in it now.
I think the 2nd biggest sport in the UK is probably rugby but I don't think you get it in the states. It's a little like American football. Cricket is fairly popular too.
Out of the American sports I think ice hockey is my fav. I did try and get tickets for American football but they're so damn expensive!
Popularity depends on how you measure it - TV viewing, live viewing at the event, participation.
Events that are on TV get high TV ratings (hardly surprising), so football, rugby, cricket, tennis, motor racing, athletics, etc all score well there. But if you look at participation, then cricket and rugby score quite low, and other sports like golf, cycling, swimming, squash, tennis, etc have higher participation rates than cricket. And then there are sports like snooker and darts that score even higher still, and I don't know if it still is so popular as there has meant to be a decline in number, but fishing always used to be called the number one participation sport. At least lego have given us something there!
I don't know how much it costs to be able to watch Premiership Football games for a year, but I highly suspect it'd be a lot more than £75, and you only get about 400 or so games in a season of Premiership Football...
In terms of televising UK games, it'd probably be like televising second-division football - it simply won't happen, as the quality just isn't there. A shame, but that's the way it is at the moment.
Might as well do a cricket batsman (bat, wickets, helmet, in whites, with printed pads on legs), and later a cricket fielder (perhaps wearing a baggy green cap (re-use the Tam o' Shanter)).
A golf player could use that recoloured too, with awful trousers tucked into socks, come to think of it.
Australia is pretty good with global cartoons and sport. Both Astrix and TinTin are well knowen, at least when I was a kid they were. We have a pretty good national Baseball league, Basketball has had its ups and downs but somewhat popular plus we play football (soccer) pretty well all things considering plus it is our largest participation sport.
Personally I like most sports but am not a hard core follower of any, F1 and MotoGP are up pretty high on my favourites list as is Skiing.
Was a few years ago baseball used to be on Channel 5 late at night
The trailer shown before it is well chosen "Dracula untold".
Took this pic while at Queen Elizabeth Park.
We have Mini Cooper probably for July, wondering what will be in August :)
its my hope, that we will learn more about the star wars UCS set 75060, lots of rumors to a Slave I, but no physical proof yet. and that it might be the August early VIP set.
Someone has already mocked up a set: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=90958
