    Are there little tiny trains running around the interior?

    You know, I never thought of doing that. When I saw the new scissors element in the new sets being released; I was hoping a Barbershop was in the works :)

    I never got round to building the charity Barbershop LDD I bought from @rancorbait‌... Wonder if i need two barbershops... Certain I need another corner, so this gets tricky...

    That would not surprise me... The November calendars says on the 11/21 slot to follow on facebook to see the latest exclusive... So if they are showing next week online, makes sense that they can now show in stores...and with exclusive lego VIP offers starting that weekend, it is good advertisement of an upcoming set,

    Today at my local store, they let me hold the box for a few seconds...

    ... and I was so excited I can barely remember any of it now. Just that it was a two-part building, the left side had lots of masonry bricks in Medium Dark Flesh, and the right one a shop sign that spelled "AL'S" in blue on white using the same technique as in the Pet Shop. In the middle a vertical sign was mounted orthogonally that spelled "Pool" using Tiles, Round 2 x 2 with Hole in Red.

    Oh, and we'll finally be getting minifig scissors! No more hat feathers masquerading as scissors, actual scissors. One pair was mounted right next to the "AL'S" sign, and another pair a minifig was holding.

    I was guessing it may be but is DeA then going to be a preview at the pre BF event?

    I'm really surprised pics haven't leaked yet if these are already showing up at brand stores.

    I have never heard that word either. And I know a lot of words. :-)

    @madforLEGO Yes it is. The brand stores already have their copies in so they can be built ready for the VIP event. I've been led to believe that they have to be off the shop floor by 9am general public admission though.

    I really enjoy the masonry bricks, and when I first saw some rumour about a possible "Detective Agency", I got a image of a facade with those bricks. But, my image was more in Dark Red or Dark Nougat (Dark Flesh). But, if the new building have at least "corner bricks" in masonry profile, I will be most pleased anyway!

    The new Pirate line as 1x2 Dark Red Masonry brick, so it will be available.

    Yes, I saw that. And that is a nice addition, together with the new in sand green (but, I am not sure what to use them for still...)
    Please TLG, now with the masonry brick coming in new colours, consider also dark flesh!

    I've been sent a picture of it from someone in Germany but I'm not sure whether to post. LEGO get upset if exclusives are revealed before they are ready :)

    oh please do, we already feel cheated that it wasn't presented in early October, and by now the suspense is killing us all, and these teases aren't helping :P

    Do any of you honestly think he's going to provide you with the link or images? All you managed to do is inflate this thread the past couple hours and make me think the pics were posted. Big teases.

    Honestly, @Huw posting that he has the picture but doesn't know if he's going to share is in similar bad taste to people in other threads that post that they've found a great deal on X and not saying how or where, which other people including the forum mods/regulars have complained about. So if you want to blame anyone for causing the thread to get bumped and having you think there is real info posted then blame him. You know this crowd well enough that a teaser post like that is going to generate chatter and it is no ones fault but the teaser.

    @graphite, Huw is just having some fun. I'm the oldest of nine kids and I know how fun it can be to torture and tease your younger siblings. It's kind of like that, I would say. :D

    And to @Huw, the images have no watermarks so I don't see why they couldn't be shared. LEGO may not like them, but there is nothing really they could do. The cat is already out of the bag, and if you don't share them someone else will...(c;

    You guys are being overly sensitive about a Lego set. R-E-L-A-X.
  • T_LarsT_Lars USAMember Posts: 104
    ^Frankie says show us the set!
  • magpie9magpie9 Member Posts: 11
    Don't post it Huw. You clearly have a good working relationship with Lego and shouldn't risk that. Large and special sets like this should be released with the appropriate fanfare and not spoiled by people leaking pictures.
