Road and river tapes

CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 18,448
I've just seen these have been added to the catalogue.


It's an interesting idea. Although I'm not sure I'd let my kids stick them to our floors. I suppose this marks the end of road baseplates and so on.

    I hope not.  If there is anything AFOLs dislike, it's stickers.  

    I like my roadplates!

    I find it way too small. Aren't most LEGO City vehicles huge nowadays? What kid is going to want to accept that tape as a substitute for road plates when their giant LEGO cars dwarf the roads? I guess in a city of nothing but scooters and bikes, this would be cute. Otherwise, it seems a little weak.

    Reminds me of when I was a kid and I used masking tape as roads for my Hot Wheels cars.

    It's a neat idea, but the road is definitely too narrow. Maybe it's meant to be only a bike path?

    The road tape is for the 4wide fans! Also I'm a little worried about speeding, its just one long straight, you can see somebody hasn't noticed the crossing until its almost too late!

    And they leave those skid marks at every crossing. They clearly do not learn.

    That's really depressing - that's making the impression to kids that that's the norm.

    Those would only be skid marks in countries where you drive on the left side of the road. Anywhere else that's rubber laid down from burnouts done to impress the pedestrians.

    Yep, clearly British.

    In which case, I'm not surprised so many cars are having to slam on the brakes approaching a zebra crossing when the speed limit is signed as 50mph. Rather fast for a town, if you ask me...

    If we've established it is Britain, then I'm waiting for the pavement tape with dog crap every 10cm or so.

    Is it white crap? 1970s style!

    If kids took their real life driving cues from toys, I'd be driving race cars around loops, through dinosaur mouths, and off of cliffs into sand pits. I think you're being a tad overly dramatic.

    I just find it odd that you would only be able to drive in a long straight line. How do you go round a corner?!

    It's a by-product of having a city full of cars with no steering. ;)

    They do show T-junctions in the official images. They didn't even overlap to get rid of the green / grass. It also shows the skids are not too repetitive. I just hope the tape comes off that nice floor.

    We have very similar tape from Tiger. That tape comes off anything very cleanly, even after being stuck on for six months or more. I definitely wouldn't worry about wooden or laminate floors!

    The way those skid marks are placed does make it look as if the driver had to swerve to avoid an encroaching tree!

    What, no curves in the roads? Can't be British roads then, must be American!
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,430
    You don't need curves to put in front of a row of modulars.

    I also don't need too-narrow roads with green borders.

    (Please don't discontinue roadplates!)

    @Paperballpark it could be Milton Keynes. If we add some roundabouts.
