I’m jealous! I haven’t had much luck tracking one down yet- enjoy the build!
Very lucky. Searched for it on Facebook this morning, saw one available a few miles down the road, offered him half of what he was asking and 10 minutes later, told my wife, “I’m going out.”
I love Me. Me likes Me. Me the best. Me so happy!! :)
It does look a great set. I'll probably bricklink one for next year minus the 40.
Scanning the QR codes in the instructions, the short designer videos show that the set was actually put together by 4 people each creating 1 of the modules. (Robert Heim, Lee Magpili, Léon Pijnenburg and Carl Merriam)
@The_Rancor You get a good view of the functions in this video.
Apparently an employee gift for Schur (a packaging company) employees?
Still happy for those who get this though :)
Originally SCHUR did printing and lithography, which is how TLG had BRDR. SCHUR printing many of the LEGO catalogs in the 1950s and beyond. By 1958 BRDR. SCHUR bought the printing and lithography company of HAGEN & SIEVERTSEN... so that starting in 1958 LEGO catalogs displayed the name "BRDR. SCHUR HAGEN & SIEVERTSEN" in Horsens.
Here is a close up of the printing of a 1962 Swiss LEGO catalog showing the printers name in small letters....
At some later point (probably starting in the 1970s) SCHUR changed its' name back to just SCHUR, and bought up other companies, and started producing packaging machines, of which I am sure TLG has purchased many machines from them over the years to handle LEGO box packaging.
So TLG and SCHUR have a business relationship that goes back nearly 70 years.
More recently, I’ve been trying to open and build as I get them, to prevent this dilemma in the future. Not quite keeping up, but certainly doing better than I was.
Happy Christmas. :)
Anybody got a mostly complete Grand Emporium??
One thing that might be fun, especially this time of year, would be to put more emphasis on the window decorations--maybe mini-versions of the 2020 Employee Gift set? (How's that for getting back to topic?)
