I thought it might be the roller coaster parts that Adam Tucker (designer behind most of the Architecture sets) is unveiling at the show. I wasn't going to reveal anything but found this on the Brickworld Presentation list, which is public info: I don't think Adam's work is being done in direct connection with TLG though. So if your "this test product" refers to something TLG is announcing, then it may be something else.
Plus he's got to ramp-up the speed on that lift-chain :)
Hopefully Brickset will upload official images soon, but until then, here is a video to keep you occupied:
For those that have seen set reveals at other shows, do they usually leave them up through the weekend? I'll be there tomorrow and I would love to see this in person.
It is impressive.
I have been to the real thing, went to a concert in it, and yes, it does sound very nice. :)
I thought the part count would be a tad higher, but that is ok. Wonder when we'll have something to pass Taj Mahal's 5,922 part count...
Blue 48x48 baseplate! Cool. And all that dark tan and trans black. Looks like some of the 'tinted window' elements are black instead of trans black? That would be a shame, hope it doesn't make them look odd...
However this is just beautiful regardless of the part count.
This year and the next couple of years are going to be very memorable for Lego in terms of the sheer amount of quality sets that are going to be available :)
I just saw some more pics over on fbtb,i'm impressed! And even more i'm surprised that the pricing seems rather "fair"this time ($vs.£vs.€)!
Anything beyond that would be riddled with expletives.
BTW, I showed the video to my wife tonight, she actually wasn't all that impressed, but then she grew up with the real thing. She thought it looks "off" just a bit, too tall and not wide enough. It needs more of a "base" all the way around it.
Of course, if they make it more than 48 studs wide, many people can't display it, same reason SSD is a foot or two too short.
However I'm slightly disappointed that it only has 3000 pieces for £250, although it seems a lot of them are larger pieces than in Tower Bridge.
Plus, where on earth would I put it?! 64x39cm is large!
I'll still end up getting it, but maybe I'll wait a little while for it to get reduced to under £200...
