more Friends for you this i think is what you was looking for.
and a little Disney.
Definitely going to need to see more of Belle's Castle... managed to resist the Frozen sets, but B&B is so much more nostalgic for me.
And really thrilled about the new Mixels. I have then all up to now, they're just goofy and fun stress-relief builds... but the tribes were getting old. Loving how the Castle, Pirate, Ninja tribes and the Law Enforcement, Fire Department, Road Department (? I feel like I see dumpster, street sweeper, shovels...) tribes all play off each other. Then there's a band tribe, looks like a TV tribe, and of course, the healthcare tribe... all looking so awesome. I might be alone in my Mixel love, but I don't care! :D
Really really glad to get a proper look at Beauty and the Beast. I think the characters look fab, even Beast which must have been so difficult. Belle's dress looks brilliant and so does that new hairpiece, and Cogsworth, Lumière and Wardrobe are fantastic! Cogsworth especially is spot on. Can't really see close enough for the detail on Chip and Mrs Potts. I guess my cryptic note of "lavender" for the castle walls was right but I just couldn't remember! The castle is nothing spesh though it has a few nice details. It's all about the characters on this one.
it may be exclusive to some toy shop and there for not on display.
also i had no idea about there even being a bumper cars set.
nice stuff in nexo knights too, I'm surprised I like the 2 bigs 6 wheeled vehicles and the castle looks big and unique.
Not sure on ninjago, the dragon looks unique, but I'm not sure how much I like it. Displaying the tower open doesn't do it justice, it seems to look way better on the box artwork.
don't really care about the rest, except maybe the RV. the fact that it rebuilds into totally different models is a bonus.
oh yeah, though I usually don't care much about minecraft, the fortress is seriously underwhelming. the walls are like 4 bricks high? too bad because it's got an interesting style otherwise.
Makes me worried about a minidoll making its first appearance in the CMF line...
Seeing the photos of the volcano sets was a rollercoaster (sorry) of emotion - first, "WHOA! I NEED THAT!" swiftly followed by, "Oh, so that's just a display volcano and the one you actually get is... well." At least my bank balance will thank me for skipping that set! And I kind of want to try building a more impressive one myself...
The Bucket Wheel Excavator is a huge ugly-beautiful monster and I want it fiercely.
Nice-looking Creator sets, too - was disappointed that the lighthouse isn't bigger, but then it'd just be a copy of the one I didn't have the sense to buy when it came out. Hopefully I can get both it and the moose lodge.
The display volcano they had built from basic bricks as a backdrop makes for a good display, but not a good toy. Building a thing like that would be extremely repetitive, and once you have it built it would just be heavy and awkward. The one built from mountain bricks is not flawless, but I'm glad they found a way to include a whole volcanic crater at all and not just a small lava floe to suggest a volcanic setting.
As expected, the sets I'm most excited for are the Ninjago, Elves, and Nexo Knights sets. The Bionicle sets have some nifty techniques but Umarak the Destroyer is the only one that really "wows" me in the summer wave. In general I'm more drawn to heroes than villains, and I'm not sure what to make of the new Ekimu. I am VERY excited for the upcoming Bionicle Netflix series, though!
Ninjago is doing noooothing for me this time. And Nexo Knights, I only want Axl's Tower Carrier.
Ill get the Lava and Storm beasts from Bionicle, and omigosh I need the Technic Porsche!
also dont forget the ninjago "Lighthouse Siege" #70594
@LostInTranslation there was a lighthouse in the latest fire fighters sets... It's a rather small one though, but it is one! Don't forget the Whitecap Bay from PotC!
Thanks guys. 70594 doesn't really look like a lighthouse to me, so won't get included.
I'm really glad to see so many people loving the City Park set as much as me. I just hope it sells well because Lego won't keep producing minifigure packs unless we vote with our wallets!
there is also a lighthouse set in town/system from 1995.
also there is the item number for PotC Whitecap bay from 2011.
more then i can not bring my self to pay that high.
hmm i can see it as a lighthouse. it has a light at the top! :) a real light to :)
if you look at the displa model it dont look like one, if you look at the Box art it do.
it open's and the display is opened up so that is why.
there actually was a paradisa lighthouse!!! am i dreaming ?
Having said that, it will be less than that at retail, I would scoop it up at 1/3 off. I'm excited about it because we will get to see the baby and wheelchair etc. turning up in the other city sets from this time next year (I guess), which is awesome!
While we're discussing lighthouses don't forget Pirates of the Caribbean Whitecap Bay #4194! It's sort of a lighthouse.
£34.99. is on the high side.
as it is, if i see it for under £25 i may pick it up.
it will be on my watch list.
(I've played minifigure-minifigure before)
And to @LostInTranslation - don't get me wrong, it's a fantastic set, but I have too much population for my modular street as it is, there is stuff I want in there but too much would be left in the packet to make it worth it at full price.
Maybe I just get more excited than others about new torso prints and hairpieces than some of you guys, but I will certainly be buying this - maybe even day one - and then multiples if it does get reduced.
@Capnrex101 - I too have two of that set for the minifigure elements. When you look at other City sets and CMFs you actually don't find many regular "everyday" non-uniform outfits for civilians to wear.
#10686 is actually a good comparison, already one of those unique torso prints has been used for the Brick Bank, I would expect the others to show up in other sets eventually too. Whereas CMF prints tend to stay unique to that figure, some of them might be generic or have very similar prints elsewhere, but its still unique parts.
I think there are too many parts for a wheelchair in a CMF, but that it will show up in other places. I also think a hospital City subtheme next year is pretty likely - as I commented on a news article that's been deleted, the last ambulance and medical centre was in 2012, so 5 years gap by next year.
I see what you're saying about the park minifigure parts popping up in other sets, but personally I'm happy to get a single set with a good selection. I was specifically told at the toy fair that this set was in response to customer feedback but that there was a bit of concern about how the set would sell, compared to a build-based set of the same price/ box size. Hence my hopes that all the people who requested this kind of set actually buy it or we probably won't see its like again.
