Same! I will not get my hopes up.
I hope it appeals to me, the only other train from LEGO that I would love to own is #10194 - Emerald Night.
I'll see myself out.
Choo Choooo! :o)
Having said that, I would be very excited if they actually make a great Christmas train.
NEVER PAY OVER MSRP !
I just hope beyond hope that it isn't like the Ghost Train.
Having only a couple of LEGO locos, and those being #40138 and a very old #133: Locomotive, I'd definitely look at getting one but, given the theme, it does need to cater for the less-hardcore train fan, but the option of PF would be well worthwhile.
My guess is it will be somewhat like the last one, but at the same time it cannot be identical I think due to the PF, whereas the old one only required a 9V motor to be added. (plus the white train windows are long out of production)
1) No PF (I can live with this, even more so if it's designed for adding later)
2) No track (I'm totally fine with this, but that would likely kill the general marketability)
3) It doesn't even run on track (like the Ghost Train - please no no no)
The price point has to be $100 minimum. I fear how miserable a Lego train under that would look like.
I guess the bottom line is that I would much rather pay more for something that has more functionality and aesthetics than to get something that is cut back in order to keep it under a certain price point, like #10245. That set had so much potential but fell a little short. Dont get me wrong, I like the set since I bought two (I had to have 8 raindeer ;) ) but it really should have been bigger.
The key part for our train we made is that there is a track for it. i agree with your 2nd for that reason. Having a train on the track makes such a big difference.
Honestly, I would like a separate pack to such a set. The separate pack would contain power functions and not to implement it. I really want a Christmas ain't that can run around the base of my tree. I have been to try to making that modification to the one we made, but now I will wait to see what happens with this rumor.
ETA: If this was a very nicely done set, I would be willing to pay $150-$200. If it was that much and not well done, I would probably have to pass on it.
I didn't particularly care for the Horizon Express, so another streamline passenger train isn't appealing to me. A new diesel would be nice - but I worry that prior lackluster sales may result in NO Creator Train...
