(Is this the 2017 Modular thread?)
They could go with a more substantial train but I don't think it would fit the nature of the WV which is predominately play scaled, partial buildings. Of course that didn't stop them with the cottage, so who knows!
But it is also a train and not everyone is into them, so it will be interesting to see how it sells.. if this is a true rumor.
It only ceases to be a true rumour if the facts are known because then it's a fact not a rumour.
In fact, a rumour which is false is more likely to be a true rumour than a rumour which is true - there's a chance that a rumour which is true may actually be a fact and therefore not be a true rumour despite being true.
I'm too scared to MOC any modular buildings because I never know what will come next. You may think a dojo would be safe, but they made a little Karate scene in Friends.....nothing is safe!
I feel like I'm getting dragged into Inception...
A rumour is a rumour. It can subsequently prove to be true or false. If it turns out that it's true, it's still a rumour now - a true rumour - but it's not a fact. You can also have a rumour that's true turn to being one that's false, so definitely not a fact.
I suppose if the person mongering the rumour is not engaging in unsubstantiated speculation, it really never was a rumour...
I think I run mine with 24 straights (inner loop) and 32 straights (outer loop).
The solution? Give a good track-less train to the non-casual LEGO buyers who probably already have track or won't mind buying it and give a re-hashed WV Bakery to the casual buyers.
#4841 and #7597 are good examples of trains without track and this is what I think we will get. Not to mention #10233, #10219, #10194.
I do not consider #10233, #10219, or #10194 as part of this ideal, those were always 'expert' type trains which meant that those likely already had a train set with track before buying on of those (or was also going to buy a train set or track).
If with track it is likely going to be 129.99 USD. Without would probably be around 99.99 USD unless it is really tiny, or like the LEGOLAND promo train (more of a 'ride' than 'train').
I suppose we can all dream...
I'd happily pay 129.99 as suggested above for a decent train rather than 59.99 for a far inferior one. In fact if it's along the lines of the friends rollercoaster style then we wouldn't buy. It needs to be a neat build too
