    Instructions weren't handed out, you had to build it at the show. But they then released them a couple of days later after loads of requests.

    ^^ They're rims from the speed champions series. They come in different colours, this seems to be the flat silver or whatever the name is variant :) They also come in different styles, so beware what you're buying.

    They are Speed Champions wheel trims! Available in the three Porsche sets they've done. 918, 911 finish line and 919/917 pitstop. All the sets come with two different sets of 4 per car.

    Very clever part use. I was chatting to the guys from BrightBricks at the show and thought I recognised the piece, but had to double check.

    Thanks for all the responses, just placed a Bricklink order to make a two carriage train.
    I completely disregarded the exact part as it was listed as wheel, cover.

    As Englands largest surviving medieval cathedral, York Minster would make for quite a build.  Back in the 1960s British LEGO Ltd. made glued display copies of its' facade and western towers for British retailers to display in their shop windows.  

    Even though this scale is much to large for translating into a full sized cathedral... it's an interesting part of LEGO history.

    And the number of Bricksetters ordering that model of St. Edmondsbury Cathedral has made them put up the following notice:
    PLEASE NOTE Due to the very high demand for these models we will be closing orders from noon GMT on 15 December to allow us time to pack and despatch existing orders.

    Ordering window will open again in January. Glad I ordered mine early this morning :)

    My (small) model of St Edmundsbury Cathedral has now arrived. Word of caution for anybody planning to order when it will be possible to do so again in January: my box was shipped in a large bubble-wrap envelope. Not exactly a good way to ensure it will arrive in pristine condition...

    So might be safer to pick it up a the cathedral shop yourself/find somebody who can do so for you.

    That's an actual lego set. #10177 I picked one up a couple of months back for £115. So it's very over priced

    Dirk Denoyelle, LEGO Certified Professional and creator of that Paris Hilton set, has created a set to celebrate 200 years of the Antwerp fire service.

    Not quite as special as some other LCP sets, but still a rather nice fire truck.





    (No better pictures of the box available for the moment.)

    EUR 50, but the order page is unfortunately only open to Belgian and Dutch residents.

    @sid3windr The Paris Hilton Hotel ;)

    Already posted elsewhere on the forum, but reposting here for completeness:

    TLG teamed up with LCP's in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan for a Cities of Wonders campaign:

    Malaysian Heritage mini-builds by Singapore’s LCP Nicholas Foo (more pictures on Brickfinder):



    Singapore Food Culture mini-builds, also by Nicholas Foo (more pictures on Brickfinder here):



    Hong Kong Landmarks mini-builds, by Hong Kong’s LCP Andy Hung (more pictures on Brickfinder here):



    I couldn't find any pictures from the Taiwan sets yet, but I'm sure Brickfinder will post those once available. They are also gradually posting the instructions for these sets.

    These sets are GWP in Lego Certified Stores/TRU/designated store in those countries over the month of June.

    In my inbox today: Amazings - who did a set resembling a Mercedes-Benz Atego fire engine commemorating 200 year Antwerp Fire Service commemorative set  - put up another set for pre-order

    This time, it's an oldtimer set with an early-1900 steam car pump:



    Price is 50 € (+ shipping) again. Available for preorder until 28 October.

    httppluginmyshopcomimagesshop5703400picturesfoto-doosjpg


    I really liked the printed pieces in the previous set as I could "localize" our City fire sets with them but I'm not too sure about this set. Does have a cake and a red bucket though!

    Likely filtering on IP again as was the case with the original set :/

    Guessing they only want to deal with local (Belgium/Netherlands) shipping. Would you be interested? 
  • stluxstlux LuxembourgMember Posts: 2,140
    New set from Dirk Denoyelle's Amazings team:



    To celebrate the addition of a plateosaurus skeleton to the Museum of Natural Sciences in Brussels. An online reservation for this EUR 50 set with 282 bricks is required, and only available for pickup at the museum on Sunday 17 December. Seems like the Amazings team will do a dinosaur themed event at the museum that day.

    More information here.

    This should be helpful for those that don’t know: Tom Alphin is doing an article on “amazing unofficial architecture sets” and included this information:

    This list was inspired by a much longer list containing all known LEGO Certified Professional sets which you can see at http://minifigpriceguide.com.

    This could be helpful in getting a fully complete list. 

    @henrysunset Thanks!

    In case anybody had already made plans to go to Paris to pick up one of those Renault sets: the date has changed from Saturday 09 Dec to Saturday 16 Dec.
    The Champs Élysées will be rather occupied by ceremonies for Johnny Hallyday, hence the change.

    There have to have been countless sets that have been packaged for various purposes through the years, which would indeed make a comprehensive list near impossible.  Here’s one you’d never know about if you weren’t from our city (and I’ve never bought one):

    Nice, but not a LCP set. Seems the creator makes commissions in Lego as a part-time job, but is not a recognised LCP.

    Here's another one for the list. :)

    A couple of weeks ago I was at the AWS re:Invent 2017 conference in Las Vegas. It's a big annual gathering of geeks, nerds, and associated salespeople all interested in Amazon Web Services. I think this year there were about 45,000 attendees.

    Adam Reed Tucker had designed a model of the AWS robot (Yes, that's a sticker on the front, included in the set) which Amazon was giving away. There weren't many - I was told there was only 200 of them. They went fast.

    In addition, Adam himself was there building a life size version of the robot on the expo floor. I've also included some pictures, though I didn't get a chance to see the finished one.

    This picture actually brings up something that I wish got talked about more:  How builders support large models by incorporating metal support structures.  Like, how much do they engineer them, how do they know they will need on vs if they won't, how do they build them, how do they tie them in to the models, how do they keep too much strain from being placed on the LEGO pieces that are contacting the supports, etc. 

    I don't think I would probably ever be able to utilize any of that knowledge, but it would be a really neat thing to go into depth about.  Honestly, I guess that's true of the entire large model designing/building experience.  I mean, I've seen quite a few interviews where people talk to large model designer/builders, but they are usually very superficial and don't get down to the really interesting bits that, as a LEGO nerd, are what I REALLY want to know!

    I reached out to Ben Stephenson yesterday, and learned that he only designed the larger of the two kits.  It makes sense that the two kits are quite different, since they were designed by different LEGO artists.

    I've updated my guide to reflect this info:

    Great write up Tom!  Neat to see how many different buildings all over the world have been immortalized in LEGO, far beyond just the official Architecture range, which really still is my favorite.  After all, it was finding a Seattle Space Needle model in the gift shop, which really got me looking into what modern LEGO is all about, and it’s those Architecture models on display that really catch the eyes of people who can’t believe this is that “children’s toy”. :D

    Here's an "interesting" build from my LEGO friend Micke in Sweden...  a LEGO Certified Professional (Bright Bricks) set where a laser printer is built as a building (14+ age)... for "Brother Printers" in Sweden...






    Not an exciting build... but interesting.... ;-)
