60097 - City Square

Recommended Posts

So would we agree there is no point in investing in 60026?

 

Um, yes, this. ;-)

 

Hard to tell without seeing pictures yet, but this sounds like it could be a companion vs a competitor to 60026 perhaps.

By the way, is there a chance to get somewhere such a nice support with 'LEGO CITY' on it?

Are you looking for a place with displays of new CITY sets? I think those photos are from the Nuremberg Toy Fair.

I mentioned the bottom street UNDER the set - I would be happy to have some of them.

For this suggested retail price I hope it's included.

If not, I think this set wil not do well, as it's too expensive for a city set.

Wow! 

 

Forget about Town Square!

 

This I will buy right away... awesome. 

 

Though I think the baseplates are not included. Unfortunately.

Yes, I often see cars being towed in front of a LEGO Store.

 

When are we getting a LEGO roundabout? 

 

They can't afford to pay for parking, gas, or repairs after buying LEGO.

Ah ok, sorry for misunderstanding. LEGO calls these things playmats, 850929 for example. There were others but I don't think they are still in production. No idea though whether this particular one will be sold as well or just used for promo displays.

Looks like I'll be selling our 8404 to pay for this.  I really don't see this as a competitor to 60026, but a companion.  City builders will like these to add buildings to their town.  I know I will.

I always liked the bus in 8404.

It looks like not a ton of overlap between the two, so very complementary. I think these two plus a couple toy shops and bike shops would make a sweet non-modular layout.

 

Will this hurt the value of the lego grand opening sets? I've looked at them before but they were always a bit pricey to me and I couldn't justify the buy in - getting a Lego storefront solves that need for me.

Is it just me, or does the "1932" brick/tile on the front seem out of place?? Especially with the big AC condenser on the roof..

I think the knight used is out of place compared to the updated Futuron guy beside him. LEGO should have picked a design more 'classic' of knighthood like a forestman over the same guys from a year ago.
