City 2018

Recommended Posts

The farm theme needs to be re-visited, along with a city zoo theme. 


$299 zoo
$29-$119 different enclosures
Even easy to do hot dog stands, different animals in polybags, other vendors

Zoo would do amazing. Every city would have a zoo area waiting for every new set. Collectors would demand to have EVERY animal/set

What makes rehashing themes OK is that new kids are born every year. ;)

As are naive resellers.

It´s been a while since we had a CITY steamroller too so be careful what you wish for.

So presumably there is going to be a rehash / continuance of a CITY Arctic theme given the picture below (Discover a new City theme on 25.05.2018). It could be cool, but still another remake.. As "uneasy" it is for LEGO designers to come up with something fresh, I tried myself to "fit into their shoes" and just from the top of my head I came to the alternate possibles below - HOSPITAL THEME not mentioning.. 

municipal services (waste disposal, gardening, public care - hairsaloon, various boutiques selling fashion, music instruments, grocery etc), highway & similiar construction crew, commercial vessels + harbor + handling the cargo (cranes etc), forrest harvesting and milling saw facilities, scientifics ;division" - explorers, artefacts + museum / exhibition facilities .. and Film studios scenarios.. oh this could be a gold mine! Imagine they could cash out any possible license they own with an individual set.. 

Set numbers, names and prices:

60190 Arctic Hovercraft - 4.99€
60191 Arctic Explorers - 9.99€
60192 Arctic Vehicle - 19.99€
60193 Arctic Helicopter - 34.99€
60194 Arctic Track Vehicle - 49.99€
60195 Arctic Mobile Centre - 99.99€

So here is some news. The Artic theme is different! According to the brick show, the Artic theme goes Prehistoric!

60193 has a Sabre tooth tiger stuck in ice, 60195 has a Wooly Mammoth!

That's some inflation on the trains, better be a damn impressive cargo train.

So that means the current trains will  retire this year bang on 4 year schedule. Key point is no new station apart from xmas one.

Probably because resellers are buying all the stations?

60050 (boxed) is still available as part of the 66493 Cargo Train Super Pack - which is also great to part out, especially when I bought a load from John Lewis at £128 each.

60051 may struggle as it's been heavily discounted all along and I don't think it's as good as 7938 was, RRP may not be reached after fees.

There are now two helicopters instead of one. :)

I talk smack about the inflated amount of Helicopters all the time. As of before this announcement, there were already 14 sets for 2018 with a helicopter element.

However, yesterday I just so happened to buy the Building Better Thinking box that includes the Chopper build. SMH.

I still can't part with my last one.

I reckon there is still a store exclusive set to be revealed. Typically a second helicopter.

I was looking for the prices of recently sold CITY sets on ebay.co.uk and found this.. do you think that the price is substential or waay too much overpriced and it was some very "fanatic" collector who bought it?
