71044 - Disney Train and Station

My favorite part is the TRACK moving around with the train.

I had this same problem with a City train from a couple years ago.  When it gets going fast enough, and the track isn't secured to anything (say a baseplate), it starts to move.  That's probably why the "Great LEGO Train Accident of 2016" happened at my house, and probably why I haven't rebuilt that train again.

Bad parts:
Devastated to see what looks to be like 40 stickers.
Why they didn't form a connection between the building and track is beyond me, very awkward!
No remote control?? Seriously Lego???? You have got to be kidding!
That is inexcusable IMO.

Bluetooth remote.  It's the new Power Functions.  At the end of the video, you can see the other apps that are controlled with that app - the Batman RC car, and the 2019 Trains.

Yeah I saw it was being controlled with the app. Meaning they didn't include the Bluetooth remote that they make. Price just went up another $25 !! . Dumb movie by Lego, just charge the $350 and include the remote. Further Insulting us by giving it away in cheaper train sets. 633ca27098ebae6569ba1b71afe0dc70.jpgf009b8e57128075404575d59f082791e.jpg

Ah. I didn’t even realize there was a remote. I prefer the app for this, because if the extra sound effects included for this set in the app.

My local amusement park Adventureland has an "A-Train" ride and this Disney train set reminds me a lot of this train.  It brings back fond memories of riding this as a kid.  I particularly like the car with the blue and white awning.

They're giving you the option of not having to buy an extra remote, because you don't need to.

I could see being mad you're forced to buy one, but not that they've given us the option.

That's a really good thing, that's customer choice,

Right. If folks already don't have the 2.0 cargo or high-speed trains then why complain about this. Multiple trains on a pair of sticks!

Frustrated with quality control on my copy of the set I received.  Only on bag 1 and I've got a broken piece and a marred piece.  One of the smaller bags was also sealed to the perimeter of the bigger bag.  Which isn't a problem exactly but just signs of quality control.  The broken pieces though are frustrating since this is $329.  I'll write Lego I know they're good about replacements.

What factory did it come from?

How do I find that out?  Is there a code on the box or the bags?

I'm guessing Mexico.  The seals show 30R9 and the inside flap is in Spanish: Mayo 2019 #28419 / 1 with no English equivalent noted.

I am quite surprised at the broken piece.  It takes quite a bit of force to tear abs like that.

I have no doubt calling TLG would rectify the problem.

This was my first experience.  They have a pretty streamlined process online: enter set number, find piece, enter qty, enter contact info, submit.  Should be here 7 - 10 days they say. Luckily the pieces are external to the build so I was able to continue the build process and replacement will be easy.  I think when that small inner bag got close enough to be heat sealed into the bigger/main bag these two pieces must've gotten too close to some rollers on the machinery.  How exactly I have no idea, I've seen the "how its made" video on Lego and also the Brickumentary, I don't recall seeing the bagging process.  Well, anyway I call this a fluke.
