Lots of new sets to relieve any money that's left ,8wide speedchampions is killing the 6wide fan and nailing the 4wide coffin , I appreciate how better\realistic they look but price is for me not justifiable, hope a price war solved this problem C'mon smyths  vs argos (whoever looses We win)

Harry Potter fans rejoice at new sets ,despair at more sets to acquire, but they look great. Wider seems to be where the vehicles are in LEGO lately ,  today I saw an electric car and seems there is a place for 4-wide still in legoland. I guess online is the only place to get any set now.

76176 marvel -shang chi escape, 30euro- stylish car , 2 motorbikes ,4 minifigs and 2 spring shooters- 1 disk, 1 projectile. As a new release it's mildly high  but it's on my radar when reduced

60293 stuntz 30 euro -it's new- but has new road plate sections ,a spider and the bike with 2 minifigs, the big Rig is what I'm really after but I'd budget for this if it could go under 25

Anyone in the hotelier market? The next modular is a 3 bedroom hotel ,has a triangular shape but with some filling out the already full rooms could be improved on, it's way off my range but as a budding airline boss I'd love to enhance my emerging airline operation with whole package holidays, will I splash on a, IMO, a huge set ,realistically NO

Not that I've ever bought a modular or ever will but it's a nice looking set! I've been keen on doing my own kind of pointy corner building like that some time. But they've kind of ruined that aspect of it by making it only usable on a 90 degree corner - the side with the little art gallery is ugly and looks like it's made to butt up against another modular. Rules out the possibility of a diagonal side street running behind it, kind of defeating the purpose of the building's angular-ness and taking away from its realism. You don't see buildings that shape unless the streets around them dictate it.

Interesting to see the colour of the first floor - apparently light nougat, never used outside of minifig heads before.

Brickset already has a review: https://brickset.com/article/66305/review-10297-boutique-hotel (https://brickset.com/article/66305/review-10297-boutique-hotel)

It needs a serious mod on all levels and a 4th floor as there's 4keys for 3 rooms and toilets are like hens teeth (I know lego doesn't need to go ...but) ,it's 200 price is being moaned on already. At 160 I'd forego any other spending to nab it

Fourth key probably the master key or one for the front door. I think the bathroom looks great and the palm tree design, I think it uses a crown piece?

A great looking ideas set! Numerous globes have been submitted to Lego ideas in the past but this I'm glad they chose this design (although the geography of the original submission left a bit to be desired, which has thankfully been improved upon). Probably a bit pricey for what it is but if I can find anywhere to put it I'll certainly consider it at sale prices...

Looks like crap! A dust nightmare and only shows continent names, is rather an actual globe! And if it fell I'd be going to jail!

Got the smallest Stuntz in agros but can't open till next month(one per month), as the bikes alone are 8 each ,15 is a  mini-deal, my want is the big Rig but even at 48 i need it to be cheaper, I must get the other bike set -22euro ,might have to let actual kids play with them too as the function looks cool

Buzz lightyear but the prices don't buzz me! 50euro for spaceship

Supposedly the director is a classic space fan, and he designed the ship so we'd get some new trans-yellow pieces! https://www.brickfanatics.com/lightyear-director-made-movie-for-new-brick/

Don't know if stuntz will make a 2nd round , I'm liking it but as an "Expand your city" it's a demolition derby arena, and to work would require spectator area and all the sets would make it football stadium size ! I've gotten the smaller ones and opened a bike 60310 -chicken suit guy ,and one push gives serious zoom so x3 could see the need for a garage to add to the arena, depending where you run it too could see missing bits as they do fly off on impacts! Don't let this deter you as they've got more rewarding results than the pull back motors in the technic monster trucks

A city  farm line ,3 sets so far the biggest 50euro is 4+ but had animals and a sheep that has a shearable coat(remove outer like costume minifigs) ,a tractor that'll look more like a ride on lawnmower compared to the recent tractor, a cool enough set albeit 4+

Anyone up for a buildable Groot- 400+ pieces 50ish euro and if you don't build it you can have the splinters version , it looked poorish but I didn't zoom into image as it doesn't interest me

I've nearly the whole Stuntz line ,only got 2 bikes from the individual boxes, and missing the Big Rig (the one I really wanted), got the monster truck -big box set today ,50euro is a great price and my airport ??? will have a monster truck arena ! This theme has great playability for families as it's colours and characters aren't boyish. And the rev up bikes go miles

Browsed the next wave of Stuntz, the super wackiness isn't letting up but it's mostly bikes( great designs and figs) but I'm all stunted with this theme.......unless prices are wacky in my favour!!

Happy Birthday to me, a gift of the bucket loader for me!!! It's a poly bag  so it's tiny, it was 4.50euro so I was happy with the price but it's CRAP! I didn't apply the stickers , as it's not staying as it is ,I'll give it bigger tyres and steering
