    Forum member dr_spock has made a LEGO creation based on the articulated railcar made by Stadler of Switzerland.

    GTW (Gelenktriebwagen) which means articulated railcar is made by Stadler of Switzerland. The notable feature is a power module in the middle connecting the two passenger cars. The design reminds me very much of the LEGO monorail sets like the Airport Shuttle. I wonder if the designers at Stadler were inspired by LEGO monorail. I chose the German DB colour scheme which looks similar to the LEGO airport shuttle colours.

    After about a week of teaser images and videos, early in the wee hours this morning (at least for those of us in North America) a new post was published on the LEGO Ideas blog featuring the full video unveiling of LEGO Ideas set #007, 21109 “Exo-Suit”:

    Featuring a female and male astronaut, each in green spacesuits (for the first time ever) as well as one of Peter Reid’s signature M364 “Turtle” robots in addition to the Exo-Suit itself, this is the first-ever LEGO Ideas set produced that is completely free of intellectual property. All other sets that have previously been produced are based on either real-world scientific exploration craft, a video game or a movie.

    No other details are yet available, but speculation is that the price will be $34.99/£29.99. Brickset also has an image taken from the revised instructions for 21108 “Ghostbusters” that inadvertently revealed the design.

    A year ago, when we first got a glimpse of the first-ever image of a set based on the forthcoming “The LEGO Movie”, the collective AFOL community stood with jaws unhinged, thinking “What in the heck could this movie possibly be about???” and also “That set looks awesome!!!”

    Well, in the intervening months, The LEGO Movie may have come and gone from theaters and then been released on DVD, but the related tie-in LEGO sets are still readily available on store shelves as well as on LEGO Shop@Home. One of the sets we’ve yet to review is actually the one that accompanied the initial press release, what we came to know as 70808 “Super Cycle Chase”. It really was a perfect introduction to the movie, featuring the two main characters in a crazy, obviously cobbled-together, enormous motorcycle and an over-sized, militarized police truck driven by robots!
