Exactly how does one 'Steer' a train, even with a remote control?

I think that there saying, "get it on to the right track".
Im guessing that it will be $150 US.

YES! I never thought they were going to make a new cargo train! This one's the best one yet!

The £132 seems accurate because it is a few quid more than the current cargo train with about the same amount of pieces. I'll probably be waiting for a sale to get this one but with the my limited space, it might be a while till it gets used.

Why is this cheaper than the cargo train 7939?

By in Canada,

If I can get it, this will be great to run my Maersk Train, because of all the track and the PF. So, when it comes to Canada, PLEASE be less than $200!!!!!!

@rainstorm26: No switches, and I am guessing less parts, or cheaper parts used by Lego. The 7939 has the green large stanchions for the green overhead gantry and switches, the new set does not have these things, plus no extra vehicles like a semi or anything like that

Over all I am thinking that the 7939 value in the secondary market will go up... I mean while this train is cheaper, it is kinda 'meh' nothing great about it, except a change to show off the new conveyor I guess.... and a lot more stuff in the 7939 set.

Il wait for BOGO sales at TRU before buying these....

It's 149.99 Euros on S@H here in Europe. Maybe cheaper than 7939 but a LOT less sexy too IMO.
Anyway, as other addicted, I know I can't help buying it ...

The Yellow Cargo train looks much better to me IMO. This one may be cheaper, but there's nothing special about it.

By in United States,

you can really order it over the phone at TRU? Can you get it now?

Gravatar
By in United States,

@railroad18764: it is currently out of stock for shipping. You can try your local TRU though.

Gravatar
By in United States,

WOW...IMO=In My Opinion...Either its out of stock or someone made a mistake at TRU and let it out early and they are now holding it back probably until the BOGO is over. I ordered mine by phone about 9:30am CST and I'd say by the afternoon it was out of stock for shipping on the TRU website.

Thankyou starfire2, so i could pick it up tomorrow at TRU?

Gravatar
By in United States,

If they have it. Sometimes TRU puts new Lego's up on it's site a week or 2 before the stores.

So weird! 1 year after 7939's release and they released another. I think they both are good and 3677 could be aimed at low budget consumers with only 149 Euros come on! It's no less than 7939. I looked at lego.com for region: Germany and it appered. Turn the paged to USA and: "Sorry This Item Is Not Avaible In The Following Country: USA"
German page for 3677: http://shop.lego.com/ByTheme/Product.aspx?p=3677&cn=746&d=9
US page: http://shop.lego.com/ByTheme/Product.aspx?p=3677&cn=746&d=9\
They both look similar. Or Just open the German one and change the region to USA in lego.com
