News round-up

Passage of Jun-Chi

Here's a round-up of news and site updates that don't really warrant separate articles:

- There's a strange entry at Amazon.cn which translates to 4207 Car Park. Mah4546 who told us about this wonders whether it's '6394 Metro Park and Service Tower re-imagined' as a result of LEGO's recent request for ideas for sets to re-release (more info in the forum). It certainly comes in a big box: 58x37cm.

- The LOTR microsite is now live at LEGO.com, featuring character bios (thanks Rockman Xtreme)

- I've updated the wallpaper repository with the latest ones at LEGO.com, including HERO Factory, Collectable minifigs series 4 and 5, and Technic 2011. It seems to me that LEGO is not issuing so many wallpapers these days. Many of the themes don't have any (e.g. Ninjago), or they haven't been updated for years (e.g. Star Wars). If you know of some I haven't added yet, please let me know.

- I've replaced nearly all the images of the Orient Expedition sets with new scans provided by WilliamH which means they are now a consistent size and quality. William sent them to me months ago, but I'd forgotten all about them until now!

The Chinese Amazon link has been taken down. Curiouser and curiouser.

Thanks for the new scans of Orient expedition. It was my favourite theme in its time. Too bad we will not gonna hear about Johny Thunder anymore :-(.

Wow, a new parking garage would be awesome for my city! I have the old one, and it's way too small for the newer vehicles, and not easily altered to accomodate them. I could use one for my airport, my modular "downtown" area...

For me it translates to "LEGO City LEGO Group city garage 4207" instead of "4207 car park"

Cool, new orient photos. I guess... I was only a baby when they came out so I don't know too much 'bout it.

NEW WALLPAPERS! I do love me some good lego wallpapers!

I sent the message about the LOTR microsite, so not all the news is new for me, XD

@Huw - FYI, Ninjago does have some wallpapers. They can be found on http://ninjago.lego.com/en-us/world/characters/default.aspx - view each character to get their wallpaper - Not that I'm into Ninjago mind you.... but I just happened to follow a link in an email and I noticed the wallpapers while browsing the site.

A new parking garage? Well, the original one was brilliant (my cousins got it when they were kids, I was so jealous. Although I had the awesome police station).

So that could be lovely.

About wallpapers from the Aquaraiders (2007) theme. Lego gave eight wallpaper rewards in the game "Treasure Trench". I never managed to get the last one for "All animal combinations"... I see that you didn't get that one either!

You should add a The Lord of the Rings wallpaper collection, although there aren't that many out yet. But I've saved just about every image released so far (except for some Toy Fair ones) so if you needed some I could send them.
