LEGO City Crooks Hideout (60278) Officially Cancelled

At the beginning of the year, some building instructions revealed a new LEGO City Crooks Hideout (60278). There has been absolutely no information about it and it didn’t even release when we expected it but there is now an explanation for that. The reason is that the set has been officially cancelled due to LEGO not feeling that it is keeping with brand values.

With LEGO City, we always aim to represent the reality of the world in a way that is fun, positive and appropriate for kids. With this in mind, we have decided not to launch this product as we no longer feel it is in keeping with the values of the LEGO City brand.

LEGO City Design Team Explains New Road Plates (60304) Implementation

The new LEGO City Road Plates (60304) are now available and fans have been getting their first-hand look at them but not without some reluctance to switching from the traditional road plates. The LEGO City Design Team has released a statement on the LAN of why they went with this new road system in which the roads are brick-built. Since the rumors and eventual reveal of the set, there have been a lot of differing opinions on the pros and cons for both the old road plates and the new ones. Which LEGO road system do you prefer?

There are several benefits from the new LEGO® City road plates being introduced in 2021. The new road plates play an integral role in the LEGO City products where it, due to the modular nature of the builds, allows you to be creative and create the LEGO City of your liking. This is the reason we actually believe the new road plate provides a more authentic building experience and also because it can be reconfigured in many ways and it allows you to connect your LEGO City buildings in a better way. Going forward we will also be able to include one or more road plates in relevant products across the LEGO City portfolio. This was something we were not able to with the old version. We believe this will be a big advantage for the kids as they don’t need to buy a separate road plate product to get started building their LEGO City. We also
