Joining it is the LEGO Super Mario theme which comes with a slew of expansion sets to go along with the Starter Course (71360).

There is an image of a new LEGO City set that has been found at the LEGOLAND Billand store called the Main Square (60271). Just looking at it, there is a lot going on with the main focus on the town hall. Fans will also like the return of a small monorail that takes visitors to the city diner and performance stage. The price on it is 1399 DKK which is roughly about $220 USD. There’s no details on when it will release here in the US.

LEGO Technic Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey (42113) Cancelled Due to Faulty Parts?

A week ago, LEGO announced that the upcoming LEGO Technic Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey (42113) will be cancelled for release due to it featuring a military vehicle even though this version was a search and rescue plane. A few lucky individuals were able to get one from their local shop and it may seem that there could be another reason why it was cancelled. A user over on Reddit showed a few images of their set and explained that some of the gear pieces became damaged with extended use. As you can see from the image below, the teeth on the gears are all bent compared to the undamaged part. Coincidentally, Huw over on Brickset released his review of the set today and the same issue was with his copy as well.

Connecting the dots, it may seem that there was more in play for the Osprey cancellation other than the reasons stated in the official comment. If it was due to a faulty part, it would make sense to cancel everything and release at another time when the issue is fixed. LEGO said that they will be making another formal statement soon so we’ll see what is actually going on.


BrickLink to Start Charging Sales Tax and VAT

If you’re a user of BrickLink, they have announced that they will start charging sales tax and VAT on products on the site. Sales and use tax will be collected in the US by the end of September and VAT will be charged to EU sellers starting on August 5. You can read more about it below.

Dear BrickLink member,

Over the next few weeks, BrickLink will undergo some changes that will affect our membership. These changes are necessary for our platform to be compliant with sales and use tax and VAT legislation where applicable. We also feel they will help build our reputation as a well-regarded ecommerce site. These changes are broken down into three categories outlined below:

1) We will begin to collect sales and use tax in the United States. We have already registered in two states – Connecticut and California – and we plan to register in more states within the next few months. All orders shipping to an address in these states, even from stores outside the United States, will be subject to this tax requirement. We anticipate BrickLink will start collecting this tax by the end of September.

2) We will begin charging VAT on BrickLink fees to EU sellers who have not enabled the VAT feature on BrickLink. The first invoice date this will take effect on is Aug 5, 2020. All VAT-enabled EU sellers will now have their VAT registration checked by BrickLink.

3) We will soon present you with a revised Terms of Service. You will
