While relatively new to LEGO set reviewing, Pandora impresses with her review of 4644 Marina. From LEGO’s set pictures it appears that this is no match to 6543 Sail N’ Fly Marina, but read the full review to find out how this set really stacks up.

But that’s not all. Even though the theme still has to hit the shelves in large parts of the world, the Eurobricks Town forum already has reviews on all Harbour theme sets. So while you’re at it, also check out TheBrickster’s review of 4642 Fishing Boat, buddy’s review of 4641 Speed Boat, and mifody’s pictorial review of 4643 Power Boat Transporter.
It brings back lots of nice memories when I saw Eurobricks MCW Moderator, LuxorV latest 6665 River Runners review. This small river adventure LEGO outback set comes with plentiful minifigures and useful accessories with an affordable price tag.

What do you think? Do you like it? If you missed this set, then you should probably look for it in the secondary marketplace. I believe it will be quite affordable to acquire it.
A big thanks to Eurobricks Town fan, kris kelvin for sharing new images on the upcoming 2011 LEGO Harbour sets. Even though, we can only view these official set images of the new 4643 Power Boat Transporter and 4644 Marina in this incredible sub theme, I am really very pleased to see the new marina activities to be introduced for our LEGO City minifigures since 1994.

So, after viewing these images, are you feeling excited as I do?
Earlier ago, I was browsing around for some cruise inspiration and I chance upon Flickr’s member, hhc88200 photostream and saw this beautiful Catamaran 1 near the coastline. The entire built may looks simple but it’s definitely classic enough to dock at the Classic-Town.net harbour.
Normally I’m not huge on mini/microscale vehicles (“zomg, check out teh supa cool wartohg!!1″), but every now and then someone builds a micro MOC that really fascinates me. In this case, that’s French soon-to-be-architect Pierre Fieschi whose weirdly unique MOCs I’ve been enjoying for quite some time.
There's the tugboat - now how about a ship to go along with her?
And finally, now there’s a City-themed creation of his that I can actually blog – it may not be as big as his Maintenance Unit or as zany as his various Space MOCs, but it’s surely one of the cutest and most successful microscale designs I’ve seen lately.
Today, we take you sailing, in style. Dutch AFOL Daniel Z., known as DNL in the AFOL community, takes a break from castle-building, and builds some lovely yachts for a show in Norway, his current country of residence. He cleverly uses curved slopes to achieve a realistic hull shape. Now who’s that lady sunbathing on the cabin cruiser?
That’s the question that TheBrickster asks in the Eurobricks Town Forum. It seems like townies TheBrickster (Trains) and MetroiD (motorcycles) have already made up their minds. But… how do you prefer to travel? What Lego MOCs or sets to you prefer?
LEGO builder Lomero builds this interesting MOC, a Small Steam Boat. While the description of this nicely designed creation mentions “Steam Punk”, it would just as well make a fantastic Chinese junk. The general shape of the MOC works very well and must have been somewhat difficult to create. With the addition of the rounded steam boiler and the extra details, Lomero’s creation gets “two thumbs up”.
Eurobricks Trains & Town fan Ralph S constructs a sturdy Sailing Yacht. This mid-sized ship is packed with fantastic nautical details for his two swift sailors to enjoy. More pictures can be found in the Trains & Town forum.
