I wonder what SPOP means.

I believe it says SPQR.

From Wikipedia:

SPQR, an abbreviation for Senātus Populusque Rōmānus, is an emblematic abbreviated phrase referring to the government of the ancient Roman Republic. It appears on Roman currency, at the end of documents made public by an inscription in stone or metal, and in dedications of monuments and public works.


The last phrase seems particularly relevant here.

I'm negative on this one.

Out of all landmarks to give a 9k piece treatment

Roman Colliseum?

C'mon.

MAybe Burj Khalifa. Now THAT would be an epic build.

Maybe NY Skyline.

Buckingham Palace.

White House and Capitol.

Eiffel Tower.

Golden Gate Bridge.

Literally any of the landmarks from the architechture line.

I presume it actually says SPQR and it's just because of the low quality image that the Q and R don't properly show. 

Didn't see someone else had already replied with the same information. 🙂

Sorry to poo-poo on your parades, but I prefer to wait for the official announcement and release. It could only end up disappointing otherwise 😉 

Whatever it is, I would expect a GWP worth at least £100 upon release and VIP access only for the first 5 years! - LOL.

In my collection, I only have Architecture/Landmark sets of places that I've actually been to, and this incredible monument in Rome is one of them.

What on Earth are you guys on about, is this a ribbing of new members to see if they are worthy of "the club"? In another thread, I did get a response from TabbyToys (who I'm being confused with), but she new nothing of BrickPicker, has never joined a Lego forum, but does live about 5 miles from me, as do a couple of other AFOLs. I wanted to meet, but not permitted due to the COVID-19 bollocks.

It appears that my responses are confusing some of you with this other mystery being, but I've not been in "the game" long and don't hold anywhere near the inventory or experience that you think I do. I'm certainly no Lego expert, but I have been dabbling on eBay with other products for many years. I started off with computer parts, then ladies handbags (yes! good ones from charity shops) and, more recently, craft and exhibition signage materials.

carini26... You seem a little worried, why would that be?

Sorry to deviate from the subject so, keep calm and carry on 😉

A 9k piece Golden Gate Bridge would be epic...I might be a little biased though since I live in the SF Bay Area.

How many, I don't know, pallets would you say you are holding?

I'd probably be able to stack it in 3 layers all on just 2 assuming each one is 1m x 1m. I do have 3 pallets in my lock-up, but they don't have Lego on them. What about you?
