The rumors were true, it is a cinema. This image was found on the Lego website. The official announcement is expected soon and the set will probably hit the shelves somewhere around March.
One of the cool things about this set is the dark red baseplate. It is either a 32 x 32 or two 16 x 32's.
As of this set all new modular buildings will be part of the Creator Expert theme.
The castle is based on a real castle in Ireland. The real castle does not sit on a coastline or river.
The water is created beautifully, the round 1x1's are simply deposited around the castle. The use of different colors makes it very realistic.

This is a scene from London in the 1890's. A very cool creation by Flickr user "G∆be Umland".
The creator has done a great job here. The lampposts are decorated with beautiful bows and there is even a small choir singing in the streets!
The inside of the building is very detailed and fun to check out.
See more on Flickr!

It is great to hear that the Back to the Future DeLorean time machine has made it trough the review. The final model is expected to become available mid 2013.
Unfortunately the rest of the projects have not passed the review.
Here is why:
Eve Online ships
The business case was considered to challenging.
Modular Western Town
Is conflicting with an ongoing project at Lego. (the don't say which project but we can assume it is the new Lone Rangers Theme).
The Legend of Zelda
Too many new molds would have to be made for this theme. This would require an investment that is not within the boundaries of a Cuusoo product. They do note that when a project does note pass the review it does not mean there could not be similar projects in the future.
Check out the review video on Cuusoo!

Lego has announced the arrival of the new Lone Ranger theme. This new theme, based on the movie starring Johnny Depp, will be coming in April 2013!
With the release of this new theme Johnny Depp will become part of the select group of actors who have a minifig in more than one theme.
Already in this group are:
Warwick Davis as Griphook, Professor Filius Flitwick (Harry Potter), Wicket and Wald (Star Wars)
Harrison Ford as Han Solo (Star Wars) and Indiana Jones.
Orlando Bloom as Will Turner (POTC) and Legolas (LOTR)
Ian McKellen as Gandalf (LOTR) and Magneto (X-Men)
Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool (X-men) and Hal Jordan (Green Lantern)
Did I miss any?
Helena Bonham Carter also has a role in The Lone Ranger. It is possible her character makes it to one of new sets in this theme. She is will then also become part of this list since she portrayed Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter films.

It is a diorama of a sea or riverside castle. A great church, pretty village, impressive walls and a beautiful ship all make this a very impressive creation. It is filled with tones of awesome details, like two caught sharks hanging form wooden poles.
Also there are some very funny jokes hidden in this creation, can you spot them all?
