Yep

Which one?

I believe that it's its own.

I see two things wrong with this set.
1) The singer
2) The ridiculously ugly pink and lime green mohawk. Just make it lime green. It looks like shit now.

It's just lime. Also the guitarist has a different hairpiece, it's the pink one on the original girl guitarist but in black.

And yes, it is an actual set. If it wasn't I wouldn't have posted such a crappy portrayal of a band (Natalya's is way better).

Well then I don't know why they used a marbled one in the picture. :mystery:

But anyway, here's a newly announced set.

It might not be obvious at first, but there are some pretty crazy building techniques used in this set (take a look at the windows on the passenger cars). I'm hoping we'll see a lot more of these "EXPERT" sets.

I don't get it... why do they have built up guitars instead of Lego's guitars?

Not the windows themselves, the way they're attached. They finally decided to apply some fancy headlight brick math.

Lego trains rarely disappoint, in my experience. Also, a funny NPU: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gambort/80 ... 1654069126

Those new villains look pretty sweet and that golden samurai mech also caught my eye, other than that the builds seem like a bunch of recycled ideas to me though.
