  1. No set name or price at this point, eh? They're keeping everything really tight under the wraps... @just2good Also, thanks for mentioning me in your Juniors list video! Journal of Exetrius Day 47 - It has been weeks since the wind of Hype slackened, left us to our own devices in this barren, static sea. A glorious Ninjago treasure island lies on the horizon, yet is painfully beyond our reach. We have run out of fresh Vermillion supplies, some crew members are taking their resort in rumours of what lies ahead, others have dug up old topics to ward off the boredom on the Discussion 2017 ship. Oh, benevolent wind of Hype, have mercy on us! Allow us to continue on our path!
  2. Yeah, didn't know when it came available and if it had ever gone out of stock before. Take it as a friendly reminder that it is still available, then.
  3. Doing some more searching at the moment, I found an Agents of Shield torso from the Helicarrier: Element ID: 6112612
  4. Next magazine includes a mini model of Lance's Twin Jouster, which looks pretty great!
  5. I'll add that to the vocabulary. Thanks, SK! Thanks! That lighting was indeed intention, I'm often trying to find that one angle that reflects the light towards the camera.
  6. Same story here, more or less. There's my studies, the planning of my summer holiday and also increasing temptation to explore other LEGO genres. I have a many GoH build ideas for my personal saga, but so far I have postponed them due to said other activities, the scarcity of parts or the lack of motivation to start. Maybe I will start building spontaneously in a week or two.
  7. LEGO designer Robert Heim gives insight in the train of thought for the Ice Spikes set, in this article on minecraft.net. Most of it is written in dummy and review-with-interest language though, so here's the most relevant bit for us FOLs:
  8. I was secretly hoping to get Roog's head/body gear piece in sand blue or black in the BP, too bad about that... It's such a great piece for a stone golem or minifig Ent, but not in purple. The upper two stone monsters are pretty nice, though, cool helmet and I don't mind the reuse of the Rogul face and sand blue Ash attacker helmet at all.
  9. Thanks a lot, guys! @Blufiji I have a white desk against a white wall and a rod-shaped LED desk lamp. I make the room dark, turn on the lamp and hold it really close to the object I want to photograph. It creates that kind of shade horizon effect (the further away/larger the object, the less contrast is between illuminated surface and shade).
  10. 70625: Samurai VXL has the Medusa hair in Dark red and one of the two new Vermillion armours available. That's about all the new interesting stuff I could find.
  11. Only because a certain white-haired mage happened to be absent, right?
  12. I don't really get your point? In my opinion,TLG shouldn't release sets about every concept or theme that can exist in people's Minecraft creations. It's a bad idea, because of market saturation. Introducing different skins (and the remaining mobs, blocks and structures, too) in the sets would help to keep the theme viable. More Steve variants to collect = more sets sold. While writing this, I had some crazy set ideas that are never happening, sharing them just for fun: 211XX: The Server - Includes main lobby with mini game portals, parkour and a PvP mini game area. Also comes with Steve, Alex and three player minifigs with custom skins, two lobby pets, two server mob heads and a fire trail. 211XX: Modpack - Includes a generated boss structure. Comes with Alex, Herobrine, custom evil villager soldiers, custom chests and craftable devices, overpowered armours, swords and magic wands.
  13. Agreed! Imagine if we would have gotten those with the waves up to now... A nomad skin for the Desert-themed set, adventurer skin for the Jungle hideout, a snow coat for the Ice spikes set... Missed opportunities. There are official MC skins for console players, so I don't see why LEGO couldn't design 'official' skins for Steve and Alex in the regular sets and not just figure packs.
  14. Thank you! Yes, photographing hasn't been optimal for this build, usually I only use this setup for figbarfs only, but at 2.30 AM, I was a little out of options... I hope to explain the significance of trans purple and the gold in a different build soon(-ish), as well as to properly continue my Exetrius Saga. A big thanks for your compliment, I feel like this is really my niche within Nocturnus, and more will certainly follow!
  15. I can't find a single thing that does not look good in this build, everything is just right and that's a feast for the eye! The greens work well for the house, along with the excellent figures. I like the activity, from the forging in the back, to the woodchopping in the front. Nice balance between studs and tiles on the ground, too. And those missiles... heavy-duty! Great work!
