  1. That can't be a coincidence. The Rocket and Penguin guy?? Lego had to have seen these and rolled with it.
  2. First of all let me just say that I am a big fan of "weathered trains". I used to model N gauge and there wasn't a single "clean" loco or car on the track. When you're modeling like that the point is to get it as realistic as you can. I have thought about weathering Lego trains in the past with my airbrush but I don't have a Lego layout and didn't see a point to it. The various brick placement to give the impression of a weathered Lego train is brilliant. I think that is a fantastic idea and I like what you have posted so far. I think you should go for it and see how they turn out. On the flip side I can also see why a lot of people wouldn't like it. Lego trains don't have a great deal of realism and the real trick is getting them as close to the real thing as possible but in the end its obviously Lego. Paint details just don't seem to be a big concern with Lego train enthusiasts. I still think its a great idea and I think it could definitely look very cool.
  3. That's a sharp looking loco. Nice work. I'm more of an east coast rail guy but I do like the BNSF orange. I'm also a sucker for anything EMD. Again, nice work.
  4. I'm really excited about this series. I think I'm going to pick up a few cases of this one. I need that Rocket Boy figure!! I've seen a lot of negative reactions to the Mystery Figure thing and I have to say that I'm looking forward to it. They need to change things up from time to time.
  5. Lol. That is great! You nailed it! Awesome job.
  6. Wow. There is honesty and then there is just plain insulting. The review is an in depth unveiling of an upcoming series that many EB users look forward to (I've been reading them since Whitefang started them). I find it's a great way to get an up close view and several shots of the figures that make it easier to start the "feeling" process of the packs. I always find them entertaining as it is not your standard review. I understand everyone has their own tastes but bring it down a notch. I don't write the reviews but even I felt attacked reading your comments. Ps- He puts a lot of work into these reviews as well (A lot). Due to his relationship with TLG we get an early in-depth look at these series. Just something to think about.
  7. As always great review! I'm really looking forward to this series and I personally think it's one of the better ones we have had in a while. I even like the surfer due to the cool printed surfboard. I'm also in to the "mystery figure" idea. I like when they change things up to break the monotony.
  8. I think they're going to keep it as a mystery figure and not like the Mr. Gold thing. There will probably be 3 in each case but the "mystery" image will remain on the box and packs. We would have seen an image by now if it was just a standard character. They are probably just trying to change things up a little.
  9. Really nice work. The passenger car has great classic look to it and I especially like the interior. Also, the way you built the coal in the tender is really cool. Awesome job!
  10. Aaaahhhhhahahahahahahahhahahahaha! Yeah, seriously though. Thank you for saying something.
  11. Lol. I thought the same thing. Tough choice out of all of these... I'm not really a fan of any of them. Eh, I guess the Robot.
  12. That would basically be series 14 part 2 then.
  13. I have wondered for a while if Lego would ever do a costume series. Those are typically the most popular figures in the standard CMF line. I'm amazed at how much people are willing to pay for some of the older ones like the Bunny suit from series 7 to the Hot Dog Guy in 13. If this is truly the case and we do get a full "costume series" I imagine it will be a huge hit.
  14. Interesting point. I'd love to see their sales figures on average and how Series 10 sold alone On the whole Minifigures cost- I remember when Series 1 & 2 were $1.99 (US Dollar) per pack. They went to 2.99 at Series 3 and eventually $3.99 where we are now. Toys R Us debuted the Lego Batman series at $4.99 and I imagine it's only a matter of time until it's that way across the board with the other retailers. I'll probably stop collecting at that point.
