  1. Thanks! I think you're missing the point. The joke is that both of their best friends, Bucky and Rhodey, are both named James. But I'm glad you enjoyed the SNOT pun.
  2. Fun with Cap and Tony! The first two are jokes that got cut from my Brickheadz review. Let's start with a pun again! Snotheadz by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr MODOKheadz by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Cap V Iron Man: Dawn of Civil War by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr
  3. Wow, this is excellent! Totally spot-on! The use of the surfboards and just about everything about the head is perfect! I hope you'll make Nick too!
  4. No, I don't think this is true. As they always say, there is no such thing as a one-use Lego part as long as you use your imagination. I can think of many things that these two parts can be used for on their own, ranging from components in a Technic build to decorative elements such as pillars or greebling. And who is to say that kids wouldn't want to create their own color combinations for the six shooter like I did? There is no way a child could do this without the help of an adult.
  5. Well, after fiddling with various tools, I finally did it. The only thing that worked for me in the end was to use a pair of pliers to grab the ring at the front firmly and pull as hard as I could. I was hoping to find a less violent method, but thankfully the parts didn't get damaged too much. I've tried that, but there's hardly anything for the tweezers to latch onto. Clever solution! I shall try this next time, thanks! It seems that Lego's designers didn't think this one through seeing as you need to either use force or come up with a contraption like this to get the parts apart.
  6. Hi. I just have a simple question: How do you get this: out of this? This is the rapid-fire six-stud shooter found in some Superheroes, Star Wars, and action themes sets and I'm trying to switch out the center piece for a MOC I'm working on, but I can't for the life of me figure out how! It seems like all you have to do is push together the two prongs and push the piece out, but that's easier said than done. So if any of you knows an easy way to do it, it would be much appreciated if you could help me out!
  7. You know, you could've just posted a link to the wikia page instead of copying the entire thing over here, or at least put it between spoiler tags. It's cool that you put so much thought into this, but Jeez, that's a chore to scroll through! So you basically want a Lego RPG instead of the usual puzzle platformer? Sounds interesting to me! However, I don't think it's gonna happen anytime soon. The simplicity of the current games is what makes them so accessible to everyone, even if they haven't played a lot of videogames before, like many of the young kids and parents who these games are targeted to.What I would love to see is a Kingdom Hearts style game, but instead of crossing over Disney with Final Fantasy, have it crossover with Lego. You would travel through all the Disney realms (maybe even including Marvel and Star Wars), collect items, and fight monsters. The story would be that all the Disney villains have teamed up to take over all the Disney worlds and it's up to Mickey to assemble his own team of heroes to stop them. You can choose which heroes you want to have on your team and switch between them while you play like in Lego Dimensions. I also really want another Lego racing game. I don't care if it's a continuation of Lego Racers or not; I just want another fun game like that where you build your own driver and car and race against Lego characters from across different themes (possibly including licensed characters).
  8. Seems reasonable enough. They did. The larger vehicles all came with the old dynamite tile.
  9. Nice shots everyone! I haven't posted in here in a while either, but the latest Marvel set releases provided some great material for my series of Light/Dark Side comparisons, so here they are! The first one is a pretty obvious choice, given that the characters' names start with "Black" and "White" respectively.

  10. Nice to see this discussion continue now that it has been a few years since the release of PM! I will stick to my statement that PM was overall the better theme with its vastly superior rock monsters and builds, but looking back at these themes now, I feel more fondly about RR than about PM as I much prefer the more distinctive look of the RR characters and the overall much more gritty and more sci-fi look of the theme. The theme was also more about survival than about conflict or any of the other questionable stuff going on in PM. It's also pretty sad that a theme released in 2009 didn't have a single female character. But both themes were pretty cool in their own way. You're thinking too hard about this. This is just a fun exercise to compare the two themes and see which one people prefer. But considering this is based on a MOC where the two teams are literally about to fight each other, yes, I'd say this is a battle. The initial purpose of this thread was to showcase my MOC which is why it belongs here. The "battle" between the themes is just a discussion that arose from that and it is about comparing the sets and the themes as a whole rather than just the media (i.e. games and cartoons) made to promote them which is what the Media forum would be for. If you just want to post a "Which theme is better" thread, I think the Action themes forum (or whatever forum the theme you want to discuss belongs in) should be fine. By the way, I have a question about Rock Raiders that has been bugging me ever since the theme was released and I don't know where else to post it, so can somebody explain this: If the Rock Raiders have hover technology, why does the Tunnel Transport need propellers to fly? Does the hover technology only work for small vehicles or only at low altitudes? I know it's very nitpicky, but that's the sort of stuff that keeps me up at night.
  11. If it's anything like No Man's Sky, no thanks.
  12. Thanks! Hehe, sure.
  13. Thanks guys! Here are some more. Let's start with a simple pun. Ghost Rider by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Tink Big by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Super Breaker by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr
  14. The title sequence for Milo Murphy's Law featuring the theme song by Weird Al has been released! Not Al's best, but definitely still catchy! Looking forward to seeing this show when it starts in October.
  15. Thanks for the kind comments everyone! Yes, I think one of the biggest things these have going for them is that they will probably be good impulse buys much like Mixels. I'm guessing Brickheadz will be replacing Mixels on the shelves seeing as that theme has been discontinued. Yeah, the box art is quite unique! I'm also curious how well these will sell. I could see it going either way. On one hand, they will be inexpensive and appeal to the Funko crowd, but on the other they don't have any minifigs or playability which kids are usually looking for. We'll have to wait and see. Thanks for the frontpage by the way! Nobody ever said Funko invented vinyl figures, just that they're the most popular and the one with most licenses. The fact that TLG started making these right after Funko's became so popular makes it seem like they are trying to cash in on their success. The similarly square-ish look of the Funko POPs is also what leads people to compare the Brickheadz to them. I did say "Funko and other vinyl figures" in the review and I also pointed out that, while they look similar to the Funko POPs, they do have their own unique blocky style, so I don't know what you're ranting about. Yes, I loved building CubeDudes and I'm excited to have a new template to build characters with! Hm, interesting observation. That must be an error on the photographer's part because I did check the instructions and this is how it tells you to build it, with the star on the outside. As I said in the review, this is actually accurate to Cap's classic costume from the comics, as you can see on the comic-based minifig from the Cap VS Hydra set: I'm curious about this as well. They could be sold individually for $6-10 (again, like Mixels) or in pairs for $15-20 like you said. Either way would work in my opinion. Yeah, I hope they will have different IPs like Funko too, although they will probably stick to licensed ones, but if not, we can always make our own as you said!
