    I like LEGO and Zoids. I have an extensive collection of Lego and a growing Zoids collection. I adore MOCing and a variety of "themes" dominate my building, most recently this is Science Fiction MOCs. I like making random figures but no super customs just yet. I have made it my mission to review as many clone brand sets as I can, so people can get an informed view on the competition. My other hobbies include reading shelfloads of SpecFic, writing short stories, drawing, gaining knowledge and seeking out SF artbooks. I am currently studying to be a Civil Engineer and I work full time for local government. That's all I'll write here, you'll get a better idea of me from my posts. :)

  1. I was personally wondering if something like Sailor Moon or other Magical Girl anime would be popular. A group of colourful heroes, each with their own themed power... Sounds familiar right? As a replacement for Elves it would work, as a fantasy element would remain but it would be set in somewhere more modern and down to earth. Follow the tropes and it would work out well as a counterpart to the Action themes aimed at boys. Even a theme with a solo magical girl ( Cardcaptor style) leaves room for outfits, friends and monster-of-the-week.
  2. Oh, a golden banana is a great surprise piece. Very useful. Looking at the CMFs, the ones revealed so far are great. I have been a little put off by the prices of most of the sets, but the CMFs will fill the void.
  3. Ha ha! Galidor fan, absolutely superb.
  4. Ahem Can I draw you to the requests at the top of the thread. More specifically: Future Action Theme concepts please. -- I have to say I am loving the dieselpunk suggestions! Sky Captain is one of my all time favourite films so something along those lines would be fantastic!
  5. You got it! A storyline reason for a new Atlantis (Or any new underwater theme) is just what I'd like to see. Simply saying "I want a new X" is like posting a photo of a brick and calling it a MOC.
  6. Action and Adventure Themes are an odd bunch aren't they? Here is a place to talk about ideas for the future. However there are a few ground rules: This is not a Wishlist thread, so please no posting lists of themes you want LEGO to make. A Compelling Idea is preferred, an outline of a theme idea and story-line (basic or otherwise) will help immensely. Give us a reason to think "That's cool." Continuations, reboots, prequels and re-imaginings of current or past themes are very welcome but not demanded. Remember though: Spies, Submariners and Spelunkers are staples of Action and Adventure themes! Remember: It has to fit into Action and Adventure, too SciFi and it wouldn't fit, too mundane and we're talking town. Licensed characters and properties don't fit (But you can liken an Idea to a known property if you like). This isn't a place to attack current themes or to bang on about their cancellation/ending/replacement. This is just a place to share ideas about the future. Lastly: Have Fun!
  7. @LEGODalekbuster523 Please, please can we have a rest from Doctor Who? I appreciate that you are a fan and want to see more products. But not all of us need to hear about it all the time at every opportunity. Nor do we need further arguments about "mistakes" or the "potential success" of any products. Please could you consider this request.
  8. It has to end with an image extension, so .jpg or .png. If you select view all sizes in the "Dowload this Photo" menu, you can choose a size image that fits guidelines and right click the image. Copy image address is the option you want and you can paste it into the image URL space for a profile pic. This: Came from this: https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4250/34820758311_2b1da33412_n.jpg
  9. Or, if John Constantine was played by Simon Pegg ~(100% would watch that.)
  10. WELL, I like what I see so far!
  11. The main issue for a new Action Theme is the fact that LEGO do not use the same classification as us. So their Big Bang might not be one of our Action/Adventure themes. As for new adventurers? The new Jungle explorers are terrific and only need a little creativity to make your own storyline. But this sort of thing is really a discussion for elsewhere.
  12. It happens all the time. If we suspended registration then actual real new members would be put off. What you need to do is report the spam post and a Moderator will deal with it. We are all volunteers so it sometimes takes us a little while to get on to it, but it is dealt with.
  13. You would think that Eurobricks was a community for LEGO products or something...
  14. Or, @dignowas it is the subforum I handle you could have messaged me to move things around for you. Now you have two choices: I merge the separate threads into this new one you made or I lock the now unnecessary threads.
  15. Tablescrap often and never fear a teardown. If you build something and dislike a part, try subbing in different parts. Personally, I design on the fly. Starting with a sketch of what I want to achieve, then filling in the shapes with suitable parts. LDD is completely counterintuitive to creativity for me, but I am fortunate to have a large and varied collection and a long history of building.
