  1. Minifigs sure could come to life in the same sense as Woody and Buzz, with the added bonus that they could swap parts. I suppose the "hive mind" could work, although it is hard to imagine a single brick being able to spontaneously move without a little help.
  2. I use plastic bins that can be purchased in Walmart. Each set is bagged in normal plastic bags ranging from sandwich bags for the smaller ones up to ziploc freezer bags for the larger ones. If the instructions can fit inside the bags, they will be included.
  3. Excellent detail! The grey and tan go well on the cathedral.
  4. Looking forward to the Glittering Caves!
  5. That is a long time to wait for a reveal, and of course there would be a time gap between the reveal and the actual release of the set. The Apollo 11 command module had been on display in the Smithsonian in Washington for many years. Only its location is really changing, perhaps for the anniversary. My guess for the silence and possible delay would be that Lego knows it will be a big seller (no pun intended) and are busy on big production runs in order to avoid a repeat of the Mars Rover and any other set that lasted about as long as a snowball in Florida. The design on the rocket surely would be resolved by now, so hopefully they are getting ready to release it in late Spring or early Summer. Now if Lego did want to create some more press around the project, they could have a special release at Johnson Space Center on July 20 right in front of the real Saturn V. Just saying.......
  6. That is a lot of detail and good work in the cathedral. Nice techniques, especially with the rose window
  7. Wow, that is a lot of Classic Space. That is great how the monorail weaves throughout the space base. It is a nice design and blends in well with the massive collection.
  8. Lovely cathedral! The tall vaulted nave works very well. The details such as the tombs, organ assembly and the sand green details really add to this build.
  9. This is a very nice rustic looking diner. Funny thing is that if this was in Alaska or Canada, the bear itself would probably be the dumpster diver I would probably add a little bit of food to the presentation. If this is something like Alaska, you could have burgers (moose meat), sausage (reindeer), and of course some fish.
  10. If the Lego S&H is an indication of things to come, it does not look good. How would a potential year 3 do well if the starter packs for PS4 and XBox are shown to be sold out on the website? Many of the level, team, and fun packs are also not available on line or in the Lego Stores either. We have had to rely on Toys R Us and sometimes the 99 Cent store to find stuff. Other than the new Batman Movie level pack, I have not seen Lego itself do anything to promote the game.
  11. Kind of surprised to see that James Bond would be considered as it has so much similarity with Mission Impossible. Not saying that it would not be great to have it, just seems like the abilities/missions might seem redundant between the two. With Bond action taking place worldwide, I wonder how the Adventure World would turn out. Perhaps like Doctor Who, where they have bits and pieces of different locations fused into one world?
  12. This is an amazing work! There is some very innovative detail going on, especially on the roofline. I really like the colors as well.
  13. It appears that a lot of the wave 1 sets were overproduced. Rumor has it that the stock for the 99 cent stores originated in other big box stores like Walmart, therefore it did not come directly from Lego. In three of the area stores, the common factor was an army of Krusty the clowns. Why so many of those were produced is beyond me. He is sort of an unessential character as the Bart or Homer packs can access the world. Krusty does not really have any unique abilities either. He does not make a particularly good parts pack with the unique character mold and the hodgepodge of colored parts, so even resellers are not gathering this one up. There were also a smaller number of Portal 2 packs in each store. We also saw Nya and I finally found Scooby. With the cost of production, labor, and packaging, I would have to think that $1 would be a loss for Lego to have to sell at that. It would appear that someone took a loss on these in order for them to end up at those stores. Oddly enough, there is no overlap with the Five Below store, who is trying to sell the three Chima packs as well as Gimli for $5. If Gimli were in the 99 Cent store, I strongly suspect he would sell quicker due to the army building potential.
  14. Both are nice, but I prefer the Parisian Restaurant. It looks great inside and out on all sides. PR happens to be the older one, so it could retire sooner than the bank.
  15. A very visually appealing structure. The blue and gold accents work very well on this. Excellent work!
