    @Bartybum, what did you use to re-colour them?

    Thanks, I bought them because I like them so much, I wish Lego does a fire truck similar to 7239 that would be cool

    DC Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I don’t know, unlike live action films where certain characters can’t appear because they’ve got a role in this TV show or that film, or they don’t want to use them to avoid confusion, TLBM directors were essentially given carte blanche as to who they wanted in the story. There wasn’t anyone off limits from above, they chose the ones that fit the story. Unless the Disney Marvel execs are so tight they could be used to manufacture copper wire, I don’t think such a deal would be unachievable.

    You should read “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.” Or hey reacquainted if you haven’t read it in awhile.

    [MOC] The Razor Crest by Edge of Bricks

    Thanks. The cost ended up about £170 as I swapped out some parts post build. The build was a mix of Flat Silver, Metalic Silver, PLG and sprayed lego parts - as you are aware there are only limited parts in silver available - the effect mimics the drum lacquered approach Lego uses to make its own metallic gold and silver parts and is not destructive/permanent. I'm not a Ghost fan to be honest so I can only say the RZ is a great build, looks great and my lad loves playing with it.

    [TC20] Indy Storm (8445)

    Not in width ;) but it is according to contest spirit, because converting to studless means also converting to odd width. But really good conversion. But I'm also really struggling with 8440. Basically with front, as on original steering arms goes trough pin holes. With actual steering arms I can't do that, and because of that front becomes pretty massive, I can't build it so compact.

    42126 - Ford F150 Raptor

    Whipped up some basic colour variations below... I've gotta say, there's a lot of colours that would work very well for this set. In order: blue, yellow, teal, sand blue , red, purple, lime, LBG and 42099:
  14. I suspect that this thing might have been cancelled or delayed to next year already. It doesn't appear in the most recent catalogue, so it won't be out in August. The details for the October wave are out already, and this thing still doesn't have anything. Maybe it shares the same fate with the Airport Rescue Vehicle. That set was originally planned to carry the number 42051 and be released in 1H 2016, but was delayed to 2H 2017 and assigned the number 42068 instead. The reason was explicitly stated that TLG thought it wouldn't sell well in a Technic lineup that had already been crowded that year.

    Heroica: Glory Amongst The Stars - Heroica Hall

    Zaria stared at Varen, unsure of what to make of the description of his former routine. "I have so many questions and I do not know where to start. Does every lawyer follow such a routine?" "While you are at it, a glass of water, please? I do not wish to over power my sense of taste." Zaria chimed in.

    Jurassic World 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I know this isn't really relative to this year's Lego JW wave, but you know what we need? A novel that follows the events of re-establishing Isla Nublar after the 1993 incident. The storyline could follow the viewpoints of the hunters who capture the dinosaurs, or the builders braving the perils of the jungle, etc. Just a cool thought; I may write a fan-fic version of that myself!

    [MOC] The Razor Crest by Edge of Bricks

    @Hold0511 That build looks great, I'm surprised there are that many bricks in the various metallic/silver colours out there. Are all the metallic/silver bricks genuine lego or did you have to paint/modify some of them? If you don't mind me asking, how much did the finished build cost? Tossing up between building the @Kozikyo86 Razor Crest and the @TGBDZ Play Scale Ghost next; any recommendations?

    Skull's Eye Schooner Restoration

    This is an expensive past time... those sets don't go cheap on the secondhand market, even if they're incomplete. I'm very thankful I got mine back in the mid 2000's before it became popular to collect LEGO. Back then you could get quite good deals on classic sets, sometimes in MISB condition. What about the rarer minifigs? How big was the basebase? 16x16 or 32x23? Does the print resemble an island in the centre or a river?

    I suspect the brown hull will work better with the colour of the sails. Currently the "curtains don't make the carpet"

    [MOC] [INSTRUCTIONS] another Millennium Falcon

    18 months later and I've finally finished this build (mostly). The design is fantastic - the build is so heavy, so intricate, but strong enough to hold its shape. This is a great midway between the official system scale sets and the UCS Millenium Falcon. The parts list is pretty good, but there were a few parts that just weren't available in Australia; the tyres inside the mandible access points for example haven't been available at all since I started this build 18 months ago, and some of the older wedge plates were hard to track down in any quantity. I think your design decisions were great though; all of the rare parts that remained inn your build deserved to be there and distinguish it from other Millenium Falcon builds. I think it will go nicely with the 20th anniversary edition Slave 1, which is a similar scale. My photos are too large for Eurobricks but they're available here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CQNPwm4J-6Z/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link The crates that you included in your original build, before the instructions were created- do you think you could upload some more photos of those so that I can copy them? Thanks again for sharing this great build with the community! Very proud to have it in my collection. It fits in with builds from all the other best Star Wars MOC designers like Jerac.Lego and Inthert.

    Wow! That's cool man. I miss those days. 2005 was the start of my TFOL years as I had just turned 13.

    I am not a sneakerhead, but I genuinely enjoyed the packaging, build experience and finished model — that's why I was eager to share my enthusiasm in this thread! I love seeing real objects re-created at a 1:1 scale using LEGO, and this is a very satisfying example of this style of building. When I review sets, price only plays a small role, and usually only when a sub-par set happens to be a great parts pack (so it gets a small bump in the rating). —Tom P.S.

    Yes, 99% of the world is definitely heterosexual in all places at all times and all media must abide by the exact reality of current world demographics, got it. Lol
  25. Um, maybe for some people, but I don't think so. I like the shuttle. I like it as is. I like the lime speeder and the Barc is a Barc but I get why it's there and that's fine. A better shuttle isn't going to smooth over serious issues (in my eyes) with figures of the main characters of the show. They could come with the most fantastic UCS-scale Kamino model that comes with the first ever Kaminoans and they'd still be just as flawed as they currently are. It's a good thing they spend a lot of time with their helmets off, though. I could just forget about the helmet altogether.
  26. Theory—no one would really care about the quality of the figs if the shuttle were better. They’d certainly get some criticism, but people would still be grateful that the full BB were in the set. The problem is that the shuttle itself has too many serious problems with it, (asymmetry, weird cockpit, size, and color) for it to be as good a set as something like the Razor Crest, which just had somewhat good figs, that were probably on par with these ones. This leaves the figs as the main draw for the set, putting them under a lot of scrutiny.

    Super Mario 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Ah, ok! Now that I think about it, I do remember there being a large hand in the opening cutscenes of those games. Huh. I'd Love a goomba stack! Maybe it could be handled like the pokey? On another note, I was wondering if the ship could be used as a storage place for extra mario parts/enemies while it's closed. It definitely looks like it has plenty of room inside, but how much of that is taken up by the hand? If there's storage room inside, then it's an even better set!
