    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    That might apply to America, but not the UK. Now we don't have Toys R Us, it could only really be a Argos exclusive, but Argos normally has whole lines exclusive (like the new Elves sets) rather than a single set. And even then, the Lego S@H has always had the exclusive sets as soon as the retailer so that doesn't really make sense either for the UK. It is an odd one for sure ...
  3. Welcome to the voting for AMS-2's winning entry. We have five contestants, each with their pros and cons, and it's up to you, the voter, to decide which one takes the podium. The voting system is as follows: 1: 10pts 2: 8pts 3: 5pts 4: 3pts 5: 1pt Your submissions should look like this: [insert text of choice here] 1: Contender's Username 2: Contender's Username 3: Contender's Username 4: Contender's Username 5: Contender's Username [insert text of choice here] -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now, for the entries! @romashkaman 42071 "Dozer compactor" mod This dragster is seriously redesigned base set with addition of: 1 x LiPo battery 1 x XL motor 1 x servo motor 1 x IR receiver Main functionality of the base set is saved (except the worm gear for the front shovel) It's pretty fast - I didn't expect that result! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- @sirslayer Lego 42068 ARV dragster !! This lego moc/mod ended up turning the default set into a dragster and an upgrade to any 42068 fans if you want to have suspension on your fire truck!! it still retains its boom functions and the dragster model is finished, the non-dragster version is still a WIP!! The dragster features includes 56mm default tires on front and 68.7mm tires on the rear to give it the "dragster" look Flat 6 fake engine with blower and exhaust pipes that extends out like a dragster 2 Xl motors for power to the drive train. (this model weighs over 7 lb with add on's!!!) it still need more power !! Retains all the fire truck functions 1 Brave lego man driver based from red frog man Dragster panels from real dragster set!! Now a few pictures of my moc , the lego 42068 dragster! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- @Marxpek The Missing Link The year 41: scientists have now found the blueprints to a long lost design. It seems they found a missing link in the evolution of Lego Technic, images of the subject are very rare, as it has just been discovered:  The blueprint show parts from all ages, Most parts predate the year 20 but not all of its parts are that old, it seems to have a new type of rear-wheel still used today and it contains a powerful drive system from around the year 28, while this is considered an outdated system nowadays, this is still the most powerful Lego power unit ever used. A lot of research is needed to find the ancient parts needed to build it, and there is no telling how it will behave after it has been built, it might be hostile, so careful study is needed of a live specimen. We cannot replicate the design for now, but with the blueprints, we at least now know, where to search and that it exists, or at least; once has existed. This is where you come in, let's go on an expedition and find us some precious data on "The Missing Link"! Start your expedition by clicking the portal below: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- @mocbuild101 Lego 9394 Jet Plane RC Dragster/Drifter Features: Steering - powered by PF servo. Drive - geared down 3:5 from fast output of buggy motor. Motorized wings (not RC) - powered by PF M-motor. Easy to remove battery box - if not using rechargeable battery. Other Specs: Weight: 650g (with rechargeable battery) Original functions kept: 1 (out of 3) Theoretical top speed: 14km/h (at least) Video: (make sure to turn on your sound) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- @MangaNOID Its probably hard to capture your attention at the moment with the new Bugatti 42083 coming out, so with very little effort, behold! the Friction Truck. B model of 42061 with a built in (out) friction motor able to propel the truck 5 meters or more from a standing start! It retains functions of original model except I used the front fenders on the tow point for extra drag down force. umm...urr...that's all really. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- @Offroadcreat1ons So here's my entry into the AMS-2 comp. The model is the 9395 B-model, but I rebuilt the entire chassis to add drive and suspension. I modified the body and added a bunch of details like a wheelie bar, exhaust, and roll bars, and I fixed some of the colors. The model has all the original functions like a winch and doors, but I took out steering and the lift thing and gearbox in the back. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A big "thank you!" to all the participants, and good luck to you all!

    Montoya's personal diary, Day 36, the wonders of fire Again, young Baker proves his versatility. Having attended geology lectures in Belson, he identified a local mineral that could be used for striking a fire. Since then, we have had warm, well-cooked food. /Montoya

    Great little scene! I like how you changed the rock colour to add a little interest to the backdrop.

    Thanks Bregir!

    [COR-FB] Fort Totie in Jameston

    As I said elsewhere, I absolutely adore this little fort. It looks so efficient and at the same time cute! Your guns are great, and they fit very snugly into the emplacements. I find it quite impressive that you have managed to include sloping sides at this scale, and I like the detailing inside and out. You have also given it life with all those minifigs in different poses. Well done, Chieftain Spud!
  8. On a slight tangent (apologies).. spoke to customer services today about my order for the spiral gearbox selector and new 20 tooth clutch gears.. and the lady i spoke to was the most helpful person in the world. A real credit to TLG.

    On a deserted island

    Montoya's personal diary, Day 35, Hunting After finding the curious alter in the middle of the jungle-engulfed ruins, our interest was piqued. Hence we followed the tracks inland on what seemed a former main road, now reduced to a track for animals and natives. We see signs of the natives everywhere, but have, curiously, not seen any in the flesh. Young Baker has crafted a fine bow, and has proven very effective at procuring specimens of the local wildlife, including an interesting local type of deer, which, coincidentally also proved very tasty and nutritious. /Montoya
  10. I would like you to use the version that has the gearbox 4 studs back.

    Settlement, Jameston, Celestia, Corrington

    Medium fortification: 'Fort Totie'
  12. Medium Fortification: Footprint 1024 studs in Jameston Having realised that the flourishing settlement of Jameston relied solely upon a small battery, Lord Spud constructed Fort Totie. The word 'totie' means 'small' in Spud's colloquial tongue. This name fits excellently, as the fort only allows protection up to head height and allowing eight guns to point at either sides. Spud has taken note of this star design and is keen to replicate it's shape in the future. The artillery officer commands the construction crew to hurry up and clear off so the fort can be operation as soon as possible. The small gun battery will be licensed as a medium fortification in Jameston.
  13. The second thing. Although it would be good to see black cylinders.

    Doctor Who CMF Campaign

    The 40th anniversary is of the saga in general, as well as of A New Hope in particular, and the set pretty obviously represents LEGO’s commemoration of the milestone. It was likely based on those two movies because there had already been numerous ANH-specific representations of the Falcon, and also because by doing so they could symbolically span the entire timeframe from the original trilogy to the current sequel trilogy. (One might hope the 50th anniversary will bring an even more definitive version that specifically portrays the Falcon as seen in Return of the Jedi, or possibly even the entire saga.) Yeah, many would, but you specifically said “the best said about the 60th and 40th anniversaries held by Lego this year the better”, so I tried to please by saying the best about them.
  15. Very impressive one ! And what a shape !!

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    For those who still don’t know, the Hogwarts Express is on the target website as coming soon. It’s obviously a Target exclusive so I guess Lego is giving them a go with it first. They’ve done this before. The A-Wing with Lando didn’t appear in the Lego brand store until a while after it had been out as a TRU exclusive. But target is the place to find the Hogwarts Express right away! Regardless of the reasoning, that’s where you’ll find it July 1

    Doctor Who CMF Campaign

    Whilst you could consider the Millenium Falcon a 40th anniversary Set. It’s based on The Empire Strikes Back and The Force Awakens. Whereas the 40th annoversary is of A New Hope. and compared to what Lego could have done for their anniversaries this yeah, I think many would agree what we got was just fine, but not great
  18. Very neat house, the roof is very well built, and clever use of cheese slopes and of the lime plates ofc.
  19. Today
  20. @Legostone Thanks mate. Good point on the upper windows, I'll replace them with the one and half window, like the lower ones.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    For many reasons it's a shame that it's not minifig scale, but I was really looking forward to some new castle elements, such as big cathedral like windows which now could easily be covered by existing pieces.
  22. This just hurts... cheapest Tie striker in here was never under 50$, or atleast I didnt find any

    You mean something like ... Planetary Outpost? 😉

    Inspirational Modular and Non-Modular Building MOCs

    I love this one! Has a little bit of Old Fishing Store's feel but in a more city of a context. Plus, the colours are insultingly simple but fitting. Pretty funny Draco Malfoy is making deals with those guys wearing capes
  25. LEGO Universe is unplayable, as the server holding all the info / game itself has been gone for years... You can't play or build with an Massive Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG) without the online part, sadly.
