  2. Fragile Pieces?

    I got a bad batch of dark read in my palace cinema. And before anyone who has never experienced says "oh my god! What did you do? Try to smash them into place with a hammer?!?" I grabbed the same dark red 1x1 tiles from my own collection and had no problem. Every single one that came with the set broke, none of the replacements from my own collection broke. They were obviously too small - bad mold? Cooled to fast? Too slow? I don't know, but something went wrong. And TLG never made good on it - I complained, they said they'd send parts, I never got them, I sent email with the picture and called back; the operator I talked to was flabbergasted and promised me they were on the way.... and I never got them.

  4. Future Castle Sets?

    I don’t care what Lego likes.
  5. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    These buildings never interested me before. I always preferred their big brothers but strangely I just start to like them! The only problem for me is they don’t fit with the modulars - two solutions: putting them in another district or MODing them. I searched for some MODs and alternative builds of the Bike Shop and Café, there are so much of them but there are only three I really liked (personal taste). So here are my favorites: Jewelry Store, Pizzeria, and Bricklyn Bike by @sonicstarlight House Church by @alanboar HK 31026 Alternate by Inyong Lee
  6. [GBC] Carousel

    thanks for the comments... to be honest, I'm not that fussed about the balls scuffing.. they are really lightweight remember, and I've had my lot for many years now, running over many 3-day conventions, and apart from the friends' logo, and soccerball print coming off, none of them have 'worn down' at all I thought about the upside down tiles.. but the issue is getting them around the curve.. the other idea would be to somehow flip the plates.. not impossible, but would definitely raise the height of the whole ring.. Actually, just thinking now... one option would be to have TWO rings of train train... have them back to back, and use a bit of brick trickery to connect them on the outer stick-out sleepers.. then the whole ball surface would be studs up.. allowing the use of tiles But... I'm happy to keep it as is... it proved itself for 3 days at Brickvention, and I didn't hear any complaints from my fellow GBC'ers who were running it, about reliability.. (and trust me, we are all quick to blame/laugh/poke fun of someones module, when it fails spectacularly!!)
  7. yes, I didn't carefully this. Are there two boxes or 7853 too? I didn't find this set in any catalog after 1985.
  8. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    May be if it is an "sporty set" can be too from Fantastic Beasts, we know that Hogwarts is in the film, maybe Newt go Hogwarts and saw a Quidditch match betwen Hufflepuff and somelese.. it would be a oportunity for lego to make a set with the four houses with Quidditch robes.
  9. [MOC] PAIGE

    Thank you! I think the cartoon you're thinking of is "Whatever Happened to Robot Jones?", although I've never seen it myself, I only know of it from online. Vintage sci-fi was definitely the look I was going for with the brain case though I didn't really have any specific series in mind. Smoothness was also a big goal with this MOC, particularly since I started out with the thighs and wanted to avoid them looking out-of-place or overly simplistic compared to the rest of the model. Oh, I also shot some more pictures of PAIGE when I was home in late December/early January that I guess I never shared here. Just some more poses and a couple size comparisons. The lighting's not ideal but I ended up liking the photos anyway and I hope people here do as well!
  10. What's your favourite modular building?

    I'm at the "look for a house with a bigger basement" step in my LEGO life cycle.
  11. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    The sets back in 2002 and 2011 were priced 11.99 and 19.99 euros respectively. The latter set did contain two more minifigures but the stand was much smaller. At 39.99, I am hoping we get more stands or Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw robes. (Oh! The other day at Universal, I saw they sold SEEKER shirts for each House with: Potter, Malfoy, Diggory and Chang on the back!) I surmise since the Seekers are the most popular players, they might choose these four to represent Quidditch robes from each House. But in any case, the more expensive price for a Quidditch set must mean it is a bigger set in some way! :)
  12. [MOC] Playstation CMF Series

    Great work! Big fan of your CMF series ideas!! The only games here I’m an active player of are Crash, Spyro, and Sly, so if any of these games were ever to become an actual Lego license, I’d pick them up in a heart beat!
  13. Heroica RPG - Quest #159: An Unexpected Return - Sewers

    OOC: What would classify the Mage's Muffler as?
  14. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    It would be wrong because Hermione is a main character, not because it would be sexist. Such an idea that LEGO would be making a statement by denying female minifigures double-sided heads is absurd and has never been seen before.
  15. Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    A lot of rumors and information misinterpreted but we really haven’t hear anything about what LEGO marvel sets we are getting this summer so we will just have to wait unfortunately and see what we get.
  16. Great contest! Thanks for putting it on @Jim and @Milan. Congrats @MegaRoi, your entry was very original. Also thanks to the people that voted for me, I appreciate it.
  17. Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    A lot of people (including myself) will be modding the interior to increase the space, surely in the coming month you could find inspiration on how to improve the set for yourself
  18. Heroica RPG - Quest #159: An Unexpected Return - Sewers

    QM Note: Again, you're going for inconspicuous, the glittering dress is -1.
  19. Heroica RPG - Quest #159: An Unexpected Return - Sewers

    Cool. I just needed some clarification. What would you give the Glittering Dress? I assume it's a little too flashy, but if Karie can go all out on a persona or a false identity, she will. Karie removes her Encore Plectrum and dons her Trickster's Mask of the Elf, brushing her hair about to ensure her new pointy ears were visible. She then removed her face paint and domino mask.
  20. Purist Superhero Figures

    Thanks numbuh1nerd. The helmet is from the ghost ship in the lord of the rings line. And I love the Living Totem.
  21. Today
  22. Mail system

    I have been able to send out mails in the past and can't now. Funny as this will end up being my 10th post LOLOL!!! That is pretty crazy stuff. EDIT: Yep, don't get the message anymore.
  23. I love this moc! and I like that you made the ground equally as good!
  24. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    It's not necessarily sexist. I doubt that the LEGO group would choose to exclude Hermione because of her gender. But I agree. It would definitely be odd.
  25. Minifig Contest Voting

    #9 #14 Some great entries here; these were not easy choices to make!
  26. Oh gosh, I really hope not. If anything deserves that kind of massive set it's Jurassic Park, not Harry flipping Potter.
