    Jurassic World 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Agreed. I definitely preferred the old Baryonyx printing because it looks a lot more realistic than this year's. I get they were trying to recreate Grim as much as possible, but the colors appear a little too vibrant. I would've gone with a standard green body, a dark nougat underbelly, a dark green back and body stripes, and orange orbits with orange pattern running down the neck and back. Hopefully we'll see Limbo's coloration someday. I'd literally kill for some future CC sets!
  3. Minifig Leia against Big Leia: "Aren't you a little bit big for a minifig?" She looks really great, especially with the cape?
  4. What is the current solution, isn’t it a screwdriver arm or something?
  5. I added the different weapons just to accentuate how different each member is. I for one don't exactly care about the reused helmets on Hunter/Echo, but for those who do, it's a tad tiring to hear about "Lego did the best they could!" or "Lego's knocked them out of the park" or my favorite: "It's Lego not Hasbro" (not throwing shade, I've seen it said many times about multiple figures in the past). Crosshair is the absolute biggest offender. I'm sure they could've squeezed out a couple of extra cents to make a proper helmet for him. Maybe if we get him in his OG outfit, I dunno. Also, I was a tad bit irritated at issues outside of the forum, so I admit I was a bit salty in my prior post. Echo's got far worse problems than the helmet of course, which, barring a new arm, will be difficult to rectify (even the current purist solution gives him an arm that's way too long). If you like them, fine. But I feel like making excuses for Lego (in general) isn't in anyone's best interests. They do what they do, and if it's not their best work, it just isn't. No ifs, ands, or buts. Personally I'm over the moon at the exceptional work done on the Mandalorian figures (still pissed about that Mortar Trooper helmet ), so the Bad Batch being "meh" doesn't move me either way.

    Jurassic World 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    i really don't think that LEGO is going to make feathers dinos..i could be wrong though. Kids and adults alike have always imagined dinosaurs as more scaly, lizard like creatures, and the LG wants to suit the publics interests the most. Let's be honest, even if lego does make feathered dinosaurs, they usually don't make the most realistic things anyway! this is actually really going off topic haha. Anyway, who here prefers the old baryonyx printing over the new? i do!

    Future Castle Sets?

    At the very least, white / black weapons /helmets can fit with the White/Black Skeletons from either the 2007/2008 Fantasy Castle waves, or more modern recent Ninjago waves which had (legacy) Skulkins and Black Skeletons , and a white/black and black/white version of a runesword . Not all the helmets will fit on the Ninjago modern skulls however. Also the 2018 Nexo wave had black/white villains (with red eyes and green contrast prints), but might be a bit too techy for pure fantasy, but I think black or white helmets would still work on them. , As a bonus the eye torso print really reminds me of Sauron, or Warcraft (Old Gods / Darkmoon Faire) , kind of makes sense as they were controlled by monstrox "servers" to connect the digital to the physical world in the final comics. Nexo also used black shields for 2 years (2016-2017) for the villains , which offer some customization options. For white Shields there's this part , in 2018-2021 sets : https://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=30166&colorID=1&in=A

    LEGO Star Wars 2021 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    They definately are unique. They have different weapons (I mean, they literally all come with different weapons, so I'm not sure why that's there), they have different gear. They don't share the same helmets, but lego can't put 5 new unique molds in a single set. Especially considering the sheer amount of new figures and prints this wave. We have 14 new characters (Paz Vizla, Armorer, Gar Saxon, Bo-Katan, Mandalorian Loyalist, Moff Gideon, Fennec Shand, Dark Trooper, Mortar Trooper, Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, Crosshair, and Echo.), 3 new variants of existing characters (S2 Greef Carga, Post-ROTJ boba fett, S7 Maul, and I won't count it but technically a new Gonk too), 3 new arm-printing torsos (Fennec, Boba, and Echo), 4 new helmet molds (Armorer/Gar Saxon, Dark Trooper, Fennec, and Tech), and a new armor mold. Add in that you've got around 70 new prints, and it's no wonder they couldn't fit 3 more helmet molds in the budget. I'll grant that they maybe could have given fennec hair instead of a helmet and used that mold for crosshair, but Echo and Hunter definately don't need new helmets. The only problem with hunter's helmet is the fin, but seeing as he's got paint exactly where the fin would be on his helmet and the p2 fin is pretty minor, I really don't think it's a big deal. Echo's helmet has a raised bit pretty much where the fin is and basically the same shape, and the back might be a little different, but a: it's not exactly noticeable and b: if I remember correctly none of us had any clue what was going on back there with his actual character until we got a view of how it's put on around 5 episodes in. TLDR: We have 5 new molds, 14 new characters, 3 new variants, and around 70 new prints this wave, so expecting each batch member to have a new mold might be a bit much. Crosshair probably needed one, but echo and hunter didn't.

    LEGO Shop Staff Interest

    I had a chat with one of the employees at Leicester Square the other day about some older Architecture sets (10+ years old) — we kind of nerded out about our interest in the line. Clearly knew a lot about both those sets and the current offerings in the shop, although I didn't need any help in the shop.
  13. Of course you can stay here, there is no problem! It will be interesting to learn something new here. :D
  14. @keymaker that sounds interesting, are you maybe ready to share ideas just about the axle itself? I am just starting to work on the motorization of a model with live axles using those hubs, and am a bit stuck (the non-motorized model uses non-portal hubs so GC is okay). So far, my best solution to the ground clearance problem is building the A arms at an angle like this, something that I used in a previous model (that one had pendular axles, not real floating ones). Not sure this could be fit into the fire truck though, maybe it's too wide. @Danifill we can take this discussion offline if you are not interested, or we can stay here if you are, let us know.

    Jurassic World 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I believe the Pyroraptor's movie design includes feathers, so I wonder, taking the raptor arms, Lego could add small wings or branches of feathers, kind of like the eagle or phoenix molds that DBlegonerd7 mentioned. I love that red-blue-tan color scheme in the toy model! Do you guys think that a Pyro could make it into Lego form? Edit: BTW, I just noticed some discrepancy between the previous Baryonyx body and this year's version: two of the small spikes that are in front of where the studs begin are missing. I don't think that would necessarily be just for a budget cut, because it looks like you can now attach a 2x4 without it overlapping the tail. I wonder if that kind of trait will take place next year?

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    So, my second ‘new animal’ order arrived today, and I’ve caught up to @roebuck again - just missing those elusive elephant heads! Have to say, none of these animals disappoint in quality. The new adult lion with mane is great, I hadn’t quite sussed the slightly limited head mobility that the mane would cause, but it’s no biggie, the head seems to be slightly higher than the other big cats, to allow for the mane, giving it a more impressive silhouette. The lion cubs are cute, but nothing compared to the baby elephant which has to be the cutest single Lego brick ever made. Even cuter than that hermit crab! Printed python and new eagle are also exquisitely done, really sharp printing on what can’t be straightforward moulds. New croc colour is very welcome and the monkeys are great; so glad we get two different colours already. Last, but not least, the sheep is just perfect - the dual moulding on it, and the monkeys, lion mane, and eagle is so well done, and makes the colours so crisp and clean against each other. Will be interesting to see which ones are reused and how. I’m guessing many more uses of the monkey, and expect to see the lion cub as a tiger cub soon enough. Sheep being dual moulded is interesting - I wonder if we will ever see a ‘black sheep’ or if they will stick to only using the dual mould for two colours? Always feel like I’m playing catch up getting my Lego biodiversity updated though ... no sooner had I ordered these than I heard about the upcoming black angler fish, and a possible baby croc ... Not complaining, obviously. 😜

    Jurassic World 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Science is against you on this way I’m afraid But in all seriousness this will only affect the two-legged dinos (there’s debate if the TRex had feathers) so four-legged dinos are unaffected. Also this won’t be a permanent change, just a few reprints / moulds which will likely remain unique to this film

    Jurassic World 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Nope. We don't have solid evidence for feathers in dinosaurs. Really, the closest evidence we have to feathers is tiny muscular tissue fibers that sort of resemble feathers in many dinosaurs: Kulindadromeus, Yutyrannus, Sinosauropteryx, etc. I do have to say, they really do resemble feathers, but they are beneath the dermal layer of skin, so they cannot be feathers unless they are outside of the body. Otherwise, all other dinosaurs with guesswork feathers are either assumptions or speculation. I do remember the Archaeoraptor Scandal though . I would not mind feathered dinosaurs in Dominion, just as a bit of diversity among the seemingly basic placements in the franchise. According to ScreenRant, Oviraptor will be the first feathered dinosaur that appears in the actual film, but I'm not sure if it means the F9 short or Dominion itself. Hm. We may be straying a bit off-topic with this though. If you want to know more, feel free to message me!
  21. That's opossite what I was thinking when 18+ was brought to light, and there will be very mature and difficult models to build... yeah I know its sounds like good joke right now ;) Maybe they should bring Racers Theme back? for those type of models with almost no functions.

    Jurassic World 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Eh, both species have been recognized as birds, like Caudipteryx, Scansoriopteryx, etc. Kinda strange, but there are birds alive today with teeth and claws. It'd be cool to see an Archaeopteryx in the film, though! Hmmm... yeah, just a couple of blurred images. I wonder how they'll play a part in the film, though. I do have to say, that Giga may need to be a bit bigger.

    Hello I'm Sebulba56

    Hey there ! My real name is Noé but here you will call me Sebulba56. I am from France and I am currently 20. I also am an old member of the french forum Techlug where I have the same ID. I collect lego since my childhood, the first set I remember I had is the 7103 Jedi Duel from 2002 with Count Dooku and Yoda. I then became a huge collector of star wars set during the Clone Wars era principally. After I begun to buy technic sets and making mocs with the pieces. In a few years my inventory became bigger and bigger and I now have enough pieces to make greats mocs. But it's been a long time since I didn't but a technic set. Now I focus on 18+ and expert sets. I have been a reader of Eurobrick for a long time but I never signed up. I decided to do it for the TC20 technic contest. I am preparing something for it. I also recently made a 1:10 Ferrari F40 that is 95% complete, I will present it on the forum on the following months. To introduce myself I could show you a moc I made 3 years ago and presented on Techlug. You can find it on the following link : https://www.techlug.fr/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=11618 I hope that you will like my contribution to this forum.
