  1. Post office is not the worst. Its in the middle of the lineup: not great, not terrible. I think the Market is OK, but it just takes up too much space. Santa's workshop does nothing for me, I actually turned it into a train station for the WV train last year. Imagine my disappointment when a train station showed up this year (although its completely understandable why Lego made one). I wish the train station was a more substantial building. Not too big, but the set could have more presence.
  2. What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Last day of double VIP points at the Lego Store this year, so I just got a FO battle pack, K-2SO buildable figure, Bounty Hunter pack and the U-wing (which was on sale).
  3. Future Star Wars Minifigs

    Captain Phasma Chromed Ponda Baba & Dr. Evasen Two Tubes Updated Bespin Lando Garindan Padme/Senator Amidala/Queen Amidala- Lots of choices, anything would be nice Galen Erso The resistance and First Order spies from Maz Kanata's castle Vader's servant guy from Rogue One Any alien from Jedha, Mos Eisley, Maz's castle not already produced.
  4. [MOC] Bay 327 - A Star Wars Museum

    Excellent! Nice facade, fun interior, great details. Love the droid head flower pots.
  5. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Based on pictures of these two sets side by side and some movie photos from TFA I've looked at, I would say BB-8 is slightly smaller in scale to R2-D2, but its closer than I initially thought when I first saw the BB-8 pics. These two sets will look great together.
  6. I love it overall and really want it, let me be clear about that before I nitpick. The bad: Stickers Lack of minifigures overall. If its ESB-based, Lando, Luke Bespin, C-3P0 and R2-D2 should be here. This would've been the perfect set to put an gold chrome C-3P0 in. For the TFA, again, R2-D2 (yes, I know he's not technically on it in the film, but its implied). Could be better: A little more interior A better, brick-built solution to the engine bank I was going to mention price, but the price per piece is actually decent for a Star Wars set. Hope this is packed somewhat nicely like the Technic Porsche 911. I think the opposite. IMO, this will sell very well and reach EOL faster than people expect. I get the feeling Lego will not produce large quantities of this set. This will skyrocket in value because of its awesomeness, and 10179 values will go back up a bit, too. (This is just my opinion, though).
  7. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    If the ~7500 piece count is true, that is ~2300 more pieces than 10179. Seems like more minifigs and both styles of radar dishes will be included, but that still leaves a LOT of extra pieces relative to 10179. Will this be a bit bigger in overall dimensions? Have an attempt at an interior? Stronger internal frame? Much more detailed exterior? Brick built engine bank instead of the boat rigging approach? Brick built display stand? Another ship or landing area is part of the set? Will it have the same pieces in different colors that switch out to give it the TFA look (see 7965 as compared to 75105)? So many possibilities!
  8. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Looks like Kylo Ren's TIE at the top. The "enhanced" photos certainly show a Falcon cockpit under the LEGO logo on the box (not the LEGO logo on the white covering). This is very interesting!
  9. The Best 2015 LEGO Star Wars Minifigure Round 1.19

    If only Maul did not have that silly grin... Shadow Trooper it is.
  10. Lego themes that we need to be happen

    I know I'm quoting an older post here, but this person was close... While its not exactly what he/she described and hoped for, the new City Jungle theme is the same basic idea. Hopefully a future City Jungle set brings back the great elephant from the Orient Expedition series.
  11. I ordered both versions recently and received them very quickly, especially given how far they had to travel. Communications with Walter went very well. It was a pleasant experience and the stickers are nice. No pictures, as I'm building my 42056 slowly (its a "I work on it when I'm not working on other Lego projects" side project), but I am excited to add these stickers to the model. I will probably combine version 1 with the version 2 spoiler sticker and save the others for when I get around to building the body shell in an alternate color (probably yellow).
  12. REVIEW: 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V

    This set is almost too good to be true! Printed parts, conversation display piece, great looking, great build, nice manual, nice box, great price (by Lego standards). I only wish they had included one sticker: a spec sheet like they use in Star Wars UCS and on the Batman Tumbler UCS. That with a regular sized, detailed astronaut minifigure on a display stand would have made this set perfect. This is a set I highly look forward to purchasing and building!
  13. Ideas for new City sets

    Some sort of archeology/paleontology theme. A dinosaur bone quarry set. An ancient ruins excavation set. A set featuring a vehicle that transports finds from digs. A research building. A museum that features a dinosaur skeleton and a model of a dinosaur (i.e. a dinosaur maxifig). A theme like this may not be super exciting to kids in terms of vehicles, but if you can work in dinosaurs, it has a chance at success. Basic City life sets: Eateries, libraries, schools, stores, homes, post office, banks, car wash, town halls/city offices, etc. Delivery service line: cargo planes, trains, trucks, boats, sorting buildings, shipping outlets, call centers, etc. So much stuff is sold and shipped via the internet, including Lego. Model something after UPS/FedEx/DHL/USPS systems of package handling. Make the packages Lego sets as seen in set 3221.
  14. [MOC] Speed Champions 75877 alternate models

    This is brilliant. Well done! The Merc AMG is one of my favorites from the Speed Champions line, so I won't repurpose that one, but I might try my hand at building alternates out of some of the other cars.
  15. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Bounty Hunter Battle Pack: Possibly Dengar; since he was in the Freemaker set they probably have a bunch of him. Some sort of IG assassin-style droid, not necessarily IG-88, though. Zam Wessel? Boussh-style fig? The bounty hunter from Ord Mantel? Perhaps there will be a fig or two that are being hunted for the bounty? The pessimist in me says it will be four IG-style droids in black or white...
