  1. I know COVID has slowed stuff down (and these switches really do look excellent) but I wondered if you had any update on when you might be looking to start the R72 & 88 curves?

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'm glad to hear that, @LegoFjotten. I was getting worried about the reports also. I'm hoping it was just a few errors early on in production.

    MOC: Flying Scotsman (with free instructions)

    Is there any chance anyone put together a brick link compatible parts list for this that they'd be willing to share? Edit: @VirusZero, the link above from brick safe (dated 10/1) still works.

    Updating Your Minifigs

    At the risk of having missed this elsewhere in this thread, which pants did you use for Krennic? They all look great!
  5. Really excited to hear this news-- I've been holding off buying R88s from others hoping that this would be coming soon.

    TLG acquires Bricklink

    Wow, I stand corrected. That changed fast. I’m extraordinarily disappointed with TLGs decision here. I understand their lawyers shutting down other IPs, but going that far on customized bricks or prints seems unnecessary and antithetical to the community.

    TLG acquires Bricklink

    [emphasis mine] Where are you seeing that? So far all I've seen is idle speculation on the part of worried AFOLs that this will be the case. So far TLG has said that they're planning to be hands-off on this. I'm still hopeful that they won't crack down quite that far.

    [MOC] Blue Imperial Fort

    I love this-- reminds me of one of my favorite sets of all time-- 6265 (Sabre Island). Great job!

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    It’s up in the US. And for once the website was smooth sailing— I was even able to use gift cards to pay.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    There is a lot of speculation on what will happen with these happening across many platforms, and this seems like speculation at best. Until TLG weighs in saying so, I would be surprised that they would cancel and not just find a new home for these.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I keep hanging onto an unfounded hope to hear that the car and tree set will be part of a hogwarts express re-release. Thats where we got them the first time around, and I am sad I passed on the set then. Price point seems similar to the 2010 release too.

    (MOC) A-Wing fighter

    Although, it is a 6x6 tile and not a 4x4 like you suggest. Which IS a lego element, and does come in blue. See, http://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=6881#T=S&C=7&O={"color":7}

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I saw a rumor on reddit that there is a new UCS Falcon box pic floating around, has anyone heard this rumor or is it just the standard hopes and dreams of lego SW fans?
  14. I finally caved and ordered the U-Wing from amazon. With the discount, it was too good a deal to pass up on the first weekend of release. It will join the TIE Striker and AT-AT on my shelf.

    Star Wars Minifigures vs Other Themes

    IMO, I am impressed at the sheer number of mini figures that lego has made for the SW theme. I am sure this is not the most-widely held belief, but I do not have many complaints about how these have progressed. Main characters are of course going to be repeated. It is the only way to bring new people into the market. The 9 year-old wants Luke and Han, not Willow Hood. While this is not truly scientific, according to brick link there are 833 star wars mini figures. This represents almost 1/10th of all the unique lego figs ever made. Regardless of cost, the quality does not seem to be generally lacking either. Yes, I am disappointed that Jyn did not have leg printing. Yes, I was disappointed that there was not a widely available C-3PO in the TFA waves. Yes, some could have (some, or better) arm printing. That said, this has been building for a while. The printing on the SW line seems awesome, and I am overall quite pleased. And I will be looking forward to Thrawn next year to fill that particular void in my EU MOCs.

    LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    ^The Striker is huge, but it is also one of my (non-expert) favorite sets in a while. Some interesting building techniques I do not remember seeing in a basic release, and just a very solid, swishable fighter. And the shore trooper is cool as well. All in all, well worth the price tag, IMHO.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    That is not how I read his comments. I thought he said that we are getting the two that leaked in the winter wave and two additional battle packs in the summer wave?

    Force Friday (30th September) promotions

    Got revan in-store. So that's still one alternative if you have a store close by. Edit: IL US ~1130AM.

    Force Friday (30th September) promotions

    Sometimes they go up as backordered before they are in-stock. I wouldn't worry. They are still showing up as Out of Stock for me though.

    Force Friday (30th September) promotions

    Let us know if that is true. That would be a welcome surprise. Although I hope they will make the RO sets live with the promotion if it is true.

    LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    Nope. They are not up yet in US/Canada

    Force Friday (30th September) promotions

    I am sorely disappointed that the Revan is already gone-- the RO sets aren't even up yet! Guess I will try a B&M store and hope they still have some.

    ^back in stock where? S@H still shows it Temporarily Out of Stock for me.

    October 2016 LEGO Store Calendar

    I am very pleased to see double VIP points return, especially coinciding with the RO set release, but I am disappointed in that I was planning a couple of major set purchases this week, with the September releases, which I will now put on hold for a month. :(
