  1. EB Xmas Raffle 2016 - Your ideal Snow entry thread

    I just realized I hadn't posted my thank yous yet! Thanks to EB, CopMike, and whoever else helped organize and fund the raffle. I'm a huge Batmanatee fan. I couldn't quite swing the '66 Cave set, but I have a goal to build my own now. Thanks again!
  2. EB Xmas Raffle 2016 - Your ideal Snow entry thread

    Whoa, day one winner! I don't have to check any more. Oh wait, I still do for the prize reveal. :) LEGO bigfig Fabuland manatee confirmed! LOL
  3. Best DISCREET Lego Cabinet

    Ah yes, it is good these are discrete. I imagine people would be glad to buy just one and not have to buy all of them connected together... https://www.google.com/search?q=discrete&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8#q=discrete+vs+discreet
  4. EB Xmas Raffle 2016 - Your ideal Snow entry thread

    I almost forgot, but thanks for the reminder! Last hour entry... Google says... -- 9:00 PM Sunday, Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is 4:00 PM Sunday, in OH --- When I think of snow (and LEGO), I think of Ice Planet 2002! EDIT: Oh and always, thanks to Eurobricks and CopMike and mods for the holiday raffle!
  5. THANK YOU! This is always something that stuck in my crawl here at EB. I've always wanted to bring this up. Other fan forums I contribute to that have respect for the fan company don't allow this. Why was it acceptable to discuss bootleg products here... I can't go to my Magic: the Gathering forum and encourage the ebay scum that print and profit off printed proxies and share links to their stuff and encourage others to buy. It's in their site rules. I can't go to my Terraria forum and ask for, provide, or share links to torrentz and hacks of the game. It's in their site rules. The point that there were threads that users actively spread site links, auction sites / store names, reviews, price comparisons, and generally explained how to and encouraged order bootleg LEGO products was dishonorable. I know there will be some confusion and issues for a while as what's ok and what's not ok to discuss and how, but I trust the staff to handle appropriately. ... also thanks for fixing the grey text around the forum. I'll poke around, but it seems to be more readable.
  6. Forum Upgrade

    I guess I meant on the text issue itself. Maybe a running list of acknowledged items in the first post would have helped my frustration. Oh, no, I did see that you all had been commenting, I didn't mean to say that really. Thank you all for your time! EDIT: BTW, I did find it weird when I typed it and hit submit, it didn't take me away from the page, so I thought it didn't post. No, "Save" just made three copies of this. I deleted them?
  7. Forum Upgrade

    I reserve my final judgements until the transfer is complete and I've had time to find my way around. But, opinions aside, the amount of light grey text is terrible design. Light grey text on white for signatures, Light grey text on white for times, light grey text on light yellow at the top for Browse, light grey text on light blue under the "activity" pages, light grey on light blue at the bottom for "Accepted file types... something or other." The last two are heinous and actually unreadable! I've gone through a few pages here and this has been mentioned several times but no admin response on it I saw. Please, please consider changing these if they are not part of the rollout or if there isn't a different template we can use. I can't see myself spending time here if I can't see half the site, and I'd really miss the community. Any admin or mod response would be highly appreciated.
  8. Thank you all for your comments. It looks like I even got the author of the book I was inspired by to come by! Now that the contest is over, I'll probably add some more content here. I usually do a prettier collage style pic for Flickr, and I think I have one or two behind the scenes photos that could help somebody. The way the core is put together is a little different, it turned out to be a little frustrating to build until I got the geometry right. I think I might have some commentary too about my difficulties with scale.
  9. Spectre MK2

    Wow, very professional renderings and editing! Yes? Or the first few actual photos of the build? The LEGO rendering programs are so good now, I've seen some I can't even tell what is real. My brain is leaning towards real. Sorry no real criticism, it's really nice work.
  10. REVAMP: Skull Basher

    That's awesome, I love that it feels more... well, bull-like, horse-like, minotaur-like, something. If I had some criticism, I guess I gotta be that guy that points out that the upward pointed spikes are right in the... er, groin region and once I saw that, I could not unsee. I would remove those myself.
  11. Best Minifigures Of All Time

    These obviously... http://brickset.com/minifigs/year-1975 ... trolling aside, one should make the list for the historical significance.
  12. [MOC] Purple Pharmacist

    Well, I thought that first reference picture looked familiar, it's my neighborhood. Very nice build, I can see your influences, and I think you did a good job with our... eclectic colors. Always happy to see Cincy get some architectural awareness!
  13. LEGO Seasonal 2016

    Someone over at Brickset thought this was "creepy." Gosh no, this is super cute! It's a doe eyed chocolate cupcake wishing someone a happy birthday. Does it get any cuter than that? Someone also said it reminded them of Mr. Hankey....
  14. Oh, that's fun! The mini-modular scale is pretty tough, but I think you did well with the details for the scale. The pediment art, clock, and tower parts are very nice.
  15. [Local Landmark] HVB TowerMunich

    Wow, very unique building! Never heard of this one. It's so geometrically unique, it looks somewhat surreal. Great job with your model. You have incorporated some very subtle shaping and textures and the scaling looks accurate.
