  1. Some ideas for CMFs

    Thanks to the frontpage I finally found my way in here, too. Really fantastic creations, Robert8! Like some already stated: Thank God TLC didn't produce all of them (I spooted a few which have been issued in a slightly different manner), what would have blown my budget! And while you're not pretending to be a LEGO designer, TLC still should keep an eye on you!
  2. Monochrome Minifigures

    Me too! And the pink feet, the flesh torso, the dark azure head ....
  3. Monochrome Minifigures

    You're right: Light aqua and purple (?)!
  4. Nice review! Too bad this is really exclusive: If only I could get this for my collection! I watched the German TRU webpage from mid September but it wasn't available at any time. Does anyone have an idea where I can get it for the original price? They are skyrocketing in the aftremarket right now.
  5. Eurobricks Event 2018 - Heads Up

    Sorry for getting back late to you. All in all our event is about meeting the guys and gals you write to on the boards in real live, getting to know some new friends, having LEGO related fun, taking part in various contests, buying LEGO (of course) visiting the Legoland and other LEGO facilities. Traditionally we are in Billund every second year, alternated by Windsor and Günzburg each four years. For myself it's among the best days in the year! Here's some information about last this years event in Günzburg, Germany: Information topic - picture thread Billund varies slightly from that: The event takes place in the very heart of LEGO, so we have some more opportunities (wait for the information topic for 2018) what we can do. Check out this summary about all the events we had so far. But I can assue you: Nobody ever regretted to have been there.

    I'll be there for sure!
  7. Review of City of Wonders Gift Sets in Malaysia.

    Nice and comprehensive review! But - mmmh. The Hibiscus is nice but not what I would call a brilliant masterpiece. The hut is ... basic: No special parts or techniques. For the kite I believe you have to be asian to get anything from it. In the ketupat set TLC finally used some interesting technique, so thumbsup for that. But are these parts really olive green? I would swear they are lime green from the photos... In sum it's a very versatile arrangement with all 4 sets. Made for the asian market I'm not the target group, so everything is okay.
  8. Help with identifying parts/sets!

    Another tip from my side: Try trimming the photo from unneccesary information. For example all four borders on your photo which only contain black. Even for cell phone pictures there's always (at least for android devices) on board software on your device which allows you do so. Then again I regard you photo to be large enough to gather the information needed.
  9. Nice review, Jim! Still this set is not doing anything to me. I'm missing the play features. But then again it's an airport fire engine. What could I have expected? Like others have already pointed out, it could be an (overpriced) parts package. If just I was missing the parts... I used to collect fire engines in HO scale 1:87 so fire engines are on my interest line. Not this one for this price. Did you build the B-model yet? It really Looks like a great alternative to the A model. Here the designers did a fantastic Job.
  10. Nice review, WhiteFang, as always. Thank you for all the work you are putting into this and the nice comparison-photos! It doesn't make me change my mind, though. Since TLC decided to raise the price once again, I will pass on any uninteresting minifig and this series is crowded with them. 3,99€ is clearly over my personal limit I want to pay for just one minifig. Hear that, TLC? Booooo! . Ninjago itself doesn't do anything for me, it's just single parts that are interesting. I'm also sure I won't be watching the movie in the theaters unlike the last LEGO movies. One good thing is the distribution of the single figs. 60 all in all and you get three copies of each? That could be worse. The only figs of interest for me are N-POP girl and the guitar rocker, maybe the Sushi chef as well.
  11. REVIEW: 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V

    Yep, I can: First of all it IS a beauty, it looks great on display and it's huuuge! Building the rocket is full of small wonders: First you think 'this can't be right' and in the end it works perfectly. But besides all that it's nearly crammed with unusual building techniques. Sideways building, using clips and ball joints - a variety of new printed parts, no stickers. And it is stable! I would say you better not swoosh it due to the size, but if you really wish... On a sidenote you really have to look out to place everything in the right place and it's also repetetive, but in this case it didn't bother me at all - I enjoyed every single minute building it. I took my time and had 3 days of building pleasure.
  12. REVIEW: 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V

    I started building this beauty, and I'm finished with the first module (bags 1-5 ) right now. It is a real pleasure building it and it is going to be a personal top-scorer! Definitive among the TOP 10 LEGO sets of all time!
  13. REVIEW: 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V

    Seconded! The best sidenote on this amazing set is the number of bricks used for it!
