    LEGO (C) Les Misérables Musical

    @Legoman0120 and @JackLeftTown if you want to start a new topic on Les Misérables fine, but don't post in a dead thread from eight years ago that serves no use. (Sorry, Darkdragon beat me to it ;))

    WhiteFang's LEGO Studio

    Lot of nice classic sets WhiteFang! Now I also know how you add all those nice Minifigs from past releases in your reviews.
  4. Sticker paper is not used by LEGO anymore. I use white vinyl (like they use on cars).

    [MOC] House in Vilnius

    I think I would prefer the LEGO version to the original to live in ;) Nice job @zux. Great idea that 0.25 stud offset. One needs it now and then!

    Decals... again

    Not a direct answer to your question (I would actually also be happy to know how to do that in LDD ;)) but I use Photoshop to do this with rendered (I use Bluerenderer) LXF scenes.

    MOC Blue Pullman

    Don't revive very old threads, thank you.

    I'm getting married!

    @PepperoniBricks Congrats on your great day! Is your wife also into LEGO or did you let her sign a consent haha ;) Mine is into Technic (I think I'm the cause though).
  9. They won't peel off, not if you use decent vinyl like they use in cars and trucks (like I do). There are a number of Germans that do an excellent job, Steinedrücker comes into mind.
  10. It does cost money, but you might be able to use an educational license and they are very cheap. But when using after effects you do it right in the movie of course. Here is an example of the result using vectors (there a free vector tools including Inkscape) (quite reasonable):
  11. Yups, but it doesn't work like that, you will need vectors to get good result, I use vectors for everything (uh, I think there is one sticker of a classic hose where the TV screen is not a vector but apart from that), for details on stickers you will need vectors.
  12. I have experience with that, did a Uncle Tom's cabin diorama a few years ago. GIMP is not a very suitable tool for such a things since professional printers work better with vectors (at least if you e.g. need to print white). I also did TinTin stickers in the past. But in your use case wouldn't a tool like after effects be better for your purpose?!

    Retrobricker is rebuilding vintage Lego sets.

    Very nice sets! The good old days!

    SDCC exclusive minifigs question

    I'm pretty sure that anyone that knows something is under strict NDA. That's how things work...

    Reading that FAQ probably not, but they mention a new kind of lights: 88005. Promobricks even has an image: @Toxic43 you could do it the unconventional way, using a soldering iron, connecting two motors and use the other port for the LED. Not sure if the motor controller chip can handle the current from this two motors on one port though. @legotownlinz: you could with current PF and the light and sound system before that of course... As long as they have protection against too high currents... And they have I'm pretty sure seeing the circuit boards.
