  1. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    For the last few years, 10179 has been a set to build. I think the many AFOLs who paid 'dearly' for this one to build are the people who will be getting hit hard. Hopefully, it won't be another 10188 - 75159 remake debacle.
  2. My attempt at a 10179 UCS Millennium Falcon!

    Separate by color. Place 2-4 large bins. Then stack all exact bricks together (e.g. Connect all 2x4 light grey bricks together, all 1x6 plates in a 1 stud staggered approach). This all will help you find elements faster. I also found using the building directions on my laptop and iPad easier than the actual printed version.

    i found these. https://www.yahoo.co...6479935332.html http://www.starwars....ered-by-verizon note: updated my post below for the youtube link.
  5. looks great. i would go with Larry the Barista's hair since it resembles the look of charlie cox. lets hope lego comes out with a daredevil minifig :)
  6. 10027 train shed.

    hi david, lego hadn't done a shed of this quality although (as others posted, many MOCs exist. i was lucky to buy one off ebay 5 months ago for $200 (used but still in the box with the instructions) the "Yellow Minifig, Utensil Hand Truck" can cost up to $20. the 2 "Light Gray Door 1 x 4 x 5 Right with Trans-Black Glass" will cost over $20 each. bricklinking (used elements) the rest of the set w/o instructions will run about $150 before postage. might be good to wait for a good deal on bricklink or ebay since you will porb need to use many sellers.
  7. UCS Sandcrawler Plaque

    looks good. i ordered 1 of these custom stickers myself (ebay) and plan to do something similar either using the UCS R2 or 10179 MF as the template for my plaque.
  8. [MOC] Battle of Hoth

    Love this pic. It really gives your MOC scale since 10179 is included. How did you add the lights to 10179?
  9. LEGO The Simpsons Kwik-E-Mart review!

    Great review.
  10. New Parent/AFOL -- What is a good deal?

    Sound advice for the new member. Depending on location, 20% is a great starting point for discounts. Everyone now and again, retailers will offer BOGOs to get the overall discount into the 30%s and into the 40%s if the sets are already reduced prior to the BOGO. Exclusives (at least in the US) is seldom discounted anymore so using Amazon points, eBay bucks, shop@home points etc... is one way to create your own discount. Selling Lego after EOL can be risky . You have refreshes to worry about, missing elements, condition, the manual, picking the right sets, etc... However, I found selling sets my son and I don't want anymore is a wonderful way to roll the profits into "dream sets" like 10196,10181, etc... I always advise folks to buy what you want to build and think about the selling as an afterthought.
  11. Slave I Retrospective and UCS Comparison

    Thank you. No rush as I'm alos out of town and know it's a lot of work.
  12. Slave I Retrospective and UCS Comparison

    My first Eurobricks post. ZCerberus, this comparison / review is awesome! Very impressive. Quality content and pictures. On top of that, you built custom / MOC stands for the non-UCS models. Great work! Your review also reiterated my thoughts about 8097. The UCS version made me appreciate it even more. Getting back to the stands, I would like to put my son's 8087 on that stand. Can you share the elements used?
