  1. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    The fact that it was sold out before Oct 1 launch tells me that the demand was greater than they realized. The current number of sets over the $100 mark on the market right now seems higher than usual - people aren't afraid to spend money on large sets. I didn't mean to come off so whiny, fellas. I do, however, work in chemical manufacturing and have an idea of how production works and allocating resources ;)
  2. 75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017 MOD/MOC

    I got the Lego 2017 Holiday Catalog in the mail today. 75192 Millennium Falcon was completely omit from it. I'm not expecting it to be available again until 2018. How possibly hard can it be to ramp up production for a particular set!?

  4. RC Dodge Challenger SXT

    This is a fantastic rendition of the new challenger !!! :D
  5. I changed my mind. I saw this beast at the Lego store in San Jose, and I must have it https://ibb.co/e9ntgv https://ibb.co/evhXrv https://ibb.co/cFUqda Interestingly, the employee said that Lego shipped it to them prebuilt.
  6. That's a lot of money for a lot of grey pieces. I look at it like this - I could buy 2 Ninjago cities, have $200 in my back pocket, and have 9,800 (versus 7,500) much more interesting/colored parts. (One model for display, one for parts pack) If one looks at it from a pure PPP ratio, this is not a great deal. Just because it says "Star Wars" on it does not mean I should pay a ridiculous premium for licencing. Aesthetical, IMO, the MF is just an ugly ship, compared to the rest of SW vehicles. The B-wing might be a bunch of grey pieces too, but it's a more interesting design. This is also too massive to display, unless one has a dedicated Lego room. It's 2 feet wide and 3 feet long. I don't, and that reason alone makes this an easy decision.
  7. LEGO Ninjago 2017 Discussion

    I do not care for Ninjago whatsoever, but the designers did a good job of making this set appealing regardless. Day one buy, I'm looking forward to displaying this masterpiece

    UCS Snowspeeder is great model and worthy of the UCS badge (unlike insult on Hoth.) Couple of comments; 1. Very fragile, especially because of the ball joints and rubber bands providing tension for the bottom of the wings. Definitely not swooshable because there's really no great way of holding it. Patience must be exercised during build 2. EDIT: I made a huge mistake here and forgot to push 2 pins in. Still a little wobbly, but much more supportive now..oops lol. The base is complete garbage a does not provide adequate support, and is extremely wobbly. Too top heavy, it leans a good 10 degrees to the right. Tomorrow's project will be building better support stand for the Snowspeeder UCS millennium falcon is happening

    UCS Snowspeeder already on backorder at S@H. I hope there's not a bunch of lame resellers in line at my lego store this morning buying multiples :l Edit: nevermind, they are limiting it to 1 per customer
  10. [MOC] Peterbilt 379 & Polar Tanker (1:13)

    This is the coolest, most realistic model I have seen in a long time. Fantastic job! Not a stud in sight :D
  11. [REVIEW] 75144 - UCS Snowspeeder

    Fantastic review. Day 1 purchase for me! Which, according to my Lego store, there is no early release anymore and will not be sold until May 4 :( Edit: I'm going to be really tempted to leave the white sticker off the side cockpit windows. I'm envisioning it looking slightly better.
  12. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I'm excited, it's a very iconic star wars ship and nice for those of us that missed out on the first UCS version, and is a very nice display piece. As some have said, the The excessive amount of stickers don't really bother me.. it's been the norm for a decade now. Printed would be nice, but it's hard to justify making so many exclusive printed pieces just for one set if you're a Lego executive, I'd imagine. I'll be calling my local Lego store every day the week before launch, as they typically get these sets in early :)

    I'm really bummed we didn't see 75144 ucs snowspeeder at the toy fair. What gives, lego?
  14. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Slave 1 was decent, no? and with the b-wing, they are two of my favorites :) lol
  15. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I really like the new UCS snowspeeder, it's much more detailed than 10129 and a nice update. I'll surely pick it up day 1 and have to fit it in my fleet :D Hard to tell from the impartial box shot, but I hope it comes with a pilot next to the plaque
