  1. Is there any software (or multiple pieces of software) for importing a Bricklink Wanted List and finding the cheapest combination of stores to get all the parts from?

    LEGO Dimensions Physical Brick Discussion

    Looks like LEGO's answer to Skylanders with real LEGO toys. Will be another TT Games LEGO video game about a villain tearing rifts between the various LEGO worlds and kidnapping certain characters. Uses many licenses and themes, including The LEGO Movie (which makes some of the other licenses redundant), Lord of the Rings, DC Comics, Back to the Future, Ninjago and surprisingly, The Wizard of Oz.
  3. So I have a 2nd hand copy of Axonn that was initially incomplete, and I noticed that according to the Bricklink it had certain PLG parts that I may have had in FS. Now maybe the original owner just replaced missing parts with FS parts from the Toa Nuva or something, but looking at other inventories there's slight variation like this part actually in FS, including BrickOwl, which has several of the silver parts in alternate groups of FS and PLG. So maybe despite Bricklink not listing it, Axonn had alternate releases of the silvers? Also I may have a problem distinguishing PLG and certain FS that's like of cheaper production quality or something. Is it the mold patterns in the silver or something that can differentiate the two?

    LEGO Dimensions – Counting the LEGO Multiverse

    Looney Tunes and Tom & Jerry'd be great. We've only seen the former get some kind of representation through the Green Loontern character in one of the LEGO Batman games.
  5. I am fully aware that "importing" purchases from another country's iTunes store by making a second Apple account and using that country's gift cards goes against Apple's user agreement. "The Service is available to you only in the United Kingdom. You agree not to use or attempt to use the Service from outside this location. iTunes may use technologies to verify your compliance." So I'm wondering if it's worth the risk of getting my import account and purchases potentially removed after hypothetically pouring in a lot of money from gift cards because they found out. I've already been utilizing an American iTunes account but have only downloaded free things so far (for what it's worth, I only intend to download shows I can't purchase elsewhere, including in my own country's iTunes), and have recently updated my iTunes. The purchases fall into the same library as my own country's. And it'd also be nice to know what technologies, if any, are actually used to detect this importing.

    Is "importing" on iTunes worth the risk of removal?

    I'm a little afraid to essentially say "how can you tell if I've done this terms-breaking action" with an a precious purchase-filled Apple account. Unfortunately, where else can I legally purchase non-physically released shows and movies without weird offline viewing restrictions or relation to a Playstation console I don't own?
  7. Not much else to say but, simply asking whether The LEGO Movie's Target-released "Special Special Editon" Blu-ray is region locked to Region A or also playable on Region B and C. DVD Compare lists it as just Region A: http://www.dvdcompare.net/comparisons/film.php?fid=27989
  8. Can anyone actually confirm if LEGO destroys their old, unused molds or not? It's been allegedly stated that like, BIONICLE's old molds no longer exist but it'd be pretty stupid for LEGO to just destroy molds when they don't know what they'll need in the future, as well as be against the entire concept of LEGO to just permanently discontinue parts. I also remember when talking of the Ideas space suit thing being redesigned, they may have mentioned molds LEGO didn't have or use anymore.

    Does LEGO actually destroy their molds or not?

    So it'd still be considered the same part despite it being a different mold, like how LEGO have changed some of their colours in 2004 but still refer to them as the same colour?

    Does LEGO actually destroy their molds or not?

    So is it virtually impossible to reprint a part after its mold is destroyed?

    Aardman Animations LEGO adverts?

    One of the many companies Aardman Animations (the studio behind Wallace & Gromit and Creature Comforts) have made adverts for is LEGO. What is uploaded on YouTube by the Hall of Advertising channel is one advert done for Train... And one very impressive advert done for Pirates... But also, my Creating 3-D Animation book mentions a spaceman advert Aardman made that was similar to the Pirates one. I looked it up and yes, I found a Space advert with the same construction characters (2:30): But I've also seen listed in an interview a mention of producing advertising for LEGO Star Wars. This interview came out before Chicken Run and LEGO Star Wars came out in 1999 so it must have been in the franchises early years. http://www.telepathy.co.uk/aardman/culture/faqs.html Does anyone know of some early LEGO Star Wars advert with stop-motion in it?

    Long time since this topic has been updated but might as well share this commercial that I think was the LEGO Star Wars one they were referring to: (Alt version)

    Why is the Series 1 Zombie so expensive?

    Maybe it's because Series 1/2 of the minifigures were more limited than the rest, maybe it's because it was an army builder, but why is it that can't find one of these online without paying around £10?

    Disney Collectible Minifigures Series 1 Discussion

    Is that true information? Because if so, I wonder how much of the classic Toy Story LEGO would be reused and also it'd be kinda neat to see new Toy Story LEGO. Maybe also some Monsters Inc. LEGO, as I see some PIXAR franchises would have trouble fitting into the minifigure type.

    Disney Collectible Minifigures Series 1 Discussion

    Wow, wonder when LEGO is going to run out of dream licenses to actually make! Finally a (potentially) more thorough LEGO-isation of Disney! While the two extra figures are a bit inexplicable, I'll allow it if it means more Disney figures. Makes me wonder how they're going to compare to the previous Fabuland/DUPLO/Minidoll figures if they decide to do Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh or Princess. And while Marvel, Star Wars and even Muppets sound a bit too far away to be put in a "Disney" series, I have to wonder if PIXAR figures will go in, and what they'll do with characters already touched like those from Toy Story. But if it were to take a "Mickey and Friends" approach then here are my guesses... 1. Mickey Mouse with Pluto 2. Minnie Mouse 3. Donald Duck 4. Daisy Duck 5. Goofy 6. Pete 7. Huey 8. Dewey 9. Louie 10. Scrooge McDuck 11. Max Goof 12. Oswald the Lucky Rabbit 13. Chip (Green Army Men deal) 14. Dale 15. Clarabelle Cow 16. Horace Horsecollar 17. Ludwig Von Drake 18. Roger Rabbit

    Don't forget this ad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqp52flP9d4 There's also been those Technic commercials where Technic products show up in other themes like BIONICLE (G2) and TLM.

    Also, apparently HAL 9000 makes an appearance in LEGO Dimensions. And seeing how we are not updated with it, the next video in the passed around box story has... Alison Brie, the voice actress of Unikitty.

    Where's the LEGO Ideas Doctor Who set?

    Though we've seen him in Dimensions by now, where is the Ideas set we were promised? Are they holding it off until after Dimensions or something?

    I so want there to be some kind of call back or reference between Batman and Scooby-Doo characters to their previous crossovers...

    Rediscoverd "Inspired by BIONICLE" Combiners

    Rediscoverd "Inspired by BIONICLE" Combiners

    Since I already posted about this twice on BZPower, I might as well also post it here. One of the many wacky foreign and non-canon combiners G1 of BIONICLE had was this often liked diddy that mixes together the blue, red and black Rahkshi into one staff wielding warrior. What you may not know is that there were apparently other models that came from the same Brickshelf gallery it came from that were not used in the (Western, at least) LEGO magazine it appeared in. These are more... out there, to say the least. And when asked if they should also be include in the alternate model database back in October, Volitak_Boxor said no because they weren't, to out knowledge, LEGO-sanctioned like the Japanese model was. Until now... While browsing on Google, I came across this old BZPower news archive page that shows the picture of one of the combiners and lists it as being one of four "Inspired by BIONICLE" creations available on BIONICLE.com's Builder's Section without instructions but rather a single image, and also that they weren't seen on the LEGO Club website. So I went through the Wayback Machine for the Builder's Section page around this date and did indeed find four "Inspiration Models" without images saved. And clicking for a close-up gave more information. "Inspirational Model #1" uses Turahk, Vorahk & Guurahk so it matches the magazine-published combiner and states "Tip: Use the Rahkshi shoulder parts to create the body of this imposing character.". "Inspirational Model #2" uses Panrahk, Kurahk & Lerahk so it matches the BZPower listed image's combiner and states "Tip: Use Rahkshi back parts to create the long arms. Remember that good balance is the most important part of this model!". "Inspirational Model #3" uses Onua Nuva, Pahrak-Kal, Pohatu Nuva & Nuhvok-Kal so it must be the duo combiner and states "Tip: Using Onua Nuva and Pahrak-Kal, you can create the silver version of this Ape-like creature. By combining Pohatu Nuva and Nuhvok-Kal, you can also create his golden-faced twin!". And "Inspirational Model #4" uses Tahu Nuva and Kohrak-Kal so it must be the remaining combiner and states "Tip: Combine the various limbs of both Tahu Nuva and Kohrak-Kal to create extra-long legs!". So in terms of obscure and goofy, but LEGO-sanctioned combiners, we can also now add these guys to the continually growing list.
