  1. That glass piece has been available for months in both the Riddler Riddle Racer and one of the brick boxes.
  2. LEGO Ideas Discussion

    Looking at the other sets I can see why Blues Brothers got rejected (too adult), Sega Arcades (too niche a product and also requires licensing that might be a pain to obtain), Quest Builder (they already tried something a little similar to this with Heroica and that didn't sell), Red Arrows Hawk (they have any number of jets like that already including an "airshow jet" in City 2018), Venetian Houses (too niche, a bit on the large side and competes with the modulars and Creator building sets), Jeep (they already have a relationship with Fiat Chrysler through their Ferrari deal and any Jeep would come that way), The Office (a bit adult and not popular enough with the audience for LEGO), Power Rangers (they are doing Voltron already so it makes no sense to also do Power Rangers), Surf Rescue (conflicts with Fun at the Beach) and Windmill (too large and detailed). The light cycle goes straight on the "shut up and take my money" list for me though. I wonder what piece they will use for the helmet since I dont think the standard motorcycle helmet works for the characters in the film. This helmet https://brickset.com/parts/6097145/mini-fig-helmet-no-63 in black and trans-blue could work maybe?
  3. REVIEW: 70922 The Joker Manor

    I am not particularly a Batman guy but there are so many great parts and details in this set that I sorta want one (whether I can afford it is another matter :) I do hope the roller coaster parts get used in a Creator Expert roller coaster in 2018, that would be "shut up and take my money" territory for me.
  4. 2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    So many great things in these new sets. Looks like I might end up spending more on City 2018 than I thought I would...\ I already knew I wanted the police station since I collect police stations but now I want that mine as well. That rescue helicopter reminds me a lot of the rescue helicopters we have in Australia which have the same red and yellow color scheme and that oversized RV looks neat also. Even the helicopter transport is cool with the red wheels (not seen in a long time) And of course I will be buying both the Mining and Police starter sets. Is it just me or does it seem like there are less sets at the cheaper price points in 2018? In particular there seems to be no vehicle sets at the size/price point of this years Race Plane, Buggy and Stunt Truck that I can see and few at the size/price point of things like the Pizza Van/Fishing Boat.
  5. 2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Do we get a "Mountain Police Starter Pack" for 2017 as with the various starter packs of previous years?
  6. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The pixelation from around the numbers looks like its an artifact caused by the combination of a crappy camera and the JPEG compression process. As a huge fan of Art Deco, I LOVE this and want one. The pink car (what with the fins and guitar) is probably a nod to Elvis and his pink Cadillac. I wonder if there will be a jukebox inside the diner, it would fit so well with what they seem to be aiming for...
  7. None of the stuff I have been waiting for (parts from the City Jungle sets for example) has shown up yet...
  8. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    NinjaGo City is on my wish-list, I just dont have a spare $500 to buy one right now...
  9. Survey: New parts and new colors

    I want the long whip antenna in trans-yellow.
  10. Can anyone tell me how I can place tiles in the gap between a brick and a 1 x 2 x 1 panel in the way TLG did with the tiles in the waiting room of the Assembly Square dentist office (there is a 2 x 2 newspaper tile and a 1 x 2 friends tile and a black 1 x 2 x 1 panel involved) Is it even possible? Do I need to manually edit the lxf file?
  11. [MOC] Gold Coast G:Link Bombardier Flexity 2

    This is amazing, much better than my pathetic attempt at a G:Link tram from a while back. Even cooler is the relationship with the people behind the real vehicle and the photos showing the vehicle next to the real thing.
  12. Creator and Creator expert wishlist

    I would love to see more bridges. They did the Tower Bridge as a set, how about other famous bridges from other cities? The Sydney Harbor Bridge would make a great set and I would buy one no question. The Golden Gate Bridge could also make a great set.
  13. Survey: New parts and new colors

    Hopefully that black piece becomes available on Bricks & Pieces soon, then anyone can get a whole bunch of them easily :)
  14. I suspect I dont need the super-expensive lights the photo gear shops wanted to sell me and some cheaper lighting from elsewhere would be OK even if its not specifically for photography. Is there any particular color temperature/type of light that works best for reproducing LEGO colors accurately? I will ask the guy in our club who built the Ecto-1 Ideas set how he takes his photos, he may have some tips for me :)
  15. My current camera is a Canon PowerShot SX 120 IS point and shoot, hopefully that will be good enough. As for a setup, I dont own a light box/light tent (and dont have the budget for one) nor do I have any kind of lights (and after seeing the eye-watering prices a couple photo gear shops wanted to charge, I dont think I can afford those either) And yes I want to make the photos of my bus project as good as possible to increase the chances of getting the votes :)
