  4. I think unfortunately places like Eurobricks are going to slowly fade away. Apart from a few core areas, I see comments and intelligent conversation are dying out. Which is a pity, because it has always been one of the friendliest places on the web. On the related topic, I have to say I agreed with the reaction to the poster who said they hated the brick helmets. I think it was a response to the endless negativity. Sort of the straw that broke the camel's back. If I like Lego, or Bach or Pink Floyd, I don't want to log on to a forum and see endless criticism of my hobby. Even if a Lego set is not spectacularly brilliant, I don't personally want to see it torn to shreds. I'd prefer people to find the positives in it within reason...

    MOC: Arrivals Hall IDLEBRICK AIRPORT

    The map of the world on its own is already a better MOC than most people will make in their lifetime. Love the wall the map hangs on too. The whole model is just great. The retro feeling is spot on.

    Thomas the Tank Engine and The Lego Group

    Well, obviously the only real Thomas medium that counts (!) is the original 1940s books, which we grew up on at home and are still in my parents house I think...

    [MOC] Building Other Album Covers

    Number 5: Pearl Jam - Ten Lego; Original LP; Original CD; When I started this, I intended to make the CD cover version. The one with just the arms. But I discovered two profound enemies of Lego building. One, is trying to do a specific font. I had to make the white letters so big to make them look reasonable, that it pushed the whole thing to be about 300mm. Second is accurate human anatomy. Minifigure arms are just so short! I even tried brick building the whole collection of arms in black, and though the silhouette shape was perfect, the lack of colour variations for hands and sleeves just looked wrong. So I ended up with this hybrid between the LP and CD cover, with some minifigures of the band just doing their own thing. 🙂 Edit: will include brick built arms version here now;

    LEGO IDEAS- Winnie the Pooh

    The books and the EH Shepard illustrations are just absolutely, perfectly brilliant. I could read them every day for the rest of my life. That said, I don't know how you could translate those drawings into Lego. I suppose it will be some sort of Disney-fied version. Maybe it will be great, but...

    Could you pick something harder, please, lol? (Actually, someone suggested 'In The Court of The Crimson King'!) I will try and keep going, thank you. Thanks so much. Yes, the R took me about two days! And the black hand, well spotted, I don't know where her hand is in the original picture! Is it in her pocket? Is she lying on it? There's great stuff on all Aimee's records. 'Smilers' is my favourite at the moment.
