    [MOC] - Temple Arch

    Wow the texture pops. Great part usage!
  2. I wanted to do a "cozy" Harry Potter MOC and thought his Gryffindor bedroom would be a good topic. Played around with the idea of doing a full 360 build that opens, and including Seamus and Dean's beds as well. But each bed section is fairly repetitive so I decided to just cover Neville, Harry, and Ron's areas as well as the entrance and a fireplace. The fireplace may be a bit controversial vs the source material, I don't think any is visible in the films but I have a vague memory of a mention of a hearth within the bedrooms in one of the books. Canon or not, I think it helps give the right vibe to the build. Appreciate any comments, enjoy! Not much attention was placed on the look of the outside, but here's what it's like:

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    It is not a leak, I don't have inside info. Just analysis of the situation. Probably we would know by now, but I wouldn't count this year out completely. January is the latest we should see another wave. I don't think anyone needs to worry that we won't get an official young Dumbledore in a widely available set.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    There will be another wave of sets for this fall's film. Probably close to the films release. The sets August 1st are just 1 set to encompass the first FB and 1 set as a teaser for 2nd FB. There is no way they went to the trouble to relaunch the "Wizarding World" to make only 1 set for a new movie in that theme.

    [MOC] Battle of Sphacteria 425 BC

    Yep, but it pales in comparison to this.

    FYI the Berserker Bomber and Tech Wizard Showdown are already 20% off on Amazon in the US. Seems fast to me. I took the chance to get the berserker and am just waiting on the twinfector to go down.

    [MOC] Mirtrum castle

    Awesome! NPU and the "organic" looking placement of the houses and castle is well done.

    [MOC] ROME Theme

    Thanks everyone! Well this is actually from the back, but shows the roof is just plates attached with a hinge, very simple. I use a continuous hinge made with clips since the click version is limiting on angles. Those shields came with the series 5 roman soldiers, I am using series 10 roman soldiers which only had a sword and cape. I actually quite like those shields, but only got a couple of them after I made these builds, they are expensive these days since they were from an early CMF series.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Those rumors are rather far fetched. It is a weird selection of sets. And while a plastic suitcase to store brick built beasts is certainly possible, a brick built suitcase seems like it would be excessively repetitive and expensive.

    2018 Creator Sets

    Well the pirate rollercoaster looks amazing and around $100 seems right. I hope we see a bunch of unique homages to the 60 year heritage throughout the year.

    Elves Autumn Animals Winners!

    Thanks Peppermint_M and everyone who participated. I'm honored to make the top 4. It was a hard choice, but I think I'll take the Earth tag.

    [MOC] ROME Theme

    Thanks for the many kind comments and the inspiration! I had not seen those. I referred to this illustration when building: Thank you! Its true I probably should use some strategic dark tan. Mostly though I used the masonry bricks to represent damaged or underlying stone (except the pattern along the base of the arena wall). Also the arena floor being dark tan is supposed to be dirty. The forum I think should be very well maintained and not having any random wear or exposed masonry.

    [MOC] ROME Theme

    One of my hopes for LEGO since I came out of my dark age was to see an ancient Rome or Greece based theme. In the absence of that I decided to make a small theme of my own. To match LEGO's typical conflict based approach to most themes, I used the Visigoths as the enemy of Rome. These are the sets: Roman Battle Pack Visigoth Battle Pack Chariot Attack Visigoth Outpost Gladiator Arena Roman Forum My favorites are probably Chariot Attack and Gladiator Arena. Things I am not satisfied with is the representation of Roman civilians, and the monochromatic quality of the Roman forum. Hopefully we'll see an official theme some day that does a good job of representing this topic! Here are the detailed pictures: 1) Roman Battle Pack 2) Visigoth Battle Pack 3) Chariot Attack 4) Visigoth Outpost 5) Gladiator Arena 6) Roman Forum
  14. Clever idea and nice details overall!

    LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    I wish the little technobiter ship in Axel's tank set was a polybag. The look from the back is very poor, overall I don't think I'd buy that set. The 3 small sets of this wave are excellent though.
