  1. Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    Possibly, my theory on that, is that it is the same as the Avengers polybag; Avengers had 30612 'Quinjet', followed by 30304 'The Avengers Quinjet'. Guardians had 30449 'The Milano', followed by 30525 'The Guardian's Ship' 'Quinjet' for example at least had the term 'jet' in the name - but 'Milano' is not really associated with being a spaceship unless you are familiar with the series.

    It is very likely still the Milano - polybags often lack detailed names in order to be easily sold. Most kids will buy 'The Guardians Ship' from Infinity War while having no clue what The Milano is.

    I think it might be worth modifying the interior to include the table we saw Thor on in the trailers, would work better than having the Gauntlet stand when chances are you'll be displaying Thanos wearing the Gauntlet anyway.

    Ty. Think that means it should accommodate the Guardians then.

    Mind giving a link?

    Yeah, original idea of mine was going to be just using the Fire Mech as a basis and perhaps covering up the additional joint piece. Your workaround is definitely an improvement though and i have followed your design to incorporate something similar into the WIP revamp. Altered the design a bit and managed to incorporate the plating - it's turning out good so far, going for similar visuals at the moment but adding the articulation where i can. Arms are complete at this stage though currently based off the official design will be updating soon to improve the joints and potentially incorporate the Quake Mech style of arm connection. Crotch and most the legs is complete - already managed to include articulation to an extent of the knee's and hips (thanks to your help) Looking into the waist articulation next.

    Ah, never brought any of them and dont think i've seen reviews of them. Though yeah, i guess at least it has the rotating torso here.

    So; Leg Articulation Knee Articulation Shoulder pads Cover Technic pieces Scale issues with chest/head Colour scheme fixing Anyone else got any suggestions of improvements for the modification? Will probably set to work on it now and see how it goes (Some nice music for the project) :3
  9. Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    Negatives; I thought it would at least have knee articulation - but with no forwards/backward leg articulation, no knee articulation, all the Mech can do is stand straight or with legs apart and move it's arms. Why even bother with arm articulation if you cannot put the Mech into poses? You cannot accurately replicate any scene from the films because it cannot move it's legs. It just stands there with the option to raise or lower it's arms on joints that will weaken quickly because (as we know from Fire Mech) they cannot support the weight. The price is too high for what the set is, not counting the amount of pieces the mech is smaller than all others main Ninjago Movie Mechs released recently Head is too large/domed to replicate the Hulkbuster helmet which is less domed Tons of stickers - virtually no printed pieces other than the helmet from what i can see Unnecessary greebling, random tiny pieces all over the set, a majority dont really fit and seem like they would fall off. This coupled with unnecessary colours being thrown into the mix makes the design of the Hulkbuster look unfinished (probably the intention) but it's not something I'd want to display in its current state Jackhammer arm is not accurate, the movie version replaces the entire arm including an altered shoulder and altered designs of the entire arm Positives; I am surprised that we have a rotating torso. I think this is the first time a Lego Mech has had a rotating torso, though i may be wrong about that. The price to parts ratio sort of justifies it, but a majority of that is taken up with aspects of the set which are not needed such as the large unnecessary base. The coverage is also fairly good, the back of the hands require a little work but otherwise it seems good - i'd question how sturdy certain aspects are though and a few aspects feature exposed technic pieces that could probably be covered up easily Addition of a light brick is nice, but the set desperately needed more - the hands are clearly meant to include one given the design is sort of lacking around that area and it seems easy enough to swap out a brick for a light brick to give him repulsor hands Overall; I think combining aspects from Quake Mech, Fire Mech and UCS Hulkbuster could work quite well. In particular Quake Mech has a better arm connection method and Fire Mech has a better leg connection method enabling forward/backward articulation. I will be attempting this when i eventually get the set, but the price is still way too high to be a purchase without a promotion. I have VIP points enough to knock it down to a more reasonable £75 though so perhaps will pick up the set sooner just for the sake of modding it. Shall probably spend a while replicating it in LDD to get a sense of what would need to be altered to give such articulation.

    That Toy Fair version is a mess. It's built wrong, the main tower is missing a piece, it also has gained seemingly an extra tower on the side that is not in the final set along with some sort of gear feature, a place to hide what appears to be a prototype Mirror Of Erised and a different thicker base than the final product. Lego have definitely straight-up lied in the past. In this case however, i believe they had a new CEO recently, or at least someone directly involved in aspects such as this, who has decided to alter how Lego's marketing and PR works. Hence why the Marvel Superheroes theme has gotten pushed back from March 1st to March 3rd and we're not getting a VIP release for a D2C set in that theme - and why such a completely inaccurate set has turned up on display at Toy Fair despite us being shown the accurate version in a press release. The decision to show off the set was probably a decision made late in the process, perhaps the set was not completed at the time and they have desperately worked to assemble something similar to the final build to show off.

    The Whomping Willow itself could be attached to some form of base plate or connective build. Though the set could just include a separate segment of the Courtyard or some aspect of the set that can connect to the back of the Great Hall, The Willow itself could in theory then be placed anywhere. Either that or you have the option to alter the layout given the multiple connection points that the Great Hall has. As Mata_Nui says though, it may just be encouraging you to buy another set.
  13. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    I think Lego are working off this sort of layout. *Forgive the Pastboard link, Imgur is currently down and Eurobricks is not uploading images properly https://pasteboard.co/H7XZFPW.png Indigo - Great Hall & Tower, Basilisk Yellow - Dumbledore's Office, Greenhouse, Hagrids Hut, Courtyard for Quidditch Practice, Defense Against the Dark Arts room, Fluffy & Troll Red - Whomping Willow, Car Throw in the cheap Aragog set and that's basically all the main monsters
