  1. What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Got a TIE Striker and the Old Fishing Hut ... and won't buy the UCS Falcon.
  2. Colourful hidden parts

    I knew that might has happened before .. I did not go back in time for so long ... Sorry for that.
  3. Colourful hidden parts

    Hello everybody, I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but there is one thing that is really ... strange in the newer Lego sets. My dark age is over for almost four years now. One of the first sets I built was the UCS R2-D2 and I was wondering about those few colourful parts (green, yellow, red, ...) which were needed but are not seen in the final model. I know, they might be a help for the kids but ... I grew up with the good old "LL 928" and the large technic car. You know, that black thing with the red seats and the boxer engine in the back? There were no colored parts to help you. It was hard to have a handful of grey parts and to find their place in the model. Why are they doing this? Are the kids of today too stupid to buildt those models? Greetings

  6. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Somebody mentioned it before: I do not understand all that hype about an UCS MF ... spending estimated 600 or more EUR/$/whatever on a LEGO set ... Nop, not for me. I hope that it will be published soon - if the rumours are real
  7. Rogue One Transport Ship MOC

    Really cool. Just one remark: I may be wrong but do the wings go further down in flight mode? Or is it already possible for your son (swoosh-factor) and it is not shown due to a stand?
