  1. Looks great! But does LEGO even consider ideas based on existing properties they have rights to?

    It's probably caused by very minor bowing on the long plates that the roof is comprised of. I added a couple additional smooth tiles with the single stud in the middle and it made mine sit flush. As a purist.... that double corrugated door MOD makes me cringe as the door within a door was shown being used by Sigourney Weaver's character when she first visited the firehouse HQ.

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Finally picked up the Shuttle Tydirium. No stores near me (SE PA) seem to ever clearance SW sets, so did the $82.80 price match at Target.

    The zombie tax driver is super stoked about the upcoming spiderman web warriors bridge duel set.

    Extremely disappointed in both of the new Batman sets. :(

    Will definitely get two (possibly three) bridge sets and combine like I did with the Avengers Tower and will get the ghost rider set as well. Not sure how I feel about the Doc Ock set yet.

    Definitely my favorite of the five new SH sets released on Jan 1st.

    I'm OK with the amount of stickers since there weren't any huge stickers like a UCS stand sticker or upcoming Batcave helipad duel huge stickers, but would have liked the ghostbuster logo tiles and firehouse in the very front to have been printed tiles especially since the Ecto 1 has printed logo pieces.

    Yes, I received two as well.
  10. Those Helipad stickers are intimidating just looking at them. As if applying the UCS display stand stickers were hard enough, now they want you to apply two of them and line them up.

    Finished the first box (numbered bags 1-3) and am amazed at how great even just the first floor looks all by itself. I've never built any of the modulars before so some of the techniques used that are familiar to others were new to me. I did get a little confused with the 1x2 small plates that are attached to the top of the windows and had to go back and fix that section when I was scratching my head trying to line up the rail pieces that go on top. Only nitpick so far is the use of stickers for pieces that I think should have been printed such as the 'firehouse' sticker in the front. Would have like to have been a nice printed tile. Would have liked to have had the ghostbuster logo tiles printed as well. Finally, anyone notice that in the box art/manual cover that the stickers are crooked such as the 'one way' sticker, the tiny sticker to the right of the main door, and the locker name stickers. Not sure if that was intentional or not.

    DC Superheroes 2016 - Rumors and Discussion

    I may be in the minority on this one but I have zero excitement regarding this set. If I'm going to pay $200-$350 for a set, I want to build something large and grand like previously mentioned sets the Sea Cow, Hellicarrier, Firehouse Headquarters and recent Star Wars UCS sets. Just looking at the video and pics, I'm left very underwhelmed when thinking of what I imagine a high priced set will look like when anticipating the reveal. Instead this feels like they decided to sell a bunch of small to medium sets as one giant set. If the actual set was just the Wayne Manor section and the Batmobile, i would have really been interested in the set if it was just a $100 set. But as someone else mentioned, the other two sections of the set seem like filler to justify the high price tag for collectors who want the mini figures and vehicles.

    Just picked this up. The box quality may be similar to very recent sets, but just compared to my boxes for the Sea Cow and Helicarrier and it's definitely lesser quality. Yes, it may have a glossy finish, but the thickness of the box for my other two large sets is much much sturdier.

    FYI.... Target has raised the online price of the Avenjet set to $59.99. However, when I was in Target (YMMV) this morning picking up a bluray, the sets in-store were still $49.99. Those still interested in this (and the Heroes of Justice) may want to make a trip to Target before the prices on both of these sets are changed in-store as well.

    [MOC]s - Star Wars REBELS Vehicles and other Creations

    I would love to see an MOC of the B-Wing prototype from SW Rebels.

    DC Superheroes 2016 - Rumors and Discussion

    Just built this set. Initially got one for my son when I was getting the Batwing set. Saw his after he built it and decided I needed one! My poor attempt at trying to make it look like the bat signal shining on a hovering superman. Also... This is the first time since I've been collecting the super hero sets based on their movie counterparts that I thoroughly enjoyed building all of the sets in the series when there were/are multiple sets released. It always seemed like there was at least a dud or two but not with the BvS sets.

    They are on Target.com. Just input Lego Super Heroes in Toys on their search function and all five of the new super hero sets will show up.

    Also picked up clash of heroes (my son) and sky high battle (me). My target didn't even take the new sets off the truck when we were there this morning. Had to go across the street to Toys R Us and price match target's $49.99 price. Was contemplating the Avenjet set also, but some a-hole took all six of the Avenjet sets while we were browsing. He also took the last 10 clash of heroes, but luckily my son had already grabbed his.

    I might be the last to know this, but I didn't realize the wings on the new Batwing fold upwards with a lever in the rear. At first, I wasn't that impressed with the preliminary pics of this set but after seeing how the wings fold in I'm now very impressed with the design. Can't wait til this shows up on shelves.

    Anyone near SE PA still looking for the Kryptonite Interception, I saw about six of them at the Neshaminy Target. They also had one of the new Marvel and new Nexo Knights as well.

    The brick built Ant Man looks great Another quinjet.... Hmnnnn Did they mix up the black panther and crossbones sets in the catalog? All three of these sets I'll definitely be picking up.

    Lol. Beat me to it. Read some comments about how bad the Avenjet in the set looks and was thinking it still looks much better than the actual Avenjet from the show itself.
  24. Hey everyone. Just started building some sets following a 6 month break after picking up a couple SW TFA sets and decided to re-visit one of my very first MOCS from a year ago. I widened the vehicle, streamlined the front and replaced push firing flick missiles with the new spring loaded missiles. Definitely happier with the final result as I had more parts to work with then just the basic pieces when I originally first built this Batmobile.
