  1. Some ideas for CMFs

    Agreed. Well said. As much as I like CMFs, I had no idea this was happening until... Thanks to you both for posting.
  2. Some ideas for CMFs

    HOW have I missed this topic until now?! Incredible work throughout. I still haven't viewed all the prior series, but what I've seen looks fantastic. From this series the French Queen is phenomenal. (You see, I have a *cough* somewhat large collection of ladies in printed dresses, and she is beautiful. ) Where can I find her? I must have her... Wow... I'm impressed. Two thumbs up!
  3. Lego themes that we need to be happen

    I've scrapped the ideas. Pirates can be another bland remake, and forget the other one altogether. I'd rather build than discuss anyway.
  4. On a deserted island

    Aha... the tale continues! And it sounds interesting... Neat build. Love that raft and the overall clean look.
  5. [SR - FB 3 Nov 2017] It's all about expertise

    Beautifully done with lots of good details, inside and out. I love that color scheme and the position by the pier looks great. And the minifigs look really good too, especially considering that it's a rendering. I live in the so-called "Moonshine Capital of the World" (look it up) and the remains of an '80s-era still can be found within walking distance of my house. A few illegal stills probably still operate, but legal micro-breweries are the latest rage. You've captured the basic look really well. Keep it up.
  6. MOC: Amethyst Tower

    That is one colorful, creative tower. It looks like the perfect play piece. And welcome to Eurobricks!
  7. The Greatest Pirate Set of all times! STAGE 2 GROUP 5

    Lagoon Lock-Up is such a classic... But I voted for the Advent Calendar. We need another! Every year! And sell it here in North America next time...
  8. Lego themes that we need to be happen

    Well... that's all a matter of opinion/personal interest. And this is about "wants," not "needs." Regarding movies vs books, I understand if a licensed theme is based strictly on the movie. But both my ideas were for non-licensed material, to allow TLG to design without those constraints. Besides, many licensed sets look only vaguely like the movie scenes, for piece count/price reasons. (Some are faithful designs, yes. Many aren't.) Treasure Island could be done very easily (in place of Pirates). Sleepy Hollow will never happen in specific "Legend of" form, so... I'll be quiet and go on.
  9. EB Members Title Archive

    Just call me "Goldfinger." Given by @Phred after I said the same thing about one of my builds that used nearly a thousand gold parts.
  10. Lego themes that we need to be happen

    Why couldn't it be a small theme? I'm talking about the original story. The book. Not some movie nonsense, and especially not Tim Burton's version. I think any set(s) would have to include the chase at the end of the story, and that includes 2 characters only. For sets, I was thinking the school where Ichabod taught, the van Tassel estate (where Katrina lived), the old church, and the chase to the bridge. I don't think it would be possible to represent the original story with a single set, unless it was the ball at the van Tassel estate and the midnight chase rolled into one. Lego showed it could do creative pirate-theme stuff with PotC (unlike the same-old Pirates sets of late), and a design ethic like that is what I'm imagining here.
  11. Londa, capital of Mardier

    Wow... that is impressive! Love that cobblestone technique, and the buildings look great, especially the big white one. Good selection of minifigs and everything looks really smooth and tidy. Good work.
  12. Eleanor / Shelby GT

    Lovely. You captured the overall look really well, especially considering the scale. Keep it up.
  13. Komatsu Forest America layout

    Excellent scene. The machinery all looks great. The trees might be a little too uniform but they still look pretty good. And I like the activity going on. Good work.
  14. [MOC] Art D├ęco Gas Station

    Fantastic. It doesn't even look like Lego at a glance. This would be a perfect set. I won't comment on every detail, but just spending a few minutes looking everything over, the one thing that really stands out is the lovely drill press in the back of the shop. Excellent work all around.
  15. [MOC] Fish&Sea Shop

    Beautiful. The amount of details throughout is excellent and I like the near mirror-image design of the two buildings. The roofs and chimneys turned out well and the interiors are nice. My favorite detail is the use of the light yellow Belle Brickheadz printed curved slope/skirt pieces - I bought a few copies of the set just to do that very thing! Excellent work.
