    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    The Overlord dragon is long overdue, and from the blurry picture my impression of it is quite good, except for the wings. Zane's mech looks pretty great, and I missed out on the original Deepstone Zane, so I'm glad he is included. I am most likely getting the Tournament of Elements set. I want my long awaited elemental masters, particularly Gravis, but the rest of the figure selection is rather good too! We've seen our fair share of dojo-type builds with basic construction, but this one has some neat details. I think the recoloured blade pack works even better than the original jade blades, thanks to the variety, and I hope the 2x6 banners and spell book are going to be prints. Also, I'm really excited for the anniversary robes! I've been a Ninjago fan since the first year and I have enjoyed collecting the ninja variants for many years, but I stopped around the Vermillion season, because after that the prints were either too modern, too simplified, or too inconsistent with each other for my taste, and the printing quality itself got worse. And sometimes the variants left a gap in the ninja line-up, big shame. But not this time, for this special occasion, it seems! Detailed, traditional-esque robes, relatively consistent with one another (I may replace the head garbs with hair or non-specific golden head garb), and the complete team as well, wonderful! Glad they are really putting effort in the celebration!

    @Bardan_Jusik Your random knights are really solid! Both blue knights have wonderful combos! If you improve your presentation, these are sure to gain the appreciation they deserve!

    Thanks! By the way, the other countries aren't correct either...

    [MOC/DIY] 14 Dots bracelet designs!

    @TheWarden If I'm home next weekend (student life..) I may have a look. My first thought goes out to droid arms with 1x2 modified plates with bars, but I don't know if that would be good enough to bridge over the area with the holes.

    [MOC/DIY] 14 Dots bracelet designs!

    Thank you, and thanks for the frontpage feature! Hadn't thought of making a name bracelet, great idea! Haha, yes I'd gladly sell it at that price! That's a great compliment, thanks a lot Ben! And have fun with making your own! Thanks! I haven't tested it because I have only one bracelet, but that should be possible if your wrist and arm is thin enough. I have two holes to spare if I'm wearing it around my wrist, so I have enough room to move it up my arm a bit (+- 6 cm). The strap is a little wider than a 2-wide plate, so when working with plates you will need to leave a one-stud offset. You could perhaps minimize the gap with clips and bars, I think. Thanks, Antha!

    Micro Ninjago (for ideas lol)

    I liked (and supported) the model for the Ideas project already, but this is just taking it to new heights! Awesome mini-models all around! The Borg Tower is a great eye-catcher, and I really like the Mountain of a Million Steps, cleverly shrouded in clouds, with the Monastery and Bounty, very iconic! Btw, are you on Flickr or Instagram? :)

    [MOC/DIY] 14 Dots bracelet designs!

    Thanks! Ah yes, that's a great example! Glad you lolled . Yes, I see a lot of potential outside of the Friends-esque colour palette of the current Dots sets. If we can have a crossover with Levi's, toen why not one with LEGO's popular themes, like Ninjago, or Star Wars?

    Anyone know if Double Vip applies to B&P orders?
  10. 14 Dots bracelet designs ideas! Wearable LEGO is one of those genres that I greatly admire, but never really got into because of the many challenges it poses for beginners... until now, that is! With the introduction of the Dots bracelet, it suddenly became a walk in the park! I ordered a versatile black bracelet and started experimenting right away when the package arrived. Join me while I show you a number of different ways to decorate the Dots bracelet! The royal one You'll certainly feel more important when wearing this one. Like a prince(ss), a king, a pharaoh... or maybe even Xerxes from the movie 300? Anyway, it feels good. Tip: your kids may be able to wear them around their ankles. I bet they'll love it! Textures & translucency Left: Before I moved on designs with prints and colours, I experimented with textured and translucent bricks. The one with the (clear) neon orange pyramids shines rather vividly by day, and I can imagine it must glow very nicely under blacklight as well. For a more punk or goth look, you could try the 1x1 pyramids in flat silver or black. Middle: The Infinity Bracelet! A subtle way to add some superhero/villain flair to your outfit. Alternatively, put some other 1x1 pieces on the jumper plates, like the pyramids, hearts or tooth plates. Right: Silver ingots create a nice stainless steel kind of pattern, but they come in many other colours too, such as elegant white, or regal gold. Flags & Affiliations This one is pretty clear right? From left to right: the Belgian, Luxembourgish and Hungarian flag. Jokes aside, it's pretty easy to make your country's flag if it's a horizontal or vertical tricolor. Americans may consider using this tile instead. Wearing a bracelet like this could be a way of displaying your patriotism, but I could also see it being useful in an international setting, like at Skearbaek, to see who you can have a conversation with in your mother tongue. Putting nations aside, it could perhaps also be a fun way to make distinct teams in a group activity. Before the event organisers among you start ordering bracelet straps in large quantities, I should note that the bracelet does not fit every adult's wrist. Let's hope larger sizes will get released soon! Tech devices Left: Is there anything cooler than a sci-fi gadget on your wrist? Pretend you came from the future, or some far corner of the universe, and that your spaceship is parked just around the corner! Middle: Space fans are cultists. Wear a wristband indicative of your faction (and urge others to do the same), to easily identify your allies! Right: Something to try at a convention, see if you can get people to fall for it. +10 points if a visitor asks what time it is. +100 points if it's actually close to 10:21 or 12:01! Fancy jewelry What use is a bracelet that doesn't make you look better? Whether you want to look elegant, classy, cute, or pretty, there are many printed tiles to choose from that will suit your look. This tile is also very nice, by the way. Be beautiful! On display What to do with a bracelet when you're not wearing it (for example, if you're already wearing one of the beautiful ones above ). Consider placing it in a dedicated display! All the more important if you wish to sell it, of course. _____ And that concludes my crash course decorating your Dots bracelet! Originally I was hoping to make this a guest contribution to New Elementary, but there were sufficient other Dots articles in the pipeline, so I just published these images over the course of a week on my Flickr, and thereafter I never really got to writing an actual article, until now. I hope you enjoyed, and be sure to share your own designs or ideas below! Have fun!

    Perhaps it's time I place an order... (I've managed to postpone it quite a few months )

    Lego Animals

    Mind if I bump this thread? I recently purchased CMF Dumbledore that comes with the phoenix. I'm so happy such an amazing fantasy creature has received a modern redesign! I love it! I grew up wanting the original one (from 2004 I believe), but of course it was sought after, and consequently: always expensive. Therefore, (and being not a particular Potter fan) I thoroughly appreciate the fact that the redesign is available at almost the lowest price point. Kudos to LEGO!

    [MOC] The MONT-BLANC massif

    I love LEGO and I love mountains, but a combination of the two is very rare. That makes your creation all the more impressive, amazing work! It's massive, it's beautiful, and the inclusion of the French-Italian border is a nice touch! Is this going to be on display in the Mt Blanc area somewhere? By the way, will you upload this to Flickr? I noticed your account hasn't been active for quite some years... Also, the link to it in your EB signature directs me back to this topic's page.

    LEGO Ideas Discussion

    Well, why would that be a bad thing? As with the Zelda projects, it serves as a constant reminder that people want a set based on that IP. If they really have trouble getting the licence, they could just change the IP status from 'Allowed' to 'Not allowed'.
