    LEGO Monkie Kid 2020

    LEGO has always been for a large part about vehicles. Parents love to give their kid, or that of someone else, a vehicle because anything that can be rolled or flown around can be played with. I do think that since I was young (Adventurers era) there has been a shift towards more vehicles and less buildings. Maybe in a present where LEGO faces a lot of competition from video games, with their dynamic and immersive open-world play environments, a LEGO building appears even more static than it used to. Not to mention, for the money of a typical medium to larger sized LEGO building, you can buy almost any game with a world map so huge that you wouldn't be able to recreate it in minifig scale even with a 10,000 dollar/euro budget! Kind of a discouraging thought, really. That said.. I am the grown up boy that still dreams of building a huuuge city (medieval or otherwise), the kid that always wanted to build buildings and landscapes but had to make due with the vehicles that he was given. TL;DR yes, more buildings please!

    It's a thing of beauty, I think that's hard to deny for anyone! The price is not for my wallet, and I will leave the judging of the functionality to others. The 18+ box art though.... I get why... but I dislike it, at least the lower part with the bricks. I hope they phase out that styling rather sooner than later, even if that's a minor thing compared to the contents of the set.
  3. Breaking news: the hat with ears used for Christmas elves appears with fleshie ears in the new Friends Advent calendar!! Seen in this pic (SPOILER for advent calendar enthousiasts!): Also, the Harry Potter calendar includes a trans (glitter?) clear flame piece, the old school one: So that's one more flame piece recoloured this year! Btw, those Monkie Kid villains look really good, love the orange and blue ogres!!

    I thought that would be the case, and if I recall correctly that particular creation was part of your epic army of entries for the CCC; writing GoH backstories for all of that is no small task! I forgot to look at the tags for cases of doubt, good tip!

    Just wanted to let you all know that I've been doing some cleaning in the GoH Flickr group since becoming a mod a few weeks ago. I have removed a (few?) hundred photos unrelated to our beloved role build game, so up to page 12 should now be a full GoH browsing experience! In cases of doubt I have not removed the picture from the group. As a general advice, adding 'GoH' or a geographical name from GoH to the title of your photo sure helps, as well as the GoH emblem for on the photo itself. Example of a typical case of doubt: CCC XVI: Forestmen Hideout by Isaac Snyder, on Flickr Generic name, no mention of anything GoH, no emblem... @soccerkid6 We're all friends here, no worries! @ZCerberus could you maybe add the GoH emblem as the image for the group?

    MOC: Offshore Meeting Place

    First of all, I Iike the idea of a sea hangout! I spot a lot of interesting parts use, too. Those 'power splat' pieces for seaweed are cool (even if the colour is a bit off), I like the use of printed parts to create the huge race arcade machine, and those printed lattice windows seem too be made for this kind of maritime cottage, especially with the VW curtains behind them! On the whole, the cottage looks great, with a nicely shaped roof! The boardwalk feels a bit messy to me, though. Most importantly, I think the groove with plants is out of place: I don't see why there would be need to be a groove there, and even so, why the owner of the place wouldn't remove those plants. Having the plants for decoration in baskets looks more tidy for sure. My second (and final) point of criticism: imho, the dark red is just a bit too much for the colour scheme to handle, I probably would have chosen a (dark) colour that already appears in your build somewhere, like reddish brown, black or dark green. Overall, though, this is a great build!

    Now that's a beautiful arrangement! Also took me a moment to figure out what the heck that pink piece is, but it's the head of the Ninjago video game wave baddies. Also, forgot to mention: my order from a few weeks back was missing a torso, they sent me that one plus the employee mailed me she had added "a surprise" to the order. It turned out to be a Ninjago Nya keychain! I'm not big on keychains, but I am big on Ninjago! I'm wondering if they can see that through my previous orders, or if it was just a safe decision?

    Cool, good chance that it will show up in BAM soon, then.

    Perhaps they still don't like sets that are tied to a real-world region? Europe has global appeal, judging by the masses of tourists from Asia and America that come here every year, so that shouldn't be the problem. A bit disappointed too, though the sailboat is also cool, especially if they include moulded animals. That would also help set it apart from boats in the Creator line. That's very much possible. @Presidentpie3 @CharlieBoy17 There are rules regarding self-promotion, just saying...
