    Just did a quick search-by-word sampling in the comment section of the announcement. I did not look at all comments, but a fair number. "Castle" was mentioned ~70 times, The Office and Chitty ~30 times, Metroid ~25 times, and everything else was below 20. Even with the 3-in-1 Creator castle, I still think there are still loads of AFOLs out there willing to spend big money on an even larger and (much) more detailed castle set, but the big question is if LEGO will see it that way too. I really don't know about those other empirically popular projects. I personally see Tutankhamen as very appealing project, clearly it's own unique thing, yet in line with trends such as growing quantities of 'premium' parts per set, and the bustes collection. However, very few are talking about that one, so again we'll have to see. Just some random observations: the new smaller road plate appears in azure in the City wildlife sets, so the Bike Lanes project could soon be built in real life. Also, remember the Aquarium project from a while back, which many people here saw as a likely candidate to become a set? The Creator 3-in-1 aquarium must have prevented that one, or partly.
  2. Unseen prototype footage!! Get it here, while it's hot! If you were hesitation, planning, contemplating, or procrastinating to support my project, I urge you to make up your mind quickly: just over 20 days left until the milestone deadline! While you're here though, I hope you enjoy this little insight into the development of the Forbidden Valley submodel. C&C appreciated! If you want to know more about the background and current status of the project, visit the update page. Cheers!

    Sure is. :) The face on the ship: https://cdn-eu.anidb.net/images/main/16087.jpg As well as the face on Zane's mech's torso: But there's no denying he mixed Bionicle in that sketch.

    Lego Animals

    Animals are entering the Lego System as if it's the Cambrian Explosion! ;) The city theme is going wild! Haha, get it? Enough joking, let's see what we got: Elephant! Elephant young Male lion (tan with brown manes) Male lion (white with tan manes) Lion cub (tan) Lion cub (white) Small monkey (dark tan with tan face) Small monkey (tan with dbg face) Large snake (a recolour of the HP snake?) Vulture (recolour of the bald eagle?) Sheep!! Ray (recolour in the ninjago wave) Furthermore, new brickbuilt creatures with molded parts: Cerberus (HP) Basilisk (HP) Jungle dragon, water dragon, fire dragon, Overlord dragon (Ninjago) I'm not really keeping count of the animals in the minidoll lines, but Disney: Raya The Last Dragon set feature multiple new animals too!
  5. Well, the previously released red wings were a bit small, these new ones are more impressive. Now you can diversify your army because both pieces come in red, or even do scenes with juvenile vs adult demons/dragons. Also, I very much welcome that female vampire head!

    [MOC] Epic Subway Saxophone Battle

    Thanks guys! Haha, yeah minifigs are pretty horribly proportioned for scaled builds, aren't they? Thanks, and good suggestion! Thank you, I really appreciate it!

    Guys, is it really that hard to keep show discussion in the show discussion thread?? Sorry, but I'm here to read the set discussion.
  8. Hi! This is my first post in the Trains sub-forum (comments aside). I'm here to share my latest MOC: the Epic Subway Saxophone Battle! One warning, though: this was built as a lively interior first, and a train second. I'll go further into the specifics of that later, but first let's see the build. At times, pretty weird and amazing things happen on the subway. With many different people on the move for many different reasons, briefly sharing the same space, it's a game of chance until the next encounter between strangers leading to an unexpected scene! I was inspired to build this after watching the 2013 viral video "Two Total Strangers Have Saxophone Battle On NYC Subway Train". I built it as an entry to the IDEAS LEGO House contest, category "Minifigure". The premise of this category was to create a fun or whacky minifigure vignette, no larger than 64x32 studs. I built two subway cars with minus one wall and the roof, to show the interior. The base of the build measures 62x10 studs, the cars are built on a 29x10 studs platform wide. Since the 8x16 straight train tracks have a slight overhang, I couldn't use four of them for this entry (maybe diagonal). Three, on the other hand, would be too short. Another issue I had with these is that they were a bit warped, making the cars look a bit wonky. I solved both problems by using 15 8x4 flexible rail pieces. As for the proportions and lay-out... I have taken a lot of uneducated decisions here.😬 The cockpit and exterior were built 'freestyle'. And though I am quite sure that a standard passenger car has doors both front and back, I didn't have parts to make four sets of doors. The doors open and look pretty good from the inside in my opinion, though they don't follow the curved profile of the exterior. For the interior, I looked at the NYC subway for inspiration: And here is the video: Final shot: That's it, let me know what you think of it! Do you like what you see, or does it pain your eyes as a train fan? Feel free to call me out on bad or inaccurate design choices... Thanks for viewing!

    As Samurai X, during ToE and Posession: @Kim-Kwang-Seok I personally don't mind the fluidity of her colour scheme, as long as the designs are nice.

    Another very nice one! Where are those bubble tiles from?

    I love water spirit Nya! Striking, gorgeous! This figure really blew me out of the water! (pun intended, but very much true). Not sure if the hair is trans blue or opalescent trans blue, but I love it either way! The azure never really did it for me, the dark blue is far superior imo. Also very happy with the recoloured ghost tail, it's always good to get these special pieces in different colours, and it adds to the whole flow of this fig. Very much looking forward to getting her!

    GOH Anniversary, 1st count down challenges.

    Smells like excitement in here! I'd like to say that I'll cook up something, but I still have a lot of business in Nocty to attend to... so I's a maybe for now.

    It's a fantastic set, one of my favourites! Great shaping, nice suspension, some NPU, great cockpit, Nelson and an exclusive and very unique version of Cole. Conclusively: this is an all-out yes! I even made a mini version of it :
