  1. When I first saw it I was "cool", then when I saw it could also make a new pirate ship I was "SQUEEEEEEEE!" Must have 2.

    Is this even for real? Are we actually getting Minions Lego?

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    I recently picked up 71780 - Gamer'd market. I don't watch the Ninjago series, and have only seen the movie. So I don't know much about Ninjago except that I buy the occasional set when I think they are cool. I really like the minifigures in this one, that's why I bought it. I like that we get what is basically a Kill Bill minifigure, a much-needed (IMHO) pink ninja (Now, if we could just get a Fuchsia ninja) But I absolutely LOVE the fact that we get a Jim Belushi Samurai Futaba figure. Seriously, google that.
  5. Is there a better piece of software for creating instructions than Lego Digital Designer? I would expect instructions to build from the bottom up but LDD seems to build completely random bits.

    Lego Coaster Loops

    Thanks, but I already found his page with more info: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmtBY4y6 No glue, but at least 2 illegal build techniques. I'm currently building an expanded pirate coaster with the loop.

    Lego Coaster Loops

    I'm dying to add a loop to my lego Pirate Coaster and have been looking at ways to do it. This one is good, but too big and not round enough for my taste. This one - Is the one I really wanted to copy, but I've come to the conclusion that they are cheating. I think they glued some parts together to make it work. Which is too bad as its really cool. I've come up with a design for a piece that would cross-over from the vertical to side-ways orientation that would allow it to work, but am not sure how to make that work. Does anyone have any ideas of how this can work with legal building techniques? Just figured it out. Instructions to follow.
  8. Did some math on these sets. Price per brick is a good indicator of the value of the set, although it does not tell the whole story. Number of minifigures also helps, and some sets have more large parts than others. 7-8 cents per brick is really good. 14 or so tends to behigh. 10-12 seems to be about average for licensed sets. I don't include Unikitty or Metalbeards in the minifigure counts. and some sets have characters made from other bricks. Your mileage may vary.
  9. I meant a Minifigure collection series, the blind bags.
  10. I'm just popping in after seeing the images on the shoplego.com site and, haven't read all 28 pages of this topic, but I wanted to weigh in. All the sets except the Duplo set are on my must have list. I hope we get a good minfigure set (I am sure we will, but haven't seen it yet.) Did everybody notice that the queens name is "Watevra Wa'Nabi" as in "Whatever you want to be"? Do we think this is all the sets? I don't see a really big one like the SeaCow. I am wondering if the plot will be about the clash between Finn going into his "dark Phase" while his sister is just starting to get out of Duplo into "real" Lego.

    10261 LEGO Creator Expert Roller Coaster

    We now have a 4th set (5th?) using the new roller coaster parts. 41347-1: Heartlake City Resort has RC parts forming a monorail These are grey, so not a new color. Thank God. I might get one of these to add the parts to the pirate RC, but maybe not as I don't see any that aren't already in there. I'm seriously considering buying about 4 Pirate RC's and using all the pirate bits to turn the big coaster into a huge pirate coaster. Also, the pirate tree house 3-in-1 set would work for that as well. So, we have RC parts in - The Joker manor (purple), The big coaster (red), the pirate coaster (grey), Heartlake city resort (grey), and I think the Black Panther set with the mine car is the same pieces as well (grey). Am I missing anything? 41456-1: Unikingdom Fairground Fun has purple 41352-1: The Big Race Day as grey so, lots of sets using the RC parts.

    10261 LEGO Creator Expert Roller Coaster

    Now we have 3 coaster sets, Wayne manner (purple), Pirate coaster (gery), and this one (red). Am I missing any? I wish they had just picked one color and stuck with it. Would have made it easier to integrate sets. I wonder how many pirate coasters you'd have to buy to have the same number of track pieces.
  13. The conservatory really adds to the Victorian steam-punky vibe of a good mad scientist lab. The window printing works, but these two https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=18675pb09#T=S&C=13&O={"color":13,"iconly":0} or, https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=18675pb03#T=S&C=13&O={"color":13,"iconly":0} might be better.
  14. I like the blue better than the yellow. Looks more like a real building. I get what you mean about cost, sand blue bricks tend to be more expensive. I still think the back of the top floor should be grey brick for the real "mad scientist" lab feeling. But, do what makes YOU happy. Don't try and please all of us. Replacing the window from the original with a non-printed one is definitely the way to go as the printed one is very iconic and related to Dr Strange. Is this going to be a stand-alone building, or stacked next to other modulars? The chimney will make it set apart if you're planning on setting it with some others. I'm looking at building 2 modulars from mine, one will be Dr Strange's house based on the 10218 Brownstone, and the other will be peters building based on the pet store with the pizza parlor on the ground floor. But I'm going to give the second building a different facade with the tan brick and fire escapes being the back of the building. Now, I just have to find the time to start building this. Need to scrap some of my half-finished buildings for parts.
