  1. Updating Your Minifigs

    Where's this from originally? POTC?

  3. Future Star Wars Sets

    After seeing an early release of a Porg soft toy, I'm wondering if we'll ever see Lego versions of them. Maybe they could reuse the body mold from the Nexo Knights scurriers!
  4. LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!

    We'll also be midway through season 4 of Rebels by then - maybe some of the winter sets will come from this neglected source.

    The inevitable discussion you've mentioned above is looming on the horizon like an all-consuming, deja vu-inducing nightmare! Good thing is, as soon as news of images appears on here, we'll be able to check them out and then never visit this thread again!
  6. Updating Your Minifigs

    Yep.
  7. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I'll second this!

    It was nail varnish remover and a q-tip (or cotton bud as we call them in the uk!) The printing was a lot harder to shift and the nail varnish remover seemed to eat straight into the plastic. I've never seen it like it before. As I say, I'm just this one as a prototype and will try different methods next time. Maybe the nail varnish needs to be diluted a bit.
  9. Updating Your Minifigs

    Still investigating the opportunities of the new Ninjago Cmfs and today picked up the rocker with his dual molded black and white legs. These looked go for updating a long neglected minifigure - the biker scout. I'd already updated the figure with arms from the mad scientist. As you'll notice, the main issue with the legs was the additional printing that needed to be removed. The printing here seemed be particularly resistant to removal. My usual technique of simply using a rubber had absoutely Zero Effect. As such i had total resort to some chemicals which obviously have damaged the surface of the plastic slightly. I'm therefore treating this as a "proof of concept" version. Although you do lose the pocket printing from the original legs, I think white boots outweighs this.

    Yep. Can genuinely see it there.

    Been looking forward to this date due to the release of the ninjago cmfs as I've spied a few useful pieces in amongst them. In particular I was after the "Flashback Garmadon" due to not one pair but 2 pairs of dual molded arms. In fact I'm more pleased with the outcome than I thought I'd be. Check out new Ahsoka and Sabine. I feel like the colours are perfect for Ahsokas skin and Sabines armour. The bottom half of Ahsokas arms should be DBG but I'm happy with the black. Finally I know this hair doesn't match anything from the show, but like a lot of others, it's my preferred hair piece for her. Garmadons legs and hair also look like they'll come in useful at some point! Also some othet useful pieces to be had across the range but I was fed up with feeling the packets.
  12. LEGO Ninjago 2017 Discussion

    I'm a stranger around these parts (I usually live in the Star Wars forums... I'm asking for my son!) but I wondered if anyone knew if the Flying Jelly Sub set was a store exclusive anywhere. S@H in the UK is showing most of the other sets as 'coming soon', but no sign of this set. Is it an Argos or TRU exclusive?

    New behind the scenes photos from TLJ are doing the rounds. Looking at the image of Smoke, I think its fair to say that Lego have done a pretty good job replicating him in minifigures form.
  14. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Where have you seen these? Can't find anything new in the usual places!
  15. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I'd be over the moon to find a gunship for £60... or even £160!
