    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    There is a lot of copy-and-paste accounts there in IG, but I think a lot of you guys already know that. Too bad Malaysia is still in lockdown and Singapore will be soon... I can't get these on my hands right now but hopefully when this pandemic situation is over, I can get these in my collection. https://www.flickr.com/photos/80720650@N02/49733011626/ There is also a new princess torso, or what appears to be a princess/royalty-looking dress torso.

    [REVIEW] 11010 - White Baseplate

    Welcome and great catch! Time to write to TLG for petition then. or, as most Gen-Z will say, "I'm dead" See, this is what I am talking about. True that! I support you. I'll add this to my vocabularity. You're welcome! I knew it! Can't make everyone happy. Oh wow. I didn't notice that. Thanks for sharing. At your service. I thought that the hidden feature is a dead give away already. Welcome and you're definitely right. That's why it didn't get a perfect value score.

    [REVIEW] 11010 - White Baseplate

    Apologies if I missed it out. Glad you still enjoyed the in-depth review. As for the Christmas buying plan, I think a lot of our forum members will copy this now that this idea is out there. Cheers!
  4. This review is the culmination of Eurobrick's finest photography and written review. As this set requires technical prowess due to its complexity, I have recruited @kaelthas to help me with this review. Without more delay, I am presenting you set# 11010 - White Baseplate. Overview Name: 11010 - White Baseplate Theme: Classic Year: 2020 (1H) Pieces: 1 Minifigures: 0 Price: GBP 6.99 / USD 7.99 / EUR 7.99 / MYR 34.90 Introduction To make this review exciting, @kaelthas has helped me with his excellent table top photography. Unlike me, he has access to twigs from his backyard which proves to be very handy as props. Every photos involving the wooden table and twigs are his. Note: mouse, laptop, twigs and other props do not come with the set. Front view Similar to other baseplates, the white baseplate is released under the Classic theme. Back view There is no need to show the back of the packaging but it is here anyway. Build (?) Just like Schrödinger's cat, one can argue that a 1-piece LEGO set is both built and/or unbuilt at the same time. So, while it is arguable, I would say that the time it takes to build this set depends on how fast one can open the plastic packaging. In addition, There is no need for an instruction manual so this is +1 point to mother earth. Front view Upon unboxing, the glorious 32 x 32 studs of the baseplate welcomes you with its pure whiteness. We have never seen this immaculate whiteness in a single set before, as this baseplate is pure white. Back View Can we appreciate the back of the baseplate, too? Unlike the regular plates that has anti-studs at the bottom, baseplates only have these recessed parts underneath that look like Golf ball dimples when viewed from a distance. Side view It is also rarely seen at this angle as baseplates are very thin. If it is any whiter, and if I remove all the shadows, you can barely see the image above. More versatile than you think! As you play with White Baseplate, you will notice that it is very good at collecting dirt and small particles. You can even look with your naked eye and see that it highlights them quite well. Blue and green baseplates pale in comparison. Another hidden feature with white baseplate is that it can be "re-built" as a tan baseplate. Yes, this is a secret 2-in-1 set! Below is a simulation on how a white baseplate will look like after basking it under the sun for a prolonged period. Voila, you have a tan-ish baseplate*! *colour depends on the varying exposure to UV light Conclusion I cannot stress enough that this is a very tough review to score but alas, here is my verdict. Pros: No assembly required Highlights dirt easily 2-in-1... as it becomes tan progressively Cons: Will be replaced by another colour (in rotation) after few years Review summary Playability: 10/10 - As baseplates are becoming a rarity in sets, this is 100% pure joy Design / Building Experience: N/A - You know that this is not a serious review right? Minifigures: N/A - If not obvious, please look at the review date. Price / Value for money: 9/10 - Buy this while it is available or wait for discount if you want it cheaper. Overall: 9.5/10 - I can't really say anything bad about baseplates. Highly recommended to people who likes winter season dioramas. Olaf: Happy April Fools!

    I see that Summer had put on some weight. Great purist minifigs and small build.

    I don't mind BAM postponing the parts availability for health and safety precaution.
  8. The balance of the game is a bit questionable at the moment. I'm a top-10 player in the game right now and it is almost impossible to win with all-Pirates team. The synergy isn't there at the moment, and that's probably the reason why Gameloft has introduced 2 new Pirates heroes in the game. Having said that, I do enjoy the presence of Pirates, along with classic Space and Castle. Btw @Mister Phes are you using Windows version? It's interesting that I don't see the "NINJAGO set" in both iOS and Android versions.

    There is no fixed rotation, unfortunately. This year, the quarterly release does not seem to be followed anymore. In South East Asia (e.g. Malaysia / Singapore) where I am based from, it depends on the distributor purchaser to place the order from TLG (regional/HQ sales). This model is followed by LCS (LEGO Certified Stores). Not sure about the wholly owned LEGO stores in North America or Europe.

    Minions 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    As I shared in my Instagram story, 75550 Minions Kung Fu Battle = NINJAGO + Chinese Festival + Minions rolled into one. That's not a bad thing. Also, the "kung fu outfit" is definitely a homage to Bruce Lee (not much of a Kill Bill reference)
  11. Would have been nicer if the armour of The Mandalorian is fully upgraded. Anyway, this will be a hot item. They certainly know how to price the set.

    If Netflix can spoil something like this, then I expect a curveball coming.
