    DC Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I have most of the DC sets. I stopped collecting DC sets last year and I don't see myself collecting them anymore. This theme has totally gone to crap. Aside from the 2006-2008 range of Batman sets the 1966 classic tv series Batcave is my favorite set. I have been thinking about getting rid of my DC Lego collection but if I kept any it would be the 3 DC CMF series (counting LBM) and the 1966 Batcave.

    LEGO Titanic 2021 Discussion

    Thank you for being a voice of reason. I completely agree with your assessment. The Titanic would make a neat display piece. I would love to see it in person at a Lego store if they do make it, but my collection is based almost entirely around a city setup but I don't have enough room for a harbor, airport or spaceport so the Titanic would be a pass for me.

    10278 Police Station

    I have only built bags 1 thru 6 so far. Bag 6 was one bag. 1 thru 5 had 2 bags each if I remember correctly

    DC Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    You can have justice league sets that have nothing to do with the live action movies. Lego's complete disregard to explore DC's vast universe just shows what Lego thinks about DC at this point in time.

    DC Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    DC's theme has sucked bad enough the last 2 years. Dont need to turn this thread into a Marvel one also. DC brought me out of my Lego dark age back in 2012. Its really unfortunate that for whatever reason Lego has decided to abandon it. I get that there were a couple small sets, a CMF series and 2 USC sets but as a kids toy which is the primary market that isnt enough to sustain interest in my opinion. I got every retail DC set from 2012 thru 2018 except for the brickheadz. I have also acquired most of the 2006 thru 2008 sets in the aftermarket. Lego's lack of enthusiasm for decent DC sets is inexcusable in my opinion because of the vast universe of characters at their fingertips. Im sure I am not the only fan that has diverted Lego spending to other hobbies because of this.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Detective's Office is what started my modular collection and still remains one of my favorites

    I am the shield that guards the realms of men

    I'm sorry, but what does this have to do with Lego specifically?

    LEGO Brick Sketches 2020

    To me these are just as useless as Brickheadz. I wouldn't want them even as a gift or for parts.

    What are the characteristics of a Modular Building?

    I would add that there needs to be a way for the figures to get between the floors like stairs, fire escape, escalator or elevator.

    [MOC/AB] Ice Cream Shop

    I have been critical of your builds in the past but honestly I was surprised by this build. Good concept and great use of a readily available set. I can see your skill is improving as a builder. This looks like a lot of the mom and pop ice cream shops in the small towns near me. For that reason I would say make it a walk up with that large sliding window rather than a drive thru. Although I'm sure if you wanted you could easily make a drive thru on one of the sides of the building. Whichever works best for your Lego city is what you should do. Keep building and sharing!

    Top 10 Sets for a City Layout

    That retired while I was in my dark ages. Found it for a decent price last year thru Craigslist in the Chicago area. Same with the 3221 Lego semi trucks.

    Top 10 Sets for a City Layout

    I actually have three of the 3221 sets. I have the one you linked to and I have the Toys R Us set 7848. I have a few Lego store sets plus I modified the top floor of the Grand Emporium to be a Lego Store.

    Top 10 Sets for a City Layout

    A lot of good sets there but in my opinion every Lego city should have City set 3221 - Lego semi.

    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I bought every set from TLBM, every wave and multiples of the CMF's. They are ridiculously out of scale with the other DC sets but they are to this day the best figures and sets for all of DC. Only others ones that come close for me are the 2006-2008 waves. Unfortunately I was in the dark ages then. I have picked up all of the 2006 sets except the USC Batmobile. Id love to find the tumbler and joker van set though.

    Happy Easter Everyone!

    Simple yet profound, the empty garden tomb. Excellent reminder of the real reason to celebrate Easter, devoid of all the commercialized aspects. He is rise indeed.
