    [MOC] Medieval Haunted House

    That is an absolutely great house! And nice pictures, btw. Really nice spooky, halloween creation!

    [MOCs] New Castle and Bethy's Castle

    Wow, that is absolutely stunning. I think I will copy some of the architecture styles you made.
  3. Hi, is this an official image and is this supposed to be some kind of hint? I am still hoping for new castle sets next year (with the Lego anniversary and so), or is this just a fun image?
  4. On the German blog zusammengebaut, there is an interview with Bali Padda where he states that NK was "... first a success but then we could have done things better ...". The digital part with the shields seems to have failed. The interview is from within the last couple of days.
  5. Of course, if you get the chance to buy those sets on such a sale, and if you sell the figures, then maybe you get all the pieces for free. An honest calculation would be to still account for the time and effort you need to sell them (if you are not a student), but still this might be nice. But there are too many "ifs" for me and these sales are far from being normal (at least here in Germany). Just look at the parts you really need from one of those sets, count them and calculate how much you would have spent on bricklink.
  6. I have a lot of Elves sets (actually all from the first waves), but mostly because of my daugthers. They love the elves. But for Castle building? No way. Too much pink and purple. And please don't buy sets for pieces to build castle stuff, especially not licensed sets like Star Wars. This is the worst pieces for money ratio. Just use bricklink.
  7. Since he is German, I bet he means "it's nothing but senseless, brainless and horrible action stuff". And I totally agree to that, btw. In German, the word "pure" sounds like a German word, with a different meaning.
  8. As I said, a quick search reveals the research, but here it is:
  9. LEGO did a scientific research on this very fact. The results were pretty clear as fas as I know and that was why they introduced the minidolls. I don't have the link right now but a search on the net should reveal it.

    [MOC] The Rabbit of Caerbannog

    I was immediately reminded of this Monthy Python scene (before reading the text). It's so great :) And yes, nice build! I went from "wtf" to "wait a moment, I know this ...." :D
  11. That's true. So I'm afraid we won't get rid of it so fast.
  12. Absolutely. In the German translation I would actually read it quite mixed for Nexo Knights. There they say that "LEGO City, LEGO Creator, LEGO Technic, LEGO NINJAGO™ and LEGO Star Wars™ had very strong results. Additionally, Nexo Knights had a good start". No really, if Nexo Knights hit it like a bomb, this sentence would surely sound different.

    The best of the worst Lego Ideas

    Of course it was (6 at most), but look at the image. It's professionally made. So the parents (?) made an image and uploaded it, most obviously. The account should be banned. I once liked to browse Ideas and just look at the nice projects and get some inspiration. But this kind of stuff destroys the entire Ideas website.
