    10264 Corner Garage

    I like it. I do find it strange that the bathroom door has a window but to each their own I suppose. My initial reaction is that the price is going to make this a slow seller at the beginning.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I understand everyone's want for leaked modular info or else I wouldn't be here looking for it but it seems a lot of people are trying to justify a leak because they want it. To play devil's advocate: I thought the reason for avoiding leaks was so other companies can't capitalize on copies of TLG's designs early. Additionally they may want to put it off so people don't wait to buy sets if they know what new ones are coming, may want to avoid early criticisms and complaints similar to what the Diner received, or they may just want to time their hype just right. I'm sure their marketing department knows what they're doing and catering to the afol online speculation community is probably not even on their radar (but it'd be cool if it was).

    DC Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    Thanks. I really wasn't sure with the bevy of Batman sets out there. I wasn't intending on non 'official' figures until I gathered the ones already out there but that wasn't clear (I did use the word assemble). Although, of the ones you mentioned, I could probably make some pretty good ones with official parts. I did look through a list of all the villains and while I didn't remember many of them there were a lot of generic females that I think would be relatively easy to create but as suggested by your list many of them weren't memorable enough to mention and therefor warrant a figure.

    DC Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    Rather than start a new topic I thought this might be the place to ask. I'm trying to assemble a crew of Batman villains from the Classic TV Series. Aside from the figures in the classic Batcave, Egghead, King Tut, and Mr. Freeze who else am I missing? I'm looking for characters more or less faithful to their television appearances; i.e. Clock King minifigure exists but gets its inspiration from the comics. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks.

    LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    I agree with all of them except Axl and Macy, choosing the Tower Carrier and Thunder Mace instead. I think the Rumble Blade may have been the best designed set of the series. As a kid I could see myself wielding those as vehicles but also as a sword, hammer, and two little grenades. Pretty cool feature. Also why I liked the Thunder Mace more.

    Jurassic World 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Whoa. That takes me back. I had that. You squeezed its legs together and it made a horrible moaning noise. I threw it in a bathtub and still worked. That thing was awesome. Even black market dinosaur animal cruelty makes me sad.

    LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    Does anyone that has collected a line that ended abruptly have any speculation on prices? I have only Knighton Castle and the current wave to complete my Nexo collection but I want to collect doubles/triples of everything if I can. I enjoy the pieces so much and because a lot of them will be used for a large project in my LUG (especially the fluorescent pieces). I don't know when is the right time to buy to maximize my dollar/sets. My initial thought is make sure I get one of everything, full price as needed and then cross my fingers for price drops. I'm sure everyone here is in the same boat in terms of having "plans" for a huge MOC that may never come to fruition but half the fun is planning and buying and parting out.

    [MOD] Modular-ized Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters

    This is fantastic! Not sure how I missed it but I'm going to try and steal this as much as possible to fit into my modular city as this was also my plan but I still have yet to get around to it.

    What was your favourite LEGO set released in 2017

    Ninjago City is by far my favorite set of the year and now my favorite set I've ever put together. I love modulars of course and this has all the details of those with additional creative elements/builds not constrained to city/modular 'realism'.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    I think Lepin will find this extremely useful. J/K. I think it's awesome people in this community are capable of this and able to share their hardwork. It also goes back to the point that people can successfully engineer sets from pictures alone. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with from your effort here. My main question would be approximately how many 1x2 tiles were used on the facade if people (like me maybe) are inclined to use a different color.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    My point exactly! I agree with disliking not having an architectural variety, even in an extreme sense. I don't think a lot of folks that live in old old cities that are made up of single style or two requisite to the time period in which it was founded have a feeling of just how architecturally eclectic a lot of American streets in urban areas are. I regularly frequent streets with architectural styles spanning hundreds of years one after another that generally subscribe to same proportional requirements of Lego modulars in terms of width, height, roof line, etc. The only major difference that I notice relative to where I live is a lack of the occasional alley.

    I invite everyone to emote how they feel about the change from the classic mini face by using the classic mini face. I'll start.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I've mentioned it before and I'm hypothesizing it now: The garish color scheme and departure from the previous modular norm may turn a lot of previous modular collectors away but after 3 or 4 releases of this 'new' style with more vibrant colors and expressive mini faces the prices on this one are going to increase via the year 2022 when people realize it fits in perfect with 'Modulars Volume 2 series' and realize their missed opportunity at not purchasing this one before it retired.

    I've had to reference 2009, 2012, 2015 IBCs (International Building Code), 2009 IRC (Residential), and ANSI 117.1 today so this comment made me simultaneously laugh and cry.

    I think the new classic boxes may be a nod to that.
