  1. Lego Licensed Photography Thread

    @Duncan Young great pic! I love the fact you've got Tarantula chasing Nightwing behind too
  2. UK Sales

    Hope you made use of it!
  3. Post Your Superhero Minifig Collections Here!

    Who's the extra? lol
  4. Post Your Superhero Minifig Collections Here!

    My latest pick ups over the last few months. All in temporary housing (definitely not the final frames!) until I can get my hands on a larger 50cm x 50cm IKEA Ribba frame. Sadly, it seems they have discontinued them so it might be a laugh trying to get hold of one, but we'll see. I think I've started to lose count of the amount of Hulk big figs there are nowadays?
  5. What did you buy today?

    Had a mini field day over here in the UK and made the most of the Argos 3 for 2 deal. Ended up having a good push at getting back up to date (within reason! Still some more to get..) and picked up: 70915: Two-Face Double Demolition 70914: Bane Toxic Truck Attack 70907: Killer Croc Tail-Gator (easily my favourite bigfig!) 76088: Thor Vs. Hulk Arena Clash 76084: The Ultimate Battle for Asgard 76078: Hulk Vs. Red Hulk (poor set in my eyes, but really needed to add all 4 figs to my collection). Now to get those pesky Flying Monkey's, Wicked Witch and Polkadot Man from the Ultimate Batmobile, and Harley Quinn from the Batwing!
  6. Future Marvel Superheroes Rumors & Speculation

    Ahhhhh yes, of course. Thanks.
  7. Future Marvel Superheroes Rumors & Speculation

    Isn't Killer Moth's helmet from the MM a new mold? (I'm actually not sure, genuine question lol).
  8. What was the last movie you watched?

    Got to agree with these guys, it was an incredible movie! I honestly can't understand some of the comments people are moaning about with regards to it. The most laughable one I read recently was "the movie has no plot!" - what?!
  9. Future Marvel Superheroes Rumors & Speculation

    Are these just the characters in the movie or have you just dropped a bomb on who we're getting over the sets? lol
  10. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    You and me both . Although I tend to shift the sets on. So from my workings I think I still need.. Wicked Witch, 2 Flying Monkey's and Polka Dot Man from UB, Two-Face and the 2 GCPD, Harley from the Batwing set, and lastly Bane and Mutant Leader. Oh and Zebra Man, Tarantula and Killer Croc.. Damn you TLBM! 13 to get.
  11. Post Your Superhero Minifig Collections Here!

    He does indeed - God knows what I was looking at earlier! Ignore me!
  12. Post Your Superhero Minifig Collections Here!

    Bane looks like it's Head Type 4 and Batwing looks like Head Type 1 from what I can tell on the Lego website... don't take that as gospel though!
  13. Post Your Superhero Minifig Collections Here!

    The head from the Winged Bat from Scarecrow set is the same as Head Type 2, Tartan Batman, Tears of Batman Clown and Tiger Tux Batman.
  14. DC Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Vixen.. happy with that! I can't even remember her from the show! I'll await Marvel to kick me in the balls very soon. EDIT - I remember her now I've looked her up, still just as happy!
  15. Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    I doubt they've even noticed. I made the stupid mistake of doing the exact same thing back when I got into Lego after my dark ages and saw people saying the Maria Hill / Nick Fury figs were available online minus the heads. I quickly jumped on, ordered them up and wondered if I'd done it correctly but obviously went through the wrong channels (this was all new to me, I'd never used either of these services before). I did even contact Lego offering to pay for them because I don't want to be on their sh*t list after being pointed in the right direction on here and they told me it's not a problem, they appreciate me contacting them but enjoy the figs and be sure to keep on collecting! That said, I've also recently learned that @Duncan Young was banned from their service for ordering genuine replacement parts, and I also had to order some replacement parts recently due to shoddy printing and had to jump through hoops for it.
  16. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Oh man that's a bit poo :(
  17. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Yeah Spectre definitely had a complete GITD head, I remember thinking it was pretty cool when I got him. Still like the Extremis soldier and Aldrich Killian from the Marvel line because of it haha, must be my inner child. Would still like to see a complete torso/legs in the same GITD finish though. I looked up the Mummy minifig but it only see to be certain parts that glow like it's a print instead of full piece.
  18. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Oh I wasn't sure if that was just print
  19. Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Bizarro in Mighty Micro form isn't as good as the SDCC one. I definitely prefer the general release Green Lantern to the SDCC one though!
  20. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Have Lego done a complete GITD torso/arms/legs before? I seem to recall Paris Custom Bricks trying it for his Spectre custom minifig and eventually only going down the route of the head.
  21. Car Talk

    It really does! I honestly thought it was a model at first glance. Lovely car @SirBlake, and I love that single malt bottle .
  22. Lego Print Quality

    Hi fellow Eurobrick chaps! Hopefully this is the right place to start the discussion? I did this over on Flickr recently after opening a few sets at the weekend and had a fair few people agree, so I thought I'd ask it over here too! Do you think the quality of print on Lego is slipping a little recently? I haven't noticed it much in the past other than some Captain America shields being pretty light on the white print etc, but I've recently picked up a few bits and seem to find more faults recently than ever. Over the last month or so I've had issues with: IG-88's head, Captain Americas shield, Ms Marvels head and legs, Vultures helmet, Spider-Mans torso and Batgirls torso. I'm sure I'm a little bit picky compared to what a kid might think when he opens up the packet as I'm a collector for display purposes only, but we shouldn't have to put up with bad printing should we? Lego have happily replaced all parts I've had issues with recently, but the last batch were a bit more troublesome, and I had to provide numerous details, receipts etc before they would release them, but they did this pretty quick. Interested to hear from everyone else!
  23. Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Yeah I think 6 sets will be more than enough if they do them right!
  24. UK Sales

    The GOTG2 Milano set is currently £34.99 on Amazon at the moment, just ordered one up! Happy days. The smaller Rocket Raccoon set with Taserface was £11.99 the other day too but this has gone back up sadly. Might be worth keeping an eye on it.
  25. [MOD] UCS Slave 1 + Lights!

    Hi all! I hope I'm doing this correctly?! I don't usually find my way over to the Star Wars section but wanted to share my Slave 1 with you all! I snagged the idea from a guy on Reddit who added white lights into his Slave 1 to light up the engines, and I loved the look! I knew I had to do it myself. To make it more of my own take on it I decided to change the lights to orange to try and match the engine colour better. I've also swapped out the trans-blue 1x1 tiles on the top engine for trans-orange, and have some trans-orange discs coming to replace the lower blue ones. Anyway, I hope you guys like! I plan on getting some more lights into the cockpit at some stage but didn't think orange would suit in there. You can just about see the battery pack sitting on the stand underneath with a bit of wire showing. I plan to try and hide this a bit better at some point. Signed by the main man himself :) Played around with the photo a bit as it was still light out when I took pictures... Lastly, the back! I might try and fill the last 3 holes with either more LED's to make the bottom engines brighter but if I did 6 at the bottom I'd only have 8 for the top (there's currently 14). Bonus pic - quick photo of just after I put them in. I pulled the curtain shut to try and get it a little darker but even then it was still quite light and they stand out ok. I need to change the 8x1 brick at the top for a flat 8x1 so it sits flush again, but other than that, and swapping trans-blue for trans-orange I've not amended the build. I hope you guys enjoyed!
