  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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 .
  4. 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!
  5. Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Yeah I think 6 sets will be more than enough if they do them right!
  6. 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.
  7. [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!
  8. [MOD] UCS Slave 1 + Lights!

    Cheers VaderFan :) I shall definitely try to pop my head in a little more often as I do love Star Wars! I just seem to spend most of the time around the Marvel/DC stuff due to that being my main focus! I agree certainly makes it even more of a special set!
  9. Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    I'm sure you'll be fine. I got a reaaaaaaaally poor customer services rep when I spoke to them first about it. Said it was licensed and there's no way I'm allowed to have them, and they shouldn't even be on the website. I then ordered Batgirls head and that was fine (go figure?), but she was pretty crappy and wasn't understanding at all. Ended up speaking to someone else which is when they sent them. I can't see why you'd have any issues, I just got unlucky :).
  10. Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    Weird isn't it. I tried to order some Han Solo hair pieces and also a Luke Skywalker one (all showing for sale on their site) and it let me add them to the bag, then when I proceeded it removed them all. Spoke to customer services and they said I wasn't allowed to order them as they are licensed parts, then told they would send some out anyway for issues I had trying to order.. all of that and they are still on their website so I'm not sure what all of that was about!
  11. Post Your Superhero Minifig Collections Here!

    Oh no, I completely agree! You've probably hit the nail on the head with the reason! I know I've got that minifig, yet it bugs me not having another for those stupid number purposes.. guess I'm a little weird!
  12. Post Your Superhero Minifig Collections Here!

    @Mat099 seeing that white headed Iron Man has made me remember I need to pick up one still. It's stupid.. I KNOW it's identical to the white headed Iron Man I've already got, which is also identical to the same suit which came with the Tony Stark head, but because Bricklink gave it a different number because it has the blue jet thingies I bloody need one!
  13. Post Your Superhero Minifig Collections Here!

    I got double screwed. I was nicely up to date come end of 2016, then moved out from home and in with my girlfriend. My monthly Lego budget obviously took a huge hit haha (obviously for good reasons I'd never change of course!) but pair that with the OTT TLBM releases of waaaaay too many sets it's just made me struggle with everything else. It's not like they were cheap either! Think I want to finish off the GOTG sets next. If I can finish 2017 off and be up to date I'll be more than happy! Really need an Argos 3 for 2 to come along.
  14. Marvel Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Don't worry, there's still time for them to screw us with SDCC exclusive figs.
  15. DC Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    Oh you know there's no way I'm turning it down! I'll have to get a frame to display Batman's jet packs .
  16. Post Your Superhero Minifig Collections Here!

    @Mat099 It never fails to impress me every time I see your SH collection! It makes me want to put all mine in character order but it would just be a huge pain opening up all the IKEA Ribba's to re-arrange. I've already opened them up enough times that the pins holding the back in are starting to fall apart . Would love to collect the old Batman and Spider-Man lines too at some point, I think I need to play catch up on SH though. That said I've got the 2 Green Goblins and Mary Jane at least! Anyway, now that my Star Wars collection has grown a teeny tiny amount I'm back on track and will now be focused on collecting the SH releases I don't have yet. Finished my 5th frame last night.. And for the time being I managed to get some Stormtroopers framed like I originally wanted (although I can't fit the amount I'd like in!).. So that leaves me to collect (currently out to buy).. TLBM - Killer Croc, Tarantula, Zebra Man, The Wicked Witch, 2x Flying Monkeys, Polka Dot Man, Harley Quinn, Bane, Mutant Leader, Two Face, 2x GCPD Cops DC - Wonder Woman, Ares, Steve Trevor Marvel - 2x Thor, Loki, Grandmaster, Sakaarian Guard, Gladiator Hulk, Bruce Banner, Valkyrie, Hela, Beserker, Fenris Wolf, Spider-Man Homecoming Suit, Iron Man, Vulture, Shocker, 2x Robbers in Avenger Masks, Red Hulk, Comic Book Hulk, She-Hulk, Red She-Hulk, Star-Lord, Gamora, Baby Groot, Drax, Nebula, Rocket Racoon, Taserface, Mantis Mighty Micros - every damn one from Phase 2.. That it excluding Dimensions? So... 57? 58 if I get 2x Beserkers.. OH damn, forgot Ms. Marvel, Super Adaptoid, Captain America, Justin Hammer, Iron Man & Agent Coulson.. 64 Help?
  17. Post Your Superhero Minifig Collections Here!

    I'm with everyone else, I collect them so I have to full set (bar SDCC) of SH. Although now I have Excalibur Bats I feel I need to get the other Dimension SH's to fill the void. I also collect the Juniors lot but won't dip into Duplo or Super Hero Girls.
  18. DC Superheroes 2017 - Set Discussion

    I've lost count of the amount of jet packs I have for Batman lol
  19. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Apparently the Kiss Kiss Batman key chain is still available in store at Argos but they've bumped the price up to £4.99! That's what I've read elsewhere anyway. Agreed with not getting stuff upon release anymore too. I've got all the outstanding sets on Amazon put into a list so I can see how much % each one has dropped by.
  20. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    It wouldn't surprise me - half of the sets got heavily discounted here in the UK in places like Tesco. I saw people picking up the Batmobile and Jokers Lowrider for £10! I only need Killer Crocs set from that wave and it's currently sat at £46 on Amazon so I might pull the trigger on pay day. Not TLBM related, but the Captain America jet also got heavily discounted recently too - £5 instead of £20 in ASDA!
  21. Hi all, Posted this in the The Lego Batman Movie thread, but for those of you in the UK who may not have seen it the Kiss Kiss keychain polybag 5004928 is currently £2.99 at Argos and they seem to have an absolute load of stock. Happy shopping!
  22. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Ended up going back to Sainsbury's to get it haha now to sell the DVD...
  23. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Is it literally only the DVD version? Bit bummed out when I went into Sainsbury's just now wanting to get the Bluray. Left empty handed!
  24. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Batman Kiss Kiss polybags are in stock at Argos guys for £2.99 each for those who haven't got one yet (UK only). It's also caused the price to plummet from £20 odd to £9 on eBay for those who haven't got an Argos.. I'd assume it'll drop further too.
  25. Some comic-book odds and ends

    Reaaaaaaaally like that Mysterio and what you've done with the swirl going around him!
