  1. Making Eurobricks More Active

    So agree with @mocbuild101 , specifically points 2 and three...never enough of #3! I'd open another account on EB and vote for these two...oops. For point five...I think we missed the boat already.
  2. Making Eurobricks More Active

    Judging by the respondents, there are very few “newbies” which have provided feedback. This alone is worrisome. It is by no means a reflection on the establishment – it tells me that of the many thousands of users, only a handful have responded. ~1,300 views with a couple of users responding. Trouble. This post warrants the main page. I too fear the “political correct” when replying to posts – watch my grammar, choice of words, audience, that I often tell myself “f” it, and do not reply. I joined EB to learn and be taught from others new ideas and ways to take this joy I have with ABS to other levels – there is expertise on this site, no question about this. I follow Town, Train and General. There is loads of “filler” in each post which is somewhat bothersome. I like the idea of contest, yearly for best MOC. I would like a rating system applied to a new MOC post, instead of replying with a “Sweet MOC! Thanks for posting” and getting a quoted “thanks”. We can rate it for originality, use of parts, etc. I do scan the other forums for new ideas but it is rather difficult – pictures tell more than words, so I just look for pics embedded into the post and neglect to read anything in between because of what I mentioned above. Reviews – I do not believe the site can compete with what is out there already. Really, how can anyone compete with JANGBRICKS or Just2good or other sites. They are experts at what they do and do it extremely well. Games, FP, Tags – nope for me. Thanks for your time.

    Its not the warmer weather that is causing me to remove my hat...this commands respect. Excellent work! Thank you for posting inspiration

    Outstanding! TLG...please learn from this
  6. This past weekend in Canada, TRU had a 25% reduction on all sets with prices ending in .99 (web only). They are not closing here as far as I know. I picked up Destiny's Bounty for 150$ CDN (~115$ USD) and The Old Fishing Store for $135 CDN(105$ USD) Their prices are not inflated over the TLG website prices. They usually have weekly sales based on theme that reduce the price of sets by 20%.

  8. Grand Lodge

    Truly amazing! Great techniques that will be "borrowed" from this builder...real sweet details!
  9. Ok, time to chime in. I got divorced 10 years ago and took my tools and...Lego (I omitted the "s" in Lego cause she took that with her). I purchased a small home and moved the collection to the basement. Interesting thing happened during my divorce...my two wonderful kids (aged 11 and 13 at the time) decided to stay with their dad...hmmm, i wonder if Lego had any part to do with their decision....

    This is one sweet and inspiring build! Thanks for posting!
  12. Lack of original themes

    All very good points and arguments. My buying habits have changed in the past couple of years...away from licensed and more towards city/creator and Ideas. I guess in my old age i'm getting back to my roots...

    Yes! Love it! Welcome!
