    Bricklink Designer Program 2021 Discussion Thread

    On my LEGO order page all my orders are listed as "backordered", except for the diner which is listed as "waiting for new stock". What does it say on y'alls orders?
  2. Oh, awesome. Now the black classic classic Spaceman is the only one left. Plus 3 helmet colours for legacy classice Spacemen.

    LEGO Ninjago 2022

    So will this be the final season in this continuity? Will there be a reboot afterwards? I'm over 5 years behind on the show and I don't think I'll ever catch up, especially since I left the target demo a long time ago and don't enjoy the show anymore. Just curious if this is the ending, because would probably tune in for the last couple of episodes if it is.

    Woah, another thing I was wrong about. I assumed this round wouldn't sell out due to the high prices. 4 out of 5 on the first day! Probably a lot more resellers than last time, though hopefully also just more regular fans.

    Welp, I did it. I ordered all of them because of FOMO. I will probably end up cancelling most, if not all because I do NOT have that kind of money. Or impulse control. Altough the Observatory is pretty nice. That may be the only one I'll get. But because the market is so f***ed right now I don't know if I'll be able to bring myself to open it. For that same reason I can't bring myself to open the canopy of my UCS Slave I. 200 frickin bucks for a single piece. I hope TLG re-releases that piece soon, so I can just open mine and finish the damn model!

    Brickwest Studios didn't make it?! Aww, what a massive bummer. I really wanted that one. Weird how the Chalet is the most popular set. I was sure it was gonna be the least popular. EDIT: I just looked through the Chalet pictures and realized it's minifigure scale and includes minifigs. At a glace I thought it was slightly too large for minifigs. Now its success makes a lot more sense. It's basically a Winter Village set.
  7. Y'all, I feel like I'm going crazy. Has anyone seen a post somewhere about how the angle of the pyramid is wrong and that it may be possible to fix? Idk if I saw it on youtube, instagram, reddit, or twitter and now I'm considering the possibility that I may have just dreamt it. I'm really excited about the set, just now I'll have it bruned into my mind that there may be something wrong with it and that fixing it is possible, I just don't know how.

    Licensed Lego Ideas - Support & Discussion

    Good gods, that's infuriating. Not because it's a boyband (before y'all start; they're insanely popular worldwide, and they will sell better than those 80s things would have, be happy for fans of things you're not into, get over yourself), but because the fan design is just so ridiculously lazy and uninspired. They didn't even bother to put some default faces on the figures. What a slap in the face to all those builders who actually put effort into their submissions! I've been saying this for years and I will say it again, the Ideas team needs to be replaced asap. Mind you I'm not saying "fired", I'm sure they can be shuffled around to other themes, but this just hasn't been working out for a while. We also need more transparency into the process. Ideas is supposed to be the community working with TLG, instead it's just a small group of people making baffling decision after decision. Also not looking forward to seeing how they'll butcher the cabin, like they did with the Medival Blacksmith and The Pirate Bay before.

    LEGO Videogame Tie-Ins - Rumors & Discussion

    So, the existence of the Horizon sets was leaked a while ago, and as I recall it was supposed to be only one set out of a new video-game line. Did we get any reliable rumors about what other games could get sets?

    Lego Legend of Zelda 2022 - rumored theme

    Well, now I'm reminded why I don't use this website all that much.
  12. Honestly this is just kind of irritating. Imo TLG took a big misstep when creating minidolls. They really just should've made the Friends sets with regular minifigures, and not split the figure system in two by traditional gender roles or whatever. I'm certain it would've been just as succesful. Now they're creating another theme that generally has the potential of genderless appeal, but yet again they're splitting it off from the majority of playsets. LEGOs success was based on sticking to one system. And, I mean, we all know minifigures are just superior in every single way (except for maybe height, but as a tall guy let me tell you; it's overrated).

    Lord of the rings sets returning?

    That would make sense, although I don't think he was hired early enough for the first wave since designs are finalized around a year in advance. But I could definitley see him working on that theme. At least we got a guy on the inside we know for sure is gonna push for it (though maybe he'll wait til he's established himself in the company a little more).

    Lord of the rings sets returning?

    Since I'm not on Eurobricks to often, I'd figured I'll post this now. A couple of months ago Aaron Newman got hired by TLG and moved to Denmark for the job. Now you may know Aaron from his appearance on LEGO Masters US, but he first made his mark in the community by coming up with his own fantasy theme; (not)LEGO Dragon Lands. Beautiful sets that rival the best of TLG original themes while still sticking to their design-philosophy. Over the years he came up with 5 waves, the most recent of which was posted just before he started his new job. And before he even started Dragon Lands he build custom sets for Lord of the Rings, which were designed before LEGO introduced their own sets. One of which has a freaky resemblance to an official set that released later. Over the years he hasn't stopped building LotR. Seen on his instagram he put some of the official sets in display cases, and somewhat recent-ish he build and released free instructions for this amazing Sauron you may even have seen. Save to say he's a big fan. Now, he's known for building magical and fantastical things and creatures- so imagine my surprise when he annouced he would be working on LEGO CITY of alll themes. With all due respect to CITY, but it's hardly something I'd call fantastical or magical. But here's another thing- when he annouced his new job on instagram, I commented something; "Good luck bringing back LEGO Lord of the Rings!" And he LIKED it. So, I believe that he wasn't hired to work on LEGO City (at least not exclusively), but he was brought in to be a member of an elite designer team tasked to revive the theme with the upcoming resurgence in popularity and attention the Lord of the Rings franchise is about to recieve! DISCLAIMER; I am joking (altough everything I've posted is a fact, so take that as you will).
