  1. LDD 4.3.11 Update Discussion

    The old gallery is still there, as is the promise of "a new gallery coming soon" on the LDD microsite...
  2. LDD 4.3.11 Update Discussion

    I hate to double post but I just noticed the "send to LEGO.com" button has been completely removed...
  3. LDD 4.3.11 Update Discussion

    The bar isn't too wide, the problem is that it naturally connects a tiny bit off-center. If you scaffold, say, a 1x4 panel exactly under it, it can attach properly. Also, the large Nexo Knights canopy has the same issue- it's easier to deal with that, though, because it has studs on top and it's very easy to snap it back onto the grid.
  4. LDD 4.3.11 Update Discussion

    The new gallery hasn't rolled out yet, which makes me think they'll officially release a modified version of 4.3.11 with that and this was an accident. LDD is running normally for me with nothing coming up on the loading screen at all, so I won't mess with anything until this weird situation resolves itself.
  5. 2018 Creator Sets

    Not that I'm disagreeing, but I do think LEGO has a reason for making a lot of minifigure-scaled Creator sets... and I bet that reason is something like "kids like sets that can work with minifigures AND have alternate model instructions provided." Now, I can't stand the modular sets, it seems like a stupid gimmick and it makes all of the houses really boring in their design, but the idea of adding more playability to make buildings more interesting to kids is solid. That said... I'll be sad if we only get minifigure-scaled models from here on out, this is the only theme besides Technic that makes things in different scales or just normal buildings.
  6. Should we still be expecting this thing to drop in the next week?
  7. LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!

    I found the pictures, I really like the builds except for the new Falcon... the new color scheme and the weird shape of the nose don't do it for me, and it's incredibly expensive... Otherwise it's a great little lineup of sets, I'll certainly be getting that TIE Fighter.
  8. I want the new slide and staircase elements from LEGO Friends, all the animal heads from Elves, the kite-shaped tile piece from the brand-new Elves sets, the 1x1x1 2/3 brick with 2 studs on the side, the 2x2 plate with a 45 degree angle, the windshield from last year's Batmobile set and this year's Creator Rocket Rally Car, the strangely shaped windshield first introduced in the 2016 Black Panther set, and the Technic pull-back motor. This isn't really a part, but I would really like for them to fix the bug with the dual-molded minifigure legs and to fix the 1x1 cone and 2x2 macaroni elements so they accept Technic axles all the way.
  9. 2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Prehistoric animals, you say? I don't even buy City sets any more, but I am definitely intrigued by that.
  10. Technic 2018 Set Discussion

    Did we settle once and for all what color the Rally Car is?
  11. Technic 2018 Set Discussion

    Found the images on Twitter. Love the forklift, can't really tell much about the others but the Volvo is certainly interesting. I really can't get a sense of scale for any of these other than that one... also I understand distortion and everything, but I swear those are 3x7 dog bones on the arm of 42082.
  12. Technic 2018 Set Discussion

    I haven't seen pictures and can wait a little while to get them, but this 2H 2018 lineup sounds amazing, and I'm definitely going to get the forklift and drone bulldozer thing just from the descriptions of them. Also, if we do get another big supercar, I hope it's more impressive than the Porsche...
  13. LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!

    Where do I find these X-Wing and Sandcrawler pictures?
  14. LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!

    The fact that the First Order AT-ST costs the same as the Rogue One AT-ST despite being literally half of the previously existing set- the leg builds are exactly the same, look at them- is absolutely absurd and possibly the dumbest LEGO decision I have ever come across. I saw JANG's review of Defense of Crait, that looks like a great set but it's too expensive by about $15 and it really needs a little display stand for the speeder so the ski can come down. It really does look better with that deployed.
  15. Three weeks later, the notice is still on the microsite saying it's coming in a few days, the old gallery still exists and stuff is being posted, and LDD has not been updated at all. What gives?
