    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Watching the video I don't feel their enthousiasm about the modular buildings anymore. It's more like they state to continue because of the succes of the line. Could it be they are getting tired of the theme?

    OUT OF THE VAULT

    It has been a year since the anouncement of the rerelease of the wind turbine. After the Taj Mahal and the Vestas Wind Turbine last years I thought we were in for a yearly rerelease out of the vault, but I haven't seen a single hint, rumour or leak yet. Does anyone think we could expect such a rerelease again soon?

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    I experience the same. It's pretty annoying as this is going on for months. B&P is offline for most of the time and when it comes back then we aren't able to pay. Best thing to do is call customer service I guess. 2 months ago I could finish an order that way.

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    Last week I have experienced the same. After contacting LEGO online they restored my VIP points. They thought they solved the problem while B&P was offline, but it seems they were wrong. They advise to wait a bit longer to make a large order, but small orders can be made on telephone.

    What happened to Bricks & Pieces?

    I just experienced the same. I also used a VIP reward code, but couldn't complete the order. The second time I tried I couldn't even use the code anymore. I'm really upset. Bricks & Pieces was so long offline but hasn't been improved, I have been spending again a lot of my limited free time on failing orders.
  6. It would be interesting to know the ideas behind the minifigures and how the concepts evolved, like in a designer video or concept art. It could help appreciate the product even more.
  7. The Bounty Hunter looks very pale compared to the first digital picture. With the bright colors contrasting on the black minifigure I thought he was incredible, but now I'm not that inclined anymore to get him. Maybe he will look better on higher quality pictures, but it's strange the color scheme is different. His face bothers me too, so weird.

    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    What a great picture! Those crusaders look superb! I'm curious if we'll see a future set with them. Those shields are pretty hard to find!
  9. Is swapping hands considered a 'legal' building technique, as I have seen people able to order hands on Bricks & Pieces? Before I always considered torso and hands as one part. Ik haven't dared to swap hands due to the possible damage you mentioned and as I remember from childhood!
  10. I like Ghostly Knight's armour, but I think it's a shame he doesn't wear gloves, like Heroic Knight, Evil Knight and Frightening Knight all do. Now his hands are so specific what makes it impossible to just swap heads to make an undead version of him. The rugby player looks nice like he is. Personally I had hoped for other colors so I could have made him an opponent for the soccer player. Does anyone know if minifigure legs with a short and socks exist in other colors? I can't find them in other colors but white, or it are short unbendable legs.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I still believe they are working on a hotel. - In the designer video of set 10260 Downtown Diner designer Mike Psiaki stated 'surprised' there wasn't a hotel yet. ("We don't have a hotel?!... We need a hotel!") - There is also said they are working on multiple modular buildings at a time. - There is the hotel bellhop minifigure in set 60200 Capital City. Normally parts from City sets aren't unique, but untill now it's the only set his torso is used for. I for sure would like to see a grand hotel in the future!
  12. I'm really excited for this new series! Finally they're going back to the roots. There a so much diverse but interesting minifigures in this series! It has been a very long time since I randomly bought blind bags of minifigures, as there were only some minifigures that interested me in the last series. It will be fun to get a lot of them and be surprised again! I can't wait for better pictures or, even better, the release.

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    I received an e-mail back from the customer service. They said there are technical issues with the Bricks & Pieces website they are trying to resolve. Therefore the service is closed. They proposed me to check the site back in a few days. In the meantime I have been able to make a large part order with e-mail, that finally has been handled off with a telephone call. I'm pretty curious if it will be possible to use them for parts orders on B&P. I have changed some VIP points into a voucher for a gift. When finishing the order on the regular online shop, it was possible to give in one code. That makes me think the total amount of discount will be limited per order.

    I can't order pieces on Bricks & Pieces neither. I get the same message as you do. Buying sets in the online shop isn't a problem. It's very annoying as I have spent a lot of time making the selection over and over. I have sent them a message, but I didn't get an answer yet.

    Latest news about Lego animal moulds

    Interesting to know the prices might go down with time, but I don't think I would dare to wait once a wanted piece gets available. A lot of animals are pretty rare, only released in one set or with a collectible minifigure, and it's never sure when and if it will be released again. I'm eagerly awaiting the little bird (48831) from set 41161. At the moment it isn't yet listed under Bricks & Pieces. Do such statuses change over time? Could this be linked to the Disney licence (I wouldn't be surprised to see the bird coming recolored with a Snow White minifigure) or is it rather because it's a recent element?
