    Updating Your Harry Potter Minifigures

    I love all of your small tweaks and changes - where did you get Sprout's cloth skirt? Did an extensive look through Bricklink to no avail...

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    Got the Clock Tower yesterday and built it with my modifications - the gear system that I had in the studio file doesn't work, it catches pretty regularly. I got it to work after some more trial and error, I'll post the file sometime tonight or tomorrow afternoon.

    That sounds awesome, whenever you can snap some pictures I'd love to see it. That's really cool that you were able to place it behind the DADA classroom, I didn't even think of that. Last year I made a pretty big DADA classroom in a MOC expansion to the Great Hall (with the building's exterior based on the long gallery), so I immediately decided to gut that section of the interior out of the Clock Tower. So it sounds like yours will be motorized?

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    Sure, here are some screenshots with the some of the more drastic changes outlined below: The entrance is wider (partly so it feels a bit more grand, partly because if I'm going to go through the trouble of adding a pendulum, I'd like it to be readily visible). Entrance now has doors which are not obstructed by the pendulum. The midsection is taller The roof section is much shorter so it'll be slightly better proportioned to the Great Tower (or, at least my incarnation of the Great Tower - I added another floor to it) The color scheme should fit better with the existing buildings from last year. I added more dark flesh and less dark tan. The floors have been tiled over (and there are a few nods to the 2004 clock tower with the furniture). The hospital wing is now divided into two vignettes, separated by some of the pendulum's gear mechanism. I'm not sold on the little table with the skelegrow and the potions. I'm also not sold on the vegetation on the sides of the building, I'll have to see what that looks like in person. I'm not sure if I want the pendulum to move slower or faster than the hands on the clock. I've bought gears to accommodate both options.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    I've spent the last few weeks preparing for the US release by MODing the Clock Tower on Studio (gutting most of the interior, adding the iconic pendulum and linking it into the gear system, fixing some proportions). It's pretty extensive, ordering the parts on Bricklink cost me ~$50. I'll post the file after I can get my hands on the set. I'd like to make sure it all works and that I'm happy with how it looks in the flesh before putting it out here.

    I'll be honest, I'm pretty disappointed with the lack of a swinging pendulum in the Clock Tower. The complicated mechanism behind a synchronized spinning clock and swinging pendulum was the only thing holding me back from MOCing my own Clock Tower. Hopefully someone a bit more adept at Technic than me comes up with a MOD that adds in the feature.
  7. That sounds a little "wishlist-y" to me, especially since the "leaker" said that the Praetorian battle pack would include four guards... and that's ludicrous.
  8. That's because many of them are based on old Doug Chiang concept art for Episode I/II. He's a brilliant designer, one of few bright spots of the prequel trilogy.
  9. Yeah, but considering that piece has been around since 1999 and has been molded in all sorts of different colors, I doubt that's the reason why. That being said, I don't know why the Medical Droid's legs are DBG either.

    [MOC] Mos Espa Arena

    I think he means the miniature. Also, I love the MOC! Absolutely ridiculous size without losing any detail.

    Buying Older Parts

    Thank you for the insight! I was actually hoping you would comment, you're actually the one who got me to really notice and care about the mold variations! I guess it's just something that I'll have to accept - I won't ever be able to replicate the insanity of the exact molds used in each set without going insane myself.

    Buying Older Parts

    I was recently given a lot with an assortment of sets from the early 90s that were in mostly good condition, but unfortunately there were some plates that were downright mangled. I'm a bit of a stickler with having the correct variation of bricks/plates (seen below) and unfortunately Bricklink does not differentiate between them. What would be the best way to get replacements (if there is a good way at all)? Am I being unrealistic?

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    I was talking about the Geonosis Troopers and Senate Commandos battlepacks, which are technically part of the CW line but do not have cartoon faces.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Yeah, I was just hoping this would be a cheap way to get a CW Yoda since I've recently been buffing up my CW collection and don't have a Yoda yet. ...But I also don't have a prequel Yoda, so it all evens out.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    *Sigh* I was worried that would be the case. Don't get me wrong, I love how all the Rebels figures fit in with the film figures, but that was set from the start. Considering that there has only been ONE other CW set released with normal-eyed minifigures, I'd like the cartoon eyes trend to continue or for LEGO to release all the major CW characters with normal eyes... just pick one or the other! Now I have to BL a CW Yoda just so the ship can fit in with all of my other CW sets.
