    Place: London Comic Con. Built by: Jason V Joiner Aluminium rod through the engine trail for support apparently. Most impressive

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    Just a heads up for folks in the UK; I know it seems to be the least favourite set of the wave but my local Smyths had the Knight bus out for sale. No sign of anything else just that set. Didn’t grab one as it’s the wife’s birthday and pretty sure she would prefer something other than Lego sadly 😔
  3. Nice review as ever! I read a review on IG that claimed that the distribution of figures was 1 row = one complete set seemed far to good to be true but would certainly make life easier hah! Im assuming from your in-depth and detailed review and the tips on the “feel etiquette “ that the IG review claim was nonsense?

    The rumour being referenced is for a Star Destroyer not an SSD. It’s pretty much pure speculation at the moment based on piece count and various other tid bits

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    After saving for Cloud city and Hogwarts & deciding that actually Cloud city wasn't for me picked up a few goodies on my wanted list and realised Hogwarts would have to wait ;)

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    For folks in the UK: Argos are doing their 3 for 2 toys offer and all the HP sets are included! Winner winner chicken dinner!
  8. Glad I wasn’t the only one at a Smyths doing this today! To be fair nobody batted an eyelid and only comments I got were “ wish I had the patience / wish I could do that “ kind of thing. The manager came over after I had been there for an hour and asked if I wanted a chair and an uonpened box to find the rest! I thanked her for the extremely kind offer but I had already found Percival and only needed a couple more so said I’d be fine. She said well just let me know if you change your mind. Anyways 15 mins later had my full 22 paid and said thank you once again for being so accommodating. Trusty fingers served me well and I had all 22 no duplicates hoorah! TL/DR: @ Smyths, Don’t worry too much they are used to it. And ask politely if you can look through an unopened box :)

    Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    Aye I know Asda is part of Walmart group but just seems strange as they have never done any of the other Walmart exclusives. In my experience majority of Asda stores Lego consists of cheap impulse buy sets eg battle packs Brickheadz, Mighty Micros and on the off chance the stores have anything “larger” ( £15+) they inevitably slash it by 40-50% as they become shelf huggers. You could well be right though as not seen it listed anywhere else and with TRu gone maybe Asda thought they’d give it a pop. Really hope not though as it would be quite difficult to get as like I said most Asda stores only have a range of about 10 sets total to cover all themes :/ ( obvs it’s available through S@H so granted not “hard” just have to cough up p&p )

    Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    In the UK at least the Ant man & Wasp set was spotted in the wild early in the week in Asda stores so assuming it's not exclusive here as they don't do exclusive as far as I'm aware

    LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!

    Found them in my local Tesco in the Midlands but had to hunt for them as they weren’t in the aisle with the rest of the Lego stock. They were in a Display area on their own with the Solo sets. Read on FB that other stores had a similar set up so worth just asking or have a wander around the whole store if you get blanks stares from the assistant

    It says: sometimes referred to as system scale. And the citation used is a car. Obviously Lego has a massive range of themes and so there will be a massive range of differentiation in what system scale means within each theme. Add to that ratio factors: a smaller 1 man craft and the difference between system and Minifig scale is much harder to notice/ see. The example given is perfect illustration with the falcon, but any large set will show that system is not default Minifig scale: AT-AT, ISD, The Ghost even. I think Robianco maybe right that the New UCS Y-wing looks closer to the mark than the RO version but is a little oversized to be true Minifig scale
  13. No sadly it requires that 2 of the feet from the left hand side of the Falcon be removed, front and rear (the more central one can remain) as can the other 4
  14. Obviously it will vary country by country but it seems Lego are finally on their way to meeting demand. I say this as here in the UK it has been available for nearly a week in the online store where previously it’s been a matter of a couple of hours and most Lego stores have also been carrying stock. I know that’s small comfort for you in Canada but it is indicative that it will readily available within the foreseeable future
