    Help with identifying parts/sets!

    Nice work! That's why they stopped that color cause they finally got a color checker chart and did some white balance calibration, went "whooops that's not right" and came out with the Stone Greys.

    The Old West Train Station.

    Even using google translate, notoriously bad for accurate translations, doesn't make that mistake. But given the benefit of the doubt if it was a translation error then a correction would be in order, but it's still there. "The term originates from the Greek: βάρβαρος (barbaros pl. βάρβαροι barbaroi). In Ancient Greece, the Greeks used the term not only towards those who did not speak Greek and follow classical Greek customs, but also towards Greek populations on the fringe of the Greek world with peculiar dialects. In Ancient Rome, the Romans adapted and used the term towards tribal non-Romans such as the Berbers, Germanics, Celts, Iberians, Thracians, Illyrians, and Sarmatians. In the early modern period and sometimes later, the Byzantine Greeks used it for the Turks in a clearly pejorative manner." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbarian And still all the other comments about why they're even included have yet to be answered. One was responded to as "thanks for the feedback" and yet left in.

    You chose to call your Native American caricature figure "barbarian".

    A Street Sweeper

    Fantastic little sweeper! Great details in a very cleanly built 4-wide.
  6. Oh this should be good, and disgusting. Just one hair?! Lucky you! All my Lego has hair. Have to do a hair check before posting anything.

    [LDD] The Black Pearl Project

    The link is at the top but it's to the PNG. Here's the link to the main page, the LDD file (.lxf) is on the right. I just opened it and confirmed it still works. https://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=486055 All the work done since that starting point was converted to MLcad. You should be able to use LEOcad if non-Windows but I can't seem to get the MPD file to open. The other .dat files work. Edit: proof that it still works, this is obviously the original LDD and not any of the updated file work. I painted it pink.

    [MOC] Tiny Island House

    Thanks friend, and looking forward to your next creation as well! Thanks Evancelt! The options were a bit limited at that scale. Thanks Feuer Zug! Really glad the story came out acceptable. Thank you Professor Thaum! The Pirates forum is the best, such a great crew!

    Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

    Haha touche. All those cheesy plaster flying saucer props, dusty old Willys MBs and general mid-20th-century tchotchkes cluttering up their stores couldn't keep Fry's afloat. Lego does local homages with Lego-built display pieces. They don't need to source Sequoioideae for baseboards in San Francisco, concrete from the Berlin wall, or shelf steel from old London buses for regional nods.

    Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

    It's called brand, it makes it instantly recognizable and literally every retailer does it. Walgreens, Target, McDonalds, Toys R Us, Best Buy, Walmart, your regional grocery store, Chase bank, Mobil gasoline they all look pretty much identical. These are businesses, for-profit companies; they're not in business to have a soul they're in business to make money. Corporations are not people. So they should ask the mall, which they lease from, to bust out the ceilings and get permitting from the city for skylights, install pointless wooden furnishings and dim rusting artisanal lighting so you can't see anything. You go to a Lego store to purchase Lego, it's not a local heritage site. It's the brand's color. You can immediately identify an employee unlike the Apple store.

    LEGO RPG system

    That's another good solution. But yeah those 1x1 technic axle bricks are still pretty new and rare. I don't think I even have any of those yet whereas your original solution with the faucet/spigot-like piece and clip bricks are much more abundant.
  13. This is why you should always apply moisturizer to your bricks. Sure it makes separating pieces nearly impossible because of how slippery they become, but dang they're so silky and smooth afterwards.

    Angelic Inquisitor

    Unbelievable. When it doesn't even look like Lego then you know you've gone beyond master builder to some sort of omnipotent-tier creator. One of those truly jaw dropping builds. Incredible.

    [MOC ] Pirates strictly come dancing ... (Let's dance)

    Exceptional scene! It ain't all cannons and maps and buried wooden chests; maybe the real treasure is the fun they had along the way. Outstanding interior architecture!
