    [MOC] LEGO MARIO KART

    That is fantastic. Always a marvel to see moving, functioning and interactive builds like this. Absolutely wonderful creation!

    MOC: Hospital Spaceship Ceyda

    What a fun, cool build and concept. A spaceship hospital! Really great work on such a large minifigure-scale spaceship. Love the ambulance shuttle and construction of the main engines. Fantastic MOC!

    Is LEGO using the 18+ rating wrong?

    If you use whatever method you prefer consistently.... If you prefer weight then use that. The point of bringing it up here was because of members posting that they think that the sets labeled as 18+ seem expensive (not to debate which method of cost/value is the best, if you're going to debate that then bring up the weights of these sets and lets compare the two methods directly instead of just saying your preferred method is inherently better than the other without doing an actual comparison). The point of bring it up was per posts like this: That was the whole point of bringing it up PPP! The heck? You say it's irrelevant to bring up PPP here and then in the same paragraph state that you think the prices are high across this "theme". That was the entire point of bringing PPP comparisons into this. I demonstrated that the 18+ theme is a bit on the higher side of a price metric and you respond to that with "don't bring this into this discussion its not relevant" while saying the same exact thing that what I said, proved? The f is going on here.

    The 'cheese slopes' do have Lego and the part number molded into the anti-stud.

    [MOC} New collegiate church of Saint Leonore

    Unbelievable creation in sheer scale, complexity and splendor. All those angles and the flying buttresses make this classic church amazing. Legendary work there Alois!

    This is absolutely stunning. Masterful combination of building techniques, parts utilization and color choices. Incredibly gorgeous and most excellent work!

    Is LEGO using the 18+ rating wrong?

    The best way to judge the price is by per piece. Of the 18+ sets (using Brickset 18+ tag as the Lego.com site doesn't list 18+ by theme or age) they are a bit on the high side with the Mosaics being the only ones with a really fantastic PPP ratio that is below the average/good price (~$0.06 per piece is a good to fair price). 20 sets listed as 18+, total of 164.1/20= $0.082 cents per piece average. Considering most of them are licensed content that's actually not that bad, but some of them by themselves have a steep PPP ratio. The Mosaics $0.037 per piece really shifts the average.

    21 now. Shotguns and rifles at 18 though. US Minifigures can die in war but they are NOT allowed to drink or smoke. Murica.

    Help with identifying parts/sets!

    Yeah and you only need to do it once. Locate a less common/rarer piece that you have in your collection, confirm color, now you know. In the Bricks and Pieces thread, even among those who are familiar with all the colors, we're still regularly asking what colors certain pieces are in member's order pics because of the discrepancy in photo color balance.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Always like seeing the official modulars recolored. That looks really cool.

    Help with identifying parts/sets!

    I've been saying it for years that Bricklink should have gotten onboard with the official color names. There are those who are sticklers for terminology and say "you cannot say 'Legos'" because Lego is derived from the Danish phrase leg godt, which means "play well" and thus cannot pluralized despite the fact that its natural to do so in a language like English for example; but then they don't adhere to the official Lego names for the colors. So don't you dare say Legos while I use some made up unofficial terms! You get what I was saying though right, pick out one of the less common pieces in your collection that's in a color that you're unsure about. Then you can more easily correctly identify the color by finding that piece through one of these parts resources. That eliminates the factor of lighting/color calibration and guessing because we know exactly what parts have been molded in what colors. For example you're unsure about Medium Blue. So click on that color in the Brickset guide and then locate a piece that you have in your possession that is in as few sets as possible (it lists the number of sets each piece is in). For example if you own this piece then you have a color to compare to, can confirm which set you got it in and can now more easily distinguish from Medium Azur (the closest neighboring color its molded in) with the lighting you have in your place. Its molded in only a few colors so you know for sure that its one or the other. No monitor/photograph/residence lighting comparison issues.
