    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    Ok. What was being referred to was the designs, as in the three brand new 2020 designs vs those three 2012-2019 designs (recolors).

    This is the first time I'm seeing those last three parts. That's amazing I want a lot and I want bricklink resellers to get none. Zero. Zip. Nada. But with the way things go we'll probably get those for ourselves at around this time next year after they've bought out all 13,894.

    What if you use the known dimensions of the minifigure or the horse in those pictures and then extrapolate to get the approximate dimensions.

    Lol. I did not know that. I might give it a try but the last time I called Lego it was a very very long wait and I really only want that one part for MOCs. Yeah, hopefully now that TLG owns bricklink they can figure something out for this. So wait it out for months while scalpers gluttonously hoard all the new parts for personal profit. They scour the site every day and buy up as much of all the new parts as they can until they hit the low stock cutoff. As noted above they are also violating the terms and conditions so TLG can (and should) ban these resellers from purchasing from B&P and then reselling on TLG's recently acquired Bricklink. This happens all the time with the newly released parts and is documented regularly in this thread. The new parts are all bought up in no time at all only to appear immediately in mass quantities on Bricklink for 2.5 to 7+ times the B&P purchase price and then it takes months for them to be available to regular Lego builders again.

    And the PLANT, W/ 3.2 SHAFT, 1.5 HOLE, NO. 1 37695 in Olive Green is already sold out. USD $0.15 Lets check bricklink. Nice, lots for sale. Many sellers with between one and two hundred which just so happens to be the quantity restriction on bricks and pieces. Interesting. Price on bricklink: USD $0.38 to over $1.00. Stay classy bricklink sellers.

    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    April 11th order still on backorder. Don't really care about the length of time but even though they run your payment method to be sure you have the funds at the time of purchase they sent an email two months later saying the free gift with purchase was no longer available. Apparently they give priority to those who purchased things that were in-stock, even if they placed their order after yours. If you order something on backorder (you foolish guaranteed, loyal and understanding customer) and patiently wait and not say a word to them the entire time then you're just a sucker. Just a random email "hey you spent over $200 with us like two months ago when the global economy stopped entirely and everyone went flat broke and have made sure to keep that money in your account this whole time just in case it comes in at any moment we'll charge your payment immediately, and we can appriciate that you're an idiot for doing that but we, Lego, ourselves, couldn't be bothered to reserve the thing that we said you were also getting; its probably somewhere in the fine print but yeah sucks to be you nerd, LOL!".

    Why do you collect LEGO?

    For me its all about building. Making something on your own is what it's all about. Official sets are used for parts. The pieces, possible connections, colors and thus total creative potential of Lego today makes the Lego from "back in my day" look ancient, primitive and unattractive. Agreed.
  8. That's indicative of TLGs market research; that none of the figures in any of the series are really risky as previously suggested. Some will like these, some will like those, but there's usually something for everyone. Risky would be making a Kim Jong Un or WestBoro Baptist Church member figure.
  9. The most perplexing thing about this whole discussion is this. So I guess we'll see you in another week. I would like to know that this isn't a successful company. Can you give me some good news?

    [MOC] Modular Eames Case Study House #8

    Hah, nothing. Its a fantastic build. Don't doubt yourself again! Either be a selfless social media promoter or make a great creation. Yours is the latter, I think this will be very well received. Excellent creation and welcome aboard.

    Lego Architecture 2020

    Excellent review and I agree. I have the 2010 set as well and this one is much better even despite the comparatively squashed main structure. I also concur about the grass and roads but its still a more aesthetically appealing set with both wing structures and the increased detail, more refined overall. Fantastic pictures as well. BTW has anyone ever told you that you bear a striking resemblance to Daniel Tosh?

    Contest: The Eurobricks Flower Show

    Eurobricks contests are one of the many things that make this the best site for Lego fans. I can't wait to see what everyone creates.

    [MOC] Micro city

    It just keeps getting better and better! A fantastic array of architecture and building use types. Now I really want those Plate W.Bow 1x4x2/3 in transparent clear you used for the greenhouses. This is a must-check-back thread.
  14. I am aware that the keychains are all of figures that were made prior to being sold as keychains. The picture was posted to demonstrate that 16-20 individually separated figures could be done... from a store sales floor space aspect (Lego store, not Walmart). I understand that new molds cost tens of thousands of dollars averaging in the high 5-figures, recoloring existing parts to new colors is a process and the number of prints available to any line is usually limited for a number of reasons. What's crazy about that, and this is truly unbelievable, is that I learned all of that here despite the fact that I've spent five years just staring at the eurobricks.com/forum/index.php page. I do however slightly disagree with the notion that TLG making more of their most iconic thing is somehow risky.
  15. Haha. What if they put a key ring on the bag's hang tag with the figure inside the bag?! I appriciate the discussion with you and everyone else. I have been going along with the blind bag method to get minfigures for a half a decade and I also don't see them changing from that model. It's just I would personally question my morality if selling toys to children in that manner and like to imagine another way. On the upside I have seen one cool thing from this model. The one time I went to a Lego store on minifigure series release day there was a huge bag-feeling party where we were all figuring out the figures and handing over the ones we found that another was missing or desiring. But I've only seen that on that one release day, and some guys didn't want to participate in the quest. I'm sensing sarcasm but I can't be sure cause of the medium of communication.
