  1. Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I'm not quite sold on the colour. I'd only just got used to the blue.
  2. LEGO Pet Peeves

    We're not arguing against minifigures, just where the rest of the set is minimal with the focus only on a couple of minifigures. Battle packs and city people packs are fine too, as we would all like to bulk out our population.
  3. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Hear, hear. In my view, buildings need to be a minimum of 16w to function (unless anyone can come up with a narrower one that still manages to have a proper staircase etc.). When I can, I'll be getting hold of a second BB to make it into a proper corner building (it has this impressive facade and yet you go around the corner and the rest is tiny. Having done this, I'll be rebuilding the laundrette. Stories should certainly be left to the end user. The proposal in PR is fine as you can always just leave out the ring part if you don't want to do it, the minifigures can have other uses. The cheque in the BB is OK too but the robbery thing is pushing it. The PC premiere theme is a bit borderline too, I'd rather just ditch the car and have a generic night at the movies. Talking of cars, I quite agree that unless a car is essential, it should be left out. I'm not really sure that a hypothetical police station needs a car either as unlike a fire engine these are usually kept outside.

    I think it was more about the timing than the colour of the heads. Star Wars figures were among the first that could be considered to be "collectable" compared with the more generic ones seen beforehand, more so when the colour changed.
  5. MOC Public Aquarium

    I was more thinking of copying the layout rather than using full-size components. 3mm LEDs should suffice.
  6. MOC Public Aquarium

    Having some of the larger animals slowly swim around would be nice but it's not very practical for dolphins as they are in a jumping pose. The best thing to do lighting-wise would be to look at a real aquarium and see how tyey arramge their lighting. Then hide a few LEDs and solder them up.

    It isn't really any different to people who talk about a flock of "sheeps". Sure, we shouldn't fall out over minutiae but every time I hear it, it sounds like fingernails on a chalkboard.
  8. Bricklink and shipping costs

    Yes but when you are bringing things in by the container load, the amount of handling is substantially reduced compared with individual parcels. Tariffs will also play a big part.

    Doors in this country must be of a contrasting colour to the rest of the bodywork. Swing doors are still in use in many places. A sliding plug mechanism wouldn't be impossible though.
  10. Bricklink and shipping costs

    Same happened to me. Transatlantic shipping isn't cheap!
  11. LEGO Pet Peeves

    As I understand it, that is to make the instructions clearer when a mass of the same colour would make everything just blend into one. Creator Expert instead outlines things in yellow.

    They probably call their vacuum cleaner a "Hoover", their sticky notes "Post-its" and say that they are "Googling" something even if they are using Yahoo. Just like a lot of people.
  13. Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I'd be surprised if there was another fairground set so soon after the last one, the designers are only allowed to introduce so many new sets each year in Creator Expert. There were two years between the ferris wheel and the carousel. When it does come, it probably will be a roller coaster. It was almost implied in the recent interview that they had a design ready to go but the parts weren't ready for production so the Carousel came first. To be honest, my budget still has some catching up to do anyway.

    That's true, anything that moves will attract attention. What they might prefer to buy though when looking at a picture on a box may be different. I certainly think that the lack of a simple steam train in the range doesn't really help.
  15. How did you come out of your Dark Ages?

    I worked the 2016 season at Legoland Windsor. The first discount allowance went to family but my contract got extended into Jan 2017 and I got three modular buildings plus the ferris wheel. No longer there so am now having to pay full whack plus catch up on lost time with the older modulars.
