    Displaying Larger Sets in a Small Space?

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I ended up managing to squeeze a 2 x 2 Ikea Kallax shelf unit into my space which now has 2 shelves (and the top) dedicated to sets. It doesn't hold quite as much as I'd like so I'll probably have to downsize a bit, but overall so far so good!
  2. I recently moved into a really small apartment, and haven't quite figured out how to display my larger sets (specifically my Hogwarts display and 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay) that are too big to put on wall shelves. Anyone here have experience displaying larger sets like this in a small space? Any suggestions?

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Picked up the Fluffy Encounter set the other day and it's pretty nice imo. While they're a bit flat, I'm really liking this new system as a companion to the last 3 years of sets. The modular design makes it really easy to modify the sections to fill missing spaces, since most of what we're missing from the previous 3 years worth of sets was corridors and the belltower, both of which are incredibly easy to approximate with the new system. The fluffy set itself is pretty nice too imo, it's *mostly* accurate, and looks really good connected to the 2018 Great Hall which is where it would go canonically to my knowledge. I'll definitely be picking up the two smaller sets when I can find them, although I'm thinking that integrating/converting the Chamber of Secrets into my existing display is going to be quite a bit more work.

    [REVIEW] Fun with 2021 Modular Hogwarts

    Thanks for making this thread, it's giving me a lot of ideas for how to use these new modular parts to fill in structures that we were missing from the last 3 years. Imo there's enough potential with configurations here that it'll be possible to build a pretty convincing version of the bell towers and the dark tower. Something else worth noting is it looks like it would be possible to setup like a multi level shelf to add the rocky parts below the 2018 Great Hall without making it impossible to connect up everything else. I'll definitely be picking these sets up at some point if only for the sake of trying some things.

    [REVIEW] 40516 - Everyone is Awesome

    Pretty cool to see a set like this made. It's not something I'd personally be interested in buying but I'm glad it exists for the people that would be. I'm going to try to avoid dipping my toes into the whole political discussion that's going on, although I will say that I think representing and accepting diversity in all forms is never a bad thing, and I'm happy to see that Lego seems to want to send the same message.

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    Just saw that this new wave has a ton of new Hogwarts bits and it looks like they're all compatible with the last 3 years of sets! That said, where will they each fit with the existing bits? Apologies if this has already been discussed at length, I'm not fully caught up with this thread just yet.

    Dream Lego Licensed Themes

    There's a couple of licenses I'd love to see Lego tackle, even though they're all definitely never going to happen: Shrek - we've already seen minions and trolls, so this would be a lot more likely than some of the other licenses I'd enjoy seeing. Indie superheroes - This is a lot farther of a stretch, since most of them are pretty adult-oriented but I'd love to see characters like Spawn or Invincible done up in Lego form. The Elder Scrolls - This is the kind of theme that could go for decades. There's so much to this franchise's world that would look great as sets, plus it would be a great new Castle theme when Harry Potter eventually runs its course. Thief - Definitely never going to happen since the franchise has been dead since they screwed up the reboot, but still. Dishonored would be another fun one. Magic the Gathering - As much as I dislike what Wizards has been doing with it of late, I love the idea of seeing sets set on different planes with different characters. This is another one that would make a great castle theme, but without the limitations of being strictly castle since the Magic multiverse covers all different genres just through a fantasy lens. Dungeons and Dragons - See Magic the Gathering. Sea of Thieves - Has potential to be a pirates theme without the historic problems that classic pirates had. More Nintendo properties as a whole! Zelda would be cool, so would Pokemon, or even Animal Crossing.

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I mean, it kind of is? It's the same character, they just did a more comic accurate version of him as opposed to the more classic-inspired version we saw in AoS. You could always make a pretty close version of the AoS one by using the other Ghost Rider head right?

    Purist Superhero Figures

    I guess it's probably better to post it here than in the superhero's rumors thread, so here we go. I started redesigning the brickbuilt wings that came with one of the recent Vulture figures to be more comic accurate. The figure's torso print seems to be inline with the Ultimate universe version of the character, so I took a bit of inspiration from that.In terms of sizing each wing is 3 studs smaller horizontally, and the backpack thing has been completely removed in favor of one of those back pieces with the 2 pin holes and a couple of mixel balls plugged into them. I'd like to bring the feather tiles in a bit closer, maybe one stud under the rounded plate would be ideal, but it's still a work in progress. C&C always welcome :).

    Hoots! Gloryhammer, ready for Epic Battles

    Dang, there's a Gloryhammer thread here? Your customs look pretty good! I've got a few purist ones I put together for Angus XIII and Zargothrax myself. Angus is based on his design in the most recent music videos and Zargothrax is based on how he looks on album covers. I'd post them, but I don't want to derail your thread.

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I saw some really high res photos of the new Spider-Man and Miles figures. They look so good! I do think that the arm printing on the blue isn't opaque enough, but that can probably be solved by putting those arms on the 2012 torso to get it all nice and consistent.

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Just saw the new leaks, Mysterio's helmet is definitely an improvement. Hopefully the reuse of the torso will mean its easier to get ahold of now. Ghost Rider definitely looks better from that angle, and I think he'll look even better than that in person.

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'm really digging that Robbie Reyes Ghost Rider, it looks very comic accurate which is nice, and since the set it comes in is $25 here in Canada and also comes with the new Spidey figure, it's an easy buy for me. Same goes for the new Miles figure although I might wait to see if it ends up getting really cheap like the other mech figures have and pick up just the figure. It'll probably depend on the parts list for the mech.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    These look so cool! I especially like the eerie wendigo-looking design they have going for the big bad! Anybody have ideas for what could be used to moc something along those lines up? Maybe something about the size of the version of him we got in the firetruck mech? That would allow the use of the cattle skull piece... Edit: I just watched the halloween special thing that they ran, they definitely tease a bunch of monsters that may or may not be extinct, as well as confirm that there's countless different realms with life in them. I don't want to be optimistic but I think it would be really cool if they were to retool this theme to be more along the lines of fighting extradimensional beings as a whole. A lot of the past sets have a really heavy lovecraft feel, it would be really interesting imo if they were to continue this theme leaning heavier into that.

    Harry Potter custom builds and moc's

    So in terms of placement, I've currently got Snape's Office next to The Quad's Entrance, and the Potions classroom parallel to it, next to that tower piece that's got a bathroom and Dumbledor's office in it. Speaking of which, isn't Dumbledor's office supposed to be in the big tower connected to the great hall? And if that's supposed to be Myrtle's bathroom, it should be on the other side of the display right?
