    Post about Cartoons and Anime you like

    You're right. I guess I shouldn't complain since true action/adventure shows are hard to come by these days. Those shows you mentioned I couldn't get into either, which is a shame since they do have potential to be great shows if they focused on the story more. I never even watched Owl House since it already looked like just another Star-type show. I was just comparing this reboot to the original. And for many, I think this is the problem. They compare it to the original too much and can't accept the changes. One of the main things I appreciate about Gravity Falls & DuckTales is how they don't take their protagonists off to another realm/dimension like The Owl House or Amphibia do, instead keeping their fantastical adventures grounded to the reality they reside in. Star vs. the Forces of Evil on the other hand is more like Rick & Morty in that it splits its time 50/50 between its "home" dimension and others outside of that.

    My Lego BrickHeadz MOCs

    Wow @LegoGuy03, not just a talented CMF artist, but an excellent BrickHeadz designer too!!! Your My Little Pony designs in particular are quite amusing, I don't believe I've ever seen anyone caricaturize those guys as such before...

    Ideas for a CMF Spooky Calendar

    Dangit, rebooted Batlord Basil is awesome! That's what should've been Series 19's Fright Knight (his new sword mold in particular is just plain cool)! Also, a hairpiece like Mirror Ghost's one would be sorta cool to see from Lego, and I wasn't expecting a house brand Balrog...

    Actually, how does he differ from that previous design? Entirely different inspirations between the two?

    Oh yeah, now I remember you bringing that up on your BrickHeadz MOC topic several years ago... For me, that vintage, halftone art style was one of the main things that actually drew my attention to the show... Well, in spite of that heavier focus on characters that you mentioned in comparison to the original (which again I've not yet seen), at least its adventure element still seems stronger when compared to other modern Disney shows I've looked into. I've tried getting into shows like Star vs. the Forces of Evil, Amphibia, and The Owl House per the advice of others suggesting shows to check out after Gravity Falls, but none of them really cut it for me like DuckTales did. Actually, it's kinda strange that its fanbase doesn't seem to be as big as those other shows' are, and hence it's seldom suggested by others in their "if you liked Gravity Falls" lists... Given that they released it free-to-watch on YouTube right away, pretty much everyone's convinced that's what's going on... How weird that I've never even heard of it before... ...looking into it, I guess it's because it was initially released in Southeast Asia before arriving here?

    Oh, so that's what those are! I guess it was supposed to be obvious...

    [MOC] Art Deco LEGO Logo

    Most exquisite... ...I'd love to imagine what kinda sets one could expect from The LEGO Group of a Decopunk alternate history...

    Lego themes that we would like to happen

    At least an in-house playtheme with a heavy Atompunk vibe taking after Fallout's own heart would be much appreciated. Maybe something like Alien Conquest 2.0 could be the ticket, except with an even stronger 1950's vibe all around; and such a theme could even evoke Fallout's post-apocalyptic setting, with a conflict between the extraterrestrial invaders and rag-tag survivors of the invasion rather than a Halo-esque military force.

    Disney Princesses 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'm pretty sure the character is intended to become a part of the Disney Princess pantheon, at least from a merchandising standpoint.

    Anyone here checking out or keeping up with the current DuckTales reboot? Of all the modern Disney cartoons I've looked into after finishing Gravity Falls, the DuckTales reboot is the one I've found myself the fondest of, and I've never even seen the original or any of the other classic Disney Afternoon shows from then! In spite of such, it's been a ton of fun researching all the easter eggs and deep-cut references they've worked into this show's lore and worldbuilding, and the most recent one-hour Darkwing Duck special was a pretty fascinating example of that...

    Lego Custom Minifigures Series

    You're most welcome! I'd still be interesting in seeing your previous work even if it is license-based rather than original...

    Nice... ...the paring of Turquoise & Red works really well for this design, and his brainy cranium is a nice nod to Mars Attacks...

    Disney Princesses 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Pretty different from what I was expecting too, but with the opposite reaction... ...sorry, but Indiana Jones/Tomb Raider/Uncharted tropes shoehorned into anything is a instance win in my book (even if it's cinematic Disney Princess entry), as I'm just a sucker for that kinda stuff...
