  1. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    If anything, I think a half priced modular would make more consumers aware of the line, catching the attention of those who only shop for sets at a typical retail store. But that's only if Lego were to release such a set to all retailers, instead of just keeping it a brand store exclusive like the larger sets.

    So, has the old woman's Robin hairpiece been recolored in grey/white? What predominant colors were her outfit?
  3. Inspirational Modular and Non-Modular Building MOCs

    Though I think it's just a little shoddy, this modular recreation of Flynn's Arcade from both 1982's Tron and 2010's Tron: Legacy by Joel Baker is kinda cool. Flynn's Arcade by Joel Baker

    What I really like about that creation of yours is how it's a seeming blend of the Bat-Pod from Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy and Tron Legacy's Lightcycles. Also, opting for colorless transparent elements give a more realistic, daytime look, which I really appreciate. I also like this retro-esque hovercar of yours too: That's some seriously cool architectural eye candy right there! I also liked these three complementary vehicles done by @adde51for his layout:

    And, unlike the last three incarnations, it would most likely be constructed out of Dark Red as opposed to Bright Red!
  6. Future Action and Adventure Themes

    Well, much like Disney, Lego could introduce their own take on these literary figures, setting them within a roughly inspired storyline and modifying some of the particular character's attributes to make them more appealing to Lego's core audience. But if that means Ninjago-ing the whole thing, then forget about it. But like everything, once tried and failed doesn't at all prove that the whole concept in essence will never work, as it would take at least one other attempt with a different angle of execution to prove whether or not that may be true. Well, thanks for summing that movie up, as I've always been intrigued with the film's concept, but have put off watching it due to it's poor Rotten Tomatoes score. But seriously, do you really think that concept is still very much tainted by that movie even fourteen years later? Is it still that prevalent in the public consciousness? Simple. Still give the heroes voyages to locations like Peru or the Amazonian jungle, but have them defend its native populations from the schemes and conquests of evil lords/barons or supernatural entities. Think of storyline plots like as seen in James Cameron's Avatar or Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire.
  7. That's a pretty fun idea, but it sounds too simplistically archetypical to be done as an entire action theme. But I could see it done kind of as a one-off Creator/Ideas-type set, something like a single flying saucer, with a grey alien, a cow, and two Mulder and Scully like paranormal investigators.

    Incredible indeed, that's a great assortment you've highlighted there!

    These "forced perspective" modulars by L.G. Orlando are a pretty cool concept. Same here too for the most part, but of course, I do particularly dig the Art Deco Streamlined Moderne style of the 1930's and 40's. The cafe in particular that you highlighted sort of more veers toward contemporary architecture; but, like @Bricked1980 had said, the interior and lighting really make it for me.
  10. Another alien invasion theme certainly would be interesting to see, but it'd be cool if this time around it more resembled Independence Day, with sinister looking aliens and futuristic fighter jet defence craft to engage in low atmospheric dogfights. But, in retrospect, I guess the approach Lego did take with the subject of extraterrestrial conquest was probably the best decision for them, as keeping it focused exclusively on abduction kept the theme from pondering or suggesting the concepts of annihilation and/or genocide.
  11. You know, although I've already given my two cents on this series as a whole and of each figure, I find @just2good's opinion on both counts pretty spot on in terms of my own.
  12. Inspirational Modular and Non-Modular Building MOCs

    Oooh, I remember that one. It was also an Ideas project that didn't quite make it to the top, running out of time at about 6700+ supporters. I mean, that Earth Green roof... LEGO Ideas - Hearthstone Bakery A modern modular eh? That's rather cool looking, kinda now wondering how Lego would pull off their own if they ever wanted to head that direction architecturally.

    Bluebird: Gen 2 by LegoGallifrey Dart and Peregrin by Karl Oohlu The Vampire Hunters by @castor-troy Light Steam Landship Mk. LXIII and Jormungandr-Class Double-Boiler Locomotive by Beau Donnan Ah, that's novel concept there! A modular inspired after the retrofuturistic aspirations of the 1950's and 60's!

    And after doing a Amsterdam row house, perhaps the next half-width modular could then take after the row houses of San Francisco, California.
