  1. Amazing. Will be adding this to my collection. How long did this design take you? Do you have any pictures of prototypes?

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    There are connector spots ( technic axles it looks like). Even if it is just for portability it seems that if it does well enough they can totally make another D2C of this size to combine with it. My hopes aren't high but I don't think it's impossible to pull it off.

    Question/Advise on technique

    I was considering that but then I'd have to figure out the windows(since the studs would be interfering with window placement. I wanted to save the masonry for the "foundation" (Bottom of the porch). I do plan on making the house tan with white accents ( pillars, windows fence)... that picture is really bad for colours. I guess I'll see how it looks in Stud.io before. I'm not one to use software for this stuff but I don't have the pieces on hand.

    Question/Advise on technique

    Wow that is beautiful and definitely helps. Thank you so much My idea is to make the floors semi modular so I can remove each section. I guess I just wanted something that aesthetically looks nice while still keeping the basement/the form true to the original, which I think will be not feasible. Also, I'm attempting to decide the texture of the house and have narrowed it down to two possible bricks as I can't think of any others. Either this or this. The first one seems like too much but I'll play around with it. Any other ideas to create those thin vertical lines? Thank you again
  5. Hi there, I recently decided I'm going to attempt to build a scale model of my house. Now everything seems easy enough in terms of scaling since I have the floor plans etc of the house. The only issue I have is the basement. Since the basement is a full level below the mainfloor, how would I go about this? Since the cars parked on the driveway would ideally be on the "floor". Or should I elevate the main floor up 7-9 bricks high and go from there. I've been looking online for examples however haven't come across anything intuitive. Any advice is appreciated!

    Creator Expert Car 2018 Speculation

    As always, people look at leaked picture and hate it, then see the real thing and buy it. It's almost status quo in the last few years. Wait to see it before making a final decision based off a crappy picture on a plastic card. Bugatti had a lot of naysayers and then they magically changed their mind. I too agree I'm not the biggest fan of the proportions as of now but I'll reserve judgement/decision making until I see it for my self. I'm a fan of the Creator Expert vehicles but I think it sort of loses value (to me) when you add a license in there. A separate Aston Martin from other James Bond sets IMO would have been more appealing.
  7. I got EXTREMELY lucky yesterday and managed to find both the Quarter Cylinders(12 of them) and 45705(two of them) for about $1 each all in Dark Orange. I just randomly checked bricklink and it was there. I'll be building this in August in Dark Orange now. Very excited.

    Creator Expert Car 2018 Speculation

    Oh I've seen that. I thought maybe Lego announced something officially. Given the evidence I'm inclined to believe it but never know, they could throw us on a wild goose chase
  9. Wow thank you so much. I've been following this since day one. It looks UNREAL. Given that there is a great shortage of the Dark Orange colours has anyone tried to paint the external tank? I'm debating buying all the parts in white and painting them. It's only the 45705 I'm concerned about. I wonder if there's another way to replicate that shape? Painting is my last option/resort.

    Has it been confirmed? Where?

    James Bond 2018

    I love the idea of a Bond car and maybe it's just me but I like the "plainness" for lack of a better term, of the creator cars. They're not really attached to anything(Franchise wise) and it's why I like them so much. I'm not a fan of Licensed sets (except car brands). I think this will be the first car, if it falls in the Creator Expert line that is licensed to more than just the car brand.
  12. That entire site looks like it was created by a bot. Very odd. Info is wrong too (didn't bother reading past the first sentence since it said the factory was in Italy)

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I don't see anything under the Mincraft sets, does anyone else? Can I also get a PM?

    Yeah. Can you imagine the sheer size of a Mini-fig scale Hogwarts? To do it justice you'd need like 10k+ parts easily. Not to mention the footprint it would create. Many people skipped the coaster cause of space reasons alone. Now think of Hogwarts. Before judging people should wait to see what it looks like. Technic Bugatti had the same issue where all of a sudden people who thought they wouldn't buy it before pictures decided they would after pictures. I'm willing to bet the same thing will happen with this.
