    REVIEW: 71043 Hogwarts™ Castle

    I just saw the video, see the weird thing is that I didn't feel and tension/popping into place whatsoever. I will double check to see if there is any. His geometry doesn't seem wrong though, so it's very possible. As of now I don't see an issue, I'll check it when im home. The mod is VERY easy to do on the castle one really wanted to.

    REVIEW: 71043 Hogwarts™ Castle

    There was 0 tension in the bridge... I think Jang might have made a mistake? I'm not sure but I did not feel any tension in the pieces whatsoever. In the case I'm wrong, that fix up there is fairly easy to do since the bridge is a separate build. As for the set I think it's one of Legos best. Aside from the final product there were numerous times where I was just amused with the amount of references and details that were put into it as a I built it. Even friends of mine who weren't Lego fans marveled at it..which has never happened for any other set I've owned. A bigger Hogwarts, to me, is just not feasible for the level of detail I wanted in a set. This set isn't aimed for kids (16+) so it makes sense not to have "playset" features. Even if there are a lot of 1x1 pieces, a licensed set for 400 compared to a SW UCS MF of 800 which only has 1k more pieces is a clear win. I agree with sellee, I don't see how this is "Below" average . I don't understand the criteria that was judged to call it below average. I can understand not liking the set and what it provided from a subjective stand point. To say that it doesn't look like what it's representing or delivers on what the set promises is objectively not true. Thanks for the review.
  3. 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
  7. 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.
  9. 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
  11. 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.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    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)
