    LEGO Star Wars 2020 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    The AT-AT is kinda okay-ish for me. I like how they were able to do all the interior parts. It even fits the speederbike like the original! But for some reason it feels off... maybe it's the very skinny legs compared to the more bulkier body/head. Or maybe it's the size of the head compared to the body. Or maybe all of the above. At least my wallet will be happy. Also does anyone else feel the angle the shot was taken for the boxart is a little weird? I just feel the shot doesn't do the set all justice it deserves, much like with the AT-M6's boxart.

    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Getting major JackStone vibes from the lineup so far. Just not my thing. At least they did try to make the big plane different, since we´ve kinda had the same one in different colors since 2005 (?). My wallet can relax again :-)

    [MOC] Modular Toy Store

    Looks great and fits nicely with the other modular buildings. Have fun creating it irl :-)

    No, but the fact they use a kinda lazy aproach for a small problem which has been solved years ago, having a very steep parts-price ratio and still asking more than top dollar does make it not worth the price, for me. I do think it looks cool though, but just not worth that price. Hopefully the AT-AT will be better

    Thoughts on TROS?

    I grew up during the Prequels, which are considered by many some of the worst Star Wars movies. I loved TESB as a kid, and was always dreaming of owning the old AT-AT walker. I did like episode 3 as a kid, mostly because of the awesome visuals and worldbuilding, something the OT did right too, but the PT is much more massive (while sacrificing story, character development and such). Now I wasn't into Star Wars that much when the new movies came out, but TFA was okay, I really liked Rogue One (almost as good as TESB), but after that with TLJ and SOLO, I just didn't feel it anymore. I really wished I could be excited for this new movie, get my hopes up and actually see them fullfilled, but the new trilogy lacks so much for me. I feel it doens't do a good job at worldbuilding and the story is largely a mish-mash of PT OT and EU stories. I do like that ol'Palps is back, but that's about it. I do like the trailer, some of the new vehicles (we seem to be getting a lot of those). Then to me Star Wars is also more than the movies alone, Lego and games are part of it too. Now there was a large controversy about the Battlefront 2 lootbox debacle, which also lowered my exitement for the new Fallen Order game. All in all I think Dinsey made a lot of mistakes the past years, causing me to not be that hyped about anything Star Wars related anymore. I do have some hope for the Mandalorian, (Sorry for the long story)
  6. Yeah it does influence my purchase desicion. Episode 8 & 9 (and probaly 10), together with Rebels are all a no-go for me. The designs of the vehicles are just not for me I think. I did like the Solo and Rogue one movies a bit better, and I liked those designs more so I bought a few sets. I really really hope the Mandolorian is any good..

    LEGO Star Wars 2019 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    Ofcourse everything is relative, but I don't think the new Yoda is that appaling. Not that I would buy it, since I'm not into those figures but I think they did their best to make it look like an actual Yoda. The only thing that really has my attention is the new Supreme Leader Kylo Ren's Shuttle. I missed out on the older one (on purpose) but I do kinda dig the overal design and the fact they actually made it accurate now makes it very tempting to buy it. The figures are cool too, and I hope we get a battlepack that includes those Sith troopers (and hopefully a jetpack trooper too). The rest of the wave is a little meh to me. Nothing really new, just improvements and color changes, which kinda sums up most of the ST for me.

    Lego City 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    Yeah, looking at the next quarter line-up of a certain Chinese brick producer it does look like Lego gets more cautious with preliminary pictures for good reasons... Still, if it's anything like the above example I would be quite happy

    [MOC] Modular Train station

    Hi everyone, In this topic I wanted to show you all my progress on my first modular building for a new city called Canalview. Currently I lack the space to actually display a city, so I wanted to really take the time to design and create each building. The first one is a grand central station. In the past years I made several attempt to create such a building, of which some are more succesfull than others. Here's a quick summary of my earlier attempts: Canalview Grand Central Station 2017 After months of hard work, the station has finnaly been finished. More pictures below and here More pictures of the station (with interior) can be found here Older updates Update 26 November 2017 Update 17 September 2017 Update 26 August 2017 Update 14 August 2017 Update July 2017 Hope you all like it so far, please if you have any comments or tips feel free to post them

    Train MOCs and Builders - Who/What is Your Inspiration?

    My inspiration comes from a lot of builders (mostly on Flickr), but for my latest building I was inspired by Feanor-001´s train station: Which resulted in my own train station:

    7755 With led lights

    Nicely done! As a kid I loved drooling over the pictures of this train, with these lights it's even more impressive! I'm a conformist!

    Exxon Version of 6371

    Indeed an interesting find. I do however wonder why it was never released though.

    Homemade Road Plates

    These look really nice, and they almost look like the real things. It seems like a really good alternative to the ones Lego sells, especially since they combined the kind of roads (t-junction with curve and the crossing with straight road) which is not my favorite strategy for these kind of things. Are you planning to create more custom prints for these? Like a bicycle or bus lane?

    [MOC] Central Station

    Have seen the station in the link provided in your first post. I really like it and it seems tot be very fitting with a southern European setting. Have you also build it yourself in real life?

    Lego technic yellow train bridge from 1993 ad

    Years ago I saw that bridge in the add and dreamed of making it. By the time I had enough pieces I lost the add without a copy. Its really nice to see someone else really recreating it. Here's my attempt:

    2018 Lego Trains

    Am I the only one bothered by the fact we 'again' get a new system? Because I'm kinda bothered by it, because that would mean we get less spare parts for the current PF in the future, just like what happened to 9V.... I would have prefered it if they just kept the current system and expanded it a bit since I think it's near perfect. But maybe the new system is even better, well, time will tell
  17. Cool, those pictures of your childhood layout look really nice. Wish I had that much space as a kid Hopefully you'll have enough room in the future to build all those boxes (once again)!

    Lego Trains getting lighter?

    Hi everyone, I recently was holding my Horizon express train and noticed something. The cars (so not the engine) were very light, even so if I didn't know better, would think there weren't a lot of pieces involved. I had the 2006 High speed passenger train 7897 and noticed also that the car was very, very light. Same with the other two recent passenger trains, and the passenger car from the Emerald Night. On the other hand, as a kid a friend of mine had some cars of the Santa Fe Super Chief, and they were kinda heavy (in my memory that is) compared to my own 7897. Looking up the instructions of some of the older trains I also noticed it almost seems more pieces were involved. I'm kinda sad by this, since I think the cars of a train are just as important as the main engine of it. So my question is, does anyone who owns several trains of several eras also notice the difference in wheigt between the passenger cars? And what does that mean for you?

    2018 Lego Trains

    I disagree, in the way that I meant it is just another two or three piece front for a high speed passenger train, just like the last one. I was hoping more for a regional train concept, like the passenger train from 2010 with a brick build nose. Not that I'm complaining though, because I kinda like the way they handled the colors with this one.

    2018 Lego Trains

    Having seen the pictures of the new passenger train, my opninion about it is kinda mixed. On one hand I really, really like it that Lego finnaly is using a train color schemes which aren't mostly red and white, or white and red. But on the other, it just feels as a redesigned version of the current passenger train. But then again, most high speed passenger trains here in Europe kinda look alike in a way. On a last note, I think kids will love it.

    Wait, what? Where would one find such a video

    2018 Lego Trains

    I think the price seems a bit steep because the source got the scandinavian prices which are always much higher than most other countries. ..249,99€ is insane for a regular train set.

    First post has been updated, the station is now really finished!

    LEGO Star Wars 2018 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!

    I can confirm it does appear in the artbook for TLJ, so at least we have some proof. It is also mentioned in the visual dictionary so even though it did not appear in the movie it is probaly still a canon vehicle.

    Concept Station

    Woah! As the creator of the LDD concept for this I'm really happy someone even took the time to recreate it in real life! It was build after my concept right (picture below) ?
