    Which are the printed elements? I am only seeing the eyes on B&P and Brickset. Edited: just found them on the manual. Sorry, I am dumb... Edited 2: The Lego House isn´t available anymore...

    Really nice work on the beach and staircase! Congrats! I was a little bit concerned how the stairs initially looked but it turned out really good. Any picture of the beach placed in the layout? Keep the good work and let us updated!

    That is cool, congratulations! The mini buildings of the landmarks was a great idea.

    Maybe not, really. But since their recent focus on adult buyers it may worth a shoot. Like having a link in the manual to the digital instructions and a way to provide the needed bricks, like an auto basket for PaB / B&P services. Yeah, I am dreaming too much, just brainstorming.

    I probably will, but that will take some time and effort. And I know a lot of people that like Lego trains but are not so enthusiastic and/or are still MOCs beginners. This type of iniciative could help gather more fans from casual buyers.

    I understand that from a selling point of view just the lococomotive in a stand makes more sense to Lego. It keeps the price down, most people would not care for extra cars. Train fans that you like cars will probably build them. However it would be nice from Lego if they provide options to expand the set. I know extra cars sets don´t sell but maybe to put some official instructions available? Lego don´t need to sell sets or bricks (although people will use B&P service) only provide instructions (most likely using only in current production pieces). It would be a nice way to foster and engage the community. Put a panflet or note inside the set to direct the buyer to a Lego established fan community. However I have fears the copycats may take advantage of extra instructions....

    Question is if we will be able to add Power Functions/Power Up to make it run in tracks. It does not seen to be able to handle curves very well.

    No, that column is for the total price of the number of the itens. Price was probably wrong and I am wondering if it will go through or charge differently as already happened in the past.

    That is some crazy prices here. 200 pieces for a total of US$ 0.02 ??? They realy just charged you that? Those golden pieces are already out of stock.

    Looking for a Modular-MOC designer to work with

    I don´t think you just ask for the bricks. That is one of the reasons you got the backlash early on, and Carbohydrates summed the others very well. First, sometimes not even the creators can affort the bricks themselves, that one of the reasons they do digital projects. That is true for the Bricktoria pub, the creator first saw the real build from others (not sure if he alredy built it himself now). Second, creators are all around the world, shipping can be expensive. The best approach may be you cover the cost of the bricks yourself, and find a way to have a refer code to your followers. Like giving 10% to discount on the purchase of the instructions if they use a code from your posts. Then the creator knows how many sales came from the exposure you gave, and can also provide you with a percentage of those sales.

    That is an great idea. I will not be able to make a smooth road this way (as I was trying to cover its surface with tiles, and that was the struggle) but the studs have some appeal. Like an old road. Regarding monorails or custom tracks I will try to avoid them, my costs are already high 😀.

    Great work!!! Thanks for sharing your progress. I am curious about your thoughts and planning on building brick built roads. I am struggling at the moment to come to a solution for my layout (planning digitally first to order the pieces). My main problem is that I want to integrate a train track at the road to serve as a city tram line. But the corners are a challenge, I can’t find s solution that looks good enough.
  14. Thanks for sharing! And great work. I will be buying the BSG Viper sheet from you eBay store, but I also want to know: do you offer custom print services by the way? Like if I provide you with an artwork for stickers, are you able to print a sheet? PM me.

    Lego Masters Australia Season 02 Impressions

    In creative terms it was very weak. They even already did a tower in the first episode. But it was structurally ok. But bottom tier I agree. I agree Brickman was too harsh. Normally he always find something nice to say about a build even if it was bad (see the girls house on the first episode). But also, he doesn’t like to be ignored in his advices, what they flat out did. Yes their castle was estheticaly beautiful, righ colors, but it’s structure was very weak. I agree. Also their gingerbread house was great. They became my favorites after this episode.
