    Big Gundam fan so this is so awesome! I really like how sleek it is, which is often hard to do with bricks on a mech!

    A great blend of colors and architecture. I also really like the stair in front of the buildings!

Name: 10290 Pickup Truck Theme: Creator Expert Year: 2021 Pieces: 1677 Price: US $129.99 – DE €129.99 – UK £119.99 Available October 1st Boxart The classy black look doesn't always work for me but in this case, it does. It works because of the colorful products that are surrounding the truck which makes the set pop on the box. Content A total of 14 bags numbered from 1 to 8. The stickers are safely stored with the booklet. As with most 18+ Creator sets, there is some info on the model. Though short, because the model isn't connected to any car brand this time. It also explains the idea of playing with the seasons by adding different accessories to accompany the car. A short overview of the steps Not a big fan of stickers, but they do add a lot of charm to the finished model. Bag 1 The most interesting parts are the 2x3 plate with a cutout in Dark Brown and the carrot in a new color! "Spring is in the air!" Fresh flowers and some gardening tools to represent spring works really well here. The wheelbarrow and water can are also on the correct scale "The summer is magic", with fresh-picked fruits and vegetables. And although we have milk all year round, right from the farm it tastes best in the summer as the cows are outside as well! Want to express that Autumn feeling, just use pumpkins! No products this time, just a gift for whomever and a nice Christmas wreath to decorate the car with. The wreath can be a bit tricky to build because round plates don't connect well together if it's attached by one stud. So make sure to have it on a flat surface when adding the next tiles, or else it can fall apart. Bag 2 Starting the chassis with a sturdy Technic frame. Bag 3 Mixing up Technic and System for steering smoothly. Steering mechanism. The door hinges are probably the best thing in this set. It makes using the doors a delight as they pop into place. Bag 4 Upside downside skirts at the front. And using the shields has proven to be a good way for headlights as they have appeared this way before. Bag 5 It's a nice feature to have the engine build this way because now you're also able to take it out and behold it in all its glory. Inside and outside of the door. The ice skate works nicely as a door hinge, the pneumatic part is just a bit too simplistic. On the grill there's a printed curved tile with a V8 logo on it, showing off the powerful engine that lies behind it. Bag 6 To build sideways the back uses clips and bars. Bag 7 The seats have a nice classic look to them and can be easily placed in the car or taken out of you want to mod it. The dashboard uses a printed tile to show all the clocks. And the large curved slope in Dark Red fits perfectly in system with the older 1x6 curved slope. Bag 8 Completing the side skirts gives a nice building experience by using clips and bars again. Though it's fun to build this way, it's not always a very sturdy connection and it leaves a bigger gap as well. The best print of the set is located on the back of the car. A classic LEGO tile, that looks just so good! One of the fun play features is that you can remove the side rails, completely changing the look of the Pick-Up truck. Front view Back view. Having a closer look under the hood. Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear! Comparison of American Muscle! The complete set. It just looks great, the accessories add so much to the car. It's so much fun to rearrange it continuously into other settings. Rating Design: 8/10 Captured the classic feeling of a pickup truck perfectly. Parts: 8/10 A quality parts pack for Dark Red, also a very nice price per piece ratio! Building: 8/10 Lots of fun techniques have been used for building upside down or sideways. Playability: 9/10 Opening the doors, steering, having a look at the engine, or taking the roof off. Plenty to discover in this set. And I think a lot of people will do some nice stuff switching seasons, I wonder how many trucks will be under a Christmas tree! Price: 8/10 More bricks so more car compared to the Porsche or Mustang for less money. Of course, without a fancy brand attached it's cheaper but it still makes the value way better. Overall conclusion: A fantastic set. Building it was absolutely fun, and playing with the seasons is a nice touch!
  4. This is so much better compared to the Old Trafford set! Great minifigs in a for hardcore fans familiar setting. I bet those minifigs and stickers as well are going to be quite popular.

    Great set, turns out way better than I expected. The furniture and the filled cupboards are well done and better than the Friends sets!

    REVIEW | 10279 Volkswagen T2 Camper Van

    I think it's a beauty, I love how the comparison between the t1 and t2 shows how much better looking these 18+ get. The one disappointing part is the scale, though it's never really been about scales but just really about the model.
  10. Regarding the cmf challenge, I've updated it with just a bit more info.

    Guilds of Historica is Awesome!

    Ow wow! This is a very neat twist on the set, love that idea!

    GOH Anniversary, 1st count down challenges.

    And the winners are: CDC1 Tower: Ayrlego A landslide victory. Clean photography, great tower, and without using any snow it feels very Mitgardian. Nicely done! CDC1 Tale: Louis of Nutwood This category was really exciting, but a win in the end. The love of telling stories and combining that with LEGO resulted in a great entry. Well done!
  13. It's almost an amazing 10 years ago since the first members settled in Historica. So, of course, we are going to celebrate this in a fantastic way in October with some amazing prizes. October is still far away, so to kick-off there will be two rounds of challenges. Just for fun, but also as a mandatory threshold to participate in the last round. You need to have at least 3 Guild mocs! This can be free builds, but easier is just joining the fun with these new challenges. So new and old members, have fun and start building for the glory of Mitgardia!!! Or of course a guild of your choice Runtime: July, August, September and October. Results will be announced in November Category 1: Populating Historica(post topic as CDC2 CMF"member name") Like the watchtower challenge, the CMF challenge was incredibly popular. So be creative and make 16 minifigs that fit Historica perfectly. You have to represent all five guilds at least once. So 1 for each guild and going nuts with 11 more for Varlyrio is perfectly fine. A post requires an overview shot of all 16 minifigs and a shot of each one individually with a little bit of information/backstory. For example: past random entry (Only official LEGO parts allowed!) Category 2: Ancient Wonders (post topic as CDC2 Ancient Wonders:"moc-name") Also a blast from the past! Sacred trees in Avalonia, Dwarven statues in Mitgardia, Lava pits in Nocturnus, Beautiful churches in Varlyrio, Oases in Kaliphlin, and so much more. Show one of Historica's Wonders in all its glory! This time first and second place of both categories get two of those shiny new Falcon Knights and a Guilds of Historica Brick. But wait.... There's more.... That's why there's also more time to build. The winner of the first category will also get a(Ninjago set(TBA)) and, drum roll please.... The winner of the second category will get The Ideas Blacksmith!
