    <p> Star Wars is my favourite licence but I'm also fond of Modulars and other Creator Expert sets. </p> <p>   </p> <p> The last set I bought is Hogwarts Great Hall at a discount, though. Last SW set is the CCBS Scout Trooper and Bike </p>

    What a stunning modular! It's detailed, colourful, original… Of course I supported it right away on Lego Ideas If it were on sale I'd buy it right away! (Let's hope this becomes the first Ideas modular building!) Keep up the good work!
  2. Yes, I've received mine today (in a crushed box — even more damaged than usual…), and I must say TLG has let us down again for this final insult… This should have been at least in a proper polybag, not some kind of doggybag!
  3. Just ordered a Han Solo keyring to get the final insult offer from the Black VIP Card… (after getting a code via an e-mail). The postage cost was higher than that of the item… I wonder if it comes in a box or in a polybag…

    [MOC] Balrog from Lord of the Rings

    Beautiful rendition!
  5. I think there was a 20% off discount on May the Fourth weekend, if I remember correctly.
  6. Has anyone noticed that there is no mention anymore of the Black VIP Card "perks" if you click on your VIP account? I was kind of hoping there would be a very last promotion towards the end of the year, but it seems all hope is gone now… This whole thing was a "bloody shambles", if I can quote Lord Sugar.

    2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Wow, I like this one a lot: it's a nice little build, pretty minifigs and colourful accessories. Let's hope it'll be available in Europe, too.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I wouldn't mind a re-release of the Eiffel Tower set (or better, a facelifted version of it), to be honest, but I guess it wouldn't be released at the beginning of the year, right? In any case, I'm looking forward to discovering what TLG will pull off

    [MOC] Moe's Tavern from The Simpsons

    I really like this MOC due to its size and clever details. It's just a shame there's no way TLG could release such a set (beer, cigarettes…).

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Good to know, but everything is more expensive on the Dutch site…

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Thanks for the tip (I didn't know they sent to Belgium); I've just placed an order to get that pack — and the Cloud Rider Swoop Bikes and Luke's Landspeeder sets, which were available for a very good price (at least compared to their RRPs in Belgium ). I'm looking forward to building these!

    [MOC] Hagrid Brickheadz

    This is a brilliant build! I love the details and the size. I hope TLG will ever release a Hagrid Brickheadz of this quality!

    James Bond 2018

    Although I find the model quite interesting (despite such flaws as the partly matte roof and especially the lack of a Bond figure), it's appalling (yet expected) that it costs 20 euros extra in the Benelux! Not buying it at 170 euros!

    James Bond 2018

    From what we can see from this relatively bad-quality picture, I think it's not as bad as some of you describe it… I'd say we have to see till we get pictures from all angles and especially the gadgets. I only think it's a shame we're not getting a Bond figure, but on the other hand it's consistent with the rest of the Creator Expert vehicles… It would be great to get at least a figure (Sean Connery preferably) in another set, e.g. a Speed Champions Bond series (Lotus, 2CV, DBS, DB10…).

    Lego BrickHeadz 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    This would be great news once again — I must say I know very little about Overwatch, so I'd rather get something familiar ;)
