  1. Yeh, but LEGO aren't beyond playing to us nerds. We got Nik Sant in 75094 Imperial Shuttle Tydirium, after all.
  2. I like it well enough. But it's missing Willrow Hood.
  3. Ignore this. Reposted on CC thread.
  4. Perhaps because LEGO Jawas can't sit down? (small legs that aren't articulated)

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Please slap my wrists if this is wildly off topic, but the psychologist Robert Cialdini gives a possible reason in his book of 'Influence', which was told to him by a friend who works in the toy industry. It's about how almost every year, the number one toy at Christmas is undersupplied. Cialdini says that toy companies might do this deliberately, and it is in response to the lull in sales that occurs in January. For years, toy companies have tried to address this lull but to no avail. But one thing has impacted it: advertising in the run-up to Christmas and then undersupplying. What he says happens is that kids see the adverts and nag their parents. Parents make promises that they will get this toy for Christmas. They then fail to buy it because it is undersupplied. To assuage their guilt, they will then buy something of equal value for Christmas. The companies then re-supply and re-advertise the must-have item after Christmas. Not wanting to go back on their earlier promise, parents then buy this too. So the companies double their money. One could, feasibly, see how this applies here. People want the MF. They can't get it, so to make up for their loss, they buy something else. They then get the MF too when that restocks. Just a theory. Sorry if it is too far off topic.

    MOC: Food Truck

    This is brilliant. And also, the first time a carrot has ever graced the surfaces of a food truck.

    [MOC] Ghost Rider

    I'm pleased with your phrasing here because the phrase "I like your chopper" would have a very different meaning in the UK.

    LEGO Star Wars 2014 Pictures and Rumors

    I'm certain that there are more kids who WILL buy the book because of the Luke than there are AFOLs who won't buy it because of the minifugure, so I would doubt that they lost a sale over this.

    [75059] Sandcrawler

    It's not too far off in price as 10188 Death Star in the UK. Hmmm.

    Future Star Wars Sets

    I'd like to see Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru's moisture farm.

    New Licensed Theme Rumor Mill

    I suppose there is precedent for a Jeremy Clarkson minifigure. Most of the superheroes villains are evil, bigoted *******s too.

    Future Star Wars Sets

    There is always a focus on vehicles, but classic scenes are always my favourite sets. I'd love a Cantina cutaway interior, a bit like Stark's Malibu Mansion. Heck, I'd take any number of OT scenes in this style.

    10243 Parisian Restaurant

    One word: scooter. I've been waiting for an official one for a while. This whole thing looks beautiful. Just take a look at that kitchen!

    Why is it "a US based target more than anything"?

    My Proposal to Reform Lego Cuusoo

    Surely the fact that "true LEGO fans" aren't taking these projects to 10,000, it means they aren't commercially viable? By narrowing down the audience, you are making them even more niche. LEGO is a business, and being able to get "cult-followers" from outside interested and buying LEGO is one of TLG's masterstrokes here. They are widening their audience. You want to narrow it. Remind me never to invest in your business. ;)
