  1. I actually like the looks of the Crait Speeder more then I thought I would, so I might end up getting it... Then modding it. I'm thinking the cockpit would look good in the center, with the wings extending from there.
  2. 2 Battle on Takodana's from a seller on Bricklink. AU$40.00 each, plus AU$26.85 postage for a grand total of AU$106.85. If I had of bought them from S@H it would have been AU$89.99 x2 (=AU$179.98) + AU$35.00 Postage for a total of AU$214.98. So yeah, I think I did alright
  3. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    What if? What if Lego is switching to detailed heads/faces, but still include extra basic smileys for those who like them? Hahaha. May get involved. Haha... "may". That's a funny joke.
  4. I'd like to amend my previous statement and theory about the Han Solo sets. I only just realized that I'd over looked this This is rumored/claimed/said to be a Han Solo themed battlepack, which assumedly is what the Bp stands for. So how does this fit with my Greek Myth theory? Well Vesta is a Roman Goddess. For those who don't know, before Disney bought Star Wars and made it their own, the Romans "bought" the Greek's Gods and made them, their own. To the Greek's Vesta was Hestia the Goddess of Heath and Home. She was also said to be the daughter of Cronus and hence sister of Zeus. Now going back to those spoilers I said I read (and that need to be taken with a grain of salt), they state that Beckett's daughter would be the character Kira, played by Emilia Clarke. It was also said that the Crime Lord had a female enforcer/Second in Command (apparently Thandie Newton's character). Now either of these two could be "Vesta", Kira being an Ally to Han and Beckett (As Hestia was an ally/sister to Zeus) and Newton's being the big bad's second (and Hestia being Cronus' daughter). Adding a bit of weight to Kira, is the fact that Hestia was said to be a chased virginal Goddess and the spoilers claim that Han and Kira have a bit of a romantic history together, in that Han attempted to woo and pursue Kira, but she wasn't interested and it's said that at the end of the movie, she's still not interest in a relationship with Han, outside of friendship. So there's a possibility that the battlepack will feature one (or maby both) of these characters. And given that we've already got a battlepack featuring 4 named characters and will have another one with 2 named characters before Solo is released, it's somewhat more likely. Then again, I could just be reading too much into it and using fake spoilers...
  5. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    That's kinda what I meant. The suggestion from AFOLguy1970 seemed to be that you'd have to put it next to AS, instead of choosing where you wanted to put it.
  6. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Question; Do people actually set their Modulars up in order of release?
  7. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Forgive me if I'm wrong, as they were released before I got into the Modulars, but didn't the first couple of Modulars have "detailed faces" (ie: not just basic smiles)? Also, isn't there the possibility that these faces are just place-holders? I mean the preliminary images of the Creator Daredevil set had Captain America's torso on the minifig. And the wheelchair guy in the Fun in the Park set had fleshie hands in the first pictures. Just saying I disagree. When I first looked at her head I thought it was a head from one the CMFs. But I couldn't find it amongst them. So I went looking and while I haven't been able to find it, I still can't shake the feeling that I've seen it in another Lego set at some point. So what are you suggesting? That they made the picture with '1026' and then realized they forgot a '0' so they added it in there, instead of just redoing the whole number sequence? I seriously doubt that. If someone when to all the trouble that jdubbs noted, then I doubt they'd be so careless in that one little thing. More likely, as other have said it's caused by crinkling/folds/arching of the paper Yes. Also, when you search for 'Jim's Diner' you get a number of results for different, real, diners named "Jim's". But if you search for 'Jamie's Diner', you get results for one place/chain. Jaime Oliver's Diner. So even if Jamie doesn't normally go by Jim, he might have chosen too for this set to avoid the possibilities of copyright issues. Just like how someone with the last name McDonald could open a burger joint and call it "Mc's Burgers and Fast Food" but wouldn't call it "McDonald's Burgers and Fast Food" due to the very real possibility of being overrun with Lawyers from some other place with a similar name.
  8. If anything it shows just how much effort and work he puts into his videos, that he was able to make you think it was a legitimate video from one of the hundreds of other "lesser" Lego youtubers. I don't think he was trying to parody the whole rehashed sets thing, at least not primarily. I think he's still very much in parody other youtubers/clickbate videos mode. I mean look at where he talks about where he got his information from (and that was the only place he could get it) "The cached version of the Italian Shop@Home site". He's parodying youtubers that get flimsy "information" from unreliable sources and try to pass it off as legit. Or when he goes on about how we're going to see it in the Last Jedi movie and what not. There he's parodying people who make videos that try jump to the conclusion that just because it's made into a toy, then it will be in the movie and/or make outlandish theories about side movies.
  9. Pacific Rim

    Those are amazingly awesome. So I went looking and it turns out the minifigs I was talking about where by Moko. But he doesn't seem to have them on his Flickr (Unless I completely missed them).
  10. Pacific Rim

    I loved Pacific Rim! But Uprising just looks bland. It looks like one of those cheap cash-in sequels that happens because the studio wants to make a quick buck. I don't know who made them and I unfortunately don't have a pic on hand, but some one also made some pretty decent Jaegers out of minifigs/minifig parts.
  11. Future Star Wars Sets

    That would be cool, but I think Wuher (The cantina bartender) would be best left to a future cantina re-release. Maby replace him with one of the other patrons (that we'd be less likely to get in a cantina re-release) like the wolf alien, or the black flight suit pilot that Ben was talking too. Would be awesome if they could release something like this at the same time they release the next Classic X-Wing set (which is inevitable). Maby instead of it being a mechanic and 3 random/generic pilots, it could be a mechanic, one random/generic pilot, Garven Dreis/Red Leader and his astromech R5-K6. That way you could swap out the Luke and R2, who would most likely come with the X-Wing, for Dreis and his R5, if you want.
  12. Future Star Wars Sets

    The license, or more particularly Hasbro's license for Star Wars Action Figures, prevents Lego releasing sets that are purely minifigs or from releasing Star Wars CMFs (Outside of promotions). That's how battlepacks actually came about, they can be made/released/sold because they come with a build, so that's the way around it. That's kinda what I'm talking about. The City People Packs all come with little builds. Sure for a Star Wars version you might have to sure it up a bit. Maby instead of a couple of little things that are 3-10 bricks each, it could be something slightly larger, like a speeder or a speeder bike or both or something. Basically a battlepack, but 2-3 times the size, in terms of volume/figures. That said, it is just a kinda fantastical wish that will probably never come true. But I can dream...
  13. Future Star Wars Sets

    There's something I'd like to see, but I seriously doubt I'll ever see it. Star Wars People Packs. Like the 'Fun in the Park' and 'Fun at the Beach' City sets they did. Except Star Wars. And I'm not talking about doing packs with characters like Luke, Obi-Wan or Rey. I mean generic people that would exist in the Star Wars universe. And not just humans, but aliens too. I'll throw this idea out there; Tosche Station. It'd include a build representing Tosche Station obviously, as well as Fixer's Land Speeder. Minifigures would be Luke Skywalker with his poncho and floppy hat, Fixer and his girlfriend Camie and Biggs Darklighter in his jacket and cape.

    No, there's nothing at the moment, other then idea's rattling around my brain.
  15. ...Yorel

    I understood why they removed the EU from canon and I realized pretty early on that they'd do it, but I think the way they did it was pretty crappy as it still left a lot of people unsure about what was not-canon and what was. But like I said, my only real continuing interest in Star Wars is Lego, which I'm trying to use to create my own head canon universe that borrows heavily from the old EU.
