    Why all the hate for Legends of Chima?

    I guess it's most likely I could be in the minority on this then. I will have to admit that I do get what Lego were trying to do, with (mostly) exploring animals of the Ice Age which are kinda nice. The Phoenix, Tigers and leopards were alright to me. Maybe I would've been mostly fine with it if the fire and Ice stopped there (though even that much fire and Ice will still bother me)? I don't know honestly. What bothered me most with the sets would be fire-souped up vehicles of the animals of the first series like King Crominus' Rescue, Cragger's Fire Striker, Eris Fire Eagle Flyer or Laval's Fire Lion. At that point I think it fully sealed the deal that this is just feels like this theme became a fire vs ice theme and nothing more. Not to mention Bladvic's Rumble Bear too. It just bothered me that we get have some form of the bear tribe and it's fire-souped up... I can't help but to think what if instead of Fire and Ice, we get to explore the vast lands beyond Chima and Outlands. Go even more prehistoric and say, introduce the dinosaurs where each species is a unique tribe and explore new and savage cultures and legends. And...this would also make it possible to introduce old tribes like the bears without everything being deep-fried or deep-freezed. Just my thoughts here again.

    Why are LEGO Elves sets so Sought After?

    Oof, with the price increase, maybe I should've ditched some sets to picked up more elves sets back in 2018 when they were still in store. It's definitely a really good theme. Was having the same feeling about it being just a girl's theme but with the addition of villains, my interest starts to be piqued and that was before I fully explored the theme in 2018.

    Why all the hate for Legends of Chima?

    Personally, first and second series were really enjoyable and pretty good. Sure, the show might be a little hard to watch at first but I did eventually get invested into it, especially the arc in the Outlands and I do like how dark it went. The sets for both series looks really good too for its time. And as partly in Nick's video, I do love the worldbuilding for 2013 and 2014 1st half year. And then came the Ice and Fire chapter...At first, some of the 2014 2nd HY sets seems really cool and first two episodes were quite exciting as they do have a dark tone to it. But eventually (and combined with how much Ice and Fire stuff I've already seen in Bionicle and Ninjago), it got really stale pretty fast, most things felt uninteresting by then. I stopped looking forward to the next episode and instead just watched on to just see how the story ends. While the first season have a lot of creative episodes, this chapter is mostly just warfare and minor shenanigans. With the high episode count for seeing ice and fire all the way, it was just boring. Then there's 2015's wave, by then I felt this chapter has gone on for too long. Sure, some of the sets does look good in a way and there are character that needs to be covered got covered but at that point, with more ice and fire themed vehicles, the sets didn't really excite me and I overall just stopped caring about the theme as I got hooked to other theme such as Ultra Agents, and Ninjago's Tournament of Elements. Maybe if Lego decided to take another approach while still retaining the fantasy jungle spirit instead of Ice and Fire, would it be more interesting? While I'm not sure on the public perception on that, it's just my two cents on the theme. I wasn't part of the hate but I do want to bring this point onto the table as I won't be surprised it tanked due to staleness at the end.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Man, that definitely sucks though I'm not that surprised but still. I definitely have enjoyed the theme overall. It's one of my new favorite original theme in quite a while and still is. Really dig the show with its urban and spooky styled theme that hasn't been around for quite a while. And they have killer minifigures too. Well, it sure was fun while it lasted. I do hope that there a bit more on the miniseries for the summer sets but if there isn't, the conclusion of Lady E's threat is already good enough for me. I really like a lot of the sets, but my favorite sets would be the Haunted High School (As that set had blown my mind when it's revealed), and The Paranormal Interceptor Bus as that's a dope rig. I'm also going to add J.B. Submarine because I do have that and it's really neat little set.

    Ninjago: Masters Of Spinjitsu TV Show Thread

    Same here too. I starting to enjoy it again. Was kinda getting bored with the pacing and "filler" episodes too. And I'm really happy with them going back to using legit flashback again with General Vex's backstory! The "anime" style flashbacks are "kinda" interesting but ultimately I'm not big fan of that at the moment. Looking forward to the final two episodes! I totally dig this plot right now! Sounds like there going to be some good mystery which I like.

    I'm definitely enjoying the season so far! While it isn't the usual 22 minute episodes and the dark tones has been subsided, I find the new format kinda refreshing.

    [MOC] The LEGO Castle of Captain Sabertooth

    Man, this build is utterly amazing! I definitely dig the details and the colors, they're really great! And love the usage of the skull piece from indiana jones line at the rocky stairway path. Also the cave is illuminated quite cozily! This is just incredible!

    [LEGACY] Samurai Mech

    This mecha is amazing! A lot of its detail got me. Even though I have to say that I'm not a big fan of using inverted parts, the other detail such as the entire helmet to shoulder armor package and also limb detail and solidness is quite superb that it still ends up being very appealing to me!
