    Siren

    WOW! Your work is stunning as always, I remember you from months ago and I only just came back, and hoo boy what have I missed! The use of that blank armor shell, and the hair is stunningly made and shaped. Great parts usage for the sea floor, that Ehlek head and Galidor pieces especially jump out at me.

    Ancient Sea Behemoth

    Wicked. We definitely needed more combo models in 2007. You did great using the Spinax head and sliver teeth for the head, and I just like the shaping of the creature.

    Noctura's Garden

    I remember Elves... that was a great theme and this is a great vignette. Lovely.
  4. I've barely posted anything here in like, months, but I've been trying to get back into creative stuff. So, since I like LEGO's original lines a lot, I'm trying to enjoy what they've got, and Hidden Side's pretty neat. I did want to add a bit more to the sets and world, so here's my first start... a possessed refrigerator! This build should just barely fit inside the Shrimp Shack, though ideally as part of an expansion for the back. It's just a normal looking fridge at first... so you take out the food and- Let me know what you think!

    I love that there's literally only 5 replies to this thread... carry on.

    Shame.
  7. Got my response back from LEGO Customer Service on whether or not the Mandalorian figure in the Razor's Crest is a placeholder figure or not, based on the product description."Thanks for getting in touch with us! You've got a great eye! We appreciate you bringing this to our attention, and we're reaching out for some clarification. We'll find that it's 1 of 2 things.... The minifigure in the set will be as you see pictured, which means we'll be correcting the summary information OR we aren't able to show the actual figure yet due to an embargo by Disney™. Since the set is available for pre-order, we think it's going to be the first situation but I want to be sure! I've made a note of your account and if it's actually going to be a different figure will email you again to let you know. :)"
  8. The Razor's Crest doesn't strike me as a box... what does strike me as one is that First Order Troop Transport. That thing is the epitome of plain, grey, and boxy.
  9. There any hope of them giving the Mando some arm printing? That'd help justify the price a tiny bit more, especially if it is different than the one in the AT-ST Raider.
  10. Well, coming back to the forum after months away... this all sounds very confounding. What on Earth could be the UCS set, and why wouldn't it be an AT-AT when this is like THE year to make one? $160 is pretty wack, I'm also baffled (and will likely be disappointed) that the trend of overpriced sets with almost no good figures to come out of them will likely continue, lookin' at you, Soulless One. And the fact that we're also not seeing more Mandalorian sets is a puzzler, unless that Razor's Crest rumor is true. I suppose things are still somewhat undecided, but dang... it just seems like Star Wars sets are much worse than you used to, and each new iteration is like 25-40% more expensive than the stuff from a few years ago. Ah well. To quote Lando Calrissian, "This deal is getting worse all the time!"

    LEGO Ideas Support Thread: Bionicle

    I'm nervous since I LOVE the project, but it's got some stiff competition. Here's hoping!

    I mean... it would be nice? But, until they show there's a new constraction theme, I'm going to pretend we're not seeing one for a while. The Clickits (seriously?) Friends spin-off and a new IP do sound nice, I'd love for LEGO to have more than 1 or 2 original lines at a time. Who knows, only time will tell... I also have to wonder how many of these leaks are true and how many are nonsense.

    What would you like from a Sci-Fi Racing theme?

    How cool would it be if there was magnetic track and repulsor pieces to let sets actually hover above the surface? It's probably impossible- or at least impractical- to do that, but it'd be so neat to have sci-fi vehicles able to float above the surface when they usually need a stand or wheels (or their bases). That would certainly pique my interest, anyways.
  14. Hmm... looking back, there were a lot of things I don't like about Mars Mission, as nostalgic as it is for me. The color schemes on both sides get pretty repetitive and boring after a while. The normal alien figures are terrible, some of the worst LEGO has made by far. However, the Alien Commanders I love! They remind me of the Independence Day aliens with those mouthplates, and I love their limbs, especially seeing how they're reversed for arms and legs. I could see someone getting them for some semi-realistic designs for Sci-Fi Martain vehicles. The sets I was looking forward to most were the MT-61 Crystal Reaper, MX-71 Recon Dropship, and the ETX Alien Mothership Assault. I know you can also hook up Power Functions to the Crystal Reaper to make it remote controlled, which is awesome! So yeah, there ya go.
  15. I'd assume it means they weren't sold as widely as the 2015 figures, and were therefore harder to find, which doesn't speak well of LEGO's management or support of the theme.
