    It's time we fight back: we should flood Korean dating websites with pictures of MOCs!

    Thomas the Tank Engine and The Lego Group

    I can see it now...All new for 2019, LEGO presents a new theme: Terry the Tank Engine! Really, though, I think TLG's best option would be to produce some smaller steam engines and rolling stock loosely based on the original engine types that inspired the Railway Series. Example: an 0-6-0 "Terrier" tank engine, but with neither a face nor a proper name. (I wonder which of Lego's colors is the best match for Stroudley's Improved Engine Green?)
  3. That's one incredible model! It looks even more period-correct in black-and-white film. Nice selection of music too. The beginning sounds vaguely Wagnerian, what is it?

    The theme for tonight's spam-fest: A wall of what I assume are Chinese or Korean characters followed by the name of a prominent university. As to the amount of Korean spam lately, it's pretty obvious that the North Koreans are studying our Lego rocket ships to build a classic space ICBM.

    My purist Captain Picard

    Nice! If only minifigs' arms could be posed for the "Picard maneuver" (fixing his shirt upon standing up)!

    So you mean, for example, that LEGO could potentially secure the rights to produce a minifig of the Fat Controller as long as they don't call him Sir Topham Hatt?

    Can spammers see when their posts have been reported? If so, reporting them immediately as soon as they post might be a good deterrent.
  8. You're right - I actually had that set but had forgotten about it! I love how they gave Anakin a nice smiling face for his rampage! I just thought of this one: Obi Wan and the death stick pusher!
  9. Hi all, I thought it might be fun to brainstorm some SW sets that Lego would never be able to produce. This could include sets based on scenes that are too violent, or just too boring, to make good playsets. We're all adults here, so let's have fun with this! An example: Tusken Raider Encampment including Anakin Skywalker, Shmi Skywalker and several Tuskens. Not just the men...but the women...and the children. Or a Lars homestead playset, with a few stormtroopers and "crispy" Owen and Beru. Or...Trade Negotiations battle pack! Share your MOCs or hypothetical descriptions here and have fun!
  10. I'm sure that 99% of regular LDD builders already know this. It took me ages to discover by accident though, so here are three keyboard shortcuts for roating parts: With a single part or group of parts selected and "movable," where moving the mouse moves the selection, Pressing "a" rotates the selection 90 degrees about the vertical axis. Pressing "s" rotates the selection 90 degrees about a horizontal axis. Pressing "w" rotates the selection the opposite direction from "s." If any of you know other shortcuts that I didn't list, please post them in a reply! Moderators, if this topic already exists somewhere, please remove this one.

    (Work in Progress) EMD F7A in 8-Wide

    Very nice locomotive, and a great improvement on the official model. Your train MOCs are always inspiring and are what first drew me back into the world of LEGO trains.

    Morweens Guild Halls

    Very nice MOC. The colors go together really well and I like the use of rowboats in the gables!

    [MOC] H. L. Hunley

    Where does a Confederate submarine go? Historic Themes, Pirates, or Special Themes? Moderators, feel free to move this topic to the appropriate forum. The H. L. Hunley was launched in 1863 and was the first (somewhat) successful military submarine, sinking the Union ship Housatonic before going down with all hands. HL Hunley by the chestertonian, on Flickr The Hunley was powered by a hand crank and was quite cramped for its 8-man crew. This MOC is approximately scaled to the minifig, as the real Hunley was less than 40 feet long. More information about the real Hunley can be found here: https://www.britannica.com/topic/H-L-Hunley The MOC includes moving dive planes and rudder. The spars on the prow are for placing mines on enemy ships, and air exchange tubes are located behind the forward conning tower. Thanks for looking!

  14. Fantastic creation! All of the buildings, road vehicles, and trains would make great MOCs by themselves, but together the whole is greater than the sum of the parts! I would also like to see a close-up of the church!

    Name of the fictional Lego train company?

    I remember seeing a MOD of the Emerald Night that explained LRTS as the Lego Railway Transportation Society, and that it was a preservation group that had saved the steam engine from scrap. As for the conductor, maybe the modern transit company requires one of their employees to be on board when the EN runs on their lines.
