    LEGO Ideas Discussion

    I think at least one Lego executive doesn't really like the Bricklink crowdfunding program much, but they dislike seeing Lego Ideas sets get made (with the designers getting paid) by the competition even more. So, they allow a little bit, but hamstring it a bit.
  2. There's no reason for Lego to do this: it wouldn't sell as much as a new set. You can either Bricklink the parts (which can be fun), or you can just buy a knockoff, or you can even mix and match the two. Some pieces, like the infamous 4216 in sand green, for which you need 56x for 10185, are available from 3rd-party manufacturers like BlueBrixx. I Bricklinked a 10190 with 100% real Lego parts and while I enjoyed it, today I would probably incorporate some 3rd party stuff.

    REVIEW: 71741 Ninjago City Gardens

    It's not an enormous shelfwarmer. One day, this set will be worth $600 USD on Bricklink and people will be begging for it to be reissued. Don't be that person.

    Chinese New Years sets don't sell well

    It's interesting to see that the tastes of Lego consumers are different in ks6349's area. What themes are most popular there? In the US, a wide variety of sets- not just the CNY sets- go out of stock all the time.

    If you want a modular Sanctum Sanctorum, there is the Mould King 16037 and Panlos 631001 sets. They are not knockoffs, but new third-party modulars that are Doctor Strange-themed. Mould King's goal is to be as internationally recognized as great a toy company as Lego is, their designs are original and their bricks are high-quality.

    Best of LEGO Bootlegs

    I joined the blue team and I have no regrets https://www.bluebrixx.com/en/pirates/104122/Galleon-BlueBrixx-Pro https://www.bluebrixx.com/en/architecture/102818/Bluestone-Castle-BlueBrixx-Special https://www.bluebrixx.com/en/architecture/103301/Western-Fort-BlueBrixx-Special You know these wipe the floor with a lot of Lego D2Cs Mould King has some really neat stuff too https://www.yourwobb.com/products/mould-king-16037-sanctorum?variant=39670779642012 This isn't a knockoff of Lego 76108- they used the facade as inspiration and made it into a Modular Building.

    When you zoom out and look down at the set, the juxtaposition of grey and bright color creates that "enormous 1980s toy" aesthetic (despite being almost four decades later and made with modern engineering standards), like the USS Flagg or Fortress Maximus. In the 2060s, will people make nostalgia videos about this?

    Future Pirates Speculation

    The new pirate ship designed by BlueBrixx is looking pretty damn awesome, if you like clone brands. Expect it in late 2021. https://www.bluebrixx.com/en/pirates/104122/Pirates-Ship-BlueBrixx-Pro

    REVIEW: 71741 Ninjago City Gardens

    Everything Lego goes out of stock intermittently in the US. All this means is that it's not an enormous shelfwarmer.
  10. Have you tried adding sheets of cardboard between the tabletop and the baseplates? Lego boxes would probably give you decent control over the height with how thin they are. Putting them below the table legs seems wobbly.

    On the Bricklink site, TLG says "Due to other obligations the designer has had to withdraw this design from the program. We hope that we will be able to work with the designer again in the future!" for Robenanne's stuff. I wonder if TLG's legal team told Robenanne to pound sand for two-timing them, or if Robenanne actually chose to stick with Bluebrixx's haphazard licensing of the designs. It seems that clone brand UrGe straight up stole them from Robenanne's website, and then BlueBrixx struck a deal to pay Robenanne for the license to sell reboxed UrGe sets under the "BlueBrixx Pro" brand, and all of this happened before the sets were chosen for the AFOL Designer Program. It's a total mess, and it means we'll never see these sets in official Lego form, unless you buy all the bricks for them yourself off Bricklink.
  12. Hello, I have a 75827 Firehouse Headquarters for trade, mint in sealed box. I am in the United States. I am looking for the following: Any complete 10210 (used is OK) Any complete 70620 (used is OK) If your 10210 or 70620 is sealed, I am open to the idea of throwing in some $ to even it out. I will also entertain cash offers in crypto - BTC/ETH/LTC/BCH/USDC/Dai- if you want to pay with something else let me know. Thanks

    I didn't like the Nintendo, either, but there are lots of Nintendo fanboys (we used to call them Nintendrones) who will buy anything with Mario on it. So, at least Lego can move product. The old Mark Rosewater quote "This product is not for you" is very pertinent here.

    We want the amazing 60278 Crook's Hideout Raid!

    As a kid in '95, I would have loved this set. As an AFOL, I don't really care. Today's kids probably want Ninjago or Monkie Kid anyway.

    The typewriter is going to shelfwarm and it kind of annoys me. Jamie Berard once said, paraphrased, that Lego was an artistic medium to transport you to worlds that no longer exist (Pirates), are very hard to gain access to ( various Lamborghini sets) or cannot exist (Ninjago, Harry Potter). Typewriters do exist, and there are tons of them in junk stores that nobody wants. Why would you buy a nonfunctional Lego typewriter?
