    LEGO Superheroes 2012 Rumours & Discussion

    Does anyone know if it has to be 25 spent on one set, or can it be multiple superhero sets? And with that could it be like one hero set with other products or does it has to be 25 in full superhero sets? On a side note, I'm starting to kick myself since I already bought most of the hero sets I wanted! EDIT: AW! Scratch that, it seems the promotion is only in England; well I know it's not in the US. Curse you regional promotions!

    From Flesh to Yellow

    I've used sharpies on figures before, though mostly in black to either touch up a figure (Like my precious black and white Two-Face, who now looks like brand new!), or to make custom faces, you know, like putting mustaches on people. I've had mixed success with this, where sometimes it would come off after I touched it, and other times it stays on for months. Personally, I'd never attempt nor want to change a fleshie to yellow. I like both types, but I like them for different reasons--yellow for it's diversity, and flesh for the fact that all the Batman figs are in that color! Though I do find it as one of the biggest Lego sins to place both flesh and yellow figs in the same creation--it's just not right!

    Friedchikenfairy's Purist Marvel Minifigures

    These look great, especially for being purist! I love the lizard one, that head is perfect. Can't wait to see more ones!

    Your dream Lego theme

    Above all dream licenses I want (Aside from DC/Marvel heroes, which came true!), I would be ecstatic if they created a James Bond theme. It would fit well with Lego, as long as they edit some of the more...inappropriate things. There's amazing vehicles, exotic locations, and a legion of characters both heroic and villainous. I would gladly pay for a cool Fort Knox attack set, or a boat chase, train fight, heck even a volcano lair. And while the old Agents theme kind of ripped off James Bond, there's still a part of me that hopes a true 007 theme will arrive at some point.

    PAB Cups: What Did You Get?

    I've gotten some really nice bricks from my local Lego store. The store just opened this summer in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin and so on opening day--in addition to getting a cool mini-model of the store--I got a PAB cup which contained around 70ish 1x2 bricks in trans-clear (Oh Yeah!), a couple hundred 1x1 trans blue studs, for water of course, a couple brown barrel pieces, some plants, and then some other bricks. I've been back there a couple times, and have found great rare pieces. I've gotten 70+ 2x2 tiles in dark tan (Which by the way I think is my favorite piece now!), and more 1x2 trans bricks, but this time in dark brown trans! So yes, I love PAB cups--I'll have to go back for more soon!

    Hello Eurobricks!

    Hello everyone! Thanks for replying, hope to see you all in other forms here! I'm a big Batman/Superhero fan so you could see me in the licensed sections.

    Hello Eurobricks!

    Hello Eurobricks, I've been an outside viewer of Eurobricks for a while now, and I joined a few months ago. I’ve been a fan of Lego for years, and am now entering the tough stage of copping with college and keeping a Lego life. I've have had problems when attempting to join, in part to my forgetfulness (In terms of my Username, Password, etc), and in an inability to find answers to my questions, so I really haven’t done anything since the many months when I first joined (And subsequently picked a username I now don’t like). If anyone could help me out that would be great, as I also can't seem to find any way to contact moderators, admins, etc—since I can’t send messages. The main thing I wanted to change my username (Or if not possible, be able to remove my account to start anew, which is another problem entirely), but am unable to do so? Is it possible to have a moderator/admin/etc. change it for me, or do I have to wait until I post enough? Thanks, and I hope to become a great member of Eurobricks ~Tim

    Conversion from Vampyre Castle to Arkham Asylum

    This is a great conversion! It's perfect for a small Arkham, and best yet, the majority of the building is already ripe for conversion in the Asylum. I hadn’t thought of another use for this castle, and with this possibly, I may want to pick one up now!

    Favorite 2013 Superhero fig

    For DC, my favorite is Dr. Harley Quinn--she's just a really clever minifigure, and I hope that she has a great double print on her head--possibly showing her painted face. Doctor Doom is my favorite Marvel character, though is face is a bit too cartoony for me. Venom is in a close second, since I really like his tentacles, but without them I find him kind of bland.
