    Should LEGO Star Wars take a break?

    I think that as long as they have the ability to make money from it they should keep making it. I only got into Lego about 4 years ago (in my mid 30's) and about 30% of the sets I have bought are Star Wars sets. These would have all been re-releases or at least different sizes of previous releases. I only have a couple more Star Wars vehicles I want to buy and I will likely no longer buy Star Wars anymore. By all means I am not a huge Star Wars collector, only really have original trilogy sets with a couple of exceptions, however I am sure there are many people like me who will get into this hobby over the next few years and want to buy that classic X-Wing, Millennium Falcon, Tie-Fighter. While I'm sure having recent movies or shows will increase younger audiences (and potentially new audiences or set designs) there must still be more than enough people wanting to buy these sets for themselves, or for their new kids/nephews/nieces etc. This constant breeding that keeps going on will often result in a new young market kids who would want (or whose older, Star Wars fan relatives will want to gift) a recognisable vehicle. These people would likely never buy from E-Bay, BrickLink or similar so constant re-releasing of the old sets will find a market there. If Star Wars was replaced with another space theme (except maybe Star Trek) I can almost guarantee I would never have bought any of the sets.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10267 - Gingerbread House

    It will be going into my Winter Village - and I know right now my daughter will love the fact it has a bathroom - but I will be turfing the gingerbread parents and removing all trace of them from the house. The baby will make it into my WV, it will be for sale in the market cookie stall.

    Q&A: What is your favorite LEGO Vehicle?

    From City/Town it is really just any police cars. I don't think Lego can really make enough of these. The kids just love playing with them so we have a few. From a non-City/Town perspective my favourite vehicle that I own would be the 75192 UCS Millenium Falcon; favourite that I don't own is the 7784 Tim Burton Batmobile.

    Which is the best CMF Series? ROUND 2 Group C

    Series 5 for me, followed by series 16. Some great figures in 5 including Detective, Gangster, Lumberjack, Royal Guard and Zookeeper.

    Which is the best CMF Series? ROUND 2 Group C

    Season 16 for me. It was actually close with Batman Series 1. While there were more Batman figures that I would want overall - there were a lot of random villains which I see as a waste of time. It was actually the figures that I didn't want that decided this for me rather than those I did want.

    Which is the best CMF Series? ROUND 2 Group C

    New to minifigures so don't have many of them. Series 12 has the most that I would want out of the current round.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    While it is not the Winter Village set there was the Xtra bag which I haven't seen in this thread which includes (among other things) a husky, snow shoes, and fence parts which match the ones in the Christmas Town Square from a couple of years ago. I saw in on IG so not sure if the image can be posted here.

    Help with identifying parts/sets!

    I am looking for is a chisel or a piece that a minifig could use as a chisel. I haven't been able to locate a specific chisel part and was wondering if anyone knew of one or a substitute. I will be using the new Harry Potter deer piece as an ice sculpture in my Winter Village and want to have an artist with a hammer and chisel making the finishing touches on it. Never mind. I have come across a screwdriver piece (Item No: 11402a) which will substitute nicely.

    YER BEST CASTLE SET - ROUND 1 GROUP 6

    10193 - MEDIEVAL MARKET VILLAGE - easy pick for me this time. Nice set to build around a Castle. It can't be all walls and knights.

    YER BEST CASTLE SET - ROUND 1 GROUP 6

    I've gone for King Leo's castle this time around. I like the addition of a small element attacking the castle. Which gives it more playability. Black Falcon's fortress was second followed by the Blacksmith Attack.

    YER BEST CASTLE SET - ROUND 1 GROUP 6

    While I do like the Wolfpack tower I am going for Vladek's attack this round. I like the idea of a good battle playset in one purchase (even with all the panels). Plus the Wolfpack tower is clearly getting through.

    YER BEST CASTLE SET - ROUND 1 GROUP 6

    6080 for me. Love the classic grey castles. 6090 would have been my second only just beating 6077. Man I wish I had those sets.

    There are 8 random sets per round. 6096 will turn up eventually.

    YER BEST CASTLE SET - ROUND 1 GROUP 6

    6079 - Dark ´╗┐Forest Fortress for me. Have to vote for at least one of the Forestman sets. A few army builders on this one. The knights followed by skeletons would have been next for me.

    YER BEST CASTLE SET - ROUND 1 GROUP 6

    7029 for me. I just prefer the grey to the white castle. Blacksmith shop a close second.
