    Ideas for CMFs

    Dang, Robert8! Blown away, as usual! That steampunk guy is really cool - if LEGO made this series (which they NEED TO , as usual...) I would get him and use his torso/legs for Watson in my Sherlock Holmes MOC. I also really like the Landscaper and the Expectant Mother. I would get them both and give the Landscaper to a good friend of mine who is actually one. And I could give my mum the Expectant Mother one - she's had 9 kids, and maybe it would get her to not be so indifferent towards LEGOs any more?
  2. I agree...something more than our typical CITY stereotypes: "bad guy in a boring, printed-on and hardly concealing mask" "bad guy or girl stupidly jailbreaking someone else out pf prison while still wearing their own prison jumpsuit", and the newest, "bad guy in a barely believable disguise", would be nice. And perhaps some jury members, or a lawyer for Series 20? That would be nice - we only have a judge and three police officers so far in the CMF line...and they can't exactly go anywhere without a jury and lawyers. Come on, LEGO!
  3. And to get yourself on the platform....Once you did that, if you ever had another good idea then you would already have a following.
  4. Do put it there! It could be pretty popular! I know I would vote for it, sure! Also, perhaps if you were to add a minifigure...
  5. Hey guys! I was able to pick up an ENTIRE CASE of Series 19 for $120! What happened was, my best friend went to our local Walmart and he found that the new Series 19 minifigs had been mis-labeled so they were on sale for $1 apiece!!! And he was like, "WHOA!" So he got the entire box! Then he realized that HE couldn't exactly DO anything with it...so he sold it to me for $120. What do you think? Any similar stories? Our theory was that they had hired a new clerk and he had accidentally mixed up the LEGO Movie 2 minifigs with the new ones, and had put them on sale for that price. They'd had 2 cases, but the first one was gone in a flash. So he got the one remaining one. I have a list of the rarities of each one, if anyone needs them.
  6. Dude, like, submit it to LEGO IDEAS already! I would TOTALLY vote for it! It's SOOO cool! Btw, is it the lighting or is that in dark silver? I couldn't tell if it was dark silver or black.
  7. So right about that! I would rather they had kept the whole old system - even though we wouldn't get extra pieces, it would be worth it. The newer posters are literally onion-skin-paper-thin (ha! it rhymes!) and tear/fade/wash out REALLY easily. (I had one in my wallet when I went into a lake recently, and though an old-style one would have been OK, the newer ones just faded like crazy and tore like mad. Damn.) The plastic packets are helpful for ID-ing them faster - you can get to know who has the inner packaging and who doesn't and it speed the process exponentially. BUT, in view of LEGO's newfangled "environmental awareness" program, I'm surprised that they switched to this newfangled and uses-more-plastic system of packaging! Come on, LEGO! Stick to your commitments.
  8. Saw some photos on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/LEGO-Series-19-Minifigures-Complete-Set-of-16-71025-In-Hand-Ready-To-Ship/133147515543?epid=0&hash=item1f0035da97:g:S4UAAOSwjBRdXHI9 So apparently LEGO is going to continue this new trend of including extra pieces with some minifigures - something that they only recently restarted with The LEGO Movie 2 Series, after dropping it after Series 2. (Waaaaay back in 2010!) The Ghost Knight/Frightening Knight minifigure will have an extra transparent blue sword and transparent blue plume. Monkey King dude is going to have an extra crest piece, an extra red rod and an extra gold lightsaber hilt. Also, what do ya'll think about those clear plastic "inner packets" that they're using for some of the minifigures? I thought LEGO was trying to become more "environmentally friendly", and that is one thing that will now add hundred of pounds more to the Great Atlantic Garbage Patch and our trash dumps.....any thoughts? Did they really have to put them in there? Would it be better if they just removed them?

    Whoops! I'm in the USA so it would be cheaper for me - but I guess that shipping to Europe would be quite overpriced.

    Ideas for new City sets

    Oooh! Totally with lots of re-releases of animals! I would personally like to see an elephant remake to replace the old, expensive one from Adventurers. And perhaps a lion, not just these panther-style big cats they have? Even lion cubs! Awesome!

    Ideas for new City sets

    So true! Personally, I'll root for you all the way to 10,000 votes on LEGO IDEAS! Oh, and beyond. I'll buy several of them if it gets made! No kidding - i need to expand my currently bland CITY collection of 9 vehicles and not a single damn building or paramedic station!

    71044 Disney Train and Station

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/LEGO-Disney-Princess-The-Disney-Castle-71040/352639000357?epid=230328168&hash=item521aec1f25:g:xj0AAOSwJyxcrWKI He's got it for $250! (Built and displayed, but still, if you just want one...) Come on! At least it's a trains set! There hasn't been a good one since the Constitution Train Chase set, which I got for $60 recently. But it's still a cool set, nearly worth the price just to have the Goofy minifig. (Which fans have been requesting for a loooong time now.) Plus, it wasn't MADE to be a companion to existing Train sets - it was made to go with the Disney Castle set! So I see no problem. (But then, I'm not a giant Trains fan, either. So I can see where you're coming from. I build my own train stuff - generally out of the demolished remains of the sets I have.)
  13. Btw, I changed my profile pic to #3 of the top three most-liked minifigure from this series - so far.

    Ideas for new City sets

    Ooooooops...sorry. I'm still new here and all. I won't do to you again. Pinkie promise. I think that an emergency subtheme would be cool! But it's not likely that LEGO would make it - most kids don't have EMS folks visit their schools, only firemen and police officers. LEGO probably knows that, thus we haven't seen more than that ol' hospital set and that ambulance helicopter. A-class bummer!
