    Best place to buy MOC trains?

    That is a really nice F.

    LEGO Star Wars 2019 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    Aww, pity. I briefly got excited over the prospect that Abrams might accidentally have done something interesting in the next film. Silly me.

    Is that darkside Luke in the new advent calendar? o.o

    [MOC] Baseplate Alley

    Great technique. Not even remotely a fan of the style here, but that's totally subjective. Love the angled fronts.

    [WIP] Sith Star Destroyer

    Wow, I really like this! And the use of tiles! Yes!

    This garbage truck really needs more support.

    Are there still Mack dumptrucks around, or is that sort of a hybrid? As I said - it came out great.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10267 - Gingerbread House

    I'm going to go ahead and say "whew, thank goodness I don't have to worry about this one." For starters, I think real gingerbread is yucky stuff, so I'm in no way driven to own a Lego version. More importantly, the house itself is hideous - especially that massive fireplace front-and-center. It looks like a throwback McMansion from the early 1990s.

    Uh, well, for starters, I have absolutely no idea how it's made. I never owned technic kits as a kid. Second, I said "if" he ever made a 6w model - not "go make a 6w model for me right now." There's an enormous difference. Prefacing something with "not to be rude" isn't a free pass to turn around and be exactly that.

    Wow, that is glorious. Nice job! Making it a Mack gives it that classic cool. If you ever do the 6w, would you mind sharing the .lxf? I'd like to build it, and - knowing Lego - even if the original design makes it, they'll probably reject it anyway :P.
  10. I know I'm not the only person who likes Lego garbage trucks. These stinky vehicles - which I admittedly do pretty much everything possible to avoid IRL - for some reason really seem to transition well into this medium. And this probably helps explain why Lego has made a habit of releasing them once every 1-2 years (although, unfortunately, 2019's version is a Junior's set that more resembles a dump truck than something working for waste management). However, I'd argue that nothing Lego has ever done has come close to approaching this Lego ideas project: In my part of the world, these side-armed vehicles are now the "standard" garbage truck in residential areas. And, not only does this kid (or, at least, the person doing the narration on the video is a child; I'm pretty convinced the design is by an actual adult) properly nail the proportions of this machine, but the inner workings are bang-on, too. Normally, I try not to worry over Ideas stuff in general, but this submission really deserves to make it to 10k, and - at least by my estimate - it isn't going to get there in the next year unless word spreads. I have absolutely no connection to the truck's creator, but I'd like to own this one, so it would be nice to see people spread the word a little.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer

    I don't get the sense that it was very popular. I think people were hoping for a model of CC with some interior portions. Instead, they got a bunch of scenes smushed into a very crude Cloud City shape.

    ISD Aggressor with Top Hull Mod

    Even though this Star Destroyer design is a bit chunk-I-fied, it remains my favorite.
  13. Yes. I try to pretend the new films don't exist. It's depressing, because I love Star Wars (I even love the prequels), but every time Lego does a line of episode 7-9 stuff, I just breeze on by the toy aisle. :(

    There is a ton of wobble there.

    One that might have been interesting would be a unique Thrawn and Pellaeon combo.
