    So, what are Leaf, IP-2 and Zebra?

    Ah cool! An official answer. Thanks for that! Kind of another way to word what I had guessed. "Nerds" are comfortable with Lego already. People who wouldn't normally buy Lego don't want to see studs.

    I think you're right about the removal. The ice scraper technique might fling tiles off if you're not careful. Still I can't help to suspect a different reason for the studs: Tiles look nicer but are more expensive. Nerds are going to buy Star Wars and Marvel stuff no matter the quality. "Normal" people who don't think of themselves as nerds might buy a Beatles or Warhol set but only if it looks nice. Same reason they put stickers in UCS Star Wars sets but put printed parts in the Saturn V.

    The article linked above say the Beatles and Warhol ones both have alternate builds. No combined build like you said, but I don't see why that matters. Regardless, I guess the studs make it possible to use the brick separator to pull the pieces off? The new wide brick separator makes it look like you can "scrape" 4 or 6 tiles off at a time.

    Trolls World Tour 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    That's what I was leaning towards. I'm glad either way. The large flat panels are especially nice. We don't get those often in cool transparent colors.

    Do we know why some have tiles while others have studs? I'm pretty sure I know the real reason but I was wondering if there was an official reason.

    I'd like to see this creation by our very own @pombe get some support! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/f030c8f2-134a-4306-80bc-25aa9f7040e0
  10. Honestly I think there's no other way. At least you're self aware about it! Did you spam UniKitty or Lego Movie fans? You should...
  11. I absolutely love it! The rear leg design reminds of me something but I can't place it. The missile placement evokes Transformers Ravage but the thruster vents remind me of something else. Zoids Liger? Ok now it's bugging me!
  12. They have actually done countless studies that prove systemic racism in policing and sentencing in the USA. It's very weird to pretend that because not every black person is murdered by cops, there isn't a trend that you can study. It's just like thinking global warming is a hoax because it's cold today. Isn't that what you're doing right now? A bunch of words with no action? It has been a 100% accurate method in my experience. Both on facebook and reddit. I see that phrase, I look at the user's comment history. In 100% of cases I find bigotry and racism.
  13. To be fair, this is exactly how the police treat black people in the USA. I'm all for fighting fire with fire. Whenever we see these displays of police brutality, as a rule, every other cop involves either takes part in the brutality, looks the other way, or actively falsifies police reports to cover it up. This is why they say "All cops are bastards." If there were good cops, they would stop the bad cops. But police forces have a way of weeding out good cops. Ever heard of Serpico? He was a good cop, and his fellow cops tried to have him killed. They made a movie about him. There is almost no left leaning media in the USA. Fox is fascist/alt-right. The other cable networks are corporatist/middle right. Literally every person I've ever heard use that phrase ends up being a white supremacist. This is sadly not an exaggeration. Nobody else uses this phrase. It's merely said to dismiss calls for racism to end. Also to clear things up regarding riots/looting. Almost every riot over the weekend was started by the police, or right-wing agitators posing as antifa. The protests were 99.9% peaceful, at least until the cops started in. The cops literally rammed people with their cars, pushed over an old man with a cane, hit people with their car doors while driving by, shot at people on their front porches for no reason while saying "light them up", flashed white power symbols, and kicked a lady who was sitting down in the face, among other things. You can watch a supercut of all the police violence here: And frankly, if a few broken windows bothers you more than police murdering people, you are part of the problem. Police culture is toxic. People are starting to understand this and call for change. Millions of people don't look at police as heroes anymore, but thugs. This is 100% the fault of police, and police culture.
  14. Maybe it's just a one day thing? Might be a big nothingburger.
