    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    The red infinity stone would be good. Although likely IP locked.

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    I ordered on May 24 and just received email that it shipped today. The total is $7 less than what I had originally been quoted. And 7 items aren’t on the list. I’ll wait until I receive it to see what isn’t on the list since visually I’ll find things quicker than looking at a list of item numbers. But that stinks. Hopefully none of the things I cared most about were taken.

    Notre Dame de Paris Modular building dimension

    This is incredible. That piece count is insane! But it makes sense for the amount of detail. Keep up the good work. This isn't the first impressive thing you've done.

    Black Knight's Castle 6086 Revamp

    This was my favorite set as a kid. I still have it built actually since the early 90s. You captured the shaping well. I do like the new baseplate/greenery. It works here. A bit smooth in places, but that can't be helped. The gray color scheme...that is not for me. I think it would work well for the Dragon knights from Kingdoms, as you are using them. But for BLACK knights, I guess I'm too much of a purist. Why would they be called Black Knights if they don't have any black? That was the main appeal of the original castle, black with light gray trim. It stood out among all of the gray castles that came before it (and after it). But just one man's opinion. I do like the build techniques and the building itself looks great. You captured the updated shape of the original, so I will give kudos to that. The interior looks well done also. I just think it should be black still.

    The Bakery

    Looks great! Definitely would fit well with a series of buildings, but stands out a bit among the modulars. And fyi there is a bakery in the Assembly Square modular set .I I like the color combo a lot. And the rounded tile above arch looks interesting.

    [MOC] LEGO Frame - FRIENDS Central Perk

    That's clever. Really neat stuff. Except, (unless I'm missing them here), where is Rachel?

    [MOC] Endor Motorized

    I haven't watched the video yet, but very clever. Thanks for the underneath picture. I've been wondering how people get away with some of these things. Well done!

    Creator Expert 10270 Modular

    I have a handful of sets still waiting. But then I realize I likely will "never" build it, so then the next question is -- sell on, or part out. Especially when you see the value of something that is beyond what you'd expect. But I don't think I've ever added onto a Modular yet. I tend to design my own, sometimes using designs or pieces from the official sets. But since everyone has the official sets, I figure I'd rather have something unique. So I hadn't bought two of any modular. I'd rather just buy pieces individually since I wouldn't be needing ALL of the pieces to modify the set (but I don't do that so..)

    [MOC] [WIP] Zombillenium - Amusement Park

    I've never heard of this, but this is incredible. Well done! I wish I had something I was that passionate about to live out in LEGO form. It makes the build more satisfactory when you can visualize the things you love.

    [MOC] Big Blocks Fine Autos

    Brilliant. Well done. The car MOCs are really well done (I'm always jealous of car builders since I can do okay, but a lot of those little details get lost). The building itself and lot work really well with the details you've provided. Is the salesman with the tie askew a custom torso/sticker? I don't recall seeing that before.
  11. The data is interesting, but since I'm not a statistician, I am having a hard time understanding the graphs. It shows most are similar enough with a few spikes, but since everything is overlapping and the color coded chart down below isn't 100% easy for me to distinguish, none of this is of value to me, unfortunately. Thanks for the hard work. I think long term this is an interesting endeavor!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I've noticed when I MOC buildings, I've been building closer to 24 wide buildings instead of full 32. But I hate having alleyways in every build I do. I can't ever justify cutting the baseplate to make it smaller. Full 32 wide is definitely harder to come by because of the height. Too tall, it doesn't look right. Too narrow, it doesn't look right. Always find that balance/ratio. The bookshop looks decent for scale, but the townhouse is way too short for how it should look (IMO). But you can't straight double it up to make it look correct either. Who knows.

    Central Perk Big Bang Theory Modular

    I know. I love the show. But it was technically a real elevator, just not working because of the explosion. (I understand limited space in builds. And I like that you tried incorporating it in there.)

    Central Perk Big Bang Theory Modular

    Thanks for the pictures. I'm surprised at how different this ended up from how my own build is coming along. Which is good! Always interesting to see different takes on the similar source material. I am confused on the non working elevator/stairs above it. It looks like the stairs would cut right through it? Odd. But maybe it is the angle I'm looking at it. I love the rooftop though. Well done sir!

    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    Normally I am not that bothered about not having a close store, but seeing these new prints/molds/pieces pains me... I missed out on those shields last summer. Now there are some other really good pieces. All of those halloween pieces would have been useful too. Oh well I guess..
