    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    That's your problem...having a budget
  2. that is incredible! I immediately said to myself that is a lot of SNOT! And you did a great job calculating everything. That is always a good feeling when it all comes together like that. I can't wrap my head around it. Kudos!

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    While we constantly want new stuff, obviously since they will always do a soft reboot (like star wars) if this is around long enough, new kids will always get interested. Which means, we will ALWAYS have stuff with movies 1 and 2. They will never go away. Those are the most iconic for kids since it isn't as dark as the later stuff. And the interview mentioned the transition to sand green wasn't just for the anniversary? But if the new soft reboot is going to have modular builds and be different from the last 2018-20 series, wouldn't the 2022-23 sets also be sand green to match??

    [MOC] Galaxy Explorer SDR-926

    Classic space was before my time. I grew up with Blacktron II and M:Tron and the like. This ship is quite impressive though. Tons of details. The size is ginormous. Well done!

    MOC: Bank

    Always impressive. The color scheme works well. I love the green accents. The shaping and size is apparant. The clock works really well. The interior is clever (and that sign). Another knock out. Good job.

    [Moc] The last Kingdom of falcons

    Look great! The colors work better than expected. My only qualm is scaling. The Blacksmith house being as big as an entire castle... But I get it. It's LEGO and scaling is always weird anyway even in official sets. But seeing that does make me think as as stand alone set, the Blacksmith works well. But integrated into a layout it needs to be much smaller. I do like the towers on the castle. I think that is clever shaping. And the amount of texture on the side works too. That's always my struggle. How much texture is too much before it looks busy, vs looking too bare.

    [REVIEW] 76388 Hogsmeade Village Visit

    Thanks for the review. The set look great. While I agree, stickers on the windows is no good, I don't think it will keep me from getting the set. I wonder why they didn't print it though considering they printed the same style of window in Diagon Alley. Maybe printing on the rounded piece is just as difficult as applying a sticker! One smack my head part was when you were showing the figures and talked about Harry spying on them in the room, I thought Mr. Flume was Fudge...haha. The older face made me think it. I was thinking I don't recall Fudge being so colorful with his fashion choices when I watched the movie. Maybe my HP knowledge is suffering also! haha

    [REVIEW] 76389 Hogwarts Chamber of Secrets

    Thanks for the review. It looks neat overall. I will prefer 2018-2020 versions, like so many others, but this seems to work okay. I like the idea of using it as a generic classroom or something else (if you wanted to connect them). The figures look great. I will definitely like picking them up, and the new creatures too. I think the Slytherin head in the Chamber looks good, but I'd want a larger scale version to truly appreciate the Chamber. I will get it, but I'm torn if I'll consider building it vs parting it out. I've been wanting to do a larger scale Hogwarts, but I feel so many probably do it, it won't be unique anymore.

    [REVIEW] 76386 Hogwarts: Polyjuice Potion Mistake

    Looks great. Thanks for the review. I do like getting some new characters (even if they are really the trio in disguise). I agree getting some variety in robes would be nice. I'm not sure how they choose what to put where. I'm guessing by repeating the torso x2 saved them money? The bathroom area looks pretty solid. And the toilets fit well for how they were in the LEGO video game.

    Swamp's tower

    Amazing! The drawbridge is really clever! The colors work really well together. I really like the window trim with the curve macaroni tile and the rounded section right before the roof/gable area. Well done, I'll definitely look back at this for inspiration. I really need to start building castle stuff again (I've been too hung up on Modular building lately).

    [REVIEW] 41693 - Surfer Beachfront

    Interesting set. Is that light aqua on the building? And I thought the watermelon head was decent. I ordered a handful because you never know when you'll need a watermelon head. That car is ugly. But I guess it works. The ice cream cone is clever and looks better than how they used to make them.

    [REVIEW] 76387 Hogwarts: Fluffy Encounter

    Thanks for the review. I'd pass on the set otherwise (even though HP is my favorite theme). I don't need the figures. But I'll end up buying it anyway so I can keep my collection complete. It has potential, but as a stand alone set, nah. Combined with other sets or part of a MOC, I could see it being useful.

    ^And that one day was my day off so I wasn't around a computer at all...what are the odds?? Eventually I will own a tan horse.

    FRIENDS 2021 - Rumours & Discussion

    In universe, the apartments are above the cafe. But the exterior shots of the apartment building makes it a corner building and in no way would ever be able to accommodate the shape of the front of Central Perk. If you google it, you can see the real building they used for external shots in New York. It looks cool. I tried making my own version to also accommodate the shape of Central Perk. I was not as pleased as I could have been.

    Maybe it has been there for a long time, but I have never seen it before (and I look multiple times a week on the site). But looking at BnP now, even the location of the search box is smaller and lower than it was the last time I logged in. So I'm on team new feature.
