    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I don't have the link, but Jamie explicitly said they will not re-release previous modulars. The reason is two-fold -- a lot of those early pieces may be discontinued with no desire to bring back the mold. Also, to create something new. Yes, they have re-released a few other sets. I'm sure they have their reasons. But if you look back at the 2008 modulars vs 2018 even, they are a world away in differences. I wouldn't even want to buy them now since there is zero detailing. It has grown considerably. We are just lucky enough to be able to compare everything.

    [MOC] I want My chocolate, Leonidas Store and bar

    While I prefer the classic yellow smiley, I feel bad for the one lady working the counter at the store since she is plain and the rest have expression. I can only make assumptions about her personal life and it isn't good. I like the case display and the chocolate/treats designs, as simple as they may be. It really fits with the build. One thing bothers me, the upstairs kitchen floor. The checkerboard works, but since 1x1s have some wiggle room and in this case there is a lot of them, it almost gives me a headache since they are all slightly askew from each other. It makes the floor look like it is moving. Otherwise, nicely done.

    [MOC] Cobalt House

    Nicely done. Another interesting and unique build by you. I do prefer the azure building also, but also because of the shaping. The color pops, which works in this context, but I like the architecture of the building also. I didn't notice the 1x2 plates until it was pointed out. That is clever and really stands out as a different texture to a building. Otherwise a dark blue wall might look boring, but it works here. I will say, you and another person I saw on flickr those many moons ago were the people who inspired me to build Modular style buildings. I need to post more of mine on here. My main computer is a kindle tablet, so I can't do much with it. I need a PC/Mac or something to really get things posted. Either way, they aren't as happening as your builds, that's for sure.

    [MOC] Church Modular

    Overall, it looks like it would fit within a modular street. Typically I don't expect much greenery, so I like that you included that side area. I could picture that, maybe as a corner building and the sidewalk continuing along the fence. Either way, it has some charm to it. I'd like to see it sandwiched between other buildings to get a full feel of things, but that's just me. Keep up the good work.

    [MOC] "Game of Thrones" Westeros Skyline

    Looks great. Very interesting at this scale. I know they aren't the seats of the kingdoms, but I'd add in castle black/the wall, and Pyke for notable locations. But looks great. Kudos

    [MOC] Bilbao Skyline

    Interesting shapes and i can see you pulled it off well, but i don't think i life the source material. I'm not adventurous enough to understand it i guess. But the whole skyline looks great. I do prefer models i can build with real bricks for the challenge. But using non production parts fits help add the realism.

    [REVIEW] 10264 - Corner Garage

    Thanks for the review. Modulars are usually day one purchases. I think I will continue to pass on this. The reviews did bring the set into a better light for me. Some neat features and I like the colors. It’s a good start, but not where I want the finished product. And the price doesn’t help. Especially since it has only slightly more pieces than the Diner but a lot more expensive. Plus I still am sad they switched the heads. I know it is an easy fix, but it was the ONE area where it was consistent. I havent built the diner yet. I am unsure if I will even open it. Another regrettable purchase.

    Thanks for doing this raffle. I always look forward to it. It's fun/neat to see what people come up with. And the wait is exciting and frustrating on the countdown.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Bricked1980 - actually Emmet’s apartment building is a slightly modified Town Hall, so technically they already released it (practically).

    Bricklinking Modular Buildings

    I need to get pictures of mine. I can’t believe I did the sand blue grocer like 4 years ago already... eiher way, I didn’t have any issues either. I ended up not doing a straight swap and like RogerSmith I ended up figuring it out with the right number of bricks, but in new combinations. I also modified mine slightly from straight instructions. It is more symmetrical on mine vs the official set, so that changed the style of bricks needed. good luck with white. Can’t wait to see it.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I assumed it was gwp, but I decided to get it from eBay since there isn’t any other Lego I need or want at the moment. Plus I had eBay bucks so it was mostly free anyway, woo hoo! but I agree. I have a hard time buying Lego at Barnes. Not a great selection usually.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    If B&N started selling them and ran out, they handled that promo very poorly. I was just in there recently and the only promo was the Kessel Run Miner polybag.
  15. Your thought process is yes and no on the right track. You have to make sure you can find the RIGHT set that has pieces you'll need. Just buying gray in bulk sets may not give you the quantities you need. You'll need to bricklink either way, but you may not know what you need until you start building. You also have to consider that not all figures or unwanted pieces will sell quickly or well at all. You may sit on them for a long time, so offsetting the cost isn't always going to work out in your favor. Personally, I source what I can from my collection as is, then move on to just bricklinking what I need in the amounts I need instead of hoping of buying multiples of sets that may only give me a fraction of what I need. Just a thought. Others can weigh in better than I can I'm sure.
