    To be fair, as a father, anything with minifigures is a playset to a child, be it a complex Lego set or a household object than can make-believe into something else ☺

    Your four year old has a much higher dexterity stat than I do, things keep falling off when I just move those sets, let alone play with them :)

    LEGO IDEAS - The Medieval Blacksmith

    I've not yet had a missing piece in almost 35 years now.

    My bad, that's exactly what it was. This has never happened to me before, but I've been ill lately and the amount of silly things I've done/said in this state has now reached a number where I think it's best I just keep quiet :)

    LEGO IDEAS - The Medieval Blacksmith

    Yes, those are the ones. Should I contact Lego about missing parts? haha I'm more bothered by that first floor wooden beam siting on top of the bottom floor 1x1 tile top beam and they never match up well, so the beam looks broken, but not in a good way. Or is that a post since it's vertical? No idea.

    I don't have it, looks rough. On one side only? After some googling I was supposed to get 2x utensil ingot/bar and I got two plain tiles in the same color instead.

    The two final bricks in the manual of my set were replaced by similar looking bricks in the bag. Anyone else had this?

    A ginormous castle would probably be too much, but maybe a series of modulars like what they did with the Harry Potter sets, only aimed more at afols.

    I agree with that, but I can't consider any "here's a copy of something well known in Lego" particularly creative, unless it had a serious twist to it.

    That's like saying that a cover band is one of the most creative bands.

    The Blacksmith is an amazing set and the designers really outdid themselves on this one. Pictures just don't do it justice. I'd kill to have Lego make something like the recently rejected castle in the forest idea, but on a 3x blacksmith brick count at a ninjago modular price... well, one can dream.

    Modding the Barracuda thread

    That's a lovely looking ship! Now someone needs to do a more tasteful rendition of 31109 :)

    I like the Van Gogh, and a lot of if not most art is well suitable for Lego renditions. However, just like with the globe, Lego only picks the most boring *** predictable projects and back in the day I kinda hoped for the opposite... Lego is already known for being boring *** and predictable (a consequence of which is the whole Bionicle fandom) so having the public steer them in a different direction was just the thing they needed, or at least so I thought.
  15. I mean... for me it only makes sense to look at broad categories first and then vote on a subcategory. In that case Space-y and Castle-y themes win hands down. And only then the rest follow, among which Bionicle got arouund 8% more votes than Pirates+Imperials, despite PI votes being split first amongst each other and then more among other categories compared to Bionicle fans and newly made accounts voting Bionicle only.
