    Updating Your MCU Minifigures

    The Shang Chi movie was so good that I just had to give the Shang Chi and Xialing figures just a little extra love. Shang Chi - Added the bare arms from Darth Maul torso (973pb1484c01). Not perfect but it’s a decent representation of the detail on his suited-up arms Xialing - Added chef legs with printed hip (970c00pb0673). Just a little extra for her. Also built her a little rope dart. Keeping the faces for now, curious what Shang Chi’s head looks like with the new Wong but I don’t want that set and I’m not convinced it will look that much better anyway.

    I too am interested in any solutions for a Shang Chi figure that better honors the character but not finding much that’s satisfactory in my early searching.

    Shang Chi was a GREAT movie and is one of my favorite Marvel movies. Shame LEGO made sets that are just terrible for my taste. Really holding out for a better Shang Chi figure one day. I can’t wait to see his role in the rest of this Marvel phase.

    Marvel Superheroes 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I was SO pleasantly surprised by EP1 of What If, and recalled there was a “hydra stomper” set revealed. Thought I’d found something else in the Marvel wave to buy! I have no real affinity for NYC, but I would have forked over $25-30 for an olive green Hydra Stomper with “Hello from Brooklyn” stickered onto the fists. But man, that mech looks terrible to me. No sale. Makes me wonder what concept art Lego had to work with, because that Stomper could have been soooo much better looking to this casual fan.

    Would love to see some mods of the Shuttle set to expand the cockpit and hull. I like the set and of course the figs but curious what could be done with it…

    Harry Potter 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    While I have no interest in purchasing this set, it’s really well done and the designers deserve credit for building a very nice looking model. In hindsight it makes sense to make an all-out-designed Hedwig the centerpiece, just an incredible animal model, which alone could draw some folks. Will the Snitch fit the maxifig Harry’s hand? I haven’t counted the studs.

    Great little build! Great details! What a great set overall. It may have been unreasonable to expect some Damascus steel-looking beskar ingots, but dang, I was hoping they’d do it! Maybe one day?

    Very excited for Sam, Tchalla, Spidey, Vision, Wanda, and Loki. Great job LEGO. I realllly wanted to like Sylvie, probably will still pick that one up, but man did they miss her “vibe” in those faces. I’ll try to find an alternate head. It may have been impossible to predict Croki’s popularity but man did LEGO screw up there. In a year of some good wins for LEGO, that and the non-molded Darksaber are their two most annoying misses to me personally. I would love to know, if Vidiyo were never launched, would other themes have had more new mold/print opportunities to work with?

    I re-entered LEGO fandom after the fan vote so this set news was a pleasant surprise a little while ago. While it might not have been realistic to expect a slightly smaller-scale (eg minifig scale) USC Gunship, I was hoping for one that would more reasonably fit in my smaller home and fit minis. Maybe the ship will be close enough to fudge it as some here wonder. I am certainly less likely to buy one this size. Oh well. It is after all a tool for the imagination!

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    A while back I learned that during my LEGO dark period, “the guy who flew the falcon with Lando in EpVI” Ten Numb was released in a set. His minifig came in the mail a while ago and I am so excited!

    Yes! I also wondered about 88295, the two-sided spiky shoulder pad, in sand blue with brown paint on one side, but that seems odd for Lego and would just hide likely torso printing of the straps. Would be quite fun to use the piece you shared in brown too, owing to that raised accessory appearance it would give.

    Trying to envision how the body armor piece that Paz Viszla, Wrecker, and the new trooper in Star Wars have would look on Korg. He does have the shoulder guard on one side and a rocky outcrop on the other shoulder, but I’m not certain the armor piece could recreate that well enough.
