    Brick-built Animals VS Molded Animals

    i prefer brick-built animals. But I agree that it's quite difficult to get it right with smaller ones. The new Creator wave shows us a good example each of well done and pretty bad: The mice in 31120 and 31121: The castle mouse is really bad. I mean apparently even LEGO felt they needed to put a cheese slope next to it in order to make it recognizable. The snake food on the other hand looks really nice in my opinion.

    [MOC] Apartment building of the future

    Really good! Original Idea, well executed. Piano robot is cute but looks kind of sad. Somehow I was reminded of Hundertwasser architecture. Just that the balconies "need" some trees and the different levels of the building different colors.

    [MOC] Sabre Island Anno Domini 2021

    Beautiful! If I ever get caught, I want to be transferred to this prison cell, please!

    [MOC] Pirate Barque: The Spectre

    Who needs fancy decorations, have you seen all these gold coins in her belly?!? She does stand out, in a good way! Although the forward tipping masts look a little awkward to me.
  5. Best looking for me is the 6754 Family Home. But it has hardly any Interiour stuff. So overall I probably go with 31026 Bike Shop and Cafe.

    Getting into watching Ninjago?

    I would start with the Lego Ninjago movie. It's not canon to the TV show so you don't need any background knowledge. Not a great movie like the Lego Movie but good enough. I do like the tv show a little better though, more character development, interesting villains. If you gave it a try you should start at the beginning I think. The Pilot Episodes where the main characters meet and get trained as ninjas and than fight the Skulkin Army. Only after that start watching season 1 "Rise of the Snakes".

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    Even without much promotion LEGO can hardly keep up with demand of many sets. I believe the Gardens will be on backorder the very first day of its release. So why spend money on promotion? You would just create more unsatisfied customers because of unavailable product.

    Alternative MOC set for 31083 Cruising Adventure!

    Nice one! Constructing a good looking sailboat with any parts you might have is not easy, but doing this as a B-Model -> good job! I felt the same about the official secondary models. I almost did not buy the set because of that.
  9. Talk to customer service on the phone, though you might have to wait for half an hour or something.

    Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

    Careful, this thread is ooooulld, but should not be put to rest yet... My unpopular opinion: I don't care for animal moulds. Especially not the big ones like dragons and dinosaurs. This is Lego after all, not Playmobil or Schleich. Creator 3-in-1 regularly gives us good examples for brick-built animals, even small ones like dogs (31104 or 31097) and birds.

    10278 Police Station

    Maybe the designers of next years Modular will think of something. They put the Book Shop next to the Donut Shop and they will certainly want to have nice pictures for next years Modular together with the Police Station.

    Oversimplification

    Comparing instructions from the early 1990 and 2020 I ... - ... like numbered bags - ... would like something in the middle of 40 steps (1990) and 400 steps (2020), let's say: 150. Of course I could work with less, but my kids now tend to have problems when building the sets from my childhood. And I do remember being frustrated myself sometimes, when in 1990 I missed one piece somewhere and needed quite some time to figure out where and when it happened. - ... don't like having many different colors in the build just for the sake of making the build process easier, even though you might not not see them once the set is finished. I'd rather have more pieces in useful colors for MODs/MOCs. - ... love that they introduced that every step includes this box with what parts and how many you need for this step in the instructions.
  13. Nice work! I especially like how you changed some of the sails. The spanker(?) looks so much better now and the bigger topsail is a very good change, too. Now about those jibs... Maybe you could try an old white plane wing (wedge plate 7x12)?

    [MOC] 21322 + 31109 = ?

    Great idea! Probably something I will try out myself once I get my hands on 21322. Which means I will need a third copy of 31109 because I also want to build something like Wurger49's Ship MOD. Oh man...
  15. Breathtaking! Although this more than impressive creation makes me kind of speechless, it actually pushed me over the edge to finally create an eurobricks account after lurking for many months. Congratulations! I especially like the cave village! Even the ceiling of it contains many details and art instead of just being a boring or technic-looking support structure. There is one minor thing that kind of irritates me: the blue and white color used for the river and water falls. But that's probably just me being used to LEGO using transparent pieces for flowing waters.
