    2022 Friends Rumours, Leaks, Information And Discussion

    I don't know. Back side to me is just some small open rooms, where you can store the little things you need for playing with the stage. It will be quite a challenge to integrate this building into a city layout. You kind of need to hide the back side and also make sure, that you can still open it up to reveal the wonderful ideas and details of the interior. Don't get me wrong, I am very impressed with this set as a standalone building für play and display!

    My Castle MOC

    Very nice! Constructive feedback? Two things come to mind: More landscape around it. For example there is the bridge, where is the river? And second maybe set the two towers (to me it looks like two main towers) apart a bit more, so that each can stand out more on its own.
  3. I think you have to make a distinction here between being a fan of LEGO bricks or LEGO minifigures and being a fan of LEGO the company. I can be a passionate fan of LEGO bricks but don't care or maybe even dislike the LEGO company, because they don't give me new molds, new minifigs, new sets of the theme I like the most. But Star Wars or Marvel fans get that. Let's compare this to NBA basketball: You can be a fan of the game of basketball. But most likely you will also be a fan of a team. Lucky you if you are from Los Angeles. You even got two teams (=themes) to choose from and you get plenty of games (=sets) and star players (=minifigs) every year to talk about. But if you are from Seattle, your favorite theme gets gets cancelled in 2008 (Supersonics move to Oklahoma). Of course you can still play basketball yourself (=MOCing) and rewatch old matches or talk about TOP 10 players of the 1990. And maybe lose passion for the company NBA in the process. It sucks to live in a small market area (=being a fan of a theme, LEGO thinks is not profitable enough). Being a Clippers or Lakers fan on the other hand offers you a much more comprehensive and exciting fan experience. (Well, maybe the Clippers not so much )

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Actually it's not. Look closely. Both the jacket and the face are a little different. Maybe they are brothers. Or the Beagle Boys.

    Lego City 2022 Rumours, Leaks, Information And Discussion

    Over here in Germany it's an exclusive set. It will probably arrive in a drugstore in a few months, Müller and/or Rossmann.

    Lego City 2022 Rumours, Leaks, Information And Discussion

    What about a brick-built "UCS" goat? ~1000 pieces, complete with plaque ("the GOAT goat" :D ) and of course the one small minifig-scale mould that everyone actually wants.

    No, it's not. The same Minidoll appeared in the 41446 vet clinic.

    This is why Ninjago should end

    Ninjago gave us Ninjago City, Docks and Gardens not to mention the wonderful Airjitzu Temple and several great Destiny's Bounties. Just for that I forgive them every and any shortcomings in other areas. Having said that, I mostly agree with Lego David. The TV show was pretty good up until the "Hunted" season and went downhill from there. No character development, run-of-the-mill bad guys, very predictable story lines. And talking about the Lego sets, I mean just look at the pictures for the upcoming 2022 wave. The biggest bad guy vehicle / structure is a forgettable helicopter. Same with the Legacy sets. Only ninja stuff, the largest bad guy set is a 30$ dragon, that's it. Recently only the Master of the Mountain wave had quite a few and good qualitiy bad guy sets. My son is 10 years old and one of the biggest Ninjago fans in town, but even he seems to be ready to move on. He still needs that Hydro Bounty though...

    [MOC] The Redbeard's house

    Very Impressive! And great pictures, too! Nicely tiled floor in hall and kitchen. Almost too nice and tidy for a pirate's place. But then of course Redbeard is not just an ordinary pirate... I kind of get the impression, that every brick, every single plate, tile or leaf was carefully and deliberately chosen and put in it's place to make this a perfect MOC. Did you micromanage much or does this come naturally to you? Like the rock texture or the wall patterns or how the cave looks inside.

    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.
  14. 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".
