  1. I realised we don't have a Maid lego minifigure yet, really hoping to get one in CMF 25...

    Are classic themes dead ?

    As somebody who is mostly only interested in parting out sets for pieces and figs while maybe building the set once before doing so I don't mind Star Wars as a theme persé, but I do sigh at the continued re-releases of the umpteenth Falcon or AT-AT etc. Or minifigs that are too recognizable as Star Wars to be used for anything else. A lot of the Rebel figs e.g. are super usefull for Dieselpunk / Trenchpunk / Alternate History moccing, (out of context torso or leg prints) and some of the parts have been great for the World In Darkness group, like the iconic UFA (United Africa) faction, although that's probably not well known here on Eurobricks. I also have to aknowledge that Marvel/Hero sets have introduced some really cool and useful figs, the soldiers from Superman and Turtles are the only modern soldiers lego ever did and the old Superman villains (Zodd and friends) their armor and helmets are still some of my favorite minifig pieces to date. But at least to me there is with both of these themes a huge oversaturation in product that's been going on for ever now and I really did wish we'd see more diverse other stuff. Like the classic themes this thread is about. Edit* but big franchise name themed sets selling better (as well as nostalgia bait) is a fair point, Lego ultimately is about making money and so they'll do whatever earns the most. I fondly remember the latest Adventurers wave and Alpha Team as a kid, for kids of more recent years that's Ninjago I suppose.

    Are classic themes dead ?

    I've heard a lot of talk on views for the Kenobi show, the latest Mandalorian season etc being dissapointing as well as the Star Wars attraction(s?) not performing well in Disneyland (didn't the Star Wars hotel get shut down?). On top of a lot of talk about films/shows being cancelled before being released. Ofcourse as I'm not Disney I don't really know for sure, it's all hearsay. The last Star Wars thing I was personally really into was the old brief Cartoon that the guy who also did Samurai Jack did. Oh man being reminded of that, if they did more seasons of that one as well as Lego sets based on that, now that would be something I'd be down for. Aye, that could be the case. Makes sense.

    Are classic themes dead ?

    With 'Super Hero Fatigue' and a continued disinterest in the Star Wars franchise I wonder how much longer these sets sell and work for Lego. I don't really know people anno 2023 interested in Super Hero stuff at all and I hear left and right people talking about selling their Star Wars (minifigures) collections. If these two giants were to die out I wonder what will take their place... if you look at how poorly these two IP's / themes (not in Lego, idk how well they are still doing for Lego, but in general) have been doing recent times I can't imagine them being evergreen. edit* I do notice Star Wars diorama's / moc's still being a populair presence in events, so maybe Star Wars less so, but I haven't seen a lot of fan related stuff concerning Heroes, I really do wonder about this.

    Some TAN tiles are darker than other?

    When it comes to tan or white (nope not discoloration from the sun, for 100% sure as it's new out of the box parts) I have a ton of subtle colour variation. It's messy.

    Latest impact of other themes on historic themes

    Yes! This was my first thought also, that minifig looks more like a character out of Dark Souls then Star Wars haha, I absolutely love it.

    16x32 MOCs

    I've made my first ever modular building in 16x16 scale, I've seen as small as 10x10 scale still looking good (imo) although realistic interiors are impossible at that scale the facade/outside can look great. Having said that I think your 32 wide by 16 deep idea is very good. I think I'll make an appartment building on that scale as 16x16 will be too small for that.

    Ramen Shop - 16x16 Modular

    Greetings, it's been a while since I last visited Eurobricks. Today I want to present my new project as well as ask for feedback on it. I've always wanted to make my own City/Modular buildings but the 32x32 footprint or price of modular sets has always been too much for me. I discovered de-marco's various modular buildings all taking up no more then a 16x16 footprint some time ago and felt inspired and also realized that 16x16 is a perfectly possible scale to work with. Combine that with a beautiful shelf city lay-out I saw at my cousin's and I decided I wanted to create my own 'Shelf City' with 16x16 scale modular buildings. Themed in a near future / 'almost but not quite' Cyberpunkish setting. This particular building is based of off a french artists drawing I found, this frontside layout is roughly the same as the drawing although I added more details. And will probably be the most traditional/old school looking building in my layout with a currently on the way W.I.P. Office Building and Police Station already being a lot more 'out there' if you will. Also want to shout out The Inventor for being one of my favorite and most inspirational builders at the moment when it comes to (smaller scale) architecture although his work isn't quite as small as mine. Fun fact, this is the first complete building (not just a facade) that I've ever made in Lego. The other side of the Ramen Shop, since my self imposed ruleset is a 16x16 scale modular footprint including overhang I was limited on the back sides by a one stud width. I'm still quite happy with the details I managed to add within my footprint but any feedback or advice is appreciated. I'd very much would like to improve the 'Where Are My Pants' show advertisment board so any tips for that would be great. As the gaps there still do bother me. First floor interior of the Ramen Shop, featuring a seating area, a loading dock with supply boxes, a kitchen with drawers, a cutting area, stove and sink as well as a fridge in the back. Second floor interior of the Ramen Shop, featuring a bathroom, bed and desk with pc. Third floor interior of the Ramen Shop, featuring a terrace as well as an even smaller appartment.
