  1. Well, I finished my build. I don't know what people were complaining about with the female knights. Looks good to me.

    How do you display your castles?

    Brilliant, thanks for the list.

    How do you display your castles?

    I don't recognise a lot of these. Are they personal MoCs or something you bought instructions for off rebrickeable etc.?

    [MOC] Aquasharks - Sea Pincer

    That's from Stunt Show Truck (60294). It's also available in glow-in-the-dark colouring in Ocean Exploration Submarine (60264). https://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=67471pb02&in=S https://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=67471pb01&in=S
  7. Yeah I figured it's not really a faction, just a catch-all category, so not really relevant. But who knows what TLG meant it to be. I went back and checked my own votes, I went for Forestmen - Imperials - Wolfpack. Faction-specific votes.
  8. Interesting reasoning. I think there is elements of what MAB theorises happening. I mean you can hardly blame the team who looked at these results that concluded Lion Knights & Forestmen are the favoured factions, so built the castle to cater to those. Can't really account for strategic voters in a question like that. Would make you wonder if this could have been a Black Falcon castle, only enough strategic voters went elsewhere since we had some Falcon items in production..

  9. I am curious about this. If I recall, the question was just "which three (sub)themes would you most like to see return for the 90th anniversary set?" What strategy is involved apart from the straightforward choosing of the ones you want to see the most?

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    They deliver to Ireland at a flat €13 rate, so it still works out with a small(er) discount. Unfortunately I don't know how it would work delivering to UK in the brexit-verse.

  12. A decent article on the set including some snippets of conversation with designer Milan Madge https://www.theverge.com/2022/6/18/23173256/lego-lion-knights-castle-90th-anniversary-birthday-price-release-date

    10497 Galaxy Explorer 90th anniversary set

    Popping up in review articles, like here for instance: https://www.theverge.com/23173235/lego-galaxy-explorer-90th-anniversary-birthday-price-release-date
  14. I watched the whole video and can't tell if it's satire or not. Complaining that it's an entirely female cast (even the males). Preceding every line with "I've nothing against diversity but.." Please be satire.
  15. Of all the gripes to read this morning, 'too many female minifigs' was not one I was expecting. I can't believe people are complaining about too many minifigs of any type... Swap the heads, ""problem"" solved! Looks great overall - a little bland in places maybe, but easily modded to your own preferences. Can't say I'm a huge fan of that style of roof on the white sections, but better than plain slopes too. That's where my first edits will be targeted. Interesting that the new torso didn't turn up here after all. Despite the "Lion" in the name, for some reason I was expecting this to be Black Falcon faction. Big fan of the Falcon horse barding in particular, here's hoping that turns up on pick-a-brick. All in all, pretty great set, 8/10. Between this and the new coaster, oof, my poor wallet.

    40567 Forest Hideout (GWP)

    Slightly off-topic, but what country are you in? I've been waiting patiently for Black Falcon to return to Irish/EU store for a long time now with no luck.
  17. As always with ebay, 'selling' does not mean the same thing as 'being sold'

    10303 Loop Coaster

    I'm not sure if I'm confused due to your phrasing, but neither this nor the previous coaster came with motors? This image on the box indicates you need to add extras in order to get it motorised. Similar iconography appeared on the Haunted House for example. Maybe this is what you were saying anyway. If so, my bad.

    You might say it's a bit steep.

    Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

    Not Monkie Kid, but a similar thought on the Chinese New Year sets - these are the best sets that Lego currently produces. Spring Lantern Festival is far and away *the* best set Lego have made in years. I love it. But the cynic in me says there's a reason they put their best designers on that line and the prices are so keen for your return. When I saw that I thought, "Dayum, Lego *really* want to get a foothold in the Chinese market. Which brings us to here: As much as I can praise their toy for being timeless and educational. As much as I'd praise their customer service for being above and beyond most companies - it boils down to this quote.
  24. Animaniacs had a recent revival if we're going that route.
  25. That was just the easiest example to pick from many overhyped comments in the thread is all. It's not about ruling out particular numbers, it's about not getting so hyped with expectation for *whatever* feature that you then end up disappointed.
