    Has anyone's banner or cape orders come in? Were all three packaged together or were they priced per piece?

    Historic Themes PAB Thread

    I asked customer service that question and they said that each listing was the price per piece. However, I've seen comments from other people who reached out to customer service. They said that customer service told them all three pieces would come with their order. So, I guess we won't know until the first orders start shipping, which I hope will be any day now.

    Not sure if you still need the encouragement, but here's why I ended up with one: I only had about $25 in my cart but by adding the cow, I got more bang for my buck instead of paying for the shipping charge. Of course now I realize that I didn't get a brick and tile piece to complete its back! Edit: does anyone find it odd (in a good way) that the new Lion Knights minifg pieces are cheaper than the Black Falcon minifg pieces? Reading more into it than I should ... is this a hint that Lego is producing much more of these than they have for the Black Falcons?

    I'm pleasantly surprised by the barding cost! But the flags are $9 each??? Yikes.
  5. Does anyone know if it's possible to change the positioning of the movable horse in I'd like to have it rearing up, but it doesn't look possible from what I can see. Any help appreciated! edit: I forgot to use a question mark in the title
  6. Unfortunately, no. Yes, I was referring to the poseable horse. Studio refers to it as "movable" but I agree that poseable is a better description. Thank you! I had no idea about the custom parts. I'll look into setting the correct pivot points later, but I was able to add the parts to Studio for now. Relevant helpful links for future folks: Link to all poseable horse parts Adding custom parts to (Windows) One note: one last step after creating the "CustomParts" folder: add a "parts" folder inside the CustomParts folder.
  7. Thank you! Unfortunately, the program doesn't want to treat the horse assembly as individual pieces/parts (at least not that I can see). Is there a way to break it up into the different components?

    The horse barding's going to be something ridiculous like $15, isn't it?

    No shipping notice but my card was charged so should be on its way soon.

    Thanks - I’m waiting on the windmill, so I’ll stay patient but optimistic it’ll ship soon.

    Which sets did you get and can you tell which ones you were charged for?
  12. Thanks all, my hunt continues. I returned to the one Walmart that had them and those are now gone. Here's hoping I see them out in the wild again soon (really want to find a few knights to add to my kid's (okay, okay, mine too) play area). We do have a Lego store relatively nearby but on the other side of town, so it's a bit of a hike to get there. Though if it's one of the stores that identifies the figure, then maybe the drive will be worth it for a few knights and a dragon.
  13. For US users, what stores are you finding the series at? So far I’ve seen them at one Walmart (on a hanging display on a non-LEGO toy aisle), one Kohls (in a box in the LEGO area), and one Barnes and Noble (behind the checkout counter so no bag investigating). Another Walmart has an empty bin with a Series 23 label but no figures. Target didn’t have them a week ago. Should I be looking at other parts of the store(s)? Are there other stores that are known for having the mini figure collections? This is my first time seriously hunting down a collection so I’m new to the game.

    Storage and Sorting LEGO

    I would not recommend using Trofast for "finer" storage. We have one for the kid and it's great for throwing a bunch of pieces and half-builds into bins, but I wouldn't use it for pieces/parts only storage. A couple of reasons: As @Bricky Steamboat mentions, they're fairly big and they don't use space as efficiently as the Sterilite, Iris, etc. type drawer systems. There are major gaps between the top and bottom of each drawer. That's space that could be used for pieces but also lets in a lot of dust (and dog hair...). The rounded corners of the drawers would also be a pain to place organizers without custom 3D printing them. Again, more wasted space from an organization perspective. That said, good luck if you're deadset on using them and report back if you find a good drawer organizer that fits! I'd be interested to see what's available for when/if we transition our Trofast to more precise organization.
  15. I really want to know where to get the scroll shirt that Mark was wearing. I think the build looks good but definitely don’t think of it as a true “set transformation.” I’d have liked to see what could be done with the actual bricks from the Treehouse set.
  16. I'm holding out hope that the Lion Knights show up in a smaller set, similar to how the Black Falcons were used in two sets in the span of roughly 3 months.

    My Classic Pirates collection

    What I find almost even more impressive is how crisp a lot of your sails are. Are they all original or have you bought any replacements knock-off sails?

    Do set prices go up after the fact?

    I'm curious if there's any other discussion on this and if you can point me towards it. My thought process has been that they increased the prices for sets that are not retiring soon. If this has been discussed elsewhere, I'd like to read other people's opinions on it.
  19. I have to agree with this assessment. There have been a lot of recent sets that, even with purchase limits, have been sold out for months. Factoring in the number of people who probably bought the castle for "investment purposes," we still haven't seen the castle reach a backorder status. Raising the limit seems to indicate that Lego is sitting on a lot more stock than they'd like after 2 weeks. If it is having trouble selling, I wonder how much of that is due to the lack of smaller sets (aka theme) accompanying it.

    Counterfeit minifigs (allegedly) on Bricklink?

    My first thought was that they meant the Blue Milk Luke figure, which is identical to sw0778 except for the head print and milk carton.
  21. Here's a question that's hopefully related enough to ask here: I'm approaching the cleaning part of my childhood Lego sort (90s) and I have much more tires than I ever would have thought. Does anyone have any tips on cleaning them? (And they very much need to be cleaned.) I imagine the classic Dawn dish soap method is not the best tactic.
  22. If you're ever inclined, I would be very interested in the extended write-up!
  23. Agreed, that would be nice too. Other than the bricklink castle in the forest, are shield stickers a thing for recent sets? I tend to think/hope everything will be printed, just like the old sets.
  24. One semi-nitpick: I'm surprised the forestmen shield isn't included (or I've just missed it). I'm mainly just surprised that the printed shield was special made for the gift with purchase set. The optimist in me thinks that surely means there will be more forestmen sets later on... Keeping on the topic of shields: the queen's shield is fantastic. I'm really liking the gilded border.

    40567 Forest Hideout (GWP)

    I actually bought an extra treehouse with the intention of doing something similar (along with a Monkie Kid Flower Fruit Mountain), but haven't made the time to crack open the boxes and get started. I may even tear down my existing treehouse set for more parts, but that's harder to justify since it's the one set I've added a light kit to.
