  1. I really want Lego VR to become a thing

    I absolutely agree! As you said, this would be the closest we will ever get to fulfilling our dream of building with an endless supply of bricks and a great use of VR! I have an HTC Vive and have been looking for such a game, but sadly I haven't found one. The closest thing we have right now is Minecraft for VR/AR and similar apps such as 3D Sunshine, but nothing actually resembling Lego bricks. I have actually been tinkering with Unity and learning how to use it to develop VR games, and if I ever become comfortable enough with it to create my own game, this will be one of the first projects I will attempt to do. However, I still have a lot to learn before I get there, so don't expect anything from me anytime soon. Hopefully TLG will soon finally adopt this technology and make an official app themselves, even though most of their target demographic probably doesn't have a VR headset. Something as simple as adding a VR mode for LEGO Worlds would be a great start!
  2. LEGO BrickHeadz Wishlist and Ideas

    Velma shouldn't be too hard to make yourself with the parts from that Go Brick Me set. As for Voltron, I like the idea. Something like this:
  3. UCS Unikitty (MOC)

    It's everyone's favorite unicorn-kitten princess, Unikitty! The breakout star from The LEGO Movie recently got her own cartoon show and I decided to make a giant sculpture of her. This is a 8:1 scale replica of the bipolar ruler of Cloud Cuckoo Land. The tail was the most difficult part to recreate and I'm not completely happy with it, but overall I think it turned out pretty good. You can turn her head, roll her eyes, pose her eye brows, and spin her horn. But best of all, the back of her head can be opened up to reveal a playset inside. This playset is a representation of Unikitty's mind. As we all know, her mind is all sunshine and rainbows, but she keeps her anger locked up deep inside a corner of her mind. When she gets angry, her angry self breaks out of its cage and unleashes her fury! I tried to build it out of existing parts so that I could potentially build it IRL if I felt like it. This is why I had to make the neck in lime green instead of cool green. I think the only part I used that doesn't exist in these colors is the light royal blue 1x1 cone at the top of the horn. So it is possible to build it for the most part, but I think it will be too much trouble tracking down all the parts in the correct colors. This was going to be an Ideas project, but sadly it was rejected due to it being based on a current IP. Thanks for looking, and remember: Stay positive!
  4. Thanks! Yeah, I wish I had the Helicarrier so that I could include those microfigs. Oh well.
  5. Hi everyone! This is a microscale recreation of the Marvel Super Heroes set 76051 Super Hero Airport Battle for the 60th Anniversary of the LEGO Brick contest on Brickset. Here is a pic of the original set for comparison. I tried to include as many details as I could. And here's a back view of the build: I hope you like it.
  6. Greetings, adventurers! This is my entry for the 60th Anniversary of the Brick contest on Brickset, a microscale version of the classic Adventurers set 5988 The Temple of Anubis. Here is a picture of the original set for comparison: Here is a closer look at some of the more detailed parts of the set such as one of the Anubis statues, the truck, and the hot air balloon. I hope you like it and keep on adventuring!
  7. I just thought of two more shows. After Tartakovsky was able to give Samurai Jack the ending that it deserved, I would love to see Adult Swim give him the opportunity to finish Symbionic Titan as well. Also, Celebrity Deathmatch. I loved that show as a kid and there are certainly a few celebrities these days that I'd love to see beat the clay out of each other. There were talks of bringing it back a few years ago, but sadly it didn't happen. One can always hope though. If it was so great, why do you want it rebooted?
  8. Star Wars

    Well, that Solo trailer was about as underwhelming as expected. The only things I liked are Glover as Lando and that shot of the ISD in the cloud, but that's about it. What's up with all the random tentacle monsters in Star Wars lately? Was that one of the purrgil from Star Wars Rebels? This might just be the first Star Wars movie I won't see in theaters. On a brighter note, I finally got to experience Secrets of the Empire for my birthday yesterday and it was AWESOME! It's fairly short (it's 30 mins, but half of that time is spent briefing you on the mission, putting on the gear, etc.) and once the secret is revealed, it is not really explained what the significance of it is, but the level of immersion was amazing and it's just super fun to become rebels in stormtrooper armor and blast stormtroopers with your own squad like a real life SW Battlefront! If you ever get a chance to try it, I highly recommend you do! This! Seriously though, don't pirate movies (or Lego), kids. Thank you for giving your detailed thoughts on TLJ. I much prefer a lengthy analysis over the "SHUT UP YOU WHINY LITTLE FANBOYS!! THE MOVIE IS AMAZING!!!!" type of comments that I usually see. That said, I will have to respectfully disagree. I get what the movie was going for, I just think it was executed poorly. It seems like it was so focused on being subversive that it forgot to tell a cohesive and satisfying story.

    All the cartoon lovers are over in this thread: There is also this thread for Disney/Pixar movies specifically:
  10. Overwatch, Who's your favorite Heroe?

    I like Mercy a lot too, even though the recently added revival time does get frustrating sometimes. I like her pacifist attitude and German voice lines since I grew up in Germany myself. I'm also quite liking Moira since she can fight better than Mercy. She's surprisingly effective in deathmatches. On defense, I usually go with Bastion or Torb. Pretty cheap characters, I know, but they're just so much fun! Orisa is pretty good too on certain maps. For CTF, I always go with Symetra. Looking forward to the Lunar New Year event! By the way, if you haven't already, you need to watch Overwatch House!
  11. Star Wars

    Is it though? If their stories are going to be as uninspired as this trilogy, I have no interest in another EU surge. Personally, I have no problem with the good vs. bad stories. It's kinda what makes Star Wars what it is and part of its charm is that feeling of being a classic fairytale set in space with wizards and sword fights and princesses and good and evil. It's how you execute them that counts. The PT certainly had its shortcomings, but its story was not one of them. While it had similar themes as the OT, it wasn't a straight-up copy of it like TFA and TLJ were. There are many examples in Legends that show how it could have been done better. People usually point to the Thrawn trilogy as the prime example of how a sequel trilogy should have been handled and I very much agree. It had the same heroes, same factions, same kind of good vs. bad story, but the world around them had changed and the main villain was so different from the ones that had come before that it felt new while still feeling like Star Wars. Plus it introduced other new characters that were actually interesting and endearing like Mara Jade. Basically, what I'm saying is that the good vs. evil stories are fine as long as they don't follow any of the previous movies in the saga beat for beat. That's like saying what's the point in watching Titanic if you already know the ship is going to sink. Much like life itself, movies are about the journey, not the destination. The PT was about showing how exactly the galaxy got to such a dark place by the events of ANH and how someone destined for greatness can turn into one of the most evil beings in the galaxy. I think it's a bit more complex than a simple reversal of outcomes, but even if you look at it that way, it's still much better than the exact same outcomes which is what the sequel trilogy has been giving us so far. As for Rogue One... yeah, that movie was pretty pointless. I think the idea was to give extra weight to Leia's mission to deliver the plans to the Alliance in ANH by showing the sacrifices the rebels had to make to get them, but it wasn't really needed.
  12. That's a shame as both TMNT reboot series that have been made were excellent and Transformers Prime was great as well. I forgot to mention Invader Zim. I know there's supposed to be a movie coming out, but I'd like the series to return as well.
  13. That show was good, but personally, I think aside from that cliffhanger it was fine the way it ended. The main story was wrapped up, so I don't think it needs a comeback. In fact, I'd say that, while an inferior show, Sonic Underground is more in need of a conclusion as the main arc there never got finished. That is not to say I wouldn't want to see more of 1993 Sonic, but yeah, not gonna happen. By the way, I also really wish CN would let Tom Warburton do his KND sequel, Galactic Kids Next Door!
  14. I watch a lot of cartoons, so the shows that I'd like to see return are mostly animated shows which got canceled prematurely and should be continued so that they can get the proper ending they deserve. These include Spectacular Spider-Man, Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Tron Uprising, Thundercats (the 2011 reboot), Teen Titans (CN needs to redeem this franchise after utterly ruining it with TTG), and Futurama. The latter already returned from cancellation once, so I don't see why it couldn't do it again. Sure, Futurama isn't really a story-driven show and is probably fine the way it ended, but I just can't get enough of it. Also, I grew up with the Disney Afternoon shows and Disney XD has done a pretty good job with the DuckTales reboot, so I wouldn't mind seeing modern incarnations of the other shows as well, like Darkwing Duck, Rescue Rangers, and TaleSpin, so that today's generation of kids can enjoy these shows too. Fortunately we already got a conclusion to Samurai Jack and it seems that Young Justice and Animaniacs will be returning soon as well, so thankfully I don't need to include those on this list.
  15. Star Wars

    Well, so much for that rumor. But it will be released soon according to a recent tweet from Ron Howard which started the rumor. Yeah, all this talk about "killing the past" and all those dumb plot twists trying to break free of the mold, and yet all these movies still stick so close to the story of the OT that it seems pretty hypocritical. Let's hope the new trilogy will be a lot more original, although after how Rian handled this movie I don't have much faith. Personally, I'm actually OK with an Obi-Wan movie as I wouldn't mind seeing more of Evan McGregor playing this character, although I'm probably biased since he's my favorite character. So true.
