  1. Disney's Future with Lego

    It is indeed a little disappointing that they are Juniors sets since those never have more than 3 minifigs or any good builds, but hopefully the minifigs will at least be good. Like others, I'm just happy we're getting sets at all! I really hope that not all Pixar sets will be Juniors from now on. It goes completely against the idea that Pixar movies are for the whole family, not just little kids. I was OK with Cars 3 being Juniors since the sets were all just simple little cars anyway, but I wouldn't want the same to happen for Toy Story and other great films. While I have to admit that a lot of the Toy Story set designs were a little simplistic, there were some great builds too like the garbage truck. It would be a shame if we had to miss out on such designs.
  2. LEGO Incredibles Video Game

    As much as I would love this, I don't think this game will be a full-fledged videogame. While I do think that there is enough material to make a game out of (there plenty of iconic action scenes in the first movie alone), I don't think it would make sense to develop one just to promote 3 Juniors sets. It will most likely just be a mobile or online game like the Disney Princess one. I'd love to be proven wrong though. And yes, I very much like the idea of a wider Disney/Pixar game encompassing multiple franchises!
  3. Disney's Future with Lego

    I've been clamoring for one for years, so I really hope you're right! There are plenty of characters and scenes they could use for such a game! After Dimensions got announced and didn't have any Disney IPs, I had given up hope, but now that they seem to be abandoning that game as a platform for releasing movie based games and doing normal videogames again, I feel more hopeful. But it's not gonna happen unless they have some TS4 sets to tie in with it, so fingers crossed we get both!
  4. Need advice for Tails's Tornado Biplane

    If you look at the nose on this Ideas project, the tire that was used looks about 5-wide, so perhaps you can borrow that part of the design:
  5. Need advice for Tails's Tornado Biplane

    I'd say start looking at some official bi-plane designs such as 7307, 75901 or 60103, and then maybe look at some bi-plane MOCs others have done, like these. Hope that helps.
  6. Agreed! The pacing had some issues and the show seems to be a bit more concerned with comedy and the family drama than the adventure (the fact that they skipped over an entire action sequence just for comedic effect was a bit jarring and disappointing), but it's definitely a very enjoyable new version of this classic. The fact that they name-dropped Cape Suzette, Spoonerville, and St. Canard within the first 3 mins alone made me happy. It gives me hope that Darkwing will indeed have a cameo at some point. The new personalities of the characters are great as they all have their flaws and strengths. I especially like that they made Donald the everyduck who just tries to provide for his nephews and doesn't like Scrooge just like in the comics. And that cliffhanger at the end was certainly intriguing!
  7. Disney's Future with Lego

    I guess it's not outside the realm of possibility, but that probably wont happen anytime soon as their partnership with Lego seems to be going fairly well at the moment, especially with Star Wars. I'd hope that they are smart enough to realize that even Disney can't really compete with Lego, so it's better for everyone if they keep it the way it is. And even if they do produce their own building toy, it doesn't mean their partnership with Lego has to end. For example, they produce their own Mickey-shaped vinyl figures while still letting Funko make figs based on their characters at the same time.
  8. Disney's Future with Lego

    It's hard to say, but it seems like unless it's a franchise that has proven to be a cash cow like Toy Story, Cars, POTC, and the Disney Princesses, TLG isn't interested in producing any sets for them, so I wouldn't hold my breath for Wreck-it-Ralph 2. Toy Story 4 is a possibility since we've had TS sets before, and with the inclusion of Syndrome and Mr. Incredible in the CMFs, I hope that's a hint that we'll get Incredibles 2 sets as well, although it's less likely. And as long as Disney keeps making POTC sequels, I'm sure we'll keep getting sets based on them.
  9. I posted my Marvel display a few pages ago and here is my DC Super Heroes display which is right below the Marvel shelves. Because that's where Batman likes to be, down in the basement, with the lights out, in the darkness. DC Superheroes Display by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr On the top shelf, the Justice League is fighting the Legion of Doom in front of Jokerland and Arkham Asylum. On the left, Superman and Superboy are taking on Darkseid while Martian Manhunter and Hawkman are rushing to Plastic Man's rescue in the back and Vixen and Red Hood are helping Flash fight Captain Cold. DC Superheroes Display by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr On the right, Wonder Woman is fighting Lex Luthor, Blue Beetle is fighting Katana, Aquaman is fighting Black Manta, the Teen Titans are fighting Slade, Gorilla Grodd, and Captain Boomerang, and Supergirl is fighting Brainiac, Zod and Ares with the help of Green Arrow and the Green Lanterns. Meanwhile, some inmates are escaping from Arkham, Poison Ivy is holding Lightning Lad captive, and Catwoman and Catman are causing trouble for Commissioner Gordon and the Mayor. DC Superheroes Display by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Underneath the streets of Gotham, a slew of Batman's rogues have infiltrated the Batcave and are attacking the Dark Knight and his friends. Bane, TwoFace and his goons are trashing the Batmobile and Batcycle while Nightwing and Batgirl are fighting Killer Croc, Talia and Ra's Al Ghul. Robin wants to help, but Clayface has put him into a sticky situation. DC Superheroes Display by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr On the right, Batman is fighting some C-list villains while Mr. Freeze has Alfred trapped in ice, Penguin is entering through the lake, and Riddler is surveying the battle from a safe distance. Batman's arsenal of useful and not-so-useful Batsuits can be seen in the back. DC Superheroes Display by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr I hope you like it. I can't wait to add all the 2018 heroes and villains to the display!

    Thanks, @Digger of Bricks! Any particular themes you'd like to see?

    You don't know Darkwing Duck, TaleSpin, or Rescue Rangers? You've got some catching up to do! And yes, that's what those are. Speaking of Islanders, these are technically not licensed, but I think you will all enjoy these anyway: Capt. Redbeard and King Kahuka by Okay Yaramanoglu, on Flickr Capt.

  13. Thanks, that helped! It still takes longer than builds without translucent colors, but better than before.
  14. Oky's Brickheadz MOCz

    Thanks everyone! Maybe you're right. I was trying to keep it flat since Brickheadz usually don't have a nose at all, but it did end up looking too flat, especially when compared to Bebop and Rocksteady. Anyway, here's my next batch of 90's cartoon inspired Brickheadz!

  15. I have been having trouble rendering builds that include transparent pieces. The problem is that the renders take super long! I'm talking multiple hours up to multiple days, depending on how many translucent pieces are included. I have a pretty good PC, so the problem isn't the hardware. I use the default settings and only turn off the background and ground plane and use a single-color sky sphere. When I lower the quality to below medium it gets a bit better, but still takes long. Is there any way to optimize the render time for such builds?
