    I like video games. My favorite video game would probably be one of the Rayman games. It's a tie between the second and third. Origins was good too. However, I particularly enjoy Ni No Kuni, which ranks as a favorite.
    Movies are another interest. I enjoy action movies and a mystery every once and a while. The live action Transformers movies are favorites of mine, but my all time fav movie is The Secret of Kells.
    Any other interests? I like Steampunk.
    ... That's pretty much it.

  1. Heh. I'll believe it when I see it. But if it turned out to be true, I'd be more upset that it isn't a new Constraction theme but instead the third iteration of Bionicle. Why can't I have something new? Let Bionicle rest in peace.
  2. Future Constraction Lines

    For System-based, do we even really need super-big sets? I mean, just look at Mixels. Small articulated figures for $5. Maybe make the sets into the $10 range for a bit more detail and articulation. Plus, not only is that cheaper, but the smaller size would provide more room for larger sets/characters/vehicles/etc. Part of the reason why I didn't much care for Bio G2 was the larger size for the Toa. Loved the direction the first few waves of HF took by having all the Heroes as small sets. And, said larger sets in this hypothetical line could have a greater reliance on CCBS or Technic. Best of both worlds. Something else I thought about was a Constraction Minifig. Like the Technic figures from back in the day, but smaller. If Friends can have Minidolls, is it out of the question to see some sort of Constraction-specific Minfig? Maybe something with added articulation?

    Neat. I guess this makes Blue the first non-standard Brickhead, huh? Haven't gotten in to the Brickheadz, but I may pick up the two-pack just because of Blue. He's pretty cool.

    Oh thank god, it's a new print. And it actually looks really good, I gotta say. The set isn't too bad either. Similar to the JW one, but less tank-y and more semi-truck-y. What are the T-Rex's colors, though? Kinda hard to tell. Reddish Brown, Dark Orange, and...? Brick Yellow maybe? Definite buy for me either way.
  5. Jurassic World 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Hopefully the T-Rex is green or some other color. I'd like another T-Rex that isn't the same one from the Jurassic World Transporter/Fallen Kingdom Juniors set. On the new sets: I'm not sold on them yet. The Dilophosaurus looks much better than the JW one, but I don't know if I really need another Dilo. JP set is pretty cool, and I think they did a fairly good job of including so many locations in such a small build. But it is a small build with only one Raptor for $40, and I don't know if I can justify that... It's a good looking Raptor, though.
  6. Future Constraction Lines

    Posting this here since it seems like a more appropriate place than the SW thread. I'll be honest, it's sad to see the wave canned, though I'm not surprised to see it go. But right now, I'm more concerned with Constraction's future which is now... Uncertain, at best. So my mind wandered to what could "save" Constraction from an ultimate demise. And I gotta say, I still believe the Mixels joints are the best bet. While I have no sources to back this up, I feel System's strength is why Constraction is failing. Looking back to the start of Bionicle, wasn't the Lego market weak and/or failing? And with the innovation of Bio and Mindstorms, the brand got its strength back. And over time, System was able to build its strength as well. Either way, nowadays, the general consensus seems that kids are more interested in building with bricks than with bones. That being said, I really think introducing more bricks (if not just having an entire brick-based theme) into Constraction is the way to go. Maybe having smaller, brick-based sets and larger sets that are dominantly Constraction. I really don't want the Constraction community to phase out either. So I'd like to invite everyone to share some opinions, hopes, and dreams here. Let's just keep it civil. ;)
  7. Could it be possible that's a regional thing? I recall the last wave of Chima Ultrabuilds was only released in Europe or some such (either way, they weren't available in the States, iirc). Maybe we're looking at the same thing?
  8. Jurassic World 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Probably be getting all of those except for the Duplo sets (obviously) and Pteranadon Escape since I already have that version of the Dino. I'll get the Chase version since it's green. Also pretty excited about the Juniors set with the green raptor. Really like the Raptor's colors.
  9. Jurassic World 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Bare minimum, Spino would only need two new molds. Three max. Use T-Rex body, legs, and tail and Indominus arms/hands. Then make a new head and sail piece. If you want to be closer to the JW video game, it'd also need a new neck piece (which would probably look better, honestly). Then, if we go by the video game, Baryonyx would be the same, minus the sail. Is there any possibility of a second wave? I don't know how far into the year things have been leaked.
  10. Jurassic World 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Well, they've reused the molds for all the other dinosaurs. It'd be really unfortunate if that was the only one that became unusable. Also, considering the T-Rex and Pterodactyl come in Juniors sets, I figured colors wouldn't be as big of a problem considering the target audience. I doubt younger kids would really care. And honestly, I think it'd make the sets more desirable since it'd provide variants of the mold (except for the folks who didn't get the JW sets, I guess). Doesn't even need to be green per-say. Just something different.
  11. Jurassic World 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    I kinda wish the juniors sets had variants of the dinosaurs included. Like, have the T-Rex and Pterodactyl be the green versions from the 2012 Dino theme. As of now, I'm not sure if I'll get those since I don't know if I really need duplicate dinosaurs. Also still miffed to see there's still no confirmation of any large herbivores. Especially a triceratops since they already have a mold for that... (kicking myself for passing on the 2012 Dino line)
  12. Constraction custom parts

    Dude... What? That's crazy cool. Really neat to see all those pistons in action. It looks like the mask was 3D printed as well. Was that just to keep the colors consistent?
  13. Jurassic World 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    Loved the Jurassic World sets, so I'm pretty stoked for the Fallen Kingdom ones as well. But I'm a little disappointed that there are apparently no herbivores. C'mon, I just want a Triceratops... And an Ankylosaurus. And not sure how I feel about the Indoraptor... Eh. Carnotaurus is cool to see, though. Looks like I'll be buying all these as well like I did for JW.
  14. Future Constraction Lines

    Yes! All the yes! Hopefully it'll only be a matter of time before Lego makes these. Honestly, that's kinda why I'd want a system-based constraction theme. The Mixel joints are a godsend for brick built mechs, and with a full theme, it'd really give Lego an opportunity to extrapolate on it.
  15. Haven't bought any SW Constraction sets outside of Kylo and Grievous, but I'd totally be down for a Droideka.
