  1. 2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I'm more excited for the beehive than I have been for any other new piece in quite some time. I really hope it stays around for a long time, and isn't retired once this theme leaves the shelves. I really hope it snugly fits over a minifig head, or a 1x1 round brick.
  2. Review: 30522 Batman in the Phantom Zone

    While I own 0 Batmans, the constant talk of how common they are now and every time a new wave of DC sets comes out has rubbed off on me and makes me sick of that minifigure. The drone is really cool though, I'll look for it.
  3. Help with identifying parts/sets!

    You're welcome.
  4. Help with identifying parts/sets!

    One variation has tubes on the bottom, while the other doesn't. Did you look at both? 8 of the tubeless ones appear in one of the games from 8 years ago.
  5. Help with identifying parts/sets!

    The two light blay slopes are slope, curved 2x4x2/3 and were available in 2 sets. Based on the other Star Wars pieces in the picture, yours are probably from 8019 Republic Attack Shuttle.
  6. Your Lost Lego

    I "lost" the disk that came with one of the Bionicle sets from 2004 or 2005. It seems a little suspicious that one of my friends at the time told me it was missing before I'd realized it myself...
  7. [Review] 10255 Assembly Square

    The "Prevent Yellowing" sign on the dentist's office is one of my favorite Lego graphics. These little in jokes are some of my favorite parts about larger sets.
  8. Lego components made in Austria

    Well it should be pretty obvious why not North Korea... Why Austria specifically probably boils down to money. Austria probably offered the best combination of tax breaks, cheap labor, proximity to main Billund factory, proximity to ray materials, proximity to skilled labor needed to run factory, etc.
  9. Catfight

    But where are the kitties? I like this. The horn and knife are really good for the belts, and the palisade bricks really word for abs.
  10. Does LEGO get you down on your knees?

    I've had to get on my knees to pay for some of my habits, but not Lego. Yet...
  11. New Legoland coming in Upstate New York?

    I don't know by whose standards Orange County is upstate, but okay...
  12. Does LEGO actually destroy their molds or not?

    Molds are big and space is expensive. The book Lego: A Love Story has a conversation in which a Lego executive mentions old molds are destroyed. I think anothergol meant that each part is a file, which Lego wouldn't delete even if they did destroy the physical molds. Also, Lego (and most companies with large production volumes) don't 3D print the final product. They only use that to make prototypes.
  13. PAB Cups: What Did You Get?

    That's the article I remembered reading. I just didn't remember its results, but it's good to know they're the same.
  14. PAB Cups: What Did You Get?

    This past weekend, I had the chance to see Book of Mormon on Broadway (great show, leave the kids at home), and had a few hours of free time. I headed to the Rockefeller Lego store, and it had the sand green pieces that have been making waves here. I noticed a few things: -It seemed like I was the only AFOL there. There were tons of people at the PaB wall, but most were either children or parents, and they were either filling the BaM packets as they were intended, or filling cups loosely with random pieces. -The Statue of Liberty replaced the jet BaM model (a tragic blow, I'm sure). -As well as Statue of Liberty and butterfly parts, notable parts included clear cheese slopes, 2x2x2 slopes in reddish brown, 1x2/1x2 inverted brackets in green, and lime cylinders. I quickly packed 2 small cups, and then spent more time on the large one. I couldn't remember which type was a better deal, so I hedged my bets by getting roughly equal volume of each.
