  1. Depends on your definition of "UCS"....

    Bricklink crowd project castle

    I pre-ordered two Löwenstein Castles with the plan to make the "expanded" full version with the extra parts required. Despite not being based on an actual castle, it still looks great and worth the purchase for me.
  3. The new Tantive IV is alright, but not great enough for me to run out on May the Fourth and pay full price. It's just too bad TLG didn't go a little further and make it UCS...less a system-scale play-set. Perhaps the result of a "focus-group" recommendation....in order to maximize profit. Is the UCS line dead? Maybe they had originally planned to make this a UCS set but decided against it due to cost? Or they just needed "something" for 4 May? Given that it isn't labeled UCS, it would have been nice for them to make this part of the 20th Anniversary line and included a very special anniversary minifig like the others. Nevertheless, I will buy this set. I've sold off a significant chunk of my SW collection (including many UCS sets) and only keeping the ones I favor most and now very picky about what sets I buy.

    REVIEW: 75181 UCS Y-Wing Starfighter

    Great review! What is the actual calculated scale of this set? How close is it to the scale of the UCS X-Wing and UCS TIE?

    I both love it and hate it. Need some time for this to absorb.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    So, for the eagle-eyes out there, does this Diagon Alley micro appear to be the same scale as Hogwarts micro?

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    A reveal or significant leak should be out very very soon as we are almost into September. Lego really needs to knock it out of the park this year for the WV theme. The last three years has seen the re-release of the Toy Shop, the introduction of an overly junior-ized train, and a complimentry train station who's best feature was the taxi/bus. IMO, a re-release of the Cottage is actually fine in my books, as it's the best set in the series and could bring in some more buyers to the theme (more sales = more attention from Lego). However, as a collector re-releases hurt my collection. Before the Taj re-release, anyone who saw my collection was blown away by the fact I had one. Nowadays not so much...takes away from some of the fun. Notably for me, there's a seller in my local area that has a sealed Cottage for sale at a fair price (about double original price). I'm ready to buy...or not buy...as soon as solid information about the WV 2019 set is available.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    It's only a matter of time before an updated Diagon Alley comes out. I'm actually hoping for a summer 2019 release; give the fans the opportunity to get the current sets available. IMO, too much all at once might actually be a bad thing.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'm sure there's a talented MOC'er out there will make an "expansion" set of instructions using parts from existing Lego sets such as Tower Bridge, Big Ben, or even another HC. It's only a matter of time!

    My store's pre-order list of 60 will be filled tomorrow and they say they have extras on hand. This is wayyyy more than the half-dozen UCS MFs they had. Looks like Lego is better prepared this time.

    Starting to look like Hogwarts Castle is another Lego Shop at Home release fail? Or are they waiting for a midnight EST worldwide go-live?

    IMO it's a great set; first time I built it was with a friend...I did one half and he did the other. Good times!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Based on Brickset data, the set owned by most users is Pet Shop (likely due to its long shelf-life), followed by Palace Cinema, then Parisian Restaurant. https://brickset.com/sets/theme-Advanced-Models/subtheme-Modular-Buildings
