  1. Has anyone come up with a physical way to allow for stickers to be applied in the same position for multiple pieces? For example, if I'm applying stickers to multiple 2x2 plates, I would want the stick on each to look like they are in the same position. I don't think just eye-balling it will work. Back to the multiple tiles example, I built a lego frame that rests over the bottom edge of a row of plates and tried to use that as a guide for the sticker, like a ruler, so that at least one side of the sticker is in the same position across all plates. But the problem is that there is always a gap between the tile and the frame so the sticker can sometimes slide into the gap during application. I guess I could replace the lego frame with a strip of tape to eliminate the gap, but now I have to worry about aligning a very long strip of tape. They should print sticker sheets with a border around each sticker where the border matches the exact size of the target piece, if possible. There is a cut around the border itself, so the border is essentially a sticker frame around the center sticker. Then to apply the sticker, we just lift up one side of the border sticker and center sticker, align the border to one edge of the piece, which automatically aligns the center sticker, and then only press down upon the center sticker onto the piece. The border stick then can be discarded. Yes, the five sticker sheets from the xtras set is giving me anxiety.
  2. Some modular buildings (and related sets) are designed for vehicles to drive into, through, or around. Has anyone tried swapping out the normal baseplate with a road one so the road on the set is on the same level as the the roads around the building? Fire Brigade: use straight street plate? Corner Garage: use curve street plate? Ghostbusters HQ: use straight street plate?

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10267 - Gingerbread House

    Challenge would be to add a back to the house, probably with a mirror copy of the set.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Have you considered using Lego Ideas sets for the interiors? I've seen someone fit the contents of the Big Bang Theory set into one of the upper floors of the Cafe Corner. And I'm thinking the upcoming Friends set (the tv show, not the theme) may work for the first floor. Maybe the Research Institute can fit into the remaining floor. Here is one example. If I try this, I'll see if I can line the floor with wood panels.

    LEGO 2019 Stranger Things Rumours Discussion

    Has anyone removed the ball-socket parts and joined the two halves back to back to form a complete house? Trying to imagine what it would look like within a town/city layout.
  6. Just got the Benny and Sweet Mayhem brickheadz delivered from Target. They have the same Limited Edition stickers as the more expensive Walmart sets.
  7. Just got Benny and Sweet Mayhem delivered from Target. They both come with the same Limited Edition sticker as the Walmart sets, but of course $5 cheaper. Walmart sucks.
  8. Didn't watch the movie yet but was the Wizard of Oz even in the movie. If not, then they use any unrelated license to fill up a CMF series 2.
  9. Interestingly enough, Target is selling them at the regular $9.99 price.

    REVIEW: 80102 Dragon Dance

    Seems like this has room to support eight dragon handlers, but perhaps that many bodies would draw focus away from the dragon itself. I think would prefer the motion to be smooth and would make a better impression to others.

    REVIEW: 80101 Chinese New Year's Eve Dinner

    It seems that if I really want this, I have to order from a bricklink seller from an asian country. Anyone have a suggestion on which country offers reasonable shipping to the US?

    REVIEW: 80101 Chinese New Year's Eve Dinner

    The designer for the Dragon Dance are at least Nick Vas (@princegalidor) and Niek van Slagmaat (@toothdominoes), so perhaps they were also involved with this one.

    Chinese New Year’s sets -2019

    Are these exclusives to Lego stores or will other retailers be able to sell them?
  14. Oh man, I've been waiting for them to drop more Wizard of Oz figures since the first year of Lego Dimensions! Finally! Anyone see the giraffe and think it's in honor of Toys R Us? Someone mentioned the girl band being called the holograms. Is that just a joke or is it really true? Now I can finally have a battle of the bands with Josie and the Pussycats (from series 14) and Jem and the Holograms!
  15. Emmet just murdered the queen, turned her into an art project for his girlfriend, and is hiding his insanity behind the standard always-smiling minifigure face.
