    LEGO + IKEA !

    IKEA needs to make more furniture that is more compatible with displaying LEGO. It seems like IKEA would often discontinue options that customers have been using make their furniture into display solutions. For example, they discontinued the glass doors for the Kallax/Expedit shelves. I think they have discontinue clear glass doors for other cabinet series or now only have the option for non-clear doors. I would like to see smaller or zero frames in their cabinet/bookshelf doors to maximize visibility. The Detolf is commonly used for display, but it can only fit one modular per shelf. I've seen hacks to connect multiple Detolfs together to form a wider cabinet, so I think IKEA should create a modular display system to officially support this. Their Billy bookcases are also commonly used because they are inexpensive and have a windowed door choice with thin frames, but the internal width is frustratingly one stud too narrow to fit three base plates.

    The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part

    Per trailer, they hop. :) You're probably correct. I also think Finn goes into a Dark Age and abandons his bricks. And so a few years later, tons of dust and everything yellow due to sun exposure. Wasteland.

    OHMIGOSH! Did LEGO just introduce MAGICAL GIRLS into their universe?

    The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part

    There better not be anything as tired and cliche as love triangles or wyldstyle getting jealous... And I'm curious how they plan to animate minidolls, since a major issue is that their legs are fused together. I guess they just hop around like gameboard pieces?

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    It's nicely done, but not very realistic. Are there car washes where you have to back out to leave? Should have a rear exit for the car like the Fire Brigade. May work better as a repair shop. It certainly looks modular, where it looks like the top part of an old building is stacked on top of a newer structure.

    LEGO Ninjago 2018

    Going by the 2/fl walkway, does it look like the dock can be connected to either side of ninjago city or could that be for another future expansion set?

    Lego BrickHeadz 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    It's just a baseplate and is less of a issue compared to a change to the scale of the main figure. At least you can easily retrofit earlier models with the new bases. And I see that Funko sets don't have baseplates except for their star wars ones. But with Funko, you can at least still display them unopened and in-box, and that may hide the star wars bases. I think the changing brickheadz baseplate design is just them working out issues with the new theme. Their first bump was Belle's larger baseplate. Hopefully the current design can last longer.

    Lego BrickHeadz 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Do they normally also sell these 'exclusives' at LEGO stores / shop@home? All my closest Barnes and Nobles have closed down.

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Wow, have we seen so many white round 2x2 bricks since classic space?

    Instruction pages to parts list?

    That's a great idea! I haven't used LDD in a while and totally forgot about doing my mods in it first.
  11. Is there a website where you can select a range of pages from a set's instruction book and have it generate you a list of parts, preferably easily importable into bricklink? I know bricklink has inventory lists of most sets, but lets say I only want to part out a subset of the set. For a large set, it's rather tedious and error-prone to go through the instructions and audit the needed parts.

    21314 - LEGO® TRON: Legacy

    In the teaser video, Sam is shown with hair so I hope the set comes with hair as well. In fact, I want all three characters to have both their hair and helmets, but I bet they will cheap out for the 'girl'. Please let tron have his tron face and not an unprinted head.

    21314 - LEGO® TRON: Legacy

    Note that Tron/Rinzler has two disks on his back, but I suspect the bottom disk is just a regular 2x2 round plate. I thought they would use those ring weapons found in the Black Panther sets, but I'm ok if the 2x2 tile is printed nicely. Now, if Quorra had her car, then it'll seem less weird than having her just hanging out on the light cycle grid. Then the set will be similar to this one:

    Lego Pods round plate: is it removable?

    Got it. Just put a 2x2 plate on the edge of the round plate next to the hinge side because that has the most room. Then wedge your thumb into the space next to the 2x2 plate and basically try to get the 2x2 plate off. The round plate should come off with it. Thanks!

    Lego Pods round plate: is it removable?

    Do you suggest I leverage it out from the edge or the center hole? Did you use any tools?
