  1. Ahhhh. I see. Ok, then I can be mentally prepared of what's going to come in 2019. Thanks for the rumours tidbits.
  2. Guys, are we expecting CMFs Series 19? I tend to avoid too much spoilers whenever possible. I just want to have a rough idea of what to expect next.
  3. Thanks guys for your comments! Great to see your views towards this new series. I didn't watch that movie before but I wanted to make a reference to it. I am concerned no one might really know this movie well, including myself. Thanks Herisanmi. Much appreciated and the reference of Spice Girls. A friend of mine had suggested that it is also a Spice Girls with great relevance. You are the second one to point it out. I like the Pop Band singers to give us much vibrancy and colours. Just to let you know, I had displayed everything including DFB. Please look carefully. The only ones which I didn't place inside, is the Team GB minifigures. That's also the only CMFs which I had never done a review on, due to the fact that I had never acquired a full box. I had a full series in my own collection which I separate from my regular CMFs display. Can't wait for CMFs Series 19. But is this the upcoming for the next CMFs right after this? Holodoc, what is dgb stands for? Tin Man's hand is matt grey. It's different from the torso and legs. You meant hips as legs? Right? The Scarecrow's head is similar to your Voodoo Wooden Jack Sparrow polybag. It is more of a light tan colour tone. I didn't pay attention if there's any bump codes. I also unable to confirm as I do not keep track of them.
  4. I had omitted the beach. So, I had line them up in a straight row.
  5. Check out this lovable "oink oink" of the 40186 Year of the Pig which is reviewed by our Eurobricks Global Moderator and Reviewers Academy Teacher, WhiteFang. Let's usher the festive joy in the upcoming Chinese New Year for 2019 right here in Eurobricks LEGO Special Themes Forum.

  6. I had done my 3 different builds of 4996 Beach House and line them up. This was my favourite Creator set.

    REVIEW: 80102 Dragon Dance

    Interesting question and Jim had given some good insight. My guess is those uncommon parts which are tucked away are not meant to make AFOLs happy. I recall reading or heard from the designer that it was intentional to put distinct colours to illustrate the playing mechanism. It is not part of the exterior or interior playing facade. It is meant to be hidden away as part of the playing mechanism of the set itself. Hence, the designer would use bold colours of their choice to identify the mechanism. I would be wrong, but that's my guess. I am interesting to see what you have done with the Powered-Up system. I was exploring on using my PFs to power it up but I don't know where I had kept them now. Very interesting. Your thoughts are also highly probable based on the situation. We might not never know the actual reason but from a commercial perspective, it is entirely possible.
  9. Thank you guys for your thoughts and comments. Great to hear them here. Even you dislike it. Oh my... We need the traditional CMFs as it had been away for almost 2 years since Series 17. Thanks for sharing. I guess they might want to represent it in a generic manner. Agreed that Unikitty would be better in exchange for another minifig design. On the other point, I don't think TLG would ever cease the idea of placing a 'chase' minifigure. From a marketing standpoint, it might further fuel the hype and anxiety in the market. Great insight. I agree with you wholeheartedly. You have clearly suffered the traditional withdrawal symptoms of CMFs Series 17. On a serious note, I find it quite puzzling that majority of the EB community had quite a high dislike towards this CMFs. I didn't take part in the general discussion and I also avoiding seeing detailed images of this CMFs whenever possible, so I can be "surprised" while I am doing this review. I honestly felt this CMFs is pretty strong in its own way. I had much difficult reviewing experience on even more specialised themes such as Simpsons and DFB for example. So, this in a way is still original and it belongs to LEGO imagination building on its strong foundation of LEGO Movie. On the manufacturing part, I am also curious too. Let's see if any other sites would have posed this question next time. Interesting take on your scoring. It is very nice to read your vantage point. It's fun to read your take on the usage of parts in your own way. Thanks for sharing with us on your perspective.

    REVIEW: 80102 Dragon Dance

    Awesome, Holodoc! I am sure you will enjoy the built as much as I do. I am so happy that you had finally got them.
  11. Fair point. I think you are referring to the integration across LEGO Themes where we can use them in a flexible manner. I am not aware that the worst characters on FB are actually the 4 Pop Singers. That really surprise me. Michelangelo will be awesome to have (wishlist). Thanks Holodoc. Just perhaps, we all might have a different perspective after seeing the movie where we can then associate their existence in this CMFs. Oh gosh. Thankfully you only referred to Batman Series 2. My worst is actually Simpsons 2...
  12. The Scarecrow's hat is not orange colour. It's actually light brown. I just realised the colour went off due to increased brightness. What do you mean by the diploma is incorrect?
  13. Hello everyone, Earlier ago, I had reviewed the new 80101 Chinese New Year's Eve Dinner and 80102 Dragon Dance with my recent local purchase in Singapore. It was also accompanied with in-store promotion where this exclusive set is given away with minimum purchase of SGD$88.00 and above in LEGO Certified Stores and in some other retail channels as well. I reckon this is not as widely available as the previously available of 40235 Year of the Dog. This exclusive giveaway normally happen in the first 2 months of Chinese New Year promotion and it started since 2015 with the 40148 Year of the Sheep. I am not exactly sure of the availability of this particular item, other than hearing the same reports where the Asia Pacific Exclusive for the Chinese New Year sets are resided. Without further ado, let me share my simple perspective of this cute little promotional set. Name: 40186 Year of the Pig Theme: LEGO System / Seasonal / Chinese New Year / Brick Built Animals Year: 2019 Pieces: 152 Minifigs: NA Price: NA Resources: Brickset, BrickLink, Brick Insights An original box image of the 40186 Year of the Pig Back view of the original box image of the 40186 Year of the Pig This is the LEGO Chinese New Year exclusive for 2019 This is the fifth release not counting the 10250 Year of the Snake release. We had seen previous ones for the years featuring Sheep, Monkey, Rooster and Dog. Pig will be the main highlight for the 12 Chinese Zodiacs in 2019. Collecting these promotional sets require incredible amount of patience as you needed at least 12 years to complete the entire cycle. Seeing TLG being committed to make this as a yearly tradition which is welcoming in the region such as China and Asia Pacific. There is also a limited edition "red packet" which is part of the Chinese New Year tradition. Giving red packets is a channel for sending good wishes and luck. The significance of red packets is the red paper, not the money inside. Wrapping money in red packets is hoped to bring more happiness and blessing to the receivers. However, don't you ever open in front of the giver which is an impolite action. I haven't opened the rest of my boxes yet and this will certainly be a nice sight to behold when the eventual 12 Chinese Zodiacs come together. My only grip is the availability of this set and we will probably never know how extensive these will be available now and the future ahead. The content of the sealed box The sealed box come with three un-numbered mint packs. The box contain an instruction manual. After completing the built, these are the remaining spare parts. Building content The completed built of the Pig The completed built of the Pig is lovely and cute. It is posable by able to turn its heads, ears, hands and legs to increase playability instead of having it static. The overall built is well articulated and you can just instantly identified the animal. You can separate the Pig from the garden base easily which you can use it to set in the City display or to include it as a funny icon in the MOC. You can enjoy viewing more of the other angles from the back view and side view. The pig ears are adjustable Nice to meet both of you Let's usher the Year of the Pig with a big bang To conclude, this is a great nice looking display set. I am a fan of Pigs and having this brick built animal in my collection is definitely great to have. The usage of mixel ball joint parts and the rotating disc helped to increased the playability. I am glad to be able to get this promotional set without much problem. Unfortunately, this set had been fully redeemed even though this in-store promotion should run till end of this month. I hope you can access to this set without having to pay an exorbitant price for it. Summary review Playability: 9/10 (Fun to play with especially turning around the head, hands, legs and ears.) Design: 9/10 (Great design and I think the pig is well portrayed in this brick built.) Price: 6/10 (No strong pricing indication, but due to its exclusivity which made me scored lower for its purchase with gift criteria.) Overall: 8/10 (Get this promotional set without break your piggy bank.) I gave it a "5" based on my Review Score Card. What about yours? I hope every one of you enjoyed reading this simple review of mine. Comments and Criticisms are strongly welcomed. Pictures can be found in My Flickr.
  14. Glad you like it, K_Tiger. I think Vest Friend Rex is quite a good minifigure which you ought to consider. The rest of them are pretty much on the remainder. I have added the following new images into the review: Everything is Awesome Different variants of President Business
  15. Thanks Skalldyr. For MOCers like yourself, spare parts are always welcomed. Thanks Makoy. I am sure the pink microphones are the quickest effective cost measure for not printing multiple coloured microphones. Somehow agreed with the puns on the words play. It is pretty original and fun to poke at. The distribution secret is out and we will see how the market forces determine the best outcome. Thanks Nick Wolfe. Agreed that most minifigures are useful steampunk and mad max reference. Those are some great designs which we had not seen in LEGO official sets previously. Of course Wizard of Oz was a splendid surprise and that was a huge draw for me. Unikitty, as I mentioned in the review. It is certainly a wet blanket to me. Other than that, the rest of it rocks.
