  1. I do really like the ep 1-6 star wars vehicles and ships, their designs are original and lend well to lego, whatever scale they end up being done in. I love all the TIE ships and always have. Love the X-wing lego models, the huge MF (even though I've still yet to build mine!) and the Republic gunships, at-te walkers, at-at... TLG are doing such great things the more time goes on with them! That being said... I have barely any of the classic space ships... I currently still have the large explorien ship pictured a few posts up, have the 2 large spyrian robots and flying saucer, and currently am struggling not to give in and buy a space police 2 mediator. Its only the price for what is 330-odd parts that is getting me, even though its actually rather big (big plates ), it's quite a dated design, which is fair. Unfortunately none of my ice planet, blacktron nor m-tron stuff survived staying with me through my dark years, although I only had the smaller sets from them. Classic space wins it for me hands down. The colours are always so enticing and radiant, even the black and trans luminous green work well, as does the red/black and trans dark blue. I love the mix or trans orange, blue and white for the ice planet. The designs of all their ships were exceptional for their time and soooo different, such imagination went into them. I would just absolutely love to see what they could do now for a big spaceship with all the parts and techniques if they were to make a brand new in-house space theme (bennys ship is great in its own right, and I'm glad I got it, but it pertains to the original classic space ship style. I want to see a clean slate design!) I'd gladly drop £150 on one without thought if the size/piece count were there to back up the price.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Nah. I disagree. Lego are big enough they could easily release an overlap and have no problem selling both. Plenty of children would get a City police station (example) to play with in their 'city', plenty of modular collectors would get a modular police station. Plenty would also upgrade from a city police station to the modular. Plenty would also buy both to incorporate both. Lego have us by the balls, and know they'd have no problem with that kind of overlap.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Doesn't mean there's any less bought. SW has a much larger audience than modulars. System falcon is much more versatile than a city fire station in that its a decent play set that can be played with, and swooshed and displayed, and the fact they literally don't have a break from one iteration to the next clearly shows they're still very popular and widely bought. Modulars are just as much collectable as ucs. And we already know how popular the UCS MF was. The cost for them nowadays, clearly not an issue. The 2 situations are not as different as you make out.

    UCS falcon, system scale falcon out at the same time. No problems there

    TLG acquires Bricklink

    I think this is terrible news. It should have stayed independent. Already they are interfering, making false statements that there is 'no conflict' when there clearly is, sayin g they're not going to implement anything immediately, then immediately having to backtrack when pointed out they won't be allowing things such as Brick arms on there anymore. I'd suspect they truly want to data mine the hell out of it because it gives an insight into what people are *still buying* and *still interested in* while not having to do any market research of their own into what people might want to buy. It'll show them trends, as well as what pieces are highly sought after, enabling them to focus on them being in their own online BaP section... Essentially, it's just one big market research tool for them, with a couple of added extras they can probably use to their advantage of free profit, but also they'll implement their own policies on it as they already have done, removing the independent feel and freedom of it. It'll probably stick around for years, but I really can't see how it'll become better. We may just see a different range of new stuff offered by tlg than we would had they not acquired it...

    LDD will not run anymore

    Just tried it. It is recognising the file having been renamed (comes up with a box stating either the flash installer is out of date or has been renamed), sends me to the flash website to download the most recent one (same one as I put in the file myself which got renamed) then continues with installation. No longer have the 'LDD will not work online' error, but it still freezes on the same loading bar of 'launching application' :( Here is where it freezes:

    LDD will not run anymore

    OK, a slight update. I've a feeling the version from Lego website is still 4.3.10 hence why issues opening it, although it still won't even run offline. I've found another location to download it from, and it states it is 4.3.11. I try installing that and now I am having that flash player issue. The fix for that where it says to rename the exe to zip and then 'open with' google chrome isn't working for me because I can't get the option up to 'open with' to open it in google chrome... Not really sure what to do now :( https://community.adobe.com/t5/Flash-Player/Flash10b-stopping-Lego-Digital-Designer-4-3-11-installer/td-p/10398103 A fix appears to be here, but I can't figure out how to open that '%TEMP%\WZSE0.TMP\' folder...?
  8. Hi, Firstly, I am running Windows 10 on a laptop-specs: In tel Core i5-6300HQ CPU @ 2.30GHz, 8gb RAM, 64bit OS, x64 based processor. Not sure what else info may be required. I have previously been running LDD fine,, albeit in offline mode for quite some time now (only just found out why-4.3.10 is not supported). However, have not used or opened LDD for the past 3 months. I have gone to open it today and for some reason, the 'loading application' page after clicking 'run offline' loading bar goes right to the end, then it ddoesnt progress any further. Then the program becomes unresponsive. I have uninstalled and downloaded the latest version from the Lego website, but it still won't run online nor will it progress past the loading application page. Any help would be masssively appreciated as I can't finish building my haunted house moc :(

    Hidden Side VS Monster Fighters

    Have to say, I fully agree with Oky. Absolutely loved the full on spooky theme of monster fighters, and the variation of monsters etc, supplemented by an absolutely awesome series of cmf minifigs! Hidden side, has a different approach. I do like the ghost side of the minifigs, and the dog too! More ghosts would be cool, I guess more in the likeness of the app versions. I also like the transformation of the buildings/vehicles as though they are possessed, that's a cool feature carried out very well. My favourite is MF for outright going all in. I do however feel they both compliment each other very well too, and as I just realised when I built it last night, the juice bar would make an awesome addition to any lego theme park set up, that becomes possessed at night times!

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10267 - Gingerbread House

    That tile cookie baby brings a whole new literal meaning to the term of pregnancy 'a bun in the oven' Also, I see myself getting 2 of these to make a complete building. I feel it lends itself well to it, and... The more I look at it, the more I really like it even though it doesn't reeeeaaally fit in with existing WV buildings, it's still a nice addition to have off to the side kinda thing.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10267 - Gingerbread House

    While I'd say it's far from bland (can you explain how its bland? It's packed with details, even has a toilet and bath! Not many 'building' sets have a toilet and a bath.) I do agree it's a bit cheeky passing off the tile as a figure... All in all though, a lovely looking set I'll be getting ASAP.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer

    That price... I just can't even... Same as the MF but 2800 pieces LESS?!?! I get that piece count isn't always a good method (one 1x1 plate is not equal to one 12x6 wedge pate), but only a guide... and that weight is another method... but damn... for that price, not even an interior (I'm ok with that as I'd want it for display, but perhaps even just a few more Ties? ), only TWO minifigs that are unique, one having arm printing... well jeese... there are loads of other minifigs in non SW that get arm printing, it's like they use it to suck us in... but not even characters, just generic crew. And totally not anything you'd army build with. I get they're probably just filler minifigs just to give something...but for that price, I'd expect a chromed Darth Vader!! That'd have looked much more UCS suitable with this than 2 generics... The model itself is impressive, I'm glad they did the underside properly too, rather than just flattening it out a'la UCS Executor. The greebles are nicely done, but the rear engine area just looks... odd... The engines look minimal in design as though, 'what's the smallest part count I can make these in?' kinda thing... "Also comes with 2 blaster pistol weapons." Oh hell I missed that selling point, I was going to pass on it... but it has 2 blasters! So that swayed it for me, I just must buy it now! That's kinda embarrassing even mentioning it as a 'feature' to list in this massive UCS set... I'm kinda starting to feel like TLG are becoming scalpers themselves with this specific set because they know people will buy it at a high price regardless.... I'm even struggling to feel justified in using my £150 vip points to reduce the price because I just don't know if it's worth it... It's size is impressive. It's details are nice. The Tantive is a nice, and to be honest expected touch (nice nonetheless). Anything else? Can't come up with anything...
  13. Did it get found out why the leaked sheet of all the minifigs had the amount of minifigs as 16/17/18?

    71044 Disney Train and Station

    I like the looks of it. I don't know much about lego trains, I've only got the recent Harry Potter and winter Village sets... But neither of those came with magnets. I thought lego stopped using magnets because swallowing them could be poisonous or something? (obviously accidental swallowing, not purposely eating them ) It's a shame about the Disney tax, but for what looks to be a decent train set and station, the price is still acceptable, just.. Will this be an exclusive or could it possibly be found on sale on amazon at a later date? Wondering whether its worth using my vip points against this or save them for the next modular/star wars ucs set which I typically never find on sale...
