  3. Hello all, I have come here with deep regret today...I am planning a trip, to drive all of america aver several months, And I realize i will need some dosh, To do this i see no alternative but to sell my life's collection :( , Before i jump in to anything i wanted to share this to see if anyone had ideas about bulk sales/ big buyers or other stuff, So here is my collection, Any advice on sales/value would be great :D DSC00916 by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr ANYONE WANT THE LOT? by Jazz Baker, on Flickr The pictures really dont show the extent of the stuff here, It is almost all complete, and most boxes+instructions are around, Cheers guys, take care
  4. Hey everyone, I feel it is time to attempt to settle the age old debate of "are fake super-heroes worth it?" , To find out i purchased 4 lots of characters ranging from copies of official figures to SDCC fakes and even fakes of customs in order to provide a ranged view into the figures, now after just a mere month they have arrived in a lovely polystyrene box from china. Here is my little box of goodness Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr Each figure comes in a little packet with readily assembled Head, torso and legs, It is your job to add accessories, a stand and hair. Unfortunately there were no instructions so after 16 hours and 195 wrong attempts i assembled my first figure. The figures are more or less the same as lego's with the main difference being the leg assembly Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr The legs will fit into official bodies and vica versa so the unprinted ones i have changed for officials Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr As you can see the connection is the same (i had to do this outside so you could see) Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr And HERE they are! with all those classic accessories such as Mr fantastics chainsaw and the things hammer.... ? Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr To be brutally honest im starting to like these guys.. There is a lot of decent back printing here, they seem to be more generous with printing than Lego themselves. Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr A lot of these guys also have double faces or rear head prints, here are a few random examples. Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr aaaaaaand Kablamo Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr All the parts interact perfectly well with official lego as shown here... Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr Im not sure if you can tell but the arms are a Tiny bit less angled than official arms, Barely noticable though. And of course the other difference that can be seen here is the minor colour differences, I think they all look reasonable enough though. Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr Before i continue i would like to point out the problems i have encountered in these figures 1- Deadpool's head appears to be attatched to his body so will not budge or move, Meaning his sword holster cannot be attached. 2- Some head designs are c**p, I feel this is just due to shoddy workmanship rather than bad printing (namely the FF) 3- Batman's cowel is tight so once it's on don't expect to get it off easily. NOW for a test, Without looking at your official Deadpool figure tell me which is the official one, I will reveal it tomorrow Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr I tried this on one person already.... They got it wrong As this picture shows some are very good copies such as DP and venom, Others, well you can see for yourself... Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr Most however are completely satisfactory and blend into your lego surroundings nicely, Here are some examples. Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr And with minor changes they can look pretty good Decool review by Legocollecter123, on Flickr And now for the conclusion, This could ed the war on fakes forever... let this moment be remembered by AFOLs forever, Now im just dragging this out... PRICE- Ok, so for all 19 of those awesome figures i paid £13.17 including post, Thats under 70p each, Where a normal figure would cost 10x that, Or in a SDCC case 300x that! So i would say these are very good value and provide a reasonable figure for your buck (or pound or yen or euro), so at that price i would grab a few just for the sake of it. 9/10 Quality- Surprisingly these are better than people say, The prints are reasonable, The plastic seems strong and the designs are good, except a couple of slight leg wobbles, Amazingly im going to give these a 6/10 Design, This is difficult seeing as they are all nicked designs, However they have been replicated well (except the FF faces) so i will give this a 7/10 Overall i give these 22/30, These really do fill the hole that lego has dug beneath us so i applaud Decool for there work. The quality is getting quite good now and is constantly improving so these really these will soon be lego standard. If you feel you are missing somthing that these figures provide just get one, Dont look back, its only a few quid after all. One other thing, It is difficult to pass judgment on the figures as a whole, As my GL is great quality, a great figure and looks awesome. However the Decool cap has a poor head design and looks generally bad. Hard to say people... Hard to say... I dont want to say these trump lego as they DO NOT, however they are providing what we want at a price we want so thats good enough for me! If anyone wants extra pics just let me know, Otherwise enjoy your day!

    Ready to sell....Everything

    Have been trying to respond to all who PM me, As of yet the HH, Town hall, Fire station, Mini VW, Hogwarts and Diafon alley have confirmed buyers, However it is difficult to organize as i try to hold sets for those who ask but not all deals work out, For all interested in things a PM is really better than on the forum as it allows all our discussion to be personal and tied up in one place, Other than that lots is still here and all ready :classic: And Borex, can the bull

    Ready to sell....Everything

    Hey all, Thank you everybody for loads of really great advice, I think your right and splitting it up a bit would be a good idea, Preferably i would like to do it in orders of over £100 to begin with, but i will be happy to split things, I might hang on to some newer things until they are more valuable or in case i have a change of heart one day, But really anythings ready to go, I'm in the UK and would be happy to hear what everyone's interested in :) Once again, thanks for everyone's advice, really appreciated

    Marvel Superheroes 2015 Rumors & Discussion

    Not sure about HB but brought the hydra defense on S@H UK by going through the US site, Adding to basket, then returning to the UK, It accepted the order and let me buy it for £49.99, This is an old problem found at S@H and several times i have needed this solution, Makes me think Lego are so rich now they can play us just for the fun of it.
  12. Hello everyone, Not really train related but i felt you guys would be the best to ask this, I purchased a hellicarrier recently and was planninng to power function it, However whenever i plug in the small rectangular box to the m-motor the green light on the box goes out and nothing happens, Is there a fix for this? Cheers :)

    I had some troubles with me little battery, so i did some modding and now i have this monster powering the Hellicarrier. BIG battery hellicarrier by Legocollecter123, on Flickr Big battery hellicarrier by Legocollecter123, on Flickr Big battery hellicarrier by Legocollecter123, on Flickr

    UCS Helicarrier

    Decided to fix in a more unorthadox way, Have threaded the wires to the back of the ship, lobbed a big motor behind and bodged it all together, Now i suppose its the Lego equivalent of a pickup with a turbocharged w16 underneath, It also can now be accessed from behind so no need to remove things to run it.

    Help me train expert people (power motors)

    yup thats the one :) , the green light does light up when nothings on it, but the second i plug in the motor your using in that picture it goes off, The batteries are ok, all giving at lease 1.4 when Ammetered, but still nothing?
  16. The Joker1

    UCS Helicarrier

    could be, I cant get it to work with anything plugged in, is there anything i can do about this?
  17. The Joker1

    UCS Helicarrier

    Just unplugged the motor from the system and tried again, still nothing, the light goes off immediately when the plug is put on, However the big scale larger motor can run it but wont fit

    UCS Helicarrier

    WHAT THE HELL!!!!!! Just purchased all the parts needed for PF ing the set, And not cheaply, The battery box turns on fine but when anythings plugged in to it the lights go off meaning nothing will function!!!!!!!! Any cure to this???
  19. The Joker1

    UCS Helicarrier

    same story, wont be done for a bit and have motors on way, but if nobody does a vid or anything soon i will do one when the time comes that i can
  20. The Joker1

    UCS Helicarrier

    So i ordered myself one of these to act as the light wire and M-motor for the set (that will work right?) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/371260814230?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT , But finding 88000 for a reasonable price is becoming difficult, Any ideas? And once i have one of them thats it right? Sorry for being awkward, I like to consider my knowledge of marvel fairly good but my Power functions knowledge is useless .

    Displaying your superhero town

    Hey guys, Now that we have 3 years and many many waves of superheroes sets available to us i was wondering how people went about displaying them, personally i have separate little zones for Iron man, Bat-vehicles, Justice league characters, GOTG and my Arkham display, But us for all the oddities and randoms that the SH line gives us i have put them all into one big Town display, How do you guys display all the bits and pieces you have?

    Displaying your superhero town

    Nice work mate, thats a sweet looking town, A lot neater than mine , Love the use of custom buildings too, If i got hold of your town it wouldnt stay that neat for long .

    Displaying your superhero town

    Cheers guys, I dont think i would ever trade the heart of my city for anything but SH, but rather work around them , As for taking displays apart, The horror hardest part of the job. I always enjoyed a little chaos in my builds, I feel it gives the hustle an bustle of a real city but seeing some peoples super neat displays sometimes makes me want to change it .

    Anyone else having problems logging into Lego VIP?

    Ditto, exactly the same, Probably just a mini glitch, should be sorted soon.
