    Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

    I'm so on board with this — give me a turn-of-the-millennium Boba Fett fig over anything new, for example.

    [MOC] Honolulu architecture skyline

    I have to admit, I don't know much about the beachfront in Honolulu. But when I saw this on the front page, I thought 'is Diamond Head there?' and indeed it is. You can count me happy. Nice build!
  3. This is an interesting thought — I'd always assumed it was because hairpieces with sharp edges or fine details ran the risk of breaking if made from ABS (for instance the Dr. Inferno hairpiece https://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemInv.asp?M=agt013). Can you speak at all to the practicality of modeling hairpieces with rubber rather than ABS? It seems to me that ABS is just fine for fine detail as far as casting etc. goes.

    MOCpages HAS BEEN DELETED!!!

    While this topic is alive, I'd like to share the sentiments of everyone else that the fall of MOCpages was such a sad and drawn-out process. What a shame to see it go! I spent ever so much time on there when I was ten or so.
  5. Really atmospheric. Looks like it could easily have been a set on the movie. I particularly like how effectively you constructed the cow-elephant thing — gorgeous to look at. Lovely presentation & thanks for sharing.

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    I got the recent AT-AT and the snowtrooper battle pack. Pretty excited.

    Thank you for this information!

    40567 Forest Hideout (GWP)

    What's the significance of the numbered tape on the box? The set that TBB reviewed read "10O2" while mine reads "19O2".
  9. You’re right Bob - there was a time when day threads would be tens of pages long. Now people are less active then perhaps it may be a good choice to let game days last longer to allow people (read: lazy oiks like me) play at a more sedate pace.

    40567 Forest Hideout (GWP)

    I've finally ordered a couple of sets I've had on my mind for six months in order to get the GWP. When I returned to LEGO in around 2005 and learned about all the classic themes etc. Forestmen is one that really stood out to me. I'm glad it's coming back in this little form, and that I can grab a piece of it.
  11. Thank you for hosting Bob, and it's evident that I don't have the same energy to contribute to mafia that I did even a couple of years ago. Sorry @Duvors for my general absence.
  12. What a deranged suggestion (not responding to Dr. Macdougal specifically; more of a rhetorical comment). Why could this possibly be a good idea? and blathering endlessly and making us chase shadows. Vote: Lt. Riley (Rumble Strike)
  13. A more than reasonable surmise but we'll have to see if your case is good enough to sway anyone with results from their power roles.
  14. WTF?? Risky strategy but may be worth it because there are so few of us. Since we are just seven, this process will ultimately not take very long — so naturally there's a limit to the number of investigations can be made. Assuming there is a doctor on board this ship, revealing last night's investigation result would be a good shout. Literally clutching at straws here. Are you begging someone to speak up and say "no, I'm the investigator!" simply to spite you? If we want information we need to have a reasoned argument to ask for it.
  15. Infection! Dear me! With what? Must be a dastardly disease to put all of our species at risk. Let us know as soon as possible! There's so little to go on at the moment... I would be all right with not phasing anyone today.
