    I am an AFOL who has been playing with legos for over 20 years. In college I started my own collection and having been adding to it ever since. I love Castle and Star Wars themes though will occasionally dabble in Mecha. The MK in my screen name stands for Missionary Kid. A title I am very proud of and one I hope to give my kids soon.

  1. Hmm, thanks for point this out. The sheet just needed to be refreshed. It should be good now. I need to look into how to get it to auto-refresh. As for grid control, it's the first to 100. After that, it's either increments of 50. So the next team to 150 or 200 would be able to re-take or re-assert control. As Thaum said.

    Storage and Sorting LEGO

    I think it depends on what you intend to do with the figs. If you're going to display them then keeping the torso and legs attached is probably best. As you said constant assembly and disassembly could weaken the torso. If you're going to do minifigure customization I'd store them separate. That's what I do. Parts will break every now and then, but I think keeping them stored separate has been best. I'm in France and the best option I've found is Stanley. I buy them off Amazon when there's a good sale.
  3. Or is it possible the leakers got it wrong and R2 KT is the fig instead of Young Leia?
  4. Do you mean the Manta Ray part?
  5. Guessing what sets we'll see next is too close to wish-listing. That's keep that in the appropriate thread please.
  6. Looks a lot like Ferrix! And your lighting looks excellent. And your brickwork is phenomenal.
  7. Episode 5 is live! It's a shorter episode length because the annual May the 4th contest will be starting on... May the 4th. So make sure to get your entries built before the May 27th deadline!
  8. This is an interesting discussion, but it doesn't exactly belong here. Either wrap it up or start a new topic to finish the discussion on UCS sets.
  9. L3-37: Congratulations, you're liberated. Scoot. ... I don't know. Free your brothers or sisters or something. Unbeknownst to her, L3's words would have repercussions 15 years later. Some of the droids inspired by her act in "liberating" them escaped Kessel and have carried on a quite rebellion across the galaxy. Until know their rebellion has been quite, simple acts like poisoning the drinks of their masters or tempering with the repulsers on a speeder. But something has changed and now beings on planets everywhere are facing open rebellion by droids of all types! Dark Side Our facilities on Rasterous have reported droid trouble. We can't afford to have any delays with their shipment of supplies with the Rebels trying to exploit any perceived weakness. Find and deactivate those droids at once! Mercenaries What's that pounding on the door? Oh, it's a droid wanting equal pay or it's weight in gold? Blast it for me will you? Light Side A droid has taken hostages on Thustra? And another has disabled our X-wings on Tierfon? We have enough to worry about with the Empire still trying to destroy us. Quick, send some ships to deal with the problem before it gets out of hand! Your efforts are futile. We will have our revenge on the lifeforms! Contest Specifics: No gimmicks, just double points! Each person can build in each category up to 2 times for a total of 8 entries maximum. Entries will receive a score based on the sector entered for the contest. If you submit an entry for R10 your points will be placed in R10. Cat A: Show what kind of ship the errant droids stole from Kessel. Was it a fighter, a freighter, or something else? Did they land it successfully or did it crash? No need to build an entire ship, you can build a partial one and show it crashed on a planet's surface. Just make sure you pick a planet in the sector you're building in. There's great opportunity for Storytelling points here. Cat B: Show a droid liberating another droid(s). Is it a protocol droid removing the restraining bolt from an R2 unit? Or is in an R5 unit communicating code with a binary lifter? Cat C: Not every droid is convinced that freedom is what it wants. Show what happens when a droid rejects the idea of rebellion. Is it tortured by the other droid(s)? Or does it convince the rebellious droid that it's acts of violence are illogical? Cat D: Repercussions! Show want happens when a droid goes rogue. Is the pool filled with hyperdrive coolant instead of water? Are the pets set free? Is the owner murdered in his sleep? The Rules: All entries must be entered using this form: Link to Submission Form All rules in the Core Rules topic apply unless otherwise stated in this explanation or the rules above. There are no restrictions on the size/form/content of the builds other than the specifics described above. Each person can enter up-to 8 MOCs for this contest, 2 for each category. All entries will earn XP for their team based on their score. Winners will earn additional XP. The Episode will run from Apr 13th to May 27th. As long as it is still May 27th somewhere in the world, you can still enter. Entries posted after the deadline will be disqualified from the episode and will only earn normal XP points. The criteria by which your MOCs will be scored is 1) Storytelling, 2) Aesthetics, and 3) Technical Ability. You can earn up to 10 points in each category for a max total of 30 points per entry. This episode/contest is open to all players of Mysteries, even if they joined EB or signed up for the game after the episode has begun. All entries must be new creations, not posted anywhere else prior to the start date of this episode. You can use creations for this contest in other forums or contests, but it should not have been displayed before the start date for this contest. All entries must be built from real LEGO or with Lego Digital Designer. 3rd party parts may be allowed if used to customize characters and in small quantities. I.E. guns or decals. 3rd party bricks are not allowed to be intentionally used (if you have a Megablock 2x2 brick in a wall of Lego bricks you won't be penalized). You may do a 'full-blown photo edit' with all the text, effects, background compositing, support erasing, and other effects on one picture. All your other pictures may have no editing other than color adjustment or background removal for a solid-color background. For obvious reasons, any photo editing that changes the shape, functionality, or color (not tint or adjustment, but actual color) of a LEGO piece is prohibited,. All entries are considered WIPs (Works In Progress) until the deadline passes. Until the deadline has passed, you are allowed to change and improve your MOC. The Prizes: The team with the most points pre-bonuses will get an extra 10 XP in the sector of their choice. The team with the 2nd most will get an extra 5 XP.
  10. All good, that was the gimmick of this challenge, the random lost-on-the-hyperspace-lane placement of points.
  11. Well you only get to choose where 15 goes, the other 15 from your entry gets placed in Q6. But I'll put 15 in P7
  12. Thank you all for your patience. I've had a lot of Real Life stuff keeping from the game. But Episode 5 is almost ready to launch. And I've got big plans for the game coming this summer. Keeping building, let me know if you have any questions, and invite a friend to play!
  13. After a massive search and rescue operation the missing ships have been found! The Mercenaries with 3 entries, one in each category, have scored 29 points (before bonuses applied). The Light Side with 1 entry in C, have scored 15 points. The Dark Side with 2 entries, both in A, have scored 27 points. The Mercenaries, leaving from Formos in T10, passed through and ended up in Nimia in S9. Their points will be placed in S9. The Light Side, leaving from Phindar in P6, passed through Lucrazec and ended up in Arda in Q6. Their points will be placed in Q6. The Dark Side, leaving from Commenor in N10, passed through Zeltros and ended up in Kashyyyk in P9. Their points will be placed in P9. The Mercs won an extra 25 points to be placed where they want. The Dark Side broke rules and built 2 Cat As, so as a penalty The Light Side gets the extra 15 points and The Dark Side gets an extra 10 points. Let me know where you want those extra points placed. It can be anywhere you currently have access to.
  14. We are really close! We're just waiting on scores from one judge and then I can publish results. Results and the next contest will be out this week.
