    Just a friendly reminder for anyone interested: The series finale of Kill la Kill is tomorrow (or later today, depending on your timezone)! This show has been one of my favorites in recent memory, and I highly recommend it to any and everyone. Hopefully you'll be able to look past (or - I dunno - enjoy?) the excessive fan service and see the heart in this special little show. It's got great characters, amazing action, some pretty funny moments, and a story that is - for lack of a better word - absolutely nuts. Its made by a good number of people who worked on Gurren Lagann, so if you know that show, you should have a pretty good idea of just how crazy Kill la Kill gets.

    2013 Lone Ranger Sets

    I think that it is. The teaser from comic con supposedly showed the duo looking out over a giant rail-yard or something like that. I'm not sure where I heard it, but it seems like the whole plot might be based around that. They did cut a lot of scenes, but I remember them bragging about how they were able to keep all of the train scenes in tact. There was one infamous axed scene dealing with supernatural, glowing werewolves... Ya, go figure.

    2013 Lone Ranger Sets

    I'm pretty excited about this, mainly because most reports I've read about the movie have said that it will, "feature one of the biggest locomotive train setpieces ever to be put on film." Hopefully, that translates into a few LEGO train sets. I honestly wouldn't doubt if that ends up being the 'flagship' set of the wave, actually. Can't wait to see what comes out of this.

    Wow, apparently this is a pony thread now. Gotta say, I got sucked into the show a while back, and it's pretty dang good. Being a person interested in pursuing animation as a career, I first checked it out because I heard that the animation was top notch. I'm amazed that they make it look so good using flash. By the time I had seen the animation, I got involved in the characters and story, and just hung along for the ride. Can't believe that I'm an 18 year old male and I love a show about colorful, friendship ponies. But, I mean, last week's episode when I do make a point to stay away from the super obsessive fan communities though. I don't read fan-fiction. At all. For anything. And after seeing some of the more... questionable... fanart, I really try to stay away from all of that as well. A little off topic, but has anyone seen any good pony mocs? I've seen one pretty good Rainbow Dash sculpture, but that's about it. Any ideas for making minifig scale Mane 6?

    New Lego Store?

    Sorry for the bump, but THIS was just announced today. (LEGO is the last store on the list) So it looks like Nashville is getting a LEGO store, and only twenty minutes away from me, too. Pretty good, considering the second closest one is four hours away . Spring 2012 can't get here fast enough!

    Movies you can't unsee!

    Personally, I agree with you. BUT, not every movie made these days is bad. I would suggest looking here. They may look like kids films, but they are some of the best in the world. They have great character development and interesting plots with overarching themes. If you don't enjoy UP or tear up at the end of Toy Story 3, then you have no soul.
  8. Just saw the new episode, and the wheels are in motion. I believe that this episode marks the beginning of the end for Ashoka. It all starts with her new love interest, the son of whats-her-name who's a friend of Padme. I could see this attraction growing as the series progresses, with maybe a few of those forbidden love/'a jedi can never get married' plot lines, but the interesting part is that he's a separatist. I liked how they showed that the separatist have a valid point for starting the war, and I think that the lines between good and evil are starting to blur within the series. Like Ashoka says, "It's not all black and white anymore." I also thought it was interesting to see Palpy's reaction to hearing about a possibility of a negotiation, and cringed a little bit when he found out who proposed the idea. The rest is just my speculation, but I think that they are laying the seeds for the end of Ashoka. Now that Palpy knows that there is someone in the CIA that wants to end the war, he is going to do whatever it takes to silence them before others follow suit. I believe that he'll probably end up ordering a republic attack on Raxxus (maybe even led by Anakin to sweeten the pot), and have Padme's friend and her son as the target, having them killed in battle/executed by clones or jedi. Of course, Ashoka won't be too happy about this, seeing her new boyfriend killed by the hands of the republic. I think that she would start to question who is really the good guy of the battle, the separatists or the republic. And, of course, this death leads her on her way to betraying Anakin and joining the dark side. She's already starting to go behind his back a little bit more, and pushes the boundaries a little further every time. Of course, this is all just speculation from one episode, but Ashoka is starting to understand the side of the separatists, and question the choices of the republic. So will she trade in her green lightsabers for red? Only time will tell, but I say yes, especially since Dooku will want a new apprentice after Asajj escapes/is killed and Opress is done (I really can't see him staying longer than a one of story arc. I think he'll be gone by the end of this season or beginning of the next.). And that's all I got. Not a bad episode, a little tedious at the beginning, but one that is meant to start off the chain of events.

    2011 NINJAGO sets

    Does anyone know whatever happened to this set? CLICK I haven't seen any pictures or heard about it for a while. I hope that LEGO didn't get rid of it. It was one of my favorites.

    Christmas Trains

    Why don't you just label the instructions as Pere Marquette 1225? But seriously, I really do love that train. It's one of my all time favorites. I've been wanting to make a steam engine myself for a little while, Christmas might be the perfect excuse to do it.

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    Wow, I love that Bounty Hunter ship!!! But the T-6.... why wouldn't lego use one of these for the cockpit? I think it would look much better, and you could take the number of pieces taken out of cockpit construction and put it towards bulking up the wings.

    Double sided face removal

    It doesn't just magically work by itself, you have to do some of the work too! The toothpaste acts as an abrasive, so when you apply it, you need to scrub it with a paper towel or small cloth. After the printing comes off, just run some water over the head and dry it off with a paper towel. If there is still printing on the head, just repeat the process. I used this method to get a "shaved" Indy head, and it works great. They only negative is that it might take a while. Have Fun! Edited for grammar.

    2011 City sets

    I'm excited about the new prison van! I missed out on the last one. Some more police cars never hurt, too. I'm SUPER excited for the space theme. I'm glad that we're finally getting a return to the realistic space theme instead of the sci-fi realm (although I did enjoy the space police sets, too). Oh, and Klaus, did you see anything in any of the sets that looked like this? I've been wanting a minifig scaled moon lander for a while.

    Whoops, didn't see that there were prices! I'm still predicting a remake of this: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?S=7121-1

    LEGO Star Wars 2011 Pictures & Rumors

    For anyone wondering what a T-6 shuttle is: LINK. Considering I'm mainly an OT guy, nothing on this list really excites me that much. Naboo sounds interesting, though. It'll probably be in the swamp setting like the last one, maybe with a tan ATT, Jar Jar, Obi-wan, Qui-gon, and a few droids. And why an imperial V-wing? Oh well, it could be cool. It might tie in with The Force Unleashed II, which I know one member here would be very excited about... *cough*(Darth Sion) *cough* Other than that, meh...
