    EB Xmas Raffle 2018 - Your Santa MOC winners thread

    Nice! After a 3 year drought I'm swimming in a C of prizes!
  2. I'm looking closely at the actual figure I have in my hand, and there is no doubt that the print is not properly aligned. The belt buckle print extends all the way to the bottom of the torso and part of the buckle is missing. Along with the huge gap at the top (just compare it to other figures) it's pretty obvious what has happened.

    LEGO Star Wars 2019 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    I think LEGO deserves a bit more credit than that. The designers working on Star Wars sets (or any other theme for that matter) are not out to screw us over, they are working to bring us the best sets they can within the confines of what they can do. They don't always hit a home run in terms of AFOL-approval, but we are a fickle bunch that will never really be satisfied aren't we? I'm sure something like a new Stormtrooper helmet mold originated within the team because they thought they could improve on it, rather than being handed down from above. My personal opinion based on the pictures is that I like the old one better, glad I picked up plenty of the previous Stormie BP's. Haven't opened my X-Wing set yet to check out the new helmet so I'll wait before I pass judgement on that. On a more upbeat note, the Death Star escape set sounds very cool! It is refreshing to get something new from the OT instead of repeats of the same old vehicles.

    My ideal Santa looks like... actually I don't care as long as he brings me LEGO! Thanks for hosting @CopMike, and I hope you fixed that nasty bug in the script that picks the winners - three years running now without a prize!

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Oh come on... seriously? How many stores sold the Diagon Alley set in addition to the one where the first picture came from? Claiming this is the cause they run out of stock prematurely is a huge assumption on your part. Barnes and Noble screwup? Of course you blame that on LEGO too. Not having a backup-plan for if a distributor pulled out? Are you being serious? No business ever has a backup plan for one-off promos.
  6. Look at the picture above showing The Grandmaster & Ian Malcom. The print is too low, leaving a thick black line at the top of the torso, and cutting of the belt print at the bottom.
  7. Thanks for the review! This is a great pack for sure, with four very nice figs. My only complaint is that Bucky's face print seems a bit weird and the fig doesn't quite 'pop' with it's dark torso print (it may be accurate though, just looks a slightly dull to me). Compared to the previous round of Bricktober minifigure packs it's a slam dunk though, guess I'm getting a bit spoiled.
  8. Thanks for the review! I'm not too thrilled with this pack. I really like the Ian Malcom figure (even though I see yours have the same misaligned torso print as mine), but the rest of the pack is not that exciting. Owen and Claire have been in a lot of sets, and even if these prints are new they aren't really adding much except for Owen's expression. Getting a baby dino instead of a figure seems like a cop-out. If only they had gone for a John Hammond fig instead of that dino I would have been over the moon, but alas...

    Thank you for that tip!

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Finally got the HP & Super Heroes Bricktober packs from the local TRU. Not possible to buy directly, so I had to buy stuff I didn't need to get them.
  11. I'd go with Bricks & Pieces on shop.lego.com (not to be confused with Pick-a-brick), and compare those prices to Bricklink (taking into consideration shipping costs for multiple Bricklink orders).
  12. Thanks for the review! I think this is an outstanding set! 4 unique figures not available in current sets is excellent in such a pack! For me this is a 9/10, and this is my favourite among this year's Bricktober sets. I am no hardcore Harry Potter fan, although I think they did a really excellent job on the new sets. I will agree that Nya in the Ninjago set has more "oomph" as you call it than any of the HP figures, but overall the Ninjago figs have limited appeal for me compared to the HP ones.

    Nice! Quite reasonable purchase limit compared to last year. Which TRU was this?

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    So, anyone knows what is up with Bricktober in Norway? Called the local TRU but got the wrong employee so I’m none the wiser.
  15. I must admit I'm really surprised to see this set... I was sure they would never make Vader's Castle, but here it is. I think the set looks pretty decent, but it should have had more new figures. For me the only thing of real interest here is bacta-Vader. But big props to the LEGO designers for pulling this out of the hat, just shows they are not afraid to occasionally venture outside the trodden path.
