  1. Also, the eyes can be seen inside a helmet and have different expressions, so it adds that extra dimension of play to a figure. There can be storytelling reasons, or for the more generic characters, the one printed side is one character, while the other print is another. Like with the mummy figures in Pharaoh's Quest: These heads then supplied all the Mummy mooks and allowed some variety.

    [FIGS] Vintage Droid CMFs

    Oh excellent! UFO was the first space theme I had a few sets from, those guys featured a lot in my childhood building. Gives me a few ideas of my own...

    I always loved playing with my androids from the little space LEGO I had. These are great figures, mixing old and new does create something fun. I would love to see your spin on the UFO guys too. Thanks for sharing.

    Scripts and specials are TV focused. So I think the focused chatter belongs elsewhere.

    Sets not TV thanks! We are once again spilling into only what the TV guys are saying.

    This is discussion for future themes, not past ones and your perception of their success. Please refrain from this sort of extended arguing off topic. Thank you.

    Action Theme Forum and You!

    So I am working on a MOC index, but there are a few things I am doing with it that might cause questions: 1 - Adventure MOCs are in a separate thread to the Adventure Reviews. - There are a lot of Adventure MOCs, not only for Johnny Thunder and Jake Raines, but also plenty of Monster Fighter MOCs and some Dinosaurs. So these are now in their own thread that I am working on, who knows, maybe there will be a lot of Aquazone MOCs and Spy MOCs to mean each will need their own index thread apart from the reviews. Then again, when I finish working out the Adventure MOCs and how to make it work, they might just go back into the Adventure Index. This all a WIP for me. 2 - No Pics! I am not creating thumbnails for the index for two reasons. The main one is to reduce server load on the forum, as I would need to internally host MOC thumbnails, not too much of an issue for a few banner images and tags, but hundreds of MOCs not so much (That being the main reason we request external hosting of your photos). Secondly it means you will go and look at a MOC if the title interests you, not what a tiny thumbnail suggests. I do not want to hurt feelings by leaving out bad photos etc so just the MOC Title will have to do. Of course, the Adventures MOCs are so far divided by subject (Vehicle, Air and Sea Craft, Scenes - Ruins - Structures, Layouts) so you have some idea what you are going to look at. Any opinions on this?
  8. I have had a go at exporting and fixing things to how I like them and it has been a very useful tool. What alterations I have done to the data are basics like spacing and a little bit of a text change (Eurobricks becomes Review as I am following our indexing style etc). I can't suggest anything that needs changing, as everything is pretty fab as is. I am not sure if anyone else has been working to update their theme indexes, but I am sure they'll have feedback when they do.

    An Interesting Find

    Yeah, WHSmith has had stock that sits for a long time, I was able to pick up a LEGO Movie ice cream van set, plenty of mixels and nearly the whole Cars 2 medium set range. Our local branch has a Clearance outlet, so all the branches in the distribution area send along the excess/outdated stock. At the moment there are plenty of the books with a minifigure. It does mean you can get old sets at retail, it is always a temptation.
  10. Many thanks again, this has been a great help indeed.

    Arrowsmith springs to mind here. (and I just went through a stack of fifteen year old comics to confirm the name.) It had a really cool look and I want to build some things that match. I really do want to get my dieselpunk on.

    Best place for selling Lego?

    I also heard that you can sell things well across local sales sites like Gumtree.

    Guys, you need to try and keep too much focus off the TV stuff, some people get grumpy about it.

    Do people want indexed MOCs? I have noticed that it can create clutter from users posting comments on very old threads. Also, as mentioned before, a lot of the MOCs on the forum are dead pictures which makes a list that is incomplete to me...
  15. Cute builds, great perspective on the photo for the monastery and a gag is always a good 'un. Thanks for sharing it here on EB. I do love to see adventurer builds
