    I like LEGO and Zoids. I have an extensive collection of Lego and a growing Zoids collection. I adore MOCing and a variety of "themes" dominate my building, most recently this is Science Fiction MOCs. I like making random figures but no super customs just yet. I have made it my mission to review as many clone brand sets as I can, so people can get an informed view on the competition. My other hobbies include reading shelfloads of SpecFic, writing short stories, drawing, gaining knowledge and seeking out SF artbooks. I am currently studying to be a Civil Engineer and I work full time for local government. That's all I'll write here, you'll get a better idea of me from my posts. :)

  1. Kingdoms & Castles Starter Keep

    This is lovely! A great keep and so well built/planned (I never had the patience for the LDD and LCAD designs) are you sure it is impossible to attain as a real life build? After all, nothing in there looks uncommon and it would make for a great display piece in the ol' man cave....
  2. A pair of darts

    Wow, those have some fantastic lines. Great spaceships even if they won't hit SHIP size. Now... Any plans for Classic Space colours?
  3. How do you use 75937 Parabolic Rings?

    I would suggest working with the physical parts, LDD is never as good as the real thing. Also on the subject of "in system" or "legal" : while some connections might stress parts, you have to keep in mind that other enforced limits are in place as they are too complicated for children or do not withstand the more "robust" play typical of the target market.

    The forum has a standing request for English only, it is the language that all members can understand. Thanks
  5. Assembling Bricksburg

    Hmm. But alright. However, lets keep things off the topic as it is on the list of forum don'ts. Thanks.
  6. Assembling Bricksburg

    Well considering all of those have a much bigger basis in Old Norse and areas of dark forested Germanic pre-christian tradition or Victorian canonised fictions in relation to the winter period. Also plenty adopted from the pagan winter traditions of Celtic and Gaelic areas (There may be a bit of the old Saxon tradition, but most of my reading was more into my Welsh roots and the mythology of Nordic areas. Then onto Germanic traditions due to my interest in the stories the Grimms collected). I do not see why it is any sort of religious bias as there is absolutely no iconography. The fact that the important festivals of other groups are still deeply rooted in religious observance instead of hijacked into commercialised advertising campaigns is probably why it can't be scraped together into a claim that LEGO represents them. The winter village sets, when looked at objectively, are simply a European village in winter, sure one set had overt tones of celebration but the rest are slightly more complex town builds with a white roof for snow and a few cold weather activities. So, please cool you jets and calm down a little.
  7. Compatible Minifigures Discussion.

    Well, two is fine, it means you can build the best figure from what you get. Also, Guy and Power Girl? Cool. Still waiting on a few Golden age characters though (Sandman, Dr. Midnight, Wildcat) and a better Dr. Fate for sure.
  8. Compatible Minifigures Discussion.

    Now those are cool, Going to get Booster and Parallax when they are around. In other news: My TRON style Future Police purchase arrived. As is always the risk... Un-printed face! But, seeing as I bought it for the torso/arm/leg prints and those are wonderfully crisp and detailed it is not too big a deal. In fact, I now have a fleshtone head without a mark, so I can make a Slenderman, which is neat. EDIT: Oh hey, there are Overwatch figures out there too. Aces!
  9. Ever ordered the wrong part from Bricklink?

    I choose the parts I want specifically by tracking them through set inventories. If I have no choice but to buy a part to finish a MOC, I know what I need as I am either lacking the quantity or colour of said parts. So I go through a set inventory to a seller for the part and maybe fill to minimum sale or to make the purchase worth the postage by adding from my wishlists or browsing things I like (Printed tiles, minifigure parts and accessories etc). Of course, I have quite a memory for parts and a 25 year strong collection, so plenty of reference for me to go by.
  10. LEGO Elves 2018

    Ah yes, crystals. I love those as a collection theme, they look so good in treasure troves or as decor.
  11. Compatible Minifigures Discussion.

    I am looking at a store called Dolls Fans Tech Co Ltd, they have capes and other accessories as 20pc choice packs and I am getting increasingly tempted.
  12. The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017)

    Can people avoid being abusive for a start and leave it for Moderators to deal with? Second, @LEGODalekbuster523, everyone appreciates you enjoy Doctor Who rather a lot but maybe a little more reasoning and explanation to the post would make it a contribution instead of something looking a little spammy? -- So, who else ignores critics and heads off to see a film to decide for themselves? I watch a film and if I enjoy it.

    Alrighty then, we're not finished visiting Elvendale! Discuss

    Ah, it is so Beyblade! Also, stealing the Lair, Inferno can set up shop quite happily.
  15. Okay, working on the UK RRP of £649.99 - £84.99 60161 Jungle Exploration Site £64.99 60132 Service Station £34.99 60134 Fun at the Beach £39.99 41187 Rosalyn's Healing Hideout £44.99 70351 Clay's Falcon Fighter £64.99 41317 Sunshine Catamaran £24.99 41311 Heartlake Pizzeria £74.99 70627 Dragon's Forge £159.99 10257 Carousel £34.99 8293 Power Functions Motor Set £19.99 10702 Creative Building Set Leaving 10p at the end. Rosalyn's Healing Hideout and Sunshine Catamaran are the sets my sister would love to have, so I would get those for sure (about £650 to spend , I would certainly get them for her). The Carousel would be for my Mum with the motor set to complement it, so it can run on its own. The rest is mostly for me , but I think the Pizzeria will end up being built by Mum and my brother would want a go at the Dragon's forge. I decided to go with current sets as I am making a wish-list too. Sales and deals in local supermarkets make most of the lower pricepoint sets (Sub £60 sets) potentially a great deal cheaper, so sets that I might not consider paying the £24.99 price would come home with me for the (usual) discounts down to £15 and under. I am making a wishlist to think of using VIP points on, maybe treating myself to or "saving" towards (aka, leave the discounted sets I am not super interested in and put the money aside to get the larger set.). Honestly, this has been an interesting exercise for. It is a rather good thread.
