  1. Here's the thread for any questions, concerns, comments or discussion on the Action and Adventure Themes Forum itself. Got a review or MOC you want added to the index? Want to ask a question on Past, Present or Future Action and Adventure Themes? Would you like to nominate someone for a tag for a great achievement? Have a query on if your MOC belongs in this subforum? Ask, comment and discuss all that here.

    Action and Adventure Themes Discussion

    It was always Baron Von Baron to me. In my little flight of fancy, I took the Sam from Sam Grant, which was what I knew JT as before I visited Legoland Windsor some years later, to make the name. A Legoland Windsor that has given us an Amelia Thunder in their promotional material... I am a terrible trash person who writes FanFic and I can get behind this in my personal world building. One day I might inflict my Adventure Generations on everyone.

    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    @Aanchir I guess it doesn't go into my specific stop request. However, it is not exactly on topic to 2020 Sets in the City line? Remember, we have a Multi-Quote Tool on EB that allows you to gather quotes and post into a new or pertinent thread. This way you can cherry pick points out of wherever they are and create something to specifically address a point that would otherwise derail a thread. Sure, sometimes a point made is on topic, but furthering the debate on that specific point draws the thread from its intended purpose. I like to see meaningful posts on the forum, it gives me hope that there is still activity here! But keeping things on subject is also important to make threads accessible. By all mean, create lots of new threads to cover different topics!

    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Okay, but that isn't a great thing to do either. I like EB to be a friendly place, so pushing people's buttons for the fun of it is not exactly a friendly thing to do.
  6. It really depends on the theme of the build. You can create great things using SNOT techniques, but some looks are better suited to certain themes or locations. If I was making something SciFi, I would use very different techniques in comparison to building a Castle or even a modern day structure.

    LEGO City 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    To everyone: Leave this argument alone now please. It is pretty much a waste of time. @pooda You hate police sets. We get it. I'm not a fan of some things, so I stay out of it and spend my time productively. Do you maybe want to try that?

    Action and Adventure Themes Discussion

    It's not hard to create a character using this guy. I dig the moustache. Heck, I could characterise this guy as Samuel Thunder, father of Johnny Thunder and former colleague of Dr. Charles Lightning. All it takes is a little imagination.

    Sorted by color finally finished!

    I sort by type, like the others it is according to how I create. Basic parts like bricks/plates/SNOT parts etc are sorted. Then I have "car stuff", "plane stuff" and such. Maybe one day I will have space for type and colour sorting

    Ok, it is not a button I have ever used, so I am not aware of the mailbox it goes to. What was the reason to message the site staff?

    Request for High Contrast Title Bar

    No problems! I have had my theme set to my preference for so long that I had to go searching the page for the menu

    Request for High Contrast Title Bar

    You can select to change the theme right at the bottom of the forum. There is the word Theme and a small arrow. You should be able to change it that way.
  14. Action and Adventure Themes are an odd bunch aren't they? Here is a place to talk about ideas for the future. However there are a few ground rules: This is not a Wishlist thread, so please no posting lists of themes you want LEGO to make. A Compelling Idea is preferred, an outline of a theme idea and story-line (basic or otherwise) will help immensely. Give us a reason to think "That's cool." Continuations, reboots, prequels and re-imaginings of current or past themes are very welcome but not demanded. Remember though: Spies, Submariners and Spelunkers are staples of Action and Adventure themes! Remember: It has to fit into Action and Adventure, too SciFi and it wouldn't fit, too mundane and we're talking town. Licensed characters and properties don't fit (But you can liken an Idea to a known property if you like). This isn't a place to attack current themes or to bang on about their cancellation/ending/replacement. This is just a place to share ideas about the future. Lastly: Have Fun!

    New members barred from tutorials? Anyone with less than ten posts should see/be able to access the forum through that link. Once you make ten posts, the subforum is hidden. @Thai bricks, does this link let you in? Please try it out before you make any more posts! Out of interest, does my signature work correctly? As staff, I can access plenty of parts of the forum that normal users can't. So I can't test it myself without faffing about with spare accounts...

    Is LEGO getting to inaffordable for kids?

    That ain't ever going to happen man. Unless you can get her into Power Rangers or something, 8 Year old girls are 100% a Frozen target and they flock to it like moths to a flame. Otherwise, try a media blackout and keeping her off school On thread: A lot of the high prices are on the licensed themes and everyone wants their share of the profit pie. But LEGO does add more play value than other toys, as you can easily combine it with cheaper sets to expand on a collection.

    MOC: Millennium Seeker

    M-Tron into the new Millennium! Seeking out new sources of ore, the brave crew venture deeper into space. So, house sitting and I found a box of LEGO. I could not resist the urge to build. There looked to be all the parts for the Mega Core Magnetizer, but I wanted to MOC a spaceship instead. I swear the most recent bricks were 20 years old at least. It was amazing fun to work within the confines of a collection that is not mine, made up of parts that at least count as Retro now, none of the handy new elements I am used to MOCing with today. There was a bit of a nostalgic hit too, like building when I was a child without the pretty large and quite extensive collection I have now (with the opportunity to get the parts I really need online or just buy another set...). I hope you enjoy my retro resurrection MOC.
  18. Ok, fine. But you will have to gracefully accept that others will disagree with you, it is not an attack against you or your opinions, just others not agreeing.
  19. @pooda, if you have such a problem with people not celebrating your every word, you are welcome to distance yourself from the discussion. If you start attacking other members in a manner that is personal (AKA, anything that is not related to the actual topic at hand) you will be welcome to have a private chat with staff about what rules you have broken. And yep, this is flack. You are being a whiney brat.

    HELP! ! !

    Well, when I tried to fix it, I broke it worse... I have passed to Admin as they deal with the forum sorftware problems. That is why the two accounts were parted from my efforts at Merging that locked them both up...

    What I can do with 150cm x 50cm area

    Brick or plate built roads look very nice and you can control the size. There are plenty of different kinds people MOC.

    Funny Dreams about Lego

    Mine are mostly mundane: Making a great purchase or some new set/theme becoming available. Only to wake up and realise that it was all in my sleep; I did not purchase a certain set and/or the theme does not exist. There is also the nifty one where ever minifig hair piece is made in every colour LEGO produce with and I have them all (bwahaha), but again, I wake up and realise that this is not a thing.

    [MOC] FOENIX - Energy: Bricks Project

    I think this would better fit in SciFi. I will move it over.

    HELP! ! !

    We are working on it, it looks like my attempt at a fix did not work
