    [MOC] Museum of artificial Dinosaurs.

    Ahha! This is most excellent, it reminds me of the exhibition space (I think that is what it was) from the The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec (great film). Thanks for sharing this with us.

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    Yet you are ignoring my advice to keep on topic and go elsewhere to discuss if leaks are okay or not. So, now I have directly asked you personally, maybe you will stick to the topic of LEGO Movie2 Sets.

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    Okay. This is SET DISCUSSION for the LEGO MOVIE 2. Not anything else. So give it a rest. Continue you "debate" in the thread Brick Jagger made.

    Do kids today like Classic Space?

    Okay, to also "rip-off" Star Wars (a bit easy considering the work itself was a trope fest created off of the ancient "Hero's Journey" archetype) can we Stay On Target about this thread? It is not for debating the points of an animated cartoon (I campaigned hard enough for a media forum, go there to hammer it out!) or arguing about what constitutes a rip off. Thank you.

    Budgeting and choosing sets for your collection

    I have three of shopping lists with "budget ideas". List one is Sets I Want, these I'll get at retail price because I really want them. Sometimes it is a designated shopping trip purchase (AKA, go to the LEGO Shop to get). List two is Sets I Like, these are sets I wait for little discounts on (due to local retailers competing with each other) or that I might purchase as a pick-me-up (Certainly healthier than a lot of donuts and chocolate). The third is Cool Sets, these are sets I don't have to have for my collection/parts bank but I like them. There are some cool looking parts or figures, maybe the design intrigues me. If they are really cut price or on a great deal then I might get tempted to buy them. So, not exactly budgeting, but not buying with reckless abandon.

    [MOC] S.S. Venture

    What a fantastic boat! The colour use on the hull makes it look authentic and well used to great adventure. I'm also loving that mast and rigging. Looking forward to seeing their destination

    [MOC] FF7 Chocobo & Cloud Strife

    That is absolutely fab! The sculpting for the Chocobo is excellent and the minifig helmet as Cloud's shoulder armour looks great and is a clever use of parts. Also, I love FFVII so this was brilliant to see. Thanks for sharing this.

    EB Xmas Raffle 2018 - Your Santa MOC entry thread

    You better watch out, Garma-Claus is coming to town!
  10. 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.

    Do kids today like Classic Space?

    What LEGO loving kids I know do like the classic space figures, but they call them "Benny's Friends" and it is more related to the LEGO Movie than admiration for the simplistic designs. Though they all think the logo is really cool.

    Making Eurobricks More Active

    So here is a supplementary question for people: How old/long ago should a MOC be before it is not valid for the front page? Days? Weeks? A month? As everyone mentions, they miss some amazing builds because they are in areas that they do not frequent or they simply don't have the time to browse all the subforum. Something I am guilty of, even when trying to post a comment on three MOCs each day. However I want to share these excellent MOCs. What are your opinions?

    [MOC] Taikoo Ropeway

    Oh my word, this is gorgeous and amazing! The white is so sharp but creates a beautiful effect. The technique for the ropeway is super too. Thank you for sharing this.

    Action and Adventure Themes Discussion

    Class! Being png assets, we can simply resize them and make them into tags. Thanks for that

    Did lego ever have church sets?

    Okay, seeing as this is devolved into a stupid argument, I am going to lock it and keep an eye on certain members to see if their behaviour here is repeated elsewhere.

    Making Eve MOCs

    I'll move this to the SciFi forum

    You know, that one is pretty awesome. I will try and get images I can turn into tag.

    Making Eurobricks More Active

    The problem there is finding people who want to do the work! Being a regulator or moderator takes time, hence the inactivity from some. Then we need to be able to "gel" well and trust the nominee. Once it was a case of finding people who were active in a particular section of the forum and offering them a role. But the reason for this thread, the inactivity, makes it hard.
  22. Oh, I mean, I get the baseplates from wherever, but the other layers that go on top, when I build a landscape or just a street scene; I use LEGO tiles and smaller plates. (Like a 4x4 plate etc) To me, a baseplate is like paper or backing board, something to put or make a creation on.
