    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 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.
  8. 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.

    Making Eurobricks More Active

    Okay, supplementary question: What do people want to see on the frontpage? At the moment there is a little news, a little new MOC posting and contests. Do people want to see MOCs that may be a little older posted on the front page? How about drawing attention to popular Discussions? Some sort of "Spotlight on" for subforums or a retrospective on certain themes or topics?

    LEGO Ninjago 2019

    Store exclusives in the UK usually go between certain Supermarkets, Argos and the LEGO Shops. It can be hard to tell what is stock decisions by the Supermarket and what is exclusive. But Tesco most often has actual exclusives and Argos had Elves exclusively this year.

    The Morality of Leaks

    If you dislike the forum so much, you are quite welcome to leave. Or, act constructively and pass on some friendly and helpful suggestions for improvement. As for the topic at hand, Leaks are all well and good and the arguments for and against them can sway back and fourth for eternity. The real risk with leaks is becoming the platform for these leaks. Now that TLG have a lot of products tied up in external IP the owners of those IP have confidentiality demands. House Mouse and the Brothers W will never be happy if their new release film is leaked out through a LEGO product photo escaping into the wild. They will make demands of TLG, and TLG will start to look for the culprit. Enormous targets for the source, like Instagram and Reddit, can absorb legal threats. But fan projects like The Brick Show and here at EB, we can't risk legal action. So, I'm not a fan of leaks. I quite like to see the official images ahead of set release but blurry and incomplete confidential images are undesirable.
  15. They are exactly the same thing as a LEGO one, minus the moulded LEGO on the studs. I started off picking some up for a LEGO Club for kids, realised just how good quality and value they are and got myself some. In the end, they are just a layer to add stability to a build, as I cover them with LEGO plates entirely.

    (WIP) Cyberpunk City MOC

    I have rendered the build: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1OqLfmqkpPVwEuuMpq-T8rZ0tt2ja1Lum Hopefully that makes sense . Baseplates are slightly out-of-system unless you go up from them, but with some SNOT and use of plates, then you can put them wherever you want. Of course, you need a few more around the build to keep it stable.

    [MOC] Star Trek vignette

    Ag, that Enterprise is perfect! Combined with the top-notch "phaser" support beam and the cube... Thanks for sharing this, I think I might have to make a teeny little Enterprise too now.

    (WIP) Cyberpunk City MOC

    I am liking the looks of this! The mixed figures make for a good population that tells you it is a future world. Do you have plans to add lights of any kind to the build? Also, you can connect baseplates to a lower layer of build: Some of these need to be on the top of whatever makes up the bottom layer. Then any regular plate must be on top of it. Some of these need to be on the baseplate, with a plates-width between them and the baseplate (so layer one under it). Put the baseplate over the lower build section and match these SNOT parts to the SNOT on the lower build, then it is a simple case of connecting them to keep them secure. If you want, I can scratch build something on one of the building programmes to show what I mean.

    LEGO Ninjago 2019

    Ok, the little Mech is nice and the Monastery is very good. I think that some of the sets have jumped up to my buy list, well, the list of sets to get when the local supermarkets start making smaller discounts to compete with each other.

    [MOC] Undis

    Use of colour, perfect part usage and a wonderful design. This is beautiful and I have to admit that I do show others some of your work when pointing out to non-AFOLS that LEGO can be an artistic medium. Another stupendous build, thanks for sharing it here.

    Heroica RPG 2.0

    Dieselpunk , Raygun Gothic or Zeerust would be an awesome theme. SF but not hard SF, Science Fantasy over Science Fiction. Something like Mortal Engines or Flash Gordon. So long as there is a chance to build

    LEGO Ninjago 2019

    Um, I caved and went and looked. I like the skeletons, but a lot of the sets are not hitting my list of GET IT, they're certainly on my radar for random discount purchases (Supermarket chains and their unusual price drops FTW). I do like some of the designs though, so it may end up being a case of taking a look at the sets in person and then deciding.

    questions about minifigures

    There are sometimes "Starter Packs" or Starter Sets from City. Coast Guard might still be available and fit what you need. Your next best bet is the less specialised CMF series when they are on the market. There is at least one or two figures that fit a City.

    Eurobricks member Magma has shared this excellent MOC. Come and take a look in Action and Adventure Themes!

    [MOC] Ninjago Shrine Raid

    Thank you for sharing this excellent build! The mixture of plant construction and the landscaping are great. I like the pathway winding up to the shrine and second the kudos on that roof method. Have a feature.
