  1. I would love to see such rare and amazing LEGO artefacts!  

    As for selling, you could look into auction houses that deal with toy sales. There are a number of them now, as Star Wars, Transformers and other toys have become valuable and desirable collector items.

    Unfortunately, I only really know of the UK based auction houses. I am not sure what there would be in Sweden, but Google for "auctions of vintage toys" or "specialist toy auctions" might help.

    Have a nice day!

    You too :classic:


  2. There is also the chance of going the Power Rangers/Voltron/Digimon route and come up with a new team. There are a lot of options open to take then; Next Generation, New Spinjitsu Students, a rag tag group of different personalities stumbling across the power of spinjitsu... So many tropes and all of them fun to work with. Heck, there is always the "Alternate Reality" or "Alternate Timeline" options that can use the same character names but in a different situation.

     


  3. As I look at my Library, made up of many (many) books I have found that 20 of them are LEGO books, official and fan driven. 

    I know for a fact, that there is now a new edition of The LEGO Book, but I already have the first two editions. I have Great Lego Sets and a number of the Minifigure guides. 

    So, would anyone who has the latest edition of The LEGO Book be able to say if it is essential? 

    Are there any books you highly recommend I get? (Or check if I do have. I know my book catalogue app has some entries missing, I have more than 666 books listed in it).

    Are there any fan driven books that people can recommend? 

    What LEGO books are your favourite?


  4. Compulsory entry fee might interfere with any charity status that could allow the LEGO supplies from the company. I am not sure about licensing issues, I think there could be a problem if the selling point was STAR WARS but probably not if it just so happens to figure in the display.


  5. Most I have heard of a voluntary, sharing the love of LEGO and creativity (plus a little bit of showing off). 

    So for a "show" situation where there is an event for a few days, the creators put their MOCs on display and attend to supervise them and talk to the public. At the comic con I display, I am not charged any table rates and while the offer to cover parking fees was appreciated I didn't need it. 

    For an exhibition that is going to stay in place for a long time behind display cases: Builder comes in and does set-up, but fan builders do not expect to get paid, they might leave an information card or have provided someone with details needed regarding the MOC. Then they'll collect it when everything is over.

    Businesses that make LEGO creations are the ones that need paying, commissioned work for businesses, events and the like. 

     

    I know some CADW sites hosted building days in the summer a few years ago, so someone in the museum might have a starting point there (I am not sure how interconnected the world of historical monuments and museum trusts are). 

    LEGO has something here that might help.

     


  6. I buy for parts alone.

    So LEGO should discontinue all themes and just make all parts manufactured available in all colours produced that I can then purchase by volume or weight, continue to release printed parts across a range of generic "genres" and make minifigs packs in generic themes so I can populate my MOCs.:grin:

    Or, I will keep on buying sets for parts I find useful and use Bricks and Pieces, PaB, BaM and Bricklink for other things to supplement my building supplies.

    I am entirely not a fan of Star Wars, but even that theme produces parts and prints I can re-use elsewhere. Harry Potter is something I was never into, but there are colours and parts and prints that are great. The list goes on.


  7.  

    Because sometimes I like my fantasy music to be Power Metal and sometimes I like it to be Electronica. 

    Really, seeing as the foundation of the music I love has been built upon a firm foundation of Electric Light Orchestra (Time is a sublime album) there are a lot of genres I love.
