    Review Review: 60016 Tanker Truck

    Good review, but I'm curious to find out how you see 1950s in the orange recovery truck.
  2. Being Polish, I really like this. Dobrze zrobiona figurka :D

    If you could meet Tolkien himself...

    ARE YOU SERIOUS? The poetry is some of the best parts, a lot of it is what makes Lord of the Rings such great literature, certainly comparable to Jules Verne and other great authors. Go read Harry Potter or some other cheap drivel with no imagination put into it, will ya?

    REVIEW: 9464 The Vampyre Hearse

    Guys, a hot rod hearse isn't anything new.... American car customizers of the 1960s and 70s loved this kind of stuff. This looks like something Ed "Big Daddy" Roth would have built. A hot rod hearse is a classic example of this style. http://k53.pbase.com/v3/77/498077/1/46597774.carspic20.jpg The hearse is also obviously inspired by the Rat Fink art style. The reason the engine is so tall is because it has a supercharger.... a big thingy on top which sucks in air and makes the car go faster. http://i081.radikal.ru/0910/39/1c061655f4b1.jpg that said, great review! I'll totally pick this one up.
  6. Is this still available? I tried looking at it but it gave me the 404.

    Volksrod

    Good evening gentlemen. Here's my Volksrod in 10-wide (w/ fenders it would be thirteen-wide). I worked on it for a week, which is for me a record-breaking time. The hardest part was the hood. The model has opening doors and trunk, a detailed engine and interior. Black paint, gray rims, long exhaust tips, whitewall tires, custom vintage license plate with "RAPHYSBUG" on it. Also, rotating wheels. "Volksrod" - Volkswagen Type 1 with a chopped roof, lowered ride height, a front axle moved forward about half a meter (maybe a little less). This was a modification style originating in the 1970s, and still popular today. It even has door frames! Here's the gallery: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=499610 And yes, everything I wrote above was a direct translation of what I wrote on LUGpol. :P

    Bag End

    Looks very nice! I just noticed that "Bag End" is very like "Spinner's End".... heh.... another to add to the list of elements that JK Rowling copied from LOTR. :P

    LEGO Star Wars 2012 Pictures and Rumors

    Funny, I'm 14 and I worship everything that came in 1983 and before, and loathe everything that came after to the utmost degree :P Oh, and any idea on how much Jabba's Palace will cost? $59.99?
  13. Can you even begin to imagine the look on my face when I saw the tag on the Mechanic's shirt - "Raph"? Best. Minifigure. Ever. There are only a couple of minifigs in the whole history of all the series which has anything to do with cars, and he's called Raph - not a common name. Cars are probably the things I love in the world most (apart from my family), is that weird or what? Coincidence? TLG has been known to slip in very subtle nods to their fans :P I think I'm getting a bit too carried away though :P

    Dogs and LEGO

    My two dogs never chewed on LEGO, although a few minutes ago I caught one of them, the dachshund, nomming on a chocolate bar in the kitchen (true story). I was wondering what those scratching sounds were....
