    REVIEW | Creator Expert 10273 Haunted House

    Just wondering: Is this the first ever handicap accessible building in LEGO history?

    Thoughts on The Last Jedi Sets

    Heaven forbid a military group have ships that color match. Oh, and that bomber was the most satisfying build I've had since Poe's X-Wing. The TIE was ok, but it's still just another TIE. My guess is that you're a First Order loyalist who misses the good old days when the Emperor was still in power. ;)

    MOC: Apollo Launch Tower

    It depends on how strong you want it. I recommend that you look at the instructions for the Sydney Opera House and the UCS Millennium Falcon for some ideas how to create a rigid internal frame to a large model using Technic beams. I've built both, and the internal frames are key for each model.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Just finished building 75188. I'm guessing everyone is too busy building the Force Friday II sets to talk about them... Initial impressions: I like it a lot. It's almost big enough to be a capitol ship. Kind of weird that it has three rear-facing cockpits and only one forward. I thought that the black bomb spheres were the same size as the basketballs and soccer balls, but they are actually larger by a noticeable amount. So much for another source of GBC balls. It reminds me a little of the Nebulon-B due to its vertical orientation and larger scale than that of B-wings. (It has seats for all 5 figs and room for two more, easily.) I can't wait to see it in action in December now. Next up, 75179.

    "Possible" re-release of rare parts

    Sorry, you'll get no sympathy from me either. The idea that some people tried to profit off of selling individual bricks for well over $100 was nauseating to me. When I bricklinked my UCS Falcon, I didn't buy any bricks that cost more than a couple dollars each at most. All those scalpers who were trying to sell UCS Falcon boxes, instructions and incomplete sets for ungodly amounts of money get no sympathy either. I hope that they all lost a lot of money from this. But I'm pretty grumpy anyways. Maybe someone else will commiserate with you?

    Welp, the Arc de Triomphe was underwhelming.

    [WIP] Fastest Lego Technic Motorless Car

    I wonder if you could put 40T gears on the sprung axle and 16T gears on the wheeled axle. :)

    GBC General Discussion

    Anybody see that there will be solid black balls in one of the Fall Star Wars sets? (I think that's a new color, right?)

    [MOC] Flower of separators

    Of course there's only one per set. I'm saying that they include them in so many sets now though, that it isn't difficult to have enough to make this flower. Or three.

    [MOC] Flower of separators

    I probably have four times that many, just from buying sets the past couple of years.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    All of this, plus: Movie is released: User 1: Meh, X is totally inaccurate. User 2: Meh, why did they make X instead of Y? User 3: ZOMG, it's so accurate, best LEGO set EVER.

    Architecture 2017

    Shanghai is a wonderful choice, and if done justice, could be amazing. I've actually been suggesting Shanghal and Hong Kong for a while. Las Vegas, though... what a huge surprise. It's going to be different, that's for sure. Outside of the Stratosphere, the buildings aren't all that tall. The buildings are still huge though, because they have enormous footprints. The surprise is that Vegas has been drifting away from the family vacation destination and back to being an adult playground for many years now.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Hindsight is 20/20... Someone should have made a UCS Falcon rumors, speculation, wishlist and blather thread a long, long time ago, then the mods could just move all the pointless discussion of it far, far away.

    REVIEW: 75171 Battle on Scarif

    Broken poll is still broken? I think it's just an average set, and frankly I got it for two reasons: 1. I'm a completist. 2. I wanted the orange crate so that my hover tank has two.

    21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V (LEGO Ideas)

    I'm building this with my daughter. Since everything is symmetrical, it's a nice build to share with someone, and it minimizes the repetitiveness. We just finished stage I today. It's a really nice build so far.
  25. I think we could use more pictures. :)
