    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Due to Chinese copyright law, not much can be done but making original version more available. If only choice is copy for 300$ vs original with scalpel price of 3000$, then no wonder lepin is having so many offers on ebay. With 300vs600 I guess lepin would not be that interesting unless day one same.

    I was shocked when I saw how many lepin falcon sets have been sold on ebay. We are talking about resellers but those numbers seems to be peanuts compared to knock-off sales. If lego just reissue falcon lepin is day one ready so I'm pretty shure that lego will make changes if not for any other reason then to delay having copies on the market.

    Sucks even more to have some banned without any known reason.

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Just my two cents on ucs- According to what I see in shops in Europe, most popular sets are sub 50 eur with 10-20 dominating and being often out of the shelves. My point is that lego certainly respect afol community but their bread and butter are still kids and their parents not so eager to spend 300eur and more on bricks. Same MF that we now want reissued was being sold for way too long and I saw it on multiple sales. Market for ucs is not big, i.e. is super small and hence lego now trying to push playsets- something richer kids will actually ask parents for a present instead of super big dust magnet set that for what is worth could be glued when assembled. Or even bought from Chinese as a knock off for much less which from distance appears almost the same. I have a feeling that even if they push mf it will be more for marketing purposes (like technics Porsche I see now on discounts and in huge quantities all over shops in ch begging to be sold) as looks super fine in magazines, but will still struggle to be sold out in any decent quantity.

    Could Eurobricks staff enable Tapatalk?

    Two and a half years later to post my personal opinion- I would participate in discussions of EB if tapatalk enabled as all forums I visit are tapatalk friendly so super easy just to swap. But I guess that will is not happening ever.
  6. Let me guess, it was purchased in migros, coop or manor :)

    [MOC] Stark Industries Armory [Iron Man Hall of Armor]

    This looks extraordinary! Sorry for late reply but just now noticed this topic. This would be great as proposal for lego ideas (with focus on armors to keep brick count reasonable. I know I would buy it in heartbeat.
  8. Great series. I'm just a bit dissapointed that there is no Barney, Lionel Hutz or Dr. Riviera.

    2014 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    You made sad people happy again
  10. Bought it yesterday on heavy discount (1/4 of the price) and my son is really enjoying playing with vehicle. He really likes suspension system. But, tbh he doesn't care for figures so much and he constantly asked me where are ninjago figures. Hence the discount, I presume. Edit: Forgot to tell that I was hugely disappointed since one of the parts (bigger yellow front part with sticker) was scratched right out of the box. We have bought literally hundreds of sets so far, in my childhood and now for my children and this is first time I ever saw damaged part right out of the box. CQ in lego is not as it used to be :(

    10240 Red Five X-wing Starfighter

    My guess is as good as yours, but considering that they have started remaking ucs, I think that falcon is on the top list of models waiting for remake. It sold pretty well when it came out and will most probably appear in sw7. I wouldn't hold my breath since we waited 13 years for x-wing but in the future years we can expect more remakes.

    10240 Red Five X-wing Starfighter

    Please compare these three pictures: New model is much closer to original w-wing and front part is greatly modeled in order with original. Also, r2d2 size is proportional to the one in original model. The engines are now realistyc, wings are much more detailed and even thou modifications seems small compared to 7191, they are not if you compare them to original x-wing.

    Harrison ford just have signed for SW7: http://www.thehollywoodnews.com/2013/02/15/harrison-ford-confirmed-for-abrams-star-wars-episode-vii/ And now it is safe bet to expect falcon in sw7. So making new falcon ucs will not be great just for original trilogy admirers, but also for promoting new disney trilogy. I think that not only we will see new falcon ucs but that it will surpass original one in brick number.

    I think that proportion is great and up to this day the most precise model so far:
