    Stranger Things

    I finished binge-watching season 3 a bit ago. Overall I liked it. Hopper acting like a petulant kid got old though.

    [MOC] Pirate Island vs Imperial fort

    Nicely built, and nicely staged!

    What is your favorite Lego Theme?

    Pirates, then Castle (esp. 1984-1996), then ... well it's not really a specific theme, but third for me would be the non-SW large sets from the last decade or so.

    Vintage Pirates I posters?

    Don't know of any, though it's possible I guess. I have a Model Team poster in mint condition that came with an ebay purchase, which looks like it hadn't been touched in 30 years... maybe something similar with some Pirates stuff.

    Happy 30th Anniversary PIRATES!

    Yeah, while classic Pirates was my favorite theme when I was a young person, the later Pirates sets had their own strong points (a less garish color palette for example).

    What did you buy today?

    In the last couple weeks I've bought multiples of the Creator Pirate Roller Coaster (3x) and the Treehouse Treasures (2x). I'm slowly building up pieces/sets to do a Pirate-themed amusement park in the future.

    [MOC] the french castle

    Very nice! :)
  9. Just out of curiosity, when a set says it has a certain number of pieces, does that refer to the number in the finished main build, or does the number also include 'extra' pieces as well?

    Star Trek

    I'm cautiously optimistic about the Picard series, even though I haven't been able to get into Discovery.

    What franchise should Lego do next?

    The fan-made versions of this have been great, but I'd love to see some official Horizon Zero Dawn sets, and not just the machines but also architecture, a bandit camp, and maybe some action scenes through a landscape.

    Either (older) Castle or Pirates
