    What are the floors made out of, and how did you stick those tan technic pins on the bush thing?

    [REVIEW] 21323 Grand Piano

    I agree that the power functions are completely unnecessary. They actually make it seem cheap to me. I think they could have actually used metal tines to create the sound. I love the mechanical stuff in this set, but I would be more likely to buy it if they didn’t include the powered stuff. I'm curious - could you make the piano thicker if you don't include the powered stuff, or do the mechanical parts also require that much space?
  3. Why don’t they put the same info on the European boxes?
  4. The old version averages $6.49 used on Bricklink. I imagine this new one will be much cheaper, especially if it ends up in Bricks & Pieces.
  5. Pardon me if this is being discussed somewhere else, but I wasn't able to find a thread where people are talking about this. Check out the Mickey and Minnie's noses in 43179. Do my eyes deceive me, or are these black classic space helmets???

    LEGO Ideas Discussion

    When I saw this on thebrickfan, I thought it was using metal rods to play the notes. If it's true that it only plays through your phone and the keys don't play individual notes, that's super disappointing for me. Maybe some people will modify it though.

    42113 Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey

    I just watched Jang's video about this, and I think he's right. I'm not sure where the idea originated that it was this tiny protest that caused TLG to do this. It obviously wasn't considering how small it was. I'm not happy with this "cancel culture" in general, but I'm glad to see that isn't the case here. I wonder if the people in leadership didn't realize that this plane(?) is a military exclusive, and the people who make the decisions only found out when they received negative feedback.

    42113 Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey

    The Indiana Jones sets literally had Nazis with machine guns. There's not much that hasn't been said here already, but I'd like to add my vote here and say I'm also of the opinion that this "cancel culture" BS is ridiculous. But what bothers me almost as much is how everything Lego makes these days has to be licensed. You have to expect this type of "controversy" (if you can call it that) to happen when you associate yourself with another business. Why not just stop all this licensed crap and go back to traditional LEGO System?

    [MOC] Lego Pneumatic Steam Locomotive

    Wow! This is absolutely amazing.
  10. That image restoration is absolutely amazing. For some reason, I've just never seen anyone touch up old Lego images before. Most of the scans online are pretty crappy. I'm so excited to see this stuff brought back to life! I have a four year old soon who loves old Lego stories, and he's going to be ecstatic when he sees this. I'll have to find a place that will print it properly, like a real comic book!
  11. This is absolutely fantastic! Thank you so much for doing this! I can't wait to read this to my son. If you'd like to do some work on The Golden Medallion, I can send you my original scans. And you probably already saw this, but one of our fellow members also posted the work he did in this thread: Does anyone have the front cover to this sequel?

    [REVIEW] 42111 Dom's Dodge Charger

    I think this photo explains my opinion of this set better than I could ever put into words: They've made my points so well, comparing this thing to the real car, with a depiction to the right of what this model looks like (the brown stuff in the shovel).
  13. Hey there fellow brickolino! Thank you so much for doing this! It looks way better than the original scans. Maybe at some point we'll even be able to reprint the comic and make it look just like the original. I'll print one for my son. I daren't give him the original, but he loves this book. That's what originally prompted me to do these scans. One year later, it's finally ready.
  14. Hey, that would be terrific! I will send you a link to the original images as soon as I can. Thank you so much! I just sent you a message. Let me know when you’ve gotten it. I can’t wait to see what you do!
