    <p> Hi, I'm Leewan, Regulator of the Action Figures subforum, but I'm interested in all kind of themes, as long as the sets are good. </p>

  1. That's my feeling as well. Doesn't sound too good for the future. Still, hopefully I'll be able to put my hands on some of those parts once B&P is "fixed".
  2. It's actually from the Lego Boost Star Wars set (on R2's head and the Gonk Droid).

    There's no cab floor because Mickey's ears require extra height. So you put him on the CMF stand on the "driving bogie" instead. A bit weird, yeah, but necessary.

    Take this with a HUGE grain of salt

    This was believable... Until the last two sentences. They tried to use Faber's name to give legitimacy to the story, but when you think of it, it doesn't make sense. Christian Faber started to post artworks on Instagram in April because he wants to relaunch Bionicle. He said he hadn't met with Lego, he wasn't sure it would actually happen, or even that the name would remain Bionicle, but no, he's actually pulling a switcheroo, and these artworks are in fact teasers for a theme he worked on that will be released in 2020. So he had to lie because of a supposed NDA that doesn't really matter anyway since he's allowed to post artwork online. Why ? To prepare the few remaining Bionicle fans for this theme, taking the risk to alienate them if they find out he mocked them. Perhaps all of it will turn out to be true, but as long as I haven't seen official pictures of those sets, I won't believe anything about any possible future Constraction theme.

    I wrote that review on NE, so it's my fault if it's not entirely clear. The driving wheels are indeed on a separate bogie (notice how a 30552 is used to limit the rotation, it's a nice trick) : The locomotive can't take curves if you fix the driving wheels to the boiler. You can always replace the first pair of wheels with blind wheels, but even that way there will be friction, and if it's the second pair of wheels you replace, they will hang in the air and it looks ridiculous.

    So, what are Leaf, IP-2 and Zebra?

    I must have mentioned it already in the Action Figure subforum, but I'd love to see something similar to Code Lyoko. There would be a team of four or six teens (two / three boys and two / three girls) who would go into a virtual world and fight monsters. It could simply be for a game, or to fight an evil entity (or perhaps both, like the IA that controls the ennemies in a MMORPG went mad and threatens the whole internet). There would be a set for the virtual version of each character (and perhaps a minifig of their real-life selves ?), sets for various-sized monsters, and the sets could work with an app like Hidden Side so the heroes would actually fight in the virtual world.

    Well, there's been BIONICLE and Hero Factory vehicles before, so a Classic Space Constraction theme could have spaceships. Not big ones, but still. But it doesn't matter anyway, since according to this (most probably fake) story, Lego didn't retain this theme. And I, for one, won't believe there's a new Constraction theme coming next year until I see official pictures of it.

    Simply Action Figure. I'd like that. But a bigger scale would allow more details, so perhaps it would rather be busts like this year's promotional SW sets ?

    It's just a molding issue, like this helmet, or that leg. That sort of thing happened to me once, one of the tread links from a 8259 was "incomplete", as if there weren't enough plastic injected in the mold. I'm sure I still have it somewhere, so I'll make a pic if I find it.
  10. It took me some time to get a nice result, and it's still far from being perfet, but I've managed to make two renders with the volumetric lighting. The images resized by Flickr don't really do justice to the original renders, unfortunately, so I'd suggest checking them in full size by clicking the links below each picture. (Full size) (Full size) For those who are interested, there's more renders of this MOC on Flickr.

    Both of the new Overwatch sets (to be released in October) will feature Technic parts in new colours : • 75976 has at least one 3M axle with stud in yellow (as well as four Hordika necks in orange, if you count them as Technic parts). • 75977 has at least two cams in yellow, and at least two sprockets in either dark orange or medium nougat / medium dark flesh.

    42099 - 4x4 X-treme Off-Roader

    New for a Technic set. I'd be surprised if it's not Bright Light Orange.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 75936 - Jurassic Park

    No you're not. I loved the set 4507 when I was a kid, and was longing to see another big brick-built Tyrannosaurus like that (I mean, there have been a lot of dinosaur-themed Creator sets since then, but I think 4507 was the best). This rendition of Rexy is excellent, and I would have loved to be able to get her alone. Not that I don't like the gate, though, but I simply don't care enough for it to want to buy it.
