    Favourite sets that you own

    Cool topic. I've thought about this before, and it's not easy, but I think I've narrowed it down to these 10: 1. 10188 Death Star 2. 75192 Millennium Falcon 3. 75313 AT-AT 4. 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina 5. 10261 Roller Coaster 6. 493 Space Command Center 7. 10185 Green Grocer 8. 10210 Imperial Flagship 9. 10194 Emerald Night 10. 76178 Daily Bugle Way to many honorable mentions: most of the other modulars, 89 Batmobile, Winter Village sets, Home Alone house, Mustang, Aston Martin, Disney castle, Saturn V, Pirates of Barracuda Bay, Haunted Mansion, Jabba's palace, Cloud City, UCS Slave I, and of course all classic space sets!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Just built this as well. I love the modulars, and get the new one for New Year's every year. I agree also, I may try to modify the floors and make them a bit taller. One minor thing I didn't like was step 230...the round 1x1 plates just rest on top of the assembly. Are they supposed to "fit" on the 1x1 round tile with bar and pin holder? I couldn't get it to so I assumed they just "rest" there. Of course the next couple of steps help secure them with plates and stuff, but I prefer all pieces to fit before moving on, maybe it's just me. It's a fun building though and lots of great details.

    Would you rather build in person or online?

    I love the hands-on, building and constructing with Lego. I’m not creative enough to “build” on the computer. I appreciate those that do, but for me, I’m an in-person guy.
  4. Yep just revealed. Nov. 26 Black Friday. I'm guessing Luke's lightsaber will be the GWP?

    LEGO Ideas Discussion

    Ah ok so here is some discussion about the Home Alone set. I can't find other place in these forums that has any reviews/discussion about it. Am I not seeing the correct place? I see other Ideas sets scattered in other forum topics like Licensed, Special themes, etc. Does it just depend on the set itself where it fits best? Anyway, hoping to see a review from someone here soon.

    Updating Your Minifigs

    Ok quick question, do any of you “update” your stormtroopers with the white utility belt (27145)? Just occurred to me after seeing Luke from the Death Star Escape Set a couple years ago has a white one (like in ANH after the trash compactor scene he puts on the Stormtrooper belt back on before he swings across with Leia). I mean the yellow one looks good on Batman and I kinda even like the brown one on Boba, but outfitting all stormies with a belt is it too much lol?

    LEGO 75192 Stands

    I have the acrylic display stand (Mark 2) from Kingdom Brick Supply and have it displayed vertically. No issues at all after over a year on display. Also if you go back to the 75192 MOD thread there are some good displays, both brick built and specially made displays.

    Seinfeld Lego Ideas Discussion

    Same here. The only minor disappointment for me is it would've been a great opportunity for Lego to make a Superman microfig instead of using a plain blue one.

    [REVIEW] 76388 Hogsmeade Village Visit

    Thank you for the great review! Gonna try to pick this up between now and the holidays and see if we can incorporate into our Winter Village layout.
  10. I was really surprised at the crowd today at my local Lego store. Got there about 30 min before opening and was about 40th in line. They also had 60 R2s and by time they opened there were way more people in line than that. Surprised at how popular this set has been. Looks like a great set though and looking forward to building it.

    LEGO IDEAS 21326 - Winnie the Pooh

    This one would be great for Kessie... https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=27370pb03&name=Duplo Bird with White Chest Pattern, Yellow Beak and Feathered Eye Borders&category=[Duplo, Animal]#T=S&C=105&O={"color":105,"iconly":0} Hard to find though. You could always do the azure bird from the last two modulars.
  12. Can someone kindly point me to info on NI-L8 protocol droid? My limited Star Wars knowledge and lack of info on typical searches leads me to nothing lol.

    Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    I’ve only had missing pieces twice. Both this year. Both Star Wars. I was finally able to get the UCS Falcon and it had 3 missing pieces. All very small, common pieces that I had, but still, I was kinda surprised. And the Cantina had an opened bag inside. I was a bit nervous it was gonna be missing a lot, but I was only missing the reddish brown container box. Luckily I had an extra in my own bins. I wasn’t planning on calling them to replace any of these, but maybe I should to let them know about quality control issues. My guess is quality control at Lego has slipped a bit this year, maybe due to trying to quickly fulfill demand which seems to be at an all time high for them.
  14. I had to wait a few weeks after I signed up for them to email me when they had new stock. I went with the Mark 2, not sure how different it is from the first version though.
  15. The Nebulon B Frigate Set that was originally for SDCC. Set 77904. Is this the last of the sets for 2020?
