    REVIEW: 10937 Batman: Arkham Asylum Breakout

    This set is awesome. I love the building and the truck. Great minifigs. Tons of details. I really want it but I still haven't got the Haunted House Yet

    Tournament of Retribution III Rules and Entries Overview

    Is there any ready made examples I could check out? Their is a lot of rules, I did read them and I think I might understand but an example comic would be great :)
  4. Why do they come out with these so fast? Everytime I go to any store (Toys R Us, Barnes & Noble, and sometimes even the Lego store) they are sold out with just an empty box on the shelf. Of course plenty on ebay. Why didn't they ever put them in the supermarkets? I'm guessing maybe they couldn't do to some other company having hands on the end caps and impulse buy section. It's crazy how they are already coming out with series 10. All I've been able to get is 4 packs of series 6, and on black Friday I bought packs of series 7 and 8. When they first came out it was impossible to get the first series, 2nd 3rd. Unless of course, ebay. The sets come and go faster then I can ever afford. But mini figures are somethng everyone can afford if they can only have a chance to purchase. :/
  5. Would this be a good book for somone like me who would like to start using technic to try building one of those awesome trucks I see people make on youtube? The trial trucks or cars of the like. Does it have a bunch of gear boxes? I've always wanted to try and even bought power functions long ago meaning to try.

    DC Doodles - Superheroes month

    Those are really great and great shadowing too. I take a life drawing class & paint in both acrylic and oils. It would take me a long time to do anything comparable and it would be that good. Such great chareacters!

    Superhero Video Contest!

    I like the contest idea. 10fps gives more people a chance. Woulda been nicer if it was 15 which is the normal for this kind of low frame animation. But that's ok. I have an Iphone 3Gs but I'm getting a 5 soon. Who did the picture? I love the barbecue who made it?

    Review: 10228 Haunted House

    Yes I agree. Maybe someone will work on an Addam's Family/Munsters House conversion that we can do. I still have saved a page with people who showed and made a better outside gated area. I am trying to get all the Monster Fighters sets but only have the castle set so far. I should have bought this house already but I'm scraping money. I think this month the Lego calendar shoues double VIP points on the 22nd or so. I'll try to buy it then. I also saw at the beginning of the month that Lego store online had the bundled sets package offered to give double xp points but I checked after, & it was totally sold out!
  11. My niece who is 9, always liked lego but never into as much to even pick out & really ask for a set like she now does with friends. I even took her to the first Lego Friends Club Meeting. She enjoyed it too. They gave her the shirt and a nice take home bag. It was fun, my only complaint was that I don't understand why they didn't put a table out, they build on the ground floor, and help them a little more. Everyone was very friendly. Has anyone wrote a post on how the first meeting was? Maybe I should. I notice the Director is Portuguese. I'm Portuguese too. :) Living in the US. Born here.

    Modular Madness: Recycling station

    That's really great I love it. I want one in my town too :D
  13. These are great! IMe and my niece are definitely getting the MF Haunted House Next month right away. I've been waiting for a Lego Halloween theme forever now. We just got the Vampyre Castle but I want to try to get all the sets.

    Friends "Controversy"

    My lil niece went straight to the Freinds section in the store. She was amazed and exited like never before. Lego is her favorite toy and she liked the sets before but now she is begging for Friends sets. But my niece has also gone mainstream and was Hannah Montanna crazy. I like the Friends sets. She got a kids sewing machine for Christmas from grandma and in Jan picked out a Friends Fashion Designer Emma set which comes with great tools and house objects which she incorporated into her Lego House. The sets may not appeal to everyone but I think they will appeal to most. While I don't think Lego needed to create and stick to these new colors, it's what what grabs the kids attention at the store when there is a spot in an isle with matching pastel color boxes.

    New modular building? 10224 Town Hall

    Thank you, I think I will as soon as I can. I noticed that the Lego store here in Burlington, MA in the US doesn't stock it anymore and it's no longer as built model displayed in the store. That's what made me a little worried but I see it is still on shop at home. :)

    New modular building? 10224 Town Hall

    I agree! I still don't have any modular buildings but I want one so bad. My niece really likes the pet shop and emporium but I think we should get the Fire Station (Fire Brigade) first, because that is the oldest still available? Am I correct? She would like it just as much if not, almost as much. I would love to slowly collect them and sorry I missed out on the Green Grocer which is now selling for hundreds of dollars and some say it's one of the best modulars.
  17. The Gorilla is cute! The ELf is kool. The spaceman, eh, plain looking imo. I don't know why the mummy is there when you can get those easily. I bought the Egyption Mummy Pack for $7 and on New Years it was $3.50! It comes with 4 Egyption Mymmys and a sarcauphacus, red snakey, jewls, and the mummy's have kool helmets and one has wings. Their were plenty of way better minifigs to pick from, like the Dracula one or a robot. We have never gotten a real rboto minifig except in those exclusive packs
  18. I was just looking at it on there too and it looks like a great deal. I got the old pink box for my niece a couple years back. This one looks much better because it's not mostly 2x4, 2 by whatevers. My niece would love this one.

    MOC/MOD: Eight New Vehicles for my City

    Those are some great vehicles! I'm trying to learn to make good cars and I feel inspired. My faves were the Buggy, the Modern, the last race car and the Steinwinter thing-a-ma-bob lol

    Santa's Sleigh

    Looks kool. I especially like the last picture. I'm guessing the first one with wings is like Rodolph and his red nose.

    Winter Village: Inn

    That is really nice. How did you get the pieces for it? Did you just use a Post Office Set?

    Anyone have a link to last years entry pics? I just wanted to check them out.

    Jellybeans in a Jar?

    I kind of wonder now if it's still worth the trouble to pack tight spaces with those single trans studs. After going to numerous PAB's with my niece, our tubs are FILLED with these things we barely use. I mean, you can only make so many headlights for cars or stained glass windows lol or stud towers like my niece makes lol Seems like the best thing these thousands of studs are good for is making us feel like we got a better deal hah.

    MOC: Milk and Cookies

    I really like it a lot. I love the couch! And the fireplace too. I'm going to have to copy those. My niece was asking to make her a couch for her house... Where does that beard come from? I have 4 Santas from Advent Calendars and this years Holiday Limited Edition set 2 of 2 and they all have the same long beard. Is the one you have used there, from the MiniFig Series?
  25. It'd be nice to at least have a chance to collect a series. I remember one of Lego's problems was making too many unique pieces just for a few sets. That was one of the things they had to stop doing to save the company. I guess maybe that's why these minifg series are so limited? Because they can't take a big risk to keep them around longer and more units? I thought they were going to sell these at super markets in the impulse shelf at the register, and at CVS, and other stores like the way Pokemon cards sold. I've seen them at Barnes and Noble in the Lego section. The problem is that I like so much of the sets and figures but they come and go so fast! I mean give us a chance. I have once found that they were featuring some of the minifigs as parts in the build-a-fig station where you build a 3 pack. But it had no accessories featured in the packs. My niece built the cheer leader, but had no pom poms. I dunno it just seems crazy at how much stuff us all coming at the same time and now they have a full on girls line coming. Lego is like gold now. If you have thousands of dollars you can buy a bunch of sets and sell them in 1-2 years on ebay for profit. Or hold on them like gold bullion. Better then saving money in the bank for barley any interest, and decreasing value due to inflation of the US dollar. I used to sell silver and gold. That's why I make the comparison. The review was awesome. These new minifigs are absolutely amazing and all the stuff Lego is coming out with is amazing. The Lego Company seems to be doing really good now and becoming more popular as time goes by and now with the new girls line, it's only going to become even more so. I can't think of another company that makes so many releases of one type of toy. I don't know how they are able to do it.
