    10264 Corner Garage

    Now that some days has past, I've reflected some more on this new modular. The Downtown Diner is an impressive build as a stand-alone, but to me doesn't fit in well with the older modulars. The style was simply too different. With Corner Garage, I feel like LEGO attempts to bridge the two styles and combine them in one model. And the result doesn't really work for me. I love dark orange and think the top floors are pretty nice looking, with some nice colours and details. And the Indiana Jones vet is possibly my favorite printed part in any modular so far. But the garage part... not so much. I'm not into garages and I don't think this particular garage is all that it could be; but it's the combination of the two that hurts the overall impression the most, for me. While garages in residentual areas, with appartments on top, is actually fairly common where I come from, having an actual gas station there is not. I know this is LEGO and that we shouldn't obsess too much about realism, and I usually don't. But this detail is too far fetched, even for me. I maintain that I will still get it eventually (in a sale), but I'll be modding out the garage for sure.
  2. Fun competition, thanks to those involved with it. I'm excited to see what I won.

    I don't really like the garage part, but the rest is great. I love dark orange, I love the vet idea (and the cheeky Indiana Jones reference), the figures look great and the animals likewise (though I would have liked a fresh colour for the parrot). I, for one, am pleased that they seem to have ditched the old-school plain smiley faces in favor of the more modern detailed type faces. Saves me the trouble of replacing them. The price bump, though... not so cool, LEGO. I'll get this, but will wait for a sale.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Dude, calm down. If that is really the case, you can't really be reading a lot... I agree with this. The Town Hall is #1 on the list of missed modulars I wish I had. And I'd personally much rather have a police station, in the style posted above, than a garage.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    A bloody garage?? Really? And I thought the diner was bad... Oh well, one can always hope that they'll at least re-release one of the older modulars as well next year.
  6. I'll be getting Emmet's Dream House, as I'm always interested in good parts packs for houses, but will pass on the rest. Nice gesture to give Classic Space fans a minifig pack btw, thumbs up for that.

    UK Sales

    We're supposed to have that offer in Denmark as well. But whenever I put an item in the basket that should qualify, I don't get the Christmas Box added - only the double VIP Points. Anyone else experience this?
  8. Very impressive work. Have you considered doing custom striped sails in various colours?
  9. I present to you... Santa Clausula and his (un)happy little helpers!

    MOC: Wolverine vs The Sentinels

    This is absolutely fantastic. Evokes memories of the original Days of Future Past comics.
  11. Very clever. I like it.

    Pirates theme getting better

    You mean like the rumors of a 40 year Castle celebration for 2018? Yeah... not holding my breath here.
