  1. So far in the past years, we've seen in a Christmas Winter Village: *Toy Shop *Winter Bakery *Post Office What else would you like to see in the future for the Winter Village? My prediction is it's going to be a church or a simple village home. What is your prediction?
  2. Everyone remembers galaxy squad. Some liked it, some didn't. But everyone can probably agree that it was our last original,thought out, classic space theme. I liked it, but probably not the kids. At least that's what I suspect, considering the mark downs at Walmart. Because "nooooooo no no no"! Kids didn't want this. They wanted this! "Sigh" So where does that leave us? Stuck buying something like this? So I'm thinking "If kids want Star Wars, why not make sets aimed towards adults?" Creator Expert Series anyone? Why not make a $100 to $500 dollar classic space for AFOL? What do you think?
  3. Hi everyone, I recently built my first modular MOC and I'd like to present it here as well... With as many as 50000 residents on a footprint of just 126 x 213 meters, Hong Kong's Kowloon Walled City once was the most densely populated settlement in the world. While this model depicts only four of its levels, the actual building complex reached a height of up to 14 stories as new structures were frequently built on top of older ones. Streets were overbuilt, turning into corridors full of water pipes and exposed electrical wiring. The city housed numerous low-cost production facilities such as small workshops and food factories. Living space was scarce inside the labyrinth-like city, but residents could enjoy fresh air and sunlight on the rooftops. The complex of intertwined buildings was finally demolished in the early nineties, but its unique construction style and dense urban aesthetic have served as an inspiration for a number of fictional settings, possibly even for Lego's Ninjago City set with its stacked architecture. The model features advertising signs as well as a grocery store at the outer face of the city, a noodle factory, a metal workshop, one of the dark alleyways at ground level, a fish gutter's shop, a stairwell, two very cramped apartments, caged balconies, a weaving and sewing shop, a dentist's office, a light well obstructed by lattices and clothes, a cookshop, a dough sheet bakery, and rooftops packed with TV antennas. Details include a carrying pole, neon tubes, a noodle machine, a fan, food items, beds, a hearth, clothes lines, a loom, and a sewing machine. This has 2385 pieces, by the way. Well, I'm a big fan of the modulars Lego has released so far, but they all look colorful and clean and sort of European/American. I decided to submit this on Lego Ideas (there's also some pictures of the interior) because I'd love it if a more densely built, dark, "ugly" or even cyberpunk-y model were released for once (though of course Ninjago City already went in the right direction). What do you think?
  4. If there a Cinematic Universe based upon a particular franchise you'd like to see adapted, or aren't pleased with the direction it is currently going? Is there a book, graphic novel, or series of novels you'd love to see come to the big screen? Is there a movie you think deserves a new remake or reimagining? Is there a cinematic adaptation of a certain source material you think would perhaps instead be better suited for the small screen, as a TV show or Mini-Series? If you have any better ideas on how Hollywood can handle adapting some of your favorite books, movies, graphic novels, videogames, and more, these are only a few questions to help express your opinions on what you would do instead!

    How to Promote Lego Ideas Projects

    Hi everyone I have recently added my first project to Lego Ideas. I wondered can anyone offer me any advice on the best ways to promote my project? So far all I've done is created a topic about it on Eurobricks and shared some of the pictures in a few Flickr groups. Are there any other methods I could use to give my model some more exposure and gain more support? Are there any other Lego related sites that are good for showing MOC's or Lego Ideas projects? Also I don't use Facebook, Twitter or Instagram but do you think any of those would be worth a go? This is the first time I've used Lego Ideas so I'm learning as I go along. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

    Problem with Lego Ideas

    Hi everyone I have been working on a design recently which I want to add as my first entry as a Lego Ideas project. I am having problems setting up my account though. I logged in to Lego Ideas using my standard Lego ID which I set up years ago and doesn't have the same user name that I use on here or Flickr. I want them to match though so that people can easily find my project once I've added it to Ideas. Under account preferences on Lego Ideas there is an option to change the username but when I try to do this it just throws up an error message and wont let me do it. Has anyone else had problems with this and if so how did you solve it? I've emailed the Lego Ideas customer service but they haven't got back to me and I received an auto generated message basically saying that they are a small team and it might take them a long time to reply to emails. So I'm not holding my breath that I'll ever hear back from them.

    Best Lego Ideas projects

    This topic is for showcasing OTHER's projects on Ideas that you found cool and/or worthy of support. Post and share anything you like as long as the project is not yours. No self promoting of your own project(s). Most importantly? Have fun!
  9. Pop-Up Book was approved and will be become an official LEGO set!
  10. Hi there! I thought I'd start this thread because I figured we all have ideas of BrickHeadz we'd like to see made. Especially with the tease of getting BrickHeadz from TV shows! I personally would love to see some BrickHeadz based on the new POTC movie! Maybe some Minecraft BrickHeadz as well. But with the TV shows idea some Flarrowverse BrickHeadz would be incredible! Anyways there you go, fire off your ideas!
  11. Power functions: 1x L motor 1x Servo motor
  12. Dear Lego Technic engineers, I’ll take this time to present to you my latest and most serious MOC. Challenger MT800E tractor. I got my inspiration from the FS17 game I’m playing, where is one of my favorites. I spent a month developing it, I didn’t rush it, I took my time, and it turned out quite ok (at least I think so). I wanted it to be a Claas Xerion contender. So it’s built in the same scale as Claas. I tried to replicate it as close as possible to the real thing, so I implemented the same features as on the real tractor. Same shape front weights, the position of the mirrors, lights, stairs and hand rails. Big tractor deserves a big exhaust. By the way, not all of them have front hitch, mine does. Front and rear view By the pure looks of it, it set itself apart from other tractors out there (both real and Lego). And it’s controlled by S-brick, because I didn’t want chunky and clunky Lego RC receivers sticking out of the model. Front engine cover functions just like on the real tractor; it gives access to the battery box (engine). The only thing wrong here is that the cover is one stud taller than it should be because I had to make room for the things inside. To get the correct shape and for the colors that were involved, I kind of compromise its structural rigidity in the back section where the hinge is (I hope it won’t fall apart). View of the lifted engine cover Same features in the cabin as on the real one. Joystick, computer, display, dash. Close up of the cabin Now, the rear hydraulic lift system is a bit simpler than the real one. Mine has a few levers less, but it functions in the same way, and it looks the same. It goes up and down and swings from side to side (which is the unique feature on this tractor) together with the drawbar hitch which is standard equipment and PTO. A 3-point ball hitch can be implemented at any time. But don’t get full by it, it’s still very complex mechanism to put in such small space and to make it work. View of the rear hydraulic lift system with different attaches Let’s talk about the chassis and drivetrain a little bit. The XL motor is for drive; it’s geared up to 1.67 to get the approximate speed of 1.2km/h otherwise it would be too slow. The whole thing weighs around 1.3kg (I calculated) so I think it shouldn’t be a problem (although I don’t know will it be enough when you attach something to it; a trailer or an implement of some kind). The power is transferred to the small sprocket which is in between the 2 motorcycle wheels on the bottom so it sits on the track and it always has a weight pushing on them so it’s always in contact with the track. The motorcycle wheels are stationary, they don’t turn, the track glides over them. The original idea was to offset motorcycle wheels by 90 degrees, get power to them, and put 4 stationary small sprockets in between. But when I tried it, the sprockets just wouldn’t align to the track correctly. So I had to compromise and do it this way. The front wheel is attached to the big shock absorber which acts as a track tensioner. The midwheels are oscillated front to back and left to right (just like on the real tractor). For steering I used an L motor (that’s the one on top) and dual differential steering system (thanks to @Tommy Styrvoky). The steering output speed is 9:1 at the differentials. PTO is directly powered by another L motor (the one at the bottom). The M motor on top is for the rear hydraulic lift system. The orange friction cylinders are dumpers so that the hydraulics can’t swing freely side to side by its own. On tracks I put those rubber things for better traction (BTW, they only exist in red color but it looked stupid so I colored them dark gray). Top and bottom view of the chassis And yes, there is a black limited edition. PDF instruction AVAILABLE! DISCLAIMER: This is built in LDD. I don’t have real Legos, so I can NOT be 100% certain that this will work. I’m hoping it will, because I’ve paid attention to, calculated, considered, thought through, almost everything. I made sure that every connection is possible, and that nothing hits anything that it’s not supposed to. This time I used colors that exist in real life, so no more parts and colors errors. The only thing that I’m worried about are the rear drive wheels. Will my solution actually work? It should in theory. Anyway, enjoy it and have fun with it. The other colors are just for the fun of it. UPDATE 1 I managed to secure the white worm gear with little modifications, so that it will stay in place and it won't fall off. And now, it looks like this: UPDATE 2 PDF instructions are finished. Here is the link: Challenger MT800E building instructions UPDATE 3 I submitted this MOC on Lego Ideas . If you like it, please support it. Although it needs some corrections to the drivetrain, if it passes forward, I will make sure to do them. I will iron out every wrinkle there is and correct every mistake. And I will make it compatible with standard Lego receivers The deadline for 100 supporters is July 18th 2018. UPDATE 4 New deadline for 1000 supporters is July 16th 2019. Now I have the time and the drive to fix some things, and slowly but surely make it work properly. Thank you

  15. Dear all I am new to Eurobricks but felt it would be a worthwhile experience to join up and share something with you. In essence, I am looking for some help and or advice. I have been a serious collector of LEGO for around 7 years and have manged to build up, in my most humble of opinions, a rather large collection. All of my items items are either Marvel, DC or Cuusoo/ Ideas with a very small amount of loose Star Wars minifigures, promotional LEGO giveaways etc. Every single set, polybag, book, DVD, comic etc has been purchased, bubble wrapped, boxed and stored safely. 99% of the collection is mint and sealed with a few exceptions which are near mint but still sealed. Not one item has been opened. It has been an obsession of mine for a while and the collection has been built up and cared for extremely well. However, space is now becoming a bit of an issue so I posed the question to myself, "What on earth am I going to do with all this LEGO?" In summary, I have 310 lots made up from sets, keyrings, books, dvds, polybags and specials. I have multiples of some sets. I have every single Cuusoo/ Ideas set every made, 116 DC Comics lots, 123 Marvel Comics lots and 35 Marvel/ DC keyrings. With Comic Con and USA exclusives aside, I have every single DC and Marvel set, polybag, magnet, book and keyring released since 2011. I honestly do not know what to do. Do I keep going knowing that Marvel and DC sets will continue to be released probably after I have gone, do I bite the bullet and sell them all or do I just stop buying and sit on them all for a few years? Any help or advice would be hugely appreciated. I have a detailed spreadsheet of the entire collection. If anyone would like to see it, please just ask. With thanks in advance

  18. Hi, how are you doing? So... just as a future reference point, how do you feel about self-promoting your Ideas submissions on here? Are they allowed, and- more intriguing to me- do you respect them? Is it too desperate/low-brow to you? I've been debating whether I should put any and all my future Ideas submissions on here, I'm curious what you guys think about it? Thanks, I appreciate it!
  19. Here is my first lego ideas project, i have created a new band of fruits characters. Hope you like it ! you can see the project here : https://ideas.lego.com/projects/2f2e4b8d-cb4d-41b3-afc7-d24b5e48c039 friendly & fruity :D

    The Glacier Falls Lodge!

    This was one of my first large-scale MOCs, that came before the Orient Express Thriller or Winterfield Academy were even conceived! (back in 2014) I had watched the miniseries for "The Shining", and I've always been enamored with National Park lodges. So, the product was The Glacier Falls Lodge, the official lodge for Brickler Mountain National Park! A perfect getaway destination/luxury hotel catering to any minifig's vacation needs! This MOC went through at least six different iterations, before finally being pared down to a (very) downsized version fit for LEGO Ideas. At its prime, though, the Lodge contained an enormous lobby, full dining room and kitchen, and several guest rooms upstairs, with two bathrooms per floor (kind of in the style of Chico Hot Springs in Montana). The first iteration was built in 2014, during that summer we had a major fire that caused us to evacuate. This hotel was thrown in a box and taken with us in a car at night fleeing to Seattle. Later, when the fire season was over and we returned, the hotel sat on the desk for several months without being worked on. The Second Iteration had a change to the tower, it was more octagonal and separated from the roof. And I used the Town Hall Skylights for the Lobby. The Third Iteration sadly has no pictures, as my computer had crashed and we lost them. But it was pretty ugly. I had the idea to try and make octagonal towers on either side of the main doors, with the idea not turning out very well. That iteration was fragile, and fell apart easily. The Fourth Iteration was a HUGE model, with an upgraded, fancier porch and a sign out front! This was also when I made it into more of a Victorian style hotel, with a large wrap around porch, and the two towers on either side. These were half-octagonal towers, which made it a lot easier to stay together. (I had actually figured out how to build them, and gotten the pieces for it). The roof was a major challenge, but we made it work! This iteration also had an enormous, well thought out and beautifully built dining room, as well as a large kitchen with three to four walk in freezers! The Fifth Iteration was downsized in terms of length to make it fit through the door, lol! The basic hotel structure remained the same, however, with the exception of a large rearranging of the rooms inside. This was the first project that I submitted to LEGO Ideas, before having to downsize it again for it to be accepted. This was by far the best iteration of the six, and the only one we have interior pictures of. 5th Iteration furniture and Grand Fireplace 5th Iteration First Floor Porch Detail Lobby Facing the Dining Room Lobby picture 2 Piano Music Room Lobby Picture 3 The cool part was that the interior walls of the 5th Iteration were removable! 1st/2nd floors This was also the first iteration to have major interior decorating and fancy chandeliers! The 6th and Final Iteration of this MOC kept most of the basic structure, subtracting much of the width, in order to make the 3000 piece LEGO Ideas limit. This unfortunately was at the cost of sacrificing the entirety of the interior minus several pieces of furniture. This iteration currently, sadly does not exist anymore. It was torn down and the pieces used for Winterfield Academy (pictured below) However the 6th Iteration is still up on LEGO Ideas right now, and currently has 2036 Supporters! If you would like to give your support as well, I'll include the link here. We would really appreciate any support given! :) https://ideas.lego.com/projects/66655f37-9622-4836-a2cb-797e916f4e2b Anyways, that's the whole story on the MOC! This was by far (not counting my disastrous attempt at a county courthouse when I was 15) my first successful MOC that I thought looked relatively decent! Please tell me what you think, anything you like about it, etc., in your replies! I'll finish with a couple shots from last December and our promotional Winter Photoshoot! :) Thanks for reading! :)
