  1. Creating an ABC with lego minifigures for my son's nursery and am stuck on "X" and need options for N (I got Nute Gunray) . The best I can come up with is X-Wing Pilot. Am I missing people with either name starting with X or a Species/Race? Examples: A - Ashoka V - Darth Vader W - Wookie

  3. Just wondering if there are more people who collect battle droids? At this point I guess, I whould have around 200 of them. Let me share you, some pic's a year ago. And here as they are right now:
  4. Hi all, perhaps this has been a topic once - since i found none, id just give this a shot and would like to hear some of your opinions and observations on this. TLG is as we know an old and awesome business and has developped rapidly since 2000s. Before that, the progress was fairly slow, yet for its time groundbreaking! It was meant (and still is) a construction toy to play with plastic scale cars (also from other brands) and also had educational sets to learn about gears, techniques etc. Therefore they introduced a number of structural parts to improve the building experience and later on (!) added the big figs and minifigs. Now what i cant help but wonder is if the whole Minifig Focus the last 10 years (Series twice a year, increasing set prices for more SW limited figs etc) has created a gap of parts that should have long made it into sets since 2000 BUT didnt, because their "moulds" are occupied and produced for minifig related stuff mainly? I especially notice the possible part gap in the "small element" fraction of tiles, plates etc. Only recently they released a 1x1 quarter circle tile, an "over the edge" element, smaller wedge plates - mainly with the SC and modular product line. Also new clips for "bar" related stuff was firstly added last year. Those parts are very simple in design and not too hard to "imagine" as a designer to be of great constructional usage. Stil there could be more! Not? Why hasnt there been a 2x3 tile earlier, why are there no 5 stud long tiles and windshields? Why did they discontinue the scala 2x2 with cutout quarter? They had ideas for sure, yet those disappeared, Its simply odd considering their possible value for any set... My Thesis here is that the Minifigs have become such a popular collectors item and economically interesting for TLG, that TLG is less interested in producing more basic elements for construction builders (because a lot of people buy primarly for figs, the "build" itself is "a nice to have option" and works if new parts are made or not) Compare how many new minifig accesories have been made over the last years (and are to be found on LDD) with the amount of tile and plate options up to 4 studs. Its a bit shocking in my opinion, considering LEGO is a construction toy. Take modulex for example - during its time, it was super advanced in slope shaping - where are those slope types in real bricks? we only have one smooth 1x2 slope - with grilles frankly Modulex has more! A trip to legoloand can be eye-opening: FIGS everywhere " create your own" - incredible huge amounts of head designs, many items for them to clutch into their tiny hands - the variety here is like paradise for LEGO fans - just not so for system stackers: most of the stuff we know (and love) from the 90ies or earlier, perhaps in new colours... And if i want to build a highly detailed minifig car using a 1x1 plate with 3 finger on it as a BMW logo to avoid stickering? Nada...hasnt been made despite its possible usefulness in the 90ies, but they made this recently (which is literally the same thing after they abandoned the finger hinges - for whatever reason i will never understand). Again, happened last year! Some clone brands (i know, you are going to kill me for mentioning this^^) are a lot more imaginative when it comes to constructional elements. There is one part that TLG released this year that has been in a similar mould on some Sets from certain brands for quite some time now. When i saw it back in a day i found it only logical to inlcude, therefore i wondered why TLG didnt have it...hence, this write up :) Now one could say "its possible to build around all these issues" - very true - but the same states for minifig accesories, does it not?! I can build a blaster or canon, yet there are 20+ diffrerent gun options avaliable. And dont make me start about swords and staffs...Also printing is getting rarer on bricks, yet super detailed on minfigs, and that aint cheap - so again, the "standard stuff" has to do with stickers. A Speedchampion car without stickers can be qutie a guessing game of who is who, since the bricks are very basic! Yet stickers on a minifig? Blasphemy Actually why not? Its the same material, yet i think the attention is clearly on the Fig industry so its worth spending the resources on. AND that is making us wait longer for new basic elements (probably longer then it should?) Concluding: Figs are nice - i really like to use them - but do we really need so many new minifig accessories over new element bricks? Where is the "building spirit" now - shouldnt limitations make us more imaginative and be educational in some way? - perhaps only when it comes to everything else in LEGO? what do you think?
  5. paints

    what kind of paint+brush works the best to make custom minifigs, I've tried acrylic, but it didn't work so well. Please help.
  6. MOC Wild West Saloon

    hey guys just finished working on my saloon i was wondering if you have any feedback? there are more shots on the ideas page not sure if im allowed to include that? https://ideas.lego.com/projects/ac05796e-ea55-42ee-a8ad-1a40efed34e0
  7. Lego Print Quality

    Hi fellow Eurobrick chaps! Hopefully this is the right place to start the discussion? I did this over on Flickr recently after opening a few sets at the weekend and had a fair few people agree, so I thought I'd ask it over here too! Do you think the quality of print on Lego is slipping a little recently? I haven't noticed it much in the past other than some Captain America shields being pretty light on the white print etc, but I've recently picked up a few bits and seem to find more faults recently than ever. Over the last month or so I've had issues with: IG-88's head, Captain Americas shield, Ms Marvels head and legs, Vultures helmet, Spider-Mans torso and Batgirls torso. I'm sure I'm a little bit picky compared to what a kid might think when he opens up the packet as I'm a collector for display purposes only, but we shouldn't have to put up with bad printing should we? Lego have happily replaced all parts I've had issues with recently, but the last batch were a bit more troublesome, and I had to provide numerous details, receipts etc before they would release them, but they did this pretty quick. Interested to hear from everyone else!
  8. Why Stephanie? Why is Stephanie the most prolific of Non-licensed* Unique minfig/mindolls, with 32?! https://brickset.com/minifigs/name-Stephanie I guess it has to do with the popularity of the theme, right? But come on. My kids and I are not big fans of Stephanie, tbh. When there are more unique versions of Stephanie then there are of Han Solo, something is wrong. I'm just saying. The next most popular non-liscended character is Jay from Nijago. Maybe with the new movie coming out, Jay will surpass Stephanie next year? We'll see... Personally, I'd like see Elves go deeper and bigger then Friends. My 6 year old has migrated from friends to Elves, so I'm biased, but.... :) *licensed character leaders include exactly whom you would expect. Batman, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo. "Clone Trooper" wins, hands down, if you want to count him as one character. :)
  9. Hello folks! I am LadyOfBrick! I recently became interested and fascinated by the world of LEGO when I started dating a LEGO fan. Never thought the LEGO world would be so fun, complex and simply awesome! A couple of months ago I had a custom made Minifig made for my boyfriend's birthday, and ever since, his Minifig has become his travel and adventure buddy. In a couple of days my boyfriend will be embarking on a backpacking trip thru Europe and unfortunately I will not be able to join him. I wanted to send him off with something special, but I thought of an even better idea... send him off and his Minifig on a special Brick scavenger hunt. I need some help, so if you or a fellow Brick fan you might know lives in any of the following European cities, continue reading below for more details on the scavenger hunt and how you can lend me a yellow brick hand! Ljubljana, Vienna, Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam, Bruges, Paris, Bilbao, Santiago de Compostela, Coimbra, Lisbon, Seville, Gibraltar, Malaga, Madrid, Barcelona, Figueres, Lyon, Zurich, Interlaken, Riomaggiore, Florence, Pisa, Rome, Naples, Vicenza, and Venice. If you made it to this point it means you live in one of those cities or know someone who does! YAY! Here is the gist: I want to have strategically placed LEGO base plates (small enough for a Minifig) in photo spots around the specific cities he will be visiting. Of course the spots should be central to tourist spots. For example, in Berlin a good location would be near the Brandenburg Door. The Brick helpers would leave the base plates, snap a photo (perhaps even with your own Minifig), use GPS to upload and send over exact location, and that's pretty much it on your part! Any helpers will be kindly rewarded! I will go into details and to hows, wheres and whens with each individual who is up for helping out on this special mission! Open to suggestions and thoughts! Hope to hear from everyone soon! Thanks!!! LadyofBrick
  10. [BRAINS] Cat D - Zombie Eradicators

    zombie killer squad by Terry Fay, on Flickr Member background: Ivy - Has major trust issues, back at the beginning of the Apocalypse she come home to catch her husband up to no good with their nanny, while downstairs a zombie had eaten their 2 kids. After killing them both she just started wandering the streets, slicing up all zombies she come across. Has never griefed yet for the loss of her children. DO NOT BREAK HER TRUST IF YOU GAIN IT...it wont end well. Franc - The Leader of the group, spent most of his life preparing for this moment. Has a weapon stash too start a small army and enough food stored away to last years. Lost his girlfriend before as she hated his obsession with survival. Has always been abit of a loner but asked the team to join him as he sees them as his family he never had even though he knows they are mainly there just to Survive and not for him. Alec - Living the Dream, just married, beautiful wife, just returned from their honeymoon back to their nice home to find out about the Apocalypse. Alec thought he would run to the shop and grab some supplies, on route he come face to face with his neighbour who had turned. He couldnt bring himself to kill him so just carried on running.. Upon returning home he had found his neighbour had eaten his wife. Now lives with this on his shoulders everyday. Is on the constant hunt for his neighbour for revenge. Struggles with the depression his lack of judgement has caused. Constantly drinking to numb the pain. John James - Car sales man for high end vehicles. loved the fact that when the world had gone to %$£* he could zoom off in the most expensive car and no one could tell him not too...he made it less than a mile before crashing. Saw himself as abit of a Rambo kinda a guy at the start..But once Franc had asked him to join the crew and he met Ivy he instantly became a 'TEAM' player....and has a MASSIVE crush on IVY. Has her back through thick and thin..only reason he's grown a beard is because he overheard her say to Sam he likes her men Grizzly looking. Sam - Was a cleaner at the National History museum and was bullied by the boss. Took great pleasure in slicing him down when he became a Zombie.. Picked up some Armour and weapons from the Knights of the round table section and his favourite Vikings Helmet and set out to get the Greatest Zombie kill possible...as zombieland was his favourite film.
  11. It seemed odd to me that this record has never been featured in the Guinness book of world records, but it looks like that might be about to change. If you think you could be a contender for the record, apply here: http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/431349-largest-collection-of lego® minifigures Personally I've always wanted to learn what size the world's biggest collection has. I seem to recall that there is someone who has around 10,000 figs, albeit not all of them were unique.
  12. Hi! This is exactly what the title says, a topic about purist Star Wars custom minifigs. I know there was a topic like this before, but it hasn't been replied to for a while and I'm not sure if I would be allowed to bump it. This is not restricted to just minifigures, so custom droids etc, can be posted here.

  18. The Bridge Battle display

    Having recently bought the Spider-Man Bridge Battle set, I thought it would be amiss not to display it and make a chaotic diorama out of it. IMG_9275 by J G, on Flickr I'm not much of a MOCer (at least not anymore), so there's not much modification apart from the Sandman's 'sand hands', taken from that awful Sandman/ Rhino set. IMG_9282 by J G, on Flickr I'm glad the bridge comes with a birds nest on top, so I could make this lame joke with the Vulture. IMG_9292 by J G, on Flickr Ben Reilly's having some trouble keeping this taxi out of the water below, though his troubles are far from over. IMG_9285 by J G, on Flickr Whilst Spider-Girl faces off against the Scorpion and Kraven, Deadpool follows in the footsteps of the Great Oily Lord Ainsley Harriott and gives his meat a good old rub. IMG_9280 by J G, on Flickr Here is an under-shot of the entire thing. I had a lot of fun putting this together, and I can't recommend this set enough.

  19. Totally custom. All hand-painted with a tiny brush. Custom stickers too. I realize this isn't purist, but I'm sure you can appreciate the involvement in making these figures.
  20. This is my version of Donald Duck's car in LEGO. It was a challenge to build eventhough it is so small, but of course a fun challenge! I would appreciate if you also had a look at the LEGO Ideas-project here. Some history Donald Duck´s car made its first appearence in the movie "Don Donald" from 1937, and in 1938 it was introduced in the newspaper comics by Al Taliaferro. The design is originally based on an "American Bantam 1938"-car, but has changed slightly over the years and varies from different cartoonists. Its name "The 313" comes from the license plate that has number 313, which also is the day when Donald Duck was born (13th of March). The design is mainly inspired by the original fictiv car "Belchfire Runabout", which you can see in the last photo.
  21. Hi everyone, Recently i stumbled across this topic started by fellow builder Kevin8. It was about building a minifig mini cooper, small and detailed enough to look good with modulars, yet containing 2 Minifigs, possibly next to each other for more realism. Since the classic cooper is a really small car, it has to be 5 wide (scales 1/36 - 1/42). I kinda wanted to try if its possible - and it is, if we trick around a little^^ See for yourselves and if you want, tell me what you think. LDD file attached. Cheers Side note: the roof kinda is unstable , yet it is connected, no floating parts! Also, there is no wigs possible for the figs :( The vehicles height is exactly as high as the fig itself, if you count the stud on top of its head (or add a wig), the fig is taller than the cooper Classic Lego Mini Cooper by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr NS classic mini cooper 2.lxf
  22. This is the one you've been waiting for, and now it's here! The one and only WhiteFang, master of the Collectable Minifigs, brings you his in depth review of one of the most anticipated sets in the series, the very first offering from Disney! Go check it out now!
  23. Interchangable arms?

    I know rock monster arms connect with the same tube system as minifigure arms- what other things can connect to minifigure torsos?
  24. Decided to make a bigfig; it turned into this. The Goblin Bros. Exonia and Ragnarok. Rag is showing off a trophy from a recent raid. Back. Exo built a jetpack. Berzerker showing off his play feature (it's just easier to move his arms with the levers).
