  1. Best And Worst Of 2017

    Hello eurobricks! I have seen this done in the past here and I thought it would be a great idea to do it again for 2017 now that The Joker's Manor is starting to be released. Basically post your favorite theme, minifigure, and set from this year. Then post you least favorite theme, minifigure, and set. If you want you can put your most anticipated set, theme or whatever for 2018. For an example here is my list. Best Theme: The Lego Ninjago Movie, Honorable Mentions: The Lego Batman Movie, Lego Ideas Best Minifigure/bigfig: Gladiator Hulk, Honorable Mention: Two-Face Best Set: Ninjago City, Honorable Mentions: Assembly Square, Knighton Castle, Destiny's Bounty, Old Fishing Store, The Joker's Manor, Arkham Asylum, Carousel, Resistance Bomber, NASA Apollo Saturn V Worst Theme: Minecraft Worst Minifigure: Snoke Worst Set: The Ocean Monument Most Anticipated 2018: Harry Potter sets, Honorable Mentions: Avengers: Infinity War sets, Modular Building, Nexo Knight's, D2C Fairground set 2017 was a great year for Lego and I hope 2018 is even better.
  2. I know I normally post stuff on the forums about Lego Technic, but I also enjoy building Lego MineCraft sets as well and connecting them together. Today, I looked at my The First Night set and noticed something very odd. I got the set on Christmas Eve 2015, and I never noticed this problem the entire time I had it. This is Lego's official picture for the set. Focus on the green 2x2 plate with knob above the brown 2x2 brick with the rose on the right of the pig. When you build the set, the instructions show that there is no green plate below the rose. I don't think there is even a spare piece for it. I checked the internet and I believe nobody ever noticed this before. I'm perfectly fine with it though, since everyone occasionally makes mistakes. What do you think? Has anyone here saw this mistake before?
  3. Sooo- since we have a page for the CMF ideas here: I decided to start a Topic of ideas of new sets. Because nobody has read them on the CMF page. I have got ideas for eight sets: 1. Sunken Ship Scare An underwater themed set, would be about 10$ and would include and exclusive variant of Shaggy in diver suit, Scooby Doo (standing version) and the Ghost of Captain Cutler, a small build of a sunken ship with a hidden treasure in it and a hidden net shoote. 2. Big Beach Chase A beach themed set with a small boat dock and a wooden boat, it would be about 20$ and it would include Daphne and Fred in swimsuit variants, Scooby Doo (Sitting version) with sunglasses print on his eyes, the Witch Doctor and the Man-Crab. 3. Mine Escape A cave with a vagon rack and gold hidden behind walls with exploding play feature, it would be 20$ and it includes Velma in archeologist outfit, Shaggy with red shirt and blue pants, Scooby Doo (sitting version), Miner Forty Niner, Ghost Clown and a brick built Stone Creature. 4. The Mystery Race Car A race car in the colours of the Mystery Machine, it is 30$ and includes Shaggy with ketchup and mustard stains on face and shirt, Scooby (standing version), Daphne in racer outfit, Creeper, The Phantom Racer and a small spooky car build for the Phantom Racer. 5. Crystal Cove Creeps A 35$ set, it includes The Enigma Machine from SD Mystery Incorporated and a brick built Evil Entity, minifigures are Scooby (standing), Fred in What's New Scooby Doo outfit, Cassidy Williams,Judy Reeves,Brad Chiles, Obliteratrix,Freak of Crystal Cove and Slime Monster. 6. The Snow Ghost Attack A 60$ set, includes a snowy mountain with a hidden lair underneath, a radio antenne and a snow scooter for Mystery Inc, included are Shaggy, Velma, Scooby (standing) in winter outfits, Snow Ghost, 10,000 volt ghost and a Skeleton Man. 7.Treehouse Headquarters A large tree with a blue house on top, the bottom level of the tree has a garage, the next level is Velma's lab, the next is a kitchen and a living room is in the house. It is about 80$ and includes Scooby (standing),Velma,Daphne in Cyber Chase outfit,Fred, Shaggy, Baba Yaga with her broom and Red Herring, it also includes a smaller version of the Mystery Machine. 8. Redbeard's Spooky Ship Sail A 90$ set, it is a large brown ship with some glow in the dark pieces, so it would look more ghostly, it also includes a submarine for the Mystery Inc. gang, it includes Velma,Fred and Daphne in diver suits, Scooby (standing version), Shaggy, Redbeard's Ghost, Female Zombie Pirate, three skeleton pirates and the Tar Monster. We would get 20 new villains...OMG...one can dream.... Leave your thoughts below and read the CMF forum,if you haven't yet :)
  4. Thanks guys! It was a nice game, not many partecipants, but that's it! Ahrrrrrr!
  5. What is your favourite Lego Star Wars set ever? My Honourable mentions are: Lego Star Wars At St 7657 Lego Star Wars Imperial Assualt Hovertank 75152 My Favourite Lego Star Wars set is... Lego Star Wars First Order Transporter. This to me is an awesome set with great minifigs such as Captain Phasma, First Order normal troopers and Flame Troopers as well as 2 cool rebels. The build was fun and enjoyable with a nice colour scheme and provides as an amazing addiyion to any First Order army! What's yours? \ (•◡•) /
  6. Indiana Jones River Chase Set

  7. 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
  8. I managed to get the universal set 8062 (including suitcase) a while ago, in OK condition for a reasonable prize. I never used it, until recently. The last couple of weeks, my soon 6 year old son and I have been busy building the models, modding them, and creating MOCs, with parts only from this set. Fantastic set, and a lot of fun! Myself, I would have absolutely loved this set as a kid! There are a lot of nice parts, and lot of possibilities, yet limitations. I think this combination is the key to the fun, because it challenges our creativity (I guess this is valid for Lego in general...). This set directs the focus more on function than looks. Even I prefer studless construction, I have to admit it's great fun to go back in time with this set. This made me think, perhaps it is a market out there for universal sets. Or is it only me? And my son? In my mind these kind of sets would be a perfect entry to Technic. I am sure TLG have their reasons for their strategies, but I hope we some day will see the return of the universal sets. Meanwhile, why not make a competition here on EB, where the challenge is to create the best universal set? The entry would have to be a universal set inventory and instructions for different models. Perhaps different classes; basic, pneumatic, PF, etc. What do you think?
  9. I was a designer, and one night I had a dream that I was in the middle of a lot of colorful balloons, and there was a big fish too . The second day I got up and did the moc. At the beginning i though it is so dull just to build a complete fish, and then i am inspired by the chinken leg at lunch, the shape of the bone, is a good idea. In order to make the set a little more colorful, i use a lot of different colors of circular pieces. In my contry, fish is a kind of animal can bring good luck to people in the new year. If you have fish at home, you will have a lot of money in the future. So i really hope this set can bring good luck to everyone who put it at home. Thanks. And i send this moc to the lego ideas, please support me if you like this set or orther moc of mine. The support linke is as follow: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/175198
  10. [MOC] Ninja's Hide-out

    This MOC is a rebuild of the Ninja’s Hide-out set, 6045, from the Ninja theme of 1998. I’ve added some details and made the MOC more look like a cave. Original set: Picturs of my rebuilded version: 01_Ninjas_Hide-out by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 02_Ninjas_Hide-out by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr I’ve added the same playability of the original set, a working trap. 06_Trap by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr I’ve redesigned the hangglider. 05_Hangglider by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr More pictures at Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mathijslegofan/albums/72157679041850800 Hope you like it :)
  11. Hello guys,I found this picture on the internet. I wanted to ask: is it real? I would be delighted if a Lego Batman set was released, which does not directly contain heroes. I really like the design of the policecar. Can you help me? When will it be released? How much will it cost?Thank you. Leaked Set Picture
  12. Hello everyone! Just sharing my thoughts on the Rogue One sets from 2016. Just a note to say I don't have any of the Rogue One sets from 2016 at the time of writing. 75152: Imperial Assault Hovertank Price in my region: $69.99 This set looks pretty good to me. The spring-loaded shooters are really well integrated into the build. Chirrut Imwe, currently exclusive to this set, is a great figure to have. The Hovertank Pilots are good too, I like the sand highlights. Unfortunately, the ship does seem a too low down, plus it lacks one crate. Aside from the crate, it just looks like a flat grey build. 75153 AT-ST Price in my region: $99.99 Sorry, the images are kinda blurry. I like this set too. It's likely the best version of the AT-ST to date, albeit slightly a little too tall. Well-integrated spring-loaded shooters seem to quickly become a staple in 2016's Rogue One sets. I love that Baze Malbus figure! It's really detailed, the only complain I have is his hair is too short, but it was arguably limited by his backpack. The only main complaint I have about the set is that it's a little too small for $99.99. 3 bags only? Even the Hovertank has 4. 75154 TIE Striker Price in my region: $129.99 I take back what I said about "Well-integrated spring-loaded shooters." They really seem stuck on on this one. However, I really like the rest of the ship. The folding wing play feature looks smooth and tight, and the cockpit seems better than the one in the First Order TIE Fighter. I feel like the back is a bit of a waste of space, as they should have allowed space for another minifigure. On the other hand, the round shape of the TIE Striker is really well captured. I love it! 75155 U-wing Price in my region: $149.99 This image -------^ is of Jyn with her poncho, the next one is without the poncho. The minifigures in this set are good. You get two named main characters in currently exclusive garb. Also, you get a named minor character (albeit not named on the box). Bistan looks good too, plus the U-wing's pilot. It is noteworthy, however, that Jyn and Cassian are dressed wrongly, as both are wearing thick woolly clothes that they wore on Eadu, while the presence of the Corporal Eskro Casrich and Bistan indicate this is meant to be from the Battle of Scarif. Also, Jyn and Cassian did not arrive on Scarif in a U-wing, much less the one with Bistan. But I digress. The build looks marvellous. We have more well-integrated spring-loaded shooters, activated using blue pieces on the front. I like it when the missiles are near cannons (to simulate cannons firing) and that is true of this set. I'm not too sure what I feel about the cockpit-opening mechanism, but without it it may be hard to open the cockpit, which unfortunately does not seat two. The storage at the back does feel kinda tacked on, but the troop carrier section looks good, and even has guns which fold out. However, the guns which fold out seem inaccurate to me, as Bistan fired the guns in a U-wing through a window, not by opening a door and folding a gun out. This, though, seems like a worthy compromise in my opinion, as a troop disembarkation with covering fire play feature works. I really love this set! 75156 Krennic's Imperial Shuttle Price in my region: $169.99 Hooray for sleek black ships! I love shiny black Star Wars stuff (my love for Darth Vader is not without reason) and Krennic's Shuttle looks really good. Currently, all the minifigures are exclusive, and they are Director Orson Krennic, Bodhi Rook, Pao, K-2SO, and two Death Troopers. The spring-loaded shooters are not completely integrated, but are hidden under the wings and look okay. Krennic's seat in the cockpit does make his cape a little squashed and thus make him look slightly uncomfortable. There are also four seats in the shuttle, two of which can be used by the Death Troopers. The panels fold open, but the interior is ugly with a lot of Technic pieces. However, when folded up, the shuttle looks great, especially with the wings in flight mode. I absolutely adore this set! To me, the higher the prices, the better the sets in the wave are. However, all of the sets are good to a certain extent for their price tags! Now, it's time for me to go buy these :) Let me know your thoughts about the sets in replies!
  13. Hello everyone, I have many old sets which are using this differential http://rebrickable.com/parts/6573 and as you can see, you can easily create differential lock using part http://rebrickable.com/parts/6539. But I was wondering - is there any official set which actually uses this parts combination?
  14. Today I bring to you another of my comparisons: 7667 Imperial Dropship VS 75165 Imperial Trooper Battle Pack! 7667 Description: 75165 Description: Minifigures 7667: 75165: 75165 Imperial Trooper Battle Pack has 2 Death Troopers and 2 Stormtroopers; 7667 Imperial Dropship has 1 Shadow Stormtrooper and 3 Stormtroopers. 75165's minifigures are definitely more detailed than 7667's ones, but hey, it did come out 9 years after 7667. I personally prefer 75165's minifigures because I prefer Death Troopers over a Shadow Stormtrooper, but this may vary due to personal preference. As both have good minifigures for their time, I call it a tie (no pun intended ). Points: 7667: 0.5 points. 75165: 0.5 points. Looks I favour 75165 over 7667 as it has the more classic and accurate grey color, compared to 7667's mess of black, light grey, and blue. Also, 7667's cockpit is hideous and unfinished. Points: 7667: 0 points. 75165: 1 point. Playability 7667 has a very nice Troop Deploying function, but its other features are significantly lacking. The cockpit is terribly placed and sometimes breaks off when attempted to be opened. Also, its weapons storage is nowhere near as sophisticated as 75165. Also, 75165 has posable legs, rotating and firing cannons, and stud shooters, which, despite being maligned by many, do add playability to the set. Thus, 75165 wins in playability too. Points: 7667: 0 points. 75165: 1 point. Value 7667 retailed in 2008 at $9.99 with 81 pieces, so its value is 12.3 cents per piece. 75165 retails this year (2017) at $12.99 with 112 pieces, so its value is 11.6 cents per piece. Yet again, 75165 wins. Points: 7667: 0 points 75165: 1 point Total scores: 7667: 0.5 points 75165: 3.5 points 75165 wins against 7667. But which do you prefer?
  15. Today I will be comparing 75003 A-wing Starfighter (2013 version) with 75175 A-wing Starfighter (2017 version). First, here are the descriptions. 75003: 75715: I will be comparing them in aspect by aspect. Playability: 75003: 4x Flick-fire missiles, Opening cockpit, 1x landing gear 75175: 2x Spring-loaded shooters, 2x rotating cannons, Opening cockpit, 3x Landing gear, Rebel Maintenance service cart with detachable accessories and ladder. While 75003 does have firing weapons and basic ship equipment (like opening cockpits and landing gear), 75175 definitely has much more, including well-integrated spring-loaded shooters. Winner: 75175 Accuracy: 75175 is definitely more accurate than 75003 (one of the pros of newer sets), as the rear flaps are definitely thinner, using a new molded piece, as opposed to 75003's brick built ones. Also, 75175's engines are more accurate when compared to 75003's. The only portion that 75003 is more accurate than 75175 is that the greebling in between the engines is more realistic to the movie than 75175, as 75003's greebling is completely grey, while 75175 has some yellow highlights. Winner: 75175 Value Many have criticized 75175 for being similar in size to 75003, yet costing £20 more. However, believe it or not, closer inspection yields the opposite. 75175 has 358 pieces and costs £44.99, amounting to 12.6 cents per piece. 75003 has 177 pieces and costs £24.99, amounting to 14.1 cents per piece. However, due to the fact that the size of the ships are so similar, and 75175 only comes with a small rebel maintenance cart to try to justify the value, I consider 75003 the winner in this aspect. Winner: 75003 Minifigures 75003 has an A-wing pilot dressed in dark green, Han Solo who only otherwise appears in Ewok Village, and Admiral Ackbar who only appears otherwise in 2009's Home One. 75175 has an A-wing pilot dressed in normal green, Lando Calrissian who is exclusive, and a generic Rebel Technician who is also exclusive. While 75175 has all-exclusive minifigures and a new Lando Calrissian, 75003 has two named characters (Han and Ackbar) as opposed to 75175's one (Lando) and thus, 75003 takes the cake. Winner: 75003 Displayability: Overall, 75175 has better displayability than 75003. This is due to the fact that it is more accurate, and the shooters are better integrated in 75175 (under the front portion) than in 75003 (used instead of guns). Also, the little rebel maintenance cart helps to finish off a little display scene. Winner: 75175 Time to tally scores! Playability: 75175 Accuracy: 75175 Value: 75003 Minifigures: 75003 Displayability: 75175 Overall winner: 75175 Hope you enjoyed this comparison! VaderFan2187
  16. Video Review: Volcano Starter Set

    picked this up in a recent haul. Surprisingly good set for the price.
  17. Hi everyone, here is my review of the Lego Adventure Time Ideas set. It is scheduled for release early 2017, I was lucky enough to get it early. I've had it for about a week or so, finally uploaded the review now. Set number 21308, ages 9+, 496pcs, Let me know what you guys think of the set. Overall if you are into Adventure Time, I think you will like it. It displays very nicely. The downside would be the price - it is a licensed theme, as well as an "Ideas" set, which definitely brings the price up. Enjoy!
  18. @Delta.Customs on Instagram, said that there were two SpiderMan Homecoming sets he knew. The sets were described as so: Set #1: A Bank robbery, Spidey and two robbers, The robbers had Avengers in their names. Set #2: Has a car, Includes Spidey, Vulture with brick built wings, Shocker, and Iron Man. If you saw the trailer, this should all now sound familiar. Remember that @Delta.Customs' post was done two weeks ago. One scene from the trailer showed some men in Avengers masks robbing a bank, which adds up well to set one. We didn't see a specific set two scene in the trailer, but it's most likely a final battle anyway. We did see Vulture, with large wings, as well as a man many suspect to be the Shocker. We also saw Spidey swinging around by Iron Man. So in general, I'm pretty sure this guy's info is reliable. If you want to see an article, as well as the post, use this link. http://spidermannews.com/2016/11/30/rumor-lego-spider-man-homecoming-sets-revealed/ Tell me what you think? Merry Christmas!
  19. Well, I've come back to Technic, but I need to get a set toadd some good pieces. Criteria: I can only spend up to $200 Canadian Dollar$ It need some nice wheels I don't mind buying from brucklink/Amazon/eBay, etc I'm wanting pnuematics, LAs, differential(s), frames, PF isn't required. Thanks for your future suggestions!
  20. 42057 Replica!

    42057 replica! The smallest set of the 1h2017 line. Pictures were recently released and I decided to make a replica of set 42057, the smallest of the line. Here is the video with my review: Feel free to build your own! Instructions and part list towards the end of the video. Thank you! BrickbyBrick
  21. I am trying to help a family member who can't understand English and his not really good with computers. He made a project on LEGO Ideas and is trying to get suggestions on his brick set. He also asked me how do people get more visibility on projects that are not related to any licensed property. Anybody that can takes a looks, give recommendations and suggestions about the set or his question would be really appreciated. At the same time, if you like the project it would be really nice of you to support it. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/145024 Thank you!
  22. Built for the 2016 MOCAthalon, the category this time was “Classic Update.” I chose to update the Black Falcon Fortress #6074. The original featured a working drawbridge and hinging walls to allow for multiple building layouts. I kept both those features, and added a dual catapult, jail with break-away wall, great hall with fireplace and table, and a stables with working gate. There are 6 minifigs included: 4 Black Falcons, and 2 Crusaders, plus there are two horses, some extra weapons, and a treasure chest. There are 2 ladders to allow minifigs to reach the walls, and they can fold up out of the way so you can reach into the interior. See more pictures on brickbuilt Thanks for looking, I hope you enjoyed this remake of a classic set. I admit to rigorously play testing this model
  23. Hi all! I've just submitted a set idea to Lego ideas, but reached a problem. Here's an image of the set idea below; as of writing this the idea is still awaiting approval so is not on the Lego Ideas website: While i've put a lot into making the set look nice and giving it playability, there is one problem that I still feel like i should tackle to make this a solid idea for a set. Most/all train sets produced by Lego are supplied with the ability to have Power Functions. As this is a small saddle tank engine, there is no room for a motor. The passenger carriage does have space that could accommodate a power functions battery and receiver, but that would mean that the engine and coach would have to be permanently attached. Lego won't make alternative molds for ideas sets, so suggesting an alternative motor design would not be possible. Does anyone have any ideas? would be a great help! Many thanks, Isaac.
  24. Working Signal Box MOC

    Hi all! This is a small idea that I had quite recently as an item that could be found in a set that added playability to a Lego train set. It's less for show displays and more for a child's little Lego City oval of track in their room. There's no electricity, just a mechanism that'll hopefully make it feel like the operator is a signalman! It's not based on any particular signal box, but the signal is very clearly an old British design. The box is cut in half to reveal the interior of the box and to provide access to the lever of the mechanism: It's a very simple set-up, with the mechanism being the most complicated aspect to it. Here's a (VERY) quick diagram of the mechanism: I'd love to hear any comments or suggestions to improve this! I might put it forward to Lego Ideas in the near future, maybe with a little train to go with it! Many thanks, Isaac
  25. Design Contest Proposition

    Hi all, I've been doing a bit of brainstorming about what to do concerning the current state of affairs for trains on Lego Ideas, and while I am currently working on a couple different solutions of my own, I finally landed on an idea that would include all of you as well. A bit of friendly competition, all towards a common goal: a better/more appealing train set offering for Lego fans. So, I am proposing we start a set design contest here on Eurobricks!! (maybe even get it up on the front page?) The Parameters: -A complete train set, not a standalone car, engine, or track-side structure. Generally an engine, 2-3 rolling stock, and one structure. -A 1000 parts count maximum, which must include necessary PF elements and at least 20 pieces of track (standard oval). -A self-contained engine, meaning no rolling stock can carry necessary PF elements. -At least 2-3 "play features", not including the operation of the train itself. -At least one alternate build. (Alternate models do not have to meet the same requirements as the primary model) -Must use parts currently in production, however new/different colors of said parts can be used. Some Suggestions: -Come up with a few stories about what the minifigs included in the set could and would be doing. -Try to avoid using generic flat cars and wimpy helicopters. -Use 1-2 rare/unique colors that haven't appeared in a train set yet, like azure, purple, dark red, etc. -Try not to make your train too regionally specific by using road names such as GWR, LNER, UP, CN, etc. Color schemes may be mimicked though. -Develop a play feature that hasn't been used in a train set before. -Try to have each element of the set be as interesting on its own as it is with the rest of the set. I'm not sure how much time should be given to a contest like this, but I'd reckon about 30-90 days would be about right? Then, about 2-4 weeks for voting? The top 3-5 projects (depending on the amount of participants) could then be refined a bit before submitting to Lego Ideas. If this contest receives frontpage support, maybe some prizes could be awarded to the top finalists...? Let me know your thoughts on my proposition, and also who I need to contact to make this happen! Thanks for your time, ~M_Slug~
