    Making Eurobricks More Active

    Hi everyone, I actually have been considering to create this topic for two-three months but after noticing that we didn't have the Expand the Winter Village Contest VIII yesterday (I wasn't aware of that before), I thought it was time to create this topic. Without further ado, let me jump into it. I see that the level of activity on EB is lower than it was before. For example, the number of active members seemed to be higher; the interaction between members and also between staff and members looked more intense, more amusing and interesting discussions were going on, and people were having more fun (such as on titles). If I'm wrong and if EB is a forum that is still active as it used to be, I believe, in any case, it deserves to grow - with even more AFOLs (I do understand that every AFOL may not want/don't have time to interact but they can come only to show their MOCs). So I feel it's just the right time to take action. So, does anyone else feel the way I do and does anyone has any suggestions? Staff, I know this may a sensitive subject and you may not be ok with regular members interlope and I absolutely understand that. I just would like to help in anyway I (and other members) can, I hope you'll not be offended. I really think all the forum needs to stand together. Many thanks to all, the staff and members, for your attention, consideration and support. (@Jipay, @Bonaparte, @Hinckley, @Siegfried, @Shadows, @Rick, @Jim, @Bob De Quatre, @WhiteFang, @Fugazi, @Captain Nemo, @Clone OPatra, @CorneliusMurdock, @Brickdoctor, @Stash2Sixx, @Ecclesiastes, @ZCerberus, @Peppermint_M, @Mister Phes, @Phred, @Pandora, @JopieK, @Milan, @VBBN, @Rufus, @LuxorV, @Superkalle, @Dragonator and @CopMike) My apologies for shout-outs to each of you but I just want to draw your attention. Sincerely, LegoModularFan

Ok the themes are: Galidor Scala Belville Galidor McDs polybag Znap Dora (yes that is an actual licensed theme) Jack Stone Ben 10 These are the theme choices and I will get back to you on them.
  3. Today I present to you all my thoughts on 75173 Luke's Landspeeder! Photos are from brickset.com. Remakes, remakes, remakes. This is a remake of the 2014 Mos Eisley Cantina's Landspeeder, and they look really similar, minus some minor aesthetic changes. The newer one is on the left and the older one is on the right. Perhaps only the addition of macaroni tiles and dark red astromech heads are the differences visible at first glance. You get 4 minifigures: Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan "Ben" Kenobi, C-3PO, and a Tusken Raider. These have all appeared before. Oh, more remakes! Luke previously came in the Death Star, Obi-Wan in the Mos Eisley Cantina and the Death Star, C-3PO in the Droid Escape Pod and the Death Star, and the Tusken Raider in the Skyhopper. Luke looks good, getting the balance between simple and detailed just right, in my opinion. Ben is mediocre. His hair is rather plain and the leg printing is pretty bad. C-3PO is a good minifigure, but really needs dual-moulding for his right leg. The Tusken Raider is a good minifigure as always, but the head might be just a little oversized. Here is the landspeeder. All hail the glorious macaroni tiles on the front! The engines look good with the addition of the dark red droid heads too. Engine detailing relies on stickers wrapped all around. I like the tubes on the front, but that is an old technique. There is seating for two plus space for Threepio at the back near the central engine, which can be lifted up to reveal a hidden storage area. All in all, I think this is a good-looking set, but it largely rides on the success of the previous Landspeeder. This does have minor aesthetic changes which do help it to look better, but remaking a speeder in just 3 years and not changing much isn't that great. If they couldn't find much to improve, they should've waited a couple more years before rereleasing it. Also, at 149 pieces, the value is worse than other $24.99 sets. Verdict? Get it if you don't have the 2014 Landspeeder AND if it is on discount. I probably won't be getting this, considering I'm going to get 75159.
  4. 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!

    Thoughts about 75169 Duel on Naboo

    Hello everyone! Today I will be sharing my thoughts on 75169 Duel on Naboo Photos are from brickset.com. I have yet to purchase this but I am sure that I will. Here is the box… Let's begin with the minifigures, arguably the main draw of the set… Qui-Gon Jinn is my favorite minifigure in this set. I do not have him yet, so he is good to have. The lack of a cape is excusable in my opinion as none of the characters in this scene were wearing their capes at the duel near the reactor shaft. I like the grey highlights on Qui-Gon's beard and his alternate face. The only complaints I have are that some of the printing isn't the best (the torso part which shows Qui-Gon's overly tanned skin and the leg printing). Obi-Wan Kenobi is my second-favorite minifigure in this set. I also do not have a Padawan Obi-Wan, so this is welcome. I stand by the fact that LEGO should make a new hairpiece for Padawans, as Obi-Wan's hairpiece in this set is grossly inaccurate. I do like his face and robe printing, however, but the same skin tan problem is present here. Darth Maul is definitely my least favorite minifigure in the set. His front torso, back torso, and leg printing are all excellent, and I like the Zabrak horn headpiece, but his face is awful. I know they were going for a grimace, but it ends up looking like a crazy Joker-like maniacal grin. On to the main build next… Does look like quite a mess, doesn't it? I wouldn't want this set if not for the awesome minifigures. Here, the play features are all visible, the Technic beam for the laser gate, the plasma purification chamber, and the reactor shaft with the catapult's lever jutting out. Laser Gate Function… Push the axle in, door opens. Pull the axle out, door closes. Simple enough. However, the laser gate is really inaccurate in my opinion and a drop-down, solid brick-built trans red panel would look better. Despite this, the play feature definitely works well. Here is the plasma purification chamber. It is really tiny compared to the humongous columns present in the scene. The clear piece can open and the plasma can be removed, however, it is evidently not too easy as the cockpit bubble cannot be opened too much. There is also a golden grille piece next to it. I personally feel the pink and the gold clutter up the appearance and color scheme of the set, though others may beg to differ. See? THOSE are the purification chambers. The LEGO one looks really tiny in comparison. There is a clear 6x6 radar dish piece to simulate a hole, but flicking the lever enables Obi-Wan to jump up… or at least it should. Check out JANGBRiCKS' attempt at it (though Maul's lightsaber did block the way for Obi-Wan to jump out in his review): The price… … is $24.99, which provides good value for just over 200 pieces. Verdict: So, do I like this set? Yes. I already said I want to get it. But why do I like this set? It is solely because of the figures. The build, whilst okay, isn't really all that great, and looks kind of messy to me. Therefore, in my opinion, you should get this if you want the minifigures. If you don't want the figures, I think this deserves a pass. But what do you guys think? Let me know in a reply

    Lego Technic McLaren P1 MOC

    Hello All This topic is purposed to get thoughts and feedback, on my first fully motorized moc. Originally built to celebrate 1 year since I bought my first technic set. Here is a link to the video https://www.youtube....h?v=g2Zh_J4vwsQ if you like what you see please subscribe and like the video. I'm currently building an MKII version which will be a vast improvement, and instructions will be available for free, though I might limit the amount of people who can view the instructions. It will feature a motorized 4 speed gearbox, the famous p1 spoiler, mclaren style butterfly doors, a working v8 and huge turning circle. It will also have a re-worked and more sleeker body shape than the first version, thus making it more realistic. Unfortunately, I don't have any photos of the MKII chassis, but I will be uploading some soon. I will be updating this discussion with progress of the MKII version soon. Here are some photos of the MKI (original version)
