  1. Past hour
  2. Hmmmm, that might be the answer to getting more love from TLG in regards to trains - Lego needs a strong competitor in the model train market and just maybe we will get more choices!
  3. Thank you very much for your comment ;) Glad you like this ;) Tonight, I packed all the project and take the plane tomorow during the night for Billund... Can't wait to see the Legohouse and meet some of the famous buider in the world and look at their creation for real ! 6th teaser... this is a bright light orange tree... Masterpiece gallery Teaser 06 : Blotree by Pistash 7th and last teaser this one is called "Help me"... Monster will need your help... Enjoy ! Masterpiece gallery Teaser 07 : Help me by Pistash Global picture coming next week, just after Legohouse Afol opening ;)

  5. Mine has finally made it into the country and past customs, after being one of the early successful online purchases... A good sign..
  6. I don't believe that's the case. The troika suit is quite unknown and was also based on the movie batsuits. It makes more sense for Lego to reference the very famous movie suit than an obscure troika suit that was used for a year in comics. Lego just used the original Anton Furst Batman '89 promotional symbol instead of opting for the symbol used on screen. Also the Kenner 89' Batfigure is very a like the black and gold minifigure.
  7. [TC12] The Toaster

    Looks cool, reminds me of Miss Fritter from Cars3 movie...
  8. [WIP] Supercar chassis with 3 steering modes

    Interesting idea, but I need to ask the obvious... What happened to your TC12 entry? Is this the start of it, or have you decided not to enter?
  9. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors and Discussion

    I agree absolutely, it even had a handful of nice pieces, like those mushrooms, some extra blue fire and leaf parts--basic, but still nice to have.
  10. Today
  11. I snagged a TIE Striker for almost 50% off, still not one of my favourites, but having built it, it's not too bad. Especially for this price.

  14. You're welcome. Zetros development is continuing what is nice, despite it is out of scale for my models.
  15. It is, now we know that @agrof bought ocean explorer for parts
  16. Campaign 4- FIghting for the City 9/20- 10/29

    Great campaign!! Just one question: The city will be one certain city in Studica F4, or more than one cities in Studica F4, or any city anywhere (probably very near to borders) ?

    Love this! Great Great Work! Goodluck with the contest! Greetings
  18. The point I was making, just like the original economics paper, is that as a buyer you often don't know what you're getting. This isn't flawed logic. Even if you have a desire to buy the real stuff, how many times have you bought used collections of what was advertised as "lego" only to find quantities of knockoff stuff in the contents. If you're talking about depreciation, as soon as you get a market loaded with sellers pushing stuff as "lego" regardless of what it actually is, then the value of everything (even the real stuff) goes down when buyers can't really be sure of what they're getting, or don't even care what they're getting and buy on price alone. After a while, people can't move their genuine stuff for realistic money, so they give up and stop trying to sell it. That's the theory anyway. In practice, some buyers and sellers are not completely ignorant so you maintain some market for genuine stuff, but ultimately the value of the good stuff as a whole drops as a result of the crap being sold. If you're only buying for pieces, you have to be concerned you're only getting genuine (otherwise you're paying premium money for junk). As a seller of genuine stuff, you've now got to be concerned about potential buyers who would not have had a choice in the past, looking at knockoff stuff at a third of the price of what you want for the genuine, not knowing or caring about the difference and buying the cheaper one. as an example: An original used 5571. now 21 years old and hard to find even as used. And that's if you'r comfortable buying from ebay in Germany. Hundreds of euro plus shipping, and that's for one without instructions!. 'new' knockoff from china? Delivered for USD80. or an 8258 - current price on bricklink new 500+ USD and second hand 250+ USD. And you'll need to add post, insurance and possible payment and import fees to that as well. You can have a 'new' one delivered from china for two digit dollars. (I found one for USD85 delivered at first search). And in the technic world we're sad because you can't even tell if many of the parts are genuine because even the originals don't have details cast into the parts. Given the advertising even includes the phrase Lego 8258, what do you think the second hand market is going to look like in a few years when the buyers of those knockoff sets start selling them even in competition to the chinese who will probably still be selling the same thing even then! There will be a hundred people like me with a genuine 8258 to sell, 50 buyers, only 2 of whom care about getting a 'real' one. Suddenly, 100 genuine sellers are not competing for 50 buyers. They're competing for 2 buyers because the other 48 all went the knockoff route.
  19. BRICKYWOOD - Day 10

    Voting is open.
  20. Campaign 4- FIghting for the City 9/20- 10/29

    LET'S GET IT ON!!!!!!!!!!
  21. [MOC] I find your lack of faith disturbing!

    ah yes. thank you
  22. A factor that could depreciate the value of recent Technic sets is a change of Power Functions. Suddenly all recent sets, will look old. A bit similar to the studded/studless period. In particular flagship sets and limited editions keep their value and can increase to crazy prices when still sealed. I have for instance decided to give up on obtaining the 41999 because it has just become too expensive for what you get. When you find an extreme good offer of a new set, it could be interesting to buy this set and resell it later. This way you finance other Lego Technic purchases.
  23. The Metroliner rebuild

    Good job OP - looks pretty accurate to me :) This set is easily my favourite 9v train - an all time classic. I was lucky enough to finally pick one up a couple of months ago and I'm currently gathering parts for 2 extra "standard" carriages for it. I'd love a couple of club cars but they are now just ridiculously expensive.
  24. TOYS R US Files for Bankruptcy

    We will see. Besides they only filed for Chapter 11. They could still be operating for a couple of years before the company completely close up shop.
  25. What's your favorite Star Wars character?

    What? It is not Jar Jar!
  26. MRCA II Adventure

    Ok, since this is where fishing voyages will fall, how would I write up the route for a fishing expedition off the north coast of Oleon? I presume there are ports there and that I don't need to sail up and around the northeastern horn of the continent, but either way there are no zones there to plot distances. I was figuring on some range 0/range 1 boats going offshore and back, nothing fancy.
  27. Star Wars Rebels

    But this has always happened with Star Wars side material. Legends was no better at keeping anything straight with the films and would often have material contradict other material. It is a huge shame that Disney did not stick to avoid these conundrums but it is also hard to make stand alone stories that have the protagonists lose all the way to the end >.>
