    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours & Discussion

    Guilty as charged I think these four are solid choices. Too bad it‘s not the classic version of Supes, but we could still get that one further down the road in order to complete the trinity. The one I‘m looking forward to the most out of the three that haven‘t leaked yet is definitely Bat-mite. I hope he looks like he did in LB3

    DC Superheroes 2019 - Rumours & Discussion

    That's quite disappointing to be honest, as not only has Lego had plenty of opportunities to shoehorn such a variant into any past playset, this figure won't even have dual-molded legs for red boots (since he lacks such). Well, the only way I'd probably be interested in this CMF is if he were Earth Blue rather than traditional Bright Blue. Interesting to hear that you're interested in this part... ...I suppose you have particular designs for it in mind, perhaps for a custom Roman god Mercury CMF? Or maybe an Art Deco automobile hood ornament? It's a bit bulky-looking, but it's just so DECO...

    HIDDEN SIDE - 2019

    So we're actually getting physical ghosts??Huh,color me suprised but I wont get too excited untill I see how they look like. About the sets themeselves the portal and the lighthouse sets sound the most promising.
  7. Thank you very much for your comment, I agree 100% with you. Your models are an inspiration source for me, so I appreciate very much your comments! And yes, I will go on with my own design freedom too, this a game and I'll always have fun. By the way, chromed wheels are on my to do list! Next models... coming soon!

    [MOC] Another perfect day in space

    A Classic Space vignette by yours truly. I had a *lot* of fun making this, for sure - it's my first ever serious display scene, and I'm quite proud of it. What do you think? Check the album for more angles and detail shots, and check my signature for a more general-purpose Classic Space collection. Thanks for looking! ^u^

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    After months of unsuccessfull tries I just tried to finish an order again. This time started again problematic. I couldn't proceed with the cart I had selected this week, something went wrong each time I tried to continue. So I emptied my shopping cart and made a small selection of parts I wanted the most and tried again, just to test. It finally succeeded! Such a fine feeling!

    Your Best Technic Bargains

    After two years without any LEGO purchase, I managed to get the 42083 - Bugatti Chiron for 200 euro. Me happy
  14. I don't think it will have an impact at all. The sets from Rebels sold poorly but that didn't affect the Lego Star Wars brand as a whole. They simply phased the show out from the toy line up and focused their attention on other areas of the Star Wars universe.
  15. Thanks, starting from scratch and ensure each stage works before moving on. Changed the Title to Transfer Crane. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The build continues, Gantry crane idea discarded and instead re-building as a Traversing Crane GBC based more on the Akiyuki design. New build - gear racks along with16T gears eliminated and reversers no longer required. LEGO Straight Rail (3228) used with Rim Narrow Ø18 x 7 and Pin Hole with Shallow Spokes (13971 / 56902) for carriage wheels. Stage 1:- Base support structure built along with travelling carriage for the profile beam Traverse is by Large Lego Chain for moving the profile beam back and forth and arranged to give a short dwell time at each end. Extra support beam added to prevent any parts snagging on the chain. Prolonged testing done to ensure no moving parts snag and working smoothly The mounting of the profile beam is now much more secure. Much more reliable than when using small chain links. Stage 2:- Added track beams for upper trolley along with the traversing carriage base for mounting the lifting frame for the train ball hopper.
  16. While Disney has failed to attract new audiences and lost many old fans, it is not like the fans are gone. Lego can still count on them and would focus even more on classics. ...or the new Star Wars content that is coming and might to better than the ST. Of course nobody will admit it officially, but cancelling Resistance, reviving Clone Wars, and bringing back the Obi Wan-series are clearly course corrections by Disney. With a new wave of Clone Wars (which has a considerable fanbase), the Mandalorian (which has been well received so far, even hyped), and Obi Wan (which fans wanted for years) Star Wars could regain old strength. And even if it does not, OT and PT provide ample fallback for Lego. Just think about all the classic TIEs that have not been released in years (Bomber, Interceptor, Defender). And what if that fails to sell? Lego will just negotiate new, better licensing fees. In fact, I would not be surprised if the current weakness of Star Wars and the repeated failure of Disney to provide accurate information for the development of Lego sets had not led to renegotiations already. But unless Disney is completely unreasonable, Lego Star Wars will stay.

    KV-1/KV-2 Tank

    No, I'm not overly happy with this chassis. Going with the standard PF batbox created plenty of problems.

    KV-1/KV-2 Tank

    Amazing work as always @Sariel! Do you plan on making an IS style turret as well? If memory serves, the IS1/2 simply put a new improved turret on the KV1/2 chassis (with some modifications perhaps)

    stringless three-section boom

    3 section boom, but with lego chains, long long time ago... http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=431191
  21. So yeah, Disney lost a lot of the Star Wars fans after The Last Jedi, and that was reflected with Solo's incredible under performance at both the box office, and with toy sales. And the hype for Rise of Skywalker, which releases this December, is close to non-existent. And the early Box Office predictions from experts are also incredibly low. So I am wandering... If Rise of Skywalker ends up failing or under performing, how would that affect LEGO? Star Wars toy sales are very low at the moment, and that affecting LEGO too isn't excluded. After all, the Solo sets seemed to always be on clearance (from what I have heard). What do you think?
  22. Excerpt from Lt. Markland’s Mission Log: During my research, looking through old imperial warrants I have found a number of interesting personalities. One entry that caught my eye, is of a rather young Balosar wanted for a number of offenses including theft, breaking and entering, reckless driving, speeding, and the list goes on. Evidently she is hiding in plain sight on Coruscant, where she earns her living as a limo-driver for politicians and billionaires. Old habits die hard. I wonder if that is all the work she does now. Sometime earlier on Coruscant... Zula thinking to herself: “Suck it up Zula! Do the research. Get the info. Take the offensive banter… Some night soon you’ll get your payback... At least enjoy the ride in this beut!” Zula Morana’s Crew: Even though Zula was very careful about who she worked with, she rarely worked with the same crew twice. This made the robberies seem very different, and harder to link together. However, a few recurring individuals included the human male, master cat burglar Kawh Nudsoh, the Rodian slicer Bin Gaker, and the Aqualish demolitions expert, Ralto Dussel. Species: Balosar from Balosar (https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Balosar_(species)) As always a closer look and some details from behind the scenes... Let me know what you think... :)

    Should LEGO Star Wars take a break?

    If the remake is better than the previous one, than it's OK. However, sometimes I see sets that are just simplified without much improvement. I like that they produce even better minifigures (except for the new stormtoopers...).

    Should LEGO Star Wars take a break?

    What do you mean? Of course they could stop making Star Wars sets if they wanted to. They have full control over their products.
