    Toy Story Discussion

    @Modeltrainman @Gorilla94 I guess I like the newer ones because I can fit them in my city better. The older ones were cool and all, but Woody and Jessie were too tall.
  3. Din't think I forgot about you, did yeh? Bogdan's story ain't over yet. So if you'll just hand me another pint... obliged, I'll begin. Well, it musta been about 572 by our reckoning when the Prince led 'is forces deep into the Kalkrein - tha's the Gran Duchy of Kalkrein to you lot. Now the Grand Duke was a crafty old fella called Cosmovoyda. Ee weren't the type ta make the same mistakes as Boris of Brascov. When ee first figgered out what were goin on, ee called up 'is men, demanded troops from the Tsar, and brought in sell-swords from Varcoast and Pontilia. 'Ell, even some of your folk were part of 'is forces. Well Bogdan, faced with overwhelming odds against 'im, went to ground in the forests of the Kalkrein. Ran what we'd now call a guerrilla campaign. For months ee fought only small skirmishes. Hit 'n' run. Got the baggage train, rather than the men it was following. An eventually, it started teh pay off for 'im. The Coscovy troops were recalled coz the Tsar din't think it were a real war. The sell-swords slunk off when the money ran out and they realised there mightn't be any loot. And the irregular troops all 'ad to be sent home for 'arvest, on account of the fact that Prince Bogdan 'ad been burning whatever 'is men couldn't eat. Now, with the numbers more to 'is liking, ee launched a daring raid at the 'eart of the Kalkreinian army. In the middle of the forest, Bogdan caught the Grand Duke unprepared, and held 'im hostage. Well, by all accounts, the two got on like a house on fire. Gran' Duke Cosmovoyda were impressed at Bogdan's clever strategy, and Bogdan, well, ee were just impressed that the old fella din't hold a grudge. After a rowdy night of vodka and carousing, the Grand Duke emerged from 'is tent with one hell of a hangover. Ee announced that Bogdan would be betrothed to 'is daughter, the famously beautiful Countess Tatiana. Ee said that the Kalkrein were now allies with Bogdan's people, and would fight together against any enemy til the day ee died.

    The "Red Baron"

    I built the Red Baron, a recolor of the Ice Planet Blizzard Baron, inspired by Space: The Comic, a web comic that I discovered here on Eurobricks about 10 years ago. The real Red Baron was a World War I flying ace, and a fictional nemesis of the cartoon character Snoopy, as memorialized in a song by the Royal Guardsmen. Backstory: The Red Baron is rumored to be a former M:Tron employee with ties to Blacktron, flying a spacecraft designed in part with plans stolen from Ice Planet. Allegedly, this pilot used to fly the reliable old Vector Detector for M:Tron, but became frustrated with that ship's lack of acceleration and firepower relative to newer escort ship designs. Modifications (from front to rear): 2x forward cannons above where the skis would normally be located. This doubles the firepower of the standard 2x beam emitters deployed on the front of the main engines. "Nosecone" is a 4x4x2 black slope piece with side angles, to accomodate a larger forwards sensor array. M:Tron/Blacktron II style avionics replace the Ice Planet computer tiles, and the wing vents are replaced by 2x1 plates with a 1x1 slope tile (representing supplementary targeting sensor pods). Aft: tucked under the port and starboard Modified Facet 3 x 3 x 2 Top Item No: 2463 are small booster engines to provide redundancy and greater acceleration than a standard Blizzard Baron. Other notes: The ship lands on 3x Black Plate, Round 2 x 2 with Rounded Bottom (Boat Stud), which act as anti-gravity landing pads in place of trans-neon orange skis. The "Baron" himself is a racecar driver minifigure, but with opaque blacktron visor, black arms, and black airtanks. He now works as an independent private contractor for M:Tron, and provides escort for M:Tron cruisers as well as air cover for M:Tron mining and rescue operations.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    @RuffDraft You know what I wanna see? A modular casino!

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Almost all. The Shrimp Boat, High School, Train and Shrimp Shack all included one extra civilian minifigure in addition to the main characters and gloombies, each with a new torso and face. None of that is present this time around.
  9. His minifigure would have just been a generic man with a reused head print. I'd rather have him in a comic based set, or one from the new show, where he has his recognisable costume.
  10. Fingers crossed for a set with Zemo. I still can’t believe the left him out of the Civil War sets. You want the mini leviathan? Why? I’m scrapping that thing for parts so hard.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    We aren't getting a bunch of new prints? And almost all the characters the first time around were main characters or possessed too, so I don't really see what the issue is.
  12. The idea alone makes me want to throw up
  13. Nice (quite) thin scene! The trees are fantastic!

    [S15 - Scarif - TT] Stormtrooper Blue Milk Run

    Nice build! Well balanced. I like a lot those stormtroopers in the waters.

    That kiln is lovely - but replacing the tan tiles with dark red would make it marvelous, critics of single-color structures be dashed. I also like the look of the shed. The base area is pretty plain; perhaps some tastefully arranged plates in similar colors would detail it nicely. But a solid build nonetheless.

    [L14 - Vanik - CS] Stormtroopers Attack Vanik

    Nice build! Those patterns make the build very unique. I like a lot the shot on the storm trooper and its falling photogram.

    [Q12 Nanth'ri TT] Paving the way for the Stormtroopers

    I guess the reason I didn't put her on a throne was because I wrote her as a mercenary boss, rather than a pirate queen. But I guess the rest of the scene is pointing in that direction. Yep, I wanted a female counterpart to this guy:

    Do you buy toys other than LEGO?

    I was getting Transformer for a little while back a few years ago. Since it seems like the company wanted to do a remake of the G1 line without making the old toys. But now the urge to want to get more Transformers seems to wane down.

    I think it has to be a police station or a library!

    LEGO Star Wars 2020 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    That's the absolute best case scenario, but it'd be wise not to get our hopes up. That said, I never would have expected a death watch pack back in 2011. UNTINNI!

  23. Yeah, a $20-30 set with falcon, bucky, and zemo would be nice Hopefully it does get multiple sets though, it'd be nice to get another sharon carter, or John walker. At this point all I want from this set is rescue, the min leviathon, and the gauntlet
  24. And I thought the saddest part was when all the Jedi were getting killed off by the clone-troopers / storm- troopers. But that is probably just me.
