  2. What kind of police are you trying to make? How do you want the Minifigs to look? Some specifics would help narrow the search-criteria, and would give members a better understanding of what you are looking for.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Definitely in for the portal. spooky scenery plus good ghosts. I'm a sucker for lighthouses. I'll probably get it, then combine it with one or more other lighthouses and see what I can come up with from the pieces. I'll probably get the subway, but mostly as a starting point for a modification. Need to think about what I'd do differently without making the MOC a billion pieces. Haunted fairground I'm not sure about. I do want the clowns.... I'd be more excited if I had fairground sets to combine it with, but I don't even have, like, the pirate coaster or other basic creator sets. Doubt I'll get the buggy or biplane. Already got so many vehicles tucked away. Maybe the ghost figs will get me if i see a good sale.

    Agree, especially considering you only get 100 extra bricks with the Lamborghini set.

    HIDDEN SIDE - 2019

    Recently built the graveyard set. enjoyed it way more than i expected to. I'm in danger of getting all of them at this rate.

    Because they don’t need to release another D2C so soon. Diagon Alley can come out in 2021.
  7. ... not at all. I was reply to your comment "I've found a lot on ebay but are they all authentic and original?" where you seem to have that concern yourself. I think you can either set up some saved searches on eBay and buy lots of police Lego as they come up, or go to Bricklink and buy up what you need from the wide variety there that MAB pointed out. Even if it's a few different sellers on Bricklink, it'll still most likely be faster and easier than digging through eBay listings.

    The police car recolor looks pretty good. I didn't realise it was a recolor at first glance.

    £34.99 for the Jaguar set is okay but £54.99 for the Lamborghini double pack is obscene.

    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    These new BAM exclusives are really making me return back to the store quiet often just to look out for new pieces. Good job TLG... But it's bad for my wallet. Haha.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Thank you so much for this. It's so frustrating when people complain about two sets depicting similar subject matter in pretty much completely different ways being "practically the same". The build is such an important part of a Lego set, after all, so for people to dismiss one of the most unique lighthouse builds we've gotten in years based on the most superficial similarities is pretty reductive. I'm liking these sets in general, even though as typical of a January wave the range of sets is less dramatic and substantial overall than a summer wave. The lighthouse is one of my favorites, and mirrors a concept I had been trying to come up with digitally, but much more effectively. The plane, too (I guess it's not that original of me to have thought that a stuntman like El Fuego might get a stunt plane to complement his stunt truck). The abandoned subway has some wonderful Night in the Woods vibes, even if small (and I love how it and the Portal set complement one another). The beach buggy and the ghost fair I'm less impressed by—the beach buggy has a sort of neat build for that price point but I'm not too keen on its color scheme, while the ghost fair feels like it would need to be bigger to truly impress. I'm hopeful that the subsequent summer wave will feature some larger sets that can compare a little better to the current wave's train, bus, and school sets.

    Le Phénix

    Hey, I really like your ship although a bit bulky but as always, your presentation is top notch! I even shivered at the site of your surgeon. Plus I am a sucker for group photos so the ones with the sailors etc are nice too. P.S: I also wiki-ed the stormglass device you mentioned. The follies a man falls sometimes into, are unbelievable... Definitely not Corries at their best (assumingly it were Corrington scientists that invented this...thing)...

    For this year's OcTRAINtober challenge I decided to build a single unit of SBB’s firefighting train. Given the time constraints of the challenge, I knew that I would only be able to complete one unit of the LRZ consist. Therefore, I chose the largest unit with a water cannon. I would need the space to house, the battery/receiver, pump, water tank, drive motor, and cannon rotation mechanism. I began the design in LDD and quickly drafted the frame, cab and container. This gave me a rough idea of the space I had to work with. I tried to position the pump motor as low as possible to allow for the maximum amount of height for the cylinder. Since there was only one option for the drive motor placement and cabin space was already limited, the placement of the cannon rotation mechanism and drive motor had to be placed in the container. Due to the vertical distances between the cannon rotation motor and cabin, I opted to use a pulley system because the string could be guided through a series of holes to account for the vertical displacement. When I eventually started building the model IRL, I encountered some unexpected setbacks; namely two parts I had used did not exist in the colors I had used in LDD. This required some time to redesign. In addition to a bricklink kerfuffle, I had lost valuable time to complete the model. Again, due to the limited time, I prioritized functionality over aesthetics and realism. Although the model is less detailed than I would like it to be, pleased with the progress I made in just over one month. Note: The train is not specifically based on either the Xtmas 99 or Xtmas 80, rather a blend of the two. Information/Scale Drawing: VIDEO:

    REVIEW: 75222 Betrayal at Cloud City

    I am surprised. It is just a year old set for a D2C playset. Normally, it ought to have a 2 years shelf life.

    Because it's not on sale yet. It will be on sale at some point this month for at least 20% off. When it's gone then it's gone. I like the 'logic' of LEGO fans. If the set retires early, it must be popular. If it retires early maybe it wasn't as popular so LEGO decided not to make more of the set. Maybe it just had a piece that was no longer being used, the mold broke, and therefor they couldn't make more.

  21. Way to go Maxim! GZ on the ships being frontpaged too! I see some clever ideas put to good use and some great stern decoration as well
  22. I dare say that’s because the bucket’s white and not dark grey

    Galley, La Capitana, Chapmann LVIII

    Pirates need something to pray upon nonetheless! Plus I imagine that there are some city lovers out there, ready to be converted to our cause (so as to build a peaceful merchant harbour city of the past - that isn't being raided and plundered). So, let's show them the way to the bright side
  24. And the choice to use an assassin droid because of IG-88’s fame was also intentional. Hence I call him “not-IG-88”. Bear in mind I have no problem with the character, I’m just not gonna pretend that they’re not banking on nostalgia lol. The same goes for the Mandalorian himself. But ultimately it’s a pointless discussion so I’m gonna stop here.
  25. @Aine, Third party. I think it’s Little Armory from its long discontinued medieval weapons range. @Exetrius, The new Hidden Side two-headed minifigure is the first LEGO has done with unmodified heads. Hopefully, it will do more.
  26. Mission Log from Pvt Joka: Operation Purge is well on its way. Silvertail squad was tasked to mop up any remaining resistance. Easier said than done....The Pirates dug their heels into the mud and dared us to come after them....and so he did.....Only to be met flesh-eating diseases, night ambushes and raids, cut off for weeks in the dense jungles and abandoned by our superiors... Silvertail squad status: 2 KIA, 1 MIA and two injured. Our sergeant is clueless about what to do bout our situation. We are combat ineffective. I have done right by my brothers and arms, I have always kept a sharp eye for ambushes. Nevertheless, I no longer believe the mission...Not Operation Purge...but the Corp mission...After we get out of this hellhole and going to discretly ask transference to the Special Forces Command.

    PR tagged retiring soon for 3-4 days now, no "backorder accepted" let alone "sold out"... I think Bank was succesful because it broke the cycle and retired unexpectedly.

    Why? There isn't really anything DH-specific that's D2C worthy, at least not that I can think of atm
