  2. Here is my review on 60207 Sky Police Drone Chase: THE GOOD: The drone is surprisingly good. The pilot visor and breather piece is good for customer figures. Printed logo on the helicopter's tail! THE NOT SO GOOD: The status helmet gold does not match the 'gold' of the rest of the figure. The canopy piece doesn't close completely, too much space around. Overall, I think it's an okay set. I really bought this for the statue for other purposes but the drone turns out to be a nice surprise. Recommend if you are a police theme fans otherwise I would say get the parts you want via Brick & Pieces.

    Technic 2019 Set Discussion

    Personally I don't mind the flat surfaces and hard edges, this way it is easier to see where the motor will fit. At the beginning I had some challenges to "see" if e.g. the XL motor will fit somewhere or not due to the shape. What bothers me more is the color variation - the Boost and the "city" components are white, the Control+ components are grey. They will look weird when used together. Another interesting bit from the interview was about the controller and the whole design approach - apparently the development of PU parts is project based, meaning instead of designing a complete family of components and releasing them gradually they follow a project based approach and they create the component if a new project (set) needs it. This means we are stuck with the current controller because no one from the Technic team asked yet for a controller with joysticks and proportional control
  4. "Cut off one head, two more shall take its place." "Hail HYDRA." This is my 31st reviews in Eurobricks and I'm very happy to present more LEGO set reviews here. I enjoyed it very much and hope you like them too. Overview Name: 76048 Iron Skull Sub Attack Theme: Marvel Super Heroes Year: 2016 Pieces: 335 Minifigures: 4 Price: £29.99 / $29.99 The Box The box art of the set is showing a mission of Iron Man saving Captain America that was captured by Iron Skull. The battle occurred in the ocean and red skull seems to be able to breath underwater without any breathing apparatus. Cap is saved! Here you can see a few play features in the set build and the fight around the submarine. Side panel features the 1:1 Scuba Iron Man. The Instruction Booklets There are two instruction booklets here and one comic book. (My first book was crumpled when I put them in my bag..) The parts list. To me, 4632100 and 6135470 is quite special in this set. I've put the comic book in this GIF, stay a little while here to read the comics and it kinds of promoting the other set 76049 Avenjet Space Mission which I still don't have.. Stickers, not a lot and they are quite easy to apply as they are required at large pieces. The Build Let's start with this small build of the underwater vehicle piloted by this Hydra Diver. It is a simple build with matching colour of the minifigure. The weird looking submarine has a fierce and menacing look from the front. Red eyes with orange teeth. Let's see what's inside. It is actually a very brilliant build using these three parts combined to look like teeth which I like it very much. Side views. They looked very symmetrical from both left and right. The panels open this way and there is a storage box for you to put those extra ammo for the stud shooters. The back view. As I mentioned, the ship is very symmetrical. Captain America's cell is clipped to the yellow part near the Hydra sticker and chained so that it won't float away. that yellow part under Iron Skull's seat is to hold the cell in place. It can be taken out by removing the clip quite forcefully but the body of the ship is quite sturdy so it won't fall apart so easily. Captain's cell in trans red door panels. The space is just nice for cap and his shield. But if he is inside with his shield, he won't be inside anymore, right? The Minifigures Iron Skull. Johann Shmidt is the leader of Hydra, a terrorist group derived from the Nazis. He was powered by an early and unstable version of the Super-Soldier Serum, and adopted the identity of Red Skull. Since then, he has battled Captain America and his fellow heroes for years, without ever achieve his goals of global domination. He is bald so he can't have alternative face. His torso is nicely done with red and black. The front and back printings resembles that he is wearing an Iron suit around him underwater. Hydra henchman. Underwater Red Skull's minion. Not much information on who is this loyal supporter of Hydra who's willing to fight to the death for the bad guys. He is wearing a pair of shiny goggles, green suit with a batman utility belt with a H on the buckle. He is equipped with a Scuba Breathing Regulator and lime green flippers. Steve Rogers. Captain Steven Grant "Steve" Rogers is a World War IIveteran, a founding member of the Avengers, and Earth's first known superhero. Rogers was the only recipient of the Super Soldier Serum developed by Abraham Erskine under the Strategic Scientific Reserve. He has a breathing apparatus and a pair of red flippers and he is holding his Vibranium shield as usual. This print is quite cartoonish but it looks nice and muscular. His head print is also very detailed with the back of the helmet also printed with silver base. Scuba Iron Man. The Mark 37 (Mark XXXVII), also known by its codename as "Hammerhead", is a Deep Sea Suit, and was one of several new Iron Man Armors created by Tony Stark as part of the Iron Legion. The armor was created sometime after the Battle of New York. This suit is in Iron man 3 preparing to fight the Extremis Soldiers. I LOVE this sand green Iron Man!!! This armour piece is so well designed and the printed trans clear round tile on the chest is a very nice touch to the minifigure! To me this design of iron man is impeccable. You think that's all for this minifigure? The torso print under the armour is also amazingly done! I really love the bronze-gold colour stripes printed on this sand green figure. Don't forget there is a turbo jet printed at the back of the torso too! Minifigures only without anything attached. They are perfect. I am not so sure why this set is unpopular. Look at these minifigures, as a Marvel fan, this set is not to be missed! Conclusion This is a very nice set for Marvel fan and Iron man minifigure (List of LEGO Iron Man) collector. The minifigures are colourful. Maybe the downside of the set is the submarine build which kind of hard to relate to any Marvel movie. Review summary Playability: 6/10 - The submarine is not really playable unless you want to store minifigure in the cell. Design / Building Experience: 8/10 -The design of the sub is good and nice part use of the orange teeth. Minifigures: 10/10 - Perfect minifigures! They are so nicely designed and printed! Price / Value for money: 9/10 - The value goes to the minifigures. Unless you like to display a scary looking submarine on your shelf. (But we can always put it beside the haunted house right?) Overall: 8.25/10 - Not bad overall score for an underwater set. Again, very nice minifigures! Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below. My reviews in Eurobricks.

    The Ladybird Pirate books.

    I know it's old... but did anyone ever scan these books? I have all the German audio dramas and English transcripts and both Activity books and the first comic book but never could find scans of these.

    Technic 2019 Set Discussion

    So far I don't have a good impression about the new motors. I mean it is nice to see an evolution, also the shapes can be better integrated, but they could have add some nice surface / design on the moulds. These motors look just cheap to me: plane surfaces, hard - but not very sophisticated -edges. It will be not that much pleasure to take in hand them, as the previous ones - especially the old L motor (which is a design masterpiece in my opinion!), but the old XL had the beefy bull feel as well. I believe the branding got hurt with these design language, and set the power functions into a lower class product zone.

    Quadruple crossing automated by Arduino

    Like every other project of mine, it never works the first time! The problems were with the timing.

    If you could pick one recolor

    I'd also like to see the x105 visor in light and dark pearl greys.

    That grim reaper/ghost has really caught my eye! For some reason I love that face now! It's pretty amusing.

    [MOC] Retrofuturistic garage hideout

    I love how you managed to make a MOC that is essentially "The Jetsons meets Grand Theft Auto" I mean the red hover car looks like it could easily exist in the world of The Jetsons as it is.

    Hippie Chick's colors are amazing! I'm assuming the other two are Wraith and either Early Bird or Workaholic.

    Happy 30th Anniversary PIRATES!

    Does anyone know, for a fact, if there are any plans to officially celebrate the 30th anniversary, even at the parks? A Pirate rollercoaster and treehouse are tribute sets and in no way a "Pirates" theme. Ninjago came the closest to a revival, though very short-lived. 1989 Pirates Trivia Did you know that, although the LEGOLAND Pirates System, as it was originally called, officially debuted for everyone September 1, 1989... BUT, as listed in the 1990 Shop at Home Service Catalog, "preferred customers," (what is now known as VIP) were able to purchase four smaller, "impulse buy" sets starting August 1, 1989? Those were Pirate Mini Figures, Castaway's Raft, Shipwreck Island, and Sabre Island. The sets that joined these four on September 1 were: Buried Treasure, Harbor Sentry, Black Seas Barracuda, Forbidden Island, Eldorado Fortress, Caribbean Clipper. It is assumed the Pirate Comic Adventure Set also premiered during this time throughout the world.
  16. Thanks man! I checked the hight a few times in the way. I wanted a tall wall that was higher than most other walls/castles bit not so high that the MOC would look odd. The rock base helped so I could build it higher than if it would only stand on the "ground plate". It was quite boring in the end to put those 1x2 together The colours I choose is all in the darker side. I wanted dark green because it's one of Avalonia colours. But I didn't use sand green as I first intended because it's not as dirty as olive green. My next HSS MOC will be more colour full.

    LEGO BrickHeadz 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    I wonder if this has anything to do with Lego partnering with dreamworks

    LEGO BrickHeadz 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Besides Stranger Things (which I too would be very interested to see for the theme), other properties which could potentially be covered next year may include Overwatch, Avengers: Endgame, The Rise of Skywalker, Jurassic Park (not Jurassic World), Toy Story, DC's Shazam!, and perhaps Disney's Aladdin (the 1992 classic rather than this year's live-action remake). Maybe in lieu of seasonal archetypes, perhaps they could rather opt for other generic, yellow-fleshed CMF archetypes such as a Policeman, Knight, Astronaut, Pirate, Cowboy, Cheerleader, Crash test Dummy...
  19. I did an A3 report of sorting and storing my LEGO. Eliminated rework and did some visual management as a result. Anyone else do this?

    Damn Robert, now I reeeeally want a female counterpart to Series 7's Hippie from Lego... ...that's an instant favorite at first sight!!! P.S. That Business Guy's eyes. Is he, um, overcaffinated there?

    LEGO BrickHeadz 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    I’m really curious why they took a break this year then and if it will ever be addressed. Last year was really, really overloaded with so many available at once and this year it’s just seasonal. Curious to see the quantity of stuff next year — fingers crossed for Stranger Things!
