  2. Another jaw-droppingly gorgeous train from you - the loco is beautiful, but I think the van wagons stand out most with their wealth of little details. Beautiful colours and excellent parts usage all around - very well done!

    Jurassic World 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    I hope we see a set with pteranodon, I know it has appeared in every single wave except 2019 but I want it for 3 reasons: they are supper good army builders or in this case flock builders? Second Pteranodon Longiceps is my favorite animal and I want to have as many of those as possible and third I want a TLW color skin varían which would be amazing or a scientifically accurate Pteranodon which would also be amazing. PD: sorry if my grammar is bad I’m Venezuelan

    Yes, I'd love to see a CoS polyjuice Advent calendar. Also, that AC could use the Slytherin common room as its background image, which would be visually quite interesting. While I wouldn't mind a Burrow AC, I don't see there being much to add beyond what was in the recent Lego set in terms of background image. In the movies, the main Christmas decorations at the Burrow are a basic tree and a cake with a moving figure on it. Not too exciting. Likewise, while I wouldn't mind getting more minifigs associated with the Burrow, those would largely be similar to minifigs that have already been done before. They would not be must-get items like the Ron and Harry Christmas jumpers or the Patils in Yule garb from prior ACs. Polyjuice Crabbe and Goyle and cat-Hermoine would be must-get!
  7. Except this is not even remotely the same case. First off, Boba Fett and Slave I are iconic from the OT and were just heavily featured in Mando season 2 and if they included Fennic she featured in both seasons of Mando in addition to the upcoming BoBF. These are hardly unknown, intested characters and designs. Rebels featured an entirely brand new cast with new ships that no one knew or cared about yet. Selling a Slave I that features an updated Boba Fett with Fennic Shand works as merchandise for both Mando season 2 AND tBoBF.

    Thanks, It makes sense that it will stay full price for a bit longer. No point in hanging off for it then.

    I highly doubt the price will drop in the first few weeks, especially not 20%.
  12. Hello together Who does not know it? The Swiss Crocodile. An icon for a long time and has been on my "want to have" list for quite some time. Then Lego made us happy last year with the set 10277 Crocodile. That was the starting signal for the realization of my dream crocodile. The Lego version has strengths and weaknesses. But it has made the locomotive better known in Lego circles and generally the praise for the set prevails. I also praise it, but the weaknesses had to be eliminated. Main criticisms from me were the wrong running gear and the huge gap between the stems. But I didn't want to hide only the weaknesses and so it became a complete redesign. A few ideas from the Lego Crocodile have certainly survived, also there are general similarities. It would be funny if there weren't, because then Lego or I would have done something completely wrong. SBB Ce 6/8 II "14253": This locomotive is the oldest surviving crocodile of the class. The "14253" was built in 1919 by the Schweizerische Lokomotiv- und Maschinenfabrik (SLM, mechanical part) and the Maschinenfabrik Oerlikon (MFO, electrical part). Thought and used the locomotive for freight train traffic among others on the Gotthard railroad (1920 - 1924, 1943 - 1976). Technical data: Length over buffers: 19.4 m Service weight: 126 t Friction weight: 103 t Driving wheel diameter: 1350 mm Power: 2688 kW / 3650 hp (rebuild Be 6/8 II) Speed: 65 km/h In 1943 it was rebuilt to Be 6/8 II "13253". The rebuild included more powerful engines, so that the top speed was increased to 75 km/h. This was followed by the change to the new engine. This was also followed by the change to the dark green paint scheme. After the rebuild, the locomotive was again stationed and in service at Erstfeld on the Gotthard. In 1976, the locomotive was handed over to SBB Historic for maintenance. It was refurbished as a ready-to-run museum locomotive "14253" and the original red-brown paint scheme was restored. The locomotive was also reclassified as a Ce 6/8 II, although the more powerful engines of the Be 6/8 II remained installed. To this day, the locomotive is in service and on display at Erstfeld as a museum locomotive ready to run. Main goals of my version: - correct running gear - all wheels equipped with flanges, because the "flying" flangeless wheels usually look unattractive. Consequence was, that the middle axle has to be mounted laterally shiftable (like in the prototype). - functioning linkage with counterweight - working lighting with correct light in both directions - usable power to be able to pull a nice train sometimes - prototypical details as far as possible and reasonable - prototypical lettering - a driver (ok, only 1/4 driver, there was only space for head and hair...) I invested a lot of time in the prototypical linkage. I couldn't realize my idea with Lego parts, nor with ready-made 3D parts off the shelf, so I designed a rather complex part for the triangular rod and a simpler one for the counterweight: I was able to find a small space for Urs: Lego version: - approx. 1830 Lego parts - 4 BigBenWheels S for the leading axle, because the wheels are free to see, I decided against the Lego train wheels for optical reasons - 8 3D-printed parts for the rods - 1x BuWizz 2.0 as battery and controller - Lighting brand "Self-Made" with PF connector - sticker brand "Self-Made" no other foreign parts and no machined or glued Lego parts. weight: ca 1050 gram length: approx 48 cm width from the model: 8 knobs with slight protrusions from individual details To switch on the transformer can be removed upwards and so you can get to the BuWizz. The BuWizz is charged in the same way. This is also an advantage of the BuWizz. SBB Ce 6/8 II "14253" in service with contemporary freight cars: All wagons have a concrete prototype with formerly existing numbers SBB J2D 22179: Vegetable and fruit wagon J2D with ventilation, color scheme 1950-1965. SBB K3 43105: Standard freight wagon of the SBB, color scheme period ca. 1913 - 1935 SBB J2D 22715 Express freight wagon of the SBB, period ca. 1912 - 1935 SBB K3 44738: modernized standard freight wagon K3 of the SBB, color scheme period ca. 1958 - 1968 this wagon has got the tail light attached The freight wagons are mostly identical, but always differ in details and in the color scheme. Differences are e.g. sometimes with brakeman's cab, sometimes without, number of windows on the brakeman's cab. In the case of the refrigerator car, there is also the ventilation. Each car weighs about 510-520 grams and requires just over 1100 Lego parts. The high number of parts comes from the elaborate sidewall structure with jumper plates (almost 200 per car) and the higher roof. To keep the rolling resistance low, I equipped the Lego metal axles with ball bearings again (analogous to the rest of my car fleet). SBB Ce 6/8 II "14253" in its current state as a museum train: SBB C4 5301: 3rd class coaches with 72 seats of the SBB, built in 1937 SBB AB4 3721: Built in 1951, 1st/2nd class coaches, 24 seats in 1st class, 32 seats in 2nd class. This car is equipped with the final signal and therefore runs at the end of the train. Details were hinted at on the underbody: detailed bogies were of course a "must" again: both cars have an interior with seats (most of them also suitable for figures) and toilets in the ends of the coaches. The middle roof part is removable for playing: Car crossover: The passenger coaches consist of about 1550 Lego parts each. The decals are again self-made and all metal axles were equipped with ball bearings. The weight of one of this coaches is almost 1Kg, the length 66 studs. I think the passenger coaches also cut a good figure behind the crocodile: Special thanks to Ronny. The freight cars are based on a design by Ronny, but built from scratch with many changes. For some details for the locomotive there was also good advice from Ronny. As bonus: Have fun watching. Thomas
  13. Built and installed in the model two trasparents supports attached to the jaw line. Now the model is finally complete. Definetely my new greatest build.
  14. A bit too many prefab bricks and not out of my mind about the giant dragon head, apart from that I like it and it has definitely some character suited in the hazy mountains and forests as clearly demonstrated by the front and back of the manual. Shame it never had a successor. I own it as well btw. Non 2nd hand.

    If Diagon Alley is available in other retailers in March when do you think the price will drop? Smyths do offers? My son wants it for his February birthday but I think he could be persuaded to hold off a few weeks if its likely to be 20% off.

    Future Castle Sets?

    It's a creator set so it will probably be a brick built horse, but they may surprise us and throw in a large molded animal. It will be interesting to see what the other 2 builds will be alternate to the castle.

    LEGO IDEAS - The Medieval Blacksmith

    I hope this comes out soon. I'm just itching for something official lego castle to buy. I really do hope that lego does more castle ideas sets.
  18. When the movie Toy Story 4 came out a cute and innovative promotional display appeared in near a mall in Tokyo. The playing shadows of the Toy Story characters could be seen through frosted glass cabinet doors. When the doors opened the toys “magically” reverted to inanimate objects. My MOC is the opposite, asking can toys come to life when someone’s watching? This is my Toy Story/Pixar Automata Cabinet where the toys can move when the doors are open and people are watching. There are two drawers that open as well as the central doors that reveal the music box interior with dancing Toy Story characters. The interior also has power functions lighting. In the Toy Story 4 movie there are lots of easter eggs in the Antique Store scenes that reference many of Pixar movies and short films. I have included many of my own easter eggs to some of these films in addition to the many of the main characters from the Toy Story films. The Automata function on the top of the cabinet has been modified from Teun de Wijs’s “Fisherman” and the music box component behind the cabinet doors is modified from pixeljunkie’s “Swan Lake Ballet”. Two Lego parts have been recoloured and the only non Lego part used is the music box which plays “Let It Snow” (Unfortunately, I didn’t have a “You’ve Got a Friend In Me” music box). The Pixar movies referenced are Coco, Ratatouille, Wall-E, Inside Out, Brave, The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, Lava, Monsters Inc., Boa, Cars, Up, A Bug’s Life, Bird on a Wire, La Luna, Geri’s Game, The Blue Umbrella, Partly Cloudy, Bounding, Presto, One Man Band, Lifted, Piper, The Good Dinosaur, Soul, Onward, and of course Luxor Jr. More pictures and videos of the movements can be seen on my Flickr page. Thanks for looking. Hope you enjoy.

    that much I figured. I should have tailored my expectations to not expect the SM 3 sets in the summer
  20. Thanks for another awesome update, everyone! I would just like to point out that the brake disc 35189 seems to be lacking the connectivity to pop in into the appropriate hubs.
  21. Hold the middle mouse button and move the mouse. And you can pan the camera if you hold "shift" while pressing the middle mouse wheel button.

    SB00201 TS-PROJECT (MOC Tie Silencer UCS)

    Hi Chris I wish you luck in finding someone to part with their instruction manual, these are seen as collectors items in themselves and will probably set you back a lot of money. - but the ship is probably worth it as it’s amazing. The Starbricks K2SO project is available and looks like an awesome build, have you shown you’re son that?

    Does anyone know if the white technic axle 16 can be replaced with black ones? The white ones are hard to find and very expensive. thanks
  24. @astyanax could you check something? The slack in the rear hubs isn't ideal, it's all because they're a pinhole mounted on an axle. It's ok as it is, but that wobble is going to stress the CV joints if you start adding more power. If you used 3L pins without friction in the rear hubs to take out the slack, could you then push in half pins with bars to mount the brake calipers back on? For now I just used CaDA 3L pins with friction to take out the slack, but they don't accept a bar and nor do Lego 3L Pins with friction. I don't have any Lego 3L's without friction handy to try it.

    if Godzilla vs Kong does well enough like WW84 then maybe it could happen for The Batman as well. I do agree with you that as of now the earliest the sets may come out is January 2022
