    Themes LEGO should discontinue

    There is no evidence for this. The overlap between the markets for Trolls and Minions and other classic themes is likely to be small. If LEGO wasn't doing Tolls and Minions, other companies would be (like MegaConstrux did Minions in the past) and people wanting Minions sets would be buying from the other company. If there were more classic theme sets from LEGO, then they would not be of interest to them if they wanted Minions.

    General Part Discussion

    Can anyone help me figure out why TLG modified the design of the PF battery box in 42095 if PF is going to be discontinued anyway?
  4. Besides the Hulk bigfig increasing the price lego probably upped the price because of Rescue and the Stark Gauntlet, not because they're more expensive to make but because people want them. Other than Rescue and the Gauntlet this set is pretty crappy to me
  5. @jb70 we already spoke about that, it was done on purpose :) If the kid will see that engine is spinning faster, he will fill that it is higher speed :)
  6. It‘s not really Disney‘s decision though... There have to be legal reasons why the Netherlands get to watch D+ already whereas the rest of Europe has to wait until March if not longer (i.e. distribution disputes between competing streaming services and other such nonsense) Sure, they could‘ve postponed the launch until the service was ready to go world-wide, but that would take a loooong time I suppose... Yeah, I‘ve seen the big spoiler as well... But I’m not complaining, that‘s what you get for frequenting r/starwarsleaks
  7. As far as curves go, something from the '30s would be sweet to see, like a 1936 Cadillac V16 Fleetwood Aero Coupe or an Auburn 851SC Boattail Speedster...

    Marvel Superheroes 2019 - Rumours, Speculation & Discussion

    I hear that! What is it about that set which makes the pricing seem so out of whack? It’s Lego who are wrong and not us, right? What’s there is not two thirds of a Sanctum Battle.

    MAfia - Sign Ups

    That should be fine I guess. Sorry there hasn't been more!
  12. I don't think people really think this, especially as it's incredibly easy to pirate/stream new series/movies nowadays The spoiler warnings here are just so people who haven't had a chance to watch the episode don't accidentily read spoilers here, just like whenever a new movie comes out. But in general, Disney's decision on distributing D+ is extremely stupid as it pretty much encourages people to pirate the episodes
  13. Here is how (as posted by me in another thread): I've downloaded the .dat files from www.bigbenbricks.com and installed the Part Designer app that is part of the Stud.io package. Then, in Stud.io, I changed the selector from "Master List" to "Custom Parts", and clicked on the link that allows you to create a new part. This brings up the Part Designer and gives you several options (design new, design based on existing part, import file). Use import file, import the .dat file from BBB. Then, in the connectivity editor, make a round hole and an axle shaped hole and then save the design back into Stud.io. Do this for both the flanged and the blind driver and you have 2 custom parts in your Custom Parts list in Stud.io which you can now use. Didn't take more than a few minutes to do in total.
  14. Doesn't this answer your own question? I have my doubts about the setup anyway. The dark-gray CV part is also supported only by a half-stud. So I would expect some gear slipping here. Try it out, and see where the weakspot is by engaging the motors while holding the output axle. My expectation is that it's not the half-inserted axles. Also, I'm slightly worried about the combo of XL motors and (single) bevel gears. Is there room to move the motors to the left (to the left of the gray 2x6 plate) and use three 24t straight gears instead?

    I notice the piece count on set 75894 was 481 and that retailed for £45. These two double packs have a greater piece count of 565 and 663 so what will their prices be?

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Don't know if this has already been posted (sorry if it was) but came across this video while searching about the new modular and thought I would share it:
  18. I sincerely hope that we get The Razor crest and, of THAT character becomes a big part of the series than we could see them in the set And it’s cute that people actually think those of us that don’t get Disney+ till next April haven’t already seen this :)

    Themes LEGO should discontinue

    and the world famous movie "Die drei von der Tankstelle" is British ... I do believe though that the "Trolls" as such are Danish - well sort of. It appears if everything north from lets say Hamburg is Danish, Nordic or Norse, Scandinavian, Swedish, Vikings or the like. But the Danish really were and are into Trolls ... for what ever reason.

    Themes LEGO should discontinue

    That's the thing... those odd licenses take up a lot of LEGO's market space, leaving no room for more classic stuff.
  21. I think spoilers are pretty much innevitable if you live in a country where D+ doesn't come out this year, unless you pirate the episodes ofcourse
  22. Well, some could mod those 8wide to 7 wide. Akbalder, thank you for that link. I do like what I see.
