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

    The new TV spot with the Kylo Ren clip was amazing and it made me really want his new TIE as a set. I kinda feel like it’s a given but who knows with TLG sometimes. I think I liked his Silencer better, but this one (TIE Whisper I think?) is still pretty awesome looking

    Telephone building Modular

    Thank you. Thank you. I looked up that Helsinki telephone building. That was really cool to see, but definitely caught me off guard since it isn't what you'd expect.
  4. Now if only they would fix their mistake with the FO AT-ST... fingers crossed it makes an appearance in ep9 to justify LEGO giving us a proper set of one. It'd be a huge shame if they don't eventually as I absolutely love its design.
  5. Yesterday
  6. Thanks! We’ll see what Bricklink is like now that TLG has control, but yeah, I figure that it should be fairly affordable given that I have: a. Over one whole year to acquire the pieces b. Set 75218, which seems to be the backbone of the Candy X-Wing (the only changes are cosmetic, as far as I can tell) and c. I don’t care if it’s 100% accurate as long as it looks good
  7. The mode is written in the LXF but, after opening, you can just change the mode (menu View | New Themes). The mode you’re in when you save is the one which will be written in the file. (Colour information in the normal mode is totally out of sync with reality now. It was great to easily pick a colour though.)
  8. DANG!!!!! You Sir are a genius. I was going to bring that exact point up. Yeah though. People see us as malicious and slam us for asking for certain sets, especially City sets. That also goes for when we recommend that something gets discontinued.
  9. @Johnnycrash By the way, did you start the model in extended mode? I do not think you can open a non-extended model in extended mode. What you are describing is how it works when I try to repeat this process without using extended mode. (Maybe there is a way to export/import the model to change the mode? I don't know...) I only build using extended mode due to the freedom allotted with color changing. Generally, I use LDD as a prototype for physical builds I am planning, so I will later verify if parts are actually available in that color or I will check the markets for the part in that color before using it in a build. Extended mode is just simpler to use in my opinion, since you choose pieces and color separately rather than at the same time.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    That has been one of the most requested and talked about set-possibilities for months now, only second to the astronomy tower
  11. Good luck! I bet it'll be an amazing festive display piece and I'm pretty sure none of the pieces in the set are exclusive other than the minifigures.

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

    My thoughts exactly, the same with kylo's shuttle microfighter. Easy way to gr=et great figures for cheap I still think the lava looks juvenile, but I agree there are some good points besides the figures.

    Harry Potter 2020 - Rumors & discussion

    I feel like we could get that room (I forget it's name) from book 5 where Harry trains everyone as a set. We could get a few patronises and a good handful of students. Thoughts? EDIT: room of requirement

    TLG acquires Bricklink

    Just placed an order for a batch of customs, here is hoping it all goes through. So, looks like I wasn't being over the top or pessimistic with my predictions. I am a moderator, so I can totally say: TOLD YOU SO. Srsly man.

    That's so weird. Mine took 5 days processing so far. Just got the notice it shipped today. I ordered it last Saturday. I would say holiday rush, but it seems some are still having speedy service. Oh well.

    New train wheels tested by LEGO

    Can you elaborate in that? Some independent wheels are available? Btw this video makes me go back in time to that communication they gave us about technic Porsche and the gear sequence. They made it wrong on purpose to enhance our experience... Now I wonder what's next thing LEGO wants to blow to pieces?
  19. I'm wondering something. Certain people will tell us that LEGO listens to AFOLs all the time and that LEGO bends over backwards to please us. Will those same people tell us, the moment we ask for something, that LEGO is 100% a children's toy and that we should never ask for or expect anything?
  20. I better not leave you hanging! 🤚
  21. Ach! So close. Exciting game. It is not a loss for Weelond, and we have a rematch in 6 days.

    TLG acquires Bricklink

    So there you have it. We no longer can buy custom parts. Thank you LEGO... "Modified Parts: All parts listed in your store must be genuine LEGO parts in their original, unmodified condition. Custom printed, engraved, chromed, or painted parts are not permitted."
  23. ...I don't bloody know what the Abbé was thinking, setting up a Church of Poseidon in Mesabi Landing of all places. By all that's holy, even Meloche wouldn't've done something as mad as this. He can claim that the tidal wave that desolated this town was the will of the god, and that the heathens got what they deserve. I just wish he wouldn't do it when we're surrounded by the buggers. He reckons it'll give us an edge in the tournament. I reckon we'll catch the edge of someone's blade if we're not careful. Sodding hell! Extract from the journal of Robin the Cabin Boy I know I should've posted this before the 9th to get any kind of bonus, so I'm sorry I didn't put it up. Frankly, I suspect I'm not going to be rewarded for plonking a Church of Poseidon in Mesabi Landing, but I built the thing a while back, and it seemed really appropriate here. Hope you like it (enough to overlook the awkwardness...)! Built and licensed.
  24. I'm still disappointed by it but I do see at least a few good points. With some modification this could easily be made into a Starkiller-like diorama, the figures and platforms/droids are a good startingpoint. Though I'll definetely wait for a discount if I end up getting it
  25. While I wasn't a fan of the looks to begin with, realizing how scarce the functions are make me feel miserable for not buying 42009 when I had the chance. Speaking about looks I do think the well-praised 8460 also has strange dimensions. But that set made up for it by having everything engineered as you could wish for: gear-driven turntable, functional outriggers et cetera. As for the modding argument: if you put on enough time and/or parts you can make any set perfect. But there's a difference between adding a few flex hoses to the Volvo excavator to get rid of the ugly pneumatic hoses (for example) or having to basically redesign a set to make it decent.
  26. This break could not have been short enough, everybody. The fans are shouting for more, and so are we. Let's hope for a second half that can keep up with the spectacle of the first one, Jim. 45'' And off we go, the Weelond Regimentals take the kickoff. I can't make out any positional changes in either team, Jim. Those two yellow cards for the Smileys should have an impact on the game though. 51'' I guess you are right, Tiny. We see some action in midfield, but nothing compared to the explosive moves in the first half. The Smileys have taken the ball though, and it looks like the game is slowly shifting towards their opponents goal. 56'' Slowly indeed, Jim. But we are getting there... 61'' ... are we though? Robino Grijszon, called „Nino“, has just proven his reputation as the „Boy Wonder“, and taken the ball off Suzie Smilyes foot. He and „Pegleg“ are the foundation of Weelonds famous defense, they are called The Fenceposts for a reason. So this didn't come exactly as a surprise. Suzie might feel like handing out some headbutts though, Nino better beware! 67'' She is out for revenge, Jim, reclaiming the ball like a whirlwind! Will The Fenceposts endure? 69'' One misstep by Tsu-Chu, one goal for the Smileys. The game is even again, 3:3. I wonder if either team has the energy and will to make a decisive move in the last minutes of the game. 73'' The Weelond Regimentals are not known for giving up, and they push forwards once more. Fangio has fallen back to midfield and taken the ball from there. Now he is stuck in the Smileys' defense though. 75'' Randy and Mandy might not form the worlds greatest defense, but they have stopped Fangios attack, stabilising the Smileys game in the backfield for now. 79'' Montoya could snatch the ball, and suddenly the game is fast again! True that, Jim. A short pass to Fangio... back to Montoya, dodging a tackle from Randy... another short pass to Slegers... and a shot! Handy holds it, no problem. 85'' It seems like the Smileys want to play down the clock, for they are keeping the ball in their half. That's madness, Jim. The game is almost over, a successful offensive action would give them the victory and a great position in the fight for the groups leadership. I don't get it either, Tiny. Maybe they are just exhausted. It is a risky gamble nonetheless. 91'' Over and out! Weelond managed to seize the offense one last time at the 90 minute mark, but it was too little, too late. The referee ended the game just now, and his whistle was echoed by the Weelond fans – they can't believe the game stopped when their team was about to strike for the win. Such is life, Jim. The result is a 3:3, leaving the Sea Rats undefeated. A disappointment for the Regimentals, that much is certain. They had the victory for a time, but then let it slide. If they want to go for this years Cup they have to show more. They will have another chance in two days, and they have to deliver then. Looking forward to Sunday, as well as the second game of Group B tomorrow. Good night everybody, this was Jim Napier... ... and „Tiny“ McCoy. See you all tomorrow!
