  2. Safety

    Green Darth Vader

    I am a lego collector and I got this figure straight out of the box from new. When not stored it was kept away from direct sunlight.
  3. Well, coming back to the forum after months away... this all sounds very confounding. What on Earth could be the UCS set, and why wouldn't it be an AT-AT when this is like THE year to make one? $160 is pretty wack, I'm also baffled (and will likely be disappointed) that the trend of overpriced sets with almost no good figures to come out of them will likely continue, lookin' at you, Soulless One. And the fact that we're also not seeing more Mandalorian sets is a puzzler, unless that Razor's Crest rumor is true. I suppose things are still somewhat undecided, but dang... it just seems like Star Wars sets are much worse than you used to, and each new iteration is like 25-40% more expensive than the stuff from a few years ago. Ah well. To quote Lando Calrissian, "This deal is getting worse all the time!"

    Brilliant. Again! You are absolutely one of the most creative builders. Your creations always amaze me.

    DC Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    Sure, but I meant in general, not just in terms of LEGO Should’ve phrased it more precisely...
  6. Safety

    Green Darth Vader

    It's all legit. I came out if the box like that. Been meaning to post pictures of it for years.
  7. So with the hints we have so far: - Has Sombrero Has short legs It’s not - long legs the already leaked Piñata Boy - Has the DC series piece for posing the fig Has combo hair/headgear It’s not - hystorical Jetpack Pilot - Is a food costume girl I said it’s a food. It’s not a fruit. It’s not - expectable Maybe a carrot girl? Looks like a minifigure from series 15 Has a weapon It’s not - new molds my guess is she’s going to be a Lady Knight (a la Jean d’Arc) or a Valkyrie Is a female counterpart for a figure from S12 Can go along with a character from series 8 and 1 from series 16 It’s not - male I agree with the common guess that this is a Lady Swashbuckler/Pirate, which is frankly overdue. Wouldn’t be surprised if it included a new hat/hair combo as well so they could slip it into the Pirates’ Bay Ideas set coming out soon. - Has an exciting printed torso with a classic LEGO set on it Has some normal LEGO pieces that come with him/her It’s not - pirate-related has to be some sort of meta Lego fan - It’s an animal costumed girl Is an animal suit girl/guy. You know. This animal has never been released before in LEGO pieces. It’s not - short legs Could be just about anything - sheep? otter? platypus? The odds of guessing right are low. - Can go along with a figure from series 4 and one from series 7 Has a beard It’s not - city-related Some sort of Viking, which might make a Lady Knight more likely than a Valkyrie for 4. - You can’t see the face Is prominently red It’s not - re-hash I’m guessing this is another costume but I couldn’t guess what - Is a rehash from series 2 with a new accessory Is prominently white It’s not - castle- related a Martial Arts Student - not sure what the new accessory will be though - Female/Sport Has both hands occupied It’s not - fantasy/sci-fi would jump-rope count as a sport in this case? - Has footwear parts You can’t see his/her hair It’s not - space-related I think we’re all pretty sure this is a Marine Biologist diving with a Sea Turtle at this point. Definitely a must have for me. - It’s basically a rehash Is prominently green It’s not - original a garbage person maybe, I seem to recall seeing a garbage truck in City a while back. - Has a face like he’s singing Is a contemporary figure It’s not - female If it’s only like he’s singing and not actually singing then I have a sneaking suspicion it’s just another excuse to reuse the megaphone piece - Female counterpart for a guy from series 6. Oh yeah I didn't tell you that. His/her accessory is a new mold It’s not - west-related Presumably either a female version of the Highland Battler or Sleepyhead, either one would probably need a new hair piece - Has a printed tile Is showing his tongue in his facial expression It’s not - counterpart my brain is stuck on that picture of Albert Einstein with his tongue stuck out, but I’m not sure how likely that is

    Even on the sides like this one? And why shoubd black turn into green? And even if it does, why did it happen to only ine torso in millions?
  9. Permission granted. Can't stand the sight of that guy.
  10. I'm tidy in a way: I always clear my workspace and put the boxes into their place after each building session, even if it means doing this more times a day. I have to do that since I have only a small living space and a family.

    Thank yoy for your feedback.i think i didnt make it biger because i want to keep it playble like a set. iam glad you like it.i think tha all creation has not so much bricks , difficult techniques and all this so o see that the second tower is ok for this.

    Green Darth Vader

    Unless of course those aren’t the original arms, legs and head that were attached to it. Having said that the paintwork doesn’t look too faded so you might be right.
  15. Hmm, maybe a figure loosely base on previous Licensed CMF properties? Like, another plant person? It would cover Sci-Fi, being green, and being a rehash (Plant Pot suit girl from S18, and Fly Trap from S14). And not original, doesn't exactly equate to "unoriginal", as in lazy. It could be like Poison Ivy, but y'know, second-rate.

    TLG acquires Bricklink

    I see the colour "flesh" has been changed to "nougat". I hope there are few other changes; I'm not a fan of "earth green" for "dark green", "bright reddish violet" for "magenta" etc.

    Mr. Gold guidance...

    If you have that much proof that it’s a legit fig, you shouldn’t have much of a problem selling it on bricklink, eBay, or other local selling options (craigslist, kijiji, Facebook). Could also ask a local seller to broker it for you.

    Branch line station from a well known franchise

    Very nice, and the mix of old and new gray on the slate roof is a great touch

    Hogwarts Express MOC

    That is coming along very nicely.

    Surely there is a small museum somewhere that would happily display it for you when you aren't showing it elsewhere. At the very least see if there might be a buyer before disassembling it.

    Hello there, I'm Sandal. Thanks for inviting me here.
  22. Just building from instructions already got you some basic skills.

    Branch line station from a well known franchise

    Thanks for the offer. All the minifig scale stuff, such as luggage, plants and figs is yet to go on. as for the rest, some of what you’re talking about are conscious aesthetic choices, aiming to simplify and smooth the building. I’m an 80s LEGO kinda guy. And since it’s a small layout with a kid/toy theme I’d like the viewers to look at it and go ‘I could do that (given right coloured pieces)’. There’s a place for ‘how did you do that?’ builds, but I’m not aiming for that here. That said, I did note the big blank wall in the middle which needs.. something, and throwing some profile bricks into corners isn’t a bad idea either. What isn’t apparent from the single picture is the station is a single solid unit with no interior, it sits on tiles and a handful of studs, but comes off easily for transport. I can hold it upside down and shake it a bit without worrying about pieces falling off.

    Flagging this in a quote because I think there is a way to address this in the future. I'm just waiting until the end of the quest for all my thoughts.

    Trixbrix slip switches

    Oh yes, BT is the top of the line and it is hard to tell BT from lego... except for the fact that BT has radii that you actually want to run on (grin). And yes, ME pales in comparison to today's options, but having made the investment in 4 loops of ME I'm not going to throw it away just yet. I glued it long ago and it remains functional. On a side note, ME does click fine with my older TB switches. Anyway, enough drooling, trigger pulled.
  26. Kit Figsto

    Green Darth Vader

    The thing that makes me uneasy about that is that it's the only part. Other than some dust, the rest of the figure and the arms appear completely fine. I would assume sun damage would cause at least some part of the arms to get faded or discolored. It'd be a question for @Safety, but if this has been stored in the box or away from the sun, I think it's safe to say it's a misprint.
