>>7274320Poor TRU mascot. First he loses his store and then some fucking asshole cleans him out like a jack o lantern to wear as fursuit.
Anons, how do you use your Lego bricks? Do you play with minifigures? Do you just make MOCs? Do you display them?
>>7274327I have my own minifig adventures going on offscreen on my build table while I'm working on my own mocs
Is there anybody who has one of the "cyber" technic competition dudes who can take a picture of the side of the head with the cybernetic eye? I'm trying to draw them but it's hard to tell what the shaping is like there.
>>7274339rough sketch so far
clone wars the best lego star wars era! ry
>>7274378Damn, that‘s really coolSadly can‘t help you though, wanted to get one at the last lego fan con but they were all dirty
cute ghostAlso I can‘t be the only one seeing a horror reindeer with giant fangs, right?
>>7274456Seems like the creators really had fun with all of the chinese new year sets. There's a bunch of interesting techniques used in all of them.
>>7274320Finally i got the only "good guy" in my Sky Pirates crew.I wish i had lots of place so i can put all planes on the top of transparent blocks so they look like they in the middle of dogfight
>>7274453>reindeerKek.im pretty damn sure its fucking KRAMPUSit's so easy to make krampus out of thatjust add a whip and a red block that represents his tongue
>>7274476Or maybe a headlight brick and one of these.
>>7274327I make mocs for my mega bloks and then play around and pose them. Seriously with mega bloks, you can actually pose the figures.
>>7274327>Do you play with minifigures? Do you just make MOCs? Do you display theAll of three.I display my mocs when i MOC'ed them to the point i dont want to add anything else but also don't want to destroy what i built.But sometimes i take them and play with them.
>>7274453Ghost looks like must have
>>7274378Hey, it's the lego-tastic artstyle anon. Did you ever finish the Ogel you posted a million years ago?
>>7274521(forgot the pic)
>>7274453Why is Lego so hesitant to make brickheads of their own characters?Imagine:>Johnny Thunder>Classic Spaceman>Pirate
>>7274532Because nobody knows who that is. They make more money with super heroes and star wars and stuff like that.
>>7274547>Because nobody knows who that is. They make more money with super heroes and star wars and stuff like that.that's lego's faultThat's what you get for being shitty license-whore and Disney's cum-bitch instead of expanding your own universe.PS:Still im pretty sure people KNOW and CARE about major lego main line characters like those nexo knights or Laval from Legends of Chima. they not that forgotten and pretty iconic looking.Releasing at least 4 famous KLOCKI characters would be great.but noLego keeps feeding shitty geek girls with this funko pop rejects
>>7274532>Johnny ThunderI did that when Brickheadz first came out (I think I was actually the first one, there‘s a bunch more now). It‘s my most popular Moc and the one I‘m the least proud of.
>>7274558Well I'd definitely wold buy new Johnny Thunder sets but Brickhedz are kinda lame. I do have the Slimer and Venkman that I got free with Lego bux.>>7274566Cute.
This is infuriating. There's no reason for this brick to exist in any color.
How hard do hairline cracks on the sides of the torso/lower arm trigger your autism? When I was a kid I used to not care but I started noticing and now it bugs me a lot.
>>7274566Looks like a spic
>>7274456Tiny flaming titties!
Day 5A character I know and like. Very nice
>>7274453Aw crap, I hate it when the seasonal sets are brickheaded monstrosities. Mind you that ghost is pretty sweet looking and that deer looks like he's killed before. I might have to get at least those two but I do prefer the minifig vignettes more.
>>7274650Now that you pointed it out I can't stop seeing those as nipple tassels
>>7274532>Why is Lego so hesitant to make brickheads of their own characters?Because Brickheadz are aimed straight at the casual "nerd" collectors who buy things based on what famous franchise they are from, not aimed at Lego fans. These things emulate the style of Funko Pops which are pretty much iconic as a normie "nerd" collectable. Of course it's going to be Star Wars, Harry Potter and Superheroes. Out of the people who are into Brickheadz you'd have maybe 10% who would care enough about Johnny Thunder to buy one.And it doesn't matter now anyway since Brickheadz as a retail sub-line are dead in 2019 and it will only continue in the form of exclusives and promos.
>>7274532I buy a good deal of Lego and remember the old themes. I would only ever buy a brickhead for parts. the idea of a minifig as a brickhead is so eye rollingly dumb as to detach my retina.I feel you, and anons like you, live in such a bubble you can't even comprehend that; comfy-kino-klocki-classic insert theme, is not universally loved. if every classic theme were re-released and expanded on, I would not buy them. I don't understand anons who don't build mocs. if you like things that aren't released build them yourself.
>>7274668>I feel you, and anons like you, live in such a bubble you can't even comprehend that; comfy-kino-klocki-classic insert theme, is not universally loved.I think people remember such themes fondly if they're old enough but I also think that since those themes didn't really have a heavily marketed story from Lego that people don't passionately love them. They see a Johnny Thunder minifig and they're like "Oh cool Johnny Thunder, I played with him" but since there's no canon big stories or such there's nothing for nostalgia to latch onto specifically other than a general love for building and playing with Lego.Hell, I think most people who are fans of pre-Bionicle themes have their own stories and ideas that they made up as kids that they probably feel more nostalgia for than any "official" versions of those sets. Like, everyone my age pretended that the "sensors" on the classic space sets were guns and went PEW PEW PEW, despite classic space officially being "peaceful".
>>7274547>Not knowing who Basil the Batlord isFag.
>>7274626This is why you find reasons, such as mounting it on one of these for a set of traffic lights that can be oriented horizontally or vertically:https://brickset.com/parts/4623113
>just found out about THE. BRICK. SHOW.F
>>7274684Stop being so mean and kill yourself
>>7274558>when you're a deluded manchild and think the world's largest toy company needs to cater directly to you instead of making profitable decisions
>>7274626I disagree, I think it makes an elegant light fixture.
>>7274327I buy it, make it, then wait until I get the urge to buy another, make it, and ignore it until I get anotherIt's not healthy, it's pointless, it's a waste of money, but fuck you I have a modular city and a fleet of spaceships
>>7274472Nice. Does he have an entertaining name?
>>7274327I find the experience of building the sets I purchase to be really peaceful, relaxing, and beneficial for my mind - I don't really play with my minifigures and my bricks like I did when I was younger, but I do set up nice comfy scenes and enjoy the atmosphere that can be created with bricks and figures. What about you anon?
>>7274327oh I forgot to mention I do display some of my sets too (Destiny's Bounty, ship in a bottle, old fishing store, statue of liberty, to name a few!)
what happened to this person :chttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjASjfUvVVlx4PfvEowlZvA
>>7274472That set and 31085 were great releases for the CMF Daredevil. Pretty tasteful mods you've done there. I feel you on the space issues. I still hold out hope that I'll get the Destiny's Bounty built and get it displayed with my Sky Pirate plane MoC.
>>7272751That's neat. I like the moss and the general aesthetics, also I think fountains are pretty cool too. >>7272780It's the first bookmark I made on this laptop when I got it last year. Fight club inspires me in some weird ways to live the life I live. This is the rest of my bookmark bar thing.
>>7274389I love this double-layer moc design!>>7274390In a dark, ominous world, this post, this picture, this moc is a beacon of light, hope, enJOYment. >>7274453>>7274457>>7274456I need all of these.I'm getting addicted to brickheadz. I own four now and each of them I have enjoyed building so so much, it's a great mix of form and function. I can't explain it well but I love that it has a stock-standard kind of skeleton, with the add-on details that form the character, it's a really enjoyable experience for me and I have loved the pieces in each set so far.
>Lego Movie 1: Let your kids play with your toys Anon!>Lego Movie 2: Oops, your kids ruined your Lego city Anon and now it’s a wasteland and you’ve lost interest. Also, GIRL POWER!What an absolute shit garbage movie series made by, and made for, total idiots. I would even say the new movie builds look like complete trash.
>>7274770Yes, it will work well for your massive fanboy butt hurt.
Question for people who own the octopus piece: Is it rubbery (like the medusa tail)? Or is it regular plastic?
>>7274767>Lego Movie 1: Let your kids play with your toys Anon!>Lego Movie 2: now your kids can build sweet-ass Fury Road mocsHave you tried talking to girls out loud anon
>>7274781Slightly softer plastic, but not rubbery. You can sort of bend the tentacles but they'll bend back.
>>7274697I can't not see a crystal skull.This head piece should've only be used for heads.
>>7274781>>7274787Like the other anon said, it's slightly softer and has more give so the tentacles don't snap off, but it's definitely plastic, not rubber.
>>7274664>Brickheadz as a retail sub-line are dead in 2019what?
>>7274781not rubber like the tires, but definitely softer. Might be the same plastic as is used for plants and some spikes/teeth. It feels slightly harder than those though, but I think that's because it's thicker
>>7274789>This head piece should've only be used for heads.Bit late for that.
>>7274784Stop spending all your time playing with the Friends line Anon. It’s for girls. You’re embarrassing your family. Perhaps Duplo would be more your speed sweetie?
This is the set I'm currently building :) What do you anons think of it?I personally am surprised I purchased it, the bloody moisture thingy won me over, I dnno why, but I have an affinity for these finnicky tech pieces.
>>7274801>terrified to own minidoll sets>too braindead to use Duplo creatively>attempting to troll in the Lego GeneralHopefully the new movie reverses the effects of TLM1 and these faggots take off
>>7274809Massively triggered.Aren’t you full of judgements sweetie.
>Brickheadz are cancelled Good. I think we all know that Brickheadz are for dick heads.
Time to post your Duplo mocs now?
Anyone else just sitting here waiting for Castle to become great again? Fucking nexoknights piss me off. I want a new Castle line that includes civilian life and allows Majisto to return.
>>7274522Nah, I never really planned on moving past the sketch phase with him since it was just a warm up for a different drawing. Still have the files though, maybe I will sometime. I'm planning on doing some finished art of both techic cyborgs, maybe some agents/ultra agents villains, and possibly some life on mars aliens if I can figure out a solid anatomical layout for them. But we'll see how all that goes, I have a lot to work on and these are just for fun.
>>7274522Looks like Shadman
I'm in love with this Duplo engine block piece. I only have two at the moment but I'll probably end up getting some more. Hoverklocki is slightly updated since last posting.
>>7274823>Fucking nexoknights piss me off.>doesn't like fantasy-sci-fi mashup
>>7274823Hated Nexo Knights and I’m so glad it bombed hard. I just want standard Medieval castle stuff too.
>>7274828Duplo made some sneaky good shit while I was being old. They have big masonry bricks and 2x2 trans green bricks with venus flytrap pieces poking out of them that look amazing.
>>7274828>Flying clutchmanHue hue hue hue!
>>7274781Soft plastic, like that green trees. I had a bunch of them, and rays.
>>7274795barbaric figures, they're killing minifigs and using them as coffee brewers.
>>7274841Yes, and the masonry bricks come in the best shade of blue for my purposes
>>7274835Science fantasy is great but Nexo is completely lacking in style
>>7274801Stop spending all your time playing with toys anon. It's for kids. You're embarrassing your family.Perhaps a noose is more your speed sweetie?
Duplo is also great for all the printed pieces
Lots of printed pieces
Time to army build some sharks
>>7274532They made lloyd and master wu from the lego ningago movie
>>7274874Oh shit that's great. Are there more?
>>7274874What the hell is this?!
>>7274828i love hoverklocki
>>7274789Well, who's to say Doctor Strange doesn't possess a dozen crystal skulls and uses them to light his foyer?
>>7274747holy shit i LOVE the engine you did here!
>>7274885>>7274895$3.99 polybags of filler material for your city. There's a plant bag, a food bag, a streetlights/lanterns bag, and I think at least one more kind.>>7274898Me too!I made this out of the Arctic Starter Set a couple months ago. I think it resembles a sea bird.
>>7274874These packs are amazing, I bought one of each of them.> TFW you finally own a bunch of food pieces you've wanted since you where a child
>>7274885>>7274895what >>7274933 saidhttps://www.bricklink.com/catalogList.asp?catType=S&catString=67.518.397They are sold on Lego stores online or physical
>TFW You're browsing Klocki Flickr pages and stumble on a trend that you like but is dead as a door nailFuck it, I'm bringing GARC back.
>>7274941If you do, I will meet your challenge.
>>7274938>>7274795That thing LEGO did for a while of using usual minifigs as kids for the large figs is so goddamn creepy, I don't know why
>>7274933>>7274940I meant if there are more images of new ones, I know what they are.
>>7274944Challenge Accepted.Time for a one-off return of The Galactic Asteroid Rally Circuit!RULES:>Must have 2 crew members per ship (pilot & navigator)>No weapons>Must look FAST :)>The crazier the color scheme the better>Pic Sort-of-Related: Add some Racing Stripes and sponsor decals and ye olde Space Limo could be GARC-worthy IMO
>>7274453>love puppyCute!Reindeer is pretty cute too
>>7274933>I think it resembles a sea bird.Yeah I see a seagull in it.
>>7274676No u.>>7274681I don't follow ecelebs, but was that the eceleb Jang or something? What happen?Also does anyone collect the big ass Star Wars figs? I got first run Vader and of course Lego releases a new Vader with removable helmet. Second time I've been fucked over with them releasing a new Vader set with removable helmet.Anyhoo, kinda tempted to get the speeder bike set or darth maul. But if I get Maul then my autism asks that I should get Kylo and Grevious to complete the sith set. Also Boba Fett looks neet.
>>7274651Too bad he came out in a $15 set with three other bounty hunters.
If you could get all sets released in a given year just like that, which year would you choose and why?For me, it's 1998, first and foremost for Adventurers, but also for Ninja and some Fright Knights.
>>72750182017>Taj Mahal>Millenium Falcon UCS>Assembly Square>Ninjago City>Saturn V>and more>sell everything, buy whatever I want
>>7275018Probably 1979, because lots of Classic Space.
>>7275018>>7275026These are good choices.
>>7275018Would have to be '98 for me as well. The Sphinx set and Pharaoh's Forbidden Ruins are still some of Lego's best
>>7275018After Johnny Thunder, Gail Storm and Charles Lightning went on to discover dinosaurs, India, the Himalayas and China, their fourth companion quit adventuring to become a football player.

>>7274826>maybe some agentsI would love to see that! Slime Face is still among my favourite minifigs
>>7275045Ooh that's real prettyI love glass bulbs with smaller bulbs inside
>>7274941I'll help you!Wanted to build some Garc racers for a while. In fact pic related started out as one of a few of them, but it's the only one that I thought came out well. However I decided it didn't look racer-y, so it never got the excessive sticker treatment
>>7274808I got it for the weird non-canon nature or history of it. I enjoy that sort of thing.
>>7274672>heavily marketed story from Lego I don't remember any story of any theme back in the day. I remember space had some pretty great boxes but that's it.>their own stories and ideas that they made up as kids Yes, definitely. I think that's where my love of Lego lays, in the fiction I created around it. As long as they keep making bricks, I at least, don't care what themes exist.I was being a real bitch this morning, and you gave a solid, well thought out reply to it. I dig your style anon.
New wheel holder piece on the bottom, I think.
>>7275091>MetalBeard's metal beard in a $3.99 polybagVery nice
>>7275075actually anon I also enjoy this type of thing as well, and it was a part of the reason I purchased the set, I jsut haven't found time yet to really delve into the weird non-canon nature or history of it. Do you happen to know any good spots where I can start? I think I read in a review on the lego website where someone wrote... hold on a sec i'll fnid it"As a fan of all things Star Wars, this humble set blew me away. It may seem like an unexpected variation of a standard T-47 Airspeeder, but with the changes to the build and the history here, it’s a collectors dream.First off, this appears to be a nod to the prototype for a Sandspeeder toy that was originally planned by Kenner in the 80’s, albeit with a slightly updated color scheme. Second, anyone watching A New Hope closely will notice this is the first release of John D. Branon’s (Red Four) Helmet in Lego form. Finally, the gunner is sporting what appears to be the helmet Rey wore on Jakku in The Force Awakens.Beyond being a fun and interesting set, the little references make this a set that can be enjoyed by kids and appreciated by collectors. Recommended."

>>7275128Goid set to start. I like it as well and I am not a Sw fan
what is this brick?
>>7275018Late gen Y opinion: If I didn't have so much of it beforehand I'd say 2001. Life on mars, the first wave of Studios, the first wave of Harry Potter, the first wave of Bionicle, tons of old school Star Wars including buildable Technic figures and Phantom menace, Pirates rereleases, [spoiler]Xalax[/spoiler]. However I already own a lot of stuff from that year, so gotta go with 1998 too. Pretty legendary stuff there, the Pharaoh temple set looks fucking awesome.
>>7275119Just get them off bricklink, they're pretty fair-priced
>>7275047are you the same guy who tried to push lego starwars and harry potter generals? stop
>>7275170>Pirates rereleasesBasedTo be honest, all years from 1998 to 2003 were tempting, but 2001 and 2002 didn't have any Adventurers releases.
>>7275180probably not, we're seeing the death throes of /biog/
>>7275146Ya i don;t like a lot of the sw stuff either but some of the clone wars ground vehicles are cool
>>72750181989blacktron , classic pirates , classic town , classic knights, 1988-1992 was the golden age of lego
So my friend bought a knock-off Ghostbusters firehouse for his son from some Chinese website.Has he made a terrible mistake? The kid is only 5 and he’s completely obsessed with Ghostbusters.
>>7275114latest shitI'll take a better pic later.
>>7275217>Has he made a terrible mistake?Depends.Is it compatible with normal Lego?Can you reprint that manual so it actually says Ghostbusters?
mfw tommorow I will have 1000zł ONLY for klocki.SENDING GOOD MONEY ENERGY FOR YOU GUYS <3
>>7275264Thank you, based polack
>>7275214Gotta go with this as well. You can't beat Pirates, Forestmen, and Futuron.>>7275091Man, I hope I can find this. Polybag availability is very random.
>>7275217Eh, a five year old shouldn't care. I hear Lepin works well enough, it's just their technic stuff that's complete shit.
>>7275112Trying to make your way in the galaxy?
>>7275281He's from New Zealand ya cunt
>>7275217>Letting your kid play with and inhale fumes from inferior chink plasticYou should report your friend to the FBI
>>7275284Same thing, except NZ is better
>>7275217He just needs to make sure all the parts are there to avoid any disappointment part way through the build.Other than that I don't think a child would care, no point in spending $100 more when the kid won't notice a difference.
>>7275217Yuh he goofed. Not cause bootlego bricks themselves are bad but because their minifigs are way inferior.
>>7274938>>7274795So the minifigs are babies?no wayAnd what about the baby minifigs? what are they?
Did everyone shit on the modular in the last thread when it came out? I'm looking for people to agree with me so my disappointment is sharedThe garage is good but the monstrosity sitting above it, holy shit. I'm almost considering buying the set and just building the garage a roof
>>7275018>Dr. Lightning is also Johnny's uncle Wait, What?
>>7274436worst minifigs, damn right with the builds.
>>7274320Where can I find repro stickers for old sets guys?
>>7275348I'm not a fan of it either. The garage seems almost completely empty, aside from the 'car area' there's just a counter and some tires. Same with the top floor apartment, there's just so much unused space, which feels even emptier given the minifig selection.The vet's office is literally the only saving grace for me, lots of pretty details and nice divide between the waiting room and office.
>>7275317There're no "bootlego bricks". 90%+ of them are in public domain. Just the recent ones aren't.That's a trademark issue.The minifigs are trademark, so using them in a specific ways breaks the trademark over the minifigs... LEGO has no other trademark for the bricks. Specially because this system was created by Kiddicraft.
>>7275348the reception was pretty lukewarm. Personally I'm going to skip it
>>7275357To be fair, I'm not too interested in the interior as much as I want cool looking exteriors. All of my modulars so far were bought because I loved the look of the building on display. The Diner, Detective Office, Parisian Restaurant, Brick Bank, hell even the Old Fishing Store all have really amazing interiors (especially the Detective's Office IMO), but they don't matter as much. The apartment building above the garage is serviceable, sure, but it doesn't draw me in.
Since we're talking about modulars what do you guys think of the Assembly Square. My girlfriend and I have made it a hobby out of buying a modular a year and building them together, but we skipped the Assembly Square and bought an older modular because of price reasons. However, since it's only like $80 more than the garage but easily 1.5x as valuable, we're thinking about diving in
>>7275018Oh gosh. I didn't have the Mummy sets but I did have the Aztec temple with trap door and skellies.Thanks for this pic. I've been sorting my parts and I forgot which pants go with which torsos as I do have most of those figs.
>>7274984If it helps, Grievous wasn't actually a Sith.
Added some snow and lights for the season.
What are some /lg/ approved Lego Instagrams? I got talked into getting an account after resisting for years, with the promise of people posting lots of cool mocs. I'm struggling to find good people to follow though.Do any of you have any suggestions?
>>7275472Find people on flickr and follow their instagram accounts.
>>7275475Finding people on a different social media is still just finding people myself. I want to know who /lg/ specifically recommends.
>>7275480I'd reccomend this guy for comfy pics
>>7274874This is a perfect addition for the Old Fishing store, and the clamshell piece is perfect for my broken one on my Parisian Testaurant
>>7274453>no more holiday vignettesWell that sucks.>>7275091This however does not suck at all
>>7275473That is comfy as hell. to any more photos?
>>7274874What colour are those two jewel pieces?This is important.
>>7275506Probably trans light-blue
>>7275503not much else worth showin :)
>>7272253Annnnd Detective's Office is gone again! Whew! Brick Bank is still sold out too. Both might be back (Detective's Office has sold out several times since Brick Friday). The latter should definitely be back since the detective is just about out of time. Probably, unless rumors/store employees who talked to anons were wrong.
>>7275587They're both discontinued. They were marked as "retiring soon" before black friday.
>>7275591Glad i got them both recently, the best two modulars in my opinion
>>7275490Can always use blu-tac to fix that m8 I had to do it with mine been fine ever since.
Fierce Creatures was the best spider Lego has ever done change my mind
>>7275221Actually, it reads GRABGTOSTTEAM. So grab some G toast, team.
>>7275591I thought that was the Parisian Restaurant. That the Bank is retiring was surprising people last thread, unless I misread the situation.
>>7275651Someone needs to make some G Toast Team minifigs. Presumably someone who has more baker minifigs then I do.
this is working out better than I expected
>>7275678Germinated toast. Good for the digestive system.
>>7275703>Batman soundtrack intensifies
I was sorting klocki and this just happened.
>>7275067Looks nice, I may try something similar with heads.>>7275072Pretty slick.
Redesigned the torso again so it's less of a stick figure, and also gave it a neck (previously the head sat directly on the shoulders)
>>7275760I'm probably 10 pieces away from calling it 'done'

>>7275647This one is awesome, but they should've used the "eyes" studs.
>>7275799those eyes look really good!what were they originally? The speakers from the Joker car?
>>7275264thx anon u 2
>>7275473>>7275470this is top comfy, anon, nice build :D>>7275591>>7275587a store here in australia had a specific sale on brickbank about two or three weeks ago. I purchased it for $159 AUD. I can't understand why a store would sell the set, right before it becomes discontinued, and at such a big discount (rrp $249 AUD) did lego force them?
>>7275725that's a wonderful neat lil mobile. I like that aesthetic a lot.
>>7275091>would buy multiples>will never ever find because it'll be an american only and discounted only for americans

>>7275296I heard Highschool DxD is banned in New Zealand, so I doubt that
>>7275800no idea, but I guess they didn't exist, when they released that set
is the designer of this a genius
>>7276304I also was impresed by this.
>>7276307it just blew my mind
>>7276304The new Modular only have one cool build. PIC related
>>7276315Is that a new piece??
>>7276349I think windshields.>>7276304What is this?
>>7276351No I mean the grey 1x1 next to those curved slopes.
>>7276367They‘ve been in unikitty sets before
This is a great set for the money
>>7276372>check slopes category>not there>search for unikitty minifigs>not there>search for unikitty sets>not therei give up, where did the retards running bricklink list them?
>>7276388They listed them under slopes. It‘s above the 1x1 pyramid
>>7276396yeah, I found them right after that post, I'm retarded
Last few days were a bit shit, but this is great
Day 6This build is actually kind of creative. I like it
>>7276401I had to look twice too, thought they were the 2x2 version at first
>>7276402>>7276403I wish that claw/fork was translucent.
>>7276351it's the counter in the brick bank
>>7275651no, it reads grabgoatseteam
>>7276463Now you're just being silly.
Is the blue part on the head print or is it a double colored mold?
>>7276006but that's a fact

>>7275703It's looking good anon.Mine on the other hand looks like a Yellow & Black 90's spaceship with 33 degree 2x3 slopes EVERYWHERE.>[toyler]Also, my dad got upset with me taking apart a couple of dusty old mocs I haven't touched in years because I need the parts for this little GARC challenge...[/toyler]
>>7275099You basically got it all. Maybe search for T-47 on Wookiepedia and look up related models. There should be one or two airspeeders with different color. I think a T-38 was used by Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan in a comic miniseries in the early 00s. West End RPG Sourcebooks also have a lot of fluff text where the idea of non-Snow variants came first into canon since those Kenner toys were never really canon.
Found the TLM2 MetalBeard polybag at Walmart. Also had the Emmett and Wildstyle cases.
went to toys r us to spend 100$ on family gift cards for xmas.spent 220$; naughty boy :P
>>7276754>>7276753>>7276747What set, that looks really good!>>7276883[spoiler] pls don't tell me you cannabalized your dads mocs anon, even if you're underaged i too find it precious when family makes sure i take pictures of stuff i build before changing anything[/spoiler]
>>7276747that's awesome>>7277014Looks like the Water Strider.
Almost got this set today but it's 170$ canadian for 1200 pieces, and desu it doesn't look that great.. I like the idea of it, lots of little things I can build over time as I get the urge, add to my modular experts.. but desu the buildings suck. One is just glass, the hotel doesn't really even have rooms or anything. I think itd look shitty next to my expert modulars. I like the vehicles and subway and the idea though.I got a racecar pack with a dodge challenger instead
>>7277030I'm the complete opposite of you, all of that set is useful anywhere else in your city if you know what you're looking for. The glass museum can be enlarged with the museum break-in and a $25 Bricklink order. The hotel is really where it's at though, as I have a plan to make it better then the grand emporium, but that's just me. As to the new garage modular I'll be the first to say that not only do I not like it, I'm kinda super sick of the old "Americana" aesthetic in these sets, I don't think it'd kill them to do one modernized set.
>>7277052I should say, when I say it doesnt look that great, I mean as a value. 170$ for 1200 pieces is a bad value, when I can get assembly square for 4000 pieces. This is half the cost of that.Otherwise, it does look like it has nice stuff. And it'd really flesh out my city..Fuck now im tempted again.
>>7277055>>7277052Except the exhibition museum. I dont like that part.
>>7277030>>7277055It's a very good city booster pack, but should be good value for the money to properly fill that purpose. I myself got an earlier, similar set at a huge discount, and it works well as both a parts pack and a good supplement to city building in general. This is a recent set, so wait a while and it might end up on clearance.
>>7277030>reuse Emmet's car as an electricCute.
>>7276402Did you do an in bag build you madman? I have to give them credit that is a brilliant build.
>>7277079It happens more often than you'd think. Or not.
>>7277030>I got a racecar pack with a dodge challenger insteadyou whatNew Speed Champions? those are out?
>>7277110Yeah they had a bunch at my Toys R Us (Canada)
>>7277114aren't those the new 2019 sets? gotta check out my local toys R Us here aswell. really want the mini cooper set
>>7277094>Did you do an in bag build you madman?yeah, the plan is to build everything inside it's bag and then open them all on christmas.It's been really fun, especially since the builds have been getting consistently more challenging with bigger pieces and more clip connections. Minifigs are pretty boring though
>>7277124>Roseinto the trash it goes(the vehicles look cool though)
>>7277124wish i thought of this from the start, seems like a pretty fun challenge
>>7277114cool. Seems I need to check stores around me more regularly now. German Lego stores have put the Marvel stuff on shelf (thanks for the tip from the other anon), but they don't have anything else yet
>>7277128I dislike her as well, but as a minifig she's great. New unique hair piece, new generic female face and a nice generic sci-fi body
What should I build next, the Republic Tank I got on sale, or the Dodge Challenger from my speed champions set.Decide my fate
>>7277138Dodge challenger, be one of the first to build it
>>7277145Deal. Will post pics soon of the gang
>>7277100>that toy heli Cute!>that brick dogYikes!
wish lego got some jap licenses for speed champion, i crave for a few ricers for my city.
>>7277153Same, I'd kill for just one Toyota
i wonder what the chances of lego getting asian car licenses would be?
The Challenger can have the engine that sticks out or a flat hood. bretty cool
>>7277157Good luck. Toyota seem to be playing cunts with their license these days.
>>7277200I really like the challenger's engine. pretty smart parts usage

>>7277378i'm building my brick bank comfy in bed and it's nice.
>>7277378I'm working on a GARC spaceship and I think I've figured out what to do with it as far as the shape goes. I just need to build it and take pictures of all of the other old stuff I had made before I dismantle them to make it.

>>7277432That guy was my first minifig. He was from a tiny set, I can't remember much, but it must have been released in the mid-90's.
>>7277440there was one with him and a croc and a chair/throne
>>7277440was is the throne?

>>7277464>Am i the only one strangely creeped out by these?Well maybe this one will be more your style[energetic kettle drums]THE TALE OF LU BAN'S PUPPET
>>7277464Are you? Wait til you see the kids!
>>7277378Years ago I made minifigs of my brother and his wife and gave them to them as a gift. Now they did not know about the CMF series so they had no clue how many different face and torso prints there were. My sister-in-law was the easiest. I just got a babysitter minifig and changed out the hair piece. She has a sweet disposition so the face matched with her and she also loves unique t-shirts so the pug with glasses is something she would wear if it was a real shirt. Plus they have a young son so the baby piece fit too. It all started though because I realized the Samurai from series 1 had a face just like my brother. Same facial hair and serious look. He is really a fun guy but somehow his face or bone structure gives him a naturally severe look. I even gave them three Friends pugs because they had three pugs of their own at that time. I also gave my other brother a Gamer Guy minifig because we both agreed it was like he was looking in a tiny lego mirror. Just changed the torso to that DJ shirt since his college degree was in "post-production sound design." and swapped out the controller for a microphone. I also updated my nephew by making a short minifig with a ball. Seriously this kid thinks any kind of ball is the best toy ever. This Thanksgiving I finally got pics of all the minifigs of my family that I made together in one place. Also did, me, my brothers, and sister-in-law in matching mandalorian armor and posed like some kind of recruitment poster.
>>7277494>This Thanksgiving I finally got pics of all the minifigs of my family that I made together in one place. Also did, me, my brothers, and sister-in-law in matching mandalorian armor and posed like some kind of recruitment poster.Post 'em!
>>7277488Great stuff honestly!!
>>7277499Okay. Here is the recruitment one.
>>7277499And here is one of all of us lined up holding the helmets. Just thought it would look cool. Also for some reason I didn't think to take my brother's pug off his stand in these.So it's my youngest brother on the left, me in the glasses next to him, my other brother and his wife on the right.
>>7277525>>7277528Very cute anon
Thread's in autosagePost weebshit
>>7277540How about two-fisted American pulp
>>7277543That is nice.
Where does one find ideas or inspiration to build a Napoleonic Wars era ship MOC?
I really like the drag style of the charger leak. But like the anon with the Daytona, i went the old school Nascar vibe
>>7277535thanks. and here is a shot of all of us as regular minifigs. I tried to capture intrests and other traits in these figs. My youngest brother like I said majored in Sound Desgin in college so the headphones, shirt, and microphone all try to convay that. I'm a truck driver and a bit heavy so I went with a head with glasses and a headset and since tropical shirts are associated with fat guys it seemed like a good match. The scepture is actually like one I made, just cut a cane short that was topped with a dragon claw holding a glass orb. Thought it would look cool. And I already explained my other brother and his wife and son.
>>7277552If your post didn't say otherwise, I could have sworn that the cane piece was from the LOTR Mines of Moria set.
>>7277552Good taste in carts
>>7277200Wow it's out already.. Hey buddy, could I request a rear photo of the charger, dying to know how close I was on getting the back right..>>7277550Mr Daytona here, I am changing the colours to the Buddy Baker's record breaker #88 blue white daytona nascar, I just don't have the bricks right now I need to bricklink it all. Money is tight, christmas is near.
>>7277694Oh lord jesus I just looked up the lego site, saw the charger pics are on there... got to the rear died inside X_X SO UGLY almost no effort made into get the lights right.. think i'll stick with the rear I made
>>7277694Are there blue wheels? It will still look good on black, but blue would be legit.Poor excuse for an elephant engine right now, but it takes time. For such a big engine bay I ran out of room fast.
>>7277707Yeah unfortunately there aren't blue wheels, that was the immediate problem i ran into, aswell as a few key structure parts not being blue. Im honestly considering just taking some hubcaps and airbrushing them blue, for a placeholder at least
>>7277697I'd be curious to find out why they chose '70.I couldn't find a good look, so I built the easier round taillights of the previous years. This is still very much a wip
>>7277716Still looks better than their abortion rear end.. Honestly dont know what the designers were doing.. it looks nothing like it should
>>7277719At least we can moc our own lights.These tires, whether prints or stickers, is awful. Did Goodyear not agree to a license?
>>7277741They probably didnt even approach them for just one part, man I want the stickers from that car though, just the side window netting, going to be going on soooooo many of my cars lol. My shelby daytona is screaming for it
>>7277743Id prefer they just left the sidewalls blank, like they did for F1, WEC, and GT3. A Nascar not on eagles, c'mon Lego. Window nets are a good addition though for sure.
>>7277750Never fear, we get 2 blank wall hubs in the charger pack, so they'll be on bricklink within time.It's a real fkn shame they didn't make the demons stickers transparent. I dont know wtf they made it yellow either. Seems like a real marketing ploy from Lego at times, Camaro release had the recent camaro in red, INSTEAD of yellow to match up with transformers bumblebee, now this demon in yellow, not in red, with yellow stickers, such a waste zzzzzzz
>>7277743Arent the front windows always printed on these? It was in one Ive Got
>>7277731Good set but way overpriced compared to other big sets. Shoukd have at least 2 more figures
>>7277808>transparent stickersReally terrible. Almost fucked up my Mercedes AMG because of those monsters. Hopefully never used again in the line.>>7277917Same Mercedes also had a sticker on the windshield.
>>7277927How did you almost fuck it up with the transparent stickers? It's because of those stickers I was able to get a orange bugatti instead of the standard blue, I have another set for one day maybe do it in gold.
>>7277918I got it because it's cool, fits my micro fighter army with the first order star destroyer I got 70$ off, and the pieces are really good.. lots of black and red pieces that can be used to make spaceships if I ever decide to MOC instead of just building sets and then wanting more sets to buy
>>7275018>>7275170>>7275214>>7277465These are good, personally i would say 2006 and 2009. 1998-2003 for nostalgia.
>>7277956Also, i was born in march of 95, am i a millenial or zoomer? I grew up with my older brothers and cousins and mostly was following them in trends and interests though.
>>7277958i'd say milennial. although you might technically be a zoomer, i'd say the oldest people i'd consider zoomers would be 20 atm
>>7277980I'm almost 24
>>7277982yeah i'd definitely say milennial.
>>7277983I rather be young, i'm really getting old mentally, shiieet, what can you do tho.
>>7277985you're exactly on the limit, but still generations matter so little. it's more up too what you care about/grew up with
>>7277985Please don't say you're getting old mentally when1. You're on 4chan2. You're on the toy board3. You're on the lego threadI'm here too. I'm not judging. But let's be honest : )
>>7278011Well, i'm working and want to have wife and kids but understand that i can't in my current situation and i need a girl anyways, i didn't for that before that much. And it's been a long time since i played with lego or at least showed interest, i mostly care when the new sets are being shown just to get interested, but last time i bought something, was architecture and mixels in 2014. Plus, zoomers only care about phones and cloud rappers.
>>7278015*didn't careI'm russian btw
>>7278015>cloud rappersThat sounds kinda cool, actually.
>check to see if my package is out for delivery, that was supposed to arrive wed, even though it was delayed to next monday>it was delayed again until tuesdayfuckyou
>>7278023Good for you zoomer or boomer with middle life crisis.
>>7278028What did you order? I don't care for lego that much nowadays, but think of buying pirates from 2015 and arctic and jungle of this or last year or whatever that was.
>>7278032I ordered>>7277731Vader's CastleI just want something to build. It seems cool. Good pieces of the style I like.I would have got brick bank but it's sold out everywhereMaybe I shoulda got Diner instead though. I'll get that next. Or assembly square if I want to splurge, depends how my job continues to go.
Day 7Another nice build
>>7278038Vader’s castle should have just been legos idea, it such a dumb thing to exist even in star wars universe. Darth vader’s dark lava castle, wow such a serious movie that was.
Okay so hear me out guys, you know how the last pirates line flopped so it might not be commercially viable for Lego to make entire lines of unlicensed classic themes old fans want? So how about a "adventure island" type line? You could have castaways survival, pirate hideouts, dinosaurs, Indiana Jo- I mean, Johnny Thunder-type ancient ruins, sunken city underwater. etc. Basically it would integrate a lot of different classic themes at a smaller scale.Thoughts?
>>7278093It's a good idea, but I bet they'd still complain it's too modern and not classic enough.
>>7278093Already existskind of
>>7277548Watch movies, read picture books about the ships. Also[Honk]
>>7278093nooooooo fuck that they'd make it fantasy and the one ship that would come with it would be ridiculous.t. stuck in Pirates I imperial armada phase
>>7278093I could definitely see that working. I'm actually really digging the idea the more I think about it. The adventure plus the open ended concept could really work well.
>>7278143What do you mean making it fantasy? Pirate fiction is far from reality regardless. It's just that you would just get a ship and a little treasure cove rather than imperial forts.>>7278093I love it, hell you could even throw aliens into it.Its a shame Lego wouldnt have the balls to make savage natives or like a world war 2 secret base.
currently still building brick bankabout halfway thrureally enjoying iti've also been thinkin of the anon who wanted to buy brick bank whilst i've been building and i'm hoping that anon will find a good deal sometime soon
>>7278161love brick bank, especially the office/washroom part, they're so comfy
>>7278156>it's a shame Lego won't shoot themselves in the foot on my behalf
>>7278167my favourite things so far have been the bank teller counter and the fantastic washing machine money laundering part haha. I remember when brick bank was released a few anons mentioned the money laundering thign and it's a great little nuance, and it's been wonderful to see it/build it irl

>>7278280haha didn't notice that anon
>>7278161Thanks anon, I hope I can get it soon. Still seems sold out everywhere, and actually sold out, not on back order like the Diner.I might have to either buy an ebay one while they're still somewhat reasonable or hope I get lucky.But If I'm gunna spend 325$+ I might as well just get Assembly Square. But.. A dentist office? Nowhere near as exciting

In this weeks episode of "i have no idea what the fuck i am doing but might as well finish it" we finally begin work on Patlabors upper body.
Fluffy question: If you could design a modular building, what era would you set it in and what would the three floors consist of?For me, I'd have to pick 90s with a record store on the ground floor, book store on the first floor and grunge-looking apartment on the top.
>tfw no milf gf to buy me lego
>>7278316Can I pick Castle?
>>7278316Victorian era. Ground floor: furniture store. Second story: clothing store. Top floor: sweat shop.
>>7278324Fuck it, today you can
>>7278316Hmm... Would an updated, detailed-to-all-hell take on pic related count?
started getting into legos again. im 27 btw. eventho im crap at it, its incredibly satisfying and fun to build something
>>7278316>>7278324A large gatehouse with square floor section, where the modular option is to add walls around a settlement, not unlike the idea from the 2013 line but on a much larger scale.First floor is a gate through which people, horses and wagons may pass, including drawbridge and portcullis. To one of the sides is a room where you can take people to the side for whatever reason before they are allowed to proceed.The second floor is a living area for guards, with a room with a few bunk beds, a living room with a fireplace and games, and some kind of pantry or kitchen area.Third floor, armoury, quite a lot of weapons and other appropriate things. There is also access to the roof, from which guards can shoot arrows and other nasty stuff on whoever tries to get through without permission.This is not overly detailed but now I kind of want to build something like this. I probably don't have enough pieces, but what the hell.
>>7278341very cute, anon
>>7278341I got back into Legos when I was 26. Just keep building stuff and you'll keep improving.If you get ambitious, you should look up some advanced techniques so you can move beyond simply stacking pieces.

Why doesn't Lego just do a Steampunk theme already? Preferably with a Western take since we haven't had the Cowboy theme in a long time.
>>7278696Monster Hunters was steampunk-ish, we all saw how that went
>>7278703Monster Fighters* rather
I'll be honest, I've never been a huge fan of neither Ninjago or Nexo Knights, especially Nexo Knights. Just...why? Lately though the Asian aesthetic of some sets really appeals to me, I might if nothing else get a few of the cheaper sets, like city chase or some of the TLNM sets that seem to be dropping in price faster than I can keep up with. Nexo though I just really want to like, but just don't. Some of their sets are rock bottom priced but I just can't justify pulling the trigger on Nexo when Ninjago has a more useful parts to aesthetic for me. Life is damning, then you make the wrong choice and somehow make things worse.>TL;DR Of Nexo or Ninjago which would you choose for 2018 /LG/?
>>7278187Sorting out parts from my collection to build a Cafe Corner
This mural, along with a comfy holiday display, was set up in downtown Toronto when I was visiting earlier this week. Apparently the whole thing was built by the public, though I don't know how. It was larger than life though, definitely worth seeing. The use of those new-ish triangular pieces to make the picture change depending on the angle was particularly ingenuitive.
>>7278750Gotta have that Canadian wildlife. I would've got more close ups but there was a guy roaming around right in front in one of those blow-up t-rex costumes.
>>7278750This is my only picture of the holiday display that came out properly. It featured a chimney with stockings and gifts and this fella.

>>7278696Better yet, why doesn't lego do a cyberpunk theme already?
>>7278777Personally I'd say Space Police III and Ninjago City match cyberpunk pretty well
>>7278333I wouldn't buy it. But I'd buy an architecture of pic related.Sweet trips btw
>>7278782SP3 was more like Space City, there was even an ATM on a little floating asteroid.Ninjago City is a good start, but needs more cyber. and more punk.
It's too bad I hate ninja stuff, Ninjago city looks awesome.
>>7278966It's hardly even related to the ninja aside from the figs, it's just a neo-Tokyo block
I want to buy a lego train set so bad but I just don't have the room for it
>>7278696>Why doesn't Lego just do a Steampunk theme already? Preferably with a Western take since we haven't had the Cowboy theme in a long time.Reposting my bounty huntin' gals and their rogues' galleryFrom left, Jane Stackerton, daughter of the famous Sheriff Sam Stackerton who was famously killed by outlaws that have yet to be apprehended. She loves a good fight, and that custom steamrifle she's toting can famously drop a Friends beetle at a hundred baseplates. Jane's the reason they're all together, as she's brought her one-woman war on crime to the uncharted regions of the New West.Next is the inestimably ingenious Winnifred Corkley, inventrix and inspired inheritor of the Corkley family investments. Winnie was only too happy to join up with Jane on her quest for justice, as this gives her a perfect chance to field-test all her most outlandish ideas!That exotic beauty is Ling-Sue, a deadly beauty with the pneumatikatana whose beauty hides her deadly skills! Also she helps out when they're running a con that requires two sexy girls.The best is best saved for last, so behold the bodacious beauty of Belle d'Bustier, a bountiful bait of benefit whenever that most base of biddings must be brought to bear. She has big boobies.
And here is their transportation, s a high-speed off-road contraption that Winnie calls a horseless steamcarriage.
Well, when Jane and her girls finally bagged Pollo Loco, they thought they'd taken care of the trouble in the territories, but as it would turn out, their problems were just beginning...
It seemed that he was the younger brother to the real leader of the banditos, and Pollo Enojado wasn't going to let this insult to his family stand. Even if he couldn't stand his little brother, he hated law and order even more.
Of course, once the governor of the territories got wind of what Jane was up to, he started sweating like a snowball in a forest fire. After all, if those ladies were prying into the criminal world, it wouldn't be too long before they figured out what he was up to.That's when the Governor put out the call to the worst cut-throats, cut-purses, and cut-rate killers he could find...
The Carter clan. A bunch of half-breed hucksters, they seemed to have heavy helping of hoodoo wherever they turned up... and wherever they were, somebody usually turned up dead.
To make matters worse, all that dust Jane and her girls was kicking up was bad for business as far as the head of the criminal underworld around these parts was concerned, and Madam Rouge was always one to live by the adage, "If you want a job done right, do it yourself."
And that's the characters and vehicle that I put together one Sunday afternoon for a thread challengeHere they are with characters from an unrelated scenario set in the same vicinity
Guys, what's a good way to sort my klocki? I've only got a few christmas sets and want to make it easier to manage considering I'll only have them out once a year
>>7278782There's a difference between sci-fi and cyberpunk.
Brick Bank is back in stock (well, backorder, shipping in 2 weeks)Yaaaay!
>>7278703Lego Monster Hunter when??
>>7278924Coincidentally Ninjago city also has an ATM
Ordered my Brick Bank on backorder. So happy I was able to get it. Now to get Diner and Assembly Square before they run out, but I'll get those in 3 and 6 months or something.I love the modulars!
>>7279003>katana with pressure gauge
>>7279065Well if you build stuff regurarly then get something like >>7279078.If not and you only have a couple of containers then, separate by size first. Specifically sort out the small pieces that always diappear in the pile.Then go by type like bricks, plates, techinc, minifigs, etc.Sorting by colour while looks neat isn't really important.If you can't separate them into different container then.Connect the same kind of pieces. Only do it with parts that you can easily take apart, like the smaller bricks or slopes. Or connect them on the edges.Put your pins into a long technic brick. Put your pieces with an axle hole like cogs on a long axle.Don't take everything apart unless you like to build them from the start.
I THINK CORNER GARAGE SUCKSI know this isn't a new opinion, but still. A vet clinic... on top of a garage? I dunno. There's one set a year so it's kinda disappointing. At least I still have other modulars to catch up on..
>>7279142I agree. I had been anxiously awaiting the modular for 2019 only to be let down. The diner was nice. I enjoyed the build and colors. I have most of the other modular and have modified to my liking. I'll end up getting the garage, building it to say I built it, and then modding it to my liking.
>>7279181>>7279181Oh and the $200 price tag??? I see this as a trend of all modular buildings being this price or higher moving forward. Think about it 5 modular buildings is a grand.I'm glad I buy used in bulk and build my own stuff.(I'm the winter city-builder and soon will be "Back on the Brick") Hope everyone had a good summer.
Day 8Nobody wanted this. Stop giving us generic battledroids every year
Went to my local toy shop to look for the new sets, but like the lego store they only had the marvel stuff. I did however see these knockoff baseplates. Seemed decent quality and what i really liked is that they were actually a plate thick, unless the ones from lego. It‘s cut off, but at the bottom they had 4-packs and one of them even had transparent plates (clear, red, blue, green I think)
>>7279254Fucking phonesOh and they are 32x32, even though it says 10x10 on the packaging
Lads, I need help.Can buy pic related for 60 bucks. Is it worth it?
>>7279230Not gonna lie, I kind of wanted this...
>>7279259I‘d say yes, but I‘m very biased, since the original is one of my all time favourite mocs.It‘s full of great greebling parts, a fun build and two cool minifigs.Gets a robotortoise/10 from me
>>7279262Is it....fun to play with? I don't just wanna pose.
>>7279265yeah, they Lego made an effort to make it much more stable than the original when they redesigned it. The only parts that might pop off when playing are the different "antennas" on top. The elbows could have a bit more range, but everything else is pretty great. It's also the perfect base to make modified designs or maybe different weapon attachments for the arms
>>7279258It always amazes me that LEGO allows this in retail stores.You can clearly see the LEGO branded plates in the background. I'd say if the price is right, buy them and see how they work out. What store is this? I'd be interested in getting some myself if close or a chain.
>>7279287>What store is this?It's an independent store in Germany, so you'll probably have to look online for "strictly Bricks".I'll probably get some next time I visit, I wanted to get the transparent ones, but they were much more expensive than the others and I didn't have time to check out all the colours in the single packs.I was quite surprised to find them in the store, as I said they are independent, but they seem to have quite a good relation with Lego, they've often gotten sets really early, some exclusive stuff and have often been part of some "Lego tours" where a truck comes by and there's some little attractions for children (I still remember the giant bouncy house Sentai mountain...)
>>7279265seconding >>7279280It's a really nice set. IMO the best mech Lego's ever made. It's the only set I never tore down for parts, I just keep modifying it a little at a time, adding guns and jump jets and stuff.
>>727925810 inch by 10 inch, dumbass.
>>7279323Are those the measurements for 32x32 plates? I wouldn't know and it doesn't make much sense to advertise them that way in a German shop, especially to children.
>>7279303Ahh cool. Yea a google here in the states didn't net me any local finds for "Strictly Bricks"Thanks for the follow up though.I just bought a box of used LEGO weighing about 20 lbs. for $30 and for once it was all LEGO with only a few other toys mixed in but no Mega or other knockoffs. Sitting on top was a the Technic Crane set #8289 intact but built as the alternate. The spare bricks were in a Ziploc bag though along with all of the original instructions so I'll probably sell that off as I don't do Technic and already have a ton of those parts from various lots I've bought.Also in this box was some Harry Potter, Castle Stuff, and Elves along with a ton of common brick. (Which isn't so common these days in regular sets.)
>>7279356Here's the pic for the win.
>>7279331Yes. Did a quick math and it should be compatible with your lego.
>>7279360Yea. I'm looking at a few other lots really reasonable too but it's a bit of a drive to get them. I've been spoiled by a lot of local finds lately. I'm going to have a hell of a time sorting. But eh, what a problem to have!
>>7279108>katana with pressure gaugeIt's a pneumatikatana!
>>7279386The bad guys have a severe lack of steampunk weaponry.
>>7279280My personal experience is it has a lot of finicky bits that love to fall off and are hard to get back into place without accidentally popping out more stuff. Especially the gdamn shoulder pieces! Still I enjoy it a lot (though I rarely use it for displays). I love the figs, though, and that roboturt is the best. I built three more and plan on building others. There was a thread quite some time ago when /lg/ talked about them. I think someone posted a moc for an M-Tron verison and we were talking about others we could make. I think my favorite was the clear parts to make a stealth version. Obviously not 100% possible since some of those parts just don't come in clear.I do love this version with the minigun.
>>7279409>Especially the gdamn shoulder pieces!YESIIRC Lego used an ancient parts mold for the robot arms there, so they ended up really loose. I replaced the whole assembly with these, which actually stay in place and look better:https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=44676#T=C
