Can someone explain how Rex Dangervest ends up being the bad guy? In all his sets he seems to be allied with emmet. Is emmet a bad guy too?
>>7383473He literally IS Emmet. A bitter violent future Emmet driven by the desire to be badass because he believes him not being badass enough in the present/past was what made everything worse in the future, when it was in fact Wildstyle who was too hotheaded when Queen whatsername sued for peace.
>>7383473He’s not the bad guy. Just misguided
>>7383473Watch the movie.
Rex did nothing wrong. The filmakers went woke, they should leave politics out of the childrens commercials

So, I've finished the last mech in my project, which is Zane's. I used the original studshooter as inspiration on the body to make him big cannons on the side of its head like a Guncannon. The most important point for me was to downscale it to more or less the same scale as the other while keeping the complete mech feel the original had, with the head and everything, which meant having the figure fit inside the body entirely.
This one was a bit different since I don't have the original set so I only worked from the LDD model I've made. At first I wanted to get rid of the blades on the arms since I want the discs on the shoulder to be the primary blade weapon (which detatch and fit into the hands) but I kept them anyway, since I can remove them easily if they don't work well IRL.
And this is what I've been waiting for since I've begun doing these. Yes, this isn't made out of real bricks yet, but I'm pretty happy to say that I'm more or less finished with this project (or am I ?).
>>7383794Congratulations, You Are The 1,000,000th Person To Point This Out!
>>7383548Aaaand Lego's shit-tastic quality strikes again since I noticed during disassembly that the two 1x2 plates with slope developed cracks.Must be a new record since I bought that set just last week.
>>7383798Whats wrong with her?
>>7383798point what out?
>>7383763>>7383768>>7383772This is my favorite out of the group.Now to make them combine!
>>7383859Oh shit!What happened?
>>7383873The same shit that's been going on for years by now.
>>7383873The middle head is an official Lego head; the left head is a third-party head that was produced and sold as replacements because Lego doesn't put down a white primer before printing on dark pieces, so the printing always looks bad.
>>7383859>implying I'm supposed to know what this Zoomer character looks like.
Paid 60$ for this at mardens. Probably a rip-off. Hopefully the stickers aren't ruined
>>7383980What the fuck has it been sitting on to get the bottom of the box to bend like that?
>>7383887This one was a huge disappointment for me. I love that fig
>>7383980>236 pieces>60 dollarsYou're not too good at math, I take it.
>>7383983Water damage. The pieces are all in good condition though. The stickers are a bit sketchy
>>7383980According to Brickset, it retailed for $29.99 in 2008So a water-damaged set has been marked up to double its original price
>>7383980>Probably a rip-offThat's definitely a rip-off, it isn't even worth $10
>>7384002>>7383980Just don't eat them anon! They are made out of plastic and not easy to digest.
>>7383980>Probably a rip-offCheapest one on BL right now is like 55 and that's without shipping, so it's not all bad. That water damage sucks though, should've haggled it down.
Finished it. The stickers all worked fine. The instructions were pretty ruined
>>7384130I'm actually envious of those train doors.
>>7384130The Sponge sets are some of the comfiest shit
>>7384130That set looks p nice anon
Made my first Transformer based on a pre-existing character, Hearts of Steel Megatron
>>7384189not super stable, but I'm happy with how well I was able to recreate the colours and especially that I actually managed to make the gun have a telescope function
>>7384189>>7384190Nice jobGood use of those angled tiles
>>7384189Although on closer inspection I have to deduct points because that Technic pin is an illegal connection on both ends (not like it matters)
So one of the stingy local op shops marks up old Lego lots 1000%. Father and I bought a very expensive lot of Lego, probably paid it's top value but it's fun to sort, resell and keep minifigures from it.Now the last lot had a large number of gray panels and two Imperial Guard heads. That and a rather rare technic joint indicated it was part of the Star Destroyer.Fast forward a few months and while I'm on holiday I get an email from Dad saying he bought me another big bulk lot from the same op shop. Sends me a photo of a black R2D2 and straight away I guess it's the other half of the shit I already sold off. Then I see a photo of the escape pod the minifigure is inside. FUAAAARRRRKKKK
>>7384248Thanks, and yeah, I try to only use legal connections, but I had no better idea on how to make the cannon elongate other than using a bar and that was just too thin. (I thought about using the rod from pic related, but that would have been incredibly tight)
>>7383517Nah you're wrong
>>7384389Bianca is a fucking slut
>>7384301I got that piece in a brick bundle the other day. Might have another somewhere, too. Do you live in the UK? Might be able to help you out, for the price of postage.
I just got back from TLM 2 lads, really damn good film. I'd like to buy something to celebrate.
I love how this sub likes to conveniently pretend like Brick link isn't also ruined by (( RESELLERS ))
>>7384498Also literally this is the sale pageThats about one sale about every 46 days. They still try to list it like it actually sells for over 100 lmfao what IQ do some of these bricklink (( RESELLERS )) have
>>7384457thanks, that's super kind, but I've already got a few, although they are stuck in other pieces. That's why I said they're super tight, they tend to get stuck and it would make the transformation a super annoying process everytime
>>7384497>really damn good film
>>7384524Brickfilm? I'm being serious in any case, this movie was the first one I actually wanted to go and see in theaters in years.
>>7384498>>7384514To bring this into perspective on why these bricklink resellers have no idea how markets work. You could be one of 6 people to list this set for about 100 and after 6 yes 6 fucking months you could still not have a sale. Thats six months of opportunity cost actually cost you more than if you were to list it for a much cheaper price. And the longer you wait the more the opportunity cost starts to increase. These people literally do not even understand how markets or sales work they just look at this bricklink sale page see 2 or 3 people sold it for this outrageous price the last six months and suddenly they think they are sitting on the next best investment. Lego is not a fucking investment. There is no liquidity and no buyers.
>>7384539>>7384514>>7384498t. salty poorfagIf you don't want it, don't buy it
>>7384498I thought griping about """Lucky""" Ed's was a pastime?
You know what I would buy a dozen of? One of those 'Classic' boxes of basic bricks, but only in really boring colors. Brown, light gray, greens etc. Sick of the silly prices for shit as basic as 1x4 bricks in neutral tones on BL.
>>7384578I really wish Lego's PAB wall would carry more 1x4 and 1x6 bricks. All they ever seem to have is 2x4 and 2x6. I recently stocked up with 70 white 2x4 bricks (among other things) because as you said the prices are annoyingly high and quantities are sometimes hard to find in a single store.
>>7384556Drink acetone, hawker!
When will Lego make the Couch Mech? I really want it now after seeing the movie yesterday
>>7384556Literally only four people want it haha
>>7384588I'm pro-abortion because it would have meant not having to put up with your posts.
settled on a "dinosaur tail end section" for mickey's tail
>>7384612I hope the irony of posting Stefan Molyneux isn't lost on you.
>>7384669That's cool. Would have bought Brickheads if they looked more like this.
>>7384664I think he's the same guy who is calling a little girl a slut
>>7383835This fills me with anger
>>7383835they are losing a lot of sales in their biggest marketChina to home competitors like lepin and enlightened. They are also dropping employes and using cheaper material to help boost profit margins since they dropped off after 2016ish and never recovered
WHY THE FUCK DO ALL THE CLIPS KEEP BREAKING!?
>>7384819I want to finish my city and continue adding too it but I may have to find a new hobby.
>>7384835Here is a graph of Lego revenue note this is just revenueThey peaked in 2016 and in 2017 they dipped to under 2015 levels. Why you probably saw all the lay offs, change in material, etc
>>7384828Someone should tell Pjotr the definition of insanity.
>>7384853>profits dip 1%>lay off half your work forcewhy do companies do this?
>>7384882Someone should hire you as a shill.
>>7384895Gotta maintain that unprecedented growth in sales
>>7384895A lot of people forget companies have debt even some of the most profitable companies have debt like Apple, Microsoft, etc.At the start of the graph 2003 Lego made some money yes but they also had 800 million in debt. When revenue goes up they still have debt but they forward guide for more growth and hire new workers, restructure, and take out even more debt since they are getting increasing sales and revenue. When revenue goes down suddenly all those changes have to be reveresed as they are making less money, sales down, and they still have to pay their debts and the new debt they took on when they were growing.
>>7384498>>7384514>>7384539Hello, thank you for your blog post explaining how you don't understand the buying and selling of goods. They have a discontinued product that there will never be more NIB sets made, but will be consumed. If they are comfortable listing it for more than you consider it worth that is their decision. They may not be motivated to sell NOW because they aren't investors (or at least good ones) that mind the capital being tied up. Their hope may be that supply whittles down as other people get low balled and they suddenly have one of the handful of NIB sets years after release. It is a collector's item and they enjoy having it collected, but will sell it if you over pay.If you message them they might be willing to lower their price, especially if you provide evidence to support your opinion of the worth of that set. Complaining about people being irrational on the internet just isn't rational, and I, for one, would like to issue a complaint.
Love this fig
>>7384828>Brown is the color that causes all the problemsWhat did Lego mean by this?
>>7384916>They hope that supply wittles down. You know Lego literally made thousands of Spongebob sets not just 100 they had to supply ToysRus back when they operated in the US.>Their hope may be that supply whittles down as other people get low balled and they suddenly have one of the handful of NIB sets years after releaseOnce again there are plenty of boxed spongebob sets still released. No one really cares the theme stopped selling around 2012 and sales weren’t great for the theme.>its a collectors itemLego spongebob set a collectors item. Your arguing Lego spongebob sets are a collectors item? Its was never even a popular Lego theme like Star Wars, Creators Expert, etc.Once again 4 sales in half a year no one is interested in most sets these (( RESELLERS )) have to offer. Lego isn’t an investment and there is no liquidity to support multiple sellers or the sale price. Its literally people trying to sell overpriced toys for x4 their value and crossing their fingers they are the 6 people this year who get the sale.They would of made more money if they bought the s&p500 and set it to reinvest the dividends. But instead they hold onto these Lego sets for years lose money in opportunity cost and can’t even liquidate
>>7384918I was informed you have a dying animal on the premises?
>>7384895>why do companies do this?It began when corporations began regarding their workforce as a form of capital. Human workers are the costliest asset any company has. The moment the company's profits stop growing, that asset is seen as a liability. Slashing the workforce is a fast way to save some money in the shortrun. This is why you see so many of them putting tons of money into automation.
>>7384968So find it cheaper elsewhere or stop pissing and moaning you idiot. >Lego spongebob set a collectors item.Yes. Things like vintage Star Wars figures are a shitty crude children's toy, but they're now a collectors item whether you like it or not.
>>7384998Thats literally the hoarders fallacy>Item sold out not produced no more so its x4 the priceNot everything that retired is worth more money. I really feel bad for the people who think just because they have something that stopped being produced it appreciated value x4You are speaking of implied value as something that has been accumulated and appreciated and that is wrong. Look at the antique and collector market for Motorcycles, Antique Cars, and even train toys that were invested and collected by the boomer generation. Those markets shrunk and theres hardly any sales because people arent interested. Suddenly all the implied value dissapeared because hardly anyone from the millineial generation and onwards are interested in that junk. Prices drop to the point where the new gen is just goina bin them in the dump when they inherit their parents house. Same thing is starting to happen to the Lego (( Resellers )) and even Funko Pop but they are too oblivious to see forward
>>7384968>explaining to me why they are being irrationallook, pal, I don't know what mark up you *feel* is appropriate for a set from 2008, but it has been laid out for you if you want it. your feelings don't matter, you can't argue with us by proxy. take it up with the seller who won't care how you feel either.If you are such a fucking amazing investor then stop spamming a neckbeard board about a children's toy and go make enough money to buy whatever you want without regard for price.If you're going to keep 'sperging out over this, please at least end your posts with "but I want it now daddy"
>>7385040Say in your opening post how someone doesnt understand how goods are bought and soldI point out how goods are only valued if they have buyers and markets are supported by liquidity not what outragous price people think their shit is worthSTOP SPERGING BRO
>60 dollars for a spongebob sethmm
Is buying sealed sets just to build them a waste of money? It's just that I am a bit germaphobic.
>>7385111That really depends if it's a few bucks different or stupid prices. I don't mind paying a little extra for virgin parts.
>>7385059yes, thank you for reiterating what you don't understand. now please, as asked several times now, go tell that to the seller. explaining why you feel they aren't doing capitalism correctly to us is almost as old as the set of plastic building blocks you can't afford with your superior grasp of markets and supply economics.
Should I just get the Detective's Office on Bricklink, or pray for a restock in stores?
>>7385168Is that bootleg Lego? Even CWC doesn't deserve that. Funny enough Detectives Office and Brick Bank are in stock everywhere in Aus, I'm playing with fire waiting for a last sale on the DO though.
Why is this song so good?https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bvqvRoMQ2Z8

Just finished my Old Fishing Store and it's probably one of my favorite modulars of all time (I even got this ship-in-a-bottle piece on Bricklink just for the occasion), any have any ideas for a good older style fishing boat to add to this thing?I was thinking something like the Orca from Jaws but I have no idea what pieces to use, it's been forever since I've built a lego boat.
>>7385202Maybe an old-fashioned wooden raft made of logs or barrels? Also, SBC did some modifications to the Creator houseboat in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlO6fnRkOf0. You could also do a tugboat similar to https://ideas.lego.com/projects/aae0fc63-1323-4eeb-bd6c-9b3524a8bf6f, maybe on a smaller scale even.
>>7384903Someone should link you a Far Cry 3 video.
>>7385209Oh man that river houseboat would be perfect, thanks a bunch anon.
>>7385218>>7385202The houseboat is great, full of useful parts. Creator is on a roll lately.

>>7383887how does this hair look on a minidoll?
>>7385297Aren't their heads too big for it to fit?
>>7383835Dude my even my pbbg doesnt do this. In fact cracks on actual building bricks (no fucking clips, though Lego is still the biggest offender there) are only limited to transparent light studs for non Lego brands.
>>7385316no, minidoll heads are designed to work with minifig hair.sometimes you might get a helmet thats tricky, but most hair should fit fine.the op pic is minidoll hair on a minifig!
>>7385316Nope, most minifig elements are pefectly compatible with minidolls!
>>7383548>Getting rid of Planty
I can't wait to see WOW sets!
>>7383350Still waiting for more minidolls to get delivered.
>>7385448No one cares
>>7383350What minifig did that head come from? The face is adorable
>>7385458This sums up /lg/ more accurately than it has any right to. /lg/ discussions are centered more on divisive theme supremacy and petty controversies in Lego multimedia than actually discussing the building process itself. Car and mech anons barely get any (you)s compared to Rex villainposting.

>>7385529Everyone here hates lego, didn't you know?
>>7385168Why did you have to dredge that up? Don't you know everything Chris touches turns to...Chris.
>>7385529>This sums up /lg/ more accurately than it has any right to. /lg/ discussions are centered more on divisive theme supremacy and petty controversies in Lego multimedia than actually discussing the building process itself. Car and mech anons barely get any (you)s compared to Rex villainposting.Yeah, it happens every time we get a new Lego movie. The overall tone of the thread was completely different prior to 2014.Eventually most of the hangers-on who came here because of TLM2 will get bored and stop posting.
>>7385529nah, it fluctuates but mocs (together with discussion of new sets and stuff) with effort and decent pics get the most replies, just not necessarily the most discussion that keeps on going. I do agree the more substantial a build is the more attention it will get and that some subjects are more popular than others. Houses and intricate vehicles and giant built characters seem to be the most popular, then followed by figures, then trains, then technic etc.also this >>7385577the less media and character focused things come along the more the pleasant legomaniacs have civil discussion about just builds it seems. And a build contest tends to bring the best out of people here too.
>>7385529Because the car and mech anons usually post the same looking stuff over and over. There's only so many times you can go " Wow awesome job on that anon. Nice work using building technique #458"But posting a megabloks set has no place in a Lego general, no matter how many minidolls you slap over it.
I'm planning out a display stand for the Wizard of Oz minifigures.I'll figure out later which yellow plates will have studs.Thoughts/improvements?

>>7383798Should we just be silent about Legos slipping quality control? This shit shouldn't be acceptable
>>7385610A space for the wicked witch and her flying monkeys would be nice. Maybe they could be flying in the air
So I'm probably the last one here to see THE LEGO MOVIE 2, but I finally went and saw it today. And I must say I was a little disappointed. The first one had a nice idea and I loved the execution. I felt it was "grounded", despite all the whimsy. And obviously the theme song was catchy as hell. The Batman Movie was also great. But this new one... the story was all over the place, I didn't like the new song, and I hated the pacing. It was like a never-ending mishmash of random action scenes, without any real heart or emotion?I did my best to avoid trailers, but this thread (and the new sets) had me spoiled on a lot of things, which also didn't help. (And speaking of new sets, I was surprised that more time wasn't spent in the apocalypse world. Or that the popup party bus wasn't featured more closely. And did we ever even see Benny's squad??)Watching this movie back to back with Wreck-it Ralph 2 was really weird, because both movies have a lot in common. (Both even refer to Fortnite, FFS.) But I liked Ralph a lot better, eventho I was expecting it to be the other way around...So what's the consensus here on TLM2? Or should I go re-read earlier generals?
Why must they tease us by trickling out Wizard of Oz figures, when are they going to give us some sets? And reissue those expensive flying monkey minifigs from TLBM?
When will matrix sets/minifigures come out? They teased us with Agent Smith in TLBM
>>7385778Oh, fuck off. (Or at least link a specific thread, if there is one.)
>>7385730It was pretty bad. Nowhere near as cute and funny as the first one, with woke garbage that just didn't fit the rest at all.
>>7385191because villain songs are the best, just listen to Let Irt Go.
>>7385796>woke garbageThis is something I had read about before seeing the movie, so I was on the lookout for it, but I actually didn't find anything so "woke" about? In fact, you might say the opposite is true, because the girl likes to play out a wedding scene, which is very traditional and not "progressive" at all.Still, the message (if there even was one) was very muddled. And I feel like I might not be getting most of the sets after all, despite already eyeing some on the shelf.

>>7385814>not "Love is an open door" was the villain song
>>7385753LEGO doesn't make R-Rated film toys. It's why we haven't had a new Deadpool set in ages.
>>7385730It was an alright movie. The "hapless male" joke at the start made me cringe hardcore though along with the utterly pointless RBG cameo. Other than that it was okay.
Lego sucksMega Construx is better now,of prove me wrong purist fags
>>7385730It was alright, not as good as the first one.I also felt like it was too grounded because of the story - it spent too much time in the human world as a major plot point and not just to underline the theme. Because it's about Emmet and Lucy's relationship, but mostly the brother and sister, and also the mom, and also... the central lego characters get kinda lost. On top of that, we spend most of our time in a couple worlds compared to the last movie. The first lego movie had a ton of lego cameos, plus we got to see multiple types of city/police stuff, space stuff, evil lair stuff, could-cuckoo land stuff, castle stuff, pirate stuff, cowboy stuff, and mishmash stuff. While I enjoyed the mixing in of fabuland figs, the new movie only really spends minimal time in apocalypseburg, a few minutes in a plant planet, most of it in the glitter cloud-cuckooland 2, and a lot of time with the human characters in a house.It also spent a lot of time being a musical, which, it really didn't need. Having said that, the song about how lame men from Gotham are and how Superman is cooler got me. >>7385816>I actually didn't find anything so "woke" about?I think some of it is move obvious if you're an american, but I didn't notice it much either. People are mad about the judge lady, and the recap of the first movie to make emmet look underpowered annoyed people too? And of course, It's a dick move to smash your little sibling's toys isn't that scandalous a message, but people who are offended read more into it.
>>7385850>utterly pointless RBG cameo>>7385897>People are mad about the judge ladyAh, I had to google this up. I literally had no idea who it was supposed to be or represent.But I'm glad to hear I wasn't the only one disappointed with the movie. (Is the Ninjago one any better? Haven't seen it yet.)
>>7385816Don’t bother replying to people who call it “woke garbage” unironically. They’re just /pol/ morons seething over the fact that a judge they don’t like got a cameo
>>7385816dumb WNBA cameo, RBG cameo, hapless male trope, Toxic Masculinity Rex Man being the Master Breaker to contrast with the first movie Master Builders, it was just a lot of details that added up to a political stink layered over everything. >>7385921>Ah, I had to google this up. I literally had no idea who it was supposed to be or represent.just another turd in the bucket of shit that's american politics.

Are they going to release the vampires in any capacity? I got a mighty need for that glittery hair.
>>7385964Just tell me those will fit on regular figs!
>>7385952I think so? This one had two, and just long enough to deliver a line like 'that's right, wnba superstar whateveryournameis'
>>7385952yeah but in the first they were among the master builders so it was more cohesive. it the second they pretty much stood out from the crowd of regular minifigs.
>>7385970They should. All of the few Friends hair pieces I have fit on regular minifig heads.
>>7385987Not true. Couple of them are too loose to hold on head.
>>7385964Maybe in the next patch? Or will it be just Toy Story? I don't really follow these so closely... But I did pick up two figures today. A local store sells opened packs, so no need to "feel" anything.
>>7384828If Lego quality is THIS bad now, is there really a reason not to buy chinkbricks? They even have some cool sets.
>>7386002That's basically just a rip off of the Ultra Agents boat.
>>7385964I fuckin hope so
>>7386002That's a very slippery slope. Why not just shoplift everything?
>>7386059You realize that not all chinkbricks are based off of stolen IP right?
>>7385998>Not true. Couple of them are too loose to hold on head.Which ones, anonBecause they were designed to be compatible and I've never had any problems
>>7386065>You realize that not all chinkbricks are based off of stolen IP right?Which of those parts did Enlighten design themselves
>>7386070The Lego stud and tube design has been public domain for a few years now. If Lego wants to make money they should, if anything, find a more resilient formula for their plastic.
>>7386065I'm not just talking about their designs. Because if your argument is that "Lego isn't worth my money", then where do you draw the line? Why buy even chinkshit? Why not just steal everything?Honestly, as this is the lego thread, people shouldn't be allowed to post bootlegos here anyway.
>>7386070Honestly I have no facts to back myself up
>>7386094>Let your little sister steal all your toysEven after reading the previous thread, this still makes me laugh... Can you really "steal" toys from siblings? Especially if they were given to (both of) you by your father?But yeah, the movie was also unironically pretty weak, compared to the previous one.
>>7386094>Child killerGet over yourself
>>7386113Don't fall for the low-quality bait
>>7386078>The Lego stud and tube design has been public domain for a few years nowRight, but which of the pieces in the Enlighten set did Enlighten design themselves instead of copying from Lego after Lego paid to design it?I'm not talking about the stud and tube design. I'm talking about parts like the windshields.
>>7386070The technic-like parts are unique to Enlighten, probably because the technic pin/hole design still has an active patent.
Swapped out Purple Doctorfish's grey hands with more accurate purple ones. Looks much better. Not sure Lego refused to make colored hands during this time period
>>7386113Seething baby killer.
>>7386129They are supposed to have surgical gloves on, moron who paid 60 dollars for a damaged Spongebob set!
>>7385921>Is the Ninjago one any better? Haven't seen it yet.)No, the Ninjago one is a bit rushed and as far as I've heard, regarded to be the weakest of the movies. Lego Batman is phenomenal, though, I'd like to think because it never metas the meta - while the toys are aware of fourth-wall-breaking and toy-related rules, you never see the humans.
>>7385998read what I wrote. All of the few Friends hair pieces that I have fit on regular minifig heads.>>7386067But yes, I'd also like to know which specific pieces don't fit properly.
>>7386159>you never see the humansI guess that can be seen as a plus, but I think the movie is just so great simply as a Batman film, that even if some humans were involved, I wouldn't mind.
>>7386155He doesn't wear gloves
>>7386172still, its not like dying some hands purple is a big deal. That's clearly the effect they were gong for.
>>7386206>still, its not like dying some hands purple is a big deal. They didn't produce purple hands until 2012.
>>7386094>Child murderBLASTOCYSTS are HUMANS
>>7386002For some weird reason whenever I see bootlego sets I only see a crude blocky toy that could look much better if molded as a proper plastic model. Objectively, Lego is no different. A Lego Slave I has steps, corners and studs and is never as accurate as a scale model. But I still love it. Why is that?
>>7386240>if I feed the troll, he'll stop trollingMakes sense.
>>7386168I think dropping the meta narrative is a good idea. It works for the first Lego movie, because it pays off the childlike logic that whole movie has been operating on. There's no need to include more live action sequences, because you've already establiahed there's a kid's imagination fueling the stories in the franchise. I haven't yet seen Lego Movie 2, but the live action bookends are by far the weakest parts of the Lego Ninjago Movie.
>>7386271Worst thing about those in the Ninjago movie is that they feel like they got added later during production after a rewrite so they can cash in on Jackie Chan's inclusion in the cast.The movie and all the real life objects and environments make so much more sense if you consider that it's actually about Finn playing with his Ninjago sets in the backyard garden and the (neighbor's?) cat ruining his shit.In the Making Of book it's even stated that Ninjago is in its own little world that isn't aware of any civilisations beyond the island - because it's outside, far away from the family's main Lego collection.There also aren't any pages about the live action filming in it and Chan is just noted as voice actor.
>>7386129For the most part they did. Even Squidward and Mr. Krabs had gray hands.
>>7386101Yes, actually you can. Even if the parent gifts the toys to both siblings the older sibling (or the strongest one, usually the male sibling) will use power to claim whichever toys he enjoys while the other sibling will have the scraps. Where do you people live that things like this aren't obvious and the norm? Some of you might think I'm being ironic. I'm not.
>all showings of TLM2 near me are Danish dubbedFuck, Danish dubbing sucks most of the time.
>>7386574I wish I hadn't watched it in original language, Richard Ayoade voices a character and once I noticed it it really took me out of the movie everytime he spoke
I'm really hesitant to buy the mini cooper speed champ set. I kinda like the small mini but the big one is just.. big
>>7386620same, far as I'm concerned it's a Mini with some dumb crap included to drive up the price.might be worth checking Bricklink in case any sellers split up the cars, it happens sometimes. There's a new category for it, Special Assembly.
>>7386742But even then I don't think the smaller mini is particularly well made. It's obviously a mini cooper, but I feel like they made it TOO small.
>>7386771A real vintage mini is laughably tiny, if anything it's still pretty big compared to the usual super long, wide supercards. I absolutely love it desu. I think we can agree on the new mudguards being a fantastic part though.
Okay, repost as I didn't realise the other thread is dead, mobile poster. Sorry. Tried a little redesign, make it a little more modern and utilitarian. Lengthened the fuselage a bit, and added an opening cockpit. Not final, as I'm still tinkering with it, but this is it'a progress.I really do need more light grey plates.Also adding an interior, too.
god they're so cool
>>7386889That for sure
Why does the Lego online community feel so dead compared to the 2000s and the early 2010s? Is it because MocPages is dead?
>>7386933Internet message boards in general are dying off. It's all twitter/facebook/instagram/discord now.
>>7386935>>7386933Can I get a "The future is now, old man." MOC, please?
>>7386933Eurobricks is still around but most people have moved to /r/Lego. I miss the old YouTube community though. Especially the custom minifigure community from back in the day
>Thread Challenge I've pretty much been Frakensteining some minifigs together until I get some Moc inspiration. >>7383350
>>7386933What are some still active, or even growing Lego communities?
>>7386911I finally gave in and ordered this set today. I hope it lives up to the hype
>>7386936I have both kinds of basketball net pieces.Remind me again tomorrow and I'll do it then.
60$ spongbob set fag here. The store I was at also had pic related for 88$. The box wasn't even that bad. Should I go snatch it? Also on a side note they had the Chum bucket for 120$ with a destroyed box. I think whoever runs the store might be retarded
>>7386905Pretty good, but I do prefer your first version. The studded surface helped with the classic feel, the tiles make it look a little messy. If you really want a smoothed surface, you'd have to go full on SNOT and construct it with angled bricks instead of plates
>>7386962Yeah, I was wondering about that, the tiles are a sort of "Let's give this a try". I am considering a snot space build, though. I must admit, I am fond of the double plate layer, though. Might do that, keep it studded, and just bulk the model out a bit. I think the next MOC is going to be a freighter, though. Make it a high nose, low belly (cargo hold) type vessel.
>>7386477>>7386101dude with older brother here, also played with same age boy from school as a 3 and up yo together with Lego. At our house, at his house.We literally NEVER had an argument about whose was what and you destroyed my proud build etc etc. Every time we were building shit and needed a part that was only in the other kids moc we'd ask if it was ok. We didn't hoard the entire bin like a faggot either.Maybe i misremember stuff about my brother but he was 7 years older than me so it could've been we missed out on the age of lego interested a bit for it to be a problem. (or he was master trickster to funnel parts away from me) We both got our own 'personal' lego sets too, yet they eventually liquidated without interpersonal conflict.Are my friends and family weird?Kinda interested to see the movie, despite not being a comic guy i enjoyed the Batman one the most. Mostly excited to see some fucking Fabuland stuff in there.
>>7383664They're cheap enough from B&P. Same with the POP piece. I bought a bunch a few weeks ago. Not even sure why, I just wanted them, dammit.
>>7386996I have a brother three years younger than I am and after a short while of sharing, we kept our respective sets separate.Our sister is so much younger, she was never a factor in this.
Lenny has arrived. Don't know if I actually want to replace the helmet now, I'm liking the classic style one. Now to get crackin on a new ship or two
I've been trying to use the caps sheild print. I think I found the perfect use, a Nascar air cleaner cover.Also, holy shit, last thread is on page 10 with only 89 images
>>7386002Chinkbricks keep improving. Enlighten isnt even the best quality. Kazi, gudi, xingbao, star diamond and jie star all exist. Its an all you want buffet for militarybrickers but their lego like designs are becoming more worthwhile too. No reason to limit yourself to lego only, its not even about quality (because everyones at least decent), its about buying whatever brickset looks nice to you.>>7386080Whats this retarded logic? Buying substitute product = stealing? The absolute madness of lego purists.
>>7387075It's just a lil printed brick with a popcorn box print.
Do you guys think Lego Flintstones will just be the car, or will it come with the house too?
>>7387084I Kinda hope it's just the car, since the iconic house really relies on implied 3D curves that lego can't really replicate, and would also just be essentially a rounded grey box.
>>7387084I know people say this for every Ideas set but really, who wants Flintstones klocki?
>>7386080Imagine actually thinking that competition is tantamount to theft.
>>7386363It was a prominent female in America. I think it says a lot more about you as a person that you take such issue with it. Did you write a letter of complaint to FOX when Futurama had her coaching the Harvard Law School basketball team? It was pretty much the same gag.
>>7387147I think this might be the company just giving in to fan demand. Maybe they hope this can help spark some more intrest to give all these idiots what they keep barking for. I'm betting it will be like the Adventure Time ideas and just end up warming the shelves for the next year or two.
>>7386363Calm down, anon. De mortuis nil nisi bonum and all that. At least wait until the body is cold.
>>7387183Maybe he's just sick of current political garbage being shoved into everything.It's a Lego movie. It's supposed to be cute and funny entertainment, why does it need this shit?
>>7387206It's a 2 second cameo of somebody I had to fucking Google to figure out who it was. Who cares
>>7387216People who think the effort could've been better spent making the rest of it a better movie.
>>7387075What >>7387076 said. It's a popcorn bag.
>>7387220It literally took no effort to put her in the movie though
>>7387234>Anyone who complains about RBG just doesn’t like or respect women and that is all there is too it.If you really wanted to get back to talking about Lego, you wouldn't have made such an obvious invitation to argue with a complete blanket statement. Either that or you're a literal child who doesn't understand how discussion works.
Well, I can see a good portion of this thread being pruned. We're here for bricks, guys. Calm down. Anyway, I have to admit, I'm really considering the "Bricks bricks bricks!" set, anyone have an experience with it? Is it worth the money? PpP is good, but are the elements much use?
>>7387225I'm more upset the whole wedding wasn't between RGB and the superior Bruce.
>>7387241I've bought those Classic boxes for the kiddos before, they're great for creative play. The biggest boxes aren't always the best value per part, here at least you'd get 2500 pieces for the same price getting 2 medium ones on sale. Too many bright colors for my needs though.
friendly reminder that Poe's law is still a thing and to keep political content in>>>>>>>>/pol/
>>7383473If it makes you feel better Rex was both the problem and the solution. Shit still went down in the original timeline and it fucked Emmet up, left him bitter and dark, but without also being super rich to make it kinda better. He changes things and sure makes them worse but the difference in the timeline also allowed for a far better reconciliation between brother and sister and reunification of all the pieces into one big happy sappy family. Even Rex himself realizes this in his final moments.
Which Rex minifig is best
>>7387264Hm. I'll go with full spacesuit.
Maybe we should start a /lg/ thread in /pol/
>>7387241I bought one on sale for $40, I don't think it's worth the full price. Yeah it's a lot of parts, but it's in way too many colors, so it's either going to be small builds or rainbow barf.Could still be a good parts pack depending on your wants, I'd check the parts inventory before deciding.https://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemInv.asp?S=10717-1
>>7387261Oh shit, I just realized that Rex was Emmet turned deeper voiced, darker attitude, badass, and yet also fully self-absorbed. She made him her ex, Batman. Even more oh shit, Rex actually broke the back of the original Emmet, which doesn't even fit but whatever it's fine.
>>7387271It would get deleted by the mods.
>>7387271>reply to every shitpost>wonder why people keep shitposting
>>7387206It was a fucking name drop. You are the only shit eating /pol/tard who even cares. Frankly I only just realized you are probably a russkie troll. Probably one of the really stupid ones too for trying to stir up shit on a toy thread.
>>7387271>>7387276As long as the thread isn't overly passive aggressive shitpostingrelatiation, you totally can and they'll actually get some levelheaded replies there.Did this with some stupid vidya shit, but made an actual well written non meme topic description and it was fine.

>>7387325To be honest it's kind of derpy compared to the others.I really liked the narrow one-eyed head, it looked very robotic which matched the body, while still being an expressive face.
>>7387283Holy fuck we’re really blaming the Russians now??
>>7387326Emmet apparently gaining a hulk hand in his final death punch to the cake was...interesting.

Hey /lg/, it's been a long fucking while since I was here. I'm that dude that has the random, old-as-shit red space guy who in bullshit autism lore is a functioning alcoholic PI. Yeah, I got off the Lego boat a couple years ago and got back into model trains for my autism. I'm in a club and all that fun shit.I need your guys' help, because I remember seeing posts about this kind of shit when I lurked all the time. This isn't lego, specifically, but this is the only place I could think that deals with this kind of shit.I just bought a 40-year-old American Freedom Train set that is hard as fuck to find for sale. Like, it's legit desirable. My concern here is that the cars are molded white plastic with red and blue stripes painted on. The white plastic has obviously aged and undergone some color staining as a result, so now it's a vaguely off-white/yellow blend that looks very off compared to the white paint on the locomotive. Is there anything I can do to brighten this shit up?Also what's the product suggested for lego "glass" pieces like windshields? The windows on this exhibit car are kinda hazy and I'd like to fix that.I'll post a bunch of lego train shit to make up for my off-topic pic.
>>7387405>I'll post a bunch of lego train shit to make up for my off-topic pic.
>>7387402Yes! Anything is possible with turd party!
>>7387357Never really got into China because if the furfags but I think I'm gonna snag it. Seems kind of cool
>>7387405>Also what's the product suggested for lego "glass" pieces like windshields? The windows on this exhibit car are kinda hazy and I'd like to fix that.I used Pledge Floor Care Multi Surface Finish, there are probably others that'll do the same thing. It worked really well. Dip the part, shake off excess, then leave it to dry overnight.
>>7387425Nice! Thank you.
>>7387415>Yes! Anything is possible with turd party!I'm talking about the anon who used a Dremel to remove the skull and created a GR flame hairpiece that could be used on other minifigs.
>>7387405Post locomotive plz.
>>7387405>The white plastic has obviously aged and undergone some color staining as a result, so now it's a vaguely off-white/yellow blend that looks very off compared to the white paint on the locomotive. Is there anything I can do to brighten this shit up?Yes. Buy a few bottles of this (you can usually find it in a pharmacy) and wait for summer. Get a glass or clear plastic container that's big enough to submerge the piece in, then submerge it in the hydrogen peroxide and leave it in direct sunlight for a couple of hours. Be sure to stir it every few minutes to knock off all the air bubbles that will form on the surface of the pieces. You will want to wear rubber gloves or use a stirring stick because dunking your hand in the liquid will make your skin shrivel a bit.If possible, disassemble the cars before soaking them, so you can maximize your time.This will cause the flame-retardant molecules on the surface of the pieces to re-whiten themselves. Eventually they will yellow again in a decade or two. Sunlight might cause fading of the painted pieces, but it shouldn't be too bad.
>>7387451>Hydrogen PeroxideWell.. shit.. that will eat the stripe paint off, right?>>7387444>Post locomotive plz.It's the usual AFT GS4. She's a little grimy.
>>7387456>Well.. shit.. that will eat the stripe paint off, right?I don't think so, but I could be wrong. Might want to test it with a piece you don't care about first. I use that method to re-whiten Lego pieces, but I've never tried it with a painted toy.
>>7387456>>7387462There's an alternate method that uses Oxy-Clean as a paste that you wipe onto the plastic. You can probably google it.
>>7387462>but I've never tried it with a painted toy.I mean if it does eat the paints off then I'll just re-paint the entire thing, white and all. I can get decals of the lettering and stripes, but they're more money that I don't wanna pay if I don't have to.>>7387468>alternate method that uses Oxy-CleanOkay, I'll look for that. Thank you!
>>7387441I figured it was heresy, but since I figured that's what you meant I thought I'd bring up the knockoffs. Really it's a battle between which leaves you feeling more dirty, chinabricks or filthy heresy. Or which is safer, risking potentially destroying the brick you're trying to liberate or poisoning your bricks with chinese cancerchems.
>>7387418Oh shit gib instructions for FEF and Big Boy if they exist and are free

>>7387591As much as I agree with this sentiment, this is 4chan, and the internet at large isn't too much different, either. So, yeah, people are gonna complain about things.
>>7387594Oh people are allowed to complain. Everyone can have an opinion but ultimately each of us will do what we want.Personally I'd never set up a display like that. It'd be such a bitch to dust!

>>7387606Made some more alterations.
>>7387558I'm sure tlg will want to bank on the movie's success and make some sets
>>7387567A fellow patron of the fine arts, I see.
Are the minifigs in the movie 2 CMF set equally distributed?
>>7387811Yeah 3 sets of 20 in every box
>>7387825Well, I suppose it gets to a certain point where you have so many toys, they become unplayable. I bet those figures have never left their baseplates.
>>7387838What would they even do? You'd need an even larger number of droids.
>>7387853Clone civil war
>>7387811Yes, and apparently every row of the box has a complete series

I remember a long time ago searching for star wars lego I stumbled across a sort of blog site where this guy apparently recreated entire scenes of the original trilogy using only unlicensed parts. Dude made his own Vader, Jabba, R2D2 and a whole bunch of things from Castle, Space and various other sets. I thought it was really impressive and I'm a little sad that I can't find that site anymore
>>7387775I can’t get over how fucking youtubers cornered the entire clone wars minifig marketWhat makes them so appetizing for hoarders than any other star wnrs fig

>>7388148I’mpretty sure the bat will have a rod connection. But I hadn’t thought about the crystal hair maybe being glued. That would be a shame
>>7388139Oh neat, we're getting the one good vampire hair piece.
>>7387591People form opinions about the things around them. They receive information through sight and sound, they pass it through their brains, and they come to a conclusion. They "judge", from the temporature of the air around them to the acts of individuals. It's how we perceive the world around us. When you show something to the public, it forms an opinion.I'm not saying I agree with anon, but whenever you show something to others, you open yourself to criticism.

To the anon from previous threads there are in fact bags within bags with tlm2 cmf.

>>7388325At least it doesn't interfere with feeling them up. It's kind of baffling why some have them, some don't, some have parts in the secondary bag and some loose in the main bag.
>>7388371I think it has to do with ones that have soft parts (kitty pop's tail, dorothy's skirt) but apparently crayon girl has one as well
>>7388329That was super cool and some really impressive builds for the time. Also the custom minifigs were great, especially the Mon Calamari (that happy Emperor though)>>7388393>I think it has to do with ones that have soft partsI noticed that too, I guess some parts might be made in a different part of the factory or a different factory altogether and maybe they were packaged differently so that nothing gets lost during transport

>>7387325reminds me to Atom, from the Astro-boy prequel.
I was thinking the other day while watching the movie that it'd be great to have a Batman minifig where his eyes light up...but then I though...i dont think they've ever done that. Is it possible to have a light up eye piece that small on a minifig without it being insanely expensive to produce?Wasn't there a Bionicle set that had the head piece light up behind the masks? Or was that a fever dream?
>>7388665The piraka brain pieces lit up
>>7388665Back in '06 the Star Wars minifigures had light up lightsabers, but the figures were slightly bulkier. It'd work better with a bigfig
>>7388665Now that we have miniaturized batteries, it's a lot more feasible. You would just need a transparent head with a light inside that's got printing over the entire surface except the eyes. I'm surprised china hasn't produced a minifig head that lights up yet.

>>7388665The keychain flashlight version of batman does that. But I know its not the same
>>7385964The new Friends sets: Friends Vampire Hunters!Heartlake City is plagued by glittering vampires.Lucky enough the girls have seen all Buffy episodes.In no time they've build their own Vampire Hunter base with according Vampire buster car.A line roughly based on A-Team/Ghostbusters/Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Twilight.
>>7388665It's definitely possible. Years back we had pic related, where the light lit up when you pressed down on the head (also used for SW). Making the eyes light up instead of the hand would be easy, especially with a "helmet" wearing character
>>7388138My dreams of a wholly sensible quintuple decker couch will soon be a reality.
>>7389092This better be a $20 or less set because there's not too much going on here.Also can someone post the Virgin Emmet and the Chad Rex in the next lego gen? I unfortunately don't own any rex mini figs atm.
>>7388136>>7388138>>7388139>fabuland vampyre never
What should I pay for a Rex minifig? Is 3.99 a good deal if I don't want to get a set?
>>7389155I'd pay $5 for the one out of Emmet's Space House.
>>7384189>>7384190HoS is an incredibly underrated continuity, dope job anon.
>>7384556>>7384916Boy, the amount of bootlickers in this thread is surprising, even two is way too much.
>>7389142I don't know if they still have the moulds for the fabuland figs.
>>7389130Feels like a $20 set to me also, but with 312 parts even at $25 it would be like 8¢ per part which is really low. It looks like it has a ton of smaller parts but that fucking unikitty tail probably costs a fair amount to make, and sweet mayhem with all the dual molding and iridescent hair piece.I would buy it for $20 without unikitty and sweet mayhem, so maybe I'll grab it on discount if I don't have too many sweet mayhems by then. This really sucks for anyone that wanted to have both a couch and a mech, or to custom a sextuple-decker couch.I'm not super impressed with wave 2 so far, but see a few sets that might be neat on discount.
>>7389360>I'm not super impressed with wave 2 so far, but see a few sets that might be neat on discount.Out of the 3 theyve shown?
I can't wait for my Rexes to get here
>>73894423 just now, plus the leaked a while ago powerfist ship.
>>7387191The main difference is that the AT buildable figures were pretty garbage.
>>7389452I'm waiting for my rock monsters to show up. I'm so glad that this deal has somehow lasted this longhttps://shop.lego.com/en-US/product/Acc-Set-Rock-Monsters-2017-853677And oh hey they finally released the sewer babies. A few of them anyway. Neat but overpriced.
>>7389665I love how it makes Emmet looks like he's cheating on Wyldstyle and raising a post-apocalyptic family.
>>7389668What the fuck is this
>>7389665>all those salesIt's not fair! When I change the region for myself, there's only a couple of sets on sale - and even most of those are marked as "out of stock", so I don't know why they even bother to list them...
>>7389681TLM2 Accessory Pack. $13 for yet another basic bitch Emmet, a sweet warrior woman with rockin' abs and trunk based battle bunker, plus two sewer babies.
>>7389714>not just ordering 200 sewer babies for $1.60 each + one ab-fu for $3.75 direct from Lego
>>7389729But you can buy that set direct from Lego, anon.
>>7389734>But you can buy that set direct from Lego, anon.For $13, yeah.Or you can just buy two sewer babies and the ab-fu for $6.95 and spend the rest on extra sewer babies
>>7389740Are you saying they aren't WORTH 13 dollars!? INFIDEL!
>>7389741Well clearly the Emmet is worth at least eight bucks and they just threw in half the front end of a car because Lego loves us.
>>7389668>>7389714>has made two babies recently>has visible absPick one and only one.
>>7389729And how would you buy them direct outside of that set?
>>7389748They're Lego, anon. They buy the parts and build their babies. What, you thought she fired those kids out of the holes on the back of her legs? Silly anon, she uses those for sitting!
>>7389751>And how would you buy them direct outside of that set?I made a guide for this a couple threads back.If you know the set number, you can look it up on Brickset and get the element number, then go to Lego's replacement page (or call them directly if the part is listed as "out of stock" online) and order up to 200 of each piece individually.Element number is the mold itselfDesign number is the specific color of that mold
>>7389767Yeah, you may have made the guide but you clearly didn't use it. Allow me to help you. The set number is 853865. Buying under B&P doesn't include ANY of the figures, not even Emmet. It only includes that chick's wig. It is absolutely not a place to snag 200 sewer babies or even 1. They aren't even OUT OF STOCK they're just not even listed. Maybe customer service can help you out but using the website is a waste of time.Typically Lego doesn't allow B&P for most unique pieces from a set until around a month after release, but those are for OUT OF STOCK notices which are usually automatic the moment a set is released. I assume they do this to ensure a handy supply of legit replacement requests that early on but that's just a guess.
faffing about with semi-standardised tenders for my engines>tfw not made of enough money to build a full racing layout
>>7389789Yes, I forgot to mention to wait a month after the set is released.>The set number is 853865. Buying under B&P doesn't include ANY of the figures, not even Emmet. It only includes that chick's wig.Obviously, since none of the parts are listed on Brickset yet, they're not going to be on Lego's website yet. If you wait a month and then look up the set number on Brickset after it's inventoried, you will be able to find the specific design number of each sewer baby element.I've used this method several times with other pieces that only appear in one set.
>>7389807>Obviously, since none of the parts are listed on Brickset yet, they're not going to be on Lego's website yetIt has nothing to do with brickset
>>7389812Brickset usually has inventories within a day of them appearing on Lego's website.
>>7389812Brickset pulls their inventory automatically from Lego - if it's on Brickset you know it's on B&P
>>7389807You don't need to bother with brickset at all, and you certainly don't need to wait a month. Follow your own guide only this time try replacement or missing. That'll get you the information even if you can't buy it through this means (though I suppose you could pretend that you had defects in yours and demand replacements).Now I have run into sets where certain parts aren't listed under broken or missing pieces, but I believe that was an oversight. If it's a part in the set you should definitely be able to request it this way, which means they'll have the element and design numbers.
>>7389833Of course you can't buy it this way but at least you have the info to take to customer service. You might just get lucky since they often have more options on parts otherwise not available on the website. If this were licensed you'd probably be shit out of luck since there are certain limits and restrictions but since this set is not maybe, just maybe, you'll hit paydirt. Sadly this doesn't list prices so you'll also need to check with customer service on that.
>>7384578Take my money. I'd happily drop $100 on an AFOL architectural bricks Classic set.
>https://www.bricklink.com/v3/crowdproject/main.pageSo all of these crowdfunded projects seem to feature "one exclusive part". Any way of knowing what it is?Also, can any eurobros say if ordering these incur customs fees, despite the "free shipping" promise? (I'd be interested to picking up pic related, but I'm not sure if it's worth it in the end.)
>>7389714>another basic bitch EmmetI'm fine with that, though it would be cool if they were all slightly different. Maybe a different facial expression. I'm gonna army build Emmets with all the set's I've bought so far. I was tempted to buy that magazine that includes Emmet today, but then I saw the price. I can buy at least three common Emmets for the same price.
>>7389806>faffing about with semi-standardised tenders for my enginesI like it, especially how little design elements get continued from the actual trains
>>7389877I heresy'd the name tags and have my own squad of construction workers now
>>7389877>using Emmets as a form of currencyThe future is now
>>7389874>So all of these crowdfunded projects seem to feature "one exclusive part". Any way of knowing what it is?I don't think it has been clarified, but considering the models had to be designed irl to be entered (I think so anyway) I can only assume it's some kind of print with either the model name or just the bricklink promotion.i'd love to know if anyone has heard about customs as well, I'm eyeing the saloon and castle
>>7389887They started out identical other than the colours because I was sperging about standardisation due to how the racing format works, but I was convinced to customise them and it's definitely an improvement.Still fucking hate working around WeDo controllers though, whichever part designer thought they needed a 1x4 technic beam glued to each side should have been shot.
A few days ago anon, rightfully so, threw shade at the engine in this car, it was ridiculous looking. So redesigned it to look more like an 812 Superfast. It's more realistic if boring.
>>7386911Guided by VoicesNoice
>>7388136>>7388139>>7388138So it's $30 for the couch, $70 for the spa and $100 for the castle.
Wild speculation time of whatever happened from 1998 to 2005>Alpha Team was created using surplus parts from Insectoids (the neons) and Res-Q (black and Yellow vehicles)>9735-1: Robotics Discovery Set too, it's basically Mindstorms Insectoids>AT became a successor to Aquazone and Space even up to 2005, due to similar pieces, specially transparent antennas>the community workers sets 9247-1 and 9247-2 were made to get rid of surplus Town(-1) and World City(-2) minifig designs to make way for Lego City>the first one may have been made too to get rid of unsold Lego Island minifigs (hence why Pepper and the Infomaniac are there), and oldschool minifig faces without detailed pupils>Pretty much the same with the second one, only this time they either got rid of enough Lego Island Surplus or didn't wan't any more association with it
>>7390055All I know is Alpha Team was SHIT! The niggers designing that shit couldn't even be assed to enclose a cockpit (that's underwater no less)
>>7388749Plz help. I asked grandma for $6 but she only has Bitcoin.I just finished building the Palace Cinema, and my kids put anime stickers on it while I wasn't looking.
>>7390193>anime stickersYou should be grateful to your kids.
>>7390193So they made it awesome?
>>7390193>animeThat reminds me, I was fucking around on Bricklink the other night and bought an Exo-Force fig for shits and giggles. That line was awful, I love it.
>>7387006Same here. Must've gotten a couple hundred or so. Sadly, now that I have them, I don't need them. Any ideas/suggestions from creative Anons? (Better ideas than 'use it as smoke')
>>7390263Exo force reboot with minidolls when?
>>7390055http://www.marketingjournal.org/a-toy-story-lego-aristotle-and-business-of-play-todd-weir/>Call it “Death by Expert” or “Debt by Education.”>In the late 90s, LEGO “retired” many of their most successful and experienced engineers, hiring a new staff of “design experts” culled from the best colleges in Europe. These folks knew little about toys, and even less about the practical application of plastic brick-work, let alone children at play. Under the new regime, the available LEGO parts quickly grew from 6000 to over 12,000, creating a chaos of storage and logistics, and a huge growth of infrastructure, all of which brought little return on the sales floor. New sets or series called Znap, Scala, Primo, and worst of all Galidor hit the market. Then came overseas expansion and video games.
>>7390263>AwfulBut anon, they produced some of the coolest looking Lego villains!
>Brickshelf is 19 years-old and still up and working
What's a good community to browse for Lego moc inspiration? Flickr is dying. Mocpages has been dead for years. Brickshelf is just weird and Reddit is utter shit.
What a bunch of bullies
>>7390664that's damn sweet
>>7390664Seriously one of the best cars they've ever put out, love the extra tuner parts. I want to see how they did the steering.
>>7390662That reminds me. I updated my Flickr with more infantile edginess. https://www.flickr.com/photos/notlegos/
Was there an anon that used to post hover bikes or cars or something all the time?
>>7390795Some of this is fantastic. Thank you!

>>7388242Is this true?because white cups-joysticks and couch-mech is VERY SPECIFIC i doubt they made it by themselves then if yours appeared before theirs... what the fuck
>>7390825I think that's it! thanks anon!
>>7388136DaaaaaaaaaaaaaamnI want that vampire minidoll but i dont want lietally anuything espe from this set.

>>7390828>Daaaaaaaaaaaaaamn>I want that vampire minidoll but i dont want lietally anuything espe from this set.So just buy it directly from Lego for a dollar fifty.
>>7389344I feel something inside. It's like the opposite of happiness.
>>7390852There are some molds that never make it to B&P, and I wouldn't be too optimistic about the vampire hair in that regard. And even if it were to be available there, it'd probably total out closer to five dollars, though that'd still be a great deal.
>>7389874>>7389897I'm not expert on customs, but I'm like fairly sure you have to pay regardless if it comes from outside of EU. Unless they lowball the value on the customs form, but even that differs on different countries
Hey /lg/, rate my moc!Just kidding, this shit is an actual set.
>>7390662Flickr dying is a meme, nothing more.
>>7390954It's designed too well for it t be an official Star Wars set
>>7390749Looks like the new hubs allow the wheel to be hinged from the center - should allow minimal sweep which most hubs don't.
