>>7553976>that dumb expressionBut the skin is not orange enough to match actual photos of the real man
>>7553976Let’s get it onhttps://youtu.be/wcidexC4Aeg
>>7553992and yet there's plenty of pics and news footage with the orange tone. Does he choose to paint that shit on or something? We didn't make that up.
>>7554013the pics where he looks super orange have been doctored or are in unflattering lighting. he's got a bit of tan but it's not that crazy.
>>7554013No one fucking cares
Yea, anyway... Block Tech isn't exactly known for quality stuff, but this set must take the cake for silliness. Flimsy, simple design, hilariously misnamed ("space cruiser", really?), I wondered how the liquidation centre was going to move their overstock. And yet, ever since getting mine I've been meaning to build a small army of these out of real Legos just for kicks.
>>7553990>that dumb expressiontrump literally has dumb expression every time i see himhe using his mouth/lips a lot and he's loud and uses gestures a lot. That's the way he captured the attentionand it will be silly not to make fun of him based on this
>>7554021his fans do since they whine when it's pointed out, but retarded people are easy to upset.
>>7553992There's no need to be upset.
>>not linking to previous thread>>7464728what happened to you, candy ice skate anon?
>>7554575The old thread was literally the last one in the catalog, guess I rushed to put up a new one, my bad. We could probably just adopt the other one here >>7554434 too many morons spamming here already.
>>7554604nah, it's okay. we'll use yours.
mine is organizing the defence of Helm's Deep>We are going to build a huge wall! And Isengard is going to pay for it!
>>7554762forgot pic, damn>The Wormtongue investigation is a witch hunt, there was no collusion with Saruman. It is fake news, folks
so my fake LotR minifigures arrived, they are from 2 different sellerswhile my Lepin minifigs that came with the set are solid 4.5, these are 3.5 and 3 max. Which was a bummer, because I paid like 0.80 for each.Worst are the Uruks, because the dark grey of their armor is completely different from the official LEGO colour, their swords are black (wtf) and the helmets are so badly made that once you put them on, you cannot put them off (I literally had to force them down).The print is ok on all of the minifigs, except for Eowyn (custom chink prints), her face looks really weird. Probably gonna switch it with another Lego pink face I have. Rohan archers are ok, but I don't get why they got those funny composite bows.Eomer is bretty good, but his pink face has a slightly different shade from Lepin pink and the print on his shield has small scratches.I definitely don't recomment Uruks from this seller, if you wan't them to pair with other minifigs. The rest is passable, not sure if you can get better, because you can't buy just minifigures from Lepin, as far as I know.stores: Eowyn (3.5/5) +Archers (3.5/5) https://www.aliexpress.com/store/4438025Uruks (2/5) +Eomers (3/5)https://worldminifigures.aliexpress.com/store/1041264
Here's a silly question, but are aqua shooter anime girls compatible with lego?I know nothing about them other that they are qt.
>>7556141>Worst are the Uruks, because the dark grey of their armor is completely different from the official LEGO colour,Personally i would not mind that. I noticed that with the helmets on some knights i bought too. Some sit extremely tight and its next to impossible to remove them. Others are really loose though.
>>7557485yeah it is true that Xinh (code XH-xxx) minifigures are probably the best quality while Pogo (PG-xxx) quality differs piece from piece. The plastic is also worse. The rest of the brands on aliexpress are most likely worse and should be used only as the last resort
Finally got around to building that Dragon Blok (aka Wange) pirate ship I've had sitting around a while. This is going to be a bit lengthy, but there's a lot to talk about, much of it not so great, unfortunately.We'll start with what's good, I suppose. It's a pretty nice looking ship, with lots of neat little details and decorations. I'm a fan of unusual minifigs and the blockhead skeleton is one of my favorite parts of the set. It was originally $60 Cdn which was already decent for a set this size, but I scored it during a half-off sale for $30, even better. It's the largest sailing ship set I've had to date, which has somewhat endeared it to me despite all the mean things I'm going to say next, heh.So yeah, the nitpicking. First off I'll mention the clutch; it's roughly comparable to earlier Enlighten, who admittedly have stepped up their game of late but I have several of their older sets attesting clutch issues, which is what this ship reminds me of. The ship's clutch is somewhat better in general than those sets, but it becomes an issue in areas of the build that would already be vulnerable with real Lego parts. The masts in particular are prone to collapse, a combination of weak clutch and flawed design (the build calls for technic axles within the round bricks to aid in stability, but they only provide small axles which leaves weak points, ended up replacing a couple with longer Lego ones). The skeletal ship's lantern at the stern is another example of clutch issue, in the collage you can see how it sags slightly as the hinge piece isn't strong enough to hold it level. Overall the clutch issue is the biggest one for me, the rest to be listed shortly are relatively minor, though they all add up.
>>7561111Moving on to the lesser issues. The one that bothers me most out of these is that the cannons were not provided with springs, despite being of the firing design (and the box art showing them in action). I'm not sure how to go about finding springs for them either, perhaps from an oversized ballpoint pen but I've not found any suitable so far. The cannons weren't wheeled either, but I have the parts to correct this at least.While the ship came with a significant pile of extra pieces (including wheel parts for the ship itself, something I opted not to install), there were some notable absences, confirmed by the official parts inventory in the instructions booklet. As a result, the ship is without one small lantern and one of the skeletons on the big ship's lantern is missing an arm. Speaking of skeletons, this is more of an observed oddity than a nitpick but the skulls used in the decoration of the ship's stern are all round, while the minifig skeleton included has a square one. The box art also shows the decorative skulls as square, so no idea what happened there. Somewhat related, they definitely goofed with the pirate rag hats. While all the other headgear in the setwere properly upsized and adapted for squares, the rag hats were not (again the box art shows to the contrary), thus two of my crew must go bareheaded.There's also other things to mention, such as marks on the hull pieces due to cheap molding processes, scratches on one of the glass windows for the stern, the captain's left arm beg breaking while being inserted and requiring that it be glued in place... But yeah, for 30 bucks I'm reasonably content with what I got; admittedly, I might've been less charitable if I'd had to pay full price. I'm tempted now to order up a ship or two on Ali and get a fleet going, but space and financial considerations are keeping that in check for the time being, heh.Fun blockheads aside, Wange definitely needs to step up their clutch and QC game.
>>7553976Made in China
>>7556343Sorta. They have a vaguely similar articulation setup to Mega Construx/Bloks figures but are about 2cm taller (they are same size as Desktop army). The neck joints are also similar in size so you could put an Aqua girls head on a standard Mega bloks figure.You will be able to fit Aqua shooter girls into larger klocki builds ie builds scaled closer to Mega bloks figures (which many ppbg sets such as the Kazi Abrams, based godtier Cobi, Winner blocks military series, Panlos tanks and Xingbao sets are).Overall my Mega bloks figures provide the bridge between klocki and non Lego toys so I love incorporating Aqua Shooters into my klocki world as aliens or supersoldiers.
>>7556343In a tonk
Got this beaut on the way right now, very pleased
>>7561111These squared heads are pretty cool.
>>7561111I can't find the link for this ship, can you say which model is it, the name, the number and manufacturer?
>>7561244Is the anime girl Aqua Shooters?
>>7562843Indeed, was happy to find some small Wange sets a couple years prior.>>7562845It's under the brand Dragon Blok, which is itself part of Wange. I got mine at Canadian Tire, can't seem to find anywhere else online you can get it. Here's the Dragon Blok page and CT listing, if that helps.http://importsdragon.com/dragonblok/https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/dragonblok-pirate-ship-building-set-1123-pc-0504928p.html
>>7562850Yes they're aqua qts
sup guys, i need help getting the tower of orthanc set from lepin. Any of you know a trusted seller still having it? I'm desperate lmao
>>7563224Thanks, I'm thinking about collecting this gasha
>>7554020It used to be back at the start of his campaign.Then he stopped getting the spray tans.
>>7564314Wave 2 should be up for preorder on ami ami. The original wave shown in my pic might be hardish to find. Was hugely popular and sold out quick.
>>7553976If I started an online store to sell pbb at a desirable price, would you guys like that?
>>7565289i sell online (not pbb). you should do more research before you start. your prices probably won't be that great.
>>7565289its called bricklink
>>7564061thanks my d00de, it's such a good set i wanted to get my hands on it before it's lost forever
>>7565289If you really think you'd be able to sell them at desirable prices, then shoot for it 100%, but I'd do a ton of research beforehand
>>7565298I'm guessing he's talking about an alternative to Bricklink that doesn't take a black belt in autism to use.
>>7565298>>7566043i think he means reselling chinese bootleg stuff not LEGO® bricks
>>7566064>>7565289there are a couple of stores like that already.Seems to work as a concept.
i have a €50 off €200 coupon on my amazon.de business account that i don't know what to do with. any idea if there's something i could resell? i looked at cobi but they have many specialized pieces and they seem a bit expensive considering the weak demand for them in my country. better get aliexpress clones with lego-like figures instead perhaps?
oof, in my country they're selling cobi sets basically at cost compared to amazon, and they have price stickers showing that they tried to sell them with a huge markup
>>7566877why not actual lego? buy some exclusives, star wars if you can, shelf them for a year and sell with profit
>>7566064Chinese stuff aren't bootleg though, unless it copies the minifigs or the models.
>>7566992why not doing both?
>>7566992the secondary market here is pretty cancerous. also i don't know which of the various reincarnations of the millennium falcon or the x-wing are desirable. the 20th anniversary remakes of the pod racers etc look like a cynical cash grab but maybe that's just me (me and my friends had a bunch of the OG lego star wars sets when we were kids). i feel no connection with the newer stuff like the porg.
Bruh, I just spent like $40 buying 38 Decool figures on Aliex. Am I retarded?
>>7569582Nah, but your children will be if any of those figs come with Chinese atoms.
What are some of the coolest /pbbg/ non-world war historical sets you guys have seen? By historical I just mean not fantasy/LoTR. Stuff like castles/knights, rogue hideouts, sail ships, british empire, cowboys, that sorta thing. I have a ton of WW2 stuff and I'm trying to supplement it with some other sets, any suggestions very appreciated
>>7553990>the skin is not orange enoughtake it easy there cult left this is /toy/
Maybe I’ll get this set in the future... looks great and Sembo apparently has good quality bricks. Might also get a Trump figure to go alongside it lol
>>7572952I have a couple from that series, quality is really good.
>>7572952based as fuckis there a website that shows all sets in one place?
>>7572952The liquidation centre got a bunch of their smaller sets in a while back, can confirm good quality.
got more minifigs for my battle, about half of them true lego™

Build the wall and make Megablocks pay for it
What do you think of my first Nanoblock MOC?
>>7577322>actually making moc out of nanobricksThat's actually pretty dope.
>>7577322>go into thrift shop>bag of nonablocks always at $20pretty good
>>7554013>>7554020My mother is a FED and got to meet him win the Oval office when he signed her execcutive order and she claim he looks worse in person. much more saggy with those old Paul McCartney jowls, the hair is much more thin and empty from up close and the orange is an on off thing and in this case his cheeks and forhead were orange but his eyesockets and ears were completely pale
>>7553976just buy lepin instead
>>7577776>>7577777 checkedThank. I spent years buying enough to do something decent.
>>7578729Story on this?
>>7574774Things I love about this product:>They bought a bulk order of chinese trumpfigs and bootlego to resell to American Patriots>They didn't bother to make sure the masonry profile bricks were all facing the correct direction before they took the product photo>They didn't bother cleaning all the dust off the baseplate before taking the product photo>almost 100% sure they stole that background image from somewhere else
>>7579655>Story on this?He got made fun of in the Lego General yesterday for hotgluing a fig, so now he's being a literal edgy 12 year old in here
https://de.aliexpress.com/item/33010283132.html?spm=a2g0s.90423126.96.36.199984c4dmv2rIMLink related was delivered today. I'll post a pic later when i assembled it.First thoughts: Minifigs are great and the prints are very good.Block quality is very good as well.
>>7581171I received this today, not to steal your thunder anon, small coincidence that they came on the same day, looking forward to seeing more of yours
>>7582410A fellow Canook aficionado of lego Adolfs eh.
>>7582437Indeed, was able to order this one after they were removed from Ali
Look at this mad man>>>/g/71283997>>>/g/71284028>>>/g/71284051>>>/g/71284080>>>/g/71284098>>>/g/71284247>>>/g/71284266
>>7582410>>7581171Here we go.The build was easy and the blocks are great quality. Same as with the halftrack in the background, the scratches etc are all stickers, but they add alot to the vehicle i think.I really like the variety in the uniforms of the minifigs. Really fitting for late war german soldiers.
>>7579741Got pics of that /lg/ incident?In compilation meme form stay safe of course.
>>7582954its size is nice too, considering the price of just 14€
>>7582954>>7582969and all of my german forces together. the minifigs are from the two sembo block vehicles (4 each) and a set of waffen ss soldiers (the guys in pea dot camo) as well as 2 hitlers and the driver of hitlers car.My next purchase will either be the panzer 4 from aliexpress (it also includes 4 of the nice sembo block soldiers if i remember it correctly) and/or some kind of Stug 3, maybe from Cobi.
>>7582973Very nice anon, fits well with your collection
>>7582973Looks great! I saw that Cobi recently released their newest pz IV which is much better scaled to minifigures. Looks great I think, better than their older models. Check it out:
>>7582973What is that panzer to the left there? From the wheel mechanism it kinda looks like a tiger but the turret looks way off
Your favorite WWII set. Go
>>7586678The Panther tank?>>7586710Waiting on some Cobi Jagdpanzers. I love these nazis.
>>7587560my first lego nazi <3
>>7587580Heroes in real life wear capes too.
>>7586678Cobi Panther. Here is a better pic, its the "world of tanks - warsaw uprising" version, so it came with alot of stickers and an optional plate for the front with a printed on polish marking.
>>7587853OhThat'd be really cool if the poles actually put any markings like that on their captured vehicles but I don't think they didI wish Cobi had more British tank options. The only Churchill they have is the I, which was a fucking experimental model, and they don't even have a Valentine or anything. Really sucks, as much as I love the German stuff, I'd like some other tanks to pit them against
>>7588095But they did.. at least in the case of that particular Panther tank (its not that they had hundreds of vehicles captured, more like 5-10). Of course this is a colorized photo, but you can google for "Pudel Panther" to find several b/w pics too.
>>7589369Oh, shit, that's actually really cool. I had no idea. Might have to get that Panther now, probably along with the other Cobi Eastern Front PantherI actually really like that the Polish one has a unique name and a really cool place in history. I love when tanks have their names written on the outside like that, like with the A&Vs of WWI. Thank you Anon
>>7590225Fun fact about the German A7Vs in case anyone was on the fence about getting one of the Cobi ones; They were all affectionately named by their crews, and were all unique in their own way in their construction. I have one coming in right now and I plan on putting a Nixe sticker on the front and marking it like the real Nixe
>>7590230Here's the Cobi A7V too
Nanoblocks are going to some weird places:http://figsoku.net/blog-entry-157892.html

>>7582954>sembo can get an obscure german armored reconnaissance car like the 8rad look right but they completely fuck up the shermanIt's not fair
>>7590656Cursed but also kinda cute.
>>7553976I need help.I've digging through my childhood LEGOs and shit, and found a kit I couldn't identify.Its clearly not LEGO, pins have no logo on them.Its a multi-section ship, floating, IIRC it was supposed to be kinda a cruise ship, its had weird long window blocks. Interestingly, it has kind of keel blocks to attach to the bottom of this ship, which are quite heavy and are apparently intended to keep the ship upright in water. The hull is light blue, deck, weights and windows are white, and there's a number of pink blocks to make walls and shit.Anyone has any ideas who made it?
are there any custom lego bitz sites based in EU? i don't wanna pay 10 bucks for delivery from US
