>>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
>>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.90423184.108.40.206984c4dmv2rIMLink 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

>>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
>>7571706/toy/ is the new /leftypol/ it's full of liberals and leftists. Pic related is what this board has become.
>>7554201You must be easy to upset then :^)
>>7595148not at home at the momentwill take a photo when i come back
>>7595129>/toy/ is the new /leftypol/Imagine getting upset on 4channel.
>>7595129To be fair, all the plastics we handle does turn into estrogen through the skin.
>>7595129Nah Im full on communist. Fuck the liberals and wannabe social justice lefties; theyre all faggots.
>>7595129Imagine overacting to a mild statement on an orange fucking minifig. For a site that once prided itself to be libertarian/politically indifferent, it is pathetic to see so many anons sucking orange dick. Meh on Bush and Obama, but somehow the god emperor must be defended. Anyway, that's beside the point.>>7595125Pics? We're aren't psychics, but judging by your description it sounds like a KO based on series of ships Lego made for the Town line. Lego ships back then had weighted ballasts and electric motors.
>>7597879Nice tanks anon. Are they all mocs?
>>7599892Thanks and yes indeed.
New liquidation centre haul inbound: dinosawrs, sea critters and a steampunk dog. All three brands are new to me; there were a few other Steam Age sets but they're not really my thing, I got one to try out the brand (the bowler hat dude is kinda cool too).
>>7601989Oops *four brands. I also got this ship, Jie Star seems to have a thousand variants of this style vessel (and I must have them all...)
>>7601993$15 seems like alot for that, don't get me wrong, I like the set, just think it is expensive. What is the regular price?>>7601993
Why do so few city builders include lights?
>>7602298Bear in mind these are Canadian prices, in the US it'd be more like 10 or 11. Don't know what they'd normally retail for, probably about the same as I've seen similar sets on Ali for that price.
>>7602422Lights are not Lego and therefore heresy.
>>7601989Woah, that steampunk dog is actually fucking sickPost pictures of that when you build it please
>>7602298Jie star is known to be practically equal to Lego quality so it really isnt bad afterall (aside from tbe very basic set designs)
>>7603771Will do. If it impresses me enough I might even go back for more, the largest set they had was a shark mech thing which I passed on more for the price at the time ($24 Cdn) cuz I was buying so much other stuff already.>>7604174>practically equalIn recent times, yes. Pic related was the first Jie Star set I ever got, a few years ago and it had some clutch issues, particularly with the ship in some places. All the sets I've picked up this year have shown marked improvement for sure. My source for these has that original set again as well, I'm half-tempted to buy another and see if it's a reissue with better quality bricks, or just old stock.After I build this one >>7601993 I'll have three ships of that general design, will have to take a "family" photo at some point heh. Think there's at least one Enlighten version floating around Ali as well...
>>7604174That makes sense. i didn't know the quality was that good
A Bloks Forum user is reporting that these Make-It Blocks polybag assortments are showing up at US Dollar Tree stores. Not as useful as the Block Tech assortments. The "roofs" polybag is just brown plates, and the "doors" are nothing of the sort.
>>7606143Haven't seen those packs yet, but Make-It Blocks sets have been on the shelves here for a while. They look cheaper than even Block Tech, which I didn't think was possible. Great minifigs tho, and the clutch is about what you'd expect.
>>7606183Here's the rest of the sets I've picked up, had these way back during the winter and kept forgetting. I got all the furniture sets to check out the designs, which unsurprisingly were all stickers, but were mostly pretty nice. I really like the vines patterns on the swing set, but was disappointed that the computer screen differed from the box design, and the colored pattern for the parasol was too small and a pain to apply. The robot guys are rather fragile owing to inferior clutch, but they're charming.
>>7606198I have some of those little vehicles! Those were indeed charming little sets, but sadly quality was below average
thread going even slower these days. how's the chinks doing since lepin?
>>7574463nice, have you seen the minis tirith/gondor army guys for sale? The cloaks are so cool
>>7606954I havn't really heard much, I do hope someone emerges to fill the lepin quality void though. I could use another modular or 2
>>7606198I've seen these sets at my DT, and I just can't bring myself to get any of them. There's not enough to them for $1. 2 for $1, maybe.
Also, Police Battle Force is receiving a second wave.
>>7608031looks like they went for a failed surgery
>>7608035The builds are fine but I hate those minifig heads
>>7608035I think the takeaway is that Enlighten has a Pokemon license, which has got to be awkward for Mega Construx.>>7608451Get used to the big heads. It's a strategic move to avoid legal hassling from Lego.
Does anyone have experience with these newer Sembo swat sets? They just released 3 new sets and they look cool, but I’m not sure how the quality is (pic related is an older model)
>>7608932See pics for new sets
>>7608944How much does the prison facility run for? Always wanted one of those
>>7609090The cheapest seller I found sells it for €51 ($58)
>>7609347>>7609090Thats really cheap, and if the quality is similar to their military vehicles (i'm the guy with the halftrack and the 8-wheel-armored car) then this should be a no-brainer if you are into police setsThat big plane looks really cool too.
>>7608932I have some older sets from them, like the big Osprey with artillery piece, and quality is decent. Not quite Lego, but close enough.
>>7610681I've got the Sembo halftrack too. It's good quality, but some of the tread pieces were missing so I had to make the tread so tight that its pretty much unrollableI'm not really a fan of police stuff but they make for really cool bases, but I'm worried about missing a jailbar piece or a window or something important
>>7608949This plane looks massive. It's probably very heavy too. Cool creation but zero playability value.
>>7587275will anything top this bootlego?play possibilities are delightful and infinitelife is now anti-climatic
>>7610828It actually has a full interior
>>7610798I have the grey helicopter and two smaller sets from that series. Quality is not exactly on par with lego but as you said, pretty close
>>7610681They actually have the Swat base for sale for €39 ($44) right now. I’m not really into police, but swat is close to military which I like. I might get it, but then I’d also have to buy some separate vehicles, which are older sets and I’m not sure if the quality will be up to par with the newest sets.
>>7614172Based nazi posting
>>7608031The Pikachu is cute. Hope to see it on AliExpress soon.
are the bootleg cobi tanks on aliexpress any good? cobi isn't sold in my country, so I have to pay ~$30 shipping on top of the actual cost of the set, but if they're garbage quality I'll pass altogether
>>7617007I have the Panzer IV. It's not quite Cobi, but it's definitely not bad, and the tanker minifigure is the most accurate one yet
Guess what im building next
>>7622090some sort of helicopter
>>7622090Is THIS your set?
Tfw gave away all my pbbg minifigures to family friends kid; except for Gudi.
Got something new in the mail today(i also ordered the BT-7 tank from that company, but can't open it because its supposed to be a gift for a friend)https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33000906720.html?https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32961312270.html?
>>7603771Got really busy over the last week, but here's the Steam Dog in all his glory. I ended up really liking the set, enough that I went back and got that Steam Shark Plane they also had. The clutch is good, hovering around Lego level of quality. The designs on the pieces are stickers, but I was ok with that, they fit really well which can be a hit or miss area with Chinese legos. The printing on the minifigs is great too, lots of little details.
>>7627796The back of the instructions booklet showed all the sets in the series; ones with a red mark are what the liquidation centre had in stock. I've got the Steam Shark Plane at the top, not sure yet when I'll put it together but for sure will provide pics.
>>7627796That steam dog is fucking dope. Where can I get it?
>>7627973Looks like they're on aliexpress, just search for bricks steam age
Yo when did China get this good? They even do back legs printings
>>7631137CHINK WORKING IThttps://youtu.be/c0Xx0tjbepg
Finally finished this after a few weeks and broke something in about two minutes. I think I was pushing it forward in neutral gear, heard something snap, now the pistons dont move anymore and the two back wheels only move in opposite directions.Oh well, was fun anyways.
any idea what this is called?someone posted this pic on FB asking for bullshit prices so i'm hoping to find cheaper on taobao
>>7631581That is Sun Wukong, the Monkey King from Chinese literary classic "Journey to the West." I believe Enlighten makes this particular rendition. It comes in a number of sets, the cheapest being around $8. Good luck!
>>7631609yea, i know its wukong, just no idea what brand its fromthanks my man
anybody here have the decool chiron? how badly will i get chinked with missing pieces if i try and get one of them from aliexpress?
>>7631778>missing piecesNot too likely to happen. Chinks would rather give you extra pieces than risk missing pieces.If you still miss pieces, dont confirm order no matter what you do, hassle the fuck out of the seller and cross your fingers.
>>7631778I usually inform about missing pieces at the store I’m about to buy from. It’s always good to know before you order if sellers send missing pieces. There are that do, but to be certain you should ask beforehand.
>>7631778I have it and got half chinked because I didn't declare all my missing pieces upfront. So they paid for the 1st one and then I had to eat the cost of the others down the line.So what you do when you're missing a piece, is keep building as far as you can go and note down the subsequent missing pieces. Then hopefully you get to the end of the instructions with a list of what you need.

>>7583665im late but that panzer has a problem with its treads, they dont move very well on smooth surfaces
>>7648032The Cobi original?Are they different from the Panther tracks? Because these run perfectly on every surface.
>>7648301im not sure what it is. They're the same as my tiger and kv2's tracks and those work great. but the panzer doesnt
same treads, but even when you press down they catch sometimes on a smooth surface
>>7649931These wide ones are usually really good but my Jagdpanzer IV also doesnt roll as well as most Cobi tanks. The track tension of this design isnt perfect I suppose.

What is the code for the Breakout Beast Charcolt?
Hello? Can anyone answer my question?
>>7608744I recently started picking up the MotU and and a few side characters here and there like Kratos and Hellboy.But it seems like it shelf warms a lot.96% of the stuff is Halo whenever I look. And usually just rando star trek or aliens guys the rest.Is this stuff actually selling or am I only going to find it online second and second hand?Side note: I'm mostly using these guys for RPG characters, does anyone knock off the Destiny line? Cuz I could use some spell effects.
>>7597879Why don't you share your bricks with your poorer comrades? That's not very communist of you.
>>7657332Because its my personal property and social welfare=/=communism. Wait until we seize all the block factories in revolution anon. Then Lego for everyone is free.
What is the code number for the breakout beast Charcolt?
>>7657451The state will have to seize your blocks temporarily until there are enough produced for everyone. Don't worry, they're free. You only need to cover the production and shipping costs. Don't forget to sign up for the waiting list. Expected wait time is 3 years per kit. No more than 2 kit orders per citizen at any one time. Thank you for your contribution comrade!
>>7658609Anon, klocki factories at all like the only recently industrialised post ww2 factories of the ussr were. There is no klocki equivalent of the cold war which had soviet factories build tens of thousands of tanks, artillery pieces and planes a year instead of consumer items to defend against imperialism.

>>7662262I wish there were a company in china focusing on doing old oop sets from the 90s.
Can someone tell me what happened to Lego, why are the new parts so shiny, shitty looking and why can't we go back to pre 2006 Lego era?
>>7665147Because they almost bankrupted before 2006.
I just found these old as shit Atco sets in an actual brick and mortar store. I don't ordinarily buy lego, much less bootleg building block sets, but these caught my eye because the packaging design looked particularly old fashioned so they ended up standing out on the shelf, and on a closer look the copyright date on these is 1988 and now I'm wondering if these are really 30+ year old sets, because they look brand new, unlike a lot of the other old toys I've come across have some degree of wear on the packaging due to having been shifted around quite a bit, probably back and forth between storage and shelf over the years, and these would be the oldest toys I've found sold in stores yet.

>>7666127A TRUE POLITICAL WARRIOR IN THE GREAT AMERICAN KUMITE
>>7666770Probably not original 1980's stock because those boxes look way too good for that age. Even if they were kept in conditions beyond reasonably good for bootleg toys it would still have something to show its age even if it's just moisture discoloring the box or the corners getting miffed. I seriously doubt these were kept sealed in an air conditioned storage unit for roughly three decades before being unearthed. I would presume it's a modern production that they never bothered to update because bootleggers aren't known for trying. Still though, cool find. I like the '80s era Lego set aesthetic
>>7666770Are you going to open? If so post the minifigs.

I occasionally find old products that got lost behind a shelf and were kept preserved from sunlight and moisture.I once found a comic book from the 1970s in mint condition that had fallen behind the rack of comics at a drugstore thirty years earlier.
The liquidation centre got in a few more sets from this SteamAge line >>7627829 namely the silly vehicle at top right, the twin-barreled tank and the flying contraption at bottom left. Bought the tank and the flying contraption, the latter mostly for the red mohawk and stache guy. Been so busy with work I haven't been able to build anything for a while, maybe this week I'll have some time for it.
>>7582969what model is this?
>>7691444You can find the link to it further up in the thread. The post is linked to the pics.
Anyone have pdfs/scans of brickmania instructions? I love the look of some of their models, but I'm not shelling out $200 for a set that I could cobble together myself at half the price.
Hey Anons, been a while. I'm the anon who said he'd review that massive truck that Sembo released a while back. I've been a slack ass, but I've got some more sembo goodies and also some Sluban goodies to show off too. All are pretty cool.
>>7696079To start off with, the truck. This is one hefty mother fucker, only just fitting over two entire baseplates. Lots of details, lots of pieces.
>>7696084Here's a minifigure up close for comparison. This shit is massive. All the pieces have great clutch, the stickers are good and even the design itself is pretty solid.
>>7696086The bastard even has an interior which is fairly roomy. Lots of space for all the minifigures in the set.
>>7696089Here's some greebling on the roof. Pretty cool looking stuff.
>>7696091There's even a small hatch on either side of the truck for minifigures to enter through, also a really cool detail.
>>7696092Now for the big boy of the set. The Trailer itself.
>>7696097The trailer can even open up at the back!
>>7696102There's also a small amount of movement allowed for the trailer, though it's pretty minimal.
>>7696111If there was one issue that I really had with the build, it'd be how much you can turn the truck/trailer. It's also, very limited. Otherwise, the build is fantastic and I absolutely encourage you to buy it. I believe the piece count was something close to 2700 pieces, for around $90 AUD. That is pretty damn amazing.
Here's the other Sembo cars I bought. They are based off real cars and use the speed champion scale. they're very lovely builds however and the look fantastic.
>>7696120Picture of the backs.
>>7696120I also got a lime green version of the speed champions AMG.
Also here's the Sluban stuff I got. less quality compared to the Sembo, but the designs are cute and I enjoyed building them.
>>7674748I actually want to do an unboxing video with these because they're so unusual, but I'm like at least 99% certain the minifigures aren't gonna have any fucking legs.
I am searching for figures on Aliexpress currently but the selection is fucking terrible. I noticed that it wasn't this bad before the search engine layout changed. There are barely any results any more and most of them don't have free shipping but did have it just one month ago during the summer sale event. Is this normal? Does it maybe have to do with my region? I am from Germany. Might it also be because I disputed close to half my orders made in the last month? Nearly every order was missing one or two items. I had problems with a couple orders now and then but the frequency was ludicrous this time.>>7631581Lego is doing their own version of that guy in the next Collectible Minifigure Series.
>>7696084You are amazing for actually buying one of these massive things. It looks amazing in your city.
What is the greatest lego technic set, and why is it the 8455?Anyway, I need help: I want to buy the Lego 10261, the big rollercoaster, but before doing that I want to be sure that I can fit it onto my shelf. If anon has it, can you please post accurate measurements of it dimensions?
Great stuff guys, the truck is especially cool. Still behind on my own building, maybe I can get something together later today.
>>7588095>and they don't even have a Valentine or anythingThey have the Sherman Vc Firefly, M7 Priest, Matilda, Chieftain, Challenger 2, A34 Comet, Centurion 1, Centurion with 20pdr, Staghound Armoured Car, M3 Scout Car. The Cobi Churchill is odd because its the world of tanks one - you get a tank that doesn't exist in reality as its a Churchill 1 hull with howitzer but Mk. III turret with 6pdr.
>>7696084this is pretty nice, thanks for the pics.>check what the movie is about>the sun is dying out>let's put a bunch of engines everywhere and push the planet into spacegenius, a plot worthy of winnie the pooh himself
Speaking of Cobi, I bought one of the fake Cobi sets for half off on aliexpress. Its not a full substitute for Cobi but I am still really impressed with quality; it fits together like Kazi but is much harder and tougher plastic. The finish is also spotless; just like real Cobi.The minifigs have better printing than Lego at this point but if the plastic of the bricks were solid; the minis are made of some kind of oddly light plastic. Still abit above average as far as pbbg minis go.I forgot to take pictures of finished tank before taking apart again for moc freebuilding. The bootleg thin treads are sort of fragile, so Im glad they came with many spares. Doesnt roll on smooth surfaces but literally no thin linked track system has done so for me.As for why I took it apart; its a typical Cobi design that left zero room for mega bloks drivers. Stay tuned for some wacky Nazi tank moc anons.
In the meantime, I built this panzer light tank out of the sluban nashorn/panzer 4 set. I somehow managed to make a tiny fully rotating turret with closing hatch fit a figure in it. Im always happy when I can repurpose a set thats too small for mega bloks scale into something that fits nicely.
Im not even that interested in WW2 equipment but buying those Mega Bloks Nazis has increasingly escalated my desire to equip them well.Id happily buy the massive Cobi Tiger II but should I also get a bootleg Cobi Panther? I am trying to avoid frivolous spending but 40 usd for it is pretty tempting.
>>7701094Bought the same 38t tank as a gift for my girlfriend. Glad to hear its good quality.
>>7701124>bootleg pantherwhere? Got a link?
>>7701094recently bought this online. I'll post pictures when it arrives
>>7701160Aliexpress links can be retarded. Put the two together.https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/cYvSa5fw
Im back. Moced the bootlego Cobi Panzer 38 to fit Mega bloks figures. Chassis is somewhat inspired by Sweden (yes) tanks. Turret isnt perfect but this will do for now.
>>7705179nice. i had a hard time finding any of the cobi-clones on ali. Thank you!
>>7699556valentine MK VII or a churchil MK VII wouldnt hurt, or a crusader AA. Fuck they could even give us the crocodile
Enlighten Combat Zones receiving a new wave. For anybody keeping track, this is the third consecutive series to receive the bighead treatment.
Was just about to post about it too. Pic related is the tank set, link below goes to the new series. I think they look pretty cool and even tho I’m not a fan of the big heads, I give them credit for trying to make these sets suitable/legal (even by changing patented bricks like Xingbao does)http://c-en.qmjm.com/index.php?g=Home&m=Index&a=product_series_list&id=880&l=en
I've been getting into collecting some of the sets lately. i just ordered the ship in a bottle and also found out about cobi. a polish company mostly putting out historical tanks and planes and stuff. pretty cool company. but man I sure do miss those fucking forestmen sets. reminded me so much of forest bandits/rhodocks from mount and blade
>>7708446That tank is like an awkward looking version of the xingbao desert tank
>>7708551Yea its supposed to be the same type of tank I think. This set will probably be a lot cheaper than the xingbao version. I like it still
>>7708761>a lot cheaperYoure right. That alone justifies its existence. The minis do interest me just for being so different. Do you have in hand pics of them? How do they scale next to lego? Also wondering how heads are connected.
>>7708227there is little these companies can do about the minifig situation, and these are among the nicest looking alternatives.
>>7708227>>7708446What i don't understand, if thats Enlighten, why is the brand on the tank box different?
>>7708875check this video from minute 3:35 onwards.Its in german, but at that timestamp he builds the bighead-minifigs of that sethttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHilJLVam7w
>>7709074Just in case you don't want to watch it: the minifigs are compatible with lego-sized heads.
>>7708485Yeah, these were the best medieval sets they ever made.. (probably spoken through pink nostalgia glasses as i had these as a child).You can find some of the oldschool knight/medieval minifigs on Aliexpress actually.I bought a small force of the black falcon knights from your pics a while ago.
>>7709097And i forgot the pic..Quality of these is "only" good. The prints are 10/10 but one out of 10 parts (arms, legs, heads) is rather loose. Not terrible and no problem when they just sit on my shelf, but it would have bothered me as a child when i actually played alot with Lego knights (used them for D&D among other things). One other thing thats a bit sad is the equipment they come with: I had to buy a couple of these classic black helmets with noseguard (and still don't have enough as you can see in the pic) and i also need more "standard" weapons. The newer medieval things are way to fancy. And last but not least, not all items with that classic black falcon logo are actually "original" i.e. existed back then: the larger shields for example and some of the upper bodies are new. But that does not bother me at all. Overall i'm extremely happy that i found these and over time i'll expand and properly equip that little army for sure.
>>7709074Thanks, didnt expect them to be that big honestly.Theyre reasonably animeish which is a nice touch.
>>7709110>it would have bothered me as a child when i actually played alot with Lego knights (used them for D&D among other things).My Nubian.
>>7709072Qman is the rebranded name of Enlighten.
Are lego men the best for stop animation or is it just me?
>>7709862I see. ThanksWhy did they went for such a strange name instead of the more catchy "Enlighten"?
>>7710654Lego men don't need stands to balance but they are basically 5poa, requiring techniques to create illusion of large movement range.Mega Construx figures on the other hand...

>>7715942Here's the link to where I got the truck from. There's another version which has a lab trailer instead of a dumb trailer, but that's not for sale on this one.https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33012135188.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.19a14bebQ2SAl2&algo_pvid=0f545d43-6124-4069-a564-dea31be0a4ee&algo_expid=0f545d43-6124-4069-a564-dea31be0a4ee-0&btsid=714fa662-2f46-4e91-a8df-d239797beaca&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_8,searchweb201603_53I don't think I've seen Sembo release the Charger.

>>7701229>>7701094Heres the 38t finished tank in all its glory. There isnt any accessible interior to put minifigs in but altogether its a solid build.
>>7718201and of course i forgot the pic
>>7718208Those straps I thought were belts that didnt fit torsos are actually gun straps? Im fucking dumb. Thanks for figuring this out, will outfit some guns with strap now.The lack of interior is a Cobi curse. Its nice that the chink designers (lazy bootleggers) at least put in the effort to make a driving compartment.
>>7718208For the Fatherland!
