>>10634623I love minidolls. Anyone else?
>>10634623dubs decide who's nextJang? MandR?
>>10634553Yo momma so ugly people mistake her for a LEGO Youtuber.
>>10634646I would prefer if MandR just skipped the trans phase and went straight to the suicide phase.Rollin'.
>>10634640New Creator GWP for October leaked
>>10634623>Mousecuck threadYuck, no thanks!
>>10634652Wow! It fucking sucks!
>>10634652this is isn't filling me with hope for the Majisto's workship GWP
>>10634652Pleasing neither Halloween fans nor Pirate fansThanks LegoAnd STILL no Halloween seasonal announced otherwise, the fuck
The real question no one seems to be asking is when will just2good fully commit and undergo gender confirmation surgery?
>>10634741>when will just2good fully commit suicide?Fixed it for you.
>>10634749Now now anon, we need to take it slow and have it gradual. Much like Chris Chan we got ourselves a ripe one ready for the picking, processing and then jamming.
>>10634757>Chris ChanYou mean the dude who sexually abused his own mom? That's just nasty, man. We need less of that.
>>10634772frankly you're deluded if you think Justin doesn't routinely jerk it to thoughts of his mom.
>>10634640Enjoy your finger hinges breaking faggot
>>10634652Lmao, what a piece of shit
>>10634646What if Tie the Lego Guy left so he could transition?
>>10634646Jang's comment was on top yesterday, now I can't even find itDid he delete it?
>>10634646Not even 3 posts in and this mentally I’ll fuck has to be posted for yet another thread to be ruined.
>>10634623Why they put the ugly live action version in there?
>>10634646Rollin for nick from planet ripple
>>10634646>I have become the girlfriend I could never get in elementary school!
>>10634835Its not the live action version
>>10634842It's not the animated version either.
>>10634826Jang is such a Bro, Sarah should be happy she has this support.
>>10634889I rebuilt this madlad, but I lost both sails. I got some third party ones after seeing how much the originals cost on bl.
>>10634894>Bronot for long
>>10634860yes... its the "lego version"
>>10634783MORE LIKE BLISSFULLY UNAWARE GOD DAMN
>>10634887Wonder if those are zamors or the new Ninjago spheres.
>>10634623Zelda theme when?
>>10634887I love stuff like this so I might pick up some modern Legoslop to get it.What sets that are out currently would you anons recommend?
>>10634939Can't really go wrong with Creator as always. Monkie Kid has some solid builds, parts, and figs (and will probably be worth something later on since it's more exclusive).
>>10634944That's true, I was eyeing that sea temple with all of the underwater critters.
>>10634646This genetic deadend should be tossed in a woodchipper and used as fertilizer.
>>10634939You get the GWP with pick a brick orders.
So here are two things I've been working on lately. An upgraded 77012 that conforms more with my sensibilities. After the mods I really have to say it's a very good set, especially for the price point. Gives you quite a bit in terms of play value and the vehicle builds are great (except for the fire damage to the plane which I chose to omit and the cannons mounted on top of the wings which I moved to the underside).
And a small beach buggy that I tried to match to the other similar town builds from the 90s. This might be a miss since I don't really build Town stuff a lot and I'm quite out of practice for it.
feel like pure shit just want him back
>>10635003>White boy summer / Won't you come and take me away~
New animal recolor from the upcoming minidoll "Fairies" theme. It isn't licensed. Coming in 2024.
Been away for almost 4 monhts. What have I missed?
>>10635073Modern lego sucks
>>10634646this is sad I used to watch him but then stopped for some reason, thank goodness for my gut
>>10635070Tie the legoguy is getting married to a beautiful black girl and he won't post videos for some time going forward.
>>10635064>upcoming minidoll "Fairies" themeDo you have more info on that? I saw BrickClickers video and he didn't say anyting about a theme.
>>10635092Okay. The picture made it seem like he died.
>>10635003Someone on the SHIptember thread says he is dead.>>10623334
>>10635103More like SHITember
>>10635092>beautiful black girlno such thing
>>10634981all the 2023 Indy sets are a pretty good value, shame we won't be getting any more of them
>>10635087They pander too much to adults.
>>10635116But at the same time they still release more sets aimed at children than ever before. You could argue that there are less original themes but if I still were a kid I would have a hard time deciding what to get.
Minerfag back here, thinking of buying some stuff off bricklink, of course the singapore bohrok eyes are mainly a priority but stuff like star fish, a few weird parts and any that doesnt really have a limit to buying should also be a priority, Just need some advice on how to do so from bricklink since I havent bought online before, also as a sidenote, does anybody remember the guy making a custom knights faction who posted his shield and other stuff designs here? I am also surprised theres no spider knights (as in an actual faction of knights with a spider on the shield, not marvelslop) for anything, I feel like they would be a decent step for a villian from Wolf, Boar, Bull, Dragon, and Falcon, also since the lego spider is a pretty good shape it would fit, though castle isnt exactly my expertice, just an idea for anybody to take. Should just focus on the aliens and the miners instead
>>10635181I mainly should try to focus on doing more simplistic style builds or keeping to actual 2000's or 90's style building for my mocs, both for cost and for actually doing the style right instead of becoming overpieced blobs that try to emulate what a few bricks can do with a lot more than nessecary, also even maybe trying to have play features in a few but I am getting ahead of myself, point is I should focus on aesthethics and lower piece count/doing with what I have first and with lore and stuff second, may even need to maybe sketch some out before building them just to get a good shape or something, with the aliens stuff I can go more crazy since they use WAY more bizarre stuff and less regular system stuff (such as bionicle, animal parts, and other forms of eldritch connections to the point of even maybe using stuff like those big launchers as parts of a build by sliding a thin thing through them instead of a bullet to actually use them for connection points, but again, ahead of myself. Biggest challange is if I should keep the brown of the rock raiders in these builds or use a different color for stuff like roll cages or chains besides gray, just need some help here guys since this is one of the less shit lego communities online
>>10634833>I’ll fuckYou are saying you want to fuck the tranny just2troon? Disgusting. Back to /lgbtq/ you homo.
>>10635197Forgot picture, any advice for chains and stuff? because using lesser used elements or gimmicks (that I can afford) from across other themes could be good, since these guys are more gathering up scrap somewhat to make their vehicles and are building them on a case to case basis vs the more professional rock raiders or power miners, They have a lot of fire power but thats mostly from being pretty closely connected to blacktron for funders and a few members of the crew also being ex-blacktron since cheaper+stronger bond and experience including some of the rock raiders lasers (but modified) being used for example or other stuff, again I feel like the pieces obtained will be gotten to as I go further into this for helping establish the style but is stage one or two currently right now, hopefully everybody here understands
>>10634646duckbricks is next
>>10635204>>10635197>>10635181Stuff like this is an eye catcher for me, simple shapes used well together into making a sleek design, though aerodynamics isnt everything because this is either in a valley or underground so wind isnt as much of a factor here, I should likely just get a list of space theme colors and a big collogue of ships to take a look at and maybe try to get my brain flowing, since this is all a big project here, any advice guys?
>>10634839Highly likely. He’s autistic, which can give you false positives for gender dysphoria/make you a lot more vulnerable to pinkpilling
>>10635212https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=2466&idColor=16#T=C&C=20 I feel like these are a somewhat important part, though getting them in regular clear, dark transpartent pink (aka chinese factory maybe), or something else may be tricky, if not settle for another more common window color, though then again the window color is another thing I have been having troubles with deciding since Magenta and Dark greens are a bit of a more dark pallet for space, so should the windows pop or go with the flow sorta? along with not adding too much color conflict/overflow due to the larger pallet, the troubles of color composition is a maddening one.
Is it legal? I barely had to force it and it seems comfortably snug, if unintentional.
>>10635229>>10635212>>10635204>>10635197>>10635181Just leave some tips for me here please and I will get back in a day or maybe two to reply, any help is welcome, thank you, Minerfag signing out.
>>10634646lmao I can't believe anons memed this into reality what a fucking abomination
>>10635233Certainly not a "legal" building technique, but a connection is a connection imo.
Near life-sized Droiadeka given away in a contest in 2000.
>>10635103>>10635070he went on holyday to mexico but obviously vacations don't last 4 months, hence the rumors of his death starting with how dangerous the country can bewith how pitiful his viewcount was it's more likely he realized during the break how better life is without the work of running a youtube channel that isn't profiting so he just said fuck it
>>10635309I heard he got trampled by an elephant
>>10634646I remember an anon photoshopped a pic of him as a girl months ago and now it’s real wtf
>>10635335he's been dropping hints and putting on a voice on his videos for a long time. the writing was on the wall
>>10634646APOLOGIZE TO THE ANON(s) THAT WERE CALLING HIM JUST2TRANS, THEY WERE RIGHT
>>10635361No one gives a fuck. He will be dead next year. Start talking about lego please.
>>10635371LEGO MY EGGObye that was bad
>>10634887Berry cool. Also I saw the foosball table is like 30% off. Lmao. Still overpriced.
>>10634887Reminds me of the mini golf set that didn't win that vote they had. Maybe someone can modify it
>opening boxes>building bricksWhy haven’t you become a reseller, /toy/?
>>10635459In a couple of years I’ll double what they’re worth.
>>10635459I have a girlfriend
>>10635459I collect Lego because I enjoy it, not for the money. Go sell drugs like a normal person sellerfag.
>>10635459I actually enjoy building MOCs, I'm not jaded enough to pimp out children's toys.
Man I miss Lego LotR. It's basically the only other them besides SW to have extreme aftermarket prices.
>>10635459I have a soul
>>10634641Yep anon me too.
>>10634646Anyone have an archive of that video J2G posted of him arguing with his dad for not buying him Metalbeard’s Sea Cow? I remember all the comments were backing him up and saying shit like “It’s sad your father doesn’t understand the value of Lego and why it’s priced highly for it’s quality”. It was some of the most nuclear cringe supporting this spoiled manchild and I’ve always hated him after that video.
>>10635247I hope it doesn't break the legs over time. Super useful connection.
>>10635631Despite what the Redditors who have only collected for 5 months and think they know everything claim, sustained pressure on the heel of a fig might crack it. Obviously Reddish Brown, Dark Brown, and Dark Red (Pre-2015) will crack quite easily. But it can also affect any color if you're just unlucky. Personally I had both the heels on both of my 2014 Shock Troopers crack just from keeping them on studs.
>>10635459there's far better ways to make money with better returns, and lego requires a fuck ton of storage space for paltry returns.the days of sets giving 200%+ returns are over for 95% of sets, it's very seldom that a set is going to give you a very solid return anymore.Take for example the recent Disney castle set, retired last year I think and was sold out on Lego.com early in the year, and now this year a newer one was released within a year of returement that is a superior version of the same set, and prices have thus plummeted for the original castle. Right now the old one (71040) can be obtained for barely 50 over retail. Last Christmas they were selling for over $500-600. The point is Lego is way too risky, the ideal investment time was in the mid 2000s when prices were skyrocketing for older sets as Lego skyrocketed in popularity with the release of the Lego movie and its sequels. Covid did give quite a boost for those prices as well, and some sets are still seeing really nice price increases, but this is mostly limited to older, more limited sets such as early 2000s Lego Star Wars sets. For example the Jango Fett's Starfighter because of that minifigure has skyrocketed in price in recent years, or the Cloud City due to the boba fett classic with arm and leg prints that is one of if not the most expensive Lego minifigure now. The point is, doing this today only makes sense if you are buying sets at DEEP discounts. For example, the Galaxy Explorer set that Wal Mart was selling for 50% last year, and buying at least 10+ of that particular set and sitting on it.That's another factor, you're going to be sitting on this inventory for YEARS at minimum, and even longer after the sets are retired before you resell or you aren't making jack shit in profits, especially these days with inflation. This leads to the only worthwhile sets being very expensive $100+ sets to make maximum profit off from collectors.
>>10635460ok, and? Total up what you paid for all of those sets, most won't even be worth 25% or more of what you paid for them. A few might be 50% or more, and even fewer might double the price.Ok, so you doubled the price of a $50 set you bought and held, it's now worth $100. Now you have to sell it. ebay, bricklink, other online marketplaces are all going to have fee structures, and these days fees are shipping cost + final value + taxes, so you're paying like 10%+ (12% on ebay which is the fastest place to sell) on each item PLUS shipping costs PLUS sales tax. So let's say you sell that $50 set for $100, great, but the customer had to pay $20 to ship such a large box item, because shipping Lego is difficult as not only are larger flat shipping boxes expensive (>$1.50 per box even from bulk sellers) but shipping rates are higher for larger items in general. So you're already down a couple bucks from paying for a box to ship it in. You're now paying fees on $120+ taxes, so let's say just 5% sales tax so around $125, That's $15 in fees alone on ebay for example. minus $50 you paid for the set and you've made a grand total of.... whoa $35 in profit and you had to wait YEARS in order to make that paltry amount of profit off a $50 set, like 3 years minimum. Congrats? But it's not over, you've made a couple thousand on ebay this year, and now you have to pay taxes on that amount, sure hope you kept receipts of your purchases and can deduct the cost, enjoy doing that math / work for just selling Lego.
>>10635460Also just looking at your collection I can tell you most of those sets aren't going to be worth much anything at all, unless you got a good deal on them when you bought them on clearance or w/e. Ninjago sets don't really increase much in value. Harry Potter sets as well, they are not money makers at all. WW84 set was literally trash on clearance not worth anything. Star Wars X-wing is way too common and been on sale for years, it's never going to be worth anything and they will just release a new version in a year or 2 just like always. Even that Poe's X-wing set, which retired 2 years ago isn't worth more than retail new and sealed, and no one gives a fuck about the sequel movies anyways so they won't ever be worth much money at all. Overall you have a pretty poor collection and you're not going to make jack shit off those sets, sorry to say. If you had some mid 2010s stuff, for example the sets from Rogue One which are worth quite a lot these days that would be worth something.
would the sonic theme be a better one if the characters used chima mask's to have alternate faces or if they only had the hair and ears as an special piece and they had normal faces ?
>>10635459>>10635460I don’t know whose worse, you, or the tranny obsessed faggots clogging up the thread
I'm spending hundreds of dollars at this point trying to get the exact minifig parts I need to recreate characters from videogames. Tempted to just get decals or something instead of buying a $20 torso from like 2014
>>10635832Fucking hell mate, if you looked around on custom minifigure sites you could've probably found a few accurate videogame characters. At that point /pbbg/ really becomes the better alternative.
>>10635832What game/characters?I love doing that myself, but sometimes have to make compromises when making custom minifigs - I recently got parts for some Halo 3 marines, but picrel is like $40 each and totally not worth it so I had to opt for just straight olive green legs
>>10635460Unless you have two of every set, why resell if the value goes up later?
Coming to /toy/ as a /tg/ and /cgl/ tourist and had a question:I'm currently making a functioning chainsword and while looking for east set up for gears and power supply, I saw that the NXT bricks and mindstorm stuff is pretty easy to set up, but it's discontinued and hard to get. Bought a random nxt brick a d it's taking a fuck ton of time to update the firmware on it. Is this normal or is this literally a brick now.
>>10635901Halo, Final Fantasy, Starcraft, and Metal Gear Solid. I'm a few bricklink orders left from completing them but once I'm done I'll post. I actually have exactly one pair of those legs, gonna use them for Sniper Wolf.
>>10635212I still have this set!
>>10635257>near life size>150x150pxis there really no better picture?
Medieval Blacksmith or Galaxy Explorer? Dammit I can't decide.
>>10635459>>10635460In another year you'll be offloading the whole lot with a blurred out brickeconomy screenshot like every other failed investor I bail out.
>>10635441This is comfy as fuck!
>>10636095Not a hard decision at all.
>>10636084Unfortunately no, some guys at FBTB dug up the guy who won the contest. He sent those pics and those are the only ones. The page with the pictures isn't even up anymore, had to go to Internet Archive. Here's the link if you want to see more pictures: https://web.archive.org/web/20170710215304/http://www.fbtb.net/features/details-of-a-destroyer/
>>10635755This is an interesting idea, however I don't think it would work. All the Chima animals had long muzzels or beaks or otherwise, so having smaller slightly sunken eyes would look fine. But when it comes to the sonic characters the eyes are very large and right at the front of the fig. If masks were used then what would be the hollow area? The Chima heads already looked quite strange and they were designed by Lego. I can't think of a way that they could print a head and have it look passable as well as having something peer through the mask and look good. Having a specific hair piece is also an interesting idea but the heads would just look too small on Sonic characters.
>>10636274I hate winter so much bros...
>>10634623Thoughts on the 2006 playscale Star Destroyer vs the 2014 one? 2014 definitely looks cleaner, but the play features on the 2006 model are so much better. The bridge that can hold mini figs is awesome and the escape pod is very cool too.
>>10636339i can understand why a collector might prefer the "accuracy" of the 2014 version, but come on now, it's Lego. Why shouldn't it be a toy with goofy shit you can play with and pose figs in?
>>10635739Imo the only way to do Lego “investing” is to buy the sets you want, open them and enjoy them, and then once you’ve gotten all the value you want out of it, sell complete with the box years later and hopefully make a little more cash than you paid.
>>10634646Why do all these weak effeminate nerds turn into women. not surprising at all.
>>10636035I sure hope no one else unsubscribed from the channel and it maintains it's current numbers.
Why is scatological humor so ubiquitous with Lego these days?
>>10635645100% true, at least here in America. I just looked at a torso from the Lion Knight's Castle that I got on Bricks and Pieces earlier this year. it has just been posed on a brick on my desk at work, hardly ever played with. It has one heel crack and one of the arms is inexplicably cracked. There is no quality control in the factories anymore, at least the ones where North America gets the parts from.
>>10635369You should apologize to me. I predicted he turned into a tranny and nobody took it serious. Watch out next time when i predict something involving LEGO.
>>10635479I got out of my dark ages thanks to lego LotR. Picked up a bunch of sets of the theme and also from Hobbit. But it still hurts not getting certain sets back then. I still have '79018 The Lonely Mountain' set sealed and bought at msrp. It has become a relic, so i probably will never open it.
Remember this shit?
>>10636380they hired a bunch of german designers
>>10636380I don't really think this counts desu
>>10636465it took a while, but i'm glad the inclusion of these things is pretty rare these days and battle packs just have normal guns and not those deformed stud shooters
>>10636465And people think stud shooters are shitty...
>>10636482i guarantee there's one of those ice cream poops inside.
>>10636465Those things were weird. Some would simply pop off at a nudge, while others needed some considerablw pressure. For their size i like the weight they had, beter than handheld stud shooters for sure, but inferior to the legendary spring loaded
>>10636465>hurts your fingernail
>>10636380I'm really digging the new pinetree design they've been using.
>>10636380To hammer it home that they're selling overpriced shit.
>>10636437Bro you can't take credit for shit, he literally made a vid talking like a girl and replied to trannies saying shit like happy TDOV or whatever for tranny awareness. Everyone was onto him because he made it obvious himself. Dreamzzz is shit and so is that green cunt
Do you think finally having a factory in the United States will lower prices here?
>>10636550Why is a plant in Virginia cost a billion, bad what are they investing in more plants? What does this have to do with lego
>>10636552they are changing to plant based plastic formula, they already did it with some pieces. now they found a plant that can make them more plastic and he lives in virginia
>>10636577>plant based plasticLego was the one last based thing in the world. Now its over, RIP.
>>10636617that shits been going on for years nowhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CseIzpf9llw
>>10636437>something involving LEGOI don't give a fuck. Keep this shit off this board. It has nothing to do with toys or lego.
>>10636623No shit its cracking. Its literally made like breakaway bottles.
>>10636550Lego chose Virgina because of globohomo: https://www.worth.com/esg-principles-drive-legos-choice-virginia-1-billion-plant/>Richmond had attracted the attention of “a very large, capital-intensive manufacturing project that was interested in Virginia because of the Virginia Clean Energy Act,” says Wakefield. That legislation, signed by Democratic governor Ralph Northam in 2020, mandates that Virginia’s two power companies,Dominion Energy VirginiaandAppalachian Electric Power, produce 100% renewable energy by 2050. Any utility that didn’t meet the new standards would have to pay into a fund used to train members of historically disadvantaged communities for jobs in the clean energy sector.
>>10636445That set is amazing, shame the Hobbit movies sucked so bad though. Smaug is definitely the best dragon Lego ever made. It would hurt not to see it, but I don't think I could open a set like that either. Definitely a relic.
>>10634652I'm circling back because I'm actually kind of annoyed.Do we really not have any Halloween sets releasing this year? Just a fucking VIP add-on pack and this? And don't even say the Hocus Pocus set counts - it doesn't count any more than the "Haunted House" expert set from a few years ago.We can put a fuck ton into dumb spring sets, lunar new year, and even valentines day, but Halloween gets skipped this year?
>>10636700"Halloween is too problematic for children." – The LEGO Group
This is about it. Would be pretty weird if their were no halloween sets, but I think they just haven't been revealed yet.
>>10636700At least there's the new BAM exclusives. Not nearly as interesting as last year's though. I got myself the Haunted Mansion set on discount and I'm gonna wait till October to build it
>>10636722So they reveal the new Christmas Icons set, but not the Halloween goodies. Fuck that.
>>10635609I thought he didn’t have a dad? Wonder what he thinks of his sons transition
I want lego studio ghibli sets...
>>10636766Even less likely than me touching grass.
>>10636550They already have a factory in the US in Enfield CT. I took a tour as a kid which I believe they no longer do. Also pretty sure a lot of the human work was replaced by machines/ robots.
>>10636770Lego Mario and Transformers happened..
>>10636736Yeah I saw the BAM ones, really all I want is the "Happy Halloween" shirt. Hoping when I go by the store they might have an interesting selection of parts at least.>>10636711Don't even fucking start, I'm so tired of people acting like Halloween is some awful holiday that corrupts people.>>10636748Exactly. I can't see them holding a Halloween set close to heart until October unless they plan to just drop it out of nowhere and not even the leakers have heard of it. I'd be more than happy to be proven wrong.
Anyone got any mobile frame zero builds?
>>10636773The location in Enfield isn't a factory, it's their head office in the USA.
>>10636748Yeah, you might have a point.
>>10636445>>10636692I opened a sealed Lonely Mountain for my birthday a year or two back. Don't feel bad about it at all because I don't plan on reselling it.
>>10636773>>10636863Yeah I don't remember it being an actual factory either. Went there for a trip with scouts when I was young but there was literally nothing to see. Some kids parent somehow got us in there but we weren't even really approved to be there. Still got to check out their employee-only store and got ahold of the original Star Wars battle packs before they showed up in regular stores. Shit was so cash.
>>10636880Damn that's actually really cool. They announced earlier this year that they're gonna close the office there in 2026 and move it to Boston.
>>10636779We'll just have to wait for Ghibli to sell out hard, maybe once Disney consumes them.
>>10636465They were great and customizable. Such creative gimmick is what we wont ever have
>>10634623>no Elionwy AKA the best princessNGMI
>>10636960Makes me want to build a Hawaii
>>10636722they should do a Halloween village run of sets like the Christmas ones, guaranteed money
>>10636974Would buy. Honestly though, if they did a smaller scale version of ~$20 sets annually that could be compiled into a small Halloween town setup, I'd buy so much of that shit.
>>10636380I kinda wanna mod this into the Total Drama Confessional outhouse
the boys are back in town
4 years later and I still have no idea why this was made. Did anyone buy this?
>>10637055>30 pcsWhat's the parts breakdown on this?
>>10636863>>10636880I just looked it up. They closed the molding plant in Enfield in November of 2000. Which makes sense because I went on the tour during the late 90s when I was a little kid.
>>10637073it comes with some random regular sized bricks
>>10637073$4.33 per piece. Very Galidor-esque.
>>10636445unless you plan on selling it there's no reason to keep it closed, life is short so have fun
>>10637055>>10637073I got one but never opened it
>>10634646Friendly reminder that his is a sick ugly creature and you are right to be repulsed by it. Beauty is truth and this hideous self destruction is evil.
>>10635459>>10635460not a good look
>>10636380“Like that’s ever gonna happen!”
>>10637184It’s a very good look. ;)
>>10637199>>10636380What is the story behind the moon carving on outhouses?
>>10637219Out houses used to be marked by a sun for men and a moon for women.
>>10637241Okay, thanks fren
>international talk like a pirate day>no one posting piratesMany Such Cases! Sad!
Best Pirate ship says I, argh.
>>10637219No one really knows>>10637241>sun for menPretty sure that's just a legend
>>10636692In retrospect i wish i had gotten it but at the time it was really over priced. I think it was $130
>>10637219I'm guessing it was to let some light in without giving animals an easy access.
>>10637315Yeah, $130 retail. 866 pieces, definitely suffering from that Dragon Tax. Also really expensive for 2014 standards.
>>10637271>not even from pirate theme
>>10637360Still a pirate ship. The Sea Cow, The Black Pearl, and Queen Anne's Revenge aren't from Pirates either but they're still good pirate ships.
>>10637054When did you buy the ODST stuff?The fags at BrickForge say they don't know when they're going to be restocking the blank ODST armor, which is retarded as shit because they're literally the only company making good Halo minifig armor right now and should have a solid restock schedule for it
>>10637445All the fags are at big corporate lego, not little BrickForge. Makes (You) the biggest faggot. Don't forget to tell your "gf" Bruce, too.
>>10637445I ordered them exactly a year ago. Took me this long to get the rest of the parts for the minifigs though
>>10637454>t. brickforge employeeRestock the ODST armor & stop making dogshit like picrel
why do these threads feel so soulless and dead lately? slow ass threads, no one posts mocs anymore, barely any good discussion. Fuck guys it's boring as fuck rn
>>10637463Lego is dying
>>10637464lego is undead, filled with trannie zombies and corporate vampires
>>10637463I post my city all the time.
>>10636780You have to admit people who make a big deal for Halloween or have it as their favorite holiday are weirdo creeps though. Halloween is just for kids to dress up silly and get candy. If you are a grown man you should redirect your enthusiasm and embrace a real holiday like Christmas or Thanksgiving and make a big deal out of that.
>>10637490you are a joyless black void
>>10637490I like Halloween as an observer. I always find it interesting to see what costumes seem to be the popular ones on any given year. Funny little side story. I was still in grade school when the 89 Batman movie came out. We had an event where kids from all the classes throughout the day got to walk through other classes to show off their costumes. There was plenty of Batmen but I was the only dork in a homemade costume that was blue and grey like the Adam West Batman.
>>10636550lol thought that said $18 for a sec
>>10637492happy halloween nigga
>>10636617>>10636623>>10636647They’re getting the chemicals needed to synthesize the plastic from plants. It’s still the same old ABS, just a little more direct if you think about it
>>10636988>>10636966Just needs a light brick and a trans orange antenna piece for the laser beam
>>10637445>>10637454>>10637459>>10637462Why do I feel like I saw this exact conversation 4 months ago
>>10637490I don't think halloween adults are weird inherently but the way they always act like I'm the weird one for being the same way about christmas definitely makes me want to dunk their heads in a toilet
>>10637490This feels like baitBut nah. I like spooky shit. I like having fun with horror and the macabre. And making costumes and props and handing out candy to trick or treaters is a simple joy I look forward to every year.>>10637605I think it's more that Halloween lovers feel like Christmas encroaches too much on their space. Which is kinda fair when stores are literally putting up Christmas decorations before Halloween has passed.But they shouldn't give you shit for getting hype over Christmas. Both holidays deserve that kind of joy.

>>10637463I’ve been having trouble starting this temple, I finally got something that I think looks good. Taking inspiration from south east ruins, I’m gonna put a tree growing through the middle and top of the ruin
>>10637212>>10637215The saddest part is your selection of sets. Do you even think when you consoom?
>>10636988That's just a McDonalds in Detroit.
>>10637803I don't care what anyone says - raised baseplates were fucking amazing.
Anyone know what is up with the piece on the left? Both came together in the Atlantis Angler Fish set, I got it new back in the day so it's not a knockoff piece. And checking bricklink shows the piece on the right was meant to be included 2x.
>>10637954Cool, you got a fuck-up piece. Probably a mistake in the factory production.
>>10637954Why did you also have to bump the baby porn poster’s thread too, question anons always cause the most damage by being curious, and that just looks like it got fucked up
>>10637954>>10637957This. You got faulty brick. I buy quite a lot, it happened to me once, in Barracuda Bay set. 2x4 Light-bluish grey brick was all fucked up. I contacted lego and they sent me a replacement. Other time, there was a brick repleaced, in 3 in 1 Castle, instead of 1x1 light-bluish grey brick, there was 2x2 yellow tile with starting sticker from Super Mario line. They also sent me the missing brick no question asked.
>>10637957Since it came with the Angler Fish set specifically, I was wondering if maybe there was originally an alternate mould because it looks way too much like a fin than a fuck up to me.
>>10637982Look at the connection bar on the left one, it's deformed and doesn't seem capable of fitting in a clip.
>tfw toy dealer is out of Pirate sets
>>10638014>will the pirates get away with itOnly if their captain is the legendary...Sam Hyde
>>10638022Sam Who? Never heard of him. Must be a pretty big loser.
>>10638003Oh yeah, I'm not in denial about it being a fuck up. The clip was the tell-tale sign for me but I do think the piece looks really cool and will use it in some fish builds one day...

just2sarah's first lego review!! a new milestone for the lego community!https://youtu.be/NBBcDWWzmho?feature=shared
>10638344 (You)Did you ask her out yet, you stalker? Maybe she wants to build legoes with you and then you can schlorp your schlong into her gaping wound. Schlorp schlorp schlorp and suddenly you find that transparent round stud you were looking for!
>>10637954this type of error is called a short shot, basically not enough plastic was injected into the mold.
>>10638366This brick looks 35 and ready to settle down.
>>10638366 >Describe /lg/ in one pictureEveryone is 'the special', alright.
I've been working on Ice Planet themed MOCs, feedback welcome. 1/2
>>10636550hopefully.would trying to get a job here be a bad idea? I live in Chesterfield, dont know if I wanna work in a factory line though.
>>10637803looks great anon!>>10637918totally agree. they really made the set feel bigger. and they're fun to build ontop of. Only problem is that sometimes the big pit can be annoying and better off covered up than anything.>>10638405I really like this anon, does it have play features?
>>10638344She's not even doing anything wrong. Her content is the exact same
>>10638491Like the contents of a trash can?
Aw fuck I'm about to get into lego autism now
What are your favorite lego star wars vehicles?
>>10638475Yeah, the exact same content every other fag puts out on YouTube. Reviewing and speculating.
Heres me wip MOC. Got the idea from the taxi GWP. Have been stuck on how to do the roof for months now but I think I will get to it soon.
>>10638407Do those wedge plates even come in trans orange?
>>10637464I wouldn't say Lego is dying. Obviously financially they're doing better than ever. They just keep making even more idiotic licensed themes like Jurassic World and Disney instead of actually good original themes. Then when they make an original theme it's some overly market tested boring slop like Dreamzzz. This has really driven a lot of long time Lego fans off. I think Lego is just a FAD among Millennials right now because people started buying it during the pandemic.
>>10638628Yes, they're exclusive to 7257 Ultimate Lightsaber Duel (the Mustafar duel set from 2005).
>>10638626with buildings of that style there's nothing wrong with slapping on a flat roof or emphasizing a slight angle. You can spice it up by adding skylights, HVAC, or all sorts of other weird shit you see on roofs.
>>10638647Oh, well good luck ever building this irl in that case.
>>10638680Surprisingly, not the case. Very few specific pieces are worth more than a dollar. Even set exclusive ones.
>>10635479>Man I miss Lego LotR. It's basically the only other them besides SW to have extreme aftermarket prices.Modular sets dab on both those themes when it comes to drastic increases in price.
>>10638651That's what I plan to do. But I have not found a satisfying solution yet. I think of maybe splitting the roof in half one for the left side with the windows, the other for the metal looking segment on the right.
>>10638726Modulars are more of a sub-theme not a theme. You are definitely right though, those prices get insane as well.
>>10636465i may be in the minority, but i really enjoyed the flick gunner chair era, i get you cannot use it for everything, but it just felt so much better to play with.
>>10638717Oh, I figured since the set itself is so expensive, it would be like this piece, a 200 dollar and up windshield
>>10638758Boba Fett fags get what they deserve
>>10637803Now I see Mayan style more like. That cog wheel reminds me of Maya calendar. Are you going to stick with it? I'm glad you dropped arches. They were so out of place. My suggestion. Since this is using molded baseplate with a deep pit in it, maybe make 'collapsed' floor that reveals Mayan king sarcophagus underneath? It doesn't have to be this deep. Just make some wedges to get cracked floor look so explorers can take a look at coffins or skeletons underneath.
>>10638766Fuck you, I want that windshield and I don't even give a fuck about starslop!
ending my dark ages.
>>10638824>techslop You've only just begun them fren.
Hey, what kind of plastic are these metallic bricks made of? If it's ABS, then what do they do to give it that metallic look?
>>10638758The UCS Slave 1 is one of the most popular SW sets all time, and that piece is exclusive. As far as I know its the ONLY part exclusive to the set, although I may be wrong. People want to just Bricklink them together instead of buying the set because it's so expensive so that part inflates massively. The Mustafar set comes with 3 of that piece, is obscure, and unpopular. Another good example is the 4x4x6 Cylinder Quarter being nearly $40 each because it's only in one Alpha Team set and UCS Darth Maul bust. The Alpha Team set comes with 1 and the bust has 4. No other parts on the bust are exclusive or expensive so people try and Bricklink that together too. R.R Slugger made a whole video about it.
>>10638843Man this month I need to learn how to use bricklink to get some good deals for stuff like magenta or stuff, and get back on my study of space sets from then’s building techniquesMinerfag btw
>>10638855whatever it is that color is notorious for breaking. I have a snoke minifigure whose arms are nearly immovable because of how bad gold sticks to gold
>>10638753Love those things too, or the ones used to move guys on the sports fields, wish I had more as a kid
Do people genuinely “army build”? How do they display them? Outside of big YouTubers stacking hundreds of clones on their tables for a single shot which gets taken down the same day, I don’t see them presented in an aesthetically pleasing way. Seems like wasted space
What are the best sets from the 90s?
>>10638855Those ones are probably ground up chink mudslimes and asbestos
>>10639108Brickset lists 2,094 sets from the 90s, you gotta narrow that down.
>>10639117The best ones
First real attempt at any kind of MOC. Yeah, yeah I know, I'm a Starfag.
i apologise if this is off-topic but I thought you guys might appreciate some of my recent paint jobs in Armored Core.
>>10639206Ice Planet is next but I gotta go back and get the chainsaw; I missed it.
>>10639209also, putting that guy together made me realize that Spyrius and M-tron are the same color scheme just with translucent blue instead of green...well-played Lego....well-played....
>>10639226Well played what? There is a conncection between them? Also black and red is an incredibly obvious color combo. Also also Spyrius has a lot more black.
>>10639252I'm just goofin around man, I wasn't serious.
>>10638405>>10638407They are quite cute! I really like the panels + transparent wedges for the bionicle mech cockpit. I'd maybe change the white airplane thrusters at the top to blue to balance the colors a bit.On the rover, would a vehicle spoiler / plow blade fit? (part # 2440pb004 on BL). The finger hinge is already there, and that part was already used as a plow in an ice planet set. Everything you used in your mocs are also available part colors, which is great. You could build them in real life with currently existing parts! I always appreciate seeing that consideration.
https://youtu.be/LQ3lfUxkm90 Anyone seen this analysis of Space Police 3 lore?
>>10639281The rover has actually been built IRL, it ended up coming out a little bit different than the digital moc. I'm glad you mentioned the plow idea, because I've got something a bit like that going on with it, I just need to finish it.>>10638471I'm not sure if opening / closing windshields or vehicle doors count as play features, but if so I guess those are my play features, along with the rotatable dish on top and the aforementioned adjustable plow on the front.
>>10639281I want to try building the mech but I'm a little concerned that the bionicle legs won't be able to support the weight of the body, since its bulkier and heavier than a typical bionicle torso. Do you think those legs will be able to support the weight?
>>10639062army bulding is peak consoomer especially when factoring star slop multiplier. wasted space is all it is
>>10639307As long as the blue socket joints are in good condition they easily should. If you buy sockets I'd suggest picking up extras if they are available so you can use the best condition ones.You can build some big bulky bionicle bois and have them be stable without issue using just a single socket joint on the hips.
>>10639319Sure does look neat though
>>10639293Yes, apparently kids put all the aliens as bad guys and all the humans as cops kek, funny that considering I got some humans led by an alien and some aliens led by a human
>>10638797I’m leaving the cog wheel, just looks cool, wasn’t really going for a specific region of ruins, just adding what I liked about a few. I do like the idea of kings sarcophagus, this what I’ve come to with this build
>>10638797>>10639415I also have this little space on the side, I could make it an undiscovered kings camber
>>10639415It sets off my autism when people use technic parts for decoration
>>10639424aw, poor widdle baby.
>>10639319Army building is fun.
>>10639513Tell me you browse reddit without telling me you browse reddit
>>10639515That's a batallion, not an army. Army-building is basically hoarding figs to yourself by having way more than you need to populate your moc's or worse yet, a baseplate
Minerfag here, FINALLY fucking found the color chart so I won’t be needing to ask for it anymore at least unless I suffer dimentia or some shit, even got it pinned down and such for consistent reference, I don’t wanna loose this shit again because it may send me mad if I do, anyways here’s the chart, also a 2.0 but I don’t like how it does the clear colors as much https://www.flickr.com/photos/spaceruner/39137826025
>>10639519Uh-oh, the baby's cranky, someone better put him down for his nap.
>>10639520Don't worry, soon as they show up on PaB I'm ordering a baseplate's worth.
>>10639522>>10639513shouldn’t you be busy killing your own cats?
>>10634839Also rolling for Ripple.
>>10639525Why on earth would I do that? That's fucking retarded.
>>10639524Okay, you're a faggot. What were you expecting anon?
>>10639540Oh no some random retard called me a faggot, whatever will I do?
>>10639544>Oh no some random retard called me a faggot, whatever will I do?
>>10639424Adventurefag here, sorry I triggered your autism, anon, but you’ve been arguing with some other anon. I was gonna use more technic pieces too, but I get lazy and don’t want to looks for parts
>>10639525>The schizo's still hunting for the infamous cat killerFound him yet, boy? Your imaginary villain? If you're so certain they're here why don't you post their information? Screenshot? Evidence?No evidence? Oh my.
Can someone recommend good building programs? I know about LDD, but do Lego still support it?
>>10639676There is someone on Eurobricks who has been adding recent parts to LDD. I use it all the time to build.
>>10638344Stop self promoting, Justin.
>>10639684Thanks for help anon
>>10639127I like this a lot
>>10639319>army bulding is peak consoomerWhat about an Army of Tipper Trucks?
>>10639127It looks cool, I’d change the bars leading to the front, it looks like a giant metal detector, other than that, good stuff
>>10639226and Exploriens are Futuron with the added hologram and xray gimmick.
>>10639415the way the tree roots drape over the ruins is incredible! You're making me wawant to build my own Adventures moc soon. I love those large elbow pieces for building trees. I only have two of them which I used most recently on this dead tree.
What's the oldest set in your collection? I found set 420 from 1973 on the floor inside a barn.
>>10636339They're both shit, we need one that's actually good, with an interior on par or superior to the first order star destroyer that came out.
>>10636465Still less cancerous than stud shooters.
>>10639415Love mocs with layers of elavation
>>10636700Halloween set finally revealed. Not sure why it's only an accessory pack nor why it's being revealed so late. Space helmet in purple though.
>>10639676BLS (BrockLink Studio) is the official LDD replacementIts workflow is a fucking pain in the ass (even worst with printed pieces) but supports> new pieces Yet lacks some pieces LDD had)>tabs>saving deos NOT blocks undo redo
>>10639784What about it? Even if you made an army of MOC's you'd be in consoomer tier because there would be nothing creative in it by the time you built the 10th one
>>10640375And in the classic style!Maybe spacefags can finally stop scalping Sir Danju minifigs
Are all licensed themes considered "consoomer" by general consensus or just SW and Disney and such?
Fuck it, Minerfag here, gonna make the next thread, sorry if it’s not page 10 but people are getting lured to a 1000% bait general.
