>that white filter on Mario™What the fuck were they thinking?
How are we feeling about this?>The return of Pippin Reed and Harry Kane>Locomotive looks like shit, and does look any real locomotive that pulled the Orient Express, due to executive meddling>Actually minifigure scale unlike the Hogwarts Express>I don't think it can be motorized because it looks like it can't take turns>Female bartender in the 1920s, Lego's wokeness strikes again
>>10738871Should've been a Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning tie in set
>>10738871Train fans are among the most paypig-like demographics in existence, and I don't think "normal" people are that into trains in the first place, so I don't see much ground for the argument about lego getting new people in with this set. I think they should've made a super elaborate and expensive specialty train with inflated price instead so they could cash in all the autists' chips.
>>10738871Should have quiet Murder on the OE references.
>>10738861>found a youtuber who creates sick alternative builds>his videos are basically a visual instruction, despite his big ass thump getting the way sometimes but it is manageable>no parts list thoughThere are times when I couldn't for the life of me recognize which part he just used. Is there a software that I can use to generate / search for parts?
why didn't they give him a gun?
>>10738880Why the fuck did Sonic Team give him guns?
>>10738871>Female bartender in the 1920sat least it isn't a black womanlegit made me kek that nearly every female stormtrooper in star wars sets is a black woman
>>10738878That isn't even an alt-build.
>>10738884they wanted the Ratchet and Clank audience
>>10738895Shadow was when I dropped the series completely but I still love Shadow because of my inner chuuni. I wonder what parts would maks a good Maria minifig. Disney Alice's hair maybe
>>10738863They were thinking "we need a way to visually communicate that mario does not come with this set, in addition to all the text"
>>10738890>nearly every female stormtrooper in star wars sets is a black womanhttps://ia600600.us.archive.org/31/items/TerryADavis_TempleOS_Archive/fan%20media/videos/WAVE%20Media%20%28UCS6VcvWlN_FVihpQTIGr8mA%29/20190327%20-%20eoEQ563wSAY%20-%20Terry%20A.%20Davis%20-%20The%20Nigger%20Cattle%20Ultimatum/20190327%20-%20eoEQ563wSAY%20-%20Terry%20A.%20Davis%20-%20The%20Nigger%20Cattle%20Ultimatum.mkv
>>10738863It's to show he's not in the set. I think this line is the first time they've included Lego parts in the main image that aren't in the set, they used to be strict about not showing anything that isn't included.
>>10738871Let’s see what the real train autists have to say.
>>10738871I warmed up a bit to the loco now that we've got clearer pictures, and I like it in the sense that it's supposed to be more of an Emerald Night 2 than any particular Orient Express locomotive. I'm gonna at the least mod on some smoke deflectors and make it more like pic related. I'm also fine with no Power Functions compatibility being built in since I was probably always gonna just make a powered luggage car for the thing. Figs are cool and the dark blue train doors are sexy. Overall very pleased with how it turned out. >>10738873The thing with Train Simulator DLC is that you're not supposed to buy all $10000+ worth of DLC that's out there, you buy it piecemeal based on what trains and routes you like. Someone with an interested in British steam isn't going to have any interest in a DLC based on a modern day diesel route in America's southwest. There's also $10000+ worth of DLC only because the DLC from 2010 is still compatible with the newest version of the game in 2023 instead of making a new edition of the game every year like FIFA or Call of Duty do making you rebuy everything.
>caved and bought another set just for the waifig
>>10739056Post it, bitch
>>10739056What set? I almost paid x3 as much for the Tron set last night for Quorra
>>10739084Nevermind Im slow
I have a couple of 1989 Pirates sets with the original boxes that I'm considering selling.Am I better off selling the set and the box separately, or together?Conscious that box collectors who will pay what it's worth will often pick the cardboard up separately.
>>10739106mom said it was MY turn on the xbox playstation
>>10738871>Ping Pong Table>A-frame cabin>Blacksmith Workshop>and now thisLEGO has been pulling off these bait-and-switch over Lego Ideas which makes you think is there even a point in this line anymore?
>>10739157i mean the Football table for the first one, but yeah the point still stands.
>>10739157What do you mean?
>>10739162ideas sets get completely changed from their original concept into something far inferior for no real reason
>>10739162people voted the Orient Express for the French Locomotive in the original submission. changing it into a cartoonishly small engine that looking nothing like the original is just scummy so i understand the backlash towards it.
>>10738871quality Chink product as usual
>>10738884Apparently lots of fans wrote letters asking for sonic to have a gun, sega didn’t like that but shadow was really popular when sa2 came out and they felt that guns would fit him better so they combined the two for his game.
>>10739167>>10739174Okay, I see what you mean now. I'm trying real hard not to bootlick Lego but I do feel that their official sets are generally better than the submissions. The problem is that most Ideas submissions are made digitally and the football table submission is a borderline impossible design in physical practicality. That being said the official model is still pretty awful for the price.Personally I thought the Blacksmith set was a step up from the submission. The colors and proportions are just more appealing to me but I can understand the disappointment of some. I can't really speak much on the others since I don't own them.
These two are pretty great (though Z-Blob styles on Bunchu) its a shame the rest of the sets are so overpriced.might get the shark ship one day tho
Is this the greatest lego set ever
>>10739262No, this is
>>10739262the Bohrok are objectively the best Lego sets ever produced>3 play functions (head smash, roll into a ball that could actually roll around and be thrown, and krana flinging)+the packaging being canon to the bionicle story and having a holster for the ball mode bohrok to store it in a way that reflects its depiction in the story)>All for 8 fucking dollarsBohrok are deserving of being in a hall of fame for toys separate from Bionicle or Lego theyre that fucking good
>>10739267>skeleton dancing on roof with dude trying to poke him off>getting drunk on wine with skeleton>skeleton gets toi drunk jumps out window hangs from flagYeah that is pretty great.
>>10739262This set is on my wanted list but it’s so expensive
>>10739283The only nad thing about them was that their upgraded forms were kind of lame compared to the Toa
>>10739262UCS millennium falcon easy as long as you aren’t poor Literal centerpiece of my apartment. People always compliment it when they come over. Amazing build with so much detail.
>>10739295don't fix what aint broke
>>10739291>>10739262Why DID this set jump up so high compared to other Ideas sets?
>>10739298How's the mouse dick?
>>10739307You are actually insane.
>>10739298>he actually paid $850 grey plastic
>>10739308Cucks like you ruined Lego.
>>10739328Nigga Star Wars played a role in saving Lego from bankruptcy.
>>10739267What if the real greatest Lego set was the friends we made along the way?
>>10739330I know and like the old yellow head sets. Star Wars fans just made Lego more into a pop culture collectors item maker than imaginative toy company.
>looking up some vidiyo figures>most of them are actually pretty good (why did this theme die immediately again?)>see pic related>averages at about $30What the fuck.
post sets only you bought.That octopus is pretty amazing
>>10739372I got this one. You can get it for less than $30 at Target, and with Target's bonus Insider points, it's a steal at over 500 pieces.The real reason I got it was because I'm a big fan of Aqua Raiders and yellow color scheme of the submarine plus the deceased diver wearing blue feels like a callback to that theme.
>>10739261ok I thought bunchu wasnt as customizable as zbob at first but these are promising results. you can also flip the flame things forward to be dual energy blades instead of punch trails
>tfw I bought a set for a series I don't care about because it was on sale
Eeeeeh, I missed that they restocked the LEGO logo metal plate, the classic yellow one, you know, from the insiders rewards. I always wanted to glue one to my lego room door, i took the Christmas bauble instead... better luck next time i guess.
Any og Ninja fans? Made a blue temple for these guys.
What went wrong?
>>10739372I got two of those. It's pretty much perfect.
>>10739492The main characters of the show don't have enough flaws. They are hard to relate to, and the show is boring as a result.
>>10739492It's main flaw is that it's boring.Boring and flat main characters who act like what executives think zoomers do. Izzy is especially bad for this, she's an anime fan and k-pop stan, y'know everything kids today like. The set builds are "lol so random" for the sake of being in a dream. As RR Slugger says, the dream world feels like an alternate dimension instead of a dreamworld, for example it would be pretty broken if the main characters could literally do anything. There's no wet dream world, you know some kid is going to make an island of naked supermodels.
>>10739293it is bothering me that it doesn't have the blue eyes it should have, but bohrok were so kino
>>10739364imo i feel they died because of a few things.the first wave was mystery figs only, vs wave 2 that had actual "sets" for the bands. I firmly believe if they came out with the sets first, they may have lasted slightly longer.The single MF for $20 was completely retarded. the case was awesome, but the thing was filled with shitty 2x2 printed tiles that didn't matter at all.App tax themes always failand my controversial one, the figures were so unique and specialized that they didn't fit with any other lego theme. So they felt out of place. Like I still love the dragon one, but CANNOT use the torso or legs because it only fits a rocker dragon.
>>10739524I used them for this beast.
>>10739492Tried to make a theme around dreams and creativity, I harken it to chalk zone, but with lego... but the sets have no cohesion because dreams have no fucking cohesion, so the sets are just all over the place.And could be because I am older now, I feel they are trying too hard with colors. Instead of sticking with a solid main color and accent color, they feel the need to throw in every color under the sun that either doesn't work or just doesn't look right imo.Like the evil theme is Black and hot pink/purple, then they muddy it up with salmon pink and yellow, and then have to have white in there too, which to me looks weird and makes it too busy.KISS: Keep It Simple Stupid...that is why the blob set works so well it is white, and green, with black accents. simple, and effective.
>>10739082>mfw I got all the parts from PaB
>>10739546You can do that? How much did she cost you that way?
>>10739298Razor crest and ATAT are better
>>10739555https://rebrickable.com/minifigs/fig-013772/wyldfyre/#partsGo to the page for each part in the inventory and check the element ID if you don't trust me since there are no pics on PaB
>>10738871it's not pippin reed you fucking retards
>>10739283go back to /biog/
>>10739298A set so good it makes you want to lock it in a glass box and never touch it ever again
Did anyone here decide to get the Majisto Workshop gwp?
>>10739575>he actually plays with his legoSome of us are actual adults and just like cool display pieces
>>10739624God tier bait.
>>10739567Designers confirmed it.https://jaysbrickblog.com/news/lego-officially-reveals-21344-orient-express-pulling-into-stations-in-december-2023/
>>10739679The designer's headcanon means nothing.
>>10739624Might as well just print out a picture of all the sets you like and put them up on your wall. You'd save much more money that way
>>10739364technically series 2 was "cancelled" and not released in the US, but Walmart got like, one batch in stock, for the Xmas grab bins in the middle of the aisles, so if you got lucky you might have been able to get some. (Vampire Chick was one of the best figs from that set)I remember the sets were higher-priced than similar sets by a noticeable amount. Like a set that should have cost $30 instead cost $60 and the app music reason for that cost was simply not worth it.
>>10738880it's the bike from sega all-stars racing not shadow's game
>>10739706I knew that series 2 got cut short but didn't realize they never got a proper release in the US. Thanks for the info, it's a shame because there were some great figs in my opinion. I still can't believe Lego tried making their own version of tiktok though, just a really odd footnote in Lego's history looking back.
>>10739305Because it’s literally perfect design and color wise which makes it so sought after skyrocketing the price.
>>10739262the definition of soul
>>10738861When I was 9yo, I told myself to not lose the understanding of what being a kid is like, because I saw how oblivious most of the adults were. Now here on VIP weekend, some 35 years passed, I am fortunate enough to honor that request, and got the big bag I wanted from the Lego store. AM EXCITE!
>>10739492couldve went made something interesting similar to psychonauts but instead made directionless neon vomit bootleg fortnite shit
>>10739772>2 Majisto setsHow so, anon? Also congrats on keeping your child-like joy alive.
>>10739434>>10739436>>10739458The lighting could be better, but cool stuff Anon. I love the classic Ninja line. You don't see that chrome ornamental plate from Belville very often and you have several there, neat.
I'm trying to find these weird Lego bricks I had as a child. It might have been a Megablock set but they were oval shaped with two large studs on top. There were also flat pieces, and singular round pieces with one stud. They weren't traditional bricks.
>>10739308Has anyone ever answered "yes" to that?
>>10739395Cool. I think it looks more like a wrist rocket for a more devastating punch.
>>10739706Ninjago City's resident alien prostitute
>>10739811Their names all varied in different regions.
>>10739706Video was a fine idea but they should have invested in making the app work before launching it. Also the bombastic, vibrant minifigures were cool but I think appealing to more basic collectors alongside them would have been a good strategy. A more equal mix of aliens, monsters, and people.
>>10739859Yep shitty lighting, shitty camera and shitty 4mb file limit so I can't post all the good pictures.
>>10739298This display would be significantly cooler if it was filled corner to corner with some sort of moc, even it was star wars themedThis dust collector doesn't even at least have an interior to open it up for, that inflated price is entirely thanks to the disney taxWhat a waste
>>10739575Bro you can’t even play with it. It’s literally meant for display only. My friend has one in his home office with the rest of his lego collection. Thing is huge and weighs 37 lbs
>>10739811Checked and that takes me back to childhood big-time. Just as much as the Western sets and the accompanying advertisements and magazine entries that went with them.
What happened to the Lego Trains threads?
>>10739907If you aren't from a region where they were named Gail Storm and Dr Charles Lightning your region simply does not matter.
>>10739399Bought the ideas k-pop set. I don’t listen to any K-pop. Don’t like the language that much. Buutttt it was on sale!
>>10739785For fucks sake. Do they not see it’s unnatural for this “set up” to be every fucking couple on planet earth! There’s no point in complaining. I’m brown so I have nothing to worry about (in 100 years everyone will be a filthy mutt just like me)
$9 thrift find little vintage haul
>>10740009>in 100 years everyone will be a filthy mutt just like meno, they most definitely wont bethe white people will flee to safe communities and everywhere else will become haiti
>>10740021Let's settle this once and for all. Which is best?
This is fucking stupid, how do these digital discounts "sell out"?
>>10740073They’re still selling that lunar landing set? I swear that thing has been on shelves forever
>>10740080Just looked it up. Came out in 2019. I feel like that’s a long ass shelf life. It’s on its 5th year
>>10740009hey you’re literally just a person maybe it’s unhealthy to think of yourself as ‘filthy’ for having some random skin color
>>10740062I prefer the two from left.
How do I find joy in photographing my mocs? I have legit like 20 mocs I want to share with my best friends on 4chan and reddit, but taking pictures is always a stressful experience, worrying about camera settings, dust, lighting, etc.
>>107401521. Realize you have no friendsEND
>>10740152Taking pictures of anything you make almost always lessens your opinion of what you made since you’re putting up to interpretation by others. Remember that there is no such thing as the perfect shot, some are better than others but photographing anything you make limits you to just that picture. You are never going to encapsulate the whole moc in one picture. Just take a decent isometric shot and post it, if anyone gives a crap they will ask for other perspectives which you will be more than happy to provide.
>>10740152I just take the best pictures I can with my shitty cheap One+ and dim lighting. Gotta go with what you got. The 4mb size limit is the most annoying thing to me.
>>10739679These are the same troons that put poop and toilets into every set and are trying to groom kids
>>10738884Sonic Team has never known what they were doing. The genesis games were flukes they can't replicate and everything they've directly made since has been mediocre to bad.
>>10739056Seems to be the only reason anyone buys Chinkie Kid>>10739283Based>>10739298don't you mousecucks have your own general?>>10739436>>10739458Excellent, respect for a fellow raised baseplate enjoyer
>>10739492It doesn't appeal to anyone but their own committee plus the faggots on Eurobricks and Brickset.
>>10740010very nice, haven't seen that suitcase before
>>10739619Castle/nostalgia-fag here.Yes I got it - went hard. 2x big orders, one with a big set to resell at cost when it retires (should be doable, bought under msrp), and a second eldorado that I was going to buy anyway + pab order.It wasn't an ideal set. And fuck lego, but that's the game. I went big on the forest hideouts & blacktrons.Also bought some dragon masters shields & a vintage majisto for when i customise it.It really was not popular among castlefags...
>>10739619Just bought the castle. I wasn't enthusiastic about the GWP, but I decided to wait for it to buy the castle since I might as well. I think I'll moc it into an addition for my forest hideout.
>>10740235Did you get the bricklink Forrest man hideout? The gwp set from last year was great but the magistos is fucking awful.
>>10738871>that hair>that faceMs Pippin Reed also appear on Natural History Museum, working with Dr Charler Lighting aka Dr Kilroy
>>10740080Anon , its going to last millions maybe billions of years.
>>10740272The setting would canonically be the 1950s at latest, so the cyborg limb is out of place.
>>10739262jang says it was the density bounty
>>10740193>Seems to be the only reason anyone buys Chinkie KidLiterally this. I cant get Bricklink reseller to ship yo my country so thats the only way I have to buy that white skirt piece
>>10739298>display setInto the trash it goes
>>10739679>>10739567>>10738871>Harry Cane is yet to be confirmed
>>10740282>what are different timelines
>>10740282Timmy clearly went back in time and sawed off women's feet to keep as a trophy. Timmy is a freak. Anyways soul.
>>10740293And replaced them with cyborg partsAnd I know this isnt actually time cruisers but still
Speaking of cripples the Steamboat Willie sets not having a Pete figure is criminal.
>>10739298Gotta agree with >>10739938, if you modeled the surroundings based on pic related or a rebel hangar it'd be better than just a pure black void. You got the extra lighting for the display, go all out for it.
I'm in your bin

>>107403781chan is pretty much dead and doesn’t look like it ever got much attention. Lego train fans could probably do a lot for that board if there are any left around.
>>10740378>All posts are moderated before being shown.Maybe this has something to do with it. Maybe hard to have a conversation about something if the post isn’t even posted for a reasonable amount of time. Leave a comment and see what happens.
What do you guys think of Lego Minecraft?In theory, it should be the perfect crossover, but something about they translated the game's aesthetic into Lego just rubs me the wrong way.
>>10739619I had $150 between gift cards and vip points and ended up getting the lion knights castle. I don't really care for the Majisto gwp, will probably never open it. I also got the commuter train, Aston Martin speed champion set, some tracks and road plates from Target.
>>10740439Overdesigned, too many bloat, too little 2x2 (Minecraft is basically built upon the 2x2 type of brick). I only buy these sets for the minifigs and differents mobs to make my custom Minecraft theme sets.
>>10740439minifigs are gay but the sets are some of the few that still feel like lego and not like something ashamed of being brick-built
>>10740459Bulk 2x2 bricks are cheap used anon. Stock up and build away.
>>10740439Zoomercore.>Sets built out of large blocky pieces, so it's like the Lego sets of old>Rarely any overly specific moulds>Minifigures based on player skins>If you have enough sets you can build a Minecraft diorama>Creeper, aw man
>>10740439Having normal minifags with square heads always looked really bad to me. Clearly these sets shit money I don't see why they don't just make blocky minifigs for them already that would actually fit the game.
>>10740494Maybe it has something to do with licensing? There's already a blocky Minecraft toy, making the same but fit for Lego may break copyright.
>>10739298>not putting your Falcon in epoxyhttps://www.woodify.ca/shop/furniture/coffee-tables/star-wars-millenium-falcon-epoxy-table/
>>10740152for me, I find taking pictures of my mocs outside in my garden makes them really pop
>>10739298>>10740319There exist in fact several people who did this.

>>10740579Just needs a bunch of mini figs and it would be perfect
>>10740294I had this book as a kid, I remember staring at the castle / pirates pages for ages. It also came with a cool sticker sheet.
>>10740439Generally shit and anyone pulling the "only theme that still feels like lego" are parroting shit they h8ggmynever experienced
>>10740439Soulful, comfy, little more fairly priced than other licenseshitAll in all I like it but I may be biased as an elder-zoomer whose teenage years were 100% Minecraft
A mini-kit has been collected!
>>10740439Minecraft is ugly as shitGood for the kids who grew up with it and I wish no ill on those enjoying the sets but the aesthetic does nothing for me personally
Built diner modular using spare parts. Changed up the design some using what I had
>>10740843Very nice, reminds me of a hybrid of the diner and the detective's office. And I like these colors much better than the ones in the original diner.
Is the Raiders of the Lost Ark Chachapoyas temple set good. Not really a fan of the diorama look, and it looks kinda lacking? Plz respond
>>10740576Can you get in back out again?
>>10739492Nothing outside of (You) being jaded. Lego could do literally any original theme and you tards will find something wrong with it.
>>10740888>mouseshitIf you have to ask...>>10740924You really don't take any issue with the fake knees?
>>10740613I've still got mine
>>10740946>using "mouseshit" unironicallyYou faggots are more insufferable than Star Wars only collectors.
>>10740946.I hope Disney buys Lego wholesale so you can mald about it. Raiders is old as fuck and a classic made well before Lucas sold out. Anyway, any opinions on the Golden Idol Temple set?
>>10740958Yes, I'm sure that is the opinion you, as a mouseshit-only "collector," would hold.>>10740962>I hope I can slurp more yummy mouse cock! ...b-because it makes da chuds heckin mad!lol let's be real you didn't need any encouragement to feel that way, mouseslopper.
>>10740971>my plastic blocks are better than your plastic blocksActually kill yourself.
>>10740924>Lego could do literally any original theme and you tards will find something wrong with it.Monkie Kid and Ninjago are both literally perfect and the only complaints people have are dumb shit like "grr, I don't like mechs" and "Ninjago ate all the original themes" which can be dismissed out of hand because they're criticisms of the state of Lego rather than of the theme itself. Dreamzzz is bland and flawed in and of itself.
>>10740062personally 3525b. Was just that era, and there were those rare cases when the vent helped when a connector x stud got stuck in the bottom of one and was able to jam a small thing down to undo it.
What is the best way to get (you)s in this general?
>>10741111With those digits
>>10740576anyone else notice that they forgot to attach the Falcon's radar dish? holy shit, a permanent fuck-up that can never be fixed lol
>>10740888>>10740962I got all 3 sets from the new Indy wave (I still can't believe that's really all we're getting) and they're all great. The temple escape set is a solid 9.5/10. All of the traps are really fun to play with, and probably the most fun part of the build too. The boulder mechanism is really cool, and there's a very satisfying "clunk" every time you twist the knob back to set it back into place. Makes up for the lack of a regular dropping ball piece on a rail like the old one had. The whole feature with the idol is really cool too, definitely the most complex mechanism of the build, since it controls the light brick, the idol, and the falling head statue all with the same knob. The light brick also makes the set really cool in a dark room, with the light shining directly on the model. The set just looks really nice overall, the colors are great (better in-person than on the box I'd say) and I love all the foliage. Highly recommend if you're a big Indy fan.
I'm sorry, but modern Lego is the best it's ever been, and Star Wars is the best theme. You might not like it, but it's true. I also love Rey and the Star Wars sequels they are actually, unironically pure kino, the greatest Star Wars movies ever made and honestly the Lego sets are by far the best with the best Lego minifigures ever made too. I also love Disney, go ahead call me a "mousecuck" or whatever your reactionary responses will be to this post, and the Disney sets are also some of the greatest Lego sets ever made, and modern Lego completely MOGS older lego garbage from the 90s it's 100% true, sorry it makes you seethe.
>redditor accidentally gasses the lgbts and blacks with essential oilLmao
>>10741225of course someone dumb enough to buy into essential oils also buys that set
>>10741225Wait no I read that wrong its even better he fucking threw acid at them like a stupid goat fucker
>>10741227Essential oils help clear my sinuses.
>>10741237So your sinuses are clear so more essential oils can get in your lungs...
>>10741237Have you tried a saline sinus rinse? I use it in the shower every morning for my allergies, it's great.
What are your thoughts on this Lego figure?
>>10740843Looks better than most official modulars.
>>10741250Can she glinch? Or at least wear a bikini or something?
>>10739106WoP, it's a mech inspired by the sentry from exo force, theres a lego store 2 hours from me and the PaBfinder says my store finally has the exoforce style wedges available on the wall, so i'm gonna go to have even pauldeons / knees
>>10741223haha well memed my friend

>>10741319What am I looking at? You just plastered a bunch of sets and figures across a white background.
>>10740989NTA but we are all brothers here and you don't need to be so harsh on him. Its not really your place to judge him for not liking Star Wars Lego.
>>10740843Nice job. This is what you’re supposed to do with lego
>>10740843Honestly one of the best MOCs I’ve seen on here in forever. I’m actually impressed and might copy you if you don’t mind. I love the sand blue

>>10741249nta but I have sinus issues, what product do you recommend?
>Box arrives banged upIt's a good thing I'm not a autist about boxes, otherwise I'd be upset.
so I recently got back into Lego, and I've been collecting the star wars helmets but I missed out on the tie pilot / stormtrooper / scout trooper ones. The scout trooper is still reasonable but the other 2... holy shit why are they so fucking expensive? I can definitely either gets most of the pieces through pick a brick or through bricklink for MUCH cheaper, It's just asinine that just bricks, no exclusive parts or minifigs, are selling for almost $300 for the tie pilot and it was just retired like 2 years ago.
>>10741905Welcome to the world of Lego, better look at the sets retiring soon and get what you want or pay the late tax.
>>10741920i mean I just parted them out on bricklink and I can build 99% of both sets for around $50 each in parts which isn't bad.the Tie Pilot though has printed 4x4 radar disks with the empire insignia and they're... fucking $55 EACH cheapest on bricklink. Does anyone have an alternative for this part even if it's third party? like a sticker that I can use to replicate them with?
When they retire Lego Titanic next year are they likely to bring it back occasionally as a limited edition?I ask because the set as it is is peak, I wouldnt see any way lego could revamp or make a better version of it, so i was wondering what Lego usually do here >inb4 ultimate dust collectorIts actually for me and my history buff mum who wants it
>>10741931no way, once a set is retired it's done. the only exception for that was the early 2000s when lego experimented with bringing back various 1990s era sets briefly on lego.com. honestly if you really want it now is the time to get it, especially since it's double insiders points right now.
Forgot to add though I don't think it will retire next year, it seems like one of those sets Lego is going to produce for a LOOOONG time since it's exclusive so no need to worry about it clogging up store shelves.
>>10741933Hmm, any chance of it being discounted when retirement date is released?I find it interesting lego don't just do a re-release of sets like this though. Maybe they'll do some smaller version years from now like the taj mahal sets
>>10741937True, thanks for your help anon
>>10741943It's unlikely to ever be discounted a large amount, at most you might see a future insiders sale that discounts it like $50-100 at most. Lego only really discounts stuff when it's not selling well and the Titanic is a pretty popular set, it's always sold out at my local lego shop.
>>10741949Thanks again anon If anyone was interested i was speaking to a lego shop employee who had it and 500 sets lol. They get 50% discount capped at £2k a year, pretty snazzy
>>10741225>spill difuser>10 minutes before disasterFaggot literally threw an acid cloud towards his legos
>>10741765This happens to me all the time with Amazon and small sets. They just throw them all in a big box with no protection or anything. I don't care because I throw them up anyways.
Is there a good female lime green face?
>>10741920Where the fuck did you get that Angewomon I need one
>>10742090Like this?From Jabba’s palace.
>>10742090There’s about ten of them. Search on rebrickable.

What kind of person comes to kind seeing the sets they bought?
>>10738878an alt build is when u use the pieces from within the set
>>10742204A guy who constantly bitches about licensed sets ITT but never post his oh so super creative MOCs. I have nothing bad to say about those sets in particular, just to clarify.
>>10740843The best part of the original diner was the 1950s vibe
>>10741749Neilmed or Fess, they're not really different. The Fess one has a wider hole to pour salt in, the Neilmed one tightens a bit easier. You'll probably want to get one that comes with some sachets to start off with so you can get an idea of how much salt to put in, too much or too little are unpleasant. But the sachets are a rip off, you can buy table salt from the supermarket for about a dollar per kilo which works fine as long as you measure it out properly.
>>10742204>horizon legowouldnt want it for freehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSzuvKc46Tc
>>10740283Looks like junk.
>>10742259Horizons world building is fucking top notchThe first games story was greatRobot Dinosaurs, enough said.The characters are just so insufferable and unlikable, as nobody can be better than mary sue herself.
>>10742204I wanted to say based but KUŹNIA is ugly
>>10740439I enjoy it but the sets are kind of disappointing other than the prints and figures. >>10740459Same
>>10742204solid taste, unironically.
>>10742289I'm so fucking mad Horizon Zero Dawn is the game Sony decided to push so hard it got Legos. Gravity Rush has the most endearing lovable characters Ive ever seen and they didnt just kill her but her entire games studio lol. Sure there's no robot dinosaurs but games setting was gorgeous.Shadow of the Colossus and Ico would be great for Lego too.
>>10741920>the yoko figureWhere do I get one of those?
>>10741925I have bought custom replacement stickers before but never for parts that were officially printed. You can check ebay, that is where I get my customer replacement stickers. Your other option is to just wait and see if Lego releases the expensive part again in another set in the future. Then the price will come down and that will be your time to strike.
This set was fun as heck to build. Sad Avatar sets are retiring.
>>10742549Does the terrain build look better in real life? To me it just looks like a vomit of colors and shapes. At least the mech is good.
>>10742569Nah it looks like a vomit of colours but for $60 (CAD) You get a set with three separate builds, each are wildly different. Very fun
Worth it for $42 dollars?https://www.amazon.com/LEGO-Marvel-Armory-Building-Minifigures/dp/B09SRSS1RJ/ref=sr_1_6?crid=18QMKOJJW5K1W&keywords=lego+sale&qid=1700528587&s=toys-and-games&sprefix=lego+sale%2Ctoys-and-games%2C100&sr=1-6
>>10742549I bought two of them for the mechs. They guard the city.
>>10742599Good detail, maybe great deal, for Marvel fans. Probably not worth it for anyone else. As a non-Marvel fan, I would pay like $20 max which I know is unrealistic, but that's just me.
>>10740282The architecture is 50's. The era is contemporary. Buildings don't just disappear.
For me it's the Crown Knights.
Tourist not from /toy/ here. I saw some Japanese Twitter accounts showing some mech looking thing made by Lego but I have no clue what it is or if it's available. Anyone have an idea what it is? It's not Bionicle, I know that.
The new Majisto set is actually kind of shit.
>>10742738slizers/throwbots or roboriders
I love these stupid 2 piece basic figures so much especially this retarded frog
>>10742643The Adventurers characters are from around the 1930s though. I think the Scooby Doo easter egg placed Egypt in 1928.
Looking for genuine input:What kind of modular buildings are we missing? I'm looking into designing one soon.Not doing a hospital or arcade.
>>10742910Irish pub or just a bar in general.
>>10742738There's tons a Japanese mech moc builders so it's probably not a set you saw
>>10742338Lol sucks to be a coomer faggot I guesst. Robochad
>>10742910A church/wedding chapel perhaps?Did they already have a modular auto mechanic or was it only one of those creator sets?A museum with various exhibit floors.
>>10742957Honestly, I agree she gets "uglier" in the sequel but she can still look attractive in game. That said, it's the hairstyle that really fucks her up and does her no favors in the sequel.
>>10742910Need one of those “Dave and busters” type places. When I was in Japan back in 2015, I got to visit one. Multiple stories with tons of stuff. You can skip the arcade part and just do the bowling alley and table tennis. Maybe even indoor batting cages.
>>10742740Shit, my bad.
>>10743022Like another anon mentioned, this is just a hobbyist who makes their own creations, it's not an official set. Official Lego mechs almost never look this good and detailed, but it really goes to show what the medium is capable of. Sometimes the hobbyist will post instructions though so you can piece it out and make it yourself.
>>10742338I remember really enjoying the gravity rush demo on my vita. It's a shame that franchise never went anywhere
>>10743022If you want to get into Lego mecha scene, there's a lot of readily-available "frames" that you can build armor plates and stuff on top of. They usually have a pretty small part number and you can plate them with whatever stuff you have on hand. You can google stuff like ReFrame (though I think the creator charges $5 for instructions but you can pirate them) and lego mech frames in general.
they announced the next round of Bricklink Designer Program sets>castle chads stay winning
>>10743117Bloated set. One tower is enough, the second one is just a repeat of the first one. Even the the lame trees repeat themselves. I really hate repetetive designs. You always keep doing the same steps over and over.
>>10743090can you give some that are sold?
>>10743117I don't like the idea of Forestmen having a big castle. I think something like small ruins adopted for a base, or a tower carved in a giant black tree would fit them more. Just not a massive castle sitting right in the open.
>>10743133My document folders are a mess but I managed to find ReFrame pdfs and xml part list for bricklinkhttps://files.catbox.moe/oyb3hy.rar
>>10743022Those arms could not hold up the arms irl
Not the best scavenging day but I did find this little guy.
>>10743246Where the hell do you get all this?
>>10742713Very pretty but they can they FIGHT!
>>10740439What rubs you the wrong way is the blocks are cuboids not cubes I love lego minecraft however
>>10743246Our beer is shit mkdanon
>>10742256I'll try that out, thanks dawg
>>10743249Local flea market where gypsies sells the things the find or steal. I actually bought some bricks today. While not real Lego they are pretty nice. I will gift them to a neighborhood child who likes building blocks as well.
>>10743319Also mkdanon where do you get your Lego? Last 5 years have been pretty dry as Krsh seems to be the only retailer that supplies it. They throw out/resell their old stock online afaik, which is a shame cause in the past I've had phenomenal finds such as Gadunka and 2012 Gungan Sub long past their retirement.
SPACE CHADS IT IS TIME
>>10743415price will be propably over 100.
>>10743425Sorry doomer, but CITY chads are winning this one
Fortnite bros...we won
>>10743415>>10743451$30 isn't actually too badI'll at least grab the alien heads separately though, but depending on the set I might grab it for parts.
>PoopEven in the fucking Fortnite mode, one of the higher ups has a scat fetish
>>10743117I mean cool but it will be way too expensive. Why can't people just make smaller, simpler and cheaper sets for these designer programs?
>>10743510Danes are considered Germanic people, right? Therefore the Lego poop thing makes sense, Germans practically invented poop fetishes and all their toilets are designed for poop """inspections""" Yeah, they like to take apart their poop before they flush it to smell and investigate their "health"
>>10743476I just want the Battle Bus. I hope it's not ridiculously expensive (lol)
>>10743415ewe Mass Effect now
>>10743415Fuck it, I got some of those old spring loaded missile launchers. Time to slap it on that and make it a pseudo Mars Mission vehicle.
>>10743415>Space is officially a City subthemeKill me. Why do Lego fans always whine about Ninjago cannibalising original themes but not City? When are we getting the Lego City Castle subtheme?
>>10743580>Lego City Castle Tourism subthemefuck it, I'll take it
>>10743597Sounds sick, like Adventurers but them exploring old abandoned castles, could even be a Monster Fighters' sequel
>>10743597It doesn't seem like that bad of an idea, especially since Lego has done this sort of thing before.It could be like modern day England, where castles are tourist attractions.If Lego wanted to capture the DnD audience, like they seem to be doing, they could do a set with a fantasy LARP group.
>no legos set in ancient greece/romelego legionnaires and hoplites would be the shit
>>10738863It’s to simulate the white filter found on many Nintendo-developed Switch games, the entire world is enveloped in a thick fog to mask poor performance and low-res assets. See: Mario Odyssey, Mario 3D world, and Zelda Botw. I guess Lego decided to replicate this in the Mario sets
>>10743675exactly half of them would be female
Hey, have any of you guys bought anything from the official lego.com pick-a-brick thing? Do they have like minimum orders or anything? I'm doing a special project and I need just a handful of select pieces, and I'd really rather buy from an official source than some dong on eBay.
>>10743663This is one of the best Lego sets.
>>10743718Yes I have and going to in couple weeks. No order limit, but they add a charge if you go under a certain limit. Also bestseller and standard come from different factories and have their own limit charges. Over 55€ gets you free shipping.
>>10743718>>10743788this and...bricks from bestseller section are shipped fast, while you may wait couple of weeks before they send you the standard ones. Sometimes it's faster sometimes it's slower. They count bricks preciseley, so you wont miss anything like it happens in 90% of bricklink orders (or I'm just unlucky). When you order like 100s of the same brick, you may end with couple extra, as they probably weight those instead of counting.
>>10743788>>10743805Awesome, thank you
>>10743805I've had many times couple parts missing from large orders, but I've always got the parts sent or more money back than I paid. Sometimes I've had some extra parts even.
>>10743864From bricklink I mean
>>10741905>helmet collectingBased and Ezrapilled
>>10743397Krsh used to be pretty good. A few years ago I would to be able to get old series CMF mini figures for 190 MKD. They seem to be consolidating operations now and smaller locations are moving to the big malls being built. I heard Lego has cracked down on their large discounts now. As for me I get them used at the flea markets and find them on the ground by the trash containers and at local flea market when it is closed.
>>10742957They’re both cute
>>10743147Looking at how overgrown and old it is, I could see it just being an older castle they decided to take over
New city set leaked
SPACE IS BACK
>>10743663>It could be like modern day England, where castles are tourist attractions.Yeah that's what I was thinking of; I spent a weekend at Dover Castle in the summer (English Heritage rent out the Sergeant Major's house as a hotel/airbnb style thing) and they had a bunch of re-enactment stuff going on there for kids during the day. Could have sets based around that premise with civilians and people dressed in period costumes doing educational stuff.Lego could have their cake and eat it too because it would be a perfectly reasonable way to have a disabled knight or a Princess with a hearing aid. >they could do a set with a fantasy LARP group.That'd make a great set, even if they went full retard and made it look like those goofy american pool noodle swords it could make a fun playset, but Lego City LARPers would probably be one of the most well received one wave City subtheme.
>>10743415>we have Mars Mission at home
>>10743635>Adventurers>exploring old abandoned castles>Monster Fighters' sequelLiterally too good to be true
>>10740579The background in the entry port is a little tacky. Should just be space.
>>10743989ya ain't slick
>>10743718>>10743788There is an order limit. 999 of any one piece.
How come out of every autistic hobby- LEGO has the sexiest women. Like seriously look at that pretty eggless hag cabbage girl, the qt Latina from promobricks, the French babe from hothbricks, other YouTubers (not tranny faggot) etc.Every other hobby is full of fuggos
I feel like buying a bunch of Friends crap just to get stuff in preparation for AC next year…
>>10743415>finally an original Space theme>it's Lego Cityi have mixed feelings about this.
>>10743451i hope the car transporter is as good as the 2013 one, but with that price, i'm not optimistic (2013 truck was priced double than that)
>>10744899>pretty eggless hag cabbage girlWho?I've wondered this myself. I feel like Lego must pay these cute influencer girls to promote the hobby to normalize it to women and normies.
>>10743415Looks like another bug hunt!
>>10743415I wonder if it's supposed to be related to the indian moon mission. I guess we'll have to see if they included the usual poop pieces to find out.>>10743476Ah yes, the famed "autism horse".
