because they'd rather associate sets with an established theme rather than create a new theme from scratch. These days it requires too much effort since they have to create lore and shit, it's easier for them to just use generic minifig heads with one or two special outfits and attach it to city
they put a city in the background of the art

>>
>>8794491
>>8794496
diversity of interactive elements is actually a really positive thing. using up all the pieces on a single main structure or vehicle just to make it a little bit bulkier and prettier is diminishing returns when as is it already perfectly conveys what its trying to represent and this way makes room for a lot of extra components that greatly expand the possible scenarios in terms of playability

I really wanted to like this series. And some sets are excellent, but it had so much repetition between the sets. Are they out of ideas?

>big truck
>small buggy/jeep
>transport helicotper
>speed boats

That sums up the majority of the sets. The actual jungle is almost always (>>8794470 this is the exception) an alibi piece of like 50 bricks so you get at least something else besides the same looking vehicles. The vehicle to jungle parts ratio must look like 80 to 20%.

I would have prefered if there would have been just jungle landscape with maybe a tiny car and 2-3 figures instead of having those 3 large sets with very similar vehicles. A lot of missed potential in my opinion.

I also would have been very cool if the theme of that crashed plane in the jungle would have been the main theme for all the sets, with little white plane parts in all of the sets to be found.

But whatever, still one of the stronger city themes of the recent past i think.

Speaking of which, you know how the fiber optic system (a battery box, a wire, and a led brick thingy) in this set cost lego more to manufacture than the whole set sold for? Well, did you ever check what this thing sold for? 74 USD in 1996. Those 3 pieces were costing them over $70 to manufacture for some reason.

It's sad that lego thinks they need to add ninjashit to stuff like this. Throw those minifigs in the drawer and what you're left with is is a really nice pagoda. They and the branding they carry are completely unnecessary for this set.

>>
>>8794608
If Ninjago was just ninjas I'd be happy with it, nothing wrong with having a couple ninjas running around your oriental whatever scene. But they're not just ninjas, they're whatever gay plotline is happening this season and the minifigures look stupid. Someone not familiar with it wouldn't even think about that and it's for that reason that they're able to do it, but whenever I see them all I can feel is disgust at seeing them. Even hearing their names read off triggers some fight or flight response in me. But I guess that's just how it goes when you're a grown ass man trying to buy toys not just made for but catering to children.

This set was 450 pieces for 80 bucks making it like the most overpriced set of that era. As much as i loved the adventures theme as a kid i could never afford it or more likely thought i could buy better sets for so much money.

That was the "we don't know what any of our sets cost to manufacture" era, so you had lots of stuff that was a great deal and lots of stuff that was horribly overpriced.

It's funny, I bought Ninjago City Gardens because it's a gorgeous cyberpunk cityscape (bordering on overwatch-esque solarpunk). I couldn't care less about Ninjago as a theme, so will be selling the figures for a tidy sum on the side.

From a marketing perspective it makes sense to tie more experimental sets to an established theme, and at least it means that Lego is more open to experimenting with aesthetics a bit more in themes with a known audience. It's a pity that we have to deal with all the tacked on bullshit, but you can sell them off for a decent amount.
>>
>>8794646
Were it not for Ninjago, we wouldn't have gotten Lego Tron. That's not to say I like that everything Lego does is now under the Ninjago umbrella. It's a crying creative shame. I miss Hidden Side.

Why was 2006 so comfy? Even if you don't count the toa or even the piraka, literally every set is worth looking at. Hate the fact I got out of my lego phase by the time I was in 5th grade cause shitty inner city school and they way being creative and building was seen as fag behavior

>Voya Nui is much like Mata Nui but it's secrets are ominus as opposed to mystical
>a return to the more primal surviving the elements/impending darkness
Metru saga was all about being a dystopian society that fell apart due to political corruption and invasion, and the island being more of a city gave it a much different tone. Look at how the focus was about evacuating the populace, as opposed to trying to obtain a mcguffin. Sure, there were the great disks, but they were a much smaller part of the prequel saga, and while Keetongu kinda counts, a master of venoms doesn't click the same way the mask of life did in bring back that 01 treasuer hunt feel with the golden masks.

Legacy Destiny’s Bounty. Manages to be both beautiful and functional. Sturdy and looks good at almost any angle. Has a deck big enough to hold all seven included minifigs with room to spare. Includes plenty of little nooks and crannies to explore when playing, but they fold up nice and securely when not wanted. No side build to drain resources from the main event; every single piece is dedicated to making the ship better. Excellent price per part ratio and value. Unique enough to be the keystone of someone’s collection, but generic enough to just be a gorgeous ship sailing on the seven seas.

I’d HIGHLY recommend everyone getting a copy of this set, even just to hold on to sealed. There’s no doubt that this thing will skyrocket in price in a few years, since it’s a beauty that Lego can’t really improve on without it being totally different.

What are the opinions on 2 seater lego cars? I personally love them, and I liked that the 2020 Speed Champions lineup made it possible to have some even if with 8 stud wide cars, I hope they don't revert that with the 2021 lineup.

But I know there are some haters of it out there, saying that its too wide not fit on lego roads.

But is it possible to make it 2 seater cars without 8 stud wide setup, that still allows enough detail on the side of the car?

Should 2 seater 8 stud wide cars become the standard and have non-speed champion sets, like city sets also include them?
>>
>>8795238
I like the 8 wides too, but it's frankly embarrassing how that widt is even needed when it's possible to do with 6 wide ones already yet for some arbitary reason they refuse to do it. Is it really just afol city autists screaming about consistency or what?.

The movie one is nice, sure, but the Legacy one is not only cheaper, but it also replicates the functions it has on the show AND is more visually striking.

well as with the car you posted there is actually cheating with the surfboard (hate that lego team moved it down completely destroying the aesthetic reason it was there in the first place but nvm that). Without the surfboard the panel pieces that allow space for 2 passengers on the inside make the outside flat and hard to detail.

That's why making a 6 stud wide car a 2 seater and have it external detailing on the side at the same time, very very hard.

I disagree, the whole mechanism beneath the build that is supposed to flip the engines out for flight mode seems completely useless, the engines barely slide out of their housing and you really have to tug on the "fins" It just feels poorly designed.
>>
>>8795306
Are you sure you’re not retarded or something? Sure, the side engines are a bit small, but they actually slide in and out very smoothly with the fins. It’s quite an elegant design that handles the odd angles well.

Plus the fact that it hides away so well from most angles is amazing- that’s how you can use it as a normal ship and ignore the flying part if you want.

Didnt Lego set out to find an environmentally friendly alternative to ABS plastic by 2020 or something? I remember reading something like that a few years ago.

Isnt it still has harmful as ever?
>>
>>8795830
I think they did invent some biodegradable plastic but they only use it for pieces that aren't design to hold and stress because they are a lot weaker

I only remember this video of introducing the line, but dont know how much actual plant lego pieces are now made with this plastic

>>8795830
Yeah, they’ve spent hundreds of millions on a Sustainable Materials Center. I think it will be a long time before we see any big changes, though. Plant-based disposables make sense because you throw that shit away, finding another material that meets the same criteria as the lego brick will be a challenge.

8 wide should be for trucks only. It's way too much for minifigs. SpeedChampions are mosly focused on sport cars so 6 wide is correct size. 8 wide should be for trucks, offroad and heavy duty. For example if for some reason SpeedChampions wanted to make Hummer H1 then it should be 8 wide indeed.

Nothing wrong with a theme that based on a Chinese folktale that panders to Asians.

It's the fact that the Chinese Communist Party has their hands in the production of the theme that is concerning, not only because it makes the sets cost more than they should, but it also directly funds the CCP, a group responsible for much of today's great evils, like actual concentration camps and colonization and natural resource draining in Africa.

I mean, buying lego in general probably helps fund them anyway, but to a lesser degree like most other products. I draw the line at directly handing them money; they're gonna have to work a bit harder to get my cash.

Everything that produced/sold for a Chinese audience requires Chinese involvement. So for any business to operate in China, there must be some Chinese members on staff or partnership with a Chinese company.

Combine this with the fact that ALL Chinese companies with any success at all have to be, at least partially, government owned, and you have the terrible situation where the CCP can make mandates on products for their markets, which often trickle over to Western markets as well.

It’s what made ActivisionBlizzard awful, what makes nobody like Epic (Tencent), and why so many people hate Monkie Kid, as it’s produced in open cooperation with the CCP and can’t be found in regular stores in the US, only in LEGO stores and more freely in China. Plus, the sets are priced/valued as if they’re licensed, but it’s an original IP, meaning that licensing money is going directly to China.

Shouting "CONSSOOOOMMMEERR" at every opinion you don't like isn't an argument - especially when it's not consooming.
Consooming is buying license shit no matter how bad it is. It's supporting shit because of some misplaced sense of brand loyalty.
Lego gave us a new line based on ancient literature. That's a step in the right direction. Criticize the aesthetic, criticize the builds, but "waah chink pandering" and "consoom" just show you're retarded burgers and eurofags who hate things because it's popular to hate them. You're too fucking addled on porn and toxic nostalgia to form your own opinion.

Any ideas for a compact exhaust?
This one interferes with the front wheel and moving it back a stud interferes with the back one.
>>
>>8796776
well, personally I think it’s silly and borderline unrealistic to think a country or company would do anything the ethical way. why would I expect a company to do anything but what increases their market share? That shit doesn’t concern me, I’m going to them for strictly a product

There’s a difference between ‘aggressively entering new markets with different ideas’ and ‘funding coups to weaken other states so you benefit.’ A difference between ‘having profit as the primary motive of your company’s business’ and ‘gutting your product to reduce cost while using threats of market manipulation to stifle out or absorb all competitors’. Between ‘being greedy and wanting a nation to do well so everyone in that nation adores you’ and ‘having no loyalty to any one nation and letting the highest bidder dictate your actions’.

I don’t want to get even more into politics here in these LEGO threads, but long story short Monkie Kid is a perfect case study of what’s wrong with this world, and anyone too invested into it is, knowingly or not, making the world that much worse bit by bit.

Eh, if I do that it just looks weird, the wheel base is long enough as it is already.
Think I've found a solution, though. Making the rear 5-wide and angling the exhaust piece in just a bit with a 1x1 plate with bar on the other side of the wheel looks okay.

>>8796872
Nah, then it looks like a brodozer.
>>
>>8796886
Very nice, 5 wide looks good with the weird 3x4 dimensions of the crate piece.

I can't fault an average dumbfuck afol for not understanding an ounce of geopolitics and thus seeing Monkiekid as something good.

>8 wide should be for trucks only. It's way too much for minifigs.
You don't adress the question tho.
Isn't it stupid that lego cars are single seaters?

I think they are. 20 years ago 4 stud wide cars were the minifig scale, but not we evolved beyond that and we do 6 stud wide cars.

Aren't 8 stud wide cars accaptable if that means that they are for 2 minifigs?

If you can make a 2 seater sportscan as detailed as the speed champion ferrari or nissan gt-r in less than 8 studs, I would be happy to see it.
>>
>>8796906
7 wide would be enough but the system isn't really built for odd measures
>>
>>8796900
I mean, if there was discussion on build designs and new parts/colors, I’d still be pissy but would have to accept the discussion as valid/legitimate. But pretty much all positive Monkie Kid discussion I see is either just mindless CONSOOM or one freak that simps for a Nya knockoff. There’s very rarely a sense that these posts are coming from actual lego fans.

I mean, I’m a big defender of Ninjago, but it still has its flaws and stinker sets. Most of the time if I’m getting a set I’m wondering what I can use the parts for, not just making a big display of by-instruction displays.

Sorry to interrupt, but this conversation has made me want to take my GT-R and build me a NISMO titan truck. I'll post pics at a later time.

I don't personally think any of the sets are bad, some are certainly meh and the prices jacked up don't help, but overall the theme is more on the plus side, the colors, techniques used, I mean just look at the wings of this thing. Even tho the sidebuild is near garbage the ship is gorgeous.
The cartoon is one of the best Lego has produced and puts Ninjago's jank to shame by a countrymile. I love that style and wish it was adopted for most of lego cartoons going forward as it makes the unrealistic moves the minifigs make much more bearable to look.

But I can't ignore the context and will not. Fuck monkeyshills.

>Okay, I gotta admit, there’s some smart cookies designing those sets
Apparently, having the canopy that way means you have to lay the minifig inside flat down.
If you put it on the other way around the figure can actually sit upright.

white dragon horse jet 8.8c per piece
legendary flower fruit mountain 8.7c per piece
pigsy's foodtruck 8.4c per piece

secret hq 8.7c per piece

That's not overpriced, it's a good price. Some sets have terrible prices but the actually good ones are priced fairly. You can find terrible prices in every theme. You faggots just look at the set with the bad ppp ratio and apply it to the whole theme.
>>
>>8796992
Well sure but innovative part use should always be acknowledged, even if it’s not particularly useful innovations.

Like the Legacy Zane mech. Not only does it use silver beehives for thrusters, but it also has spring green studs inside covered by trans blue studs, to give a 3D effect that singular pieces alone can’t achieve.

Or hell, just the obsession with hot dog pieces. I guess that angle bend is just that useful. Or using pink frogs as cherry blossoms.

the issue with monky kid is that they just put far too many things into one set in order to inflate the price. and then the builds are so complex that they inflate the price even more.

I noticed that legos aren't to clearance in my country anymore. Shops that specify in selling legos, start to bump up the prices the moment something is no longer in production. checked the other day, a minifig scale rally car that was up on the shelves for 10$ in 2017. The shop lists it for $30.

I don't understand how retailers can do that. I understand some scalper buying it and try selling it on ebay, but the retailers themselves scalping the sets is bullshit.

The moment they realized how much the new X-wing is sought after they bumped up the countrywide price from $45 to $70, in the retail store. Wtf is going on?

>>
>>8797262
If I admitted I forgot write "Star Wars FANS are retarded" that would make me the retard

The car is an old set, they just think it has increased value over time. The nex X-wing like you said is new and they charging up the ass cause they know people will buy it regardless.

It's weird but I took an older piece of white LEGO (one that was scratched to hell but NOT yellowed and a piece of knockoff and they both melted and burned at about the same rate. So I'm not sure how "Flame Retardant" LEGO really is. I'd be curious to see if there are any tests out there.

Also, More curiously... Why do the technic beams no matter how long they soak in the Hydro stay yellowed? Are they LESS flame retardant? More?

How much can 200€ get me on bricklink if I just want to build cool structures and give zero fucks about minifigures?
>>
>>8798491
Instead of bricklink, consider buying a bulk unsorted lot on craigslist (optimal, since you won't have to pay for shipping if it's local) or ebay. This way you can get a huge amount of parts for a comparatively low price. The sellers usually strip the minifigs before they put the lots up for sale.
>>
>>8798496
I wanted to more or less plan and choose the bricks I want though
>>
>>8798507

how much you get out of your monies is dependent on what bricks you choose then
>>
>>8798507

$200-300 can go a long way if you're not after anything too interesting and pick a good store. It'd also be easy to say its not nearly enough once you get into a big project, but, it CAN be enough

Find a store that parts out multiples of sets, and prices parts at or below average. It is so easy to get married to one store because of one thing you found, but wind up overpaying for everything else in the order.

It's hard to know what to recommend parts wise without knowing build styles, or if you have any collection already. I bought some insanely cheap friends lots off of ebay just to get some tan buildings started, after selling the mini dolls I basically got 20lbs of lego for less than $100
