To add something productive to the discussion, here's a quick set of Pythagorean triangles you can do with standard building blocks I made for reference. Horizontal distances are in studs, vertical in plates. The 36.9° slope (fifth from the left, 8 studs + 15 plates resulting in 10 studs) is particularly "nice", because that's roughly what the slope of normal stairs in the real world is.

And the winner of the "weirdest part I've ever got" goes to ... this bent 1x10 plate (Lego-4477, GDS-507) from the Qman/Enlighten set 2719 "Black Shark Cruiser". It's not just bent, it's also slightly flexible in this place. I guess it got into contact with some nasty solvents at some point?

But this set is cursed for me. One of the turbines (Lego-49148, GDS-1339) is missing, and one of the big trans-yellow windscreens (Lego-40995) is milky-white in two places. Maybe also a case of a solvent attacking it, though heating would be a possibility too.

Oh well. It's a slick enough ship model, but too large for me, so it'll end up in parts to build other stuff from anyway. I might get replacement for some of the parts with my next bulk order from Gobricks or whatever, who knows. Besides, I prefer the colour scheme of the Team Blue vehicles in that series.

Can anyone tell me how to locate a parts lists for a bluebrixx set?

I am interested in "Western Farm". On the bluebrixx website it says "Made by XingBao
Label: BlueBrixx-Pro
Manufacturer No: 103412"

How can I get a parts list or a pdf of the instructions? I registered to log in to the bluebrixx website and I see they have some instructions available to download but not all.

>>8918949
If you know someone who bought it, they have access to the part list in their orders overview - where you can order replacement parts. Otherwise, I don't think there's any other easy place to get it from.

Not that LEGO would ever want to license weeb shit, even if it's one of the most mainstream of all animes. They shot down a cool Apple store LEGO set on the idea website just because dealing with Apple would predictably be a bitch.

Canada here, had to request a missing part for my Pelican, had extras of one wedge plate and not enough of another. Can't speak for EU service but this was one of the fastest turnarounds I've ever had from them, and I've been buying the sets (and requesting missing parts) from the beginning.

I don't care nearly enough to bother, especially since the only option the Amazon web site gives you is to send the whole thing back instead of ordering replacements. It was just the brick tub (GJD25) anyway, so I basically got 476 instead of 480 generic parts. I'd be more annoyed if it was a proper model set.

>I'm curious what you're trying to build

I'm not building anything in particular. I'm a fan of classic Lego Space stuff, in particular ice planet and the trans orange pieces.

So i basically ordered a couple of different pieces that might be useful in trans orange and also some in black to get over the $30 free shipping mark.

What i bought is a mixture of things that:
- are not available from Lego in that color (or i'm not aware off)
- whats annoying to get (like i bought 20 of the 8-long antennas which are super awesome, but nobody on Bricklink has 20 at the same time)
- just useful things like the space wheels because why not

Pic related is what i got for $30. Everything on the pic x10, only the antenna x20.

The quality is very good. No complains here so far.

What i find interesting is that the orange dish is trans neon orange, while all other pieces are the "normal" trans orange. Neon is cooler of course, but it did not say on the website that its available at all.

I also thought that they messed up when i saw the blue tiles and the dark blue dishes.. why would i order those i thought. But i re-checked my order.. and i did select those. Maybe i messed up during my order or i simply forgot that at the time i actually wanted those. Whatever.

I will start to look through my wanted lists on Bricklink a bit more in detail and compare prices with Vonado if the pieces are available there too. If so, and if its more special parts (Antenna or the large dish) then i will order there again.
For blue 2x2 tiles alone its probably not worth it though.

In case somebody else wants to collect those, this is what you get from most of the Qman/Enlighten "High-Tech Era" sets in terms of Team Blue. I have 2701 (a small helicopter), but didn't build it yet. I'm missing 2718 (there's a small speedboat in there as a side build), 2720 (a normal boat, a water ski and a small floating base) and most notably 2722 (huge transforming 1000+ pieces mecha). I've got 21 minifigs for the Team Blue in the 17 sets.

Despite this being the smaller side in terms of piece count (and weight), I very much prefer its colour scheme. The ones I enjoyed the most are the ground vehicles, in particular 2705, 2706 and 2710.

If anyone cares about my thought about a specific model, or close-up pictures of any of them, feel free to ask. Now, where the hell do I get 2720 and 2722 from ... (YourWoBB has 2718).

>>8921081
Pretty cool collection and indeed the color scheme is more pleasing to look at than the black vehicles.

>2720 (a normal boat, a water ski and a small floating base)

This set seems to be gone from every store that i could think off.
It was one of the first sets of this range i ordered, but sadly it got lost in transit (got refunded without a problem from "enlighten official store" on Ali).
I really would have liked that base, as actual structures are a bit rare in this range, which is a bit of a shame, because having a some base buildings is always nice.
>>
>>8921081
>>8921117

Whats your thought about 2709 and 2706?
I remade the 2709 into an actual chopper because of the weird design with the moveable engines that get blocked by the main body of the heli.

2706 looks very cool, but if i remember it correctly, the driver can not wear his helmet, otherwise the cockpit won't close. (I don't have it, but i could imagine that problem also exists for 2710?).

2702 is my secret favorite among those ground vehicles, because despite its small size, its a perfectly stable and cool looking mech.
>>
>>8921114
Sure thing.
>>
>>8921121
For the 2709, I wish it was slightly larger. In particular, I'd probably space the two blades a bit further apart and add some gears so that they would rotate in sync - and also be able to be rotated via a "hand of god" gear hidden in the bottom back of the machine. As it is, it's a nice model to view, but annoying to play with.

I have the same problem with 2706 and fitting in a driver - you'd need to raise the back portion of the vehicle and the windscreen by at least a plate height to use a helmet inside. 2710 doesn't have the problem. It's a tight fit there too, but that's because of the side walls, not the height.
>>
>>8921147
>2710 doesn't have the problem

Good to know. I might get this one too then.
Its one of the more obvious Lego inspired vehicles, but looks cool nonetheless.

I built it up to step 4 by now.

One of the track links did fall under the table and i did not notice it at first, becuase there were exactly 120 pieces in the set, +1 that was damaged beyond use (molding error). So i thought i have have 119 useable ones and one that is unuseable. I was already looking on google for a replacement when i stepped on the last piece.

The tracks run perfectly. There are little rubber pieces on each track link, i would say these run as good (or maybe even better) than the big ones Cobi uses.

Besides the tracks, brick quality is very good. The fit is quite tight, and they "click" into each other rather than sliding silently.

There are indeed no stickers in this set (youtube did not lie), and up to that state there are already a couple of prints (cockpit instruments, road wheels, engine part).

Interesting (similar to that Assault Rifle made by Panlos i have built in the past), the name Panlos is nowhere to be found on the instructions. (which is very good, and there is a complete parts list in the back of it too. Really nice).

The figures (5) are good quality too. Different faces, different uniform prints, and different design from Lego while still being rather close.

Close-up of the Panlos Maus crew.

The figures are the same height as Lego, but due to their leg construction they look a bit more stocky. The "belt" of the hip piece is underneeth the "shirt"/torso piece.

Good quality and good ability to stay in pose. Nothing is loose.
(I will replace them with Quan Guan Panzer crew figures with back uniforms though).

And finally a comparison with the Leopard.

Good things about the set:
+ No missing pieces
+ Good clutch/zero loose pieces
+ everything is printed. Inside and outside. There are 6 prints for the drivers compartment alone.
+ its huge
+ full interior
+ price (42€ for 2,2k pieces of that great quality with THAT many prints.. 10/10 if you ask me)

Cons:
- the interior is obviously hidden inside the tank.
Roof of turret and hull can be removed, and while this not that hard, its still annoying.
Its the same as with scale modelling, i built a couple of tanks with full interior, but you only see parts of it if you leave a hatch open.. its just there to make you feel good while thinking about all the details you built, but nobody will ever see them.
Then again, in this case the internal structures gives stability to the whole tank. (could have been done with black bricks too though).

- minifigures do not wear tank uniforms
- 3 weapon sprues were included, only one with german weapons (2nd is US rifles, 3rd is chinese weapons like the big curved sword they carried in ww2)

-the front armor panel is only kept in place by 4 studs. The tank should not be moved while putting pressure there. Sides are very well connected though.

- the gun barrel is very heavy, but at the same time its kept in position by a clever roof construction that slides underneeth the back of the mantlet to hold it from dropping down.

hey guys, first time in /pbbg/, just got the hitler assassination set for pure meme value from aliexpress, it was cheap as fuck, can you recommend a legofag any other sets, possibly historical? I'm not a tank/war machine fag although >>8923546 looks good, if a little too expensive for me
>>
>>8923600
If you don't like tanks/war machines per se, its hard to find "historical" sets. (Well, there is architecture ofc).

For tanks, there are smaller ones available than the huge thing posted above. They come suitable for all wallet sizes.

The Hitler set you got there is from Enlightens "Combat Series". Sadly the rest of the sets are not really historical, but rather "Lego City with green vehicles and army figures":

https://de.aliexpress.com/item/32966295073.html

Some of the vehicles are closer to reality than others, but its play sets with "ww2 army-theme", but nothing serious.

Aside of their tank model sets, Quan Guan does some smaller scaled playsets set in ww2.

The tunnel sets in particular are pretty cool.

They also do a Pokemon range:

What were the odds? At least tt had he cooler ones.
Also, has anyone checked these Among us things? The bricks fit so and so, but are a nice way to get monochrome figs. Colors seem weird, the blue is somewhat between sand blue and medium blue, yellow and white are paler than the regular ones. Mine came with two airtanks but I don't know if it's meant to be that way or a mistake. (A smaller set with a black minifig and remolded pig had an extra right arm and not one but three spare hands)

Two options. Sluban sells an officially licensed Godzilla based on its appearance in KOTM. The downside? It doesn't look good.

2nd time buying, this time I decided to get some minifigs I thought looked cool.
For 10 bucks it was alright, the shark is pretty rough but the rest is pretty solid. Killer Croc has been one of the figs I've been wanting for a while and his quality is pretty much on part with original lego, only issue is his chains had to be manually assembled but I see that as a positive since it comes with 4 chains so I could make them longer without needing the stud pieces.
Next time I will try ordering some Q-man.

There are plenty of skeleton minifigures on Aliexpress though..

Besides, if the skull is in metallic color, it should be no problem?
>>
>>8929242
I underexplained it. It's not illegal, but it's considered taboo and has been censored in lots of media, so certain companies may avoid using skulls in the first place.

I ordered a Super 18k set from Aliexpress, but it's missing a bag. Does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing?
>>
>>8929812

Never had an entire bag missing.
Have you contacted the seller already? If so, did he reply?
>>
>>8929816
I have no choice but to assume it's an entire bag, since I kept track of everything I received and so many parts are missing. I messaged them today but haven't received a reply yet. Fingers crossed I guess.
>>
>>8929846
I only have one 18k set, but its bags were numbered so it would have been pretty easy to find out if an entire bag was missing.

What set did you get?
>>
>>8929852
I ordered the Super18k "the Last of World" Brick Bank set. There are several bags for some numbers. The book doesn't show how many bags there should be per number.

Ready to wreck some Matildas over open sights. Not a lot to say about it, is a nice build and I really like the shells included. The sides of the armor shield are held on by just one stud and Sluban's soft clutch makes it easy for them to come off but that's a minor nitpick.

I think the only bad luck was that the black amogus had only one airtank, not sure the double tanks in purple was a fuck-up or exclusive to the larger sets (There are two lines of 6 sets each, one has around 90 pcs by set and the other one 40)
Also the figs can't sit or stand properly on studs, and the holes to put hands are too small. Seems that they came just a little bit too thick, some modding could fix it.
Here's the rest of the haul. More Dragon Ball but from a different company, and of the little construction guys (I didn't intend to build the robot you get from collecting all 8, but get nice pieces, especially ones that buff my small yellow pool)

Looks decently detailed for the size.
No rifle for the soldier though?

So I found Mega Construx Castle Grayskull on something called ishopag.com for $130, I dug around and found it was a Florida-based company without any red flag reports, and I went ahead and pulled the trigger. Did I just throw my money away?

This guy is from Mis Ladrillos, an Argentine brand. I've also seen a Chinese brand called Tatco using figures that were mostly identical, and guess this is where they came from. It also seems Tatco has replaced those figs with another design. Even to this day, Mis Ladrillos uses the same figs, including old visorless helmets, though none of the fig's pieces are removable. They can still hold Lego accessories in their hands.
Not sure if the bricks themselves are the same. In pics and videos of Tatco it seems that they look and act like Lego. From personal experience ML are slightly, like one or half mm taller than Lego. Length and width are the same, you can try putting ML on top of Lego, but there's not a hint of clutch. And if their studs were barely thinner or of a softer plastic, you could place Lego on top of them. Also all studs are hollow though you can't place rods on them.

This makes me wonder, are Mis Ladrillos bricks their own or "licensed" from another company? And if the former is true, did they take their figs from Tatco or the other way around?

Both the orange ones from this series come with optional grey legs.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005002328735967.html

Hair of 1489 is rubber.
Helmet of 1492 is actually 2 pieces, also made from rubber

1491 comes with a two-colored axe

Quality of all of them is quite nice, especially the prints.
>>
The newer Kopf figures (anything 14xx, really, possibly also 13xx) are quite good in quality. I just wish they'd make fewer superhero stuff, but if it sells, it sells.
>>
>>8937405
If they need to release 5 super heroes to justify the production cost for 1 non super hero then i'm ok with this.

Their Pubg minifigs are pretty nice too.
>>
Is anyone in here into trains?
>>
If i remember it correctly, the Anon who reviewed this set here was pretty fond of it.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001065485142.html

Apparently only the ball joints were not as great as expected though.

But 900+ pieces for 20€ might maybe still be worth a purchase.
>>
Just got a small package from China:
5 black 6x12 plates and 100x 1x1 tiles.
Nothing super interesting i guess and only around 5€. But the seller gave me a free captain america minifigure for free with that order.

A pleasant shopping experience

Hope you like cracks
>>
>>8939541
are they that weak?
>>
>>8939545
Dunno about Knockoffs but the abhorrent quality of Lego's 1x1 tiles turned me off from buying them at all.
1x1 round pieces are likely to crack, but those are small cracks and your piece will survive.
Square ones on the other hand will just fucking break apart.
>>
>>8939930
Ok.. sounds weird. I placed some of them on a plate to investigate.

I remember from my childhood that c-clamps would break, same with the 2- and 3-finger hinges and the 1x4 plate modified to click the cockpit pieces into.
Besides those parts my only really damaged Lego pieces were Torsos with that crack on the side and broken off hands due to rough play.

Can confirm the round tiles cracking, was inspecting a MOC made a couple years ago that had been in safe storage, found that many of the 1x1 light bley round tiles had cracked, some so badly they wouldn't stay on. These were all brand new from the Pick-a-Brick wall. Have come to expect having to replace various trans and clip pieces (some of each were also necessary) but this was a first for me.

Sadly the review parts are in german (in short: he loves it and points out that the quality is similar to Lego and he admires the prints), while the building sections are just music.

Thanks for the link. I already watch the Held and the Bluebrixx channel and really like the trend of people buying and reviewing alternative Klemmbausteine.
>>
>>8942321
its really interesting to see those countless smaller channels promoting alternative brick sets.

I wonder why this became such a thing in Germany in particular.
>>
>>8942365
>I wonder why this became such a thing in Germany in particular.

Could be different factors. Germany is probably in the top 5 markets when it comes to Lego so people are naturally interested in them and the new alternatives which are being promoted by guys like Thomas. Also, the over 1 year long quarantine gave people a reason to spend more time building sets and an opportunity to start their own channels.

I bought nearly a cup of the 1x1 flat round bley round tiles for finishing projects. I haven't had one crack yet. I'll be sure to keep an eye out for it. I've had a ton of brown crack over the years and various clips that were put under strain. But that's about it.

try to find full figures, they usually have all accessories from that wave, ask the seller to show you full figure and what parts they have (since they only show printing now, not the full figure)
For example Nexo knights had the sword molds

>Loz is just LEGO resized to 75% and the minifigures have bendable knees
>Stickers are shit
>Builds are made in CAD as a lot of connections are stressed, unable to properly fit or don't allow proper movement/interaction (Had to remove the donuts on top because of a faulty stud interaction and they kept falling off)
For the rest, it's cute. Wouldn't say it's worth the money unless you get it for like $1, but it's cute.

>3/4 Lego scale
wow what? That's interesting, I take it Loz studs don't work with Lego scale?
>>
>>8946974
They absolutely don't fit together, Loz even has their own separator in the same shrunken size. It's adorable but I already felt like a clumsy giant with LEGO, this isn't helping.
>>
>>8946592
>>8946974
I think that building one or two sets could be fun do to the fact that the brain automatically looks for the well known pieces (lets say a 1x6 or 1x8 plate) at the right size, but none of them will be in that size with LOZ.
>>
>>8947190
Recognizing the shapes and amount of studs was actually really easy, even with the wonky instructions and CAD-level flaws it was built just as fast as a typical LEGO set.

Which is more a sign of how hard LEGO has fallen considering every flaw in the Loz build had me going "I've seen that mistake before, classic IDEAS/Render build".

i found a couple of transparent swords among individual minifigures, but sadly not this one in particular.
