>>9176453Lol it’s not even the best Death Star
how do I get the motivation to take photos about my mocs? I have like a dozen completed mocs I could show everyone, but something about taking photos and then having to edit them is soooo fucking tedious. i wish I enjoyed photography
Red space waifig got a slight update with a new leg piece. Still haven't come up with a name for her
>>9176474>dust collector with no details
>>9176481Just fucking DO IT
Should I bite the bullet?
>>9176481>having to edit themThat's where you fucked up. With the appropriate lighting and lens, they should only need cropping or saving to a format for where you're posting them. Maybe set up one color filter but use the same one for everything. If you're constantly fiddling with it then change your camera settings and light setup instead.
>>9176488At least it actually looks like the Death Star and not a random mess of rooms in a vaguely spherical shape
>>9176474What part of PLAYSET dont you understand? How am I supposed to play with this?
>>9176492Nope, it's shit. Buy the bridge if you're craving spider man
>>9176504anon I didn't think it was possible to miss the point of something this harddumb modelfag
>>9176513Is it shit because it has small rooms? If so, fuck Lego for doing that shit
>>9176523It's shit because it's literally just an office building with spiderman references.
>>9176527what if that's what people wantinstead of a weird partial bridge chunk (with spiderman references)
>>9176527But muh exclusive minfigs
Why does /lg/ hate Dino Island so much?
>>9176497the only camera I have right now is my phone unfortunately. I feel like my lighting setup is okay though. But you're right that I guess I should try to cut out the editing part
>>9176530you're stupid>>9176531don't be stupid
>>9176492God I hate the forehead extender/ears/horns/whatever they also use for Black Panther and Darth Maul. I know I could just remove it if I had any of these figures so its not actually a big deal. But it just looks so bad in all the promotional images
>>9176484Make legs short and name her Redd Dwarth
>>9176545Those are my favorite style of dinosaurs
>>9176547>Phone cameraAnon, you didn't really let the dweebs at the phone store convince you that it's the same as a real camera and lens? Or worse, believed the retards on /g/? They have a lot of software filters built in to compensate the lens and sensor being trash, so that's likely prompting the need for editing, on top of likely not allowing you to manually set a bunch of settings like white balance or shutter speed/aperture.
>>9176557Speaking of Darth maul, why did they change his face? The new one looks like it was put through a faceapp filter
>>9176573uh no none of that. I just don't have a real camera because they cost like hundreds or thousands of dollars. and even if I had the money idk which to buymy phone is a galaxy s7, old by now but yeah
>>9176545because with the luxury of doing an original unlicensed theme where they can do whatever they want, choosing to add a stegosaurus instead of a plesiosaur is fucking gay. that's right - FUCKING. GAY.
>>9176545Do we? I love Dino Island. I've got 4 of those sets, it's one of my favourites.
>>9176578The anon posting their minifigs all the time uses some Canon powershot, but they can clarify if you manage to summon them.But you should also get used to working with what you have before deciding you need to take money out of your Lego budget. Maybe figuring out what the camera is trying to do will help alleviate some of the frustration?
>>9176633>figuring out what the camera is trying to do will help alleviate some of the frustrationcan you clarify what you mean by this sorry
Do your find that Lego makes your life better or worse?
>>9176545Because me mum refused to buy me the research compound
>>9176641better. it is my only creative outlet because I am too lazy to learn any other creative pursuit
>>9176545Why would anyone hate kino?
>>9176638I don't know what your source of frustration is. The details mainly pertain to how light is entering the lens but some common things off the top of my head:>Colors always seem to be assManually set white balance against a white lego panel temporarily placed in your scene - phone might also be applying a weird filter automatically>All pictures seem to be washed outGet your filthy finger grease off the lens. This is also a common problem with phone cameras due to their size.>Pictures always seem blurryShorter shutter time or get a tripod or more light>Focus is always wrongYou're within the min focus distance of the camera lensA lot of these things are automagically done by most phones but maybe it has a manual mode.
>>9176633>The anon posting their minifigs all the time uses some Canon powershot, but they can clarify if you manage to summon them.This is what I use
>>9176624Only one who went to loli was you. That anon said red dwarf, not red little girl.
What's the best software for lego digital design?
Bros here is my Covenant Locust from the original Halo Wars
>>9176708super clean build m8 thumbs up
The head can rotate, articulate upwards to a 90° angle, and the "mouth" can open to place its beam effect
Last photo, a pesky mongoose attempts to evade the locust
>>9176708damn nice. I have a question how is the part selection for making covenant vechicles in purple these days? I remember back in like 2010 the problem with making halo covy vechicles is that there were so few parts in purple that most moccers just made them in dark blue
>>9176737There is a whole shit load of purple curved slopes, wedges, and tiles. I just pulled up the color guide for those part categories as I designed it so I knew what was available. I had greater issue with olive green for my UNSC vehicles desu
>putting plastic lego directly on concrete bricks
>taking lego outside

>>9176755>>9176789>2 image slots for frogposting and tranime posting
Just a reminder
>>9176812>>9176794Very nice, very reddit, i upvoted you so the chuds can see a good post thanks berniebro
>>9176737>>9176751I imagine Friends really helped fill out the parts list for purple bricks
>>9176832Yes it has also bolstered the selection of magenta parts, so most covenant vehicles are quite possible now. Since Chima have there been any themes supplying olive green?
>>9176822Friendly post is now reddit?
>>9176812What about complaining that the quality of parts has dropped, the price of sets has increased, and the sets are now closer to model kits targeted at adult collectors rather than an endlessly reusable building toy designed for children?
>>9176872>the sets are now closer to model kits targeted at adult collectors rather than an endlessly reusable building toy designed for children?Retarded and factually incorrect.
>>9176872>the price of sets has increasedBecause all sets needs to be D E T A I L E DSeriosuly. Most of the sets could be much smaller and still have same finctions.
>>9176872Jang has proved lego is CHEAPER now.
>>9176892This is true, if you adjust for inflation, Black Seas Barracuda, which cost $110 in 1989 is $229 in 2021, while Pirates of Barrcuda Bay($200) is less than that but with almost three times the pieces (909 vs 2545).
>>9176908The original 6285 BSB was $110. Though the 2002 rerelease (unchanged) 10040 was $90, which is $136 today adjusted for inflation. So Lego got cheaper after 1989, but sets have gotten more expensive since 2002 due to the increase in piece count because of the smaller pieces nowadays. But the price per piece has certainly gotten cheaper.https://www.brickeconomy.com/set/6285-1/lego-pirates-black-seas-barracudahttps://www.brickeconomy.com/set/10040-1/lego-pirates-black-seas-barracuda

Post interesting connection techniques.
>>9176937NOOOOOOOOOSTOPMY BRAIN THAT NEVER DEVELOPED PAST CHILDHOOD CAN'T HANDLE ADVANCED TECHNIQUESAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH
>>9176937is that legal?
>>9176967It's legal and it's beautiful.
>>9176937Impressive. Yet these areas here look quite fragile, very easy to knock off
>>9177001And this piece
>>9176719This is sick. Back in the day my most viewed picture was a Halo 3 scarab on mocpages which apparently doesn't exist anymore. I went to great lengths to make sure the foot structure could contain its weight, it's probably what burnt me out of making mechs for the next decade. The dark purple is perfect, good stuff.
>>9176844Beautiful moc. Is it yours?
>>9176545>/lg/ hate Dino Island says who?
>>9176950So here's a kragle related question:It's heresy to glue bricks together, right?But, is it heresy to glue broken pieces of bricks back-together?Like if I have a 1x1 round tile that's cracked in half, is it heresy to glue it back together? Or if say I had a couple of c-clips break. Would it be heresy to blue them back-together and then use them as greebling on buildings or whatever?
>>9176545Uninspired sets in comparison to its jungle predecessor
>>9176504Why not buy a shitty Soi Star model kit then?Lego isn't meant to be spherical.
Is there pic related but without the part on the right? Only the 2/3 tall brick with studs on the side part?
>>9176844>Friendly post is now reddit?It obviously struck a nerve because he can't moc, so he has to lash out. I feel like we need a version of the "envisioning an apple" graphic that separates NPCs from real people. >five people are shown a licenseshit set >first person envisions it exactly like the box shows >second person envisions it with some minor changes >third person envisions it as an unassembled pile of pieces for parts fodder >fourth person envisions it as an original build>fifth person has the same build, but with an entire line of similar unique sets
>>9177178>Like if I have a 1x1 round tile that's cracked in half, is it heresy to glue it back together? Or if say I had a couple of c-clips break. Would it be heresy to blue them back-together and then use them as greebling on buildings or whatever?The tolerances are so low that even a drop of glue will probably crowd the connection. For cheap and plentiful pieces, it's probably best to just replace them.
>>9177321Not really, closest would be>Bracket 1 x 2 Inverted (Item No. 99780, pic related)or>Bracket 1 x 2 (Item No. 99781)or>Brick, Modified 1x2 with Studs on 1 Side (but that's a full brick tall and IIRC the side studs are at a different height)
hey /lg/, newfriend here. Me and my friends are looking to build a Lego set together, but we don't want to split the cost to have one person keep itIs there any set that even splits into 3? Or a really good group of sets released in the same wave?
>>9177376There's plenty of sets with several instruction books and small builds, but even so, the others can just look at the PDF instructions from Lego's website.
>>9177379I forgot about the booklets, thanks for the info
I've had dreams that MOCpages came back onlineSo many MOCs were lost forever when it went down.
honestly I kinda like this more than the Lego set
>>9176480Go neck yourself!
>>9176545Egypt = Jungle > Dino Island >>>>>>> Orient Expedition
I've spent like a month and half trying to figure out a username for my lego flickr. I have over 10 pages of names.I just want something pronounceable without numbersit's shocking how literally FUCKING EVERY NAME is taken. Oh you thought of something clever? It was taken in like 2008
>>9177486just do what everyone does>[Name] the Brick [Guy/Dude/Bro/Lad]Chris the Brick GuyJohn the Brick Dudepossibilities are endless
>>9176545It's too different from the Adventurers format.Usually they go to exotic places to retrieve some artifact, and suddenly they're in a secret jungle/island capturing and/or studying dinosaurs with elaborate equipment which implies they were prepared for it.Orient Expedition is better.Dino Island should've been its own separate, more fleshed out theme with different characters.
>>9177492>Tie the Lego Guyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rt1iLvvpXzo>average of like 200 views per video>several videos a week>2 hour long livestreamsit's so weird seeing such a relatively handsome and well spoken person being so passionate about lego. must be autism
>>9176937You're like a baby, watch this
>>9176484I would make the arms yellow
>>9177321umm sweetie, you can't just expect the Lego Group to design new parts to make up for your lack of imagination
>>9177549also here's your pic completedgalatic plastics is legit the best lego moccer of all time IMO. Shit is on a whole nother level
>>9177582boring and dull
>>9177437Brainlet take. Orient Expedition is the best of subthemes.
Is Lego a good tool to plan out action-based storytelling?I mean like as a way to help envisioning, plan and experiment with scenes, kinda like 3d "storyboarding"?
>>9177610yes. Lego comics used to be all the rage back in like 2012.
Thoughts on Lepin?
>>9177626This is the lego threadIf you want to talk about building blocks of another brand (especially deliberate copies) take it to /pbbg/
>>9177437Orient Expedition was good tfmaybe the big sets were underwhelming I give you that but it was solid nonetheless
Hey, i'm the anon on Spain Lego masters, I have made it to the auditions,I have been tell on what the audition will be.They gave you this sphere build, and they ask you to integrate it in a build, and there must be some storytelling. I discarded obvious stuff like stars, planets, sun, in my eyes making just a yellow ball and calling it the sun is not really integrating it, i have my ideas, but what would /lg/ do?
>>9177699How much of the sphere can you change, like can you modify two sides of it to make holes to fit some arms? Either way, I'd make this
>>9177699Mini Death Star
>>9177707I second this
is there a website that i can easily filter sets by release date or retiring date, if any? i may just be ignorant of their features, but using sites like brickset or bricklink kinda make it a slog.
>>9177699The easy answer is some Indiana Jones running from the boulder thing.
Has anyone here ever spent $30 on a single piece on Bricklink? I'm heavily considering it. I don't know if I want someone to talk me out of it or talk me into it.
>>9177790Live your best life anon
>>9177557I think I like this
>>9177797I was afraid someone was going to say something like this and let me make a decision for myself.
>>9177711Yes, when they ask you to integrate it i imagine you could like modify it to make it a part of something bigger. Like this robot boi head for example, in fact i think you could even go further and add the jaw as a separate build. My final idea gets rid of the bottom part of the sphere and is nature related, i won't share tho in case any judge is lurking in here
>>9177790I did it on red ghost shroud. Price now has tripled. Do it i guess
>>9177790If it makes you happy go for it anon
>>9177790I’ve spent over a thousand dollars on a single bionicle piece
>>9177582all that work for THIS?lol
>>9176545>>9176609>>9176648>>9177153>>9177248>>9177437>>9177529I came out of my dark age in fall of 2019 and learned of the Adventurers from people soulposting in this thread. Before the coronahoax I acquired every set from Desert, Jungle and Orient Expedition (except for some of the small shitty Desert polybags.) I don't hate it, but I have no interest in Dino Island. I think a lot of people feel the same because I see sets are relatively cheaper than the other subthemes. Like that one anon said, it does not fit with the established realism of the overall theme. Everything else is kino soul, Dino Island is just weird.
>>9177824The only piece that comes to mind is that super exclusive translucent G2 Gali mask. Pic related.
>>9177851I want to get into adventurers too. How much did it cost you to complete the Egypt collection? it’s likely gonna be rather expensive for me since I live in Australia.
>>9177543>Lego on kitchen cupboards>Lego under the bed>Lego in the closet>Lego displays on living room and kitchen counterJesus Christ and here I thought I had too much Lego
>>9177699Obviously a transformer (rocklord) or syzyphus with a twist - ball pushing man
>>9177543Well-spoken? He isn't even close to well-spoken. He continually says "kinda" and "sorta" to the point that it is unwatchable. He seems unsure of what he is even talking about. Also 6 drawers full of Star Wars shit. Disgusting.Also he calls Adventurers Desert "the egyptian line" and he calls Jungle "the amazon line."
>>9177864Not that anon but I have a tip. I'd recommend purchasing the minifigs and then specialized pieces like tan and/or grey car cabin pieces. Adventurers is really easy to MOC. The biggest hit you might take is from the raised baseplates and some of the extra expensive one off minifigs. Most if which can be worked around.
>>9177543How fast would her panties drop if a woman saw that house?
>>9177790yesnow debating doing it again.
>>9177817>red ghost shroud.what the fuck, it costs 100 euro
>>9177949>20 dollars for a minifig is a lotpsssssshh, watch this
>>9177958>the most expensive listing is 666 euroslol
>>9177965i'll get this bitch one day for my waifig collection

>>9178021Just got it off B&P today, what do you think?
>tfw just found out the Nesquick Bunny I own is actually valuable. I was one step away from giving it away to my little cousin
>>9178033>look at that subtle pale-flesh skin tone>the tasteful hip to waste ratio>oh my god it even has a dual molded hairpiece
>>9177851consider dying you zoomer
when will lego finally start making modern military sets ?they already went back on their old values anyway might aswell go full circle now
>>9178081Which values have they went back on?
>>9178089Not being a political company
>>9178092Lol. Supporting equality transcends politics
>>9178099Nice bait but i'll bite>Implying greedy kikes care about eekwalities
I wanted to make a variety of not so humanoid brickbuilt animalesque aliens that are still close in scale to minifigures. What are the best sources of inspiration or guides to make small brickbuilt monsters/animals/tinymecha?
>>9178099celebrating mental illness is not supporting equality
>>9178135>Says the adult intensively discussing childrens toys on an online forum
>>9178163you believe a false preconception that toys are only for children
>>9178177you believe a false preconception that everything you don't agree with is mental illness
>>9178180believing you are of the opposite sex is a mental illness akin to schizophrenia, chopping off your dick, cutting off your breasts, injecting opposite sex hormones are mentally deranged behaviors
>/lg/ is having the same retarded argument again
>>9178232Wish we didn't have to, if TLG could avoid making political statements
>>9178123The creator 3 in 1s usually have some interesting brickbuilt animals
>>9178236we wouldn't have to if you faggots didn't get triggered over rainbow coloured plastic
>>9178263>toys for children celebrating people chopping their dicks off aren't an issue at all
Who fucking cares
>>9177699Are you familiar with that myth about Heracles and Atlas? It could work if you figure out how to put that globe build on a minifigure.
>they already violated one that was in line with their principles, why not violate one that's against it?>they did x, why not y? Is drawing false equivalences a sign of autism? I feel like I see it here a lot
>>9178288No it's just a general sign of being an uneducated american
>>9178288In what way is the faggot nigger brown and tranny flag in-line with their principles more than violence/warfare? We have one fag set, thus an outlier. As far as violence/warfare we have:>Star Wars, series with dismemberment, plenty of shooting people, dead younglings. One of TLGs best selling themes>Indiana Jones Nazi truck, Jeep, fictionalized flying wing, plenty of figs with guns. Also features Soviets with some of their vehicles. Representation of 2 brutal regimes that claimed millions of innocent lives>Overwatch: FPS franchise where you kill people>2 different WWI Biplanes with onboard machine guns. One belonged to le ebil Germans>realistic cartridge based firearms introduced with Western theme and original Batman sets.>nearly every original theme is based around some type of conflict between opposing factions utilizing weaponry and war vehicles. Themes like castle and pirates are based loosely on real historical periods of warfare, stabbing, shooting, and especially in the case of Pirates; torture and rape>the Colloseum was just released. The purpose of this real life structure was to house fights to the death between slaves for the amusement of a crowd of 50,000. Animals were regularly slaughtered by humans, or chained together and forced to kill each other.
>>9178320>one fag setmake it two
>>9178320who fucking cares
>>9178320i'm too lazy to argue about everything and i'm not saying you're wrong but pirates, knights, ninjas, cowboys etc have been really cartoonized in modern culture and children don't associate them with actual violence and warfare
/pol/ ruins another thread. Congrats
>>9178364>only /pol/ could not like homosexualsAnon most people don't like homosexuals
>>9178343The anon who argued about this shit earlier made a dumb post which warranted a response
>>9178386only /pol/ has to bring it up in every thread on every fucking boardbefore 2016 we didn't have to read about fags and trannies every day literally everywhere on this whole site
>>9178386Most people don't fucking care
>>9177699Spaniard here, build the Atomium.
Lets talk about Lego, which sets have you bought in 2021? Looking forward to any others?
>>9178469I've bought so much I don't remember it all. Medieval Blacksmith has been the best set I've bought all year, though.
>>9178185How is it different than regular cosmetic surgery?Are you as ardently against that too?
>>9178469Ninjago city gardens, Medieval blacksmith, Spring lantern festival and a couple of smaller (older) sets. Nothing else of interest yet, except maybe the Speed Champions Chevrolet Corvette.
>buy Lego at the store>ask them to gift wrap it so they think Im buying it for a kidAnyone else knows this feel?
>>9178501No, I'm not ashamed of my hobbies.
>>9178320the principles are "will this make us money and not get us flamed on twitter" so stop being a fucking spastic build your own gas chamber, buy a chink one, or fuck off
>>9178469I bought this, really enjoy it
>>9178501I don't ask for giftwrap but if they ask if I want it, I'll say yes cause it's nice to open a present for yourself. :^)
>>9178506>legos desired market is twitter not children
>>9178469bought this year>barracuda bay>zane's titan mech>finished my overwatch collection>hidden side graveyard>3in1 toy store, beach buggy, space rover, cyberdrone, dune buggy, underwater mech, 2017 space shuttle>new x-wing>lego store>anakin's anniversary podracer>ghost rider charger, black panther dragon ship, all the marvel mini mechs>city ice cream truck, monster truck>insectoids planetary prowler, used but in flawless conditionthink that's about itwhat i'm planning to get in the forseeable future:>haunted house>medieval blacksmith>3in1 castle, pirate ship, surfer house, space mech>speed champions chevrolets>undecided on the new harry potter sets>classic batmobile>maybe something from star wars, like the non-ucs millennium falcon, mandalorian fighter and new slave 1>ninjago submarinealso trying to find a good deal on assembly square and corner garage before they get retiredmost likely getting the daily bugle but that's probably somewhere further down the line
>>9178483>are you against regular cosmetic surgeryYes
>>9178517not wanting to draw their ire and marketing to them are different things
>>9178521oops forgot to delete beach buggy once i realized it's actually called dune buggy
>>9178521>haunted housei'm so disappointed they decided to put all the adventurers references in THAT fucking set of all of them. what does adventurers have to do with haunted houses? it's not even a good haunted house, most of the space is taken up by the technic stuff
>>9178531It's a goddamn insult to Adventurers is what it is.
>>9178523Dumb. Dont (you) me
>>9178545I'm for it when it comes to correcting cleft palettes and other birth defects, helping burn victims or those with traumatic injuries, especially facial. I'm not for creating new deformities.
>>9178531>>9178542>Designers wanted to revive Adventurers>Suits say no because City Jungle didn't sell all that well and it overlaps with the new NInjago island wave>They find a way to still give it a nod that is better than nothing
Who likes lego minecraft
>>9178624I'm not autistic enough to like minecraft or ldd mocs
>>9177965Prices on certain figures have gone through the roof. Some of the vintage figures I use to collect like Dark Forest and Pirates Armada use to go for $15-20 a piece for the rarer ones and are now all $50+.The knight with the white plums from Black Knight's Castle I had bought 3 for $28 a piece back in 2019 thinking that was a ton of money and now you can't find one for under $100.
how many lights do you use for taking pictures of mocs? Do I need a full 3 point lighting? Or just like 1 light? or does it even really matter?most lighting guides for like toys I found are based on atmospheric lighting not like a neutral MOC lighting
>>9178639Seeing how much they are these days I really regret not buying more back in 2011.
>>9178643a ton of light but applied indirectly by bouncing it off surfaces
>>9178345Cowboys point may stand if the main good guys weren't the U.S. Army
>>9178658It's gotten to a point where I'm actually considering selling some of the figures I amassed since I have thousands tucked away and they've all grown exponentially in value. I've never sold any before and bought out a bunch of collections years ago on Bricklink for cheap.I was thinking about purging some of the cowboys and indians I have and to focus more on doing a castle diorama.
>>9178723now seems like a good time to sell imo. Doing it on BL is pretty easy too. Doesn't have to be all of them either.
>>91784692021 being the year my Dark Ages ended so far i bought:Pirates of Barracuda Bay 376 Town House with Garden 361 Garage675 Snack Bar6683 Hamburger Stall6376 Breezeway Cafe6401 Seaside Cabana6405 Sunset Stables5771 Hillside House31009 Small Cottage8876 Scorpion Prison Cave31111 Cyber DroneRate my sets /lg/
>>9176513How the fuck does this not come with a Gwen Stacy figure?
>>9178469Ship in a bottle and Trouble on tatooine.Some of the characters from the newest cmf(pug, surfer). I'm holding out hoping the gingerbread house comes back in stock sometime.
>>9178778Brainless drone with far too much expendable money
>>9178778Good taste>>9178803bitter broke incel
>>9177790>Has anyone here ever spent $30 on a single piece on Bricklink?You are like a little baby.Come back when you've spent more than $50 on a single piece, more than once.
>>9177790My goat says hi.
>>9177949Does this minifig really have the rough-textured helmet and airtanks?If so, it's a hard pass.
>>9176844you should use this as a proxy
This creator boar is pretty sweet, I think it’s my fav of all the builds
>>9178803lol how broke are you? Set i paid the most for out of this list apart from Barracuda Bay was 376 Town House which i paid 25 euros (or about 30 burger bucks) for
>>9178879Then used the rest of the parts to make a speeder and an artsy type build
>>9177790Do minifigs count? My used Lego Island Infomaniac was 30 leafs. The CWC tie is just icing on the cake.
Why did Lego lotr sucked as bad as it did?
>>9178523Thank you sensible anon
>>9178937I think the sets that made sense to do first were well done, I suspect they were holding some of the better ideas for potential later waves. Now the hobbit sets were poorly done outside of Smaug’s mold and Bag End.
>>9177543>you have to be autistic to be into my hobbyOr maybe hes just a cool guy

I just added a minidoll to my parts order because of the minidoll anons. What am I in for?
>>9179282Are you gonna play with it before you cum on it?
>>9179259He's good when he posts but I've barely seen anything of him lately
>>9179282You should get her some animal companions
>>9179259I really feel bad for the guy. He was putting out the best lego YT content bar none with knowledgeable analysis and objectivity. He got dicked over by happenstance when YT got sued for targeting ads at kids and jang's income crapped out. I give him credit for sticking with it. He had to do a ton of work for free while in youtube purgatory and rebuild his channel while turning to patreon to get funded. Now he's at the mercy of big donors that want the livestreams and exclusive content or w/e.All things considered I understand the hit his content has taken, but it's still there and noticeable. I wish he would go back to pointing out some of the history of pieces and colors and fun details, but lately lego's own decline in quality and overpricing have given him plenty to talk about.If you find someone better let us know, because my search for other reviewers has made me appreciate him even more and now I get the gnajbricks videos spoofing people that say awesome every other sentence in the fake reviews that are just advertisements.
>caring about youtubersDisgusting
>NO YOU MUST INCLUDE RARE MINIFIGS! NO ONE BUYS LEGO FOR THE SET!Are minifig fetishists the reason why Lego stop making boxed mini and mid size none minifigs compatible star wars sets?Is it so hard to ask to get some vehicle sets like the mid scale star destroyer from 2010?
>>9179369I want a midi scale Expanse line so much bros
>>9178567The shock is not that there are decent looking people into Lego but rather how, unlike how the people who consistently and systematically put out Lego reviews make some serious bank from their videos, this dude goes through so much effort putting out all this content and only a couple people watch, probably making less than a dollar per video. And he has been at it for years so it's not like he's some deluded newbie who started a month ago hoping to become the next Jang.Wasn't trying to rag on the guy, hats off to him, just found it a little curious.
>>9179355Hi Jang, stop beating your wife up you sad fuck.
>>9179381Ships from The Expanse all kinda look the same desu
I got a motorcycle shell so naturally I had to use it for a hoverbike
>>9179444looks cool, I like the inside of the intake >>9179448you aren't important
>>9179355the fact that his content plummeted when the cash stopped raining is proof that he was in it for the money more than anything else.Look at this dude >>9177543 >>9179409. Youtube gives you around 2 dollars per 1000 views, his videos have like 200 to 300 views and he keeps putting them out.
I've been trying to make a conscious effort to make hoverklocki in other colors besides basic blue, but I just really love the color.>>9179452Thanks!
>FANS VOTED FOR THIS AND THE FIGS BUT WHERE ARE THE MINIFIGS?? I'M NOT BUYING LEGO ANY MORE!!I don't know who are the people that lego been talking to. But there is a clear track of thought from Lego over the years with the star wars set they are releasing. Around 2000's you have both the smaller scale set (without figs) that would give you a mini scale vehicle that is accurate enough and cheap. Then they started to add figures to them such as the "ball" set (plastic planet like ball, a stand, the vehicle and a fig). and that morphed into the current micro fighter which people pretty much used as a way to get rare figures for cheap. At this point I don't even think it is children/parents buying SW lego anymore. Who the hell can afford getting a yearly $130 set? I would think they would be happy to spend less than $20 to at least 2 vehicles for kids to play with. >I just found out my local online seller is selling these old mini set for like $12 each, no falcon though.
>>9176453I really liked the lord of the rings sets
I don't about the rest of you, but obviously I trust the medical diagnoses of the shitbirds on /lg/.
>>9179455>he was in it for the moneySo you go to work for funzies?It was a hobby that grew into his job, but I can't even imagine how soul crushing it would be to essentially be fired but you can keep doing the work and if you please the internet lego community you can keep getting paid.The fact that he buys his sets while lego gives freebees makes me doubt he's just in it for the money, and him donating sets to charity makes me think you're just mad that other people like things that you don't like.
>>9177699Integrate it into a skyscraper. Have a scene happening in the city.>alien invasion>kaiju>robot uprising>zombies>>9179444>>9179463Your builds and photography are always so wonderful and inspiring.

>>9177543>countless amount of unopened boxesIs this not considered hoarding?
>>9178882That speeder looks cool!
>>9177931I take women back to my place and I have 5 bookshelves of vintage sets displayed in my living room. They always take an interest in it and when my current gf came over the first time, she pointed out several sets she had as a kid.As long as you have other normie hobbies and display it in such a way that a normal adult would (i.e. not crammed into a single bedroom you sleep in like a kid), people like to look at toys. Especially ones they have some sort of connection to, and most people, boys and girls, played with lego.
>look for bulk lego on Ebay>it's all "creativity packs" and "assorted bags"
>>9179792I love that truck anon.
>>9179820Thanks. It belongs to der Führer personally.I'm afraid to apply stickers to it due to my shaky spastic hands when it comes to such tasks.
>>9179381Shut the fuck up Bezos, the Expanse fucking sucked
Any post that ends with an exclamation point reads highly deranged.
>>9179856Thanks! Its what I'm going for.
>>9179780gotta look locally anon.
>>9179780>>9179879My neighbour managed to snatch up a 120l trashbag filled with old Lego pirates sets at a garagesale where some old elderly couple was cleaning out their sons old toys. He paid ~$20 for it. I was mad fucking jelly.
>>9179898yep. not going to find something like that on ebay.

He's never gonna play with or display a huge part of his sets, I wonder how much he'd get for selling 90% of his collection. Makes me glad I decided to downsize my collection and only stick to my favorite sets.
>>9179826where did you get that fig?
>given pic related as a kid>shitty Galidor set (8325), never really used it>sold it in a tub along with most of my lego in my dark age>randomly look up set on brickeconomy now out of curiosity>worth around $350 USD in used condition, way more than any other Galidor setWhat the fuck?
>>9180061>wanted galidor growing up>wasn't allowed because of a system fag purist for a father

>>9180055>>9180065Oh and also this set: https://www.joom.com/en/products/5e7060a536b54d010199e18eIt took longer for Lego to send me the prisoner figs than it did for Korea to send the other three sets. One of their factories is located some 30km from me.
>>9180065>>9180071Thanks king. Nice and cheap too.
>>9180075The quality of the print is surprisingly good considering how cheap the sets are. The legs on my figs are a bit loose, and I was afraid to crack the torso when I assembled the arms and hands (felt a bit brittle), but there's been no issues so far. The second set in my first post is definately my favourite.
>>9179282Most sellers like it when you clear out their minidoll stock and they look very comfy hanging around your builds
>>9180061It was a limited release
>>9180105no sorry that isnt comfy at all

>>9180245What instruments did Lego make?>>9180272Exactly. Im not even trying to stirr up shit. Itll happen with or without me.Btw check out my uv light. I bought it to detect cum on any mandarake figures. All figma but no cum so far.
>>9180286hmm now that's cringe!
>>9180286I can send you my Unikitties if you really want to see something in the UV light.
>>9180288 lol were you actually expecting UV cum stains
>>9180294Dont be cringe dude
>>9180293Based, I'm not nearly madlad enough to cum on any of my possessions.
>>9179552Gender dysphoria is a mental illness.
>>9180286The Assembly Square modular building set has a saxophone, guitars, and a brick-built piano. At least one of the Harry Potter sets had a flute (printed rod). Western sets had bugles. Islanders had zebra-skin drums. Some of the minifig line had guitars. This is just off the top of my head so may be inaccurate.
>>9180240>Mega Dragons chopperbasedWish they would go back to making original themes.
>>9180310Man, I loved Dragons and Pyrates. I wish I still had my old sets.
>>9180296Being cringe was a risk I willingly took when I got addicted to brick built crack.>>9180300Thanks for the answer anon. It looks like I have better luck just bricklinking some stuff. I didnt realise Lego made such a variety. Any instrument that works in a jazz fusion group is a yes for me.
>>9180319nice reddit spacing chud
>>9179369Yeah minifigfags are retarded, however the UCS gunship looks terrible. It has a big open space and they couldn't even be assed to make that space look good, all those antistud surfaces make my eyes bleed.
>>9180323Reddit spacing isn't whenever you have blank lines. Reddit spacing is when you have blank lines for every linebreak, like I'm doing now.
>>9180328shut the fuck up newfag
>>9180310Yeah dude. Mega handles licenses in a cooler way than Lego but they havent made cool ass knights in so long.>>9180323Sorry I dontTalk to redditors
>Buy sets with mini dolls>Take their hairpieces to use with minifigures>Store the bald mini dolls in a small plastic bin, only to pull them out whenever I need expendable targets for projectile launcher tests>Minifigures get to enjoy the actual setsAll mini dolls deserve to crack in Hell.
>>9180354I recognize that fucking penguin. What is that? I had that fucker as a kid, I need to know where it's from.
>>9177018Do you have a picture of this build saved elsewhere? I love collecting Halo moc pics, and would love to see it. One day I may attempt a scarab, but the legs are a huge structural concern, and your design would certainly be helpful. Did it use large technic ratchet joints, or were they stationary like the Mega construx scarab? Was it minifig scale?
I'm pissed that they are using HP's huge Scabbers mold as the standard mouse/rat in non-HP sets instead of this cutie. This better not be the first and last time we see it.
>>9176545>I have every set in this imageWas I... a spoiled child?
>>9180398CMFs are made in a completely separate factory in china and most of the unique pieces are one-time molds that are probably never going to be used in non-CMF sets
>>9180310What are those other 2 Spartans?>>9180388Sorry mate, I nabbed it long time ago when I still worked retail. They were chucking out old stock and I felt that I had to rescue these little fucking penguins. All I remember is that it came in a really generic looking blister pack that screamed "made in China"
WHY IS THE PIG SO FUCKING SMALL? ITS LITERALLY SMALLER THAN THE SHEEP! DOESNT LEGO REALIZE HOW BIG PIGS ACTUALLY ARE?
>>9180413Bacon is Denmark second biggest export after LEGO
>>9180413Nah, if the pigs were any bigger, muslims would be offended
>>9180413SOMEBODY GET THAT FUCKIN’ FURRY OUTTA THE STY, PRONTO! HE’S ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING REALLY FUCKED UP!
>>9180412Left is minimates right it kubricks
>>9180412>All I remember is that it came in a really generic looking blister pack that screamed "made in China"Damn, I seem to remember it came with ice cream or something, so it might just have been one of those generic toys companies bought wholesale.
>>9180383How could you do such cruel things
Good day fellas I'm planning on building a rebel pilot+astromech hangar shuttle out of this set and the y-wing micro fighter. Any suggestions? I have them double
>>9180413>>9180417Don't actually buy meat from Denmark though. They slaughter all their animals halal.
I just spent 150+ dollars on just parts for the first time for my first actual big MOC. Feels weird not to have instructions or a printed box that everything comes in.
LEGO masters USA S2E6 aired last night Serious tension in the Karen camp
>>9179444very nice use of the fender pieces. all of them.
>>9180448I watched one episode of that show and I’m convinced none of the contestants actually do much building and they all have a squad of obese neckbeards who do 99% of the building offscreen
>>9180434Mini dolls are undesirable, a plague upon the LEGOverse enforced by little brats who can't see the beauty in cute minifigures.
>>9180471>NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GIRLS AREN'T ALLOWED TO LIKE DIFFERENT THINGS THAN BOYS
>>9180458It reeks of reality TV, a bunch of fucking nobodies acting dramatic over building block toys. LEGO's twitter is the perfect example of how fake the hype for it seems.
>>9180476>Having fun shitposting about mini dolls and then THIS 'woke' piece of shit needs to shitpost harderFuck you, this is MY show.
>>9180448I'm suddenly really glad I never bothered to get into that show. It's always easy to forget when just seeing ads how much drama can be edited in. Honestly realty shows in general seem like a bottomless shithole that just keeps sucking everything in and turning into shit. I only ever watched one season of Big Brother after the pug was introduced and Murder in Small Town X because that was just a murder mystery with contestants. My biggest fear at this point is if in some bizzare meta circlejerk Lego starts producing sets based on the show. How long before we start seeing submitted ideas for team sets on Lego Ideas?
>>9180448Oh no !!!
>>9180442What are you building anon?
>>9180513>My biggest fear at this point is if in some bizzare meta circlejerk Lego starts producing sets based on the show.I think we already have it worse with mosaics, brick-built masks for display purposes only and a fucking LEGO Adidas shoe.
>>9180522wait did they have lego robot wars on the show? that actually sounds pretty kino
>>9180525>You will live to see brick built horrors beyond your comprehension
Does Lego still sell skinny flat baseplates?
>>9180538yeah, 32x32 and 48x48 baseplates are still freely available in storesprobably not for long tho if the rumors are true
>>9180537I mean, we already have LEGO Minecraft and LEGO Mario Fidget Spinners. I really can't comprehend how much worse it'll get.>LEGO stops selling physical bricks and just releases AR app games
>>9180541which rumors? oh god
>>9178501I once bought a birthday card with it and the lady didn't believe me after she asked if I was going to go home and build it. It was the set I bought to get out of my dark age too. Pic related. I got that and a series 2 cmf. Now I wish I'd have just said yeah. I wasn't there yet though and it felt like a weird thing to go out and buy Lego. It's no problem now, but man, I could've bought another cmf bag.
>>9180535They had a demolition derby it might have been good if the camera focusing on the action but no its jumps constantly mainly focusing on reactions. The video work is shocking on this show , the viewpoint of the camera never settles on anything constantly chopping away. every 1-2 seconds , Constant added of visual effects and OTT audio , incredibly overproduced. essentially just noise.
>>9180545well it's nothing substantial yet but they are heavily phasing out flat baseplates in actual sets and instead making standalone buildings and structures on regular plates
>>9180480Does the US show play up the drama? The australian one feels like it goes out of its way to avoid any drama beyond "I don't know if we'll finish on time", "we don't have an idea yet" or "something broke"
>>9180523You'll see! I'll post it here when it's finished.
>>9180437Why not just get the new imperial marauder?
>>9180617Didnt think Id see Lego make a mortar
>>9180617It's just funny to me that it's a literal grey box.
>>9180617I can't take the piss trooper seriouslyNew helmet doesn't help>tfw never going back
>>9180611Something you'll never be.
Wont Bricks & Pieces hurt Lego in the long run? Like one of the main appeal of sets which gets people to buy them as a whole are the few exclusive or rare elements they provide. Now why bother buying entire sets when you can just get the individual pieces much cheaper?
>>9180636No no, you see...It's a LASER mortar. Those are child-friendly, just ask G.I. Joe!
>>9180690It's likely less people take advantage of b&p than you think
>>9180690I don't know about you, but my experiences with B&P consist out of "They don't have the parts I want in stock or in the right colors".
Remember when Lego City had soul?Discuss
>>9180706This is an impressive set but I wouldn't call it soulful"soul" and "good" aren't interchangeable
>>9180706It's probably autism but I really don't like these sets where things are clearly supposed to be on different levels, but they're right next to each other. It basically only happens with the deepsea stuff but it bothers me.
>>9180706>Modern shark facesNope.
>>9180701Same here. When is the sheep back in stock, Lego?
Getting back into LEGO made me realise I need to find a better place to live than this shit apartment. Wish me luck bros, the housing market sucks.
>>9180801I hate living in a fucking country that gives apartments to immigrants who cheat the system and give houses to boomers.
>>9180801>Wish me luck bros, the housing market sucks.Much luck is wished for you anon. Its a seller's market. The problem is that even though I think there will be a slight correction sometime soon, the trend is upward, upward, upward. The construction industry is currently going through a major labor shortage and work overflow. Especially in residential. The only things being built regularly and without excessive red tape are commercial and shit apartments. Material costs are also going through the roof. The housing shortage is not going away soon.
>>9180712Just because its not from your childhood doesn't mean it can't be soulful. Soul and nostalgia are not interchangeable
What are some cool infraestructure that is yet to show up in Lego sets? I think an oil platform would make for a really cool big set. Of course its never gonna happen since fossil fuels are the devil nevermind that they are the reason Lego can be produced
>>9180931If they'd make an oil platform, you'd just have to prepare for the one million Mother Base MOCs and I'm not sure I'm ready for that.Either way, I want a power plant.
>>9180936A power plant that comes with working streetlights you can place in your city. I'd buy it.
>>9180931lego has already made an oil rig set
>>9180939Kiddy loicensed shit dont count. They even made it evil
>>9180950it has still shown up in a lego set
>>9177543Since when do we bully AFOLs? Do you know where you are? You sure you arent all just jealous of all his Lego?
>>9180706This is nice and all but EXPENSIVE for what it is. Also, is there a reason why they only do realistic underwater stuff anymore? Aside from the Ninjago summer wave of course.
>>9180965Because now everything that is slightly fantasy is cannibalized into Ninjago which leaves bland City
>>9180849Ha ha we must live in the same country then.>>9180857Ha ha I'm fucked.
>not building a Lego playshed in your backyard
>>9180994>Owning a backyardHOO WEE LOOK AT MR. RICH OVER HERE WITH HIS FANCY BACKYARD.
>>9180994Fuck you Mr. Millionaire, we cant all have yards like you trust fund brats.
If you're going to lewd a bitch, here's one that deserves a thorough forced breeding session.
>>9180994I did but I use mainly for my lawn mower and irrigation stuff. Some similar items. It would be a bad place to store lego because it gets dirty easily and it would be uncomfortable to be in for most of the year because there is neither insulation nor temperature control.
>>9181009w h o
>>9181012Plus, leaving out your valuable collection out in the open so some rioting poorfag can wreck or steal it sounds like a stupid plan.
Is there a term for the set that breaks your dark age? If not there should be one. I suggest lightbringer, sounds kinda gay though.Pic rel was my lightbringer
>>9181022dark age sounds gay too so I think your term is fitting enough
>>9181018Lady Bone Demon, a Monkie Kid villain who's a straight up cunt. The minifig is her 'true' form, but she possesses a little girl throughout the cartoon season.
>>9181022This was mine, I don't regret a thing. Actually I do regret getting rid of all the TMNT stuff I had, I almost had all the whole line.
>>9181019Well I have a lock on my shed. I don't want anyone stealing my stuff. I advise anyone with a shed to have a lock. Its a nice shed for storing appropriate items. Just not large enough or comfortable enough to want to spend time in. Even in the boonies some weirdo might wander into your yard and want to sleep in your shed or something. Just shill out the money for a lock.
>>9181026>Lady Bone Demonnice
>>9181022>lightbringerI didn't know getting back into LEGO involved mental regression as well. Go back to your D&D, please.
>>9181026Oh, damn, she's from MK? Probably comes with an over-priced mech then, dammit.I hate that Mr Tang comes in all of one (1) set, but Mei is in almost all of them.[toyler]Also is there a minifig version of that form?[/toyler]
>>9181022DON'T LOOK AT ME. DON'T LOOK AT ME!
>>9181009do not disrespect my waifu like this
>>9181046No kid-form for Boner Demon, I'm afraid. And yes, that minifig is only available in the White Bone Demon Mech which is $120.
>>9181022pic related was mine, I don't like it that much anymore. I plan on selling it in a few weeks/months.
>>9181055Your waifu is a biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitch.
>>9181058Fuuuuuuck. On both counts.Guess I'll just wait and see if she shows up in a cheaper (or better) set. Unless MK only has one more wave in it, which I hope not cause I like it.
>>9181051I actually like the Freinds apartment set up that comes with Janice. Not enough to buy it of course. But I like the build.
>>9181058Is this the CIA's final form?
>>9181063noob, you can order her from bnp for like 5 dollars
>>9181058>>9181063All the previous minifigs in the series have been on Parts and Pieces so she will likely be there too
>>9181069>>9181070Oh. Well fuck me then.
>>9181063Season 2 of the cartoon ended in such a vague "To be continued" manner that it seemed like the cartoon ends there or is waiting to be picked up for another season.But consider that they also added Pigsy's Noodle Tank, which seems to hint at an upcoming episode involving a feud between Pigsy's and the Panda store.
>>9181058>that minifig is only available in the setI got it for cheap from B@P as other MK parts
Are any of your irl friends also into Lego?
>>9181069>>9181070>>9181077Knowing my luck they're unavailable there for me because of some godforsaken reason.
>>9181078Iron Fan and Red Son are just perfect wincest material.
>>9180617who's the milk moustache guy
>>9181081>Having IRL friends after 2020
>>9181089Apollo Creed from the Rocky movies
>>9181086No one cares about your fetishes.
>>9181094Thanks for the (You), it gets me off.
>>9181081My irl best friend is great at building (small somewhat fragile robots mainly) but doesn't buy new sets, just builds with his collection from when he was a kid, and my pieces when he visits
>>9181081>having friendsDo normies really?Gtfo of my 4chan
>>9181081None of my friends are into it currently. One of my not so close not really friends bought some Star Wars heug dust collectors a few years back but he just tucked it away in storage.
>>9180905I agree with youBut soul comes from care, creativity, and limitation, and in most cases modern lego designers don't face limitations that prompt soulful creations, however caring and creative they are.
>>9181085What country are you in? Its available for me.
>>9181127>Soul comes from limitationNta but this is a crock of shit
>>9181055Plat is not longer around to lewd the Bone Demon.
>>9181148it comes from genuine care inspiring creative overcoming or attempt to overcome a given limitation of the medium
>>9181165this is why 3 in 1 is pretty much the only soulful theme because it is constrained by the parts needing to go into 3 different models
>>9181149Good riddance lol
Wait, that's minifig hair right? Can you use minifig hair with the dolls?
>>9181126Quite literally same. However I did recently give my brother a cowboy and bandit from the western line and he is now looking at getting some vintage lego.
>>9181181yes and vice versa
These threads are embarrassing.
>>9181218little bitdo you like lego
Havent played with Lego since I was a kid so I'm still unfamiliar about online pricings of used parts. Would around 400€ be enough to get a massive amount of pieces that meet the general needs of most medium sized mocs? Im not interested in any minifigure whatsoever but besides wanting standard versatile building parts in many colors I would still be interested in certain more specialized pieces like plants, rocks, crystals, chests, joints...I just wanted having really solid all purpose stock so that I'm not constantly annoyed because I dont have the pieces I needed and being forced to make small orders
>>9181081I think I managed to get my best friend back into Lego. He doesn't have much space, so he's sent me some of them to me or sold them online. I got my wife into them since she loves Harry Potter.
>>9181231imo the best way to start a collection is just to order like a dozen sets that are currently on the market. If you just order parts you probably don't know what you need, sets will have a little of everything
>>9181231Kinda depends. Sometimes you can find parents selling their now grown children's collections for cheap. Typically those type of sales are word of mouth or local listings on whatever marketplace you use. You could purchase an okay bulk collection for that amount on ebay likely. If you want new? You can wait for a summer clearance sale. And buy as many creator or city sets as you can for cheap. Alternatively you can buy some licenseshit for parts and then resell the figures.
>>9181264>I got my wife into them since she loves Harry Potter.I’m sorry for your loss
>>9181231just order from chinks on Ali>Would around 400€ be enough to get a massive amount of pieces BAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH hahahahaahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah
>>9181318i don't believe in psychiatric medication but you should definitely start taking it
>>9181326Just compare the quality and prices of Lego sets now and back in 2010, look me in the eyes and tell me the man in the wall isn't real
>>9181316Cope.My fiancé isn’t a total pleb and likes LOTR
>>9181334Quality is better now than in 2010, especially the browns
>>9181318>just order from chinks on Alikys
Pesky mongoose is no more
Whats your building setup like? Do you do it sitting down on your desk? Do put everything on the floor or?..
>>9181318Chinkshit, should you use it, should be used to pad or enhance -in your mind- your lego collection. If chinkshit is the majority or entirety of your collection there is another thread for you found here >>9018568
>>9181400I sit down at my desk but my parts tubs end up fucking everywhere and I'm always turning around in my chair to dig through one
>>9178469If you mean "new" sets I've bought 60266. I haven't built it yet but it seems like it's going to be fun. As far as "old" sets go I've gotten a huge bulk of old Classic Space stuff (not fully built), Spyrius stuff, Blacktron 2 stuff, M:Tron stuff and oddly enough, UFO and RoboForce.Oh, and I got the 31115 Space Mining Robot that I converted to this.
>>9179369While I don't agree with the necessity of "rare" minifigures I would like to point out that one of the main reasons for Lego's success over the years was the correct implementation of "minifigures" into their toy system. Many competitors have tried and failed to do this, and the minifigure itself has carried Lego to great heights of success as it adds immense value to every set with its ability to be used for play. Here's a "minifigure" that didn't quite make it, a vestige from an age when "Space" wasn't entirely Lego's.
Whats the education/work background of the official Lego designers? Some kind of engineering? Architecture? Art?
We fuckin did it, anons. In all my years of picking through classic castle and space lots, I've never once found the black forest guy complete with his plume. This was basically my white wale to find in the wild. The haul is looking excellent.
>>9181494All of these in the current year.
>>9181502Nicely done anon. And blessed taste. One day I hope to be so lucky.
>>9181026But she's so cute
>>9181073If there's a new season I wonder when will it air, either late this year or the next one.
Will Lego ever release another original theme that isn't accompanied by a cartoon TV show advertisement?
>>9181544MaybeBut only if it has a mobile game tie-in instead
>>9181544nope and they don't have to>ninjago is anything fantasy-related>city is semi-realistic kiddie playsets>friends is girly shit>creator expert is afol shit>creator 3in1 for everything else
>>9181554Reminder Hidden Side was the final theme with a semblance of soul Lego Will ever do
>>9181572And it'll all your fault it was canned. I bought every single set in the line.
What does everyone think about Creator Assembly Square? Its really caught my eye.
>>9181575It's cool, but if I got it, I'd gut most of the inside and replace it with my own stuff. It's kind of... Uninspired, aside from the bakery and cafe.
>>9181572Hidden shit was soulless
>>9181574>I bought every single set in the line.Any mocs?
>>9181585Not really aside from a bigger graveyard I'm working on with that set as a base. I do wanna make some kind of west coast fishing town with most of the sets eventually.
>>9181584No it was based and spookypilled
>>9181572Hidden Side? More like Hidden Dilation Guide
>>9181382>>9181424LEGO is now chinkshit itself, though.
>>9181572Hidden Side <3
>>9178469My GF is a star wars fag and has a shrine w/ different toys and models. I set some cash aside to get her the UCS LAAT but it sucked so I got the cantina. I also got Luke's speeder with the reward points. Not really a toy guy otherwise.
>>9179369tfw buying this set JUST for resale since the first batch is all mis-printed with the imperial logo on the box instead of the republic logo which they changed already so once the first batch is gone it's done. Yep gonna make some nerd pay a premium for it BNIB in a few years.
oh man someone was selling the mega core magnetizer for around $150 locally but when i refreshed the page a few minutes later it was already sold
>>9181660I bought the Hulk vs. Red Hulk set on clearance specifically to get the six large purple wheels to use in a pimped-out version of the MCM. Haven't gotten around to it yet.
>>9181638Your GF's a fag?
>>9178548And what do you think is going to realistically happen?There's no treatment for this regardless and it's definitely not going away.
>>9181668she-hulk is a top tier waifu
>>9181697nta but pimozide seems to work
>>9181668Those wheels are actually smaller than the huge ones, the big bois only came in light greys / black / orange, and the orange doesn't look particularly good despite my best efforts.Still probably possible to do something with the purple though, like a midi version.
>>9181697how about we try telling them 'no, you are not a woman and chopping off your dick isn't the solution'?
>>9181698Yes, but I really wish they didn't have the green printing on the torso>>9181701Oh, I didn't realize that. I guess I always assumed they were the same size as the other m-tron big wheels. Now I'll have to add the MCM to my whale list.
>>9181705Wow, no one has ever thought of that before.I almost wonder how this even became a problem in the first place.If you're worried about someone doing something they regret, that's one thing but the numbers for people that do are incredibly low.https://journals.lww.com/prsgo/fulltext/2021/03000/regret_after_gender_affirmation_surgery__a.22.aspx#:~:text=A%20total%20of%2027%20studies,procedures%20and%2067%25%20transfemenine%20procedures.
>>9181707I once saw someone on ebay selling the mega core magnetizer with the medium size wheels too, was a really funny photo, hope the buyer knew it wasn't right. Mid scale can still be fun too, I'm a sucker for any rover with 6 wheels. The blacktron 2 spectral starglider has the same steering and added suspension, but uses the smaller wheels like the dark purple.Thinking of selling one of my mega cores. None are reasonably priced in the USA it seems. Bet I could get $300 these days.
>>9181697Antipsychotics and therapy
For the love of God stop derailing this thread with trans discussion. Its starting to make me want to leave this place for good. I kist wanna talk about Lego
>>9181791tourists who discovered this site throught a certain board which gained popularity in mainstream social media don't seem to understand that other boards are for discussing specific topics and not whatever social issue they are currently outraged aboutthe big boards have been unusable for good 2-3 years now, it looks like they are starting to discover the smaller hobby boards as well
>>9181766Absolute quality build. Is that your MOC? I love it man. The Blacktron 2 Spectral Starglider is a beast of a set and I absolutely love it as well. I have one built and one MISB.
>>9181081My friend is into bonkles
>>9178851The helmet wasn't molded yet by the time the photos were needed for the book. The helmet was just spray painted to match the rest of it.
>>9181849>>9181859>tilescringe, soulless, etc
What does/lg/ think of my MOC?
>>9181832This is my little build, yeah. I designed it to fold up so it can fit into a ~12x16 area to drive into a bigger carrier. I had the starglider as a kid and I think it's one of the more underrated classic era space sets. Suspension is very comfy on it. Probably the best design of blacktron 2.I always wanted the magnetizer as a kid so I overcompensated as an adult and own one with the box, a few in parts, and some mocs based around it. I don't have anything NISB anymore but I do highly value the boxes I have like the magnetizer, blacktron 1 base, etc.All I do is try to build things that make me feel nostalgic or could be mistaken as a set from X theme by a layperson. I love the soulbuilds. Castle / Aquanaut / Space is my bread and butter, with large portions of baseplates, panels, and burps.
Lego is a massive waste of time and monkey
>>9181701Orange might work if you went full Mars Mission with the design, you'd have to figure out a way to do the canopy though.
>>9181921Good thing i have a surplus of both
>>9181089Al Dillon from Predator
>>9181921Yes but at least it’s not heroin
>>9181921>lego is a massive waste of time and monkey >monkey Kys
>>9181921>tfw traded my last few monkeys for another classic space setI need to kick this habit.
>>9181906>had the starglider as a kid and I think it's one of the more underrated classic era space sets.I hear you, it truly is a wonderful set. Has suspension, has an integrated ship, is a nice large rover with steering, really hits a lot of high points. I don't have the box for the Blacktron 1 base but do have boxed Futuron and Unitron Monorails. I hope to build the Unitron one soon and post it here for you guys. >All I do is try to build things that make me feel nostalgic or could be mistaken as a set from X theme by a layperson.Are you me? I try to do the exact same, working within a theme to build things that could have been.
>>9181990rotate those sticks so they go in minifig hands
>>9181921Is it a waste if it's monkey we enjoy wasting?
>>9181990>working within a theme to build things that could have been.Yes, exactly this, that is what I go for. I know I've posted this MOC a few times but I feel like it's one of my better examples of trying to use relatively era-correct parts to stay within the theme.I hope to make some more stuff to post soon but the bricklink store has been keeping me busy, y'all keep buying stuff!
>>9181889I love it anon. What are those Spaniards up to in the new world?
>>9181906>>9181990>>9182045I love all these builds and saved all of them, great work anons. Heres to many mocs in the upcoming thread
>>9181953I've been happy with my one monkey all these years but after seeing your image I have a strong urge to army build.
>>9181945Yooh sunnuvuh beehtch
>>9181473nice conversion anonis there no better part to use for fingertips?
>>9181953>>9182100Monkies are great, I highly recommend buying as many as you can get.
>>9182125I wonder whatever happened to the Monkie Kween
>>9181852>The helmet wasn't molded yet by the time the photos were needed for the book. The helmet was just spray painted to match the rest of it.Seems like they would just render it.If anyone has an orange spaceman, please answer

Can someone tell me where this lego deadpan face comes from?
>>9182247I took one of these heads and removed the eyebrows and mustache
>>9182254Thanks, I guess I am going to have to order two of those heads now, one for the deadpan face and one for my purist Hitler
>>9182269It's a good face
>>9182254I always figured it was from Citizen Brick
>>9182254Great tip. Whats the best way to accurately remove the print? I've heard eraser or brasso but I've never really done it.
>>9182273I'm not a fan of their print quality (although in recent years I'm not a fan of Lego's print quality either).Heads from 30 years ago are usually good.>>9182278>Great tip. Whats the best way to accurately remove the print? I've heard eraser or brasso but I've never really done it.I made a how-to guide and posted it on /lego/:https://anon.cafe/lego/res/25.html#598
>>9182283interesting, I have a couple of those CB heads and they're very good. Like Lego at their best.
>>9182286I saw some close-up pictures that turned me off but that was when they were first getting started. Maybe their methods have improved since then. I'll stop blowing them off when I see something interesting. Although from what I understand most of their really interesting prints sell out within a few minutes of being available.
Imagine hanging out with Niels in his workshop while he carves a giant lego ghost shroud out of wood
Do any other companies make bootleg raised baseplates? Its criminal how expense they are.
>>9182100>>9182145>>9182244Love me my monkies
>>9181231Sometimes it's nice to work within your limitations. I think the best stuff I make is when I don't have an idea ahead of time and haven't hand-picked what I had in my inventory. I'd say get like whatever amount of money you're comfortable paying worth of sets on the market right now, see which ones look like they have the most interesting part selections, and then just go from there and see what you can make. Even themes you don't think you give a shit about can have cool parts.
>>9182239I have the orange one, it's the same as every other spaceman from Benis Space Squad
>>9178051>Is something wrong? Patbrick, you're sweating.
>>9181774How often do you think that works in this case?
>>9177799Looks too much like a swimsuit now imo
>>9181340My wife likes both. It's actually possible to like more than one franchise.
>>9181849Needs a good retrobrite
>>9182911>Looks too much like a swimsuit now imoThis. With the red arms and hands, it looks like a cheesecake spacesuit, but bare arms loses the look.
>>9182911Yeah. I might try meeting in the middle and seeing how short sleeves look. I also wanna add a belt
