I combined two of the Vidiyo punk pirate ships into one proper one
Captain in her cabin poring over which album cover will lead them to the legendary treasure
>>9770484>>9770486Now thisThis is kino
>>9770486NOOOO WOMEN CAN'T BE CAPTAINSAAAAAAAAA I'M GOING INSANE
>>9770554Well, I ain't complaining.A steady supply of brickbuilt dragons is always welcome.
Buyer's remorse is kicking in
>>9770657What did you impulse buy, anon??
>>9770664I found out how awful those bootleg dragon plumes look in person.
New thread. First for Star Wars is Kool.>>9770484Sick.>>9770495Der Koomher>>9770683Looks ok.
>>9770484I just built the pirate ship on Wednesday and was thinking I’d like to get a second one to expand it. This is fantastic
>>9770683Just a little too glossy. Not sure if you want to spend more money on it, but you could buy a matte varnish in a can and I’m sure it would look a lot more like the real thing
>>9770713>Just a little too glossy.And the giant mold lines.
>>9770529Anne Bonny and few others
>>9770722Anon I was being sarcastic and mocking the incels getting butthurt over the female vikings a few threads back.
>>9770726Ah ok. Well I'm not aware of vikings but Spartan women or Egyptian women had equal rights so maybe the same applies to vikings, correct me if I’m wrong. Anyway women in piracy also had some power. They were just rare cases.
>>9770486Damn, didn’t realize the pirate captain minifig was a waifu, now I gotta get one of these, also sweet ass pirate ship anon
>>9770721Just use a hobby knife to trim down the line
>>9770740It also looks like it has been through a rock tumbler with how rounded the details are.
>>9770731Historically there probably weren’t very many Dane warrior women. But their greater mythos loved Valkyries. It’s perfectly appropriate to have them in sets. Especially romanticized Viking sets with mythical creatures. What I’m disappointed about is them going back to old horn helmets. I like horny and non historical Vikings but I was really hoping to get more of those helmets in the style of that cmf Viking a couple years back
>>9770726Women?? Real??? Women are not real!! AHHH IM GOING INSANE
>>9770801I watched eggers new northman movie and he was right about how white people romanticize vikings way too much like a homosexual orgasm
do you wear your love of lego on your sleeve?
>>9770826Haven’t seen it. But I’m not really in that camp. I really don’t think it’s a big deal to enjoy Vikings. I’m not super into them but its a fun subject. It’s a bit overdone but this shit happens all the time. It just skyrocketed in popularity in the last 10 years or so because it’s a big budget media fad. More due to vidya than movies. Before that, zombies were all the rage. Personally I’m hoping for a pirate fad. But I won’t hold my breath as I think nuPirates of the Caribbean is going to be a pile of shit. And then studio executives will take a poorly made movie as evidence of a genre as a whole because they are retarded trend chasers.
>>9769664Lego has dropped in quality so hard the above average quality of Third Party and Reproductions look and feel better in comparisons now.AliExpress is blowing up too with this in people basically remaking others MOC's and selling themsome of the MOC sets on Ali are fucking stellar
>>9770874A24 makes kino of the highest order, Eggers is a visionary and prophet on why we should stop kneeling to mythos and based our beliefs on truths.
>>9770839I feel like owning Lego is autistic enough. Bringing into other aspects of my life like in my clothing seems overboard.
>>9770889As Just2Good put it, nothing can stop the swagger one brings when repping your hobbies with apparel.
Vinland Saga was better.
>>9770699First mate Baitshark had a lil too much rum and is slowly staggering off the stern while Helmsman Cthalamari keeps course obliviously
Best current set for olive green pieces?
DuckBricks once again unbeaten
>>9771019I'm sorry. My eyes apparently omitted "olive" when I read your question.
>>9771039>Inbred monke Lollmao even
>>9770888Two different approaches mate. I like myths and romanticization. Though I’d be significantly more interested in a facsimile of ancient myths or legends than Hollywood’s sterilized misinterpretation of ancient myths or lack of understanding of history.
>>9770888>REEEEEE stop enjoying what I don't enjoyOf course a contrarian would view such ramblings as gospel.
>>9770889This, apparel and kitchenware are the two things I wouldn't try to mix with my hobbies.
>>9771094of course a biotard would worship bioshit like its high art
>>9771100>implyingGrasping at straws, are we??
>>9771016Very nice anon. Nice poop deck
>>9771039YouTubers should be forced to buy their own sets
>>9770454do bioniggers really get triggered by the tahu build in that set? I like Bionicle myself and I think it's pretty funny.
>>9771121biotards embrace the epic memes as a cope because g3 will never happen and endleslly ooze over lgbt twitch streamers like ella hollywood rubbing his dick all over a tahu
>>9771121Some anons over at /biog/ did, the rest had fun with it, which exacerbated the malding.
>>9771121Oh yeah, and also people like >>9771125 getting mad that bonklefags didn't commit a mass suicide over it.
>>9771134biotards sure endlessly cry about bionicle still dead. hows that fan game? did the creator get cancelled? did megatar drop the video yet?
>>9771039Is that the monkie kid?
>>9771140Show me any post itt crying about bonkles that isn't from malding tards like you being irrationally angry and bringing up bonkles on your own all the time.
>>9771146show me where g3 gets released kek
As a big Adventure fag I find 90Year Anniversary Sphinx set pretty cute. I like how hieroglyphic stella says LEGO backwards. This is following Adventure trend where each stella adressed each gd shown on each piece of map.
>>9771147>proves my point
>>9771153>LEGO backwardsAnon, you are wrong, this is deep lore about ancient Egyptians somehow meeting Ogel.
>>9771156What if Ogel was also looking for ancient Egyptian artefacts? Wasn't ruby supposed to give some powers? Or was it cursed?
>>9771156>>9771161Ogel = Barron.They both have hooks, both have something with eye. My bet is Barron found the stone and placed it in his eyesocket. This kept him alive but Hothep's curse made him go insane. He outlived everytone else and wanted to take over the world. Ogel is 130 years old Barron at the moment Alpha Team meets him.
>>9771016You have to go back.
Heads up to my fellow licensefags with Costco memberships: Boba Feat’s throne room is $65. They start the listing at $85 for whatever reason and it’s $20 off.
>>9771175And further proof of Adventurers-Ogel connections. Ogel base uses same plate as Sphinx. It's quite possible he either destroyed sphinx and built own base or modeled his base to resemble Sphinx and this is the 1st major location all adventurers meet all baddies.
>>9771175That still doesn't explain how he got to the past so that the ancient Egyptians would make written records about him, not to mention on a stella that they used to write names of their gods on.
>>9771189>implying this isnt time machine Egyptians worshipped Ogel.
>>9771189I see only 2 sensible ways. 1) Egyptians predicted Ogel just like Planet X2) Ogel named himself after whatever Egyptian stella says
>>9770731>Spartan women or Egyptian women had equal rightlol LMAOYou would not find a Spartan Woman in a Spartan Phalanx much like you wouldn't have a female viking aboard a raiding longboat. Women are a liability in battle. Lego is fictional, but don't be a fucking idiot.
>See this https://youtu.be/r2jHCU1OkjQ>realize I lack the skill and imagination to come up with cool shit like this>get depressedHow are you doing it anon? Most of the time I get an idea but then it becomes too ambitios and I'll scrap it down the line. Picrel is the only MOC I ever done but can't even call it that as I basically just copied one of Bevins towers.
My Lego Shop order showed upI got the "brick with wings"Really fun build and I actually really like it
when's the new sanctum getting revealed?
>>9771177what were you doing on reddit anon? maybe you should go back too
What vidya properties would you like to see as klocki sets?
>>9771283god I hate horizon
>>9771287I know its pretty much a circle jerk round here but why?I get Alloys antisocial unlikable bitch but thats the point. The asthetics and lore itself is pretty great
>>9771301ugly muddy aesthetics, terrible robot designs, bland ubisoft tower gameplay and lore thats been done a thousand times beforeDo better.
>>9771283I'd just like to see some figure-scale Mario sets.
>lore itself is pretty great
>>9771306buy the knex
>order first thing Sunday morning around 7 to make sure I get all three adding for may 4th>still showing “in warehouse”
is it just me or do most canadians set good prices on bricklink?
>>9771396probably setting prices that seem high to them in CAD but when you convert it to USD it's way lower than normal.
>>9771223Try copying actual architecture. It gives you something to reference, but is still creative as you translate it to LEGO.
>>9771396Haven't shopped much outside of Canada so I couldn't say. Generally I find that if a store seems to be a straight-up reseller (most/all their inventory are "new" parts/sets/figs) they tend to have higher prices on average, not fond of using those. There's one store I won't name but any Canadian user of BL will likely recognize for having ridiculously high prices on everything - no clue who buys from them (they have close to 600 orders). That one's an outlier though, feel like I've seen a couple similar ones in the US too.>yfw as just one example a used black 1x1 brick is priced at almost a dollar CADBut they offer free shipping anywhere, I gue...>$80USD minimum buy>mfw
>>9771378I’m in the same boat anon.
>>9771179Ahhhhh going to this general is dangerous. The last thread got me to buy the ATST on Amazon and now I'm planning a costco trip ree
>>9771459I’d check online or call the store to verify the price in your location.
>>9771179Buy me one.
>>9771221Proof to back any of that up? Or just>Lol I watched it in a YouTube video who cites a paragraph from a 18th century racist writer who was obsessed with homosexuality>>9771278Not him but>Not going to reddit to scout Lego dealsI don't post there or have an account but if some reddit autist spots a deal then there's no harm done. Also to the anon, yes, you need to go back.>>9771287Based. Shit game rushed to try and compete with Breath of the Wild.>>9771378>Mfw ordered with the hour>Everything is shipped except Most Eisley >>9771470Yeah I don't know why people are afraid of calling a store. That's how I got my Nintendo Switch in 2017.
>>9771539Hey mutltiquote reply reddit faggot, you have to go back
>>9771543slt is here to stay
>>9770839I used to wear shirts with prints of this or that (mostly just super hero logos or band shirts), but then I got a job where I was dealing with so many strangers that I got socially drained from all the superficial small talk to the point that I got that same feeling of exhaustion just running errands on my time off while wearing those kinds of shirts. Now I just wear clothes without any kind of pop culture imagery and people leave me alone most of the time.
>>9771564Good choice. Almost all my shirts are one color with no logo. The exception is a two tone shirt with no logo
>>9771539>proof to back that upNot him but there isn’t any documented case of a woman in a Spartan phalanx, to my knowledge. If you can find proof of it occurring, I’d love to see it.
>18th century racist writerdidn't take slt as a woketard
>>9771187Ogel is the name of the false god in the Brickroklockicon
How often do you mooch parts from the replacement part service?
>>9771626Never; I just order multiples of "rare" molded animals from them
Somebody make a choice for me - Mos Eisley Cantina or Assembly Square? Just getting back into lego again, really want some nice Star Wars minifigures but the build itself looks kinda ugly.
>>9771705Assembly Square is gonna retire first, so I'd go for that
>>9771543I'm an oldfag (c. 2005), don't have a reddit account. Sneed and Seethe.>>9771549>>9771612WHO THE FUCK IS SLT. Also lmao>>9771705Mos Eisley. Build it, swoosh it, then break it down and make your own. There's enough pieces to make a little neighborhood.
>>9771626Never. You can buy any part they're able to provide and if they deem your replacement complaints as excessive, they'll investigate and potentially blacklist you as a customer. Which means you'll be unable to use VIP or lego.com forever.Lego has an excellent warranty and customer service program on the basis of good faith. Most toy companies tell you to deal with the retailers for warranty within their return windows (2 weeks after purchase) or to kick dirt. Lego warranties stuff that is decades old, which is pretty amazing.
>>9771742>You can buy any part they're able to provideNot licensed figure parts.
>>9771742I mentioned to Mega Bloks that one of my ninja turtles metal shells came scratched and they shipped me a replacement one. Never had a missing piece from a Lego set but I have had one piece be slightly molded wrong in a $350 set. Never bothered to contact them because the part still fits fine.
>>9771705Mos Eisley is the more interesting set imo. I like that the set opens up into one gigantic interior room instead of a bunch of smaller, separate rooms. There are very few playset style sets that sort of layout. It's also one of the only 18+ sets that's open ended and has the ability to be modified and added on in a fulfilling and easy way.I only collect vintage stuff, but pulled the trigger on it during the may 4th promo. I would wait until double VIP points to order it now since it's out of stock.
It's Mother's Day here, and because it's partially my mother's fault that I got back into LEGO instead of adopting a healthier and more fulfilling hobby as an adult I think it's only fitting I get her a Botanical set and try to get her into the crippling habit as well. Payback time.
>>9771754sounds gay, do you not know what she would like?
>>9771754Was honestly thinking of pranking my mom with a botanical set too.
modded the new republic fighter tank
>>9771763Now it's almost as good as the previous rendition, well done
>>9771539> Proof to back any of that up?Not him, but do (You) have any proof to back hour assertions up? Genuinely asking because I have never read about any proof of women being part of Spartan armies or Viking raiders except for redditors’ “well, but it could have happened!”
>>9771755Either you grew up without a mother or you had one with psychological issues. I'm just saying, I don't think you understand mothers. I'll have to fuck yours just so she at least gets something today.
>Oh boy, here I go evicting minidolls again
>>9771765Thanks anon, I tried to reverse engineer Solid Brix Studios' mod since he didn't make a tutorial & it turned out pretty nice, the set isnt too bad but the mod definitely makes it better
>>9771774Why is someone in a wheelchair bowling? Don't you need momentum to be able to roll the ball well?1/10, at least the trans neon green parts make up for this dogshit virtue signaling
>>9771776funny bait or incel that hasn't been bowling in the last 2 decadesthey have bumpers and ramps to roll the ball down so anyone can bowl
>>9771779Use a stuntz ramp to send the wheelchair down the bowling alley
>>9771783Okay that ramp is just blatant cheating
>>9770529Found the troon
>>9771768Not any of the previous anons but I will point out that the ancient Greek playwright Aristophanes wrote a comedy called Lysistrata where women tired of the ongoing Peloponnesian War decide to force the men to come to terms by denying them sex. From this we can infer that:>women in ancient Greece didn't participate in warfare>women in ancient Greece were basically a set of holesAnd that's just one example. We can go over how much the shield and armor of a typical hoplite would be carrying into battle weighed, how female participation in conflict was so unheard of that attention is drawn to a rare instance of it during the battle of Salamis (where a woman commander in Xerxes' fleet gets tired of being wrekt by the Greeks and sinks one of her own ships to gtfo of there), how phalanx cohesion depended on everyone being of roughly comparable strength and build to be effective...Tl;dr women warriors is and always has been a Hollywood meme (or the ancient world's equivalent of Hollywood)
>>9770726I already forgot about that>Rentfree Threads-longYou seem healthy
>>9770824Kek sametrooning troon
>>9771785So's getting into a fist fight with crippled people but that's not stopping me.
>>9771774>>9771783>More "disabled people are people tooI hope we see MOC's adding like guns and shit to the Wheelchair
>>9771783>Phone not included and not neededWhy Put it there in the First place?
>>9771808>line after line with phone app gimmicks>this line isn't one but they still want the "my phone is my life" crowd>legalese for "we told you so, can't sue us">retarded fanbaseCovering all their bases
>>9771808The movie theater had the gimmick where your phone'd look like the movie screen. I guess this would be a giant screen for showing dance videos and shit? Reminds me of the place in FNAF Security Breach.
>>9771808Desperation to tap into the phone market
>>9771539>Shit game rushed to try and compete with Breath of the Wild.Can you control other animals to mount or distract other animals?How many times can you use your sword?How do you stealth?If I want to set traps for moblins, how do i do that?
>>9771774Isn't it strange how America has an obesity epidemic to the point that people are literally immobile from it but we don't get any fat minidolls/figs? But we get leg cripples
>>9771774Maybe if the dumb bitch stopped putting a bowling ball half the height of a human body on her legs thet would still be working
>>9771842In the Friends universe they've managed to wipe out obesity, because they're based and know fat people shouldn't exist.
>>9771301I don't hate Horizon but Sony are fucking assholes to Gravity Rush and the thought we could have had Gravity Rush Lego in another timeline hurts
>>9771842Part of it is they don't have to do anything to make a cripple other than give em a wheelchair or crutches and maybe appropriate printing. A fat fig would require a new mold or "fatsuit" piece that would've been handy with figs such as fat Bib Fortuna - either someone hasn't thought of that yet or they realize fat minifigs would be memed to death from all sides.>ngl I'd like to see it happen just for the drama
>>9771842>>9771853We'll finally be able to have a discord mod minifig
>>9771283Kingdom Hearts to go with all the Disney (and Star Wars if that was really Endor.) Final Fantasy but especially the old ones or FF9 seems like a good fit for Lego. Im surprised they don't do more weeb shit I think Voltron waa the only weeb licenced thing they ever did
All these cripples make me want an Extreme Ghostbusters set
>>9771306Minifigfags need to hang themselves.
How did we end up in a timeline where ninjago is now more expensive than star wars. Has ninjago finally been milked for all it can and now lego is seeing how much they can charge for the same concept for the 14th time?
>>9771783>We will never get any more Midway Arcade games because Warner Bros is incompetent and Lego thinks arcade games are Le Vaporwave Album Cover>>9771790>Women warriors have always been a Hollywood meme>But the Hollywood of Greece was 100% real, just real the Illiad and OdysseyLol. Niggas really be looking at comic books on clay vases and think that shit is real.
>>9771841Yes, with food, you can mount literally any mountable animal.You can use your sword as much as you want until it break (pro tip, the game world is littered with swords and the master sword regenerates after braking)You have a noise meter in game, you can walk slowly or crouch to stealth, there's also a suit for stealth.Literally with the abilities given to you like bombs and setting bait.tl;dr: horizon is fucking embarrassing and Sony hasn't been good since the PS2.>>9771860We need a Dragon Quest set first. Fuck Final Fagtasy.>No giant brick built golem set>No new mold slimes>Parts and sets that go will with Castle mocs>>9771899Bro Lego just release a $90 set that is made of trash.
>>9771927>Bro Lego just release a $90 set that is made of trash.There is more to that 90th anniversary box than boncle
>>9771896You sound upset, why is that?
>>9771842Dareth is fat
>>9771153Maybe the deepest lore is in Lego Dig, way before Evil Ogel was even thought of. This cancelled Lego Island sequel was based on the Adventurers theme and Ogel was the name of this ancient civilization or the city where the player stayed between archeological explorations.Coincidentally, both this game and Alpha Team would involve zombies portrayed by skeletons.
What was the website with a list of newly added bnp elements?
been a fun build so far.
>>9771283I would absolutely love a GLADOS, gives them an excuse to rerelease chell and it'd make a great display piece
>>9771945BEÉB BEÉB :DDD
>>9771939Because you annoying drooling faggots keep bitching and moaning that a theme for kids focused on actual builds and play features doesn't have minifigs that you collector retards could put on a display and let it sit there forever.Lego is about the bricks, minifigs are secondary.
>>9771958Gotta have my minifigures for the play functions, bro. Just bricks is for boring dust catching display pieces.
>>9771283Super Robot Wars
>>9771962>minifigures>play functionsDo bing bing wahoos really believe this??>Just bricks is for boring dust catching display pieces.Only if you are an unimaginative retard, which you seem to be, since you care only about minifigs that require zero thought to put together.
>>9771963I like the use of the crowbar as a horn.
>NOOOO>HOW DARE PEOPLE ENJOY LEGO IN A WAY THAT'S DIFFERENT FROM THE WAY I DO>I'M SO ANGRY I'M GOING TO PUNCH THE WALL
>>9771980You can enjoy it all you want. Just stop bitching about no bing bing wahoo minifigs.
>>9771229I have it too, the part where you connect the two main parts are really satisfying.
>>9771958For me I'd rather have figs that are NOT $40. New prints are cool but I prefer improved prints. I want improved molds and stronger pieces. New molds are cool but I dont wanna see "Rancor" or "Goat" used "figs" cost 42 times the price of the original set.
>>9771967Not that anon but who is going to drive my built cars and ships? God? A ghost? Hollow Man? Get real, friend.
>>9771963>>9771968Breh.>>9771980>>9771994I like Nintendo stuff but the weird Mario/Batteries Not Included shit is wack and most of the enemies don't even look accurate.>Yeah, pay $40 for a bunch of regular color plates and bricks and stickers you can probably just print yourself for whatever mobile shite it does>$10 for a Duplo looking costumeThe Luigi's Mansion stuff and flying Koopa Airship is legit tho.
>>9771994"Bing bing wahoo" is for the LEGO Mario fidget spinners you fucking newfag.
>>9772034Can you show me a Lego Mario Fidget Spinner?
>>9772041You really are a fucking newfag, they're referred to as fidget spinners because they're both for ADHD-riddled faggots like you.
>>9772011>The Luigi's Mansion stuff and flying Koopa Airship is legit tho.It looks as bad as everything else to me. I'm tempted to buy a Peach's castle for parts to make a real Minifig Scale MOC. Hopefully that peach stained glass window piece isnt too much money second hand because that's pretty much all I want out of this goofy ass theme.
>>9771927No one gives a shit about your boring ass boomer jarpigs we need Undertale and Amogus Lego because they actually relevant and people actually care about them. In 20 years no one will know what a Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy is and no one will play that boring ass DVD menu gameplay horse shit
>>9772070Retard, the dq and ff franchises are almost 40 years old
>>9771423>Try copying actual architectureThat might be it. Thank you anon.
>black people are old white men and a dog>obnoxious fat pig is transWhat did reddit mean by thisI dont think they know how to virtue signal right
>>9772079Actually all the trans are fat are you sure this wasn't subtle bait lol
>>9772072Shut up boomer go buy a Mario minifig
>>9772050Show me the spinner anon.I want to see this fucking LEGO branded Mario Fidget Spinner.
>>9772050Do you even know what a fidget spinner is?
>>9771119he does buy his own sets (with his parents money, that is). afaik he doesn't get anything sent to him, he just buys literally everything.
>>9772070>Undertale and AmogusBaiterino.>>9772079Uhhh, this matches a little too well.
>>9772117Is this NSFW?
>>9772117Cyberman if he MCU
>>9772126was zane built with a robo cock?
>>9771958>focused on actual buildsAt current scale, the builds suck, because everything is far too large to properly depict anything in a cost or space effective way. Minifig scale is perfect because it's the perfect medium to depict most ip. And go figure, an adult forum that likes Lego prefers to treat it like model building rather than playing with large action figures that make noises when bopped with qr codes.
>>9772117I don’t understand what you mean by posting this. It’s just a regular guy, just naked.>>9772135What are you talking about? Why would he have a prosthetic dick?
>>9772138>Why would he have a prosthetic dick?Maybe Dr Julien got lonely
>>9771283The Witcher 3, Metal Gear Solid, Uncharted, Final Fantasy, God of War, Legend of Zelda, Halo, Mass Effect, Bioshock, Red Dead Redemption, Last of Us 1, Resident Evil, the list goes on and on but sadly only Uncharted is likeyly to happen even tho TLG advertises the adult sets as 18+ the spineless faggots would never touch actual 18+ vidya properties
>>9772151Anon, gamers don't buy toys
>>9771863when I was a kid I haven't watched star wars yet and thought the nostrils were this minifigure's eyes
>>9772152>Tallneck set sold out everywheregamers don't buy toys because they barely make any game toys these days and when they do it's shit, I just want some more variety in licensed shit fucking sick of star wars, harry potter and capeshit, at least most of those games have interesting designs for sets that can be used for other builds.
>>9772158And have another overflop? That'd be nice, picking up sets after shelfing and extreme discounts.
>>9772005A wojtu, obviously.
>>9772011>most of the enemies don't look accurateBut isn't that the point?? It's supposed to be Lego versions of them. Complete visual accuracy is idiotic.
>>9772137>And go figure, an adult forum that likes Lego prefers to treat it like model building rather than playing with large action figures that make noises when bopped with qr codes.Given how people whine about lack of Mario minifigs, it serms more like Lego is treated like Funko Pops in here.Also, I don't care if things are minifig scale, the focus is still the builds, minifigs are just accessories to those builds.
>>9770454I hate what lego has done to it's themes. No I'm not talking about licenseshit. The idea was to have a system in a system. Meaning the lego system put into different topics with a range of sets. And while that's still the case for most of the themes, they absolutely murdered their original stuff.Now only City is left and we get stuff that doesn't even belong there like the recent Space subtheme. It's called City not Space. It doesn't make sense.Then there is Creator which isn't even a theme but just a label for all sorts of sets that lego doesn't want to create actual themes for. Maybe I'm too autistic but there is so much lost potential in the stuff they could be doing.
>>9772181We always had NASA in City I remember them from the early 90's to 2000's
>>9772152Gamestop is 80% Funko Pops
>>9772186What about the moonbase?
>>9772175Please tell me how minifigure scale building blocks = Funko Pops
>>9772189It's a base on the moon during present day
>>9772191You are strawmanning me.The bitching is about lack of Mario minifigs, meaning those are somehow more important than playsets for children all about building things.
>>9772175Mario is still a character driven game, and most people remember Lego as a roleplaying toy from their childhood, so it makes sense that minifigures are popular. They also usually accompany the best builds because minifigures are specifically scaled to work with Lego bricks in a certain way.I just want a Peach's castle that functions as a model / playset that I can add on to and that characters can walk through. I'd be fine with micro-scale like the big Hogwarts.
>>9772199Then build it anon, nothing is stopping you.Oh wait, it's not the castle you care about.Just go collect action figures then.
>>9772199Also, character driven game??Mario games are mainly about platforming, it's not some story focused game like The Last of Us for example.
>>9772194Yes but putting it into a city looks a bit akward.
>>9772205Convert it into a quarantine facility for minifigs infected with smallblox
Aside from looking through feedback is there anything I should look out for before making a expensive bricklink order?
>>9772237look at your bank account and do the math of your personal expenses
>>9772237Look at the store terms. Some stores charge fees on paying with paypal, handling/packing supplies, lot amounts, etc. Lots of other info can be hidden in there too.
>>9772204You literally drive a character
>>9772199>I'd be fine with micro-scale like the big Hogwarts.Exists in that stupid question block that isnt even from mario 64
>>9772202Why don't you build it Protip you can't
>>9772079I'm just imagining Statler and Waldorf saying something like:>Kids today, always coming out as Pansexual, Dreamsexual, Bisexual or some other form of sexuality>Well, I'm asexual and you never see me getting horny when I see the letter A>Dohohohohoho
I usually suck at feeling blind bags, but I managed to find Kermit today. I feel strangely accomplished.
>>9772181>tfw no shf haibara
Greetings LG! It's been a while. Today I bring you a recent MOC I managed to find some time to build a few weeks back. The LunaCorp Manta, a medium sized ship for one of my factions. In universe the ship is supposed to engage larger/capital ships since its weapons allow it to dish quite a bit of damage to such targets. Due to its large size, it is not very maneuverable and thus will usually sortie out escorted by smaller interceptors that screen its approach and generally defend it on its way.
>>9772171I mean that they could have probably made more accurate enemies in blocks. Only Banzai BIl really looks accurate and Goimbas are too big
>>9772455The inspiration for this came from a build someone posted here maybe 5-6 years ago, using a similar wing piece to create a spaceship. While the poster may or not be here, his idea remained in my head, and now I've managed to make something similar. The stickers were already on the wing when I got it, I decided to leave them on since I don't feel they take away that much from the overall look of the build.
My brother (29) has his birthday in a couple daysIs this a good set?
>>9772459If he likes lego Star Wars display pieces, yes
>>9772181>Anon proceeds to ignore the fact that Ninjago exists
>>9772457Very cool anon. I’m a sucker for the trans neon green
>>9772079It is even gayer.
>>9771945show more benis
>>9772186City subthemes were always based on the City. Ironically enough the Space Subtheme from 2011 would have fit way better into City then this.
>>9772472I didn't. I left it out on purpose because I was talking about the original 3 themes that are now scattered across City, Creator and Ideas.
>>9772425I'm just glad I managed to get Honeydew AND Beaker.
>>9772459Get him a Fortrex instead
I'm going through the desginer videos right now and you clearly tell how it went from soul to soulless. It's scary.https://youtu.be/BW3fO_vwIw0https://youtu.be/piHTRhk6TKE
>>9772549>soul>boring building designed by a womanpick one
they were so proud of this pathetic set they made the bald dickhead do a designed video for the set
>>9772549I skimmed through some of the videos and every lego designer looks like a massive faggot. no wonder the only good sets they've made in the last 10 years are redesigns of old sets
>>9772567It's a far left company. You can't expect a whole lot these days.
These new Ninjago sets look like bootlegs, what is that stupid dragon outfit? We Super Saiyan now?
>it's a incel /pol/suckers episodeAlso what the fuck was Lego thinking we Brickheadz? >Want the the fucking ugly Funkopop crowd!!Honestly they remind of Castle Crashers or Alien Hominid
anyone have the messymaru frame instructions?
>>9772570Gimmicks to peddle toys to children, every year they introduce new outfits and vehicles, or new power ups for the ninja.Though I'm tempted to buy this set for me snek waifu.
>>9772570with the amount of exo-force robot arms used I could only hope for a new exo-force line. maybe a crossover or somthing
>>9771283>>9771287Regardless, it's a good set. Fun build.
>>9772626its a wholesome build full of potential new pieces and epic feelings of discovery and awe like when playing the game for the first time
Not had the leisure to MOC the past two years. Was wondering how this chassis rates for 6 wide builds?

Very fun grey box build.
>>9772747I just want that yellow troop
>>9772608Wondering why there is so much furry porn in the Lego threads
>>9772614Holy shit someone actually made Gravity Rush lego. Imagine an entire Hekseville made of Lego. Even micro scale it would be amazing
>>9772597Brick heads would be cuter if they looked more like Servbots from Megaman Legends and not ugly with ugly beady eyes. It's like only Japan knows how to make chibi shit.
>>9772549ITS NOT EVEN THE RIGHT BLOCKAHHHHHHHH
>>9772455What is that giant wing from?
>>9772858A plane>>9772843Are you really surprised that an autistic toy attracts people with autistic fetishes?
I never saw snake tits in my life and I'm 32 and in the past week I saw 3 or 4 sets of snake tits wtf
Does this have soul?
>>9770454Is this an illegal connection
>>9772894Why would you do this. You’re supposed to display 18+ sets exactly like the instructions
>>9772889Wish we got more shit like using an upside down head in this stuff or other oddities in design
>>9772889No but it would if you stuck three hundred 1x1 pieces everywhere

>>9773352Upside down head with the clip is pure show of power in design, we really should get more wack minifigs nowadays
>>9773400I mean I got nothing against upside down heads like IG-88 but I mean compare it to what it's supposed to look like. It just looks goofy.
>>9773424>this children's toy is goofy and should be a scaled down miniature like my wholesome war gaming
>>9773427No, it should be a mold or brick built head.*Smugmoji*

well I finally finished it.royally fucked the differential so it doesn't even roll backwards or forwards.Fixing it from what I can tell is going to take forever so I might just leave it for now.Good looking set though.

>>9773547i agree with almost everything you said, except Diablo 1 and 2 are infinitely better than Gauntlet, and you're gay if you think otherwise.

That little bionicle is so frckin cute
>>9773548Life is a waste of time, now go on, pull the trigger.
>>9772889This invoked a sour memory, I remember being in a toy store in 2003 (I was 10) and looking at those small side sets, 8-9€ each. They seemed cool, but naturally I then bought another fucking bohrok kal and left.

>>9773690There's a dude selling all of the og for $25 near me but I don't want the cases cluttering my space. Otherwise I'd buy that shit in a heartbeat.>>9773715Do the rest, including the meteor ones
>>9773807Until they sneak away half the collection to build their own birdhouse and flex on other birds.
>>9773839>Otherwise I'd buy that shit in a heartbeatAnd I just bought bunch of dupes because it had the cases I was missing and then there was the box for extra discs that absolutely tickled my fancy and I don't even know why. At least I gave one to friend of a friend when he was over since he was like "Aww shit I had this one when I was a wee lad" and made his evening. We were both drunk.
>>9773846Fucking nice man, good friend you are!
>>9773492>well I finally finished it.>royally fucked the differential so it doesn't even roll backwards or forwards.top fuckin kek. did you not check the functions as you built it? you can pretty easily tell something isn't working right long before its too late to fix it.
>>9773896Not feeling it.
>>9773598hes still in it, you can just barely see his legs in the drivers seat.>>9773872kind of but not really. I don't have a large working area and at most I just moved one of the wheels at a time for fun while building it. Not once during the build did I set it down, put the wheels on it and try to actually roll it around.First set I'd built with a differential so I wasn't even really paying attention to it.
Bought LEGO for the first time. Some minifigures/characters, a few props. I've fallen in. There's no escape

>>9772096he invented some kind of secure robo pill box.he has enough money of his own.
Kinda bullshit that the green passenger train set has a basic bitch track while the freight train set has an extra switch track.
>>9772457canopy not fully enclosed, they will die..
>>9773982the pillbot doesn't even currently exist, it's just a thing he's 'created' but I highly doubt it has brought any money in to him. other than that he's had some internships and supposedly some startups that have been acquired. I promise you the majority of the money he's spending on lego comes from his parents.
>>9773690pffff, i remember having all of those except purple and the ice blue/white was the first i got. never seen them anymore, i guess my mother threw them away eventually.
>>9773918I like this locomotive, reminds me of Dolgoch, or Rheneas, if you're a Thomasfag.

>>9774079They fit, the thing is most tend to be soft rubber so they don't really 'click' into place like normal hairpieces.

I'm gonna have a minor giggle when the BTS set comes out in 2 years when everyone's forgotten about that band and it sells like 3 sets.
>>9772163Because Lego was an idiot and listen to Bluzzard that Overwatch was popular instead of telling them to fuck off and make Warcraft instead
>>9774203I mean, this is the same company that made overwatch sets long after overwatch lost relevence, and waited until 2020 to make Mario sets.
>>9773965Its not smurfs lol

>>9770839That's based, where'd you get these? I'd get one of Blacktron II in a heartbeat

>>9773467>>9774324here you are
>>9774070I actually have tried it with those, those flags are made out of a different type of plastic apparently, they don't respond strongly at all to plastic cement, there might be another type of welding glue that works with them though that's stronger but I have no idea what it is. Lego makes their parts out of quite a few different types of plastic. Tamiya cement works great for ABS, but doesn't work on Polypropylene for example which is what I'm pretty sure most of the flags are made from since it's slightly more flexible. So, if you did want to fix clips like that, I honestly have no idea what you can use. Super glue (Cyanoacrylates) would work, but i'm not sure it would work like a welding cement and be prone to breakage still. The flags could also be made out of Polypropylene, but I'm really just not sure what type of plastic Lego makes the older clip-on flags from, but it's definitely not ABS or Polystyrene. https://www.lego.com/ms-my/sustainability/product-safety/materials/

I remember lego.com being so much better before VIP was redone.
>>9774490Just checked my order half has sent but the other half is still in warehouse but now I have noticed that the gwp easter chicks was cancelled from my order.
bros what do you do with your lego collection when you move?personally i think i'll just disassemble everything into separate ziploc bags but i'm also considering separating parts of each build into chunks as big and flat as possible so i can quickly rebuild them in the new place
>>9774426People who actually do college dont do shit like this. This is literally reserved for people living off grants and free money or the kids of rich people who can afford to pay their flight tickets, lodging, and personal studio apartment.>t. went to school with exactly these kinds of people
>>9774571I just bought like 30 boxes and put everything down assembled. It's not an efficient use of space in any way but it is easy.
>>9774519Small family business. They press the bricks by hand. Give em a break.>>9774571I break some sets in half to fit in boxes. Some boxes are big enough to store big sets. I'd just remove and sensitive parts like antennas and stuff that snaps off/not for play.
>>9774571I ship most of the bigger stuff, but I usually end up trashing all the smaller sets
>>9774611End yourself (from ever buying Lego again)
So after inquiry as to why the Easter chicks had been cancelled they gave 1k vip points but I don't get any replacement apparently, pretty shit buying from them.
>>9774068RightA lot cleaner>>9774519I ordered literally the very night the sale startedBack OrderDelayedAnother Email the set is on Back OrderMain set shipped but yea it shipped with a single shred of Brown Paper in the box and the bonus almost falling out of the box
Explain these connections.
Bros im about to have a panic attack. Ill admit im a dust collector i like to build sets and display them but at this point i have too many sets built. I always tell myself ill just disassemble them but i dont even know where to begin. Please if you have any advive let me know. Do i just go through the instructions in reverse?
So will Lego actually bring back the classic theme that got voted a while ago or will it just be a one off thing with the new rumored castle?
>>9774704>Do i just go through the instructions in reverse?That's what I do, yeah
>>9774704Get that orange tool thingy and just go from top to bottom. Put all the pieces in a big ol Ziploc and put that in a box.

>>9774487w-waitare you not supposed to store them built
>>9774577why do they do this? social media clout? virtue signalling?
>>9774390I have figured out, Banjo is a normal minifig with a buildable backpack which has mixels joints to connect the wings and the head connects to a cilinder with a hollow stud and a claw connected to it on the bottom which connects to a bar in a modified 2x1 in the top of the backpack
Where do you get your moc inspirations from? Is it just looking up pictures online?

this is something that nobody cares about but me, but i need to tell someonethe turret that is included with 76104 hulkbuster smash up does NOT belong to the outriders! it's wakandan tech1. the outriders were a battalion of feral skirmishers. they did not use tactics, they just zerg rush anything in front of them2. the turret uses purple3. the turret has multi wing sectionslook at the design of the royal talon fighter. multi segmented wings, the same dotted white line decals. it's wakandan.

>>9774757That's the thing, there's a big population of people who donate just to see that. It's like they think theyre being acknowledged for a split second and it's kinda sad.
>>9774772Yeah, both and they literally don't live in the real world. They never have to worry debts or late fees, budgeting, etc. Like very oblivious people, very ignorant, but also mostly way more happier than "normal" people.
>>9774863I dunno, maybe they stole it
>>9774838Look at stuff from the real world and try to translate it into Lego. Looking at other people's mocs also helps with building techniques. Also look up official Lego instructions for sets you don't have to see how stuff is built.>>9774927OUTRIDERS STOLE MY TURRET
>>9771283I would kill for a Legend of Zelda line. Give me a Kakariko Village set, and a bunch of dungeons with gimmick play features and hidden weapons for Link.
>>9774863...There are retards who don't realize this? They were in the fucking movie.
>>9774704>go through instructions in reverseThanks for the laugh anon
>>9774704throw your sets onto concrete really hard. nothing will go wrong and they get easily disassembled.
This is everything I built over the weekend, starting Friday night and finishing about an hour ago. I think I'm only missing two of the sets of the Speed Champions line, 76909 and 76904.I hope they come out with more soon but they just released some new ones so I doubt they will for a while. Next up is the Cat D11. I don't have anyone to talk to about Legos so I come here, sorry for the blog.
>>9775065forgot I built this too, only picture I have.pardon my desk, my build space is confined to whatever I can free up in front of my monitor.
>>9775065where are you going to store it when it's not on that table?
>>9775070haven't figured that out yet. The BMW technic set fits nicely on a shelf and I can fit 5 of the Speed Champions sets in front of it. aside from that I have no idea.
Why the fuck has Lego spent the last 20+ years making so many fucking Soi Wars sets? Why can't we get better UCS sets? Why is fucking half their releases all that same rehashed bullshit? I get people keep spending money on it but for fucks sake pick a different IP and get some licenses.
>>9774704You can move a mountain if you do it brick by brickhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wb1o3puaHz8
>>9775151I know this is hard for your neckbeard brain to wrap around but lego is for kids. Every 5 years there's a new batch of kids to sell the same sets to.
You know what pisses me off? That Lego is more than happy to make shitty one-off molds that will never get used again, but absolutely REFUSE to make generic male hat and helmet pieces with hair (and very few hyperspecific licensed ones, even). They'll make female ones at the drop of a hat, but every male figure just gets to be bald, fuck 'em.
>>9775151Star wars fans have always been chumps like that so lego gets to print money, there isn't man ips that would do the same.
>>9775172This. There's also a new batch of adults getting back into Lego, so the sets come back bigger and better.If people want better adult sets they should probably just learn to MOC their own ships or licensed shit. There's even people out there that print custom stickers.
>>9774838all the media I've ever consumed. designs from vidya anime tv movies real life things etc.
Honestly a really fun small setPlus hey a great Ahsoka and Maul
>>9775244Not worth 25 loonies.
>>9775187Not to mention there are several websites dedicated to selling you instructions to things if you're just too lazy to learn how to moc your own.
>>9775247$20 USWorth it for the two Minifigures and Throne alone honestly.Now Paz can rule as it should be
may 4th haul arrived, purchased it with my government disability neetbux
>>9775258>Government autism funbucks on legoAbsolutely based tho I want the Cantina so bad
>>9775258Erectile dysfunction counts as a disability these days?
>>9774838Sometimes it's the pieces.
What's the deal with people add an "s" to Lego? It's so bad even people pronounce Bionicle with an "s"
>>9775279i liek Legoes. :)
>>9775279i was smoking too much marijuana while i played with my legos
>>9775279I do like me some Bionicles.
>>9775279bionicles is legos technics
>>9775279Because Lego is awkward as a noun, how do you say you have multiple Lego? Add another noun? Lego sets? Lego bricks? Normal fags say Legos because it's easier to say.
>>9775339>how do you say you have multiple LegoI have lots of lego>Normal fags say Legos because it's easier to say.Imagine being happy with doing the same wrong thing as a normie
>>9774571>t. still live with my parentsI trust them not to get rid of my collection before I make second trips to get the rest of them
>>9774600>>9774743>Arguing about whether or not Lego trains have soulAll trains have SOULATHS
>>9775355Imagine being autistic enough to care
>>9774571Last I moved I just packed everything I liked enough to take with me ASAP in whatever. Moved the Creator VW Beetle in a messenger bag. Also lucked out and had plastic containers just the right size for modulars.
>>9775361i wish i had enough autism to build a huge lego train track in my house but alas, i am merely a failed normie
>>9775377>Imagine being autistic>On the autists of the world website>On the toy section of the autists website>On the plastic brick section of the toy section of the autists websiteImagine NOT being autistic enough to care
>>9775279Lego = a single LegoLegos = multiple Legoswhat is it that you aren't understanding?
>>9775392Multiple of "Lego" is "Lego bricks"
>>9775394Actually it's LEGO blocks all capitol letters.
>>9775172People dont even realize Star Wars is for kids anymore.
>>9775380The autism isn't the restricting factor here, it's the cost. If you have the cash, don't let your memes be dreams
>>9775339>>9775392But Lego is plural though, the addition of the S is redundant.
You're all a bunch of fucking legoes. :DDDDD
>>9775462>pluralizing an adjective
>order retired set on BL>2 days later>get messaged from seller >he's currently on vaccation>files Order Cancel Request because he apparently doesn't have the set instock
>>9775555Quads of bad luck, time to find a better seller.
>>9773690>>9773717>Slizers are given minifig accesories>a couple years later bionicle accesories appear as parts in System setsPottery.Besides that, Did you ever happen to cross systems?
>>9775556That's the thing though. I made sure to pick a seller that looked trustworthy.
Name a set with more SOUL than picrelated
>>9775570Time to make surer of it next time before buying legoes from BL.
still wish we got a lego version of littlebigplanet or at least one of its spinoffs like karting or something, with its hoverjets and tank treads and whatnot
>>9775601this would never transfer well into lego, this would've been a trash theme.
>>9775066>/ck/ AND /toy/Nice.
>>9775247It was $16 in the US.
>>9775611Agreed. The overall shapes would be correct and the builds would probably be easy/good. But the overall aesthetic would be wrong. Knitting and Fabric would be very difficult to communicate without a shit ton of prints, stickers, and actual cloth pieces. And that just seems like that would make the sets crazy overpriced.
>>9770484Why is there a surfboard?
>>9775574I always regretted not getting this one. Since the theme is returning though I'm sure it will get an updated version. They better keep the dinosaur tiki heads though
Lego please rerelease this set!I want some single modern buildings as architecture sets again and not just landmarks and skylines.
>>9775696How hard is it to just BL it? It seems like it wouldn't be too expensive, minus the plaque perhaps
new Giza set looks neat
What are those rubber colors you can select in studio?
>>9775699looks like a very boring build to me
>>9775699>Not even a whole pyramidTrash
>>9775735Yeah look at it again, the side is clearly smaller than the face and the back is missing, maybe it will have shit going on inside but they could have had a full pyramid that opened
>>9775740They know people will just put it on a shelf and merely glance at it every so often.
>>9775740even if it's a slice this is pretty excellent imo
>>9775740So the gimmick is remove the casing stones to reveal modern day pyramid, and the shit going on inside is very weak to the point why bother? Just a few thin hallways
>>9775740>>9775751It's an aDuLtS WeLcum set anyway, why couldn't they just do the whole pyramid and jack the price up a bit? I was 100% gonna buy it until I saw it was just half.
>>9775755>Inb4 J-just buy 2 and moc it!
>>9775761>he can't mocOH NO NO NO NO HAHAHAHAHA
>>9775751>$260 to get the full pyramidDropped
>>9775764>buying two sets and sticking them together counts as moccing
>>9775765>Still don't get the full pyramid as the side is less than half the length of the front>$260 for 3/4 of a pyramid
>>9775751Interior hallways are accurate. And this is building in progress, not current day.Still shit.
>>9775771>he can't afford two pyramids
>>9775775>Interior hallways are accurate.Are they? The door is on the larger front facing side yet the hallway lines up from the right side if looking at it from the frontLooks like the interior is rotated 90° anticlockwise
>>9775777>moving the goalposts
>>9775774>3/4 of a pyramid
>>9775784The correct reaction to this set
>>9771804it doesn't take much to trigger you does it, snowflake?
>>9775778Yes. Current day entrance is made by tomb robbers. Main entrance is facing north. Nile was east of Pyramid, next to queen Khufu's satellite pyramids. What you see as entrance is just entrance to funeral temple, so called false doors.I think it is very good recreation of course excluding underground chamber due to lego limitations.
>>9775804wait so thats all that is inside there? honestly I only just like a year ago realized Egypt is in Africa, my biggest smoothbrain moment of my life.
>>9775804I just want an egypt theme about exploring temples and pyramids and shit. Could be literally any time pyramid and I'd be into it.
>>9775811>thats all that is inside thereAll were allowed to see
>>9775811Yep. Few hallways and 3 chambers. Great gallery and thats it.
>Spinner keeps going out of bounds>Build arena out of basic bricks>The spinner now constantly hits the brick walls, making the most godawful ticking sound possibleBack to the drawing table, I'm thinking now is a good time to experiment with DOTS bracelets for walls.
>>9775813>I just want an egypt theme about exploring temples and pyramids and shit.We literally had two and the second sold like shit because kids are retarded so it'll never happen again.
>>9775826>we had twoI know. I want more>it'll never happen againI know. I want more
>>9775826>the second sold like shitBecause most of builds were some shitass animal stone 'robots'
>>9775833Only the sphinx set. The pyramid has the scorpion but that was only a sidebuild. And still, it's not like Ninjago doesn't do stupid bullshit like that now
>>9775813I want historical modulars, either how they looked when constructed or how they look now, but minifig scale and complete buildingsThrow in some modern signage and maybe some other parts and it can easily be used for historical settings or for a modern city as a heritage site
>>9775836Not only sphinx. There was another set with Cobra or smaller stone scarab. Pyramid was the only sensible structure but that was the lagest set. Compare this to Adventurers desert series where we had small tomb with cool chain opening mechanism. And that was like 3rd smallest set not counting polybag tier ones.
>>9775774>3/4Wait what? How does this work? The capstone is a regular 1x2 half pyramid piece, right? Or is the front slope not 45 degrees even though the side are? What about the corners? Wouldn't they need to be 45° on one side and much steeper on the other? Do pieces like that exist?
>>9775887Must be the angle of photograph, I've just counted the studs in this pic and it is half after all
>>9775559I am in the process if giving mixel joint and tile arms to all of my old Bionicle I had as a kid because I just love mixel joints and it's so fun to move
>>9775982>That not-quite-attached part on the handYou do realize we have to mock it now.
>>9776059Wait but how is that even possible if it wasnt attached right the pin wouldn't be able to go through the hole. I
>>9775710when you do a render they're matte instead of shiny
>>9775839The sphinx is easily ignoreable as a animated statue, can't comment on the cobra but the lil scarab is neat.
>>9776189Fuck wrong post. >>9775850PQ was based people are dumb to think otherwise.
>>9776188Makes sense. I thought there maybe was special bricks with a different texture or something.
>over the past two days jang did a non stop 44 hour steam building the UCS Falcon in one sittingHow much more insane do you think /ourguy/ is now?
>>9774724I always found them weird. Are they linked to donations and shit or can viewers just type something in chat to trigger them?
>>9776233the way they work on jang's stream is that you accrue points over time for free and can use the sounds and emotes for free.
My May 4th order is estimated to be delivered tomorrow, but it’s FedEx so I’m not gonna hold my breath that it’ll get here on time. Even worse I fly out of town Friday morning and the thought of $150 of Lego just sitting on my front porch for the weekend fills me with dread. Pray for me Anons.
>>9774724>>9776233i hate all that shit so much. i find twitch culture to be such utter fucking cancer, i dont see how people just sit there for hours with a stream on.also, i only recently found out jang streamed, when i saw his announcement for the 1-year anniversary millennium falcon stream. i remember him posting a massive essay back when that set came out about how he had no interest in the set or the source material, na dhow itd have been stupid for him to spend all that money on it and how hed never do it.i guess now that he can make shitloads from retarded twitch zoomers throwing money at him, hes changed his tune...
>>9775751>the shit going on inside is very weak to the point why bother? Just a few thin hallwaysI mean it’s literally accurate to how it is in real life. What do you want, play features like a spike pit and mummy with light up eyes? This isn’t a Johnny thunder set
>>9776219Stop with this "our guy" shitIt's so fucking cringy. Jang is a desperate shill trying so hard to stay relevant
>>9776278>This isn’t a Johnny thunder seNow you're starting to get why it's shit
>>9775611>>9775624i meant the games, not the theme
My may the 4th shit arrived minus Mos Eisley. Hoth Battlepack arrived slightly bent in it's own box. Beskar keychain is pretty hefty but it's made in china. Dunno if what I'll do with the Homestead kitchen. My autism says to grab a Uncle Owen fig but my evil sinister side says to just take a different fig and make him Uncle Owen.>>9776258Inshallah.>>9776261Money for be changing a nigga.Personally I don't think I'd ever buy a UCS set. I mean they look super accurate as models but they're just so expensive for 1,000 grey bricks.>>9776284Our guy is John Lego.
Sweet half of my pick a brick order showed up now it gets to sit in the corner until the other half shows up because I can't make my carriages without the other half, I'm honesty pissed that they cancelled the gwp and didn't replace it even though I did not like it anyway. So I guess I have another 4-6 weeks wait until I get the rest of my order.
>>9776370>Personally I don't think I'd ever buy a UCS set. I mean they look super accurate as models but they're just so expensive for 1,000 grey bricks.I like them, i can see why others dont. jang was based to be honest about not caring about, its cringe as fuck that hes sold out, and to twitch zoomers of all people
>>9776370Just get 2 of these for Lukes family
>>9775392same case as fish and fishes
>>9775710wheels are not plastic but rubber, like exo forxe otaku hairstyles and literally every other rubber piecedo not some colors will heavily impact (neon and light mainly) on picture rendering
Which sets you think will make it?
>>9776409Construction site is the sleeper that nobody is really talking about but will make it for sure. Overall I predict: Construction, diner because it's cheap, train station, brick west, and the steam powered science set. The observatory could potentially replace the steam powered but I don't really see anything else winning.
Do people play with the lego they build?
>>9776409Lots of them are squeezed into a high price-point, so that's going to make the big sets more competitive with one another. I think the 1950s Diner is going to go first. It's the only set in that mid price point and I think it has a broad appeal.Aside from that, I'd guess the Observatory, Chalet, Waterfall and Train Station.I really hope the steam punk lab makes it, but I don't have my hopes too high.
>>9776453>Do people play with the lego they build?I do

>>9776370i haven't been able to bring myself to open the homestead yet. i don't know how much i care for a kitchen when i could sell it sealed for $100 AUD
>>9776796Disgusting, but not immersion-breaking.
>>9776796i like all these weapon builds they remind me of terraria a little bit
