I don't have that much space in my apartment so I only take them out when I want to play with them.
Not that guy, and maybe you're trolling, or maybe I'm just an out of touch old man, but I had never heard of left shark until today.
As far as CMF designs being influenced only by what's relevant or popular, just look at this guy.
To be fair, I hadn't either and I'm
It just seemed obvious to me what they were referencing with this minifig once I looked up both things.
I was going over something with my wife later and still had left shark open in a tab -just the image- and she goes "what's with the left shark?" Apparently she heard ALL about it cause it was all oer facebook and all that.
And she's old.
So I guess even old people can be down with pop culture?
It was a social media thing. It only lasted for a couple of days, but for those days it was all over Facebook and Twitter. If you're not the type to use those networks, it wouldn't be surprising that you didn't see that sort of thing.
I think that Holy Grail is much, much more popular than some SNL skit. Monty Python is internationally popular; SNL is relatively limited to the US. I mean, sure, we watch it outside of the US and the more controversial/successful skits make it to popular media but I don't think that it's a phenomenon in the same way that Monty Python is, or even that Left Shark was for a couple of days.
So, a reasonable person must ask themselves a question: is it more likely that Lego based a CMF on something that was immensly popular all over the internet, with their target demo, within the last 24 months, or is it more likely that they based something on an SNL skit that 95% of their consumer-base probably hasn't seen?
I don't mean to rant, but the whole 'muh millenials' thing coming from older people is embarrassing. I'm not young, either; I just understand that not everything is targeted at me. See: Minecraft Lego.
Also, I want that minifig but I know I'd end up breaking the legs and the arms popping them in and out so much...
Anyone else ever have issues with torsos and waists? Belts? Hips? What do you call the piece the legs are attached to? anyway, anyone ever have issues with those parts breaking when popping arms and legs out?
It's the only thing I had available for them. I figure aside from stepping on them or something, a minifigs greatest enemy is dust.
A jar is good enough.
Do any of you with small apartments or not enough space still display some legos? if so how?
My first lego set haha, cost me 12$, but i'm starting to love legos again. My second lego set is the big bang theory set (i don't care of the show is shit). I'm thinking about getting one of those lots thats sells from ebay by pound.
>MFW finally finishing putting together the Doctor Who kit
My first actual kit in a long fucking time. I didn't expect 600 pieces to take me anywhere near as long as it did but damn it was satisfying.
>It's most likely that the shark is based on neither of those thing. Like the pig or the unicorn.
That's what I thought.
>verymuch adult oriented
>filled with fucking vehicles which shit up the actual building and the price
ghostbusters firehouse didnt come with a fucking bustercopter you cunts
Maybe they can't make a straight up series. The merchandise rights to this were only just worked out.
This might be the one thing they can make so they wanted it to cover as much as possible.
Just discovered my oldest minifig: a busted-up black Futuron dude with no helmet, no hands, one arm and no legs.
Gonna fix him up with two peg-legs and a pirate's hook, and one of those robot arms from the collectable minifig robot,
I figure I might as well embrace the whole "triple amputee" thing.
Well, they've been out for a week and I've got all but four. I've saved the biggest for last and I'm glad I did. The anticipation has been great!
I'd set them up and pose for you guys or something but so much of it gets taken apart and mixed up when my kid and I play with them. Now that I think about it, I don't really get time to do anything with any of these on my own...
Kings mech is the BEST. It's been getting ALL of the play since we got it.
Yeah, sure. I was just arguing with the dingus who lamented millennials and implied that more people would know about his obscuro SNL skit from eighty years ago than a popular, current meme.
Beast master set is fun... You twist the round brick the chains are attached to back and forth and it makes the chain chomps up front snap their jaws. It's also (as far as I know) the only set besides the 100$ fortrex that come with the little globlin badguys.
The one of the new robbers has the perfect mustache.
Have any,of you guys ever purchased stuff on Bricklink from outside the country? I'm looking to grabs few of the older technic sets and have never ordered anything on Bricklink. Is the process fairly painless?
To be completely honest I can only make something like five at once now with the parts I have on hand, and some would have to be modified versions of existing characters or else original designs (not that that isn't a good thing, I guess!)
At this point I wouldn't be surprised if it's something like forty now. I just don't know. Some aren't up to my standards though so I guess they don't count? I'll have to count them.
Perhaps I have a problem in that I really like to order parts in large quantities. Another its that seemingly common parts like tan spout pieces used for thumb joints are surprisingly rare and therefore expensive, and I do mean expensive. Still, at least I should be able to make miss rabbit from a little while back with what I have.
Large bricks are always useful for buildings (duh), but I find they're also useful for filling out the inside of large brick built MOCs, something that smaller parts just don't cut.
You don't send the items until the guy has sent you the money you ask for via the invoice you send him. This is common practice as far as I can tell, and if any funny business comes up Bricklink has a mod system for it.
Throw a remorseful-looking fig in pic related or one of these http://img.bricklink.com/PL/973pb0226.jpg and you're halfway there.
lads, chance to buy the first at-at 4483, complete with figs, worth it? I know I loved it as a kid.
>new LEGO prisoner's old-fashioned mustache
I dunno, I'm much more fond of Capaldi and Smith. My only irk is that the Capaldi costume they used is such a gaudy purple. The coat from his regeneration episode was a much darker shade.
I was supposed to be in bed an hour ago but I got distracted as I was cleaning up all the books I laid out on the floor...
>you bought the set with Jestro?!
Fun observation: it looks like each of the spell books has a page in it that teaches the book of monsters to summon one of his generals or "scourges". Here you can see Flama (coming this summer, I guess.), a big demon guy, also coming out this summer and I think the spider one poking out is supposed to be Lavaria?
Waiting for my second FOT in order to make a correct one. Am I the only one here ?
This thing, from last month's promo.
Spend $75 to get this thing, and the main draw are the coupons.
The silhouette looks like Jestro, but we already have him, so it's probably the version of Jestro with pastel blue and purple.
Oh that calendar thing. They're not going to give a highly-desired figure through a promotion that mostly gave the coupons to clueless moms & dads who bought sets for Christmas and scalpers.
Last year the free coupon figs were the LEGO Store Employee and Hoth Han Solo polybags that had been given out previously and were leftover.l
So I've been away for a few weeks, what does /lg/ think of nexo knights now that they're out?
Only opened and built two sets and one Ultimate figure pack so far, Clay's Rumble Blade, Lance's Mecha Horse, and Ultimate Lavaria.
I have Fortrex sitting in my living room unopened and Merlock's Library, Infernox Captures the Queen, and the King's Mech en route from LEGO shop@home.
Clay's Rumble Blade is fucking amazing. Fun fun fun build and the vehicle is way cooler than I expected. Going in, based on the pics I almost just built Clay's sword speeder ship but I'm glad I did the whole thing. The finished model is really awesome and feels almost like some sort of Mad Max vehicle.
Lance's Mecha Horse was a surprisingly complex build for a $20 set, and though I liked it a lot from the pics before building it(it was my most-anticipated set besides Fortrex) in hand it's a bit... wobbly? Loose? Dunno how to describe it. The transformation feature really hobbles both designs. It feels like a half-transformed Transformer. Like if you shake it stuff moves all over. It doesn't hold it's shape well in either form. LOTS of new pieces on it though.
Overall I love the theme. The colors are some of my favorite LEGO colors, the minifigs are all 10/10 so far.
Good vibes all around then! Also yeah, I'm super on the fence about the mechahorse. It looks very unrefined in some aspects. However it turned out to be a lot cheaper than anticipated so I might get it later down the line. I've only picked up 3 sets so far and am planning to get the beast master chariot thingy next. Having a ton of fun with the theme so far, it just works for me.
I would get a bunch IF THEY WOULD ARRIVE HERE. Planning on getting the Ultimates and enough of the big sets to have full set of main knights.
Only 2016 stuff I've seen here is City and 30€ SW sets.
I'm in Australia, and I haven't seen them either. It's really frustrating, cuz shipping costs are INSANE.
My TARDIS was a $80 set, and I ended up paying half again just for fucking shipping. Grumble, grumble...
>A bar for your minifigs to drink at for the New Years party.
Also qualifies as "Finish a moc", but I might add another floor.
I want to try making this droid on the right here
>no female figures on the cover
LEGO YOU HAD ONE JOB!
Why lego is so mysoginistic?!
i dont know about anything else but that head looks EXACTLY like that GlaDos head. so search for GlaDos lego version and see what head they used for it.
other parts are pretty self explanatory i think. mixels parts and tubes for those red limbs.
Just built the new Batmobile set and it's pretty nice for 30 bucks, bunch of Kryptonite crystals, a neat little forklift, some Luthor/normal people mooks and a nice bat-car. The doors are tight as shit though and initially wouldn't move up without tearing the set-up apart, it's a nightmare but it's worth it cause it looks bretty gud
>no female figures on the cover
>Why lego is so mysoginistic?!
Take you CIS gender standards and die you scum!
How do you know that one of those elfs aren't female. How do you know that anyone on that cover conform to your horribly narrow minded views of gender?!? Maby the surfer identifies as a non-binary duel female, maby xir doesn't like that you look at xir and don't see the beautiful woman that xir is. What if the Living Impaired minifigure is gender neutral, but prefers feminine pronouns and adverbs.
You need to check your binary gender-privileged!!!!
the most expensive polish Toy Store have Nexo Knights on sale.
if you're ready to pay 40% more for them now here's your chance!
>Hey at least these came with weapons OTHER than stud shooters...
You are right. The shooter is a nice gimmick, but this set is clearly about minis, so it still bugs me.
I like that they added in Nexo Knight some soldiers.
But i think there are too many Aarons.
i like your opinion
And yes, here in germany monty phyton is still very popular. Because the films are regular on tv. the show is more for insiders.
But we never had SNL on Tv or regular. For a short time i think they had some newer seasons on tv. But as i remember after this not as reruns on prime channels.
From my insights, we now here what it is, but just in "an american sketch/parody show" way.
I like his work.
Its good, but his mini fig wouldnt be lego anymore.
That would be action figures and not customisable minis.
But hios ideas and stuff is amazing.
I finally have time to play video games and build the sets I ordered. Just finished the Dr. Who level and now doing the Level Pack Dr. Who level.
Really like how Benny's ship is made and the Krusty bike is smooth as fuck.
Also Benny'so classic Lego face really makes me wish for a Lego game with classic faces and pieces only.
Like Lego City Undercover, but with the animation of Lego Movie.
That's a big mech guy...
I love this set. Great variety of figs and pieces.
Those customers look a little young, anon...
Also Nexiknights look sick.
Speaking of licensefaggotry, I found a store that had two of these at an ever so slightly reduced price (6% off, according to my math), and bought one of them.
I had been looking for something that would not look out of place in a naval battle against my 70413, so it was a pleasant surprise.
Should I go back and look for the other one? I hear the set is technically retired.
>lego will never have figures with this much of articulation
It sucks that LEGO never used the licence to full potential. While Mega Bloks isn't the best, I'm picking up they're classic TMNT minifigs and sets.
Long story short I have this MOC here than I am attempting to give a coworker as a house warming gift. It's gonna be pretty epic. I ordered the parks off BL and have the LXF file done.
Here's the problem, I am pretty good at LDD but have never made instructions from there. I know the ones it generates suck, I have followed them on some of their instructions for my 600+ piece MOCs. That was fine b/c I knew what I was doing and am versed in Lego.
This gift on the other hand is for someone who has not put a set together in 20 years... ANYWAY... I would be willing to pay if someone could pdf me a file of instructions from a supplied LXF file. Or if anyone has any tips on this, I would be more than happy to do it myself, but it looks incredibly complicated...
Thanks in advance, I have a bit of time (until the end of the month) but I am not sure that would be enough for me to get it done (new dad mode = kill)
Some of the components seem pretty simple, maybe if you tried making a single instruction set for the repeated component that forms the four sides of the tower it'd be easier to work with.
So I thought the same. There are 4 sides, in two pairs, so one set of instructions there, a pillar up the middle, and the base, so a total of 4 instructions two of which need to be repeated.
I've done everything I could, tried making groups and subgroups, split each part into it's own ldd file. Ldd still insists on build from the top down and out of order.
It's no big deal to me, but it'll confuse the person I'm try I g to give it to
Mine were due yesterday ... That feel when waiting for BL orders.....
Yeah, but it's worth it in the end. Do you know how to get proper instructions up, because otherwise I'll be stuck studying the LDD file and pictures and just going off on a limb to build mine.
It's gonna be tedious, but why not take screenshots of the model in various states of its build?
>screenie the final model
>remove pieces a b and c
>screenie that model
>remove pieces d e and f
With the build as simple as it is, I don't think you'd need anything fancy.
As a somewhat collector, the only reason I picked up the Gorilla Grodd set was (for the grodd, of course) and for the Batmech, because of course, it had batman. and despite how godawful it looked, and was, I got it anyways.
Now, how do i fix this thing up? It feels like the designers just said fuck it halfway through, and the set would have felt better without the "batmech" all together.
>mfw the set's great but the build is fucking boring
How did you enjoy that build anon? You're just repeating the same steps over and over.
Can't say for sure, but when Spongebob came out, it was only two sets along with two from Avatar. That summer release was a test to see which theme would be more successful; Spongebob won and ATLA was releagated to a two-set footnote in the annals of Lego history.
>On BL the other day
>Found 4483 AT-AT for really good price w/ all minifigs
>Same store has 4504 Millennium Falcon for a decent price
>Put in cart, but think about it for a second
>Would end up spending several hundred for two sets, two days after I already shelled out $130 for some other stuff
>Dink around for a day or two and think about it, come back after deciding it is worth it after all
I took some shitty pictures of Lavaria with different hair/hats.
I've decided that the slicked back Bruce Wayne/General Zod hair is the sexiest option.
As said, I was mainly looking for a set that would be a match for the Brick Bounty, not really the figs, but they are nice.
I have a cousin who's really into the Tolkien universe, maybe the figures end up as a small gift or something.
My first impulse was to try and add a back so he's not just open to attack from behind. Then I decided to just disassemble the whole thing and Batify Jay's Electro Mech.
My biggest gripe was the flimsy way the chest peice is attached and maybe there's a way to fix it but it just wasn't worth my time. Also net cannons are stupid.
So I thought about doing proper instructions for the additional section and then making the original red our something but after messing with it in ldd for a bit I decided it's probably going to be easier to look at the two side by side and play spot the differences... I did somewhat pull the model apart so I can see them both to compare
>got the Airjitsu Temple as a christmas gift
>pic related just arrived, probably will build it tomorrow
sometimes, life is good
I underestimated how big the large grey baseplate is. 15"x15" is pretty damn sizable. I'm... Gonna be in for a lot of building to make this battle look good.
Keychain, love the bugge.
There's always some lego out displayed in my house and in my GF's house. (They've commandeered one of her shelving.)
Just noticed bootleg turtles are copied from ops concept art. Came with the same weapons.
>Take a new 2016 set and build something ONLY using pieces from it.
This one uses every piece of Ultimate Monster Waifu, including the spare parts.
Try it with offset lighting, so there isn't a giant white reflection right across the face
Also you're missing best hairstyle.
I built this lady a few days ago or so.
Also, I did some counting, and not counting reverse-engineering projects (Tattun's lady, lingonkart's stuff, I've got at this point about 58 original lady creations. That's nice, I suppose.
I've seen the DIY lightbox setups but I just don't have that much space.
It's nice but I still like the slick look.
I'm kind of not certain about her ponytail, because unless viewed from the side it isn't very prevalent. Removing it would allow me to smooth out the back of her head a bit more. Any ideas?
Maybe fifty eight is stretching it. I'll go count again.
Fuck you people, convincing me to spend thirty bucks for a cute knight on a robo horse. Worth it. Don't know what to do with the angry testicles.
I need some help in terms of what to buy for my 1699 kr (190.93 US Dollar). There's a lot of cool new themes as well as star wars sets out now, and I'd like to her some opinions on people buying the bigger sets.
There's this hobby store where I live which saves sets over time and jacks up prizes over time for their "rarity" (for example, old star wars sets start at retail prize, then when they get retired they can get more than double the prize.).
My girlfriend at the time knew I very much was fond of the Milano, but wasnt sure how much it was worth, and bought it at twice its normal cost, but I can return it and switch it for sets that match at least over the cost of the set.
I like the set, but paying 190 usd for 665 pieces is a tad bit too crazy for me, which is why I'd rather want my monies worth than have a novelty item.
Open for any suggestions in terms of what to use it on. I've herd the new millenium falcon might be worth it.
Nah, man. She's totally capable and is constantly trying extra hard to prove herself and get out of the giant shadow her lineage casts over everything she does.
In the first episode of the show she almost doesn't get knighted because she's a princess, even though she earned it.
The spoiled brat that doesn't deserve his shit is Lance, the white one.
Old person who started the intergenerational shark conflict here
Didn't mean to get everyone so upset, just meant that "guy in a shark costume" is a cultural meme older than the 2015 Superb Owl
Just aping from lingonkart.
I never thought of her as a waitress though, I should build one.
No no no. Globlins are the little round ball guys.
Well, I'm just counting the red ones, I guess... In the show you only ever see red ones and they're EVERYWHERE.
In the game the difference between red and orange is like the difference between zerglings and banelings in SC2. That is, red ones just try to bite you while orange ones try to self-destruct next you and blow you up with them.
I want more red ones and so far as I know, they're only in the beastmaster's pussywagon and the fortrex.
>I've seen the DIY lightbox setups but I just don't have that much space.
You don't need it, this is my setup for shooting minifigs and small stuff. There's another desk lamp off to the right.
Since I mentioned it just earlier, I have about 74 virtual figure MOCs not counting the reverse-engineered ones, of which there are about four. This is also counting males, of which there are about three or so.
So counting only girls I have about 71 MOCs? I hope I'm being accurate. Oh well. I probably got it wrong.
>how to properly insert the battle droid into the turret of an AAT
Surprisingly, there wasn't all that much in the movie to turn into a Lego set. At least not cheap ones.
I am hoping for a microfighter version of the transport with a generic stormtrooper as the pilot, though.
I'm sure he wouldn't mind being mashed into a pulp or to have his eyes gouged out and his elbows broken and to have his kneecaps split and his body burned away and his limbs all hacked and mangled.
Shit, now you've got me thinking. I could have pulled out some other parts.
Seems like microfighters and battle pack are all we get for small Star Wars sets nowadays.
With obligatory exploding action.
When danger reared it's ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled.
Best build. Also there is proof that next Ninjago figure will be Clause!
Just got out of the Lego store...
Bought the last 4 Nexo Knights sets, including the fortrex.
I've spent 440$ on Lego, not including tax in a WEEK. I'll be letting my wallet cool off till more nexo stuff comes out this summer...
So the pigs (sorry, don't know anything about AB) have regular minifig arms, but the birds' arms seem to have a different connection. What size is their arm connection?
Tried to make a better turret for the transporter.
Redid the cockpit / body section of my Kylo Ren midi scale shuttle after putting together the FO Snowspeeder microfighter and getting a better idea of the scale of small figures and what bricks to use.
I'm not convinced the back is good (not that it is visible here) and the top feels too smooth, but it's a step up.
Dude, it´s not worth it. 3€ per magazine, that´s a CMF right there and those you could always sell for the same amount again. These magazines use fairly common pieces all the time, just get some by the pound lot for the same price as your subscription or however you imagine this going to work and you have a better deal if you just want random parts. The figures can always be bricklinked for a little more in the 2 cases in two years now where a figure was rare enough to warrant getting the magazine.
Toolbox Caddy made from Robin set.
This is it. I own it all, now.
Basking time is over.
Building time is now.
>tfw just bought some lego sets after not buying any for ages
My verdict is: mixel joints are great oh lordy and stud shooters are why
Yeah, I hate how that shit goes everywhere, too.
My kid and I cleared all the furniture out of the corner of a room, built a target, gathered as many little studs as we could find and spent the better part of a couple hours shooting off a giant pile of ammo at the target. Since then, I still find studs randomly around my house. They're fucking everywhere.
I wanted to make a Star Wars style speeder bike from the small amount of parts I had to hand.
Okay anons I need help.
Do I get the First Order Transporter (really keen on getting) or Poe's X-Wing and a battlepack (not so keen but wouldn't say no)?
They both come to around the same price and money isn't an issue so...
I'm considering buying a bunch of Star Wars: The Force Awakens sets, as much as a modest budget and my conscience will allow. Planning on picking up a couple of battle packs and avoiding Poe's X-Wing, do any of you fine folks have recommendations for what else to get? I was considering buying the new Falcon as I don't own one yet (save for the midi-scale one) but it seems to be in low supply.
If I can scrape up the money (and my Permanent Roommate lets me) I plan to get the Falcon and mod it to make a custom YT. I'm thinking about rebuilding the Tydirium cockpit and jamming it in between the Falcon's mandibles.
There's just something about Uglies that I like. I'm a weirdo.
>What size is their arm connection?
My guess is it's a normal arm joint... These nexo knight scurriers have fun-sized arms but the joint is totally compatible with a normal minifig(pic related)
Anyone here in Canada? I need some Lego money so I'll suck your dicks or I'll even cuddle, if that's your thing.
The socket is made of material so thin that the plastic just started to fail when I pulled the arm out...
I don't imagine the pigs will have this problem, but the yellow bird in that pic might have some trouble if you pop his arms out too many times.
Having fun with the horse. Wanted it slimmer, haven't figured out how to put weapon storage back on though
Well, there are a couple that I used to use, but I've got them all set up to forward straight to my main email.
Of course, gmail does a pretty good job with spam detection, so... it's kind of a moot point. I'm mostly just paranoid, that's all.
I like the look of all of them and am a minifig collector, primarily.
$10 for a minifig and some parts is not overpriced to me. I have no plans for buying any of the NEXO sets, becuase although they're pretty cool they don't appeal enough to me to drop money on them.
Lavaria, Robin, and Macy are easily the greatest. Robin is okay, Clay is okay. Beastmaster is ass and I'm not buying him.
I'm one of those guys who really just displays the LEGO he owns.
>bought all the ultimate
Maybe it's because he has money to spend after he got a nice job, after he graduated from school, where he actually learned something, and could use correct grammar.
>The minifigs with a handfull bricks are 7$.
Yeah but I want the stand and the alternate looks, too.
$10 is pretty cheap for a minifig with some bricks.
I'm going to be spending upwards of $10 - 13 on both new Iron Men and Captain Marvel / Carol Danvers later this month anyways, and they're just figs. Contemplating Old Han for $14, definitely getting Rey for ~$6.50. $10 for a minifig and extra bricks to me is perfectly fine and a pretty good deal.
>looking for photos of the new star destroyer from the force awakens
>come across this
No thanks I would rather get a in box UCS falcon.
WHERE IS PURPLE HAWKGUY
LEGO HAS NEVER MADE A PURPLE HAWKGUY MINIFIG AND I WANT HIM NOW
>No thanks I would rather get a in box UCS falcon.
You're going to be looking at triple to quadruple that for a UCS Falcon, but I share the sentiment. Buying a MOC for that much is a bad idea.
>cute twilek minifig that was only in an expensive set is coming in a microfighter
Monster and Knight waifu get!
Found Liquid 3PO and didn't know Brick Warriors does weapon packs.
Snagged one that's just Gears of War Weapons.
>grey. how interesting anon
Diss nigga neva seen star wars.
Honestly Executor is a different shade of whatever than the regular Star Destroyers, but LEGO doesn't make bricks in that shade
I mean it would look like ass in blue, dark blue, dark grey, or black.
Dark grey is probably the only passable color, but then the inside "city" would have to be in the only darker color, black, and you couldn't notice the details
I have enough trouble modifying things that are trying to go at angles
Inevitably there's something that isn't attached, and instead of simply excluding that particular part it just makes me unable to rotate my entire assembly
I just spent like 15 minutes trying to find what was wrong with my Kylo Ren shuttle wings and it was a single 1x2 flat plate stopping the entire thing from moving
and your licensed Star Wars pandering is no different?
I hate when that happens. My current plan is to make all the roof panels and such hidden and just try to move the rooms over bit by bit. Should be easy since both are edited from the official falcon sets.
a-aber Aubel, die Seite von dir kannte ich gar nicht...
ok, doch, aber doch nicht mit Ken / deinem Vater...
Dark gray plating with a city of black mixed with some dark blue might be ok.
It doesn't really matter though, the SSD looks completely light and dark gray throughout the battle of endor.
Yeah, grabbing things into a group and then hiding them to build other stuff is really useful.
I've never really designed anything in LDD over 500 pieces, ship-wise. Even at my big part counts, it's because of a lot of plates. That SSD was probably 500 - 600 pieces but there are a ton of plates and small bricks.
This guy is about 265 right now, which has me pretty hype. I'm still not satisfied.
It's a pretty hard thing to try and design right, yeah. LEGO went with light grey for the UCS one, so I just rolled with it. I think for detail it was probably the easiest, light grey versus dark grey was much easier to contrast than black / blue / dark grey.
I'll probably revisit it when I'm done with my KR Shuttle. The guy who put it together told me he had to make some modifications in order to keep it sturdy and swooshable, which I definitely knew he would have to do given I made it in LDD and I think the entire thing is plates and really stupid connections.
I may need to think of another way to do this.
Yeah I am just trying to transplant the chairs and dejark table into a more recent variation which an exterior I like more. Moving it into pic related is a bitch because the new version is a bit larger,
considered changing out the stinger for a magnet too
Just sent you an email!
I am also in Minnesota.
Hey everyone. I finally decided to cave in after much convincing from my fiancee and got the ghostbuster firehouse. Look forward to putting it together with her tomorrow. Although, I honestly just like watching her do it.
Also, my bank called me to make sure my Lego Store purchase wasn't credit card fraud.
Gave up on moving the interior so insted I started to mod mine to have some new turrets but now I think it looks a bit bulky. May change the turrets back to the ones on the left.
Anyone else get this little free dude with their Christmas orders?
I was pretty surprised as they didn't mention adding him to the order load at any point.
Just in there with a little card saying to enjoy my free gift.
guy who said brickwarriors is pretty boss last time someone asked here
between the last time i bought them, and now (they have wave three out) i think they changed their production a bit
ALOT more of the bags had black pieces, more of the weapons came in dark grey instead of black, so that was good. but they completely removed the "random" color element
every single legion was black, alot of the people with colors, came in either black, or a single choice in color now
for example, the legion and ogre i got, both of their armors came in purple, dark red, black, and i think dark green
literally the only thing in their bags now is black armor.
its still good, and nice if you want certain things they have in the bag, but its definitely a step forward, and another back, since im not a fan of their black plastic
like he said though, TRU has them, if they arnt near the megablocks, they might have them near cmfs/blind bags in the same area. mine keeps it at the main counter since they're just as easily stolen
Go fuck yourself nigger
Jup. Just change his pants to black to get it right.
LEGO didn't know what pants are under the table here.
I don't think TRUs here in Canada get them but I order direct from their site anyway, got my second one due sometime next week.
>first in-show nexo power that actually does something
Could this be a look at Ultimate Axl?
gonna link this in the MB, and Lego threads, since I'm not sure if it's been shared before.
not too expensive, and the easiest way to have a toy "you". I know I'm gonna have one made

Dude, marry that girl!
Also what do you guys think of pic related? Do you ever buy sets that are 4x their original price?
I'm wondering if I should just bricklink the necessary pieces for the classic DeLorean.
I dont buy overpriced sets.
Its still mostly normal bricks. -> bricklinks & LDD
Can buy minis seperatly or if i really want them customized from other parts.
But im a cheap legotard, so its just my opinion.
Hör auf zu scheißschreiben und frag die lieber ob Figuren gleichzeitig Sturmtruppen Helme und Nexo Knights Schulter Panzerungen tragen können. Man würde meinen das die Frage schnell beantwortet werden würde wegen dem momentanen Shilling aber nein.
I got a Winter Soldier while ordering in December.
I think I heard of them doing this for multiple years now. They just throw the overproduced lego.com gift polybags of the entire year into christmas orders and don´t tell anybody about it on the site to make it a surprise.
Bricklink the bits for a better DeLorean build (heaps of people have modified that one to look much nicer) and then get the minifigures from Dimensions because they look much better too.
Even with the ridiculous Dimensions prices I still think you'd save money.
Wow. Just, WOW.
I'm pretty new to /toy/, only just recently getting back into Lego and all... And the board culture here keeps blowing me away. I'm so used to thinking of 4Chan as a whole being MEAN. I don't think any of the half dozen boards I normally frequent would have helped that guy out like that without making fun of him or at LEAST calling him names but here he gets HELP.
This board is great.
YOU'RE great, anon. Don't change.
Wenn du auf englisch fragen würdest, würdest du eine antwor6t bekommen
>Passive aggressively asking in not-English.
Sure, I'll post pictures of stormtrooper helmets over nexo armor, just send me any helmet you'd like that done with. I've been trying real hard to contain my contempt for Star Wars since I started reading the /lg/ threads only a few days ago but this is as good a time as any to say it.
I don't like Star Wars. I love sci-fi and think Star Wars is a pretty shit attempt at it. I also am morally opposed to Disney and avoid giving them money if I can, so when they bought the Star Wars franchise I was EVEN less interested in buying Star Wars Lego.
How's that for "shilling"?
Wow, it went up that much? Glad I picked one up on clearance from the LEGO store.
>I don't like Star Wars. I love sci-fi and think Star Wars is a pretty shit attempt at it.
>I also am morally opposed to Disney
/toy/ in general is more of a real hobby board. As much as I like video games, film, music, those boards are filled with genuine plebs and children that muck up the board.
Not cool ;__;
I'm probably going into my nearby LEGO store today, with $500 in hand. What should I buy?
It is sort of a toss-up between the Ghostbusters Firehouse and a handful of smaller sets, or the Modular bank, and a handful of medium sets.
Too many quirky Dr who faggots in this thread desu
>Falling for bait
Spotted person killing the thread.
Stick looks nice, wish there were smaller parts than the 1x2 plates.
I think two of this part http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=98834&in=S
would be good for the shield, connected with a Brickarms U clip if a bit big. It will even be available in white with the new city police car.
>baiting on /toy/ any day
>actually having smug pepes on your HDD
Its in the lego magazines.
As far as i know its published in the EU.
Dont know if there are outside publisher
>those boards are filled with genuine plebs and children that muck up the board.
Never encountered too much problems there.
But it sounds more that you might be the problem.
I dont want to mock you, just the feeling that you have a certain expectation of users and dont accept others.
You must just filter more anon.
If you are a film fan, take the ghostbuster.
If you like diorama and everyday life, take the bank.
But to be honest i cant think of buy any of these big sets.
Only to recreate stories.
Finally gave me a reason to create an Ash with a orange transparent chainsaw.
Knights have nexo-animal totem powers (why not go full visionaries, could be cool for a console game and than they could make more animal brick sets.)
[spoiler]I loved the visionaries concept and show[/spoiler]
And Season 2 The knights form a knights of the roundtable sort and Jestro builds an anti roundtable.
I regret not getting into the collectibles series, at the time I thought it was a tad expensive
Same for lego movie sets they make great army builders
I dislike how majority people only seem to buy sw, shit is entry level at best and lack of appreciation or even conversation for older sets
Technic U-Joint pieces have no friction and are intended to act like real life U-Joints
If you built that thing IRL it'd have floppy doll legs.
There's no reason to use the LDD backgrounds. Taking a screenshot even with the brick grid in the way, will produce a picture of your MOC with a transparent background.
Your robot body has arms, but it seems the 1x2 slopes are being placed on two stacked 1x1 plates rather than to hold down the 1x1 ball joint pieces.
Despite the yellow, nearly the entire robot is grey! This is up to you to change or not change.
The hands seem strange due to your choice of parts, and you have to extend the handles of items, it seems.
This last one's just an opinion, but
Well, I would still like a pic now but it´s not worth pushing it because the idea is fairly obvious so somebody will post it sooner or later anyway.
The idea was giving the pearl dark grey Shadow troopers the nexo knight armor to bulk them up for a Dark Trooper. But the armor color is metallic silver, a shade too bright. Lego will probably take a few years until they recolor it that way and there are apprently 2 versions of the armor with either 2 or 4 studs on the back.
The ghostbuster house just came out so it will be on the shelf for a while. If you like the bank then consider getting the other modulars as well since they'll start retiring them soon.
wait, is this a Nexo Ash?
Nice idea and build.
>tfw your ideas compound faster than your available free time allows
Nexo knights are fucking great. Just picked up Ultimate Macy and the only beef I have with the set is the fucking visor won't stay down (probably due to the trans parts being polycarb vs ABS or something) but I can fix that with nail top coat.
I also turned her mace into a flail (since the default red nexo shield shows flails, not maces).
Also: I am a prolific minimecha/MFZ builder, and those 1x1 pyramid studs from Nexo have me salivating.
Pic sort of related.
