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...
Messing around with some Nexo Knights stuff. I'm trying to make a spear, but I'm divided. The idea is that the powers attach to the weapon and the sais would be replaced with something more fitting of the power.
>Incorporates the shield.
>But looks like a shovel from the side.
>Auxillary weapons attach poorly.
>Fits the weapons better
>Doesn't incorporate the shield.
>It's just a cog on a premade weapon, ya hack!
I've tried a few ways to mount the shield with the extra cog, but things just don't want to work for me.
Funny thing, I just figured it out. It's longer than the prefab spear and doesn't look like a shovel, to boot!
I went for a lego hunt today at a lot of thrift store but all i got was some megablocks, at first i was skeptical but then i had some fun with it.
Has anyone had any luck in thrift stores?
>Buying the figures doesn't unlock them for use in the game.
If there's a miniscule chance anyone else is collecting powers.
Infernox is a pretty cool figure. But I find that his build is kinda flimsy in areas. His horns and fingers fall off alot when I fiddle with him, and sometimes his head implodes due to all the hinges that allow for a minifig to be "captured" inside him.
King's Mech is pretty much universally loved here.
I personally really enjoy the Mecha Horse and the Lava Smasher.
Got a few nice cheap display cases at the Container Store for my figs.
The dimensions are kind of weird, but they're only ten bucks, so it evens out.
I agree with what this guy said except for the horse. The horse is shit. It's a motorcycle that transforms into a horse STATUE. Maybe it'd be a good set of you completely rebuilt the legs.
But the regular lego horses are also statues. Q nQ
>head is articulated
The thrift stores in town here are stalked on the regular by people I suspect of being Bricklinkers or some kind of reseller anyway. They're real dicks about it too, always trying to get in the back to see if any Lego is about to be put out, whining that production doesn't take the time to separate non-Lego pieces from the mixed bags... the main one looks like a creep too.
Only scored a couple modest mixed bags of Lego some years ago, some sweet MB finds though like pic related for 11 bucks.
This fucking thing better get made.
Either way it's inspired me to recreate the rooftop concert. Just gotta find some decent reference pics of the Apple studios building...
I used to work at a thrift store.
What happens, is people don't actually put things in the donation bins (I worked at the Salvation Army, so it might be different with smaller stores).
People just dump their donations outside the front door, which are then picked clean before the manager gets there.
The amount of times I pulled either a Transformer, Barbie or bag of Legos out of a bag were a grand total of... once.
Hi Lego Gen, it's my first time buying from Bricklink, and as I was checking out the store, I saw this on the shipping terms.
>Shipping and BrickLink fee, 4% of all brick that you buy, is not included. It will be included into shipping price.
Does that mean this fucker is making me pay for Bricklink's listing costs, or does this mean that Rbicklink actually charges you when you buy from their site?
1. Peter Pan
2. Captain Hook
3. Mr Incredible
14-18 The 5 main inside out characters
>tfw no official Lego violin bass
>tfw no official Lego casino
>tfw no official telecaster or country gentleman
>tfw no official Ringo custom drum set
Why do I even bother with this company??
I might get a few. I'm sure these will be super expensive in a year because normies love Shitney.
>no big fig Hulk Buster like the vidya
>...that isn't from china
My GDI Orca is nearing completion.
It'd be done if it weren't for the fact that some of the 'used' pieces from my Bricklink order had literal mold growing in them.
>tfw see this awesome custom set
>tfw nearly 400 AUD once shipping factored in
Shit, I could just have a great night out at a real strip club for that kinda cash.
yup, lego goes through a thread in about a day and a half though, so theres usually multiple "dead" threads at once either way
i presume the migration to this one happened early, so there wouldn't be this crap early one, and another new one
The name's what sold me. Foxy Blox. I love it.
But truth be told, it looks like a pretty simple build, not really worth the cash. It's just too bad minifig bikinis are so hard to come by, otherwise I'd just make my own.
Cool. But wouldnt it be better if you use the studs on the back?
Seeing this somehow makes me wanting to change the nexus knights into visionaries.
You could make theminto staffs perfectly
>The thrift stores in town here are stalked on the regular by people I suspect of being Bricklinkers or some kind of reseller anyway
I dunno, thrift stores seem to be stalked pretty regularly anyways it seems, at least around here...
Where I'd suspect the Bricklinkers and Resellers are at the Retail stores, considering entire swaths of Lego Sets will disappear off the shelves in a short amount of time.
>Does that mean this fucker is making me pay for Bricklink's listing costs, or does this mean that Rbicklink actually charges you when you buy from their site?
It means if you want to buy from that store, your total will be 4% higher than what it shows. If you don't want this, just don't buy from that store.
Every store is different. Some have a minimum order cost, some have a maximum number of unique lots (parts), some charge you extra if you order more than X lots.
It's well worth the price.
My friend paid almost $200 I think for it and he doesn't regret it.
>A table full of shitty board games for 2€ each
>one lone Heroica box
>it's taped shut and the seller looked at me angrily when I tried to open it
Even at a charity fleamarket they know Lego is hot shit, but no one in their right mind would buy one for that price without knowing if it has everything
Ok, but the doesn't mean the figs are shit.
You know what's shit? All those stupid Simpsons styled celebrity figures.
Yeah, as if I wanted a Simpsons version of Kid Rock.
Lego Simpsons are pure. They're love and life and yellow like Lego should be.
Also the newest season is actually pretty good which is refreshing.
>big bang theory meme are funny
>trust me I watch two and a half men
that show is hilarious though
So the Modular systems have officially had
So what's left? I had some ideas, anyone else thought of some interesting things?
>car park tower
Arcade and bowling alley would be awesome.
I'm working on a MOC Sushi restaurant, with like a ramen stand on one of the upper levels, and probably some living quarters/apartments on the second or third floor.
A modular library would be really cool.
Are you talking about the third one (Market Street) or whatever? Because that's the only one I can think of.
I'm not even sure why that one is considered a modular, because it has absolutely none of the aesthetics of any of the other modulars, and isn't even packaged under the same banner as any of the others, IIRC.
That makes sense, I suppose. It actually sort of looks like a hotel.
Cafe Corner and the Green Grocer are two of the coolest looking Modulars as far as exterior, but the insides are just so barren and plain...
I like the piece choices, I never liked the cmf ones. I always wanted to put one together in black, but staying far away from Bricklink projects for a long while.
Looks so comfy. Personally I would just keep the vignette for its own humble display and make a grand Moc with the rest.
Just capped a few things while playing the nexo knights game... First:
Hahaha Nexo knitghs have so many cool scenes I cant stop laughing.
>Everyone want to help a friend
>Lance is there just chiling with ladies.
The game ends rather abruptly at the end of the third area with a "coming soon" video. I guess this shows Jestro's volcano fortress that will be coming out this summer.
And here's some of the powers that either aren't in the game yet or just haven't had their codes released yet.
I wonder how they'll do ultimate Axel. They can't really just make the armor trans-orange because it would look terrible with the glued minifig torso. Speaking of which, I don't think Lego has ever done minifig torso in trans, so that's not happening either
Macy = headstrong female, not your princess
Lance = the narcistic star
Axl = the hungry brute
Aaron = the funny guy
clay = hero knight
ava = the nerd girl
robin = novize but technic genius
They are rather trope characters, but for a all ages show its good and gives the author enough room to make nice episodes.
I would consider it a show, you can see and show it your kids.
That would be this thing seen in the background of this photo.
I really don't know what colors should pick for this thing
I've been working on a few modular ideas in LDD.
And by "working on", I mean I roughly map out their layout and came up with some basic ideas, then forgot about them.
I feel like sharing them, so here they are;
Two stories. On the ground is the arcade, which featuring a number of different gaming machines. Instead of trying to come up with generic game titles/screens or license existing games, the idea was to turn old Lego sets into games. For example a 'Slizer' or 'Bionicle' beat-em-up, a 'Rock-Raiders' or 'Aquazone' pin-ball and a 'Lego Racer' Racing game. There would also be a counter with prizes mounted on the wall.
Behind the arcade would be an external set of stairs that leads to the first floor, a studio apartment. The apartment would be done up to look like a stereo-typical geek/gamer apartment, there would be posters for video games and a couple of different game consoles and controllers hooked up to a big screen TV.
It would come with an arcade employee and a number of different gamers of various ages and genders.
Two stories. Ground floor is divided between a waiting room with chairs for patients, a fish tank for decor and a water cooler, and a reception area consisting of a desk, computer, coffee machine and filing cabinets.
Up stairs, is a hall way and two consultation rooms. Both rooms are pretty much the same and contain a desk/computer, a bed for patients to lie down on, one of those skeleton display thing and skylights in the roof. There would be two stairs leading to this floor, a patients stairs coming from the waiting room and a doctors stairs coming from reception.
Would come with 2 doctors, male and female, a nurse/receptionist, an adult patient and a child patient with their concerned mother.
Mostly just that, a large open garage with a car lift, work bench and selection of tool as well as a number of special printed tiles made to look like photos/calendars/posters of cars.. There would also be an office, with some chairs and a desk/computer.
Would come with 2 mechanic, an assistant/office/admin, a customer and their car.
Three stories. Ground floor consists of a reception area and a backroom. There would be a back door that leads into said back room so that celebrity guests wouldn't have to use the main/front door. The first floor be a green room/radio boss' office. Third floor would be the recording studio.
The set would come with a DJ, a producer/boss, a receptionist/assistant, a celebrity and a fan.
A single story sushi place on a 16x32 plate. Has a counter which displays the sushi choices, a fridge, chairs and tables. Would come with a chef and two dinners.
A single story restaurant on a 16x32 plate. Has a grill behind a counter with seats. Would come with a chef and two dinners.
"Bob's Burgers" restaurant from the cartoon Bob's Burgers. Comes with the Belcher family and Teddy.
And something a bit different
A little (32x32) inner-city park/playground for kids that fits between buildings. Has a sidewalk, stone fence, monkey bars, see-saws and sandpit.
Comes with two mothers, three children, a bucket and spade and a couple of different coloured statuette.
>Modular Memorial Park.
A little (32x32) inner-city memorial park. Has a sidewalk, a brick fence with large arch entry way, a canon and two statues (fire fighter and police officer), two benches and a floor garden.
Would come with a gardener, a random citizen and an old man.
Also I want to get another Pet Shop, build the townhouse/apartment as normal (maby make a few changes to the decor) and turn the Pet Shop into a Newsagents.
I'm thinking about ripping apart my 70404 King's Castle to build a hanger for Star Wars. I'm looking at it and it's really difficult, because it's such a nice looking castle...
I like it because it looks so, how to put it, self contained. most Police Stations remind me of just a facade.
Is that the latest one? I want at least one of each for lego; Police station, Castle and Pirate ship/Fortress. I've been looking at the Forest Men's hideout from like 1989, it looks friggin sweet. I prefer the old Castle/Pirate stuff a little better than the more current ones, though the minifigs look like they've improved a lot.
Once I get a hundred yuros I might, actually.
I have my bar at five:
1st bar fills in 3 minutes
2nd bar fills in 15 minutes
3rd bar fills in 45 minutes
4th bar in 4 hours
5th bar in 12 hours.
It's kinda dumb, especially without a PTW method of recharging it instantly. Bar 1 should refill in ten seconds and the others should move down a tier (2nd bar in 3 min, and so on). The lengthened bar is used to level the powers up, but when they recharge so slowly, what's the point?
This guy again. Since we're kind of on the topic of MOC Modulars, I figured I'd show the first floor of my Sushi Bar Modular.
I started working on it months ago, and kind of put it aside without ever really finishing the interior, or ever really getting to the two top floors....
There was going to be a lot more exterior detail that I never really got around to. Going to be some foliage and plants in the fenced area. Or at least something to give the exterior a bit more detail.
Kind of wanted to keep it relatively in line with the existing modulars. Tried to do some interesting uneven brick looking stuff toward the bottom of the building here on the back.
Lots of dust to show that I haven't really worked on it in months....but an interior shot through the front doors.
And here's a little shot of some if the interior stuff. Mostly just the sushi "bar", though the floor tiling isn't finished at all, nor are any of the chairs or anything in here. There's a little broom closet and a few other details on the other side of the building, but it isn't super interesting to look at right now.
Doesn't work. You need to snap the shield BEFORE it starts loading; this uses a generic code which doesn't register in the game.
> huge chunk is VEHICLES
I just wanted a batcave
>Man the new sushi print from friends sets will be perfect for this!
I was thinking that too. I literally cannot believe that a LEGO sushi roll exists. That is so neat.
>I really love your design!
Thanks! I still have a lot of work, but I am pretty happy with the core design.
>Sky Pirate "base" is just a shitty little helipad
Why is this allowed?
For the anon who wanted a Visionaries staff for the Nexo Knights. I guess you could also use a pair of the 1x1x3 bricks with the side peg, but this is a bit lighter and cleaner.
How would this look like?
>Everyone's talking about the new batcave
>Nobody mentions this one.
Now that it's retired, any of you dorks unhappy that you missed out on Bane?
Not bad. Pretty simple and clean, but also a tad tall. Perhaps a shorter rod would be appropriate, unless this is the idea.
I can't wait for that nameplate to be used out of context.
The purple Dragoon with her spear is good enough for me.
The flamming tonardo dont work?
Netherless i compiled it into my new chart.
Is that an homage to Vladek's standard on one of the red shields?
I love all the little callbacks to other castle themes in Nexo Knights. Some that aren't even necessarily on purpose - e.g. Aaron has the Wolfpack emblem ad his coat of arms. However, he is also the 'green knight' and one of his Ultimate nexo powers is a banana weapon. The last 'green knight' we had was Rascus, whose coat of arms was a monkey.
Fire Tornado does not work.
First blank is Scorpion Sting.
Second is Piranha Bite.
Third is Sea Dragon.
Also, try to group the quest-related powers together.
>First blank is
Had a handfull, but couldnt find the doubles for these three.
>Also, try to group the quest-related powers together.
i just tried to group colors and last row the web and ad-promos without proper color.
This may be a stupid question, but if someone from say, the Netherlands is selling something on Bricklink and I want to buy it using paypal, do I need to do any currency related shit? Like would I need to exchange my American dollars for whatever they pay with, or will Paypal take care of that itself?
I'm considering buying a few Star Wars sets, haven't gotten myself Lego for years. Can any anons with them give me the yea or nea?
Death Star final duel
Carbon freezing chamber
Millennium Falcon (75105 version)
Got a new Lance, some other parts I needed and Normal!Aaron(As opposed to Ultimate Aaron).
The same store had the Ultimate Macy figure loose for $6, but I figured it would be worth getting her extra stuff in the set.
Nice-ish sets. I like the figures, but I don't think it's worth what they're asking for it, at least for me. Maybe I'm just bitter than I can't find a place to display it.
>Carbon Freezing Chamber
It was a fun build. Comes with Boba Fett for cheap-ish. I like it.
Another fun build. Apparently Jawas are pretty rare as minifigs, but I just wanted a new C3-P0 and the pod looks pretty nice, at least compared to what normally goes for an escape pod with legos.
I fucking loved it until I dropped it. God damn it why did I have to do it. Great version of the Falcon, though if you like OT better than Force Awakens, the previous set was pretty much the same except with OT figures.
rd floor storage with creepy animatronic figs
Where can I find the sword pieces that come with ultimate clay on bricklink? The trans-blue ones? (also, how in the fuck have those sets been out this long and there STILL isnt a list of their parts on there yet?)
I de-Republiced my Z-95 and made a rebel/civillian version. I mostly just stripped the burgundy parts. It still doesn't look like the classic EU design but I may fool around with it more.
Depends on the store. I made two Paypal orders from two separate BL stores in Germany last month, and while the first automatically converted the bill to USD, the second made me pay in Euros.
Check the store's terms to see what payments they accept.
Not sure. I remember back in the say converting Darth Vader's Tie Fighter into a Tie Interceptor and being super proud of that.
I don't know of a EU Tie that hasn't been done. Even the Tie/D has been made. Recently.
Maybe it's because most of the pictures I post are taken "live", so there isn't as much invested in them?
It always makes me happy to see a Lego Quest picture show up here. Or anywhere on 4chan.
The Mercedes-Benz Arocs uses 30 of them to make the front out of Technic and system parts.
As far as I can tell ALL the solid color armors have 4 studs on the back. Two two-color armors only have 2 studs.
Also, some people were asking if there's variation to the prints on the minifigs. No.
Has anybody here gotten the First Order TIE Fighter SF?
I'd give my thoughts on it if somebody here already hasn't.
I got it, its alright, if you dont have the 2012 one I'd recommend it, I'm not even a Imp fan and I found my self with 3 TIE variants now, Interceptor from the 2012 kit, the Fury, and SF. I'm probably gonna get the Advanced/x2 now because this one looks too good to pass up
>Anyone ever tried a Clawcraft?
Which, because I've got the Droid Quadfighter...
They look droidy sure enough, although they're a little small for my liking.
Where do they shoot from? Where are the engines?
I think I would extend the fuselage a little, or maybe add some greebling in the center.
That's just the Micro Space versions, I kinda already posted my Mini-fig scale model pic elsewhere...
>It's like complaining about how Truman beat Dewey.
What is the technical difference between "sold out" and "retired"?
I've been working on Space Police III-ish things lately, here's a pair of trucks. Just finished the green one today.
The yellow sith has arrived to cleanse the earth of the fleshie scum! To force them out of their bombed out resistance base!
>inb4 fleshie head troopers
I didn't have enough solid black heads and yellow looks bad on troops ok?
This thing is fucking awesome. How am I going to choose between this and Nexo Knights?
I'm really liking this one.
Is there a difference between sold out being in red or orange text? What's the point if they already have an "out of stock will ship ____" tag?
>Have minifig series 17 leaked yet?
Not technically, but some of the hair molds for the wave have leaked.
It's a Disney CMF line with normal (non-Simpsons) heads. So far we've seen the hair pieces for Ursula, Peter Pan, and two others I forget about.
>It's a Disney CMF line
thanks for the info man
look like I'll be skipping another wave
>I see your sausage is as big as mine. Now le3t's see how you...handle it.
What, you didn't know that? Psshhh.
>a Sasuage just barely fits in Lightsaber Handle
Can confirm, but a stud w/hole makes the connection a lot more snug and doesn't look terribly awful.
>Shame it doesnt come in trans.......or does it?
Nope. Dark orange, red, reddish brown, and yellow, unless you happen to get lucky sometime and find a prototype piece in a trans color.
Pretty cute.... for a fleshie...
Doing a service to the Empire, friend.
So guys, my Ghostbusters HQ will be coming soon. I want to take some pics of it and set ups as they ghost bust the bicycle shop or something.
I want to go full autism and set up some paper backgrounds and paint them.
I just worry I'll drop the project because of ADD DHD DD A.D.
>I want to go full autism and set up some paper backgrounds and paint them.
You could always print out a city background.
Here's a haul I found today for $15AUD
The bowl is what I'm keeping because I pretty much only use technic these days and the rest I'm giving to my cousin's kids. Already sorted out all the non-lego and this is what's left.
Whoever owned this must be the same age as me because it's all from the same sets that I bought when I was a kid.
Looks like you have some of the parts for this:
I'd try to reconstitute that before giving the rest of the stuff away. Might be a nice thing to have.
Hey thanks, I was going to find out what those parts were for, it didn't come with any instructions for it.
I kept most of the technic from that bag because I don't have much in the way of steering parts but I'm giving them the big wheels because they'll enjoy them more than me. I might make my own version using the parts though.
>been following the modular buildings line for a few years
>missed out on a couple of sets
>go on bricklink to find out how much people are selling them for secondhand
jesus christ, I should never miss out on one ever again, even though they've been steadily increasing the price on each new set
When is the next wave of nexo knights supposed to be released or at least maybe have pics leaked? I heard summer but that's a wide gap
I don't own a hotdog suit so I can't actually try it out but hopefully this can give you a good idea. Only printed on one side.
I never did find one and I looked goddamn everywhere
A clip-on light and a three-way bulb will run you about $10 from Home Depot. That with your normal lamp adding fill light can get you better pictures. I have some more powerful lights since I make online videos.
So I picked up two of these at a Target and, the build is meh and Star Wars overrated but they're a pretty amazing parts pack.
4x 1x4 orange tile
4x 2x4 black wing piece, two pairs
8x black antenna
4x 1x1 round black brick
some bits with clips on them
10/10 would buy again
Oh dear. Volume is often a thing for these stores, especially in Australia. I'm no Lego rep, but I did used to work for a company that had a similar relationship with smaller stores; chains and big stores get better treatment due to their volume, so don't take my word as law.
Welp I built Moltors smasher and the mecha horse and the horse was as disappointing as I expected it to be. Not really into the look of it and don't like the transforming aspect. Just purchased it for completeness sake.
Moltor's smasher on the other hand is great. The minifig is cool with those additional hands, shoulderpads and has a cool face print. The build was much more fun. It's less technic based than the horse and the mechanism when you roll it is smooth and super cool. When you roll it over wood it even sounds like a heavy duty kinda shitty diesel engine which is pretty fitting for the vehicle. Kings mech and jestros chariot are my favorites in this line so far and moltor's smasher is right up there with them. Wish there would be an ultimate moltor but I don't think they're doing one.
>and the horse was as disappointing as I expected it to be
I bought that tonight on a whim and holy shit it sucks. It sucks as a horse and it sucks as a bike, it's just ass.
But it's a good parts pack so I'm not really complaining.
Two bad bitches. Lavaria's awesome. Might get one other set from this line, then I'll be done. Not sure what to get though
i was playing with some of mine and stumbled across a plot line from bat v supe that i'd like see
any DC fags know if this happened?
I'm actually a bit miffed that the Lavaria figure doesn't unlock her for play in the game. Bit of a bummer.
I know it works on Smart devices; any idea if they're planning a 3DS release that uses the camera and maybe has a better fighting system since half the time my hand covers up whatever the hell is going on?
I should browse the custom section more often, there's some pretty interesting shit that comes up.
I've been looking to get back into Lego after being out of the game for a few years.
That's a bit untrue, I have bought a set or two each year for the last maybe 8 years, but haven't been super into the hobby since then.
What's the best way to attain a massive collection so I can build my own town, other than the obvious of buying a bunch of town sets? My [spoiler]girlfriend[/spoiler] and I have set our sights on constructing our own Lego Island.
>I should browse the custom section more often, there's some pretty interesting shit that comes up.
Thanks, I'm going to have nightmares.
Buy bulk lots off ebay or your local buy/swap/sell website. And make sure you always wash 2nd hand parts throughly. Or if money is no object to you just go out and buy a fuckload of sets that are being discounted from stores.
i live in the suburbs of chicago. there are 5 lego stores i can go to, in 1 day.
idk how far apart the NY, CA, and TX stores are, but a day in chicagoland would give you a good pick-a-brick option
last time i went was dec 1
saw the pick-a-model but wasn't interested. still got $9 of turntables though.
i guess lego is banking on their bits of plastic being more valuable than most currencies.
>start designing a Lego TIE bomber in LDD based on the TIE Advanced Prototype design
>google "Lego TIE Bomber" to look at the old one
>dozens of MOCs that would probably look a lot better than what I'm trying to do
Make sure to get some Friends sets or look up the instructions and replace the parts with non-pink pieces via Bricklink.
>Watch Clone Wars for the first time
>There are 6 sets with the Interceptor
>Not one is Mace Windu's bitchin purple one
>The wing piece doesn't even exist in purple
This is criminal.
Not fully sure, but I did catch a ban the other day because I was drunk and called a poster some things while defending the original ghostbusters. Got the bog standard bullshit ban notice "hur dur, keep da trolls on /b/ and da everything else on /pol/". Also plenty of posters in these threads can be pretty thin skinned as well (cue the replies of "NOOOO, POLITICS!" Get over it, this is all im going to say on this matter, I swear.)
Day you cant call someone a faggot on 4chan of all places, even in a fun ribbing sort of way, is the day this place has fully become reddit. and that day has passed a thousand times over.
Soon, Hiroshi-moot is going to have to add a trigger warning option for posting so janitors dont spill all their hotpockets.
I kid, I kid.
I would say get a bunch of random part lots on ebay by color, buy a few of those boxes of randoms from stores, then buy a few big sets.
Also, get the GF hooked early on. Older she is and more deprived of creativity from a young age the better (my GF is 54. She never had lego, I got her hooked right after force friday and she so far has spent like close to 8-10k on lego since then. Shits cash. Modulars everywhere, her only current concern is lack of space, but im getting her used to the ideas of shelves everywhere.)
I got a warning after proving the brickluminati are real. Pretty possed off.
Does anyone know of any cheap lighting set ups? Double VIP points if they can change colors.
not color changing, but theres a chink on bricklink who sells lighting kits and bricks, direct from chinaland, for pretty cheap (unless you buy one of his "official" kits, like his palace cinema kit. $100 funbux, while his regular plain old LED plates goes for like $4. His street lamps go for about $7.)
There's a weekend indoor flea market near me with a little toy shop that sells the newer lego sets for regular price. It's possible to get in touch with them, but be ready to put up a lot of real estate to make the volume.
Poe's polybag instructions were too hard
i built it wrong
Friends who use Bricklink, do you ever get tracking/insurance on items even if it's in the same State/Country/City? I feel like I should get it, but at the same time it's kind of a waste because it's just local.
sorted and organized all my old legos (5-6,000 pieces-ish) and bought the ultra agents copter, the nexo knights chaos chariot, and the elves crystal hollow, all sets selected on the bitchin'-ness of their pieces
the decade-long hiatus is over, time to get back into lego
Reeeeeeallly regretting buying from the Lego Shop.
A set I ordered over a week ago now STILL hasn't actually been shipped. It's "shipment tendered", which basically translates to "if you don't mind, we'd really appreciate it if you could put this on your plane for us, if you're not too busy, that is".
Do they just still have a massive backlog of Christmas deliveries or something? Has anyone else gotten a Lego Shop delivery recently? Did it take longer than usual?
I ordered some NEXO Knights the night they went up and it took a little over a week to arrive. That's par for the course outside of the holiday season, when it goes much faster.
I don't know what you ordered, is it possible it was something that was backordered? There's quite a few things that are orderable but say "not shipping until January 15" or some such.
All these 2016 sets. So close, and yet so far away.
And it's probably sideways. I'm shitposting on the go, sue me
>jokingly refer to her as Lava Waifu a couple threads ago
>now everyone's obsessed with her
D-did I create a monster?
Only reason I like Lavaria is I'm planning on using my castle pieces to build a kickass Elder Scrolls MOC, and she's a perfect Flame Atronach.
After checking for two weeks, I finally got my hands on an FO battlepack. Going back to the store tomorrow to pick up the last one.
Too the Anon who built this, could I possibly get a couple more shots of it from back and both sides? Id like to try and build it myself.
I dunno. I put in an order over last weekend, and it shipped on Monday. Supposedly will be here Thursday, but they sent it via FedEx, so I am expecting to have to chase it down to one of the FedEx buildings...
>Tfw I got 2 FO battlepacks to mount the guns on my transporter and make a heavy gunboat
>Now I won't be able to pick it up with one hand until the parts come to extend it
Good sets, both of them
>wait for the mail for the whole day
>get a Black Series 5 inch Sand Trooper instead of more lego
I don't know what to feel
Actually, I haven't done much original building yet. I might still complete this and see how much the bricks would cost on bricklink though. I just can't find the large dish pieces in the LDD library that they used for the cockpit windscreen.
It the name isued in poland for the Lego magazin and its mini or kit.
A polish builder posted it and from time to time the new kit inside, so it stuck as the name.
I'm still having a hard time finding anything about this thing on Google... Any suggestions? I'm trying to decide if I'd want to import one of these but I can't seem to find anything about it.
So here she finally is, my Falleen Jedi to lead the rebels in my battle set up.
Hera, from Rebels.
Anakin's hair from one of his clone wars sets, Ackbar's torso from the A-Wing set. A snowtrooper's hands. Kanan's legs. Gold hilts from my bro here on /toy/, and pink blades from Sebulba's Podracer from the planet series.
>It is the name used
Here an interesting report onthe Lego magazines. What was valid for chima must be for Nexo (Chima changes to Nexo).
Here in Germany its Blue Ocean AG that sell them. And they announced it in the last Chima issue (I will miss it) but dont mention it on their page or have the series site up.
Hope this and the links help you so far.
Here are the amassed forces.
20 Stormtroopers, 4 Shadow Troopers, a uniformed Sergeant, a probe droid, and the Nikto Inquisitor.
16 Troopers, 2 plainclothes scouts, and the Falleen Jedi.
The imperials have more uniform arms, with the appropriate mix of heavy weapons and blaster rifles. Our Sergeant only carries a pistol with his dress uniform, as the overwhelming display of force present on our yet-unnamed planet was expected to deter any attack. The Inquisitor is armed with his lightsaber, of the same design as the other Inquisitors though he prefers a one-bladed style coupled with the over-charged blaster he carries.
The rebels have a mish-mash of weapons, several armed only with blasters, but they also have two Light Repeating Blasters and a heavy sniper rifle. Our resident Falleen Jedi wields two lightsabers, with flashy Aurodium hilts and eye-catching pink blades in addition to her natural Falleen Pheromones. An expert at deflecting blaster fire, she purposefully makes herself the primary target in battle, to spare her accompanying troops as much as she can.
I scanned my magazin. Sorry its in german.
The price is Ok.
3,50€ you get a comic story plus around 5 riddle and play pages and a minifig or some bricks.
The quality is rather good and i think most magazines are about 3,00 € so its a fair price here.
