Went with the white stripes, and tried changing the roof to white too. Not sure how I feel about this, might switch back to grey.

Also I made a small flatcar to hold some trees in. Besides the steam engine and box car I already have, should I add one more thing to it?

>>
>>4538883
In my humble opinion, you need the roof to pop a little less, maybe black of dark grey, avin the colors be less of a structural presence, putting a little bit of gold, could warm up everything a little bit, making more Christmassy.

They should go back to the old style where each set provides a section of wall or such, and you connect them as you collect them into a big castle.

I just found http://lego.wikia.com/wiki/7126_Battle_Droid_Carrier sitting on a shelf behind some other stuff, forgotten. It's missing a few parts, and the six normal battle droids are gone, but the pilot is there. I have no idea where the parts went or where the droids are, and I don't even remember buying old Star Wars sets. I thought I only started this year. But I also recently found a red lightsaber with chrome handle and a Qui-Gon with yellow face, missing his hair and lightsaber. So... Apparently I got at least two sets back in the day.
>>
>>4539067
God I hope they do. My best guess is that now that the Hobbit/LotR series are on their last waves, when they restart the castle line again they will be more creative as they wont see it as a competitor for the movie lines.

Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated was pretty cool, but this new Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! series just sounds (and especially LOOKS) retarded. Less serious, no depth, meaningless reboot. The art is blatantly cheap and looks like poorly drawn versions of the characters that we would expect to see from a quick one-off reference in a show like Uncle Grandpa.

It'll hopefully be canceled before Season 1 even finishes, if we're lucky.
>>
>>4539277
What the fuck is this ?
>>
>>4539277
In terms of minifigures, the designs that fail to be cool wouldn't look any different from the originals.

>>4539297
I think it will end up like Get a Clue - runs for a few seasons, but then everybody forgets it even existed.
>>
>>4539297
Yeah, Mystery Incorporated kicked ass.

>>4539314
>>4539297
Dunno, if it's getting LEGO sets, Warner must REALLY be pushing the marketing this time around. Could turn into something big like the new TMNT.
>>
>>4539325
But the new TMNT series is actually GOOD.

>>4539329
It's not about appreciation of the show, but views/cost ratio. So they can go with full marketing on the spending, and make it made by a shitty team...

Make the doors and striping white. Makes the doors stand out and keeps the color scheme a bit more cohesive.

>>4539511
I didn't mean all of them, just the botom line, the white is perfect.

>>4539533
Maybe instead of black, since that will blend into the cart bit, he should use the gray he used on the roof? Makes it a bit more like a color sandwich of sorts.

This has probably been brought up in many Lego threads, but I don't lurk here often.

Are these total shit? I'm in it for the novelty for sure. If they're compatible, frankly they seem like a decent deal for the price as long as they don't fall apart upon playing with.

Oh, I didn't know. It looked to me like they had a number of stylistic differences in there, but I guess they just have different groups working on them or something.

>>4539596
Sheng Yuan has weird shoulders instead. It´s easier to accept the even crotch than those blocky shoulders.

>>4539545
Quality is good. I vastly prefer the leg connections the knock offs have since they don´t damage the legs when swapping like Legos parts do and everything is very firm and actually sticks together unlike for example the official Iron man figs I have where the first one I got had zero clutch in his feet after just a few months. The big figs I have no problem with. The prints are maybe a little smudgy but I have yet to hear of a case where the print was totally fucked up.

I would look for a better place that sells them like Aliexpress. A good price one could land would be ≈80 cents per minifig. The big figs are very uneven, I could get 3packs of different Hulks and Things for 4 dollars in total but Venom, Hulkbuster and Goblin are 4 dollars each.

I wouldn't mind if tail pieces for the werewolf and other humanoid beasts were just cape pieces because it'd save lego money on making new molds and be great for minifigures sitting in a vehicle without having to remove the bits.

This is my mancave right now. I'm sorting out some of my old lego stuff, and selling some of my other stuff. Broken up on the ground is my UCS Millenium Falcon, which I hope to sell for $1,500.

I've already made over $3,000 selling Cafe Corner, Green Grocer, the factory modular set and the Firehouse, as well as my UCS Star Destroyer.

I'm pretty much only selling stuff that I already had built before. I'm keeping the vast majority of my collection, which will be stored until I can find some interest in this hobby again... sadly I'm in another "Dark Age." I kinda regret all the money I've spent on Lego, but at least I can make back a lot of it since most sets increase in value, especially older stuff.

Also, this is how I store stuff in most of those drawers. It allows me to organize my stuff my color, as well as saves a shit ton of space that would be wasted if they were loose. It also preserves longevity of the pieces because they aren't brushing or scraping against each other.

I'll post a few more too, hopefully give you guys with a large amount some ideas on how to organize.

Making dividers in the drawers is easy too using some duct tape and cardboard.

Unless they have specially molded heads ala the Simpsons I don't see them turning out to be that different looking from what minifigs of the classic version looked like. The clothes are essentially the same, it's the art style that's different.

I really, really hope they make more tail pieces with the waist connection. Scratchy and Rocket's tails are so neat. And why stop at tails, belts could be a whole new minifig accessory.

Just saying, if warner, the owners of scooby doo right?, licensed scooby doo to a company no one on /toy/ even knew existed what chance is there of a sustainable attraction for lego to ride off on when DC is doing much better, lol batman, and not just a one shot like that back to the future and ghost busters sets, who again is also, I believe to be owned by warner. It just seems something nostalgic for lego to do because I doubt kids would buy no name monsters and anyone hardly remembers. Look at how monsters fighter did, great original theme but didn't do too well because kids don't care unless its from something they already know before hand.

You stick the studs on the plates into the holes on the technic piece. I've seen it done before, although I haven't actually tried it myself. In case it doesn't work, I'll just use some cylinder hinges.

Hey guys, me and some friends have been discussing ways to do DnD with Lego, I'm sure some of you have done it it/do it, any tips? I was wondering if I should get a marker and split my baseplates into grids. I have a couple big off-brand baseplates which I wouldn't mind marking up.

Don't use a marker, use plates if you have to divide sections.
Otherwise, I guess you can try converting movement stats and such into studs?

My "X-Wing modifications" came up recently but I didn't have any pictures or anything. Well, I still don't really have any pictures of the X-Wing, because really the "modification" just extends to moving the "Red Five" plates from the bottom wings to the top wings to turn it into "Red Ten", and then swapping out the pilot and the droid. Here, however, is Theron Nett and R2-X2 happily at work in their X-Wing.

it works the same either way, if you click the ball at the end of the lever, the rotation arrows should be aligned to let you rotate the arc of the lever, as opposed to clicking the base, same goes for the rocker, if you click on the inner plate(the rocking part) the rotater will move that piece,and vice versa if you click on the outer shell

You can drag the handle to any angle, you don't have to click on the 45-degree snaps.

Bear in mind the real thing clicks in steps of 22.5 degrees, which can be a bit of a pain when working out how to get it exactly like a real click hinge.

If accurate bends are not important, then just highlight the joint, and the arrow keys will let you move stuff in 18 degree steps.

The true light gray of X-wings falls almost directly between Lego's light gray and white. They decided white was better, probably because it "pops" on the store shelf more than gray.
