No real reason, just to hypocritically hearken back to a similar time against a backdrop of complex buildings. Possibly also some marketing tripe for roping in older fans.

DO IT. Start with the biggest pieces, sort by type. As a bonus, it will refresh your memory about pieces you may have forgotten that you own.

I liked the $100 bill challenge from the last thread, but I worry that it's too exclusive, since not everyone here might have that piece.

Except for local or very limited promotional items Modular buildings are the only sets that produce new smiley heads.

Some of them are just cute and interesting creatures. A lot of people, including myself, haven't been able to take them apart because they liked their designs so much.

Stop it. You're hurting my soul.

Is it okay if I have lots of sets that are built, lots that in big part bags, and lots that sitting in storage built (as well as unopened boxes)? I also MOC, but not very much. I mostly like to build official sets...
I like to think my castle is what an official lego castle set would love to be if it had more budget....and you reminded me; I need to make a little stage for a court jester to perform on.

See, thats why its smart to keep those near the counter because people will realize when a bright pink box disappears. The grey/dark blue coloring of the star wars sets are easy to not notice when gone because of how generic they look when paired next to the other sets.

Who gives a fuck, Optimus Prime would still be Optimus Prime is he was fuelled by 'Space Koolaid' instead of Energon; just as Bionicle is still Bionicle now that they have 'Masks of Power' instead of Kanohi.

Besides, they kept 'Toa', even if it's not in the set name.

at least GOTG sets are COLOURFUL.

Why is it THIS FUCKING SET that's so marked up to kingdom come everywhere I look?

Bricklink, Amazon, even frigging Ebay!! Yes, I know there's a new Snowspeeder out (I have it), but the entirety of this set is quite appealing. Plenty of other 2013 sets still out and at discounted prices, even.

Was this just the perfect set or something? Limited release? I'd be okay paying $50-60, but not $95+.

On the new page sort everything by "Lots Total" so it shows the store with most of your stuff first. There is no way to sort it by lowest price or lowest price/piece ratio, you have to do that yourself by looking into every store and comparing prices.
Maybe adjust the filter so it only shows stores within your country.

Gah.

Stud-in-hole connections are only illegal if it's more than one stud from a single piece, because the distance between the holes is slightly different than the distance between the studs.

Hard to tell if there's room in the back for the gunner, the rear-facing gun itself is present. To answer the original question about why it's so expensive, it's all about the clearly indicated "hard to find" minifigs, take them out of the equation and it's just an average set.

>>
>>4544902
It doesn't say the distances are different, it says the Technic holes are very slightly smaller and cause a tighter fit. And honestly the point about the side of the red flat being taller than the Technic piece is bullshit, I just tested it and there's no overlap whatsoever. Overall they can be disregarded if you aren't a little kid or extremely autistic.. oh yeah, legos.

Read the document yourself, dumbass. It doesn't say that the Technic holes are differently spaced, it says that they are smaller than System holes. Putting a single stud in a Technic side hole is illegal too, according to that document.

'illegal connections' are typically connections that strain the plastic of the pieces, which can cause failure and breakage. They are also connections that can be difficult or even impossible to undo without damaging the parts.

So to downplay poor design decisions they declare some connections to be "illegal" and threaten to send the TLGPD after anyone who dares to defy them, gotcha.

Seems the minifigs were custom printed by Citizen Brick. The vehicle is Batisbricks and the gear and weapons appear to be mostly Minifigcat, if you were wondering.

>and will probably be mad at you if you give it plastic bricks instead

Well, those bricks didn't cost money, from a gifting standpoint. He already has them for entirely separate reasons, so it's not like he couldn't also get them a tablet. The gift of those legos won't come at the expense of things which cost money, since the legos didn't.

If you actually put a price limit when you add the minifig to your wanted list you can easily avoid being wallet-raped, the only issue left is overcharging handling/shipping fees
>>
Any tips for working with those ratcheted exo force/knights kingdom parts?
>>
>>4544894
Plenty of other sets that have exclusive minifigures... Must be related to the fact that it's exactly what it is; Hoth, an iconic battle scene...

Still, the whole set is a nice piece taken together, which is why I'd like it.
>>
>>4545070
The joints tend to be hard; build more tightly so nothing gets catapulted or stays in your hand when posing.

Thanks! I'm having trouble finding digital camo minifig parts. Need it for my tacticools

Is it just me or are there no actual joints in the walker's legs except for their connection to the body?

Argh.

Anyway, here's an update of the mech I'm making. I decided to give him this deco as a little homage to Apeface from Transformers.
>>
>>4545194
Just spread some sticky-tack inside the joints.
>>
>>4545175
Looks like a ratcheting joint, top of the leg. Probably moves backwards only, like the AT-AP's legs.
>>
>>4545197
Will this work for a connection between a 1x2 hole brick and the male end of the ratcheting joint? Right now I'm just concealing a female ratcheting part inside the mech torso.

Dunno. These are all 30+ years old and loose as all get-out, but they're perfectly rigid with some tack inside.

You could probably even get nicer stuff that you can't see. Or take the time to make sure it doesn't show.

>>4544324 here; my policy with Lego will be the same as my policy with my 1/64 John Deere tractors (no, I'm not farmer 4chan, but I'm the only other guy who posts in his biyearly threads): I'll be sharing them with my theoretical child(ren) when they reach the appropriate age to play with them under low to moderate supervision--not to play too rough with them, but not to treat them like they're some fragile collectibles. It's Lego; it can take a bit of knocking around.

I see one of the UFO impulse sets, and...is that Ice Planet 2002? I'm not really familiar with that theme--it was before my time.
>>
>>4544885
>>4544894
It's the same basic design since 2004; there's no reason why we can't have a flesh-faced Dack Ralter; except that Lego doesn't seem to want to put standard smiley-face pilots in SW anymore. No, everyone's gotta have MUH GRIM DETERMINED SMIRK.

Oh yeah, and regular smileys haven't been "detailed enough" for SW since before 2010, when they started added pupils to the minifigs.

I would like to but I only ever use Snapchat to take them, which deletes the snaps after they are viewed or deletes them from your story after a day.

This is basically the cast for now. I didn't picture the rest of the flexers or any of the spikels because, while I do use them, I haven't really changed them much at all. The green guy is based off of Glomp and the Balk has four legs and a tail now. I'd like to add a red one into the mix but none of the Infernites are really doing it for me.

They also have the Ice Skating scene for orders over $99 already. Meh.

Incidentally I found some new polybags at Target. Chima Frax' Phoenix Flyer, Chima Worriz' Fire Bike, Friends Jet Ski, Imperial Shuttle. Phoenix and the Jet Ski were in the stocking stuffer section of the christmas aisle(s). Imperial Shuttle and Fire Bike in the check-out. $3.99 each.
