Yeah, they're all trans-medium blue, but the BTCs are made of a slightly different plastic than the head or cheese slopes so they glow a lot more brightly.

Bar is just trans-light blue and doesn't react to UV.

I'm confused. I thought Nexo Knights was being cancelled due to unpopularity? Was that just some rumor or bullshit?
>>
>>6518183
There's a new wave of both Nexo and Elves, but so far they've only appeared in European catalogs, so the rumor is that they'll both be Euro-exclusive lines.
>>
>>6518183
It was going to be cancelled but because of the 2017 wave which sold great they decided to go through 2018. The 2018 sets were finished around october 2016 as Mark Stafford stated on Eurobricks.

Damn, finding all these concept artworks amazing to look at. What book are they from? They just ooze with the designer's distinct roleplay passion. It's a shame that after years of development have resulted in diluted and generally safe final products. I randomly picked up an unopened Nexo Catapult from a charity shop for £2 and was surprisingly impressed by the design because the boxes look so dull imho.

Anyways I mentioned last thread that I finished painting this piece yesterday. I'd like to colour correct it but my laptop screen changes so much that I was painting a green sky for most of it.

When will Lego do Trolls again?
>>
Nexo shield emblems are pretty neat, we haven't had a theme with such a variety of printed tiles before. I found this site cataloguing them all, but I'd prefer a gallery with larger thumbs if anyone knows of them. Using the bricklink catalogue isn't much better.

Since a LEGO Skeleton is made of plastic, isn't it technically a boneless skeleton?
>>
>>6518053
huh, what brick are you using to put the horns and chainsaw in?
>>
>>6518040
Starting to hit levels of A E S T H E T I C, but needs a little bit more blue and purple. Also consider some LED plates and some light bricks, you can get them pretty cheap from Ali, and in colors that lego didnt use.
>>
>>6518108
Goth waifig in that pic is making my brick hard.

Ha!

Are you sure? Because last time that book was just glorified "current sets" spam, in the end i only enjoyed it for Merlok minifigure and the Knighton map.
>>
>>6518412
He looks cool. Too bad he comes only in the worst sets.
>>
>>6518205
This might be as old as 2009, they said they picked lava and rock monsters because the designers worked on Power Miners before or something like that.

Also, as much as I like the orcs and totally-not-necrons, it's pretty obvious GW would sue over these designs, and Lego probably went with more generic designs to avoid trouble. Note how the two distinctly warhammer-y fire monsters are nowhere the be found too.

Thanks anon, the back side of the housing zone still looks a little bare but the front might be more to your liking.

Yup, already considering it once I get everything else done. Do you know if they make UV light bricks?

>>6518679
I think the purple light brick is basically a UV LED. I just know that you can get a SET of light bricks from china for like $5 and it comes with like 7 different colors and a RGB brick. Also the LED plates you can get usually are just white LEDs, but im sure if you look you can find them in multiple colors. Hell, some of the sites/stores that make them might even do customs, but that might be a little more expensive. I will say, the LED plates, you WILL NOT find them much cheaper from china than you will from other sources, its one of the few things that are not cheaper coming from the land of no copyrights. My theory is they are all made by the same group in china probably. I know the guy on BL that sells them is based there, not sure about iBrick or some of the other companies. but I wouldnt be surprised if they were just middle men who source them from there.

As for the back of that building....

Walkways and scaffoldings man. I like the way they did it on ninjago city, using the jail doors for them, but I would add a railing to the design to make it a bit safer looking and to add to that somewhat wrought iron industrial aesthetic. Robot arms with bars are your friend for that.
>>
>>6518746
OH YEAH, and maybe look on like amazon or even aliexpress for "EL Wire", that shit is PERFECT for adding mood lighting to small things (or making light up clothing to cause seizures at concerts. Daft Punks outfits from the Alive era had EL wire laced through them like thread. The stuff is very cool and useful for a lot of neat projects.)
>>
>>6518731
No, but now I kind of want to. Maybe after I finish my mausoleum project.
>>
>>6518736
>>6518731
Not surprising that someone hasn't, AFOL builders aren't fond of nexo
As seen in people around the web jumping at any rumor that it's cancelled

>>6518764
The designer Mark Stafford told to all the EB fags that Nexo is a castle theme,it was tested with other castle themes and it was the most succesfull one. Of course they are too retarded to understand.
>>
So,which Nexo Knights 2017 set is your favorite?
>>
>>6518770
It's got knights, squires and kings, magic and monsters, jesters and castles so of course

IT'S NOT A CASTLE THEME ALL OF MY NIGHTMARES ARE COMING TRUE GET IT OUT OF THE CASTLE SUBFORUM GET OUT REEEEEEEE

That whole Black Knight line had such a great look (especially the minifigs). Too bad a lot of the sets had the ridiculous raised baseplates. Really ruined the set quality imo.
>>
72001 Lance's Hover Jouster-It's a little similar to the 2017 twin jouster,the vehicle is an hover with an big lance,small tower parts and spring loaded launchers. The set includes Lance and undead warrior.
72002 Twinfector-Catapult style monster with spider legs,black,gun metal,trans-green. Includes Macy,undead warrior,King Halbert and a small monster.
72003 Berserker Bomber-It looks like that flying helicopter from Avatar with rotors on both sides put on horizontally. Set includes Axl and undead warriors.
72004 Tech WiZard-It's a battle set,it includes a brick-built Merlok mech for Clay and and Monstrox Mech style like Merlok from 2017. It comes with other undead warriors and Ruina.
72005-X-Bow- Large tracked vehicle with two large springs on both sides. Includes a big trans-green monster like Grimroc,Aaron,Queen Halbert and small monster things.
72006 Axl's Rolling Arsenal-It looks like an world war vehicle which lands from water to the beach with giant links on the sides. Dark blue, gold, trans-orange and dark grey. Villains are black and trans-green undead warriors.

Lance vs. Lighting, I love the NK bigfigs but all the earlier sets with them were pretty bad (still got the cyclops separately, though). I really like the battlesuits, too - great basis for mecha mocs, torsos were always the thing I had trouble with if I didn't want to make something huge or incredibly flimsy.
>>
>>6518936
>You are the reason 1400 people lost their jobs
I'm sure it was more than the tiny amount of AFOL sales, and even if, there's no reason for a consumer to buy products they don't want

Nothing seems to contain a spider-shaped villain vehicle and that's what was shown in the official preview.

King/queen/bigfig villain are things every wave so this is hardly a proof OP has any insider info.

There isn't much of it around (we got less than a dozen Nexo drawings and it was in development since 2009) and whenver something new comes, people basically dump all the old stuff here, so honestly just checking the general every now and then is your best bet.

It's not as much as other things I've built previously. Can't post it now because I have no pics of it and I'm going to bed, but I've built a shuttle that does exactly the same with it's wings. But yeah, it's probably my favourite building technique.

Still working on that centaur thing from last thread; torso's hard to work with when two of the most important pieces aren't in LDD yet.

Take one of those transparent 1x2 neck braces and place it in the front, then put appropriate circular studs or tiles on them. This'll give your klockettes some Duplo-sized cylindrical bricks.

I recently made an order on BL. The seller had 100% feedback from 1700+ orders. They sent an invoice the day after I ordered. I payed with in a couple of hours of getting the invoice and within an hour I got a message from them saying "thanks for the quick payment, if there are any problems, please feel free to contact me".
A few days later, once the payment had cleared, they shipped the order, once again sending a message to let me know and once again telling me to contact them if I have any questions, need help or have any problems. They also left positive feedback.
I planned on giving them positive feedback and a great comment, for what I consider to be really great service.
Now the orders came in today and it is missing a couple of things. Namely 6 weapons, totaling about $3.50.
As I said, so far they've provided excellent customer service and I did open the package in my car (to see what order it was that had arrived). However, I only opened the top, looked in, pulled out a business card and then partially resealed and sat it on my passenger seat. I didn't take anything out. I've also looked through my car and found no sign of them, but the possibility remains, that they may have been included and I lost them on my own.

I fear that if I say "Hey, the weapons were missing" and they give me a refund, I'll then find the parts in my car or something.

What should I do /lg/?
So should I contact them and see if this was an honest mistake on their part and the weapons were just left out by accident, or should I just say all's good and cut my loses?
>>
>>6519830
Mistakes happen. Do contact them. Do not leave feedback before they reply
>>
>>6519830
like the other anon said, contact him.

perfect 100% score doesn't mean they never screw up, people sometimes wait to post feedback until a problem is resolved.

>>6519980
Fuuck you are absolutely right, i hate those small shitty vehicles that don't contribute to set at all and their main purpose is driving the price up. Ironically people are put off with higher price so lego makes less despite charging more, serves them right.

And what we really need is nexo knights bad guys 10$ set just like city has those small sets with 4 minifigures
Lego jews released their battlepack with 3 minifigures, they even reduced the number of minifigs from previous wawe and are asking 15$ for it, no way somebody is paying that much... and yet they are suprised with how profit is dropping of for them, they brought this on themselves for being greedy jews and overpriceing their product, now some faggot will bring that price per piece ratio, fuck off please, dont you dare mention that shit to me. 1×1 plate is not worth as much as castle wall panel and they are keeping same parts number for that price range but they are making parts smaller. Lego sets should be compared on how much does the set weighs in grams and not how much fucking pieces does it have. The weight of plastic should be measured not gay price per piece ratio. They are ignoring their primary market-kids and they don't produce sets which you can buy with pocket money anymore. Yes, there are cmf but they are not sets and they are pretty limited on what you can do with it. I just hope that this will hit lego where it hurts them the most, their wallet so they make their sets available to everyone and not just rich cunts who dump 800$ on shitty grey brick.

>>6520120
>And what we really need is nexo knights bad guys 10$ set just like city has those small sets with 4 minifigures
I believe that's the niche sets like The Glob Lobber, Chaos Catapult, Knighton Disc Launchers and King's Guard Artillery were supposed to fill. Unfortunately all they managed to do was give us a (generally) lame build and two minifigures. They should really replace one of those little versus sets with a Chima-style tribe pack for the villains. Jestro's running around with hordes of cannon fodder monsters, after all.

Not sure why the City starters are so much better than Nexo Knights' or Ninjago's, they just are.

I was hoping to be able to afford the UCS Millennium Falcon when they rereleased it, but honestly it's so disappointing. The $300 price hike is not what I was expecting, I don't remember the old interior but the new design is unbelievably poor, and they fit so little detail into its massive piece count outside of mediocre greeble.

I've never gotten a UCS but there has been a huge drop in quality since the Slave 1 and coincidently or not the Disney take over. I'm still intrigued by a AT-AT at $200+ but can't trust Lego not to drop the ball at this point.

Indeed, I got one of each Small set and two of the "Army Builder" blister cards, but the new Army Builders are way lamer by shaving off only $2 USD for one less Minifig, and the Stone Army got no small generic set of their own...

Adventures already had a reboot, it was called Orient Expedition and was better than the original

Exo Force was 90% shit and I'd rather just have two-three well-designed mechs per year in various themes like we do now. For the same reason I'm ok with fantasy themes like NK/Ninjago, since designers can do a lot of stuff that wouldn't sustain a full theme as part of them without ideas jumping the shark - a full dragon theme would end up boring within a year or two but stating with the ghost wave, Ninjago gave us one or two fantastic dragon builds per year.

pls /lg/ advise me

Got a Bricklink order in, with some parts and minifigs I wanted, and then an 'oh I could use that' assortment of dark gray parts. 20 1x2 bricks, 10 1x4 bricks and so on.
The seller made a mistake and instead of 20 2x4 plates sent 10. Value 60 cents. What would you do?

Contact them peacefully with the intent of pacific negotiation.
>>
>>6521980
Message them and explain the error, and write "Please send the missing pieces if possible". If they tell you no (they will almost certainly not tell you no) then you just have to ask for a refund. But they will almost assuredly send you the missing parts.
>>
>>6521988
Please be advised, this only applies to certain areas of the western United States. Atlantic or Gulf negotiation varies considerably.

This is true. When contacting people from other regions, engage in combat first, immobilise them and the question them for the lack accuracy in the number of pieces. Then proceed to threaten them with a piercing object or a gun until they give you the appropriate pieces. After the deed is done, use the previously mentioned weapon to eliminate them and take all their belongings.
>>
>>6522064
That's Gulf method. Atlantic method involves threatening to leave a bad review with the BBB.

Seconding this, but heard from several sources kids apparently do this less now.
(some pedagogy psychologist had her worries about this with wich i was pretty onboard for the most part, but she sabotaged herself a bit by mentioning cookiemonster in her initial example. (A character loved because of its a lovable and universally relatable flawed character moreso than brandrecognition)
I used to actively avoid using pieces with logos on it like Exploriens because then it would give away that it wasn't my own made up thing that i wanted it to be. I wanted to make my own worlds, not redo existing stuff.
I've really come to love all the different official Lego factions now though and happily integrate and headcanon them into my world however i please next to 100% original stuff.

This is why I'm not a big fan of the overly-specific printing detail on a lot of Ninjago or (previously) chima figs. A lot of them are very character-specific

Castle fantasy subtheme, it's a shame both of the castle lines we got since then were very boring outside of the blacksmith/peasant sets.

SPIII is my second fave and I really like recent robots and dragons from Ninjago a lot. NK has some pearls too, if it was released when I was a kid it'd be my favorite theme.

Favorite old school theme is Forestmen, favorite newer theme has to be first wave Chima. It's like Space meets Castle, but with animals. It's almost a precursor to Nexo Knights in a way. There's also the Game of Thrones-type kingdoms warring with each other aspect that I liked.

Wacky original IP's galore, more homely space sets, more structures and props/ interiors, 6-wide two-seaters would be a thing. Less angry superheroes, more cool attitude and wacky fun that can be enjoyed by several forms of autism.

Sometimes peope consider a movie not worth it if friends or critics they for the most part agree with say it's not worth your time. If you want to watch it regardless for other reasons ofcourse they can do it, but if a movie is unanimously viewed by people you trust to be complete ass you might just want to reserve it for a rental or pirate somtime down the line instead of the theater.

>goin to de lego stoh tomorrow to get me a siberian pimpmobile

I can't fucking wait, lads. Gonna smash that build out in about 4 hours and get that familiar guilt such like you would get from a wank over a shemale video or similar
>>
>>6523254
It's okay anon, you don't need to feel guilt. Traps aren't gay.

God forgive me, but I thought Madman's art of Wyldstyle wasn't. . . bad.

So I play a bit of DnD, and was thinking about using minifigs as character figures for games.

Problem is, I don't have an extensive parts library and I've never purchased minis or pieces individually, almost always sets.

Good idea/bad idea/good parts to look for?

>>6522442
Vsauce there in the background. I'd buy it from you, anon. Rock Raiders drill cracked me up.
>>
>>6523343
Definitely look at Bricklink for individual parts.
Probably focus on helmets, hoods, and assorted weapons. There's some good sword sheaths from Ninjago under "Minifig, Body Wear".

I have a bizarre scenario: I live in a shitty rented flat above a closed-off basement that basically has a swamp in it, and all my rubber lego bits (tyres etc.) are stinky and mouldy.

Am I going to fuck them up forever by putting them in a diswasher?

What are the essential Lego things I should bring to occupy my away from home time that may or may not have power? My plan is a box of classic, a few minifigs, a brick sperator, and maybe a couple of baseplates.

Also stay safe out there Daytona-bro. And the other anons in Florida.

>box of classic
have you not developed enough taste that you know what you like to build? bring your favorite parts not just a box of classic

hell, just bring the leftovers from your last project, it will have a coherent color scheme
>>
>>6523434
I'll consider it, but I enjoy building unimaginative boxes in rainbow colors.

You have to know by now that the Movie will never live up the original material...

On the same level as the original model imo.

I am! I hope you're safe too ProLC. I evac'd to gainesville when the track was on the east coast, then came back today after the track shifted farther west.
