Have any questions? Check out the guide:
Come up with new challenges please
I'd like to nominate Designer (not Creator!) and its sub-derivative, Inventor, for extra cosy themes.
Those instruction booklets were something I really enjoyed looking at, because besides an idea model or two you got the models actually being shown doing stuff with neat backgrounds, or even little stories in the case of Robobots.
Challenge suggestion; Create a monster that'd make a mean ride, or make a mean ride for a monster. Alternatively, create a vignette or display where monster hunters or innocent bystanders spar with spooks.
Shut up grandpa, your kin derailed too many threads and too many people wasted time explaining why your standpoint is nothing but misguided nostalgia and you don't even look at modern Lego before making dumbass comments
>>Current proposals for October Challenges:
>Halloween is near! Build a suitable hideout for horror minifig of your choice to celebrate.
>Time Cruisers / Time Twisters: great theme or greatest theme? Design an original set for whatvis arguably Lego's greatest triumph!
>Make up your own B-movie and create a scene from it!
>Create a monster that'd make a mean ride, or make a mean ride for a monster. Alternatively, create a vignette or display where monster hunters or innocent bystanders spar with spooks.
>Make the spookiest skeleton
>Make something very spoopy with skeletons. It doesn't really matter what, it just has to involve a LOT of skeletons
>Fallout 4 comes out early november perhaps a fallout inspired challenge would be good for october.
>Build a mad scientist's lab since Halloween is near!
>Build a scene showing your favourite security force busting into someone's home for posting leaks
I actually had these folks lying around for about a year before Gor et al. started posting the wojtus. When they first showed up in /lg/ I was a little worried that somebody would think I had stolen their idea.
Man, it's the last day of the month and I haven't done anything for the Paradisa challenge yet.
The party is ready to get into the dungeon!
Would Snoo snoo.
Also, going to post the Halloween Contest rules tomorrow afternoon/evening EST depending on how long my work day is.
Kamm gets a lot more posable if you switch the joints in his arms and take out the trans-red studs above them.
Just looks like this. Kylo fig is best fig.
For those who have it, what do you think of Dimensions, /lg/?
>tfw water on mars got me jonesing for life on mars sets
I couldn't resist dropping some money on one of these, hope the life on mars sets are as fun as I remember them being!
Life on Mars was great. It's the last "friendly space explorer theme we've gotten isn't it?
Yeah theyre all from wow. The warglaives are a bit unsturdy. The gun piece is for gripping. Ive played with other designs but this is the one im most satisfied with.
If you don't count the current City spacecraft sets, then yeah. It was the only series with friendly aliens, technically - later we got Mars Mission which was pretty much a gritty reboot of the LoM aliens and semi-realistic astronauts, SPIII and Galaxy Squad.
I don't count Alien Conquest because it's pretty much a pulp theme like Pharaoh Quest and Monster Fighters rather than a space theme.
The sets were hit and miss for me, but this mech, the blue one and the tan thing you could make out of the second biggest Martian vehicle were all rather good - better than most of Exo-Force mechs, imo. For me, they were only surpassed recently by the Ninjago samurai mech (and its ghost remake from this summar) when it comes to official mech builds.
First monster fighters, then scooby doo. Do you think Lego will continue the spooky theme in some way?
Ninjago had ghosts and skeletons and presumably gets some more next year.
We'll probably see something like MH in a few years as the standard one wave only theme they do in the summer wave considering there's a pattern to them, seemingly. And it's guaranteed we'll get many more monsters in CFM, there's at least one every two series.
are these made of hard plastic or is it that kind of flexible rubbery material like the medusa/ninjago snake tails?
City has a space subtheme, so the answer is probably yes, even though conflict/faction-free space themes were oddities in Lego's history after Classic Space (the exceptions were Mars Mission, M-Tron and Ice Planet - maybe Exploriens and Insectoids too, but iirc Insectoids fought each other and Exploriens were fighting UFO, most other space themes had different versions of Blacktron and/or Spyrius as villains)
He stands up fine. However, it's obvious that mixel joints aren't strong enough for this build size, but Jim skipped leg day so that's what I had to work with.
Welcome back to /toy/, anon! It's cool to ask questions here.
>how much would this cost to build
This would depend on the rarity of the specific pieces he used, and
>would there be a tutorial or brick list somewhere online?
This model was designed by that anon who posted it. He might help you out, but MOCs elsewhere on the Internet rarely ever have tutorials; it's not that they're being assholes, it's just that it's unnecessary work unless enough people ask for it.
>retailer catalog highlights collectible NEXO POWERS
>new shield pieces have QR-like markings along the edges
>guaranteed multimedia support
Looks like we're getting an interactive mobile game with this theme. Interesting to see them progress from the Ultra Agents app bricks.
I have no idea what any of my mocs actually costs. This one contains 661 pieces so you could probably calculate a rough estimate from that and then add upwards to 50% depending on what sellers you end up buying from. I only needed 2 or 3 semi-rare pieces this time, so it wasn't too bad.
and now its full of bootleg iron man minifigs.
Did you actually look at the older leaks? There are at least two types of rank-and-file knights for the good guys if not more (tiny robot knight and dude who looks like Man-at-Arms form He-Man in blue), and only 4 or 5 named ones, much like Fantasy era had 4 or 5 "characters" per side (king, queen, princess, golden knight and jester for the good guys, evil wizard, troll king and shaman and skelly knight for the bad ones), technically there's not much of a difference.
Anyone out there still in need of Dimensions build guides?
Well, a lot of people. The chinese bootleggers are making bank with all the units that they are selling. Why do you think that exist all those repaints in first place?
Lego and Marvel are losing millions because they are so rigid with the licences and shit, finally all this only benefits to China.
I recently got one of these, and now I want to make Lego mechs with space for pilots. Unfortunately, I have all the creativity of a brick.
In spite of that, I want to try making my own, but I lack a lot of the parts. Are there any sets or anything that just come with a load of handy parts for that kind of thing?
Is there some kind of app (I'm thinking like a QR reader) where you can scan a piece/pieces and have the closest color match come up? I'm trying to separate my light greys and light bleys, and sometimes it's pretty near impossible until the thing's put together - but my eyes aren't what they used to be.
No such software exists, sorry. Light conditions are so variable it wouldn't have been feasible for it to exist anyway.
Do you know anyone, any friends whom you know to have better eyes for colors than you? They could help.
Alternately, you could put together a chunk of old grey and a chunk of light bley and just stack pieces onto them to check the colors.
Idiot taking pics of his easy-to-recognize-hands holding the catalog...
>someone bought two stud minigun barrels, but not the triggers from my store
It's always fun to look at the orders and wonder what the guy will use the parts for.
And then there's stuff like this. I honestly can't think of a single use for the barrels only.
Fucking this. Designer is the most underrated line there is. As someone who mainly MOCs and barely ever buys sets, these are my favorites. Designer reminds us what lego is all about, as the kits themselves are made to provoke now ideas in builders. I'm scared it'll dissapear at some point.
tried going for a Space Marine vibe with this one. Local lego store had some unique pink panels so I wanted to do something with them.
Speaking of castles, the only castle set I've owned is the fright knights tower. I wanna get a proper castle now, so I'm asking - whats the best castle out there?
I've beemn eyeing 6086, it looks sick and has 4 knights!
Welp, Canada Post hit a new low for me today. Pic related finally arrived after 12 days in the system (point of origin is about 4 hours drive from here). 5 bucks (with shipping) and all my patience, guess it's worth it to finish my helicopter...
Bullshit. Sure it's been marginalized because chimashit and bonkles sell better, but you can still find plenty of new creator sets in LEGO stores, Target, Walmart, ect. not dead yet.
>It's always fun to look at the orders and wonder what the guy will use the parts for.
I always wonder what BL sellers think about this stuff.
Ordered a singular maraca for this.
Well, there's this one guy with 400 in stock.
Hohoho fellow toy soldiers! It's that time of the year ag... Wait it's only October..? I'm early? Oh sorry, wait what's THAT?!? OH GOD! NO! PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN! Ahhhhhh...
Well then. Moving on now...
Happy Halloween fellow /toy/ soldiers! So I have three of these polybags and they can be yours!
All you have to do is from now until the 22nd is make a Spooky MOC! Can be anything related to Halloween. Rules are you must email me a picture of your MOC with a piece of paper showing the date of your email and your email addy. Next you must post a picture of your MOC in the LEGO General as the point of my contests are always for original content.
'and that's it. I'll pick my three favorites and they'll each win one of the polybags. Anyone can enter and contest will end on the 22nd.

I got a nice bonus today because apparently I didn't take enough sick leave in the last year, so I finally got the Detective's Office that I'd been lusting over since it was first announced.
This is by far the largest set I've ever bought or received. Pretty excited.
I think I'm done with this for now until more.predominantly white sets are released.
I have heard of putting things between your box-spring and mattress. That could fix it. If it looks like it might be melted or something you could maybe re-heat it on a flat surface.
I'm in the same boat brudda, all i want to do is build a customized speeder for my shiddy tatooine moc.

I remember when I was a kid I built all types of weird shit, now that i'm older legos are a form of mediation. drink whiskey, relax, mindlessly follow the instructions and observe the complete product.
>i'm a basic bitch now
Nice, is that your own Airwolf?
Mad jelly that I will never have any of these parts
Please tell me that
triple barrel bayonet chainsaw laser cannon have a name!?
Glorious! I'd like to see your other builds, and that subtle ass detail gave me the best chuckle.
That actually happened? I feel sad for him as I was enthused with seeing what Nexo had in store in terms of designs but his hands, shoes and the store's laminate floor wasn't the brightest of
Im quite amazed that balances.
I'm sute if 4chan had a preview feature before post this would be avoided. Its impossible to tell when posting from mobile devices usually.
I often think this too, I often feel obliged as a buyer to inform them if they ever enquired. Do you have or sell the LDD file for this anon? Everytime I see your lady posted or on the legocarblog I think to myself 'one day...'... When the missus is away. The maracca made me giggle when I spotted it.
Love Chell, Gimli and the upcoming Marshmallow Man but not £30 each love.
Tyres, what do!?
>found pic related from the closet
>have no need for it, or the parts
>no one would probably buy it sealed, especially since shipping costs here are insane
>the parts themselves are nothing special, even if I managed to sell them, I'd make probably 2€ profit or something
God, I honestly don't know what I should do with this fucking thing
They had some chrome pieces initially too, mostly those grills (I still have 4 or 5, they're more resilent than any other chrome piece I ever had...). That wave with glow in the dark pieces was good for parts too.
I have that castle, built if you want pics or something. Not sure all of my knights are in place with it since I was collecting my legos from all around the house to make a list what is lost/broken.
no really anon, if you have to cover over 75% of the minifig with modelling clay or whatever that is then you may was well just make it from scratch, i will admit that its well modelled, but i don't see a point in bothering to keep the minifig features if you put that much work into it.
[spoilerswhenmootwo?]also, im not a fan of anime stuff, so no, not jealous.[/spoilerplsHiro]
>Do you have or sell the LDD file for this anon?
Honestly I should sell this shit, but my gut fucking hates the concept of paywalls.
It's pretty dense, has no steering, and the rear end is held together entirely by force of will and a blatant disregard for stud height.
who wants a bracelet made of lego chains and round tiles with elemental printings?
this is probably half of mine assembled, not counting technic, mindstorm and road plates
>So where do you keep your legos?
Three of these units packed full of organized pieces, plus a bunch of MOC stuff on top of them
I recently bought a nice drafting table because I was sick of bending over to build stuff. Now I can stand and build without stooping.
So it seems Lego Polska fucked up beyond comprehension
Halloween CFM are an exclusive. A fucking Smyk exclusive. Not sure how Carrefour managed to get them a month ago, maybe they have own distributor, but it seems individual, non-chain stores can't order them. My local one got a mix of random polybags (the Ninjago mech one, the tiger, some Friends stuff) and can't order CFM due to the restriction mentioned above.
I hope it's just the clerk being minsinformed, otherwise Onionland might be entering some new level of distribution hell nxt year (to be fair, this one was pretty bad too: Pirates are exclusive, UA is exclusive, good chunk of Superheroes is exclusive, seemingly Halloween cfm and some SW are exclusive too).
It's pretty good value for money, imo - those printed pieces go for 2-3 pln on Allegro and such, so with postage fee these alone would cost as much, and you get nifty golden chains and some studs on top of that.
Rzeszów here, Auchan seems to have them and Carrefour briefly had too, so yeah, likely not exclusive. There does seem to be a distribution problem, though, and I did see one store that got the assorted polybags instead.
SpookyPunichu! I made a movie trailer for you!
And a poster to hang in the lobby.
Glad someone was amused. My humor tends to be corny.
I'll never understand this mindset. LEGO is about building. If you don't want to build with it, just buy model kits?
First entry! Lego Quest you always amuse me so and yes I got your email.
Speaking of, I noticed I never actually posted the email for those who don't know it.
This has been a year of spooky. We started softly with the Glowkies in Mixel country, and at the tail end of the year we've gotten ghosts in Ninjago, Scooby Doo Legos, and the Series 14 Monsters minifigs. It may be 2spoopy once and for all.
It seems like Jestro has a magic book that lets him summon lava demons, and the big HP books are supposedly a centerpiece piece for the line, so maybe future sets will have different books that summon different types of monsters.
Coziest themes time?
Divers always seemed like a relaxed theme to me. No conflict, warm tropical water, nice underwater animals like the manta ray that you could hitch a ride on.
Old Castle stuff with those sunset backgrounds.
Friends has a lot of comfy accessories.
icoming dump "day at the seaside house"
interior of the first floor, fridge and small crate for the fruits.
floor below, hiding the binoculars, shelf below is for for keeping hula girl's maracas.
grandfather's scuba gear, along with his precious trophy, the blue diamond he found when he was swimming with white sharks.
(actually it's there just to keep the oxygen tank, also i wish i had kid hands , it's a VERY tight space to put anything in)
and that's all folks.
...unless you want me to make some scene with all these guys
>good set designs
>nice part colors
>seemingly useful figures
>oh yeah and the same gimmick as in UA that nobody pays attention to and has no impact on the sets ultimately
>UGH RUINED FOREVER
Friends, Fabuland, divers.
Also partially Monster Fighters, there's something cozy about the implications that there's a monster society with monster cooks and butlers and car rent servies.
Which themes AFOLs didn't hate in the last few years, really? Forgettable one wave Castle from 2013 that brought nothing new to the table and didn't even have civilans like Kingdoms?
Ninjago is bad because not muh ninja even though each wave has at least one semi-realistic building stylized appropriately and somehow it doesn't matter that once they've dropped the rubber dragon heads, everything is using pretty clever builds. NK doesn't even have that drawback so it's all grasping at straws so far, the complaints always resolve around the fucking visors.
>This is exactly what I need, how much are they and where did you get them?
About $12-15 each, available in the storage department of any large department store like Walmart or Target.
Has any one gotten the new AT-AT, I'm picking up the new Falcon and I'm debating grabbing the new AT-AT.
I want to grab that tank this that comes with Phasma but it seems way to high price for such a small tank.
When I was in the lego store in Denver they had a new version of the AT-AT next to the normal one, there didn't seem to much difference besides the minifigs looks better, and I never owned that AT-AT.
I got the starter, witch, jurassic world set, Nya (what set is the mech based on? I'm sure I've seen the game model in stores but can't find anything now), Gollum, Wonder Woman. They're pretty cool.
The mech is based on her first Samurai X set, the Samurai Mech from 2012 (the second snake people wave). The closest thing on shelves right now is the Titan Mech Battle, it has the evil version of the same build more or less.
>Go to Categories>Toys>Building Toys>All
>Sort: Price + Shipping: lowest first
All those penny auctions? Bootlegs. Do the same but replace Building Toys with Action Figures for more.
Then search YouTube for reviews to see if they're worth your pennies.
Are you talking about this one? It's a bit over 1 year old.
And yes, I'd recommend it. It's the best AT-AT released so far.
first i got two baseplates ,blue and sand, then i accidentaly bought surfer girl minifg.... then i said fuck it and i am going to make a summer beach!
also if you noticed clips in the lower floor, they are to keep the sunbeds inside when not in use.
>Classic Space Is The Coziest Theme Edition
I second this post.
Is this set any good?
It's probably my favourite out of all the TFA sets. Surprisingly big and feels very heavy and sturdy in your hand. Very cool thrusters and neat door mechanism. It nails the Imperial Look, it wouldn't look out of place next to an AT-AT.
And 7 minifigs! Captain Phasma is phenomenal, the stormtroopers and flametroopers are cool and eh the resistance is meh but atleast you have something to fight.
I told my self I was only gonna get a few of TFA sets but now i'm slowly realizing I basically want all of them except for the snow speeder
Kalashnikow riffle was a russian invention... Polland had Chopin and Copernicus.
no, they weren't french and german.
Just saw that somebody ran a short Lego Quest on /tg/ earlier:
Poland took a design that was already good and did their own thing with it, and that's great. Many burgers here in Freedomland like their rifles as much as, if not more than the Russian ones.
>Surprisingly big and feels very heavy and sturdy in your hand. Very cool thrusters and neat door mechanism.
This. The things a brick(weight-wise), has some cool action features. If it goes on sale for 20% off or there's a BOGO40% I'm definitely getting another.
I think I'll get to wrap things up sometimes next week. I usually only post once per day because it's a much slower site and there are less users around.

some of my internal construction is different than his, but it it looks right on the outside and should be just as sturdy
>LDD collision is lazy and won't let me slide 1x6 tiles into the 1x2 log bricks

>tfw they spent more time updating the LDD gallery
>tfw there is no open source version so fans can update it
Rail gun looks awesome btw. Had the same problem trying to put that rex that was posted earlier together.
That's a different tool, I think. LDD doesn't really use UVs in the classical sense, just surface shaders and a decal system, whereas a game engine would be using UVs, so that's probably an internal TT tool. Still official dimensions, but the bricks would be in a 3D modeling software format.

Honestly, the problem with knockoff brands isn't so much their part designs (I'm sure MB, say, has the same design tolerances when they /model/ the parts), it's that none of them are very good at the actual manufacturing process, so their plastics tend to be shit and their mold tolerances are worse.
Can someone explain to me why people keep saying Nexo Knights looks like Warhammer? Is it just that futuristic knights always look like Warhammer? Because the aesthetics are completely different.
That's the main problem with MB. I actually like some of their pieces and concepts they offer, but their materials just don't hold up.
>Is it just that futuristic knights always look like Warhammer?
Futuristic knights are the centerpiece of Warhammer and the new figures look Spessmuhreen as fuck.
WH40k is simply the most well-known sci-fi setting which boils down to "fantasy in space", it's not the best match but most people recognize it and the marine imagery, hence the posts you ask about.
The best match would be Stanislaw Lem's sci-fi pseudo-fairytales with robot knights and such but as far as I can tell they're not really well-known outside of his home country unlike some of his other work.
They look more like pic related IMO. I think the people saying it just lack sufficient points of reference so they just spam the one thing they know of that it vaguely resembles.
Yeah, they're basically like a mishmash of various 80s toylines with some improvements, you can find a plenty of similarities to MotU, Visionaires or Wheeled Warriors in the design department.
childhood stuff is in the shoebox.
new stuff is in plastic containers for easy access in case i am in mood for building
(wow, this picture turned out decently, despite artifical light)
Got these three today. Time for comfy building. Which one should I start with?

Well, that was an odd streak of luck. I just don't feel so hot that I have to blow 15€ or something on those next week so I can continue selling this stuff.

Yeah, no. You can keep your shitty Nexo Knights, I'm buying other stuff while people like you are distracted. Unlike you, I'm not buying out of neckbeard fanboy AFOL madness, I'm buying for my family.
