I was going to post that the newest Minifig set has a classic Space figure with a space babby and then I realized that /lego/ doesn't even have a proper Minifigure thread!

These are not strictly Lego but I hope it's OK to make a place to discuss Nanoblocks. They have some nice little architectural sets. Anyone else here have any experience with them?
Now I want a Tokyo Tower nanoblocks set tbh.

You hit the nail on the head there anon. It's a case of modern licensed themes being made by Lego while older Lego making licensed themes, if that makes sense. New licensed themes are accurate representations of their source material (hyper-detailed minifigures, heavy reliance on specialised pieces with no re-usability, and no evidence of it being a Lego set as it feels more like a scaled model) whereas the older themes had a distinct Lego feel to them. If I had to single out a specific theme that shows this, it'd be Harry Potter. Back in 2001 the sets were wildly different to the movies (I don't remember Hogwarts being that garishly coloured!) but had the Lego touch to them - the modern sets have lost this completely.

I've looked online and find that this change seems to be noticeable around 2006-08 with a slew of licensed themes each with unique pieces and less of a focus on rebuilding sets, though the first major change has to be the switch to flesh tones.

I've been kinda getting into Lego again after a few years, and I built this technical gun-truck, inspired by the ones in District 9. What do you guys think? >>544 That's actually really cool, mate! Simple yet really beautiful. >>562 That's beautiful! I hope you don't mind, but I'll be stealing that for future MOC apartments. And even if you did mind, I'd steal it anyways - it's fucking rad, and the way you implemented those sliding doors is awesome.

Buckets of Bricks Legoman 10/23/2020 (Fri) 17:48:28 No.676 [Reply]
How do you feel about them? Do you think recent ones are doing good at their role? What do you think is the best one? I like those that are mainly bricks, with some slopes and jumpers/side studders thrown in.

I've been pondering on how a new tub that balances new and old would work (we could submit it to ideas), As if there were 120 pcs for 12 colors OR 14 of 110 (with the other 2 colors being special or shapeful pieces), or make enough special pieces to fill the gap and make it a round number. 1 Black 2 Blue 3 Dark Purple 4 Green 5 Light Bluish Gray & Dark Bluish Gray (between the 2 they have the piececount of 1 color or 1 and a half) 6,7 Lime & Medium Blue & Pink (have the piececount of two) 8 Orange 9 Red 10 Reddish Brown & Tan (same as gray) 11 White 12 Yellow

>>676 They make nice fillers to bulk out a collection and while the newer ones are excellent, I do miss the basic tubs of old. FreeStyle was the perfect theme for this and I still don't understand why this couldn't remain an evergreen theme - all Lego has to do is release a bucket of bricks and a few minifigs because the entire theme was all about creating wacky creatures/vehicles/whatever you wanted from generic bricks >>681 I didn't get that particular one but I was gifted buckets of bricks and I'm so glad to have gotten into Lego through them. >>691 That's a nice balance of practical and exciting colours, anon.
Lego is healing! Rather, what I'm trying to say is, these new classic sets are an improvement. There is a higher proportion of common bricks. For the 333 piece ones, outside of some odd ones like the brown detail for this Ice cream or the wheel pieces, every piece is of the 6 colours highlighted on the box. Also the kind of pieces you get of each colour is nearly the same. All colours get the same amount of regular rectangular bricks, and while the decorative slopes differ, they are more or less the same amount. https://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemInv.asp?S=11027-1 Also, the biggest set takes the cake. It has less colors than previous ones (compare 10 to to 11016's 30), which means you actually have a bunch of pieces in the same colour to actually build something (in previous sets you'd even get only a singe piece ). But maybe more importantly, it's all pure 1xn and 2xn bricks, all evenly distributed.>>696

A lot of windows and doors and helpfully bricks for creating some buildings or for updating old city sets
>>1302 I like the blue translucent blocks.

Alpha Team Legoman 02/27/2021 (Sat) 03:58:52 No.961 [Reply]
This theme doesn't seem to have as much praise or scorn as others of its time. And the make-over they got in 2004 doesn't help. So what does anon think of Alpha Team, rightfully forgettable or unrealized potential that would have gotten to Ninjago levels? Did you like the Team better, or Ogel and his drones?

Hopefully this is of interest! The animation reel for TILT (Trans-International LEGO Team) is on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6T4tJFp_ZRk .
>>1084 Looking at that part with the drones dressed like outlaws, I think that they were meant to have a hat for each setting. Likely that was the Western level, wonder what other themes there might have been.
>>1103 >wonder what other themes there might have been You should check this out anon https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/85196-very-surreal-alpha-team-prototype/ . According to the designers the levels would take place in different areas of a human sized house: >Mt Fridgy was a “snow and ice” freezer environment that included a lot of frozen foods: pizza boxes as platforms, ice cream tubs, things like that. The Boss was “Ol’ Blue Ice” and the Neanderthaws were frozen in blocks of ice. If you defrosted one, he’d starting walking in a forward line, swinging his club. >The Roller Toaster was a roller-coaster “hot lava” environment. Roller coaster cars that looked like slices of bread would ride the rails and get toasted by hot pools of lava. The boss was King Crusty. >Poodle Dreamland took place inside a dog pool. It was shades of pink and lavender, with topiary trees, and giant doggy bones. The boss was a killer poodle named Flea-Flea. >Aromazona was a world of giant flowers, inside a flower pot.
>>1111 >while digging through the Alpha Team video game files, I found asset lists and files and other evidence that the game was intended to have two more zones than the final game. Details can be found here (along with more things posted later in this topic), but in short, Alpha Team at one point had Mountain and Moon (Space) zones, in addition to the four zones in the final game (Tropical Island, Subterranean, Undersea, and Arctic - all but Subterranean were turned into real LEGO sub-themes). I also found object listings for a "Cyberia" zone, and a "Neandert" listing under the section for enemies (more on that later) Now the dev didn't recall any cyber sounding zone, but my guess is that is has to do with the part in the video with the mechanic and the insectoid turrets.
This might be off-topic, but how exactly can you datamine the LEGO Alpha Team Game (extract sound files, etc)? Been trying to figure out how but the only possible way of doing it is enterily updated and doesn't function correctly
