So after migrating here from 8chan, the /lego/ board has finally been deleted on 8chan (now 8kun). So now /lego/ has the claim to fame that on a website renowned for it's ties to cheese pizza and mass shootings, and whose owners defended all of this under free speech, /lego/ was just too hot to handle. Yeah I'm bending the truth slightly but it sounds impressive when you say the /lego/ was b& from 8chan

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?
I think they should have had more bad guy sets in the first year. Like a drone tank or barricade. Maybe having the soldier/guard drones there and making the one's in Ogel's base workers. The games had neat variations that would've look good as minifigs. Afterall the materials hype up Ogel having an army but the lonely two feel underwhelmed by the 7 agents. Deep Sea did it right but the underwater setting feels quite restrictive.

Alpha Team came out during the time when Lego was putting out some of the ugliest minifigures (Cam, Radia, and Flex are fuck-ugly) and still heavily juniorising sets so that's probably why it's so forgotten by the majority. Wave 1 was solid (I own 6773 Alpha Team Helicopter and it's an amazing set) and wave 2 was ok, but the complete overhaul in wave 3 is what killed the theme for me. The redesigns were frankly awful and the sets were even more juniorised and ugly than before. >unrealized potential that would have gotten to Ninjago levels? The behind-the-scenes conflict between Lego and Digital Domain stopped any potential for the theme. Alpha Team as we know it was created 6 months before the release of the game because Lego didn't like what Digital Domain were doing so the whole development of the theme was rushed. Even Ninjago ditched Garmadon after the first wave but there's only so many times you can redesign Ogel and his minions before it starts to get stale. >Did you like the Team better, or Ogel and his drones? Ogel all the way! >>968 Yeah that was another problem with Alpha Team. What's the point of having good guys if there's no bad guys to fight?

>>943 Looking through a list of all the chrome gold pieces and they're not coming up - https://www.bricklink.com/catalogList.asp?catType=P&colorPart=21 . My guess is that they're genuine pieces that have been chromed. I think there used to be a Bricklink seller that sold genuine Lego he'd chromed himself but I can't find him. Maybe he had to close up shop after Lego bought Bricklink.
>>930 >while Bionicle remained whole and gave it a big advantage compared to the other options I guarantee you they're exclusively referring to the 2001 sets.
>>945 >I think there used to be a Bricklink seller that sold genuine Lego he'd chromed himself but I can't find him. Maybe he had to close up shop after Lego bought Bricklink. You are correct; Lego forcibly shut down several Bricklink stores that were operating outside of their new rules, including the ones that offered custom chromed pieces.
>>963 Why doesn't Lego itself make properly chromed/gilded blocks anymore. I remember as a kid that the gold coins that came with the Classic Pirates sets were as shiny as real metal, but the, ostensibly, gold pieces from modern sets are a sort of a matte finish faux gold. What happened?

>>963 Lego buying Bricklink was the worst thing to happen. I don't buy custom pieces but a company buying the biggest chunk of their secondary market is indefensible. >>966 I think chroming pieces is costly and supposedly bad for the environment, not to mention the chrome eventually flakes off with wear, so I can see why they'd change it to something else. But holy shit is pearl gold so awful, the colour is so unbelievably inconsistent and doesn't look half as good as chrome gold. Pearl gold looks and feels so cheap, like something from a bootlego set. A, B, D and E are all pearl gold.

Yeah, there are still a few types of 1x1 eye bricks available, plus some other related printed elements like these reindeer head bricks from a North Pole set. I think at least one recent Creator box/bucket came with some.

I've been wondering, you hear about figurines manufacturer all the time, things like those guys who create custom Warhammer statuettes and the like, but I've never seen LEGO specialists.

Basically what I'm asking is:
-What are the tools used by LEGO modders to make their own brick sets and Lego people?
-Are there online tools?
-Are there behind the scenes into LEGO creation? As in, videos of the creative process behind designing a set/legokin, marketing/focus groups and actual production thereof?
-Who are the LEGO engineers that decide how many bricks should a building have?

>>587 How did you remove the prints?
Open file (156.10 KB 800x600 supply line.jpg)
Open file (139.65 KB 800x600 brick link.jpg)
>>597 >How did you remove the prints? With these two things. I use tape to cover up the sections of the piece that I want to preserve, and use an eraser to rub the exposed area until the printing is gone. First, I pull off a piece of tape (I prefer this specific brand and type) that's long enough to wrap around the piece being altered, and touch the sticky side with my finger several times so it's not as sticky. The reason for touching the sticky side with a finger is because if the tape is too adhesive, you'll end up pulling off printing when you remove the tape. On the other hand, you want the tape to be adhesive enough to stay in place so you don't end up pushing the edge of it away while you're using the eraser. Once the tape is ready, cover up the part(s) you want to save. Some pieces, like Harley's head, require multiple pieces of tape layered over each other and require you to remove and reposition the tape during the process (don't try to recycle old tape; always use a fresh piece when re-applying). Brush the eraser (I recommend the Pentel ZE22 because it's easy to hold) in the direction of tape->no tape. If you brush the eraser toward the tape (instead of skimming across the tape and onto the exposed area), you'll push the edge of the tape away and expose parts of the printing you want to save. Running the piece under hot water while you pull the tape off seems to help avoid pulling off printing, probably because it loosens up the adhesive. Best thing is to start with simple pieces that don't have a lot of printing you want to save, so you can get an idea how much force is needed to rub off the printing. Once you get used to that, you'll have an easier time moving on to more complicated removals. Here's another example; the left torso is a Simpsons Edna Krabapple that I removed the center printing from.
This may be of interest OP. You can make your own prints using a laser printer and release paper. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5RSz3XzIB0&pbjreload=101

Another interesting tidbit is that Orient Expedition is confirmed to take place in 1933. The sticker of Johnny Thunder from a Scooby-Doo set seems to imply that the Egypt line of Adventurers took place in 1922, though this could just be a reference to Howard Carter discovering Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922.

https://www.youtube.com/gMmDP3u0c0s Upcoming Monkie Kid cartoon, counts as comfy to me. Love the art style, the studio working behind it is also pretty excited about the whole thing. Kind of wish they'd do all the future LEGO cartoons like this, no more awkward 3D.

I had a dream last night that I was in a lego store, it was like there was some sort of convention in a mall or similar and the lego store was seemingly a part of it, maybe some kinda event, it looked kinda dark inside and there were some guys reading in there and browsing lego sets and making comparisons and stuff

Its been thick with fog so I can barely see the opposite side of the street and raining for 3 days straight. Feeling very comfy just sorting my pieces and listening to the pattering of the rain on my roof.
