Remember to follow the rules ( https://anon.cafe/lego/rules.html ) and have fun!

In regards to the rules:
-Although I don't allow other brands, I'll still allow builds with some off-brand pieces.
-Lego discussion can cover the toy itself, video games, tv shows and movies, books, and any other forms
-Yes, nude minifigures violate the 4th rule
-As a general rule of thumb, imagine the minifigures are replaced with actual people. Would your photo still be SFW?

This thread is for any queries you may have for the board, suggestions for improvements, etc.

Fuck, I could've sworn it archived fine. Currently re-archiving it, will edit the post so its updated.
It has now been updated, thanks for highlighting the problem.
This is an obvious newfag question, but why is the post name Legoman? I figured it would be something like Maniac because of the commercials.
>obvious newfag question
I wouldn't say it is, considering I implemented it first on this board. I couldn't think of a Lego-related spin on Anonymous, so I settled with Legoman. Honestly didn't think of Maniac but it would annoy me if there were two types of default for Anonymous. God forbid we have to create another board, but I think I'll switch to it.
So apparently with the site going down or something else we've lost a page or 2 of threads. If you lost your thread, I apologise for any inconveniences, and you are more than welcome to repost them

How can I achieve more organic look of lego?
What do you mean by organic?
You know, to make the figures/animals look less sturdy and more vivid. I feel like I always miss some aspect, but I'm not sure what it is.
In terms of building or photography? I guess if you're trying to build organic animals, using smaller pieces that aren't blocky and not having any studs showing would help making them feel less Lego-y. Also avoid showing any mold lines or similar marks that makes it feel more toy-like could be another way. For photography, I'd say positioning them in ways that they would naturally be in, especially avoiding keeping them in static positions. Whenever I take photos I find it helps to try replicate the pose with myself, seeing if I find the pose to be natural or not.

I made a couple of tutorial images that show some basic concepts about how to pose and shoot minifigs to make them more lifelike.

Here are a couple others I made as well. I have better lamps than the ones in these pictures.

Picked up 70671 Lloyd's Journey recently and overall its a great set. I'm seeing in several places that the set is being reduced right now, which only makes it better.

The set itself is a nice little fort for the ice samurai and its quite compact but good looking. Would be nicer to have more space for the ice guy to stand on, but that can always be changed.

The ice samurai is by far my favourite minifigure in the set and pretty fucking cool. The printing on his face is perfectly fine, but his torso printing needs more work - the white printing on top of the dark red isn't thick enough so it looks slightly pink.

The dual molded armour and helmet has to be the best part of this set and it looks really effectiv. The armour looks the same from both sides and the alternate face on the samurai means you can buy multiples of this guy and vary them slightly -definitely makes the set more appealing for army building,

Not much to say on the wolf other than she's good. Standard 1 POA on the neck and the red printing on the tail is slightly blurred, but otherwise everything's good.

Lloyd's torso and leg printing is pretty bad - the yellow area (which is meant to be skin) looks like lime green and the gold printing is already faded in places. His accessories are cool though and at least his face printing is fine.

Apologies for the less than stellar photography, I quickly took photos using natural light so they aren't the best they could've been

Stop Motion Legoman 12/31/2019 (Tue) 22:29:38 No. 197 [Reply]
Kicking it off with the classic that started it all.
>Journey to the moon
The oldest record Lego stopmotion, made in 1973, and is amazingly made by two 10 year olds and a 12 year old.

I never watched YouTube stopmotions during the 2000s, but they're quite nostalgic and charming even if they aren't animated very well.

How can I get into stopmotion?
I don't have the patience.
Try break it into small hour long chunks a day, that should keep it interesting without it getting boring and tedious. You could also figure out ways of limiting how much animation you need - check out the Brickfilms.com video in >>210 at 0:17-0:33 to kinda get what I mean. Something like that would be effective and quick to do.

At least you have somebody that supports you, it always nice to have someone that shares your hobby or is perfectly fine with it.
>My parents actually called me a manchild
Man that sucks, how did you respond?

Its only really my mother that is fine with my hobby while the rest of the family look down on me for it, but fuck them. Think about it - those fuckers are bland, copied and pasted shells of people with few interests and even fewer (if any at all) hobbies. As far as I see my hobby it's a productive hobby that gives me immense satisfaction and doesn't affect anybody else in any way, shape, or form. Don't let them drag you down anon.

Pic related; all sets were used but mostly complete and in nearly perfect condition. Seems like all of the builds were put together once and never taken apart. All the minifigs are basically mint.

The best part was being told "I checked Bricklink for all of these to compare prices before I bought them".
>Seems like all of the builds were put together once and never taken apart. All the minifigs are basically mint.
I had a conversation with an anon when we were back on 8chan about something similar. We were discussing about the history old figures (specifically the classic spacemen) have when parts of them are worn away or damaged. I think these sets have a similar history - just who was this person who never played with these sets? Were they a collector who bought them BNIB a couple of years ago and built them for display, or maybe bought for a child who soon grew out of Lego? Why would a child forget about so many of their toys?
It seems like some kids play with their legos by assembling the set and then putting it on a shelf. All the sets here >>203
had all of their instruction books and catalogs in perfect condition inside the boxes. I saved the instructions from all my sets as a kid because my mom told me to, but I could never see myself keeping all the boxes. Then again, I never kept a set together for more than a couple weeks.
>play with their legos by assembling the set and then putting it on a shelf
I know kids play differently, but I fail to see how a kid can play with a set like that. What's the point of a one use toy?
> I saved the instructions from all my sets as a kid because my mom told me to
Do kids really throw them away? I've never met anyone who throws them away.

Look at this mad cunt's fine work.
Videos like these are so satisfying, its kinda like you're a little Legoman on the train. Trainfags always put effort into their setups, so the payoff is always decent too. Same with the madmen behind GBCs.
