Thanks for the feedback guys, the rules have been updated. Currently wanting your opinions on: -Bootleg and clone brands. Continue to not allow it? Allow it but if contained to a single thread? -Shitposting - should it be contained to a single thread to prevent the catalogue from being clogged?
Off-brand: Nope, if they want to talk about fake bricks they can go to that other place. /lego/ should be for LEGO. Same with shitposting, if someone is bored enough to do that here of all places it should count as spam/trolling.
>>509 I think single containment thread for bootleg is bearable.
>>509 /pbbg/ moves slowly enough that I don't see a need for it here.
>>510 >>511 >>513 Thanks for the input, I've decided that I'll direct anyone wanting bootleg/clone brand discussion toward alt/toy/ over on https://prolikewoah.com/toy/. Shitposting won't be allowed either.

How's this for a badge? Seen as we're using the old sports kits I thought it would be fitting to use the old badge as well. Thought the "Play On" slogan from the 2000s was appropriate too. Don't know whether the badge would look better with just a plain Lego logo and just leave the slogan out. Still need: -name for our stadium -anthem -goal horn -victory song For the victory song I'd recommend this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhq-TbGJ5B8
>>528 Looks so good!
>>528 Goal horn could be an obnoxiously loud HEY.
Lego Yoda Needs to be in the team, maybe even as a medalled player and this should be his goal horn https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKWVNeDYZmU

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

Minidolls Legoman 05/18/2020 (Mon) 02:59:00 No.474 [Reply] [Last]
Minidolls! First released in 2012, they were exclusively used in the "girl" lines until The Lego Movie 2, after which time they immediately went back to being exclusively used in the girl lines. Minidolls have fewer points of articulation than minifigs and are thus more challenging to customize. Let's see your custom minidolls!

>>495 >>487 Forgot you can post batches of images. Here's another shot of the city and some individual stacks. I made these using a 16x16 template as the standard, with a few studs along the tops of the walls to anchor them to the next level, i.e. the way the Creator Expert building floors attach to each other. A few stacks have a footprint larger than 16x16 but most stick to that size. These are for the same setting as the hoverklocki that I occasionally post.
>>497 Obscenely detailed, especially with the piping along the walls everywhere. This stuff is just too good, you're harming my confidence.
>>497 This looks like so much fun
>>488 >you can't switch out the arms or hands That's not true, the arms can pop out of socket and be switched. I do it all the time. You just have to pull them straight out, instead of how the minifig arms need to be popped out an an angle.
>>512 Thanks for that, I thought with how thin the arms are popping them out would be impossible.

Post the latest Lego leaks, rumours, or upcoming themes here. Lego's just announced a Mario line and this is the rumored set line up. 71361 is a CMF wave according to the rumors, which should prove interesting. CMF Series 20 was revealed at the NY Toy Fair. The Mandalorian is getting 2 brickheadz and the long-awaited Razor Crest

Obligatory Monkie Kid mention. I'm definitely getting Pigsy's Food Truck, solely because it's a food truck and it'll look great right next to the rest of my food truck parking lot.
>>458 Not going to buy any of MK set, but if I would it would probably be the truck. Earlier, I was considering the HQ cargo ship, but then I found out that it just opens up as a whole and the boxes are not separate from the ship.
>>428 >Implying they aren't already doing it because of any other licenced themes.
>>428 there have been some Mario K'nex toylines with actual minifigs (that got super scalped fast) >>458 >Monkey Kid so, LEGO is also going for the CCP money now?
>>514 >so, LEGO is also going for the CCP money now? They've been courting them with more Chinese influences in Ninjago, but with China staring to open up to the West, Lego is trying to really capitalise on their brand image (high quality, educational toy) by pushing a specifically tailored theme towards rich Chinese parents to drive home the perception of their brand. From a business perspective it makes sense. Personally the sets are alright but they don't interest me greatly, especially with the higher prices and the quite forgettable looking villains. How will the theme continue after the first wave? I assume from the wave lineup that it covers the entire first season of the show, but where next?

>>410 Here's the other two. Oh, and some gratuitous violence involving L-MO the monster truck and a happiness gun.
More of a modified build than a real MOC but parts like the ice cream salon were my own idea. Dolphin Point (6414) turned into a Hidden Side level. Both the lighthouse lamp and the ice cream salon are power color switches.
>>445 >Dolphin Point (6414) turned into a Hidden Side level. Amazing >Both the lighthouse lamp and the ice cream salon are power color switches. Ridiculously amazing
>>446 Thanks, I feel like I should just mass buy spooky green eyes and teeth, for some reason there's a lot of fun in modifying old sets. >TFW The Lego Group will never expand the Hidden Side mechanic to other themes in an "Around The World" kind of way >Could make a big ghostly pirate ship like The Flying Dutchman and have ghost pirates >Or a proper haunted Castle set with a Dullahan reference >Explorers theme with a ghostly jungle voodoo vibe
>>447 Now that would be cool

what went wrong?
Good question, actually. Was it the lack of mechs? The confusing mixture of knights and futuristic technology? Or maybe no one liked the combination of the app game gimmick? (Which flopped because people just scanned Nexo shield power images from the internet instead of buying the actual product). Either way I wasn't busy with lego when it was released, I would've loved the five-color-element thing and especially the collectible shields. I actually bothered buying them all (even the Forbidden Power ones) separately from vendors, I just need the Merlok powers now and potentially some non-polybag shields if they exist to finish my collection.

>>427 I didn't watch the show so I don't know how that fared but the second wave probably killed Nexo Knights. The first wave was cool lava demons and the second was electricity gargoyles. The colour scheme was pretty bad too, or at least in comparison to the first wave for both the heroes and villains (trans neon orange shoved everywhere didn't work so well). The third wave villains were much but they aren't castle-y enough to still keep the medieval futurist theme and they didn't seem to sell well either.
>>440 It's a goddamned pity, I would've loved to use both villain themes for BrikWars armies. Would be a pleasant change from the overused 'imperial empire' space marine trope. Damn it, themes like this should get a second chance.
