>VIDIYO actually has something resembling lore which reminds me of Trolls: World Tour with different locations with each their own music genre >Only six of the genres are elaborated upon, the other four are mentioned in the app's bandmate list. >Hidden Side has ghost characters you can unlock by playing the Ghost Mode in-game, including the bosses shown on set boxes (Playing Ghost Mode is free and doesn't require having a set btw, it's actually more fun than being a Ghost Hunter). All of them have personal little descriptions on their profiles, like how they died or what they do after their death. This includes references to the places you see in the sets and cartoon.
>>1044 Very nice analysis anon >>1050 I wonder if they will elaborate on VIDIYO lore. I've seen some of the Hidden Side character profiles and some of them are really dark for a Lego theme.
>>1044 Another kind of division exists in UFO >Main aliens appear only in the bigger UFO sets (the ones with saucer parts) >Red robots pilot smaller or detatchable aircraft >Blue robots pilot land vehicles

>>1096 I love when LEGO puts in little easter eggs and references like that. I want Tony Stark's Sakaarian Iron Man almost purely for Tony's torso alone. (Also, mech parts.) Unrelated note, but when it comes to LEGO and lore there's two types of universes: >Non-Brick Built Shows that act like normal fiction, the only actual LEGO thing being the characters. This includes shows like Ninjago, Nexo Knights, Monkie Kid, City Adventures. >Brick-Built >Things are made out of LEGO and it's treated as normal. Objects tend to break apart into bricks & pieces, characters can detach their hairpieces (on purpose or accidentally) and the main characters have the ability to build things out of LEGO parts. (Thanks to the LEGO Movie I assume these characters are so-called 'Master Builders'.) Things like The LEGO Movie franchise (including the Ninjago Movie, hence the differences with the show) and licensed shows like Marvel/DC/Jurassic Park count under this.

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?

>>942 Gave this a go. Turns out less is more when it comes to using the medium. Will post photos of my second attempt tomorrow.
>>1107 Forgot to take photos but its interesting to note that PVA glue works perfectly fine (though it should be applied with something other than a brush or else it leaves streaks) and an inkjet printer works fine. Thinking of buying a LaserJet printer and trying it out as the ink smudges a bit.

I believe nobody else on the internet is aware of this info, but I stumbled across what appeared to be proof that Knights Kingdom II was meant to have an animated series to accompany it.
>>1146 This pretty much shows that KKII is the most important theme post-2000 as it lays out the blueprint for the approach Lego would take to following themes: -card game -fleshed out lore with named characters and a timeline -a group of colour-coded heroes with specific powers/abilities -comic series -book series -animated series You can see all of these elements in Ninjago which is the biggest System theme released. These probably came from Bionicle which was an immediate success and the failing TLG reused the core elements of this in their attempt at turning the company around

>>548 Happy to help. Are you the anon that asked for them? If there's any other themes you want doing I can go through and have a look.
>>549 No, but Lego magazine comics are comfy
>>558 Do you want any other comics from a particular theme? I have magazines from 2003-20 and it wouldn't be a problem to scan them.
>>560 If you've got anything from Nexo Knights that'd be great. I missed out on that whole theme.

Kicking it off with the classic that started it all.

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.

I think its popularity so many years after relies on the fans growing up and reading up on the storyline. It's so rich that you have to appreciate all the effort that's been put into it and the Bionicle universe is fleshed out really well.

>figured it wouldn't matter
I'm not really bothered by it; if you think that your post merits its own thread then by all means create your own thread. Now that I think about it, this may have been better off as its own thread because we've been able to have a discussion about it.

I'm going to write a thesis that will make bionicle books part of obligatory education. Wish me luck.
This is but the beginning. By 2100 Bionicle will become compulsory religious study.

Leaks/Rumours/Upcoming themes Legoman 03/11/2020 (Wed) 20:35:06 No.320 [Reply] [Last]
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

>>1085 >>1086 How badly IS Vidiyo doing, like are there actual stats instead of rumors and a couple of entitled AFOLs cutting boxes? Do I honestly need to check the app to see how active things are? And take a good look. Two genres/factions are getting normal beatboxes (Monster Metal & Fantasy Folk). I see five of the six formerly released beatbox genres are getting stages, is there a Tropicon one that isn't leaked yet? It's not too farfetched to predict a third wave with Discowboy & Samurap beatboxes at the very least.
>>1087 As far as I know there's no stats or anything, but bear in mind that even Brickset published an article about Vidiyo possibly flopping. https://brickset.com/article/58772/has-vidiyo-flopped-already Though I think its not too hard to see why a ridiculously overpriced, badly marketed theme is flopping already. Amazon discounted them from day one and stores have been discounting them recently, and it doesn't help sales that rumours of box cutting are going round. The app suppsodely suffers like every other Lego app - barely works, heavy on space and memory, only works on the latest phones, and the AR gimmick just doesn't integrate nicely, which is yet another nail in Vidiyo's coffin. I'm not holding my breath for a wave 3.
>>1088 Counterpoint: The way they had wave 2 ready and the amount of content released in it, I think they split up their originally prepared product into three pre-made waves to extend it as much as possible. There's apparently going to be an in-game store outfit update this Saturday and people still seem to be making videos too, so the app's not as dead as everyone proclaims.
>>1089 So each wave is like a DLC of sorts? I guess we'll see this Saturday if the app is as dead as everyone says it is.
>>1090 >DLC Sort of, except it's more testing the waters and extending the product's life for as long as possible by not releasing one huge wave of sets at once. (Imagine being a kid and trying to collect it all, ouch.) If they can make it until after the COVID situation is over, it'll be a blessing for them.

We changed Willy Legoman 03/23/2021 (Tue) 07:51:23 No.1036 [Reply]
So, after we received a lot of critics we decided to steer to this version of Willy Wonka and we made this final. We won't change it anymore. Do you agree? https://ideas.lego.com/projects/f37ee26a-8944-44e1-a29c-573f51bfcbbb
>>1036 I don't get it, did they use Gene Wilder instead of Johnny Depp's designs? Honestly, JD's funny but he looked like a damn queerio. Gene's design is superb and it really sells you on the whole "crazed, eccentric manchild" look. I think it's the garish colors that really make you feel unsafe next to him.
I think changing to Wilder's version of Wonka was for the best; he's much more iconic. While I don't particularly like licensed themes Charlie and the Chocolate Factory certainly lends itself nicely to Lego. Good luck getting 10,000 supporters, you're almost there!

Your match against britfeel ended 0 - 0, though you did field the first fully modeled team in Cup history. I staged this image after the match. Since you were the "away" team for this one, you wouldn't have seen it in the stream

>>937 Here's the version you got in your last match. Someone had rightly pointed out that The Good Guy and Glows In The Dark! had their models imported incorrectly, so that was fixed in time. A full roster of minifigures, Bonkles, Wojtus, and THAT ONE FUCKING PIECE WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU PIECE OF SHIT.
>>947 Haha thanks anon.
