  1. I got together with my Dad yesterday for his birthday, and he gave me this from when I was a kid. He specified, "it's not for you to sell, it's to put together with your girls." Box, instructions, and all parts. I spent HOURS playing with this set back in '84/'85.

  2. Someone posted on Nextdoor that they were moving and put a bunch of stuff in their driveway for garbage/donation. They said feel free to come by and take whatever. One of the pics had two skateboards in it, and I wanted to get them for my kids. Got there 25 mins after the post and as I pulled up, I saw some lady grabbing pretty much everything and putting it next to her car. All the stuff wouldn't even fit in her Jetta, but she was selfish about it. Anyways, I saw the skateboards in her car and was bummed out. I decided to look anyway and lucked out on a box of Lego that was sitting under anot

  4. Because she's American and there are Americans suffering. They just happen to live in Texas. She has a platform, plenty of followers, and as a politician, can wield it and inform her supporters how to help those in need effectively. One of the rare instances of where social media power can be pushed towards something worthwhile. Why did I give money to TX charities this morning? Because they're fricking suffering and are in desperate need. Why do Americans donate a lot during natural disasters in other states? Because they do what they can when people ask for help across state lines.

  11. MBS Cantina. They did a really good job at balancing build, display and play features much better than AoH and Cloud City. Only 3 stickers on the cantina itself (these really should have been printed) which I did not apply the rest are used on the vehicles. It is not as repetitive as it may look as they use different elements and/or build techniques for similar aspects instead of just doing X2 in the instructions. I give it 8 out of 10.

  14. I didn't buy a Lego set today, I bought an empty Lego box. Specifically, I bought the box for 10182 Café Corner. Saw it come up on eBay for ~£30 and pounced, since these are a) as rare as hen's teeth and b) if you can find one it'll be worth well over £100 (the only one on Bricklink is about £270 not including shipping). I do actually have a Café Corner which previously had no box, so that's nice. Also on the theme of rare bits for expensive modulars, I managed to bag a set of instructions for 10190 Market Street for ~£50. Again a very good find as the typical price would probably b

  17. With the familiar disclaimer that I am not a lawyer, I will add that this set in particular is skirting a very fine line, if not crossing it. In the U.S. at least. It certainly shares a very strong resemblance to the Alien Chestburster, which as noted above was designed and created by the artist HR Giger for the movie, originally owned by 21st Century Fox I believe and now Disney. Copyrights for graphic characters (which this would fall under as a primarily visual character and recognisable by distinctive visual characteristics) are good for a minimum 50 years, if it is trademarked this can be

The Unitron sets will most likely go in the personal collection. Star Hawk II 1789 Space Station Zenon 1793 Celestial Forager 6896 Beacon Tracer 6833 Sharks crystal Cave 6190 (missing sub)

  19. I haven't really ever posted to vote for a LEGO Ideas project, but I would like to see this one happen. Jaws is my favorite movie and I watch it fanatically. I have seen a few up for submission over time, but this one seems like it may have a chance to get put up for consideration. Personally I would love to see a bigger version with even more detail, but this is fun. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/390cf845-d64c-44fd-844b-b30fd42d5f12

  20. Lepin was around far longer than 2 years before LEGO took action against them. That really doesn't matter. If you can't understand that, then we can't help you understand. Which means you are just trolling at this point. The argument is going in circles because you are being obtuse. I'm two seconds away from shutting this thread down.

  21. Leaving it up to the government to make sure of your safety in situations like this is probably a mistake no one should make. 99% of the population is woefully unprepared for 48 hours without electricity. There are solutions. Government isn't one of them.

  24. This sums it up well. There really isn’t anything more to say on this topic at this point, that hasn’t already been said. It’s getting hot in here, with no new ground to cover, so I’m locking the thread for now.

  25. I absolutely love Mark. Geez Luke has been my guy for 44 years. But Mark is super political and if it wasn’t for my love of Luke I’d have completely ignored him years ago. As others have said, it’s best to keep your mouth shut about politics online. This is definitely a double standard, and not surprising. It’s definitely a virtue signaling. We’ve seen it before from Disney. Edit to add: not saying her opinion was correct. But consistency is key. Either cancel all or ignore all.

  26. On a somewhat related note, I gave the small orange technic corvette to the father of a buddy of mine who was going through chemo. This man was in his late 70s. He was blown away by the engineering of that simple technic set. He had no idea. He loved building puzzles and I told him Lego was just like a 3D puzzle with instructions. I then loaned him my big technic wheel loader 42030 to build. He made quick work of that set, disassembled it and downloaded the alternate build online to build the second model. I know Lego is working on appealing to the adult market but I think they are missing a m

  29. The pictures you've posted show that you are wrong. The real vehicles clearly do not match the Lego models. Shapes, headlights, paint schemes, crane winch position, etc. All different. The F1 car looks like a generic representation of an F1 car from about 2010-2013. F1 cars (and LMP1) are designed within narrow regulatory constraints, so of course they look similar. All F1 cars from different manufacturers, using wholly unique chassis and engines, still look similar because of that. However, the Lego model clearly is not of any Ferrari F1 car (or any specific car at all). The colour scheme is

  32. Pedro Pascal and Mark Hamill have called Trump supporters Nazis before and faced no backlash whatsoever. This is a double standard. Hell, Disney heavily minimized John Boyega on the Chinese posters for TFA and thanked the CCP in the credits. This is just virtue-signaling from a PR firm.

  42. My biggest concern with all of this is how strong the groupthink culture is. Even if you side with the groupthink, but not strong enough with it, you are attacked. It starts in the school system where kids are trained to take tests and recite verbatim, versus learning how to think critically and how to survive in the world. This is probably the biggest reason why we are homeschooling our kids. Teaching them to think for themselves, to be open minded, and not just spout what they are told to spout. Also, common core is totally incompatible with how real life skills work. My goal is to ens
