  1. Two of our more popular threads are "What LEGO set(s) did you buy today?" and "What LEGO set(s) did you sell today?" These threads are filled with great information. But we all know LEGO bricks are about "building" LEGO sets and models, so why shouldn't we talk about it on this site as well? I mean, many LEGO sets that are fantastic builds are also investment winners, so why shouldn't people share some of their experiences of build and set quality that might affect LEGO set values, either positively or negatively? Let us know what you built today and your overall thoughts on the set. Don't forget to leave more in depth reviews in our LEGO SET REVIEWS section...
  2. I've bought about 150+lbs of bulk LEGO over the last couple of years. Some lots more organized than others. So I have grabbed a few buckets and started to sort to sell or keep. I'm finishing up a Toy Story 3 7597 Western Train Chase to get rid of. Missing most of the figures. It'll be 98% complete with a few pieces missing or substituted. Next up I have this. Most likely a keeper. Batman 7888. Missing book 1. The Icecream Truck is somewhere. I remember seeing most of it with the stickers applied. I think I have the minifigures. This was from the very 1st bulk lot I got on EBay and last big one. I had no idea the value of 7888 at the time. I probably paid too much, $500 shipped for 73lbs with lots of minifigures (over 100) and about 10lbs of instructions. It was a mom who was unloading her sons Lego. Definitely wasn't picked through. Lots of Technic, SW, Agents, City and Indiana Jones. She even sent me free another 8lbs in a box months later which has mostly pieces from 7682 Shanghai Chase and 7628 Peril in Peru. Anyways, I'd like to hear what LEGO you all are piecing together from your bulk..
  3. Hello all! I am not new to collecting and playing with Lego at all - always have and always will, especially now that my son LOVES anything Lego! So after talking to my son and doing a little investigating I figured we would start a little side business! My son was always asking when new Lego Minifigs came out so i would have to look them up or see what came with which sets. I figured, lets start a MiniFig Subscription for people! You choose between different themes and how many MiniFigs you want delivered to your door each month! It's a pretty cool idea - what do you guys think?
  4. The Walmart Lego section in my town is pathetic. I'm talking 8x10 at the most. Just 20 miles away at a Walmart there is an outstanding collection. Both are large stores. Do the store managers control this?
  5. Just realized we don't have a thread on this. Here's some info via Delta Customs, via TheBrickFan: First, Wonder Woman movie sets: Second, Thor: Ragnarok info:
  6. I didn't see a dedicated thread for this set, so I thought I might strike up a little conversation. I have not seen much discussion on this gem of a set. I personally love it! It's an amazing display and a fun build. It hit $75 before Christmas at one point, and now it is there again, sitting at $75.20. It's been creeping downwards. How low will it go? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CVGV5H2/ref=ox_sc_mini_detail?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

  11. We can use this topic to share pictures and stories of "official" Lego prototypes (aka sketches) of products that were produced or not. Please cite the source if using info from other places. I discovered two sets of pictures today on eurobricks. The picture below is of a larger 1) Speeder Bike and 2) Tie Advanced model and was in a early 2000s Lego magazine. The official release of the UCS 10175 Vader Tie Advanced set debuted in 2006 / 2007. http://www.brickpicker.com/bpms/set.cfm?set=10175-1 Here is another pretty famous prototype of Yavin IV that appeared in DK's Star Wars Lego: The Visual Dictionary.
  12. Please support this cute Lego Piper on Lego Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/... It is based off of the short film that won the Academy Award for Best Short Film (Animated). So please support this project on Lego Ideas so that if it reaches 10,000 supporters, it may become a real Lego set!
  13. the latest lego ideas project to reach 10k votes has a very sad story to it. there is a good chance it will be picked regardless of the MOC designer's illness. it's a sound design that's not over complicated (elements, cost to market, etc...) and promotes better health (sun exposure in this case). https://ideas.lego.com/projects/155367 https://ideas.lego.com/projects/155367/updates
  14. As with most Lego promotions, you must spend a required amount of money to get the 'free' item. Many folks also use promotion stacking on http://shop.lego.com which is the process of spending just enough money to earn multiple promotional items. After waiting too long to order products at shop.lego.com to obtain the popular 40252 Mini VW Beetle promotion (sold-out online), I visited my local Lego mall store. This store had current promotional sets available including 40252 and the 40265 LEGO Friends Tic Tac Toe set. The purchase requirements were to spend $50+ for the VW Beetle set and $20+ in Friends items for the Tic Tac Toe polybag. Both are popular items and make nice child Easter gifts (especially for my 2 children). While paying, I was told my $62 ($21 of that for Friends items) worth of Lego products wasn't enough to cover both promotional items. The cashier told me their store were given strict rules to enforce around promotional items and I needed to pick one. I ended up going home with the 40252 Mini VW Beetle set. After arriving home, I double-checked if Lego's web site still allowed promotion stacking. It did after added one $59.99 Friends set in my cart. Both Tic Tac Toe and City Helicopter (replacement for the sold-out VW) promotional items were in my cart. I then read a 40252 Mini VW Beetle review where MeganL from brickset mentioned she was able to get both promotions by "doubling up" at a Lego store. http://brickset.com/article/27432 To further determine whether my experience was a mistake or an unannounced in-store change, I contacted Lego customer phone support today. The nice representative informed me that other customers have called with the same question after being denied at their store. At least one store manager told this same representative she was given rules to deny promotions stacking. Her customers could only receive both promotions if they spent $20+ on Friends items plus another $50+ on more Friends or another theme. Please let us know how your local Lego store is currently handling promotion stacking and if it's different than past months. Disclaimer: Not all U.S stores may follow the new rule regarding promotion stacking. Lego's online website, https://shop.lego.com/ automatically stack promotions in the shopping cart before order check-out. Additionally, some stores haven't allowed promotion stacking since their grand opening. View full blog article
  15. The official trailer was released. Looks good. One of my favorite moments was when Pete's pal Ned dropped a 10188 (or is it a 75059. Who knows anymore. I can't tell by looking for the extra cheese slope.) I'm sure we'll be hearing about Lego sets soon enough.

  18. Hey everyone, Cannot believe I just stumbled across this site and it's probably the best site I have come across in a long time. Amazing how many resources are here. My story with Lego is interesting, I had hundreds of them as a kid and then suddenly stopped collecting... My sets got all jumbled into large bins and I put them away. I even think one bin was donated (grrrr). Fast forward to me now (age 27) and I have been in the collection game for awhile (comics, art, prints, action figures, etc.... just not Legos) I love SDCC and love the thrill of getting exclusives, but for some reason I didn't ever go back to my Legos until the past couple of months. I have pulled all the bins out of storage and started organizing each set and figuring out what pieces I need to replace to complete some of them. I was collecting a lot from early 2000's like the first Star Wars, Adventure and Ninja sets. I do have a few old castle sets though that I am excited to organize. Now I find this amazing resource for investing and it seems it is all coming together. I know there was plenty of money to be made back then and 2017 is only that much more popular, but I'd still like to give this a shot. Looking forward to meeting people and re-exploring my long lost childhood nostalgia. Cheers! Scott
  19. Here is a new light for lighting kit for lego Tower Bridge 10214 from liteupblock. This lighting kit is powered by USB with this kit they will give a 3-in-1 USB cable.
  20. I wonder, as EU citizen, and the Netherlands in particular, the benefits of exporting lego to other nations in the EU or abroad, like a hobby trader with few amounts It seems a lot of duty fees are set, not to mention shipping costs. Is there any trade route that doesnt eat up all your profit right away? I question if the differences in retailer prices can be exploited in this way. , so one should wait for articles to get real collectors value to be worth of exporting? sincerly CZ
  21. Vote this bad boy in: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/165581 Please! 😋 My fifth attempt on building the best modular building I could. This time, a corner building, with a huge diagonal façade, and two very easily differentiated buildings: one royal blue and aqua with 1x1 tiles sticked on the wall and the other white, royal blue and teal. You can probably see this, but this was done in the purpose of it being hyper-ultra-mega colorful. Crafted with 2994 bricks, and includes 5 minifigures. I'm pretty sure it would stand about 30-32cm tall (12-12'5 inches). Some more images: Close up of white/teal façade. Notice the nice tree, and sculpture design on top of the building. The other façade. Beautiful gradient upwards! My whole collection. Kinda shocking how earthy the ones on the right look, and how happy the ones on the left look! Hope to see you sometime soon on my project's comment section and supporter list! 😄

  24. note: we can use this topic to save as the lego set placeholder for the rumored Slave 1 appearance in the film, "Rogue One : A Star Wars Story". Not much is currently known but a combination of being time for a non-UCS Slave 1 refresh and the picture below, tends to make many (including myself) believe a new version is coming. the pic below is from the "2016 International Toy Fair" in Nuremberg and written in German.
  25. http://www.wsj.com/articles/lego-restructures-with-eye-to-expansion-1481016526 Lego Restructures With Eye to Expansion Growth and globalization create need for new Lego Brand Group, owner says ENLARGE Lego CEO Jørgen Vig Knudstorp will head a new entity, Lego Brand Group, as the company restructures. PHOTO: REUTERS By ELLEN EMMERENTZE JERVELL Updated Dec. 6, 2016 6:39 a.m. ET 3 COMMENTS OSLO—The Danish family behind the Lego plastic-brick empire is shaking up the company’s ownership structure, elevating an executive widely credited for rescuing the toy maker from the brink of bankruptcy to manage all-things Lego and explore new business ventures. The Kirk Kristiansen family said Lego A/S Chief Executive Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, who has transformed the venerable Danish company into a global toys-and-entertainment force, will step aside at the end of the year. In his new role, Mr. Knudstorp will lead an umbrella entity called the Lego Brand Group, which will oversee the family’s 75% stake in the toy maker, as well as interests in the Legoland theme parks and in an education business promoting the use of Lego toys in schools. Chief Operations Officer Bali Padda, a Briton, is appointed CEO of the toy company—its first non-Dane boss since Lego’s foundation in 1932. The shake-up comes as Lego faces challenges to maintain the explosive growth it displayed in recent years in Europe and the U.S., while conquering new markets such as China and India. With 18.500 employees, Lego is in a two-horse race with Mattel Inc. of the U.S. for the number-one seat as the world’s largest toy company. Lego posted a surprise drop in first-half profit to 3.49 billion Danish kroner ($499 million) in September, saying flattening sales in the U.S. had dented earnings. Still, first-half revenue climbed 11% to 15.7 billion kroner. Mr. Knudstorp, who has said he planned to stay with Lego for the rest of his professional career, will work at the Lego Brand Group alongside Thomas Kirk Kristiansen, a fourth-generation owner of Lego. “With our recent growth and globalization come new and exciting opportunities for the brand, and we establish the Lego Brand Group to look into these new opportunities,” Mr. Kirk Kristiansen said Tuesday. Ahead of his promotion to the Lego Brand Group, Mr. Knudstorp, a former McKinsey & Co. consultant, had earned the reputation of a turnaround king. When he arrived at Lego in 2004, 35 years old and the first nonfamily member at the helm, the company had been struggling financially for years. Its customers, children, were forsaking its iconic bricks for digital games. Mr. Knudstorp sold off the Legoland theme parks and reduced the catalog of Lego bricks available to the company’s designers. He also licensed the Lego name to film studios, creating a new revenue stream. Thomas Kirk Kristiansen, who is set to lead the Lego Brand Group with Mr. Knudstorp, in April succeeded his father, Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, as vice chairman of Lego A/S and chairman of the family charity Lego foundation. In 2004, the senior Mr. Kirk Kristiansen was the one handing the company baton to outsider Mr. Knudstorp. He later also acquired other family members’ interests in the company, concentrating the Lego ownership in his hands and those of his three children.
