Why the new thread? The previous thread was 2000 posts off 20K.

Also, why isn't it in Community?

Probably to capitalize on Batman hype. Also I think it's kosher for new threads to hang out for a bit to get views.

Another fantastic OT for Lego. Easily my favourite OT on all of GAF.

Back from Batman and home with Clayface Splat Attack! Pictures dont do the set justice, can honestly say I had lots of fun building him, and prolly just as much fun playing afterwards. Definitely the best set in the theme/wave.

Yup. Usually get a tad bit of time before being sent to Community. And stuff in the old OT was a bit out of date.

Edit: and with that, banished to community with a quickness. Much quicker than last time it seems.

Woo new OT!

I wasn't going to, but I caved in and bought the Balloon Escape.
Sucks I have to wait 1 1/2 week until the movie is released here.

Don't know how I got that sticker perfectly placed on first try.

Ahhhhh, I though that each thread stays in the active foruns for a fixed period of time before moving it to Community. That would be useful to lure inocent bypassengers to Lego adiction.

Subbed. OT5 was my first foray into the Lego OT. I've invested more into Lego since then.

To be honest, none of the licensed pirate ships (POTC, LOTR, Lego Movie) really worked for me. Hoping this looks good.

So I'm going to try my hand at lenticular mosiac, I've ordered the parts and now I have to hope and wait I figured it all out correctly as parts weren't cheap to pull it off. It's gonna 4x4 32x32 baseplates, so 128x128 studs/16 baseplates

Yes, was waiting for this to finally place my Arctic Roller set + 5 Batman CMF's.

Now let's hope I don't get too much doubles (I'd rather have none)

Hmmm, I could order Moana from S@H along with some parts, but I would need another set to reach the Batman promo. And then it feels like I'm paying more for some set I was going to wait on. So I think I'll just order the parts, get Moana locally (if I'm paying retail for that anyway) and keep waiting to get others.

I'm making Maze at the moment, and wondering if anyone's produced a parts list detailing those parts that are reused between the two maze designs - i.e. if I were to purchase those parts, I'd be able to have both designs made simultaneously?

800 pieces/$100 for Black Pearl and 1000/$110 for Queen Anne's Revenge I think.

Ok that's more reasonable than expected; obviously a bit more these days - just wish it was the Pearl!

856/$99 and 1180/$119 to be more precised. But I expected this to be over $150.

I've been umming and ahhing about claiming some lost childhood with the "Adventurers" sets for a few months now. I'd spend hours fawning over the Egyptian themed sets specifically as a kid, and today these two came up on an amazing deal!




However I feel like this may be a rather expensive and slippery slope (especially as this line ran for a long time)!

Just noticed the Lego Ideas Blog had an update friday explaining the results are a bit late. They mention circumstances outside of their control, so I asume the wining set has a license they had to procure.

They also say they have 'good news', so maybe there are multiple sets that got approved this time?

Oh interesting, hope for Iron Giant.

Isn't it kinda strange PoTC is only getting one set? I mean I guess Simpsons only got one big set at a time but PoTC was a theme before. Maybe it didn't do well as a theme but they think a ship will sell well enough.

Yep, same here. Trying to plan my Friday purchases to get two of the Batman polys.

On that note, apparently Walmart in the US has the 30523 Joker Battle Training on shelves.

I haven't seen it in Canada yet.

I think Iron Giant is in the next, next approval period, so it will sadly only be decided in a few months (around may/june I think?). I'm placing my bets on Voltron actually.

I'm trying to get two as well. I suppose I could always get the Ferrari F40 that I've held off buying and maybe the Scuttler.

That's what I went with too! Considered the double-pack with the Lowrider since it'd make that second vehicle 45 but in the end I passed, just wanted to spend as little over the limit as I could because I'm being cheap, reckon I'll get the Lowrider cheaper in the future with a bit of luck.

It's already shipped, super-fast service from LEGO!

You need the Ferrari. It is really great. But not as good as the Beetle.

And yes, you need the Scuttler.
