Re: LEGO bulk sales policy update related to artist Ai Weiwe

It's an interesting policy change to be sure. It's so funny how legalese can work, since they now CAN safely "support" (NOT endorse ;-) ) his artistic expression with impunity, whereas before the wording was such that it implied their endorsement of whatever work was being created.

Re: LEGO bulk sales policy update related to artist Ai Weiwe

It seems to me that, if the policy change isn't directly because of his situation, it's at least actually in his favor. Previously, it was prohibited for him to participate in the bulk purchase program because of the political nature of his work and the stringent nature of their policy. Now, with th...

@doodlebird - thanks for the warning, but the image appears to be from a post originally on The Brothers Brick. I'd imagine they would have already been contacted first if it were an issue. I know there were some "no photo" signs at TFNY last year, and when I asked if that was truly the case, I was ...

Re: 2016 Nuremberg German Toy Fair - LEGO Set Pictures Revea

The Spider-man sets are awesome! Finally, White Tiger! Scarlet Spider! Ultimate Spider-girl! Kraven the Hunter! I also love that we're getting Goblins of both the Green and Hob varieties.

I believe that's Captain Stacy, Gwen Stacy's father, in the boat.

Re: [TnB] Review 75827 Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters

I would like to see a photo when you are done next to a modular building to compare size. I have that shot ready to go - I also went back and took a series of pics showing how it is possible to park the ECTO-1 in the first floor and open/close the doors, and what is necessary to achieve this. Nice ...

Re: [TnB] Review 75827 Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters

Great review so far. Can you fit Ecto1 in the garage and still be able to open the garage doors? yes it can. you just have to move a few items in the ground floor away. nothing major though I have a few pics in part 2 that go into how well the ECTO-1 fits in the garage, but I wouldn't say it's "not...

Too late to the blue baseplate party, but I was going to suggest using 16x16 blue plates instead - and even throw in some with islands!
