Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

I just saw the sneak preview of LEGO Movie 2. Its probably number 3 behind LEGO Batman and LEGO Movie 1, but it has the best songs of the three (I never bothered seeing Ninjago).
Signatures are overrated.

Ninjago, I've not seen a single ep of the show let alone the movie, with the movie, all I seen is the trailer but it didn't say "WOW" to me, I put Lego Batman higher than the first Lego movie, the first one was good up until they broke the suspense of disbelief that this was a alterative world where people made of lego exist, I just didn't like seeing real humans in the film, it just derailed the plot for me and my enjoyment, while Lego Batman was a superior film, besides its Batman, what's not to like?

 

Anyway I've gotten two kits from the new movie line, the first is Unikitty & Warrior Lucy, (includes Emment), the other is: Battle Ready, Batman & Metalbeard. I like Batman's armour in his kit, Metalbeard is much less than before (clearly someone couldn't find all of his body parts) Unikitty is a reasonable build, of course there is the option of swapping faces, of course that kit comes with an alien creature, it has one eye, is bright green and blue but I have very little clue as to what it is beyond being an alien one eyed brick creature from SPACE!

Well kids aren't that into Duplo with the target age group, besides, where is the fun in building a alien from just Duplo when your into proper lego?

while i very much want to see the movie, i'm not nearly as interested in the sets (at least wave 1, thus far) as i was with the first movie. both spaceships are interesting, but i haven't been able to pull the trigger on them. how is the articulation on Unikitty???

I haven't gotten giant rage Unikitty, but it does look to have ball joints in a bunch of places.  Any articulation issues would be more along the lines of spikes blocking the range.

 

---Dave, got a bunch of Unikitty blindbags for $1 each on clearance at Walmart the other day...about worth that.

I'm not sure if I want many of the Movie 2 sets, but I really do like the Pop-Up Party Bus. Probably give the weird minifigs to my niece though.

 

Maybe get the Rex-Treme Offroader too (raptor quaaaaad), or the Escape Buggy.

The spikes aren't a major problem, they are on clip joints, thus move out of the way when you bend the legs, the spikes around the side of the head move along with the head which is on a ball joint, the paws can move up and down, for the most part, its feline body movement style, the tail can move about as that's on ball joints, the shoulder connections to the body are where the ball joints are, overall its a reasonable range of movement but no human arms out poses due to desgin but that's fine with me as its meant to be a four legged creature, you can do a full 360 on each leg as the spikes at the side of the head move about to be however you want them to be! The front shoulder pads are on clip joints so their not in the way, there's two spikes on the back of the body that can move up and down and cover where Emment can stand or someone else, say for example a lego Zombie!

 

Well hopefully tomorow, I'll do some major repairs to my big lego castle, its gotten a bit wrecked by my six year old nephew while I've been at work, the front needs serious repair, so its a scenic ruin, currently, plus I plan to add to large base boards I bought a while back to the two already in place, hopefully that make it a bit more stable, it will take a while to sort out as I get the walls repaired and the top part of the front gate fixed! I think my nephew is curious to how cullis the gate part works that or he obessed with destorying it as apart of whatever game he was playing, this includes taking the tresure out of the chests and leaving it scattered everywhere, I'm thinking of moving the chests over to my dark fortress and say the bad guys stole the tressure (he doesn't play with that model as its elsewhere and not in the room where he its aloud to go!)

Saw the new film.  Fell asleep through a couple of the musical numbers.  Thought it was bland overall.

Surprisingly, my favourite things were the Party Bus and General Mayhem Spaceship designs.

 

It was actually worse than Ninjago - Ninjago at least got a few chuckles out of me.

Saw The Lego Movie 2. It's still jump cutty, colorful, explosion but I think there's way more retro/adult references than the first one (would kids know Bruce Willis from Die Hard? Or Vicki Vale?).

It follows the first movie's sensitive part. With the catchy and not-catchy songs, I did sorta, almost tear up a bit, even though I knew that's where it was going.

I haven't really collected much LEGO lately, but I have had the Friends Tree House from last year (year 1 of the reboot) on display in my room for about 8-9 months. I needed to clear up some space so I made a few tiiiiny modifications to the build. Mostly it was to get rid of the rope ladder.

 

XB4h2T7.jpg

 

Spoiler

 

It was really fun to fidget around with the set for the first time in forever (though I lost two of the flowers under my bookcase already) and photographing it was a blast.

 

As for new sets;

  1. There's a bunch of Friends stuff I want, but that's always the case
  2. I also want the Disney Princess Jasmine and Aladdin's Palace Adventures set, but it seems quite costly for something with very little build (it does take up quite a bit of space though). It's the only way to get Minidoll Aladdin, unfortunately.
  3. I want the boy minidoll from that giant spaceship party set from the second movie but there's no way I'm paying full price for a spaceship (which isn't really my sort of thing).

Found the Ninjago Dragon Pit on clearance for $50, and even though I'm trying to stop buying LEGO, I decided this one was too good of a deal to pass up.

I was initially going to use it as a main gate to Apocalypseburg, but after my less than stellar impression of TLM2, I may end up passing on that one all together.
