I would very much love to see more digital works on the Brothers Brick. There is a lot of amazing and creative digital artist's out there who just never see the spotlight.

I really like the build. Although I like builds made from real bricks more, I don't really mind if someone uses digital designer because bricks don't exist yet (in certain colours) or are not available to the builder. What makes a build a good build is how well it is executed, what kind of (new) techniques are used and how problems are solved. One can argue that in LDD, one needs not think too much about structural integrity, but I don't think that is a problem for this build in particular. If a build is only doable in LDD because of structural problems that would occur with real bricks, then I would consider it less.

As long as builds featuring nonexistent parts/colors are not being entered in competitions then I have no problem with them (though I'd prefer if they're mentioned in the post, such as in this case). And digital builds/renders are perfectly acceptable features. They still take time and skill - not everyone has the cash or space for bricks.

Purple Dave, Dont forget about when Planet Express became the city fire department and had a red ship.

Red would actually be perfect for the other paint job, when the kids took over and renamed it the Awesome Express. I've actually been entertaining the idea of building that someday in the far off distant future simply because the part selection is so much easier to work with. And probably a lot cheaper.

Imagine making a working one by utilising the pneumatic technic elements...



Comment on What would farm animals do, if they could do anything they wanted? by Håkan

This reminds me of a German children's book by Helme Heine, "Freunde", where a pig, mouse and rooster roam through the countryside on a bicycle.

Comment on LEGO Star Wars 75201 First Order AT-ST reveals The Last Jedi spoilers for no good reason [Review] by Chris

@Sputnik We are, and have always been, a site dedicated to the adults who enjoy LEGO. We make no pretense to judge a set as a child would. And in fact, we love most sets we review. This is a rare review where we feel LEGO designers haven't lived up to the high bar they themselves have made with other sets. And you rightly point out that we have biases. We do strive to minimize our biases, but you'll never find a review (here or anywhere else) that's completely unbiased.

"But really, the main point of the review is actually that it’s terrible, awful set — and it sounds like everyone is in agreement with me on that point. :-D" Well, I'm sorry to say but that is not true. I like the set and so does my kid. It depicts exactly the scene from the movie and it has excellent minifgs. Regarding the "awful" spring-loaded shooters I can assure you that most kids (you know, the ones that really matters for lego) prefere those to some kind of non-firing cannon detail crap. It could be better? Yes of course. A removable head would be better but that would have increased the price of the set even more. I really think that your (TBB) reviews are biased. In my view, you fail to see the appeal of certain sets for kids.

@Christopher: to be fair, as a fan I did actually see pics of this set before TBB reviewed it without seeking it, just browsing a few Lego-related blogs and such revealed the set. @Andrew, the fact is that this isn't much of a spoiler because that would assume that there is relevant plot in the scenes in question. But Christopher has a point. Just because it's in Lego form doesn't mean the movie will reproduce it exactly, so we need to watch what we as "fans" say online. After all, TLG presumably contractually abides by studio disclosures and vetting of content. The only reason sets contain spoilers is retroactive: in the Avengers Airport set, speculation about Giant Man was just that, speculation, until people did see Civil War and then discussed, openly, the set replicating the scene well-enough. Whereas, SW ships that are mere background have made whole sets, Ayesha in GotG2 never battled them as in the Revenge set, Gemora isn't anywhere to be found in the first scene of GotG2, Ultron didn't take part in the Hulk-Iron Man smack-down, Hydra was not a prominent aspect of Age of Ultron, etc., etc. This uncertainty keeps these things from being true "spoilers" until they are openly discussed by *us*. So warnings should persist. For how long? Not sure about that.
