    Price per piece is such a terrible measure of value, I get that people use it because there isn’t an easy numeric value that works but really it’s pointless to shout about price per piece and the way the front page discussion was going, closing discussion was a good idea.

    Yeah. Sets with lots of minifigures often have higher price per parts, technic sets with loads of pins have lower price per part, basic brick sets have lower, etc.

    One number does not fit all. 9p per part can be terrible value, whereas 15p per part can be great value. It depends on what the parts are.

    With the lack of minifigures, I wouldn't compare this to a licensed set, unless it is being compared to a licensed set with no minifigures or printed parts in.

    Dear oh dear!  Just caught up with the front page comments debacle.  All that fuss because someone doesn't like a Lego set.

    Kudos to @CapnRex101 and @Huw for maintaining their dignity.  If this was my site I'd have made a big thing of hoofing that particular user so far away that Google wouldn't be able to find them.

    I'm all for differences of opinion, but everyone has a choice in the way they voice them.

    That said - crikey that's ugly!

    I too had the Corgi -- one of the favorite toys from my youth.  Haven't bought this yet but it looks close to Technic figure scale.  I'm hoping the ejection seat has enough omph to lift a Technic fig!

    Do people really think they have the right to accuse the site of being less than honest, with no evidence other than that the site's opinion differs from their? It's no different from the idiots who accused reviewers of being bribed by Disney to give The Last Jedi good reviews.

    We're living in an era where people feel entitled to create their own truths and dismiss the real truths as "Fake News" - from anti-vaxxers to climate change deniers - it's all a symptom of a way of thinking where evidence doesn't matter :(

    @Aleydita

    First off, an apology.  It was hypocritical of me to complain about the way you expressed yourself and then be rude about you myself.  I shouldn't have done it, so sorry for that.

    Secondly, I haven't been around Brickset as long as many, but I've certainly been here long enough to know that everyone who posts a front page review, from regulars like Huw and Chris to the occasional contributor like MeganL will provide a review based on their own opinion rather than any perceived pressure from TLG.  The fact is, Chris provided two things: a factual description of the set, and additionally his thoughts on it.  Anybody who was considering spending over £100 on a set will take the former and make their own mind up as to whether they want to buy it or not, probably together with information from other sources and for those who live close enough to a shop, after 'seeing it in the plastic'.

    And one other thing to remember.  This is a site for fans of Lego.  There's a good chance that most of us will be well disposed to a set, particularly one with links to an iconic film series and a series of pretty cool features.

    Personally I think that while the features are novel, the set fails as a reflection of a beautiful car and I won't be picking it up.  But as a fan of Technic - which many Lego fans find anything from 'odd' to 'not proper Lego' - I get that we all like different things.

    You and I didn't like the DB5.  Chris did.

    And the world keeps turning.

    No point in falling out with a really nice bunch of people over it.  Even if we are a bit cliquey sometimes...

    ;o)

    Are you in the right Forum?  Either that, or 'toxic' means something very different in your vocabulary.

    And you may want to update your references.  Nobody knows what Morse code is.

    I have to say, I quite like the set.

    It's not perfect but at the end of the day this is Lego were talking about here and most of the fun comes from the building.

    If I wanted a totally accurate model of 007's DB5 there are numerous places I can buy one in varying different sizes but that's not the hobby I chose.

    There are far worse sets out there and personally I wouldn't give you two pennies for the old VW Beetle ( #10187 ) as to me, parts of it look like a left over level from qbert (anothe reference for the over 40's) & when #10152 came out, comparisons were made and I seem to remember lots of negative comments about the new one looking like a Citroen 2CV but it seems to be doing alright.

    Any Lego set is never going to be perfect just because of the restrictions placed on the parts available but better that than how things got when Lego had free reign to produce an endless supply of alternative parts, as last time that nearly didn't end well.

    Oh give it a rest, for pity's sake. As a member of the Brickset staff I can vouch for the fact that that there's absolutely no pressure whatsoever to write positive reviews, ever. Chris' recommendation was entirely genuine - he enjoyed the build, and said so. I get that you hate the set, but to accuse him of dishonesty because he happens to have a different view is pretty shabby IMHO.
    Oh come off it, in an attempt to counter my questioning of a positive review for such a clearly naff set, Huw himself attempted to say the review was negative, yet somehow, despite highlighting just a single positive, shut off comments before attempting to explain how a single positive could justify a recommendation. Like I said in the comments, how bad does a set have to be before they'll refuse to recommend? Capn gave me two example where they have refused to do so, the first because of perceived poor value, fair enough but that's an abstract consideration given the different prices in different domains, and everyone having a different amount of disposable income. The second because Huw didn't know the source material and didn't feel able to comment either way.

    Has there ever been a case where Brickset has received a set for free from TLG and refused to endorse it based on design values alone?

    I get the Brickset / TLG mafia will jump on dissent but the response to my critique astounds me. It wasn't a personal attack (yet I've had to bat away a few since), rather an observation that the site is determined to protect its relationship with TLG come what may. You could argue this is a positive thing, especially for us consumers of the site, but I'd argue this damages their integrity.

    I mentioned Hoth Bricks in my comments - they too received the set for free and were able to pre-prepare a review. They were pretty scathing. They also, unlike Brickset, always arrange a giveaway for the products they receive from Lego, thus removing any suggestion that they need to remain on TLG's good side for fear of losing such freebies.

    The New Elementary, an otherwise excellent blog, failed even to mention that the finished product didn't even look like the source material, something virtually everyone else who has seen the set has commented on. Yet their full-on endorsement somehow means that Brickset's recommendation is entirely valid with absolutely no room for debate.

  • AleyditaAleydita BelgiumMember Posts: 781
    I'd like to add - look at Blocks magazine, they have a pretty close relationship with TLG, often gifted exclusive access to designers, etc. Yet they've never shied away from saying a set is truly terrible.

    It simply isn't credible that (virtually) every set Brickset reviews is considered worthy of recommendation - something I've thought for a while and the 007 review confirmed it beyond doubt for me.

    Two of those weren't provided by TLG (which presumably leaves room to voice genuine dissatisfaction), another was from 2017 and The Hoth set is from 2016! Seriously, that took you 5 minutes? Doubtful. Again, compare Brickset's almost universally positive reviews to other sites that don't do the readers a disservice. Again, referring to Blocks magazine, who rarely give a set 90% plus and have regularly given sets less than 50%.

    I don't understand why this is so controversial. Almost everyone can see the 007 set is terribad. Even Huw claims the review was negative with only one - qualified - positive. Yet somehow the set was still recommended.

    Wouldn't your time be better spent singing the praises of Hoth Bricks and their apparent moral superiority when reviewing LEGO sets?

    And by the way, one's enjoyment of a LEGO set is inherently subjective.  There is no singular truth to whether a LEGO set is 'good' or 'bad'.

    Yada, yada, yada. Yawn. I wasn't bullied by the Brickset mafia when I first joined the forum, and I won't be bullied now. I won a few friends here by managing to shut some people up who were talking about crap they knew nothing about (tax, consumer laws, etc.).

    Always makes me laugh when people here are critical of the Eurobricks forum, as though the same type of stuff doesn't happen here. Sure, it's not the mods who stifle debate here, it's the regular cliques. Your opinion has to match the majority or it's inherently deemed invalid.

    And of course someone's enjoyment of Lego is subjective. When did I say otherwise? You just can't handle that I had the temerity to call the recommendation out for what it was. You're simply closing ranks around the Brickset staff because that's what sheep do. That's what always happens in a community, the 'leaders' and 'owners' are somehow deemed untouchable, above criticism.

    Let's be absolutely clear here. Brickset may have started out as a labour of love but now exists solely to generate income. That's not necessarily a bad thing, in fact Huw and co would be daft not to monetise the community they painstakingly built up, but it is bound to influence their recommendations, their decision to push certain products and promotions.

    Can we return to talking about the set?

    I was skeptical of the 007 licence, it didn't make sense to me at all. Having now seen all the praise levied on the play features I get it to an extent.

    I wonder how the deal came about though, whether TLG started out by getting a licence with Aston Martin, or went straight for the double licence. Also I guess the rumours about a Bond LEGO Dimensions set that was planned but never happened might have been part of it. If LEGO had gone to the lengths of getting both licences for that they might not have wanted to waste it....

    pure speculation, but makes for some fun thinking.

    Exactly. The majority opinion of the set is that it's quite bad, right? We're all thinking 1, maybe 2/10, right? And then big bad CapnRex came along and said "I would actually recommend this." Pretty much everyone hates the set, and yet CapnRex claims he finds it all right. There's just no way he's telling the truth. He has to be lying. Everyone can tell just from images that it's crap, so how could someone who has gone so far to build the set not notice this? He's lying, isn't he? He's being bribed, isn't he? Is that right?

    ^ I was thinking the same thing. I wondered if Disney was also involved with the plans for Dimensions Year 3, since Disney Infinity was cancelled and all, but they pulled out at the last minute and blew a hole in the plans that couldn't be filled. It's a shame, but as always, it's less money to spend!

    Don't get me wrong, @Aleydita - I see where you're coming from. Reviews here on Brickset have an unusual tendency to recommend sets immediately after listing their many flaws. I just doubt the reason behind it is as malicious as you're suggesting.

    Um, does anyone really care?  It's a toy review on a website.  I can think of 1000 other places where being a self-appointed truth crusader would be more impactful.  

    We're not talking misinformation or unsubstantiated speculation.  It's one person's opinion on a LEGO set.  And if you choose to impute that opinion because of some relationship you percieve between the reviewer and product seller - good for you.  If the reviewer doesn't disclose the relationship, then shame on them.  And if viewers don't trust the review - then nobody will read it.

    Any time I see a positive review for a Transformers movie, that reviewer is off of my list for consideration.  I don't feel the need to raise the flag and sound the alarms.  I just ignore the next review.

    Either way, I don't mind the set.  I think it'll look fine with the rest of the automobiles in the Creator line.  I am happy to see that LEGO is pushing further out with licenses and appear to be leaving the previous constraints.

    1. Best custom Bond figure I need examples.
    2. Will we see more Bond sets?
    3. Who has built theirs already and do you make a vroom vroom sound or a sqreek when driving?
    4. Who is doing custom changes and what are they.

    A rather confident 007 strolled into a bar and took a seat next to a stunningly attractive woman. He gave her a quick glance, then casually looked at his watch for a moment.

    Noticing his actions, the woman next to him asked, "Is your date running late?"

    "No," he replied, "Q's just given me this state-of-the-art watch and I was just testing it."

    Intrigued by his words the woman replied, "A state-of-the-art watch? What's so special about it?"

    "Well you see," said Bond, "it uses Alpha waves to telepathically talk to me."

    "I see," said the woman, "and what's it telling you now?"

    "It says you're not wearing any knickers..." came the reply.

    The woman giggled and replied, "Well it must be broken because I'm afraid I'm wearing knickers!"

    007 tutted, tapped his watch and said, "Damn thing must be an hour fast!"

    Maybe future reviews can be augmented by a poll of some form that allows Brickset users to score the sets out of 10? It would allow everyone to share their views without the need to excessive verbosity. And also act as another for of guide for future buyers.

    Honestly I'd say that most of the TLNM sets aside from maybe Zane's Ice Tank (weirdly expensive RRP) and Garmadon's Shark Mech (bit too bulky for my liking) are worth a punt if the price is right, and even at RRP they're really dang worth it - 70607 Ninjago City Chase is probably the best-value small set I've ever bought, and the 70612 Green Ninja Mech Dragon is really bloody awesome. Goes without saying that Ninjago City and the Docks are must-buys too.

    C'mon guys, let's stay on topic here as asked by the mods. I typed a whole argument yesterday too and cut it out to try and not give fuel anymore to this discussion, please do not tempt me anymore because I'm not that strong ;)

    To answer this question.

    2. Will we see more Bond sets?


    Feedback people. Lets get to work.


    I am not sure we will see more Bonds sets, guess it will depend on sales, but seems like the opinion is pretty divided on this. The violence is the first issue, but the mysogyny in the older films is pretty horrendous so don't know if they would actually do figures/playsets. Although I would have never predicted for them to include so many playfeatures in this so maybe I am wrong.

    Something I would like to see: Scaramanga's island.
    Something I wouldn't like to see: Felix hanging from a hook being eaten by a shark.

    I guess it depends...  is this predominantly a James Bond theme, or an Aston Martin theme?

    If it's the latter, then according to the AM website, that gives the following...

    Goldfinger - DB5
    Thunderball - DB5
    On Her Majesty's Secret Service - DBS
    The Living Daylights - V8 Vantage
    Goldeneye - DB5
    Die Another Day - Vanquish
    Casino Royale - DBS
    Quantum Of Solace - DBS
    Skyfall - DB5
    Spectre - DB10

    Not a huge selection, and with the possible exception of the V8 Vantage, all pretty difficult to replicate in the brick.

    If you're looking at any Bond cars though, not just Astons, or Bond vignettes, then that's a whole different kettle of fish.
