On another note, I would also like to avoid sitting in front of a computer if all instructions went digital. I understand the appeal of less physical storage, but I enjoy this hobby because I can avoid screens. If I had to use a screen to build everything, I honestly would likely quit the hobby, or at least never buy new. I'm on a computer at work, so I can check this page and whatnot, but don't have access to a computer at home outside of my tiny screen smart phone and that would be torture to try to build off of.
I don’t care about small inaccuracies in models that are based on real-life subjects.
I don't like it when people pull off minifigure legs to "better" pose a photograph, especially when it's intending you to see it as a knee. It doesn't look right to me and I always think about dislocated hips.
I'm not especially keen on arms popped out of sockets either, but it doesn't bother me as much.
Just accept the limitation of the medium. The medium being that minifig arms and legs are intended to fit together a certain way, and arguably aren’t intended to be pulled apart at all in the first place.
Am I the only one who is getting a little tired of nearly every, single theme going mech-mad? Especially Ninjago, Monkie Kid & Marvel.
Now, mechs are cool, but the last couple of years seem to have hit new heights of overkill and every other set seems to be a mech! Even the Jurassic World theme got in on the act with #75938 T. rex vs Dino-Mech Battle! Going back a bit I see there are a couple of DC Comics mechs, as well as Overwatch, Nexo Knights & Legends of Chima, which I had initially forgotten.
Isn't it all a bit lacking in imagination? And I'm not aiming this just at Lego, but the owners & writers of these properties! Need to spice up Spider-Man? Chuck him in a mech! ;-)
Disclaimer: This is said fairly tongue-in-cheek. I have a couple of mechs from Ninjago and I'm sure kids *love* mechs!
Edited to add: I've just checked my collection and I have a total of 4 "mechs", one of which is debatable!
#70754 ElectroMech - Only one Ninjago mech after all. I thought I had more!
#21109 Exo Suit - Love this one!
#30529 Mini Master-Building Emmet - LOL! Well, hardly a mech, really!
#31115 Space Mining Mech
There are drawbacks to not having a SmartPhone... cannot use Zelle app, nor Uber/Lyft... but I can get around that. Plus I use my large large computer monitor to Photoshop hundreds of images for my next iteration of my Unofficial LEGO Sets/Parts Collectors Guide... makes it much easier on the eyes.
And the best reason of all... LEGO Sets/MOCs look bigger when not viewed on a SmartPhone! 😁
I agree watching movies on a phone is torture.
I needed some pieces for my latest project.
(I agree with your unpopular opinion?)
