Finally decided to spend some time building #31052...it's a great build and it looks amazing.
Colors aren't consistent, and in one of the first few pages, pieces in color blue were displayed as purple in the same page...also, distinguishing between some colors is a bit difficult sometimes. Maybe it's just me.
Can't say I've noticed any issues with printing/colours here.
I honestly think LEGO should push for biodegradable bags and for people to recycle the boxes. IMO, of course.
Again, what I said was based on my small negative experience yesterday.
As I still have a few outstanding bricklinked projects to build and am in no rush, I might add what parts are required to a seperate wishlist and take the slow and steady approach to get the rest of the parts required as and when I place other orders.
Surprisingly, I'm only missing 482 parts if i ripped my sets apart to build it, but that isn't going to happen because I'm weird like that. :)
If they wanted to save paper, they could put more pieces in an instruction step. :P
As for electronic instructions, that could be a problem even if you have access. Phone screens can be hard to use for various large projects. LEGO building (especially big models) might be something to do away from a computer or while experiencing technical difficulties.
Didn't finish Brick Bank 2 bags, a lot of other stuff I wanted to do.
Older sets are often upheld as having more challenging instructions than newer ones, but older sets tended to use a lot of extremely basic studs-up building, fewer colors, and very little Technic, so there wasn't as much room for confusion in the builds themselves. There were even some classic sets with printed studs on the baseplates specifically to simplify building.
LEGO has great pride in the clarity of their instructions, so while they certainly care about not wasting resources, making instructions clearer is not necessarily a waste in their eyes even if it means more steps/pages.
I plan to build #31036 Toy & Grocery Shop and #31050 Corner Deli in it.
EDIT: To the right it's gonna be Palace Cinema, and to the left, the Pet Shop.
I have to say though, that the crater plates and monitor screen wall are fairly crucial to the whole set... ;-)
Poor man''s King Piggies Castle with my daughter . She loves the" egg ride to the basket play"
Behold the Poor Man's Piggies Castle ----> Despirate Man's Helms Deep
theres even a "i got a hole in my chest"-dud
I am still not sure if lights or no lights
and i prefer the no lights version
nexo knights is a great theme. and i looking forward to seeing the 2017 (wave 3) set's.
i only need axl's Tower thing from wave 2 to complete wave's 1 and 2.
some day i will do a display of all my nexo knights set's in 1 place. (when i have the room.)
if you had told me 3 years ago, that i would get all the set in a Lego Knight themed set. i would have called you a nutcase.
and even then there is no more repeat then some of the other set's out there.
he's a big boy to. i found it a fun build.
the little builds are cool to. the cage mini build will go well with #70323 when i get round to building it. and the evil horse *bike?* thing is cool, and you get whiperella, as well as black Knight Robin. Price on the other hand. lego have it at £39.99. and Toys r us have it at £31.99 i remember it being priced up at £49.99 at one point but it look's like Toys R Us have cut that crap out. and now have it RRP at £39.99 as well.
it is limited to TRS and Lego so £31.99 is not a bad price. i payed full price for it some weeks ago when i when on the trip to the lego store. the same day i picked up the GBHQ. my advise? get someone to buy it for you for Christmas. there, now you have a Free lego set. :P
