Hello, I was thinking about entering Lego Technic hobby... I was researching about buying a lot of sets and stuff... but then I discovered that Lego has a shop that lets you buy individual pieces...

So I don't think I'll buy sets anymore.

I'll just buy the Power Functions and Mindstorms... then I'll buy the bushs, beams, axles and other pieces from Pick-a-Brick.
There's another service called Bricks & Pieces, you can buy other pieces there... like orange beams not available at Pick-a-Brick. There's also Brick Link, it's a great place to buy balls...

Also, in this way I'll only buy pieces I need and I won't want to collect sets. I want technic to build contraptions, not cars and trucks...

What do you think about this strategy?"

How trustable are the sellers? Is there pirated stuff?

Lego prices are good, but once you go into the Brick & Pieces the prices rise up a little bit, I'd say about 25%. They're missing some pieces too."

>Are they scalpers that resell pieces?
i have no idea how this would work

I have the feeling most of them are AFOLs that run stores to pay for their own hobby, parting out sets they find on clearance, garage sale lots, whatever. They are overall very reliable. I'm up to ~130 orders over the years and 3/4ths of my collection is from bricklink; out of these I had one that sent me clone brand parts. It looked like an honest mistake, they issued a refund, etc, which is par for the course: every time I have some problem like miscounted parts or wrong variant, the seller is quick to correct whatever it is.

you'll get best results by creating an account, making wanted lists, then searching by store to find whichever seller has most of the inventory you want."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==7218952 && dateTime=="10/26/18(Fri)21:08:50")

That's great. Most pieces, if not all, are beating Lego prices.

Additionally to what you said, I also think they go to Pick-a-Brick Lego stores and fill the cups to sell then at BrickLink."

>Also, how come their pieces are so cheap?
it turns out our plastic fantastics aren't exactly as expensive as Lego likes to price them these days. From what I see it, the prices of parts are exactly based on how prominent they are and their production. It's uncommon that a part will go over a dollar or two
>Are they scalpers that resell pieces?
There's no profit in doing this, all sellers on there are AFOLs who just amassed parts and are getting rid of any stock they don't need or just have to sell"

It's going to be a multimedia project in the vein of the early days of Bionicle. There have been sporadic updates if you've cared to actually read them. 6 years isn't really a shocker considering it's being funded on freelance work, and preproduction is the longest and most expensive phase of nearly any collaborative project. Bionicle toiled in concept for somewhere around 5 years before making it to print, and that was on Lego's panic budget."

I think it could end up being a more niche alternative to the Architecture line if it's successful. It is a little odd that they've gone with a third-party funding service instead of a proprietary one, like Hasbro or Mattel have, but I think the fact that they are sort of doing these by-order means whatever impact it has on Technic as a whole will be peripheral. It's still too early to tell, with just the one sets for order right now, but I'm anxious to see where it goes."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==7220334 && dateTime=="10/27/18(Sat)20:10:30" && image=="42059.png")

I think it should be included, since the newer technics sets are pretty much a misture of CCBS and technic.

I don't think there's a "pure" system in the market anymore.

They will always come wtih Minidoll/Minifigure system, Classic System, Technic and CCBS. Some come with Power Functions too...

They're all mixed.

But I think that Technic and CCBS are linked together, because there's no set without it in the market. So it really should be a "CCBS and Technic" topic."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==7220378 && dateTime=="10/27/18(Sat)20:34:37")

I see... the Forma system are paper like pieces that can fold and turn and stuff... This is interesting. And probably much cheaper than factoring CCBS pieces...

I think that's the future of Lego.

It'll maintain the skeleton form the CCBS system, but will used Forma system to create the armors. So they won't need to use them on Technic system...

I really liked this Forma system. It represents better engineering, since most of the machines are actually covered with a thin layer of plastic/metal.

Probably that for realistic sets, the scales keep varying so they would often be out of place, and for "fantasy" sets, building the creatures and characters was the point so they were kinda useless.
There just weren't any reason to keep them other than designing sets arround them, which would be something of a waste since they weren't even that popular in the first place."

LEGO is pretty evil themselves, trying to trademark """"their"""" brick system.

LEGO never created the blocks system. Nor the Peg System, nor the block+peg system... yet they pretty much claim it was them.

Most technic pieces are nothing more than mechanical pieces under a "grid" and a "pattern" and nothing more.

They have a patent for optimization for rendering bricks in real time for CAD software. Fuck them. I don't even know how they could get a patent like that. That's patent troll at its finest."

Yes, LEGO created that tube that's connected to the bottom of the piece. That's okay, I think. But they wanted the brick format for themselves.

And they wanted to protect it under trademark. It's the same thing that Disney is doing with Mickey Mouse, that's why they're using the black/white Mickey everywhere. Mickey is about to go public domain, yet no one will be able to use him because of trademarks.

They could only get the Minifigure trademark. I don't think that was okay, because the minifigures were never used as their own thing from LEGO before, they were pieces of a system... they started to market the minifigures like that with that trademark battle. They won. But I don't think they should've won.

Thankfully they lost the brick trademark. I guess that's why they're not using that system logo with the brick on top of it anymore."

The idea of a factory that builds cocky heros made to specifications was actually a provocation to the whole legendary hero story we had told in Bionicle.

There's having no creativity and then there's wanting something refreshing to get invested into. There's no fun in years of nothing new and having to make your own shit over and over. At least with a new theme it can act as a springboard for mocs, but there has to at least be something. Playing the uncreative card is just making an excuse for the fact that Lego is overflowing with licenced themes and model kits. Do you tell people to write their own LoTR books if there aren't any books being written with the basic fantasy themes to quench their thirst? That's just being disingenuous."

>Transformers didn't
But it did. Similar to Bonkle, Transformers was practically dead in the years leading up to Beast Wars in most markets. Of course the major difference is that TF was an enormous pop culture sensation with cartoons, a theatrical movie that bombed but grew into a cult classic, and legit comics that were more than mere magazine freebies. It had a huge fanbase of raging adult autists who were still active online. Hasbro had plenty of reasons to try and reimagine one of their flagship brands. They experimented and lucked out with Beast Wars.
In contrast, Lego hardly gives a shit about action figures anymore and the fanbase is minuscule because Bionicle didn't leave a big enough pop cultural footprint."

The story never matched up to Bionicle, but Hero Factory's interesting to me. It has a transition between late-bionicle (look at the first wave, it was basically the bionicle stars with fancy weapons) and ended with CCBS as we know it today.

If you want to get into Bionicle, go to biomediaproject (a website that's preserved any and all media related to Bionicle), and download the Mata Nui Online Game (they have a version with autosaves there). It's an old flash game released back when Bionicle was first introduced, and it's easily the best way to tell if you'll like the series, thanks to its artstyle, writing, and atmosphere.
If you're still interested in it after that, then read the comics (made by DC) and the occasional movie when needed (just avoid the 4th one). There are also novels, which are surprisingly not bad for the most part."
