Minidolls Legoman 05/18/2020 (Mon) 02:59:00 No.474 [Reply]
Minidolls! First released in 2012, they were exclusively used in the "girl" lines until The Lego Movie 2, after which time they immediately went back to being exclusively used in the girl lines. Minidolls have fewer points of articulation than minifigs and are thus more challenging to customize. Let's see your custom minidolls!

How many have you played, if any? Generally speaking I'm quite sour with TT after the unfinished mess that was the Hobbit game. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't they have a day-one DLC for that one? What sad times we must be living in where even Lego is not safe from the ravages of the modern video game market.
Anyway, holy shit do I wish they would do my ideas for Lego games, which they have done a bit of in LotR and Clone Wars. I also want to see Legos torture and murder each other, and I DO NOT want them speaking anything comprehensible. I want to crucify Lego dissidents for the glory of my Lego empire. I want to massacre entire cultures that happened to be in my way. Kids would eat that shit up because kids like edge, and parents generally don't give a fuck anymore what their children play. How would an E/E10+ FPS fair, do you think? Lego Sims-clone?

>>581 >I'd like to believe that I've played all of them up to 2011 Impressive. What flash games are you missing? I have loads downloaded and would share them here if you want. >Lego Star Wars: The Video Game perfected the TT formula I replayed the complete saga not so long ago and I was shocked at how badly it had held up. It wasn't as fun or as good looking as I remembered, while other videogames of the time had aged nicely. It's very barebones, along with the other copied and pasted TT games like Indiana Jones and Batman. Indiana Jones 2 and Harry Potter pushed it further forward in that they added new features, but I haven't completed them yet. They are really enjoyable so far. LOTR is almost like a completely different formula and I don't know what to make of it. Some new features are nice, but others feel like they were added just to bloat the game a bit. Battles is surprisingly fun and addictive. I didn't enjoy the very similar Warcraft: Orcs & Humans but the more streamlined Battles allows for quick and fast-paced levels. I'll have to remember to come back to this and decompile the .nds file so I can get that sweet concept art unlockables out of it. http://the-eye.eu/public/rom/ is a good place to find older games. Just select which system you want and ctrl+f lego.
>>582 I'm missing the majority of non Bionicle flash games, like Exo-Force, Lego City and Creator. If you have any of the Mars Mission games, they would be greatly appreciated. >I replayed the complete saga not so long ago and I was shocked at how badly it had held up. Playing the complete saga was the problem here. It opens with some of the worst levels on offer and one of the worst hubs (in my opinion). Do yourself a favor and play through the video game, rather than the complete saga. It's far more entertaining.
Only played the first Bionicle flash game, an Alpha Team flash (I think), and the Star Wars prequel trilogy on the Gamecube. Granted, when it comes to the latter, I really don't like Star Wars as a series anymore; haven't in years. But I always thought that the force mechanic as a concept perfectly integrated with the deconstruction/reconstruction aspect, in a way that the premise for most later licensed Lego games never quite struck me as doing. While I know not every character could use it, I think the "mind over matter" part, that the character had a vision of exactly how they wanted it to look and didn't even have to touch the bricks to implement it, was the key factor. >>582 >My Favorite always has and always will be MNOG. It wasn't much of a "game" (well, any more than most point and click adventures, anyhow), but it did a great job not only helping to build up a world behind the actual sets of the time, but also letting the player feel involved in it. Heard the second flash was a complete mess, which strikes me as a shame.
listing only the full-on games and not all the flash on lego.com >lego star wars I and II pretty good, played them to death though, don't think I will ever do it again >lego harry potter 1-4 and 5-7 it's okay, don't remember much about it but it's alright >lego star wars clone wars not my cup of tea but I see why people like it >lego pirates of the caribbean played like two levels at my cousin's house, seemed fun >lego creator knights' kingdom bought it as a kid thinking it would be a fun lego castle game but it turned out to be just a lame ass program for setting up "scenes". I think I cried. >lego racers my absolute favourite(though I might be nostalgiafagging since it was one of my first games ever). Still play through it every couple of months(it takes like an afternoon). great soundtrack, great classic themes, great pace. only problems are 10IQ opponents and weird car handling

If anyone has any ideas for more challenges, I'll add them to the list.
This thread makes me wish LEGO Masters would come back on already.

By the way, I suggest using an editing tool with layers and adding the layout image as a top layer with blending mode Multiply or Darken, so you can see the UV faces and edit the colors below it easily.

Hello /lego/, I arrive at your humble board to officially announce the GCUP! The GCUP will be an exhibition tournament between boards of the webring that represent nations of the world, and will be contested under usual ICUP rules. In addition, we'll also be hosting friendlies for non-national boards/teams as part of the festivites. Friendlies can be played under normal rules, or, if you choose, under alternate (meme) rulesets that will be decided closer to the Cup's kickoff. If you would like to participate, head on over to the pinned thread at our board on Cafe. The event is set to begin February 13th, 2021. Look forward to having you there! Someone's already come on over and agreed to join up, but I have to post this for both posterity and to make sure I got to everyone
Heads up for anyone wanting to see updates on the team should check out >>>/icup/472

They're soulless.
If you're only looking for how soulful a theme is, then you'll only find that yellow minifg era Star Wars is the only soulful licensed theme. It doesn't mean other licensed themes are bad per se.
Old licensed sets had a touch of LEGO's own creativity in them. Models weren't perfect recreations, and that's where the soul lies, since you use your imagination - or even better - improve them yourself, and thus draw enjoyment from them. Nowadays every licensed theme has specific unique pieces made for them that are designed specifically after the original thing from the source material.
Why make a star wars blaster out existing pieces and your own imagination when you can just make a one-piece mold of a blaster, right? Why try to build anything instead of just making specific molds for everything like all other toys do?
Why stop there, why have your own pirate theme you can do anything with and make incredible shit (like Vikings) when you can just license POTC and join the mainstream? Why have a cheeky aussie explorer when you can just make Indiana Jones the only cheeky explorer in existence? No need for originality.
I excuse Star Wars '99 because LEGO Space/Tron series was long retired and there was a vacuum in space themes around that time, but doing it too much just makes it pointless. What's the point if it's just an imitation of existing media? All other licensed toys already do that. It makes me sad, but I guess you have to follow the money sometimes.
You hit the nail on the head there anon. It's a case of modern licensed themes being made by Lego while older Lego making licensed themes, if that makes sense. New licensed themes are accurate representations of their source material (hyper-detailed minifigures, heavy reliance on specialised pieces with no re-usability, and no evidence of it being a Lego set as it feels more like a scaled model) whereas the older themes had a distinct Lego feel to them. If I had to single out a specific theme that shows this, it'd be Harry Potter. Back in 2001 the sets were wildly different to the movies (I don't remember Hogwarts being that garishly coloured!) but had the Lego touch to them - the modern sets have lost this completely.

I've looked online and find that this change seems to be noticeable around 2006-08 with a slew of licensed themes each with unique pieces and less of a focus on rebuilding sets, though the first major change has to be the switch to flesh tones.
