About Vorahk1Panrahk2

  • Birthday 05/05/1991

Profile Information

  • Gender
  • Location
    A farm.
  • Interests
    FIRST and foremost: Robotics, or anything FIRST related. If it weren't for the fact that I have zero math ability I would pursue an engineering career. But as it stands I'm pursing a career in Geology (which I do not consider second tier, as I enjoy it just as much).

    Movies - I love watching movies, thinking about movies, and writing about movies. Basically if you want to talk about movies, drop me a PM! I'd love your insights and I really don't have anyone else to talk to about movies! I don't have a particular favorite genre as I feel that each one has something to offer in terms of entertainment, nor would I say I have a favorite movie of all time. But if I had to chose a top five:

    - Raiders of the Lost Ark
    - Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
    - Once Upon a Time in the West
    - Lawrence of Arabia
    - Tangled

    Reading - Maybe I just have a thing for storytelling and getting told stories (because I'm not talented enough to write my own), but I also love reading. Again, no favorite genre/type/whatever, but I do have a few favorite authors, mainly Paulo Coelho and Tolkien. I, again, do not like picking favorites, but if I had to chose a top five it would probably consist of:

    - The Devil and Miss Prym (Paulo Coelho)
    - A Passage to India (EM Forster)
    - Bridge to Terabithia (Katherine Paterson)
    - Animal Farm (George Orwell)
    - The Giver (Lois Lowry)
    (not exactly all age level reading but WHATEVER.)

    Music - Mostly instrumental music, whether it's a film score or piano/violin music (often dubbed as 'new age'). I will also listen to classic rock and bluegrass/folk music. Favorite film composers are John Williams and Ennio Morricone, while my favorite piano soloist is Philip Wesley. And although he rarely does solo piano, I enjoy Brian Crain as well ('Song for Siena' is particularly lovely).

    Long Walks - Whether I'm Geocaching or contemplating life, I love walking and hiking. There's just something refreshing about a long walk, especially when you have no idea where you're going. I've often been told that the best way to learn a new area is to get yourself lost, and I find this to be true. So I always strive to get myself lost. Good for exercise and relaxation.

Emerging Defender of Mata Nui (138/293)

  1. I continue to be baffled by the advancement of sets based on sitcoms, but they must be doing well that LEGO will be putting out a fifth. That said, the range of products coming from Ideas is pretty diverse (the inclusion of Jazz Quartet only widens that) and it's really cool that there's a little something for everyone in the line.

    I am so ready for spooky season and autumn weather that comes with it. Unfortunately in my neck of CA we don't really get autumn...
  3. Didn't get a chance to watch the video yesterday but it's now private? Any other links to watch it?
  4. Little kid me saved up allll his money to buy that when it came out. It's the only version of the ship I bought, and it's still sitting on my shelf 19 years later, mostly intact. It's definitely been surpassed by later versions, but I don't think its aged that badly either. I look forward to displaying it next to the UCS version.
  5. My only real complain is the top of the side doors. I know the movie model is curved similarly at the top, but I don't think they quite nailed the shape. Should be flush with the fuselage when closed. Including a mini speeder bike for the interior would have been a cherry on top, but I'm being greedy. It's a really beautiful rendition of the ship, and I look forward to making this my first UCS set. Hopefully this does well enough to encourage more prequel UCS sets so we can get a UCS ARC-170.
  6. The farm truck and its accessories are adorable. I can't put a finger on why I love it, I just do.
  7. Was hoping this one would make it through. I look forward to seeing the final model.
  8. As someone who currently makes maps for a living ("living") I find this.... actually really boring. It's cool to see the bathymetry rendered in LEGO but I just don't really see the appeal. I think it would have been cooler if it zoomed in on continents instead of fitting the whole globe on the panel. That way you could show topographic detail and still show the bathymetry. I reallllly like the mini build with the numbered tiles though. I'm currently building the John Lennon mosaic and that looks a lot more useful than sharpie-ing bags.
  9. I'm going to be a stick in the mud here. Wouldn't be surprised if this started a rule about resubmitting models. Technically different sure, but it was initially rejected for a reason. I don't see those reasons changing just because the model is different. Of course, on the flip side, reaching 10,000 again tells LEGO that there is, in fact, still current demand. But I dunno. I just worry it could set a precedent of users resubmitting the same models over again. It's a beautiful model but it had its chance.
  10. After there release of the ginormous Colosseum, I'd love to see more LEGO sets based on other well known (and perhaps lesser known!) historical sites, archaeological sites, and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Greek Temple is a bit disappointing in that its a "generic" Greek Temple, inspired by a few but not particularly based on one. It's a beautiful model, though. The succulent garden is the real winner of the three though. So cute, and representing something you pretty much never see rendered in LEGO. It'd be nice companion to the bonsai. Seems like every week there's another project reaching 10k. LEGO Ideas is such a cool platform and we've gotten some great sets from it.
  11. Had no idea I wanted a LEGO Anchor Guitar until today. That's a cool mold, though. I look forward to seeing it used on ships. And does that samurai-guy have a harmonica holder?
  12. As others stated, Pirates and Castle just got large sets through LEGO Ideas. And we also recently had tributes to Classic Space in the LEGO movie sets. Though given that BIONICLE just ended its second life in 2016, that's also pretty recent. I'll vote BIONICLE, but I won't begrudge a Classic Space victory. Mostly disappointed Adventures didn't make the cut.
  13. The LEGO Bookends are the winner here. Great and unique idea that I can easily see being made into a set thanks to the hidden drawers. I would absolutely buy them.
  14. Since I couldn't vote three times for Adventures, I gave my other two to BIONICLE and Rock Raiders. Those are the only three of interest to me on the list. I like the castle sets, but those always return in some form.
