Looking to Buy Physical Hero Factory Comics
makuta_icarax posted a topic in Buy/Sell/TradeI am looking to buy physical copies of the Hero Factory comics, as eBay searches only bring up 5, 6, and 7. As a result, I am much more interested in getting copies of 1-4, but would not be opposed to a bundle of all the comics. Please let me know if you have copies that you would be willing to sell. Open to negotiation, but please stay reasonable. Most comic book database sites have these books listed at or only slightly above MSRP. Thank you!
Bricks Magazine - Brick Bulk
Black Six posted a topic in General DiscussionI received the following message recently from Mark Guest, one of the people behind LEGO fan magazines Bricks and Bricks Culture: This seems like an awesome opportunity for those of us in the USA. Is anyone interested? We'd need at least 20 issues worth of interest, and keep in mind that depending on where you are, there would be an extra shipping cost of me sending the individual issues to you, but overall it seems like it would be a cost savings.
Wal-Mart Gamecenter- Free Jurassic World Poster
Toaraga posted a topic in LEGO DiscussionI was in Wal-Mart today, and I stumbled upon a promo magazine (the one that is basically just advertisements) in the video game area. It has Batman: Arkham Knight on the cover, and it mentions a preview for LEGO Dimensions. In the upper right corner, I noticed a thing for a free LEGO Jurassic World poster inside. Needless to say, I picked it up. I haven't really read the articles, so I don't know if there's any information we didn't already know about. It's free, so if you come across it and want a LEGO Jurassic World poster, check and see if your local Wal-Mart might have one. ©1984-2014 Toaraga EAM

"homemade" Magazine Comic Translations
emily posted a topic in LEGO DiscussionSome of you may recall this Brickshelf folder, which surfaced a while ago last year. It contains scans of the Russian version of Adventures magazine, titled Homemade. Since Adventures magazine is somewhat hard to find, this seemed like a good alternative for enjoying all of the comics inside, although it would require translation. By luck I chanced upon translations of the "Legend of Lewa" comics, resulting in a topic I posted for them before the downtime. However, my attempts to translate the other comics were met with failure- strangely, Google Translate's Russian keyboard did not include several of the characters used in the magazine.Recently I began thinking about the magazine again, and decided to give it another try. Soon enough, I had cracked the code.It began when I noticed that Ogel's name was spelled two different ways in different places. Upon closer examination I saw this applied to all of the names, and that the different spellings were inconsistent only between two different fonts. From this, I began substituting characters in the font Google couldn't translate for characters that were used in the same place in the character's names in the other font. This solved the problem and the only other problem from their on has been the occasional trouble Google Translate usually has.And here, for you to read, are the comics:ADVENTURERSDinner for DinosaursPage 1Page 2Page 3Page 4Page 5Page 6Notes: Only place to describe how Mike joined the Adventurers, however vague it is.ALPHA TEAMOgel's Cunning PlanPage 1Page 2Page 3Page 4Page 5Page 6Notes: While Flex's name is normal, Dash is identified as Vortex, Radia's name translates inconsistently between Radium and Radiation, and Cam, strangely, is called Nick. Ogel's name usually came out as Ohel (and, less frequently, Ogle) and Tee Vee was Ti Integer, possibly due to the Russian word for integer being spelled the same as the phonetic spelling for Vee.Secret IslandPage 1Page 2Page 3Page 4Page 5Page 6CITY CENTERCoastal RescuePage 1Page 2Page 3Page 4Race in the SkyPage 1Page 2Page 3Page 4Notes: In this and several other comics, The Brickster has the appearance of Jailbreak Joe. Interestingly, this also occurs in the DK book Trouble at the Bridge, possibly in addition to others. The comic also features Extreme Team, which is strange seeing as it is labeled as a City Center comic.Special CargoPage 1Page 2Page 3Page 4Friendship WinsPage 1Page 2Page 3Page 4Page 5Page 6Notes: A lot of the translations didn't make sense, so be wary of nonsensical statments and possible innaccurate lines I filled in based on the information I had.Skateboard ChasePage 1Page 2Page 3Page 4Notes: The Brickster, when translated literally, is known as Brick.KNIGHT'S KINGDOMCunning PlanPage 1Page 2Page 3Page 4Page 5Page 6LIFE ON MARSMystery of the Red PlanetPage 1Page 2Page 3Page 4Page 5Page 6Notes: The Martian is called Antares, but has the appearance of Pollux.SOCCERDecisive KickPage 1Page 2Page 3Page 4Page 5Page 6SPACE PORTJourney to the MoonPage 1Page 2Page 3Page 4Page 5Page 6Notes: The astronauts are called Captain Jerry Walker and Navigator Tina Orbit. In the translation I used their US names, Buzz Bailey and Hallie Comet, since I'm not 100% certain on the names. I couldn't translate the last minifig's name so I went with Technician Bob, the only name I know of for the minifig.If anyone has any requests on the comic to be translated next (see here for them all) I'd be happy to oblige.The full Brickshelf gallery is here.

Here is a short overview of things I have to do: 1) Prepare for final exam in April, especially for the Maths part. 2) Finally get the new Chronicler (formerly IDBM) issue done. 3) Complete my work on "The Complete Legend" 4) Translate The Crossing Chapter 4, Journey's End Chapter 2 and Sahmad's Tale Chapter 2 for The Chronicler.

The Chronicler (formerly Idbm)
Nuhrii the Metruan posted a blog entry in blogs_blog_1324Today, the "Unofficial German BIONICLE Magazine" changes its name to become "The Chronicler" (German: Der Chronist). Far better than "IDBM", right?
