    ^ I purchased a range of stands from the same seller a few days ago. They look fantastic!
    They do let you show off your finished work, really good quality. 


    Sounds interesting. Link?

    Is there one for the Twilight? #7680

    (And any plans for one for the Milano? #76021)

    Don't know, I'm just a happy customer and aren't the manufacturer. 
    Looks like they do generic stands that you could use but with that asymmetrical design you'd need to use the centre of gravity point to prop it up on. 
    Then it would be whether #7680 was strong enough at that point.

    Ah - I made an assumption.  I can contact them directly.

    Sets do look nice displayed on the acrylic stands, but as it's LEGO being displayed I also prefer brick-built stands. All mine are black, to match the stands on UCS sets.

    and the lego ones have the advantage that you can make them individually without any external tools. only the right parts needed.

    @chrisalddin

    Hi Chris.

    I built the Merc Arocs truck a while back, and I see you're up to the 'fitting all the pneumatics' stage.

    It's really, really easy to get this bit wrong.  Some of the diagrams are not clear at all, and I had to jump forward a few pages on a couple of occasions, just to get a different view of the set up to try and trace the relevant pipes and connections.

    The other thing I'd say is that the arm should have about 180 deg of movement, so at every stage, check that it all still rotates cleanly without snagging.  If it doesn't, check the pipes you've just attached and make sure that their path is correct and that they're not caught or getting crushed at any point.

    It's one of the most difficult bits of Technic building I've done, and patience is rewarded!

    Enjoy it though - it's a great set!

    I keep building and adding sets to the display and moving things around. It is getting very crowded. Eventually, the Black Knight is going to.knock on Majisto's door and ask for some sugar ;)

    Status = overjoyed. Received #10197 Fire Brigade modular in the post so I'm now one step closer to my dream of owning all the modulars. This is the first retired modular I've bought so it's extra special to me. My son loves the vintage fire truck and the shiny silver fire helmets. He's easily pleased just like his dad :-)

    Why yes, being in the military is a hard life; my father served 23 years. Being deployed is no fun; my friend's Hummer ran over an IED and blew up and now he's permanently disabled. Yeah...hard life...

    Anyhow...In other news...

    so @Pitfall69 thanks for taking my comment and taking it out of context.
    what i was trying to say in my ass about face bad way of doing so. was saying that right at this time. on this day at this hour his life was looking up and he should enjoy it.
    seeing as he said it in a way that made it sound like a chore. or that is how i read it as.

    I don't know if anyone else has pointed this out yet, but there's some Mega Bloks in that thing. Minion Mega Bloks, no less.

    Well the TIE Advanced Prototype build lived up to expectations - it was like building a small UCS set :)



    Also, the Inquisitor minifigure is superb.

    @Legopants - Be careful around the build-a-minifig bar. Being disassembled and thrown in with the other dismembered limbs would be a horrible way to go...
    Thanks for the safety warning. I shall make sure I'm accompanied by a responsible adult at all times :-)

    About halfway through washing and drying 5197 pieces of Lego. My inner child is screaming with excitement and bouncing off the metaphorical walls, my adult self is doing fencing when its dry and replacing kitchen doors when its raining.



    Only six or so more loads to go!

    @stevecook132 be glad you didn't have dried up grass, grim, and dirt in them, and you didn't have to brush them clean :p I still haven't finished mine (still trying to make time to 'whiten' pieces), but I'm ready to start building the sets back. 

    I recently learned that my brother had some of the smaller older Star Wars sets, so that's on my list for next time. 
  • stevecook132stevecook132 Member Posts: 112
    ^Thanks @josekalel I've definitely got an easy clean up, just seems like lots of it :-) Done my share of individual brick cleaning with some of my secondhand Technic, I dread to think what I've actually been brushing off some stuff <shudders>...

    Have fun with the early SW sets, I feel I may be broadening my 'wanted' list soon...

    Made a rough start on sorting the second huge crate of Lego (I went in to get parts for my contest model, and you know how it is...), and was happy to find two of my old-style dragons, including my favourite one with the red wings!

    ^ It makes me chuckle every time I am reminded that your name is Lucy.  And I chuckle every time Wyldstyle says it in the Lego Movie.

    Also, as an unrelated non-sequitor - Peelter Quill!  My son was very pleased with himself for thinking of those on his own.

    This afternoon I have been sorting out hairpieces. There is a surprisingly wide range of colours! 
    In case anyone is interested:

    Not the best of pics but you can get the idea! 

    @SumoLego I wish I was more like Wyldstyle Lucy! 
    And how about Iron Shark and Captain Hotdog as more Superhero/mascot mash-ups?
