    Received my first LotR set (Mines of Moria) this morning from Amazon.de.
    Looks great - some great minifigs.
    Can't wait to get it built :-)

    Just bought myself Log Cabin (5766), Ewok Attack (7956), Endor Rebel Trooper + Imperial Trooper (9489), Imperial V-Wing Fighter (7915) and 1 series 7 minifig (got the Evil Knight I wanted).
    Also ordered Rogue Shadow (7672), should be here monday.
    That was just for myself, got my GF a Police Helicopter Limited Edition (3658), it was on sale at the local supermarket so I couldn't resist.

    My Mum's on holiday and having today in Brighton. So I ask if she would go to the Lego shop, which she does. I then ring her while she's in there to see what they have, and she say's you would love it in here, yes I would love to be there. Then she doesn't buy anything, oh well at least she went in :)

    CC complete! Looks marvelous up on the shelf and I'm so happy to have it in the collection.

    Now to design an interior for at least the first floor. I kind of wish I'd subbed out the baseplate for a non-green version. Not exactly the best looking floor.
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    Congrats @iccarus! It's worth the effort, isn't it?

    Thought the same thing about the first floor, but if you get GG you'll notice that's the first thing they fixed and boy did they fix it well.

    ^^ I designed my custom CC with the first floor being kind of an ice cream shop. Nothing too elaborate, just a standing freezer and an ice cream counter freezer. Here's a cutaway pic.

    Bricklinking Cafe Corner. Used atxdad's matlab script with much success. One of the orders had mostly used parts. Now, I've received used parts and was very impressed with the condition for the most part. This one order had VERY scuffed pieces, doors scratched up (although I expected that) and some white and black gunk on some of the pieces. I probably won't be able to use any of them for CC so I'll probably have to reorder from someone else (probably multiple people). It's a little aggravating. Some of the pieces were dark blue, sand green, dark green and dark red which were mostly just to build up a small order but still.... used is used I guess.

    Back to rebuilding my brickstore wantlist.
  • BuriedinBricksBuriedinBricks USAMember Posts: 1,367
    @BrickDancer I am very happy with the finished product, even with the few minor substitutions I needed to make.

    @Graphite That looks great. I have some ideas for a basic coffee shop counter. I should be able to build most of it with spare parts I have, although I need to pick up some tiles for the flooring. I'm trying to figure out a good color scheme though.

    @Bosstone100 I avoid ordering used parts when possible. It added a bit to the cost of the CC, but it made it feel like building a new set in the end.
  • caperberrycaperberry LondonMember Posts: 2,226
    @Bosstone100 using atxdad's program means you're saving money so a little over ordering on Used is wise.
  • tvihtvih Member Posts: 92
    Ordered Death Star. I've entered the dark side or something given how silly doing it was given my finances, even if the deal was quite good!
  • mcvitiemcvitie Sheffield, EnglandMember Posts: 292
    Dismantled Imperial Flagship, Millennium Falcon, Hogwarts Castle and Battle of Endor - my hands hurt now!
  • richoricho Member Posts: 3,830
    Built a snowy mountain pass ready for my Lord of The Rings fellowship minifigs when I get them some time in July.

    @richo- Now I want to see pictures of this snowy mountain pass....
  • richoricho Member Posts: 3,830
    @samiam391,
    its a recreation of the bit where they have to turn back and go through the Mines of Moria...

    @richo- Exactly, I want to see some pictures of it!
  • AFFOL_Shellz_BellzAFFOL_Shellz_Bellz Member Posts: 1,263
    Spoiled . . .just a bit . . . Got the Vampyre Castle and Ghost Train from Monster Fighters and the small Brickley I've been wanting. Hubster got the Mining 4X4 and the Excavator Hauler. I also grabbed the coasters which we'll actually use, oh, and the Batman & Robin PAB.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,594
    Extremely hyper-excited cos I've got myself a 99% complete Green Grocer at an eminently reasonable (to me) price !!!
  • LegopantsLegopants GermanyMember Posts: 2,090
    Half way through building the Mines of Moria set. Lots of stickers :-S
    Great minifigs though. Really love the Cave Troll.
  • KulshanGirlKulshanGirl Member Posts: 67
    Just over halfway through building the mini-modulars. I was kind of meh about this one, but I must say ... this is a totally charmng set. Much smaller and much more intricate than the pictures look. If you're on the fence about it, GO GET IT! :) I want to build a whole world in this scale now.
  • ErnstErnst Member Posts: 133
    Just finished building the Trolls' Mountain Fortress, definitly a great Castle again. Now even more happy I found it !

    Spent 8 hrs. yesterday sorting and the joy continues today . . . have got to quit buying sets and just dumping them in a box!!!
  • LaziterLaziter Member Posts: 76
    Built Rogue Shadow and bought 10kg random bricks which I now need to get sorted out into boxes. Found a rare indian horse in the lot (the painted brown horse).
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    Status: Converted! Learned why it's smart to keep original boxes and changing my 'binning' ways starting today. Reason: Big sets need more than a couple Ziplocs to put into storage.

    Spent weekend doing Spring cleaning and disassembling display sets to make way for the new pieces.

    Down goes: Imperial Shuttle, Queen Anne, Quinjet, Architecture Whitehouse, and almost the Fire Temple (GF vetoed that choice).

    Up goes: Taj Mahal, VW Beetle, Batman Tumbler

    Also, just bought the gf a Creator Beach House (#4996) to fill out her Summer Beach Town layout. Should make her a happy little gal for the Fourth.
  • AFFOL_Shellz_BellzAFFOL_Shellz_Bellz Member Posts: 1,263
    Built 9467 Monster Fighters Ghost Train last night, going to build 9468 Vampyre Castle today because Thursday the surgeon will be scraping growths off the tendon in my right hand and I won't be able to do much building for a few weeks! Likely won't be on line much for the first day or two after surgery either.

    Exhausted after a day of volunteering. Thumbs are sore after pushing in mosaic plates and feet are sore from standing all day. Glad to be home! :)
  • samiam391samiam391 A log cabin in PA, United StatesMember Posts: 4,376
    @LegobrandonCP- Where are you volunteering?


    A happy day after gaining another set of Cloud City minifigures for my collection! :)
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,918
    At a local mall with Canada's only LEGO Certified Professional.

    I thought it would be fun at first. But after standing all day and pushing plates into baseplates, not as fun as one would think. lol ;)

    Well, you have to start somewhere and then work your way up! ;-)

    Built the Heavy-Lift Helicopter yesterday with my four year old son. Loved it. Took it into the swimming pool for some Water Rescues. Anyone know how best to clean water spots off Lego?
  • BlueTaylorBlueTaylor Member Posts: 51
    Deciding which Lego to build next from my recent haul! The Orc Forge, Bikini Bottom Undersea Party or Sith Nightspeeder!?
  • BlueTaylorBlueTaylor Member Posts: 51
    Ordered Death Star. I've entered the dark side or something given how silly doing it was given my finances, even if the deal was quite good!
    I feel like this every time I buy a big set, then don't look at my bank account until my pay goes in! D:
  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332
    Is jealous of @BlueTaylor and the Bikini Bottom Undersea Party.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,594
    Got my box of Team GB figures today, yay!!

    Another successful trading for minifigure evening, as I was able to acquire 3 more Kashyyyks and 4 more Greedos!
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    The Batman Tumbler was a nice little gem to build of about 1.5 hours. Great use of slopes in odd intersecting ways, sturdy feel to the vehicle, and it looks so mean in all black. Definitely nice and just in time for Dark Knight Rises...
  • LegopantsLegopants GermanyMember Posts: 2,090
    Managed to get a couple of LotR Shelob Attack sets for €14.99 (instead of €26.99) from my local toyshop thanks to a price-tagging error :-)
  • littletokilittletoki Member Posts: 519
    Firmly said a few days ago "No more buying Lego for the next few months".

    And then as we were sorting through some of our bulk purchases, we added, "Especially through Craigslist".

    This lasted all of 3 days.

  • JBricks27JBricks27 Member Posts: 678
    Finished building the helms deep set yesterday, completing the last of the LOTR sets. Now trying to figure out where I can find more room to display what I'm going to build next, and deciding what I'm going to build. Death Star? SSD? Modulars? Battle of Endor display? Battle of hoth display? Too much Lego, too little time....

    Just closed the biggest sale of my career so far, at $1.7M! Will be celebrating tonight with the biggest Lego set of my life so far, the Taj Mahal!

    Annoyed. I just opened the 4867 Hogwarts that I picked up on Kmart's clearance a while back, and it is missing a whole inner bag. It was replaced with a duplicate of one of the other inner bags. Hope that LEGO CS will be willing to send me the 29 replacement parts!
  • caperberrycaperberry LondonMember Posts: 2,226
    Just had a mega-shopping spree on amazon.es. I needed that.
    @Pepper spookily my Cursed Cobra Statue I started tonight seems to be missing a bag. I did open the box last week though... maybe it fell out somewhere... heaven help me if I put it in the 'to be sorted' box, I'll never find it...
  • Ma1234Ma1234 Member Posts: 693
    Just won a sealed 7839 Car Transporter Depot for a reasonable price on eBay. I'll probably keep this set sealed, which is rare for me.

    @BrickDancer- What in the world did you sell? Congrats, whatever it is!!
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,918
    Back after another day of volunteering. Legs still sore and knees are bruised from kneeling too much. But I have a feeling will be much better. Building sky rises tomorrow!!
  • AFFOL_Shellz_BellzAFFOL_Shellz_Bellz Member Posts: 1,263
    Just finished building 9468 Vampyre Castle and wishing I'd bought the Vampyre Hearse along with it. Maybe after surgery Thursday hubby will feel sorry for me and buy it .
