    @snowhitie Such a fun set! I look forward to the day I have time to mod mine into a much bigger/longer bridge.

    @snowhitie I got two last year from Target really cheaply. Definitely needs an additional center section between the two supports to look right though. I might convert mine to a train bridge.

    Popped into Sainsburys on my way home from work to get some food shopping, came out with a discounted #75161 kicking myself for not picking up the Y-Wing version when it was on sale recently. Just need that and two more to complete my Microfighters collection up to 2017

    Bit of a frustrating evening at our house; my partner has built the Maze he got last Christmas (it was not a year conducive to a lot of big Lego projects), but found five missing pieces. I'll see about getting those replaced tomorrow, but I'm a bit boggled; I've never seen anything like it! 

    On the up side, the Bus Station I bought on Ebay with the discount code has arrived.

    Currently building the #42055 Bucket Wheel Excavator and there are so many bags! Some of them are even missing from the picture below. I also finally finished my Firehouse HQ, and I built the Berlin Skyline and the BMW Technic motorcycle. The suspension of the latter is amazing!

    Just finished the Saturn V! I need to build a better support system for it. 
    Agreed - leaning towers tend to make for bad supports...
    That was so bad.  Awful!

    I would tell him that he should feel bad for that one, but we all know @SumoLego feels no shame! :P

    ^ I think Likes should be deducted for trying too hard or a truly bad one and that was indeed.... a truly bad one.  I am not surprised you booed yourself.

    We went to the Leicester Square store for the first time yesterday. 10 minute wait to get in so not too bad, although it wasn't that busy inside so I'm not sure why they were making people queue. For a flagship store, I wasn't that impressed. It looked much bigger on the TV documentary. The Tube, Big Ben, and especially the wall mosaic were great, but the rest was no different to regular stores. I was quite surprised at customer service too. Upstairs knew nothing about the birthday set voucher from the calendar, so we had to go downstairs (luckily no queues at the tills). Downstairs then claimed the only birthday passport stamp was upstairs, and both claimed not to have the Leicester Square stamp (eventually downstairs found one). Lots of staff around, but chatting to each other rather than customers. Do they really need four people on the door? I'm glad we saw the models, but I'm not sure we'd go again for shopping. Didn't buy anything in the end, just got the stamps and the birthday freebie.

    ^ I visited the Leicester Square store last year and wasn't enormously impressed either. I'd just been to the Whisky Show with my brother, so I was obviously fairly well lubricated at the time. So, even with the enhancements of 'beer (whisky) goggles' it didn't really wow me.

    ^ Oh, and I should add that I now have a pounding headache and feel fatigued as hell, so maybe I should lay off the big builds for a while... :)

    @CCC did you then go to the M+M store across from Lego Store at Leicester Square? It is scary in there. Scary!

    Wow - almost the opposite experience that I had.

    Admittedly I went on my own whilst in London on a work trip. I went in the evening - no waiting to get in, the staff were all chatty (to the customers) and they were giving away polys to the kids in the store and marking up CMF bags so people knew what was in them!

    @SirBrickalotOfLego Thanks for posting the photo of the Diner next to AS.  That staircase and the top two floors look kind of cramped when set next to another building.

    No problem, although personally I think it looks pretty good. Here’s it from the other side;

    I think it looks equally as effective, but I’m more drawn to the initial one. If you want any other configurations, let me know, as I have all the modulars since 2013 + the Grand Emporium.

    ^ I think it is better like this.
    Although splitting the two blue buildings with a contrasting colour modular may look even better?

    Opening 10 New LEGO Batman Series 2 Minifigures... No dupes and only 5 more to go to have the complete 20 if my feeling of the bags is accurate to the predictions made.

    Definitely, I’m thinking the PR.

    Wouldn't the 50's Diner look best next to the Palace Cinema? Or am I just horribly mistaken?

    9 out of 10 mystery bags guessed right. Vacation Alfred somehow turned out to be Killer Moth. So 5 more to track down, Vacation Alfred, FaF Alfred, General Zod, Black Vulcan and Vacation Dick Grayson.

    Yep Diner definitely looks better that side of assembly square but I think that's because the walkway doesn't feel as cramped. I think any building on that side won't do it any favors though.

    PS. Recently changed my username : scoiltreasa >>>>> Coolguy5000 to go with my bricklink username.

    Picked up a second 21 litre Really Useful Box in the Hobbycraft sales. We bought one after Christmas to put all the new train set bits in....it was already full and we still had two boxes of track and the Winter train to go in. A second one means we can divide up track and rolling stock nicely. We now have 21 litres of track!

    That’s where I’ve placed mine, I think it looks fantastic.

    Man... Look at the dust on that Palace Cinema........

    I ordered parts via Bricklink in preparation for when I recieve this book:



    Can’t wait for it to arrive. I’ve seen a couple of previews, and it looks really good. I plan on building the Ferrari 488 GTB from this.

    I'm looking for a way to display all my Suit guys in a moc, but I currently have zero inspiration.. I've searched the entire web for some examples, but all people make are vignittes or display minifig cases. 

    Has anyone have a good idea where all the suit guys could come together? I've come up with a birthday party, carnival or fairground.

    Try a masquerade inspired by the scene in the peter sellers Pink Panther film.
