    ^ I'm drooling over that picture. I think I spy an Eiffel Tower, Grand Carousel, and Taj Mahal back there.

    ^Great, I just took another look. Those are some nice ladies on your arm @flump and now I'm green with envy of the ET, GC and TM.

    Wrong thread, sorry everybody else. One day, once the shelving's up, I might show the room off properly. :-) Until then, if you want, send me a pm and I'll send you an 'in progress' link.

    ^ flump, hope you're feeling better soon. I feel your pain as I'm sitting with my right hand bandaged from surgery, and a broken little toe on the left foot thanks to a step stool that got left where it was used and tripped over!

    @flump given your current altered mental status you may find the monster fighters to disturbing so for your own well being you best send them north ;-)
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,547
    ^ good idea Kev. I'm just round the corner, I could go round and pick them up and then you and me share them out :-)

    @flump since your brains elsewhere at the mo, fancy checking if all the pieces are there in my taj mahal? the morphine might make it bearably interesting.
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,727
    ^ Christ, I'd have to be near coma level for that!

    ^^ I see a meet on the horizon. :-)

    ^^^ Get your lame ass down here!

    ^^^^ I shouldn't laugh, but that sounds awful. :-D I'm sorry.


    Tell you what, I was feeling embarrassed by it all, and will probably be criticised by some......but what the hell!!?? This should boost your ratings @Si.



    Good effort @Si.

    ^^ Lol, I didn't get the morphine off the shelf in Boots! :-)

    ^^^ You send that down here - almost out!!

    And to think the rest of the world thought us nerds only put plastic bricks together in our spare time!

    Unfortunately I can't watch those videos due to my piece of junk computer. Either way get better soon @flump! And @AFFOL_Shellz_Bellz!

    ^ Shot glassing yet?
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,727
    ^ Today, I've actually given it a rest - have you not noticed the better rate of grammar today?! :-). Had forgotten what it felt like to have two feet on the ground. And now being sober, I get know how bad I've really hurt myself.

    Am definitely keeping some by for the next party though!

    Oh my! That second video. With the opening graphics. Spectator in background as witness. Instantly going into 'Downward Dog' position. Extremely not funny =X
  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,248
    ^ The second video is awesome. Love the edits to it and the appropriate music. Ouch on the fall but glad it didn't break your funny bone.
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,912
    Is it cruel that I kinda laughed at the video?

    But get well soon @flump! And @AFFOL_Shellz_Bellz!

    Oo-er - nasty little bump that!

    Thank you. Apologies, meant to respond to you on the day of the accident.....but it went straight out of my head for?! ;-) It is likely they are sat in my 'in' tray at work. Fingers crossed I'll find out next week. :-) Thank you again Paul.
  • tvihtvih Member Posts: 92
    Good thing about that tumble video is that at least you can easily see what went wrong, with the next time in mind :) Hope you're in building condition soon!

    Trying collect some of the older sets I used to own.
    Recieved the very first set I ever got in the mail, Star Fleet Voyager (6929)
  • tvihtvih Member Posts: 92
    Haha, man, that set name had me wondering for a second!
  • AFFOL_Shellz_BellzAFFOL_Shellz_Bellz Member Posts: 1,263
    Thanks, E1. The hand is a bit better every day. Getting ready to assemble 4643 after a bite of breakfast.

    Recently discovered Lego SW Maquettes and snagged a Luke just now.

    Twice as much minifig to love! But my hero Vader is too high up there to reach =(
  • JenniJenni JapanMember Posts: 1,390
    Discussing with my husband how to consolidate our luggage to avoid excess baggage fees, maybe 3 boxes of Olympic CMFs is too many. I'm blaming @legonut80, she totally egged me on :)
  • LegopantsLegopants GermanyMember Posts: 2,015
    Finally cracked open Death Star yesterday evening. Massive!!! The instruction book alone weighs a ton!
    Decided just to build the minifigs. Can't wait to get stuck in and build the rest. Reckon I should have finished in a couple of evenings. NOT! :-D

    It's a wonderful build. And yes, the instruction manual is hilariously big :D As I mentioned earlier it took me about 18 hours to build, though it would've gone quicker if I hadn't been watching TV at the same time and if I'd had more space to work with... but still, definitely a lenghty yet fun build! I also put the extra figs from TIE Fighter as well as the Stormtrooper from TIE Defender into the Death Star for extra coolness :) It should definitely have an auto-rotating display base though!
  • legonut80legonut80 UKMember Posts: 314
    Ha ha @Jenni I thought we did well, there was plenty more left in the stand :) as for the luggage erm eat the chocolates and donate some clothes to a charity maybe not the best of ideas though :)

    My status, My nearly 6 year old boy built Star Wars spaceships with the Lego at school today :)
  • JenniJenni JapanMember Posts: 1,390
    ^ Good on him! We're working on the chocolate :).

    Building activity is low at the moment, too much other work. But in between my administrative work I found time to write hundredth review, quiet happy with that achievement !!

    Just finished Death Star bag 2.
    Starting to look very "Death-Star-like" now.
    Having loads of fun building it :-)
  • JBricks27JBricks27 Member Posts: 674
    Just cracked open my death star. The instruction book is ripped and the sticker sheet was creased along 3 different spots. Was able to have LEGO send replacements, but I think this is crazy for a $400 set. The box wasnt sitting one shelf either; I had my local store hold it the day it was shipped to them
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,912
    Display is nearly finished, just a bit of detailing here and there and we are done! I'm going to get some closeup photos of the buildings on Monday and post them here, if anyone is interested.

    I had an amazing time working with Robin and a few people from the local LUG popped in and helped out as well. I was at the mall every single day and enjoyed every minute.

    I learned a lot of LEGO techniques and interesting uses of parts. Searching through dozens and dozens of boxes full of bulk LEGO is a dream.I was finally able to try out some cool techniques that I see on Flickr a lot that I wasn't able to since the parts weren't readily available.

    ^ I'm interested! You're from around Vancouver right @LegobrandonCP? I never knew there was a LUG... Van's my hometown, I miss it muchly *tear*
  • mathewmathew Member Posts: 2,097
    Just finished building #7946 (King's Castle). I stumbled upon it on Amazon as a Gold Box deal. They must of had one sitting in a corner. Box was kind of damaged, but sealed. Overall it's what I wanted, a 4-walled castle. The gate house was a lot of fun to build, but the rest of it is a little bland compared to the Joust set. Still it's a fun set and one that my son can play with too without me worrying about it being destroyed.

    Yes, I'm from Vancouver. It actually isn't called a LUG but instead it is a Club, but same thing. If you're interested, check out VLC.ca! :)

    Cleaning bricks big time. First batch of 25 pounds are soaking right now.
    Next task is sorting them all (after they've dried up of course).

    The DS really is the kind of set that if you could only have one SW set, the DS would be the one to have :)

    If only one could settle for so "little" though... so many more sets planned to buy, from various themes. Sigh!

    Just finished Bricklinked Cafe Corner. Only had to substitute a couple of minor parts. I just missed ordering enough of those parts but will order the correct ones during my next project. Also just picked up a Green Grocer. So I have all the retired/soon to be retired modulars now. Will pick up Pet Shop and maybe Town Hall next year sometime.

    Sorting, sorting, looking at Michael's for a better storage solution for small parts that we have a lot of, but not enough to fill our smallest container . . . Fail. More sorting after I relax . . . Hot out there today!
  • jlpythonjlpython ILLINOIS, USAMember Posts: 77
    Getting started on the Black Pearl; built the QAR last weekend and looking forward to this one as well!
    Also, reading all the storage suggestions and organization threads/posts here as my family and I move into a large house from our 2 bedroom condo in one week, and I get my own LEGO room! Really looking forward to this, and really inspired by what many of you have created in your homes!
  • AFFOL_Shellz_BellzAFFOL_Shellz_Bellz Member Posts: 1,263
    @jlpython Be sure to read the thread about "What have you done to your house to accomodate your Lego". There is some good info there.

    Will do - thanks! Looking forward to finally being able to spread everything out and see what we have . . .

    Caved in and bought the Hogwarts Express at 50% off. The lady at the counter allowed me to open up the box and check the contents. To my surprise, all 6 bags were there and the minifigs were in bag 1. But bag six was ripped open and the parts spilled out of the box. Now I have to count the parts... will post back once I'm done!
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,912
    Wait, anyone know what parts come in bag 6?
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,912
    Duh, just build bag 6 first. lol. So in conclusion, the parts missing were:

    1x red 2x4 plate
    4x Train Metal Axle

    The parts can be easily replaced online so a great deal overall.

    Have been waiting on ebay for SDCC figs the past 72 hours. But ended up with UCS X-wing, Rebel Blockade, Motorized AT-AT, finished my mini-SW collection, finished my Batman fig collection and another Chrome Vader NISB. Ebay is an evil distracting force indeed.
