    ^ Interesting, never came across the box for #21010 or #21005, but I didn't think that #21017 was as big as #21042, then again it has been at least year since I've seen an Imperial Hotel set box in the wild.

    Beginning to think we'll have to rethink where we're storing all our unopened sets, as we're currently storing them in the yet to be completed Lego room (think we may need a bigger room at this point).
    Bah!  You have room for atleast two more boxes before you hit the ceiling.

    What you need are higher ceilings.

    Higher ceilings wouldn't hurt, but what we really need is the room to be two or three times the size that it is. Another option I'm considering is converting the shed we have out the back, but that would require insulating it, as it's a sweat-box during summer & I'm more than just a little concerned as how that would affect our Lego over the long term.

    Been on a bit of a LEGO break, too hot to build and too busy at work. But I had a site visit near Bluewater today so popped in....they had all the Xtra polybags, so I grabbed a couple. They also had the older style train track packs on sale at 30% off, so got myself another set of points and some more straights.

    I also had a stack of the calendar vouchers that had all expired tucked in my wallet with my VIP card, I knew I'd get nothing from them, but she grabbed a couple of the monthly build polys and put them in too.

    I built a Porsche 904 Carrera GTS yesterday but didn’t post it so I’m posting it today:



    I also built Hachiroku24’s Nissan GT-R yesterday, and what’s really cool is that he used red plates and two red curves to replicate the red stripe that the GT-R Nismo has:

    Built my monorail the other day.  Unfortunately the motor is not working.  I'm going to disassemble it as I already have parts to expand the rollercoaster on the left.

    Well, I'm finally moved my Lego Roller Coaster downstairs and I'll be building a Lego Amusement part that consists of the Roller Coaster, Ferris Wheel and Carousel. The Roller Coaster and Ferris Wheel are already downstairs. I just have to do a minor fix to the Carousel and setup the other table that I bought from IKEA. You can't beat the cheap furniture that you get from IKEA. 
    I plan on doing a much better video in the not so distant future.

    I made the Pirate Coaster today and found it to be a great little ride for the youngsters in my Theme Park.
    It even seems bigger than the box would suggest.
    I have the chains to motorise it, at some point in the future, when I see how to do the big Expert Coaster.

    Wow!  That's excellent!  Lights and all.  Mouse hole/mouse/cheese is nice touch.  I can only dream of being anywhere close to that someday.  Great pic too.

    Got another AMG GT3 set and Outdoor Adventures in the mail today. I have already begun to mix and match those minifigure parts, but here’s the GT3 next to my first one, which was converted into a road car out of the box.

    Btw, if someone could let me know if my images are too big, I’d appreciate it. It’s hard to tell from an iPhone.
    Most of your images are too big. The one before you posted the quote above was a nice 200kb.

    The ones in this post are 2.8MB and 4.0MB each. That's huge. We don't need 4032 x 3024 pixel images, I'm sure you'll agree.

    I think I might know why. When I took both pictures I used the take photo option that pops up on both Reddit and here. The other pictures were taken with the same thing, but I saved them again after I posted it iirc.

    Let’s test this out:

    Been a bit quiet lately, between the heat, the football and the pain the Lego has had to take a bit of a back seat. Still managed to do a little bit of building every day though, so still not missed a day since January 1st :)

    Starting to feel a bit better so managed to get a nice buioding session in with my son. Finished my Ferrari (#10248) and he built the Ninja Nightcrawler (#70641). Really enjoyed building the car and glad I broke the seals :) Some great techniques in there and it looks very sleek.




    Also getting ready for our holiday at the sea-side and packed a whole load of 3 in 1 sets for us both to build. Plus some Spinjitzu Master spinners to do some spin battles :)

    @omnium that looks great!

    Been super busy lately, so not a lot of time for LEGO recently... at least until I went into the local Bricks & Minifigs a week ago and saw a #6988 in pretty good condition.  They weren't able to guarantee it was complete, but they thought it was.  Haven't had time to take it apart and make sure yet, but even if I have to replace a few pieces that's fine, because I love the old late 80's and 90's Space sets so much.

    Also, even though I haven't been able to be very active lately, hit 1k likes today, so I feel like I'm still contributing at least a little bit! :)

    @Switchfoot55 -
    Nice to see you made it back.
    Despite the fact that fireworks shows lose a LOT of their pizazz once translated to film, I did watch this a day or two ago and was REALLY surprised at the scope and quality. I was expecting a few minor booms and bangs and then that was it not the huge production you've put on!
     May I ask what sort of a cost your hobby involves? Ive always thought it to be considerably expensive?

    @MAGNINOMINISUMBRA, I'm fortunate enough to receive a budget from the church that I shoot for to cover the cost of the product. However, consider that cost, plus all the additional equipment, licensing, software, etc..., it can really add up. Just the product for that particular show was about $3000. 

    At least with spending on Lego, your purchases don't literally go up in smoke after 30 seconds.

    ^When I think about how many Star Wars figures met fiery ends in the early eighties.... I know for an absolute fact that more than one vinyl caped Jawa met his demise because of the accuracy of Umperial Stormtriooper blasters...I digress

    That still sounds VERY cheap when I think about NYE fireworks displays where they brag about exploding hundreds of k worth of pretty colours! 

    Nice work mate

    After a few issues with my most recent [email protected] order, I reached out to Customer Service this morning to further discuss. We were able to trace the issue down to the shipping company, which cleared Lego of any wrongdoing. 

    Even after confirming Lego did nothing wrong, they still took steps to ensure my satisfaction and added some VIP points to my account to make up for the error. 

    I was pretty shocked and wasn't anticipating that at the start of my interaction. Not that I needed the excuse, but it makes me love Lego all the more!
