    I've been permitted to move my Lego room to the second largest bedroom instead of the third largest. Makes a fair bit of difference and allows me to get additional tables in easily. Couple more cabinets to move in yet. Looks empty compared with the last one
    @milamber

     Looks like lots of room to spread out... I have that same Calvin and Hobbes box set-- it's a classic to be sure!  And is that a Watership Down print on the wall?  If so it seems we have similar taste...

    Looking for an unboxed but still bagged, not built #70170. Found other things but not #70170.

    Yeah looks a bit bare just now, but have plans! Not Watership Down, though I can see why you'd think that. It's an original, one a of a pair - the other is a rabbit in the snow scene. Bought maybe 35 years ago from an up and coming British wildlife artist who we hoped might go up in value. He did go up quite substantially, but mainly for his African wildlife paintings. His British ones did appreciate, but not by as much. Still, it's nice to look at!

    Actually talking to a forum friend earlier and her favourite cartoon is C&H and she also has similar books. Perhaps we should ask for a minifig series.

    Approximately how many studs deep are the narrower sections?

    Great layout, by the way.  I'm sand green with envy!

    That would have me buy a full box for the first time.

    I really grappled with the relative dimensions of my tables.  I didn't want them too narrow, or too deep - but I wanted some depth to the city.  A single row of modulars just seemed too linear for my taste.

    (I ended up going three roadplates deep, plus a half-plate on the front edge for a railroad line.)

    Of course, space.l constraints of the actual room certainly don't help!

    I 100% agree with you. I would love to have a layout arrangement that allows for more depth, like being able to build a city block and being able view it from all sides. This current layout doesn’t let me view anything from 2 sides besides the amusement park in the middle which really limits play and display value in my opinion.

    However, I’m super thankful to even have this much space dedicated to LEGO seeing how much others on this forum are really limited in space.

    I get hung up on roadplates.  For a six or eight modular block, you'd need 20 or 22 roadplates, and a table four plates deep - plus room to get around.

    @Bumblepants Mega Construx are actually pretty good, as long as they aren't mixed with Lego. I'll admit to having a fairly large collection, mainly of their Halo stuff. XD

    I bought my first 2 Mega Contrux sets - both are the Game of Thrones, Battle Beyond the Wall and Drogon

    Status today: road plates and base plates arrived, already ran out of green base plates again. Typical! Never enough pieces on hand

    Got my latest two Creator Expert vehicles up on the shelf today. 

    So now I have all of my large vehicles (with their micro companions) displayed together except the Ferrari which still needs to be rebuilt. 

    @pxchris

    If I get you for Secret Santa I’m going to MOC a micro Mustang for you - just needed a reason!

    Also, it looks like you need the Mini Cooper and it’s companion mini-me Mini

    Do you think they are worth the current fairly low price? Keep being tempted, but look fairly uninspiring in the reviews

    My local supermarkets have their toy catalogues out for Saint Nicholas. Auchan manages to underwhelm like every year, but have this gem in their folder where they used pictures (not 1 but 2!) of 2002's #7194 Yoda instead of this year's #75255 Yoda:


    At least they managed to use the correct set number...

    The Mini Cooper actually just doesn't hold much interest for me. I've looked at it a number of times and my feelings for it are just... meh.
    Funny enough though, I really love how the Speed Champions version of the Mini came out! haha

    I do also have the SC versions of the Mustang and Ferrari F40, however I've been thinking that I really should get the parts to re-color the SC Mustang blue to match the CE version.

    The vehicle I've really been wanting to MOC myself is the Model Team jeep though! I've had the itch to jump in and work on that one for a while.

    I still want to re-color my Mini red so I can relive the chase scene from the original Italian Job... "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off !"  :-)

    Hahaha I'm just watching the 4 Toy Story movies. Going backwards from 4 for some reason.

    After a day of clothes and book shopping I thought I would buy the Architecture US Capitol Building. It can't weigh that much can it?
    I was wrong. A large and heavy Lego set with clothes and 4 books is a pain in the ass to get on a bus with and walk home with. Then I had to the supermarket for a couple of things. Then walk home in 33 degree heat.
    I have no energy after that. Just sitting under the air conditioner trying to get the energy to take the new set up into the attic.

    Im currently sorting #7593 from a bulk lot. One more Toy Story set closer to owning the ones I want!

  • pxchrispxchris Oregon, USAMember Posts: 559
    The truck was a hard one to find at a price I was willing to pay... but I eventually found a seller who didn't think the thing was worth over twice the original retail price. Worth the wait! It's a fun build but it looks even better there on display.

    Now I'm just trying to decide if I actually want to start keeping an eye out for #7594 or not...

  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 The Northwest, USAMember Posts: 1,619
    It's definitely on my list to find. There was a local seller recently that had four of the old Toy Story sets for $80 total. I was nearly physically sick when I missed it.

    @KungFuKenny That's adorable, in a creeepy sort of way, except, I have have to imagine a spider trying to cuddle its owners would be hard, and gross. And poor Dog Walker Lady(Series 19) would just run away, if she had to use her shovel...

    Took my son to Smyths to spend his birthday money, they had an instore demonstration of Lego Hidden Side so he got to indulge two of his favourite things together, Lego and playing on a tablet!



    He enjoyed it but it didn't tempt him from buying more City Lego! Personally I thought it rather poor as after the initial scan of the Lego bus there seemed to be no more need for the physical bricks...

    Had a little crappy moment yesterday: decided to finally start building my city properly. To do so, I need to get some space on my table, so decided to clean up in one of the huge closets we have in the attic as to store the smaller sets cluttering the table at the moment. These closets are inherited from my granddad, some very ugly and slightly unstable but functional seventies storage. But instead of simply taking the few sets and many boxes in there out, after the first set i took out, the closets’ shelve with the most sets on it decided to shift... causing my #10220 to crash into the floor... 

    today, I reinforced the closet and finally got to do what I needed. Now I’m taking apart the wreckage of the T1, and will rebuild soon.

    Lazy Sunday, Little Miss Speedy is at a sleepover. Clocks went back so an extra hours sleep. Walked off a full English breakfast with Mrs Speedy to the local shops and nabbed five JW magazine polys for a fiver. Anybody need dinobabies ?

    ^ looks like a great time... I’m envious of your Lego haul there!

    I was at the Lego Store here in Austin today on the rumor that there might be Dark Red 1x2 plates on the PAB wall.  Luck was with me as I am trying to Bricklink a Robie House #21010 and over 700 of these plates are called for.  I also filled up a few cups of the parts below....

    The more exciting find for me was that there were a few of #40367 hidden on a small shelf near the back... I had missed Lady Liberty initially and was sad when it went out of stock on Lego.com.  All in all a pretty good Lego day!

    I think it's funny that they released the Lady Liberty and Ghost BHz just as the BHz line seems to be either ending or going into hibernation, as they are two of the best BHz in the entire line imo.  Actually, toss the Dragon Dance guy in there also.  If they had released those three at the start, I actually think a lot of the AFOL reception to BHz might have been way different.   Although I guess it's a real question of if they have the necessary experience to design them that well when the line started, or if it was experience they gained over time designing 100 different ones.

    Since all of my scary sets aren't with me right now, I thought I'd better get something for Halloween. At least, that's how I justified this to myself...
