I recessed the window surrounds for some visual interest and thought the coffee cup detail would be a fun nod to the shop below... now it’s on to the interior!
- Guy that watched Rebels over the lock-down in April and had to get a Ghost/Phantom and has yet to build it -
- Guy that hasn't built his "Gotta get it day one, and build it immediately" SHIELD Helicarrier -
- Guy that still hasn't build is UCS B-Wing -
- Guy that still is 'looking for a space' for his UCS Super Star Destroyer-
Ugh... I think I suck at my hobby.
I can outdo that. I still haven't built my Carousel, Ninjago City and Death Star bought in 2017. We won't even get into 2018-2020 large sets that have been bought and just sitting there. I'm kind of reluctant to build them in all honesty. I want to build them but then I'll be thinking I don't have those nice big heavy boxes in the corner anymore. Cantina is the only big set I'm going to buy and then no more until I build the backlog. I bought the Star Wars advent calendar yesterday but that doesn't count in my books.
PS just saw you were from Chicago. I was just looking up the Congress Plaza Hotel. I stayed there a few years ago and I had no idea it was a 'haunted hotel'. I had no hauntings going on when I was but some of the stories out of that hotel. Jeez.
#70620 NINJAGO City
#70657 NINJAGO City Docks
#9476 The Orc Forge
#75270 Obi-Wan's Hut
I'll be building Obi-Wan's hut in the next day or two and the Bookshop fairly soon, once I've done some re-arranging of my small City.
I'll probably still have Ninjago City and Docks still in their bags when the new Ninjago City Gardens is released!
@gmonkey76 is just stockpiling for my Secret Santa gifts...
I think KungFuKenny hit it on the head: life has a way, especially with kids, of eating up free time. I wake up and "go to work" (at home), finish work and immediately take over for my wife who has spent all day working herself, taking care of the kids, teach said kids, feed them, clean the house, etc.... Dinner comes and goes, time with the kids, and by the time they're asleep, I'm 80% there myself.
I always have this thought that I want to have enough time set aside to build a set in full, uninterrupted. Exactly when that will be is beyond me at this point in life.
So, I build when I can. BUT, the backlog continues to grow...
Did I mention the 14 sets I have arriving in the next two months?
And I've still got a few first-generation SW sets to finish sorting. Also have plans for a modular-sized version of the Sanctum.
We're hoping to build a garage with some living space on a second floor, which will become my new LEGO room. Though this is mostly in the hands of a zoning committee at the moment as we need a variance since it will be outside the setbacks defined by the county we live in.
All seem OK to be me. Has there been a problem with brown parts? :-S
"Yeah yeah nerds, we know it's not movie-accurate. Live with it!" 🤣
Now physics - that's another kettle of fish.
Probably to do with being a "crushing hazard" or something...
You were keen. I'm waiting till 15th for the mini mindstorms GWP.
“The Nightmare Before Christmas” is one of my favorite Halloween/Christmas movies, and re-watching it inspired me to plug this year’s Brickset Forum Secret Santa event. Many members find it one of the best parts of the forum, and there is still time to sign up here...
We can almost guarantee that no severed heads or killer wreaths will be sent out this year!
