    I’ve taken a screenshot of your layout to use as evidence in convincing my wife that a kitchen island is a viable Lego display option… :-)
    Goooooooood luck with that.

    One of those lovely lazy Sundays. Sat with Mrs Speedy to build the flowers this morning over a coffee. I took them into the garden to take a photo and a bee tried to land on the orange poppy!
    Spent most of the day watching motor racing on TV while Little Miss Speedy splashed in her pool. Then collected a freecycle LEGO bag of bits.
    Couple of older Creator sets, the green army men from Toy Story minifigs and an Atlantis polybag that's still sealed.

    Ha Ha Ha! Never happening in my house...
    Decided to try building a small town with the new road plates and the few modulars I keep assembled. Sadly space isn't plentiful so I can't keep it up indefinitely, but it's fun to look at for a while.

    Seriously loving this little layout.  Thinking about the modular I'll be building soon (due to me purchasing for my wife to give to me for Father's Day), I can't help but dream of putting something similar together.

    Belated Happy Birthday @JudgeChuck.  Wish my family would surprise me like that for my birthday tomorrow.  They complain that I don't tell them what I want but when they ask & I say Lego sets and/or Lego Gift Cards they just roll their eyes and give me candy I don't like & gift cards to the Home Improvement & Department stores that I rarely shop in.

    A bit like my family, sometimes they are like : "we don't know what to buy for you"

    I received an email from Unity thanking me for providing feedback about creating a Unity/Lego game. They gave me a unique code to claim a Unity minifig. Check your emails if you took the survey!

    Firstly, happy belated birthday, @JudgeChuck! Secondly, @karrit, maybe your family doesn't WANT to get you any Mine just thinks I have too much and I don't need it. My dad hates it, his mom does too, my grandma(Mom's mom) is the only grandparent who understands it. We'll just say for my dad to understand,(and maybe not even then,) I'd have to get a set through IDEAS and have the box in my hand...

    Thanks all for the wishes. I (honestly!) try not to make much fuss over my birthday, but this year was very special all-round and not just for the Lego!

    I’m in the middle of a bit of a LEGO mystery…

    Wanted to do a little bit of building this evening so went to my stash and grabbed the (still sealed) copy of #7599 - which I got in a trade with @sirrich69 a couple of years ago.



    Opened the box and noticed something odd…blue boxes visible inside…



    Three copies of #8073 inside, also all sealed. 

    I wondered if maybe I’d bought them at the show we did the trade and put them in the Toy Story box to save space…but the set was sealed far better than I could have possibly resealed at a LEGO show.

    messaged sirrich to ask if he’d ever opened the set, but he hadn’t…

    I do remember buying one copy of #8073 from the same show a couple of years prior to the trade and I only have one logged as owned on Brickset…


    I’m completely baffled by this one. All of the #7599 pieces were there so it’s not like someone did it as part of a switch. I seem to have gained extras from this but I’m left confused as anything.

    While photography is most certainly NOT my skill (as evidenced by the other build/collection photos I've posted) I have been wanting to up my game at least a little bit. I have had this scene idea in mind for a little while and wanted to try my hand at bringing it together. Fairly satisfied with the initial results.
    Cool! But my first thought was, how will he ever spend it? ;-)

    I purchased more storage containers (again) for my collection giving me some room to grow for sure. I have spent more on new storage for my Lego now then Diagon Alley would have cost.. Part of me is twitching over that detail but I feel really good now that I have all nice matching storage so for the long run I think it was a good decision. I also came across #60233 Donut Shop Opening for 40% off and got my military discount of 10% on top of that! I always wanted the set but found it to pricey at full retail. What a great build it was, the heavy lift truck is just a great design and my son and I are already having fun with it. Poor robber has been squished by the donut around 10 times just this morning lol.

    Space-holders until the complete line of buildable sneakers are released.

    Sneaky people who sneak everywhere? They'd, by that definition be sneakers, making them a shoe-in... Also, still sorting. Then I need to find 2/3 of the Incredibles sets. Haven't located everything, yet.

    Went to the LEGO store yesterday. I planned to buy the 60's Batmobile #76188, but they still don't have any in stock. I still enjoyed walking the store as a little Father's Day treat to myself.

    Also, I just witnessed the Amazon Prime Day deal for the Razor Crest appear and sell out within 60 seconds. $78!!! I almost bought few in the heat of them moment, but thought better of it.

    Trying to figure out a better storage/organizational system for displaying sets and also storing parts. My organization has always been pretty poor but I really need to get things in order.

    Where does everyone go that they find Lego at the thrift store? Doesn't sound like any Goodwill I've ever shopped at.

    Goodwill auctions lego on ebay. They know its a better value so they get more online. Value villiage and salvation army are hit and miss. Flea markets and garage sales too.. Just have to go a lot and have lots of luck.

    Cool finds @EGRoberts! I’d never seen those 16x16x2 1/3 baseplates before. They came out in my dark age. Nice tower too :)

    Sadly my Lego life has taken a bit of a back seat due to work and in the process of buying my first house, hopefully will be moving early August and I'll have my own Lego room :)

    Popped into the Leciester square store on Saturday, wow it was busy, but decided to pick up the Birds of Paradise.

    I've been building a few smaller sets in my backlog, including a couple of Lego Minecraft ones, but I got a hankering to do another skyline, after helping my daughters get the parts so that they could build @BenBuildsLego's Beauty and the Beast skyline, which turned out really nicely!
    My next proper build will be my new Death Star, but I've got a lot of sorting and organising to do before I can settle down to that!
    I've settled on his Jurassic Park skyline this time around, as it has a lot of green and generally looked appealing, so I've raided my collection and placed BL orders for that. I'm also readying myself to tackle a more architecture-styled one and really like the look of Neuschwanstein Castle, so I think that will be my next project. I'm going to try using BrickHunter for this project, to see how it performs overall. Some test runs seem to be positive, so I'm hopeful this might minimise BL orders to a certain extent.
    Finally, I am slowly gathering period parts via BL orders, to make up a couple of Classic Space sets that are very difficult to get in the UK, #6901 Mobile Lab and #6861 X1 Patrol Craft. Progress has been good over the last couple of months, but I've got a little way to go still.

    I get most of mine from Savers. Sometimes there will several weeks with nothing, and then a dozen or more bags show up all at once. I tend to buy everything I can afford when they get a bunch, because the parts for any set could be scattered across many bags. I like digging through the piles for unique parts and then rebuilding sets based on those parts. I'm currently extracting #60003 and #60004 from a ridiculously large bin of parts I picked up a couple of weeks ago.

    Ordered the few parts I didn't have in my stash for the build and take Castle Byers Stranger Things set. I ordered a set of printed tiles for the stickered parts a couple of years ago and only found them the other day.

    Highly disappointed by legocon. Most of it was chatter of star wars sets already leaked and vidiyo, nothing new was shown and they showed very little content. Would love for legocon to focus on all themes not just the ones they want to push to sell in the moment.. Seemed like a cheesy forced commercial peddling Vidiyo.

    Congratulations!  I enjoyed your interview on Beyond the Brick… No surprise that the Classic Space version has my vote!  Good luck moving forward in the process — and maybe @Huw could give your project a plug on the main site?
