    ^^&^^^- As a woman, I should be insulted by this, but as the mom of a teenage boy, I get the off color humor. Pretty clever there @rancorbait. Are you taking lessons from @Pitfall69?

    Bought the Cuusoo Back To The Future set =D Not started building it yet though...

    Ta-da! Here we go, my first MOC.

    Nice Job.

    @LegoMom1 Haha, I only have a year and a half to wait but but ah well, close enough.
    One doesn't need lessons to be ignorant and dickish. kidding @Pitfall69. :-)

    After a brief sabbatical from Lego purchases to fund a car repair, I sold one of my other cars and now have enough money for both so to celebrate I purchased 7900 from eBay, it's a considerably larger than I first expected which is awesome.

    Having fun building #3536 and #3538 , bought them together on the Marketplace for €17,50. Top deal!

    At the end of the month I intend to sever all ties with the LEGO online community, avoiding all leaks, rumors, and preliminary pictures, with the goal of walking into the LEGO Store in January and being surprised by what I find. I will now commence taking bets on how long I'll actually last.

    Have just completed the Titan with Sam. It is absolutely incredible - so well designed and thought through. Love it. 5 stars TLG.

    Just received The Lego Adventure Book (vol.1) from Amazon. It's got some awesome models and techniques in there, can't wait to get home and read it properly.
  • RennyRenny USAMember Posts: 1,143
    I had bought instructions for a custom "Edoras" (King Theoden's building in Lotr) and just finished placing orders for about 5300 parts ...phew! Now the painful part...waiting for the parts to roll in :(

    ^ Got a link/picture for that? :)
  • RennyRenny USAMember Posts: 1,143
    Sure. These are images from when the creator put them on Eurobricks. I think the creator did a really nice job with it although at time of purchase the required piece count was not mentioned.

    I can hear that PaB wall calling your name. Your first MOC was a delight. I can't wait to see what you come up with next.

    ^ I actually have two further ideas, both on the same footprint. However, my first MOC used twelve 16x16 plates, so the first step is to get twelve more. Unfortunately this month has been an expensive one, however it is nearly September... (gosh where has the year gone?)

    If you're wondering how I managed to use twelve 16x16 plates, I used 6 as the base, with 2x4 and 2x6 bricks joining them together, then used another 6 on top of that to create a solid base for the MOC (and it really is solid!). I didn't want to use baseplates, which would have flexed, so that was the best option.
  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332
    I cant wait to see them, having seen and studied the tutorials youve done a really brilliant job, cant believe it was your first. of course youve now set the bar really high for your second.

    @Renny where did you purchase the instructions?
  • RennyRenny USAMember Posts: 1,143
    On ebay, the seller almost always has it relisted every time it ends. Just search under edoras instructions and it should pop up. I bid $16 for mine. He will send you a link to 5 files : 3 pdf for the instructions, a word document with a parts list and the same list in a text file.

    Crashed and burned tonight!

    Was moving my sons Vampire Castle and ooops. Fell apart in my hands.

    Oh well the fun part about LEGO is you get to rebuild it. Tomorrow brings rebuild that along with the Ghost Train :D

    That just happened to me too! Had to watch the AF animated build video to put it back together ha.

    Will get my Lego collection back tomorrow, after its world tour from the UK to Germany, Holland, Spain, Egypt, India, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand.

    It's been weird having no Lego for 2 months but the even weirder thing is that I haven't missed it one bit.

    Had a great Lego haul this weekend, won roughly 100 Lego tracks on eBay for very little, got the free Legends of Chima stuff courtesy of the Daily Wail(not that I collect but for so little money it seemed worthwhile) put an order in on Brick Link for the big tower crane and a friend of mine from Norway sent me a BR Lego Minifigure as gift, very kind of him.
    I also purchased some blue Lego boards for the Harbour section of my Lego city looks much better than carpet although my ever expanding city is making navigating my bedroom increasingly harder, may have to rethink my strategy.

    Currently disassembling #8070 Supercar to create space for something new; I built and posted a review of the set on Gimme LEGO more than 7 months ago now, and its time is finally up. I will miss it - an uncommonly good-looking Technic model I reckon. I've got about 2/3rds of the way through disassembly while watching live football on TV and now my fingers are too sore to continue....

    Just finished building my Picnic at the Pet Salon :)
    A Friends modification using the Daily Mail picnic poly, a few small friends sets and the Pet Salon. Even the local squirrel collected some nuts. :)

    My next project is the LOTR Pirate ship.

    Lego Pilgrimage #2: Legoland California

    Great day out (Saturday) with the nephew & niece and got a chance to see the famous life-size X-wing! It is so freaking huge(!!!) in real life. Even after seeing pics from Time Square, it was hard to imagine how truly large it is. Only when seen in person can you grasp the incredible amount of bricks used to build it.

    Outraged. I just learned that series 11 will not be available in Norway. Actually, I'm more sad than outraged. What did we do to deserve such a treatment? :(

    According to the Ambassador forum, this is true for Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Belgium, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg. They won't be found in toy stores, but can be obtained from Legoland, LEGO Brand Retail, or [email protected] online.

    We have no Legoland, no brand stores, and I don't want 10 mountain climbers from [email protected]

    I'm just happy there are resellers out there. Way to go, LEGO!

    Just felt up a bunch of Series 7 minifigs at Target. (I was in serious withdrawal) Scored several bunny suit guys, got at least 2 of everything else I really liked, not to mention a complete set. For some reason I never bought series 7 when it was out.
  • BuriedinBricksBuriedinBricks USAMember Posts: 1,366
    Just ordered parts to build a minifig scale Tumbler set I grabbed instructions for (from somewhere, months ago). Apparently not CUUSOO, unless the project was removed. Either way, looking forward to building another version.

    @Thanos75-Are you going to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
  • Thanos75Thanos75 Member Posts: 1,117
    I have been there several times before. I am from Cleveland. I only moved to the big easy about 6 years ago. I'm headed up to see family and to help out some friends at the Ohio comic-con in Columbus.
