    I was going to build the Lego Taj Mahal, but decided to build the Lego Saturn Rocket instead. I'm all thumbs with this build so far and plus I feel like I'm trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. LOL

    @TheFew did you sub out the orange pieces for flame yellowish orange, or whatever Bricklink calls this color? The tail in Orange is horrifically expensive. 
  • TheFewTheFew EnglandMember Posts: 1,474
    @MrJackson yes the orange was a substitute. I used the tail from #31042

    I finally opened the Ninjago Movie blind bags. Looking forward to put them in my Collectable Minifigure display:

    I have to say, the shark army general has some of the absolutely best printing I've seen on a minifig, and it's one of my favorite CMFs because of it.  I give it bonus points since it ties into the Garmadon's Lair set, where it shows the same character being fired out of the top of the volcano to provide a really great before and after.

    Just finished #71618 Destiny's Bounty. What a great build. I've never built a Lego ship before, so it was a completely new experience. Though putting the sails on was a bit nerve wracking; I was convinced at least one was going to rip!

    Finally cracked open my #75192 that has been patiently waiting for me since 19th Sept.

    Bag 1 built. Will aim to do bag 2 tomorrow, although bag 2 doesn't look half as involved as bag 1. Bag 1 took around 2 hours, while watching some series 2 GoT in the background.

    I decided I didn't want to wait until I'm an expert to dive into a Creator Expert set, so I'm building #10255 Assembly Square.  I'm having rookie issues - I had some trouble with one of the bakery windows, for example, but I'm having a blast.  I had to laugh when I read a review that said it took the builder 7 hours.  I've been going at it longer than that, and I only just started part set 3.

    Enjoy assembly square!  It was my second after detectives office, so I got a little quicker at building it.  But for me yeah, 7hrs is about a set of bags, not the whole set too!

    Well I tried my first Brickheadz just before Christmas, and not surprising I’d try the Cap’n (hey I don’t mind being called Captain America).  Found a new example though of his earlier constraction counterpart on Bricklink for a reasonable price so decided to try my hand at it.  It doesn’t really feel like LEGO though, something I’m sure I’ll think when I finally try my hand at modern Technic.  Are all constraction builds like this?  All weird ball joint pieces forming a skeleton, & body pieces that click on the balls?  The build was a little fussy, but the result is an impressive enough figure.  It just doesn’t quite seem like LEGO, closer to Technic I guess.  I did however find a first.  The blue technic pin that hold his shield in place is a common enough extra part where it appears in sets.  I got 4 extras in this set for 5 total!

    Most pre-2011 constraction sets have armor shells attached by pins and/or axles rather than ball joints (as well as more single piece limb and torso segments with pre-molded armor and mechanical details, rather than generic body segments you fill out and decorate with additional armor).

    Since 2012 the mostly ball joint based builds have remained the standard, but there has been a trend towards using more basic Technic parts like pins, axles, gears, connectors, and panels in addition to that (and even occasional System parts) rather than builds that are almost purely shells and beams. K-2SO is a good example of a recent constraction set that uses basic Technic much more extensively.

    Thanks for the insight Aanchir.  I looked up K-2SO, checking the parts & reading the instructions.  It does seem like that build is much more technic like.  Looks like an interesting direction for constraction, unlike the one I tried which was all ball joints & shells that attach to them.

    Baze Malbus has quite a bit of Technic as well.

    #10259, but there's a bag of pieces missing! Frustrating.
  • M1J0EM1J0E Calgary, ABMember Posts: 462
    Thanks for the tip Fowler!  I had no idea as I’m really ignorant to this type of building.  They certainly could do superheroes again by the look of some of the awesome Star Wars figures they're doing!

    @M1J0E: they definitely should, because, in my opinion those first Super Heroes figs weren't that great...well, Iron Man was cool, but the others were just weird. I was a huge fan of Hero Factory (and still am) when it was out and there are quite a few neat Heroes and Villains there as well, but they tended to be fairly simple. I'm hoping for a reboot soon, but they may not since the Star Wars CCBS figs seem to be doing so well. The funny thing is, I actually hated the Baze fig when I first saw it. He looks so derpy on the box, but when you crack open the box and build him, you won't be disappointed with him (you might be with his gun though). Lego is getting a lot better with the faces. If you want even more technic mixed with CCBS, then you should check out the Scout Trooper and Speeder Bike and keep your eyes open for the AT-RT that's coming out this summer.

    Thanks again Fowler for all the help!  I’ve never had any Star Wars set before, so I really am ignorant to this style of building.  I’ve never done hero factory either.  But done well I can certainly see the appeal.  I’m not necessarily ready to seek out even Iron man from the original super heroes, but applying some of the build techniques present in the Star Wars figs, they should hav ea hit on their hands applying it to superheroes.  Be interesting tos eve what they do with their style of building beyond Star Wars in the coming future as IIRC even Hero factory is done as a theme.  Even if I hadn’t done anything with that theme, I still have to lament it’s demise as it reduces available variety for all.

    The Aston Martin Vulcan is one of my favorite modern cars, so I tried to replicate the monstrous track car in LEGO:






    I’m really itching to attempt a Saleen S7 in blue as my next build, but, my mind works like a vehicle name database. Saleen S7, 1919 Cadillac Type 57, 1954 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn, Maserati Bora, Ford F-150 SVT Lightning, etc. The ideas and possibilities are endless.

    started on the silent mary. the 1st bag felt like building a star wars set. or the 2015 destiny bounty. that's pretty weird to think you are building a pirate ship when you don't have a complete hull made of metapieces after 2 min.

    Well I am 7 bags into Destiny’s bounty, and I may have the Lego ship bug now! Lovely build so far, and hoping to finish today. Only negative is that I'm missing one of the anchor chains from my set, and I don’t onto have one that length in my Lego storage so I guess that’s a call to CS at some point. But it has not put me off the set at all!

    ok, so I finished the Destiny's Bounty...#70618 and I am trying VERY hard not to look for other ship sets on eBay! What a great build, lots of fun, and a lovely display piece. Its the only Ninjago set I own currently, but now very tempted to look at some of the other sets.

    Only change I would suggest would be the sails, they are fantastic, but look a little small for the size of the ship. 

    I really hope that Lego give us more ship builds in the future! Anyone recommend any other ship based sets?
