    I pulled out Benny's Spaceship! #70816 in anticipation of his new crew that should be arriving tomorrow. I'd forgotten just how large it actually is. I swear, it's twice as big as it was before it was packed away. :p
    My two year old daughter has been playing with this for weeks - "daddy's big blue rocket ship" - and now she has the new Space Squad to add to it she couldn't be happier..! She even calls them by their names; Benny, Kenny (yellow), Jenny (white), and her favourite, Lenny (pink).

    Finished bags 1&2.  Glad to have gotten it just before retirement.  If it’s not the grandest modular ever or my absolute favorite so far, it’s definitely a worthwhile build.  The humor of the money laundering & bank heist ranks right up there with DO’s cookie operation and will make a nice end to my street.

    ^ Two of the audience appear to have gone beyond grey hair and are just bones (to be rolled, of course).

    i built the dune buggy from #42077 last night and i think it looks so much better than the rally car. unfortunately, there are too many parts left over, so i will probably rebuild the rally car for display.

    Just got back into Lego in what seems like a lifetime. Decided to go big and get the creator roller coaster #10261

    I really under estimated how many 4000 odd pieces really were!

    Got this year's employee gift (ebay) just in time to build it for Christmas. Each of the three presents holds a classic minifigure.

    Building #70657 Ninjago City Docks.  What an enjoyable build!

    Also, it’s nice how they’ve split it into a lot more discrete steps than a modular.  Makes it easier to sit down for 30 minutes to enjoy some building, rather than tying up the dining table for hours on end.

    Mixing miners and explorers -jungle and volcano ,I only have small sets but a processing plant for the gold ,energy types and ancient ruins  could be a cool project as a "how earth could be treated" with the larger sets

    Finally got around to building the Diner and a couple of TLM2 sets (the 4x4 isn't pictured)

    Anybody know what I happened to be watching at the time of the photo? :-)

    Also, you can see my wife tends to go a wee bit overboard in the decorating!

    I don't have them handy at the moment but you can see them in this video review. There is a pirate, a nurse, and a blacktron spaceman.

    ^ Always reminds me of the movie. In fact I bought that set because it reminded me of the movie.

    Finished building Von Nebula, who will take center stage in my Bionicle/Hero Factory gameroom display. They were all sitting in a storage box & I decided to make use of em.

    Finally got around to building Ship In A Bottle, and my it’s a beaut. Much, much larger than I had anticipated too - earned its place atop the bookshelf, rather than the Lego shelf.

    So random.  My mind is blown.  (I can sonewhat understand the Candide in that mix, but an Arthur Miller masterpiece... wow.)

    @SumoLego I am a connoisreur of many things! And while Lego is one of my many loves, books will always be that #1 sweetheart to me. Death of a Salesman is an absolute classic.

    There’s about thirty more I have that are either on lower shelf levels or tucked away on other shelves, he’s a master of his craft

    ^ I think Mort was the first book that had me laughing out loud when I was reading it.

    Absolutely love Pratchett!

    Building the crawler from #60080-1 Spaceport (2015), a set until 3 days ago I didnt know existed! Its shuttle seems identical enough to #3367-1 (2011) which I have 3 of, to use with it. Last summer I built a decent version of an older launch site set from collection, but modified that crawler to accommodate the newer 2011 shuttle.

    Just finished #70828. It was a pretty enjoyable build and I'm pleased with the final result. There are more parts in vibrant coral than I thought. There's not a huge amount of variety in part types in that color but the overall number of parts that are there is good. It's a pretty good boost to my teal collection as well.

    #70827, meet #70829.I thought there would be a little more to it. A lot of Unikitty gets left behind.

    I'm trying to build a petrified troll for my LotR display, but I'm not sure how to make the head. Anyone have any good ideas or inspiration for how to make stone statue faces?

    Could something like a Brickheadz head work, or would that be too large?  That’s kinda what your idea in the bottom left with the brackets & roof bricks & 1x1 rounds reminds me of.
