    I agree. That is a kickass robot! I could see an army of those in different colors with
    different domes for Captain America, Spider-Man, the Hulk...
    Do you have to buy the instructions from Rebrickable?

    No. I downloaded them to Bricklink's Studio and they didn't cost anything. If I ever meet Chubbybots, I'll happily send a cold one his way.

    Had some time this weekend and decided to finally bust out #21301 Birds. I've been wishing for this set for a long while and was able to pick it up a few months ago in a great trade with @KungFuKenny. It was a very enjoyable build and is fantastic on display!

    Nope... I suspect I’ll pass on D-0 also...Now if they come out with a brick-built Chewbacca so I can re-create the campfire Porg-eating scene, then I’ll reconsider!

    I desperately need to get that R2 in my collection! I looks so good next to the other characters!

    Same...
    I've been watching it on eBay for quite a while. I'm just going to have to pull the trigger one of these days.

    ^I've been slowly piecing it together through various bulk lots and BL purchases. Those stupid brown hoses is what's going to get me. I'll likely end up with LBG replacements for now.

    Felt like forever since I put a set together and since I've been eyeing it up I decided to open #40370 Steam Engine. I missed out on trains as a youngster, my focus was always classic space, but putting this together made me wish I'd had brick built locomotives as a child, can fully understand some people nostalgia for this set.

    Am working on a cemetery scene but at the moment I am in recovery from having to pick up a pile of 1x2 tiles where the bin holding all the colors carefully sorted tipped over and threw themselves all over the floor.

    I placed a Lego order to get the 3 GWPs but I also had a code in my basket from Valentine’s Day when I was going to order but didn’t, for a free Romantic Valentine Picnic and it’s showing that as having shipped. So I’ll be very interested to see if I’ll get 4 GWPs once my order arrives.

    I’m pretty happy with these 2 sets. They will be go-to play sets for the family that I don’t mind having out/messed with. The Expert modulars will remain hands off til they’re older.

    @Charmiefcb you might like this... I rebuilt #6180 Hydro Search Sub with as much yellow as I could. The teal 2x2 round plates are because I got a bunch of them from PAB, so why not?

    Love it. So many pieces that are no longer in production sadly. 90'a Lego had a certain feel about it. Building techniques have improved since the 90's but there is something about the sets of that time period.

    I especially miss those octagonal parts. They were in a few non-Aquazone sets; I think they'd be great for Modulars.
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 1,889
    Today being St. Patrick's Day, I think I'll build the 1997 Aquaraiders next: #2160, #2161, and #2162. I'm going to add Bright Green, Bright Yellowish Green, and Earth Green.

    If they could remove the studs on the side they would be great column pieces.
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 1,889
    There are some that are just columns. #6090 had 15 in light grey. The ones with studs are more common, though.

    Well spending time WFH has given me opportunity to start building my 3 Lego Expert builds I recently acquired. First up was #10252 VW Beetle. Quite a quick build, but particularly like the detail (especially how the surfboard came together). Looks better "in the flesh" then I was expecting. Second up is "in progress" the #10258 London Bus. Only on 2nd bags but enjoying this build. I hope I have saved the best until last, in the form of #10262 007 Aston Martin. 

    Still got a backlog of builds, including UCS Falcon and Stranger Things house, but the current builds I have on go are easier to display.

    It was then onto #10220.

    Have no real interest in VW campers but thought it looked interesting to build & I wasn't disappointed. Probably one of my favourite building experiences so far and the finished product looks far better in the flesh than any pictures I've seen of it. If you enjoy building and you haven't got this yet, go get it, it's well worth it.
    Really glad to hear this as I have just ordered it about 20 minutes before reading your post. Of course now I get to sit here trying to be patient until it and two other sets arrive #70431 Lighthouse of Darkness and #10262 James Bond's Aston Martin. Patience is not my strong suit and LEGO is slow sending <sigh>.

    @GrannyLEGO I ordered the Book Store at midnight EST and got a shipping confirmation from LEGO this morning! Anticipation is part of the fun . . . I keep telling myself!

    So, been trying to sort my parts, still #10194 needs to have the parts for the smoke deflector, and minor parts located, and #10020 is missing some handrails, but nearly done. #10022(all 3,) and #10025(both) look to be complete.

    I've done the Bookshop ... it's a very nice build! The townhouse with it is nice too although I don;tr quite like them next to each other. I may survive waiting, the #21320 Fossil set that I had on order finally turned up.

    @21320 decided to keep me up all night or most of it anyway! Finished a little bit ago and enjoyed it even though at parts it is a bit tedious. It is definitely one of those that it is hard to see what it is going to look like while you are working and then all of a sudden it takes shape!

    Cut the seals on the modular Bookshop last night. My daughter watched a youtube video of somebody building it recently and decided she wanted to begin with the town house, so we built the basement level after sunday roast.

    Had an extensive Lego weekend. My wife has been bitten by the Lego bug. And bitten hard. She's on the hunt to collect the needed bricks to build the Corner Café. She found a seller on line that had several lots of bricks that included many pieces that she needed. They also had a sealed #79111, which I was thrilled about. The shipment came in on Friday. Built the set and had a blast with my 3yr old. Then we moved on to #40370, which he loved. In addition, on Saturday, a Bookshop arrived. the Mrs. tackles the first floor with a gleam of joy in her eye For me, #75954 was started. there was also a #30556 that the 7yr old decorated with glee.  Man, this social isolation is gonna put me in the poor house..... Or before to long, I'll be able to build one with the bricks we have, lol.

    Moved onto the ground floor of the town house. A little disappointed as I appear to be missing a,1x2 and 1x4 brick in the green blue colour, there are however a pair of 1x3 bricks left over. I'll build the rest and see if they turn up in bags 7 & 8.

    ^^^ @Speedman29 look back carefully at what you have already built and bet you have a 1x4 and a 1x2 where there should be a pair of 1x3 's. I've done this myself or dropped a piece on the floor or, worst of all lost one under the furniture!

    We're pretty careful, all the pieces get tipped onto the tray. I've rechecked the build and its all correct. I suspect that the two 1x3s weigh the same as a 1x2 and a1x4 and its a mistake in packing. TBF its the first set I can recall having missing pieces or incorrect ones in almost 40yrs building!

    Quick online chat with LEGO CS and the pieces are going to be shipped out. They also said they'd send a little present for my daughter as an apology and to give her something to do during the lockdown. Top marks for customer service.

    I have to build on a solid color table top, otherwise I lose pieces in the patterns too easily. Heaven forbid a piece fell off that tray in my house. It would be lost to the owls for days...

    Taking a break from a building marathon ... I had several sets ordered figuring they would arrive over the next week or two ... ha! Five sets arrived within 24 hours plus a GWP train and I just can't leave them sitting there. The boxes sit there and YELL at me! I've done the train and #7597 Knight Bus and #70422 Hidden Side Shrimp Shack Attack and started on #70431 Hidden Side Lighthouse of Darkness. Hubby has run off to pick up pizza, that or he is hiding from his crazy AFOL wife who as an elderly high risk (COPD and diabetes) is staying home as ordered. The #10262 Aston Martin and #10220 VW Camper will just have to sit there and yell at me for now.

    Not sure how much of a dent quarantine will make in my backlog

    #40349 because doggie. usually I don't like BrickHeadz because of the odd proportions, but made an exception. Quick build even for a small set, and he is adorable. Goes well with my LEGO dog collection in general but especially #40201 for the Valentines theme

    Finally started #21312 for International Womens Day (March 8) and just finished it a few days ago. Nice display piece especially on a shelf with other space LEGO

    Also got to #75259 in recent memory.
