    I'm not a PB&J fan, myself. Reeses is fine, thanks. Well, today, I built a small wheeled multitool for Rex, for @TheOriginalSimonB's contest.

    @monkeyhanger like any self-respecting Brit I drink tea from a silo.

    I don't drink tea (or coffee) but I do drink my beer like that (a 1L Warsteiner glass stein).

    @TheOriginalSimonB Beautiful! Are they all GT40s? 
  • TheOriginalSimonBTheOriginalSimonB Felixstowe Member Posts: 1,483
    @Modeltrainman yes. I was sorting the other day and realised I had the windscreens to make a couple of replicas.

    Quarantine over, some replacements for a handful of sun-damaged yellow pieces acquired.
    Done! Very, very happy with this. It's not perfect, but for a set that's 33 years old, I've got no complaints. I'm counting myself as very lucky to have added #6987 to my collection.

    Thanks again for all the support in the "what are you buying" thread.



    Anyone else noticed the (Muppet) black dragon face?

    @bandit778 While the nostalgia is very cool, I come to this thread to see what everyone else is building. It's all very cool in it's own right.

    Got all the Bricklink orders in for my Jackal Staff Oasis MOC this past weekend. Then accidentally pulled an all nighter putting it together and filming commercials for it to be put on LEGO Ideas. Suffice it to say that this weekend has been crazy! 
    looks great! Will support once it is up

    @TheOriginalSimonB Thank you! I was trying to figure out how to do an Egyptian style lotus column and it reminded me of that flower piece. And then I put in some technic gears and it just worked!

  • Glacierfalls265Glacierfalls265 USAMember Posts: 254
    @Switchfoot55 Thank you! It was originally a digital model I'd been saving for a future contest entry but then I decided why not just build it with physical bricks
  • ModeltrainmanModeltrainman In the Disney Infinity Toybox, Windows, or digging through LEGO parts in the USA.Member Posts: 536
    @Glacierfalls265 , voted, as I told you on Twitter, but I must ask. Those flower pieces aren't stressed like that with the gears kind of in them?
  • Glacierfalls265Glacierfalls265 USAMember Posts: 254
    @Modeltrainman Nope, the gears rest on top of the flower pieces and the petals are open enough that it allows them to fit!

    i'm currently trying to rebuild #2507. i'm about half way through and it looks like the dragon is missing one of his feathers. i'm really disappointed about that.

    Looks like that piece is pretty inexpensive on Bricklink— just find a seller with no minimum buy and you should be good to go...

    @KungFuKenny Dumb question, but why is no minimum buy good, exactly? I've always  found minimum bus of $5-$10, but even after I hit whatever threshold, I still feel obligated to make the cost greater than shipping. 
  • TheFewTheFew EnglandMember Posts: 1,522
    Base built! Bar 4 of white 2x4 tiles that I need to find...

    I meant that if @blokey9 only needed the one piece, then “no minimum” stores would suit better— speaking for myself, I usually can’t resist adding interesting pieces to the cart that I find while browsing... shopping for one piece inevitably ends up in much bigger order!

    In all seriousness, it looks to be 1x1 round bricks with an octagonal plate with bar frame, then some more 1x1 rounds, plate, repeat. Green flower stack on top. Then 1x1 green plates with clips on the small leaves to clip onto the bar frames. 

    All just a guess of course....

    Even though the film has been delayed twice now (grumble, grumble), at least Lego finally got to release this set! I think this is the most excited I've been for a Lego set this year! The minifigs are fantastic, and the build was a rather unique experience. :D

    Time warp... Christmas 1977, I was eight years old. I'm holding #712 Sea Plane; on the table is #400 Building Set.
    Sea Plane is my 12 y.o.'s favorite old set we have!

    The monorail looks fun. Is it easy and fun to run? How do you change speed?
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 1,602
    @Modeltrainman All the monorail sets are the same- you can't change speed. It's just on or off. You turn on the power on the battery box, then each set has two special track pieces that have a rotating "switch" which causes it to reverse, stop, or continue forward. Despite the simplicity, it's a lot of fun. I have all three sets, plus the extra track packs, so I really ought to make a huge layout. I'll post some close-up pictures after I have some breakfast.

    @560Heliport cool! Video would be excellent, if you can bear to run it.
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 1,602
    Here are some pictures. The motor from below, to show the switch: the points sticking out to left and right. It's one piece; when it gets moved to one side it turns on the motor. On the grey track piece, the 2x2 tile with an arrow is on a 2x2 round brick which is on the part of the track that activates the mechanism.
