    @GrannyLEGO that build looks great!  My favorite part of that picture, however, is the labeling system for your loose parts, especially the one titled “other ??? stuff” !  🙂 I need a drawer like that for all the parts that defy classification...
    Stuff is one of my favorite labeling words! Just think how many separate drawers I would need for all those pieces of stuff!

    Over the past couple of months I've been building a modular Chinese Restaurant to sit next to #80107 Spring Lantern Festival set. Having made myself a lightbox today, I decided to test it out by taking some (hopefully) half-decent photos of the building! :)



    This is INCREDIBLE!  Usually when I see MOC modulars (including almost all the ones on Lego Ideas), they look plain and/or boxy and don't have the finessing of the details and the character that Lego's modulars ALL have (except Market Street - which is not a good modular)...but this one has all that!  This restaurant has such intricate details and interesting construction techniques.  If you told me this was next year's Chinese New Year set that leaked, I'd have believed you!  I wish it was an official Lego set!  Please put this on Lego Ideas.  (They never approve modulars, but at least then I can hope!)
    Thank you! I think I'd need to take better lit photos before I ever put it on Ideas, and TBH I don't think I'd end up promoting it that much even if I did - I don't see the point in expending much energy on something which has no chance of success.

    I do appreciate the kind words though. This is my third modular moc and a complete departure in style for me.

    Finished the Magic Kingdom skyline by @BenBuildsLego (with a few changes)...

    I’ve been to WDW many times since the mid ‘70s, so seeing the Haunted Mansion and Space Mountain in micro scale is quite satisfying!

    And she's finally done. Just got to find a place to put her now while I decide what kind of shelves to get, and if they are ever in stock.

    I don't think my friends would understand if I canceled just to stay home and build LEGO although I bet most of you all would!
    We were late to lunch with the inlaws once because I just wanted to complete the next stage of Saturn V !

    Un-building complete (simply because I wanted the joy of rebuilding it again).

    That looks really good!  Such a great set... Recent posts in another thread have made it clear that the only way to display it is by hanging it from the ceiling like a disco ball...🙂

    I've been eyeing my Wall-E for this very reason lately. Maybe a deconstruct, cleaning, and reconstruct is in order.

    I don't think you've had more than your fair share of fun; you've had exactly your fair share! You earned it! When I got out my #6969 to verify the color of the light & sound element the other day, I pressed buttons a few more times than necessary. :)

    "What am I building right now?"

    In a hidden crater shrouded in perpetual night near the south pole of the Moon, Blacktron sympathizers work around the clock to mold bricks of explosive red rhydonium.  Stay tuned ....

    Does playing Tetris with sealed set boxes in order to make storage room count?

    Depends on your attitude as you put them up but Tetris definitely woprks as a play attitude

    Finally built the 40th anniversary Technic set. I remember looking at the original in catalogs when I was young... pretty nice tribute.

    I built #5976 River Expedition from the Jungle sub theme of Adventurers...
    I've been really itching to get into collecting both the Dessert and Jungle themes of Adventures! Sadly (probably not the best word choice since nothing about my Pirates makes me sad) the Pirates collecting is keeping my funds pretty well tied up.

    @Switchfoot55
    You could get a complete set of the Juniors pirate sets, which are much more affordable.  Unfortunately they look like Jack Stone meets Redbeard, but beggars can’t be choosers, right?…🙂

    The worst part is that they couldn't even get the look of Red Beard close to right in that Juniors version! The ship itself actually isn't the worst designed thing I've ever seen for the Juniors line.

    Try LEGO Trains prior to 2010.  Pirate ships will look like couch-cushion change.

    ...Starting with #10246, as I've built each one, I've left a little note on a small piece of paper that says "Built by Patrick and [SON'S NAME] starting on [DATE STARTED]" and I've been hiding it into some hollow part of the building...I expect that in a few years if/when my son pulls something apart, he'll find the note.
    HA!  What a great idea!  A time capsule of sorts.
    That would be a unique scene to build in a park near the Town Hall, with the Mayor reading a scroll and townspeople gathered around a couple workers digging the hole...
    Except I don't have a modular city layout, so this would look weird on top of a giant Star Destroyer.

    I'm slowly working through a bit of a backlog, so it's going to be a bit random.

    I've started on #7595 Toy Story Green Army Men. It's lovely! So much green!

    [Rebuilding] my Wall-E. I forgot that the neck is so annoyingly loose.

    [Rebuilding] my Wall-E. I forgot that the neck is so annoyingly loose. 

    They actually issued a redesign of the neck sometime during the run of the set to mediate that issue.  If you haven't already done so, and you have the instruction book with the set ID number on it, you can likely still contact LEGO CS about getting the parts needed for the revision as well as potentially the updates instructions (or at least an addendum for them) with the new build for free. I'm not sure they will still be doing the replacement since its ~6 years out now, but I would say it's still worth checking if you haven't already.

    ^I think they'd still be willing/able to do the parts for the revision, if not the instructions. From what I recall, the parts are all common.
