    ^Congrats, Chris!

    I just missed out on a bulk lot that had this set hidden in it. (Or at least the baseplate, boat, sail, and a couple of figs)

    Looking forward to seeing your whole build come together!

    Though I'm still waiting for orders from BnP and PaB for bricks in the right colours, I've completed the rest of my #31120 castle MOD.



    I don't think you need right colours, that looks amazing!

    I see three 2x2 corner tiles and four 1x4 arches that look like they’re waiting to be replaced. And a 1x2 brick with bar on the end?

    @Astrobricks you missed the four soldiers who are out of uniform, they're wearing borrowed pants. Somehow I managed to spend over $70 at BnP for the missing parts but of course that was in Canadian funds... :)
    I think #31120 makes a wonderful playset - I like that it is a completely enclosed castle  but opens easily to access the interior.

    #75311 Imperial Armored Marauder. I've made a few modifications already: removed the 1x2 plate with rail (I think it's called that) in front of Greef Karga so he can sit, and added what I call mini frying pans to the tops of the side cannons to match pictures online.

    Is it worth the price tag, would you say? Hypocritical question on my end since I’ll get it regardless but still curious…

    Well worth it, IMO. I paid $5 extra at an independent hobby store, but saved more than a gallon of gas vs. going to Mall of America next weekend (but I'll probably go anyway 😁). It's small, but dense. Lots of features: all the hatches, the side storage compartments with crates.

    3/4 way through the Daily Bugle and just realized that the green goblin bust out is a permanent feature and not otherwise reversible. I’d think for this size/value set, they could have provided options. :o(

    All the parts needed to build the glass front without the 'bust out' are contained in the build with the 'bust out' - there is an interview with designer Mark Stafford where he states that he designed it so both versions are possible (can't remember where I read that though).
    Even though not part of the instructions it is possible, I know because I built it without the busted glass front, and needed no extra parts.

    Well yeah, Camouflaged Outpost is fantastic, but #6077 is great too! I got it on my way to South Korea (where I never found any LEGO- but I brought a 3-gallon popcorn tin full to get me through). It had the new catalog- which showed the Pirates!

    Yeah I was scratching my head thinking “Forestmen didn’t use Medium Azure plates!” until I read the post more closely… :-)

    I’ve been on a speed champions kick here lately. I’m just amazed at the detail packed into such small builds. The Ford GT is beautiful in person and the Bronco is packed with pieces to achieve such a realistic look. It’s like a little brick when you pick it up. The new Batmobile feels like an unofficial speed champions set to me. :)

    Had a relaxed build of the #31109 Creator Pirate Ship (which I picked up used for $35 a few weeks ago) while watching the Olympics yesterday. Overall enjoyable build. I'm not sure if I will end up holding onto this one for myself or passing it down to my son. It's not necessarily a set I wish to keep out on display but nonetheless I'm glad to have gotten a chance to build it!

    #70614 Lightning Jet, from my latest haul. A few parts & 50% of the figs present. The "STATIC" stickers were there but too ugly to salvage, so livery scheme is my own (yes all you sticklers, those ARE City-themed stickers. Deal with it.) 🤪🤪🤪

    Working through the backlog, and I've finally started #10224 Town Hall

    (I know! but I've just never had the space before!)

    I've clearly got soft, because this is brutal.
    30 bags, 15 of which are numbered "1" so that's about 1,000 pieces to deal with all together, possibly as much as 1,500? The instructions are old-school 10-30 pieces at a time too.

    I've never been a sort-then-build kind of guy, so they are all in a big tray.

    2 hours of building while watching TV and I'm about 8 steps through. Thoroughly enjoyable.

    Makes me realise how much Lego hold your hand through the build these days.

       Don't feel too bad, I just got around to building Assembly Square late last year and was very impressed with it. Probably my favorite modular so far.

    I call fraud on that plumbers van, no plumbers have pipes that clean & neatly tied down on their vehicles, I should know, ours never were... :)

    I've just started building this thing, dragged from the backlog pile as a nice quick build, looks like a lovely display piece. 



    Turns out that might have been an expensive decision though!

    Just finished #75312 and I'm really impressed with the accuracy and detail achieved in such a little ship!  Interesting and fun build - it's a nice addition to the other smaller scale sets in my opinion.

    I'm just happy we have the UCS version that is something close to minifigure scale that vaguely matches up with UCS MF.

    This isn't it - and it looks very toy-like compared to the figures.

    Still building #10224, and it's great, obviously.

    I seem to have mislaid several pieces though.
