    I've just been putting together two recent eBay acquisitions, #6880 Surface Explorer and #6927 All-Terrain Vehicle, to add to my Classic Space collection. Both are in good shape, but need a bit of a clean-up, now that I have confirmed everything is present and correct.
    I've also managed to complete BrickLink-ing #6861 X1 Patrol Craft and am very close to completing #6901 Mobile Lab, but the Trans-Green windshield (Slope 33 3 x 6 with Inner Walls) and Trans-Green Brick 1 x 4 without Bottom Tubes are impossible to source in the UK, so I am going to have to venture onto the Continent to get them at some point.
    Finally, I bought the #31129 Creator 3-in-1 Majestic Tiger, which was a really great build and I have BL-ed the parts to make JKBrickworks' Swimming Koi Fish mod (https://jkbrickworks.com/swimming-koi-fish/), which I'm looking forward to building shortly.

    More #8182 vehicles done & the "slammer" (IDK why I bothered making that 😂) dine in yellow. The slammer used a couple stickered liftarms I got from a haul & ID'ed by OldTodd in our "what's this?" topic, so that was kinda seredipitous.

    Tonight I also learned I have a white stickered 2x4 brick from the 'copter in #8196 so I'll whip it up soon.

    Just finished building #76202 Wolverine Mech Armour, find it rather curious that when Lego updated the hips they didn’t change the box art to reflect this change. Even the instruction manual cover shows the original mech (as does the products page on shop.lego.com) but the instructions steps do show the updated pieces!

    I've been building all of the smaller Classic Pirates sets from 1992-1997 which I've aquired since Bricks Cascade. With the piecing together of the 1729 Barnacle Bay Value Pack today, I've now completed all of the small Pirates sets!



    I also built set #6249 Pirates Ambush earlier this week.

    The clear blocks don't click cleanly.  Should have buried the white plate inside.

    Bricklink order for #8182 & #8197 sticker sheets arrived EARLY (2 DAYS from VA to MN!!!) & I applied most if the stickers.

    Also finally built #76162 which was in the $31 31-gal haul from this time last year. IDK where the bad guy Taskmaster is; there were A LOT of nibbled/marked up pieces & I trashed whatever parts were chopped up regardless of rarity or value cuz IMO sub-quality parts are cringey.

    Finished stickering (is that a word?) & expanded the pit for #8182. The pit's 2x4 hole didnt seem to present a real challenge so I quadrupled it & added some bones.

    Also completed the cars from #8197. Man that cop car is sssssexxxxaaayyyyy!!!

    Fixing up my Toy Story sets. #7594 needed a lot of work, #7593's curved parts seem to have yellowed, so I'm trying to debate whitening, or getting new ones(where the Star Command logo goes) Thoughts?

    I think it's great! I don't think it really needs more architectural details- the alternating recessed windows on the front give it plenty of character. 
    You just need a bike rack in back for their color-matched bicycles... ;)

    Thanks!  And that's a great idea! I've long been of the opinion that the modular line requires a full-fledged bike-shop.  It's a great opportunity to support that by adding bikes, and fits the theme pretty well.  I'll see if I can squeeze in a few: worst case scenario one lucky resident will get one in his room.

    I like it as-is @Phoenixio. I think the colors liven up an otherwise brutalist building. There are actually some large apartment buildings in my city that were designed this way back in the 70s. It could be the dorm at Lego U :-)

    @Phoenixio I like it!  A little Cubism, a dash of Art Deco...it's very Miami.  I can easily picture this on the Intracoastal somewhere between Miami Beach and Lauderdale.

    I like it. It's very simple and minimalistic, but in a good way. The details show that you're skilled and every piece and feature is meant to be there.

    Definitely a bike rack, front or back or even side.

    Placed my first Big LEGO purchase in ages just to get all the Star Wars goodies.
    Received them all in a short space of time so was sat there looking at a stack of Star Wars sets to build, couldn't decide which one to go for, so built the Mustang instead.

    Then because every good Mustang should be modified (and because the set came with all the bits to do so), this beauty has gone fully super charged.

    Really enjoyed building this. I cannot fault the building process (the printing down the side of the car could be slightly less wobbly if I'm going to pick any holes though). Would highly recommend this set to anyone even if you're not really a car person (which I'm not) as it's a fantastic looking set.

    So I added the #75298 Tauntaun to my little Lego Star Wars display. I've ran out of products of interest in the current line up so it's either retired sets, or waiting for something new to come along. It's a shame really as I was looking to add a few more tie fighters and another X wing for may 4th, but by the time I decided to pull the trigger, the Aunt Beru kitchen was out of stock so I didn't bother.

    Finished #9575 during a tornado warning. Guess it's the wrong kind of weather.

    I just finished assembling #75271 Luke's Landspeeder that was new, albeit in a damaged box. I took a small bit of inspiration from the recent UCS set and capped off the three engine intakes with a 1x1 black dot / circular tile. My Jawa Sandcrawler arrived too but I'll not have time to finish it before work or my wife gets home so I'll save that for another day!

    You guys hiding Lego from your wives😂 My girlfriend gets mad if I get new sets and build them without her. Anytime I buy myself a big set, I get her something to build for herself so she lets me build alone in peace

    Is it #31120? Actually, it looks like there might be twice the amount of some parts. Are you combining two or making a modified version?
