    Bought and built 60042 High Speed Police Chase last night. I like the gold rims on the 2 dirt bikes and appreciate the lady robber. The cop favors my wife's late grandfather(He was an officer, too). Wonder if he's Polish?

    Not building, but taking apart. Taking my Winter Village apart for another year.

    Just finished my oversized Rancor pit that goes under my oversized Jabba's palace (made from 2 kits). Only thing missing is that the tower section bolted onto the side of the palace doesn't have an add-on to the rancor level underneath it. Was thinking about adding a couple of cells off the Rancor pit and under the towers to house Chewie. Just need to order some parts to do it as i'm all out of stuff i'd find suitable, including some of those rocky wall pieces the Rancor pit pillars are made with. Good to have 4 Gamorreans in there, but only 2 have axes.

    I'm usually into Star wars but for some reason I've been building mechs and robots lately, this one I built today.

    Built #70403 today with my four-year-old serving as parts monkey. I really love this set. Of course, the giant dragon does not hurt either.

    No Kidding! Will have to pull out the minifigs and give them rides on Mr. Eagle's back! This could take a few years...

    Are you sure @StormKitty didn't just bully you into buying that one set instead of all of them? ;-)

    Building and rebuilding #31021. The kangaroo is just weird, but the monkey and toucan are cute.

    Just finished modding the truck from Agents #8630 into a dark green 4x4. Shortened the suspension and added a unique power-dome over the engine that came from Exo-force I think.

    ^Hmm...that's a LOT of modding! I can only see about ten shared bricks (the grill, lights and wheels)!
  • BumblepantsBumblepants DFWMember Posts: 6,102
    ^ It was pretty much the chassis and suspension that stayed more or less the same. I mainly didn't want to take credit for the rubber Technic suspension system since I didn't come up with that at all.

    I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be a squirrel, if you're referring to #31019. Of course it doesn't look much like a squirrel, either, with ears that large.

    Finished building #10243 PR. The most beautiful Modular yet. But somehow I feel a little bit cheated due to the smaller size. A few more studs depth and a brick or two taller would have made it perfect.

    The tiny bit it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in beauty and detail.

    Another one.

  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,939
    This past week, I have been attempting a minifig-scale(-ish) MOC of the RSI Aurora spaceship from the upcoming Star Citizen video game.

    The challenge here is that I'm trying to build it with only pieces from my childhood loose bricks collection (ie, not from sets). This means I'm limited to pretty much just classic "brick" pieces, flats, 45 and 30 degree "slopies" and a few basic SNOT and other novelty bricks (recreating it's slightly odd cabin with classic windscreens has proved difficult). This is further hampered by the fact that my brother and I significantly downsized our collection when we moved last year, and furthermore, most of the remaining bricks are in our 'city' (more like tiny village) layout!

    What can I say...I like a challenge. :)

    I also just finished building the Parisian Restaurant. It's my first modular, so I don't have any others to compare it to, but... wow! I love it, the details are so much more intricate that I am used to for a Lego set and so pretty to look at. Plus, it was a gift from my hometown best friend, which makes it even better.

    Only thing is, now I want all the other modulars :(

    I'm currently breaking my promise to myself not to build my Pannier Tank engine until the weekend. There's a couple of Bricklink orders I'm still missing, which is delaying things, but I've built individual sections of them, with the revised promise to myself that I won't actually put them together until the weekend!

    And yes, I'm building two... Photos will appear here on Sunday (assuming I receive the BL orders).

    Ive had a train building last couple of days, built the #7898 yesterday and just finished the Horizon today.

    Not happy about the #7898 since its missing the cargo wagon.

    Not so much building as unbuilding the #6990 I was lent over the holidays. Was great to finally get to build and play with this legend of my childhood. Will I be able to resist buying one for myself or has it managed to satisfy my monorail needs (at least for now)? Not entirely sure.

    I know, what a mis-timing on my part! But I'm gonna blame Lego for this problem, like I do for all my problems... ie, being broke... ah yes, it's a love/hate relationship I have with Lego...

    An attempt at a Lego Store MOC, until I ran out of pieces again. Why is it that I never have enough of the pieces in the right colors when I need them? Huh, why! Off to sell another kidney...

    @khmellymel, we need to start a support group!

    Finished my spaceship! Pictures below!
    The first one is a reference from the actual game (though mine has an intake thingy on top due to my original reference picture being of a different version):
    image
    The next one shows the actual ship (please excuse the lack of photography skills. I am using my phone and a white dust sheet for the background). I have had to make some design alterations/compromises. Especially where the cabin is concerned. How on earth do you replicate that with classic Lego windscreens and a very basic cabin piece?!
    image
    The third picture shows the cabin closer up, as well as my doors, which I am particularly proud of. Though not transparent with a special slidey mechanism (like the actual thing), they are attached by an ingenious design of my own: the 'dish' pieces are held in place by the pressure from the three 'handlebar' pieces around the frame - you can kind of see it on the 'closed' starboard door in the second picture, behind the grey crate.
    image

    [Edit:] Oh yes. I completely gave up on landing gear by the time I got to the end and had more or less run out of useful pictures, so it has more of a sort stand thingy in the middle.

    @FrictionPin Oooh - my city needs this building! Do you have the Lego Store Employee to populate it? Your MOC is fantastic.

    Why is it that I never have enough of the pieces in the right colors when I need them?

    = the MOCers lament, right before heading off to Bricklink or Brickowl.

  • FrictionPinFrictionPin Member Posts: 144
    ^Thank you @klatu003, I appreciate the kind words. Yes, I have 4 Lego Store Employees ready to serve customers as soon as the doors open. Oh yes, I have that MOCers lament on a post-it note inside my wallet...you know, where the money is supposed to go.

    Further to my comment the other week, I've today finished building my two 0-6-0 Pannier Tank engines.

    The Dark Red one has PF integrated into it, while the Black one can fit PF but doesn't yet have it, instead having brick-built 'placeholders' for the PF gubbins. Both use Medium Driver wheels from Big Ben Bricks in America. I'm also waiting on a custom order from America for 13-long connecting rods, which should finish them off nicely.

    For people here in the UK, they will be on display (along with my other train MOCs) at the Bradford Brick Show on 8th/9th Feb, and at the Yorkshire Brick Show on 22nd/23rd Feb.

    Can you spot the differences between them? (Partly forced on me by some parts not being available in Dark Red.)

    Built the Cuusoo Curiosity Rover #21101 yesterday with the kids, they loved it as did I, Had to pry it away from my son "it's for display only". I hope they make more of the NASA space sets I have seen in Cuusoo, maybe make a series of them.

    Put the finishing touches on this in the early morning hours. I try to make a title 3D mosaic for our LUG displays (and for a profile pic on our facebook page). We were a little late for the holidays this year, so I tried my hand at the yeti instead.
