    well #70316 is now done
    also did not say this before but did #70310 about 5 days ago.

    here is a nice image of #70316



    i am thinking of leaving the pet shop in all my images so you can see how it match's up in size.
    right now it just there as it the only place i have for it. :)

    This will probably come across as a bit rude, but I have to disagree.  That's not a nice image.  You need a better camera!!! :)

    that is the best Camera i own, and it a 720p. Logitech HD Webcam C270 have a look.
    as i not going to spend money on a Camera that i could be spending on lego. be happy i am not using my iPad 2. or my iPod 8gb. (its old. so old that it no longer gets new IOS updates.)
    i also have a Fujifilm FinePix A825 but i feel the Logitech gives a better image!.

    then the Fujifilm FinePix A825 may be better it is 8.3 megapixels.
    i could do a test image of the same shot and see what the Brickset forum members think.
    thing is the Fujifilm eats AA's like crazy.

    no. as this is the only place i can show off what i build as ever one i know is boring and look at me like i am 10 when i say the word lego.

    I'm just concerned that if I see another picture of #70316 infront of a pet shop I will start to think they come in the same box ;)

    oh well half of the pet shop build is still in the box. waiting on me to get 1 more pet shop so i can do a combine build of 2 pet shop's in to a 32x32 build.
    and i keep the sets waiting to be built on the back of the table.
    that way it is easy to pick what to build next. :) well for me any how.

  • mr.pigglesmr.piggles Snow FortMember Posts: 326
    There's no need for voting, just do your pictures however is easiest for you. For straight out of the box sets, it doesn't seem like it'd matter. For cool MOCs, probably.

    I'm not sure I can tell from those pictures.  Do you have some more test shots?

    There's a lot of detail that can be seen in the Fujifilm shot that is not there in the Logitech pic. A couple of sets of rechargeable batteries are a good investment so one set can charge while the other is in use. 
  • MattsWhatMattsWhat Studley, UKMember Posts: 1,643
    I'm going to ccccombo break the #70316 with my current modular build. An early go at the middle floor. I build almost as slow as @SumoLego so might be a while yet!

    ^actually managing to build two nights in a row. It's unheard of. Still, that'll be it for a bit. At least I have some more frontage and some insides coming together. No points for guessing it's modular origins but for the super spotters I moved it back a stud to line it up with the laundromat of brick bank.

    or you could gift them to me. :)
    i will give them a good home. :p
    sorry had to be done.
    this is a joke for any one who not work that out yet.
    still no one who likes Lego will ever say no to a free unopened Lego set :p

    @brumey
    i hope you have fun building them

    Only now just getting round to building the 3rd build of #31025.
    Had the other 2 builds up for a week each and the missus hasn't made the obligatory remarks about Lego out all over the place.
     Either she really doesn't mind the set and has excepted the hobby or has been trying to think up inventive ways of making it into a big enough blunt object to finally get rid of the problem. :)

    Fixed this about 3 months back, it is an alternate model using the Detective's Office set. The creator of this model uploaded detailed photos of it on Brickshelf  (see below link) that allowed me to build this model :)

    http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=559042


    that looks cool. think you can build it in LDD?
    then upload the file to brick safe and link it here?
    also what holds the main door in place?

    and thank you, now i need to buy 3 of this model.

    I've never really used LDD before, plus it's not my MOC just reverse built from the original in the link provided.

    Main door is "slotted into place" as seen in below picture.

    I spent a couple of hours last night putting together all my Classic Space (grey/blue/trans-yellow, plus an Exosuit) collection:



    Thanks to @MattsWhat for the final piece of the puzzle, #924.
    you are missing Benny's Spaceship Spaceship SPACESHIP!.
    ok so it did not come out until 2014. but it's LL code is LL929.
    oh i know that others will say that it not right to have it with the older set's
    but it is part of the theme. as well as the Lego Movie theme.

    that all said it still look's Dam Awesome!

    @chrisalddin I'm not missing Benny's Spaceship and I do love it, as a set, but it's just toooo big! #928 looks like a hang glider in comparison...
    I was planning on rebuilding my #70816 and putting it with the collection, just for fun, but it doesn't really go. Even the Exosuit is oversized for the theme...

    Where's my "like", by the way? ;-)
  • bandit778bandit778 Docking Bay 94. Member Posts: 2,026

    Thanks! Although, now I realise that I need two more plates (probably craters), to complete a nice rectagular area, and I'm not happy with the placement of the crater plates that I do have... Bit of a re-jig is in order...

    i am not yet at the need to brake down set's to make room in my storing place.
    so i just have to pull #70816 out of it's storing Box to display it.

    maybe display it close by Or flying?

    Still super sick, but tragically bored... so today I built 41077 Aira's Pegasus Sleigh from the comfort of buried under blankets. I've been holding off on building this for a while... but it's just so lovely! I know the "girl" sets aren't for everyone, but Pegasi! It's totally swooshable.

    It's really neat. I love the dragons in the upcoming Elves sets, but one thing that disappoints me a tad bit is that there aren't any new vehicles, because the two we got in the 2015 sets (the Adventure Ship and Pegasus Sleigh) are both really, really great designs!

  • mr.pigglesmr.piggles Snow FortMember Posts: 326
    I love the dragons too, but I also feel like there's something missing from the upcoming sets. I can't quite put my finger on it, maybe because it's a lot of little cottages. I guess the vehicle quota is filled with impressive dragons. It might just be a sense of wallet preservation though, because it seems like there's a LOT of them, and they're all pretty sizable, and I need to be a little more choosy.

    made the dragon from last flight of the destiny bounty. It's not very good. I dunno if you can balance it on its 2 legs.
