    How did you find the Black Knight Mech build, @chrisalddin? I've been reluctant to buy it because of the price and because I felt it would feel repetitive after doing the King's Mech...

    How did you find the Black Knight Mech build, @chrisalddin? I've been reluctant to buy it because of the price and because I felt it would feel repetitive after doing the King's Mech...
    the only part that you have to do 2 times is the Leg's and the upper arms.
    and even then there is no more repeat then some of the other set's out there.
    he's a big boy to.  i found it a fun build.
    the little builds are cool to. the cage mini build will go well with #70323 when i get round to building it. and the evil horse *bike?* thing  is cool, and you get whiperella, as well as black Knight Robin. Price on the other hand. lego have it at £39.99. and Toys r us have it at £31.99 i remember it being priced up at £49.99 at one point but it look's like Toys R Us have cut that crap out. and now have it RRP at £39.99 as well.
    it is limited to TRS and Lego so £31.99 is not a bad price. i payed full price for it some weeks ago when i when on the trip to the lego store. the same day i picked up the GBHQ. my advise? get someone to buy it for you for Christmas. there, now you have a Free lego set. :P

    So I am finally done with this build. I rebuilt this four times: 1993 Mazda RX7



    I am still not sure if lights or no lights
    Love those. I haven't stickered up my Speed Champions cars either. Thought maybe I was weird. Nice to see someone else who doesn't do it. 

    I had had to rip apart my Ferrari truck for parts for an Alien Chestburster I'm gathering parts for.

    Wife's student brought her some Creator instruction booklets, knowing my boys & I are fans.
    Built the main model for #31017 Sunset Speeder, not too impressive.

    More impressed with the alternate car build for #31008 Thunder Wings.

    @blogzilly  Most of my Speed Champions do not have stickers applied.  I applied stickers to the first one I bought and keep thinking I should really go buy a second one.
  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,938
    @gelkster I prefer the sunset speeder in Classic Space livery

    10/10 would drive a lifesize version.

    Finally finished the Catwoman mosaic after having to wait for an order of 450 black bricks:


    Was it cheaper to do all 1x1s?

    I did the same to my first one. Then I tore them all off and figured I would keep an eye out for it and look for a deal. I'm trying to learn how to make a sort of good interior base for an 8-wide car and then I want to start converting a bunch of them over to that. I like two seater automobiles.

    Finally managed to get around to building my 75827-1 Ghostbusters Firehouse HQ which unexpectedly took me nearly 2 days to complete. It's quite a build but the finished product is awesome (just wish it was a little more sturdy when fitted together but it's holding nicely for now).

    I remember that set when I was a kid! still have it too, no box though. got tired of storing them all once kids came around.

    I'm pretty sure it would be much cheaper to use bigger parts, but I'm trying to be a bit of a "pixel art purist" and only use 1x1s.

    It's also a lot more work this way... :O

    The price isn't a huge problem because I don't keep them built. I take them apart to build others. Otherwise I'd have the house full of these things.

    Has anyone tried making up a mosaic using different heights of plates to give a picture depth?
    (1 plate for black, 2 plates for dark grey, 3 plates for light grey & 4 plates for white) 
    I have thought about having a go at this (in grey scale for a start) just to see what it turns out like and wondered if anyone else had tried it?

    @Legoboy wish you a speedy recovery.

    On another note I am still working feverishly to build used sets  - I want to see whats missing pieces and whats complete - looking to sell/pare down my collection and this is step 1 of that.

    Put together #75082 when I got home from school today, nice build. One subtle touch that I really liked was the use of rail pieces along the hinges for the wings to make sure they all go to the same position without having to fiddle with them.

    #75082 is the only one I wasn't able to pick during Walmart's sale a few months back, glad to hear it's a good build.

    @Legoboy Now THAT is a beautiful ride...I have only built one Technic set. Keep meaning to pick up some more. Every time I see pics like this I take a few steps closer to doing it.

    Just finished Bricklinking #6973 Deep Freeze Defender for <$20. Impressive ship! Good sized & modular.

    Next I'm going to check my collection to see if I can make #70707 CLS-89 Eradicator Mech.

    I have been dabbling with some photography in my pre-move days. Not a ton of actual building. Considering picking up a new camera. Definitely looking for some new lights and a backdrop idea when I set up in the new house.

    Finally started laying out Brickadelphia on Wednesday night when my Bricks and Pieces order for many, many 6x6 DBG tiles for roads came. An 8'x12' layout is actually more space-consuming than I thought given the constraints of my basement. Two skyscrapers done, a third well on the way, and three more started/mapped out. Once I eventually make a light-box I'll take pictures. Sooner or later I'll get to my CLAAS Tractor, 911 GT3, Ferris Wheel, Brick Bank, and Beetle that I have queued up built.

    Planning to commenced building on my double-facade Palace Cinema - featuring a 3-D portal monster.

    (And I'm definitely going to MOD a Sanctum Sanctorum into the top level of the Pet Shop.)

    Is that because she doesn't know the price of them?

    325 km/h isn't speeding in Germany, which is, after all, the home of Porsche.

    More of an issue is the fact that the real car won't actually go quite that fast!

    Just build this set: Battle Droid Troop Transport
    #75086
    It was actually quite an intricate build, and took me longer than expected. And I am already such a slow builder.
    Anyway it was fun, and I think it is a really cool looking speeder, even though in the movie there are a lot more of these droids (a 112 to be exact) all folded up in sort of a fetus position stacked in multiple layered racks before being deployed, instead of the upright standing position in which these (mere) twelve infantry droids are carried around. Unfortunately Lego did not design these little droids in such a way that folding them up similar to the film is possible. It would have been nice if the droids would have independent movable legs. Still the design of this vehicle is nice, and instantly recognizable IMO. I have grown quite fond of these comical Lego battle droids, despite their shortcomings, such as not being able to turn their heads sideways, and the leg piece I already mentioned before.

    ps.
    This set does not include any stickes.....    Yeaaahhh!

    More proof I occasionally build stuff.


    And my inspiration for a 'trunk or treat' portal beast.  (This is a strange event where kids do Halloween Trick-or-Treating out of the boots of cars.  Obligatory decorating must occur.)

    Nah! I just want to know what car Porsche let TLG's designers play with if they were going that fast. They obviously just forgot which was which!

    Mind you, it's also a poignant reminder of why you shouldn't lane-hog in Germany and why you should double-check that blur in the mirror before pulling out.

    I broke my Golden Lego rule today - no non OT SW sets. I suppose on a timeline though, Rogue One is as close to OT as you'll get.

    Halfway through Krannic's shuttle (bags 1 - 4 done) and is looking pretty big, with a canny selection of minifigs. The 1 x 2 stud gap on the top surface of the big wing built looks odd - i'll have to look at the source material to determine why the gap is there if something in a later bag doesn't fill it.

    Don't know why I jumped in and cracked this set open when my MOC Batcave/Wayne Manor is still begging for my attention.
