    Building the MMV with a 6, 4 and 2-year old. No, I don't know what I was thinking, either. They've already gone off the page and started building their own tree, much taller and equipped with a bucket lookout for invaders.

    Started preliminary parts pulling for #4194 Whitecap Bay. Mulled over buying a BL $40 (no minifigs) too long- next day it was gone, then the NEXT least costly one went.

    Currently the least expensive USA available is over $60 so I decided w/ Monster Fighters recently added to my collection I may have a good chance building it.

    This afternoon I built #8677 Ultimate build Mater which I picked up on eBay last week. I think I'll scoot up into the loft tomorrow and dig out the rest of my Cars Sets.

    Built #30242, #9679 and #75005 over the weekend. Got the Death Star in the same order. That's still waiting to be constructed.

    Using Digital Designer to plan a new Heroica MOC. Turning my spare #3858 Waldurk Forest into a Greek-inspired area, complete with #71000-2 Cyclops boss! Also using the skeletons from #3856 a la Jason and the Argonauts.

    I am working on a TMNT MOC for the contest over at FBTB. I am pretty happy with how it is going so far.

    Went old school last night and dug out #8860 the old technic car chassis from the early 80's. Brought back many memories of staring at the lego catalogues and wondering if I would ever get one for Christmas/birthday. I can even remember that it was £24.99 in Argos (wish the flagship sets were still that price).
    It's also been a while since I built a big old set and as people have mentioned on other threads you actually have to look at and concentrate on the instructions as they aren't one piece per page as they seem to be these days, lots of aligning gears and stuff so that it actually functions properly.
    Didn't quite finish it last night but hopefully will tonight. Looks just as good as it did 33 years ago.

    earlier today I was building this in the Manchester LEGO store:

    Which split down into this:

    image

    Which is approx 460 pieces.

    As you may gather from the huge amount of 2x4 pieces, the selection was really pretty bad - worse even than 6 weeks ago, when I did a similar thing with my first box.

    We are rebuilding Yoda #7194 because there were loose pieces on the head when we got it already built. Sadly we found an error in our own building which can only be corrected by taking apart all except the first 7 or so rows!
  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,240
    Just dumped out the box to the UCS B-wing. Taking a break from working on my mountain/train tunnel for my train layout and trying hard to avoid more sorting.

    Just finished ordering parts for my version of Tony Sava's 4-6-0 steam engine from Pick A Brick. Now I just need to order from five BrickLink sellers and four medium-size flanged drivers from Big Ben Bricks. Here is what it will (sort-of) look like when done.

    I've been working on some mini modular MOCs in LDD. I don't have any screenshots at the moment, but if anyone has any useful advice and tips, I'm all ears!

    Started building City Garage to go with the Airport my boys will be getting for their birthday in 2 weeks...until the same boys became intolerably naughty in a matter of minutes, then I dismantled it & back in the baggie it went.

    Just built a mega version of #40052 by combining two sets and adding a few brown pieces to stabilize the tree branches.

    Built the first part of #10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van tonight. Really enjoyable, but the lack of numbers on the bags has been a bit of a pain.

    And having watched the nipper build #7964 Republic Frigate earlier today, it's been a really good building day in the Briking household.

    Just finished building #7066 and i am super impressed as are my 2 boys.

    Ok, so I finished my #10220. I have read others remarks that the roof is flimsy. They were not joking! Lazy workmanship by the designer.

    And for the first time ever I had 3 missing pieces. Luckily I could find 2 replacements in the spares, but the 3rd one is now a gap stopping me from completeing the roof.

    I was missing 2x Element ID: 366021... instead they gave me 2x spare of Element ID: 235721. And the one I can't find a spare for yet is Element ID 4515368. Just put a missing parts request in.

    And I wasn't keen on stickers. An iconic model like this deserves printed pieces.

    Sorry for the negativity - I've now got that off my chest.

    WOW!!! What a good looking model! So far since coming out of my dark ages last autumn I've concentrated on Modulars. But this is beautiful. As a child of the 60's I remember the T1 live. Non-Lego fans will not ralise it is Lego is until they start studying it in detail. If this model doesn't bring people out of their dark ages, nothing ever will!

    @Briking it is a funky set to build and I love all the interior detail. Not sure on the roof though myself but it was a fun build. I agree that if people want to build something a little different then this set is awesome.

    When we built my gf version she had 2 pieces missing from the front of the van which was disappointing. Luckily we could get replacement red parts off the Lego site for them. They arrived about a week later and we slotted them into place to complete the set.

    She now wants to make the VW beetle only on red and white like the Camper Van and not the two shades of blue.

    PS. I just completed book 1 of The Pet Shop #10218

    Not actually building anything at the moment, but I did order today about a third of the bricks I need for bricklinking #10185 Green Grocer. Ironically, I ordered them from Lego's Bricks & Pieces site, as the pieces were cheaper on there than on Bricklink.

    I found a #5976 ...it still had the box. I love the old boxes where you could open the flap and see what was in the box. It all looked there. I paid $20 for it. I started building it as soon as I got home...and score...it was all there...what a cool set. It even came with the old books that showed all the sets...year 1999,,,,what a banner year for LEGO. On a sidebar.... I think LEGO could stop 99% of the problem with people popping the seals on sets and returning them if they would just go back to the flip open boxes ....sorry for that rant...

    (re)Building #8880, wonderful Technic set from the mid 90ies, needed that after the #42000 let down.

    Just capped of my tour of Iron Man 3 sets with the Malibu Mansion Attack #76007. I was not impressed.
  • ColoradoBricksColoradoBricks Denver, CO, USAMember Posts: 1,640
    was about to start #10232, but #8880 was so enjoyable that I am going with another older Technic set #8462 (and I have all my light gray containers out ;-) )

    Had a sick day home from work Yesterday and built Grand Emporium in about 5 hours straight. Top two floors were quite repetitive, but really enjoyed the build. And as a plus, I feel much better now.

  • Dread_PirateDread_Pirate Member Posts: 184
    Working on restoring an old Knight's Castle set. I got most of it already but I need a bunch of 1x2 grey bricks and some pretty red ones too. throw in a couple of black inverted slopes and I'm good to go. Or I could just find some one selling a full set at a decient price and just get that too!

  • GeddesGeddes Member Posts: 574
    Just finished #7787, #7783 is next! Then I have the choice of #7784, #76000 or #76008 :)
  • BrikingBriking Dorset, UKMember Posts: 745
    I've started my un-haunting of #10228, but until my PAB order arrives, it's in limbo.

    In the meantime I've just opened one of the two #10214 I ordered from Amazon.it... The number of pieces in un-numbered bags look kind of daunting!
  • BrikingBriking Dorset, UKMember Posts: 745
    Phew. Book 1 done.

    I just pushed the button and later this month I am going to have a brand new Medieval Market Village and a Mill Raid on my door step. cant wait!

    I've been working my way through the Modular series. Building them in order. I finished #10197 this weekend. Now I have started #10211. My desk at work has #10182, #10190, and #10185 sitting on it right now, along with my entire (incomplete) collection of CMFs. Co-workers and clients love stopping by!

    i finished the brownstone in the Pet Shop set. Now sorting pieces for #3724 Dragon for my son's birthday and over 3000 pieces for an elemntary school modular.

    I was going to bring my mini modulars to work but my office is essentially a mostly window/glass hallway so sunlight is everywhere. I'd hate to start those chemical reactions and turn everything yellow.
  • Dread_PirateDread_Pirate Member Posts: 184
    Well I got the MMV and MVR sets and spent about 8 hours between the 2 sets building. Great builds and there is alot of potential for play and display. My kids both want to get their hands on them.

  • AvengerDrAvengerDr Member Posts: 453
    After one year and probably more, I have finally finished building a 99.95% accurate bricklinked #10179! I spent the last hour trying to attach one of the last plate panel.. Everytime I was close to attaching it something else broke. One "minifig utensil binocular town" fell into the internal structure and had to be replaced... You will be remembered! I will attach the sticker tomorrow and put some pictures :)

    In truth, for all the hype around it I expected it to be more stable. Some parts of the upper .... fuselage (?) are just laid on top of the internal structure.

    what do I do now?! :D
