It's not my first train MOC (you can see that in the background), but it's the first substantial one I've done.
There's pictures earlier in this thread of the progress of it, but I've just finished changing the hotch-potch of colours to black. The front bogie is attached in a similar fashion to the Constitution, but the extra axle at the back required a different arrangement for the main wheels. It goes around curves pretty well, although it's a bit tight through switches.
The Tender is an almost exact copy of the one I built for my Constitution. It fits all the PF gubbins in it, and I like the design, so saw no reason to change it. :)
It includes some pics of the Scorm minifig for those who do that 'collecting one of each tribe' with Chima figs ;-)
Glad to hear you're a fan of Judy - she had one of the richest and most emotive voices I've ever heard. I'm looking forward to sitting down this Christmas to watch both "Meet Me in St Louis" AND "The Wizard of Oz", since my Christmas Radio Times tells me they're both on this year! :-)
Just finished building the Galactic Titan #70709 and Crater Creeper #70706 . The Galactic Titan is really a fantastic set, it looks great, ploughs with its tracks nicely across the pillows and cushioning of the couch, and I believe has lots of potential for MOCing too. The chassis of the planetary defender, is perfect for building an other body configuration on to with ample room for lots of minifigs.
Currently I am building the Hive Crawler set #70708 .
I got sidetracked with the contents of bag one though, after I finished building Billy Starbeam's speeder, I thought: 'this is really a cool nice looking little vehicle, but what can I do to customize and change it'. I don't care for the split function, so instead of moving on with the contents of the rest (the bulk) of the set, I have been just toying around with the bricks from bag one for now, and the left over bricks from the the two previously build sets, changing numerous little details, gradually rebuilding the speeder to my own liking.
There's no pics yet, as I need yet another few BL orders to get bricks in the correct colours (it's currently a bit of a hotch-potch of colours). I'm torn, however, between doing the top half in dark red or black (as shown in the two photos below). What do people think?
I might end up just getting enough bricks to do one of each...
I also just built the City Fuel Truck 60016, but the box was a two pieces short of completion, needless to say I"m missing a wheel and side mirror.
I don't understand all of the recent sacrilegious talk that has risen in this forum. It has me a little concerned. Possibly confusion in the understanding of what the "brick" in "Brickset" means.
Anyway. Recently built the Galaxy Squad Bug Obliterator. Fantastic set, and I'd recommend it to any one who can get it for a little bit on sale.

Also got myself a Christmas gift in the form of a Cloud City. Surely I won't get a duplicate gift this year.
I am glad I finished this set before opening another. This thing is a beast, 5 functions controlled by one motor, I feel like a kid playing with it. Haven't figured out how to get the side supports to lower properly, but I'll get there.....eventually.
Did it take anyone else half an hour just to apply the stickers too? :-P
Check out some more shots of Boga (plus a few movie stills of the chase I did using the MOC Boga and #75040.) in my Flickr photostream: http://www.flickr.com/photos/theoneveyronian/sets/72157639013708353/
Lego #31019 Forest Animals
Great little set.
Cuckoo clock set from Lego Movie is also lovely. A great holiday time for building those sets sitting in boxes on the floor…some for a year. Palace Cinema is also in the line.
The former is an excellent futuristic looking vehicle and has some nice play features.
The latter is absolutely adorable in truck mode. The "machine" is not unlike many action theme sets, and there for looks excellent as well. It's almost worth having two of #70804 just to display both models.
I also recently purchased #70803 and found it two be a very eye popping build. Unikitty is kawaii (cute in Japanese, because anime kitty), and as the cheapest way at the moment to get Wildstyle without the hood, it's more than worth the money. It has a very random color scheme but looks very nice when complete.
Will do! Bought two of them so I don't have to take apart the first one, which is just too darn cute!
And there are plenty of TLM figures that need to be customized once I finish PR. Love the new parts and mixing in old parts to slightly change figs. Stay warm folks!
That is our future Lego room in the making.
