I was on a very ambitious project.
Full review coming in a few days to a week.
Not sure at the moment but tentatively Mission San Juan Bautista is in the lead.
Just finished the lego ideas minecraft village set,it was a nice and fun build consisting of 4 smaller stages. End result looks great (I am a sucker for tiles) but probably wont spend more money on minecraft sets. There are sets I like better.
Next to build will be the palace cinema,did order it this weekend and hope to get it this week.
#31038 Changing Seasons
Waiting for delivery of TH and FB that I splashed out on on eBay last weekend.
I plan on doing the actual thing, but I may be biting more than I can chew!
This is being done LDD-free!
we stood back and admired it whilst my wife questioned if 'that's it?' She felt the £100 wasn't value for money. We think it was worth every penny.
one piece missing tho (grey pillar) which was a bit frustrating although not bad for a used set.
This mission is actually starting to fall down/over. The church & park just had a meeting on it last week with structural engineers to go over what needs to be done to keep it upright....should I have suggested they bring in some lego designers to help out? ;)
Now, back to my coastal themed Boardwalk, Coast Guard, and Beach layout.
That's the rest of my day planned. I hope the 42030 is going to be a good display model like the Unimog.
I have a field trip there in a few weeks.
Will have to check it out.
Not surprised though, as the fault line literally runs in its backyard.
I'll try to update this site with my mission though I won't have time until summer because of report cards!
I'm extremely pleased with how the printing has turned out. :)
You can see the full size pics on my flickr account here.
Anyone else got this set too?
Love the minifigs, wish they had included a second sandtrooper though. Luke's speeder looks good, but it seems way too big somehow in relation to the minifigs. It has the proportions of a 1970s Lincoln Continental instead of a compact roadster.
I love the colours, I don't believe I have any other bricks in this orange-brown nougat.
The cantina was fun to build but is so small. The set does not come with a barman either. Nor does the Dewback have any articulation points except for its jaw.
If the set wasn't as expensive as it is, I would love to buy a second one so I can MOC a bigger cantina.
Ideally, if I let my imagination run wild, TLG should release another add on Cantina set, with more different unique minifigs from that same Cantina scene from ep. IV.
I've also realised it's about the only theme where there aren't any cops or robbers. NOT complaining, but "Deep Sea Diving Police" trying to arrest sharks could have been fun ;-)
I agree the ground level is a nightmare, the legs collapse but once you get past that it is quite a sturdy and impressive model.
