    I got Dimensions so I built the portal but have not yet played the game.  I may do that with my son later today.  I did visit amazon.com already and got myself the portal and dr who expansions.

    I also got the LEGO mug.  I am sure I was not the first person with the idea, but back when Cuusoo first launched, I scaled up an image of a LEGO mug and superimposed it on a picture of myself so it looked like I was holding it.  I then submitted the picture along with the idea of making a life-size mug but it was rejected because it was not a LEGO build.  Im happy they finally made one but I just wish it were a little bigger.

    I got a really cool LEGO present from the @TheOneVeyronian. Pictures tomorrow.

    Also my not so secret Santa gift was opened but not built (the wrapping of presents somehow wrapped around today, lol) and I am chuffed with it too :o)

    For now though, it's a hot cup of tea and something fine to go with it and Dr Who recorded earlier this evening. 

    Hope everybody had a really lovely day today, I know I did. :o) Merry Christmas bricksetters!

    Finally made it to The Art of The Brick show here in Zürich since September.
    Wonderful to finally see many of Nathan Sawaya's sculptures in the buff, so to speak, rather than just on the computer screen.
    Took along my dad (77) and mom (74) as a christmas gift, my mom thouroghly enjoyed it, my dad rather non-plussed, but you can't win them all.
    If you haven't been to one of his exhibits, can really recommend it!

    For Christmas, I received:
    • The Hulk Buster Smash
    • The Tumbler
    • 2015 Christmas Tree (GWP)
    As a collector who displays LEGO sets, I've put together a fantastic display that I'd like to share. Is there a sub-forum/topic to do so in?

    Merry Christmas All :-)

    Today I don't expect any LEGO-related news regarding my collection, but my daughter might well be getting a few presents originating from Billund (and want some help building) ;-)
    Well over the last two days my 5 year-old has built Elsa's Sparkling Ice Palace and the Friends Sunshine Harvest. It's lovely to see her concentrate for so long then play for hours afterwards at the dining table :-)

    Amazing to think LEGO is good for kids too ;-)

    A couple days ago, I sent two boxed-up sets, one box each of Creator and Star Wars, to my 9-year-old nephew. I bet he's going to enjoy his sets as much as I do. :)

    So, I bagged up my xmas sets and just finished the Battle for Ninjago City and am currently starting bag 3 of the airjitsu temple.

    Due to limited space the option was either Ninjago or Endor - looks like Endor will have to wait a couple of months.

    Don't worry, they'll still make a target-able exhaust port that can destroy the entire structure with a single missile.

    I don't know what you're implying. You can't not vent the exhaust of an engine that size!  And it doesn't make good economic sense on a multibillion GCS not-moon to put a grate over it to stop people shooting/flying in. Next you're going to be asking for railings on the walkways!

    Just finished 75094 - Imperial Shuttle Tydirium, not a christmas pressie, but at £10 off at Argos in the UK currently thought might as well!

    http://brickset.com/sets/75094-1/Imperial-Shuttle-Tydirium

    Nice model of the Imperial Shuttle, 5 minifigs, and looks impressive next to the other OT models. Need to work on a stand now, as looks best with its wings in the flight (down) position!

    Now I want the UCS Imperial Shuttle!!

    Finally finished with the build :)
    Thought 2 times a part was missing (first time a entire #2 bag managed to hide between #3-s) but luckily it was just the weird ability of lego parts of hiding out of sight even when you keep em jailed inside a box. Got troubles now with shelf space since theres no suitable one free atm.
    @OrmskirkBricks thanks god i was able to snag that one before EOL but due to unnumbered bags its a PITA for finding the parts

    Just finished the Ewok Village, it's even better than I thought.  I will enjoy to build and I'm really happy with the end result, now have to break something else down to make room on the shelf.

       my 6 year old is also really getting the hang of it he went to play at his grandparents this afternoon, but still managed to finish three sets today, rey's speeder, Farrand christal hollow and advanced tie fighter! 

     we've been listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in the meantime so it's been a very nice atmosphere here...

    Just finished building #76049 Avenjet Space Mission. Kind of bummed out that Thanos ended up kind of goofy looking. On a good note the inclusion of Hyperion is fantastic. If you have never read the original 12 part series Squadron Supreme I highly suggest it.

    @snowhitie my boy just finished the ewok village this morning, really nice looking set although some of the barriers look a little wrong so may need to check those.

    Still sorting my spare bricks and entering them into a database. I'm up 10,000, I think I am halfway done. Never thought I would make it this far.

    @cheshirecat ;    if you mean the railings, made by the brown tubes,  I've been trying to get that right as well. Even with kind of OCD checking it seems very very difficult to get it totally the right way and  symmetrical.  maybe it just needs a bit of bending and will naturally get better after a while...

    My fingers are sore from unbuilding all the Winter Village.  Yes, I used two orange separators.  I gave up on taking the "lights" out of the "holders".  
  • EluneElune QuébecMember Posts: 99
    I've watched the two first episodes of Nexo Knights today. I didn't buy it as much as I did Ninjago, but it has some potential. And some of the minifigs are really nice. I guess it's not that bad that there won't be a "real" Castle theme wave in 2016... Plus, it gives me time to hoard Elves sets, haha.

    @snowhitie The Ewok Village is a set I debated on just prior to its disappearance off of the retail shelves.  I have yet to buy a Star Wars themed set as I was never a fan however I am sure I would love some of the builds.  Perhaps it will reappear once again as it is still listed.

    found another few contaminations hidden between my small plates, used em as target practice for my bin. And changing the bottom of #10188 without disassembling or turning upside down is annoying as hell. Had to make some temporary support structures and mid-change one decided to separate in the middle at a connection

    Hey @Speedman29 , I'm also currently building the DO modular! I just finished the #3 bags:
    Thats what mine currently looks like. I can't be bothered with speed building like some people do. I spent a lot of money I'm taking my time! Its taken me several days doing an hour or so a day. I'm going to crack open bag 4s later and make a start.

    Adeel Zubair - Best Of 2015

    Thank you guys for another outstanding year on Flickr.

    On 31st December 2014 I had 140 followers, and now I have 587 followers which is over four times the amount I had 12 months ago! Thank you guys for those views, likes and comments and those who shared my work.

    My main goal for 2016 is to purchase less LEGO sets and spend more on parts and elements for MOC's. As for photography it will continue but there will be less of it.

    I also hope to get closer to the 10,000 supporters goal for my 'Clockwork Robot' project on LEGO Ideas, at least 5,000 before it expires.


    Happy New Year!

    same here, feels like better value for money if the build takes several days. also it's sometimes easier on the fingers than speed building.
