Still, one could argue this was a triumph.
hate the pun.
and the cake is a lie.
The detailing and general finish of the escape pod is made up of 4 reasonably sized stickers that should all line up.
My eyes are not what they used to be but I don't usually have to much of a problem fitting stickers but getting all 4 to line up round the entire build are a huge pain in the butt. Would personally have preferred brick built greebling on the sides.
in that pet shop has a part that should be a fence that is 4 studs long with 1 stud at each end, but in the set you get a fence that has 4 studs on top.
i have seen other sets ware in the book it said you should get a part with a hole. but the set for real has a normal stud, and the other way around. when it dose not prevent you from building the model this can happen.
and explain what happened, Lego Should send you the right part.
Note it is not going to be fast, i had a replacement part take weeks.
I requested a replacement through their website right away. Thanks anyway.
I just wonder how common it is to have missing parts. First time it happen to me.
(miss print on a homer head, and a corner brick Tan. (also known as sand yellow.) that had what looked like earth blue flakes mixed in to the brick.)
the homer head was a little harder to get, but only by 2 minutes of chat on a phone.
i had to prove i own the set. with a unique code that each set has.
the brick was easy, as i had got the set right from [email protected]
i always feel that a phone call is better when it comes to getting replacement parts.
One topic of what I am building, I working on both the Parisian Restaurant as well as the Detective's Office (working on one in the bedroom and the other in the dining room :) ). After these are done I'll start on the Brick Bank.
Sometimes building is tedious. Maybe I prefer playing with or displaying the finished model. Perhaps I'm not used to sets with a few hundred pieces.
Built bag 3 of that last night. Did one of the stickers from bag 4 and put the wheels in the tires. Would've done more if I hadn't been busy with BrickLink.
Finished it this evening. Still like it overall, but some of the roof pieces aren't supported enough.
After that I added a plate's width to the side panels of the body and built out the detail to either side of the canopy, to make it look wider and flatter. And most importantly, if there is even a one percent chance it'll need subwoofers, we have to take it as an absolute certainty:
Since minidolls can't sit down, LEGO includes furniture with tiles, but the minis don't stay put on that either. So I'm going to Bricklink the furniture parts. One of my few gripes with sets I usually like.
It's almost, if not more fun, watching a family member enjoy the Lego building experience as it is building it myself :)
I think after that I might disassemble the #10179 Falcon and surprise him by having him rebuild it. I'm sure he will do a better job at it than I did :)
