Or get some dirt on @SirKevbags so he throws the draw in your favour!
(We would like to state that any suggestion that SirKev is corruptible is made purely for the purposes of humour, and there is no suggestion that he is anything other than honourable.
Optimized off a big bunch of cost by replacing light blue gray levers with light old gray ones. (70 of them at 50 cent instead of 7 something euros)
Belated birthday prezzies from Mummy and Daddy :-))
I'm sure I also said my collecting would be limited to the available display space too. Oh dear...
I had read several posts around here of people rotating their displayed sets do to limited space. I will start doing that soon since my cramped/buried display areas are getting ridiculous; for example, I taking a picture I posted yesterday, I noticed that I have #75078 Imperial Troop Transport.
Anyway, the City Demolition sets are going to storage soon to make room for a few (built) Star Wars ships that are currently stacked on a chair in the living room.
gearbox's aside, i think that the build of #42042 did help me get use to modern Technic type build's. even if a £59.99 RRP Technic set would have probably been a better start point.
in a ideal world ware i have £1,000,000,000 to spend on lego :p, i would have started with a £20 set, then a £40 set. then a £60 set, then a £100 set, then a £170 set.
who am a joking here? if i had £1,000,000,000 to spend on lego i would buy at least 1 of every set i could find. Technic, Lego, Trains and maybe Duplo?
day-dreams aside, i going to find it hard to not buy all Technic set's i find in shops from now on. there is one set however that i may just may pay RRP for, and that is #42030 now knowing what i do about Technic, #42030 call's to me. it is saying "YOU NEED TO BUY ME" and it's not whispering it to me. i going to need new ears at this rate.
The same vendor makes similar stands for most Star Wars ships.
Looks great and I'll grab a photo later today and post up.
- #7101 Lightsaber Duel (uhm, I guess I had a set from the prequels all along)
- #7110 Landspeeder (that makes it three Luke's landspeeders in my collection)
- #7127 Imperial AT-ST
- #7128 Speeder Bikes
- #7140 X-Wing Fighter (probably a fleet of x-wings by now)
I really need to go and fish out those set from storage.
I am still missing the instructions for #6208 B-Wing Fighter as I clearly remember my ex-wife complain about it because I had in on display in our room on top of her makeup kit.
Turns out he has:
- #7110 (I have the other newer but not last version)
- #7301 (how the heck did I miss him having a Yoda MF?)
- and most importantly (at least for me) #7143 Jedi Starfighter (I had been wanting to get it, but now I 'have' it!).
I'll end up reassembling the sets (unlike me, he did used to play with them) after I am done with my project (rebuilding some old sets such as a Pizzeria, aerial show, and so on) and hopefully finally start my photography spree.
My modulars and a few larger sets, including the Simpsons house and Kwik-E-Mart stayed built and on display, but I have enough room to rotate various other themes.
I`ve just started to put away some sets to make room for HALLOWEEN! The 1st of September marks the beginning of the building process so we have 2 months to build and enjoy these sets. Building time is limited so I need enough time to get a good halloween display before the 31st October!
Day trip to the Smoke. Quick stop at the Ghandi monument on Russell Square en route to the British Museum.
Hope to call in at the Stratford store later on :-)
Egyptian minifig amulet dating back to the New Kingdom (1550-1070 BCE). Ruddy incredible!
i also need to dust my #70751 it getting quite dusty now.
advice on the best why to dust?
The pink and fluffy... world thing... in the pic above. Did you display that at Bricktastic last year? It looks familiar.
I'm sure it is. It's...
Incredibly hot day in the City. A Greggs pasty and a chilled bottle of the Real Thing provided sustenance and welcome refreshment.
Made it to the Stratford store, but was very good and didn't buy anything :-)
Store was quite full with small people.
LP at HP.
stage 3 was not hard per say, but i did have to make my brain work in ways its not use to.
but it is starting to look like a truck now. even if it looks like one that has had it's outer shell pulled off.

No visit to Londinium would be complete without a gentle amble down The Mall.
finished stage 4 of 6 for #42043 and the air system tubes feel jammed in to the space to me. it all works but the number of tubes to move that air around. just wow.
when i look at the under side of that crane mount i cringe at the mass, that is as bad as the back of any tower PC that been in use for over 3 years.
i noted that black Friday is fast approaching. so, i have decided to TRY! and save up my lego budget, so only offers of 35% or better on set's that i have marked as (I WILL BUY THAT) will i try to buy from now until Black Friday. no idea what i will find to buy that day. but i hope for some good deal's. like a good deal on #60051 i will not say no to :p
