The set was nearly complete (only missing the crater plate and a walkie-talkie), in its original (damaged) box, with instructions and a 1980 catalog.
Almost all of the parts were in great shape (clean edges, few scratches, minimal discoloration, nice prints, almost full gold), though all of the Classic Space 1x2 bricks and "LL928" bricks were darker than most of the normal blue pieces and some of the grey pieces (such as the 4x4 plates on the wingtips) also slightly stick out as discolored. And, then there's the landing pad baseplate, which I'm in the processing of trying to find a proper less-discolored replacement.
Though, I did replace a few parts due to significant discoloration (most notably, the two 1x8 plates on top of the cockpit area), and I also replaced one of the 1x6 trans-yellow bricks due to it having micro-fractures.
I could get back to my planned expanded Batcave/Wayne Manor which has been neglected and tidied away in a few drawers.
Bank holiday drinking is off the table - I got wrecked at a wedding on Saturday, and my insides still haven't forgiven me.
I didn't make an arse of myself or throw up (i'm a very composed drunk) - but 24-48 hours after a 15 pint session my stomach always makes me wish I had thrown it up.
I made a start on the proper building work and not long after my driver batteries have died...on charge now and i'm watching TFA.
(Not really...but it does happen accidentally a lot. Perhaps it's my subconscious speaking...)
(Although, the build on the Cadillac is very good.)
Not sure what the toolbox is for. Didn't see the new movie, so that will remain a mystery until GB is on Netflix.
From Wikipedia: A toolbox (also called toolkit, tool chest or workbox) is a box to organize, carry, and protect the owner's tools. :-)
I hope you like the movie too when you get a chance to watch it.
(My apologies for TigerMothing you...)
anyways I saw a couple bags of old colourful Lego that I was definitely not going to be using so I filled the box up with it all and I'm actually quite fond of the end result. I'll need to hang it up somewhere...
Spent 2 full days (~12 hrs) building the UCS Imperial Shuttle for the 2nd time (1st time was back in 2012 when it was still current). Still blown away by how great and fun the build is. And still feel this is one of the most epic & beautiful sets ever made by Lego. So imposing and awe striking with its immense size, pictures can't do it justice.
Dragon first methinks.
I think the head is fantastic from both a construction and an 'expressive' point of view.
'Did you just call me Bob?'
'You did didn't you, you just called me Bob?'
'Do I look like a fr!gg!n Bob to you now little man?'
In set terms, I think I've eaten the main course and left the starters in the box, perhaps I'll get them done tomorrow. Might actually have to do some reading and find out what this Ninjango stuff is all about too...although I have a not so sneaky suspicion that there aren't many Bobs in it :-)
PS - No offence to Bob, Bobs, here, real or otherwise intended!
It also stands quite tall and looks very muscular, thanks to the two bigfig Giant No. 1 Left / Right Arms, which form the base of the wings.
"The Green NRG Dragon measures over 5” (15cm) high, 14” (37cm) long and 8” (21cm) wide with folded wings, and 22” (57cm) wide with unfolded wings."
I'm going to have to rebuild all my other Ninjago dragons, to line them all up for a photoshoot... :-)
I completed the palace cinema recently and it is impressively big (I guess you all know how big it is). the problem is the parisian restaurant looks small next to it. actually my only model which may not look small by comparison is vladek's dark fortress...
Yes, #10232 Palace Cinema is large, but it is dwarfed in turn by #10247 Ferris Wheel etc. etc. etc. ;-)
it's fab set.
#70599 Cole's Dragon
#70602 Jay's Elemental Dragon
#70748 Titanium Dragon
#30294 The Cowler Dragon (I think that's it)
The good lady wife has been hinting that we swap our current study and spare bedrooms over, so I am giving serious thought to the idea on the basis that it will be easier to get big enough shelves to fit all the dragons on as part of a refit rather than trying to cram them into the existing arrangement.
there is one dragon i would love to have. if i can find it for a ok price.
and that is #70725
Some of those transparent parts that glow in the light are also a nice touch.
