Firts bag contains both Capt.Rex and the most wicked minifig in this set, one of the Imperial Inquisitors: the Fifth Brother. What a splendid looking minifig!
The only problem now is that I've realised that, although I've got goods covered, I have nothing to transport my population around, so I'm going to have to get a #60051 High-Speed Passenger Train and #60050 Train Station at some point.
Welcome to the REAL Dark Side!
Horizon Express and the Maersk are some of my favorite Lego set though and I also recommend them.
I'm a romantic steam fan and see diesels / electrics as purely utilitarian machines with no beauty, but that's just me... ;-)
And having said all that, my first LEGO train is a #60052...
I'm happy with the result for what it is, but I'm thinking I'll break it up and take a second shot. I got through about 80% of it using only the mid-scale Falcon's parts, but at the end I decided wotthehell archy and opened up a storage box to finish it off without leaving obvious weird bits where I hadn't been able to figure out a solution within what I had to work with (it looks like pants from the back and below as it is). Given that, I'm feeling like round two, using whatever I can find from the start, may prove more satisfying; I'd really like to get the proper recessed techy cutouts in the forward hull, and since I'm contemplating dismantling my older full-size Falcon (blast-shield Luke and Obi-Wan can move into the TFA one, it'll kind of represent both of them, like #10188 does both Death Stars) that'll free up some large radiator discs, or whatever those are, which I think'll look a whole lot better than the teeny mid-scale ones. To be continued, if I come up with anything worthwhile...
(This coming from someone that help build an early '50's era scale O gauge train table so there could be steam and first generation diesel. Someone's father would get super-annoyed when Crockett and Tubbs's sweet Miami Vice ride would be parked at the local Gulf Station...)
This is as tall as it gets with 2 sets.
Unfortunately, the sticker sheet had just been put loose into the box, even though the instruction manual was nicely packaged in a plastic bag and with a cardboard insert. Needless to say, it was crumpled.
Why, oh why, do they not put the sticker sheet in the bag as well? This isn't the first set that I've had in this way, but the stickers have been okay, although the one in #9473 The Mines of Moria was borderline.
Thankfully, I had already ordered a backup sheet from BL, so I had a set to apply, and I also contacted TLG CS, who are sending a replacement.
Now then... Where's my gluwein? :-)
What happened to Shaggy? Is this a Halloween-themed PSA against drunk motorcycle driving? Scooby's jaunty steps suggest he isn't all that concerned.
I've had the Grand Carousal it it looks great but does not run very well. It will work it'self apart in pretty short order.
mmmmm....Gluwein.....enjoyed at the Criskindl Market in Nurenburg.
I'm using the plans for the mechanism and basic structure to build one with Friends horses this week, none of the panels on the side with stuff attached by one stud and I have an idea to stop the 1x1 rounds falling underneath. If it fails miserably I'll be rebuilding my winter market carousel at breakneck speed.
Probably will need 2 to 3 sets to make into a decent version.
(Sorry, I always find the background stuff endlessly fascinating when people post pics.)
As to what it is specifically, haven't got a clue, but she doesn't ask when I buy boxes of plastic bricks, I don't ask when these little trinkets turn up. :-)
I thought it was a squirrel. Nonetheless, pardon my preoccupation - everyone else can move along.
I built this last night and this morning, fanTAStic little build - four pieces I'd never encountered before - and the look is very aesthetically pleasing (and reminiscent of Chip'n'Dale's Rescue Rangers flying thingy XD). Hadn't intended on even building the little hover-dilly, but I did out of just wanting the build to last a bit longer, and I love it! I don't have too much Ninjago, but the few I've selected I really enjoy... plus it helps that there's a Pirates cross-theme. :D
Part ISD, part Klingon battle cruiser. We were both pretty pleased with the result!
@Thoughtsonblocks I like how your town looks, incorporating the 'lesser' Creator sets in your town.
Question for those of you with towns...Where do you get the 2x2 'concrete slabs' for your sidewalks?
