I have now put together #40154 Iconic Pencil Pot in the (vain?) hope that going forward when any of these lost pens reappears, they get placed in #40154 so that whenever I need a pen, I might actually have access to one...
....teamed it with homemade Chinese for tea and washed down with a bottle of Tsingtao!
Some more stuff from my building spree. Trying not to choke everybody with photos. See? I can be learned stuff! Bought this set recently from @SprinkleOtter If I had any kind of building area/sorted bricks I might attempt some add/ons, but that will have to wait. The interiors are just tight. Would be nice to tweak this into more of a building building though. I like the off center lack of symmetry.
Police version of the green car in SDCC2015-3(this one I started but waiting on the remaining parts)
The bad guy's van from 60008 in green & black
Drakonas from Lego City Undercover in black
The vintage looking roadster from 7326
The vintage jeep from 7622
#4 will be build a bit differently, as I want to use some parts I have already for the front. All in all, it's gonna be fun building these.
I didn't expect the #42048 go-kart to have a gearbox, it's a nice touch :)
Here are a few pieces that a monkey could make. So one did! :) I'm surprised how many bricks go into the #21301 Birds IDEAS Set. I still have Bird 3 left to assemble. I do this a lot. I have ADD and I bag the bags separately (often according to instructions) so sometimes I'll build one part of something and won't finish it until much later. When medication wears off will affect that equation a lot.
I can explain that much better in photos some other time (of course I have some).
Scratch the getting part.
That is a sweet set but I can't justify buying it. But if I can find some cheap instructions I'm all into bricklinking it. I haven't checked to see if the book has an Oriole, but if not I'm considering MOCing one.
Do not care much for the second "modern" engine on the right; might convert it into another passenger cart.
That was definitely the most time a single set has ever taken for me to complete. One thing that didn't help the process was when I realized I had a random brick in my leftover pile which I knew wasn't an extra. After doing some searching, I realized that I had skipped a single brick in the row directly above the second row of statues. Since I had already gone three rows higher, it was a pain getting it in, but I managed.
Great looking set! I don't think I will be breaking this one down for awhile.
Completed step one and discovered an extra bag of parts. -Yay!
Started step 2 and was short one bag of parts. - Boo!
Called Lego customer service and they will send missing parts - Yay!
In 7-10 days! - Boo!
Said they would include a Batman poly for my trouble - Yay!
"Yay's" outweigh the "Boo's" 4 to 2.
I´m having some good days!
Can't find the shot of the alien crap from bag 1. Of course I built them days apart. DOH! Here's the #70709 Galactic Titan...
But, and there's always a nice BUTT, I was thinking. If I could get myself just a little more organized, this would be a great excuse to start to segue into a MOC attempt. I've been studying a lotta spaceships lately. Collecting images via Pinterest and Flickr, seeing how people do it. Maybe I should make a Swarm Interceptor Mark II or something. If I could give it some of the same play features as the set, mainly the conversion capabilities, same color scheme, same general shapes, might be a good learnin' tool for me.
