The X-men's blackbird is also ace - really sleek, and yet spacious.
Some stragglers from the above and other recent pics.
Extremely clever...weird that those were all in there...
I just finished building this set an hour ago. Based on one of the pictures on the back of the box, I took it that the back spot is to store Batman's flying thingy; it fits right on.
He took all of his Minecraft sets apart and just declared that we will build a moving fortress using Minecraft pieces (except for the wheels).
It has to have a garden, a mine (to get material for crafting), a house (so his Steve figure can craft, sleep, and train), spring and a pool, among other amenities LoL.
of course this is what LEGO is all about.
Have you tried looking for it?
I love when the kids include me in their builds.
It will be a sad day in y life if they ever stop.
Note No. 1: I highly recommend Googling it first and watching a video or two. See it in action before trying it.
Note No. 2: Because Batman's ears on his cowl are so high, I accidentally lit them a couple of times. Oops. Blew the flame out quickly and did no damage to the head, torso, or legs, but the ears started to melt. I replaced the cowl with an extra, but held on to the melted one. It might actually be good for a battled-damaged Batman in the future. I'd imagine the same wouldn't happen with other minifigs, but with Batman, the ears go up surrounding the ring, so it was difficult to heat the ring without heating them too.
Note No. 3: Once free of the chain, it's basically a standard minifig with one exception - the torso and legs don't come apart. The head and headgear do though. There will be a hole in both, so all the more reason to replace the headgear if you feel the need to because you, you know, lit the darn thing on fire.
I'd imagine those methods would both work too. It didn't take much heat at all before the pin came out. With Batman, I didn't care as much due to having so many extra cowls, but with others I would try either of those methods or heat the chain further away from the minifig. It would take more time that way, but would eventually heat the pin enough to get it out.
Had a little help.....
A few minor odds and ends dug up from the storage bins (and the latest Advent Calendar TIE/I gave its life for this, owing to being within reach and easier than going hunting for parts), but for the most part I stuck to only using parts from the two Milano sets. Not having a lot of extra orange (besides a few extra cheese slopes) was a sticking point, but I'm pretty happy with the coverage, and the new canopy is gorgeous. The stickered pieces for the consoles and tape deck in v2 also made the jump across.
(If anyone's being eagle-eyed, yes, the 2x3 slope closing the gap left by the shorter wing piece with the Milano sticker is the wrong shade of blue. The right one will turn up eventually; at the moment the only ones in line of sight are on Tara's hotrod Y-Wing, and she outranks Star-Lord.)
I apply stickers by hand, clean and dry like usual for handling collectibles. Tweezers seems like too much of a pain in the butt and might crimp the sticker.
I also combined Fun in the Park with other park models. I had MOCed some plants and tables/chairs as a KFOL and added some dog figures recently.
It looks like you included #40221 Fountain - I was tempted to do that but I got only a couple and they were selling so well.
Pic includes CMF S16 Hiker - I since put that with Friends Adventure Camp and put a Babysitter with stroller mom. I put the soccer playing kids with my other sports stuff.
The trumpster fire is like the sun, don't look directly at the press conference. view through protective goggles like sane media outlets.
@Ayliffe Exterminate ... LEPIN!
At least on the keychain I have, legs can be detached form hips and hands will come out of arms. Maybe I'll throw cheap keychains in my next [email protected] order to test out removing the chain. I've ordered a few to have just enough for promos but those are spoken for
That could be a poster for a great movie....
Hulk vs Iron Man vs Large Grumpy looking cat!
Unfortunately, the ever-present battle between how time needs to be spent (getting work done) and how I want to spend it (not doing work) is going to be lost this evening as I have a number of things I want to finish before tomorrow.
Not afan fan of the green color. Or the arms. But overall I dig it alright.
Surprised how much of a change just flipping the wings around made - the MM parts went into adding on the nosecone, with the 1x1 stud-on-side bits and slopes behind the dome to lengthen it out a bit.
This was a set that was toward the top of my wanted list since I got back into LEGO last year. Of course, since this has been out for over a decade and it is an iconic ship, I can see it being remade at some point, especially since it is only 1200 pieces. This could easily get doubled in piece size and still be a reasonable price.
Man talk about an improvement. 4482 feels like something is going to fall off each time I touch it. 7675 is much sturdier and sits way higher up.
great variation on a classic theme. goes well with #10036 Pizza to Go from my KFOL collection and #41092 Stephanie's Pizzeria from just after my dark age. I also got #60150 Pizza Van and #70910 Scarecrow Special Delivery from the early 2017 releases but haven't gotten to them yet. (My fat ass also likes pizza in LEGO form)
The set looks great. The Italian color scheme is a great change of pace from bright Friends colors, though there are some of those. The pizza prints and stickers are a great addition to what was already out there.
Glad to see a male minidoll, they're as rare as female minifigs. Oliver's shirt is green, reminded me of the pothead pizza guy stereotype. Reminds me of when I thought Swamp Police were going after moonshiners.
Some colors in the instructions weren't clear, often a problem with LEGO. The pizza tiles weren't secure in the delivery vehicle or oven, which has been an issue with other LEGO pizzerias, and this set also has a lot of loose kitchen equipment. As usual for Friends furniture, figures can't sit on the smooth seats. Form over function annoys me in theory, and in practice, I need to get another part. I stockpile 1x2x1 panel with center divider (part 93905) for that.
I swear I could almost smell crust and sauce at times during the build.
As for part color in #41311:
The Italian colors and usual bright Friends colors meshed well.
I liked the kitchen equipment being medium blue instead of bright light orange. The build only used a few of them during bag 1 - at first I thought the rest were extras. I remember one set that only used a few (maybe including a premade bag was easier than setting aside specific parts). Here, the rest were all used in bag 2, but maybe the designers were trying too hard to put them all somewhere. Fork and knife are not needed for pizza. (1 extra set of utensils is normal for extra parts)
As usual, I'm glad I waited for a sale (for 41311, [email protected] promos rather than an outright discount elsewhere)
Doing bag 4 of the #75149 x-wing. again, pulled parts because BL inventory was short, and decided to build while I was at it. This bag was the lower wings - I've loved watching the ship take shape.
was already selling the figures and keeping the ship; BB8 and Poe were in this bag, so I put them in their own 2x3 bags.
The top and bottom don't look quite aligned, whether or not I noticed the sand blue 2x2 plate during the upper wing builds.
The wings stay steady when locked open, but not when closed.
4 wings/engines didn't get too repetitive.
Actually, bags 4 and 5 are upper/lower wing pairs for each side rather than both lowers or both uppers. 5 also has the ammunition; I'm storing it off the ship so as to not stress the firing mechanisms.
By my reckoning, at that rate I should have this built by about 8pm Monday.
Five and a half days entertainment for £47 (brought during a 3 for 2), a bargain! ;)
