    Found #70809 at the thrift store for $30 a couple of months back, open box was only missing the Ma Cop and Dad Cop minifigures. Finally got it built last night. I was a little disappointed that they did not include a second torso and head for President/Lord Business to go with the "normal" legs and hair, but I'm sure I can find reasonably close substitutes among my mis-matched minifigures.

    Last week builds. Great builds and both look really nice on display.



    Looking forward for the mini beetle promo this weekend.

    I'm curious to see what the community does with the printed dome piece once it is widely available. I expect to see some pretty nice r2 mocs.
    It'd also be neat to see people try and build other droids to the same scale.

    I've seen this in the database - where does it actually come from? Was it a promo or something?

    Rebuilt #60004 and #60047 last night after my grandson knocked them down. It was no accident, he had great fun knocking them down with a ball, just like when we play with Angry Birds toys. These are a couple of sets I've had sitting in a bay window since last November. Grandma was mortified that he had "broken" them, but I reminded her that they were put there for him to play with, and nothing was broken, just disassembled. Took about 2 hours to get it all back together, looking forward to the next rebuild :)

    Just be thankful you're only building the one! ;)

    Oh and your clock hands are out of sync... :)

    @Speedman29 I avoid mixing alcohol and LEGO, in case I get too buzzed to build right or spill the drink on the parts. Single malt pairs well with Assembly Square, pricewise. :P Does look cool, though.

    #41309 Andrea's Musical Duet today. Yet agian, opened the box for a part, but had some fun with it. I ignored the instructions and built from the picture. That was a fun puzzle. I did have to zoom in in some cases to figure it out. I previously did that only with polybags, and I figure that might not work with sets much larger than this. I understand the instructions for less advanced builders, but I liked this better than rushing through the booklet.

    I'm not interested in the heart charm made from 2 plate modified 3x2 with hole (part 3176), so I put those with the extras. Then again, I'm not the target market for Friends. The knob on the back of the guitar is great for a minidoll to hold perpendicular to the body.

    Sometimes a bunch of separate tiny models in a set feels disjointed.
    It feels a little small for a $10 set - at least it had a bird if not another minidoll.
    I'm considering #41307 Olivia's Creative Lab from the same batch of sets, at least with discounts/promos.

    The dome looks awesome, but the rest of the build looks pretty plain & boring. I think TLG should have added a bit more to it, even just a few more printed pieces.

    If you were to use #5005147 to add details, does it still count as being "pure" Lego?

    After sitting forlornly in a box since it was purchased a couple of weeks ago, I finally broke out #10212

    @TheFew funnily i stumbled over a few parts of it when sorting my unsorted parts box :P (they somehow managed to skip a few sorting runs in that box already)
    @BillyBricks Have fun :)

    Just a quick after dinner build for me tonight.  May eventually expand this to a modular scale.

  • Glacierfalls265Glacierfalls265 USAMember Posts: 245
    @Switchfoot55 Thank you so much! I'm very proud of it, although it takes up most of my top shelf lol! I'll have to post a picture once I'm back at home, I'm sure it will dwarf the Glacier Falls Lodge and the Half Modular Glass Shop!

    Nice moc! I'm curious what the corner panels are? I can't seem to find them on Bricklink. For my latest build I used over 500 of the 2x2 corner bricks with cutout (which you've also used a few of).

    EDIT: I've just realised you're using the 3x3 panels and bricks, not the 2x2 ones. That explains it...! :)

    ^This is definitely on my list. Great idea by TLG to celebrate such an iconic set!

    What are you using. iPad? Android? I found a great app on my iPad called Image Resizer. Cost 5 bucks to make it really sing.

    @blogzilly Android phone that then goes to Google Drive that then gets downloaded to the computer...so complex!

    If you've got MS Paint select 'Resize' on the 'Home' ribbon > You can then either reduce the % or pixel size via the Radio Button options > The 'Horizontal' and 'Vertical' fields are linked so you only need to amend one :-)

    So finished building the 40th anniversary Technic model which uses parts from 3 sets, #42057, #42061 and #42063.

    So do you use all parts of those 3 sets? Or would it be cheaper to bricklink the parts for this model? (I suspect not)

    Not all the parts are used and most of the set specific parts aren't used.
    Not knowing a lot about new technic, the only parts I would think you definitely require is the wheels an tyres from the telehandler (#4299389, #6055626) and the 3 moulded pieces that make up the bonnet (#6133243, #6176758) with two coming from the BMW and one from the helicopter.
    All the rest look like generic pieces unless in specific colours.
    I was going to Bricklink all the parts but the Telehander doest has a set inventory listed and end up getting all the sets at a great price.

    @Glacierfalls265 I use OneDrive and iOs with an iPad or a PC Laptop, can't help you. Though I am sure Android has a similar group of resizing apps like Apple.
  • sid3windrsid3windr BelgiumMember Posts: 1,427
    Felt like building something so grabbed #5540 out of the closet and it just joined its Model Team friends in the display. So few steps compared to recent sets, but already has the parts listed per step :)

    --SNIP--
    Had to make room for the Assaults on Hoth I plan to buy at 30% off next month. The boys concurred: "let's build the biggest one!"


    SNAFU or why did a brick separator sneak into the picture?

    I've just finished the set 41999 4x4 Crawler Edition limited which is massive.
    The main pos is the look robust and agressive. There are many PF in this set and the building is not very fun and interesting. That's pretty simple and a little repetitive at one moment but it's fun to play with.

    I finally found where I had all the parts for my UCS Star Destroyer, so I'm in the process of rebuilding it. I did a pretty good job of keeping the parts organized, but the larger parts like the wheels/engines were put in a tub full of other Lego parts.

    Just fixed this, the dragon looks more intimidating standing up.
