Continued wrangling the MegaBloks Enterprise. I had to get my boxes of ziploc bags and sort most of the opened parts bags (which did keep the mess on the table from growing and helped me find pieces later).
Finished Brick Bank. The detail looks great, as usual, but putting on all those little pieces can be a pain in the ass - well, thumbs. Missed a layer of plates, had to remove the next layer (nothing compared to some rebuild stories, I know)
ctrl+scrollwheel to zoom in or out :P
also: the usual recommention: boxes instead of bags, better to search thru.
numberless is a real challenge though... might do it, too next time i get a bigger set again. (first and last time for me was beginning of this year with 5400 pieces)
ctrl+scrollwheel doesn't seem to work on windows XP paint, maybe it works with later versions
Protip: a hash before a set number autolinks to brickset
Thor's mighty mallet of Mjolnir or something completely different?
My boxed UCS Grevious may rest in pieces for a long while still.
Howeverrr... I simply can't imagine how many more Saruman and" Gandalf the Same" figures can we endure . I already have 4 of each atleast .
Weeeellll, I used all the parts, and it's definitely a vehicle of some sort, but when i had finished it didn't much look like the car on the box.
Perhaps next time whilst building I should look at the picture on the box as a reference? :)
Congratulations on the addition to the family.
Look on the bright side, If the baby doesn't sleep through you will want something to do in the middle of the night when you get woken up so win win. ;)
Congratulations on the baby! Kids are fun!
Finished #41560 Jamzy
Replaced the remaining lime tiles in my soccer field with green ones
Added to my common bricks by color collection
Added to my minidoll crowd, including some components I got when parting out sets. Dropped 1 head down the heat vent, guess I'll get an extra next BL order
extra minifigure, I could deal with TLG being that kind of sloppy. I dislike the lego building experience less, though.
on a lego forum talking aobut MB, building a TOS model while watching TNG - now that's religious tolerance. :P
Now I need a Leia and Luke in Endor gear :-)
Nice movie and cute set, but pretty simplistic in my opinion... how many sets do I need to buy to do a proper Kakamora MOC? ;-)
Finished the MegaBloks Enterprise bridge model.
The build got a lot easier near the end, maybe because there were fewer parts to look through, as expected. In general, I love seeing models take shape. When fully assembled, it's hard to disconnect the sections, but that might be good for model stability. The sections weren't quite level, but that might be me or my building surface rather than MegaBloks.
I decided to display it with the characters sitting down. A pin attaching to the back is odd, but maybe it allows for the figures to look more realistic, somewhat like minidolls. The set didn't come with Chekov, so I grabbed him from Day of the Dove (that set is relatively cheap and an army builder, so him missing from this set isn't so much of a problem). I also grabbed a random redshirt to fill the sixth chair.
Next is the transporter room (based on Mirror Mirror), then back to LEGO. Lakeside Lodge, Robo Explorer and Yellow Submarine are the only sets I haven't started yet. MOC idea I haven't started yet is another question.
Done just in time for the 40th anniversary! Big thanks to all how help make this a reality for me: Mortesv, EKae, and Bricksmarlin all over on EB.

It's a fab build - a lot of thought has gone into how it works and how it gets to the other two models.
The instructions came in a cellophane packet, which I was pleased by :
And the finished model:
Really fun, and makes me want the Saturn V even more!
The build was very detailed; TLG has a habit of that and I love it. The model did feel small though.
The bed was covered in tiles so the figure wouldn't stay put when laid down on it. I expect that from minidoll sets, not minifigure ones. As with minidoll sets, I didn't use the tiles. However, I liked Slope 30 1x2x2/3 (part 85984) as a pillow.
A flower in 2x2 round tile with hole (part 15535) was a great lilypad. I didn't like the same flower piece in a frying pan, presumably representing scrambled eggs. It looks nice but won't stay put, could get lost if the model doesn't stay level. Kitchen accoutrements in LEGO sets are often like that.
The hinges were good to open the model for display and play.
