    I've been thinking about getting the forest tractor, since it looks like a nice little tractor set, and would go well with the new technic logging vehicle coming out this summer. 

    And the alternate builds for TLM movie sets would definitely look good going down the street of a modular building lined city street!

    Lego Palace Cinema 
    I want to mod it so it says Terrace instead of Palace, but first I need to build it. I have other modifications that I want to do in the future like make the Theater bigger and change the screen to a square instead of that crazy shape.

    @stlux great to build together with your nieces, I've got the ice cream van too and regret not picking up the other ones. We got most TLM sets but for some reason those fell by the wayside  (as did the ship).

    Speaking of ships (see what I did there?) I just finished the Bounty. It's been a bad week health-wise but I've kept up with building a little bit each day to cheer me up. And it looks well good!


    I've just finished the Bounty today as well. It was a fun build, but I can't help thinking how awesome it would be if I could pick up a second set cheaply. Two sets combined would make one amazing large ship. It just looks a little back end heavy to me and some of the rooms don't have much space. There is a stunning 1m long ship to be made from 2 sets. I bought mine very cheaply, £55, and am kicking myself now for not getting a second one at the time.

    They don't need my help building sets that size ;) They just concentrated quietly on it for an hour.

    The 5 year old built the tractor and the 7 year old one the pizza van. Only thing I helped with were the stickers, and that's because I told them I wanted to put those on... Oh, and putting the rims in the tractor's tires, as that requires some force.

    Coming to my place is a bit like going to a toy shop for them. Even though they have a decent Lego collection themselves, it is dwarfed by mine ;)
    They actually wanted to put together the Saturn V - I think they were mostly fascinated with the fact that it's almost as big as they are. however as we will be moving in just 4 weeks, I steered them towards the smaller sets...

    Once we have moved, I'll put together #42070 6x6 All Terrain Tow Truck with them. Especially the 5 year old is eager, she even had it on her Christmas wishlist! 
    (Yes, I know that set has many issues, but as I bought it for less than EUR90 I feel happy with that purchase.)

    Yes, that's the sort of thing I'd envisaged. Looks great. Reduced to £74.99 on Amazon today as well. A bit more than I wanted to pay for a second one, but very tempted.

    Ha. I guess I did it to make sure everyone blows their LEGO budget on Destiny's Bountys.

    Just finished building the Lego Cinema Palace ->

    and the next build is going to be the Diner build. I'm in the process of make my own Lego City downstairs and in the future I plan on doing modifications.

    Pet Shop done. This was my first modular. Really enjoyed building it. Lots of techniques that were new to me. Lovely details and nice to have something that is not a grey Star Wars spaceship.

    Had to do do a bit of back tracking a couple of times due to colour blindness + poor lighting + bad colours in instructions. 

    Palace cinema next.

    Yup good idea @Speedman29, I like it! Maybe just change the face/shirt on one of the sellers too.

    I've just made a quick little microfighter, I enjoy those little sets, they got bags of personality for something so little I find.

    I have a couple of Ninjago minifigures laying round so things will get mixed up for variety!

    Love the Microfighters too, kicking myself for not buying the Y-Wing when it was on sale in Sainsburys, they've vanished from all the shops now and its left a hole in my display!

    I am in the process of gathering parts for a rendition of Obi-Wan's blue interceptor in the form of 75038. Any suggestions on possible creative liberties?

    Bag 2 done.  My wife is doing awesome at this, despite not having built LEGO before!  This is really a great cooperative build though to introduce someone to LEGO, when everything so far is quite symmetrical, or 2X assemblies.  The subject matter of course appeals to those who haven’t built LEGO before, but woe to our family budget if I’ve created another AFOL! :D

    Loving the layout @ecmo47 oh to have that much space to spread out! Reinforcing the bridge is the sensible route I'd say, its looking amazing so far.

    Great job on bridge ,reinforcement is essential as Lego structure sags over time , watch the Lego destruction/disaster videos , U xcould try that if You're feeling adventurous plus remaking can be fun without having to start from scratch

    Finally got around to starting a fun project this weekend. A used (and EXTREMELY dusty) #8455 Back-Hoe Loader cleaned, sorted, and ready to build! The picture was taken a few steps into the building process. The sneaky sock was an added bonus for those photo inspectors. NFL Seahawks socks

    This will be my first Technic build and one I'm really excited about! I have the Ferrari F1 Racer 1:10 #8386 waiting for me once this one is complete too.

    @Switchfoot55 - You have picked an absolute winner of a set for your first technic build. The amount of pneumatic functionality packed into this small set is nothing short of amazing.
    Enjoy!

    ^I've always been curious about technic sets. For me, the building process is what it's all about in Lego, and technic has always seemed to offer even more in the way of building. However, I'm cheap at heart, and have had a difficult time spending the cash to test the waters. 

    I found this and the Ferrari set for what I felt was a great price and finally jumped in. They were both fully assembled when I bought them, so I got to play around with the features  before disassembly. All I can say is WOW! I'm about 1/5th into the actual building and have to say I love it so far! It's a new and unique challenge for me. Can't wait to finish it up and see it finally shine without all the dust weighing it down!

    Members of Brickish, the UK-wide Lego User Group, are doing a collaborative modular street this year. Today I got the last few pieces to finish my contribution, a Modular Newspaper Office, so I thought I'd share a few photos.

    The main idea was to make it look like two adjacent buildings had been taken over by the Newspaper.

    Easily a day one modular buy right there!  I will always love that printing press build!

    Thanks! It does use approx 3500 pieces though, so rather more than a normal modular! I suspect you can see where all the extra pieces are used...

    @Switchfoot55 I'm also partial to #8862. I think it was the original backhoe excavator. It was a pretty awesome build in it's day.

    ^It has certainly been a good challenge thus far. My schedule is only allowing small windows of build time currently, so I'm enjoyed a prolonged building process!

    Here is MY Silent Mary and Imperial Flagship hybrid I've been working on. The sails you see in the pics are from TBB, and NOT the ones the final ship will receive. They are the same size though, so I used them to design the masts.

    @ecmo47 I'm not convinced that medium blue one is really a modular but it still looks good in my book. Love the sloped road and would really like to see more photos showing how you did it.
