    All 6 images in my posts above have been reduced in size, so as to not make the previous page load at a crawl. Although saying that, they're the last ones on the page, so it's likely it wouldn't make a difference at that point. Thanks!

    @MaffyD that's so cool, i guess I'm going to see if I can find the necessary pieces for those now. Although first need to tidy up all the red bricks and put the finishing touches to my fires station.

    Decided to spend my Sunday building one of my favourite sets! About time I had this little guy on display again.

    I've been puttin my finishing touches on my MOC fire brigade, will get pictures taken in daylight tomorrow. After just a little bit here and a little bit there I did fancy something else so broke open #4000010: LEGO House. It had been tempting me from the shelf for so long, really fancied putting it together.


    Enjoyed it, but the whites are really not all equal. But I guess I just have to not be too OCD about things about that.

    @MaffyD thanks for trying to control image size.

    -

    #30398 - was looking for something to do for a few minutes and grabbed a polybag. even that is more than I've done with my backlog in months.

    This set's aesthetic fits nicely with the bigger Adventure Camp sets, particularly 41121 Rafting and the water aspect of 41122 Tree House.

    The frog on a rock is a nice change of pace from those on lilypads. Either way, it's appropriate for the water setting; Friends sets often have animals that don't fit the set's topic, like the hedgehog in 41120 Adventure Camp Archery. I also liked the new backpack piece.

    It would be easy to combine multiple copies if you got them cheap, which I didn't. I missed it as a promo, and later saw some at the LEGO Store for $5. Usually polybags start out around $4 and can be found discounted. I was still glad to get a few towards the then-current promo and to complete my collection of the theme.

    #40235 Year of the Dog
    I got this not as a Chinese New Year set, but as a dog set. It's similar to the brick built canines in #40201 Valentine's Cupid Dog and #31044 Park Animals.
    I like the circular stand and the symmetry thereof; that's the main thing that helps this stand out from the others.
    Like those, this has movable joints, which really adds to the playability, realism, and cuteness factor. The head being able to rotate all the way (The Exorcist puppy!) is funny. The conical piece with a round tile on top was a new way to do the snout, and this has 2x2 eyes next to each other rather than spaced 1x1's.
    During the build, the dog doesn't start to take shape until the tail step and not really until you assemble the head.
    This has a box with a flip open top. Usually those are larger, but this is still nice for storing the instructions and gift envelope.
    It's hard to judge the value of a promo set, but I did get a good deal on the stuff I bought to get it. I am glad I kept rather than traded this one.

    Finished the Disney Castle, now starting on Market Street but I'm still missing a few pieces,the most critical of which should arrive this week.

    Picked the WRC Fiesta up from Milton Keynes. Nice to see something other than supercars being released. Hopefully it'll pave the way for more rally cars. Stickers, stickers and more stickers though, but it looks awesome. Shame all the snow has melted before I got the chance to photograph it!

    I used parts from #75910 and loosely followed the instructions from #75888 to build this.

    Quick build this morning with my 2yo granddaughter.  She’s getting better everyday at fitting the bricks together which is neat to see!

    Probably just me, but with the sticker placement on the bumper on the 911 Turbo 3.0 from #75888 - All I see is a cartoon frog.  Or maybe Skip from the original Bob the Builder series.

    ^^ The tractor and #60180 Monster Truck are a couple of really appealing sets from the new City ones, and the RRP on them is good, too (although it's fairly easy to get them for 20% off or more).

    Building a school - two floors.  Bottom floor is cafe and gym, upper floor is two classrooms.  I'm relatively lazy so no stairs to get between floors lol.  I've also modified a city bus to be a school bus.  I'm pretty chuffed, as the brits say!

    I bought my husband a huge joblot of lego off Ebay for Xmas, and have been helping him sort it ever since. It came with instructions, including a castle. However we found 2 more castles, which needed some instructions and have been busy on bricklink ordering the missing parts. So here are 8877, 7094 and 70404! My favourite was 7094 with the dragon (most of the dragon was missing!). The hardest to build was 8877 with the old style instructions, as I kept missing bits, and working out dark bluish grey and black is a pain too (I found a few more bits missing as I built too!). So about 50 sets built so far, another 140 to go!

    What makes me the most jealous about this is that the last set of classic style Castle stuff was super awesome, with great Dragons and awesome buildings... and it was before I got back into collecting.  And it's so popular that the prices are high enough that I can't justify buying the sets!  That was definitely a great find, even having to replace a brick or figure piece here or there!

    I'm building my first ever big set, 3 bags down it's looking great.

    Also protective cases are a double edge sword. Great for keeping the set dust free, but the reflection makes taking photographs quite tricky. :)

    A really crappy day, but at the end of it there was some brightness, in form of the futuristic flyer (#31034).

    Last night I built another Batman poly:

    And with his big brother:

    It's a shame it can't move the wheels around like the big model though:

    Still, it's a nicely built model. All photos have been compressed to save on bandwidth.

    no idea as part 6172692 had never been used in a car. hell it's only been in 2 set's.

  • TheFewTheFew EnglandMember Posts: 1,497
    It's not an official set. And it does need a few #48995 in white. Again another rare part...
  • bandit778bandit778 Docking Bay 94. Member Posts: 1,983
    @TheFew
    Might end up being cheaper to get some key chains and wipe the tile than buy the part. Especially as it's double points at the moment.

    #42069. Over two thousand pieces, and no numbered bags! :o

    Thanks for the idea! I would never have thought of that.

    Edit. I think I would leave the Lego logo in place! Of to the market place!

    My latest Batmobile polybag build:

    It's a neat little car, and despite not being very faithful to the movie, or to the minifig version, it's instantly recognisable IMO. Here it is next to the bigger version:

    Also, I can finally say that I've built one of my Secret Santa presents from 2016! Took a while but I've managed. Spoiler alert: another one will be making an appearance at some point soon!

    ^ Also, I'm trying a new image resizer app for android and it's really intuitive and quick - it can't crop, so you have to do that when you take the photo. But it squashes them a lot. If people think there's too much pixilation let me know. And if you'd like to try it out, it's this one:

    That's a pretty good idea.  I tend to upload my camera photos to dropbox, then resize them in mspaint on the computer, which is... just a pain.  Not hard, and honestly not really time consuming, but I would be lying if I said it hasn't kept me from posting pictures in the past.  Having it all right there on the phone would be great if it can still turn out decent pictures after resizing.

    While I would absolutely love to have a great pair of windshield wipers, let alone a Porsche, I sadly have neither :P  All accolades go to @TheFew for the build, which they built based on the design they linked above!
