^ I agree, Mike Psiaki is a Genius.
Wrapped up #31048 yesterday. Got this on clearance last year and it’s a nice little build. I thought the moose was creatively done too. I haven’t done the other 2 builds in this set and I’m not sure I will. As a fisherman and outdoors guy, this one is pretty satisfying for me.
Its been an interesting challenge to reverse engineer it, fortunately there are lots of photos of its construction on the Flickr streamed linked above. Its a close copy, within the limits of my brick collection and observation of Dorian's model - funny how looking at it again when building it as opposed to just working out what bricks I needed I've noticed lots of different things.
She's just shy of 97 studs long at the moment and its been good fun building it. Next set of jobs are armaments for the sides, a spot of extra detailing and a pair of stands.
It it has been a fun build over the last few evenings, made extra pleasant being able to build outside in the evening sun. It is bigger than I expected, so am looking forward to seeing the big coaster up close.
I have a few bricks and pieces orders in coming with additional track, but in the mean time I decided to give the pirate coaster a quick extension with a few track pieces that I got from bricklink. It definitely needs more height, and I am going to need a lot more support pieces!
Did you also get some of the "slope" pieces from #10261? (these: https://brickset.com/parts/design-26561).
When on the phone with LCS, I discovered these pieces actually were also made in LBG, but never released. Shame for us #31084-MODders.
Yesterday my 2yr old son pestered me to build some Lego with him. Duplo holds no interest now he has found Lego, and I don’t need much persuading ;)
So I picked out a few small sets on my immediate backlog.
First on his choosing we built #40236. I think the sandwich builds were my favourite part. My son decided that the printed cakes and food were the best bits and promptly took them for his own build!
We then built #40237. He lost interest in the build and only pilfered the eggs. When he realised the eggs had to be hidden and found he was fully engaged.
Then finally his sister joined in and we build the a wing from #75150. This was the definite winner. We all shared the building and swooshing and the hidden play feature for firing the laser bolts was a big hit (just not in the eyes! Don’t point it at your brother!)
I know nothing (apart from the title) about the Freemaker Adventures but there was something about the colour scheme of the Arrowhead that just looked the business.
I have to say, now it's finished, it's has one of the best colour schemes on a Star Wars ship, ever.
It's also a very well put together set and is so sturdy, It's obviously meant to be played with. (Test flight round the living room, ✔).
I do however have one complaint... Not about this set, it really is good.
It's about every other Space ship, be it Star Wars or otherwise, that has stickers on the trans-clear canopies.
If you haven't seen the Arrowhead set yet, go and have a look at the pictures, then zoom in on the canopy.
It is one of the nicest looking, shaped canopies on any set made.
AND ITS PRINTED.
Why can't they all be made to look that good?
Fairly happy with how it turned out!
Thing is, the 1x6 red tile from the top of the double decker coach is missing... Well, off to LCS then.
Retail building with 3 shops, a clothes shop, Asian restaurant and toy store. The alley will go through to a community square.
Enjoyed the build, if somewhat easy, as its my first "powered up" device and I wished to compare with the previous Lego Power Functions I have. The new app is great and I like the features built in to control the batmobile, must find an old handset to run it on before I let my kids get their hands on it! The highlight, for me, is the superb minifigure included. That alone made it worth picking up!
Then while I was on a roll with actually building a set....
....immediately took it to pieces and built the 'B' model.
then just to really take the Sith with all this set building...
Old Darth Square Head himself.
Totally on a roll with this building malarkey.
Just finished building this...
Excellent (not so) little build.
There were a couple of 'what the hell is this bit part of' moments, closely followed by Aha! moments when putting the trigger assembly together and the size of the finished build really is quite impressive.
If all sets had the same amount of thought, design and finish that a good majority of TLNM sets had, I would be a very happy (albeit broke) Lego collector.
As I was cleaning up tonight I took one final look through my spare parts I had accumulated over the course of the build and found a piece that I didn’t think belonged in the spare bin. I don’t know how I missed it previously, but I had sense of dread come over me at the thought of the proverbial needle in a haystack. Luckily I found it fairly quickly. My wife thought I was insane (well, more than usual) when I told her it was going to eat at me if I didn’t find where it went.
At any rate, thrilled to be finished. It’s really impressive. Tough build tho and ready to move on to the next project
Very large building, a lot of open space though. But I can see how children can play with this for days!
Also continuing my ongoing Classic Space "Black Series" although I think I can only manage 3 or so more sets til I'm done.
Super. I look forward to more progress pics.
