^ 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.
After getting #31084 recently for a good price, and being rather excited about the coaster parts, I decided to bump it to the head of the queue. 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!
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!)
Retail building with 3 shops, a clothes shop, Asian restaurant and toy store. The alley will go through to a community square.
^WOW!! That Batman is amazing!!!
I've thought about selling the minifigures off of the second docks set I got and combining two to increase the height of the docks.
^ Were you planning to cook your Technic model on the stove top?!
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.
Really needs 4 more 16x16s (or a 32x32, but you'll end up with height differences) in the middle, to furnish the middle a little (trough for the horses with a piece of fence to bind them to, some seating for the figures, maybe a gunrack, etc
Sifting through the thrift store backlog I found #40079.
Super. I look forward to more progress pics.
