    Just built Bag 1s of #10263.  Meh.
    It's supposed to be designed for a child to easily assemble, as often these sets are built as a family.

    As mentioned by the designers in the designer video.
    It's a Creator Expert set.

    As mentioned on the front of the box.

    when building the UCS Y-Wing, I noticed the reactors used studs on all sides as well as 45° angles. yet that was pretty easy to build.

    I spend a fair amount of time intently 'studying' 'work' on my phone.  

    Doing a WonderWord is a bit too obvious.

    Cheeky beggar! I'll have you know that having a slightly overgrown garden is 
    de rigueur over here and my lawn is the envy of the neighbourhood!

    As for the molehills that are just out of shot, they make onlookers weep in envy.

    I've finally started building the Build Better Bricks Oliphant and I'm really enjoying it so far. It's already looking really impressive in size and the build has been interesting as well. At its simplest, it's a very large mech / constraction figure:

    Did a quick build of #40358 & put it up with the winter village.  Cute little set & was a nice find just after it came out with a fall cross border shopping trip.

    That's looking great @JudgeChuck! Looking forward to seeing the final build and your overall thoughts on it. Definitely feeling more and more like I need to have this in my life!

    ^I finished it the night before last!

    You can see the scale of it though. It's impressive in size. I think whoever made the MOC has managed to capture the overall look of the creature really well and it's an excellent building experience. I especially like the head and the way he has captured the four tusks and trunk.

    The only criticism that I have of it is that the legs cannot be posed much, due to the weight of the model, which caused the shoulder and hip joints to collapse, if they're posed far away from vertical. This is entirely down to the lack of friction in the Technic joints.

    Other than that, I'd heartily recommend it, it's a brilliant model! I just need to dig out some LoTR minifigs to pose with it.
    That is a shame to hear about the legs, was hoping to be able to get a good action pose. The size certainly looks more substantial than I was anticipating!

    Are you going to try to recreate the Haradrim minifigs that B3 used in their promo photos?

    Just finished putting together #40292 Christmas Gift Box, a simple enough build but interesting technique for the golden box on top and some rare (for me) coloured bricks.

    2/3 thru this beast, Silver Champion. Just installed the seat tonight. I only have time to do little bit here & there. Presently 2 ft (60cm) long.

    Also, recommended age is 11 & up which I strongly disagree with. Highly challenging build.

    Yes they're "damped", they SLOWLY return to their extended position. My educated guess is they'll aid in raising a section of exterior to expose the engine. I also have set #8445 Indy Storm which employs a single damped absorber (same piece) to do the same.

    Decided to add some Lego decorations to the already crazy amount in the house.

    I'm quite impressed with the Wickedbrick display box for the Claus Brickheadz.

    The review of the Porg on Brothers Brick took the time to point out that once you finish building its body, the bricks on the inside of the neck are predominantly red, so it looks like it's been beheaded.

    Also, I realized they couldn't simply edit all the puffins out for the Ach-To scenes, but did they really need to make them an actual part of the storyline?

    Grandson and I built a pair of #30543 Creator Holiday trains on Sunday. Had the Angry Birds sets out all weekend. I'm really surprised how far those little catapults can fling a minifigure!

    You know what they say: "when life gives you cuddly, highly marketable lemons, make lemonade!"
    Honestly, I feel like for all the hate Star Wars gets any time it introduces cute aliens, it's often struck me as odd how rarely cuddly, lovable animals show up in that universe, considering how hard it is to go through real life without encountering stuff like dogs, cats, squirrels, or rabbits. I think it's nice that once in a while it introduces animals that aren't designed to be disgusting, dangerous, or monstrously huge. Though I suppose as far as "pets" are concerned, droids usually tend to take the place of those in Star Wars movies.

    I was finally able to put together the new WV Fire Station last night. It was a very enjoyable build for me.

    ...however, my set arrived without a sticker sheet! I looked through both instruction booklets about a hundred times to make sure it wasn't stuck between pages or something random like that. 

    Off to CS to resolve the issue!
