Loving the Boba BrickHeadz I picked up from LDC Birmingham...
Should your minifig and brickheadz troopers be left handed shooters too(like your big one)? Oh the symmetry!
finished this one yesterday:
Some more building to go (not to mention the original traincars of #10254):
Glad you like the display, the IKEA Barkhyttan Display Box was just the right size for #75533 Boba Fett. Would love to find a bigger box to do a similar display for #75534 Darth Vader!
Like many LEGO sets it suffers from having a lot of small models, particularly the table, though the sales stand (especially the rotating display case) is fine.
The piececount is low for a $20 MSRP set but that's hard to judge given the special parts, high proportion of minifigures, bicycle and dog. While a Target exclusive, various promotions of theirs plus redcard make the price alright.
#40292 Christmas Gift Box
#75189 First Order Heavy Assault Walker
#75212 Kessel Run Millennium Falcon
Between this & my previous build (Silver Champion) I can't help but marvel at the planning & overall thought processes designers must go through to develop these sets. Simply amazing!
We have the 2011 Fire Station but I'm pretty sure my kids won't want to upgrade; this one kinda smacks of Juniors.
Worth what I paid for it anyway
The YouTube instructions weren't quite the whole story, especially as the standard power functions battery box I used is bigger than the suggested G-Whizz battery box. The standard box just about fits in the bonnet (or hood as some people might know it) at an angle with the front grille assembly altered slightly. The switch is accessible through a gap at the bottom of the front grille, but ideally I'd like to get some longer beams to extend the front end by 1 peg hole to lie the battery pack down flat.
Pics incoming soon, of course!
Quite a challenge for a newbie but enjoying the challenge.
For such a small set I actually left this one remarkably surprised. The speeder-thing is remarkably bulky for being less than 100 pieces.
I haven’t even a huge fan of the skylines (even though finding #21003, basically one part of a skyline, in a gift shop at the base of the Space Needle in 2009 is what brought me out of my dark ages). But Las Vegas is just such a cool city, & probably the only one done in a skyline that I’ve actually been to and recognize all the landmarks, and have memories of most of them. So this was a great find & actually a cool build!
The workshop is very simple, the car almost as simple, and the spaceship only slightly more complex than the car. But I love the set! And here's why:
1. All printed parts
2. Amazing playability for 2 small vehicles and essentially a back-drop
3. The space ship is totally TOTALLY classic space! From the colour scheme to the parts usage, from the logo to the play functions and the overall shape of it. It took me right RIGHT back to the eighties and building ships with my older brother (who got all the best spaceships).
And my youngest son has played with it non stop for 3 hours. Can't recommend it enough. Anyone who is put off by the 4+ 'easy build' marking please reconsider - the big spaceship chassis is still very cool!
