    Well, so much for keeping this under wraps. To be fair, it's gigantic and wasn't going to stay hidden. Conversation went something like this, yesterday morning as I was waking up and my wife was dressed and getting ready for work:
    Wife: "What are you building now?"
    Me: (swearing to myself for leaving it out) "That's the Death Star Docking Bay."
    W: "Uh it's huge."
    M: "Nah, it's not that big. Plus it's going to get trimmed down."
    W: "Looks pretty big to me."
    M: "Nice to hear."
    W: glares at me angrily at that comment

    progress pics to come when I get home tonight

    Here's how that conversation would have ended in my house...

    W: "Looks pretty big to me."
    M:  "That's what she said."
    - Shoe flies across room -

    And in unrelated news, I put 'dry shampoo' in my hair this morning instead of hair spray.  I didn't know 'dry shampoo' was a thing.  (But my hair smells lovely.)

    There is just too much to comment on...

    Cat
    Futon
    Yoga Ball
    Bouncy Seat?!?!
    5 Gallon Paint Bucket

    You gotta get that Stealth Flyer in the air!!!!

    And a Carousel.  

    Love the Futron Space minifigure display.  One of those is on my list as well.

    I just built up #60221 which I picked up for 20% off at TRU last day. I went in hoping to find the new TLM2 sets a few days early, but this and a couple of DC sets (also on sale this week!) made up for the lack of new Lego Movie sets. I really like this model! It's quite simple, but very well realized.

    It's not a bit sparse do you think?

    I'm missing a few "key players" (Beta-1) & Galaxy Explorer but i didnt ever have those.
    Approx. 10 sets left to add.

    Might just be me, but the baseplate in the middle of the 2nd row is catching my eye as out of place! Would've looked more orderly if the "road/runway" was pointing downwards to join up with the centre plate as well as the plates left and right adjacent?

    Wish I'd held on to my childhood classic space from the 80s, as an AFOL I have only managed to get my hands on #918 and #6980 but then again trying to collect all classic space might be a slippery slope I don't want to go down! You have a very impressive layout and look forward to seeing it completed.

    It WAS originally "connected" to the center pad, but I flipped it for the "build-in-progress". It should make sense once it's completed over the coming days.

    If you take a close look at the 32x32 baseplate, an experienced eye could tell what set it will be...but I'm not telling ;)

    Just finished building #76126 and my Quinjet collection is complete, at least until they release another one!



    I enjoyed the build and it has certainly got my excitement levels for Endgame to go up a notch or two! The model itself is great, quite different to previous incarnations and definitely jumps straight in at number 2 on my list of favourite minifig scale Quinjets!

    1) #6869 Quinjet Aerial Battle
    2) #76126 Avengers Ultimate Quinjet
    3) #76032 The Avengers Quinjet City Chase
    4) #76051 Super Hero Airport Battle
    5) #76127 Captain Marvel and The Skrull Attack

    Well, she fits through the truncated gate. Now to start tiling the floor and the fun part which is making the coffee table. Any suggestions for plexi/tempered glass?

    To maximize realism, I would suggest ray shields.

    Vet’s surgery and waiting room now done. 

    Functional tiled flooring throughout. Not sure the waiting clients are keeping their pets under control though.
    Also switched the 2x1 brick with hole and 2x1 plate in the wall so fish is now right way up.

    Kids being mercifully quiet, enthralled with watching "Teen Titans go to the Movies" and DHL just delivered my order so a quick build of #40334 was in order! It surpassed my expectations and is definitely my favourite GWP so far!



    Now just need to collect the rest of the Endgame sets, preferably before Thursday when I head to the cinema!

    Just finished #10264 CG. Meh. Felt flimsy. Not a fan of the gaps in the facade.  And open staircase? Like we’ve progressed right back to CC and GG.

    #75227 Darth Vader Bust might have been a limited release, but with no exclusive parts in it, a simple B&P and PaB order resulted in this:



    Total cost approx EUR 50. BL might have been cheaper, but with Left/Right Plate 4X6 (elements 6258209 and 6258214) new in this set (and the just released Tie Fighter), B&P was the only place with those parts available when I checked.

    @Gibbo1959 I was wondering whether you can tell me what the black headlight brick/ black nipple element/black ice skate combination on top of the red tool cart in #10264 is supposed to be. I'm stumped! 
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 918
    ^A vise, maybe?
  • Bludchylde1Bludchylde1 Member Posts: 48
    Don't have the set, but looking at pictures a vise makes sense.

    Actually, for being just three pieces, it's pretty cool!

    I'm doing the same sort of thing, but I'll be splitting my purchases between B&P & BL, just planning on one change, I've grabbed the 24246 1x1 half circle tile in Flat Silver instead of LBG.

    @Cymbeline TBH your guess is as good as mine - I assumed it was some sort of oil can with an overly elaborate handle!

    @Briking I agree this feels like a step back from the most recent modulars - open stairs is a poor design but the restricted building footprint probably doesn't allow for more walls to enclose it. Upper floors built out over the forecourt would have worked better.

    Top floor to follow when I get a spare evening.

    I think I may be a little bit behind everyone else (backlog may have gotten out of hand) as just built my first Lego Batman Movie set.


    Great little build, excellent minifigures (Ivy is one of the best from the range), fun to put together and a good end product when finished.
    No complaints at all really......well..... maybe just one.

    What the hell is going on with the truly fricken horrible to apply, where did that speck of dust come from, crap that isn't quite straight and peeling it off is going to mark it, transparent onto clear and black pieces of a sticker sheet.
    I don't care what anyone else thinks, those things are shite.

    Apart from that little crinkle to my sanity, top marks for a very well designed set. :)

    The Scuttler is the one TLBM set that hasn't been disassembled in my collection.  I loved the design and the build experience.  I guess it was just a bit overpriced because man, there were alot of them sitting on the clearance shelves for months...

    personally I find this set not very stable, the front legs hardly support the weight.

    Neither have I. Growing up I have been in a few wood working shops so it is weird for me to see the vise on a tool box instead of a bench.

    This is quite literally the only Batman set I've ever bought for the build. I freaking love that thing! It's easily the finest Bat-vehicle Lego has ever done.

    So been a while since I bought something not CMF’s, but got this on discount at Amazon. Ive always loved interior location sets, and this is no exception! What a fantastic build.

    Just finished a strip-down and rebuild of #10198 Tantive IV:





    Inspired by the new one, obviously - although more in the sense that the new one looks good, but (to my eyes, anyway) not [i]that[/i] much better than the old one, more a rebuild of the same thing just with improvements here and there.  Which got me thinking I could save AU$350 by just improving the one I had.  It's a way short of 'just like the new one' in a bunch of places - especially the lack of interior space in the body, I kept it vertically narrow by moving the Technic spine inside that area rather than having it beneath the floor - but I'm pretty happy with it.

    The angled panels at the mid-rear were a major goal for the build - I never liked the original design's use of tailfins to suggest those (the new one using the same design was part of what convinced me to make my own 'new' ship).  Ended up picking up one of those Minecraft figures for the four ball joints (I know I've got them in the storage bins somewhere, but very few, it would've been so much searching), and the panels themselves use old Space wing plates, with the notch at the corners, since they have a slightly wider angle than new wings and fill the area a little better.  And since I had the thing spread all over the table anyway, I took the chance to add a nice thick coat of white paint to the inside of the printed clear pieces on the hammerhead (avoiding the windows, obviously) - they're still a colder white than the rest of the ship (especially with it starting to show its age by taking on a bit of a cream tinge) but it's at least a nice strong white, rather than the slightly shadowy surface the one-sided print gave.

    It looks like the road plates are suspended on LEGO pillars?  Or are they just resting on books or something?  Curious how you did it.  Looks good!

    Was using my daughters number blocks but just made height fillers from lego, -not enough blue to be a river or anything to be river bank  ,it had gothic effect on bridge ends but pedestrian walkway and poor light took from it and the downside is now I must get more roadway
