    curious to see how many kids at Edinbrick I can get thinking carrots grow on trees.  Just need to dig out a t-rex to pull it and Gandalf do drive.

    I can image a bunch of LOTR fans are having a heart attack over that sentence. I personally know people that would be shouting "That isn't canon!!!" at their screens.

    ^I may like building mocs that wind people up.  I did a wedding in a wedding cake moc with Wonder Woman and Iron Man as the bride and groom.  I have had several people not happy about it at Lego shows.  Had less issues with it on display at a comicon!

    Second building post in a week or so, rare for me...

    Anyway, like many and others have and are probably thinking of (include a nice example in this thread) the need to combine Tony’s Malibu Mansion set with the Hall of Armour set proved to much.

    Like most of my custom builds I set a few rules.

    1 - the footprint of the set couldn’t be bigger that the Malibu set. It’s snug but appropriate for compact play
    2 - the build needed to be solid, I.e. it can withstand my son playing with it
    3 - outside of the two sets themselves, only Lego from the spares tub.... (always tough that one)

    overall has think this is good, maybe a shame the hall isn’t 1 or 2 bays larger, but that would mean radically enlarging the house above.

    i think putting a little furniture in the house is nice and space for 6 suites is plenty. I also chose to keep the bases grey rather than blue, which I think works well (could add blue for the sea but adding another colour looked odd)

    enjoy.

    Finally got round to building the alternate model of the bucket wheel excavator! Built the first model at xmas but couldn't be bothered taking it apart again until now.

    Took me about 12 hours over the course of a week to finish. Works pretty well, the only flaw seems to be that the little pieces of debris get stuck inside sometimes!

    Timelapse of Build

    On a building run right now.

    Years ago I designed a Tinkerbell house for my daughter, but over the years it has been smashed up.

    I had a go at rebuilding it last night, Much smaller than I recall the original being, but more secure and with more interesting parts (first effort was many years ago so not the parts selection).

    When showing WIPs on Reddit and/or Facebook, I try to make a little scene with them. In this cause, Rex and Lucy have stumbled upon a rare BMW.

    Just finished building 31085 Mobile Stunt Show, managed to find it about 5 months ago at Walmart for only $21! (MSRP is/was 50) Super fun, enjoyable build, and will look awesome on display in my room!

    Finally doing some building again. On the last part of this great lady.
    The base was a pleasure to build, the combination of the technic on the inside and then the cool techniques with the tan.

    The top I'm getting a bit frustrated with trying to line up the pieces properly but it's nice to see it coming together.

    I had some loose parts lying around my room, so thought I would try to make a few micro-scale spaceships out of them! (I’m a sucker for building micro-scale spaceships) I know they need a lot of improvement and don’t look great, but I still quite like them, considering the amount of parts and time I had. By the way, they actually do look a lot better in person than seeing them on camera!

    I'm currently on an Iron Man kick, with #76105 Hulkbuster, #76125 Hall of Armour and #40334 Avengers Tower all completed over the last week with #76124 War Machine Buster still to go.

    I really enjoyed the Hulkbuster build and it looks great on display; the stand really helps it to display better by making it larger. My minor nitpicks are the same as in most of the reviews I've read: legs too skinny, shoulders are a bit odd and why is the arc reactor light orange? And the head piece on mine had a scratch on it (Lego CS are sending a replacement). Overall though, I was really impressed.

    The Hall of Armour looks great once built, especially when it's set up in a semi circle. However, the build was tedious with lots of repetition, made more obvious than usual given the size of the set. The minifigures are excellent, though I'd have sacrificed both of the Outriders for an extra Iron Man suit; personally I don't see the need for 'baddies' in every set.

    The Avengers Tower GWP is a nice little build that looks good on display. The  exclusive Minifigure was a bit of a let down; a full suit would have been preferable. Still, gotta catch 'em all!

    @Th1nDiesel In case you want to improve that Hulkbuster, there a nice Mod available on Rebrickable here.



    Disclaimer: 100% not mine, but something I'm planning to do to my own set.

    I sourced the extra pieces (520 total) for about $54 on bricklink, shipping included. Just as an FYI.

    Thanks... i used to have at least 10 times as many Classic cars magazines as i did Lego sets. Some cleaning up and some more Lego changed the ratio to about 3:1 i guess... ;)

    Just need to get that UK elusive #30452 Iron Man and Dum-E polybag to complete the Endgame collection. Highlight of this subtheme has to be #76126 Avengers Ultimate Quinjet which is a superb addition to my quinjet collection! #76125 has an excellent set of minifigures too, all those Iron Man suits!



    Off to Florida in the summer so if I still don't have #30452 by then I will definitely pick one up over there if I find any!

    I still want to know where that Captain America Motorcycle came from.  

    'Hey - design some sort of spacey motorcycle for Captain America.  But not too much like Ghost Rider's.  Good luck!'

    'Uh, okay?  Is there concept art?'

    'No.  No leaks.  We're lucky to know that Captain America is even in the movie.'

    My guess is something along the lines of:

    'We need something for Capt. America in this price bracket'

    'One helicopter coming up!' (clicks control-C on the helicopter file)

    'No, we already put that in the big base set, has to be something else'

    'Oh ok, how about bloated motorbike covered in missiles? Research show 7 out of 10 Lil Timmy's love this crap.'

    Just built #76119 and it is a decent little build for the price. One of the better minifigure scale Batmobile's in recent years. Well worth getting, especially with a discount like I did from Smyths!



    Very reminiscence of #7784 which is one of my favourite Batman display models.

    I recently built a BrickHeadz figure of the main character of Hollow Knight:

    However, after ordering the parts to make it IRL, I decided that I went a little overboard on the cloak details and lost some of that essential blocky feel for BrickHeadz, so I revised it in LDD today:

    Unfortunately, can't revise it IRL until the dark grey 2x2 quarter circle tiles come out in this summer's Hidden Side sets. But I think repositioning the sword and simplifying the geometry of the cloak make it look a lot better.

    Turned the Action Battle Endor Assault into a small scene for my Star Wars Amusement Park section. Built with only pieces I already own - definitely want to fill in the missing dark green spots that are visible, but that will have to wait until I place a BrickLink order.

    Finally finished building the Motorized Excavator set (8043)

    Had this one sitting in pieces for a while, decided to rebuild it again.

    I like how much functionality it has - basically an RC toy when it's built...shame I'm terrible at controlling it :D

    Finished #10266 Apollo 11 lander.  I tried 2 different light temperatures to get the effect right. I'm thinking of adding some studio lights, a backdrop and a little Stanley Kubrick figure in a director's chair, you know, since he helped shoot the faked footage of the landing.
