    ^ Thanks for the reply. I'm hoping to avoid the feeling of repetition by stretching the build out over five nights, with a lion each night, but my wife is out on Friday night and I'm not sure I have the restraint to stick to this when I've got nothing better to do!!
    I finished the last of the lions last night and combined them to form Voltron and, wow, the thing is frikkin' huge! An absolute unit! It definitely does not fit in a Detolf cabinet, so I guess it's going somewhere else. What a build though - looks amazing and weighs a ton. I really enjoyed putting it together and it didn't feel repetitive as I spread it out across a week.  If I had to pick any faults with it, I'd say the feet on the arm lions aren't very well designed; they look a bit square. This is definitely one of my favourite Lego sets!

    Built #76129 tonight and I've got to say it's probably my favourite set I've built in the past year. It feels substantial for the price point and is open to expansion. It's play features are well hidden and the detail in parts make it feel like a creator set which is a plus!

    I finally got around to buying #75200 at 50% off, and brought it with me on holiday, along with some spare parts. Very happy with the result. While I did not like The Last Jedi overall, I did enjoy many of the Ahch-To scenes, and might even expand this mod further to create a bigger island. It would be nice to have Chewie roasting a porg down by the waterside as well.

    Really enjoyed doing these re-colorings of #75038. Much prefer that interceptor design over that of #75135

    Going to spend the evening rebuilding WV train station after I managed to sweep it off the box it was sat on while carrying garden waste through the house (the curse of no side gate to the garden) managed to fire it 6ft across the lounge into lots if pieces. Not sure I've found them all yet either!

    I just got back from the Harry Potter building event at Barnes and Noble. Here's a picture of the instructions if anyone wants it.

    Finished #21309 in time for the 50th anniversary of the moon landing as I'd planned, and I'm glad I did.

    The scale of the (near)-finished rocket is majestic. The build was a lot easier than other huge LEGO sets I've done, maybe because of 4 identical side panels or 2 similar sets of 2 - could find parts and assemble all at once. The main building challenge was aligning those side panels when attacking them to the center core.

    I liked how the stages were securely attached but easily detachable.

    IDK why but folks on a certain LEGO Technic FB page are dumping on this set.
  • M1J0EM1J0E Calgary, ABMember Posts: 429
    ^ Not sure why.  It appears faithful enough to the source material, & includes a functioning engine at least.  A quick bricklink check shows if it hasn’t appreciated any, it’s at least holding on offer at MSRP, which is better than some sets do.  Is it that it’s not technic enough somehow?

    Maybe they're unfamiliar with "funny cars" over there. There are certain sets they go absolutely bonkers over, however.

    Either way, half price for a Technic set is OK by me ;)

    Completed except for 7 spoiler parts missing. Prev owner included Power Functions batt box, motor, & headlight elements, so I guess.that's an OK tradeoff ;)

    @LittleLori - Thanks for your kind words. I've only seen 1 of the movies but I've read all the books. Maybe it's time to stock up on popcorn and have a movie marathon too.

    Not sure I'd bother if i was you. I finally got around to reading the books and overall they were much better than I'd expected, despite my initial cynicism. Watched the films after the books. The first three were ok I thought, but after that the standard dropped right away and I thought overall they were very disappointing.

    ^^Do you have any availability in your schedule? I don't even know what kind of clinic you have, but I should probably get an appointment. 

    That's a really great idea!

    But you can't have Lego Star Wars troopers without the clone trooper head, it just wouldn't be a proper Star Wars set.
    (Plus it was the only fleshie head I had multiples of to hand at the time). :\

    Just finished building #21046 Empire State Building, very repetitive build but also very satisfying when complete. Will look good alongside my #21042 Statue of Liberty!



    Hope Lego continue with these large Architecture sets as they're great display pieces.

    @PJ76uk - how was the build?  I was worried it looked a bit monotonous but the end result looks great!
  • PJ76ukPJ76uk Derby, UKMember Posts: 378
    @KungFuKenny it is a bit monotonous but as each section joins the primary build and it starts to take shape it becomes worth it!

    The results speak for themselves...

    Got a few older Architecture sets a bit ago to try and get closer to completing that series in my collection.  All of them were used, so I built them out to ensure completeness.  Enjoyed all three builds.  I knew Robie House was on the bigger side, but was still kind of shocked by just HOW big the final build ended up being!

    Solid little set
    saw it at Target and picked it up to go with #75258 (a regular size contemporary model of Anakin's podracer), which in turn I got because #7131 was one of my favorite childhood sets.
    Like other polybags, the building experience is simple rather than good or bad.
    Like many podracer modles, it's somewhat flimsy having to attach the engines and cab while not looking more solid than the movie craft. Yet the finished product was sitll fairly swooshable.

    Will get to 75258 after #31077 which is already open on my building table. As for that:
    The main design appealed to me, as LEGO food themed sets often do.

    The parts of each minifigure were in different bags, and needing to open them all somewhat defeated the point of bags making it easy to build in stages.
    I haven't gotten much further as I'm swapping some pieces around [that's often why I get to a particular set in my backlog]
