    Currently missing 19 pieces in total for the Barracuda before I get to build that one too!

    I wish they would bring back Pirates. Building Destiny Bounty made me think of how good Pirates could be with all the new building techniques and pieces at designers disposal.

    @Charmiefcb agreed. The bounty is my favourite build of recent years. I would love some pirate ships like that

    Bag one complete. That is a cute little tie advanced and I am very happy with the droids.

    No wonder it took 20 years to build!
    You should start work on a second one, just in case some unruly kids blow up the first one...

    I put together the custom Buzz Lightyear Brickheadz my SS 2019 giver bought me, yesterday,  and the Spider Crawler polybag today. Need to do this year's Snow Groomer(also from them) soon.

    I feel your pain @sumolego I had to build the Playmobil hospital a couple of years ago. The parts are reasonable quality, but there is no logic to the build. Open bag A, take one part out, open bag 7J, remove 3 parts, bit don't use them for three stages. Now take another piece that's identical to the one you took from bag A and connect the two together! Was glad when it was over!
    Yesterday was City sets, today the kitchen table has #75254 out to build.

    Started working on the Disney Train Station. got 2 1/2 bags in last night. went to move it to the den this morn to "save" it from the visiting grandsons and it slipped off the tray I had it on, crashed to the floor and broke apart. I'm pretty sure I found it all. Good news is I had one 1x2 with the brick pattern on it inserted backward way at the bottom. that will be easy to fix now.....

    I’ve just finished the 1989 Batmobile. Fantastic build - it left me in awe of the designers. How on earth did they come up with that build? I loved how you’d make a section and then click it into place on the vehicle and just admire the angles they’d created.

    I’d certainly recommend this set.

    Bag 2 complete. This battle station is starting to take shape





    I think I managed to loose a 1x3 tile, rather than the set missing it. Was building while sitting on the sofa. Picked out pieces from the tray, and put on instructions book. While attaching the pieces I found I was a 1x3 short, which I was sure I picked out. So grabbed another one. Got to the last stage and found I was missing the same 1x3. 
    Thorough search of the sofa and surrounds did not reveal it, so had to grab one from my spares. 

    Lesson learned: Don’t build on the sofa!

    @Addicted2Oxygen
    why don’t you put in a custom shooting range so the Stormtroopers can get some much needed target practice?

    Day 101 of target practice. Darth Vader chokes on his aspirations.

    Finally got round to picking up #75246 Death Star Cannon to rebuild into this.
    There wasn't quite enough parts to do what I wanted so nicked a Tie Wing from #75237 (that I picked up cheap for the rebel fleet troopers) to use as the floor. 

    Quite pleased with the outcome all things considering but when the Christmas decs are down I plan to make it slightly more substantial so it fits in better with #75229 and CELEB2017-1 - Detention-Block-Rescue that I have built on display.

    I’m enjoying watching your build progress... #10188 was the set that brought me out of my dark age over 10 years ago, so I definitely have a sentimental attachment to Lego Death Stars

    One thing i am I am curious about is why they used bricks between the ceiling and floor plates instead of just plates. I understand the need for the multiple plates for strength, just not sure why bricks and not plates? 
    would it make the sphere too ovoid?

    Are the bricks not too large and is there air between the ceiling and floor? If that’s the case I think they used bricks so the plates wouldn’t warp (which does happen if you put 3 or more layers of plates on top of each other due to small imperfections.  And with a huge area this effect becomes a problem.)

    about half way through apocalypseburg, and I have an idea why it's as expansive as ninjago city despite the number of pieces. yeah it's pretty big. and every bag so far seems full of big pieces.

    Just finished the 70837 Sparkle Spa I got for Christmas. Really nice build, all prints and no stickers with a lot of great little pieces I can use for other stuff later.

    Only one nitpicky thing is the instructions had 3 or 4 points where the picture was a step or two ahead of the parts being added before going back to the correct picture. I had seen a few other sets people posted about on Reddit with the same problem last year but the first time I've seen it myself. It's a little disappointing since Lego's quality control on those sort of things used to be top notch.

    Yes, I had the same issue. I was disappointed to see such poor errors. Ok for me to easily realise the mistake but it could confuse kids building it.

    I decided to dabble with the Trolls stuff today; I tend to like whimsy. I know nothing about the characters and was hoping for the caterpillar bus, but they didn't have it at the shoppe I stopped at. I grabbed the techno mermaid and the polybag. I gathered from browsing the sets that each one suggests a different musical genre, and there was no 'classical' set... so, techno it is. :p
    Of the two, the polybag is my favorite. It's a cute AF little cart, and surprisingly includes the extra parts bag (with musical notes, muffins, and assorted Troll specific bits), along with some great pieces like a lavender treasure chest. I think it'll eventually end up being coopted by Tinkerbell. :p
    The mermaid set is kinda fun, but it was plagued by a sheet of fully annoying foil stickers (the records, much to my dismay, are not prints...). The decal on the front of he dj booth was a complete pain to apply correctly, with no margin for error. I had to pry it up with an x-acto twice. The finished model is exactly what I expected, but I dunno how long it will stay assembled. :p
    The figures themseves are cute though. If I ever see the film, I might appreciate them more. They look more like rainbow coloured Smurfs to me than troll dolls.

    Edit: I just realized how much I actually had to say about a couple of little Trolls sets, hahaha.

    As a father of two girls that love the Trolls movie, I also kind of like it (it grew on me). However, I hate these sets. Especially the minifigs, they're just awful. The hair has no purpose or magic, and it's a main feature of the characters, and the faces just look creepy.
    And I hate how Elves, which was an amazing theme, is being substituted by all these licensed themes - TLM2 partially filled in the gap, now Trolls. I did like most TLM2 sets, and I ended up buying more than I expected, but still, Elves was Elves. The only thing remotely close to it has been #41164 Enchanted Tree House from the Frozen 2 movie (which, by the way, isn't even featured on it - yes, it doesn't happen only in Marvel Super Heroes sets, everything Disney movie-related is like this).

    Yeah, I have no attachment to the IP. I'm just drawn to the sets based entirely on what I see. They're wonky Lego creations. These figures are no better nor worse in my head than the minifigs dressed like food or animals, and no more out of place among other minifigs than Mickey Mouse or Killer Croc.
    I do have to say that I will always prefer sculpted hair over brushable, plastic hair. On anything. I'm sure there must be Trolls dolls out there to fill that niche as well though, no? Can you imagine how much time you'd spend picking little hairs off of the bricks if these had hair? Plasic hair requires upkeep (combing in minute amounts of synthetic oils every few years to stave off brittleness and frizz), which I've no desire to invest in Lego minifigs. :p

  • jnscoelhojnscoelho PortugalMember Posts: 484
    Oh, I don't want no plastic hair either and I've said no to all requests for Troll dolls. I can barely stand the My Little Pony ones... I just don't think Trolls go well in minifigure format.
  • SnizzlebuttsSnizzlebutts MelbourneMember Posts: 54
    Yeah, I kinda hate the heads on the minfigs. If they were standard Lego head size but with custom faces with custom colours I might have found them more palatable. But I do like the movie so will get a few of the sets for my daughter. She will like them for sure.

    It seems the First Order have dress down Friday’s.
    not quite the correct legs. The first time I have ever had a wrong part in a set - sure Lego CS can correct on Monday.

    My son got the Volkswagen T1 Creator Bus #10220. He's not a huge Lego fan as of yet, but he wanted this set for Christmas. He's 9 years old and sometimes struggles with fine motor skills, so assembly can be difficult.

    This set was probably not a good match for him: unnumbered bags, difficult build, final model turned out to be a bit fragile.

    Anyone have any tips to make the bus stronger? What I've noticed is that the way the motor is placed in the bus, it tends to fall out. the plate the motor attaches to is placed on the bottom of the chassis rails.

    @Addicted2Oxygen -I love seeing sets lit up.

    @Bumblepants Your MOC is beautiful. Fits in so well with #70620. I see part for the detective office and the shrimp shack in there and some familiar parts and stickers that I cannot place.

    I am working on an Asian Gateway for a little park I want to build. Meant to be very simple. I think it is call a Tori. I am looking for thoughts or suggestions though. I have played with some styles as shown below.
