    ^ Do you have 12 months no interest?  And what is your policy on Imperial entanglements?

    Ten thousand. All in advance. Or you can pay me two thousand now, plus fifteen when you reach Alderaan. No, wait, no more Alderaan...

    @560Heliport
    I have to ask- are you dismantling all these sets before you move on to the next theme?  Or do you have room after room filled with display cases? :-)

    @KungFuKenny I have a one bedroom apartment full of LEGO. I really need to dismantle a lot- but that's no fun. A lot of what I've been showing hasn't been built in years, so it's almost like building a new set!

    I'm going to bag sets separately as I dismantle them. I made the mistake once of putting all of my Pirate sets (just about everything from 1989 to 1996, all the big sets, only missing a few of the smallest ones) together in one box. Do you realize how many black plates, for instance, are in that many Pirates sets? The next time I wanted to build them, I sorted by color, then had to sort the black pieces into 1x whatever plates, 2 x whatever plates, 1 x whatever bricks, etc. because small black pieces are very hard to spot in the shadows of other pieces.

    Well, I finished up #21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay yesterday evening. I stretched it out as much as I could manage because I really wanted to enjoy all of it, so I'm a bit sad to have it come to an end. Truly a wonderful build just full of nostalgia from beginning to end. Thoroughly enjoyed the entire build!

    Up next will be the conversion into the full ship.

    A bounty hunter duo with a ship similar in the vein of Slave 1 I made for May the 4th and forgot to share here.

    Nice! in the landing position, it also resembles a YV-666

    I've been on a Technic kick for some time now & have taken to building existing sets with collection parts. Thx to trades w/ members @mak0137 , @hoodaddy (& others) I can build almost any existing set provided it's not too outlandish 😉 Sets like Tracked Loader, Fire Plane & #9398 4x4 Crawler really come in handy for necessary parts.

    So here are my versions of #42005 Monster Truck & #42095 RC Stunt Racer, which IMO was a considerable improvement over the 2017 RC Racer. Adding 1x1 round plates to the treads really helps with traction- I only just learned that technique while researching the model.

    but i feel bad for unboxing it.. the box is the best box art i ever seen.

    Revisiting my C8.  I was looking at photos more closely, the nose is quite similar to the FXX in set # 75882, so I took inspiration from that.

    I only have #9500-1 . not seeing it here. maybe it's not a TIE.
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 1,807
    It's technically not a TIE, it's from 4000 years before the Skywalker Saga, but it does resemble one. 
  • CharmiefcbCharmiefcb SydneyMember Posts: 298
    I bought two of the latest TIE Fighter and 2 of the latest X Wing for Red 5 and Red 3. Just waiting for them to do an updated TIE Advanced so I can do the last moments of the trench run.

    Another picture of my cat, Jack. Oh, and some LEGO TIE ships. I have Vader's TIE Fighter from #7150, but I don't know where. Same for #30276 F.O. Special Forces TIE Fighter.
    What? No #75095? Or did Jack make you move it? ;-)

    @Astrobricks The only UCS sets I have are #10236, #75060, and #75181. I prefer minifig-scale stuff, and those are at least close.

    and that will go up by 7 set's or so in the next 3 weeks (i dont mark as owned till it is in my hands).
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 1,807
    My set count is 2236, 2001 different. I got my first set, #560 Heliport, for Christmas 1974 and never had a Dark Age.

    Sets 327th, parts 1005th. But I have a lot of loise parts that aren't counted: dozens, maybe even 100 large PAB cups, and used loose parts from a dealer at an antique mall.

    Awesome @560Heliport! That really takes me back :)
    How many of the sets on that sheet do you own?

    But one problem - when I click on that #560 it doesn’t take me to the right set either ;-)

    Cool!

    So, were you a kid with OCD who kept a database of all his sets, or did you reconstruct it years later through instruction booklets and rebuilding sets?

    I have a lot of the old brochures/catalogs, so I know what sets I have, even when the instructions are long gone. (Stupid kid!) Brickset helped fill in the blanks.

    #75975 Watchpoint: Gibraltar
    Is done.

    added in my " #75970 Tracer vs. Widowmaker " to it, who i have had for over a year at this point (look's it up, i got it back on 15/02/2019)
    As you can see from the pic, i have moved the Tower to the left side, as the place i am going to display it, it would not fit if the tower was on the right side. as it is it only just fit's with it how i built it. (Rockit takes up more space then the tower)

    time spent building Watchpoint: Gibraltar is "2 hours 45 minutes".
    total time spent building set's from what i am now calling "Chrisalddin mad spedding spray." is "13 hours and 15 minutes."
