Preparing for Christmas's dislay
I've managed to resist all the Trolls sets so far other than Poppy's Carriage. There are some sets currently on my wishlist but they are low priority meaning must be at a greatly reduced price before I'll buy them. They do have some interesting parts in some sets which is why they ended up on my wishlist. I like the ones with the Pods & the boat one with the tent.
I have tomorrow and Wednesday off too. Trying to decide if I should build a mid-size SW set, a Hogwarts section, or DO or DD. A modular might be more than I want to do because I do have some actual housework to deal with as well.
Curious to hear what people's best set names are.
#6835 - US: Saucer Scout | UK: Zap 5
#6889 - US: Recon Robot | UK: Cybernetic Soboton
#6939 - US: Saucer Centurion | UK: Sovek
#6949 - US: Robo-Guardian | UK: Might Mogul
#6959 - US: Lunar Launch Site | UK: Station Xenolith 6
Some favorites that came up today were :
...ALL of which I would like to be made into real sets!
#6927 All-Terrain Vehicle
Bigger than i thought it would be - nice model and when i finally get the space lining up with the other similar sets will look great... now to find the space....
I shared an extra #75551 set with another AFOL so we could both build all 3 Minions. Only required about EUR 4 extra parts from B&P, mainly part 6303438, which is exclusive to this set in this colour.

Now I'm happy.
Everyone's different, I have a thing for Dark Green bricks so this was a no brainer for me.
After seeing someone post a picture of the "UCS" scale characters, I decided I needed to get them all (sans the original Yoda). I've just finished BLing the R2-D2 with a couple of part swaps, snagged D-O a few months ago, and am picking up The Child character today. Can't wait to have them all lined up!
I got the Rat and Pig as GWP, and when I finally got around to building them, I decided that I wanted the other three too. They are built using a combination of Spares, BL and BnP. I changed the eyes of the rat to make it slighlty less rat-like and more cartoony - plus it fits in better with the rest.
I recreated a couple more of Chris McVeigh’s Christmas themed Brick Sketches to plug this year’s Brickset Forum Secret Santa event...
This year’s European group has surpassed last year’s, and there is a lot of enthusiasm in the UK and NA also...There are only a couple of days left before the deadline, so head over to https://forum.brickset.com/discussion/33761/secret-santa-2020#latest to sign up!
#1687 Midnight Transport
This has to be one of the more theme-unique sets from Classic Town! I love the whole vibe and especially that black/red/yellow color scheme!
