    I've seen that one quite a bit in my area... both Walmart and Fred Meyer (our version of Kroger) had it at one point, and I think I maybe saw it at Target too.

    I WANT SMALLER HANDS!!! Well what would be nifty would be some way to shrink my fingers some of the time ... am going half crazy building #80024 Legendary Fruit & Flower Mtn. I am maybe 1/2 to 2/3 of the way through and my stupid fat fingers keep knocking bits off!!
    Lol ya I have had some issues fitting my fingers into some parts of builds where something came loose or fell off... That's the bonus of being a dad.. Child labour! My son's hands are way smaller and he takes payment in candy! 

    Unfortunately my grown children and their children are on the other side of the continent! Finally got thed mountain finished and have started on #71741 Ninjago City Gardens. Still could use access to smaller hands but am loving this build so far. Some tedious bits but broken up with periods of really interesting stuff.

    That stand has taken that model from something with very little appeal to something with a great deal of appeal to me. I may need try try and secure a copy now.

    2x 2x2 round brick with axle hole
    1x 32105 angle element 112.5
    6x 32062 2m axle
    3x 59443 cross axle extension
    1x 32192 angle element 135
    That lot makes the arm section with a round brick top and bottom. Then I took the pair of 8x6 plates out of the base and moved the curved ends together. The lower round brick fixes into the base and then I built plates to cover the gap including a 2x4 Technic plate with holes to allow the axle going into the round brick through.
    I know Huw took the plates off the bottom of his stand to make it shallower, but I kept them for added rigidity. I can take some photos tomorrow

    Happy with Lego.com! Ordered the Medieval Blacksmith on Sunday and it arrived at my home on Wednesday with Amelia.. Now I haven't been home since Christmas so I am not sure when I can go home to actually build it.. Right now it looks like I should be able to return home around August..... But I feel so good knowing I got that set and it is safe at home waiting for me.. Black Knights are almost as cool as Forestmen!

    Finally finished #71741 Ninjago City Gardens ... a terrific build! Lots of fun detail and interesting uses of various parts. Even though it is one of the pricier sets I really recommend it as a great build ... but not for a beginner!

    The set I built before #71741 Ninjago City Gardens was #80024 Legendary Fruit & Flower Mountain which was okay, I liked the build but it simply does not compare to the Gardens!

    Today (my lego time) will hopefully be spent with the last of my shelf-clearing for a while. The last few days I've spent at least an hour or two each day disassembling sets, dusting, and rearranging some sets on display and in storage. I now have a 45" wall shelf with absolutely nothing on it and a couple smaller spots I can put some things I have yet to build. I have one more similar length shelf in a glass-door bookcase that I need to clear some smaller bits off.

    Once all of that is done, I will finally have space for some Diagon Alley and/or some Hogwarts sets. I do also have a Grand Emporium to build at some point, and some modulars to rearrange... That's why it might be DA or Hogwarts. I might have to keep the bookcase shelf for modulars. Decisions!!

    Just finished the 911 Turbo Targa (or Targa Turbo?):


    One needs 7 parts to finish it off which are not included in the set (it's intended to build either the Targa OR the Turbo):
    2 more of the 68568, Plate, Round Corner 3 x 3 with 2 x 2 Cutout, Black
    2 more of the 27295, Tile, Round Corner 2 x 2 Macaroni, black
    3 more of the 241226, Tile, Modified 1 x 2 Grille with Bottom Groove / Lip
    and 1 1x6 tile, White

    For the 68568's, I used the ones from the spoiler in the roof, the 27295's I replaced with Dark Red one from my stash, and the 1x6 I took from the windscreen and replaced, together with the 2 1x1 tiles, white with a 1x8 (one could use spare 1x4's from the set, but I had my Tiles-stash out). The 3 241226's I took from my stash too, plenty there.
    BL order for the 68568's, 27295's and one 1x6 tile already out.
    I'd say Lego could have thrown these in, just for fun, but okay.

    Was a great build, some awesome techniques in the car, just a joy to put together.

    Oh, and just ordered a new cabinet for our living room, which I can use to display some of my sets! Joy!

    Celebrating hitting my weight loss goal by finally getting to build the Ghostbusters HQ. It was a really nice build and I love all the little details that they put in. Just need Lego to make a Stay Puff man now to go with it.

    Brent Waller’s version is available- I think the instructions (or at least LDD file) might even be free...

    I just found out that my Los Angeles-class submarine is listed on Vonado. Wonderful. The best part is, I had multiple people from China purchase the instructions, so I don't even know which account to report (not that it would do any good, but it would give me some satisfaction).
    On the bright side, I released another small Minecraft MOC on Rebrickable today.

    Pleased to open this today. Going to try the @Huw mod to the stand of the plane.

    Bit of set shuffling. The Blacksmith Shop is coming up from the kitchen where its sat for a few weeks to occupy my old tiny build table. I'm planning to build a bit more grassy areas around it on a baseplate so the wagon has somewhere to go. For that to happen my Scooby Doo mansion that I built a court yard scene for has been removed from its diorama and will go up on the top shelf in the corner. The Shell Ferrari collections have been boxed up.

    These came out in 2012 and 2014. Pullback cars with a couple of buildings. The second series I managed to gather a full set in under two weeks. I was running three cars at the time, so a tank full for each one, then we took a trip out in a friends 911 to get two more and the final one arrived thanks to fill up in another friends 1964 Alvis TE21

    As for my own Lego status: #21326 Winnie the Pooh is turning up tomorrow. I got round to building a few Lego Minecraft backlog sets, #21168 The Warped Forest (which goes rather well with another of @veyniac's MOCs) and #21166 The 'Abandoned' Mine, while I still have #10281 Bonsai Tree to do, but I am going to save that.

    I also completed @BenBuildsLego's 3 Star Wars OT Skyline sets, so I really must take some half-decent pics of those to show off here. I did post pics of the first two a while ago, but will add pics of the third. They really are excellent. :-)

    Oh, I also put together @JKBrickworks' MOD of the #31088 Deep Sea Creatures set, which animates the shark. I *really* enjoyed putting that together and really need to get into more "animated" Lego of various types.

    I am glad that I have such a dedicated fan, @JudgeChuck! I will try to hold off on the Minecraft MOCs, at least for a little while :)
    The final bricklink order for the MOCS I am planning to donate came in today, so I spent the evening compiling the parts for The Crimson Forest. In order to make it easy to double- and triple-check that all the parts were present and accounted for, I decided to try my hand at knolling:
    Here is the final product:
    I had a lot of fun putting the kit together, and I almost wish I could find an excuse to do it more often. Almost. (the ppp on bricklink orders makes me wince every time).

    My lego status today is vastly conflicted... I ordered the medieval blacksmith and am super pumped but I have not actually bought much lego in the past few months so my lego budget is pretty good in my opinion so the question is what should I order? I am stuck between 2 plans;

    1. Disney castle, another medieval blacksmith and barracudas bay. (this would be good as all these sets are rarer and awesome!)

    2. Mos Eisley Cantina, Two AT-AT's, Two new X-wings, Two new  Tie fighters. (this would allow me to finish my hoth base which has great rebel presence but weak imperial attack, plus the cantina is just awesome)

    Which brings me to the other problem, order all at once or wait for new give aways and order in groups to maximize free stuff? Which then leaves me with the last problem, order it to my home where my wife will see it all and yell at me or order it to my military base where I I desperately need something to do but have very limited space and will have sergeants yell at me on inspections over lego in my locker.... Oh decisions...

    Hehe, no, please continue! :-)

    Actually, I am having problems getting the parts for your End City together. For some odd reason, part number 3700 Technic, Brick 1 x 2 with Hole in Medium Lavender just cannot be bought in the UK! EU, yes! US, yes! UK? 1 seller has 1 part! I'll probably have to bite the bullet at some point and risk customs fees from Europe / US.
    Apparently, the part only came in 1 Dimensions set, #71346 Team Pack - The Powerpuff Girls, which might explain matters somewhat.
    I would love to know how one seller in the US has 2,384 of them though! Surely he didn't buy that many Powerpuff Girls sets? ;-)

  • MarshallmarioMarshallmario Madison WIMember Posts: 291
    @EGRoberts decisions, decisions. I would go with list #1 with the Disney castle, Baracuda Bay, Blacksmith as the are supposed to be awesome builds. Send them home, too big for your locker.
    Order them separately to maximize GWP’s. Order a small Tie Fighter, X-Wing for base delivery for something to do...
    So who yells louder; the Sargent or your wife?

    I tend to do Minecraft MOCs when I am suffering from "builder's block" and cannot think of anything better to make, as they are pretty easy to do no matter how uninspired I am feeling. Hopefully I won't have to do another one for a while, but don't worry, I will continue doing them eventually. I have already redesigned the Magma Cube from #21130 to be an actual cube in preparation for a future basalt delta model.
    I would love to know how one seller in the US has 2,384 of them though! Surely he didn't buy that many Powerpuff Girls sets? ;-)
    The part was probably briefly available on either BnP or LUGbulk.

    I appreciate the input, my mind keeps flipping but I really do like the look of that pirate ship and the disney castle looks like a great build that my  son and I could turn into the seige of  life time.. 

    You know it is not how loud they yell, it is the guilt I feel because I know I have a problem.. "My name is Evan, it has been 3 days since I last bought some bricks." lego anonymous, is that a thing yet?

    When deciding between two or three sets, the most important things are to remember to check the price/piece ratio, make sure you have proper storage/display space, consider which might be going EOL soonest and then buy all three sets.
    Three copies of each set you mean. One to build, one to keep and one to trade or MOC with!

    Mine was a phased approach.  I didn’t want to apply too much undue pressure to start or set folks to stumble right out of the gate should their significant other be monitoring.
