    ^ Is that #76139?

    Indeed it is #76139, the 1989 Batmobile. I just paid a princely sum of $75 for it secondhand, so I have no problem solving the giant evil puzzle.

    Factory sealed, this set comes in 24 numbered bags, easy peasy.

    Secondhand, it came in three big freezer bags.

    It’s like a giant evil puzzle.
    I’m planning to disassemble mine maybe next weekend or after Thanksgiving. I doubt I will have the patience to break it down reverse bag at a time, but I was at least planning to keep different sections together, with the entire technic frame in its own bag(s).

    That turntable will definitely come in handy when you need to move it. I’m always afraid of the integrity of the 32x32 baseplates once they have the weight of a tall structure on them. 
    It definitely does. I finished my rebuild of #76178 Daily Bugle and then moved it across the room using the turntable. Had to then holler for hubby as my third hand so he could pull the turntable out from underneath while I steadied the building. I have had a few spectacular crashes when I relied on the baseplate!

    I've had that exact turntable in my wishlist for a while @GrannyLEGO. I'm going to have to click buy on it soon!

    Well that was a lot more work than it should have been, but it’s the most satisfying set I’ve ever built.

    @WesterBricks Just looking at this picture makes me want to rebuild mine, it really is an awesome set!

    Probably corners like a supertanker though ;-)

    It would be a disaster in San Francisco as well... Or Atlanta. Or really any city with even the slightest bit of hills. Or potholes. Or speed bumps. Well, you get the idea.

    But it looks bad-ice, and that's all that really matters.

    I'm partial to the Agents sets, but I do like the SP3 minifigures as well.

    @pxchris Classic Town sets are only second to Classic Space in my heart…now you need the RV and boat that come with #6388 Holiday Home!

    You're a bad influence on me.

    And I have to say that Brick Daddy (with his purple suit and gold chain) is one of the coolest villains I have in my collection.
    Undoubtedly one of the coolest SP minifigs!

    Didn't even mention one of the coolest parts of the minifig either!  If you thought that his head looked a little weird color wise, you'd be right... because it glows in the dark!

    Now up to step 475. First time I have made progress in a number of weeks,  maybe months!

    An unusual one maybe - I've been building a Windows 98 PC so I can play Lego Island, Legoland and all sorts of other old games I'd nearly forgotten about from my childhood.

    I was inspired by the Bits n Bricks podcast that Lego have been producing for the past year or so which charts the history of Lego video games over the past 25 years. I'm sure it's been discussed elsewhere on the forum but I strongly recommend it. It's a really interesting insight not only into the making of the video games, but also corporate strategy etc at TLG around video games, multimedia products and other non-brick/brick-adjacent products and how Lego was looking to position themselves in the market going into the 21st century. Fascinating stuff.

    If I have to give an example of something in real bricks, I tracked down a copy of #7964 a couple of months ago. I lusted over that a decade ago but could never afford it, and I had a blast putting that together. I even pulled all my brother's clone troopers out of my parents' loft to display with it!

    I spent a few hours on Saturday filling in the contents of my latest modular building moc.  I think I am missing the mark a bit, as I think this is not as recognizable as I want it to be. 


    Can anyone recognize what type of business is going on here?

    ^ Meth Lab? I’d guess a Brewery or a work shop as the guy in the back is in front of an extractor unit

    ^^ It’s obviously an American all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant.

    The product looks like Heisenberg’s “blue sky” meth, but the lack of safety gear/respirators has me second guessing…

    You are so right, I do need to get the proper minifigs...

    Quick question: when I want to quote someone the cursor in my draft post always stays in the grey area of the quote. How do I get my cursor under the quote??

    You might have deleted the spacing outside the quote since you can usually click the white space you've highlighted or press the down or right arrows when you're at the end of the quote.
    If you have, then press the "</>" icon above the comment box to Toggle the HTML, then you can type below or after where it says </blockquote>. After that, you can toggle off HTML view again with the same button to view it normally.

    I put together #40449 Santa's Sleigh last night. A very satisfying build that fits nicely into the Winter Village!

    I am already predicting the loss of several of the presents due to my kids.

    I like @vizzitor’s answer, but I’ve always dealt with it by NEVER clicking in the quote area until after I’m done adding text below it. As long as I always start below the quote I’ve not had a problem getting there.

    Finished this two year long project last night... wanting to build a Lego ED-209 was the instigator for getting out of my dark ages something like 8 years ago, but only really dove in at the end of 2019. Didn't realise how involved I was going to get with it... it's been an epic journey! 


    Thats awesome. Watched Robocop last night and I say its a great replica. Are those lipstick missiles?

    Thanks! And well spotted, they are indeed lipstick :-)
    Also used roller skates on the front middle of the guns

    My builds are boring, but I started on my road MILs last night.  I'm using the new road plates plus some plates built SNOT to make the roads a little wider.  I got 8 started and then realized I don't have the 6x8 plates I need for the sidewalks on each side.  I'm not happy with how the crosswalks look, so gotta play around with them.  I might end up brick building them instead of using the new plates.

    They had one on the front page comparing those two sets and the new ISD that was pretty good, but I like this one better because it ALSO has some sense of scale from the set of drawers/picture frames they're sitting on.  It's a good reminder of just how enormous both these sets are.
