    Waiting for the news that a floor in the house has collapsed owing to too much weight in Lego.

    I was surprised to see a re-release of Gen Greivous' fighter in a Costco leaflet.

    8043 is my favourite set.
    When I was a child I dreamed to have a tracked excavator and you can't imagine how I was happy when they released it (even if I was not longer a child ) :lol:

    Lambo's Moc is amazing :eeek:
    Wouldn't be cheaper to buy a Chiron in order to make it?

    It's an incredible set. So much achieved in a relatively small model - very clever.
    Well, maybe, but only ~1/2 the parts are common. Overall, it's easier to buy it all separately as I won't have half a Chiron lying around afterwards! If I was set up as a seller, it could work out better.

    Meanwhile...

    Probably! Stained pine: Amazon linky

    Now I feel I should've bought some wood and a saw and done it myself...

    Yeah, look roughly scaffold board dimensions, I'm going to do some myself shortly :)

    Only worth the hassle if you have a table saw though trust me!

    I love the idea of all these big sets and would love to sit down and build something, but I could never justify buying one to build it once and have it sit on a shelf.
