...and the Lambo's been bought.
Waiting for the news that a floor in the house has collapsed owing to too much weight in Lego.
He'll just rebuild it... in Lego.
Shelves are up:
He's already got the equipment...
Brief update: Death Star pieces have all arrived, and since they're all laid out on the table...
I may as well build it.
Not quite operational just yet:
A few deliveries for the Hoth base defence and Millennium Falcon have turned up.
In other Lego news:
Lego may or may not be releasing the Star Wars Cloud City Vader vs Luke scene set 75294:
It's rumoured the largest Lego set ever (9000+ pieces) is going to release in November, the 10276 Colosseum.
I quite like the cloud city diorama, and will pick it up if I can....
And the more interesting rumours for me are the UCS style Ecto-1 and the Looney Tunes CMF series...
I was surprised to see a re-release of Gen Greivous' fighter in a Costco leaflet.
Ahh it's so cute
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 )
Lambo's Moc is amazing
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.
I like those shelves, stained scaffolding boards?
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 like big, ridiculous Lego sets as much as the next guy, but does anyone else think it's starting to get a little out of hand?
The frequency with which they're spamming out mega-sets seems to have really ramped up in the last few years, to such a point that things like this barely register as interesting, let alone news, for 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.
