Really really enjoyed that (WELL worth the £109 paid, thank you Amazon). Being a Land Rover, how soon before it breaks?



Next up. A non Technic one cool

You don't hang about with these do you? I tend to spread the build over a week. I'm tempted to strip mine down at some point and rebuild it into the stadium truck.

Mine take me ages to build.

Between finding time to do.it, I seem to.ejoy doing a bag at a time then stopping until the next time. Rough terrain crane took me a few weeks!

Even the lunar lander took me 7/8 days.

Looks like they've finished building the lego Discovery Centre and shop near me, and now it's just a case of waiting until they're allowed to open. Anyone know if they tend to go for big launch events with lots of discounts?
Shop looks pretty well stocked from a peer through the window.

Are you aware there’s a Lego shop in delft with a pretty decent selection? Also our local toy shop tends to have very competitive prices.

Toy shop here tends to have to pretty good prices too, just wondering if it's worth keeping an eye out for the grand opening in Scheveningen.

It's by the guy that designed the original. He's since refined it to a v2 design.

Toy shops are still a thing?

The toy/model shop in my local towns closed years ago.
There used to be a decent one in Truro, but I think it closed a couple of years ago.

A quick google shows that there's a "The Entertainer" in Truro now. No idea what they sell though.

There used to be two really good model shops in Plymouth, one of which specialised in diecast. Both gone I think.

Toy shops do still exisit. If anything they are even more nerdy than they were.
Edinburgh has a brilliant model toy shop called Wonderland. You can buy everything from Lego through to minature steam engines that work.

The Entertainer is ok for kids toys
Hobbycraft usually have a good airfix type model section and good paint stocks

I'm not in the UK, we don't have the massive supermarkets that stock everything here so there's a bit more space for other shops. There's a chain (Intertoys) and an independent toy shop near me.

So just started on Lego 60141 & finished Lego 60287.

Enjoyed the 60287 very much, the 60141 so far is a bit fiddly for my skill set on stickers......



Talking Bugatti v Sian am I right in thinking the Sian has no stickers they are pre printed on the bricks?

God, even your Lego posts are annoying. Expecting everyone to know model numbers off by heart, to have a hope of understanding what you're talking about.

Correct, there are no stickers with the Sian, everything is printed.

Glad it wasn't just me thinking that..!

Not to mention that - having actually just checked those set numbers - neither of them are Technics!

Oh come on wink.

We’re all nerds to be fair - some more than others. I’ll wager someone might have known

Just finished another stop motion build.
This time the Stunt Truck and Bike.
Quite a nice build for the money.
Also built the Hedwig for a friend. Now that was a fiddly build!
The movement on the wings is very clever though. Also, due to the pieces being quite soft fit, if dropped it would probably self deconstruct quite easily for packing away.
