Greetings, LEGO builders

I spent a few hours today building the LEGO Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition set. It has 1363 pieces, and the model stands at a pretty impressive 25 cm tall. Here's the finished build:

Some reviewers have criticised the model's proportions, and they do seem to be a bit off, compared to the movie Hulkbuster. Regardless, I really liked building this set, and I'm happy with the result.

Any other LEGO fans in the Coffee Corner? Please share what you're building :-)

I only have this from my childhood on going with my kids after building this one and this other.

If i'll still have space at homw this will be the next one.

i prefer the old sets: less specific parts, more freedom to re-use the bricks :)

Pirates!

If they would bring back a well-done Western theme I could be really tempted. ^^

But pirates are great, too.

They made a new Pirate Set in 2015

Strangely enough, I've had no Lego growing up. I bought my first set like 3 years ago (I think, maybe it was already 4 years ago) and that was Ecto-1 with the 4 ghostbusters (the original one). Three days later (Friday > Monday) the Millenium Falcon followed and after that I kiiind of went a bit haywire. :D

I'm a big fan of the modular buildings, so I have quite a few of those, also Slave 1 and an AT-AT, the Cantina, the Tardis and oh yeah... the Bat Cave from that 60s show! And then a lot of small stuff, too, that I liked.
Even if it does not sound like it, I'm quite picky when it comes to buying new sets.

So if I would post my Lego stuff, I would flood your thread. ^^

But I could share my current "street", when I'm back home and can get a good photo of it. *g*

Please do!

So that's the current state. The space between the buildings or more what's going on there is still "work in progress" (until I have a good idea what to put there).

The Diner was the last set I bought. :)

Very nice! Thanks for posting the picture.

I think we all need that at work so we don't have to wait for the end of our working day ...

The prices for those "business sets" are crazy.

1 Share

Ok then the employer should buy it or every employee brings along some LEGO bricks ... :-) Could be a nice compilation and a good reason to get to know each other better.

Hi Morten,

cool idea by the way.....i´am (or my son :) ) are also big Lego fans.

The best set from my perspective was WALL-E, which we´ve created last christmas.

And yeah we pimped it up to control WALL-E via the Lego IR RC.

Additional we are big Star Wars fans and therefore the Millenium Falcon and the Imperial Star Destroyer still in place......and some more ;o)

cheers,

fabian

I can't find the original link, but while working with Papyrus, I found this impressive piece of LEGO tech via their website:

LEGO Car Factory (red car)

I love stuff like this.

LEGOs? Oh...you mean those things my sons leave strewn all over the floor, so I can a lacerate my heels when I step on the pieces.

I'm kidding.

Kinda.

LEGO contests are a common event at our SAP TechEd booth.

And there are LEGO prizes...some of which I really, REALLY want to keep for myself. (Oh, how I didn't want to let go...)

About those bricks on the floor, there's a solution for that. It was posted on April 1st, granted, but still... :-D

Ha! That's genius. Too bad it's a joke, they could make a fortune selling the real thing.

Ironic part is that in the picture you look so excited but the lucky recipient is like "meh". Honestly, if it wasn't for the post, I would've thought that you're the one receiving it. :)

In his defense, I'm pretty sure most community members have a "meh" expression when dealing with me. :)

So let's prove this wrong: I bet if you supply LEGO boxes to some of the participants of this serious discussion, you will get much better feedback!

Can't tell whether this will or will not make you feel like "meh".

I need to bribe people to like me?

I'm having high-school flashbacks...

I have the Yellow Submarine waiting to be built. But what I'd really love to do is something like this https://inhabitat.com/ecouterre/amazing-lego-mechanical-loom-weaves-actual-fabric-video/ only more complicated - it needs to be wider, have at least 4 shafts so that it could be programmed to weave twills or huck lace, and the warp yarns need to be set closer together to make this really useful. :)

I have 2 builders at home: my kid and husband who seems to be re-living his Lego-less childhood. :) We have at least 20 boxes, I think that have been opened and built (and now mostly scattered all over the place or turned into some other creations) and 7 that were initially bought for the gifts but apparently have been stored for so long by now that they're turning into "collector items". :)

Recently, my Thing 1 and Thing 2 made what they told me was a submarine from "Subnautica" game:

And 3 preserved builds have formed a weird "Lego centipede" on top of my husband's PC (the leftmost one is from Star Wars, the insect from some odd theme set that was on sale, and the big guy is from Bionicle series). :)

In my understanding, that's the real way to deal with LEGO: You buy some boxes and then re-combine the bricks to whatever your imagination invites you... – I started to play with LEGO even before those small LEGO people were introduced, so with way less specialized parts. Later I had some Technic sets. There's still a huge barrel with all those parts...

Compared to our boys who had their collections of LEGO City, Knights, Bionicles and the like, I always thought and still think that my childhood w.r.t. LEGO was "richer" simply because of less specialized parts and less need to "collect"and more need to use my own imagination.

Of course that's a feeling one can have in many aspects when comparing youth in the 70s/80s and now.

I agree that toys in our days were better for developing imagination, skills, etc. There are more choices these days but, unfortunately, too many toys that only do 1-2 things and leave nothing for the child to explore. Yet people buy them.

And here I thought that was a bulky laser gun! My mistake, of course it's a submarine, duh! :D

LOL, I learned from personal experience to ask first instead of exclaiming "oh, what a nice Portal gun!". :)

On top of a desktop PC is a great spot for a LEGO set :-) At the moment I have the LEGO Ideas Doctor Who set sitting there:

(With my apologies for the blurry picture.)

I have that one, too! But it's sharing a shelf with the series' DVDs. :)

Have to admit I've never watched a single episode but it's on my watchlist on Amazon Prime. "Desktop top" does look like a perfect location for Legos! :)

What!?

No Doctor? No RiverSong?

Such a BIG SHAME!

I'm still waiting for a LEGO Star Trek building set :(

That would be cool, for sure. In the meantime, check out these Star Trek builds :-)

In the past, my son and I liked to do stop-motion videos of small LEGO builds. Here are a couple we put up on YouTube:

I love LEGO stop-motions :-)

Yesterday I finally got around to building the Saturn V set. And what a set it is! Definitely one of the harder builds, and the result is very nice indeed. Here's the contents of the box and here's the finished build. That was the last big set, I had sitting around, but I do have my eye on that new LEGO Star Wars Y-Wing set...
