Awesome sets. I want the roller coaster also it’s an addiction. But tell me about this ship. It looks like a Disney cruise ship model? Did you build it? I like it

from thrilllost.com:
they have sharp corners and knobs. That will help aggravate all those nerve endings in your foot.

Finally, they have no give. While many toys might give when you step on them, LEGOs don't. A single brick can support 953 pounds of pressure before it compresses. That means when you step on a LEGO, the lack of give transfers all that force right back into the sole of your foot, rather than absorbing some of the force exerted on it.

The ship is made out of wood, not lego's. Yes, it is a Disney cruise ship.

I knew it wasn’t legos but was wondering if it was a kit that you built. It looks pretty big

It was hand-built, but not by me. I just made the display case for it. It's about 3 feet long.

Some of you might want to get in to this. Could make a pinball themed module.

#58 1 year ago

I saw this amazing new set at the LEGO Store last week. I think it may rival the Large Millenium Falcon set in size and pieces. Most impressive.

Son and I just started another one tonight, albeit not original LEGO, but quality is the same for sooooo much less ($55 vs $255)

That’s 4700 pieces. The big millennium falcon is 7500

My son got the VW Beetle Lego kit for Christmas and assembled it. I like how the roof-mounted cooler has Lego ice and soda/beer cans.....

I guess I'm not the only Lego freak. Awesome.

#64 1 year ago
Quoted from adol75:

I have the Millenium Falcon, the big collector one they re released. 7500 pieces, pricy but that thing is as incredible to build as it is to watch.
Too bad my son decided that Darth Vader threw a giant bomb in it so it exploded in a million pieces ! Its back in its box Ill wait for my son to go to College and build it again.

Should have hung it from ceiling as soon as you finished it! I saw this was available but whew $800.

#65 1 year ago

It isn’t LEGO but this is a very challenging one. I got it for Christmas last year and am not sure what other themes they do. All I can say is it’s intense just because of the size of the pieces compared to the same legos. I have to use tweezers sometimes to set the singles.

My LEGO room. We also have at least 1 build in every room of the house.

It was worth every cent, but yes I should have thought twice before leaving it on the table. The model is absolutely gorgeous, ultra detailed and unlike the first one it has a life under the hood. They pushed the level of detail to adding changeable pieces to match the different versions of the MF in the movies.

It’s not cheap although from a number of pieces to price ratio it’s on the low end in the Lego world.

In my attic is a huge stash, being saved for the rugrat who built them all who is now grown. Star Wars, Harry Potter (with train), pirates, and I can’t even remember what else. Plus all the Bionicle there is. Someday I’ll pull it down.

Meanwhile here is one I did for myself.

I ran out of room for Lego in the house so I had a tough shed built and finished with insulation, drywall, HVAC and electric for more LEGO.

Nope - I don’t have a problem.

#77 1 year ago

I’ll just leave this here

Lets just say I'm 50 something.
I've been doing Lego for at least 45 of it.
I still have a fort I built when there was only 4 colors from early 70's something.
Red white and blue fort it is.

Only thing on my Christmas list this year was:

And I’m nearly 40!
No way could I get away with adding NIB pinball on there...

#80 1 year ago

Im into Lego technics, got more models than this in the house. Its really fun building them and study how they solve different mechanical problems using lego. Also the kids like to drive around the with the remote controlled machines.

Man posts to forum full of adult men who own pinball machines that interest in Legos might be silly.

The black shelves; details please. I’m looking for something like that to put the modular buildings on.

Please and thanks.

Looks better than the real new Defender.

I secretly buy legos for my kids at Christmas so I can help them build the sets and have fun at the same time. It's a win win. Currently building the treehouse. Next up will be the Mack Anthem Technic set.

Those appear to be just standard slotted channel iron and shelving from Home Depot/Lowes etc. Different length supports are available for different width shelving. For our mad scientist lab I bought and stained some wood a dark brown. I like how he has the different elevations -
Since these don't weigh a ton, floating shelves would be an option too - they come in all different lengths and colors - we have a few in the game room bathroom.

There was a LEGO pinball machine in the lobby at EXPO - can't find the pic -

Lego exhibit just finished up last week at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI - co-worker said it was amazing.

I never thought of it that way. I guess boys will never forget their toys.

I call this 'freestyling'! Making random things from a 'set'!

I have my original Lego sets from the mid 70's. Great to get ones creative juices flowing!

When my daughter was younger- we built things for hours! Now theyre in storage again, hopefully to be used by the next generation.

Now there will be a show on freestyle building!

And a belated Christmas present from my wife arrived today after getting held up in customs..

IMG_5669 (resized).jpg

I also have a load that I've built but have had to take apart and put back in the box as I have nowhere to display them, including the Rollercoaster, Simpsons House, Haunted House, Pet Shop etc etc. If I didn't have a pinball room I'd have a Lego room!

I made this lego castle when I was a kid.

We didn't have as many bricks to choose from.

We just watched the one season of the australian version of this that exists. They made some pretty amazing stuff.

There have also been two seasons of an English version shown in the UK. Worth checking out if you can find them.

It was more fun then. You'd build something, break it down and build something again...and again. Now it's buy a kit, build following directions and never touch it again.

I sold half my Lego collection to buy my first pin, MMR, a couple years ago.

I kept the cool half, I'll take some pictures if I have time.

#98 1 year ago
Quoted from Slim64:

That's a badass set!
My cousin had one growing up, I looked into getting one for myself a couple years ago. The price quickly changed my mind

It wasn't too bad. I ordered a set from eBay that was listed as "incomplete" but seemed to have most of the larger pieces. I want to say it was $75. I sorted everything and placed and then placed a few orders from Bricklink to make it complete. I am still missing some of the authentic sails, but I was able to buy some matching fabric to create my own set.

#99 1 year ago

we have been collecting lego for years, building and hoarding when we find sets half off. some of the sets bring some crazy money after sitting on them a few years. some of the mini figs go way up in value. i have every mini fig from every series CMF released, except MR gold.

#100 1 year ago

Oh yeah, I got a few of those too! Ha. Anyone need anything? I sold a bunch at Christmas, the problem is, I can't help buying a bunch when they're on sale and/or if they're too cool to resist. Had to have that Flintstones one. I really liked the LoTR sets, have the whole series, including Tower of Orthanc.
