What LEGO set did you build today?

Recommended Posts

One good thing came out of the California PG&E planned outages. I finally decided to open and build the MILF! After building most of bag 1, I've noticed a couple of things:

  1. The inner framework is solid. 
  2. I would hate to disassemble this. All the pins are great for stability but I would imagine they make it a PITA to disassemble.

I recently moved and this was the only set I partially disassembled.  I spent a couple hours each night for about a week putting it back together.  I have about 8 pieces left over.  They are going in a bag and will be stored in the Millennium Falcon.

Built the Hulkbuster that I received from Target during the sale a couple weeks ago.

As a MCU fan I like it, but I have to admit it isn't the best set. Exposed blue pins could have been covered easily and weren't, but even more than that it's wobbly and hard to get it to stand straight up (tends to lean slightly forward or back) which really upsets my OCD. I did think the stand was well done though. 

Please, give us a UCS Milano next

I think this mod helps with that issue: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-18601/Skecys/ucs-hulkbuster-mod/#comments

That time of year. Did these while watching a movie with my wife this morning. On the mantle around the Charlie Brown tree. Will do the train next weekend and run it around the (real) tree. Like to get it up before the family arrives for Thanksgiving.

70357 Knighton Castle

Pretty Dope build.  It's a castle so tons of re-play with it. Kids imagination is fun to watch.  I like attacking them with the rolling Purple and LBG evil guy.  Also, has a "spaceship" kind of thing, and micro-vehicle that fits inside the castle too.  

Overall, neat stuff. 8/10

You could easily modify Jason Allemann's build

For the love of Lego, A few friends and I popped the seals on an ADP Saloon last night.(as well as a beverage or two).  Shaping up to be a good build. As I've read somewhere before a nice bright light will aid a lot in this build. Those two brown colors and some placements can get tough on even the sharpest eye. These sets do feel like special edition sets, friends impressed with packaging and manual quality for sure.

Built the gwp tree and motorized my train last night. The tree is great, much nicer than the short fattie that comes with the toy shop. Train runs smooth when the cats are not smacking it off the rails.

Nice cases.  You don't happen to have a link to where you got those, do you?


Sure do. The site is awesome but unfortunately they are UK sooo shipping sucks, but I often wait and make bulk purchases if I want stuff. Good quality and good customer service!
