<something thoroughly inappropriate> On!?

I laughed too, but I maintained equilibrium. I managed to stay on my chair. Actually, it is a stool. However, Stauder I think maybe it is time to consider in-home-care... :-/

I once knew a man with a wooden leg named Smith, but for the life of me I can't remember the name of his other leg.

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

Ok. This is somewhat fun to read, but I cannot see why it's here in the "General news section" - shouldn't this kind of post be in the community where babble threads belong?

:-D A lot of threads I touch turn into babble threads. :-$

I thought the same thing when I first read this thread, after all Sinner and I are not made out of LEGO. But it's been here for a few days so I guess they thought this was an okay place for it.

Probably, but it could also stay, because a lot of the interview is about Hinckley's collection.

Sinner do show us your colection.
...and 12 days later I oblige... :-$  Sorry I have been busy.  *wacko*

Going anti-clockwise around the room. (If you want clockwise start at the bottom.)

Posted Image
Part of Sinnerton (including my unfinished ferris wheel) and shelves full of MOCs and sets. Below Sinnerton is boring non-Lego stuff. I hope to soon find another home for it all so then I have an excuse to buy more Lego! *sweet*

Posted Image
Close up of the shelves.  I got it for free from HMAS Perth when it decommissioned and it is very heavy. I used to use it for a fish tank that covered the entire top. I now hope to turn it into a space display. (More for general MOCs than Star Wars MOCs/sets.)

Posted Image
My supposed Lego workbench. I take photos in the area to the left. The ice cream tubs are full of half finished projects and/or sorted Lego. Below is more of the same as well as my sorting bin.

Posted Image
My supposed programming workbench with my under-sea theme sets and MOCs on top. Many of these will fall in the sorting bin soon.  :'-(

Posted Image
Since this room is officially for work  :-$ I have a router, printers and a file server in here for work purposes. I do try to disguise it though.  :-P The second shelf with the white folders is where I keep my instructions. (The Viking longboat has been modded slightly so there are ten rowers.)

Posted Image
Most of my Technic sets including the  *wub*  *wub* Bulldozer. *wub*  *wub* The crane is slightly modded so it has a Technic man in the crane cab. I did it when I only had that set so it was hard. I should try and improve it now... 8-| Behind Sinnerton you can see some of my Lego boxes. After much resistance I flatened most of them. I can see myself being forced :'-(  to throw them out soon.

Posted Image
Ahghghhhhhhhghh!  *sing*  The martians are attacking Sinnerton! I made this about a year ago but it is still unfinished.

Posted Image
Another Sinnerton shot. For the curious the blue is just cardboard. When I made this layout I wanted to have a dockyard as well as the trains. I made a wharehouse but I broke it when I bought the train station as everything needed to be moved and there just wasn't room for it. The problem with that was I made the wharehouse as a justification to buy the container stacker and now I simply don't have a big enough dockyard for it.   :'-(

Posted Image
To finish, another Sinnerton photo. The red building is a Cafe corner rip off that took too many of my good pieces to do the bottom, leaving little for the top. In short, I don't like it so it will probably be trashed. It does give something for my workmen to do though.  :-D I was forced to modify my train station platform with rounded edges as otherwise there was no room for it. Other than that it unchanged. You can also see the motor for my Ferris Wheel. It works surprisingly well, but since I didn't have enough pieces for a second wheel it made the car design too hard. Failures, failures, failures whereever I look!  :'-(

Well that's it. Feel free to ask any questions or for more detailed photos, and sorry again Stauder for taking so long.

Great layout! Thanks for sharing. My mission is to de-LEGO my computer desk :-D and it looks very much like what you have going on there. I love the dragon on the printer. There are whacker and walrus sets on my scanner at all times! :-P

Great setup! I like everything but that Cafe Corner knockoff (knock it off!) >:-) Actually, I think it would serve well as a wild west hotel with some modification. Might be a way to save it. I could use some of those red railings.

It's amazing to look at the corner of the layout in that first shot where the new Creator house sits next to the old 80's (?) yellow house and realise just how the LEGO view of a house has changed through the years. As much as I like the big one, I miss the simplicity of the old type.

Oh, and a girls bucket *wub* What were they thinking making those for such a short time?

All in all, a fascinating look into the inner LEGO sanctum of everyone's favourite starship cargo ship engineer and walrus. Hey... I don't see a single walrus in there.  :-( I stand corrected, there he is welcoming Hinckley and Jocko to town, very nice indeed!

I looked closer! And I learned that you can strike out a smiley, who knew?

This is turning into dueling edits!

As for being eaten by a dinosaur ... ;-)

I try, but generally fail.  :-$ You can see at least two loose pieces there, and that poly bag near the cup is 7602.

That would be cool! I keep a sledge hammer near my door for strange visitors. I promise to not strike first if you turn up.  :-P

I haven't given up on it yet. My original idea was to make a Lego shop.

I love that little house. Mine is not quite complete unfortuantly. I too semi want a return to the old days as I could then make a more compact layout. But ultimately you can still make things the old way if you choose.

I though I would be subtle! Here's a better shot of where they live at the moment. Jocko bought some new pants as his old ones were too cold!  :-D
