    PAB Cups: What Did You Get?

    As the crow flies, probably yes! Actually, maybe Liverpool...

    PAB Cups: What Did You Get?

    Wait, let me check...oh yes, we don't have any Lego stores in Ireland at all. So your glass should be half full (if not your PAB cup)! πŸ˜†

    At a quick glance, it looks lovely!

    LEGO IDEAS 21326 - Winnie the Pooh

    The two books, 'Winnie The Pooh' and 'The House at Pooh Corner' are two of the best written (and illustrated) stories that any person of any age will ever read. And Rabbit is much more important than Kanga and Roo, in the overall scheme of things. And Owl and Eeyore rank ahead of Kanga, Roo and Tigger in story importance too. Not that it really matters. It's like choosing between your children. All wonderful. πŸ™‚

    [MOC] Mr Moon

    Very cool. Looks like the design for some classic, stop motion children's television programme. The construction of the Moon itself just looks really nice.

    [MOC] Building Pink Floyd

    Thanks all. πŸ™‚ Most (or all) of the credit goes to the late graphic designer Storm Thorgerson for coming up with the majority of these iconic images in the first place.
  7. Hi All, I have posted some of these here before, but I thought I'd post the full set as things now stand. This consists of all the Pink Floyd studio albums, and other assorted items. They were physically built, and then had somewhere between a lot or no post-processing to try and match the original design. The Early Years 1. The Piper at The Gates of Dawn 2. A Saucerful of Secrets 3. More 4. Ummagumma 5. Atom Heart Mother 6. Meddle 7. Obscured by Clouds Extras 8. 'Kew Gardens' 9. 'Wrapped in Pink' 10. Relics 11. Pompeii The Middle Years 12.

  8. That is so cute, and provided with a comprehensive and believable story of nonsense behind it.

    [MOC] Scenes

    These are lovely! In the crime story one, is that a chalk outline on the ground, where the body was? Brilliant. And the bear at the end of the ski-slope is hilarious. Bears have to eat too I suppose...or maybe he just wants a go on the skis?

    BonsaΓ― - Diving board

    Beautiful shapes and colours, like all your models. The pool and floor give me an Art Deco feel, somehow. Great work.

    [MOC] Album Covers

    Thanks a mil. Taking the photos is somewhere between ok and a nightmare. Does anyone enjoy photographing Lego? I usually do it in the garden. But trying to get the shadows and so on to work is often harder than making the models!
  13. Many congratulations to the designer. I'm not sure how much fun this will be to build though, depending on how they do it. From having made mocs in this bas-relief style, I can say that they can be a bit tedious to build because you're not really achieving much as you go (like, ok I've finished a room now, or I've finished a spaceship wing). You're just piecing endless random coloured bricks together. You get a nice end result though. Will the final model have fewer studs showing? Or is that deliberate to look post-impressionistic?
  14. I don't know if my opinions are based on fact..but I'll give them anyway! I agree that it feels like Star Wars 'system' sets are getting smaller (probably with improved design standards) and more expensive for what you get. Whereas a few years ago there were lots of creative sets like Jabba's Palace and the 2015 Tyderium that people of all ages could enjoy, it's my belief that Lego have started to aim the 'system' sets very much at children (who are probably quite happy with them). For adults, Lego is a growing luxury market, and they have decided that if you like Lego you can jolly well pay for it, so they are pushing you towards the Cantina, Ninjago City Gardens, The Collosseum etc. It is a pity that there remains a gap in creativity in the Star Wars line though. Where is a new Bounty Hunter pursuit with Zam Wessell or some nice Endor sets or a Wampa, or Kamino...
