  1. Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    Just stumbled on this thread; really handy for the heads-up on what is currently available from B&P without havlng to do the long trawl through set and element numbers! One question though: I thought stuff like Nexo Knights wasn't considered licensed as it is an in-house theme. Likewise the new animal moulds; does TLG treat them same as licensed or are they just added here in this thread for convenience?
  2. [MOC] Plant Monster Invasion

    Actually, I have hi-res images but don't know how to upload them properly. If I try to add something with the "choose files" option, I'm told max allowed is 40.96kb. Any suggestions? What am I doing wrong?
  3. [MOC]Modular Triumphal Arch

    Indeed, a great idea for joining disparate sections of modulars and side-streets!
  4. [MOC] Plant Monster Invasion

    Evil, alien plant monsters have erupted from the streets in the centre of town! Minifigures run in terror as maelevolent vines and tendrils burst through windows and invade buildings! But never fear, our trusty friends, the DC Superheros, are rushing to the rescue! Many elements came together (literally!) to form this ensemble work. Architecture, organic forms, pop culture, high drama and humour are combined in a fun way to make you smile and, hopefully, with enough detail to keep you looking for a long while. It is meant to be viewed from all sides, so to get lots more detail, please go to my gallery and click on the folder option on the left-hand side of the page: http://janetvand.deviantart.com/gallery/ The entire display is comprised of 19,941 pieces and took just under three months to build. It is making its debut at the BRICK Live show in London next week. Credit for the minifigure placement and various superhero scenarios goes to my son, Faolán, whose attention to detail and quirky sense of humour brought the finished model to life.
  5. On behalf of my daughter and myself, I wanted to say thanks for another great event! It's a pity I had to leave early and miss some of the contests, etc.,but I hear it was all good fun, I'll see you all in Billund next year!
  6. Eurobricks Event 2017 trading post

    Two Green Arrows now held for you! We can sort out later, either a trade or a reasonable price based on average bricklink minus a bit.
  7. Sorry, change of mind about the ticket for my daughter; she reminded me that she'll be going to Billund in September, so I'll get a Merlin pass for her as it will work out cheaper in the long run. Thanks anyway, and the notifications about posts is really helpful, I agree!
  8. I'll have an annual pass, but a ticket for my daughter would be much appreciated, thanks, Holodoc!
  9. [MOC] Jurassic Brick

    Thanks, everyone, for all the positive feedback. It means a lot!
  10. [MOC] Santiago de Compostela Cathedral

    Thanks, everyone for all the positive feedback! (And no, I didn't get much sleep during those eight days... they passed in a bit of a blur, actually!)
  11. Procrastination Thread

    I'm sitting here on a wet Sunday morning, should be outside tending to my dairy goats but have put it off for an hour since its so nasty outside,,,, a cup of tea beckons. Shoud be starting my next big MOC (planned to start it last month) but wondering if I should put it off for a bit more and enter the mini modular competition instead.... found this thread while idling; it suited my mood perfectly!

    Capitol Building for me, too, please, if there's any left! What a great price!
  13. Built as a set of commissioned works for Warren Elsmore's book Brick by Brick Dinosaurs and his tour Brick Dinos , this series of dinosaur dioramas is the culmination of six months of hard work, late nights, lots of research and loads of fun! Each dinosaur has been designed as accurately as possible and has been placed in a setting suitable to its environment and era. (I call my collection "Jurassic Brick" as a whim, since I am well aware that many of the creatures actually lived during the Cretaceous period!) Anyone interested in building these dinos should get a copy of Warren Elsmore's book. Warren did a brilliant job creating clear, step-by-step instructions which turn my rather complicated models into something readers can confidently build at home themselves. I really enjoyed designing this series of dinosaurs and hope others get pleasure from building them! For close-up views (or to see some of my other work) please go to http://janetvand.deviantart.com/gallery/ and click on the folder icons on the left-hand side. Thanks!

  14. [MOC] Santiago de Compostela Cathedral

    Thanks, Are! Actually, I had to build two of them since I needed a prototype (the travel agency wanted the model glued and I was afraid to glue whilst building unless I was sure of what I was doing!) So, my "copy" is going to the Paredes de Coura fan weekend.... it seemed a fitting location since the real cathedral is so close by. And yes, having to build two meant I had to have double of everything in stock!
