    Review Review - 21304 LEGO IDEAS Doctor Who

    Excellent review! Can't wait to buy my copy. Just 1 small point: They already can be found in the following sets: http://www.bricklink...colorID=12&in=A

    A Guide to building a Medieval Village

    Hi, I only recently discovered your amazing guide. It's wonderful to learn so many ways of building! Thank you so much for just so much more pleasure in building :) When I started of trying to build my own house, I found it hard to build the walls with all the tiles, as you suggested. Not only do I not have that many tiles, but I found it hard to pack all the tiles. It only took a few minutes to build up the walls in a similar way, using plates instead of tiles: building a stack with 4 plates, topping it off with a tile gives the same impression as putting all the tiles together. Off course you need to use 9 plates + tile to cover the broader areas. This is a pretty way to save on tiles and has the advantage of much more sturdier walls. Hope you like the suggestion. And now I'm going to build like crazy :) Daan Bargerbos / The Flying Dutchman / Debarg

    Inspired by the new Pet Shop 10128

    Thanks for the compliments (all of you the last days). I think I've used the Medium Blue tiles. I have dismantled the stairs for a few weeks now, so I can't check. I've also experimented with 'dark turquoise', they do very nice in combination with the dark red. Combining colours: fascinating stuff :)

    thanks so much for the video's! The van is super! The Post Office is very cute and fits very well in the winter scene. Great job done at the LEGO build office :- )

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this You are completely right: a few adaptations should be necessary... I can't agree more on this: although they were quite interesting builds, I always found them Technic-lego-caly out of place/time. My first association with the IceDragon was being it a white dragon it could come in handy for the escape form Gringotts scene.

    I've been thinking of using the Ice Dragon of the Ninjago set 2260 as the dragon for the escape from the dungeons of Gringotts. What do you think?

    The Prison of Azkaban

    Very nicely done! And you've used a nice technic worth to remember in future building. Thanks for sharing!
  10. Very nice review of a very nice set! I need a bigger desk to fancy all the sets that could stand there for display .

    REVIEW: 4866 - The Knight Bus

    Thanks Catanas for the excellent review. I like your humour a lot. Especially your cartoon at the end ! Fond of the HP sets I'm likely to buy this one, though I'm giving it a shot when/if they are priced off...

    Enlarged Dining Hall Hogwarts Castle set 4842

    Thanks! I totally agree: there so much more to do than Lego has done so far. Although the company give in 'The HP Years 1-4' some excellent views of what is possible (chandeliers, great fire place, nice decorations - there should at least be the banners of the two other Houses). Guess we just have to build (and expand) our own versions, right?

    Maybe 'the going very well together' thing is only this: there are technic bricks that function as connector bricks. They allow easy connection with the last Hogwarts Castle. I do think the towers and bridge can make a nice addition to the bigger castle, especially when all the three parts (two towers and the bridge) can be connected seperated: it's a kind of modularity that could enhance the playability of the combined sets.
