    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Interesting. This makes two sets now (the other being the hospital) where I like the Friends version better, much to my surprise!

    Comparison of LEGO rendering engines

    Neat! The eyesight one is rather impressive. At least on my phone it looks real rather than a render.

    LEGO Elves 2018

    I'd say the local LEGO store removing all sets on August 1 and removing the shelf header, and telling people they can order the last wave's sets online while they last, does suggest that Elves is done. I mean, I'd be thrilled if it remained, but I see nothing but its demise.

    That's really fantastic. Remarkably true to life. Good work!

    Elves Autumn Animals Voting

    One point each to 5, 15, and 16. Still haven't unpacked from moving, wish I could have entered this one, as it's just up my alley! All look good :)

    2017 Friends Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Advent Calendar looks to be like last year's, the weakest of the bunch. But the hospital is great! It's flying off the shelves in my local store - I was walking around with it under my arm when two separate people came in each looking for it. There's a huge medical center here in town, which may affect demand (they can't keep the space shuttle in stock either, all the NASA people buying it!). But always good to see demand high for the larger/pricier sets. (The much-maligned puppy car set is also very popular with the littles.)

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    For all those asking about stairs - a higher level (either for observation/stationary seats or, on the largest, another tier of moving animals) isn't at all uncommon on larger carousels. Here's one in a mall near me:

    "Taverna" - Small Pirate MOC

    I really like the way you've done the doorway with the curves behind it - I usually see them used as arabic-looking windows or balcony supports, but here those pieces look like a curtain swag that's caught up off to the sides of the entrance. Really imaginative!

    Winter Village: Petrol Station and Service Garage

    I really like this one, especially the mechanic/garage section. Looks very true to life.

    First Set You Couldn't Buy

    I spent hours and hours going through every set from 1989 back on brickset and then Peeron in order to figure out what that one set was we had when kids. Finally found it (on Peeron only). It's such a thrill of delight when you find it! I need to go get the directions and build it again myself - turns out it was one of those creator or classic-style build fifteen things sets (507? Not at a good searching computer now), and I remembered only the house, but it's just regular system bricks, so I'm pretty sure I could still build it :) As to OP's question: probably a big castle, though I remember wanting a big house before I switched over to Meccano around 1993 - but I haven't found evidence of any big house set in the 1980s or early 1990s, so it may well have been a MOC I saw somewhere! Either that or it was a castle my memory's turned into a house. My sister and I had that one big standard set (and, going through the bin recently, several aquanauts sets people must have given my kid brother), and just built houses over and over with it -- and now my house is full of Lego and I just build houses over and over with it :)

    REVIEW: 41111 Friends party train

    This one was certainly the best from that sub theme. The bike is great, of course. And it's actually a party for the animals to attend (it's a different animal's birthday, from another set), so it's a slide for the animals :)

    Lego New Year's resolutions

    Maybe to put scrapped builds totally away (not just in the "to be sorted" bin) before starting something new or buying something new. When you can't make what you want because the parts you want are somewhere in a mixed bin rather than nicely in their drawer, that's no good.

    [MOC] Christmas Eve

    Too much spinning! I feel dizzy! Rather hard to watch when it won't stop spinning around. From what I could tell, though, it's a nicely composed scene.
