    LEGO UFO Appreciation.

    This just makes me feel OOOOLD! I was working in my first job after university, designing toys for cereal packets. Nestlé (Cereal Partners) had the option to promote these sets on their cereal boxes. I can't remember what happened to that but we got sent some photocopies of promotional images, to brainstorm from. We couldn't see anything on the photocopies and in the end, to just see the Aliens we had to sign NDAs and all sorts. Exciting times they were. I was really impressed with the sets, bought some for my nephew (who was about eight at the time), I was hoping to build them with him... nope, he did them himself & wouldn't let me look at them :-(

    [MOC] Mr Moon

    Okay, so, still a little bit disappointed that I didn't get selected in the space contest, so I've submitted it as a project... Mr Moon, for your extra consideration https://ideas.lego.com/s/p:22946c781c8a4e0b914e920b36e99bca?s=mI was intending to include the following comment, but IDEAS won't allow it: There will be many phases of the Moon, depending on the level of support, because I have ideas for adding to and updating the project. 250 supporters - Option for a classic space/astronaut minifigure in the spaceship orbiting (a CS flag pops up!) 500 supporters - Perhaps an alien could take the place of the flag as the pop-up? 1000 supporters - Option for a cow jumping over the moon, maybe brick built, maybe moulded! either way, a milk carton would replace the flag! 2500 supporters - I will modify the background, add a star field and perhaps some sort of picture frame! 5000 supporters - I will make a new video of all the options and hopefully add it here! 7500 supporters - Maybe a rotating planet or a distant star/sun could be added? I fully intend to make other updates to the project along the way, but there will hopefully be amendments here that come as a result of your suggestions!? 10K! We can make it to the Moon together! Somehow it made the submission "incomplete" or "placeholding" - whatever! I'd really appreciate your support and if you felt you could share it elsewhere, that would also be very cool! Thanks :-)

    [MOC] Robo Raptor Xtreme (LEGO Ideas Space Contest)

    How have I missed this? Okay, going over there now. Great update by the way! We like LEGO Space and dinosaurs in our house, win -win ;-) Good luck in the contest too :-)
  4. If you haven't already, please help Jonas Kramm over the line. He only needs a handful more supporters for his wonderful Viking longboat: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/2f44c371-d67c-4eb9-8b63-4cda968dfb93 Sorry if it's been posted before.

    Right now I'm kicking myself for not pursuing a minifigure flying the spaceship! D'Oh!

    Iron Harvest - PZM-7 "Smialy"

    Woah! Such fantastic details, the time and effort is clear and well worth it :-) Love the armoured walker!

    It's so, so fantastic. I think I'm in love with the Brontosaurus!

    [MOD] A lockdown project - Odyssey No.918

    Thanks! It's a fun little exercise, researching and finding the parts and building an alternate colour! Thank you! Yeah, it was expensive, totally blew my budget for a few months! It spiralled out of control and kept demanding I do the next one. Really good fun, distraction, worth every penny! Glad you enjoyed the ride too! Cheers!

    Jurassic World 2021 - Rumors & Discussion

    My kids watched the series on Netflix recently, Allosaurus is certainly a strong contender I think. My wildly unrealistic pipedream is still for a sauropod though, preferably a Brachiosaurus... sorry for wishlisting.

    Those are very kind words indeed :-) Thank you for your support. I'm really pleased it has spoken to you! My friend made a Meliés connection too, I did consider going the full moon route for this, but I thought there had already been a moc out there, I have failed to find the one I was thinking of and trying to avoid too much, so maybe I needn't have worried!
