  1. (Long time lurker, first-time poster here, so be gentle :) As a great lover of the fairground/ theme parks, I was pretty disappointed last year when we didn't get a Creator Expert Fairground set. I decided to take matters into my own hands and set about designing some rides of my own. I present to you; the Swing Carousel and the Drop Tower! (apologies if these photos are too large; I am nowhere near technically skilled enough to choose sizes myself :) Both rides function exactly like their real life counterparts - in the Chair-O-Planes' case, via lots of gearing and a drive wheel, and in the Drop Tower's case, by a large conveyor belt running up the centre. Here are some videos of them in action: I think that's all I'll say on their design and just let the pictures do the talking. Both rides are on Lego Ideas, and you can find their project pages (with a couple extra pictures) here: Swing Carousel Drop Tower Any and all support would be hugely appreciated (I know 10,000 is pretty unlikely, but it's worth a shot :) Please feel free to give any feedback and constructive criticism - I'm always looking for help and advice on how to improve my MOCing skills. Thanks for looking!

    Fairground Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I don't post here often, but I came to share my thoughts on the Rollercoaster. I swear I didn't come here to plug my Ideas set (total coincidence, I promise), but I think I might be the guy you're talking about :) Anyway, this coaster is awesome. Sucks that there's no loop, but it's so cool I don't even care. The red is gorgeous and the scale is unreal. The add-ons are a great touch too, and the figs look nice as well. Seriously excited for this.

    MOC: Another Milano Combination

    This is my MOD/MOC of the Milano. I originally did it just after seeing Vol. 2 in the summer, but I thought you guys might appreciate it. I originally planned just to swap colours and update the cockpit, but as I worked I decided to improve and expand more parts of the ship. More Guardians meant even more accessories, so I added cupboards and holds under the wings. How could I not represent this bit? The updated interior. And of course, the stereo saw some updating! I hope you liked it! Comments and criticisms are more than welcome!

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    @GryffindorResistance - was it either of these: As both were fake (I'm not doubting you, I'm just trying to make sure we're all on the same page)

    All the mini figures are totally OK! And thanks to everyone for the kind words and feedback!
