    ADVENTURE IS OUT THERE!

    So, I'm still trying hard to gather supporters. Here's my reasoning behind my model. So, today, for my ultra infrequent blog, I want to talk about Disney Pixar’s Up. But first, a little about me. I was born with Cerebral Palsy, suffered a brain bleed as a baby that wiped out a quarter of my brain, and I wasn’t expected to last 10 minutes. Yet, by the grace of God, here I am. Because of my disabilities, I can’t walk well, run, etc. I also have a compromised immune system, so I’ve never been able to be as social as I could be. I have always had a dream though. I grew up with LEGO and Disney. My grandma and grandpa’s marriage has always been rock solid. I grew up with them as some of my biggest supporters. In 2009, Pixar released Up, which, although both of my grandparents are alive, spoke to me as an emulation of their love, and how God created love. So, since Up is turning 10 next year, I created a LEGO model, which I was inspired to create indirectly by my grandparents. If you would please sign up with/log into your LEGO accounts, support, and share, you’d be helping me one step further toward my dream of creating a LEGO set! To support, log in, or create a new LEGO ID like you would if you wanted to buy a set from LEGO.

    I'm having a lot of trouble, too. I will admit that my project may not be as good as some others, but Reddit is tired of me, Twitter only goes so far, and another one like it is so far along, I don't know what to do. Suggestions?

    Toy Story

    Fantastic!
  5. I wanted her there, so people could replicate the Married Life scene if desired. Just in case.
  6. This is why I said I didn't want Up characters. My friend drew them for my Ideas project: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/2014d893-a049-4506-87a3-cb923d2aa3ae5878846-legoup-thumbnail-full by Modeltrainman, on Flickr

    ADVENTURE IS OUT THERE!

    For months, I've been working on a project dear to my heart. I love Up, and the bittersweet tale of devotion it portrays. Adventure is out there! Fly to Paradise Falls with Carl, Ellie, Russell, Dug, and Kevin. Lift off the second floor to play in the living room, open the second floor roof to peek into Carl's bedroom, pose Kevin and Dug for action scenes. Recreate the Married Life sequence with Carl and Ellie. Ages 8 and up. I built this set, because I found Carl and Ellie's relationship so heartwarming. https://www.flickr.com/photos/75038470@N08/ Still don't know how to link to pictures.
  9. I slightly hope there aren't characters from Up, I'd love to see LEGO do the house as a set. As far as characters I DO want, I'd love to see Uncle Scrooge, Mary Poppins, Tigger, Pooh(with Piglet), Eeyore, Bert, Mushu,
  10. Oh, wow, if this is true...Is it known for certain?!

    [MOC - IDEAS] THE OLD WORKHORSE - TRACTION ENGINE

    I really like the lighter green! It pops out and practically screams "I'm here!"
