    What did you BUILD today?

    As simple as it sounds, what did you build today? You can be as vague or specific as you like. This is just for fun. Did you spend the evening creating, tearing down, and recreating a small part in your MOC? (i.e. archway, tree, etc) Did you build the Modular/ UCS/ desirable set that you finally acquired but had not yet built? Did you spend the day just sorting bricks? Are you planning/designing/drawing your next build? Creating a new set in Lego Digital Designer or stud.io? ========================================================================================= To start it off: I worked on 71741 Ninjago City Gardens, for the 5th evening and finished the 2nd (of 3) instruction book.

    Latest impact of other themes on historic themes

    I absolutely agree. Although, my first "large" castle set was 6071 Forestmen's Crossing which definitely made Forestmen a favorite. All the sneaky tactics, bravado, antihero-like status akin to musketeers and freedom fighters make it more fun! I too look forward to seeing more modernization of those concepts!

    What did you BUILD today?

    The last couple of nights I have been building two of the 31120 Creator Medieval Castle, I did the main build with the first and the tower with the second which disappointed me how many pieces were left over. I thought they alternative builds would at least use most all of the pieces.

    What did you buy today?

    Picked up a Hogsmeade Village finally, used all my Target GCWP [giftcard(s)-with-purchase] that I have been accumulating. I had to pay $10, and then got an additional $10 GCWP!

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Exactly, like you said, the diminishing returns is ever present. Like the back/4th wall of WV sets. I feel that's why so many people buy multiple modulars to bulk out the buildings they choose.

    Is this supposed to be an image of the Snow Warrior? Are you seeing a 90s Tribal chief image with images behind it or a different image?

    Future Castle Sets?

    Five of them! That's fantastic! Agreed! I also bought two (though now I wish I bought five more.) The person I talked to originally at Costco said each store was only getting the initial allotment that they received (and wouldn't be replenished on those sets) but I will gladly hope with everyone else that isn't true and more sets arrive for discounted purchase. Yes! Yes! They love to pump out City sets, we just need ~12th Century City sets and minifigures!

    I love it! Detailed exteriors gives it a feel of warmth. A charming building with a timeless look.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Ordered sleighs! I didn't see the wreaths listed in U.S. I'll have to go check again. So excited! Oh no! I forgot to get the tumbler, but I just want the little minifig-scale one which I am sure will be in stores.

    BROWN HEDGEHOG ARMOR! For my noveau Forestman! I was able to order the "new" black falcon torsos (from blaskmith shop/3n1 castle) last night, but I think they have been in stock for a few days already.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    They look great well done! I was set on buying these from the moment I saw them but trying to hold out til I find a good deal or until the Oct. 25th - Nov. 7th GWP promo for Harry Potter sets now that it has been announced. I'm not knowledgeable about ordering/shipping across borders if that would incur any extra fees etc.? I did build my Santa's Visit already and I am excited to put them all together for this years winter display and add LED lights through out .

    What did you buy today?

    I picked up a second 76192 (without minifigures) and hope to make a bigger shield base combining those 2 sets with the previous set 76131.

    Welcome to Eurobricks! I am a huge fan of the various medieval Lego themes, and I am excited to see what creations you come up with!

    What did you BUILD today?

    Had a big family Lego build-together weekend with my kids, and my siblings with their children and all together built several sets: 31202 LEGO Art Disney's Mickey Mouse 76166 Avengers Tower Battle 76940 T.Rex Fossil Exhibition 10293 Santa's Visit 30413 Friends Flower Cart 10717 Classic Bricks Bricks Bricks 1500+ pcs (2 of them) It was a blast of a weekend!
  15. I agree. I love Marvel, but a yearly series would likely get to be too much, (for other people haha). Comparable to my prior frustrations when we had TLBM Series 1 and then 2, followed by DC "classics" series, It felt like we had a multiverse of Batman's and company.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    It's like you foretold the future. Also, like you foretold the future. Strangely enough, I bought an entire collection from a family that had this whole set in it. I was ecstatic! Especially because I paid less for it than My bad, that was supposed to be posted in the "What Did You Buy Today?" thread. Funny how we all differ, I had thought of buying two and building a larger sled to hold more toys. I remember seeing a clip of a cartoon called American Dad that had some ridiculous war/battle with Santa and the elves LOL North Pole HOA Excellent idea!

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    My Bad Batch sets and Bro Thor Apartment both showed up from S@H. This weekend picked up several sets from Wal-Mart stores on clearance. Speed Champions Lamborghini's, DC Wonder Woman, Ninjago VS. sets, couple Vidiyo character sets I didn't have, basically anything I could find of interest at 50% off or greater.

    Free Build: Petraean Alley

    I love these smaller detailed builds. The illusion is an Expert level detail! The building style appears consistent throughout which is doubly impressive being a free build. Well done!

    What did you buy today?

    That is decent. It pains me that I, not once but twice, missed out on complete sets for under $65. ========================================================================= I had stopped by a Wal-Mart , so had to make a pass through the Lego aisle, they recently got several of the Speed Champions sets in so I picked up a 76900 Koenigsegg Jesko.

    I wants it, I needz it, I MUST HAZ IT!!!! My parts purchasing budget has been severely reduced (due to the insane cost of daycare.) So I might just have to track this down as a small consolation.

    I snagged at a local Target today: 10280 Flower Bouquet (finally) Wile E. Coyote (2) from Looney Tunes Minifigures
