  1. Brilliant! Thanks so much CopMike - absolutely over the moon to have won! You're a real star for arranging this.
  2. Thanks to CopMike for running the competition again. As usual I've asked my kids to put together my entry so you've got one tree made by each. (To be fair, they will get any prize as well!).

    Marvel Superheroes 2015 Rumors & Discussion

    Wow. I can't believe they're only giving the WS away in he UK with Helicarrier purchases. Much too expensive for me - I wonder how many collectors are getting priced out of Lego Super Heroes at the moment? I'm happy to buy sets that offer good playability for the kids but I'll definitely be spending less than previously as there's no chance of me completing a collection now.

    Best and Worst Marvel/DC Figures

    Best Marvel - Rocket from the polybag although I loved the Storm figure. Worst Marvel - the Sentinel which is all manner of wrong. The head is far too small and the whole thing looks flimsy. Other than that, I'll echo the thoughts on Green Goblin. As a comics fan I don't like Electro either but can see why he is as he is. Best DC - Batgirl is excellent Worst DC - don't really have one. There wasn't a single duff figure in the whole range.

    Bootleg Super Heroes minifigs - worth it or not?

    Wow, SY are really starting to produce figs that rival those of Lego themselves. The Beast especially is awesome.

    Glad to have a Strucker but I'm not sure what was wrong with the classic green outfit with the Hydra logo on the chest.

    [MOC] Satellite

    Thanks! The dish is from a Ninjago set - can't remember which one I'm afraid. And no picture used - all from his imagination!

    Could I put a +1 on this request please?

    [MOC] Satellite

    Thanks. I told him what you'd said and he's been using it to attack my classic space sets most of the day!

    [MOC] Satellite

    I asked my 8 year old to build something for CopMike's Christmas competition and then unfortunately got confused about the time difference and missed the deadline. What, he built though I'm really impressed by so I thought I'd upload it anyway! This is his 'TV space satellite' - hope you like it.
  11. Damn - missed it by 10 mins! I'll make sure to enter next year.

    Thanks everyone - the Collector thing was more out of hope than expectation! Has there been any news about a more extended run of the Electro polybag next year?

    Interesting that the SDCC Rocket has been released in a poly. It makes me wonder whether there's any chance of The Collector coming out too. I just hope that Rocket makes his way to the UK as well. I'd be gutted to miss out on that one.

    [MOD] Double Daily Bugle

    Hi everyone. I'm always really keen to see how it's possible to make bigger (generally 32 width) buildings with multiple copies of the same set. As I'm hugely into superheroes I've just completed a version bringing together two #76005 sets (the Daily Bugle Showdown). Apart from the circular bricks, creating the columns at the front, the only bricks used are those from the two 76005s. In some places that meant that I was a bit short of bricks - there are some places where I could have done with different pieces (the use of the brown plate instead of dark grey on the roof for example). I'd also have liked to have a but more detail near the top, but again a lack of useful bricks stymied me. I would welcome your thoughts - I may well put in a Bricklink order to jazz it up a bit. And I'd really like to make it bigger - another 8 deep would be good (to make it 32x16 instead of 32x8). If you're interested in Daily Bugle MOCs/MODs, can I also recommend these two which are superb: by HayHay by vitroleum

    Do you have roundabouts where you live?

    I live very close to the world's first roundabout (in Letchworth in Hertfordshire, UK).
