  1. I know this is dredging up an old thread, but if anyone is still interested in a Yorkshire LUG, check out www.brickshire.org.uk. It's our first birthday this year, which we'll be celebrating this saturday at the Yorkshire Brick Show (www.yorkshirebrickshow.org.uk)

    Cleaning and straightening out your sails

    I've cleaned quite a few dirty sails now. I used the washing machine (I know, I know) on the lowest spin setting possible (gentle fabrics). Once they were out, I ironed them whilst wet (under a thin tea towel). This did 3 things - a) protected the sail from burning, b) dried the sails immediately, preventing mildew, and c) Straightened and stiffened the sails. I can't tell you how happy I was with how stiff the sails were after ironing them wet. Obviously the washing machine caused a few frayed edges, but my wife is quite handy with fabrics, and by the time she'd done trimming them, the sails looked brand new.

    [MOC] - Ambush

    Cheers everyone, I appreciate the support. @DrLegoStar, you are probably right, but they don't know that yet, thus was their best plan. ;-) @flobnomdob. Yes, in my hunt for good value baseplates, I acquired quite a number of Minotaurus and Ramses Revenge microfigs.

    [MOC] - Ambush

    Cheers guys. I wanted to show some scale between the monster and the "heroes". I was partially inspired by the old Sinbad movie.

    [MOC] - Ambush

    Ambush He's taken the bait - RUN! That Cyclops is going to have a really bad headache very soon Created for the Brick Fanatics Series 9 Diorama contest. It is a perfect 16 stud cube. This is also my first ever completed MOC, and my first attempt at SNOT building. The limitations set were that it had to be 16x16, no taller than 16 bricks, and must feature a series 9 CMF. There is a picture at another angle in my Flickr stream Let me know what you think.
  9. If you contact the Secretary, they can set it up so you can pay by PayPal rather than by cheque. That's how I joined, because I don't have a cheque book. The alternative is a postal order.
  10. Hi Phil, I'm from Yorkshire too (Pontefract to be precise). There are actually a few of us that get together regularly for meet-ups at the Sheffield store, but no "building" per se. A few of the guys might be interested in meet-ups for building. You should get in touch with Bricksan, as he generally organizes these. He also happens to be a Lego Ambassador and the Showcase Coordinator for the Sheffield Lego Brand Store. There isn't a Yorkshire LUG at the moment, but a number of Brickish members are looking at forming "Northern Brickworks" which is intended to be a LUG for those in the North of England. Any which way, keep in touch, it's always nice to meet a fellow Yorkshire AFOL. Rich
  11. Just a quick bump - there are only two days left to get your entry in. They've had a couple of good ones in already. Can you do better?

    Foster the People - Houdini

    Very impressive. Are the band aware of it? I bet they'd love it.
  13. One of the other sites that I frequent is running a Lego LOTR competition based around creating a video of your favourite scene from a computer game using Lego. The prizes are being sponsored by my site, Bricktrader, but it being wholly run and judged by the good folks over at GamerKitten. The top prize is a copy of the Lego LOTR Game on any format, and a #9469 Gandalf Arrives set. To see all the terms and conditions of the competition visit the GamerKitten competition page. So if you like making videos and live-comics with your Lego, have a look. Mods - apologies if this is in the wrong place - I thought it would be most relevant to film makers. Please feel free to move it if it's in the wrong place.
  14. My second and final entry: 1 x Sea Serpent = 5pts 1 x Turtle = 3pts 1 x Dodo = 3 pts 1 x Capuchin = 1pt 1 x Starfish = 1pt 1 x Jellyfish = 1pt Total = 14pts

    2012 Pirates?

    If this concept art for the monster fighters theme is anything to go by, we may see a ghost ship yet, which could utilize that Flying Dutchman design. What do you think? October 2013?
