    My Halloween Village

    This is really delightful - I love the spooky lighting you've included. The simple octagonal vignettes are a nice touch, too. Thanks for sharing!

    [MOC] Pink Floyd - The Division Bell

    Wish You Were Here is of course a beaut... Piper is simple but effective. Nice work to capture the effect on Syd's face on the latter.

    [MOC] Pink Floyd - The Division Bell

    I love all these builds - the cover for Dark Side of the Moon is particularly snazzy. Great to see your take on Battersea Power Station from the Animals cover, and I like the colourful sky behind it all. Which album is next? Piper?

    [MOC] Audi R8 - Speed Champions

    Great shape here - particularly impressed with the spoilers used as the stripes behind the doors. Excellent build and thanks for sharing!

    MAfia - Sign Ups

    1) I've played a few times and I promise I'll be good; 2) Currently on holiday but I'll be available to play from Monday the 23rd; 3) Awful thrillers from the likes of David Baldacci and Ted Bell.
  6. So that they're ~exclusive~ and ~collectible~ when they're actually very boring figures nobody would otherwise take a second glance at. I actually think the details on this are great. I agree that the engines (particularly the cowlings) are a bit of a miss, but otherwise I think it's a massive step up from the 10030. Though I've said already, shame about the price.
  7. How cute! It gives the Valentine's Puppy a run for its money. That's great news.
  8. I mean it looks nice, but $700 for <5k pieces is trying it on. It can't really be all that special, can it?
  9. When I buy a set it is to be built, so I follow the instructions. If I want to build, then I buy parts, mostly from PaB but sometimes from Bricklink.

    [MOC] Stranger Things: Scoops Ahoy!

    "Hey dingus!" I love how you've captured the colour scheme, from the SNOT floor to the striped walls. The booths & lights are lovely as well. Great build and thanks for sharing!

    Review the LEGO Theme above you

    Architecture had strange beginnings with the Sears Tower and John Hancock building sets, but came into its own with a range of high-quality products based on high-quality architecture, from Chicago to London to South Korea. Unfortunately, the recent focus on skyline sets has taken the focus away from the origins of the theme, but perhaps the new Empire State Building represents a return to form. 7/10 Next up: Homemaker

    Olafur Eliasson - Tate Modern

    The artist Olafur Eliasson is currently staging a major exhibition at the state Modern in London, which charges a fee. However, his 2004 artwork The Cubic Structural Evolution Project is free to see in the turbine hall of said museum. The artwork consists of a cityscape constructed from one tonne of white LEGO bricks, and you can tear some down and rebuild the city in your own vision. More info here: https://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-modern/exhibition/olafur-eliasson/olafur-eliasson-cubic-structural-evolution-project Unfortunately, I can't go. But hopefully some EB members can check it out and maybe report on the experience!
  13. I'm not busy (much) but I've been without computer for a month now and everything is just soooo haaaard and I can't even play around with Mecabricks in my free time. Your reactions were hilarious and much easier to take less seriously since they were so over the top. Can't wait for The Forest 4 where I get to be an exploding tree stump
  14. Sorry I was so dumb... but I did turn out to be right about Sulu! Thanks for hosting, Bob! I enjoyed the storytelling and the setup. Well done town for sticking it out.
  15. I just don't talk to anyone IRL More seriously, I've posted a couple of MOCs on my personal website that is on my CV, so I suppose if a prospective employer is sufficiently curious, they can talk to me about it.
