    Ishizuki Bonsai Tree

    Hi all! Ishizuki is a style in which the tree is rooted wholly within (atop or on the sides of) a large rock. Most of the time the roots are exposed and visible. When I saw all the different bonsai trees that are visible in the background of the Lego designer video of the new bonsai tree set I wanted to build my own bonsai tree. At the beginning of this project I was thinking of the right pot to "plant" the tree in. By chance I found this large Belville swimming pool that was perfect for a bonsai pot. It has a very striking color and a special form that gives a nice contrast to the brown and earthy tones of the bench and tree. While going through my Belville collection I realised that the legs and arms of the figures are pretty nice to form tree branches. Sadly, they are not that easy to connect to anything in the Lego system. But I tried out a lot of connections and in the end found connection points for all different joints. The result is this bonsai tree. Build for the "Build a Bonsai" competition at Brickset I think I need to keep on experimenting with these Belville joints. They are fun to mess around with Best Skalldyr

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Absolutely love it!!! Kinda what I imagined by the description. Police with italian museum vibes. Must get for me. Love that Lego got the old modular feeling back as they already did with the bookshop.
  3. Thanks! then let's wait and hope for the best
  4. I think the same. Did you know how easy it would be to cancel our house? In a case where it will nor be over by June?
  5. So I guess 13€ in total not per day, right? Then I will take it too!
  6. Same for me, if only bed linen is an option I will bring my own towel too.
  7. Sounds good! I would join you
  8. Yes indeed, a common room would be very good and especially beacuse in Billund we are always a lot of people! Btw: Did you ask for that room? It could indeed be an option. Also because I remember last year we could not get the nice room in the Legoland Village main building anymore and had to stay at the "open for everyone" common room...
  9. Oh that is indeed very sad news. A lot of fun stuff but since I already saw all of it I guess I will save the 267€ And since I will also save a lot of money in not buying sets in Billund, I could sponsor some old Sets for a price pool

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I wonder what the name will be. Birch Books would be confusing with Brick Bank (BB)
  11. That's tough dates just between two german holidays but I will make it work somehow! Count me in

    TLG acquires Bricklink

    Wow, that is heavy news! Even if I never bought a single part via Bricklink. I can simply not immagine that this can have a great outcome in the future. Of course there would be a lot of great new opportunities that I could imagine out of this new ownership. Buuuut I can also think about far too many not so nice things happening which would not make it worth it. But also, I mean I can totally understand why they see the need to get better connection with Afols. Right now there is a bigger and bigger growing pool of other, mostly Asian, Lego-like manufacturers. And what they do is simple but effective: They produce the stuff that Afols want. Sets that have 6.000+ or whatever pieces and look like Mocs. They are often beautiful, even tho the quality seems to be rather not so up to Lego standards. Buuut people buy them because they love the looks of these and because they are often the stuff that Lego does not produce. And even tho a lot of these are stolen designs and shit quality. People rather buy 10 of these then 1 Legoset. Because the prices allow to do so. Sooo to keep up with the wishes of more and more Afols that love beautiful Sets rather then stuff like a Hoth UCS or whatever, they see the need to get into the core of the Afol community and with Bricklink they probably see a way of making it possible to even sell Afols Mocs without loosing out on profits and competing with the Asian Manufacturers. Still I see a lot of downsides (some of them allready posted by other people above) and I now can only hope, that somehow non of these will become reality...
  13. Hahaha we have proven that indeed! I think no one was ever that fast. Next time we should sat a timer for an all time record keeping It was awesome and I miss you all too
  14. I think you should also add the too pictures with the black background that Holodoc has in its Brickshelf folder
