  1. I always had a hard time finding the right system to sort and store my LEGO. As a child it was easy, since I did not care about every single piece too much or if I didn't find the right piece immediately. But as an adult I always wanted to build things myself and to store the bricks in a way that I could find everything fast and comfortable. ? I though, maybe it is helpful for some of you guys to see how I sorted my stuff... ? Here are some pictures about my system! My current collection is at around 85'000 pieces, just to give you an idea... ? These are drawers from amazon called IRIS (essy to find) and they come in very different shapes. Mine have 12 drawers but the are also ones with only 10 or less. The smaller boxes are from a local DIY-Store and what I like about them is, that they are made from plastic, which means they are very light. My most used figures are just put onto some 32x32 or 16x32 plates for easy access. And as you can see my "city" and the place where I shoot my pictures is limited but still more than enough. Currently I use my new Foldio2 Lightbox which makes shooting so much easier. ??? If you have any questions or additions, just share them! ? I'm glad to here from you! ? Sacha Edit: Sorry for the missing pictures... ?
  2. Question, what do you guys do with your LEGO set boxes after building the set? Do you throw them away? Store them? What do you guys do with em?
  3. This is for discussion of train storage systems (or lack thereof if you are unlucky). I'll start with my storage / transport solution: If anyone has wondered how I get my trains to and fro all over the place, here is my secret: cardboard paper boxes. Fourteen (14) of them from all different places and companies. I tried asking for the empty ones at the Office Max / Office Depot stores (They are all owned by the Staples company now, believe it or not!) but they can't sell or give them away due to some corporate policy. I had been getting them from my dad's work, and more recently, different offices I have been to / worked at. They are them cut-down by Xacto knife and hot glued back together with opening lid and section dividers, which allows for me to store trains a number of different combinations. Most of the passenger cars are 24 studs long, with 1 studs of overhang over each coupler. However, the Spirit of Legoredo is an older 28 stud long design, and most steam locos are longer than 30 studs. Nevertheless, I have maximized space whenever possible. Below you will see several variations on these boxes, and maybe they will help you with your train storage problems. Forgotten GS-6 Daylight 4-8-4 and Meramec river Runner passenger train Alco FA / FB (not shown) and Spirit of Legoredo passenger train Generic six car freight train (not shown - on display on my layout) Mikado 2-8-2 steam freight loco and EMD E-unit cab + booster units American 4-4-0 and early passenger train Now how do YOU store or transport your trains?!?
  4. Hi all, Back with my second MOC after some weeks of buying bricks, thinking, scetching, scratching my head, building and buying more bricks. Scorpion house is a modern hillside villa overlooking a lake. Partly built into a rocky terrain it features four levels. The house is designed with basically six boxes of different sizes in just black and white. I do like such designs a lot, so the second proper MOC had to be such a design as well. Initially I wanted to build something rather extreme in terms of technique, based on the design ideas in this house from swiss architect Andre Treina. http://www.schoener-...g-haus-am-hang. I saved that for later with all those angles and massive height. The idea which I finally kept, still stretching my design and lego capabilities, is a house built for a car lover (personally I'm not ;-)) on a hillside terrain and several boxes with concrete and glass. The glass front faces the lake and provides spectacular views, especially from second and third level. The back of the house includes much less windows as it faces a steeper hill. Scorpion house - modern hillside villa by Polar Stein, on Flickr Scorpion house - sketches & layout by Polar Stein, on Flickr The main entrance and big garage is at ground/street level. The owners had ordered the garage door in Ferrari red as they own an Italia GT2 model, which is driven mostly by the wife. The main entrance connects to the house with a six stud wide corridor or tunnel to the main building. The beloved car can be seen through large glas windows walking through the corridor (and also top windows next to the swimming pool). The garage provides a small service access for the pumps and pipes of the pool. At the end of the entrance corridor stairs lead up to the first level.

Scorpion house - modern hillside villa by Polar Stein, on Flickr At first level we face a small bathroom when leaving the stairs. Turning right either leads up to the second level or two steps down to the kitchen and eating area. Glas doors open to the swimming pool and (way too small!) front garden on top of the garage. Scorpion house - modern hillside villa by Polar Stein, on Flickr On the second level there is a large bathroom with a steam shower and access to the small sauna. The roof is with glas elements just over the bathroom area to provide natural light. Yes, the sauna provides stunning views through a large glas window over the lake. The owners are aware that they could be seen from the street. Those who prefer a different layout may turn the whole left box into staircases or assume the owners use their swimwear (what a sin). The second level also contains the living room, again with stunning views over the lake, the master bedroom and a room for the child. The master bedroom has a glass roof as well to watch the stairs while lying in bed. Access to the third top level is via spiral stairs.

As a hommage to his favorite football/soccer club, the color scheme of the studio is again black and yellow. Scorpion house - modern hillside villa by Polar Stein, on Flickr In case you wonder about the name of the house, look again at the garage door handle. It's the wife's star sign. Scorpion house - modern hillside villa by Polar Stein, on Flickr More pictures on Flickr including some interiors (I'm not great with interiors). I'm reasonably pleased with the overall design and shape of the house itself, architecual effects with technic bricks are more reduced this time. I need to think of a way to improve the actual terrain and don't like that it looks a bit packed. I'm also not too happy with the rocks which I wanted to do a bit larger and with a stronger influence on the shape of the terrain, also extending behind the house on the left side, almost reaching into the pool etc. Maybe next time. I also find it difficult to do proper pictures. Comments and critique very welcome!
  5. Hello Eurobricks, I was just in my local Target yesterday and noticed a peculiarity with the X-1 Ninja Charger box... There was printing on the box of punch tabs, but no place to punch as the cardboard wasn't perforated. Instead, there was the standard LEGO box tape over the pictures of punch tabs. Has anyone experienced this before in the ninja box or any other box?

    Best set ever?

    Hey everyone, I didn't see a topic for this so... Might as well post one! In your opinion, what is the best LEGO set ever? It can be in terms of cool parts, minifigures, or anything else you can think of! To get the discussion kicked off, I personally like the old Space sets, especially Blacktron (if you can't tell by my user photo id ), but I admit that those were definitely not the best sets ever produced. So what do you think? legozebra
