Resurrecting this topic because I just found something extremely cool.


This guy is a freaking genius, he managed to build this thing rather accurate to the original and make it decently posable.
And then he also made it transformable...

I wish I had enough Lego to build one, because he actually posted instructions for it.

@ Anders: how much lego do you have ?? or is it an association that has all that lego to play with ? (in the first posts you mention that there are 60+ persons that visited and played with lego, and you get really expensive sponsored Lego bundles )

i recently bought the 3 lego minecraft sets ;) really cool too :D

I don't know - somewhere between 20000 and 100000 at a guess. But those pictures with lots of Lego are from meetings with the club (http://www.swebrick.se), and the bricks are definitely not all mine :)

It seems I've missed to show pictures from our last big meet - a public show at "Arbetets Museum" (Museum of Work) in Norrköping.

Just around new year I helped my son mount the lego he got in presents, and was surprised how many new shapes and color shades lega have now, I remember back when I was kid, the colors was just about as varied as 4bit VGA colors (16 different shades?), that LoTR fortress contained atleast 4 different shades of gray!

Unfortunately I have to wait for it to be released on the interwebs, as here they only show the Dutch version for some reason, and I'm not interested in that. As if they think grown ups are not interested in lego. How silly.

So did I and my daughter (15) - we really liked it! Our cinema gave us three choices: Swedish 3D, English 3D, Swedish 2D. As we wanted English we had to endure 3D which I'm not very interested in as I don't see even real life in 3D (cross-eyed).

I know the feeling. Small theaters only have the dubbed version, not the original. Or, if they have the original, at times that are rather inconvenient. Or only 3D when you prefer 2D.

Cool as that is, Santa would definitely get negative feedback on eBay from me for delivery speed...

I've been building on the children's table... because they told me to. Honest. Not that it took much encouragement.... So - some photos:
Image Image

This is it - its on an Ikea table measuring 550mm x 550mm. It's a street with car showroom and take away food 'chip shop'. There is also a little kiosk and an alley to the rear of the showroom.

Image Image
An interior shot of the Kiosk, it needs some more 'life' and design to it, really. I've put a little magazine rack in but... well, it will be next on the list of things to consider.

Image
Here we have the two guys who do deliveries and breakdown cover for the show room, next to the truck. The truck is stock standard at the moment but it could all change in the future.
Image
This is the showroom - the office is separate from the rest of the showroom - there is a curved desk for the sales guy though with his PC and mug of tea... not sure where he is, probably on a test drive somewhere!
Image

Ahh - there he is in the front of this shot of the street.
Image Image
The on-street chip shop, as it were. Back to the showroom, because this is the order in which they uploaded...
Image Image Image Image Image Image Image

Now, to the chippy...
Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image


Next, some over-head shots of the chip shop and car show room with the sales office.
Image Image

Notice how the office has had a little refit to meet the demands of other people... I'll sort some more internal shots out in the next few days. I'm also planning on re-fitting the kiosk as well.

The chip shop takeaway has had the front re-fitted to meet the styles etc:
Image Image

And a little integration inside, too:
Image

There have been some comments about a lack of pizza oven - we'll see what comes up over the next few days, too.

Next: SUV

We've got several sports cars on this table but we also have a home-grown SUV
Image Image Image Image Image

The reason for the opening rear end was that the children liked the suitcases but didn't have an easy way to load them into a vehicle.

I'll post more in the next few days as I adjust the kiosk and showroom to meet the needs of the little street. Comments and thoughts welcome.

My latest build - an iconic Swedish railcar (but unfortunately the wrong colors - my Lego collection does not contain the righ parts in orange - see my sig for the real colors). Sorry for the UnSteadyCam(tm), phone in one hand, remote control in the other...

Well, we've been at it again - building trains with Lego, that is.
