Recently bought a few Ghostbuster Lego sets and built one the other day for displaying. Very impressed with it and only took around 40 mins or so to build and complete. :) Highly recommended set IMO. Their is some awesome concepts on the Lego Ideas website def worth a look, especially the upcoming Big Bang Theory Set :)

That car is incredible! The friction in that engine must be enormous...

I was lucky enough on Christmas Day to build a spaceship... spaceship SPACESHIP!

It was an enjoyable build, and as with all Lego sets it was fun seeing it all come together with each stage of the build. The 940 pieces took me roughly 3 hours to assemble together, and the end result was very well-engineered and with lots of play value.

I enjoyed The Lego Movie a lot, and so this was a nice addition to my modest collection :)

Today I'll be mostly building around 8 Lego sets for my little boy :)

While working out how much extra storage & dividers etc we need.

My son's Lego bins are kind of a sore subject for me. There are several high priced kits all broken apart and mixed together. Plus he traded pieces with his friends so there is no telling if something is complete.

That is what LEGO is for! I keep telling my 5 year old we need to dismantle things so we can build other things with his imagination.

Only when we get OLD do we do one off builds and keep them

Now you know how I feel every time I see a new owner of a Tamiya 3-speed :P But as expensive toys go, this suffices for me!

Adventures have ensued with the now tacky-looking aircraft I had built prior to the Spaceship Spaceship Spaceship!. One thing I like about building new sets is the opportunity to see new and different construction techniques I would not have thought of otherwise. I hope I can improve my current efforts in light of what I have learned building with new Lego.

Here's Benny amongst the parts of the original LL928:

I sold that set, plus the LL926 Space Command Centre just before Christmas...

So Benny and the Jets reformed for one last gig before they finally disbanded...

Not officially, but if you check out Lego Neo-Classic Space online, there are some cool modern-day designs based on the Lego Space theme. I highly recommend browsing there for inspiration.

Well after about 4 hours my daughter has finally finished her lego movie ice cream ship ...... Really proud of her as she has only just turned 5 and only needed help on about 5 sections of the build, one of which I struggled myself post-37716-14199692366556_thumb.jpg
