Why is everyone just posting "I got my Lego" without posting pics, it's a dick move.

Keep you happy. ;)

I built by one or two bags a day to keep it steady as I didn't want it to be over too quickly. :lol:

Not sure if this would interest anybody but Music Magpie now buy Lego. In an odd decision they don't buy specific sets but instead give a fixed price per kilo.

I made this frame to display my London 2012 minifigs. It turned out quite nicely and was pretty easy to make.

First off, cut the baseplate to the required size. I made this a while ago so I can't quite remember, but I think I cut three lines of studs from one horizontal and one vertical side. Score it with a Stanley knife and ruler, and it should snap off with a bit of bending.

You can mount the artwork in the Ribba frame at the back or the front, so mount the cut baseplate at the back with the minifigs on there. You can just insert the minifig bases in the gaps between the studs, because the gap between the studs is equal to the height of a flat Lego piece. I thought I'd have to buy some mounting pieces but it's okay without.

It's a neat idea, as I do have soooo many minifigs and previously displayed them in a big ferrero roche box in a jumble.

Loving that "forbidden" 4x2 plate joinery. :cool:

So Lego are going to be unveiling their biggest ever set on 1st September, and rumour has it that it's going to be a new Millennium Falcon.

Costing $700 and with an instruction manual almost 500 pages long.
