I've actually had the temptation to do what your mom did with all the Lego sets I have, but in the end it'd be a mess because I have a shitload.

Anyone ever ordered anything from the digital designer?

I just made this on my lunch break:

I've always thought the prices of stuff from the Digital Designer is always slightly too expensive. You always design things that you think would be a £20 set IRL, and it ends up costing you £15 more or something :shifty: Now I've got a bit of money I might try it, though. Really want a Lego Eurostar... :wub:



I saw that a while back, it's pretty swish. Quite impressive that it actually works and everything.

I have an idea. Why don't we track down the instructions for the Millenium Falcon and build it on the designer thingy and order the pieces from there? Or will it cost too much?

It'll probably cost less than they want on Amazon :shifty:

LET'S DO IT.

Instructions are here: http://us.service.lego.com/en-us/Buildi ... 25430.aspx

type the number 10179. The pdf is 140 MB, though :shock:

If I go through the pieces I already have and only order the ones I'm missing, I'm sure I could build it for a reasonable price.
It's an ambitious project, though.

Just realised I've got the Lego Star Destroyer too, so I can dismantle that to get a load of grey bricks :wub:

Not the UCS one, this one:

I know it's a triple post and all, but looking at the parts list for the Millennium Falcon, it's impressive how few parts there are that've introduced especially for the set. I thought they'd do some crazy single brick thing for the cockpit, but it's just a load of those flagpole sticks joined together by the Lego Alien arms:

Image

I have such a massive want for one of these right now :wub:

Yeah, I noticed they didn't use "glass" for the cockpit. IMHO the set's only flaw, but then the less special bricks they introduce in a set, the better, so it balances out. Oh, and also, it balances out because it's the mummy strawberry floating ultimate Star Wars toy.

Although those clips that are holding the cockpit's poles were introduced as the arms of the Episode 1 robots

Image


At least that's the first time I remember seeing them.

Same for the dark gray "cannon" thing that's level with Han's head, pointing away from him. They were first used as blasters for the first Star Wars starships, like the X-Wing and Snowspeeder.

Just a quick reminder, there's now free shipping on orders over £25 (to the UK, sorry Sputnik) from the Lego website until the 15th of April. Perfect for stocking up on bits for the Falcon :shifty:

The Maersk diesel-electric freight train has arrived

Anyone getting it? I'm tempted, but I've already spent 400 quid this month... :fp:

Looking at that train box makes me want to build a whole Lego city to go with it. If I'm super rich one day, I'm going to get a house with a giant basement and fill half of it with Legos.
