Yesterday, my oldest and I were building some LEGO mechs in the living room, and this is what I ended up with. It’s construction is very similar to my last one.
I had to wait around a bit at Walmart last night to get a tire fixed and I found they were selling the new LEGO minifigure series. So after some nimble package squeezing, I brought home the vet with bunny, the rocket boy, the punk dwarf, two retro space guys, four corn men, and the mystery pirate character!
I may need to get more corn men though, Iowa pride and all.
Last weekend my oldest and I ended a day of errands at the local second hand LEGO store. I picked up another little tub of parts suitable for LEGO mechs, so I started farting around after i got done sorting my loot and made this guy. It’s considerably larger than my last one.
Today I went with my boys to the local Minifigures and More store to pick up some LEGO loot. I’ve been wanting to build some miniature mechs in the style of eduty over on flickr. After slowly digging through a few of the tables, I think I’ve got the pieces to build quite a few.
I made a few different versions of his frames, but I liked this last one the best and ran with that. I thought of finishing up another one, but then this happened.
When the LEGO Christmas train set was released I ran out to our local LEGO store certain that they would sell-out in minutes. I may have been a bit too worried because I was the only one there when they opened. The train wouldn’t fit on the buffet with the village so we decided to set it up to circle our tree instead.
It’s been a pretty busy last few months (to include a few weeks were I was under the weather) but I thought I’d get back to posting. A ton of the things I’ve been working on lately were presents so I couldn’t post until now anyway. This is the layout for our LEGO Christmas village this year, with the North Pole off in the distance. We’re running out of room…
The Santa’s workshop set came with an extra beard, so we made a senior elf, and it also came with an extra red ball from the “North Pole” sign so we made our young reindeer into Rudolph.
I thought this little guy looked like he needed some color, so I tried to do a quick wash on the computer. We also made a trip recently to our local second hand LEGO store, and I picked out the pieces to make two-toned, squatter, slightly kookier version of the inspiration for this doodle.
