Golden Eye LEGO Mech

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.

LEGO Series 17

LEGO Series 17

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.

Newest LEGO Mini-mech

Second LEGO Mini Mech

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.

LEGO Mini Mech

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.

LEGO Christmas Train

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.

Christmas LEGOs

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.

This is what we did with this year’s Chirstmas Train set.

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.

This little guy is a direct result of seeing Mihai Marius Mihu’s too-cute LEGO owl.  I now need to raid my local second hand LEGO store to gather enough pieces to make my own.

LEGO Booty

Today the boys and I visited a newly opened “Bricks & Minifigs” store in town.  I picked over all the loose bins for as many Technic parts that I either needed more of or had never seen, and crammed one of their little cups full.  Was hoping to score some long beams too, but those seem to have been already snatched up.  Will definitely be returning.

On another LEGO related note, I picked up a Groundskeeper Willy the other day and thought his noggin might look funny on Metalbeard’s body.

Tennessee Decals

Last post for the weekend, I made some more state shaped Home stickers on a 1′ x 2′ sheet of vinyl I had.  Designed in Inkscape and cut on my Silhouette Cameo.  Vinyl from here.

I’ve also added a new guardian to my desk to ensure my boys aren’t eating anything when they use my computer.  I’m worried what shenanigans these two might get into though when no one is looking.
