Sundays booty.

Bought these on Sunday, someone brought them around for me. I paid £25.00 the lot (well that's kind of true, they did bring something else with them which I sold to subsidies this purchase).

As you can see mostly Lego City police. Will probably build them later in the year.

Free TC-14 if you spent over £50 on Star wars Lego.

Unfortunately I missed the free shipping offer by one day and wasted £3.95.

Silver Champion complete.

Finally finished 8458. A nice model to build with lots of good detail. I dragged my second one out of the loft so I could see how many parts were missing from it.

Silver Champion 8458 cont...

On page 32 now.

This is a great build so far not too tricky, as with all set though, getting the part you want when there all jumbled together is a nightmare.

Silver Champion 8458

I thought I would start to build this F1 car. I bought it in the summer but have only just got around to building it. I am of course still working on my Headland stuff but I needed a break.

Just started on the chassis,this is a big build with over 100 pages in the instruction booklet.

Elves (garden gnomes) around the tree

Christmas at the Headland

Christmas Tree ready for the Headland.

I have been tasked to give the Lego Headland Hotel a Christmas theme for a treasure hunt over the month of December. I have finished the tree and as you can see from previous posts the reindeer are almost complete.

Finished the nine...

Completed the reindeer, I need to sort out the harnesses next.

Friday, 12 October 2012

Just up ended the Brown Bricks to make some reindeer's  for the Headland display.

 I was going to base it on this creator model but it would have been too wide.


I went to Toys R Us today and bought  9526-1: Palpatine's Arrest and two  9469-1: Gandalf Arrives

 Managed to get them with a 20% off voucher £5 voucher and with my loyalty card another £5.00 off total paid £73.18 

In the beginning.....

In the beginning.....

 I started collecting Lego about 12 years ago. I remember seeing the new Star wars range in Forbidden Planet, Broadmead, Bristol., and thinking you can get better than that.

Star wars + Lego + a great toy.

The set I bought was the 7110 Landspeeder. a real basic set by today's Lego Star Wars standards, it didn't even have an R2 unit, but I still wasn't quite hooked yet it took another year before I started seriously looking at Lego again.
