    Did the Batmobile yesterday and now want to make a little stand for the Ecto-1 I have. It's the same size as the batmobile and would look great on a little rotating stand with the info card.

    I wonder if I can make one in photoshop...

    Gratz! I did the same with the Lego City Arctic (1) sets.

    Fair warning: Assembled lego takes up a LOT of room. Plan ahead. :)

    I already have a Lego brand cinch bag to store the disassembled pieces in.

    Edit: I still have 5 more sets on the way.

    You haven’t lost your mind until you buy a second space station and modify them to all connect together.

    I mean uh not that I did that. Uh. Nope. Someone else. Yup.

    Look, you could see the city from the arctic wastelands in the art! It's like Yellowknife or Anchorage or something!

    I believe the prevailing joke is that Lego city is a veritable police state given just how many police sets appear in the City theme. That all the fires that must be put out given the prevalence of so many firefighting sets too.

    Did y'all see they unveiled the Marvel CMF line? They look amazing, arm n' leg printing, duel molding, the whole thing. All pulled from the Disney+ shows, so some mild spoilerth if you're not caught up!

    There's a rather funny error - White Vision has a yellow gem, it should be blue. The first Vision minifig from the AoU sets had the opposite problem - blue gem instead of yellow. :P

    Only minor complaints are that the Loki Gator is missing a crown, and Bucky and Sam both rocking the new shield seems like a missed opportunity for another accessory.

    Looking at it more, yeah, it does seem more like a construction frontloader (vs. a bulldozer) rather than a tractor.

    On a related note, I pulled the trigger on this set:

    3ysohf4bmwlr.jpeg

    I've been on a bit of a construction vehicle kick and already built the hook crane and (real) bulldozer sets. I plan to convert the wrecking ball vehicle into a heavy duty excavator, and keep the frontloader as is (maybe beef it up a bit with extra pieces so it'll match the excavator in size).

    The dump truck is kinda puny so I was looking at larger dump truck sets but may end up MOCing my own. Finally, I want to pick up the yellow cement mixer. Ultimately, my plan is to get six construction vehicles to represent the same alt mode vehicles that the Constructicons (of Decepticons/Transformers fame) ended up adopting as their disguises.

    Not that I want to combine them into Devastator or anything (the MOC engineering to pull that off is beyond my skill) but it makes me happy to see the vehicles those lugheads were based on in Lego form. Having two out of the six (soon to be four out of the six) is a good start!

    You can always remove the front loader part on that set for display. You can also get this one for your desk since it is small.

    Disaster!

    The mailman delivered my Shuttle set (60078) yesterday, after 7pm, way after he normally delivers mail. Since he stuck it in the mailbox, and it didn't fit, he left it half out of the mailbox and it got rained on. I don't know if it was that, or the heat from being outside so long, but my stickers did this:

    pcclp9ec6d1k.jpg

    When I went to peel the sheet away from the plastic bag (it was stuck to it) the transparent layer of the stickers remained stuck to the bag, and the backing came away.

    That's it, I've used it recently and had the missing parts in about a week. One of the items missing was one of the long pneumatic tubs on RD-0 and they set me the entire bag with all 3 tubes, so that was nice.
