      I just came out of my LEGO dark ages after almost 20 years. It was the modular houses that really did it for me... I went nuts at the LEGO store and Toys R Us (the BOGO half off last month made a big dent in my wallet) - I think I spent about $2,000 on LEGO in the last 40 days. I tell my wife it's payback from her visits to the Chanel store

      I have to say... I'm a huge fan of the 6-studs wide "City" vehicles. I stopped playing/collecting at around 1992 and have only bought a few small vehicle sets and few Star Wars set since that time. All my previous "Town" set vehicles had been 4-studs wide and after awhile, they are kind of look the same. I was especially blown away by the engineering of the buses in the City Corner and City Transportation sets.

      IMG00532-20110507-1446

      IMG00533-20110507-1448

      However, I'm not entirely happy with the yellow bus and I'm contemplating a MOC low-floor city transit bus. Just downloaded LDD and I'm already addicted... I'm going to end up losing hundreds of hours of free time

      Some photos of my modular house build:

      IMG00626-20110626-1845

      IMG00630-20110704-1509

      As you can see, I purchased Grand Emporium, Fire Brigade, and Pet Shop. I feel a real urge to acquire Cafe Corner, Green Grocer, and Market Street... but the crazy prices on eBay has me wondering if it is cheaper to source the parts myself from bricklink.com and build it on my own (maybe a "pink" grocer? )

      I also purchased all the trains (red passenger train, yellow cargo train, Maersk train, Emerald Nights) but I haven't got around to building any of them yet. Does anyone here know if the tracks from the new train will snap together with old 9V and 4.5V tracks? I know the train have completely different power system but I was just wondering if the tracks are the same gauge. They look the same...

      Next stop... my parent's garage! I have 12 years (1980 to 1992) worth of "Town", "Classic Space", "Classic Castle", and "Classic Pirate" sets in deep storage. My wife is already threatening a divorce. But she changed her mind after I showed her how much my vintage LEGO sets are worth (I have original boxes and instruction for almost everything).

      The Unimog 8110 is availalbe on the Lego website:
      http://shop.lego.com/en-US/Mercedes-...00-8110?p=8110
      But they didn't have it in store when I just stopped by.

      So I picked up the Flatbed Truck 8109 instead.

      Now I just need a correctly scaled car to park on it. 1/26th is too small:


      Maybe I'll just find an appropriately sized Lego model:

      They didn't have 8109 at the local store either during our brickvention. Ended up having to buy other stuff with the discount.

      It sucks man, I really want to get back into Lego, but I'm broke. I had forgotten how expensive these things were. I've checked on Craigslist and even on there, the sets are out of my price range or are being bought up by the collectors My kids are starting to get into them as well - I hate being poor.....

      So, I put ~6hrs into building the Unimog last night and I'm about 80% done.
      There were a few "Now why the F are they doing that" moments.

      Another 'cute' moment was discovered because I was building some of the sub-assemblies for the truck before the main chassis. There are 2 red "L"s in the front winch that are in bag 1, not bag 4 like they should have been. So after I found them I built the winch and set it aside. About 5hrs later towards the end of the chassis build, you need those "L"s to hold something up temporarily. So I had to remember that I had already used them and tear down the winch. To get them back. Ohh well.

      I also seem to have the model with the front panhard offset by 1/2 stud which some people thought was an error, but now seems to be legitimate: http://technicbricks.blogspot.com/20...nhard-rod.html

      This set is massive. It's on par with my Silver Champion but MUCH taller. It's also heavy which is unusual for a Lego set.
      Here are some comparison pics to my other large sets. That is a DVD case in the truck bed for scale.

      I managed to finish it before my bday party. I think it took about 12-14 hours.







      My brother also took a couple pics of my walkers.
