      I haven't done much Lego construction lately.

      I think I need to get more wheels and tires. There never seems to be enough.

      Dr_Spock send me a PM and I'll see If i can hook you up with some wheels.

    7. 06-09-2009 12:36 AM #32
      Oh no, someone stole my tires.

      Gotta figure out how to PM...

      LOL, that's awesome... I wish I had the buckets and buckets of Lego bricks from my childhood. I have my daughter into it, but everything we have thus far is from kits and built that way. I guess I need to find someone with a big old bucket trying to give it away...

      I wish I had more pics, but I was having too much fun, but you can see alot more rom the event on Flickr

      My Brickworld display section:
      It is a techno concert based in a soccer stadium, the stadium lights up fully, the stage lights up, there are built in speakers and a sub, hooks up to an ipod.


      the other part of my display, every building lights up with LED! as well as the camp fire, it uses the LED and circuit board out of a flameless candle!


      I'll have pics of the stadium lit up once I unpack it and set it back up at home.

      That's amazing. How long did it take you to build?

    15. 07-07-2009 06:34 AM #40
      Man.. there are so many little details that stands out!
      I would've loved to see all of it in person... Was this whole section yours?
      That stadium is simply incredible! The Pizza Hut, Starbucks, and the road repair crew are all just what makes Lego so special.
      PS, is that the limited edition wind power generator in the background?
      Thanks for sharing!

      Yep! the whole section is mine, for next year I'm going to double the size.
      glad you like the details! all the kids like to point those out too!
      and about the Windmill, if you cant tell, I have a windmill in my section in the second pic, mine, I built myself, but the one in the background of the first pic, that IS the limited VESTAS Windmill!
      The guy who owns it actually came all the way from Sweden to display his stuff, he had a whole train layout that he had shipped here from Gothenburg!

      This is the #1 question that you get at a Lego display.
      "How long did it take to build this?"
      "Where do you get all your legos?"
      "Are these kits?"
      "Do you work for Lego?"
      "You sure have a lot of time on your hands"

      I get that all the time, especially at the Library shows I do where the visitors are not really big LEGO fans.

      well, this is how I answer most of these:
      "How long did it take to build this?"
      - I really dont want to know.
      "Where do you get all your legos?"
      -bricklink, ebay, stores, LEGO store.
      "Are these kits?"
      -No
      "Do you work for Lego?"
      - I wish.
      "You sure have a lot of time on your hands"
      -Not really, I only when I have free time.
      and then you get these questions:
      "how do you transport it all?"
      -Modular sections
      "Is it glued?"
      -No, glue is Blasphemy
      "how many pieces is it?"
      - I dont know, I'm not going to sit there and count every damn piece I put in a MOC
      "can I buy it?"
      No.
      I've had kids come up to me and ask if they can buy the stadium or other very large things I had built.
      here is the conversation:
      kid: "hey, I really really like your stadium."
      me: " oh, thanks"
      kid: "do you want to sell it?"
      me: "well, what is your offer?"
      kid: "50$"
      me: "sorry, unless you had 1000 dollars in your pocket, then we might make a deal, but 50$, no."
      kid: "1000$!?!?!!? really?"
      me: "yes, figure the cost of all the figures, custom made lights, bricks, special parts, German exclusive soccer field bricks, shipping for parts, speakers, etc."
      Kid: "oh, ok, what about that building?
      me: "300$"
      kid: *walks away*

      I get that at least 4 or 5 times a show.

    20. 07-11-2009 05:36 PM #45
      I haven't been to a show before. What are the proper questions to ask?

      Time for another LEGO picture. My latest Lego creation is a crawler drill. It is used to drill blast holes for underground or above ground mining. I think it took 1/2 hour or so to build.

      My latest Lego mod. I have added an additional power function M-motor and switch to my 8294 excavator and removed the clutch mechanism. Now each of the 2 linear actuators can be independently controlled.

      I have not been building much personal stuff lately because I'm building the LEGO Store displays for the new LEGO Store opening in Orland Park. I would take pictures, but since the Store is not open yet I was told I cannot.
      anyways, here is at least one thing I finished just for fun:
      Matrix Sentinel:

      Did you get the pieces from Space Skulls when Lego.com was selling them off at like 50% or more off? I ordered the Boeing Dreamliner.

      After playing a bit I didn't like feel of the switches so I replaced them with the infrared receiver and transmitter.
