Lego - Fun to share, great to stare

Well, since @Anonymous put a spotlight on my one hobby that doesn't require electricity (with exception of the train tracks, which is for another post) and gets me hopping about (in excitement or pain)*, I've decided to start a little Lego topic here for us all to post photos of our creations - from the instructions or from our own minds... actually, thinking about it, perhaps we need to start a poster-exclusion list now - I've read the rumours thread, you know.  

So, welcome to the Lego Topic - a place for the creative person in all of us to look, to enjoy, to share, to dribble over**, to contribute, to suggest, to.... something or other... just make sure you clean up after yourself.

Spoiler
*I need to order some thick slippers for Christmas, I think. Or, you know, clean up after myself.

**Of course dribbling is allowed - this isn't a branch of Dixons, you know.

PS...that post above is in no way negative you understand....Just no idea how you do that. I was never any good at lego with my sons. Patience was never my forte you see...all my lego builds just came out wonky and fell over...Rolleys

This is amazing @Daddydoink! How much space is that hobby taking though? I thought my scrapbooking and acrylic painting was intrusive enough...you must have a lot of space to have all the little houses built up...

 

One question...is that a man dressed as a sausage or am I dreaming???

He is - He's a Hotdog man, who undertakes promotional work for the cafe he's stood outside of.   Glad you like it @Anonymous

No negative intent read, @Cleoriff.  It didn't spring up overnight though - its taken a couple of months a bit of input from the children.

Great topic @Daddydoink

Great to see @Daddydoink!

 

Do you just use City stuff, or do you ever delve into the film/comic-inspired sets?

Re: Lego - Fun to share, great to stare

I like Scalectrix too - and the trains, actually... that's another topic for me altogether though!

I'm very lucky that the children love the lego - although they want me to build up some more trains, which means I need to get some more bricks...!

@Toby - I use whatever bricks we have - I don't get into the brands and comic-inspired stuff, although I have been known to use the odd bits with the buildings we have.  I like building things that the children want to play with though, as it tends to stand the test of time then.

Here's some pics of the old Lego table and a train we built:

Re: Lego - Fun to share, great to stare

the trains on lego run on electricity or are for display only? Interested as my dad in law is a big fan of miniatures and he'll probably ask Shocked
