"The kids are really getting into Lego" "Really? Cause we have a set in the basement my kids never opened. You want it?"

"The kids are really getting into Lego" "Really? Cause we have a set in the basement my kids never opened. You want it?"

wtf else did those kids have to play with that they never wanted to open this?

This blows my mind, too. How spoiled do you have to be that you just didn't get around to playing with a certain toy? I can understand not playing with it for very long or like... maybe they got started on the first part but it was too difficult for them... but the kids had to at least be moderately interested in Lego if someone bought them a $150 Lego set and they were so disinterested that they didn't even OPEN it.

thinking about it more though, when i was between 5 and 10, i wouldn't have been particularly excited about building a department store either-- give me the space fighter jets and pirate warships

i probably would have at least opened this and used some of the pieces though

Obviously now you have to build it yourself.

That one sounds too much like a Cinemax parody.

I made a Horizon Zero Dawn LEGO set!

I loved playing through HZD, and after seeing some awesome LEGO MOCs from the game, I just had to give it a try!

Credits to Wayne de Beer and CBBricks for the instructions – I really hope they continue to post guides for their creations (I need a Thunderjaw)!

I bought all the parts from sellers on Brick Owl. The whole project cost about £50; if I had planned better, I probably could have reduced the total cost (I had to buy from multiple sellers), but I’m still very happy with the outcome considering how much some official Lego sets are (not that we are ever going to get an official HZD set!).

Hope you like! :)

I got a tattoo today

I got a tattoo today

Don't post it to /sub/tattoos , you'll be sorry.

Should have had the same tattoo on the lego tattoo matching where you got the tattoo.

Yes, but even I can tell you the linework is terrible. A great concept, sure, but not so great execution.

Bunch of keyboard experts in there, to be sure. I've seen them tear apart incredible work, and praise some generic, unoriginal, simplistic turds.

A kid walked into the lego store and started to build a tanker vessel. When he had to leave a bunch of other kids finished his concept and it looks awesome.

It's okay to admit you're a grown man who went into a Lego store and built a tanker, then took a picture because you're proud of it. We won't mind here.

Nah man I would tell you if it was me. Promise

Lego store seems like such a fun place to work. Unfortunately need to pay bills :(

Retail so probably very close to minimum wage.

And you need a middle class income to feed the Lego addiction and still have a roof over your head.

It already is! Album can be found here

Wow. That is a lot of detail. Can't wait to see the finished project as a whole!

Each time I build a MOC it gets slicker and I think it looks really good and then I see something like this and think man mine suck

And it's fantastic!

Oh, that Skylab is beautiful.

Feel free to name everything on the picture. :)

Only available at Billund airport, Denmark

I gotta say I both love it for the concept and find it hideous in the execution.

It's not one of there best design but I had to get it for my collection!

Oh Billund, home to Lego. One of the most dreadful airports I've ever been to, though.

is that yellow piece on the right way?

100% Bamboozle. I'm just sitting here smoking weed and jerking off to memes. I've never been to California and have no intention of changing that.

The center piece should have been the bat symbol. I'm going to make one and replace it BRB

I respect your honesty

No bamboozle?

My Lego Portal minifig display

My Lego Portal minifig display

In the absence of an official Lego Portal set I decided to make my own, mostly inspired by u/fastlindyrick who posted a cool display a year ago link here.

Modifications on u/fastlindyrick’s original design include: (i) More ovid portals, (ii) The official Chell, portal gun and companion cube from the Lego Dimensions level pack, (iii) An extension of the display featuring a button and cube receptacle, (iv) A test chamber sign featuring custom stickers for the tiles thanks to u/alfodr see here, (v) Glados’ ever watchful eye, (vi) Mirrors behind the portals to create a recursive effect (originally suggested by u/itchyd) These were from a cheap ladies’ compact mirror I brought from Ebay, and lastly (vii) Two cheap light kits from AliExpress to light up the portals.

Any other suggestions welcome!

All I could suggest is taking the blue end off the portal gun. I find it looks WAY better with just a hole.

This is really cool.

Does LEGO still make the touch sensors for Mindstorms? A great next-level project would be to make the floor button interactive using one of those. Build a weighted companion cube filled with some ball bearings to weigh down the switch, then have it connected to a motor that opens a door.

Not sure how that stuff works anymore – I haven't played around with touch sensors and motors since the first Mindstorms set came out. It would probably be a challenge.

That's just me though; I like my builds to have some interactivity in them.

This is amazing!
