Does anyone else get ridiculously excited when encountering a new piece for the first time?

Does anyone else get ridiculously excited when encountering a new piece for the first time?

sure do. i then buy many of them thinking "ima make something awesome with this look how cool it is" then realise i'm uncreative then throw it in it's designated drawer location. rinse. repeat.

My husband thinks I'm nuts when I run up to him squealing about how awesome a piece is, or how something just fits together so perfectly. He is kind and just smiles and nods, thankfully.

Edit: Also, this rotating sushi table is brilliant. Especially the way the arches are placed using that new brick!

Yes, but sometimes also sad to see that same pieces are almost exclusively for that set ....

Oh, I haven't seen any videos! I've been working on this on and off since Xmas. I only have a couple hours a week to work on it, so it's been going slow! I've also been working on putting the Ferris wheel together for my daughter.

Playing with colors in a new build I'm working on. Started out as a custom Kessel Run Falcon, but figured I might as well make a custom freighter out of it.

The result of two different teams in CEC's freighter department partying together.

Does kinda look like a Ghost/Falcon crossover, yeah!

It’s the lovechild of the ghost and the falcon

I love it, mate.

Barad-dur is its name, this looks incredible! :D

One does not simply build Mordor.

How many 10237 did you need? Brilliant build, thanks for sharing.

....and now let's build Mordor....

Rollercoaster

This is going to be so fucking expensive.

I believe there was a rumored price for it: 320€ and 385$.

I don't know if the rumor still stands. I wonder how big the whole coaster is, since this picture only shows us the middle.

Sooooo many 2x2 round bricks. This feels extremely elementary and unnecessarily part-intensive. It also feels like a dated MOC technique from the 80s.

Doubled Technic beams would be a far better option.

It looks like the rumored coaster we were getting.

My boyfriend loves to build but is too shy to share them here, so I did it for him :)

Both of us like collecting them. If there's a gem in a set we move it to our collection. There just happened to be exactly as many gems as pillars so we used the opportunity :)

Is there a story behind these gems?

Leave this place.

The Orient Expedition temple was one of my very first sets. I remember showing it to a Chinese family friend and smiling at what the Danes thought Chinese architecture looked like.

Wow that’s sharp looking!

I wish I had the time money to do projects like this :)

FTFY

That's absolutely stellar.

Good on ya, man.

That's amazing! I wish I had the time to do projects like this :)

This looks really nice, great job!

Sorting by color is always fun

This is so beautiful. You made something organic and relaxing to look at. I want it on my wall.

Dormammu, I've come to bargain!

u/theletterlthreetimes gave a girl in his Malagasy village a small lego set. She came back and asked if what she made was “okay”.

Lego should boderline be a human right for children! Not many things I can think of that translate so well to any culture or language or living situation that can offer so much to children.

The way i understand it cross posting like you did is essentially his this person's own post.

What?

Ive heard of being able to donate Legos to villages overseas, what an awesome thing to do for those kids

Broke my “no LEGO Star Wars” rule with this set! God help me :)

You chose one of the best sets to break your rule with. The Ewok Village is my all time favorite. Congrats.

I collect mainly Modular and City stuff, I’m out or space already. I love Star Wars, but there are so many LEGO Star Wars to collect and there will be so much more. That’s why I had managed to look the other way till now :)

Just curious why is that your rule?

My rule is only Star Wars Lego. Still need this one though!

I don’t have the originals so I made a X-Wing and Millennium Falcon with spare parts

THIS IS HOW YOU LEGO!

I love this, well done.

Thank you. I did the X-Wing it with my 4 year old son. Now he’s asking to watch Luke Skywalker and the Death Star scene on repeat.

Just a time well spent.

The look like cannon uglies...

Look it up before you think im insulting you...

Its pretty cool in my opinion.....

X wing actually looks neat in black and red
