This is the first Christmas where I actually got a lot of Lego that is not Bionicle, and I thought I would share what I got with the rest of the MOCpages community. You know, to make you wish you had it. ;P
First is the biggest and best one that I got from my aunt. Behold, the Castle themed "Tower Raid".
Besides being big and awesome, it came with a ton of great parts! Lots of brown tiles, some cool wood pieces, good wheels, and a hand full of castle minifigs (if you have seen my Mumak, you would know I am in desperate need of some).
Next is a Castle themed set, the "Troll Assault Wagon". Santa brought this one for me.
This one's not bad. It has some good pieces, (more minifigs and weapons) and it is pretty playable. My second favorite set this year.
Following that is the "Indiana Jones Motorcycle Chase", also from dear Saint Nick.
The set by itself is a bit bland. It has some good minifigs to be used in the future, but as a whole it is not that great. However, it comes with 2 motor cycles, which redeems it right there. I'm thinking of making some post-apoc things, and maby try my hand at my own War Doll (see Brian K.'s stuff).
Nest is the Indiana Jones "Jungle Duel" presented to me from my sister. Thanks sis!
This one's really a box of random parts. They are sort of cohesive, but not that much. However, most of the parts are very cool! My fav is the banana (can you say micro-scale-ship?), but I am not sure how I will be using the tent...
After that is the "Mini Construction" from my cousin! Thanks couz., I appreciate it!
I think this set came out back in '07, but I'm not complaining. It's got some nice pieces, and is fun to play with. I can not remember where I saw it, but somebody decided to try making one of these things still inside the bag. I tried it (but forgot to take pics) and it really is harder than it looks. Try it, it's a lot of fun.
My last set, this one from Chris Kringle. The "Coast Guard Kayak".
Santa's thought was to increase my minifig population. Not sure how I am going to use this thing, but I will somehow. I am liking the ore and that white piece, though.
So, I can not show pics of the sets assembled. I was too lazy to take pics while building, and once built I incorporated the parts into my regular collection. However, many of the good parts from "Tower Raid" are used in this WIP. It is going to end up being a better siege tower.
So, Merry (late) Christmas. Hope you all got Lego, too, and I would love to hear about it. Also, thoughts on the WIP, and constructive criticism would be great.
I'm starting to think this page will be a magnet for junk comments...
