I still regret I didn't get the 4 ft long Super Star Destroyer when in a moment of weakness my wife said yes.

Similar tale here... Had it in my hands at Legoland FL. I was on vacation with my kids and my girlfriend (now wife) wasn't with us. Put it back on the shelf.

When I got home, she berated me for not buying it.

The dragon is cool, does it move with a crank?

we're working on the family dinner scene first, but I'll let you know once we open that one.

The family dinner scene looks awesome. I wish there were more sets like that. It's a shame those Chinese New Year sets weren't sold in North America. Enjoy those sets.

What? The Dragon is not available in the US? Seriously?

First set is done! Overall a very lovely build with a lot of nice visuals and a clever mechanic for the lazy Susan, but surprisingly LEGO made two mistakes in piece placement on the table settings that required rice bowls to be moved over a peg.

Rad!

Just playing with legos trying to turn a dodge charger into the hell charger.

Finn just got out of a bacta tank so he is no help. Thinking about ripping it completely down and trying to add some hight to the body to clear ghost rider's flaming head. His flame head adds about two studs of hight to him. This is why there is currently a hole on top. I'm not sure how I'll do the flaming tires. Right now I just have trans orange hubcaps.

You need to grab the Ghostrider Minifigure!

...and selling them for absurdly high prices.

Yeah, those prices are ridiculous.

Oh I bought that as soon as it came out.

I love making designed sets so much, but I have no idea how to sate my hobby at a reasonable price.

That Chinese set is incredible. I really dig sets that represent human spaces. Houses, restaurants, etc.

Looks like a Stranger Things set is coming out.
Upside down around around you turn me

The setup: I send a pic of the ST set to my girlfriend...

My girlfriend says, "Holy ****!"
And then, "That is a lot of pieces, would you build it for me?"

I love it when a plan comes together.

I just got this in email and I am SOOOOO stoked! It will live next to my Saturn V. Great stuff!

Nice.
My son got the big hulk buster and it's pretty cool.
Sadly, my wife wouldn't let me send $800 on the millennium falcon.

Probably not a coincidence that a new lunar landing exhibit goes live at the museum of flight the same day. So cool!

I imagine it's for the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing.

Well, I just did it, I ordered the Lunar Lander set. Curse you Lego for making me need to give you my money!

All done! Totally worth it. Bonus: my pollen-covered deck table.

I need to venture farther into these forums, I just stumbled on this one! Thought I would share my current project.

I'm a huge Ghostbuster fan and have been wanting this set for a while. Unfortunately it went out of print a few months ago and I had missed my opportunity while waiting for the event I was waiting for to suss out. Luckily I was able to find it brand new online for a reasonable price. Been loving this build so far! To give an idea of the total size it's going to end up being about 3X that size. It's going to be huge and I absolutely can't wait to finish it!

Yeah that GB set has so many great details that encompass both original movies.

4108 pieces and a programmable control system? I'm in!

Been a while since I bought a Lego set. I built this this weekend while rewatching Into the Spiderverse and it made me wish that the nonsensical spider-mech was actually Peni Parker's mech -but the buildable Venom is pretty cool, and it's great to have a Ghost Spider (aka Spider-Gwen) figure.
