    The toilet seems an odd choice seeing as thereís no lawyer minifig.

    Iím also wondering if that piece to price ratio is the best for a liscenced set

    I love the toilet too. When you gotta go you gotta go. Why no jeep though? Seems like a massive oversight to miss that out.

    Lego are just continually hitting it out the park at the moment with sets that I want.

    I'm off to Legoland in Denmark come Saturday. I dread the shop.. especially given the weak swedish crown.

    😱😱😱

    Building this with my eldest at the moment on holiday.

    https://www.lego.com/en-us/themes/creator/products/sunshine-surfer-van-31079

    Quite a fun little build and was only about £20 or so on amazon. Plus can reconstruct it as two other builds which is good as heís not one for free play. Like me.

    @THFourteen that's a great set. Most of those creator sets are brilliant - my wife really liked the ice cream shop one

    "Lawyer" minifig?! That's Donald Gennaro!

    And to be fair, he's probably the easiest character to make up out of spare parts.

    Disclaimer: /is a lawyer

    Iím impressed my almost 5 year old managed to build 90% of it himself as itís 8-14. This probably means he could easily start helping me with my own backlog, only problem is prying the finished models out of his greasy fingers.

    It's amazing how quickly they can get really good at building. Both of my boys (7 & 9) can build pretty much anything outside of the Technic stuff.

    My youngest managed to step in to build a big chunk of Slave 1 when I wasn't looking...

    Fortunately, most of the stuff I buy for myself is the big Technic stuff :)

    In the last 3 weeks, I have built a lot of stuff that has arrived and others brought down from loft as I have a shed to store the finished articles:

    Ninjago city
    Ninjago docks
    Destinyís bounty
    Helicarrier
    UCS slave 1
    Jedi starfighter with ring
    Metalbeardís sea cow
    And a lot of city artic and city volcano

    Itís been long overdue, but the backlog feels barely dented.

    My son just got Destiny's Bounty for his 9th birthday. Sadly he can build it all by himself. It looks fantastic.

    I'm sooo Kris of your building bonanza. Especially Ninjago City with the docks...

    @Boom I'd love to have the Ninjago city and docks as one big piece! I'm guessing you have them attached?

    The bounty is brilliant, one of my favourite sets in recent years. Nice interesting building techniques as well.

    I've been tempted to get N city before it gets discontinued, and add the docks. But I have no where to display it.

    Hmmmm my son is really into marvel at the moment, having played through Marvel Superheroes and now onto Marvel Avengers (LEGO) games on the PC.

    But wary of spoiling him, both mine are already stupidly spoilt to be honest.

    @up_the_ante Yes I have attached them and you can choose which 1 of the 2 sides the docks face when attached. Bounty parked in front with Metalbeardís ship.

    I have recently put up a shed/man-cave and begun displaying my stuff.

    My loft is full of stuff I have never had the opportunity to build and display.

    Almost finished Batmanís Tumbler and I think iíll begin on the new UCS Millennium Falcon next.

    When I get a moment and iíll upload some photos.

    Truth is my missus booted me out of my man cave 1.0 in the house which was roughly a 4m x 1.5m room and took it over. I had some of this stuff like the Death Star and Cloud City already built. Shed was finished a month ago and I have been assembling the shelving and the playing table over the last month.

    I still have a few remaining items to bring in: tv and sofa, but first I have to pay the missusí external decking and landscaping bill in the Autumn.

    Anyway the shed is a good isolation chamber when the kids want to build or I want to get away from them!
