Last trip to the Store, I got an Fire Bomb, a Slug and a Mantis, I wanted to buy the Weapon's Pre-igniter, but I was 5 scrap short.

Damn. I think I picked it up for $10 here. Probably not worth $15 though.

Over the past couple of days I have received a metric shit ton of bricks from various suppliers, and will probably need another two metric shit tons in order to complete my SHIP.

Oh, and I got a few more minifigs to make up its crew.

To answer my own question: They're moving to a spot in Stittsville, somewhere in the crotch of the trans-canada highway. Oh well.

As my last lot of loot was a pile of bricks and five crew, I had better show you what I am turning my loot of bricks into.

Provisionally called the Smutty Shark:

Thanks.

I am worried about it becoming a little :boxy: at the front so am thinking about how to sculpt that a bit. Kinda like I did with the back engine section.

Smutty Shark, eh? She will need a carved topless mermaid adorning the boy, then.

I am sure I can arrange something along those lines, if I can find a way of attaching a minifig to the front without bluetac or glue. I wish there was a plate 1x4 with 3 studs and a hole where the fourth should be - that would be ideal. Just stick the neck post through the hole...

So like this only a little longer and narrower?

Best way to get that would be to take a 1x4, cut off the 3rd stud and drill it out, alas....

yeah just like that. I might have to commit Lego Heresy and do just that. I got shed loads of reddish brown 1x4 plates so I can sacrifice one for the greater good.

Yeah, I did that last June. Lots of paperwork involved, isn't there? It is nice though - I have a room in the basement that I'm getting prepped to be the Lego room! :)

Just don't do what I did and try to speed-paint 3 rooms in a 100+ degree heat wave with only a cheap (and woefully underpowered) window AC unit... I pulled half the muscles in my back, but damned if I didn't get those rooms painted! Then I got to sleep for 36 hours after the doctors gave me the 3 V's (Vicodin for the pain, Valium to relax the muscles in my back, and an enforced day of Vacation because the two meds knocked me out cold for 36 hours).

i wish the basement was large enough for a dedicated Lego room, its only about 120 sqft. basically, it started as a dirt cellar and the previous owner put in a concrete floor and cinder block walls. its only large enough for the water heater and the furnace :( although, i might dig out more later on, even if only to be able to reinforce the stone foundation and add storage space..

i will use the sitting room/bedroom outside of the master bed room as my lego room. just gotta get rid of the shag carpet first, eww. well, that and rewire the house, lol. the lego collection will be one of the last things i move over, i might need to rent a u-hual for that, lol.
