    My first attempt at a Lego stop motion build.

    I'm calling it... a learning experience.

    I've learnt that I need to concentrate on focussing better, I need to use a plain white background, I need to make sure the lighting's consistent and I need to make sure that everything actually stays in the frame!

    Ah well. Things can only improve.

    Really liked it. Aside from the few points you mention, that was a great first attempt.

    I especially liked seeing all of the pieces shuffle into view before being assembled :)

    Aye, I think about 47 frames into it I would have given up. Good way to make your set last a lot longer though!

    About to get started on Minecraft, which the kid found in a book store and wisely spent some of her Xmas money on.

    That Minecraft is well cool. Seriously recommended if you're into both subjects.

    It also made up for the missing pieces from my Firehall, (Lego is sending them from Denmark...) Ignoring the missing pieces that 2300 piece set had, like, nine spares. The 480 Minecraft set came with 42, including a spare each of the two pieces that make up Steve's face. Not enough blue for his trousers though, so we have a Steve and a dwarf Steve.

    Good stuff boo.

    Anyone get lucky in Tesco? A couple of other bargains they have: 4204 The Mine at 41 and series 8 minifigs at 1.25. *None of these bargain prices are marked on the shelves by the way, but they do scan through at them*. All I could find in my local were 7345 Transport Chopper for 12 and 7346 Seaside House for 17. Good prices for a stock of uncommon colours, but nothing like the bargains our Northern friends are getting :/

    I went to my local Tesco Extra (Crawley) and they didn't have much in. There is one more store which is near Gatwick airport which I might try tomorrow. If I see anything and the stock is good I don't mind buying extra sets for people on here.

    Good work boo! Like others have said I'd given up after a few minutes.

    Minecraft LEGO in thaw bookstores eh? What an interesting world we live in.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Amazing set. Great build. The design is superb. Brilliant colors, great mini figures, great set. Best one I have. Thoroughly recommend it before lego.com decides not to sell it any more.

    So which set is it?
    Batman, obviously, but what's it called and what's the set number?

    Looks cool!

    Just picked up Gandalf Arrives from our local Tesco, but I think the price was fairly average (11).

    there was nothing in my tesco. Some of the Star Was sets had a fiver off, like Anakin's Interceptor, but it was still 30 for quite a small set.

    Anyway, i was just went home and made this out of what i had :)

    Thanks. i built from menory and looking at pictures of the real ship in the cold light of day shows that the nicelles arent high enough, so ill fix that tonight.

    lego is just so cool! out of interest how do you keep yours? mine just gets broken up after a while and all mixed in together. i sort it out into shapes, sizes and types and store it all in compartment boxes (though atm its just in a huge heap on my attic floor! :)

    My old Skool space lego (1980s-mid1990s) is all bagged in sets - spent a few weeks building everything and buying all of the missing pieces. Star Wars lego was stored as completed models, but spent a day over Christmas breaking it down and separating large and small pieces Into different boxes. Reading this thread along with the Lego ideas book I got for Christmas has really inspired me to start building again.

    I just need the time and space to do it :)

    @ZuluHero There's too many articles on the subject, but it comes down to how big your collection is and if you store sets or you're a builder (you seem like me, a builder, so you'll be wanting to organise your elements).

    You'll basically need to stock up on freezer/ziplock bags, stackable tupperware, fishing tackle/jewellery boxes with adjustable compartments and ideally some diy cabinets (the metal type with transparent draws). A lot of this stuff can be bought cheaply at pound shops and ebay. Many people advocate the stacking method to organise, but this can affect the clutch of the elements over time. If you're just starting out, organise by part type first, then colour. Prepare for Lego to take over your house :p

    Yeah, i already use big stanley compartment boxes and sort bu size, shape and type. a have a pretty big collection, ill take a photo later when i get home.

    my daughter has one of those big lego head storage boxes, shaped like a lego mans head, and im really jealous of it, though i dont think i could go back to it all being kept in one big box!

    I spent a few weeks organizing my Lego. I've got sets from the late 70s onwards. Tried to build up most of the sets from the last five years while separating out bricks by general characteristics, (yellowed by smoke or not).

    Then I was told to sort out the mess and give the room back. Then the Lego boxes were used by the kid and friends. Dispair.

    I think the full sorting will have to wait till we get a larger house with a Lego room :)

    If you guys want to start keeping track of your collections, I'd strongly recommend registering at www.brickset.com They have an almost comprehensive database of Lego sets and merchandise. It'll let you keep track of things like total sets you have (unique and duplicate), total number of pieces, number of unique minifigs and how much your collection is worth (at rrp). Very useful resource.

    Once you've got your collection on brickset, you can import it to www.rebrickable.com to see what other official Lego sets you can build using the pieces in your current collection.

    Done. Can't build anything else 100% but it's a great resource.

    Took Short-Round's advice and registered at brickset.com
    Bad idea!
    There is so much stuff I want to buy now, and I keep going off to ebay to look at the Ultimate Collector's Edition of the Millennium Falcon.

    That's more than my first car cost!

    /goes back for one more look
