Pit Stop

I meant to create some kind of pit stop for cars, and instead I created this weird scifi scene.
Not sure exactly what goes on here, but maybe it’s some kind of border check for vehicles.

I think it’s a bit over-engineered with too much stuff going on.
Also this website now has a Lego category, fittingly.

Cool Cars

Here’s some more Lego MOCs.
I’m really happy with how the bone car turned out. I managed to get quite a lot of detail in there without it looking too crazy.

The EBF5 battle demo is on Kongregate for Kong+ members btw. Everyone else will get it in a few days.

Resting Ninja

I spent most of the weekend on Lego, here’s an original build that I’m quite proud of.

I’m also learning to use a proper camera again just to get decent photos of my Lego. I forgot how much better the lighting looks compared to a phone.

Collecting Useless Junk

Lately I’ve started some new collections, and I’m wondering how long I’ll have fun with them before they turn into problems. A year ago I got back into Lego, but I’ve already gotten bored of the new stuff, and have specifically started collecting 90s sci-fi Lego. I got a few Aquazone subs, and I’ll probably continue with those. But all this Lego is taking up shelf space, and I know my love for it won’t last forever.  (I’ve already totally forgotten about my Amiibos, after collecting around 50 of them…)

I also picked up the Samorost 3 Vinyl, since the art is so pretty. I haven’t played the game yet, but I’ll get round to that soon. Earlier this year Ronja got me the Hello Internet podcast vinyl, so this is turning into a bit of a collection too.

I’ve got this weird relationship with stuff, where collecting it gives me massive pleasure, but I also know that at some point it’ll just be wasting space and collecting dust. I tell myself I’ll give it to some deserving kids later, but chances are it’ll just go into storage because I don’t want to let go completely. That’s life I guess.

Christmas of Dog

Hey guys! Hope you’ve all had a good Christmas!
I spent 3 days playing with Lego and dogs. I can’t really ask for anything more than that.
My parents and my brother each got a puppy, and they’re all temporarily living together, so it’s crazy over there.

Our landlord gave me and Ronja a big box of snacks and wine, which was unexpected. I guess that’s a good way of getting us to stay around. Only got a Christmas card from one of the neighbours despite giving them out to everyone, so it looks like only our nextdoors are cool people. Everyone else is obviously a scumbag.

The Steam Winter sale has also been treating me well. EBF4 is 3 years old on Steam, and thousands of people are still buying it for some reason. Thanks everyone!

I’m gonna start reading all the comments on the Christmas giveaway, and emailing the winners. It might still take a few days, as there’s a LOT to read there.

I got all sorts of Lego, from up to 20 years ago! Look at the difference there

Birthday Celebrations

So about a week ago it was my 26th birthday. I’m not usually a big birthday guy – I’m not excited about getting older, especially now that I’ve crossed the line from growing up, to growing old. Biologically it’s all downhill for me from here. I figured instead of trying to ignore my birthday like I usually do, I’d try to enjoy it. So I bought a pile of Lego and binged on it for 4 days.

I’m quite big on the Lego City stuff right now, so I got a nice little collection of it going. The space shuttle is really cool.

new legos

I also got my big box of childhood Legos out from the attic, and with some help from my family we sorted it all out by color, so that maybe we could actually build something from the mess.

lego boxesI looked up the instructions of some of my favourite sets online, and managed to build these two submarines! 20 years after I first got them, they are whole again! Some of the pieces are a bit damaged, but they still look pretty good. Lego seems to be real close to invincible. I might try and make a few more of these old sets at some point – it was a lot of fun trying to piece together something so ancient.
subsNow with my birthday over I’ll be taking a long break from buying Lego – probably until my next birthday. I don’t want it cluttering my house and getting dusty on my shelves. I am however considering trying out a Lego renting service – that’s a thing that seems to exist, and would suit my need well. I get to build stuff and I don’t have to worry about what I’m gonna do with the stuff afterwards. I’m interested to see how that goes.
