The new Coffee Corner obviously needs a new LEGO thread 😄 The big news in that department recently is that the largest set ever is no longer the Colosseum. The new number one is the Titanic. It's a really gorgeous set and it's huge. 9090 pieces in the (very large) box and the finished model is 135 cm long. Unfortunately, the price tag is equally huge: $629.99
Here's a picture of the set:

I'm still debating the type writer to be honest. Not sure I even have room for that let alone the Titanic!

I'm not getting this one; it's just too big. Looks very nice, though.

Space is definitely an issue. I've room for only this one up by my desk.

Are they pictures of disassembled apple gear or actual disassembled electronics? Either way I love them. I know, not lego... 🙂

Lego has a typewriter?! I'll have to go find that one.

I still need a bigger flat with room for a separate Lego room LOL, I want both the Taj Mahal and the huge Millennium Falcon.
In the meantime I enjoy the Brickheadz series.
Baby Yoda from the Mandalorian set is sooooo cute. Next up will be the Minions Brickheadz sets.
10-12-2021 1:27 AM
I really like the Brickheadz too. I've got a couple of Marvel ones and the Venkman and Slimer Ghostbusters one 🙂
Speaking of room, I've got a new desktop PC at home, which has what I consider a major design flaw: Unlike my old machine, the top of the case is not flat, so I can't place a LEGO set there 😄
10-12-2021 4:29 AM
Nice, these are pretty cool. I also have a chronic shortage of storage and display space for large sets. The Brickheadz are nice and small, so I have no excuse not to get at least the Mandalorian set 😋

My husband got me a lighted display cabinet for my Legos and a couple of other collections. The top shelf has the Yellow Submarine, Lunar Landing Module, and Women of Space collection.
(I had to split it into two images to get it small enough to upload...)
10-14-2021 4:09 AM
But you know the lunar landing was fake, right? Everyone in this flat Earth know it...
I'm sorry, but as a TENTE kid, I had to troll this Lego thread.
01-25-2022 1:09 AM
So does the class cabinet keep the dust off of them or is that just wishful thinking? I've even just noticed my Saturn V rocket is starting to "yellow" a little on the part that is hit by the sun 😞
01-25-2022 6:13 AM
Yes, it does keep most of the dust out. We have cats and there is always fur and dander around - we have to vacuum and dust frequently - but it doesn't end up in the cabinet.

A Lego cabinet is now on my wishlist 😊

I don't know, I feel the modern trend to make "sets" kind of detracts from the Lego experience. As a kid I had a mixed bag of bricks of all sorts, then it was up to me to make a ship or the door mechanism of a bus or .... whatever I could imagine and had the pieces for.
With sets you already know where you'll end up... to me it's a bit like assembling a puzzle without the additional effort 😛

As a kid, I would sneak into my brother's room and play with his Legos like that - my mom worked for a sporting goods store that sold toys, so he would get great sets for birthday and Christmas gifts.
I actually do a bit of both. I have a couple of sets of random bricks that I mess with on occasion, plus I have sets that I build for display.
01-24-2022 9:38 AM
Agree, abo. My kids had sets but then they all got dumped into a big tub after they assembled and tired of playing with the built set. I still have a ton of dis-assembled sets in that tub in my basement.
10-12-2021 1:37 PM
I have totes full of broken sets that belonged to me (dating back to the late 70's) and modern sets belonging to my kids that is just screaming my name. I want to do it. I have to do it! But my sanity is resisting that urge...
02-09-2022 3:26 PM
so, what approach do you think would even be feasible to sort and rebuild old sets? Get a ton of storage drawers, sort the bricks and then start assembling by the oldest to the newest? Lifetime project, I think!!

So can expect a Lego Mindstorms API coming to Steampunk soon? 😄
10-13-2021 5:25 AM
In my case I have combined two of my passions, lego and classic movie/series cars in small format (I don't have much space).
10-13-2021 5:28 AM
I'd kudo this 10 times if I could! Are those kits or just you and random blocks?
10-13-2021 12:43 PM
Some times I use random blocks with the design software, for example for the F1 Cars: https://www.bricklink.com/v3/studio/download.page
But I bought these three cars from the Lepin website, they are not 100% lego but the bricks are very similar:

Oh no there goes my allowance 🙈

Nice DeLorean 😄

This new collaboration between Raspberry Pi and LEGO Education looks pretty cool:
"The Raspberry Pi Build HAT fits any Raspberry Pi with a 40-pin GPIO header and lets you control up to four LEGO® Technic™ motors and sensors from the LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Portfolio, a flexible system with unlimited possibilities.
Build robust, intelligent machines that combine Raspberry Pi computing power with LEGO components."
There's a Python library available as well.

And just like that, more of my money went to Adafruit 🙂 Looking forward to playing with this. Thanks for the idea!

I always try to keep my sons (and my old childhood) legos out of my office, but my wife got me this 'desk' size guy that I can use to play while listening to conference calls.

The good people at LEGO insist on trying to ruin me... there's a new huge and very costly Star Wars AT-AT coming:
The price tag (800 USD) is kinda ridiculous, but it is a very nice set of probably my favourite Star Wars vehicle. There's a Gizmodo article up with 8 good (sort of) arguments for spending the money 🙂

I can safely look away, I’ve no room at for that - I have hinted at the Tron cycles and the 1950s Pickup truck for Christmas lol

My desk is to small.. but my little mate made it to
11-14-2021 1:45 AM
11-14-2021 5:41 AM
That is a really nice set! I'm guessing it took a good long while to build?

Perfect timing, TechEd keynote is starting and son shows up and says "can you fix it please?"

Disappointing not to immediately see LOTR sets there.
