    Sheesh. When I was putting mine together, I used a dark grey 2x4 plate as a stand for one of my Stormtroopers in the pics, and I forgot about it and spent probably 20 minutes looking for it. I was SURE the gnomes had taken it.

    [face_laugh] I hate when that happens TK-4752. [face_laugh]

    I got it last night before I had to go to the Jail for clinical and started putting it together. Then I had to leave for the Jail from 1800-2230, came home, and after ranting and raving for a bit about how one of the nurses was being a freak, started building it again.

    All I remember is at 0230 I was holding one of the Snowtrooper minifigs and then I woke up an hour later curled up on the floor asleep next to my AT-AT.

    I need help...I really do. [face_laugh]

    Gonna go finish it here in a bit.

    My Millenium Falcon is done as well and holds a place of honor in my collection. I [face_love] it!

    My newest installment of Legos has been the Flash Speeder and the new Mini Building Sets which include the Falcon, AT-AT, Y-Wing Fighter, MTT, and Republic Gunship. They are bigger than the last mini set, but still mini. VERY :cool:!

    I don't know if you all have seen them yet so here you go:

    Mini Millenium Falcon

    Mini AT-AT

    Mini Republic Gunship

    Mini MTT

    When you buy those four, the pieces for a free Mini Y-Wing Fighter come with them.

    The first step is to admit that you have a problem.

    You could always go to that ebay auction. There's a guy selling his entire collection, and he has almost everything.

    Holy cow Wenchy, that's a LOT of Legos! I thought I had a bunch.

    So let me ask anyone who dares answer, (I have quite the collection myself so don't take this the wrong way), but what do you do with them once you've built them? Is there some grand purpose in them other than stimulating our creativity and satisfying our craving for anything Star Wars? Do you use them as props for role playing? Has anyone ever made a Brick Flick (a Lego movie - it's like clay-mation only with legos)? Mine are currently in hiding, it keeps my wife from knowing what a child I really am.

    crazybirdman: For now...just for now. :D

    Webb: :D Why do I get a kick out of you sayin' that? [face_laugh] :D [face_devil]

    Master-Yulen-Ood: [face_shocked] What do you do with them? You build them, put them in a place of glory and honor, you dust them, you polish them, you hide behind locked doors caressing them and playing with them, you dream of them, you....

    **Cough**

    Ummm...you just look at 'em...yeah. ;)



    Hey, we really should get all of our collections together and make a movie...that would be soooo fun!

    Yes!! FanFilm with LEGOS!! We'll make some LEGO mini-figs of PFF members, and have them dub in their own voices! :)

    Count me in on the Lego Fan Film!! That would be sweet! brickfilms.com is a good site for resources and links to free software for stop motion animation for the pc user - I only have a mac as of yet.

    HOODY HOO! That sounds awesome Webb!

    I'll have to check out the software for this.

    This could be a real possibility!

    :D

    WOOHOO! I finally got my AT-AT! I settled on just one for now, hehe. Also picked up 2 new Bionicles, the mini AT-AT & Falcon! Birdman is happy.

    If you want to make a LEGO movie why not just use the LEGO movie studios set? Seems like it would be a good idea. Plus a little bird told me it was 1/2 off at the LEGO store in Anahiem. Actually, all of the studio sets are 1/2 off. I should go get Spiderman. . . bye.

    Hey Birdman, if you really want to know the answer to that question If you want to make a LEGO movie why not just use the LEGO movie studios set? you should really go to the site I mentioned above. The folks there have competitions and awards for their flicks and are really into it and have learned a few things in the process. They suggest that the Lego Studios stuff will work and it has worked for many people. However, even the Lego employees used other stuff to create shorts to advertise the product. I think it was a resolution issue, but I'm not sure. A while ago they had a short SW one up - it was cool! At any rate, the folk at brickfilms.com recommend a digital camcorder or a webcam (CCD is better than CMOS) and alternative software for best results. They also have a wealth of information and tutorials, including tips on bluescreening and adding special effects (like maybe lighsaber blades or blaster shots).
