    Don’t forget they also sell lego in other countries that are considerably hotter than the U.K.

    Don't do what I did and build one of the suffs backwards so the wheels turn towards each ither:rolleyes::p, had to dismantle and rebuild. Fun build though. In other lego news we're doing legpland for 2 nights in August. Coming in at 930 quid as staying in the hotel:eek:, I'm not sure whether it will be busy or not.

    Tempted with the Crocodile at that price, but I’ve bought so many sets recently!

    Yep, and it's 150 quid more to stay in the castle resort. Legoland has always been pricey though and the way I see it is that it's cheaper than centreparcs:D. Wonder if they'll have any discounted models:p.

    With staycations very likely for most of the country this year, Legoland is going to be veryyy busy in August. Staying in the Hotel gives you access to their "all inclusive" fastpass system though I think, so in theory queues shouldn't be too much of an issue for you.

    ECTO-1 10274 is a beast. Some of the building techniques are rather interesting, but it makes for a very fragile model. Here it is next to 21108.
    Tempted to buy a second one for "investment purposes" as it's the equivalent of €130 on amazon...

    Just spent the weekend building barracuda bay. Was a nice build and first time I’ve had a bag to not open, bag 15 is only if you are forming the actual ship and I’m leaving it as the wreck.

    I’ll grab a pic when I get it in situ.

    Missed out before and feels like it's getting towards end of life

    I'm surprised you haven't received it. You'd think they'd fulfil existing orders before putting it back up
