For my next build, I'm going to try something from the LEGO Architecture series. This one is the Sydney Opera House (21012).
Now the LEGO Architecture models are a bit different than many of the other LEGO sets. They tend to be a bit more expensive. There are no mini-figures. They don't have any play-action features. They look more polished and are intended to be display pieces. It is a different style than the other LEGO playsets. I think they are neat, but they are not for everyone.
This should be an interesting build. Being an Architecture model, it doesn't have many standard LEGO bricks. There are a lot of smooth tiles and I will need to find something to do with those large white slope pieces. There are a lot of hinge pieces which may help. Maybe I could make a hand using the white slopes as parts of a finger. There might be a cool spaceship there. It would be nice if I could keep that display base in tact.
We'll see what I can come up with in the next post.
Speaking of Australia, there is a cool website based down under called REBRICKABLE. It has a large database of LEGO sets (official and custom builds) that you can cross-reference with sets you own to find new things to build. I'll be putting instructions for my sets there as I build them. Check them out.
