Pics or it didn't happen. ;)


I got some of the instructions for the sets but my goal was to mainly rebuild the sets and save money doing it. Some of the instructions for sale are just way too expensive for the larger sets. i saw a few for 25$ just for a set of instructions. So I used Peeron for the online instructions.
I probably will pick up the instructions later when I see them for a reasonable price.

I didn't really want to collect them misb wheres the fun in having an unopened box on display. I like to play and display mine lol

Here's the Pics. http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=471055 . My sets really need some organising. The cupboard is a little bit cramped but they are all in there. There's also my MMV set up and a couple of custom figures mixed into the castles just to fill out the scenes.

sorry the pics are a bit large.

Thanks for all the Congratulations :D :D

Great minds think alike :D

I have recently reached the same goal, but also have a thing for boxes:

You probably wont care but....
After 2 years I've finally reached my goal to collect one of each of the Lego castle sets from 1984 to 1992. That's over 50 sets. Well its almost finished when I get my final piece on Monday - the black bird from the Kings Mountain Fortress. Very hard to find in Australia.

Good stuff guys. I think I'm pretty close doing this too, shall have to check Brickset again. Plus being in Brisbane, I feel your pain. I'm also after that range plus the Dark Forest stuff. I'm about 6 sets shy but three of them are large ones like the Mountain Fortress and a few small ones.

I'm trying to reach almost the same goal, while I will probably pass the little sets, and some others that contains mainly a fig that was in a larger set, as the king or majisto, for example.
Also, the stunning current sets will grab my whole budjet for some time, so classics will wait a little. I'm dragging around in my family and friends to gather random parts, and cleaning/brightening my whole bricks collection.
