Day #3846Title: Science Fiction Comes Alive
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: A few weeks ago I got the LEGO Creative Personalities (40291) as a Gift With Purchase set. The original featured Hans Christian Andersen writing a book on a bench with a little boy looking at a swan on a pond on the other side. The inner parts of the page were on a standard 6×8 plate, which of course cried out for customisation. So Hans and his little friend have been removed (and kept in a safe place) and instead, this is my own creation showing an astronaut at the controls of his space ship, navigating the stars.

Day #3845Title: Fractured
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Apparently England were playing in a kickyball match today. I don’t follow football, not even for the World Cup, but I gather we lost the semi-final and won’t be gunning for gold. Funnily enough, I took this before the match had finished, but don’t blame me for the result! It does annoy me how the country apparently pulls together as one over some sporting every now and then, but can’t seem to get a handle of the Brexit Omnishambles. So this was more a metaphor for the state of the country than any kind of commentary on the Three Lions.

Day #3843Title: On Show Again
Location: Shepherd’s Bush
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I’m delighted to report that some more of my Micropolis models have gone on display in the Community Showcase, this time at the LEGO Brand Retails Store in Westfield at Shepherd’s Bush.  There are some blocks of flats which sit right next to a large, polluting factory!

Day #3841Title: Brain The Size Of A Planet…
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: The London AFOLs group has a Brickheadz-themed meetup next Monday and we have been encouraged to make Brickheadz of our own and bring them along to the meeting. As well as taking along mine and Alistair’s alter egos, I decided to see what else I could come up with. Thus was born my rendition of the 1981 classic BBC TV Show version of Marvin The Paranoid Android from the Hitch-Hikers’ Guide To The Galaxy. He was characterised by a huge protruding brow, big nose and slanting, sad, red eyes. I gave him a spanner (since he was always complaining of being asked to perform frivolous menial tasks when he has a brain the size of a planet) and Arthur Dent’s cup of tea. I think I have caught his Genuine People Personality quite well here. I’m now thinking about making some of the other characters from the show. Watch this space.

Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Stormie and Darth wanted me to take their picture for today’s shot. How could I refuse? I liked these two commercial Brickheadz sets when I first saw them and was pleased to pick them up from the Leeds LEGO store at the weekend.

Day #3834Title: A Visit To Bones Circus
Location: Manchester Central
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: After spending much of yesterday on busy roads, I abandoned my car and took the train to Manchester today, to visit Bricktastic 2018, a big LEGO show at Manchester Central. There were loads of inspiring models to look at, and plenty of friends (new and old) to chat with. All in all, a grand day out. This was a fantastic MOC showing a spooky haunted fun fair and circus with many moving parts including this carousel and a motorcycle Wall of Death! I didn’t catch the builders’ names but it was a family who had put it all together. It makes a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #32 – Fun Fair.

Day #3829Title: Monthly MOC – June
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I recently acquired a load of mermaid fishtails, so thought I better make use of them as architectural features in a Micropolis build. Thus, Mermaid House was born. A good example for Treasure Hunt Theme #6 – June Monthly Project.
