    Thanks :)

    I made the All Star zombie last night:

    I'm having fun building these! Next up is the Chomper plant, then the Pea Shooter plant. Hopefully my BL order will arrive today.

    Here is some art from the game so those who don't know Plants vs Zombies can see what it is I'm trying to reproduce:

    This would be your best bet : http://brickingaround.com/

    Also there is a bunch of Facebook Buy / Swap / Sell groups. But they are basically ebay prices, and not many bargains to be found.

    what age do you think lego (not duplo) is suited for? my little cousin is obsessed with iron man and thinking of getting him some of the Marvel lego sets but he's only 3 1/2

    Get him some, but maybe save it til he's another yearish older? I guess it really depends on his specific habits, does he still try to eat small stuff?

    Get him something more friendly to his age in the meantime if not. (simply thinking about the way the cost of these things goes up over time)

    They sell Lego Junior which might be more suited to your little cousin. It all works with Lego as well when they're older so that may be the best solution.

    Purchased a UCS Slave I today. Technically I paid nothing for it since I used some of the $1000 voucher I won at my company Christmas party on the weekend :D

    That AT-AT is pretty epic! Amazing that it stands up too, with all that weight.

    Nearly finished my "Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare" build. One more character to go. I'm pretty happy with how they've turned out so far.

    Weirdest thing is, I dont really have much in the way of Lego - Ive always thought it would be good fun to muck around with but every time Id look at it Id think "But where would I display it?".

    The fact that I now have a 3 month old boy has given me a good excuse though!

    My wife and kids have got me a few lego kits over the last 12 months, I did the Tie Interceptor a few months ago and the other two in the last few days over xmas. Its such a relaxing activity when you build lego without the kids helping!
