Hi folks.

Some of you may recall that I collect Lego sets. I buy them in job lots then use a variety of online sellers to buy any replacement parts I may need to complete them. This is really time-consuming but worthwhile as I estimate I'm making about 30% profit on my purchases - much better that the fraction of 1% I would make if I left my money in the bank.

Anyway, with most of the job lots I buy, there are Lego type pieces from other manufacturers included. While a lot of them are compatible and fit with Lego, I obviously can't use them in my sets as my sets are described as 100% Lego in order to keep their value. Having accumulated a boxful of parts, I thought it would be fun to see what I could create using them, plus some Lego parts and oddments from my spares box.

For what it's worth, this is what I ended up with:

I remember saying a few weeks ago that I had some Sci Fi builds in progress, but I can't remember who I told. Senility again I'm afraid!
