I'll take some photos hopefully this weekend of some frames next to the buildings and post them here.

That would be awesome, if you include a 7p standing in front of one of the buildings that would be excellent.

I've got one of those sitting in with a couple other small sets. Hopefully I'll get to them over the holidays.

I'll have to give that one a look. Currently I'm sitting on a new GSfP post, waiting for a few Bricklink inventories to be posted.

(The Minifigs in it were awesome as well.)

Hey, can someone tell me how big the One Ring is? Is it a single, double-sided stud?

Use the magnifier and see that it appears to be a 2-stud-deep, female coupling. Which would be a hell of a useful piece, come to think of it....

A lot like the tube plate, minus the plate. Which might be mindblowingly useful.

It is! The connection isn't ironclad, but it still is awesome.

The clownfish polybag is on sale at my local Five Below for $3.99. I realize that's not a great deal, but I was shocked to see an actual LEGO product there while I was buying cheap Valentine's stuff for my daughters. I didn't buy any but will probably do so tomorrow as it has boat studs, something I don't own any of, and more 1x1 plates with clips, which you can always use more of. Plus, I like orange.

Also, the Harry Potter Mini Hogwarts Express was on the peg next to the clownfish for $4.99. Has a lot of red cheese slopes.

At $0.07 per piece, that's not a bad price. Occasionally 5 Below has small sets and polybags in stock. Generally they're better known for having the collectible minifigs.

I'll have to check out the one near my house pretty soon.

Stumbled upon set 75013 surfing around bricklink. Pretty high "MF0 parts density" and the MSRP of $50 with 493 parts (474 + 3 minifigs) is really close to $0.10/part.

It also makes for a sweet mobile artillery platform as is, for those who like "hero/boss" unit rules.

Or just make it derelict and use it as battlefield decoration :D I'm just imagining a battlefield with those big legs scattered about the central pod's wreckage with a frame team using it as cover

Has anyone mentioned the "Clone Troopers vs. Droidekas" set? Number 75000
http://www.google.com/imgres?q=lego+set ... =151&ty=77

It comes with all sorts of goodies for building frames.

The mini-modular set is actually way too small for use with standard 7p scale MFZ. It would, however, be ideal for 3 or 4p scale. Which conveniently, is the scale I always used to play in. The set itself is actually really nice and a joy to put together. The one disadvantage is that I keep having to tell visitors it's not actually my original design.

Cheers,
Malc

Set 31001 is a fantastic source of parts. I got two and I might need to grab some more.
