    Just received my birthday gift from my Son / Daughter in Law.
    It's a tad early but had to share it here, how cool is this for a mini freak. 1077 pieces, almost more than my real Mini had.

    Bet we could start a whole new thread on Lego stuff, retro but still ever popular today.

    EDIT: I'll probably have to get my grandson to help me build it. :rolleyes:

    All finished today, took many hours but was good fun. This is the first serious Lego I have made, except for helping the grandkids occasionally with theirs.
    I was most impressed with the ingenious way everything locks together to give strength to the final product, and with this one, the actual level of detail included (and I'm very familiar with every detail of Mini's ;) ).

    Anyway, just for Petra, here is the final assembly :). You may also notice the "special" Mini themed quilt that my wife made a couple of years ago:

    One word of warning, it'll get messy. So make sure to have the kids around to lick up the chocolate coating. :D
