Looking back on 2014

It seems, the older I get, the faster the years fly by. Looking back, this year passed in just a moment. This was a year with quite some ups and downs. It’s not like anything really serious has happened, so rest assured. I had various plans, but couldn’t accomplish everything. At some points I was just totally busy with other stuff like work or being a voluntary firefighter. At other periods my other hobby (videogames) took a lot of time.

Accomplishments:

  • I bought and built quite a lot sets this year. Among these, many of the major Technic sets and some bigger System sets.
  • I built Sheepo’s Mustang.
  • I built Crowkillers Phantasm Twin Turbo.
  • Built some other smaller MOCs, like the Tumbler above made by ZBLJ.
  • Got several bulk supplies in smaller parts for some ideas I have.

Not accomplished:

  • Clear my to-build box.
  • Finish my C-model for 42009.
  • Post-process the video footage I recorded.
  • Find a good video processing software and learn how to use it.
  • Write reviews for the sets and MOCs I built.
  • Expand my building and storage space for better lighting and perhaps some backdrops.

Plans for next year:

  • Complete at least some of the reviews and videos.
  • Clearing the to-build box.
  • Start the long planned system MOC.
  • Build some MOCs from other people. The first one will be the 42009 C-model by MrTekneex.
  • Probably accomplish my own idea for a 42009 C-model with the above as base.
  • Expand my building and storage space for better lighting and perhaps some backdrops.

42030 and me

I wanted to go into a little more detail, but I guess that is not very interesting. So I leave it at that. All in all, it was still a good year. I got some great sets which really suprised me or where just very good value. But also I am a little disappointed about the things I did not accomplish.

Now, a new year is coming. I wish you, my readers and followers, all the best for the next year, a lot of new sets and bricks and of course lots of time for your favorite hobby. I sure have some plans and hope to pull through this year.

Until then, have a good time, a happy new year and a big THANK YOU for reading my blog and following me on Facebook.

Merry Christmas!

I want to wish all my readers and followers a really Merry Christmas. I hope all your wishes come true and that you have some nice holidays and even some time to build with your favorite bricks.

And to not have this post totally boring, here is a little brick-built movie that gave me the chuckles:

Set reviews for 1H15 Technic sets

Sariel, as one of the masters of Technic reviews, has gotten all the sets from the first Technic wave of 2015 for review by TLG. As he promised, he has finished all the reviews for the new sets by today. You can watch them on YouTube, of course.

The playlist also contains older reviews. So if you missed them, you can watch them there.
