|This was a present from 2015...and to this day it remains one of (if not the) favorite sets of mine!|
By the time the tiles arrived, I no longer had any time to work on my LEGO project (or really anything else "fun" thanks to the busyness of my work and the end of the semester). To be honest, I didn't give the amusement park idea any more thought and the bag of tiles that arrived in the mail just sat on my desk.
Then, at Christmas my brother and his wife gifted me a whole bunch of awesome LEGO sets including a pair of LEGO friends amusement park sets (he must have had the same idea for me and my amusement park). They got me the bumper cars set and the amusement games set with the target practice.
I ended up grabbing one of those giant gray base plates at Target...and I found a cheap polybag with another amusement park mini game at Wal-Mart last night. And so, after months of (sort of) planning, plus some awesome gifts, I'm now ready to start working on my amusement park properly!
It is my hope that I'll be able to make some actual, real progress on this new project in the next few days (weeks?). My first order of business will be to build the three Friends sets though...and then I'll probably mix and match those parts/builds with pieces from my own collection to hopefully create a vibrant amusement park square for my LEGO citizens.
