Really good work mate.......that went real quick (in internet time it did anyway), looks like something that would take me the best part
of a year to complete. Good to see you stuck to your guns and saw it through, the results are well worth it!!

Wow Soda, very impressive! Looks awesome, but that (must be a giant) lego man behind it in one of the photos threw me off for scale lol.

LOL Dash... :lol:

Speaking of scale, it sits exactly 715 mm high. A far cry from the 4 feet I was anticipating. That Lego man is a torch thingy I bought a few months back and is definitely NOT a minifigure, just a GIANT replica of one you may have guessed.

Well, 50% of my next build is now sourced and ordered. Depending how I go getting some of the parts, could be starting it in the next 4 - 6 weeks as a guess. 1800 Very light Grey 1x1 plates and 767 1x1 Trans plates are some of the main parts that Ive now ordered. A few brown pieces are becoming a headach though. Only need a small handful but every piece counts and could be one damn piece that halts contruction..... :o

Glad you liked the pics guys.... :mrgreen: More to follow in due course.

Fantastic build. Looks stronger than my arcade machines (shhh don't tell anybody)

I'm sure your wife would prefer the 700mm version rather than the 1200mm. Same here when I built the Ultimate Arcade II which is 6'2" and has a control panel 4' wide. She prefers the cocktails.

The big lego man looks pretty cool, but I think a king kong up the top would have been better.

Well done Soda, and have a red wine to celebrate!
