Brick Barn

FUN, Relaxation AND Gunships

August 5, 2016 Uncategorized 0

It is so much fun to be an owner of a niche shop where everyone who walks through the door knows, loves and wants to build and create with your stuff.  It is especially gratifying to have repeat guests!  This afternoon the Republic Gunship was built!  It took a couple of visits but this set is one big build at over 1000 bricks.


Which then begs the question, who would win in a battle – a Republic Gunship with Obi-wan aboard or Slave 1?  Of course if you sneak up behind him…


It will be on display for the rest of this week.

Also we had a repeat visit from a young gentleman who previously built the very cool Nexo Knights set Moltor’s Lava Smasher.  He was very keen to build another set from this very well designed series and assembled #70314 Beast Master’s Chaos Chariot.


Which comes with Macy and her noble? metal steed!


You have to check out the Beast Master’s control over the chain chomps? as it is a really simple but effective mechanism.

His sister also started an Elves set #41174 The Starlight Inn which has two mini-dolls and a cute baby dragon.  The set has over 300 bricks so we had to set it aside to be completed next time she visits.  She had as much fun playing with the half built set as she had building it.  Lots of rearranging the stuff on the table for their party.  And one mini-doll kept mopping the floor causing the other one to slip on it and flip over the unfinished inn wall 🙂  The little dragon even had a bed with a pillow!

Both kids were awesome and enthusiastic about building their sets and I’m also glad their parents were able to enjoy a bit of time in our comfortable sitting area playing one of our games and enjoying coffee, tea and some snacks.

And that is what our shop is all about!
