How do you build your sets?
Posted Jul 22 2012 - 03:32 PM
Personally, I just go bag by bag, but I'm getting the Diagon Alley set soon and would like to know your opinions and preferences on different styles of building.

Credits go to Strack for the awesome sprite.
I'm an Emerging Fluidic Master (again). Time to start working on my Waterbending.
I'm still a ninja although I think I'm losing my skills as one.

Titan sets are similar, but I always put on the small decorative stuff last (spikes, weapons, etc.).
Thanks to Valenti for the pic! ^

Even when things look there worst. And the shadow of evil is upon us. Remember that as long as we hope for the best. Light will appear and overcome the darkness.

92% of teens have moved onto rap.
If you are part of the 8% that still listen to real music, copy and paste this into your signature.

Sadly, school and other forums are limiting my activity here.
If I'm not logged in and posting, however, I'll still have BZP open as a tab in Chrome.

Example: With the first Makuta: Build the head. Build the lower arms. Build the staff. Then use the instructions for the body, upper arms, and legs.
I use that process for almost every set I buy.

Yes, my method did make for an "interesting" building experience with the 10030 UCS Star Destroyer.

At that point, how I build it depends on whether I'm doing so alone or with my siblings. Lately we've been building some of the modular buildings as a family, and as per tradition we've been alternating steps between the three of us in a pattern. Of course, for certain sets if it's just my twin brother and me, we might divide certain identical or symmetrical sections up between the two of us, regardless of set numbering. That can be more efficient since there's less trading off and more working at our own pace.

If it's of any interest to you, I am now on semi-permanent semi-hiatus.

It. Takes. So. Long.
... But, it does result in a much easier system for building the set. No going crazy over that one piece that you saw five million times before, but when you need it for something it totally disappears on you...
Though, if I'm building it and I'm not planning a review, then I just dump all the contents of every bag into one pile and get-a-building! This method has been used by me since I was a kid. XD

Is it strange to be annoyed that other people are using my color?
Y'all know who you are.

However, the medium-small sets, I make it a rule never to look at the instruction booklet (at the box cover/back cover instead), unless I'm stuck on a part for more than ten minutes. It keeps building fun, due to the simplicity of the newer sets. I also occacionally make small modifications to the sets, using the parts provided, if the set is difficult to move, or play with the original configuration, or if it simply looks better without or with a certain piece shifted/removed.
Anyone do similar building methods?
Keep in mind that if Star Trek fans had, as a group, said, "No point in talking about this anymore, it's never going to come back," it never WOULD have come back.

I go bag-by-bag, following the instructions. I'll occasionally just dump all the pieces together if it's a smaller set.
didn't you hear, the goggles do nothing
