    Should also mention to anyone who isn't aware, they're running a daily contest until 11/2 on both Facebook and Instagram, to win a ship of the day or a full set of ships.

    Hopefully my Scarab might arrive at some point today.. but it's already quarter past 1pm.. oh 'eck! lol

    If it's half decent, I might order a few more of them!

    My personal opinion is it's at least three quarters decent.

    Scarab arrived about an hour ago.. It is fun to mess about with! Already made the main build, as well as bodging together my own doodah, with a deployable escape pod. The blocks themselves are slightly bigger than what I was expecting (just under an inch square, give or take), which helps bulk the set up without making it too heavy or unwieldy. I think I shall be ordering another set or 3 next week!

    Check the newest vid on the Youtube channel. Biggest/best custom by far at the end. It's basically the Macross, and it gets an actual shout-out.

    @Fort Max: thinking of picking some of these up; do the Diaclone pilots and waruder pilots fit the cockpits ok?

    Also, what in people’s opinion are the best sets to get? Thinking of going for a Sabre and possibly the gladius...

    The larger cockpits are fine, the smaller ones are a tight squeeze but I don't have all of them yet.
    To be quite honest i got the most fun out of the smaller sets to start with, less pieces yes but much quicker to pull apart and try a different approach which I was doing a lot.

    I'm surprised by how large the Scythe tank is, for being a £10 set.. I'm having great fun with these sets, and i'm a 42-yr-old!! lmao

    BTW, the "not-Macross" is now in the app, so you can build it. You basically need one of everything, and two Sabres.

    It’s a large battleship design that looks like something out of Macross.

    Think I'm gonna wait until after Xmas to order more of these things, just to be sure..

    And holy cow, the Scorpion is a chonk! I've made my own ship out of the set, and it's 13 ruddy inches long!!
