6 Scale Collaborative Build

I built a lot of 6 scale bricks yesterday for a collaborative build at the Xmas party of the Brickish Association next week.

I had a lot of white 2x2 round corner bricks (macaroni's) so I built a lot of white ones! I am not sure what the completed model is going to be yet, but will post a report about it after I get back.

Darth Vader Statue

I have also managed to get hold of one of these to add to my collection.

There was only six of these made as previously reported in our post here. I bought one from someone who won it as a competition prize, but then deceided they didn't want to keep it ... good for me!!

He is the same scale as Spiderman and the Harry Potter models, I wonder if any more have been made in this scale? I am probably forgetting some...

Again, it was sent to me in the original box (pictures here) which had interesting information including his birth date (22/01/07).

6041 - Armour Shop X6

This is a very nice x6 scale set of the classic castle set. I saw it at the Skaerbaek event recently.

It looks very impressive and I loved the horse and the sheild detailing. The minifigs look very effective, but are very hard to do at this scale, especially to get the head/face right. I am glad I build to the larger x10 scale as it is much easier to get things looking rounder!

My Spiderman!

After mising out on one of these as blogged here;
I decided to go for it when they same person had another one for sale. It actually looks a lot nicer in the flesh (or should that be brick!) than in the auction photos.

An interesting thing is that it got sent to me in the original packing box which had some interesting info on the label. It gives the year, serial number and the country and name of company that built him. I had heard that all the display models that more than one are made are produced are made in the Czech Republic, so this confirms it.
I am also interested about the 'SM04' part of the name. I wonder if this is the 4th model they did in this type, or if there was other Spiderman models?

There are a couple of different views over in my flickr gallery

(1st post for a long while... sorry Richard! I have very busy clearing my house out to make room for more LEGO!! or so people can actually sleep in a bed when they come to stay :)
