mpoh98 - thank you! I will try to take better pics later!
Bluesecrets - Hiya Blue! yah, its been awhile, to say the least. I expect I will be back a lot more now that I am starting to sort, and actually have the room to build.
Athos - I have no memory of this place... (actually I do, some parts of it are unfamiliar though)
Aeridian - Thanks!
Bruce - I will post some here as soon as I pull them off my phone! I am really pleased with the Minion, and its currently on display at the Brick Hutt here in town where I live - best place to buy loose lego EVER. it's like a bricklink in my own back yard!
- and as for the contest, there are some SERIOUSLY nice builds there already!
