I would really encourage Firefox, as it as a built in spell checker.

Just click on the link on the top that Bruce gave us. Before you ask questions, you should search a little for the answer.

I'm quite impressed with the spot-on scaled-up Yellow Castle. Looking at the thumbnail, I thought "that's just a Yellow Castle. Why is it here?" Then I read the text and noticed the little one beside it...

Hey,

More photos from Huw Millington. Coolest bit is to see that that 6x Yellow Castle was truly built on-site from 6x bricks that had been made before. What an utterly cool idea!

The Tudor style hotel is so detailed, at first I thought it was a architectural model! That thing is superb, I would love to have one of those in my LEGO village.

I really like the walls of the hotel, but I think the roof kind of takes that whole awesomeness away. The plain studded plate roof could have used some more tiles, or a different roofing technique if you ask me.
The walls are very well made though, with SNOT techniques to get the pattern right. I can't exactly put my finger on why, but that gate in the middle looks very inviting to me.

The big yellow castle is just plain awesome, the amount of yellow bricks needed to make the 6x bricks is impressive and that they actually built it there on site with the actual 6x bricks is even cooler, it's not just a 6x magnification of the castle, it's a true 6x magnification of the set and all its parts. In theory you'd need 216 (6x6x6) original yellow castle sets just for those parts. Even though I'm sure there were more sources of yellow parts, where would one get 2592 yellow slope 75 bricks? :P I love this!
Just look at this photo, with all the parts lying around, I'd be proud if I could even build a few of those bricks, let alone the whole yellow castle :D

:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

I WANT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Both of them! Though I would like the little one more (Think figs).

Thats enough wishing for now.

When I first saw it, I thought it was the real one. then I took a closer look.

:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: was my reaction.

I wish I had that much bricks in yellow. On second thought, I want all that Lego in grey, black, blue, grey, yellow, white, grey, bley, and even tan! I don't even own that many pieces! Period!

That is just awesome!

The amount of work that must have gone into producing that yellow castle is insane. The fact that each brick is individually constructed and that the entire thing was assembled on site just blows my mind. I would love to see some of the alternate models from the back of the box built with this baby. Probably the most incredible MOC I've seen this year.
