Hi All

Thought I would share my little hobby, I have created and sold quite a few themed lego frames from Downton Abbey, Marvel, DC, Walking Dead and everyone's favourite Star Wars of course 8)

My question is, does anybody else on this forum have a creative side and wish to share with us all as I have.

Russ :D

Those Lego frames are neat.

This one ain't mine it's my brother's, he bought a glass liquor bottle shaped as a Stormtrooper head which came in a cool black box with a metallic/holographic Stormtrooper helmet outline on it, he cut it out and whacked it in the frame. :)

kept that spaceman from when I was a kid :D

I had loads of sets back in the 80's, wish I had them all now.

I put this frame together not long ago, I love things from the 80's they bring back happy memories.

I like those with the artwork in them. I did this one a while back with an Ikea frame, glued some little shelves in and painted them white:
