  1. Thanks for the build gents! This was my favorite Lego we did in my home last year, it beat out the Rogue One ATST and the Force Awakens Millennium Falcon, a pleasure to build and just as enjoyable on the shelf. Though, I am bias as my Beatles fandom rivals my Star Wars. The build didn’t take long, so I hope Lego puts more Ideas kits out. I hope Lego continues with musically themed kits in the Idea series as well!

  2. Since Kenji is here, and talking about Mortar and Pestle. I have wanted to get one for a long time, but most I have seen are made of stone and looks like they would grind themselves up. I don’t want that in my food.

    What material, size, and/or brand is a recommended?

    Apologies if I am way off subject, but I have been curious and the expert is at the table, Lego in hand.

    Thanks.

  3. Ah! You got it before I did! Yellow Submarine is one of my cult movies, and I also have memories from my childhood playing my dad’s 45 singles, one of them being… Yellow Submarine. When I first moved in in this flat 25 years ago I painted a wall in this theme. I plan on buying this set and integrating it in the wall decoration.

    Like Kishore I never had Lego sets as a kid, but my neighbours gave me a huge bag of bricks and it was my favourite game.
