My wife has bought me that for Christmas - I recently built the Porsche 911 GT3 RS after picking it up when it was cheap (£129 at Argos). It is mahoosive and I've bought two display cases to put them both in....

I saw the Chiron at Lego store in Disney Springs in Orlando last week - looks fab, although I still prefer the Orange Porsche ;)

Have still got the Porsche and if I get the time when we get into winter I will build them side by side and post a pic here

If I get the time to build them both over this winter i’ll picture them both alongside the real life Cayman S when it arrives

Finally got round to going to Legoland for the first time a few weekends ago for there fireworks display. Not that we needed an excuse at 32 years old with no kids lol...

Good day out actually, Minature Land was pretty cool, especially the Lego version of route 66. Having driven the entirety of the real Route 66 it was ace to see some the places on it recreated in Lego!!

Even had a minature Lego Santa Pod!

If you think Windsor is good - get yourself over to Billund! The Miniature Land is truly amazing there!

I find Windsor sadly dated and in need of refreshing - don’t get me wrong, the builds are good (if a little static)!

I too found Windsor really dated to be honest. Was quite suprised really infact.

A few years ago we had tickets to Legoland Florida but for reasons beyond our control never actually got around to going there :/ (LLand not Florida that is) but there site over in FL is supposidly very impressive aswell?

We used to take the kids to Windsor once a year and was always impressed as they were adding new attractions almost every year but have not been for about 10 years, so maybe they have not moved with the times.

I flew in and out of Bilund half a dozen times this year whilst working for a company 1.5 hours north of Bilund and stayed in the town/airport a few times but never found the time to spend a day at Legoland, missed opportunity I think

Looking good Dave. Can’t wait to see the new model built. :) x
Got a choice of three...Porsche 911, Bugatti or Millenium Falcon or could rebuild the orange Porsche GT3...............

Think the 911 might get the nod as should be right size for the office display cabinet

I have two sets of Lego. I only really like it if the model looks like the thing it's supposed to be, not a squared off blocky version of it. I have WALL-E and the Caterham 7.

My current collection, only started last year as I got a little board, and did enjoy helping my daughter build her sets up. It's surprising how cheap Lego is compared to buying retrofit parts for Audi's...

Currently mucking around with motorising the Extreme Adventure, and plan to stick motors in the rest of the models to make them RC.

OMG!!!!! I would love that, Technic fans need to start a petition for Lego to make that.

I'm a bit lost as I've now built (and enclosed in a case) the Porsche 911 GT3 RS and the Bugatti Cheyron and need a new large Technic supercar to build.....

Ditto - working through building it now. It’s a beast, had no idea it had so many motors and 2 control units! An owner needs shares in AA batteries for it!

Started off my converting my bucket wheel excavator to the aggregate processor. Took way longer than I expected, but envision being able to use the two together.

Not a great picture but using the R9800 (42100) to grab bricks and load hopper on aggregate sorter (42055 model B) - very cool and fun to do!

For myself I got the R9800, but had to wait a while until there was a decent enough discount.
