I realized today that I built this set one year ago. The LEGO Ultron Edition Hulkbuster has been residing on my desk ever since. I enjoy having it here on my desk and like looking at it because it is such an interesting piece. It is huge and it took a long time to build. I did record myself building it for over two hours a year ago and you can see that video below.
At the same time as this piece came in so did all the Avengers Infinity War sets. With Avengers: Endgame right around the corner I have been on the lookout for all the new sets for that movie. I think there are at least five sets but they are not out in stores and can’t be ordered at this time. When they come in I will make sure I do some builds on video.
Today was a nice day with Andrew. I took him to school and then went to the gym. From there I went back to shcool and played some Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild until it was time to go in to read to Andrew’s Class.
I read the class two books. The first was Different is Awesome by Ryan Haack and illustrated by my friend Wes Molebash. The kids liked that very much. The second book was Nanette’s Baguette by Mo Willems. The kids loved that story and they laughed like crazy. That book is a great one for laughter. Andrew said it was his favorite book.
We went to lunch at Bliss Bros. Dairy because I had a craving for clamcakes and chowder. Andrew was s so much fun at lunch. We are starting to have better conversations and he’s such a joy to take to a meal. He was funny and sweet. He impressed the waitress, too, with his speaking. She said to me that he spoke so well and then she asked him how old he was. He held up his hand. I looked at him and said, “She just said that you spoke well and then when she asked you a question you just help up your hand.” He pointed to his mouth. His mouth had been full and so he was actually being polite. Well, I’m glad he had the presence of mind to be polite in that moment.
We went to the playground right after that. Andrew played on his favorite things like the zipline and the swings. He took a couple of falls but got right back up to try it once again.
In my video I talk about the new Marvel Superheroes LEGO set that Brian and I built for an episode of Built from Bricks. The Hulk vs Hulk set is a great one. It is really fun to play with, too. You will see when the episode is released.
