Have you any idea how difficult it is to set up six Lego minifigures in walking poses in close proximity on a studded baseplate? After fiddling around for ten minutes and experiencing multiple domino effect collapses as I was placing the last figure, I finally managed to get it set up. Next time I might resort to using Blu-Tack or something to hold them in place.

2014-03-20 Rerun commentary: This was an ongoing problem throughout the production run of IWC. I probably refer to it in other annotations in the future.

Despite my ranting here, I don't think I ever resorted to using Blu-Tack specifically to hold minifigures in place on a baseplate. I did use it to do other things, like holding figures in various gravity-defying poses.

The number of domino-effect topplings of multiple minifigures during set-up for a photo was alarmingly high. That's one thing I won't miss.
