    Checked two Targets and two Walmarts for Series 14 CMFs today....all to no avail. Mapping out my route tomorrow for another look.

    Spent an hour or so taking apart all my Galaxy Squad sets.  Then, I assembled Imperial Shuttle Tydirium (75094).  Not the most fun to assemble but looks great as a display piece.

    @legomatt ....... I know what your going through. I just blew out my rotator cuff in my left shoulder trying to ascend up a 5 story building during rescue training last week.

    I appear to have crippled my right shoulder in my sleep. Movement restricted, extremely painful, now in its 3rd day and not much improvement.

    First time ever i wished magic all-heal elixir potions were a real thing.

    I have a similar issue. Figured out it was a pinched nerve in my neck. Still working on getting rid of the pain. It is a pretty terrible feeling!

    I just submitted my application for exbibiting at Brick 2015, fingers crossed!

    Most of them are my best MOC's I have already uploaded Flickr but some will be getting upgrades and some are completley new ideas :)

    @Thanos75 @karmajay
    It seems 'the brickset effect' has strange, hitherto unheard of, special healing powers for posting in the forum appears to have done the trick. Either that, or it was the searing heat I applied using that marvel of modern science, namely the hot water bottle... yeah, it was probably that.

    Hoorah! Once more I can hold aloft my magic sword and say...

    Still searching for the last few parts to build my Carousel, have given up on the base board and sound brick, which are way outta my price range, ( £70 for a green 48x48 and £124 for the sound brick). But getting excited that with only about 80 pieces still to find I can start building soon.

    Just reorganized some things in my basement to allow for safer storage of my vintage boxed sets and unbuilt new ones instead of stacking them in a storage bin, which was starting to damage them. #6090 is so oversized it's still hard to fit nicely on a shelf.

    I wish I still had all of my old vintage sets. 

    Today I took my kids to the lego store. I was happy to see CMF series 14 and the trick or treating set in store. When I returned home I ordered some gears and axles while my kids put this together. Tonight I am going to sort through some bricks to help my 7 year old build an ice cream truck.

    Looking through the forum before heading for day 2 of Bricktastic and thinking, "so many new threads created that duplicate existing ones". 
    When I have time I'm going to do an @joseph and find all the old ones so they can be merged.  
    Aye, I'm afraid that busy Uni/college life combined with a dark(ish) age mean I only pop my head in on rare occasions now.
    Good to see someone is making sure I stay sane when I come back in a couple years. :o)

    I just finished (99%) of Nick Trotta's MOC, The Atomium Starship. I watched his video on youtube to build it.  However, this is what happens when you start building and you have 97% of the correct pieces...But not necessarily the correct colors.  Great Build, just wish I could build in correct colors.  Maybe I should bricklink it.

    I am going through LEGO withdrawal. All my LEGO bricks are packed up for moving day, which is still 2 weeks away. I should stop coming to the forum because it's making my withdrawal worse. I almost convinced myself last night that there was no harm in opening the LEGO storage box and sorting out the pieces to build just one set (of course, once it was built I'd have to take it apart again).

    I've got the all-clear from the Mrs. To add a table or shelf to an extra room in the house to be used for All things Lego. Now I can't find anything to suit my needs! 

    So yeah, I guess I'm furniture shopping....

    Sorting, Sorting, Sorting. The Billund trip has given me the motivation to get all my Lego organized and I am even being disciplined and am resisting the temptation to just start building all the new sets I acquired.

    Both of these things relate to me.

    I bought the very same set from the same outlet for the same price. I also built it at work, didn't lose the dynamite though.

    The LEGO is packed away here for moving purposes except for some fresh sets in my locker at work. We're moving next week and I'm saving them but, I wont be back to work fir 2 weeks. I'm now planning a way to swing by and grab them.

    I regretted packing up all my Lego a month before I actually moved. So much temptation to take it all out again and build some of my modulars, but that would have been a terrible idea

    Went to the Lego Store to get my final 8 Series 14 Minifigs but was disappointed to find that they'd sold out of them (in 3 days!). Then I went to Target and found these...

    Got all of them except the Wolf Guy and the Banshee... Felt every pack at Target....the hunt continues...

    Heading to the Lego Store to find the three missing CMF Monsters (both zombies and catwoman) and hopefully picking up another Halloween set.

    Buildingwise...putting together #7674 SW Torrent from an incomplete set.

    Latest issues of LEGO Club magazine have just arrived... identical. No friends themed one. Usually get one of each. Perhaps the Heartlake City girls are just on their holidays?

    We also got the club magazines yesterday, it's disney princess Ariel on the front, also deep sea normal one and junior with city space on.
