    @Shib - what's your secret? Lol!

    I've got a big box of bricks from a guy (who did warn me there was probably some megablock bricks in there) with some random instructions, and parts for which there are obviously no instructions. I've just got to sort out the blacks and the greys, and then I'll have it all in colours, and with no megablocks!
    Im hoping I'll be able to actually start making sense of it at that point.

    @Kavster - I'm now eating those words a little...a package from eBay just showed up, the seller sent two MegaBloks sets instead of a LEGO set...needless to say I am pretty peeved!

    I don't buy job lots to avoid having to filter out all the crap...I might try to post in the sorting method thread later

    Just built the SDCC Action Comics #1 set that I got from bricklinked parts from ColaradoBricks.  Looks really good and is now on my desk at work and being admired by many people.

    Building my Ant-Man set #76039
    Those three minifigs are too cool!
    And those brick build Lego bricks are just too funny.
    I haven't seen the movie (yet) but I just had to get this set because of those figs. They will blend in nicely with all my other sci-fi Lego stuff.

    ^ Ant-Man was an awesome movie, definitely looking forward to Ant-Man 2. My wife hated the character before we saw the movie, but after seeing that film, she rates Scott Lang as up there with Star-Lord/Peter Quill.

    Mixed status today, happy as I got 4 sets from Ireland at a reasonably good price due to current exchange rates. Sad as the wife said that  she would get them for me as birthday presents and I can't have them till then. :o(

    Thanks for the kind words :)

    "This year we had 250+ submissions across both shows and we only have the space and budget for about half of that at ExCeL. As a result of the high number of submissions it has taken us longer than we hoped to thoroughly consider everyone’s submissions and ensure we were making the best decisions for the show." - Teresa Elsmore.

    I was planning to bring the following as well as a LEGO Store - Modular Building and two other £30-80 buildings which I'm keeping a secret :)

    https://flic.kr/s/aHskfjQccb

    I'll try and email them back, that way I can learn from what is good and what isn't good for next year.

    A Letter From Kevin Hinkle!

    A Letter From Kevin Hinkle

    Thanks Kevin and Kim :)

    Story:
    I had a dream last night were I met Kevin Hinkle from LEGO! - Me, 26 August 2015.


    What A Day... (and it hasn't even hit noon yet!)

    "Dear Adeel, I’m very sorry to say that we cannot accept your MOC submission for BRICK 2015 ExCeL. I know that this is not what you wanted to hear." - Teresa Elsmore.

    I had another LEGO dream last night that someone was selling the Bat-Pod (5004590) for £20 because the box was badly damaged although it was still sealed, I went ahead and purchased it...DARN IT! :/

    I just now I received a letter from Kevin Hinkle!

    Just realised that taking apart a 3000+ piece build and sorting it into it's relevant shapes sizes and colour and putting it into the resealable bags for the next build is nowhere near as much fun as building it in the first place.

    I appear to be leaking vital fluids.
    (nose bleed).

    I promise it was not caused by shoving bricks up it.
    (I have a cold like beyoncé's butt)

    (It won't quit).

    Please, Lord, make it quit...
    No amount of spandex and lycra will protect us from aging saggy buttocks.

    (It is possible I may have a feverish headcold).

    I bought my first Ninjago set today. A theme I never had any interest in. Apparently, I have no self control. As if I didn't already know that.

    Been sitting making Argos reservation 'preorder' lists in preparation for tomorrow. Thinking what I want, what would be nice to have, what to buy to resell, how to square it away with the wife etc. Suddenly asked myself if all the hassle was worth it, I have loads to build and not much time and space. Have deleted my basket and feel its a small step in the right direction!

If the label on theme is to be trusted it's a Halo pelican...part of me wishes I had some fireworks to try to blow it up....it is getting to fireworks season...

    I am finally settled in my new house and unpacked. Now I can start the massive job of sorting out my boxes of LEGO to start rebuilding everything I had to take down for the move.

    Open them up to make sure the sets are actually there, then donate them to the UK equivalent of Toys for Tots. We AFOLs may not enjoy MegaBloks but I imagine a less fortunate child would.

    I just placed nine orders on Bricklink; each one has elements for a new MOC with 680+ pieces. I also ordered additional parts which I was missing for several other MOC's so hopefully those will all cover my Flickr feed for one or two months :)

    I'll need to order four copies of 4552400 however it only appears in one set in white, therefore I have only two options which are both European sellers :/

    Just moved into my new room yesterday and to my delight there were 2 tables in there of the exact same height, so I'm using those as my Lego building/display space and my own table for work-related stuff.

    just realized the upper jaw of old dragons / crocos can clip on bars oO

    for example you can clip a large flame piece inside the mouth of a dragon master dragon.
