I remember scouring all of the city and the web because the set had EOL'ed a month earlier. I could not afford to pay a steep aftermarket price for it, but after quite an extensive search, resorting too to calling a couple of companies with many branch stores throughout the country to ask them if they still had this set on the shelves in one of their shops. The last one available in all of the many department and toy-stores where they sell Lego sat on a shelf in a shop on the outskirts of Amsterdam. I rang them up, and they would hold on to it to closing time, if I would buy it that day. It was storming, and pouring rain that evening when I went there, but the miserable weather was all worth it.
And all this deconstructing proceeds while watching Silence of the Lambs, because taking and bagging up sets can be so tedious.
You'd think the task would become easier the less is in the box, but the parts are just getting smaller and smaller which makes sortin gthem much harder..... or I may just put it off again and continue my build of #10235
That is true. But this is still a mess. =)
I built it last night, what a great set! Loads of playability and, although I built it quickly last night (while allegedly watching the baby) I'll go back tonight and swap out the blue base plate pieces for any old grey ones I have and then use the blue to make sea around it.
Also, I realise the curtains are horrendous. They were in the house when we bought it and we've never got round to changing them!
My thoughts are with everyone affected by the tragedies of last night.
The Terrorists must know they have achieved nothing?
If only we could turn all guns and explosives into Lego bricks.
The world would be a much happier place.
That is an unrelated holiday-themed train. Let's not go crazy!
(I don't want to have to go track one down for my Winter Village.)
processing the first order from my bricklink store.
its got a white rabbit
Thanks @BOBJACK_JACKBOB :o)
Dug out all the winter village eta in preparation for next week to discover I was missing a bonus set from last Christmas I never used. hopefully it will turn up when I get the decorations out! also got together all the plates etc I got from PAB to fill in between the sets to realise its going go be very flat. time to learn how to use bricklink and get some slopes. On a related note, any idea how many 2x4 bricks you fit in a lager PAB cup?
@goldjono Can you advise @Nexander how many 2x4 bricks will fit in the larger PAB cup?
It was good to meet you too nexander. Afols and cake makers are very thin on the ground where I live so it was nice to meet someone who is both!
It was also very nice to meet your brother Lego Star. In fact tell him I said it AWESOME to meet him!
Also sorry I couldn't hang about but looking forward to the next meet-up!
Anyway, on topic, I'm halfway through building the Death Star my wonderful wife bought for me with her first wage as a newly qualified nurse!
Pass my congratulations to Hollie and tell her it was lovely to meet her (as it was you) a week past Saturday.
