I found two copies of '8909 - LEGO Collectable Minifigures - Team GB' at my local Argos four years after release!
I'm extremely satisfied as I wanted to get the whole 'Team GB' series but at the time I only managed to get two. This was purely unintentional and it clearly caught me off guard. As soon as I laid my eyes on them I literally dashed towards them with a burst of excitement.
As you guys may know that these go for £15-£20 each (sealed) on the secondary market as they were a limited edition series and only available in the UK, therefore they are very valuable. I've already opened them! I could have gotten at least £30 back but to be honest the 2012 Olympics happened here plus I think they are cool. It's better to have the product than the cash in my opinion.
NB: I've realised that the Relay Runner's medal isn't printed, so I'll have to pick one off Bricklink. It's rather odd, it's has never happened to me before. Though it makes that particular Minifigure special now that I have opened it.
we need a place to post or read up on idea's to fill your time when you waiting for something.
You should definitely "look" into it ;)
you are SLOW!!!!!
i already did :p
Obligatory link to what I created: https://www.flickr.com/photos/theoneveyronian/25388123032/in/dateposted-public/
Pop Star collection coming along well, looking forward to displaying and playing with them them together.
The sets have been getting more complicated as time goes on and it's very noticeable, especially with #21124, that there's a greater use of plates and other bricks to create the more complicated structures and play features in them.
For #21123, I think I'm definitely going to re-do the Iron Golem in a similar way to Jang's re-interpretation, as the grey arm articulation doesn't look great:
it was listed at 50.
need to read the forums more.
While we were unpacking, the driver said "I couldn't help notice that rather large X-wing on the shelf in the study... Is it the UCS one?" Ended up giving him a closer look and discussing secondary market prices. :)
and now i am finding it hard to ignore this set like i do most super hero set's.
what suck more is this set + this summers airport theme set's would pear up quite well. and i am already being tempted with them.
then again i am not made of money. we will have to wait and see what saving and offers i can pick up on set that are high on my "i have to have that set" list.
maybe i will find the cash, maybe not.
only time will tell.
maybe i should stop watching Jangbricks videos. ..... Na... he's to fun to stop watching!
Did more organizing for my flag mosaic. I already set aside the remaining parts, but today I inventoried and labeled those bags, while doublechecking on what I needed. Then I assembled the plate strips that will link the remaining baseplates.
i am buying lego.
i am finding out that the water heater is dead. and that we need a new one.
i am happy i don't pay for this type of stuff. i just pay rent to the bank of mum and dad.
i am being told that the airing cupboard in my room (the one Behind the BIG! bookshelf.
will need to be got at. so i have to pack away almost all my Lego.
as well as other stuff on the bookshelf.
then i need to find place to Move said bookshelf to. (as well as find someone to move it as i cannot.
it is going to be a long day.
Look on the bright side; you were bored the other day, now you have plenty to do now ;)
oh and i also have to try not to hurt my self by doing more then i can handle.
witch is not a lot to start with. slowly oh so slowly stuff is getting done.
or is my geography even more crap then i know it to be.
(I've replaced my real name with "TOV" here btw) It took a while but I'm glad LEGO do take this sort of thing seriously, and hopefully it might even tell people that stealing MOC images is not acceptable. I think I'll take that as a success :o)
Like the acronym in letter of your name, I first thought of Time Out Value or Threshold of Visibility, then realised it was your username :)
i am also working on V2 of my Moc of Palace Cinema.
and it is slow going.
After getting TBBT set for my birthday last week I decided to incorporate it into the first floor of a modular cafe I built last year. Worked out all right I thin. Just a small BL order to come to fill in some gaps in the walls downstairs.
at 7.01 pm.
sat waiting all day. was not fun. i hate waiting.
third order shipped out from lego today about 5pm.
i just started to build #10232 Palace Cinema to get a feel for how it is normally built.
got to step 11 of the main build of book 1, (i have skipped the car build. i will do that later.)
when it is done, then i will pull most of it apart after i have spent some time admiring it.
and start work on the 3 set's in to 1 MOC i plan to do of #10232 Palace Cinema.
also now have my last #10218 Pet Shop. (well i say the last. if i see a good offer on it at Toys R Us or Smyths and have the cash to get it. i will. it's that good of a model.) and i plan to use that to build a MOC of Pet Shop.
but will most likely need left over parts from #10232 Palace Cinema MOC to pull the #10218 Pet Shop MOC off. so #10232 Palace Cinema will be first to get its MOC.
i am also taking images, for a post i plan to make on what i did/How to Build a MOC of a Modular. i say plan as i may abandon the idea. as it is only an idea right now. and not all ideas see the light of day.
news on the new water heater. the unit it self will be dropped off on Friday, and there coming to fit it on Monday. it is planned to take 2 days.
all i have to say after seeing the price. i am relay happy i don't have to pay for it.
btw sleeping bag's are relay good for sleeping in when you have no heating system.
However! "I AM STILL COLD!."
well. that was my busy day.
Also peeked at SDCC SH figs values and was very shocked with the 2013 series already at ~$900 levels. I'm sad I sold off my 2 extra Black Supermans too early a few months ago at $500 a piece. Grr!!
And the other post about #10188 Deathstar sticker sheet reminded me I had to pick up an extra still, which just arrived.
