So, 365 days into becoming an AFOL (a term I had never even heard of back then), I now have:
Its been a really fun year discovering Brickset (and Flickr), and of course rediscovering my childhood love of LEGO and Star Wars.
- 2 shelves at home displaying 11 sets and 22 minifigures,
- 365 posts (!),
- 396 likes (!!),
- and my own domain (http://www.xwingpilot.uk) that currently forwards to my LEGO photostream on Flickr
Thanks all for the warm welcome here on the forum. Brickset is a wonderful resource, and a really great community :)
Man, I can't wait to get a new place with a dedicated LEGO room.
Bought a binder to keep all the instructions together, about 50 zip lock bags and Netflix to keep me entertained
First time this has happened.
.....little Creator fountain looks really cool and should do for £250. Nice of them to throw the Technic 911 GT3 RS in for free as well.
At the hairdressers today & pleasantly surprised to find an article about Lego in Hello magazine
Excuse me for about 5 mins...
what do you think of this lot ?
its the only pic. difficult to tell. she says its 7 kilograms
Looks like mostly "meh" to me, but cheap LEGO parts are cheap LEGO parts...
i paid more than RRP for a set!
#10228 haunted house
me thinks it will only rise in value!
315€ including shipping
its too much i know. but i really wanted it! its the ultimate monsters/zombie set!
Maybe you already tried, but this is what worked for me:
- Look for minilegs; also, if you feel any accessory, discard.
- If head has antenna (easy to feel) = Alien
- If head has big ears (they stand out) = Stitch
- No antenna, no big ears = Cheshire Cat :-)
Opened #31026 Bike Shop & Café and 2/3 into sorting the pieces realized that two of the big bags have identical content (the one with the stairs) and, of course, one is missing :-(
I guess a call to customer service is in order.
One was called Geber. Not sure where I got that name...
Maybe they had 1 or 2 unsatisfied employees. I wonder if the manufacturing is done in china.
The problem is that my working area (read: dining table) is covered with all the (nicely) sorted bricks and there is no space to work on a different set (I need my LEGO fix!).
I guess tomorrow I'll put the pieces in little ziplock bags (OK, cheap-knockoff brand), so I can work on other sets while I wait for this issue to be resolved.
Nobody is perfect, so as long as they send me the missing parts I am OK :-)
On the bright side: Who's ready to pick up (or order) their promo set tomorrow? I am taking a long lunch to drive to the LEGO store for it.
UUU OOOOOOOO UUU OOO
its about the reggae ninja's (a red, yellow and green ninja) fighting against an evil 4 armed 2 headed jester, who is summoning all the monsters from the lego universe!
still paying back my mother the money i borrowed from her the last 4 months.
so no new lego buy's this week.
in other news. i have £130 of ("wishing to get") shelving in my ikea shopping Basket before shipping cost. (about £35) that is just a wish, as i have no cash to get it with.
again this is down to still paying back my mother.
of that is the cheap wight shelving that cost £18 for this.
so £130 is a lot of shelving. and it is sadly going to stay a wish. for the next about 3 months.
It's very handy to be able to take out the small subdividers, because if you find you've got more of a particular part than you thought, you can just double the space you allot to it. I got them in order to sort the smallest pieces - at the moment I'm using them for any non-brick element that is 2x2 or smaller, and for bricks in 2x1 and 1x1 sizes. I probably won't use them for larger plates and bricks, but they're perfect for all the tiny bits. I could see them being very useful for minifigs too.
