    I don't really want to write this several times, so I'm going to write it here (hopefully everyone that needs to sees it).
    I just lost my pet rabbit,and don't really feel up to packing/shipping at the moment, so if I'm in a buy/sell/trade with you, it's going to take me longer than usual to do anything.

    Same goes for @Lowa...

    @SprinkleOtter Sorry for your awful loss. I wish I could say something but I've never really had a pet so I haven't experienced the loss of a beloved little animal before.

    Hmm... to bricklink or dismantle? Ive reached that point in my Christmas village building where I realise I 'liberated' six key elements from 10235 for other projects. So do I bricklink and hope they arrive in time or do I dismantle, knowing the likelihood is that I won't rebuild?

    ^^^ looks great!  Haven't built mine and I've had it years... Might have to do some de-boxing soon!  Much bigger than I expected.

    Go for it! I put off building mine way too long! Bit fiddly in places and a bit hard on the thumbs but a most enjoyable build indeed - something you can really get your teeth into :-)

    At a rare point in my collecting at the moment, after the 3 for 2 sales, half price sets and varying other sales over the last few months, apart from retired sets (which can wait for a bit) I actually haven't got any large sets that I am in a rush to get. 
    I'm now actually really looking forward to a couple of months of just building some of the backlog.

    ^Looks between 270-325 pieces. Hope that helps, just an estimated guess. (Counted one "row" then counted how many "rows" there were)

    Anyone want to help me count this lot before tomorrow?
    Also the 2 year old loved looking at all the Lego in Smyths today, he was all wow and amazed by it all :)
    Can I ask why it matters how many there are?

    TRU, Target, LEGO Store... The LEGO Batman Movie sets are all over. I'm doing all I can to wait for the mandatory 20% off, but I'm loosing the battle. I want them. I want them all. I want them NOW!

    In other news, watching Ninjago on Amazon Prime Video. Never watched the show before; time to catch up now that I have a few sets. 5 episodes in and looking forward to see how that Lloyd "mini-Palpatine" kid becomes the golden ninja sitting in my Dimensions collection. NO SPOILER PLEASE!!!

    Finally got around to designing my Orient Express! Except... I've never built a train without instructions before and the locomotive is difficult...especially when you're working with LDD and not actual pieces. Oh well, I'll get there eventually :)

    Currently really excited because I finally found a text-free version of one of my favorite LEGO Elves key visuals from this year in the LEGO Big Holiday Catalog!

    Now using it as a wallpaper for my iPhone!
    My wallpaper is as below. Battle of the 3 capers, red, black and white.



    One Punch Man all the way!

    Latest set to be fixed up, overall seemed kinda small in size. I think will need at least 4 sets to convert to a modular scaled version.

    Thanks to TLG's insanely cheap prices on [email protected] for the new Dimensions packs, I now have another 2x Mission Impossible & 2x Adventure Time Level packs coming just for the short sleeve arms, plus 2x Tina Goldstein Fun packs, as @xiahna wants to use the head for her sigfig (we've decided to go with flesh over yellow, cause....Marvel).

    Trying to avoid Lego at the moment, as I might buy something that others may think of as a Christmas present for me... It's pretty hard.

    @SprinkleOtter it was for my guess how many in the jar for the school Christmas fair, the answer 1,039 :)

    It went ok, the thing that worked best was the tower building, I would do that again. Also would have to think of other little games for the next one but that's in summer. 

    The best bit of it all though was when a boy from my son's class (age 10) said wow you have awesome parents :) haha

    Went to Walmart and saw #75149 Resistance X-Wing Fighter at $54.00 and #75154 TIE Striker at $54.00. Very tempting.

    • #76036 Carnage's SHIELD Sky Attack at $8.92
    • #60105 City Fire ATV for $4.24
    • #60126 City Tire Escape for $4.24

    #40223 is the first Xmas decoration of the year.  Lovely little build.  And 14 spares :-)

    Had a particularly hectic week with BrickLink. Big orders to fill, including parts from sets I hadn't sorted yet. Been burned by that before - sort the set efficiently, or pick out just parts needed now? Got 6 #10697 at WalMart on Thanksgiving and and just got 2 ordered on Cyber Monday. They're relatively easy  - many items by lot and come bagged by color.

    Sometimes I'm too quick to jump on LEGO bargains - I miss a better deal on another set, the same set gets discounted further later, or non-LEGO spending (what's that? :P)
  • KingAlanIKingAlanI Rochester, NYMember Posts: 2,094
    Excited my 3 #70806 Castle Calvary sets I got for $6.35 each all turned up in perfect condition from Amazon. So much bley/dark bley for mocs!

    That set seems like a stylistic predecessor to Nexo Knights, though Nexo has more transparent.

    Yeah, that's a steal. Average BrickLink prices add up to $42.53, 6.7x. I look for a bit over 2x, and around 3x is a big score.

    PS
    It's Cavalry; Calvary is the location of Jesus' crucifixion - a rather important distinction. ;)

    A few months after I came out of my dark age, I had most of the sets I wanted and my spending leveled off.
    My backlog is that I'm not far into #10251 and #41180. Hopefully I can work on those this weekend. Partially built sets kicking around are even more of a mess than sealed boxes. :)
