Mr. DHL has just dropped off my [email protected] order :-)
trying not to spend any more money for the Next mouth.
(I hate stickers!)
And new stickers are coming in the post, of course!
I liked not having to wait on hold forever too.
bear that in mind.
That will be fine, I'm in no hurry. The stickers are hanging on for now, so I won't replace them for a while anyway. CS told me they'd ship within 7-10 days, so we'll see about that :-O
i know it take's a long time as it coming by land all the way and has longer to travel then lego set's do.
all i know is that it took almost 3 months to get the right part i needed after the 1st one i ordered from pick a brick got crushed by yodel, the 2nd time sent the wrong item, and the 3rd time was slower then ever as it was right in the middle of Christmas rush.
So as I posted a few pages ago, I finally got my hands on a Black Pearl and Queen Anne's Revenge. Today I finally built the Black Pearl. Buyer stated "All pieces are in excellent condition and are sorted out in plastic bags according to color. Set was only put together once and all pieces are included. Set was disassembled and cleaned before packaged." The set was beyond dirty, my hands were black after I was done but that is besides the point. A few of the pieces were broken and yes I mean broken. The Cannon Base had the handles broken off, brown 4 x 2 was cracked, and a sloped 3 by 1 had the front broken off. My personal opinion is that a broken set is not a complete set. The pieces may not be expensive to replace but it will still cost around $3. Do I have the seller refund me that amount or just leave it alone?
I remember watching one of Jank Brick's video and he made a good point where we have to keep the seller accountable for the items that they sell.
Any comments or suggestions are most welcome
Personally, I open my CMFs by slicing along the seam on the back. That way, there is no visible damage to the packet. Both these sellers just cut the along the bottom of the packet with a pair of scissors. Seems excessive, but not a problem.
9,634 parts and one huge shock regarding the price of all the pieces I need later, combined with the fact that I still need to do all the floor tiling, ceiling tiling and exterior landscaping, I'm wondering if it really was a good idea to build a modular scale eight-storey building with a view to BL'ing it... even if I already have a third of the pieces needed thanks to my local PaB wall. I suppose it's lucky there's not much stuff coming out in the summer that I'm that interested in! Now to figure out how best to bulk buy white 1xX bricks, plates and tiles cheaply. I'm normally a Constraction builder with limited space so I don't really keep a stock of loose System parts. Sometimes I wish I did!
A lot of them aren't 100% (or probably even 50%) accurate, but definitely close enough for me. I probably could've made Mark IV close enough too, but came across the custom printed torso a while back and decided to get it.
I noticed her taking a bit more interest in it as we were opening our Advent calendar this year. And then, over the last couple of weeks, she has spent a considerable amount of time with our son building.
My son and I started building #75105 Millenium Falcon on Wednesday night. We got through the first couple of bags and then put it away for the next day. My son woke up yesterday and asked my wife if she would build with him since I was at work. My wife apparently told my son that, "Daddy wouldn't be happy with Mommy if she built without him, even though Mommy really wants to."
Hmm...can't say I ever thought my wife would get the bug. I know there are many here who share the love of Lego with the entire family. I'm excited about that possibility! And, considering my wife has a degree in Interior Architecture and Design, and is the most creative person I know, why wouldn't she love Lego!?
Curious. Very curious.
Got home to a flat jiffy bag.....
....ordered this to complete my Rebels Microfighter collection over three weeks ago. Nothing for 10 days so I started a non shipping report, got a one line response to say it had shipped. Week later it finally arrives post marked two days ago. The jiffy bag looked bad from the outside and as I opened it half the pieces poured out. Currently seeking a partial refund for a set that was listed as "NEW"
edit: just had a reply from the seller..
This is gonna be a FUN promo
Did however get to TrU to pick up the free take and build Batman car.
I may have to recreate a certain scene from the movie now... ;P
Okay, okay, it snowed (a little bit +/-3 cm) in Amsterdam. Does not happen every year, but it did today, so I had to take this puppy out, and put him in his element.
