I'm a little confused as what you mean by "finish them". I suggest keeping anything you want. If there's a lot of parts you don't like, sell them and get something you do like.
I've been debating nearly all week but I've finally made a decision. After experiencing The LEGO Batman Movie (2017) I've come to a conclusion that I'll be keeping #76052 - Batman Classic TV Series, Batcave that I purchased for £159.99 from Smyths. I'll happily have it as a replacement for The LEGO Batman Movie (2017) sets given how similar in concept they are and how many times that show is referenced in the movie.
For someone who has built a Mighty Micro interpretation of the Batman '66 Batmobile and owns a sealed #30603 - Mr. Freeze it's the right choice.
Next week I need to pick up #71017-9 - Dick Grayson for the Shark Repellent! Although I'll still be missing a shark therefore it's an excuse to also order #5003082 - Classic Pirate Minifigure which is missing from my retro promo collection too.
So far is today:
[and I hope those tiles are grease free]
Bought some more 50% discounted Elves and Friends sets from [email protected] Those minidolls are very cute, and the sets definitely contain lots of useful and interesting parts.
Yes, I think they are very cool, and I am going to mix the hell out of them! ;-)
My own status: over the weekend didn't get a chance to go out and watch TLBM with my gang (inconceivable!), so we kicked back with the original which just kinda appeared on Netflix :-). Was great to revisit and notice all the background detail again - such a well-made film, and so funny. Yes, I teared up at Benny's Spaceship moment, and when Emmet realised his true potential. I blame the soundtrack.
My other half almost made it to halfway this time before falling asleep - she's not too well right now...
My three outstanding [email protected] parcels showed up this morning, so there has been a lot of happy fondling of Lego boxes. Common sense indicates that I ought to tidy up the Lego that's sitting out here before starting to build the Avenjet, so I will tear myself away from the forum anon...
(Thought: this Thanos bigfig looks amazing, but I suddenly wonder how you'd do Galactus... brick-built? Really, enormously, colossally brick-built?)
Dude?! Dafudge you talking about?
Does it make it better or worse if I tell you that's how the sets were positioned after my son played with them? Only the VW, that's not for playing and was just added to take the picture.
I love the fact that he enjoys SW as well as Elves, Batman as well as friends. I'm still not convinced about the minidolls, but they are growing on me. The sets are great though.
Lego dolls = Playmobil.
I suppose this is a sort of fair comparison, insofar as there's never been anything fundamentally bad about Playmobil. There are some key differences between Playmobil figures and mini-dolls, though: Playmobil figures generally aren't as customizable, nor as detailed, nor designed to accompany a building toy.
And of course LEGO sets are for mixing. Surely there's been enough crossovers between themes in the LEGO magazines and movies at this point that you should be able to tell it's not off-limits. It's perfectly fine if you don't want to mix themes, but it's just as fine if other people do.
Nothing really is off-limits. If you want to mix fleshy and yellow (heads/hands/torso) minifigs, and mix in minidolls as well, in your diorama's, than who is to say you should not do so. Some may disapprove, but that is not the person's problem incorporating all those figures into his/her creations and/or play scenario (in case you are talking about kids role playing).
When I was a little kid I was sometimes like that kid from the animated film Toy Story, mixing Lego with Kenner Star Wars action figures, building vehicles out of lego for my star wars figs, or even just playing with: SW figures; He-Man dolls; and Lego minifigures, plush animals etc. etc. all at the same time inventing narratives and stories for the whole lot not caring about toy brand, or intellectual property.
Now the only thing I mind (personally) as an adult (and a limitation as such) is: whether it is genuine Lego. If it is not real Lego then i don't buy it, and don't want it to become part of my Lego collection.
(Also love the card, since he does seem to play with his phone a looot).
Happy Valentine's day everyone, may there be lots of love and friendship today and the rest of the 364 days too!
I rebounded quickly this morning when another lovely soul posted #75055 Imperial Star Destroyer for $30, used - but in amazing condition with a near mint box. Now, I don't have it in my hand yet, so I shouldn't be too optimistic. But they've already told me they're not taking any other offers and are saving it for me. *FINGERS CROSSED*
...And of course that lead me to wanting some other Dimensions packs, especially the Portal and Sonic ones so I can pair them with my Gamer CMF.
Wait, what were we watching?
Made this for my boyfriend who's a fellow AFOL for Valentine's (plus I gave him actual flowers too and he bought dinner) :-)
