Nonetheless, there isn't an obvious way to meld double points, dabbing and Dak Prescott into a simple meme.
And I think a quadratic equation joke would be a bit much...
How do store your printed pieces so they don't end up having the images scratched off by other pieces? How do you store minifig parts with printing that you don't have on display so they don't have the same problem?
Would it be best to take a large baseplate and stick the tiles on there or does anyone have a better way to keep them in good condition without using too much storage space?
If this is something that should be moved to a separate thread, I'll open a new one.
Design flaw though, the roof didn't close with the Joker in it. Not sure if this is a known problem (staying away from the LBM thread to avoid spoilers). I first tried heightening the roof but for stability I solved it by putting a row of 1*2 trans clears where the windshields go, think it looks good that way but curious if other people came up with other ideas.
(The setup of the car, not your modification. There should be a cage atleast!)
Not many understand my obsession with LEGO, so I've always been very thankful for such a wonderful community to share my hobby/addiction with! A special thank you to each and every one of you here!
Here's to 5 more years :)
BTW, if you do not hear from me after April, it was @Legoboy , in the Library, with a lead pipe.
^ I don't deny it, it was me and Mickey. Death by Disney Castle.

This, and, the Bugatti were probably my most wanted sets of the first wave of 2017 Lego sets. i got the Bugatti the other day:
Somewhat amusing conversation with a BL buyer
He felt bad about ordering just one of a 19c part, so he ordered all 3 I had. I said this was nothing compared to some orders - yes, a single 1x1 stud or something like that. That's why I have a handling charge, so I can afford small orders. No gas - I print labels, leave packages out for the mailman or put them in mailboxes I pass anyway. It is fun, but there's a lot of work behind it.
today they ran out of disco batmans...
well... guess i m gonna wait for double vip now to get my asembly square.
when is double vip point time again ? i m not able to find any lego store calendars here in austria... i always end up on the german or US lego site.
is there a calendar for central europe maybe ?
@brumey - the german calender offers are valid for Austria & Switzerland as well, if I remember correctly.
No Double VIP announced in the March-April Store Calendar: http://bricksetforum.com/discussion/24647/store-calendar-for-europe-and-promotions-on-new-lego-s-h#latest
Bought TLBM accessory set that went out of stock on [email protected] quickly and one of the staff found Batgirl in a pile of CMFs for my daughter. Got the free calendar as well.
All this fitted neatly into my lunch hour!
apparently the national promo supplies are separate, #30607 still available on US [email protected] (and they've had #30546 available long past the 15th)
A couple days ago, I sorted through my box of clone brand bricks (partly to reuse the box as my LEGO inventory expands). got rid of the BestLock (recycled plastic trashed rubber), separated the TYCO (1 6.5x3.25 bag) and MegaBloks (2 10.5x10.5 and a 7x7.75 bag). found a few real LEGO and some non-building-block items. disassembled some piles of bricks, finally a use for the orange brick separator.
My status is 'playing catch up'.
Have been on a self imposed sabbatical for a while as I found myself becoming a collector of Lego Boxes and not a Lego builder.
With all the sales and deals that were going on before Christmas, my collection increased at an alarming rate, but due to quite a busy real life, most of my spare time was spent looking for these deals, and then not having enough time to enjoy the fruits of my labour.
Over the last month or so I decide to address this issue and kept away from almost all of my usual haunts that were used in the hunt for bargains and spent some of my spare time actually building a selection of sets from the backlog.
What started with the Y-Wing (which I finished mid-January) ended up being a Rogue One-fest of sets (All of which I thoroughly enjoyed building by the way).
Not an extravagant amount of building compared to some, but a hell of a lot from my perspective.
The down side to this was that I haven't been keeping up with forum life and it appears that I have missed quite a bit.
@snowhitie please pass on my best wishes to @bendybadger.
@Pitfall69 Sorry to hear about your losses.
@Legoboy Still trying to get your own car parking space at the hospital I see and I sincerely hope that you now have gas (in the nicest possible way). :)
To anyone I may have missed out, my apologies but I do still have a lot to read.
I'll tell bendy you said hi.
I still lots of interior finishing details to do. I was going to create a third floor but I ran out of steam and bricks. I think this thing is already pushing 1500 pieces, if not more. Need more tan windows. The roof over the clock will be in black. Missing lots of 2x2 dark grey half bows for the roof line. I'm also thinking of changing the front doors to tan or dark tan because black is a little too dark. I do have the elevator and sliding door working. Surprisingly my kids really enjoy playing with the elevator.
Got a [email protected] order today which included a Black Widow keychain. ordered it to have enough for a promo, may as well use it. small and light compared to my previous key ring, hope I don't lose it. didn't bother putting on a couple keys I rarely ever use. for what I do use, the ring was so tight it was hard to fit the bigger key heads. Ask Hawkeye about that. :P Speaking of sexualizing her, did TLG really need to print clear lines for her breasts?
I was very intrigued... (And slightly worried about the title of the CD ;) ) My husband popped the IT in the laptop and scrolled to the 1st instruction page (I wanted to keep myself in suspense not knowing what it was going to be).
I'm totally blown away with this 'little' surprise, the thought and creativity put into this is amazing.
To share the result I've got to rewind to a month or two ago when my son had to write and draw about his superhero. He chose his mum. This was touching to me as well since I'm not a very mobile mum and can't run around or take him to lots of exciting places like other ones. So I sometimes feel a bit like a failure and his gesture touched me. I shared the picture and feeling with iso who agreed that kids are great.
Without further ado, here's what I was sent...
And here's the final build:
So thank you very much - I'm very touched + had fun building. Curious what my son will say when he gets home from school :)
If the "No Stationary" sign is a reference to the Joker pencil scene from The Dark Knight... why has The Riddler been put in the cell with the No Stationary sign? Come to think of it, that almost sounds like something The Riddler himself would ask.
All I can think of is that The Joker escaped, and since the set has five villains in Arkham Asylum jumpsuits yet only four cells, they had The Riddler occupy the cell instead.
Also, status for myself today: I have enough likes to make my "Like" counter read as 2K, even though I'm not technically at 2,000 likes just yet. Still, yay! :o)
@iso3200 you're a superstar!!
Went up to the attic for the first time in a while (there's been decorating going on in these parts) to consider the situation re: sorting, by which I mean, to fully experience the mild alarm that's been at the back of my mind for a while. I really have been neglecting it, which is unfortunate because it also means I put off doing stuff like building challenges - i.e. what Lego's all about, at least for me.
So I cleared the trestle table and lined up all the ice cream tubs I've been saving (it's important to get your quota of ice-cream for both nutrition and Lego purposes), having decided to give in and implement 'good enough' sorting as opposed to 'perfect', which is, after all, an ever-receding goal...
Arkham has only 4 cells? No wonder batvillains keep escaping. But seriously, LEGO sets often don't have room for the number of people that would use the thing for real.
Might be hard to rinse paper ice cream tubs to be clean enough for LEGO. And what size are they? Half gallons might be too deep to be easy to use for tiny parts.
Is that where you leave it lying on the floor so you can deliberately stand on it?
If you put plastic iceCream tubs in the dishwasher you are pretty sure they are clean ;)
@Pitfall69 I have to admit at first glance I wondered about the name too :)
@omnium I agree totally.
Here only cheap bulk ice cream comes in plastic, like gallon (3.785L) round tubs. I'm in a supermarket right now, so this was easy to check.
1.5 quart (1.42L) rectangular paper is standard for various brands. Over the years they shrunk from half gallon cartons rather than raise price.
Premium stuff is that quantity or 1 pint (473ml) in paper cylinders.
But at least the toilet has a door, which is better than the toilet in the RV and house from #31052 Vacation Getaways :-)
