    Don't worry @vizzitor, until we get our Lego room sorted out & finished, the only building @xiahna & I have allowed ourselves is event exclusives & any second-hand sets (just to check they are complete).

    @vizzitor You know you can always buy smaller sets and build them (you know, those small creator sets) and just have a separate box for them.

    Update from yesterday, turns out that the reason I had to contact customer services about my order was to tell me that 2 of the 4 sets that were supposed to be delivered in the lost parcel are now on back order so the won't be despatched until 23rd May.
     The R2 won't be coming at all because they have none but the Hoth Princess Leia key chain that I brought to take the order over the £60 for the R2 will be with me within the next few days (oh the irony).

    Fortunatly the very nice ladies at TLG customer services gave me back half of the VIP points that I spent for my troubles so technically the sets have now become over 40% off which made it sort of worth while even though I'll have to source the R2 from somewhere else. 
    On a more positive note, my R3-M2 and yet another Dart Vader Keyring turned up today. :)

    ^ Love this idea. Will be making a color reference table ASAP.

    No review yet, but I'm starting to think that a set of bounty hunters might be a rather nice addition to my display...

    @Yodalicious, you're not alone, a few people on the AFOLs of FB group have asked for parts lists/instructions, so I'm quickly creating two sets of details, one including glow in the dark translucent & one without.

    @xwingpilot, I will be getting one, just think including Dengar is a bit of a waste (considering he was recently in #75145, a large part of why I got it), we have 4-LOM but no Zuckuss... Hopefully another set is planned that will include Zuckuss.

    Just in case anyone else wants to build the tr-colour reference chart, I've created XML & LDD files, plus instructions. Made two versions, a 15 colour chart (the one I posted earlier, includes Glow-in-the-dark TR) & 14 colour chart (only current in use TR-colours featured). All the files are located here: http://bricksafe.com/pages/VorpalRyu/lego-tools

    Yes, the colour missing from the one I've built is the glow-in-the-dark translucent (for a total of 15 colours), waiting on a BrickLink order. I made the 14 colour version for those only interested in having translucent colours currently in use by TLG.

    My status : Finding out the Kylo Ren minifigure I bought a few weeks ago is a mishmash of real and fake parts. It's the takodana version and the lightsaber and helmet was fake :( it was part of a mixed lot that I've only sat to sort. Hopefully the only one.

    Wasn't going to do much else but wound up organising the animal shelf too...a lot of my animals are currently in use for the zoo so it's a bit hodgepodge

    Be still, my heart.  If you need more photos, let me know.  A brain surgeon did not create the display...

    The gold hydrolator remains my favorite part of the display.

    ^ My friend, I will not divulge just how long it too me using your photo whilst ensuring it all held together.  The dark base didn't help.  :)  I think I have it but yes please......upload at your leisure, please.  :)

    I did it for a laugh but have since taken a fancy to it.  :)

    My aptitude of MOC is of caveman level.

    I have no idea how I am going to do competent MOC of Himeji Castle from two Temples of Airjitsu.

    Big shout out to Lego as they really do have the best customer services department I have ever dealt with.


    And a warehouse choke full of oversized boxes and airbags ;)

    My may the4th order of 2 Scarif sets arrived completely smashed but they're sending replacements.(once I return others) My problem is one was supposed to be a gift this Friday so now I've to go buy something else. Anyone know what happens to sets they take back that are smashed and bashed?

    I haven't built any sets in over two months and I really miss it. I just have not had the time to build. I may have to take a trip to target later this week to pick up a new set.

    ^ the creator 3 in 1 is a fab little set, and without spoiling the build, there's a twist you find out about at the end (if, like me, you haven't read about it beforehand, or got any of the similar sets). Really made me smile.
