(Yes, a love of data analysis and too much free time is a dangerous combination!)
Beginning to regret ordering this as for Mr fat thumbs here, that is a lot of opportunities to mess things up.
Happy to finally be able to take and share a photo of these lovely goodies that a team of AFOL friends made sure got to me last week: I managed to miss a get together a week past Saturday. (Note to self: dumbassPad doesn't delete photos properly for 30 days, remember).
Huge happy thanks to @khmellymel @CommanderRaab @GoldJono and @FraserDall.
Yay! The little red man is finally mine!!!!!!!!!!
Loving the ooooh oooooh trans blue elements in #40245 too! :D
well i have the problem that i wish to own more set's then i have the budget for.
i have had to make list's.
"set's i will get" this is for set i will get as soon as A, there price drop's to a good price point of that set, B, i also have the cash at the time the set is on offer.
the next list down is "set i like but dont have to have." set's on this list i will get if i see it at a good price. and have the cash. and am not trying to save for a set in the "set's i will get" list.
next list is "big stuff i like to get when there are no other stuff i need to buy and have the cash" most of the stuff on this list is D2C sets that i think are cool that i would love to own but the price is to high and there are other set i have to get 1st. so them get pushed down to this list ( SHIELD Helicarrier, Disney Castle, death star) are just some on this list.
my last list is the same as the list i just said about but for Sub £100 set's. or as i call it small stuff.
all the set's on the list's are set's that if i had endless flow's of cash i would get asap.
but as i have to budget. and can not binge buy £10,000 of lego sets in one go. making a list of what set i wish to get. and what set's i can live without is a way of life!
it's the system jangbricks use's. it works well for me only 5% of all sticker placed after i start using this system are placed wrong. (off line and so on.)
ps i know i did not explain that well i don't know how to explain it better, i just dont know the right words to explain it. let alone spell it.
Trouble is, along with the big hand issue, I also have what's commonly known as dodgy eyesight (another not so welcome bonus from the people who brought me old age, creaky joints and ever growing nose hair).
What looks straight when I line a sticker up to apply it nearly always looks off just after I finish pressing it down, it drives me nuts.
Not sure the million euro invoice will not come in the mail, but hey. Fingers crossed. :)
Then in 5-6 years you can swap them around and rebuild the old ones...
Never seen them in bars like this before, so I felt duty-bound to try one (reduced from £3.00 to £2.40 at Tesco).
Already eaten half of it. Ruddy deelish!
S'pose I'll have to share the rest with Mrs. Legopants :-/
@SirBrickalotOfLego - you mean like this?:
yet i think you post more on here than when your at home.
this is a copy of a post in the "what are you buying right now".
Edit - dag nabbit! I'm off to find rectangle Reese Peanut Butter... cups?!?!?
(Sorry, no memes makes me resort to calamity.)
Went to the coast - sigfig in pocket - and saw DJ Shadow at the Brighton Concorde.
This is problem. My partner knows about my Lego habit and tolerates it. This box oozes big-expensive-setness so there is a significant risk of perturbing the status quo.
I therefore came up with the following cunning plan:
I repackaged the 45-or-so bags in a number of boxes containing four stages each. Original goes in the loft. A medium sized set box for scale. Doesn't look so bad now does it? Please tell me it doesn't look so bad!
How are you planning to mask the big-expensive-setness as you build it though? Will you hide each level as they're finished and then say it's a 3 in 1 creator set and the new floor is the 2nd or 3rd build?
Then indulge your Lego mistress to your heart's content. :)
Of course not. The missus lives with two LEGO-crazy boys and an AFOL. She knows only one creator build is possible at the same time. She knows her Ninjago from her Nexo Knights, Lego City and Creator sets so she'll very likely know this a Ninjago Movie set :D
The plan is to make the set appear together with some Ninjago sets we already own - Temple of Airjitzu, city of Stiix, #70738 Destiny's bounty for instance. Ninjago City is still built on a 32 stud base plate like modulars so not that big compared to those. It's far more dense though.
@Venunder: That's a bit drastic as we still get along quite well. Divorce also seems counter-productive to me as I'd have to spend far more time on certain household chores so there'd be less time for building :) And it's not that the status quo is precarious, it's that buying sets both at this price level and at full price is not my typical behaviour.
Also my GF is just at the "rolling her eyes" stage when boxes are delivered marked either K+N or Amazon, shakes them, yells "it's LEGO!" and puts them on the floor for me. A Ninjago City set more or less won't phase her anymore, after seeing modular after modular after modular and train after train :O
Excellent! So using the inherent ninja-osity of the sets to camouflage the new addition.
