    Been updating my excell sheet for the Secret Santa UK delegation to make sure nobody gets the same Santee as last year. Only one more week to go for those who still want to take part. Especally EU/New-Zealand/Australia etc can use some more people :) Come and join the fun.

    My dad was doing some reading in the front living room when my Lego shipment was delivered (Old Fishing Shack) by Fedex. My dad saw the delivery hurl the box ten feet away from the door to the point where it slammed against the door!

    My dad told me quickly opened the door, called the delivery guy over to him and yelled at him for five minutes straight about how unprofessional he was.

    Fortunately the set itself was undamaged :) Blows my mind that with the bad publicity they received last time with that viral video that this is still happening.

    @Mr_Hobbles look under the Community and Events section for the 2017 Secret Santa. Also worth a look is last years thread where all the unwrapping happened :-)

    Need to remember to sign up for this year's secret Santa.  Also means it's time to organise the lug one too. Had a good lug meet yesterday, my to do list for Glesga Bricks is getting slightly smaller (yay!) and had a paper interview earlier with myself and the wife. Going to be a busy Lego few weeks!

    Make sure the Imperials don't see that phone. Those plans are too dangerous in their hands. Also, you ripped off part of the Iron Golem's chest! How could you? Those poor villagers, unprotected...

    Well, I remember there being a load of posts from new or newish users in Marketplace hoping to have 3 posted to them, but I don't remember many of the "regulars" asking for a favour. And regulars are the sort who would read this thread. Posting such craziness in Marketplace would certainly cause an explosion!

    I also realised I might only end up with 1 spare, what with Secret Santa coming along very soon ;-)

    Shouldn't you switch the X-ray and the X-rayed cat parts, so the arrows point towards the X-ray of the cat. I love the tile of the puppy looking up the cat's butt. My daughter has that one and it makes me smile every time I see it.

    Not sure if I'm classed as a regular but I would love just one of these. I'm located in Switzerland but have an address in the uk to get it sent. @iso3200 is my regular source for Lego so he can vouch for me as a buyer!

    My status is more of a dilemma that has to do with my giant arsenal form third parties such as Brickarms.

    These are all my unused third party made firearms:



    The dilemma is how to actually start using some of these little by little outside of law enforcement, criminal underworld, and military special operations. Not as simple as it sounds.



    These are Brickarms replicas of old rifles, such as a Lee-Enfield and a M1 Garand. These are pretty eaay to intergate into a Lego minifigure world. Many real life weapons like this tend to get passed down within the family.



    These aren’t as easy to intergrate. I have so many of these modern assault/semi-auto/battle rifles from third party manufacturers. 

    The main thing is not giving every single minifigure one, but, I gotta figure out something.

    All those weapons are just asking for a MOC Arsenal build.
    Terminator 2  Weapon cache?
    Survivalists hut, with underground bunker/arsenal?
    Police station Arsenal?
    Police Evidence Locker?
    Or just a Weapon Shop?

    well you get the idea. :)

    I’ve actually toyed with the gun shop idea before. If I ever get to making a building, of course. 

    I also have a gang of gun runners in my imaginary Lego city. I already have a SWAT Team as well. I like having all of those available in case I want to do some sort of scene with my minifigures, but I gotta start using more.

    I know there were a few of us asking in the thread (http://bricksetforum.com/discussion/27177/missed-out-on-lester), including myself. I personally am after at least three (one to collect, one for my dad, one for MOC materials), but I figured if people are still doing this for their fellow Bricksetters, I can wait further back in the queue, as there are others only wanting one or two them.

    If I had all of those I'd probably make Burt Gummer's Rec Room, I mean I'm just silly like that. We need more Tremors MOCs in the world, I don't think I've ever seen one honestly. Then again I haven't done much searching online.

    The first thoughts that came to my mind were the trunk of Dean's '67 Impala, or Barbara Kean's new lair on Gotham.

    More "even after 2 months, we couldn't be bothered to update the code names for the
    new SW sets to the actual names":



    So my local supermarket is selling #75530 Big Brown Bear, #75529 Poog Bear Guard and #75528 Goldi-Locks. No Pooh/Yogi name for #75526 though...

    Balance has been restored to the force in the xwingpilot household - I've now sold/traded all the polybags, keychains and minifigures I wasn't displaying. So now the only LEGO I'm storing (except for spare parts from displayed sets/minifigures) are two sealed #40308 Lesters, some black display stand parts and some CMF bases.

    That was my exact thought process. I just wanted to have em cuz they’re cool. Gonna have to give some to regular civilians too. Which I did:



    I really like that Brickarms Sturmwegher 44. Had to use it somehow.

    This story seems to be occurring more and more frequently in my life: 

    Seller posts a killer deal - Switchfoot finds said deal and extends an agreement to purchase - Seller responds with mutual agreement of purchase - Two hours later seller marks deal as sold to someone else - Switchfoot cries in corner. 

    The latest iteration had to do with two full totes of bricks. One containing every Monster Fighter Set as well as the Haunted House and several other smaller sets. The other containing several LOTR sets, most still in original bags. The price tag? $240. 

    I'm sure many of you have been at this for years and years who have suffered through the thrill of finding a deal, only to have it ripped from your hands, know how to manage the disappointment better than I. But the sting is still so bitterly real for me. It doesn't help when I've lived it over and over and over during the last few months!

    I just keep telling myself the next one will be mine! THE NEXT ONE WILL BE MINE!

    ^ Maybe the answer is to be in the right place at the right time, with the right price.

    Once a deal is struck a seller should not really take a higher offer, but greed is rife and a definite sale now at a higher price, is hard to resist, over a possible sale later.

  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 The Northwest, USAMember Posts: 1,611
    It definitely is being in the right place at the right time. Most of the sales I've missed out on I was the second one to respond. This one was a bit different in that it appeared to me I was the first to reach out to them and confirmed the intent to complete the transaction. Whatever...life goes on. 

    My wife is done hearing me mope around about missing this one yesterday. I better buck up quick or my buying green-light may disappear quickly!
