    Checking house prices in the US somewhere between a Wal-mart, Target, K-Mart, Toys R Us and Brand Store.
    And added to list of LEGO items is an assistant - one who will do some of the sorting, organizing and buying.
    I think I could do with one of them, maybe to list the used parts on BrickLink = most tedious job in the world.

    is disturbed to realize that she has now memorized Target's DCPI number for the Valentine's polybag. Useful, but disturbing nonetheless.

    My little girl must be feeling better she's got my log cabin with her emma's sun bed and the outdoor bakery inside it, making squeaky voices with her brother :) playing nicely together

    Listening as my husband and daughter build the Droid Escape and being amused at the many ways she can mess up saying R2D2 and C3PO.

    I would say my status is, To many legos and no where to build them right now

    Finished building 9492 Tie-Fighter. Good technique to firm up the wings.
    Fantastic looking display model as well.

    "Bought a couple more polybags from eBay this week. These little bastards really add up. And I wonder why I can rarely afford the big sets..."

    ^^ So true...

    Going to dedicate myself today to working on my various Lego projects, and try to resist responding to @Matthew's provocation to make me lose our wager. Have bitten my tongue many times already... :-)
  • richoricho Member Posts: 3,830
    The latest Hogwarts Train is finished. ^ thanks @LostInTranslation!

    My daughter is very taken with the Luna Lovegood figure which is now a firm favourite on the minifig front. Is this the best Potter minifig?

    Am also thinking about trying to start a Cloud City MOC today, but just need that spark to get started.

    Parting out another MMV, what a great parts pack! 1600 pieces for £50 off ebay :o)

    I have spent the last hour seeing how far I can get building the offical Cloud City set with the various parts I have lying around. The answer is page 13 of the pdf I found of the instructions, although am a little tired, so could have probably ploughed on with creative modifications. Only major change at the moment is that the table seats are blue, although I can't seem to lay my hands on the string piece with studs at each end that you need for the door mechanism. All I have is the chain style drawbridge string. grr

    My gut feel is I can build the whole thing, minus rare minifigs, using my own piece collection and perhaps £10 spend on bricklink for essential missing parts.

    and my docking bay and landing pad will be miles better...

    still working on my custom 10179 set. It may take me months. Ugh. But It will be sweet!

    attempting my first moc - turning hogwarts castle + battle for hogwarts into one modular building
  • MatthewMatthew Cheshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 3,734
    ^ Now that sounds like fun. Wish I could get started on my UCS Hogwarts, but I haven't got half of the bricks needed yet :-(
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ NZMember Posts: 4,179
    ^ I would have thought tower bridge might make a good parts pack for that
  • MatthewMatthew Cheshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 3,734
    I thought that too, but if I laid my hands on one, I could never bring myself to part it out, so I'd have to find two for a half decent price.

    I have the same problem, decided to build it to learn the techniques then part it out afterwards.

    Built first train (Yellow Cargo) with my son this weekend, now both boys are zooming it around, crashing it, and laughing hysterically. I may be looking down the long slippery slope of train collecting ....

    Wishing I had my LEGO at uni with me :'(
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,577
    @alstda: buy some more! I know, by looking at the dates of some of the sets I've got, that they must've been bought with my student loan :P

    My status: bored of my never-ending audits, would love to do some building tonight but duty calls, busywork to be done :(
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ NZMember Posts: 4,179
    just found out that the little boy who lives next door has just entered his 'lego phase' and am working out how best to blow his mind - or whether itd be unfair on his parents to set his expectations too high.
  • legirllegirl Member Posts: 105
    ^ Do it! He will be so over the moon!

    Irritated my 4 year old stepped on my Lego Spongebob Flying Dutchman's hand and broke it in 3 pieces and I can't locate the part online. I have to wait until morning to order it over the phone.

    Dismayed that my 9 year old son said that he thinks we have too much LEGO.
    And he has no idea how much more is hidden in the closets.
    Where have I gone wrong?

    Is the technic half-pin/stud I found under the bed a double extra from the Droid Tri-Fighter or did I lose one there before?
  • stagusstagus Member Posts: 256
    today I am mainly buying Fire Temple from John Lewis.....and drooling about getting home to my TH!
  • MinifigsMeMinifigsMe Member Posts: 2,844
    Wondering how it came to be that my husband builds more lego than me. He's loving the Technic supercar. Another slippery slope?

    Ordered a Fire Brigade on Target.com and is now paranoid about it after reading reviews of Target.com online.

    I ordered it off Target.com last night and it still has not shipped yet. I'm paranoid because I read reviews this morning about peoples experiences with Target and getting their orders canceled and such. Since this set is almost going to be discontinued, I don't want to miss such an extraordinary set. I should of have worded my 'status' correctly, sorry if I confused you.

    Looking at a boxed Town Hall and wishing I had the time to build it at the moment.
    Have decided to give my Tower Bridge to the boy next door to unbox and build, he should like that (but he wont like it much when I eventually ask for it back for the parts!)

    Waiting to be invoiced for a BrickLink order. Painfully, agonizing wait :(
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,577
    I meant to say earlier, my status is also "Loving the generosity of the Brickset community".
    I had a very nice person PM me earlier with an offer to send me a polybag on my want list, just because they had spares and not expecting anything in return. A random act of kindness that typifies why this is such a nice place to be :-)
