What's your LEGO 'status' today?



  • RecceRecce Tiny Little Red DotMember Posts: 919
     I really need to control myself.

    Last night while surfing saw some loose Lego bricks on ebay and started clicking to buy, ended up making 6 purchases, and this is on top of another 6 or so purchases over the past week.

    My wife's not going to like this...

    Can I wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas! Yesterday was too busy and today was too tired! Built a couple of sets with my son, and tomorrow will be my turn, hopefully. You guys will know if I post a picture or two!

    @ Recce my mom who keeps saying I need to get rid of inventory doesn't like the LEGO buying sprees either. Speaking of which...

    January 2018 catalog arrived
    #10260 Downtown Diner is too big and expensive for subject matter I'm not interested in, though I may have considered a smaller version. I first thought this with Old Fishing Store
    The Building Bigger Thinking sets look like a great deal for the piececount and some simple minifigures, good variant of the classic brick boxes, not in a rush to get any but may easily add some to an order.
    None of the other new sets pictured stand out to me, and not just because of price.

    I am very very jealous @Speedman29. Can I come and live at yours?  
  • bookmumbookmum londonMember Posts: 1,220
    Also love all the little houses! 
  • Speedman29Speedman29 UKMember Posts: 1,620
    @bookmum you can have the sofabed if you like or theres a double bed in the Camper on the drive!

    The houses were made by Elf on the shelf, who delivered a new numbered one each day of advent.

    Built a couple of sets over the last two days with my youngest:

    Green Lantern is probably feeling rather left out of the Spiderman (Spider-Mans? Spider-Men?) Shenanigans - wrong universe, my son said.

    @MaffyD seeing the bombsite that is you table makes me feel better about the piles of stuff all over ours!
  • MaffyDMaffyD West YorkshireMember Posts: 2,786
    @Speedman29 - cheeky beggar! I'll have you know that this is a carefully arranged "pile-o-pressies" and that the position of each follows a choreographed 'order of play' for 2 of my gang and myself over the coming couple of weeks! Or at least that's what I told my better half when she noticed the mess. I think she's humouring me because it's Christmas, but I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth!

    Also, I thought about the background 'noise' when I took the photo, but presumed that some forum members might like to guess at other presents they might be able to spot... :-)

    Got this today:

    Got my first 2018 set today. Olivia's Bedroom. Not the worlds most exciting set but it has the New Olivia. So I had to get it really. Had to!!

    I do like the new torso prints on the 2018 Friends sets, but will wait for deals rather than buy whole sets

    Finally got thought to the Cologne-Lego Store to make a reservation for the Diner #10260.
    Called about 60 times the last 2 days.
    Going to get it on Wednesday, as a birthday gift to myself on my GFs BD. ;)

    Just building some sets from my backlog at the moment and decided to build both #60154 side by side.

    Spot the difference:

    I did read on here that the printed newspaper 2x2 tile with the tree on the cover was being replaced with the firefighter rescuing the cat. The #10259 Winter Village Station I bought had the latter piece in the set and the former in the instructions but I didn't know Lego had changed over during the span of one set.

    I actually built this yesterday, but, since I failed to build a Bugatti Type 35 today, I’m leaving this here. This is my attempt at a Saleen S7.

    Happy new year/ best wishes for 2018 to you all!

    My son just built BB-8 today. I have to say, he is just awesome. I love the head movement, and the tool release. Quite the awesome set, and will really add to his display of Lego robots.

    Happy New Year!

    I like big wings and I cannot lie.

  • CaptainLegoCaptainLego FloridaMember Posts: 385

    The rear wing felt too wide with the 1x8 tiles, so I used 1x6 tiles.

    Happy New Year to all AFOL. :)

    Finally watched the Ninjago Movie and enjoyed it very much! Even more than the Batman Movie, in fact.
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,773
    Me too.  I really enjoyed it - couldn't stand Batman.
  • YodaliciousYodalicious DagobahMember Posts: 1,366
    I need to watch it again. My “like” order was the release order...TLM, TLBM, TLNM...but I’ve only seen TLNM once, so it may grow on me.

    Yeah, after watching it I don't get a lot of the hate for it.  It was a pretty good movie, and certain parts of it were downright hilarious.  I don't think it had the tons of inside jokes I was seeing it get panned for either.  The only thing weaker than TLBM was the IP's popularity itself, I feel like.  And I guess TLBM and TLNM definitely are different kinds of movies, so if you went in expecting the same pacing/storytelling/etc to TLBM then you would be disappointed.  But if you could put that aside, it was a good movie.

    I haven't seen a '2018 resolutions' thread so apologies if I'm miss-posting;

    I am in desperate need of a storage solution for my instruction manuals. I've filled a chest of drawers and a couple box files with the hundreds of booklets I've acquired. I really ought to look into this

    Happy New Year, Bricksetters! It’s going to be a fun 2018! Speaking of which, I have an update, in a minute...
  • MaffyDMaffyD West YorkshireMember Posts: 2,786
    Watching Avengers Assemble right now... great inspiration for my build!
  • MaffyDMaffyD West YorkshireMember Posts: 2,786
    Also, anyone seen this:

    IMO, it's a bit naff. But would be interested to know others views...
  • MaffyDMaffyD West YorkshireMember Posts: 2,786
    @snowhitie - I do have a LIFO system! That Helicarrier is from when it was first released. You should see what is under/behind it...
