    Sorting, selling sealed/opened boxes, Lego store containers of unused parts. On way to changing career, at least trying and need room for new equipment. Not going to completely abandon lego but going from thousands spent a year to just a couple key sets. Have sold 60% sealed set in last 18 months and still so many to go image is only a 1/4 of what's left.

    ^Kendo Kai is my favorite from that series! I've been trying to get him from the start. Five CMF's later and I still haven't found him. Even through feeling and I'm pretty good at it. Is he a more rare minifig? Is there less in each box?

    ^ I think there are 20 ninjago collectable figures, and there are 60 figures in a box, so 3 in each box.

    I certainly hope so!  I've got sealed TLBM and TLNM cases that depend on it.

    I am a five-tool player.  Volume and quantity...

    ^ I'd heard of a tool but never that.

    A lot of breaking down and sorting white pieces to build and MOC a new WV next year. My son helped and SW we listened to Winnie the Pooh. Quite relaxing. I couldn't resist to do a tiny bit of building though, ready for a summer village (right @Redbullgivesuwind )

    I really liked the original 'treestand' feels very real to me, usually something repurposed. With special thanks to @bandit778.

    I don't need any more Lego ,I just want All the Lego, I love to build it ,I don't break it up but it's in boxes ,30 euro sets max  so nothing big ,trying to only get truck stuff(love SCANIA) but remembering as a kid and the joy of building gives me that priceless fuzzy feeling, now my 4yr girl and nephew get some benefit of my  stuff but I do go President Business slightly when they play with the toy, I'm getting less PB the more they play so it's a form of therapy too.

    Lego powerlunch/minifig rum. As I’m in the Leicester Square Store, I was just told the Lester purchase limit has been lifted!

    Just after getting a bunch of Guards from Hamleys.

    ^^Hmm, would it be a good idea to get those older receipts out to gain those VIP points for all those Lesters I've purchased for international friends? Is it worth the risk of being blacklisted from the VIP program or the store itself? I'm sure I picked up over twelve for sure since they've been out.

    In other news, I built 4 small/medium sized sets this weekend. Good start to the year!

    My Lego Status is more in the form of a question at the moment. 

    In using BL data to price sets for sale, should one consider the location of current sellers as meaningful data?

    For example, if only 1 of 40 listings are selling in the USA, could that potentially increase the dollar amount at which I started the pricing if I intended on selling only in the USA? Obviously at some point it doesn't work if my price is more expensive than buying from another seller and paying the shipping/taxes is cheaper. But my Lego brain wheels are turning and I'm curious.

    Would anyone be able to offer some thoughts on the matter?

    It depends on what people are willing to pay and where they are. When I sell on Bricklink, I usually try to just be the lowest price, but I also only sell when I want to get rid of something so that works for me. My advice is just try listing at a higher price. You can always change it if it doesn't sell.

    I ordered parts via Bricklink in preparation for when I recieve this book:



    Can’t wait for it to arrive. I’ve seen a couple of previews, and it looks really good. I plan on building the Ferrari 488 GTB from this.
    Due to impatience, I learned that the 488 is actually 8 wide. However, I still am looking forward to this book. I’ll be challenging myself by building the larger scale cars in this book in SC scale. 

    As for the 488, it was the first to be shrunk down. I used the preview on Google Books+the final result on Flickr:



    I was REALLY impatient, okay?

    I reckon I'd like a parking lot to the left of #10260 Downtown Diner, so I figured I need a few different colour cars to park there. So I've built a white version of the Cadillac from the set.

    I've realised that I don't have any spare white wheel arches in that style. The only ones I own are in Parisian Restaurant, and I'm not breaking that down. So Bricklink it is!

    Thanks :-)

    That was the original plan, but I only have the new 1x3 jumper plates with two studs in black. I know how to hack it to use 1x2 jumper plates with 1 stud, but the the front headrests are a bit loose. I guess as it's only for me displaying it, it'll be fine.

    I also used 1x3x1 doors with a 1x1 bricks and a 1x2 panel underneath because I don't have any 1x3x2 doors.

    There's definitely one in one of the '89 Forestmen sets - so it's been around for a while, if not commonly used! (At least I think that's where I've seen it before!)

    I prefer the grey mudguards actually. All the white is a bit too much for me, the grey breaks it up nicely and the red looks great on the interior

    Good luck getting rid of that Alien Mothership.  It took me forever to get rid of that thing.  Although, after 6 years, it looks like it's almost at MSRP.
