    Been building this A-wing and Tie-Fighter, last couple of days.
    Loved this set when I got it. £80 is pretty steep for what in reality is a pair of £25-30 ships. Luckily I caught it on the Asda online sale for £40 with an extra 10% of I think a couple of Christmas ago. The A-Wing is spot on and looks great with the polybag pilot that came out around the same time.

    Phew! Finished :-) 
    Looks great! And the sticker work wasn't quite as bad as I initially feared :-)

    Hunting for all the prices to the various LEGO Movie sets we have to put them back together. So far have all the mini figures and Emmet’s car rebuilt but still need to find the prices for the other days we owned(5 others)

    A lot of my cars, MOCs, official, or something inspired from another MOC, are either supercars or classics. In addition, I also like to pretend these are all in some imaginary LEGO city. Thus, I realized  something. What did I realize? Let me list five MOCs to show you...

    MOCS:
    Mclaren F1 LM: Real car sold at auction for $13,750,000 in 2015.
    McLaren F1: Real car valued at $12 million 
    Pagani Zonda Revolución: Real car had an MSRP of $2.9 million.
    1963 Corvette Grand Sport Roadster: Real car valued at $6 million to $8 million 
    Ferrari F40 LM: Real car sold for $3,300,000 at auction in 2015. Lloyd drives my LEGO one. Cole drives my F50 GT MOC, and there’s only three real F50 GTs that currently exist.

    And let’s not forget LEGO’s official GT40 and 250 GTO. The real cars are valued at about $3 million to 11 million(GT40) and $38 million up to $52 million(250 GTO). The real 917K is also worth millions. Dubai? Abu Dhabi? Pffft, plebians. This imaginary LEGO city is where it’s at. That’s what I realized.

    An advert for a LEGO rally car popped up on FB today on the WRC page.


    Looks a lot like #60113 with some custom printed parts. €44 though!

    Bit miffed. 2 boxes of CMFs put out at a local toy store. By the time I got there, there were 118 bags in total, yes, you guessed it.

    It really irks they pulled this move again. The policeman isn’t as rare as Mr Gold, but still. 

    My dark ages ended at the end of 2013, so while I wasn’t present during the height of the Mr Gold fiasco, I did do some digging later on.

    Finally got some TLBM Series two figs (Vacation Dick Grayson, Black Vulcan and Dr Phosphorus) and immediately took a few photos. Dr Phosphorus is waayy more awesome than he looked at first glance. I think I've reached the level of Master Bag Feeler--it took me about five minutes to find all three figs I wanted. :D

    @Fizyx, lucky you. I would live to get my hands on pretty much all those too. I haven't looked but I'm sure the aftermarket isn't to kind on there prices.

    Status: ambivalent. Told myself last year that I wasn't going to collect the Jungle subtheme. Too many other sets to buy, something had to give, so no Jungle.

    Saw 25% off all LEGO in a local department store yesterday. Bought 3 sets. Sale ends today so I'm heading in to one of the larger stores in the CBD to hunt for the remaining 4 sets. Already scouted eBay for related polybags and Bricktober minifigures. It's only a matter of time.

    Really like the theme, happy to have them. But so disappointed in my lack of self control...

    They won't sell you a box of tiles for $100 but sometimes they'll let you transfer the contents of an entire box to six large cups (with room to spare) and sell them to you for $96.

    The figs just started rolling into the Dutch toys stores, and the first box I got my hands on was already raffled trough. One fig was rather inconspicuously hidden behind the flap in the left rear corner... took it out, checked it on feel... and felt the policeman's hat :)

    also found the other ones I wanted, aside from the Racer and the Flowergirl, those I got from a friend who bought a bunch of figs from the lego store online. This is my haul for this year, I might add the horse-fig, but that'll be it.

    I follow an instagram user called legoman_scotland, he collects rare LEGO as well as new sets. He clearly has a few quid and runs some fun giveaways. Anyway, he bought a box of CMF18s the other day, took out the full set of 17 he needed and then posted up asking for a DM from anyone that needed minifigures still, he would give them away and post them worldwide for free on a first come basis. We've got five more to go for a full set so I sent a message with the ones we needed and we won! We're getting the Spider suit boy sent to us this week. Little Miss Speedman is very excited!
    If it's who i think it is..then yes he is..his father much more so and a bit of a philanthropist around this area..

    @bandit778 How can you call yourself a Brickset groupie, if the t-shirt is just lying there on the table!? ;)

    Received mine as well today, treating it properly:

    @sid3windr By proving you're a Brickset groupie by reading all homepage articles as soon as they're published, like this one from 17 April ;)
    Seems they're OOS now, but hopefully this was a success so @Huw might do another print run.

    I..... I only read the forum and mostly only the articles that get pushed to Facebook... Seems like I'm missing out and must address this shortcoming!

    Speaking of B&P, I used it for the first time because I wanted at least one set of the new style of SC fenders. White and blue were sold out but red was there.

    I want to use the red ones for a Ferrari 250 series car. I’m thinking 250 GT California or 250 GT Lusso.
