    Finally managed to find the DJ polybags in a Tesco Extra in Galashiels (Scottish Borders). They were £4 each, or free with a purchase of any other Lego Star Wars set. Picked up three of them.

    (I checked, didn't work if the other set was a DJ. :p)

    Home commitments mean it can be quite difficult for me to find the time to build a large set, but managed to set aside some time this afternoon to build my first set for about 4 months.  

    Took a while to decide which one given my backlog - I may not be building but I'm still buying! - but in the end went with #75187-1 BB-8.  Really enjoyed it.  Given me the urge to make sure I make some more time for myself for building.

    I'm furious! Outraged!

    I bought 500 rories from Bricklink and have just received a box of Klix bricks!!!!!

    I thought BrickLink was only for genuine LEGO bricks? Needless to say, I've asked for a refund. There was no indication of the seller's store that they were selling clone brands.

    My May the 4th sets just came in, and have pushed my over the quarter million piece mark for my collection.   And I think there's probably another 40k+ pieces in 2018 sets just from what we know about stuff coming through August that is still on my list...



    EDIT:  I think this count is a little low too, since Rebrickable is missing about 13 sets that Brickset has (or can't map to them) although they are all admittedly small sets.

    Rebrickable is not too bad, although, I still have around 30 items that Rebrickable can't bring across from BrickSet & I've tried to log the issues with them, but those sets are still unresolved.

    I had no idea I could haul around a 20'×20' carpet around by myself.

    (I'm sure ever muscle in my body will let me know tomorrow never to do it again...)

    It's a custom from Minifigs.me I think, £12 new and thrown in a pile of assorted figures. I don't want it, but I needed an extra item to make it £10

    There is a phenomenon in certain parts of the United States whereby folks generally of Italian-American heritage convert their garage into a patio room.  It is strange.  It is called a Garagio or an Italian Patio Room.

    All of these feature - 1) Extra Refrigerator for drinks and 'overflow' for the vats of sauce that won't fit in the regular refrigerator; 2) a piece of exercise equipment nobody uses; 3) one's old kitchen table and couch; 4) a non-functional console TV that nobody watches but turns on randomly and 5) a photo or picture of Venice or someplace in Italy that nobody in the family has visited.

    Obviously, given my non-Italian heritage, I apparently voluntarily do this annual ritual.

    Today is that day.

    (Ironically, I am the only one that actually uses the room.  Cruel, cruel irony...)
    You have been watching too much "King of Queens"

    You have no idea.  I am trapped between that, 'Everyone Loves Raymond' and 'Seinfeld'...

    I need to watch all the episodes again and compare them to life in the Brickset Forum ;)

    I think the same way some people dont get Monty Python. I dunno.

    Been playing around with the minifigs from #76085. Justice League might have been stupid, but it was worth being released just so Lego could make these awesome minifigures.

    Early start meant early finish from work. This lead to a trip to the park for ice creams! Our local WHSmiths takes the foil pack LEGO magazine gifts off when he clears the old issues out and sticks them in a box to sell for £1 a time. Couldn't resist these for less than the cover price or a single issue.

    Seems like everyone is visiting Billund at the moment, people are posting about it on Facebook, on Twitter, on here... Wishing we had the time & the money to do so, oh well, maybe next year (hopefully, they'll still have #21037).

    Have a fun time @stlux, if you've got a sigfig, I hope you've packed them, apparently a pic with your sigfig is a mandatory requirement for AFOLs at Billund.

    Don't forget to get some rest @stlux before your tour starts. Exciting touring can be tiring! :o)
    Hope you have a blast! 

    Great pictures above too. Going to show my brother the new Eagle Coaster.
