    Seems I need more storage for my MOC parts collection, starting to have to split some parts between multiple trays in the racks I bought (I've already had to give the Black/LBG 1x2-2x2 Inverted Brackets their own tray). Might have to look at bigger racks for some of the parts, plus some more racks at the size I currently have.
    I have a similar problem. I broke down a huge MOC earlier in the week. Now I've got more 1x4 LBG bricks than fit in my tray, for example. Saying as the tray holds 200+ bricks, it's big enough for my general MOC needs. So I'm keeping "overflow" boxes with bagged parts that won't fit into the trays. When I come to need them, I'll have to search through a box of bags, but I'm ok with that.

    Tonight I will be watching Jurassic Park while building the new Jurassic Park set. Because that’s the sort of thing I do.
  • ArpieArpie Member Posts: 28
    Similar theme to @Yodalicious Goldeneye (I know it should be Goldfinger but Goldeneye is my fave) whilst building the Creator DB5.

    Goes to store, finds a fresh box of CMF 18, finds Policeman, leaves and doesn't buy it because reasons. Gets home, and is still debating whether to go back and get it or not.

    Added some more Dimensions to my collection.

    Originally only wanted to collect the fun packs, but after having bought PS4 about 2 months ago, decided to get the Starter Pack too. 

    Will be interesting to see what my kids think of this Lego interactive game concept.

    Bit peeved to discover someone has 'taken inspiration' from one of my designs. About 99.5% inspiration. It could be they happen to come up with an almost identical version of the same logo several months after i did mine but for various reasons it's unlikely they haven't seen it or pics.  

    I have zero problem with people building their own however this person is trying to sell it on ebay claiming it's their own and that they spend ages getting it right etc.

    They haven't sold any and it's nothing big or complex but it's just annoying me and I'm wondering if I should call them on it.

    /rant over
  • VorpalRyuVorpalRyu Member Posts: 2,318
    @nexander, call them on it, I had some turkey try to reverse engineer one of my microfighters, the Tantive IV & post LDD screen shots of it, claiming it's their design. Admitted through PMs that he ripped it, then after I told him to cut the shit, told me if I produce any more awesome idea, he might give it a second shot. It's bullshit behavior, there's nothing wrong in borrowing from others' creative ideas, but be honest about it, when I utilitise others' designs, I give credit where it's due, so should that turkey you're peeved with.

     think I just found some early releases!

  • ShibShib Member Posts: 5,477
    I might have bought the set with Ace the Krypto was lonely.

    For what it’s worth, I got chatting to the guy who served me and he told me they had the Harry Potter sets sat in the stockroom too but were told that they had to be very strict with the street dates one those. He definitely wasn’t confused with the Brickheadz as they had those out on the shelf 
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation Member Posts: 5,572
    @shib I'm in a quandary. A local independent toy shop had all of the new Harry Potter sets for sale on the shelf as of yesterday (no CMFs yet)... But aside from Hogwarts Great Hall they were all marked up above RRP.
    My instinct was to be patient but I am really really tempted to go back and buy something! 
  • ShibShib Member Posts: 5,477
    Hahaha, @LostInTranslation you could go and tell them that you know the street date and RRP and if they aren’t prepared to sell you some at RRP you’ll tell LEGO on them :-P
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation Member Posts: 5,572
    Nope not until I have my hands on the box of CMFs I've preordered from them!! 
  • CapnRex101CapnRex101 Administrator Posts: 2,364
    @Shib - May I ask which store has put them out early? I have a hankering for that Cloud Riders set so might go out and try my luck if there is a branch near me!

    Had a bit of time to build so went for it with #76110

    Not an amazing build, but brilliant to get more obscure superhero characters.

    76110 Batman Attack of the Talons

    Super dog buddies! :-D

    I recently made the Weekend Whip by the Fold my new ringtone, which has inspired some hilarious situations, the latest one that happened this afternoon. While checking the Lego section of my local Kmart, my phone went off, a couple of the kids recognised it & excitedly informed their parents, it also sparked a brief convo with me about what sets "I" had. After the convo ended, the kids informed they parents what I said, to which the dad quipped something about, that's what happens when you don't have kids, just as @xiahna walked into the toy section with the boys in tow (she had been looking at new slippers for them). There were a few jealous eyes as James started going over with me which sets we still needed to buy...
  • LegopantsLegopants Member Posts: 2,097
    In a continued effort to create shelf space for new sets, it's time to bid #9468 Vampyre Castle a fond farewell. Set disassembly, dusting off the parts, inventorising and bagging should keep me busy for a couple of hours...

    ^ Still one of my favourites, too. Funny story, actually - you see the 1x1 plate at the bottom of my avatar? That's not really a 1x1 plate. In fact, I don't have one in that colour. It's the end of one of the long slopes at the front of that car. I cropped the rest of it out.
  • BumblepantsBumblepants Member Posts: 7,725
    I never got the full set but I bricklinked the sand green car parts and removed the weaponry and made it into just a nice looking convertible. Nothing too special but one of my favorite cars in my city.
  • LegopantsLegopants Member Posts: 2,097
    The once handsome #9468 now reduced to a dust-free pile of sad-looking bricks :-( 
    Looking on the bright side, I've made space for a modular :-)

    ^ And it's in a Heroica Fortaan box! We're not so different, you and I...

    I never actually owned Heroica Fortaan - the box was used for shipping a BL order, I think :-D

    My son and I have been having fun at the coast with some 3 in 1 sets, especially the roller coaster is so great, even the most simple one is really fun. 

    Plus we got all the figures from the #60202 outdoor people pack, the best one so far I think. Cool torsos, cool new pieces and the design of this new tent is very nice too.

    Did you resist @LostInTranslation buying the marked up HP sets? I'm anxiously awaiting them too...
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation Member Posts: 5,572
    @snowhitie no I didn't give in to temptation, mainly because it was too flippin' hot to contemplate going back to the shop! 
  • Addicted2OxygenAddicted2Oxygen Member Posts: 470
    PSA: The 45 degree slope piece from the big rolller coaster ( is now available from bricks and pieces. 
  • Jern92Jern92 Member Posts: 893
    Resisting the temptation to pick up the newly released Harry Potter sets in NZ because they might be cheaper in Malaysia (one of the perils of having lived in 2 different countries, and annual travels between the two)

    Got some Harry Potter CMFs at Barnes & Noble, got Graves, phew, but upon opening PJs Harry I cut through the cloak.... :(

    Worst part was that was the only one of him left in the box so now I have to look elsewhere....

    Small Bricks and Pieces order turned up:

    dismantling and boxing up.  Some sets will be boxed completely built, others torn down and stored back in their original boxes.  From there what to do with them, status TBD
  • Jern92Jern92 Member Posts: 893
    Huge dilemma; to buy both the Hogwarts Castle and the Harry Potter sets, or to buy just the Hogwarts Castle?

    It'll take a serious bout of saving to be able to afford both, and perhaps letting the Carousel and Rollercoaster go, but it would be nice to have a complete collection of something for once. On the other hand, they cost a serious chunk of money, and how would I go about displaying what is basically the same building in two different scales?
  • Pumpkin_3CK5Pumpkin_3CK5 Member Posts: 805
    Ayyy courtesy of Barnes and Noble. More Wizarding World stuff.

    For anyone wondering where Colin Farrel is, he's In Bruges.

    Jk he's in the same spot as the policeman: third or fourth from the back, left row. At least, in the box I found. Fresh case I believe since all of 'em were present.

    Been in contact with LegoCS, as I am awaiting a BnP-shipment to arrive. Came home on Tuesday to find a half-in-the-mailbox note from the courier (DHL), saying that I wasn't home, but nothing indicated if they would return tomorrow, or delivered it at a parcel station or at a neighbour...
    Yesterday same thing again, and in both cases the tracking code on the note didn't work.
    CS was very understanding and agreed to re-send the shipment, gift me 100 VIPpoints ánd amend the order with some bricks I had forgotten to order. Kudo's for them.

    Also, been playing with some of my newish sets in LDD:

    Something for the next BnP-order, I guess :)

    Trip to Legoland today. Bought the new exclusive Castle and dragon set and some polybags and had a great day.

  • Mr_HobblesMr_Hobbles Member Posts: 321
    This morning I had a few hours free, so I decided to do a test. I put all the Power Functions 2.0 components together (WeDo 2.0/Boost/Powered Up) and made a fully automated train layout in my living room.

    All 100% Lego, no modified or foreign components. All the hubs talk to my laptop via Bluetooth and drive the trains and switch motors.

    I love Powered Up! :D
  • bookmumbookmum Member Posts: 1,512
    That looks very refreshing. 
  • snowhitiesnowhitie Member Posts: 3,078
    Very cool drink @stlux , everything to cool down.

    I actually own a very similar bathing suit (dots instead of stripes) and have a great hammock, but it's not with me at the beach ;) Still, thinking cool thoughts helps (and the thunderstorm that we just had has made the tempertature drop a bit!
  • FowlerBricksFowlerBricks Member Posts: 1,731
    ^That's a cute little set.

    Can't decide if I should be proud of passing up a bin of Lego at a Thrift store today or if I should kick myself for passing it up. 

    As usual, it was horrendously overpriced for a thrift store. I too often see boxed sets for 25% over the RRP. No thanks. 

    This was a bulk bin. I saw a number of Star Wars figs in it. From what I could see, at least three complete sets including and AT-TE. But at just over $100 for the bin, I couldn't pull the trigger. 

    Back to OfferUp and Facebook Marketplace for some "better" deals.
