Today was a good day. Picked up Royal Talon Fighter Attack from TRU Canada, got a free Imperial AT-Hauler Polybag, found two sealed cases of HP on the shelf, opened one and got Percival Graves.Then I helped out a grandmother locate the Yoda's Hut set and her daughter pick up some Spinners from Ninjago. Whoever is getting those gifts is going to be thrilled.
No time for saving up until October 12th so I can get the Bricktober set that week, find some way to spend 75$ for three consecutive weeks and get JW, MS and HP Offerings from TRU Canada.
Billund, Denmark (26-27th September)
Unfortunately I didn’t get much time to actually have proper look or interact with the experiences at the LEGO House. (I’ll be back for sure!) In general the models were outstanding, the whole concept of the house and the contents were amazing! What caught me by surprise was a magazine I was featured was present in the LEGO House library amongst some great reading material.
The AFOL Event itself was worth the trip, loads of existing friends were present along with familiar faces and people in the AFOL community and LEGO designers. It was mostly about catching up with friends and even LEGO designers and having a laugh with them. I was fortunate enough to meet Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen he was kind enough to be giving out his employee Minifigure!
Majority of the AFOLs were leaving for Skærbæk Fan Weekend once the LEGO House closed early, so I had to also make my way back to the airport around 18:00, although my flight wasn’t until 22:35. Seemingly thinking it will be a quite few hours I was surprised to stubble upon Michael Fuller (LEGO Design Manger) who was grabbing a coffee before he traveled back to London. He was a very kind and entertaining guy, we had a conversation on my day in Billund.
Woohoo, I'm a fan of the number 9, so I really like the look of this, 4 in a row! Guess I need to throw a 10k party soon too :) PS I keep having problems with the spacing in the alinea's I'm sorry. It's only on this forum so I'm not sure how I can solve it. Doesn't seem to affect everyone. If I remember in time I can 'edit' and remove the spacing but it seems like I'm not always enough 'on the ball'.
First time I remember seeing someone with more likes than visits though :)
^ I almost didn't like that out of jealousy.
@Kerre Dunno about quotes on BL since I haven't tried, though I did get a reply asking which item I wanted a picture of, and that was five days ago. Still nothing lolzAlso is it just me or are the icons of who's liking people's post gone now? All I see are the number of likes.
Yeah, there's a thread about it... somewhere...

Went to the Great Western Brickshow today. Amazing models on display. Played the Fairybricks tombola and won a polybag and minifig. Saw @LostInTranslation and her cool goodgirl/bad girl bedrooms. Saw @Huw and his awesome GBC. Was wowed by Brick to the Past display. And generally enjoyed the day. I thought again the display numbers were down but the quality up.Have a few pics from today.The Monty Python montage by the entrance was hilarious.
Doing a @Legopants... My minime has been for a cruise with Cruella at STEAMCredit to @LostInTranslation for the build.
