    Went feeling up LM2 CMFs at Walmart while waiting for time to go to a super bowl party. Got the ones I had on my want list: Abe, Mrs Scratchenpost Post, Kitty Rocker, and of course Swamp Creature!

    I'll do you one better: why is a Kon Mari?
    I think I may have dodged a bullet today.  My wife was so focused on the bad over-parenting going on in the pilot episode (and the sub-titles), that we're 'done' with 'that show'.

    'I'll watch Japanese SuperNanny before some stupid organization show when the problem is bad parenting.'

    She did like that Marie Kondo 'scolds' her children.  That was the one positive take-away.  And sub-boxes in drawers.

    Starting to see TLG moving their distribution to a new warehouse in Australia as nothing but a negative, more stuff is going Temporarily OOS & staying that way until they list it as sold out, then marking as retired a couple of days later. To add to this, when an item is restocked, if it is even mildly popular, it will sell out in minutes & being able to be backorder seem to be a thing of the past. It's great that wait times for orders to arrive have been reduced & that free shipping kicks in $150 instead of $200 now, but it's pretty useless when most of what you're after is constantly OOS.

    Picked up some LEGO Movie 2 CMFs at the weekend, one of which was a Hula Lula with a rather unfortunate misprint... 



    Poor girl has had a bit of a wardrobe malfunction! I'm not normally too fussy about slight mis prints like this normally but the unfortunate implication of that one means I couldn't happily keep it. 

    I know they don't generally replace CMF parts but sent LEGO customer service a message anyway, got a reply a few hours later apologising and saying they couldn't replace the part but would send two CMFs out instead - with a message that said "I really hope one is Hula Lula for you." 

    Can't really grumble at that...though I do now kind of want to use the misprinted legs in a silly jokey MOC to make the most of them!

    Seems like the fabric skirt would cover it well enough.
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,214
    Admittedly it is at least the right side for the fabric skirt to cover, but the fabric pieces sometimes hold in odd ways when posing figures. 

    Like I say, I'm not normally that fussy but a misprint that makes it look like she's wearing ripped underwear is basically the line for me :-P

    Built my very first Architecture set - the Chicago skyline. While not the most thrilling of builds, it do feel like the buildings were captured well. Very happy to place it on the shelf!

    New York City will be joining it shortly.

    New York was a good build, my first Skyline set and got me hooked on buying sets for cities I've visited. Built Paris yesterday, interesting techniques used for attaching the skyscraper and Eiffel Tower was a fun minibuild to addon...

    I'm doing the same thing - just going for the skylines of cities I've visited. For me, being a non-world traveler that keeps me mostly to just the US cities. I decided to skip the Las Vegas one for now, because even though I've been there, I'm just not terribly impressed. I would really like them to come out with a Seattle one though, I think it would make for a beautiful skyline!

    I think there’s a lot you could do with Seattle as well.  But then my first set as an AFOL was #21003, purchased in the Space Needle gift shop when it came out.  The early sets were basically one part of a modern skyline set now.

    We're doing something along a similar vein, except we're collecting Architecture sets of places we want to visit, our most recent addition, LEGO House.

    Built #40186 yesterday, it's extra special for us because me, my husband and son were all born in the Year of the Pig!

    @Paperballpark ;
    I'm not sure what Mastermind is, but that looks cool!
    My LEGO status is: I'm really happy! My Up house is at 345, which isn't the best, but it's better than 0! Still hopeful more supporters will see it.

    Just unchecked #41613 Mr Incredible & Frozone from our collection, ordered it on the 5th of Dec, along with a heap of other Brickheadz, TLG sent all the others, but this has been awaiting new stock ever since. Rang up again (third times a charm, right) to see when I can expect it, to be told that it was retired on the 17th of Dec & so they can't fulfill my order at this time, but if they do end up bringing that set back at a later date, I'm be first in line to get one.

    The situation with TLG's new Australian warehouse is a complete & utter joke... They have one job!

    That sucks, especially since that set is still available over here from [email protected]
    The same happened to me last year with the first series of BHs, retired in Europe but still available on the US. 
  • jnscoelhojnscoelho PortugalMember Posts: 348
    I guess I spoke too soon... It was available earlier today, but I went to check just now and it's sold out.

    Earlier this week we were hit with a fairly major snowstorm for our area and I was snowed in on Monday. I had all these grandiose Lego dreams for the day that were derailed about 4 minutes after my kids woke up and saw a foot of snow. So be it. The snow day was a blast!

    However, we have a forecast for another 10"+ of snow for Friday night into Saturday with potential of more Sunday night into Monday and Tuesday. 

    I've already informed my wife that I'll be having some building time on Saturday. She quickly informed me that the kids will be joining me for at least some of it. A win-win in my book. 

    Bring on the snow!

    Watched The Lego Movie 2 with my wife & kids yesterday.

    I think it's not as good as the first one, namely too many close up scenes with the figures in dialogue and one of the songs drag on for too long. Overall the movie doesn't seem to have as many Lego models and background sets as in the first one, it feels like they're cutting corners here and there.

    My wife almost doze off, though my girl seems to enjoy it. :)

    I imagine shipping would kill it, but I saw them yesterday in a local supermarket if you really want a set.

    #80102 finally turned up today after having to source one elsewhere due to Amazon JPN over-allocation. Ended up roughly the same cost from the other set anyway.

    2019 CNY complete, for now...

    I'm hopeful and grateful. LEGO kindly helped with an order problem,  and I'm hopeful my Up house can gain more supporters. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/f8b37d14-140b-4d3c-a43c-04b246421ffc

    Went on a daddy daughter cinema date to see TLM2. Off set shopping tomorrow now my child imposed ban on sets until after we'd seen the film is lifted!

    Have been on the lookout for the TLM2 CMF over the last week, but no luck in any of the stores I check. Yesterday evening doing some last minute grocery shopping I happened to stumble on one box on the lowest shelf of my local supermarket. 1 row of 19 packets, 2 rows of 20.
    Grabbed a row of twenty without feeling any, and absolutely happy today - got the whole series!!!
    This is the way they should always be packaged, would save a lot of time and strange looks when feeling the individual packets!!

    It's sad to think that Australian AFOL might have to start making contacts in the EU, UK & US to be able to get stuff. As it is, apart from several Brickheadz that went retired after a brief availability at [email protected], a couple of the plush minifigures apparently never even made it to our [email protected] portal. They were slated for release through TRU, but by the time they got them, staff were under orders to repack them & send them straight back, so we've got no way of getting Kai locally. Rumours are also doing the rounds that the Dragon Dance Guy & Valentine's Pup Brickheadz, currently OOS, won't be coming back in stock either.

    Going to make a phone call & see if TLG can at least remove the Incredibles Brickheadz from my order, cause knowing my luck, I'll organise getting one elsewhere & miraculously TLG will get them back in stock.

    I didn't feel like this warranted a whole new thread, but am wondering if there is a way to add a "partial" set to your Brickset collection? Namely, I own the set, but not the figs. Is there a way to back the figs out of my "owned" figs?

    I just got two of the TLM2 CMFs today! That might sound a tad puny after all the Bricksetters buying whole boxes, but the two packets contained The Tin Man and Apocalypse Swamp Monster. Pretty awesome, since Tin Man was THE main minifig I was after and even more awesome 'cause there was no package-fondling involved! My mom picked them up for me after I got out of oral surgery (which I highly recommend you avoid if at all possible).

    @Switchfoot55 Brickset has a 'minifigs missing' collection flag for exactly this purpose. You can find more information on how to enable this here.
