13 Days of building and 13 days of gifts. I've got to say, last year's Star Wars Calendar had way more variety than this years, and while I appreciate the idea of having a little scene, I'm a bit annoyed that there has been a lot of repetition and precious few clever builds out of the HP Calendar so far. I think the highlight for me was that Hogwarts Express model, highlight that isn't Minifigure related anyway.
Also extremely disappointed. The local LEGO Store had the Gingerbread House still yesterday, today being payday I was going to pick it up after work and build it over the weekend. Alas, today LEGO reports it is out of stock. Oh well, they still have the Fire Brigade set, and hopefully that won't sell out before I get off work today.
I did have a whole lot of other Lego stuff planned, including some new MOCs & plans to release, then our newest build team member showed up on Dec 5th (he's going to need a bit of training, he's not quite up to the task as yet), so we'll just have to see how things go...
This is not what I meant by 'break the seal', but congratulations!
Where do I get my Creator Expert Modular Building Owner's Club Card?
Yesterday evening while at the LEGO Store I decided to go for it, so I now have Parisian Restaurant. It was 30% off and the Manager really sold me on, hey, just get it. She knew just the right thing to say to push me over the edge.
Am I supposed to occupy my time with 'adult' activities like... doing taxes? Home improvement? Being a douchebag about whether something is a riesling or moscato?
Or, on the flip-side, should I be impressed if my nine year-old collects Hummels?
I normally tell people I prefer LEGO because they don't talk back, and they go exactly where I tell them. And stay there as long as I like...
I use mine for bulk purchases quite often. But when I see sets for 50% above BL high prices, I have a hard time pulling the trigger.
There was another local B&M that was open for a short time and then closed suddenly. I felt their prices and willingness to negotiate were substantially better. Maybe that's why they didn't stick around?
Yeah, the stock in our B&M turns over pretty fast, especially for used sets. Boxed sets tend to sit longer, which isn't surprising since they're more expensive. But for used sets... I know there's been multiple times that they've posted pics of new sets that have come in, and when I went in to check them out 5-6 hours later, the sets were gone. If they post something that I know I definitely want, I don't wait around before going to check it out :P
No spoilers from me after the film! May be there will be another thread for this for those to discuss the movie (and Lego sets of course!).
They haven't re-released that part in any Friends sets yet?
Friends seems to promote a (somewhat) healthier lifestyle and only includes juice and (plain) milk cartons from what I could find...
Not available on B&P either. However prices on BL seem reasonable; available in large quantities from US sellers for around 50 cents.
Whatever happens next, I am very pleased to have ended 2019 on this note.
