    Well, my Casey Jr. project only needs 110 more supporters to hit 1000, and gain 6 months. I wish I knew that many people...LEGO IDEAS - Casey Jr Circus Train from Dumbo

    @Modeltrainman have you tried promoting it on Reddit? Well-built stuff tends to get a lot of publicity there, in my experience.

    @560Heliport, thank you! You have no idea what this means to me! @veyniac, too! I could regale you with why, but that'd involve a new thread, filled with blood, tears, needles, countless LEGO pieces, a faith in God that can't be toppled, one scared kid, and countless elementary school teachers being super patient while that one scared kid felt dumb at math, and only wanted to design sets for everyone... My LEGO status today? Well, this. And a heart full of gratitude  to two fellow LEGO fans that I only know online. And that, dear fellow LEGO enthusiasts, is why Brickset is the best LEGO site, on the Web. I never feel small here, talked down to, looked down upon because my MOCs aren't big and flashy...

    Thanks, @Russell844! I feel like I should go cry manly tears in the corner...So blessed...Anyway, to keep this thread on track, the only new thing from me is that God is good, and my family and I finally got a Nintendo Switch. No LEGO games for it, because since we have Xbox and the like for those, I'm not sure why I would get them on Switch...But, I do see why some people wish LEGO Mario had the ability to act like an Amiibo...And why people wish DI and Dimensions were on Switch. Probably the most unique hardware I've seen in years...And, now I kind of want a LEGO case for the dock/Switch to build on...

    I said I wouldn't buy any of the UCS Starfighters but I got the A Wing yesterday. Now I'll wait for the others to be remade, which they will be. I also picked up the Technic Porsche as well.

    I've been trying to avoid that rabbit hole too, so I got the most recent system scale X-Wings & a couple of Solo Story TIEs for my eventual planned display to go along side my UCS Falcon. My excuse to myself is that they're more to scale next to the Falcon, but I keep seeing the A-Wing & it is a nice looking build...

    Just enough time for a spot of brunch atop the semi-disassembled Death Star before getting back to some more thumb-busting deconstruction work.

    Good point. Maybe @Huw'd move mine from a few days ago? Other than that, well, I check Brickset every day, but haven't been able to build for a while.

    I was in the process of rebuilding my Harry Potter sets from storage since I've finally gotten more to put them all together for a nice couple of photos, and what do I discover? Somehow at least five elements for Aragog are missing.

    I just can't understand it, I'm so careful with disassembly, being sure to put them in their own ziplock bags with their instructions, and yet somehow I lost a 1x4 plate, a 1x2 plate with bar on the end, a 1x1 half-round with bar on the end, that little L shaped piece in brown and two 1x1 square plates in light tan.

    I just don't get it, I mean sure I've got enough spares for the 1x1 square plates, those things are everywhere, but how did I misplace the crucial parts which are required to full construct Aragog?

    This would be the 2018 set, the cheapest one, which is no longer easy to find on shelves. Guess I'll be using B&P Missing Pieces or something to get them back, because I own over 700 currently disassembled LEGO Sets. And I have no time to re-build every set from the past two decades to find the one set with the errant parts in their bag.

    *SIGH* Problems of a LEGO Collector. Am I right?

    However careful you are, the odd few parts are always bound to go missing. I am similar in that I am very careful to bag up disassembled sets, but when I do find the odd part missing, I just add them to a "Replacements" wishlist on Bricklink and add them to various orders, when available. If I do find the part eventually, well, I've got a spare.
    I've actually also have the opposite problem. I have a small bag of parts which I have no idea the set they came from! I'll just keep them separate and re-unite them when the time comes. :-)

    @JudgeChuck:

    I have a few things that are where did I get these, but I'm so organized it's only a few parts. Mostly a 1x2 Chocolate Bar print tile from somewhere I haven't the foggiest and a 2x2 under dish that came off of one set during the huge disassembly project and got lost in a nearby reusable shopping bag that was holding sets slated for storage.


    Also a lot of broken plants. And I can't replace any of the purple or red ones yet since they aren't in stock at the moment. Oh well, at least I got some green ones to replace the Attack of the Wargs ones that broke. Or just some spares on the off chance I already replaced broken plants. Plants are the worst offenders for breaking. Just something about the mold I guess.

    Also threw in a couple of parts from one of my old Castle sets that was missing the parts. Unfortunately none of the gray elements were in stock. Nor was the 1x1 upper clip part. Oh well. I'm going to try out some Bricklink shops to get some older castle sets I used to own for some classic building fun.

    Looks like maybe it’s called AFOL TV? Maybe? Probably.
