    Classic fans are definitely getting the love today (sadly not the Pirates fans though)! Reveals on front page.
    Is Barracuda Bay still available? That feels like the third companion piece.

    Loving the new classic sets. Sadly due to space I think I'll only be getting the Galaxy Explorer.

    Nope, it hasn't been available since the end of 2021.

    Wife bought me #76203 for Father’s Day. I really only wanted it for the minifig to add to my Hall of Armor. $10 for a set is much cheaper than many of the Ironman minifig options on Bricklink! 
    We just got back from the ER. Our toddler blessed us with a split open head and six stitches. He’s all good now and napping. Happy Father’s Day to all the Brickset dads out there!

    I had a nice Father's Day yesterday which included even a bit of building time with my son. I started in on #76832 Buzz's XL-15 Spaceship which I'm really enjoying so far! He also got me #76831 as a FD gift which I'll build next with him when he comes back over on Wednesday (he moved out on his own last November, so we have to make play dates now - haha). He's building on #31120 which is quite a fun set I must say! Even got my wife to build a little, she worked on #31128 which my son bought her for Mother's Day.

    Today’s status: I'm about to turn inside out waiting for several exciting purchases from BrickLink, eBay, and Facebook marketplace over the next few days.

    Still waiting on my Muppets CMF from the first of June. Contacted CS and they have given the value of $25 on my VIP points and hopefully they will be here in a week.

    Just got back from an extended weekend Father's Day camping trip in the North Cascades National Park. If anyone is looking for a true hidden gem, I'd highly recommend checking it out! 

    While we were camping, the family surprised me with #75330 Dagobah Jedi Training! This was definitely on my Want list, but something I figured I'd have to luck into further down the line. It's my first new LEGO in several months and, despite the pending move in the next five weeks, I'm tempted to build it and take it a part just to scratch the itch!
    DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!

    Trying to revive #2152 to add to Star Command's ranks. It'll be a good ground unit for them. I know I have two, but haven't found all the pieces, yet. Ah, well. In God's time, not mine. Found some white antennas for my buddy, @Switchfoot55, but they're very expensive, pondering icicle solutions that won't break Hamm, still getting parts into storage, Lord willing, that'll be done soon.   I also think @Switchfoot55 should start Dagobah.

    Also, since my edit time expired, 3957, if inverted makes an OK icicle. Fat, in places, but until LEGO actually releases the antenna in clear, or white...

    While I've camped all over the PNW, I've never camped there. I'll have to add it to my "wish list" of camping spots! Sounds like a nice Father's Day - I hope the weather held out for you OK up there.

    Not sure what type you are looking for but there is a white antenna…

    @KungFuKenny, I posted in the Winter Village thread about wanting to do a tree from the scene in Frozen where they meet Olaf for the first time. There are trees that have frozen branches hanging out. 

    After seeing the images from the new Avatar set and the tree that is included, inspiration struck. Unfortunately, the longer antenna's used in that set don't come in trans-clear or white (except for a few out there at $3+/each). I'm trying to think through alternatives to achieve a similar look and this is one part that I've looked at as a potential solution.

    After about a week my order has shipped. Was a bit worried because I only really made the order to get the Forestmen GWP.

    My LEGO status? Blessed! So, yesterday, I mentioned trying to get #2152 back together, and finish the second one. Also, yesterday, I was digging through boxes,(a lot of LEGO+ moving, pretty sure we all know how that is.) I found one of the aforementioned sets, so now 1 is complete! But, then, God wasn't done! I found Luke's X-Wing, got that completed, Captain America's Jet was done, except the wing hinges broke. Going to have to replace them. Why they wanted the wings under so much tension, then to be slammed forward, I don't know... Going to finish the 2016 Droid Escape Pod today, Ghost, next, then all that stuff will be set aside to not sort... God is so good!

    For my own status, recently I have been collecting 8-wide Speed Champions sets and now have all the ones that I want from the current line-up. #76902 McLaren Elva arrived from Amazon yesterday.
    I also managed to pick up #40346 LEGOLAND, which I have wanted for a while and a friend recently visited Legoland Windsor, so picked up #40429 Ninjago World and #40473 Water Park for me, which are nice additions to my collection of Theme Park-related sets.
    Other than that, I have built #76956 T. rex Breakout, which is a lovely set and #21333 Vincent van Gogh - The Starry Night, which blew me away. Even my Lego-averse other half commented that it looked amazing! I might try to persuade her to allow me to add it to the small amount of Lego that we have in the Living Room (#10281 Bonsai Tree and #10283 NASA Space Shuttle Discovery).
    What else? Err, #75330 Dagobah Jedi Training Diorama, #31129 Majestic Tiger, as well as all of the new Lego City Space sets are waiting to be built, along with the first wave of Lego Minecraft sets for 2022. I've not yet started collecting the second wave, but did point out in the Lego Minecraft thread elsewhere on the forum that 2022 has already smashed the record for the number of Minecraft sets released: EIGHTEEN so far!

    @JudgeChuck good luck increasing your Lego display in your lounge! My wife said when we moved that there'd be no Lego apart from my Lego room and the kids playroom. We currently have #10225 R2-D2, #10302 Optimus Prime and #76217 I am Groot in the bedroom (as well as several Lego Art sets on display and 2 minifig display cabinets. In the lounge we have #10281 Bonsai Tree and #10280 Flower Bouquet and a smattering of small sets and polybags on the shelves. I find it's better to ask forgiveness than permission!!! 😂

    I'm thankful my wife has a limited tolerance for LEGO displayed around the house. We have the Ideas Treehouse on a ledge in our living room as well as the Ship in a Bottle on a bookshelf. Starry Night will be hanging on a living room wall soon as well. She has the flowers in her office even.

    Went to my local Lego store today to take advantage of Double VIP. They had the Van Gogh set built and on display. It looked very (very) nice in person. I’ve been trying to convince myself that I do not need it, ugh…

    The stickers on my 2017 ( and built in 2017) Batwing are starting to peel. No biggie though but it is slightly annoying. Is 5 years before stickers peel normal?

    Don’t mix those up! Snacks don’t have any clutch power. Bricks on the other hand have great nutritional value, I like 2x3s especially.

    Getting nervous about the Forest Hideout. I ordered a Medieval Blacksmith (on backorder) and pre-ordered a Galaxy Explorer on the 18th. The Hideout was added to the order, but a week has gone by without any update on when it might ship.

    It should ship with the first shipment of any purchased (ie paid for) items. It’s why some of us always include something in stock with our orders, even if it’s something small.

    I haven’t found any rhyme or reason when it comes to stickers… I have sets that are 30 years old where the stickers are still intact and more recent sets were they are peeling or cracking. The vast majority of my stickers have stayed intact though so who knows if climate or UV light play a role?

    Today I'm amused by the tag "Yoda's Species" in the database, because after 42 years, we still don't know what species Yoda is.
