    I’m sure this happen more than I think, but felt lucky when I opened #40569 and got, not one, but 2 sticker sheets!

    Although I have close to 400 sets, I only got double stickers (they were 4 identical sticker sheets actually)  in a city medium police set back in 2012-2014 period.  So congrats on your backup stickers

    They just refreshed the VIP points program to combine store/online redemption into one process, and they mentioned in the blurb that if you had redeemed points for a discount but didn't use it before the change, they would return the points to your account.

    With all the talk of buying multiple #10497 Galaxy Explorers to build the smaller alternate models... who's gonna combine two and build an eight-person, eight-engine behemoth? Inter-Galactic Explorer, perhaps?

    How can you be broke with a time machine? I thought making money knowing the future is easy peasy.

    Well, I tried that minfig customizer thing. Should be interesting to see how it turns out. Also blessed that there didn't seem to be text moderation, so I made a racing suit with John 3:16 on it.(My grampa loved cars, and John 3:16 was a favorite verse.) Pictures when it get's here.(Lord willing that there's no issues, that is...)

    Fixed the Camaro again,still have two black 1x2s left over, can't see where they go. I've thought of a minifig I'd love to see. Racecar Guy wears a car,Ferry Captain wears a model of his ship, what if there was a Train Guy, wearing a steam locomotive, with a lantern accessory?

    Yesterday I celebrated my birthday. I was blessed to be able to have family around me, even after moving multiple states over. And, although I didn't get to unwrap any LEGO, I did receive some funds toward future LEGO purchases. (Winter Village expansion, anyone?)

    I ended up getting some tools that have been on my wanted list for quite some time. I should have everything necessary now to start building some modest furniture. My wife has a list already of what she'd like me to build. I'll just need to make sure I include some new LEGO shelving on the list before it gets too long!
    Happy belated birthday!

    ^ Those are obscenely expensive. I don’t use PAB/B&P, do they always overcharge that much?
  • pxchrispxchris Oregon, USAMember Posts: 2,016
    @WesterBricks those prices shown are the net total - divide to get the individual. So for example, the torso is $0.96 each.

    That makes a whole lot more sense.  Like I said, never used it so I'm not familiar with their UI.

    I've started to put together some carts on Bricklink for a few builds I have coming together for my winter village. I had an etiquette question for any BL sellers on my orders. 

    Currently, my order is around $10 worth of parts for each store. Not a ton, but likely to grow at least a bit as I piece together a few more needs. However, in both shops I'm looking at I decided to sort their store by price. Both stores have a significant amount of parts listed for between $.01 and $.03 each. If you were/are a seller, how would you feel if someone added a bunch of lots to their order of your cheapest parts?  Would I be terrible to add another $5 worth of penny parts?

    Figure I'd do a very informal poll to see what the feelings would be.

    I'm no seller, but I try to make my order higher than shipping because I don't want to waste a seller's time, gas, or money, for a $1 or less part.

    You know, its funny that you mention that.
    I've actually looked at those sets and considered going back and collecting all of them... they're really fun looking sets! But... alas I probably won't, I need to focus my collecting budget elsewhere for a while.

    I got my Walmart 90th set, yesterday. I really want to get a nice scan, so Huw can have it for the database here. I also built the tree part of #10281, with the idea of using it as Rafiki's tree. Seems like it'll be a better minifig scale tree, than a bonsai. At least it seems so.

    For @lowlead and @Switchfoot55, here's my Minifig Factory minifig based on my Grampa Bill! He loved Jesus and liked racing! Now I just have to get out one of my Speed Champions Chevys for him to drive He was a Chevy fan.

    Thank you! His actual truck that he drove is in my list. He was never a race car driver, it just seemed appropriate, because he loved to go fast.. He never owned a dealership either, yet I want to build one, named after him, to display my Speed Champions at.

    I spent almost an hour today looking for GWP set #40533 (Cosmic Cardboard Adventures). I knew I had this set because it was included with my Pyramid of Giza set that I received in June.
    I've gone through all the usual places: tables, piles of sets under tables, my Bricklink shop and storage room but without result. Then I started to worry that I might have left the set in the large cardboard box where Pyramid of Giza came in and thrown it away in the paper container with the packaging.
    At this point I began to fear that I had gone mad. I know my memory is failing me more and more at 60, but it can't be that bad, can it?
    Finally I found the set in a display cabinet in the living room. Where I had searched before.
    Please let me know I'm not the only one experiencing this sort of thing.

    Picture of the culprit:

    All I have to decide now is whether to build this cute set or save it for later to sell...

    That's a fun find! I always hope I'll run across one in a vintage bulk lot. My most recent bulk purchase had me thinking I found a marbled brick as well. Then I picked it up and realized it was a dumb MegaBlok. Usually the gray MBs are a little marbled. This one tricked me as it was blue. 

    I'll keep hunting!

    ^ I thought this was an off brand since no Lego bricks are this shade of gray, but it’s totally legit. Darker and less bluish than DBG, and slightly translucent under bright light, so I think it was the black dye running out.

    I too agree the vibrant yellow is questionable at best. But hey, free LEGO is free LEGO!

    Well, I stepped away from my phone for 10 minutes. Came back and saw a Brickhound text that #40547 Obi Wan and Vader Brickheadz were back in stock....only to go back out of stock 9 minutes later! I guess it gives me hope that it's likely to come back. However, I'll apparently need to be ready in an instant to make the purchase.

    My LEGO status today: Lloking at Queer Eye that arribed yesterday and just left a toy store with my select wanted CMF. So my fingers are all numb, trying to type this in case this information could be usefull to anyone (ive not kept up to date with the CMF-diskussion, so perhaps this is old news): the series came in plastic bags. Also looking at [email protected], the CMF is shown with plastic packaging there too.

    Hope this info makes some people happy (and their fingers not too scared of what is to come…)

    Happy its Friday and that I managed to picked up a box of Series 23 CMFs. Nearly 3 complete sets. Ended up getting an extra girl with the candy cane at the expense of a reindeer.
