    I'm watching my Cuusoo number quite closely. Getting close now, guys. Can I just say a big thank you to everyone who's supported and blogged my model. Fingers crossed it makes the review!

    May be next week then Pete, max 2 weeks. Or maybe a quick shout out on Brickset can push it over the line in the next few days :-)

    ahh, hadnt made the connection between the username and the person :)
    great news, can't wait to see what TLG say about this. Really hope this will get made as it'll be the first Cuusoo to be chosen just because of its amazing build.

    Will be finishing up #10226 Sopwith Camel. I have to say... this has to be one of favorite builds.

    Finished building set 4440 Forest Police Station. It makes a nice addition to my collection.

    Havng discovered recently that 3 of my friends are AFOLs - including my Best Man, who knew? - and that all 3 really liked the Hobbit, I'm enjoying seeing their faces light up when I present them with Mirkwood Elf polybags. 2 down, 1 to go.

    Received a late $30 Lego GC christmas present. Also have a 10% off coupon and some VIP points to spend. Not sure if I want to get the Spiderman Daily Bugle Showdown, or the Battle of Hoth. Decisions, decisions. Any advice?

    ^^ Get neither and put it towards something really amazing :)

    Todays status is 'sick of sorting'. Reckon I've spent about 40 hours so far sorting this latest batch of stuff. In fact I've pretty much resolved that any more loose Lego I get is just going into buckets, all mixed up.
  • WatfordScottyMWatfordScottyM Member Posts: 439
    Today I'm considering 'coming out' as an AFOL. I see 2 possible results:

    1. I find out that some of my other friends are secretly AFOLs too, which will hopefully increase the possibility of trades and communal builds
    2. Divorce :)

    Fingers crossed (not for divorce obviously).

  • monkeyhangermonkeyhanger Member Posts: 2,939
    WatfordScottyM: If Divorce is a possibility, then I must ask where you're hiding your Lego at the moment for the wife not to have seen it (or does she know what you have, but not the associated costs)?
  • WatfordScottyMWatfordScottyM Member Posts: 439
    She knows all about my Lego and that it's hidden in the loft. At the moment though only a few people know her husband 'plays' with Lego. Telling the world is a differnet matter...

    I'm sure she'll be fine really, after all, she bought me #79003 An Unexpected Gathering for Christmas.

  • monkeyhangermonkeyhanger Member Posts: 2,939
    Watfordscotty: It's not so embarassing to be an AFOL, i'm sure there are bigger secrets being kept out there, like my female colleague at work who was recently outed as one of the big stars of a free porn internet website (readers wives style pics and videos). I'm sure there are many out there who would be astounded how sophisticated Lego models are now, especially UCS SW.
  • WatfordScottyMWatfordScottyM Member Posts: 439
    monkeyhanger: So, about this colleague of yours... :)
  • monkeyhangermonkeyhanger Member Posts: 2,939
    Watfordscotty: I think she got over the embarassment of discovery quite quickly. She was telling everyone about her husbands new business venture last week - online toy shop, not the toys we talk about on here. She's a mackem (Sunderland, say no more!).
  • SherlockbonesSherlockbones Member Posts: 411
    I find that offensive :/ XD Sunderland people as well as the team are very nice people

    lol the thing is, I already used the rest of my Christmas GC's and threw down the rest to get Arkham Asylum, so I'm covered with the amazing set part.

    I figured I could use the specials to get one for free to satisfy my craving. Plus the wife would kill me if I spent more so soon after another one lol

    Bit disappointed to hear there's not going to be a Lego Show this year and impatient to know when AFOLcon will be! ( http://www.afolcon.com/AFOLCON/WhatsNew.html )

    I have a bunch of sets to build this weekend, thanks to some great close-out deals at a couple Wal-marts. Vampyre Castle, Ghost Train, X-wing, Endor battle, some weird Ninjago set I got for the figs and cool tank treads (Cobra HISS tank, here I come!!) and lastly, two sets of Heroica I picked up to try out with my niece. I got all that for just over $225.

    After doing some research on some LEGO minifigures (I had some spare time), I came across this:


    My heart hurts.. every time he took a piece apart, a little of my heart went with it. *shudders

    "I don't want to take him too much apart" Too late for that!
  • Penkid11Penkid11 Member Posts: 788
    I could feel my heart rate rising as each part came off. I then looked at the comments and didn't feel as bad, being that it's the chrome one not the how-much-is-it karat gold one that only five were made of.
    That's still about $50 gone in that single minute and a half...
    I think, if it were a gold one, I would have killed the kid for touching the bag!
  • samiam391samiam391 A Log Cabin in KY, United StatesMember Posts: 4,339
    I was waiting for the kid to rip his arms and legs out, to show how the underneath parts weren't chrome.

    Trust me kid, we got it.... we got it. Phew.

    Just finished building 76001 The Bat vs. Bane : Tumbler Chase. Really cool build and the scale seems just right when comparing all the minifigs and vehicles!

    Spent about 9 hours over the weekend removing workbenches, shelves, floor, insulation, spiders, and god knows what else from my future LEGO room.

    I need a new hammer and I also leant something new, night storage heaters weigh more than the earth.

    I have seen anyone do that to a hammer, but then those I've seen are usually one pieces! ;-)

    Storage heaters are as a light as a feather.....when you unscrew the front panel and take the bricks out!! :-P

    Those things have no margin for error and are not cheap.

    Store employees usually have opened brick separators somewhere. They should have at least have two, which is perfect for anything smaller than a 4x4
    plate. The bigger the plate, the more pairs of separators you'll need.

    I only have four at home. I stacked a couple 6x12 plates on top of each other to pack the cups and I paid to price taking them off.

    It's a sorting sort of day after buying some bulk Lego, mixed with some MB and miscellaneous 'stuff'.
  • carlqcarlq Ruislip Manor, MiddlesexMember Posts: 792
    Delighted to say I've managed to obtain all the parts for the Igloo minibuild from the Watford store - they kindly went out back and retrieved some PaB cup full of the specific bricks, which hadn't made their way to the wall yet. Now all I need is the instructions...without wishing to sound like a twit, does anybody have a link to these I can download from, please?
