    Looking at buying some REAL bricks to build a wall and I was amazed to find they're 23p each, so that's cheaper than some Lego bricks then. wow.

    Hubby took a suitcase down from a shelf in the storage room where my layout table is, knocked the #4435 car & camper van to the floor, also a couple of zombie 4-wheelers. Growled "all this stuff is in the way", and then went upstairs to play with his remote control helicopter.

    Very happy!

    My birthday today, and not only did my wife buy me the #9396 Technic Helicopter that I'd asked for, she then surprised me with a #10220 VW Camper Van.

    Add to that some friends of ours bought me the Technic Builders Guide, and I'm very happy indeed!

    @BooTheMightyHamster- A very happy birthday to you! Enjoy that VW Camper Van, it's quite the charmer.

    @BooTheMightyHamster HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
    @kevbags LUCKY You!!! I would love to find that set for my airport!! LOL Have fun!

    Myself, I am having to rebuild 7 sets from ECCC. I dropped my totes and Darth Maul, Sandcrawler, Sail Barge, IS, Yoda, AT-ST and R2D2 decided they didn't wanna stay in totes, so............I have rebuilt IS, AT-ST and bottom half of Darth Maul. Still have quite a few to go. At least my autograph plate from Darth Maul decided to behave :)

    Moved sets off of one counter to make room for finishing the SSD, only to discover the medium sized sets I had COULD have fit underneath.

    Came into the office this morning to find a pressie on my desk from a work colleague. God knows what the judge is going to think in court this afternoon.

    ^ Don't worry - I wear the TARDIS cufflinks to my court frequently, and I always get complimentary comments from the Judicial panel! Still, bearing in mind the ties I wear to work very day, perhaps they're the lesser of two evils...;-)

    I was tempted to agree with you only having commented on them, Judge later found in our favour whilst awarding both costs and interest. Have found my new luck charm to wear during judgements - even judges like LEGO. :-)

    Picked up the Rancor Pit at my local Lego store. 10% off catalog coupon? Yes. 50 VIP bonus points for buying the set? Yes. Free Republic Frigate polybag? Yes. And of course they had the new Iron Man 3 sets, so I picked up the one with War Machine, so a very good day it was.

    What's up with the extra 50 VIP points for this set? Is this good all month? Double VIP points start on Monday.
  • JP3804JP3804 Member Posts: 332
    ^Check th VIP promo. There are 3 sets that get the 50 extra points. I don't recall the other 2 and I beleive it was all month.
  • BrikingBriking Dorset, UKMember Posts: 751
    @Steve_J_OM you're doomed. Now you will want them all. Enjoy the build :-)

    Our daughter and a high school friend are visiting Paris and they went to the Lego store and bought souvenirs for us! Can't wait to see what!
  • GoldchainsGoldchains Member Posts: 795
    I think that the bonus 50 points on that set is good until the 31st(or was it the 5th? either way...). I had the money to buy, and the wife was willing to let me get the sets, so I took the opportunity before she spent it all lol.

    Right now I am regretting not buying a better camera when I had the chance a month or two ago. Photographing a MOC I have been working on is proving very tricky!

    Starting to think about building the medical library at the place I used to work at in time for April's National Library Week (a request from the librarian after the Lego display I showed there last year was a hit!). I have the photos - just need to get started; the case of tan 1x4 I picked up in the Lego store last week should help!

    At the top of a very slippery slope.

    Now, I'm not fanatical about Star Wars, nor have I paid it much attention in the past decade. But I grew up with the movies as a kid, had many of the original Kenner toys, read the novels in the early/mid-90s, and absolutely loved the PC games X-Wing and TIE Fighter. So of course I had looked at LEGO's Star Wars offerings. They seemed too expensive, weren't particularly faithful to the source material, were too focused on minifigs, etc.

    But regaining interest in something can have a profound effect on your perception of value. Recently, my 2.5-year-old son and I stumbled across the old Droids cartoon on YouTube, and he enjoyed it. That led to me digging out my old books, such as Tales of the Bounty Hunters, Tales from Jabba's Palace, etc. Not too long after that I noticed 9490 Droid Escape at slight discount while making an after-work grocery run. I thought my son might like it, so I picked it up. And yes, he had fun swooshing the escape pod, but I wasn't particularly impressed. However, it did get me to take a second look at the Star Wars sets. Now, that X-Wing doesn't look too bad, the Y-Wing is actually pretty nice, and Artoo and Threepio would go so well with the rest of the main characters included with the Millennium Falcon! Surely, it wouldn't be too difficult to collect only the iconic sets from A New Hope (my favorite in the series).

    And then Amazon dropped the price of 9496 Desert Skiff to $16 and change. I built it last night, and while I wasn't impressed by the build, the playability is pretty good. And, oh, the minifigs. Now I'm kicking myself for not jumping on that $83 Jabba's Palace in my Amazon gold box deals the other day, I still want the iconic ships from A New Hope, and I need the sail barge and a second skiff to go along with the skiff I already have. But I'm drawing the line at the Rancor Pit. Unless it hits 35% off.

    ^ I know the feeling, I own a single Star Wars set, Jabbas Palace (after ditching my imperial shuttle the last time I stood on top of this particular slope!) slippery slope indeed.

    (I have a 2.5 year old as well and not sure I'd show him droids, bit violent isnt it)

    ^^At the bottom of the slope is a UCS Falcon and Gold Chrome C3PO waiting for you @binaryeye. Slippery indeed...

    yay i got my free lego from the sun newspaper.
  • binaryeyebinaryeye USMember Posts: 1,734

    (I have a 2.5 year old as well and not sure I'd show him droids, bit violent isnt it)

    Well, I don't know about the series as a whole. We've watched only the first several episodes and I don't consider it particularly violent. "Battle" scenes usually end up with C-3PO or R2-D2 knocking over the bad guys, or the good guys escaping via deus ex machina (e.g. "We're trapped! Wait a minute, I once repaired a speeder for this old man and for my trouble he gave me a lightsaber, which I happen to have stashed in this vehicle! Better yet, I know how to use it! Whew, it cuts through blast doors in a split-second!). I think Boba Fett, in the one episode he is in, has a gun but never uses it. Stormtroopers have some sort of staff that fires blaster bolts that never hit anything. In general, there's a lot of slapstick and C-3PO falling into things, which is what my son enjoys.

    ^^At the bottom of the slope is a UCS Falcon and Gold Chrome C3PO waiting for you @binaryeye. Slippery indeed...

    I'm on a pretty tight budget, so those things are definitely not for me. The UCS Falcon looks like a fun build and does look impressive, but I don't have room to display such things. And there's no way I'd ever spend $250+ on a 2" tall piece of plastic, chromed or not.

    Yes, looking about on Google, I read that you receive 3 lego figures

    Picked up olive green 2x4s from Indianapolis LEGO Store PaB wall tonight. Used my last holiday box. They also had pink 1x4s.

    A good LEGO week. Bought my first 2 Bricklink orders. Received all of the parts in perfect condition. Built 18 tiny choo choo trains out of them for my son's birthday tomorrow (oops, now today). I even broke the cardinal rule: don't glue LEGO.
    Oh, and I sent the USA Today article about the UCS Millenium Falcon's value to my father and father-in-law. Both currently think LEGO is a bit weird for a 39 year old. Hopefully this will help them to see the light. Maybe they will buy me an MF for Christmas!
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ NZMember Posts: 4,179
    Finally found a use for the 4juniors minifig that's been hanging around for years ... my 2 year old loves minifigs and since it's glued, he can keep this one in his collection.
  • timinchicagotiminchicago USAMember Posts: 239
    The last of my PaB orders showed up last night and now I am just trying to get through work and go home to start on #10181. Talk about a LOT of grey bricks to sort!
