    Just cracked open my Pixmania supplied Jabba's sailbarge - contemplating how I can get a nice nose on it with some mods involving hinged wing plates and maybe upsize it for a few more shutters with the little 2 x 1 plate grilles rather than the crappy stickers.

    I caught a severe case of the sorting virus just now!

    And I have no idea when the end of it is ever going to be in sight....

    Must...

    order.... out... of... CHAOS.
    The horror!

    Stopped at McDonald's to grab a quick snack for my 15 year old son, and saw they have The Lego Movie collectable cups with Happy Meals. Well guess who got stuck eating the kiddie meal? ;)

    @LegoMom1 Gee, I wonder who got 'stuck' with the cup? ;o)

    ^ @rancorbait- Who? Take a guess! And it's a really cool cup too. It's that 3D effect type material. I'm not sure how many there are in the series, but the first one, Emmet, is really cool.

    Went out on a little mission earlier in this awful weather, didn't succeed in doing what I wanted so got #60061 airport fire truck instead.
    Also my sealed #10219 Maersk train arrived, haven't even opened it yet, been playing with other toys.

    ^^ @Big_Blue_Winky- By 'playing with other toys,' I suspect you mean the Maserati (?).

    Boy, do you have the life! ;)

    Went to see The Lego Movie this morning with my 10 year old. Absolutely brilliant, we both loved it. Picked up the Odeon polybags, and then a few TLM minifigs at TRU, which I was sure I wasn't going to bother with except for Panda Guy and Lincoln. Now I'm doomed to get the whole set. Again.
  • Big_Blue_WinkyBig_Blue_Winky Member Posts: 181
    @LegoMom1 I suspect you're right, that and some Xbox gaming too, I do love the Italian, makes a great winter toy and great way to purchase Lego even if I do get asked some odd questions.

    I'm proud of what I've achieved and leaving it at that.

    Getting ready for our house move on Friday. It's odd that over half our boxes seem to contain Lego. I'm sure we had more non Lego items :o)
    I'll try and upload a pic later.

    I came back from Middlesex University interview, the guy said we had a graduate who studied their and now is at Lego designing sets: He said he worked on Lego Ninjago (picture shown was the 2014 Ninjago sets.)

    In the early stages of building the Death Star - been waiting for ages to build this, had to find space to display it first!
  • programmerdanprogrammerdan Member Posts: 27
    So ... it took a bit of a tussle, but I got a bulk lot of LEGO (12.5 lbs) from an eBay seller. They tried to back out of the sale (I got it for about $5.50 a lb, shipped) but I persisted and the items ultimately arrived as described.

    Well. I finally sorted through them two nights ago, and boy was I in for a surprise.
    First, it contains the following nearly or totally complete kits (no minifigs):
    #10174 Imperial AT-ST (UCS) -- worth more than I paid for the whole lot, if complete
    #6206 Tie Interceptor
    #6212 X-wing Fighter
    #7661 Jedi Starfighter with Hyperdrive Booster Ring

    Second, it contains the following to more than 50% completion:
    #8018 Armored Assault Tank
    #6208 B-wing Fighter
    #7658 Y-wing Fighter

    Finally, it contains portions of the following, maybe 50% but generally less:
    #7660 Naboo N-1 Starfighter and Vulture Droid
    #7646 ETX Alien Infiltrator
    #7647 MX-41 Switch Fighter
    #7697 MT-51 Claw Tank Ambush

    The space kits are a little speculative, but based on a few key pieces and an analysis of parts distribution I'm fairly confident those are present in some measure.

    Anyway, that made clear why this person tried to back out -- this was a goldmine! It should have gone for between $10-$15 a pound, easily, or if they'd been willing to construct a few of the sets inside they could have made even more on resale.

    For me -- they will fill in some gaps in my Star Wars starfighter collection quite nicely, going to look forward to building some or all of these kits once I get the pieces cleaned.
  • programmerdanprogrammerdan Member Posts: 27
    Update --

    I'm still sorting through some of the pieces, and based on unique pieces I also see that somewhere in here are at 50% or less the following:
    #7673 MagnaGuard Starfighter
    #7074 Skull Island

    Crazy ....
  • programmerdanprogrammerdan Member Posts: 27
    At risk of hogging this thread because I can't edit my comment, but I was wrong about #7074 . Based on some other pieces I found, looks like some portion of #3827 Adventures in Bikini Bottom. Fun stuff!

    Saw soooooo much (sealed) Lego today - new sets, old sets, all in perfect condition... that I couldn't interact with in any way shape or form :( Was at an Amazon warehouse/distribution centre. Don't know if I could work there, I'd want to run around looking at everything all the time!

    @Legoboy: *Tells wife that he bought the Sea cow*

    Later...

    @Legoboy to brickset friends: "I barely escaped with me head!.... And me organs!"

    Ha. @legoboy is not stupid enough to tell his wife.

    Has quietly told the kids they'll build Simpsons House this weekend if the weather is rubbish again. No idea where it came from.

    Still building my Duploville subdivision. Have to do the interiors of a dozen playhouses this week and order furniture to complete interiors. BL has saved my life on this project because Duplo playhouse parts seem to be so rare in the US. Brickscapes of Canada made it possible by listing 32 large walls in pristine white parted from police stations. And used Duplo furniture on eBay has been a big help as well.

    Having to get creative on several of the roofs because I refuse to use the red ones from police stations and farm sets. Red is not my color. The other colors are monstrously expensive with shipping from Europe. Trying to build a Dutch/Danish type roof facade of Duplo ain't easy.

    My few good girlfriends have long been convinced that I am nutters, but at least some of them are enjoying the LEGO Movie. (I laugh silently when they say how much they liked it!) And try not to make too much fun of their silly hobbies.

    In spite of what I've read here on the forums, I'm not ashamed to admit I couldn't wait to order the Sea Cow! Ordered my set early this morning, even before the emails went out. I did promise hubby he could build it as he let me use his $50 gift card.

    Yes, you must take your time, at that price it's important to milk it a bit. ;o)

    It's the same price as the Ewok Village but has 751 more pieces. Yeah it's expensive but not compared to anything else in Lego's lineup.

    I get it. You're making a joke to cover up the fact that you don't understand the relevance (and expense) of the Sea Cow. Which is kind of a joke in and of itself.

    @mathew Do you have to really work hard to come across like a major ass in half the comments you post on these forums, or does it just come naturally to you? Man, it sure does get old for the rest of us...

    In a separate thread you seriously questioned why Lego released the Sea Cow. A valid argument. So I am merely taking your argument seriously.

    Hmm, I think i'm going to take a few days off. Don't fancy being trolled, or I might say something rude. :oS

    As @legomatt said, it was a joke! Not an an argument, and nothing to take seriously!

    If he made a statement regarding the Sea Cow in a different thread, I think it would be quite appropriate to keep your argument in that thread!

    I certainly understand what your going through @margot . I'm moving to a bigger place the first week of March so I can have a dedicated room just for my LEGO.

    Just received the Seacow and GE, they also chucked in a little holo Lego movie sticker?

    Don't know which to open first.....

    A day with my children covering our front room carpet with their version of a LEGO city and then just got back from all of us watching the LEGO movie for the second time. We even persuaded my wife to join us and she actually liked it!

    Very pleased that my power functions bits arrived today all my trains will be running later I'm hoping. Such a nice touch that Lego store Cardiff sent them all in a Lego bag and sent me two Emmett Piece of Resistance Poly Bags.

    Now to go off and break some expensive trains.

    It appears the Brickset favicon has taken over Google - at least on my browser.

    Saw Spring 2014 Lego Sets with my own eyes in TRU, WM and Target. Much more satisfying than drooling over NY Toy fair pics. Now time to plot ... which to get first ....
