    @legomatt‌ -

    staff: It's just pining for the Federation.
    man: Pining for the Federation? What kind of talk is that? It's been sold on, this LEGO set is no more, bereft of life, it rests in pieces!

    Love that one :o)

    Thanks to the AFOL at mall of America lego store today that found me a milhouse minifigure. It was the last one I wanted!

    Just typed 'shop' into google, expecting the LEGO [email protected] website to appear. :oD

    A moment's confusion at the search results before realising what i'd just done.

    Piecing together an order on Bricklink to build #10143. I think buying everything will be harder than the build itself.

    Took 10 days to arrive and miraculously slipped through customs charging but my SDCC 60's Batmobile has arrived and is sitting on the coffee table at home. Unfortunately I am not there but it will be cracked open on Saturday.

    That's is a pretty great scent..... Smelling play-doh and Mr. Bubbles always reminds me of being a kid. Well of being a smaller kid.

    @Pitfall69 - So that makes you a LEGO obsessed, play-doh sniffing, brony?

    @Bumblepants Fancy chancing your luck and asking the brand store if they have any unwanted Lego Movie Palace Cinema movie stickers left over from last years promotion, please pretty please?

    Sorry, I know I've got a right cheek but honestly think it's worth an ask.

    Just finished "weatherproofing" (well protecting from dust) my Haunted House by placing windows in all the frames. It isn't that noticeable and it may reduce the brushing off the dust from the interior.
  • LegopantsLegopants GermanyMember Posts: 1,985
    Just finished dusting off and disassembling #7019 "Viking Fortress against the Fafnir Dragon" ready for bagging and boxing tomorrow.
    Nice set but I need the space for something new - maybe Tower of Orthanc :-))

    A couple of Indiana Jones sets are also earmarked for disassembly - will deffo keep #7623 "Temple Escape" out on show though owing to its incredibly high coolness factor ;-)

    That Viking Fortress is pretty cool. The nice thing about Orthanc is that it takes up very little shelf space, but of course is very tall. IMO, It's much easier to display than something like Helm's Deep or the above Viking Fortress.

    I think there is a misconception that I love My Little Pony and collect them. I just like the smell of some of them :) My daughter has so many that I can't go anywhere without stepping on them or sleeping with them. Much like my Lego collection :)
  • CapnRex101CapnRex101 United KingdomAdministrator Posts: 2,272
    @Pitfall69‌ - I think the idea of you sniffing them is probably worse :o)

    ^^ Okay, it's cool. You really don't need to justify yourself to us. What you do in your place is your business.

    Know what you mean - I use IKEA's 30cm IVAR shelving which is fine for most of the sets I have. Had the Fortress on a corner section which was large enough to accommodate its footprint. Helm's Deep is currently perched high up on a 30cm section and hangs over by a few cm - especially when you fold out the steps. Need to rearrange my Hobbit/LotR collection so HD is on a corner shelf.

    Picked up my Orthanc at the AFOL day in Sheffield back in April - couldn't bring it back though coz I flew over. Looking forward to picking it up from the folks in the UK when I drive over in a couple of few weeks' time :-)

    Didn't have any stickers. In fact, they were out of almost everything new as well except Chima fire and ice

    'I don't love them... i just sleep with them' :oD Well, that certainly puts out that fire. ;o)

    I bet you're counting down the days for when she's 18 and has a similar number of sexy college friends, 'i can't go anywhere without...' ;oD

    ^ @Pitfall69 Yes, there is that to consider... I wouldn't want to wake up and find i'd slept with the football team but stepped on the cheerleader. Hah! :oP

    I have placed all of my LEGO in my shed in anticipation of preparing the former guest room into a nursery!

    Expecting my first child this February!

    Of course I still have a set or two available to build...
