Bought it on December 1st at my local LEGO store.
Lesser quality than the regular card, I think.
Now waiting to see what it’s for ;-)
oh, and it came printed with my name. I thought I point that out as I believe I read here that some didn’t have their name on the card.
Stranger: "What's that around you neck?"
Me: "A reminder to no fall for LEGO shenanigans again"
I got it at Hobby Lobby here in the USA: https://www.hobbylobby.com/Crafts-Hobbies/Hobbies-Collecting/Card-Collecting/Screwdowns---1-4/p/21924
My retirement plan of collecting these fine athletics went up in smoke.....meaning, I used their cards as kindling.
They probably want to know so they can profile their user base, collect stats, and generally do the sort of number crunching that makes business development folks feel like the success of the company is down to them.
I'm not one of them. I'm a bit bemused, but comfortable in my non-conformance to my gender's stereotype.
Although that would likely cause the same labeling issue.
Solution: Third Box - "Neutral"
And so we come full-circle...
Yes, please. Sign me up for Alpha Centauri, or whatever world Captain McConaughey wants to colonize with bongo drums and Lincolns...
Or, book me a spot the Axiom. But hold the hoverchair. Well, not all the time.
Let's be fair. People who think they are 'beastkin' generally aren't mentally ill. Or at least, they are not mentally ill because of that. In general, they are practicing a form of extreme escapism. Can the situation that caused them to dive down that particular hole be caused by mental illness? For sure it can. But can we please not demonize the mentally ill, or give credence to these escapist fantasies many of these people have by labeling at mental illness? (Which implies that they are, in fact, suffering from a real thing.)
Strangely enough, I can't think of any case I've heard of where someone who has endured extreme difficulty has "escaped" by making themselves believe they are not human. That their abusers are not human, yes, but not themselves.
Sorry, I couldn’t help myself (and apologies for the meme to the admins!)
If it is a mental illness, it's a rich man's disease. A rather spoiled rich man.
For anyone in Sydney who may be interested, spotted this in David Jones, Miranda tonight. Toy stores and department stores around my neck of the woods are not generally known for stocking hard to find and exclusive sets so I never thought I'd ever spot one of these in the wild. Of course, I'm far too impatient and bought it day one last year via [email protected] for the full AUS RRP of $1300. DJ's don't have any sales on at the moment but some lucky bastard will probably time it right and get a tasty discount on this one... dammit!
