Parts I'd forgotten I had!
Last night, I decided to build #8781
The Castle of Morcia. It's been disassembled since a few months after I bought it in 2004. It and #8777
Vladek Encounter, #8799
Knight's Castle Wall, #8800
Vladek's Siege Engine, and #8877
Vladek's Dark Fortress have all been stored in 8877's box, in an number of Ziploc bags. I rebuilt 8877 a couple of years ago, but the others have been waiting. So when I dumped out the three bags that held, all mixed up, 8777, 8781, and8799, I saw a bunch of sand blue 1x2 and 2x4 bricks! I must have got them from the PAB wall, and I guessed I had substituted them into the castle to make it more blue. When I finished the castle, I found I had: 1x2 and 2x4 bricks in sand blue, 2x2 bricks and 2x3 plates in dark ("original") green, and 1x2 and 2x10 bricks in grey- as in, "old light grey"! I dumped them into a large PAB cup... and they didn't quite fill it. I wonder what else I must have put in the cup back then. Oh well: bonus LEGO! :)
