    Spent the day in the garden and have Lego on the mind!!!

    Now have a 'green' wheelie bin to put garden waste in for collection on a fortnightly basis. We were given a great big sticker to apply to the side of the bin, to demonstrate that we have paid for the additional service. Peeled the backing off the sticker and applied it to the side of the bin. "Damn it!" Got a bloody air bubble trapped and made a right mess of it trying to get it out. Think I'm now going to have to get onto the local authority asking if they can send out a replacement so I can ensure I have a perfectly mounted one.

    Wonder if it's licensed!? Need to get a life!!!

    Went to TRU today and found out I was too late for the CMF deal (and they had Series 8 :o( ) New deal say you can get a free Thor of Frodo Poly or a Series 6 or 7 CMF with a $20 purchase (excludes Friends). They only had S7 CMF so I got me a free Frodo Poly! Just small question: How much is it worth for Re-sell?
  • JosephJoseph Member Posts: 651
    ^ About as much as TRU is selling them for: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogPG.asp?S=30210-1

    ^ Thanks! But it all has to be confined in a 10x10 stud space. :( I'm thinking of doing a hot dog stand.

    placed a large order for some windows for my UCS Hogwarts Hall. I had ten of the windows in my own collection, but realised tonight I needed 120. eek.

    Finished my Tumbler I sourced on BL. Kind of glad I went this route instead of chasing down the original set. It looks cool, but it's not really anything amazing.

    Purchasing Lego-crack, are we?:P
    Quick question: Did you just scoop them into the cup, or did you build according to the cup's shape and fill the holes with studs or flowers? The latter takes longer but you get not brick for your buck that way (-$0.01 is possible!!)
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,834
    @Brickdancer, brilliant!! Step two, modify it to enable him to transform. ;-)
  • dimefielddimefield Edmonton Alberta CanadaMember Posts: 314
    @Penkid I could see how they could become quite addictive and i'm glad the nearest store is 200 miles away. I just scooped.. they had tan 2x2 tiles and trans clear 1x2 plates. Also grabbed some 1x2 bricks. Ive seen the posts on the stacking for 2 hours to get the most efficient cup. I don't have that kind of patience!

    Happy as I found #9590 NRG Zane and #9574 Lloyd ZX spinners in the Wroclaw (Poland) LEGO shop. My two boys will be chuffed I managed to get something pre-uk release for them. And at 40 PLN each it's about the price you pay in the UK for them
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,834
    I must be the slowest builder ever. Three evenings later and I'm not even half way through my Unimog. I am spending a good 20 minutes per sticker though. Must be just right. :-)

    Got my first LOTR set, Attack on Weathertop. Woo hoo!

    I got my Lloyd ZX from Amazon today, now I won't have to worry about getting him for the collection.
  • khmellymelkhmellymel United KingdomMember Posts: 1,297
    I think I've figured out that I need a daily fix of Lego :S Already going into Lego withdrawal now that I've packed it all away!

    Visited four different Lego Brand Stores in 4 days. So many PAB cups and Grab bags to sort. Love summer road trips.

    ^ Sounds like a lot of fun!
  • WatfordScottyMWatfordScottyM Member Posts: 458
    I'm desperately in need of a fix. I finished building my VW T1 and now I'm left with no new sets to build. Damn you new bathroom soaking up all my money!

    My status: Bought the super star destroyer. The most expensive set i've ever bought. So... i'm broke and i'll probaby never be able to do that again in this lifetime.
  • sadowsk1sadowsk1 Member Posts: 124
    ^lol, still, an awesomely epic set, good work!
  • unkthebarbarianunkthebarbarian Member Posts: 27
    Thanks. It's not great if you can't display it properly. Mine isn't i don't think. It's not the size of this beast, but the details that are in/ on it that make it so awesome. So i just gotta get some display ideas. Also, this is one that needs to be kept out of the reach of children. Lol!

    Just recieved The Werewolf (9463-1) in the mail.
    Got it for free through some questionaires on the internet.
    This makes it my first set in the Monster Fighters series, I want more :-D

    Two excited 8-year-olds in the house who have, since 6 am, played Heartlake City, watched The Padawan Menace and are currently exploring YouTube for LEGO movies and it's still not time to leave for the Friends LEGO Club meeting.
  • caperberrycaperberry LondonMember Posts: 2,226
    Two firsts for me today; parting out a set without building it first (Marina) and my first Friends set (Olivia's Speedboat). Greatly amused at the lack of steering controls in the speedboat - that Olivia is one wild gal.
  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,270
    Finally got around to building QAR. Great looking ship with some cool detail items. Did some more work on my custom ship build in LDD. Finalized the rear of the hull and started working on redoing the front. It's currently ~100 studs long (almost 2x the QAR hull length) and its 24 studs wide (1.5x the other ship hulls). Brick/plate built hull. It's about 1600 pieces right now just to replicate the molded hull pieces of the LEGO ships.

    Built the UCS Yoda bust #7184 in one sitting last night. First time doing a sculpture like that and was initially surprised by the top-down view approach to building in layers. But was interesting experience once gotten used to it and was a fast build. Overall, the build was basic and the finished piece is mediocre to look at. I give it a 3 out of 5 stars.

    @BrickDancer i need to rebuild our #7184 as we picked it up at a garage sale and we aren't sure it is 100% complete. It was put together and looked complete, but at the price we paid it wouldn't have mattered.

    Lego status today: happy that I added another 4 Juniors minifig to my collection. 15 to go before the collection is complete!
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    ^Oops, I meant #7194 for Yoda. You're fortunate for having garage sale finds like that. I have a hard time finding garage sales period. But other than being a UCS and necessary for completing the collection, its not quite worth the going price.

    Now #7676 Republic Gunship on the other hand, that was worth every penny! Really liked that build and it has the highest playability of all sets I own. Can't stop staring at it with all the troopers and Jedi hanging out the bay door.

    The garage sale was last yr and I mentioned it in the brag thread quite some time ago, but hubby stopped at a garage sale about half a mile from us and asked if they had any Lego for sale. The teenage boy said, yes I've got some I'll sell and he brought out #3450 (about 98% complete), #7194 Yoda, #3826 Build-A-Bob and a partial unknown Tie Fighter, and said he couldn't take less than $40. Hubby could not get the money ou of his wallet fast enough!
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    Oh yes, I do remember that post of yours. It was the SoL that was shocking. That was a 'once in a lifetime' type of find.
  • AFFOL_Shellz_BellzAFFOL_Shellz_Bellz Member Posts: 1,263
    That it was. I've since learned it's often cheaper to buy instructions than to pay to have them printed.

    Spent 30 min at Walmart feeling through a full box of S8 minifigs. Got a full set! They were $3.28 each.

    Decided it was about time I added the sets me and my son own to brickset - then you start to realise you may have too much (?!!) Lego

    Finished cleaning up the LEGO room and made space for a display shelf. Purchased one of these over the weekend: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20213312/

    Now onto assembly and then back to building!
  • caperberrycaperberry LondonMember Posts: 2,226
    Friend came over wanting to play some Lego. I gave him the pick of my unopened sets and let him build Jabba's Palace. It may sound magnanimous of me but really my plan is to turn him into an AFOL. mwahahaha
  • unkthebarbarianunkthebarbarian Member Posts: 27
    My new status is "overwhelmed"!!!! My puny collection is nothing compared to all of yours.
