    It's hard to follow up Si's comment, but I had a good LEGO day.
    Sold my first set on eBay tonight. #4282 for a $26 profit after fees and the like. that more than doubles my purchase price. I'm no Texan, but it'll do! The good day was topped off by the UPS driver dropping off an unexpected Christmas present from my wife. A new #10231. Super Happy day for me!

    Very happy...visiting London from Australia for the week and picked up 7937 - train station and 5891 - apple tree house for a decent discount. And neither of them have been available in aus for a while (that I have seen). Yay!

    Just ordered 79003 Bag End off Amazon.co.uk for £45 (€55) :-) Won't be able to get my hands on it until I pick it up from the folks after Christmas, but considering the German RRP of €80 and the cheapest I've so far managed to find it in Germany (€70), I think I've got a bargain!

    Thanks @LostInTranslation for pointing it out :-)

    Put a desk in our loft for my Lego building. Problem is that it's not walled/insulated so in the winter it's cold and summer it's hot.

    It's also dark and there's no mains up there. Can anyone recommend good lighting that works on batteries?

    I just got delivery notification for the #79003 (Unexpected Gathering) and #10225 (R2D2) sets that I ordered last week. I think I just came down with deliveryitus and my have to go home early.

    "Blaaaaaaaarg. Misplaced a box when I moved in spring. Can't find half my instructions. And I was stupid to just dump all my sets unassembled and loose in a big giant plastic bin."

    Wrapping up Birthday presents for my youngest little boy who will be 2 tomorrow, nearly all of it is Duplo, he's going to love Mack's Truck, creative cakes and the train bridge. Just hope I have enough wrapping paper with all the big boxes. I'm so excited to play with it all as well :)

    Getting antsy about waiting for Christmas LEGO (and Arkham). Helping my kids open and build their advent calendars is keeping me from absolutely losing it.

    Purchased the #10216 Winter Village Bakery today and started building tonight, so far i'm impressed with it (as I am with all #10xxx sets I have built).

    I love the #10xxx sets :)

    This is not a Lego status, but is at least a Danish construction toy status - I was given some Plus Plus, they're quite addictive and seem to keep kids very quiet as well. Naturally they are not as good as Lego :) but would be a good intro to construction for 3-4 year olds.

    The big advantage is that there are no pieces to find... they're all exactly the same!

    Picked up some of the new Galaxy Squad sets, Space Swarmer #70700, Swarm Interceptor #70701 and Vermin Vaporizer #70704. Put together the Swarmer already and currently working on the Interceptor. Very nice builds and quite a few new parts.

    My Cloud City Boba Fett and Market Street showed up today. Happier than a pig in a sty. Early X-mas presents to myself.

    I had fun building my Lego Tree from Attack of the Wargs79002 today.
    I now have two new pet doggies. :) Much better than the Friends puppy. :)

    First family holiday part of the season. In-laws gave me a copy of #21004 (Solomon Guggenheim Museum). I'm not a big fan of the Architecture sets and was thinking "return," until I noticed the box is actually signed in silver on the front by the set designer. Probably staying in the collection now.

    Just finished the Winter Village Bakery, a wonderfull set.

    Layed out all my Lego trains and realised that (a) I used up almost all of my straight track just for the sidings and (b) I need a bigger floor.

    Oh, and they look weird together.

    Started working on my extended Town Hall. I will be getting a 2nd for Christmas and just like I did with the Grand Emporium and the Fire Brigade, I will be combining them; this time 1 huge Town Hall on 2 32x32 baseplates.

    Just opened up a lovely secret santa gift at work the 30009 christmas tree, didn't realize it was worth more in the bag, but my computer likes the decoration.

    Latest PAB shipment sent from Poland this morning. Bricks not available on PAB ordered as replacement parts a couple of days ago... Could the GG modified building be finished this year? :-))

    All IKEA picture frames were 50% off this week so I picked up a couple to display my CMF's.

    And apparently there are dark red (FB, Christmas Mini set 2011) 1x2's on the PAB wall so I might get a small cup of those. :)

    Due to some really crappy life events (and feeling down about having a really sick mother) the past couple of weeks, I did some therapuetic LEGO shopping. Naughty of me to be doing it so close to Christmas ;)

    Just got my Lamborghini Polizia set from the Chowren Toys offer awhile back imported to Cameroon via my sister who came for the Holidays! I am so excited, haven't had anything substantial to build in about 5 months

    Purchased a collection of 1995-98 Lego sets, from a buddy's mom who is clearing out her attic, and I am enjoying the process of building them...

    It is so much fun to build these pre-corporate brand (Disney, SW, etc) sets. So much fun, and so much similarity to the new Galaxy Squad sets, too ;)

    organizing baseplates and dissassembling Kingdom's Joust to make room for Hobbit. Also thinking about where to display my Maersk train...

    Just picked up a small used lego lot. Found a near complete, working but well used, #127 train. Sets were much simpler in 1972.

    Heard this morning "there's no saddle till bag 2? Well that's dumb" and later "that's a very interesting way to do the fire". That's my 8-year-old critically assessing TLG's performance. She's a fun one.

    Just cleaned of the few display shelves I have. Will be making room for next year, but by the looks of it I still won't have enough room. Do I care? Who does!

    Just finished building #4195-1 Queen Anne's Revenge. I had to scour pretty much all places in the city where I live last week in order to find this PotC set. I am so glad I still managed to get it. It looks beautiful next to my Imperial Flagship. It is almost just as big as #10210-1 , and I already had run out of room to put and display all the Lego I have collected.

    My house is in total disarray, it is completely littered with Lego, I am in a state of utter ABS mayhem! I really need to get sorted, I need to start working on some kind of system for storing and sorting all my Lego. Other then that I am feeling pretty good.
  • TheBigLegoskiTheBigLegoski Amsterdam, NederlandMember Posts: 1,416
    I don't get it? Why don't these links of mine in my previous post on this thread open up another tab displaying the set I am referring to?! but instead a search query where the set is mentioned in some other topics on the forum?!

    ^^ The links work fine, you typically just need to refresh the page after posting (it's just a side effect of how the code is implemented). You also don't need the "-1" in the end, but it works either way.

    ^^^ The script that converts the number to a set search on the main site only comes into effect after the page has been refreshed. The links are working now.
  • TheBigLegoskiTheBigLegoski Amsterdam, NederlandMember Posts: 1,416
    ^ Aha, I see!
    I guess I was just impatient, even though I had already refreshed the page.
    Any way, thank you very much for the info.
