And I will NOT build a train station or introduce trains. I think...
2. Get to Steam this year
* I reserve the right to break my resolution the second an unmissable deal is posted.
And to buy less lego...
Decide once and for all which themes Im collecting and why, e.g. am I really collecting superheroes and how exactly do I expect to display them. if not, purge.
finish all those half finished mocs.
Continue my 'absolutely not at RRP' approach (went well this year).. i.e. patience patience
Never again buy a ninjago/atlantis/ etc etc (i.e. eight year old boy) theme as they just dont compare to the exclusives.
Get to more afol events. Put more faces to names.
Set up a proper full time display.
Never again buy to resell, its not worth it overall.
Dont build on sunny days.
one more and these can be my ten commandments to myself .. ok how about.. i shalt not covet my neighbours MoC (and shall be entirely satisfied that buildong them is fun and it doesnt have to be tbe best one in the world).
And work on my first Modular MOC and working on my winter village. (There just isn't any time around the holidays)
1. Be less grumpy. Although that doesn't really apply on here :-D
2. Get involved more in the lego community such as lego shows, brickish related stuff.
3. Plan out what I want to buy and when. I know when stuff will be released so do I need it the day it has come out.
4. Finally attend one of the get togethers here
1. This year I'm going to slow down on buying
2. Wait for the specials, stop buying at full price
3. Stop searching ebay for sets I don't have
I was saying to myself I've nearly got through the first day of the NY without buying any lego and I was starting to feel rather pleased with myself and then I go and put an offer on a lego Town Plan on ebay didn't think they would accept my offer and before I knew it they accepted so at 11pm sent my payment....I didn't even make it through the first day after all.
I'm hoping to hear if I've won a Cafe Corner 6pm tonight, I promise if I win this I'm going to stop....
Repeat 1,2,3 cause clearly this isn't working very well
Got my wifes cousin a cool lego boat and trailer and we spent a happy hour building them, well I did, he said "lego is stupid, why don't they come already built."
I tried to explain we were having fun building it and then we'd smash it and build it again but he wasn't convinced.
My son will learn to love building Lego
My second LEGO resolution is to make at least one castle-themed MOC.
My third LEGO resolution is to give my son a couple of his own sets for his third birthday. For that, I've been holding back a 5761 to go along with a 31005 when it becomes available. My son is 27 months. Building towers and knocking them down is still his favorite thing to do with Duplo. He does occasionally sit on my lap and "help" build my sets. Mostly, he rearranges my sorted parts but occasionally adds a piece or two in the correct place, as directed. He loves playing with minifigures and really enjoys the play features of some sets (Whitecap Bay collapsing tower, Weathertop trap door, Moria falling pillars, etc.).
Stop spending money on "seconds" and just concentrate on having one of each.
I'll promise myself that the only one I'll do is a small(ish) Tatooine scene for displaying on my bookshelf. Using #9516, #75005 and some large plates that is.
But I'd probably say I backed into "winning" this due to the fact I did almost no sorting (and I have bins and bins and bins of unsorted LEGO to prove it)
