What's your LEGO 'status' today?

    Still waiting for my PAB order for my un-haunting project. And for the replacement bricks for my T1. I hate waiting :-(
  • dejavudejavu Member Posts: 235
    Finished sorting my bricks. I have mostly sets, mini-sets such as the Spring Scene, and minifigs. Don't have a lot of miscellaneous bricks yet, so they don't take up too much room so far, but I'm planning a trip to the LEGO store soon and will hit the PAB wall - just trying to decide what kinds of bricks to go for. Last time I managed a bunch of white fence pieces, computer screens (but not keyboards), a lot of tiles in different sizes and colors, and a variety of plates. This time, hoping to score bricks in 1x6, 1x8, 1x10, etc, plus looking at whatever bricks I don't currently have among my sets. I mostly like to do variations and enhancements on Creator and Modular sets.

    Just built the #3826 I bought on e-bay. Spongebob looks fabulous, though his sticker smile has seen better days ...

    Got a postcard in the mail, so i'm impatiently awaiting the grand opening of the lego store in stl.
    It's may 10, 11, & 12. They are going to build an 8 ft model of the hulk. Kinda excited.
    Of course i'm going with lots of cash! Lol.

    ^ Same here, I'm can't wait for the St. Louis LEGO store to open!

    LEGO status today - trying to convince the wife that I really need more LEGO!
  • BuriedinBricksBuriedinBricks Member Posts: 1,367
    Ordered even more parts for a large scale show project that's rapidly approaching the 4k brick mark. I'm having fun with it, but I'm going to need to seriously redo my sorting setup when it comes time to break this one down.

    Also waiting for a Brickshelf folder to go public so I can see what I need to do to finish my part of a collaborative build for a LEGO store display. Not sure why my LUGmate didn't just email me the pictures directly.

    FInally got started on un-haunting #10228. Frustratingly close with the green pieces, so need to put in a spares order. Got my count completely wrong for the windows, so the PAB order that arrived is not enough. Need to work out exactly what I've missed and put in another PAB order. Time to cash in some VIP points.

    About to get paid for a design project with a ton of Walmart cards. Hoping they will do some crazy discounts again like last Fall soon...
  • LegoboyLegoboy Member Posts: 8,827
    Just spent the last 90 minutes dismantling the required parts from my son's #7498 Police Station to enable me to put the stickers on. How a 6 year old is supposed to mount 35 stickers, !35 STICKERS! square is a mystery to me.
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ Member Posts: 4,179
    I bought a second hand one of those and the stickers were EVERYWHERE!
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Member Posts: 4,027
    I'll take full responsibility. I made him buy it ;-)
  • LegoboyLegoboy Member Posts: 8,827
    Probably left for the 6 year old to do!! ;-)

    10 points to whoever can name the Sunday afternoon film AND the set. :-)

  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Member Posts: 4,027
    #7347 And the box was damaged ;-)

    Free Willy at a guess.

    It ain't big and it ain't clever.
  • caperberrycaperberry Member Posts: 2,226
    #7498, before the stickers were applied.
  • LegoboyLegoboy Member Posts: 8,827
    I don't know, you try and have a bit of fun on a slow Sunday afternoon and the person that supplies the set has to go and spoil it. Tut [shakes head] . Shameful.
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Member Posts: 4,027
    I'll have a word with myself in the corner.
  • samiam391samiam391 Member Posts: 4,492
    Can I guess since I didn't give him the set?

    ....#7437 (the box was damaged, just taking a gander with that one).

    10 points please... or I'll just go ahead and trade them in for those fantastic looking socks :o)

    ^^Joint answer between @Si and I...

    You get the left sock, I'll take the right one?
  • ISDAvengerISDAvenger Member Posts: 205
    I am currently deployed, so my building will be limited for the next 10 months.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation Member Posts: 5,572
    My copy of "Brick City" has just arrived on my desk. How am I supposed to do any work now?!?
  • RomanticWarriorRomanticWarrior Member Posts: 248
    Free minibuild days are annoying

    Wife: Do you [kids] want to go to the LEGO store to build the Star Wars Droid?
    Kids: yes!

    Me: okay, put on your shoes; we're leaving
    Kid: I don't want to go
    Me: You sure? This is your last chance.
    Kid: I don't want to go

    8:00pm (bedtime)
    Kid: I want to go to the LEGO store and build the droid.
  • dejavudejavu Member Posts: 235
    Going out of town for four days. Oh no, LEGO WITHDRAWAL!!!!
  • MorkManMorkMan Member Posts: 916
    ^ Bring some with you. I always have a canister of random LEGO with me - an assortment of wheels/bricks/plates and a minifig or two. I keep them all in a #31000 plastic box. It's good for the cravings - and keeps my sons happy, too.
  • dejavudejavu Member Posts: 235
    MorkMan, I saw your response too late, I was already at my trip location, where, sad to say, it rained all weekend. Next time, I'll definitely use your tip.
  • LegobutterflyLegobutterfly Member Posts: 488
    Cannot wait to receive my swapped polys, and the minififures and sets bought, in the coming week. Oooh and the star wars keyrings off ebay, hopefully gonna be a lego-fun filled week. Bring it on :D
  • BlazingDragonBlazingDragon Member Posts: 1
    About to start building my largest City set ever...# 7208: Fire Station.
    Picked it up for a bargain $395 MXN at my local Walmart (in the district of Mexico City I live in). Equivalent of $32 USD (including tax)! :-)
  • scarecrow2400scarecrow2400 Member Posts: 99
    Just got home from watching Iron Man 3 and am now contemplating rebuilding the Avengers Quinjet . . .
  • MorkManMorkMan Member Posts: 916
    @dejavu Glad to help, albeit it was late!
  • ErnstErnst Member Posts: 133
    Sorting out several boxes with spare parts, not real fun but usefull.
  • LegobutterflyLegobutterfly Member Posts: 488
    Feels like it was christmas today, lots of packages of Lego and minifigures arrived today, woo hoo!
  • carlqcarlq Member Posts: 792
    Agreed, Beth - and thank you again! :-)

    Bought and built #76009 Superman: Black Zero Escape and #76002 Superman Metropolis Showdown over the last couple of days - primarily for the minfigs, to be honest, but I must admit I've really enjoyed building the sets themselves. Lots of interesting technique and nice parts. I plan to splurge with my VIP points later this month and get #76003 Superman: Battle of Smallville - if the build is as fun as it looks, that's going to be an entertaining afternoon!
  • MorkManMorkMan Member Posts: 916
    Happy! I got my official shirt today in the mail! Can't wait to wear it to LEGOLand in June!
  • JenniJenni Member Posts: 1,390
    My daughter has discovered the Atlantis movie on YouTube and has declared her "need" to have all the sets. I'm thinking of blocking YouTube :).
  • Captain_EyebrowCaptain_Eyebrow Member Posts: 177
    I'm pondering if its a tad foolhardy to start on 'Iron Mans Lab' instructions only a few weeks before we move?
  • OldLegoOldLego Member Posts: 28
    With one starting to be built, and two more in the just isn't enough to feel secure.
  • dejavudejavu Member Posts: 235
    Working on some vignettes for a series titled "Snape Goes on Vacation".
  • adukaduk Member Posts: 155
    Kicking myself for not buying knight bus and Hogwarts for rrp when I found them on holiday with my family
  • dejavudejavu Member Posts: 235
    Lone Ranger sets not in my local store yet, or I'd be working those.
  • PaperballparkPaperballpark Member Posts: 4,268
    Currently sorting a £100 order from Lego Bricks & Pieces that arrived this morning (approx 800 bricks). A third of the pieces to build #10185 Green Grocer!

    It's my birthday today and as I open my cards, there's a Lego card made by my brother, he has written an amazing story inside too :)
  • carlqcarlq Member Posts: 792
    Happy Birthday, @legonut80. One of my friends made me a Lego birthday card for my last birthday, too - it's got pride of place in my scrapbook!
  • PaperballparkPaperballpark Member Posts: 4,268
    Yes, happy birthday @legonut80!

    I've just spent about 3 hours on bricklink ordering the remaining 759 bricks I need for Green Grocer :)

    Received my LEGO Minifigures Character Encyclopedia book yesterday. My son just read the whole book - cover to cover (took him 2.5 hours). The Toy Soldier minifigre is my new favorite. Very nicely done. I'd love to have an army of these guys - but I have a feeling I'm going to need to buy a bunch of the books as there probably won't be many who buy the book and part with the minifig.
  • dejavudejavu Member Posts: 235
    Going to the LEGO store today! Can't wait to see what they have on the PAB wall.
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Member Posts: 3,639
    Was having a tough week and happy to see Friday. Came home to a big [email protected] box and knew it was my B-Wing & Han so even happier. Then where I would usually drop my keys I see something that makes me the happiest I can be. My gf loves of me and chose to show it in the form of Lego!
