    I'm beginning to wonder what exactly you were doing in your absence... LOL

    Causing a paradox, i think. ;oP

    My wonderful partner brought me #21004 (Architecture Guggenheim) and #40026 (Statue of Liberty polybag) back from New York. Perfect gifts!

    Found a Chima Lion Temple marked down to $35 today. But upon inspection at the counter I turned it down. Something about the parts bagged up in bedspread packaging, the bonus coupons for $.50 off licorice, and other assorted garbage inside turned me off it.

    Postman just delivered my Blocks Minifigures, the question is now, do I leave them in the wrapping or add them as characters in my modulars?

    Sorry, I can't seem to upload the image just now?

    I'm building a definitive Hulkbuster; expect to see it around the UK release date (Thursday April 23rd) for Avengers: Age of Ultron!

    No, I will not be showing any work in progress because it keeps the excitement for when it will be shown (I learnt that from other MOC's.) I got the body and arms done last night and I just need to finish designing the legs and feet. After that I need to purchase the Hulkbuster set to see how the printed head piece fits with the MOC and order any other pieces that I need from an online parts seller. Unlike the official set where LEGO have to make it sturdy enough for rough play, my model will be much smaller with accurate scale between the Hulk.

    Having Just built

    I feel I could convert this into a Mumak for LOTR.
    However I also have a feeling it might cost less to make a Mumak from scratch.

    ^I got this set for this purpose also.  It was a fun build and the Mammoth is "pretty good looking for a mech."  When completed I started thinking about using it for Game of Thrones....  For LOTR all that trans blue will have to go.

    Was at Walmart for diapers and saw the same Lion Temple that was full of garbage back on the shelf without even an attempt made to tape it up. Pitiful.

    Today I'm throwing a pity party for a set that for some reason just couldn't get off the ground....yes I'm talking about the Ninjago MechDragon. On the outside it looks like it should be a really popular and happy set. Yet it sits in stacks at every Wal-Mart and TRU clearance area unloved. Even at the ultra low price of $19.98 it sits waiting for someone to take it home. Heart breaking.

    ^I think the set looks downright stupid (sorry kids), but for $19.99 I'd pick them up as some great part packs!

  • Thanos75Thanos75 Member Posts: 1,117
    I picked up a couple more but I really don't have enough room in my car to pick up the amount of them I saw today. I saw at least 40 between Wal-Mart and Tru. Wal-Mart has them for $25 and TRU for $20. Not sure where they came from but the TRU by me had a shelf full of Lone Ranger mine sets for $40....
  • BumblepantsBumblepants DFWMember Posts: 5,946
    ^LR Mine is a great parts pack for that price. I wish I had got more when they were around that price.
  • Thanos75Thanos75 Member Posts: 1,117
    I'm going to roll the dice. That TRU doesn't really move much stuff. I'm pretty sure they will still be there at the end of the month. Will see if they go lower.

    At Middlesex University they are building a 4-6 ft tall logo of the university, I will try and get a picture before the end of the week. Maybe I could give them a hand :)
    Not sure if you got around to post a picture. I think you needed to be a student to be able to add a brick. Anyway, the end result: http://www.mdx.ac.uk/news/2015/02/students-turn-middlesex-crest-into-giant-lego-sculpture

    @mressin Yeah I fogot to post it, I am a student at the uni, however only the third years where allowed to participate. Maybe if I built it would have been done in one week!

    I looked at it closely and I felt that it wasn't well rendered, but who is the certified LEGO professional, certainly not me!

    I had to dig out a pair of smart shoes today I tried them on and something didn't feel right, I took it off to look and inside was a small piece of Lego :(

    You are Jar Jar, and this is all just a dream...

    @Pitfall69 I honestly always just picture you as Jar Jar when reading your posts. Like, even when you're saying something about building Lego with your kids, I just imagine Jar Jar building Lego with some kids.

    Whenever you mention your hair salon I always think "Who the heck would let Jar-Jar near them with something sharp like scissors?!"

    Yeah, they don't let me anywhere near scissors :)

    Seriously? You can't just toss that in there like that. It needs to be a post of its own and then we can move on from there.

    It's been almost 16 years and thankfully most of it has left my memory. All except Jar Jar, who I'm reminded of every day thanks to your wonderful avatar. ;)

    I'm shopping on Bricklink for the first time and intended to buy one or two parts that are not common in the UK. They cost no more than 50p but found out I have £60+ in the basket now!

    DANGER! DANGER...

    The Argos City Hero Sticker promotion ended on 15th January. :)
    It does say this on the card, that you have to send away to Wales, to get the watch.

    I'm a shopaholic... ^^; I buy way more sets than I can display in my microscopic apartment (I can hardly display more than two medium-sized sets).
    "But I'm moving into a house soon! Imagine how cool it will be then!" Ahem... >_> I'm especially vulnerable with retired/soon-to-be-retired sets.
