    @Briking I can sympathise with that. I recently had a Pick a Brick order that Yodel managed to keep sending back and forth between depots

    @adiemc and then whilst I'm out walking the dog at lunch time. They deliver. Pristine condition, so no idea what the damage was all about.
  • VenunderVenunder Nottingham, UK.Member Posts: 2,526
    ^ It is possible the first delivery van was in a traffic accident. They assumed all the packages in the van would be damaged, but after being returned to the depot they found yours was okay so they sent it out for delivery again?
    Or maybe they were playing pass the parcel? :)

    After a Lego hiatus (not a real dark age, just have a lot of expenses at the moment) I got my first set in over a year delivered with my Tesco online grocery shop - I couldn't resist, #41031 Andrea's Mountain Hut for £2.50.  The boyfriend just tried to stare me into shame but I wasn't having it.
    Whoa, that's 75% off!! I've just been round to look at Tesco Direct, and they seem pretty competitive with their prices (at least compared to Amazon) most of the time - and you get Clubcard points. I think that might have to be my solution to the whole "can I justify buying new sets?" problem, at least when they have a good discount. 

    Do they ever get the modular buildings? Because if so, that could push me over the edge to finally getting us one during Double Points season!

    This one was in the groceries section of Tesco rather than through direct (stock has to be available in a radius near you before they deliver), but I have purchased through direct before at good discounts - though 75% is quite rare!  There are swaths of posts on Brickset about the wild Tesco goose chase when those kinds of discounts happen, but I don't think I've ever seen them on modulars, unfortunately.  Perhaps someone with a better memory can correct me?

    Installed our LUG's likely last display window at the Milwaukee store. Very happy with the final product and I hope it enjoys its new home.

    Vanilla forms seems to change the way attached pictures work every day.... So here is custom Helm's Deep Book 1 finished.   There is consternation on the face of Eomer, since there is no ramp to proceed out of the gates!

    @KevBrickstruct - when is Book 2 going to be available?  Riders of Rohn want to know.

    @Klatu003 How many Helms Deep are required for that build?
  • samiam391samiam391 A Log Cabin in KY, United StatesMember Posts: 4,335
    @klatu003 - Any chance we could get some more pictures? It looks great, although smaller than I anticipated. 
  • klatu003klatu003 Hobbiton, Shire, Middle EarthMember Posts: 723
    @Briking - It is 4,700 pieces.  Lots of parts are different from the sets.  I think I had two sets as a base for parts, then went a-brick-link-ing.

    @samiam391  I'll work on more pictures.  It doesn't photograph as large as it is in person.  Perhaps because the proportions are very true?  I'll populate it with a bunch of minifigs to give it scale.

    @samiam391https://www.flickr.com/photos/klatu0039/with/16899626215/ This should help - the first photo was too straight on.  I added Golden Hall of Edoras for scale.

    @klatu003  Now I'm interested. Where do you get the instructions?
  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332
    Thought I'd got the monorail bug out of my system borrowing #6990, but apparently not... I may have also bought a second monorail already. :s

    #6991 gets a lot of stick and I can see that aesthetically its a bit of a mess but it actually looks pretty great in the flesh and interestingly having asked my two boys which was better (having played with both #6990 and #6991) the reply was a unanimous and definite #6991 by a landslide. Of course they don't have the childhood memories of pineing for that lovely trans blue and white marvel but objectively I think I agree, #6991 is better.

    Highly recommended. Very clear instructions, great build, fantastic finished product.

    @klatu003 - I have no problem posting it... it appears you're just not trusted. The shame ;)

    Honestly though, probably just another vanilla forum error.

    @iccarus, why is that your LUG's last window display at the Milwaukee store?

    Added a bunch more pictures of Helm's Deep.  I added a ramp.  Not up to Kevin's design, but it gets the horses to the ground.

    Good on Johnny and well done Fairy Bricks for keeping up the excellent work you do!
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,330
    ^^ I wasn't at all surprised to see that Johnny was getting involved. I met him a couple of times at the bird of prey centre I used to work at and he's a nice guy, and very down to earth.

    Yesterday I was at a trade show for work...even there I wound up coming away with Lego based stuff...

    I have dreamed that my husband wanted to offer me the Pet Shop to thank me for all my overtime recently, but it had just retired.

    It probably means:
    a) I should really get the Pet Shop before it retires; and
    b) I have worked done a lot of overtime recently and I deserve it.

    :D

    ^listen very carefully @Elune if you can afford it and have the overtime to up for the excuse I would be placing an order today for the Pet Shop.

    Believe me, within months, well ok, within a year, you will be happy that you did that.

    @Shib , not off topic there have been more than a few times where I pondered paying my mortgage or buying a Lego set. Obviously, the sane part of me paid the mortgage :)

    Bah, who needs shelter when you can have plastic Lego goodness?  I've decided to just build one of my own out of the blocks.

    I spent the weekend working on call in my home office. I got bored so I disassembled, sorted and stored about 90% of my mocs. I also disassembled a few sets and added those pieces to my collection. Not a bad way to spend 23 hours.

    Technically, you "bought one."

    I think I could just about build a shed out of Lego. :)
    Fortunately I do not need to, as I do have a real house.

    I now, also have a Super Secret Police Dropship for £29. :)

    You guys are aware that I redesigned my 'Mini Milano Spaceship' be used an upcoming project. Now I can say that it could be unveiled before May 2015. I'm really pumped and can't wait for you guys to see what it is...stay tuned!
