    Due to a WTB post for the Iron Man Centurion fig that I casually checked for it on ebay just now and was shocked. Totally misjudged it thinking that it would drop to ~$20 range like the previous figs from the initial ~$30+ mark when it first came out. Instead it's climbing quickly to $45+ with very few listings. Even on BL, there's barely any listed from US sellers.

    Also peeked at SDCC SH figs values and was very shocked with the 2013 series already at ~$900 levels. I'm sad I sold off my 2 extra Black Supermans too early a few months ago at $500 a piece. Grr!!

    And the other post about #10188 Deathstar sticker sheet reminded me I had to pick up an extra still, which just arrived.

    Took my daughter to pick up her birthday presents today.  All the new Elves sets (except Fire Dragon, will pick that up next month for the Sira polybag).  She might be a bit spoiled.

    Oh, and I bought my own birthday present too.  Guess who's building Giant Man this weekend :)

    ^^ The Hub Birds are fantastic.  

    That Harry Potter in the Ewok Village reminds me of the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man in Manhattan.

    My order of baseplates arrived from Amazon today, so I get to finish building my flag mosaic.

    So what is my LEGO status today? I have just received my Double VIP order.

    Just on time to have a fruitful LEGO weekend!

    Saw #7922 on the main site and realized Galidor has more competition than I thought.

    so everyone sees the same random set? at least I saw the same.
  • plasmodiumplasmodium UKMember Posts: 1,939
    ^I always assumed so. But I see #7180 now - and when I close and re-open the tab it is still the same set, so it obviously doesn't generate a new one every time it loads. That said, I don't know how often it changes anyway - maybe once per day?

    Having a 200k bricks party tonight! Thought that was a good reason for a celebration! Got about 197k in sets and at least 3000 in loose bricks. I remember somebody else celebrating that a year or so ago so thought I'd try and do that as well ;)

    And these guys just arrived in time to join the festivities!

    ^So what's the goal a million?  I am just past 50, 000 so I've got a long ways to go even to 200, 000 but it must feel good!  Have a great party!

    @tallblocktoo well, it feels good and scary seeing as I'm only an AFOL for a year and a half. So that means about 360 bricks a day - not good for the wallet ;) so only 6,5 year to go to the million at rate.

    PS it does include my son's sets, we share :)

    Congrats. I'm only at ~113,000 pieces in my private collection, and I've been at it for years.

    I would try counting up my bulk parts from job lots, but that would take too long.

    @snowhitie. I think you can probably make it to 1 million bricks in 4-5 years. If you increase your buying rate.

    Sure @Legoboy, although not sure what @SirKevbags is doing between all these girls!

    The more the merrier (and please bring polybags instead of bottles of wine with you, I'm still on a lot of pain meds so can't drink that much). And if it wasn't for my Brickset buddy's I would never be able to achieve these life-goals, you give me the strength to carry on! Thanks for the encouraging message @Venunder !

    Wow impressive.  Apparently I am not buying at a fast enough rate!  My wallet will thank me I guess.

    Finally finished the MOC I've been fiddling with for days for the March contest thread! Now I'm all impatient to photograph it in the morning when the light's good (can't use flash - boyfriend lying on sofa with migraine, alas)...

    Also, I'm hoping that in another day or two my Palace Cinema will come. I'm going to save building it until after a big personal admin project is finished, but it'll be so nice just to know I have it. :)

    Woken up early by a whinging dog, so grabbed a little set (#70599) for my stash to try to distract me from how early it is...think i might need another coffee soon.

    Congrats! No celebration for me though.

    As of now I have about 748K parts from official sets, and 20K loose/PAB. I'm wondering when I'll be able to reach the 1 million bricks milestone, probably will take another 2 to 3 years at least.

    today, my 3rd Palace Cinema arrived.
    i now have all the parts needed to build the MOC i have planned.
    it name is still up in the air right now.
    but i will give it a name at some point.
    i finished the Palace Cinema normal build. it is a stunning model.
    wish i could keep it as is. but for many reasons that can not be.
    one of the biggest of them reasons is that i do not wish to have a carbon copy, Modular Buildings street that everyone has. i wish to give it the chrisalddin makeover.
    so that is is unique to me. and i can be extra proud of myself.
    after all that is what makes the Modular Buildings so appealing.

    if you have not done so. look up the Instructions for Cafe Corner book 2.
    at the back of the book it show's the Idea and the feel Lego was aiming for with this theme.
    and you can see this idea and feel in all the Modular Buildings made by lego.

    piece sorting of 2 copy's of #10232 done.
    that about 4400 pieces.
    took me about 6 hours to do.
    it is all in food tubs now, and in an order i hope will make it easy to find what i need.
    next is the long build.

    oh and i have tubs of lego all over my room. lol

    and at 5.30pm to add to my stress the blow heater i was using so my room is not an Ice chamber. Died. as some of you know our water boiler packed up last Monday, new one being fitted this coming Monday. so the house's heating is out.
    the only way to heat a room is by hot Air blower. so with mum's say so, jumped on Argos, and looked up a blow heater, and placed a order for it got it 8pm order placed at about 6pm. 2 hours. that a good service from Argos there. 
    and cheaper then getting a taxi to the Argos store and back.

    Someone on Done Deal is selling #10027 - Train Shed. http://brickset.com/sets/10027-1/Train-Engine-Shed
    I never knew this set existed, and even though I have no train in my layout I WANT IT!!!!
    But it's going for €200 and I just can't justify it....I might Bricklink a smaller version tho....hmm there's another project for the list.

    Oh, and I got animal control lady (or whatever she's called) CMF today - so yeah, happy bout that!

    That train shed is so nice... but i do so enjoy that the exclusive yellow dolly ("sack truck") is $37 dollars on BrickLink.

     Don't worry about the duplo, afterwards you can use it to fill up mountains or rooftops!

    And in a couple of years you can play together and people will buy Lego for your kid that you get to play with too!

    Ooohhh... 500 likes ;) - I'm easily pleased! Especially since I still can't play with my Lego and only have the forum to keep me in the mood.

    Actually a bit miffed, I'd planned to build this weekend (with my recently acquired sets that contributed to the 2K party) but I really could not sit up still although my spinal surgery is been over for a month and a half. Apparently I've got a spinal fluid leak so no more getting up.  Still hoping my body can heal it itself otherwise it's a lumbar blood patch and that doesn't sound fun. Sorry- doing want to turn this place into a complain about your medical problems thing, but I needed a whine ;)

    My thumbs up is an empathy thumbs up not a like as it sounds bloody painful and very frustrating. Hope things work out without the need for further surgery.
