TRU has a promotion this month to win a $250 giftcard for writing a review of something bought form them, check your email.
If you're not aware, today is World Down Syndrome Day, one of the awareness aspects is to post pictures of you in crazy socks. Built at very short notice by @ame_uwagi and yes they are Roberts legs!
They shouldn't really hurt that much, as you aren't stepping on any pointy corners, but the studs can't be comfortable...
But happy to have got some. :)
Got to look on the bright side. It means more money for TRU Lego with promo gift cards at the end of the week. :)
on the + side my x2 VIP points order number 4, should be with me tomorrow.
the only set's i have left to get that are "hard to find" set's. (that are not part of my dream "if only" wish list.) are Detective Office, Brick Bank, and GBHQ.
all other sets on my list right now are sets that i think will drop in price. and i am just waiting to "A" have the money and "B" see it at a good price.
oh and to give you a idea, Tower Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Slave 1, Sandcrawler, SHIELD Helicarrier, and #75105 Millennium Falcon (who i don't need as i own the last Falcon.)
are all on my Dream "if only" wish list. (that is "if only" i has the Money!)
after all you did not try to pinch a part and get court with your hand in the lego box.
you did the grown up thing and negotiated a trade for the part you needed!
However, I'd like to say that my thoughts keep going to the victims and families from this tragedy and the ones before. I hope we can stay strong and not cower in fear.
The Brickset community is such a nice place, sure we have our US vs UK jabs or about how exactly do you count the reduction in price from VIP points, the reseller debate and sometimes discussions get heated. But in the end we are there for each other, to help each other out, to laugh, to sometimes share a bad (ebay or other) experience but we come together in our love for Lego.
So my wish for tonight is that everybody would get infected with this community-feeling and an all encompassing love for peace and understanding. So that the world would not need violence like this but just some respect for other people and their views with lots and lots of talk, banter and sausage jokes.
Perhaps it's just the tactile nature of using an SLR cleaning kit, or perhaps it's just the fact that it doesn't get that dusty now it's on deep shelves.
On the plus side, I rearranged my collection in its storage a little and managed to clear some space! :-)
Pop Star Tour Bus from Warehouse Deals. Damaged box, but looks like just nicked corners. Largest set I ever bought, looking forward to it. Only missing Livi's House for my Pop Star collection.
Also got Ultimate Aaron. Combined that and Macy into my Dacey Mormont MOC.
Put the parts I didn't use on Bricklink, many unique pieces that should do well.
It seems hard to open up set bags cleanly enough to reuse them. I do reuse bubblemailers.
plan 1, turn it in to 3 flats with one way down to ground level,
plan 2, have one big open floor plan room.
but i am going with.
plan 3, has parts of 1 and 2,
i going with plan 3.4 right now. lol.
i had to change "plan 3" 4 times, (why i added the ".4")
it will have 3 bedroom or 2 bedroom and 1 bathroom with a living room and kitchen . as well as a under-stares cupboard. (if i go with the 3 bedroom idea then there is a chamber pot under the bed's :),
still have a lot of planning to do, the ground level pet shop for 1. now i only need 1 stares from ground level. i can use the ones in my lego store build, and there for i can link all 3 flats over the shops in to one big flat. and have one big open space pet shop. with a little lego store on the right hand side of the block.
it should be good, :P
