    ^Holy sun damage!!! I hope you got a tremendous deal :)
    There is actually no sun damage, the lighting in my house is just pretty yellow.  Wife and I prefer a "warm" feeling in the house.   I just disassembled and sorted everything and besides the beat up box and manual and some dust, the pieces are great condition.  Oh and my fingers are killing me from all the dis-assembly! 
    Oh good because my wife, who is a photographer, said that if it was the lighting, why is the discoloration sporatic? 

    I am glad your pieces are ok, that would have sucked.

    Work asked me today if I'd travel to Belgium on Monday, now I just need a good excuse to stop off at Legoland while I'm there!

    it will never leave you.
    for the rest of your life at random times it will just pop in to your day to day thinking.
    just like that out of the blue.
    you will never be free.

    Build Commander Cody and Poe Dameron last night.  Those constraction figures make for great study breaks.

    Am I the only one who, upon seeing a Technic set, asks themselves first and foremost even before I ask myself if I can afford it: "Can I fit a Constraction figure in the seat(s)?". If I answer "yes", then I pretty much have to get it to see if I can. With that logic, this now means I need that £250 Technic Porsche 911...

    I am willing to bet you a bacon sandwich that you end up spending at least double if not triple the rrp of your list above by the end of the year.  ;)
    @Legoboy wins! I can confirm that I have spent twice the RRP of the products combined besides the Ghostbusters HQ from my initial purchase guide and plan posted early 2016.

    This week I was seriously considering selling majority of my LEGO collection, I feel it's the lack of space that's frustrating me. I wake up everyday with LEGO all over the floor! Most of my sets I've purchased for the licence or Minifigures. I tried cutting it down this year but that clearly hasn't worked, we are not even at the half way point yet! I got to stick to models, got to stick with models, got to stick with models!

    Faintly twitchy, wondering if Tesco's pricing on the Fortrex (£59.99) will hold until the (final, sob) double points offer kicks in on the 16th... I'm still waiting to find out how many points I've actually earned this quarter but I'm hoping that with the double points I can get £20 - 30 off it...

    That is what will likely be the deciding factor on whether or not I pick up the Porsche.

    Got the Friends magazine today because of the cute little ice cream cart which comes with it. 
    In other news I have also given up hope of ever finding the farmer CMF so I'm not even trying to feel anymore. Today's random CMF picks turned out to be the jewel thief & the ballerina...but I really the pig :-(

    I know the feeling; I haven't had the chance to get anywhere that sells that series for a while and I keep thinking all the farmers will be gone. I want the pig and the pitchfork! :(

    Last night I built 76050 Crossbones Hazard Heist.  Today I'm building 41176 The Secret Market Place.

    The Superhero design teams could really learn a lot from the Elves design team.

    I am glad your pieces are ok, that would have sucked.
    All day Friday at work, I started to second guess my initial inspection.  I really started to get worried.  Got home that evening, grabbed what I had built so far and went out under my shop lights...looked fine.  Built a little more that night.  Throughout the night, I would think the assembly got yellower and yellower.  First thing in the morning brought it out onto the porch with the sun.  Again, looked fine.  Looked at our dining room (where I am building) and told my wife I hate that room.  The lighting is really dim/warm, around 2500K, the walls are a light tan, with the curtains being a light tan and green.  I think all those things contributed to the weird lighting in that room.  I even rummaged through some old pieces I have and found a light gray and light bluish gray that had been faded and yellowed and compared.  I also compared to them to brand new pieces.  In the end I am good, until my mind convinces me I am not again. haha

    I am 3/4 way finished and only found a few small missing parts that were easily filled by what I had lying around.  

    I do appreciate everyone's concern :)

    I'd gladly deal with some cat dust rather than discoloration.

    Or a set coming from a smoker's home.  That's the complete pits.  When the bricks stick to your hands... ugh...

    That works best for pillows.

    (Kidding.  I have a bag with micro-holes when I have to clean or disenfect Lego.  I tend to only do rise cycles and avoid tumbling or spinning the pieces if possible.)

    Letter openers (if designed to be dull) are good for getting pieces apart when a brick separator doesn't work.

    WalMart has more clearance LEGO than I can afford, a good problem to have, better than not finding anything. Got some today and will go back ASAP.

    Sorting through a job lot as well as parting out clearance sets.

    I see what you did there. Putting the A in AFOL? ;)
    But seriously, I always try to handle collectibles with clean dry hands, though gloves seem like overkill.

    I broke a piece of LEGO for the first time last night... Well, since being a child, anyway.

    I was building #79003 An Unexpected Gathering and was clipping 4544525: Plate 2X3 W. Holder to 4225823: Brick 1X1 W. Handle to make the gate and one of the clips just snapped. :-(

    I'm sure that I wasn't putting undue force on the clip, so I was quite surprised...

    Hehe, no worries there... Bionicle doesn't interest me at all and I'm just starting to dip my toes into new Technic...

    It just annoyed me, as the set is now incomplete, until I source a replacement... ;-)

    I'm actually surprised that I haven't broken the odd piece before, as some parts with clips like this are likely to be more fragile than most other parts.
