-30% on all lego. i ll be the first in the row infront of the shop in the morning!
Kinda random but just came from a Destiny match in which Mark Stafford was on the opposition. Game crashed and didn't get to add him as a friend though.
Neat glue separation, no rips or bent cardboard. Can't think of any way this could be better. All with one small knife.
What's everyone else's box opening method (if any)?
On another note, who has got any of the large HP sets to trade? New theme coming up...
Disclaimer: This is not a post to bash Amazon, rather these happen to be my worse encounters throughout the years with hundreds of Amazon orders.
What's your process?
I'm curious to see if the faded yellow comes back.
It could have been so much worse.
i could build it faster but i trying to take my time with it.
also trying to work out how to display it.
i have some ideas. but other stuff may have to be moved.
in other news i placed a order for "Technic #42043 Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 Truck"
so part from some Technic set's i got back in 2008 or so. i have not had a lot of experience with Technic. should i buy some small and midsize set's before trying the #42043 or jump in head first at the deep end?
nah. jump in and get bucket wheel excavator next (can we say BWE ? )
£30 off is good. but i know that there will be better offers later on.
i hoping for £120 or better for the BWE.
i had a look at the Instructions for #42043 online and it looks like a long hard build.
It's also possible to make something that can never be dismantled. The instructions never tell you to do that, but it's possible to do so by mistake.
take it slow and check your progress at every step.
right got it.
Their service is good, I get free replacements for 2 of the 3 sets.
I'm not actually sure there's anything I want at the moment, but I'll definitely be picking up the VIP Creator Tiger for my daughter.
Watch this space to see if I manage to come out of the store without anything for myself...
win a cash prize. :)
then there is this other thing called saving up.
the last action i take is to plan.
forward planning is a big help.
and the £60 off RRP i saved on #42043 helps to.
so dose the Lego store VIP program.
true i am bad at saving up cash. but i can and do save up from time to time.
GBHQ has been on my planned to buy this month for the last 5 months.
could i have got it sooner if i got no other lego set's with in that 5 months? well yes. i could have.
Come on Team GB! #GoingForGold
Bet you didn't get much sorting done :)
Just so chuffed for the ladies, they fought so hard to stay in with a chance, the Dutch were so impressive in attack but Hinch was incredible. What a great result.
all of Teem GB are doing so well.
all us UK members need to keep on cheering on teem GB.
That is gold right there! buwahahaha!!
Here's the final product: large and medium instructions with accompany small instructions (e.g. trains) in the large boxes, small and extra-small (e.g. polybags) in small boxes.
@snowhitie post enticed me to add the tabs with the set numbers.
I've been doing some organizing myself. Regrettably it is just emptying my study/library to make room for my husband's office when he starts his own business in a couple of months. seeing all this space kind of just wants me to take it up and make it into a Lego room. Does he really need an office?
i just can not make up my mind.
You'd probably find it a better introduction to Technic than the Arocs because the mechanisms aren't so complicated or deeply embedded.
(And upon closer consideration, she followed it up by asking me what a pay phone was, and where we could find one.)
