A friend sent this to me today:
Still made me sad though.
i wish to build a Moc.
i just don't know ware to start or what to build.
give me a set. and tell me to improve it, and i can go for hours.
trying to do some think with no start point (part from a pile of bricks) and i am at a loss.
Plus, I'd prefer we saved up to get something a little bigger instead, closer to my birthday! ;)
So far I've opened a few sets to play with, namely the Helm's Deep Battle :)
Next to be opened will likely be the Tower of Orthanc.
One day. I'm saving them for my boys. Still have every set in their boxes, along with the various polybags, and a few multiples. My sons' heads will explode the day we open them.
Only option to keep going (while awaiting a replacement) is to take one out of my Fairground Mixer.
I've never actually had a missing piece though.
And my #31026 Bike Shop & Café came with a duplicated bag and missing a bag. Since it didn't came with numbered bag, I had to do a full inventory of the included parts and cross-reference it with the instructions part list to order the replacement pieces. That was fun!
I've had a couple of experiences of missing pieces, but nothing as big as a 4x8 plate. Very bizarre. Thankfully, the one I took from the Fairground Mixer was in the turning mechanism for the ride, which was made redundant anyway by the power functions. Stroke of luck this time.
7 year old girl happy with the set I got on sale for her awhile back. It is fun to put the people together first, or in this case the elf. She then asked for the "double legos". Well, that is where the word DUPLO came from. Got the tub out of the basement. She quickly built a house, but stacked the bricks on top of each other rather than interlocking them and was all annoyed when I tried to correct her engineering.
Her 3 year old sister had a T shirt that said "Science is for girls". Daddy already knew about #21110 Research Institute. I showed him #41116 Olivia's Exploration Car. I also said that TLG is making a point of making female minifigures in stereotypically male jobs generally.
Didn't bother asking TLG for replacement, just went to a local Lego shop and spent a few bucks to get them.
So dispatched now but being delivered in 2 months? Guess that's coming by horse and carriage then...
But how weird... I had an equally odd dispatch notification from Amazon this morning that they had dispatched only 1 item in my 4 order item - because they waiting for the other 3 items to come back in stock.
Why is that odd? Because all 4 items were in stock when I ordered them and the 3 items that weren't dispatched are still in stock now. WTF Amazon!? Now I have to wait in for two parcels on 2 different days rather than wait in for one. Only reason I can think of (aside from laziness) is that the items are in different warehouses. Still...
they didnt fit and i had to pay the shipping back for a refund!
shoes did cost 30€
but the money from 14€ parcel to germany i will never see again!
but amazon changed something in this regard this year! it was not amazon tough. but 3rd party seller offering amazon prime free shipping
what a scam!
i still have 1 unopened copy of #10695.
as i am doing this i am also doing a rework o how i store some types of bricks.
this is not a small job. good odds are I'll be at this for hours.
Started dismantling the 3 sets I currently have out on display so I have space to build something else and actually felt bad pulling Wall-e's head off.
still have a room to tidy up but the mass sorting of lego part's is done for today.
Mom found a lego city trucks board book for the 3 year old boy. I liked how that respected the importance of blue collar work rather than demeaning it in the name of jobs that require higher education.
