Amazon have now shipped my Dr Strange and Mystery Machine sets I ordered at the start of September, so at least that to look forward to. Now they just need to get some boxes of the Mystery Mansion so they can ship that backorder too...
Here is what I just finished. Added some foliage and flowers. Haven't applied stickers I might do my own. Love this thing, what a nifty design from LEGO. I'm going to be tinkering around a lot with this as I learn some technique and acquire parts.
In this particular case Amazon UK was price matching 1 of the local retailers, and lots of Lego went TooS. They finally received a new batch for 2 of the sets I ordered back then, now waiting for 2 more. Getting them for a good price is more important to me than getting them quickly :)
There are a ton of great nuggets in Friends that just aren't finding their way to City, and they are so DIFFERENT than Police and Fire. I want that School Bus in the Heartlake School...
I agree with you. I like a lot of friends stuff and don't mind that. I just found it funny that in this particular case I got the idea from a guy thing.
Amusement Park looks cool and I may get some later on sale.
Yes, CITY is very focused on police and fire (with some other vehicles, and nonurban things like Volcano Explorers), while Friends has more variety.
Sometimes Friends sets go with other sets on the same topic. #41092 Stephanie's Pizzeria was one of the first things I got after my dark age, to combine with #10036 Pizza To Go. I also have #30115 Jungle Boat and #6508 Wave Racer.
I like Pop Star because of my Lady Gaga phase; #41104 Dressing Room was another early purchase.
I haven't been interested in any Elves or Disney Princess sets, but I have kept some minidolls for Friends scenes.
As a BrickLink seller I'm open to LEGO I'm not personally interested in.
Costume piece CMFs are popular, so it makes sense to see that in minidolls and/or regular production too.
My fave 3 (in no particular order of preference) are:
Cute Little Devil
Babysitter (coz of the lickle baby minifig)
All except The Banana Guy who goes "commando" ;-)
@Legopants - I agree with you on the Cute Little Devil because he really is cute :-)
I kind of like the Cyborg too - her blue hair is pretty cool. And, yeah, the baby is soooo sweet :-)
All in all, I think this series is one of the better ones - some really great minifigs. Already looking forward to S17 :-))
I *might* pick up #853609 and #853610 Skin Packs, but that'll do... :-)
After looking at the WV subtheme on Brickset it says the original Holiday Train is part of the theme:( Sadly I am missing that one.
Spent most of the weekend on Lego 'admin', nowhere near bricks :(
on the plus side it means the main jobs now are building like mad and making cakes (Lego themed of course)
I missed the Holiday train too, it was already EOL when I started collecting the Winter series so not going to pay EOL price for it.
So I proved today I don't have willpower + I like Lego dragons?
