" Look, Ms. Rella, this isn't the Death Star. It takes time to build a quality structure. And yes, we'll catch the mouse."
I...sniff...miss building stuff. Seems all I'm doing lately is carrying things, dodging spiders and getting mouthfuls of dust.
well let see. i have a Pick a Brick Order. of 1 1x1 Brick that on order from [email protected] that is doing the round at Yodel as it go back and forth from the Hub to the wrong Local Depot it done the round trip 4 times at this point. it be nice if it end up in the right Depot this time.
Found the free £5 off code on the back of the Christmas catalog i got from Lego with my order that i plan to use. still have to get last years winter village set. even if it a remake of the older set i don't have the older one.
placed a order for #75150 (can type that set number of the top of my head right now.)
more set's have been pulled down. and are now in zip bags.
the display place for the winter village is open and it only needs me to build it. (not going to be that big with me only having 2 sets from winter village and i hope to have a 3rd by the 20th of next month.)
it looks like i be using #40222 as a Lego Chrismas advent calendar this year. i was hoping to find one of the City advent calendars in Sainsbury's. but i never seen one in my store.
hell i even be happy with friends advent calendar at this point :/ .......
in non-lego news.
picked up some new Christmas lights from homebase. the 240 light set. grate for going round the top of the room now my bedroom/lego room feels more chrismas like.
also got my Pokémon Sun and Moon. and am playing Moon. i think it cool that the day/night times are shifted 12 hours in Moon. in Pokémon Sun. the daylight time are the same as real world. it a lot of fun and feel even more real then X and Y or the Gen 3 remake. the 3d world is just way better. for a start. "your Mother Has a Bed room in her own House" still missing the bath room. but there is a building i poped in to (look like some type of town hall.) that did have a bath room. so there getting better at making it feel like a real world. and as i said it feels a lot more real this time.
The road plates turned up yesterday, so last night I did some rearranging of the street to add them in, built the basics of my street's park on a 32x32 green baseplate and also added the coffee kiosk from #60097 City Square with an additional #71004 Larry the Barista.
I'm now just waiting for the B&P order to turn up, so that I can continue building.
(I must say, the build was excellent. Lots of innovative design work, a ton of detail, and I felt like I didn't waste a piece or do any extraneous building. I will probably try my hand at building a back, once I can get my hands a few more copies of this set. I liked the Sydney Opera House build for similar reasons, but this set is much more complete.)
I had a good Lego day, asside from buying the Ferris Wheel to get the snowglobe (hmhm, yes because that is a sensible thing to do people), I got a lovely breakfast in bed for my name day accompanied by the Yellow Submarine. I even managed to build a bit this afternoon.
It didn't stop there, a lovely card came (unrelated to the above nameday) but from @stlux who got this in London, thanks a lot!
(I have no clue how it became black and white, hmh, mysterious...)
Plus, then somebody dropped off my new ride and I straight away decided it needed a Lego led-light, right @bendybadger ? Now to install some speakers for my tunes to pimp it more! (yeah, I'm on the down-low with the slang of today!)
I know it's three pictures in my post, but I made them all really small so shouldn't slow the thread down too much ;)

Also starting to panic about getting my things together for the school Christmas fair next Friday. I'm going to do a guess how many in the jar and then I have a few polybags to sell. I want to make it fun too, has anyone else got any ideas? The money raised goes to helping keeping the cost down on school trips and other things.
Waiting for replacement axles for the Winter Train to arrive.
Went to ToysRUs, with vague hopes that they may have another Pet Shop on the shelves - no luck. Bought Spaceport using a £15 gift card, left with a £20 gift card. They know how to pull me back in.
Haven't started the Passenger Train yet, despite getting two more coaches from eBay. Sorted final Bricklink purchase prior to building all the MOC'd rolling stock. Looking forward to the Assembly Square in January.
Now you can look clever too ;)
Good luck with the fair @legonut80 !
Also, waiting for my #10697 order to arrive (only one), and for Thursday to come by so that I can pick the other two I ordered online.
My 2 year old who is just starting to talk a bit more has been telling me all about our day at the Lego city shop, where he built a big truck with daddy :)
Wishing someone more funner and cooler ran Nintendo so theyd work with Lego on super awesome team ups and collaborations.
don't know if there are any interesting structures in pokemon, don't recall there were any when I played, in the days of the gameboy color... but most likely it would be based on the show.
Have spent 6 hours on and off this afternoon working out LEGO Dimensions and installing the Ghostbusters Story Pack. I don't think I'm thick but Christ that was long winded. A total of 5 gig download before playing the game, but how was I to know that?
Having downloaded it all I couldn't work out how to get into the Ghostbusters game. At five past midnight we finally made it. Just before, "Time for bed now Sam. Football in the morning. "DAAAAAAD!" He's got a point.
Nintendo is smart to license out their IP. The K'Nex product is terrible, but there are much lower expectations.
I would imagine that a Nintendo/Lego licensing agreement would probably be akin to the Scooby-Doo or Angry Birds line. Sell a bunch on a short run, and hope they do all of the relevant characters.
Oh, to dream...
Noooooooo, Legopants, nooooooo!!!
This may take some time...
Well, it's been sitting on my shelf for about 3½ years, so it's about time I got stuck in :-)
The fruits of this afternoon's labours. Zillions of fiddly thumb-destroying wedges, but I'm enjoying it so far :-)
Got to take a break now though coz we're off to the flicks to see Fantastic Beasts, dubbed into German unfortunately :-S
I am picturing @Legopants doing the Crocodile Dundee "that's not a knife" scene :-)
