After contemplating my options I drove to the older TRU across town where they had all the older 3-in-1 sets a few weeks ago and got one rather battered but still intact #31031.
This was actually what I was going to do on Wednesday but there was street flooding in the same area as the store so I ordered online. Got the order in 2 days and then discovered they sent the wrong item. As luck would have it, I received a $5 Rewards coupon this morning.
i am so getting that movie set. as soon as it sub £40 and i have the cash.
(it was sub £35 but i add £5 for the awesome of the movie.)
@omnium sometimes LEGO designers use odd color pieces that end up hidden as a guide when building. I heard that about Architecture, particularly square-ish buildings, but maybe it's what's going on here.
@snowhitie my #41122 Adventure Camp Tree House came with a major part damaged, I built as far as I could without it, assembled some of the other bits, and figured out how to connect them once TLG got me the replacement. Kind of like that?
I'll try to save others from Googling @Salamalex 's post. :) Red Arrows is the RAF display team, https://ideas.lego.com/projects/164965 is an Ideas project based on their planes. cool to have a design focused on one color, and there would be a market for multiples. Apparently people can sign up for Ideas with the same username/password as Shop.
I used a different brick for stability while building (it was on the foundation), when the missing piece arrived I put the whole thing on a table with 1/3 sticking out (scary). Then I lied down under it (sort of like a car-mechanic), peeled of the baseplate and changed the bricks over. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
Thanks. Yes, I understand that idea. I know some people don't like it too. But the red flick fires really stood out as unusual in this case. I just wonder if the designers occasionally decide that they want to use a different colour for clarity, so also decide to use a rare part on purpose. I know I would.
We rewatched the 1984 original a couple days later and despite the shonky 80s CGI, its miles better. I remember seeing it in the cinema when it came out, the remake lacked the story telling and creation of the group in any depth.
@KingAlanI - you are quite right and thanks - it was rather lincolncentric for it not to occur to me that people wouldn't automatically know who they were. I've been lucky enough to see the display team several times because they practise above my route home from school. As a consequence I've also been to their displays so I could see them without fear of causing an accident!
I do like the model but would probably want more than one to display them in formation and for that, I do not have the room.
some of them comments i understand.
others. like WTF?
1st of all. the new one was giving nod's of yes we not a new idea there was a movie before us we are a Reboot. from start to finish. or as you like to put it.
here is how i view this movie.
in this universe in the late 1980's, the original teem never formed. and when on to do normal job's never thinking about ghost's. (aka cameos)
also the rules that govern over ghost's ability to manifest in the living world in this universe are easy to see there not 100% the same as it was in the universe for the original movie.
it is plain to see that in the original movie universe, something happened in the long ago past to weekend the wall's from the world of the dead and the world of the living.
in the new movie universe this event did not take place, and this event is plain to see as the point that the 2 movie universe's split.
this is why the original teem never formed. the butterfly effect.
the similar dialogue, is mostly down to the same technology being used.
the other similar dialogue, and cameos of the original teem, is a nod of thanks to the original movie.
the plot. is not like any of the other ghostbusters movies.
in the other movies the main bad guy was a Ghost who was LONG dead.
if you not seen the movie Dont read the Spoiler.
start, (1 ghost) middle (more ghosts) Latter, (ghost are on a mass attack) End (big fight with super sized Ghost), i know this going in to the movie. i was expecting this to happen. if you when in to the movie thinking that a reboot, movie was not going to be quite alot like the old one. then shame on you.
i was quite happy with how the movie played out. i when in expecting a carbon copy of the 1st movie with a gender swap. this is not what i got. and i am pleased with the out come.
but this is the real world. you will never please everyone, there will always be someone who hates what you did. and someone who loves what you did.
and just to keep this lego themed.
the #75828 ghostbuester set is now sub £40, and i dont have the cash. rats...
Obviously not mine, but phenomenal idea. According to his website, he bought two 70900 Jokers Baloon Escape sets, but with the extra pieces, he made Disney Baloons! Fantastic! Especially great with the Disney Castle, or a Disneyland MOC. Here's the link:
That is a total bummer dude. Take care, get your knee fixed, and have a speedy recovery.
I am very happy because today I have resumed kick-boxing training again. I injured myself back at the start of December (doing kick-boxing), and I have not been able to do any exercising for well over a month and a half. After several visits to the doctor, more painkillers than I have ever taken before in my entire life, fever, a leg that resembled that of an elephant, antibiotics for weeks, and a couple of visits to the emergency room at the hospital where they finally, after I insisted, cut my leg open a month ago to drain an abscess on my shin that would not go away, and thought it necessary to cut out a piece of skin the size of my thumb while doing so, I was relieved the inflammation and the worst of the pain was gone. I still have a nasty open wound on my shin, so I cannot kick or block with one of my legs. It seems to take forever for the skin to grow back, but it is already much better. Hence I decided to go to class at the gym again.
My Lego status today is sort of a 'Despicable Me; fluffy unicorn overload' after having built: #41073 (damn it, it won't turn into a hyperlink!)
Those minidolls are too cute! And of course those hairpieces are just epic!
And what do those hairpieces look like on minifigs?!?!
HA! It's so fluffy I'm gonna die!
Also finished the number 2 bags of Brick Bank and dusted that
Dusted and stored some of my display. the big #10697 boxes are useful for holding baggies of sets I put away.
Suffice to say, I didn't even start clearing space in my LEGO room yesterday.
It used to have a decent stock of Lego. As it was all at retail price, I rarely shopped there; deals or GWP online were always more attractive. I suspect that may have been a major factor in it's demise.
I wonder if there is much real opportunity for such bricks-and-mortar stores these days?
Fun in the park is around 30.99 and would be fine but I am not convinced at that price #legoproblems
I am a like whore.
My current status: liking a like whore
@ all ladies and gents here!
What happened to @Pitfall69 ??? This guy virtually lived here 24/7
Hope he is OK!
And does anyone know what happened to @legomatt ???
He has this wonderful sense of humour. FYI he is this guy with the Kate bush picture as his avatar. Very witty much appreciated BS-member IMO!
He last commented in August 2016, apparently he still visits the forum as I just checked his profile.
Anyway, I hope he is well.
Thanks, I forgot you once started a Missing In Action thread.
Anyway I hope they (and all others too) are doing well, whatever they are doing.
Perhaps it is a bit redundant to post it again on your topic!? If either of them happens to login, they should see a notification that they got mentioned by someone here.
Loved that Sofia Coppola film. So who was first, you or Sofia?! Or perhaps you thought of this fabulous name without ever thinking or perhaps even being aware of that movie?!
I am a translator. And sometimes I feel like I'm speaking a different language to those around me...
I'm liking a member who likes a like whore, but not liking the like whore themselves. Not sure where that leaves me, but I like it!
For some bizarre reason, I thought @TheBigLegoski was referring to the name of the MIA thread, and I was thinking "I don't remember Sophia Coppola being involved in a Chuck Norris film?" and then I realised you were both talking about your member name for the forum! It's been a long day (and not yet finished).
For the record, I knew of the saying long before Bill Murray came along, so I never associate it with the film. :-)
