    It's not the same without Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker. And really poor special effects :-)

    Should keep you busy for 3 or 4 hours :-)
    Very enjoyable build :-)  I reckon I should be finished in an hour or so.

    @snowhitie Nice, "rechtstreeks aan de buren". Not sure how rechtstreeks it is when you're involving the neighbours... or is it an option to tell bpost to deliver to the neighbours?

    Mine was delivered last saturday (Amazon UK, physically coming from Amazon IT) and was totally squashed due to poor packaging. Got me a 20% refund so I'm OK with it, in this case the boxes were expendable ;)

    The feeling of relief plus slight trepidation when you hit the "Mark All Viewed" button. Relief that you've finally caught up on all the posts you were following/interested in/commenting on/laughing at/etc (because Easter was mega-busy) and trepidation that you might miss a post on a thread because it got posted just before you hit the button - what if it's the last post in the thread? It's gone forever now! Like tears in rain...

    It always seems like that to be honest. It's maybe it feels like that because we're an impatient lot

    Thanks!

    I am not sure what my boss have planned, or even if she has a concrete plan for the sets :-)

    So far it looks like it's going to be an after-event activity where everybody get to pick one set and then we just go to our break area and build the sets together/at-the-same-time.

    I doubt it will go "wrong", as it is just something different to do, and even if somebody does not care about LEGO, they probably have a kid in their life to give the set to.

    I do not have direct reports anymore (Yay!!!), but if I did, I would probably get a modular building set and team them up to build the different floors.

    Maybe I should look into LEGO Serious Play in case people like the use of LEGO at the event ;-) After all, I work at the technical training department of the company and used to be an instructor for many years (I still teach the occasional one-off when needed).

    Having several Eureka moments when I actually discover which connectors or axle parts to remove whilst disassembling #42053 so I can build the 'B' model.
    Never seem to remember enough about how the solid mass of beams and bricks went together to make it easy. 
    I blame old age myself.

    I have not purchased any Lego products in the last few months due to the fact I am saving my money for a new airsoft loadout. I am going to get the Spider-man Homecoming sets as soon as they are released.

    You're right. And what's that huge round thing in the back corner?
    And I know this can't be right, but it looks like that jar says "Donations for Poops."

    It's a 'Dora the Explorer' folding playhouse.  That I haven't figured out how to fold back into the bag it came with.
