Decided I wasn't going to go for CMF S17.... then dropped in to Smyths on the way home and got four of them!
Grabbed #76059 Doc Ock's Tentacle Trap 48% off @ my local Target store (the last one).
Then, at TRU, (finally) found CMF Series 17; grabbed 10 at random and got:
- Professional Surfer
- Circus Strong Man (x2)
- Roman Gladiator
- Battle Dwarf
- Retro Spaceman
I find the Highwayman pretty cool; I will try to get a few extras. Need more Connoisseur for the dog. Love the Retro Spaceman and the Veterinarian (bunny!). Feel like a few extra Roman Gladiator are in order for an "army". The Yuppie's cellphone 1x1 parts should be useful for MOCing and the minifigure for some Miami Vice vignettes ;-)
Loot from a day of shopping in Oberhausen. Lego-related only, I didn't include the Dunkin Donuts box, the Double Whopper, the Lindt chocolates, the pink bamboo coffee mug and the pink fluffy unicorn :D
Now to get on [email protected] to pick sets to be eligible for the R2 giveaway and free shipping.
Best month ever, can't stop smiling and am itching to get building tomorrow
Even as a LEGO and SW fan I haven't gotten too far into LEGO SW since the end of my dark ages so I might have the same problem. This month I had a similar problem in picking out $20 of Friends for the tic tac toe set.
By the way, as a non-European, but as a Mexican-American...Dunkin Donuts and a Double Whopper? I'm sure there are better food options...are there??
I just realized us Americans are spoiled with junk food.
My UCS Snowspeeder has just arrived safely. It feels surprisingly heavy, I'm looking forward to building it this weekend :-)
I wonder how the Dunkin Dounts there compares to the U.S.?
So I called them, luckily they had a few left. I picked one up, and also the other items that had been in my cart (#853676 Nexo Knights Accessory Set and #853677 Stone Monsters Accessory Set) in fear that those would sell out.
I was pretty surprised it was already selling out, the other accessory sets are generally on there for at least a year.
I have a pretty strict LEGO budget, I hadn't planned on getting these until the end of June, so I had to bump them to the top and push my budget by a week.
I spent only 20 minutes in Wijnegem Shopping center:
Something Star Wars-y turned out to be the Slave I I had my eyes on since I saw its beauty in the flesh. Wijnegem Store still had plenty of Snowspeeders but I'll wait until these are eligible for a discount.
I just called regarding #853687 and they only had 10 left in the warehouse. I ordered two, so there are eight more for anyone who wants one at the last moment.
I am definitely a novice when it comes to figuring out sets based on just a few parts, but I recognized these fairly quickly.
Now to the task of sorting, which seems like a fun treasure hunt since I have never done it before, but I think it will get fairly old as I work on this off and on for the next couple of months. I'm not sure how @TheMaker37 has done it with his metric ton purchases that I have drooled over in the last year.
Because I bought them from the only person in the world that I would buy them from!!
BL Recycled Brick and Janet OBrien, both charge exact postage and nothing extra, managable minimum buy, quick invoicing

Also stopped at TRU and picked up a Michonne statuette from The Walking Dead that was on clearance + 20% off clearance coupon + 10% off for credit card, which will be a gift for my mom's birthday. While there, I picked up 5 CMFs: 2 rocket boys, 1 highwayman, 1 yuppie, and 1 corn cob guy.
Arrgh! You have a Minecon Steve! You lucky whatnot! ;-)
May I ask how you got hold of one and how much is cost you?
My main recent purchase, however, was a BNIB #10244 Fairground Mixer, which I was kicking myself not to have bought before it went EoL, but I got a good deal on it off eBay, only paying a very little above RRP and with free P&P, so I'm very happy indeed!
I'm about half-way through building it, having just started the flat-bed trailer.
My final purchase was not something I specifically needed but, again off eBay, I picked up a nearly-new-looking #886 Space Buggy. The space logo on the minifig looks absolutely mint, as do the parts. It also came with the box and instructions, both looking in awesome condition, so I'm very excited to get it! :-)
It was a used set which I've deep cleaned since the photo that i gave to @Huw was taken. Huw, I could give you a dust-free photo for brickset if you're interested? Anyway, Steve is the pride of my extensive Minecraft collection and I won't be parting with it! :D
The #LESTER shown above is also a reproduction. However, I do have a real LESTER, number 229, but it won't be leaving it's packaging anytime soon! And I can't tell the difference even with a magnifying glass between my reproduction LESTER and the real thing!
On the other hand, in the background, #COMCON035 The Collector is a cheap and nasty (very poor quality) chinese copy! :(
Please do and thanks! :-)
Announcement of the carousel, made me do silly things.
Quite understandable! :-)
Now that I've got both the Ferris Wheel and Fairground Mixer, I'm going to *have to* get the new Carousel... Ah well... ;-)
The few things on the right with #30449 Milano bought at my local LEGO store for the aforementioned promo.
The loot on the left is from my local TRU 40% sale (polybags not on sale; $3.99 ea.). My second copy of #75096 Sith Infiltrator; could not pass the 50% off RRP.
Well, I already had the Fairground mixer. Now I`ll just have to get all of them :(.
Need to be strong and not get sucked into any more new themes/subthemes. Somehow I get into at least 1 new theme every year.
Last christmass (mainly due to crazy discounts) got me into Ninjago. Now I ended up getting all of the big sets from the past 2 years, including Airjitzu temple, City of stiix, Final flight of destiny bounty, a bunch of dragons, etc. And I`ll just have to get the big ship and the new temple from the Ninjago movie sets (at least).
Some Smyths have the new Star Wars sets on the shelves early.
