"Guys, I'm not so sure Phantom Manor is a very good place to go Trick or Treating..."
Happy Halloween everyone!
Don't forget that this evening is also the deadline for the Secret Santa, so if you haven't applied - get your ducks in a row!
Thus far I've identified parts from 51 unique sets, and that's only after digging through the top 3" of the bin. Taking the low end number from Bricklink for sales in the last 6 months, the value (if those sets are complete) is $1200. I don't plan on selling many of the; just enough to recoup my costs so my wife can't hold spending that extra $50 over my head...
Best finds so far: #10026 (UCS Naboo Star Fighter - Looks to be 100% there), #9465 (The Zombies), #7666 (Hoth Rebel base), #3182 (Airport), #75014 (Battle of Hoth), and #924 (Space Cruiser).
I see we've staggered our shows this year, ours is this weekend so I'd better go back to building.
This. This is what I did just now. Also, since this was on clearance, I got this today.
So here's my Brickset status:

No roof because a minifigure wouldn’t fit with the roof on.
There is too much information in one thread here. I can't cope. Please link to your comments from the other threads where such things are discussed. I need to have a lie down now. :-)
Wondering whether I should fill in the "survey" or not and thought, "why not, if nobody is interested, they don't have to read it", so here goes, with bonus question from a recent thread:
Just for you:
Everything is @Huw's fault. :-)
At least it's not in ALL CAPS BOLD, WITH ITALIC THROWN IN FOR GOOD MEASURE!
Good luck in the over 30 thread, it's like 4chan in there...
Does that mean I should regret buying one off you? Well I don't, so there! :-)
What LEGO Themes do you collect? Star Wars, Marvel Super Heroes, DC Super Heroes, Friends, DC Super Hero Girls, Nexo Knights, City, LEGO Movie related sets(Batman, Ninjago, TLM), Disney, Dimensions, Ghostbusters, Ideas, Polybags (Creator and the like), anything that grabs my fancy on clearance for potential unique review or parts fodder.
How big is your LEGO collection? 1189 Sets, 1793 Minifigures, 93,518 pieces.
What's your favorite Minifigure? I do not typically pick favorites, however I must admit Daphne Blake is fairly high on the list of awesome Minifigures in my collection.
What's your favorite Set? Jabba's Palace from 2012 is a strong contender, however I'd have to say my absolute favorite has to be the DC Super Heroes Arkham Asylum.
What's your latest LEGO Purchase? The LEGO Batman Movie The Essential Collection.
How do you display your collection? Rotationally, new sets are on display until reviewed on Brickset, older sets are kept in storage, certain large sets are permanently on the limited shelf space I have available, such as Arkham Asylum, Avengers Tower, TFA Millennium Falcon and other sets which I do not wish to disassemble for storing in bins and the like.
How do you dust your collection? I do not, I dust the shelves, but I just can't afford any pressurized air containers or the like to keep the dust off... not to mention the shelf is a bit high, making it impractical to climb up and dust every so often. (Have to keep the cat from damaging anything.)
How do you store your spare parts? Ziplock freezer bags, recently have begun getting small Dollar Store Office Storage drawers for storage options, still need to get another one for all the spare plates, studs, accessories and stuff that come in every LEGO set.
What else do you collect? Transformers, Star Wars, Mega Bloks/Construx, Marvel Legends, S.H. Figurarts, Video Games, Books (Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, Star Trek and Star Wars, etc, etc...), Movies, Assorted Miscellaneous Figure lines which interest me.
What are you reading right now? The Soulforge, Realms of Infamy and Star Trek Death Count. (I've gotten fairly behind in my reading list and so I've taken to handling three paperbacks at once, alternating between one or the other until finished and then starting another book. As an avid reader and book collector I regularly shop at the local Children's Hospital Book Sales Drive, and the books are so cheap I have... ahem... Shall we say accumulated a rather large backlog of books to read.)
What set do you regret buying? Dol Guldur, the large set. It may be part of The Hobbit film series and the set is passable, however I have long desired a decently sized fortress and Dol Guldur just did not deliver, not the way Helm Deep did at least. *SIGH* As a completionist of The Hobbit Theme I had to buy it eventually, but as a LEGO Collector, it is arguably the weakest set I ever bought and the thing wasn't even discounted that heavily when I finally did pull the trigger.
You collect unexploded bombs??? Yep, perfectly safe. Carry on.
Apart from a Brickset minifig, this is only the 2nd custom print fig in my collection. Not really interested in custom figs, but couldn't resist this decal Zombie Kitty from a UK custom printer...
So, it's not THAT dangerous...
Do not mess with ex-special forces solider Sensei Wu. He’s tired of Garmadon’s antics.
I am also very tempted to give Wu a fast car or make rapper Sensei Wu.
Haha, I'm overwhelmed by all the bold text too, so many posts to scroll through!
Back to topic, yesterday went to a local TRU to check out the Gamadon Shark, but didn't get it. Now I've got second thought so later tonight after work will probably drop by again to get it.
Have sold this as good news to my wife, as now she doesn't have to figure out anymore what to get me for my birthday later this month...
In all the excitement I forgot to ask them whether they also received those little yellow wheels to slap on the shipping box. Better call them back to ask, or figure out a different way to get the MF to my car...
