Yes im extremely indescisive. Sorry I can't make these decisions like a normal human
I headed straight to Toys R Us stand to see what deals were available since from experience queuing is horrendous later in the day! And as is normal at BRICKLIVE, Toys R Us was giving away freebies left right and centre! After using a £5 voucher, the total for my haul below was a reasonable £51.97.
I then renewed my annual subscription to BLOCKS magazine (£54.88) getting a free magazine plus a couple of minifig packets thrown in. They have just released an exclusive Brick Wife minifig which I had to pay for as an extra (£7.99) - but totally worth it! :)
- #75184 Star Wars Advent Calendar for £24.99
- #60154 Bus Station for £31.98 (20% discount)
- #5004939 The LEGO Batman Movie Minifigure Collection free with any £55 spend
- #40268 R3-M3 free with £15 Stars Wars spend
- #30355 Jungle ATV free with £15 City spend
- #30478 Santa Claus free with any spend for VIP attendees
- #5004934 Christmas Ornament free with any £25 spend
- plus 5 packs of Toys R Us lego trading cards which I promptly gave away!
I also picked up a set of printed tiles for last year's BLOCKS magazines (£13.99).
Later I ordered myself a custom minifig head (£22.50) from: https://funky3dfaces.com/
I will have to wait a few weeks to see how that turns out! :)
And finally, after much careful thought and reflection... I picked up a Donald Trump minifig (£10) from: https://minifigures.com/
God knows why!! :D
The 15% discount code which got obscured in the photo below might just be BRICKME15! :)
75174 Star Wars - Desert Skiff Escape
Now I just have to find time to build it.
Also have wanted AS for awhile. A lot less expensive and it was going to make me current on the modulars. I love building those too and it fits in better with my overall collection than a big gray ball. Tough decision for me, but went with the AS. There will be time to grab the DS in the future.
Brick Bank was more than big enough for me, and Assembly Square and the new Millennium Falcon are bigger. Besides sticker shock, that large a build can get tedious for me.
I didn't use any on AS, but seems like you can trap yourself into not spending these things.
Waiting for The Carousel to be in stock in a certain store before the spending starts.
I know the CP Brickhead got a lot of flack when it was revealed, but I really like it for some reason. It has a certain charm. Anyone agree with me?
Last night I picked up #10245 Winter Holiday Train, which I’ve wanted for ages, alongside #21312 Women of NASA and #75184 Star Wars Advent Calendar. Got the free #40222 24-in-1 Christmas Builds and the guy even chucked in the #40178 VIP set I had thought I missed out on. Not bad at all but that’s my monthly allowance shot!
Sadly the two new Christmas mini sets had both sold out in the Leicester Square shop but got a voucher for free [email protected] delivery.
I've decided I'll definitely get the new Star Wars ones. I agree with @SirBrickalotOfLego, I like CP as well and think there is something fun and unique about the design.
Had been told by my "local" Lego Store that they might get a delivery of #75192 MF today. Called them early in the morning and was told they indeed got in a batch, and that I could reserve one for pickup today.
Also bought some small seasonal sets and #21312 Women of NASA, filled a PaB cup, and got various freebies.
They were out of #40263 Christmas Town Square, so will need to pick that up in a next visit/order from [email protected]
bought the U-wing for 48€ (44% off) and extreme adventure for 84€ (42% off, 3.5 cents per piece!)
Be careful. Sometimes I think that only to jump on the next deal
I guess I should feel honored there is such a thing as a "@stlux scale of buying Lego" ;)
I'd say you didn't brake the scale, but are at the high end. It still all seems to comfortably(ish) fit in a car. To break the scale you'd have to go all out like @SumoLego here :)
@SumoLego is more of 50-60 items 3x per year.
And this is assuming either figure is even remotely accurate, as I haven't thought to count the actual number of boxes.
(Yes, I referred to myself in the third person. I am a pretentious a-hole.)
