I was looking for these polybags/to sell them/to other men*
(*At cost/Rest are for personal use!)
And picked up the #71020 box for said men and me. And caught some EOL Ninjago and City sets trying to get away (Mwahaha!). Some 2018 Nexo Knights at 15% off. And collected my 15% off Falcon+Scarif Trooper freebie.
I also get the sense that this will be an expensive proposition...
I will be lucky if my wife allows there to be another anniversary..
After building it I was debating (with myself) whether to get the official set given I've already enjoyed the much more challenging building process of no instructions.
Fast forward to 2 days ago I've finally decided to get it, the free gifts of course do help a bit in my decision making. :-))
Ninjago City Docks is coming soon...
Also managed to put my inept bag feeling skills to use and get 2 additional dolphins from the TLBM CMF series 2. It was easy to dismiss all of the skinny bags, and I was sure at least one of them was correct. Now, what to do with the extra Batman in bathing suit pieces?
Two sets from the 2012 Dino theme #5887 Dino Defence HQ and #5885 Triceratops Trapper, and a vintage set that I'm missing from the 2001 Studios Jurassic World III theme #1371 Spinosaurus Attack which I had to order from Australia to get at an acceptable price. All sets are still sealed for now! :)
They'd run out if the little dog 3in1. But I'm happy with this lot. Some to build. Some to trade. All now nicked by Little Miss Speedman!
Finished collecting the Guiardians of the Galaxy Vol2 sets today. Missed out on the first film sets unfortunately but I plan to put these minifigures in a display case for the man cave!
If that had been the first iteration of the Milano, I would have absolutely adored it. But I would be lying if I said that it wasn't at least a little disappointing that they downsized the previous one, which was really great, for that set. I understand why, with the previous one not selling well and likely being deemed too expensive, but it was still sad to get a build that it was pretty much impossible to fit everyone inside on after the first movies.
Got myself some of roadplates... looking forward to get the city a bit more organised.
Still grumpy that TLG didn't give them to existing loyal VIP club members...
Saw this on offer at Smyths and couldn't resist. Not opening it until I've finished decorating my loft/Lego room, should give me enough motivation to finish it now!
Excited to get this. Only one seal at the bottom so the box can be opened without cutting the seal. If I get around to it I plan to digitize the instructions and maybe try bricklinking the parts to build one and leave this one in the box.
Drove 45min to get it, I guess that only makes sense if gas is free ;)
Oh, and while I was looking at minifigs looking for cas319, I ran across the blue glow in the dark octopus on the right. And of course how could I say no to a blue glow in the dark octopus? I have no idea what I'm going to do with it, but I'm sure it will find a home...
Looks like they had the flower set too, which makes me jealous since my local store apparently never got any, and I missed the half day or so they seem to have been available online :(
Update: The parts I had for Olivia's House and the small lamb set will just be going into my extra parts bins as there are too many parts missing, but the other sets are either complete or only missing a handful of things so I added those missing parts to Bricklink in case I ever find them at a store when I am purchasing other items. After going through these sets, I also determined that I had #21117 in there, as well as three of the figures from #10218. After I finish clearing this out, I will move onto another of my bulk buys that I had the time to purchase but not the time to go through.
unfortunately when I opened the top flap of the Amazon packaging I found this....
The outer packaging was undamaged so the Amazon Herbert who packed it must have seen it was damaged but still sent it anyway, I have reordered it and have to return this one, GRRRrrrrrr :(
I generally open LEGO boxes like a bear devouring honey. Or Garfield eating lasagne. I don't have time for seams, flaps or 'open here' instructions.
