@LittleLori - don't be intimidated! It's a good site. I felt similarly to you a few years ago, but after a couple of purchases it's actually pretty easy and since the revamp looks a lot better too. It'll never be as simple as Amazon, because of the nature of the site, but it's trustworthy and the sellers are genuine for the vast majority. Just check the feedback ratings:
I've got a healthy pile of those purchases!
I also really messed up with a couple of recent orders, as I was gathering the parts for a couple of LoTR MOCs, The Balrog Battle and The Prancing Pony, from Build Better Bricks and I thought I'd also grab the parts to build the #COMCON033-1 Micro Scale Bag End at the same time. Somehow, I've ended up with enough parts to nearly build two micro Bag Ends!
And visit the vault in the basement:
Where you can take a trip back to your childhood, or hunt down these horrors:
I still have all my childhood sets, including the boxes. So I was mostly on the lookout for Scala/Belville/Galidor/etc. Morbid curiosity :)
Then on to this building where all the designers work. No pictures allowed. Sorry!
We got a brief to design a set within certain parameters. As nobody seemed interested to do something with minidolls, I of course had to do exactly that. Also wanted it to have moving parts, so I added some gears. Behold "Jousting in the park":
Which minidoll will win the game by being the first to hit the flag?!
(I spent so much time getting the mechanism to work I didn't have enough time anymore to beautify it. Probably also blew the allocated budget by including 2 horses and 3 minidolls.)
Built the Saturn V. Magnificent! Built the US Capital. Fun! Oh, and built a Stormtrooper too. Nicely posable.
Next up: Skylines and a Snow Speeder. Love Legos
1) I really haven't bought that much LEGO!
2) It wasn't :(
2) I can't remember what is being delivered.
3) No, I don't know who sent it.
4) Yes, I'll clean the basement.
5) No, I don't know how much stuff is down there.
6) Yes, another is coming tomorrow.
A renaissance fair Friends theme could be awesome. Friends/Elves crossover?
Guess who'll be cleaning his LEGO hoard this weekend?
Not pictured: a large shipping box going via post.
The nightmares are as vivid as ever!
So yes, it is indeed USD 37. (Or at least the Danish Krone equivalent)
I knew this before I ordered. What happens is that you get the coffee of your choice and a LEGO House mug (RRP DDK 90). The money goes to charity.
To improve my mood: #40199 Billund Airport!
(DDK 399/set for the first 3, DDK 899 after that.)
In the words of Doc Brown ^ "This damn thing doesn't work at all!".
So many Brickheadz. So many...
Hey stlux, great to meet you at the Inside Tour, and thanks for the bonus family photo!
When we got back, we started building while watching Lego Story and Lego Batman.
And a happy Memorial Day to those in the US!
2. A couple more (Crawler Crane & The Mine) to add to complete Gelksburg (my Lego City).
3. Buy some H2O2 to soak the whites.
