    As it's a keychain, @SumoLego will move heaven and earth to obtain 20, and then share with the rest of the forum once he realizes he only needs 10?

    Today was a good day. Picked up Royal Talon Fighter Attack from TRU Canada, got a free Imperial AT-Hauler Polybag, found two sealed cases of HP on the shelf, opened one and got Percival Graves.

    Then I helped out a grandmother locate the Yoda's Hut set and her daughter pick up some Spinners from Ninjago. Whoever is getting those gifts is going to be thrilled.

    No time for saving up until October 12th so I can get the Bricktober set that week, find some way to spend 75$ for three consecutive weeks and get JW, MS and HP Offerings from TRU Canada.

    This weekend went over 250 sets by buying Ninjago City and Ship in a bottle.
    Just over 163k pieces from sets only.

    Yesterday, I added exhausts to my latest MOC: Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta:



    I also started a new MOC but I need to order more dark green parts before continuing.

    Treated myself to the SW advent calendar and got a free Solo mudtrooper poly. Should sit nicely with the other stand minifigures
    Picked up a Scarif trooper one as well to get it over the £30 spend if anyone needs one.

    @SithLord196 My sister similarly spent fifteen minutes in a supermarket aisle looking for Newt for me. Not that he's particularly rare, just that she really likes that character and wanted me to have him. Thanks, sis!

    Woohoo, I'm a fan of the number 9, so I really like the look of this, 4 in a row! Guess I need to throw a 10k party soon too :)
    PS I keep having problems with the spacing in the alinea's I'm sorry. It's only on this forum so I'm not sure how I can solve it. Doesn't seem to affect everyone. If I remember in time I can 'edit' and remove the spacing but it seems like I'm not always enough 'on the ball'.
    Only 9000 visits though? Amatuer! ;-)

    How do I "really, really like" your post? Do you consider it a "win" because he's staying in bed and quiet?

    I only created my account about a year after first reading the forum so that I could share my experiences on the Legoland Windsor thread! Don't regret it though as I've enjoyed posting pics of my builds recently!

    Finally reached that stage in my LEGO life where I’m bagging up stuff to free up space for for new stuff! It’s taken four years and a few hundred sets and I do plan for it to see the light of day at some mythical point in the future but will we ever

    I'm sure that's something those forum members further down the rabbit hole than I am (Hi!) can relate to.

    Sorted the 3 pab cups I got earlier, along with a Solo polybag the LEGO Store employ threw in. She's really nice and always throws in something when I go in.

    @Kerre Dunno about quotes on BL since I haven't tried, though I did get a reply asking which item I wanted a picture of, and that was five days ago. Still nothing lolz

    Also is it just me or are the icons of who's liking people's post gone now? All I see are the number of likes.

    Debating which to get in order to get the Han Solo mudtrooper: #75220 Sandcrawler, #75221 Imperial Landing Craft, or #75230 Porg. Sandcrawler is a little more money than I should spend this week; I really like the Porg; but I gotta quote The LEGO Movie's Benny: "spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP!!!"

    Yeah, of those choices I'd go landing craft.

    @Kerre There was nothing else you could post a picture of instead of K3? ;)

    For the non-Dutch speakers: K3 is a bubblegum pop girl band with the sole aim of selling merchandise to small kids. But it's a great mosaic and worth seeing in the flesh/brick :)

    @stlux I found it very striking. And since @sid3windr knows his Flemish singers...

    Also encountered this lady as part of a lovely amusement park setup:

    I get the sense I would need to be high on K2, or suffering the effects of altitude sickness on K2 to enjoy K3?

    The kids referred to it as 'Tootsie Roll' hair.  Atleast before poop hair hit the airwaves...

    Kicked the LEGO habit - by reactivating my Magic the Gathering habit - about as good for my available time and money.
    Haven't forgotten the brick, Target had a $10 giftcard on a $50 purchase. I hadn't researched the Harry Potter CMFs in detail (an example of my lower level interest) but this seemed like a good enough deal to buy random bags. I bought #40358 the first time I saw it - a cute set. a bit pricey but OK with the deal for an exclusive and has lots of figs and special parts for a small set

    Went to the Great Western Brickshow today. Amazing models on display. Played the Fairybricks tombola and won a polybag and minifig. Saw @LostInTranslation and her cool goodgirl/bad girl bedrooms. Saw @Huw and his awesome GBC. Was wowed by Brick to the Past display. And generally enjoyed the day. I thought again the display numbers were down but the quality up.
    Have a few pics from today.



    The Monty Python montage by the entrance was hilarious.


    @Speedman29 - Fab photos! :-) Looking forward to today's visit :-))
