    Sounds like an easy gift for Jason Voorhees.  Or Dominik Hasek.
    When I think of something sharp and a hockey mask I think Clint Malarchuk!

    I sat through about 35 minutes of Aquaman.  Without any spoilers, I have come to the conclusion that DC filmmakers made some sort of deal with Dormammu.  In order for the Nolan Batman Trilogy to exist, we are now being punished with all of these terrible DC movies.  

    But there were frickin' sharks with frickin' lasers beans attached to their frickin' heads.

    All of a sudden a guy fighting murderbots on a flying city with a bow and arrow seems infinitely more plausible than whatever the hell was on the screen in Aquaman.

    Other stupidities, observations and curiosities:
    Pirates are still paid in gold coins.
    People afraid of the water don't reconsider locating to the Swiss Alps or living in a yurt in the Gurbantunggut Desert.
    The Atlanteans are essentially the Gungans from Episode 1.
    Michael Beach resembles a slightly younger Joe Morton, so I got really confused for a few minutes wondering why Cyborg's dad appeared in this film.

    I am now a lot more interested in seeing this while also convinced I made the right choice in never wanting to see it.

    Also - if you're a Halo fan - I'm pretty sure someone 'borrowed' some of the costume design ideas.

    And the Gate from Zion from Matrix 2 makes an appearance.  And Prince Eric's ship from The Little Mermaid.  (But no gadgets, gizmos, whozits, whatzits or thingamabobs.  Maybe they're in the extended cut.)  It might be Elsa and Anna's parents' ship, but one can never tell.

    ^ I agree with @Sumolego on his assessment of the movie and would add this to what I saw throughout the 2 hrs... “and these blast points. Too accurate for sand people. Only  imperial stormtroopers are so precise!”

    Bad news: fought threw the Boxing Day crowd only to be disappointed by no new sets and no decent sales.
    Good news: I just got #70657 Ninjago City Docks for $150 off online.

    Didn't bother heading out, Bricking Around tweeted all the links to all the sales (pretty disappointing, especially Myer & Target), ended up grabbing a couple of deals on Amazon, including #75220 for AU$125 (RRP is $200).

    Just Christmas and Boxing day, so all I've managed to build is the snowmobile from the City magazine. We're home all day tomorrow so will make a start on something from the present pile.

    I was like: "Whaaaaat? No!"

    I'm happy to see Hulk patrols the rooftops of another modular city.  But Thanos doesn't hit me as soccer/football fan.

    Thanos probably isn't a fan. He just thinks the pitch is too crowded and he's there to wipe out half of the players. That, or he's the referee.

    I need to get some photos but I've been spending a lot of my xmas break sorting my lego parts collection, still deciding how to do it but many trips to The Range, Hobbycraft etc. have resulted in hopefully enough to put it all in. Lots to sort from eBay and clean but the new bricks are tidying up nicely finally.

    So satisfying to get bricks sorted! Need to get some big sets built though now I have some time!

    I bet someone will amass an army of these classic astronauts in pink, yellow, and white. Too bad Benny still has that scratched up torso print, and cracked helmet mould. Though funny, Benny is not as suitable as a generic classic blue spaceman to get multiples of. But yes, this set is a total must have!
    I wish TLG would take back those classic knight visors in production which you can attach to these old style helmets found in sets #375 #383
    As a little kid I would always attach the two visors (in red and black) I had from the joust to a black and a red classic spaceman as well as rocket backpacks that were in some classic space sets such as   #6702

    ^I agree on Benny. Wish we could get a version of him all cleaned up. Sadly, I can’t find my old space stuff, which is a real shame. I got super nostalgic about when I saw the pictures of this set and knew it was a must have. I may also amass an army of these things I had planned to buy a few but I got the last one at Barnes & Noble today so one will do for now.

    I'm in the process of making my own city that I call -

     Pepsterville - https://vimeo.com/308635178 

    I'm in the process of making a lighter sidewalk for the mini figures to walk around in the city, plus I'm eventually going to be adding traffic lights and such to it.

    Can you have a laugh track over a time-lapse song montage?  Or am I watching the hackiest show in the history of the Universe?

    Wondering if I can work out which of this LEGO was destined for the club I intend to start at the Indian school I’m volunteering at for the next few months and which I brought out for me to practise my skills by building with a limited number of bricks.
