I've been bagging up some of the smaller sets, but I won't be taking apart my modulars unless I'm moving house and/or migrating. The last time I did, and rebuilt them, I realised I was missing several pieces (presumably lost somewhere between NZ and Malaysia while moving) and it was a challenge trying to find replacements for the more uncommon pieces.
Kon Mari just asks the question, does this `thing` bring you any joy (not necessarily directly, but for example, someone above mentioned bread knifes. The bread knife might not bring you joy but actually eating bread does and without the knife you cannot cut the bread, and eat it so you would miss out on this joy).
For the clothes, for example, which things do you like and wear all of the time, which things did you forgot about because you had so much stuff and never really got to see that T-shirt because it was buried in a pile of others. Whilst I don`t go along with the `thanking` everything you get rid of and other methods that she uses, the simple principle is pretty good (not rocket Science as well, and I appreciate for most people its pretty obvious, but sometimes you need an excuse to do this sort of thing).
For me, my take home message from all of her methods is: lets apply this to Lego for example, look at all of your Lego sets and see which ones you actually like, which ones bring you joy to look at, or sparks great memories of the build experience. Get rid of the ones that you don`t particularly like (and may be you bought because it was 50% off - I buy a lot of sets just because they were cheap!). The best thing that I have found with this method is that you can rediscover Lego that you `forgot` about because you have so much or brings you more joy than the ones you have on display in a limited space. I`ve also had regrets selling stuff in the past, so for a number of things, I store things away and I regularly go back to them to have a think about them. But for now, I`ve had a good clear-out, I`ve put a pile of things to build and decide only then whether they bring me joy. Sometimes I just want to enjoy the build experience and the model afterwards its not so satisfying.
I feel their needs to be a lego having to sell my stuff support group.
Currently fondling :-) Dunno whether it's been mentioned elsewhere on the Forum, but the left-hand box compartment contains a full set of minifigs. Let's see if the middle and right-hand compartments do too...
(Kidding. Maybe. Whatcha got to sell?)
I can confirm that the middle compartment also contains a full set.
Also, the minifigs in the left-hand and middle compartments have been packed in the same order - that's probably been mentioned too ;-D
Now for the 3rd and final compartment...
The order of minifigs was the same in all three compartments (from front to rear):
1) Candy Rapper
2) Flashback Lucy
3) Gone Golfin' President Business
5) Tin Man
6) Cowardly Lion
7) Dorothy Gale & Toto
8) Vest Friend Rex
9) Apocalypse Benny
10) Sherry Scratchen-Post & Scarfield
12) Apocalypse Abe
13) Watermelon Dude
14) Giraffe Guy
15) Crayon Girl
16) Swamp Creature
17) Battle-Ready Lucy
18) Awesome Remix Emmet
19) Kitty Pop
20) Hula Lula
TLG & WB need to go with a different distributor, one that gets when a movie gets cinematic release in Feb everywhere else, you can't release it here at the end of March & expect it to do much of anything.
Mwah haa haa...
Are we the Lego Selling Support Group? F**k Off. We are the Selling Lego Support Group.
Do you know where I can find the lego Selling Support Group?
Yeah he is over there. Quitter!
I am having to clear out a lot of my old star wars sets if I have a better later version or where I have double of stuff because I planned to build a fleet. Needs must if I want to get more stuff in the future sadly.
Bricks and Pieces order arrived.
Oh yeah, your eyes will probably do the same from what I've heard.
My status? I bought a used lot of Friends Lego for the girls. It is mostly washed by now apart from the stickered pieces. My dilemma is the stickers all look like they've been applied by a very young child ... or reasonably drunk adult. I know we will build these sets and in a month they will be taken apart again. I'm so tempted to just bricklink the sticker sheets and reapply them all but it seems like such a waste for a months worth of play. I think the sets will seem incomplete without them though.
These are my DC and Star Wars BHs. Captain America is on a sabbatical leave from Marvel.
Manu Code: 51S8
TWO spares which were Sherry-Scratchen Post and Scarecrow.
Missing Benny and Hula Lula. Not bad at all with staff discount on some.
But I successfully squished and found exactly the ones I wanted! So proud of myself... my fingers are sore...
So not a completely wasted day. :)
Wonder if I could persuade the wife that we should holiday in San Francisco and Shanghai so I could add those to my collection too!
