First modular building! :-)
Wife enjoyed trying to spot the CMFs I collected and framed weeks ago!
That said I really like all the licences Duplo sets that are around, I buy some for figures/animals and give all the bricks to my son, so it feels like double prizes!
Think they were left over from a promotion (noticed a kids quiz sheet behind the tilll
Also they had this cool little shelf display....
The first of many, I expect..... :) :) :)
Still no sign of #30527 nor #30529, but I'm hoping they pop up soon. I totally forgot to preorder the damned game though, so I think #30620 is a pass for me. I already have a pile of those little Star guys though (with yet more to come with the wave 2 sets), so I can deal without it.
No luck for me on that end, all I found was master-building metalbeard. Kind of wish I could afford two or more for some of those alt builds. Looked pretty neat actually.
I honestly think it makes a decent parts pack, I mean there's a nice selection of robot arms and tooth/spike elements, plus that head piece MB uses for his metalbeard looks like it has some nice uses and this is the cheapest set to get it in.
Not being petty, just following the rules. :)
It coincides with Spring Time apparently. We typically see Polybags up North once or twice a year in large denominations from my past experiences. Usually through TRU Canada, but Wal-Mart has FINALLY been picking up the slack. I got a total of 10 Polybags from them this week alone, the Minecraft one, two of the three Ninjago Legacy based ones, two City sets with an extra of the Sky Police One because why not? The Creator Race Car and Pelican polys, MetalBeard's Mini Master-Building set, Emma's Bumper Cars and one of the random Town Rescue DUPLO polys, they sent me the one with the bird in it when I'd prefer to have the Policewoman, but it was via Wal-Mart.ca and I didn't see any DUPLO polybags at the one physical store I checked.
Compared to TRU the only Polybag I found there was the very impressive LEGO Friends Tulips bag hanging around.
It is so hard to get Polybags in Canada on a regular basis, if you don't find them within certain times of the year you are fresh out of luck in getting any of them.
(I suppose it's always Human Season for moose, as well.)
Thank you good sir, now I'm hearing two anthropomorphic characters arguing...
*Eh, you know the rest...*
I did pre-order the game from EB Games but they told me they did not receive their shipment of polybags. I'm supposed to check back this week.
That would piss me right off. I've only a passing interest in the game itself. The only appeal was the poly promo. I hope they sort it for you. :/
We had 378 convention attendees and approximately 8,000 public visitors to the expo. Representatives from Bricklink, the Brothers Brick, and Beyond the Brick where there, but best of all we had three people from the LEGO Group in attendance! Stuart Harris, who is in charge of all the LEGO builds (both the builds from TLG and the MOCs showcased there), Jan Beyer from the AFOL Engagement Team, and Nico Vas senior designer on Ninjago and TLM2 sets! They were truly great to meet and talk to. The presentations from Stuart about the LEGO House and Nico about the design process behind Queen Watevra were absolutely spectacular.
There were about 900 MOCs on display which by and large absolutely blew me away! I will try to post some photos soon.
A really wonderful weekend and I absolutely cannot wait to go back again!
Makes me wonder who accepts these returns!!
