I also cut through a live electrical cable today which was quite the experience I must say. Scary, scary shit. Always make sure things are unplugged!
Oh and i sorted through my childhood boxes of misc lego pieces. Fun times. Now if only i could find that small box with all my lego zamor balls and lego flags and tents. Really don't know where it could be, problem with having lego in more than one place in recent times i guess.
Only lego set i feel i want right now is the new black manta one but damn it its only the completionist within me that wants it really (mind you i mixed a great lego ninjago skybound lighthouse deal, it got snatched from under me man). Oh yeah i also made the decision to avoid more lego star wars sets and most super hero related set as after my dark age i just brought everything and anything that appealed to me. Still don't think i will ever collect just a few themes though, would of done the same as i did even if i went back to the end of my dark age probably just maybe less sw and marvel. The underwater collection is going well though and i am almost ready to build up to biggish moc making.
On a somewhat related note man wuxia and xanxia gets no lego moc love. Gonna have to figure out some mocs for these great foreign novel masterpieces.
Final count 471 sets (419 different), 1308 minifigures (897 different)
All in all 2 years or so after the end of my dark age, my childhood savings are pretty sparse now and i probably spent more than i should of in the passion but i didn't just buy big lego sets that i have found i kinda get bored of so its a win in my book and i did want all the sets (just maybe not all at once :P). Got a lovely collection customised to my liking so thats the only thing that matters, now i just need to make my imagination a reality using all this lego. Though to be honest i think my inner child just wanted a big lego collection and the adult me wanted the options it brings with it so yeah...
Happy building everyone, don't drain those wallets too much lol (especially people in their early 20s like me, don't follow my example ha).
Alternatively i might just settle down on the sofa with a few beers and the remote
Those are the moments to do those LEGO tasks that make a bit of a mess, uninterrupted, before returning things to an orderly state so no-one will even notice that you made a mess in the first place.
Perhaps you'll even find something you forgot you had but one thing is for sure, future you will thank you for making a start on those ambitious plans. You could always put the tv on in the background and still have the beer! :o)
Finished the shelf plan. As if it will go this smoothly but one can hope. Found some rare sets so my buying hiatus broke before it even started... Still not gonna hit 100k bricks in terms of non loose bricks though, at 97,192 parts now though.
Gonna force myself to take that needed break for my wallet. Final numbers: 475 sets (422 different), 1315 minifigures (902 different)
By the way not flexing just what my autistic brain wants to post as it likes numbers, i would post it on the lego reddit but what a boring submission that would be and i moan in my head about boring submission like many so yeah not gonna be a hypocrite :P.
They also had a cool Toy Story display
It's where Donnie Yen lives.
I think it's on Jedha. Just look for Star Wars Daredevil.
Please. Elaborate. Tell us more. This is gold right here.
In other news, have any Australians ordered from [email protected] recently? I ordered a set Monday and it's going through Toll rather than the regular Australian Post. I wonder if Lego switched to it for faster deliveries, as the parcel seems to be getting here exceptionally fast.
