Got enough shelf space cleared somewhere already?
Hey all you cool cats and kittens! Inspired by @itsmebookmum
But yesterday, while checking mail, I suddenly noticed a box of Lego. "Ha-ha, very funny", – I thought to myself – "someone left the empty box". I lifted it. "Wow, they really went a mile with it and placed something for the weight". I opened it. There were 2 tron bikes inside. "Probably Lepin or some other knockoff". I checked the markings. "[email protected]#t, it's a real thing, ok I'm getting you back home".
It's in pristine condition, even with spares. I've never seen something used being so intact (with the negative experience of buying secondhand lego). But washed it anyway.
Guess, someone's having a dark age.
Then, #71025 Series 19:
Quickly followed by #71026 DC Super Heroes:
And finally, my enthusiasm waning ever so slightly, #71027 Series 20:
that always happens to me on this forum from iOS... really annoying. Sometimes i just cannot be bothered to edit the, on my phone/iPad perfect, photo, sorry!
(I caught my 10 year-old daughter utilizing this strategy for Monopoly. We played a friendly game, and a few days later I'm suddenly doing high-level real estate negotiations with Leona Helmsley.)
'how do i beat my dad at monopoly'
My BnP order arrived yesterday, 100 2x2 dark grey tiles. Its amazing how quick a pavement can eat them up. I think thats over a 1000 I've bought over the years for a fairly short street! Anyway we paved the last area around the MOC cafe and Chinatown market.
I'd say we're complete, but there are plans to try and add another skinny building in somewhere!
Either way I’m super excited to build this and try out different tree, bush and other greenery techniques
Also a little ticked that I had to make the same order twice minus the CMF Series 20 figures I wanted, since somehow LEGO put up a limit of 3 per order only, despite previous CMFs usually being limited to the number of actual characters in the set per order IE 16, 18 or 22, so why now all of a sudden only three per order?
Oh well, despite the limitation direct from LEGO I found a site selling them with no limitations or restrictions and unless that one gets cancelled too out of the blue I'll at least have 16 with however many duplicates I may wind up with. And I've got a bunch of Star Wars ordered too with the free item.

- No PaB
- No BaM
- No play areas
- No feeling for CMF's
- No touching of boxes - the store staff takes the box you want of the shelf for you
- Maximum 6 customers allowed at a time in the store
So not much benefit over ordering from [email protected]/another retailer, except for seeing some sets "in the flesh" and talk to the store staff.
This afternoon I have had quite a bit of fun driving the buggies over craters and swooshing the saucers !
