Today my daughter decided she was in a train mood, so we used almost all our track on a mega layout. Goods yard in the corner of our bedroom that led to a circuit on the landing with a spur off to the LEGO room for deliveries. Need more straight track now
I was already planning on getting both the NES and piano when they release, but now I don't know. Good thing is I think I'll get a second stimulus check to help pay for this stuff. Oh, and both PS5 and XBOX Series X come out soon and I need a 4k 120 hz tv.
(No, I didn't buy one. I'll wait for my drastically overpriced Razorcrest.)
We've been having Minion fun this weekend. Son and me have been building and my son has been playing with them a lot. Really great set!
This is a set and a half, you can transfer Kevin into Bob, so if you want all 3, you need more than one set :)
I placed a few BL orders to make a Steampunk style car from Rebrickable. Was pleased to be able to build over half of it from my disorganised piles of bricks!
Very very pleased with it, what a great set!
As far as my LEGO status, my LEGO Trains Projects book is supposedly coming, along with my #75317. Now to wonder what in progress means on Mario.
Didcot a heritage rail centre south of Oxford
the Croc Loco came in! Woot! Pretty excited! I actually lost a little interest in the roller coaster build. Think the Croc will be displayed on my desk at the office next to the 40 years train GWP.
Through the 8 bags on the Roller coaster. First bit of track now laid on the second half of the structure. Fun stuff!
However, they all make use of the terrible newer helmet design, so I've also decided I want to use old helmet parts to substitute in so they fit with the rest of the suits. Which has raised the cost of the whole thing substantially.
Why do I do this to myself...?
Design is from Rebrickable, but some of the golden pieces that made up the tank are silly money and not available in the quantities I needed, so a pair of large barrels were used instead. Driver is a mix of pieces from Firestar Toys
The wife and I are quickly outgrowing our home due to the kids needing more and more space and starting to compete with my Lego space. So we've made the decision to move to a bigger place, bonus is I will have a dedicated Lego room rather than having my collection spread around the various rooms in our house at the moment! Sad to see the empty shelves which used to hold my Creator Expert, Ideas, SW UCS and Marvel sets but still got a few polybags in the drawer to keep me going.
Now just need a buyer so we can start the process of buying the new place and moving all my precious bricks to their new home!!
And what about all those direct-to-video LEGO DC Specials? Is that over? I wasn't expecting much for a LEGO Movie 3, but I was kind of hoping for them to at least finish the trilogy under the same roof.
Stock is also at a historic low across the board - including Target and Wal-Mart.
