What did you order on 1/1?
I placed an order at midnight: #10278 Police Station, #75299 Trouble on Tatooine and a series 21 CMF. Cashed in my VIP keyring code so got that free plus the vintage car, and used my points to halve the price. A good start to 2021!
1) Police modular
2) 2x Chinese New year lantern, Nian, and Panda brickheadz
3) Bonsai and bouquet
4) Bonsai, bouquet and new Mandalorian set.
Now to wait for their arrival!
I really want the book of monsters GWP but have all the Harry potter sets, and the new books are interesting but expensive in Switzerland. Buying 2 doesn't get the promo so I would have to get 3 of them or a small extra...will have a think about it but I really want the Ninjago Gardens set as well soon so need the money!
I wasn't going to order them anyway, but all of the Hogwarts Moments books were already on backorder. Police Station was still available now.
I'll still pick up the Pandas. Debating if I want to just get the bouquet too to reach the GWP. Decisions decisions.
To be fair, the set itself is great, and both GWPs are both pretty sizable and pretty great on their own. Definitely think if you were going to break, this was a good reason to do it :)
Then on the day, when I opened my present, I just went rather overboard in how much I loved it, opened it that afternoon (Boxing Day is my goto day for Lego building) and got out all the minifigs (and eagle) so (a) I could show them to my wife and relate back to the film, and (b) play with them my son. Then the following day I built it all, pointing out all the features that were just as I had hoped.
She knew she made the right choice in letting me choose.
Now, if only I could work out what she wants, I'd be golden!
2019 was also a big win because she somehow got the Amazon Lightning Deal on the UCS MF, so that was a very nice surprise! It's not a set I probably would have bought for myself, especially not at full price, but I'm THRILLED to have it!
