    Very unexpectedly, we made a trip to Bluewater, as my daughters had been earlier in the week, but hadn't had a chance to have a proper look round the Lego Shop (although they did return with a set each!) and they wanted to spend the rest of their Birthday and Christmas money on a Build-a-Bear.

    I swear it was all their fault, but I seemed to end up leaving with #10283 NASA Space Shuttle Discovery and the #40450 Amelia Earhart Tribute GWP. They obviously made plenty of *those* to go round! ;-)

    While being an excellent tribute to an amazing, pioneering aviator, it's such a shame that her plane, the Lockheed Vega 5b, was just so ugly! If I do build it, I'll have to make Huw's base for it as well.

    @gmonkey76 that is a great trio of sets!  

    I really wanted to get the Ninjago Gardens and/or Pooh with double points, but both are still out of stock... However, these did arrive yesterday...

    Whelp, with double points being so rare lately, I had been considering making a big purchase to get some expensive exclusives/hard-to-finds, and then I noticed that the bonsai was available for purchase again, although on backorder, and I decided to pull the trigger...

    Got the bonsai, ECTO-1, Bookshop, Monkey King's Mech, and the 2 new Pets Brickheadz.  I thought about doing a couple more, but this is really already more than I should be doing right now..,

    @KungFuKenny yes I was surprised to actually find them in the stores, and with double points I couldn't pass them by.

    Yeah... I just did the same. Ordered a bonsai for the double points to receive... oh, sometime around fall I suppose. LOL

    My #10255 Assembly Square should be arriving tomorrow. I'm 4 years late to the party, but I've only been collecting the modular buildings for 12 months and I have most of the other buildings at this point. I'm very excited to build it.

    Well, I was on vacation and saw the 2X VIP a little too late. When I signed on last night to make my purchase, the promo was gone...

    BUT, seeing as most of what I was about to buy was all Star Wars sets, I'll have another opportunity just around the corner. So, at least there is that.

    It sounds small by comparison, but I'm planning to buy some 2019 Speed Champions at 20% off before they're gone from store shelves.  Seeing the price appreciation of the older Speed Champions has really caught my interest.
    I ordered #75895 Porsche from Amazon but when it came time to ship it, they said it was out of stock.  I'll stop by my local Target to get it, maybe the McLaren, and maybe a few copies of each.

    The best workout for my legs. Nothing I really wanted (black dots maybe? I often run out of them), had bonus-points to spend. Could have fit more, I think, but I was kinda bummed out.

    Nah, they were like: "I'm not gonna start watching One piece, until it's finished" and "Look at this photo of a man who stacked bricks in circle".

    I just finished building the Technic Land Rover and now this has arrived... only $10 after using VIP points from the recent double points promotion!

    Wile E. Coyote and Sylvester. Found them at Target; there were about a dozen. The first two packets I fondled were these two, and they are my most-wanted of the Loony Tunes, so I quit then. 😁

    Is is it possible to have Wile E. Coyote and not have Road Runner ? Makes me start to twitch just typing it!

  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 2,435
    Oh, I'll get them all, eventually! But Wile had a lot more screen time than Roadrunner. (Also, I was on my way to lunch with my parents, so couldn't spend too much time fondling.)

    These darn rumors about the possible discontinuation of baseplates triggered me to pick up 6 more 32x32 blue baseplates at Target yesterday. With the sales price of $5.99 ($2 off retail) and the extra 5% off, it worked out to nearly 30% off total, so not awful. I want to be prepared for the next time we can have conventions again so I can make a large classic Pirates display.

    I received a small bonus at work for leading a project that will result in a little extra LEGO cash. I'm debating on which SW sets I want to snag tonight at midnight. It's looking like I'll likely go for the Probe Droid and new helmets, but I may swap and go for R2-D2. Decisions decisions....

    Pick A Brick walls just reopened here with a significant price reduction across the board, so like @mafon I went to town! Unfortunately ended up passing on the #40449 GWP as I couldn't think of anything else to buy to qualify.
    So. Many. Tiles. I really should've gotten more of those teal 2x4s instead of hogging all the dark orange, dark red and dark tan ones. The dark greens went into my newest MOC immediately.
    And just yesterday I finally used one of my vouchers and got myself some more DOTS. I found out from the 1:1 image that the Bag Tag is almost exactly the same size of square as my 4th-generation iPod shuffle that's been chilling on my bag for the last several years! I got a third Series 1 pack just for the 😂 tile, no regrets. There's additional 🎵 and ⚡ tiles too, which is great. And some 💬 and 🔒 tiles in the Series 3 pack. Got #41924 for the black plates and the basic bricks, as well as the medium lavender tiles.

    Not the deal of a lifetime, but not bad either... Roughly 12 pounds of bulk bricks (sorted by colors mostly already - lots of greens & earth tones) plus some other small sets #31058 #31088 #40235 #21138 for $58 from FB marketplace.

    Honestly, same. I was shocked by how many different tiles there were. This particular PAB wall is actually the newest and largest in the country, the store just reopened and this one absolutely dwarfs the previous largest one.

    I was going to do that but it was on backorder so I went with the new x-wing instead.

    Went to MOA Lego store. (Yes, I should have gone earlier during double VIP points, but I worked a lot this week.) I got #75286, intending to use $20 of VIP points, but forgot so paid full price 😡. Also a large PAB cup and two Loony Tunes CMFs- both Lola Bunny. Got the #30388 and #40451 GWP. Then I stopped at Target, and #75277 was reduced to $48.49. I wasn't very interested in the helmets, but I was looking at Boba Fett at the Lego store and thought, "If I was going to get one, that's the one." ...So I left Target with it. Umm... Happy Birthday to me! (On the 23rd!)

    My local Game shop (any other X-Wing miniature game players out there?) has been carrying some lego but it's all over MSRP so I haven't bought any. today I splurged and picked up #75242. $7 over MSRP. I figured that wasn't bad for a retired set and I like supporting the store when I can since I also game there.

    @560Heliport we have similar taste for May the 4th it seems...

    (Not pictured is my Mos Eisley Cantina, which is backordered despite being purchased within 5 minutes of becoming available again...)

    @560Heliport: Coral 1x1s, teal 1x2s, and is that 1x1 dark purple or medium lavender?
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 2,435
    @LegoSonicBoy medium lavender.

    ^ Oh gosh, that looks amazing!!! I reckon I'm not going to need more than one box though, as I have plenty of DOTS sets as it is.
  • EGRobertsEGRoberts OntarioMember Posts: 140
    I am in a holding pattern, budgeted for almost all the new Harry Potter line and a few of the new 3 in 1 castle! I cannot wait for that as the blacksmith just makes me really want to build up my black falcon collection. Mind you I will keep my eyes peeled for that Dots box now as well as that would be really handy on so many levels.
