1995, not much after that. I haven't set them all up in 25 years, but #6285 and #6286 are on display in my living room.
I'm also making the assumption that I'll be able to get permission for 6 feet of table space.
I agree that I need to get it @560Heliport! It's really just a matter of price right now.
I'd love to eventually add all of the Islander sets as well, but until things settle down a bit in the collectors market, I'm not sure that's going to be affordable for me. There are just a couple other sets in the post-Bluecoat (1992-95) era that I'd like to eventually add, but otherwise I'm pretty much a Bluecoat diehard.
Doesn't look nearly as impressive as the number 50 sounds... LOL
1) Admiring Diagon Alley now that I've finally finished it and put in on one of the floating shelves to the right of my home office desk. I'm really glad I set up the floating shelves the way I did! I have them staggered a little to allow for some taller sets. The middle one is a solid 45" or more. The top and bottom ones are a foot or so shorter. Diagon Alley would not have fit on any shelf but the longer middle. I almost didn't do a longer middle shelf!
2) Second guessing whether I should have gone to the Lego store this morning to join in the AFOL Shopping Day. But then I remember what everybody's said about the limitations in the US, and I'm happy I didn't waste my time.
3) Looking over the other sets currently displayed on my floating shelves, trying to figure out what I need to take apart next, so I have room for something else to build. I have a long weekend, so it's a good time for a project or two.
Llama Dance Party!
An older couple was also going through the bulk bins, selecting only brightly colored 2x4 and longer 2xX bricks. They asked me what I was going to do with all the parts I was getting. Umm, build stuff? They said that what they do with Lego is put bricks in a bag as a chew toy for their dogs. Hmm ... !!! ... does not compute ... !!! ... who does that? 😳
A) How is that safe for the dogs? and
B) Aren’t there MUCH cheaper things to let your dog chew on??
I tried my local LEGO shop at Marion and again they have let me down, I was logged on at midnight to place the order and it had already sold out. They've just missed out on both purchases along with any stray pick ups or pick a brick wall shopping that inevitably happens when I go to collect an order.
Hopefully the delivery will get here sooner than the weekend which is when I would have gone to collect and it will be a win/win.
Just traded a Petshop for 50 roadplates. And I really don't care if it was a good deal.
Side note, I don't like the new modular road system.
From the meditations of Randal Graves: According to that show [the Jetsons] we were suppose to be tooling around in flying cars by now. You see any flying cars lately?
I think that applies here, except that we need roadplates. All of the roadplates.
My Space Shuttle also shipped and R2 came up as available as a backorder.
All in all I'm pretty happy with that. Just have to wait for the local store to get in the other June 1st sets I'm after.
So the wife ordered my to get those ASAP, and maybe look for some more dino's. Ended up with ordering the 4 spikes plus 2 extra's, a Triceratops, a second variant of the Dilophosaurus and about €120-worth of brick from my Wanted Lists. That'll teach her. ;)
Have to say though, after all of the fiddling around... the layout is seeming to look very much the same as it goes back together. I did try rearranging the sets and baseplates in a variety of ways... but I just kept on coming back to how I had it before... so that's the way it's going to be for now. I did get blue poster board underneath the baseplates though which looks nice. I've also been looking for a nice backdrop to go behind the layout but have been having no luck finding one that I think would look right. I'm wanting some sort of an ocean & clouds type backdrop I'm thinking. Something that is somewhat cartoon-y I think might look good, but I haven't seen any online that really hit the spot. Anyone have any backdrop pointers?
It currently costs $10 in store if you spend $85 on Ninjago products. The LAN also announced that excess stock will be sold in July (without any purchase) for $29.99 — in store only as well I believe.
Hello, my name is Patrick and I like road plates. I refuse to buy the overpriced new road system and think it is a flawed and terrible system compared to the roads and baseplates that have been used by Lego for FIFTY years.
the height of the rubber from ground to the bottom of the wheel rim is quite tall. Lego tyres tend to be more suited to modern supercars with a low profile or small height of rubber.
Yep ... that's the way it works for me. Sometimes just moments after I report a missing piece after lots of searching!
