Then various other odds and ends that caught my eye as I was filling up shopping carts.
Brickmonster was a massive help as I coordinated three BL carts, BNP, and PAB. I still relied pretty heavily on my Excel spreadsheet, but the added resource was a nice addition.
My birthday was this last Sunday and, as my wife knows I rather deal hunt for LEGO than just have her buy me a set, I ended up getting cash. My wife hates it, but it makes shopping trips like this easier on my mind and the budget.
Just waiting for the WV set to be announced/released, and will grab that, Hogsmead Village, the Vader Helmet, a new BH or two, and probably the Fawkes model to round things out. Then I'll try to convince myself these are the "last LEGO purchases of the year." I've expressed it before, but I tend to end up feeling guilty when I buy LEGO for myself in November and December. So, trying to avoid that this year and just enjoy!
Now to wait for parts orders to arrive in 5-7 weeks from Denmark!
Later I also went ahead and ordered Blooper and Urchin of Series 1 from a Hong Kong BrickLink seller, along with a few of a specific part not found locally. Only a couple of dollars more than RRP per character, which isn't terrible I guess. I'll be placing a few more small local orders as well.
Side note, kinda annoying (no fault to the seller) that some parts I need show up only a few days or weeks after an order has finalized so I have to place another and pay shipping again.
Mine was "You need to take an early lunch for what?" Um, so I can swing by the Lego store and pick up the Mandalorian Forge set of course!
Definite advantages to being retired the only person I have to pacify is hubby
Thanks for the heads-up, got that and the hip hop car at ~50% off on Amazon.pl. That concludes my Vidiyo buys forever.
Still full price on Amazon.com... grr, why is the US so intent on selling Vidiyo at full price?
Wait, wrong forum.
...back to BL/BNP/PAB...
Just not sure how I missed 35 1x2 DBG Masonry Bricks in my previous orders. The other two make sense as one wasn't on my list at all, and the other should have been an order containing 3, but only had 2 (my mistake, not the seller). But those masonry bricks.....
Skull Islands that is.
Specifically this Skull Island.
Every item ended up having a ton of extras. The fewest extras were 1x1 white plates with 3 above the ordered quantity. Most had between 5-15 additional parts. The biggest win was my 1x4 tiles that ended up having 26 extra above my ordered quantity! I feel like I won a mini lottery with parts. I assume it was packaged by weight as the time savings wasn't worth counting out 500 different elements. Make sure it meets the minimum weight, and move on to the next part.
Perhaps the most dangerous part I ordered was a single Reindeer. I told myself I only needed one more. But, seeing it in person all along has me reconsidering! If the Santa's Sleigh set is indeed true, this would put me at six total. I see no reason why I shouldn't have 2-3 more?
...back to [email protected] I guess!
I also added the Tuk Tuk set and La Catrina BHz in addition to a BnP order with a couple more Reindeer. (Knew I couldn't leave it at just 1 more)
Finally used some VIP points too, so Santa's Visit is on LEGO this year!
Slightly annoyed with myself to be honest.
Now I'm off to try and source the SW Advent calendar.
As there isn't a "what would i buy" thread, i put this message in this one, haha
Unfortunately, I continue to wait for my Santa's Visit to arrive. Ordered on 9/16. Anticipated delivery per the website was 9/23. That's come and gone with no update. I've noticed this several times lately with [email protected] orders getting to the Pacific Northwest. They tend to linger for much longer than other regions I read about.
