However despite that big downer the silver lining is that there’s a new (from my awareness) Lego show coming to Bournemouth near me the weekend after - “The Big Brick Show”. So I’ll have to check that one out on the Sunday!
Verdict is, he doesn't fit unless his crew always stays in the bunks. So, his own ship will be better! At least it taught me what his ship will take. (He's been a Space Ranger in extended media.)
Not pictured: Elf Club House, Santa’s Workshop, or Hogsmeade, they were recently purchased and weren’t subjected to the same annual blender.
...I know this because mine fall out every year I go to set up and have to remind myself where they go.
That chimney top may also be the Bakery?
Orange Spaceman £8 in WHSmith.
Most of the old comics have long stopped being published so the annuals have changed and these days are mostly themed with whatever toys/TV show/film characters are fashionable with kids So last few years it's been stuff like Barbie, Star Wars, Peppa Pig, Minecraft etc and that includes a Lego one.
Annuals are officially "not as good as they used to be" so the Lego one is only really worth getting if it comes with a good minifig.
The rest really are "I might buy it when it's reduced to £1 after Christmas".
I admit I was a bit slow coming out of my dark ages, then i was slow on catching on there are such things as lego forums, slow with visiting annofficial Lego-store/discovering [email protected]… ok you get the picture. But only last year did i notice these really nicle looking books with ”Build your…” some of them with a minifih or a few bricks. Most of them are from a publishing house (?) that has ”DK” as their logo. Then this summer when waiting for food at the Mini Chef @ LegoHouse i saw really many diffferent official (?) Lego books, something about first man (minifig) in space, about Batman, Max etc. The books were mainly in danish, english and german.
I get it, few people speak swedish so its not like i expect to see these books translated into swedish. But we have a bookstore-chain that is fairly big, at least one store in each larger city where its fairly easy to find/order books in many common large languages such as english, french, german…and i dont expect the same variety of lego books, but at least
and although i now find info about official books by lego here at Brickset. I have never seen books in the official lego store and at [email protected] im surprised lego doesnt have more books. I imagine that DK (and other) publishing companies still have to pay something to TLG when printong books about building w lego? Or some sort of ”collaboration” - so strange to not see books about lego at [email protected], if space/type of products people buy in official lego store is an issue….
Lengthy post. :) Again, thank you! I will have a look on WHSmiths website. And next time im in the capitol/at an airport, i will have a closer look at the magazine section.
Should we be calling the Lego Protection Society? This is beyond cruelty!
Have enough of a backlog that I need to do that and still buying a bit more
Sorting by type helps based on what I feel like building, and some form of organization reminds me what I have and makes the pile more compact and stable
