Since it’s Halloween 🎃 thought I’d display the appropriate minifigures
For anyone in the area or who has recently been, do they still have Lester polybags? Anything else I should be aware of?
There was the Royal Guard polybag too... but that might have only been at the Hamley's department store. They also have the minifigure factory at Leicester. Otherwise, I would imagine there would be some gear-type items, magnets or keychains, etc.
Leicester is in Leicestershire in the Midlands of England. Leicester Square is in London - approximately 100 miles away.
BUT, now I do! Thanks @bookmum for the clarification. My friend seemed to be totally up for it when I asked about visiting Leicester Square. So perhaps he was headed that way anyway?
Anyway it has Katy Perry in it. She wears this dress.....
At the moment there is only the button in the main menu "Forum". It would be nice if all kinds of articles or reviews on the homepage would contain a link to the forum.
News articles: there is now a link 'Continue reading'. The discussion immediately begins below that. Suggestion: you could also add an extra link under 'Continue reading', for example 'Discuss this topic on our Forum' followed by a link to the thread.
Same with a review. When CapnRex101 discusses a new Star Wars set, a link can be made at the end of it to the general Star Wars forum.
Another suggestion: be transparent about the affiliate links: explain why they are so important for the survival of the forum. Also explain how it works and how much income (not too specific, maybe you could mention 'a few percent') is generated from it. This is something no one will find strange. Don't be ashamed! We are Lego friends and for our hobby we need Brickset!
To everyone: do you have any other ideas that could help Huw?
Also, that "answer" is a little misleading. It implies that the bricks were originally made of wood. Not true; LEGO started with wood toys, then started making plastic toys, then started making the building blocks we know as LEGO.
As far as the supposedly wrong plural "LEGOs": that is the common usage in the US, therefore it is correct here. There are many words in the English language whose meaning or use have changed over time.
So it's not a a surprise that when it happens that someone uses the word LEGOS there will be people protesting against it.
Whether it's LEGO or LEGOS: anyone who loves playing with LEGO bricks should be considered as a fan and thus a valuable member of the community!
You know you should only do that if someone happens to be filming you with their phone. Thems the rules.
being reminded of that on a recording.. no thank you.
I'll just leave this pic here. The aftermath of a shelf above my display collapsing a few years ago. It took weeks to rebuild everything but, thankfully, I only had to replace a couple of damaged bricks.
thank you for the kind words.
i finish rebuilding it today. about 7 hours to rebuild it all.
had to sub in some part i cound not find. but it is hole again. even if the clutch power of a number of parts is not as good as it was on the 1st build.
that and the 2 plates thick shell was a real pain to keep its build. parts keep come part.
i my self i feel 3 plates thick is needed for a true stable build.
Thankfully, the shelf that you can see in the picture took the brunt of the weight of the shelf above and protected the line of modulars from too much damage. Many other sets were trashed, as you can see.
At least it did spur me on to replace all of the shelving!
I got the Fun and Funky VIP add-on (my fourth!) and the fleece blanket. My cat will love the blanket.
