    Feeling hubby's frustration with 9396 Technic Helicopter. Can't seem to get it so the front wheel goes down when getting to the point of completing book #2. Tried to figure out the problem for him but no luck.
  • dimefielddimefield Edmonton Alberta CanadaMember Posts: 314
    ^Didn't even know that was out! Looks like a fun build... Technic can be tricky sometimes. Good luck!

    Finished assembling the last of Monster Fighters 9461 Swamp Creature and 9465 The Zombies. Then put them all away until mid-October when I'll decorate for Halloween. Have all the summer Friends sets to put together, but the palm of my right hand still has some healing to do and it hurts a lot tonight.

    Just came home from The Dark Knight Rises. Amazing movie. I didn't watch the first two movies so I had no idea who the characters were or if there were villains or good guys. It took a while to understand the whole thing. Now I'm going to need to buy the first two movies on Blu Ray.

    One question, how come the sets LEGO produced for Batman has no connection with what the vehicles and stuff in the movie? Were they based off the first two?

    ^Only #7888 was based on the movie. Rest were based on the Comic and Batman 1 video game (or vice versa).
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,917
    ^ Thanks @BrickDancer. Shortly after posting, I realized the next wave of sets will be based on the Dark Knight series.

    ^ Thanks @BrickDancer. Shortly after posting, I realized the next wave of sets will be based on the Dark Knight series.

    Not so sure if it'll be a full wave based on TDKR - there have only been three film-based minifigs unveiled, the others are villains from the comics universe.

    Had a dream where LEGO produced a life-sized London Double Decker Bus and other types of buses too (articulated, trolley).

    I've always dreamed of having a LEGO articulated bus, but never had the parts to make one or it was simply too difficult.

    Finished the Maersk Train, last build before Cameroon. That blue is so beautiful in person, I thought it looked good in pictures, but once I got my hands on it... wow. Now I need the Container Ship! And maybe another train or 3...

    Cracked the seals on my Fire Brigade tonight and got the first section done. I think it looks great visually, but the high walls make it hard to position anything inside. Need slimmer arms.

    Received my Death Star II today and excited to build this big grey globe =D.

    Had about 80 more pounds LEGO delivered, now having a blast sorting it.
    Found the 7018-1 Viking Ship challenges the Midgard Serpent to be in the lot. That alone makes it a great deal for me :-D
    There are also a couple of pirate ships in there, sails are missing though.
    Well back to sorting the lot..

    Picked up about 25-30 lbs bulk yesterday, no complete sets but loads of very useable pieces.
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,917
    Have a very strong sense that my mailman/postal workers have been stealing all my LEGO related mail.

    In the past two-three months, I have not received catalogs, magazines, and customer service packages (missing parts).

    Have requested for a new catalog twice now since I have no been receiving mine lately, and was told they would arrive in 2 weeks time. 1 month. Nothing. Has missing parts from a set, sent in a order, 3 weeks later. Nope, nothing.

    Normally, these type of packages would arrive in less than two weeks.

    I'm not going to point any fingers or make dumb assumptions, just what I'm feeling right now. :(

    Hope they arrive soon.
  • BrickarmorBrickarmor USAMember Posts: 1,258
    ^ Oh no!!!! Man, I hope you get it straightened out.

    @krklint Oh yes!!! By a happy accident we went on vacation near the end of July so I was able to scour many more stores than my local one.

    Feeling a little Legostitute today. :(

    Legostitute = completely lacking any monetary funds to buy that great lego deal that you have just spotted.
    - A financial condition resulting from weeks of bargain hunting after coming out from your Lego Dark Age.

    Finally completed my sons CMF collection (series 1 thru 7). Took longer than I thought. Kept trading off some of the ones we had collected which I thought were doubles only to find out that was not the case. That Cheerleader killed me, traded her off twice, only to realize I never actually had it as a spare. Needless to say, he now has one plus a double.

    Now, onto purchasing some Omega 3/6/9...
  • Penkid11Penkid11 Member Posts: 788
    Just discovered that the wedge end of the new orange brick separators assist in removing tile pieces. Tears of joy...

    Looking forward to visiting Brickfair this weekend with my son. Though I never lost my appreciation for LEGO MOCs and scale modeling in general, I was still in my dark ages last year when we first went to Brickfair. This year, I'm fully stoked!! :-)

  • richoricho Member Posts: 3,830

    That made me LOL!
    On a related note, due to being Legostitute, I declared to my wife last night:
    "I will not buy any new LEGO sets for all of August."
    Clever of me! I can still have someone else buy me LEGO sets and I can still buy PAB and loose sets! Hooray for my grasp of the English language!

    @MorkMan Speaking as a woman, those kinds of details may cos you big time if she decides to go shopping, LOL.

    Stayed up all night to bid on 5 Duplo promo bricks from Germany - worth it as I won them! These will be my first not from the US parks and events!

    Having a great Lego day even if I had to go in Meadowhall on a Saturday, Did two squares of the mosaic and got a nice bag with a few things in :) Shame we had to leave before it was finished though.

    It's always a funny story when you find out you were un-intentionally and un-knowingly in a bidding/offer war with someone here on Brickset for a rare item on Bricklink. Good times... good times..
  • gifinimgifinim UKMember Posts: 174
    Nothing big today, just the 9461 Swamp Creature from Argos and a battered 8045 Mini Telehandler from Tesco for £4.75 (last one).

    Spent the rest of the day building other sets with the kids :)
