  1. Drove home from Michigan today, took a nap and then opened up Facebook Marketplace and saw this listing for $20: Now, if you look beyond the dust and the plane, there is a wall so I instantly offered to buy it, dust and all! Then while waiting for a response I confirmed what I suspected on Bricklink. That is Green Grocer for $20.

  2. Built several since my last post. The GB firehouse, Green Grocer, and Assembly Square. Still have a few left, going to take a break from building and start to work on the layout.

  3. Picture quality isn't great - I was mostly worried about how to get the Boat home without damaging it yesterday, but I built the Great Fishing Boat at the beach last week. I really enjoyed building this set. The curved hulls are a bit fragile and I had a few frustrating moments of having to go back and rebuild sections after knocking something off, but otherwise it was a great build and the final product is fantastic. Its sitting next to the Old Fishing Store on a shelf right now, but hoping to build an actual display / MOC. If anyone has seen a good one online, let me know.

  4. This set was worth the RRP. It looks so good and has excellent detailing all around. I hung it on the wall and so far, it's been steady for four days. Sent from my Pixel 3a XL using Tapatalk

  6. Love to find sets I don’t remember buying. Every year I find a box of stuff that I have no idea how I have them. This is the box from this year.

  14. They should have made this regular train scale w/ 2-3 cars and a better train station. At 6 studs and reduced size per car they could have maybe cut the pieces and price to <$400 accordingly. for $500 they will get the die hard HP fans and not much else. Imo they have missed on the last 2 HP D2Cs. First the Owl and books set and now this.

  18. Viking Village won, you have to copy and paste the link. If this is truly a Target exclusive should be better than gold. Without further ado, we’re delighted to reveal the winning design “Viking Village” by BrickHammer, which won the fan vote with a resounding margin with the votes distributed as shown below: • Viking Village – 16,317 • Working Mini Golf Course – Fully Playable – 11,575 • Marine Life – 6,732 https://ideas.lego.com/blogs/a4ae09b6-0d4c-4307-9da8-3ee9f3d368d6/post/6bbbb9e8-90e4-43ff-9716-c0d0d8404b89

  23. Dang, I knew this was coming but some of these increases feel ridiculous. I just said to my wife: "Well, inflation has finally hit the [Keymomachine] household, Lego has raised prices 10-20%." She says, "yeah, but that means all the stuff in the basement just got that much better. It's like Forever stamps!"

  25. I....love....COOKING! ....But I hate the cleanup. I used to cook so much with my mother growing up until around middle school I think where the desire just waned. I have concocted the odd dish over the years but nothing that intensive really outside a random burrito or pizza (or random leftovers). Anyway, since last year about when I got back into some actual fitness and eating better overall, I started cooking again and rekindled a sort of passion forgotten to time. Granted the meals thus far have been straightforward with nigh a handful of ingredients. Still, I am becoming more comfortable in mixing, experimenting, substituting, and ultimately eating significantly healthier to the point where for my age & height I may be considered underweight. (Also, this darn heat.) And cleaning the mess isn't too bad. Well outside of the food processor anyway (most especially after shredding cheese). That is so tedious ....and sometimes sharp. Additionally, I love natural honey. ....Just felt like saying that. Also, eggs. And I think I am done. Yuperrino. That's it.

  26. ​Went to SDCC this past weekend with the usual group of friends (neither of them are lego fans but they benefit from me chasing the minifigures / exclusives past few years). Well one of my friends got a new corporate office job and wanted to purchase various knickknacks on the convention floor to add to a few others he had on his new desk! Today I asked him for a photo of his desk collection / display set up so far and got this image as a response LOL. I remember letting him in the line with me the year of Deadpool Duck... and there it is... opened, played with, dusty and displayed. Just a casual $500 desk decoration [emoji28](he has no idea of the value) ​ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  28. Leaked Image. Not confirmed.... But looks nice! Apparently Lego accidentally shipped this set to a customer instead of the new castle set. I love the train station/platform details.

  32. Yes, they auto-redeem on the first of the month in $5 increments. It is the best when the Kohl's cash redemption period lines up with the beginning of the month, though.

  33. Ha, sorry. Yeah every time there is Kohl’s Cash I go in and grab 2 First Flying Lesson (Kohl’s Exclusive) and get the $10 KC to use on a third if they have it in stock, if not I head straight to the gold toe socks.

  34. But what ppl may be missing is also a change in B2B prices. LEGO increase their prices to counter inflation, so they must also increase prices they offer to retailers, otherwise there's little sense. Amazon and others may provide higher discounts on a stock they bought previously at lower prices, but I am 100% certain price increase will follow with future stock deliveries.

  35. So here is my haul I did 4 separate orders and 2 of the HP for the double GWP. First time through the line it charged me $24.99 for the Forest Hideout because of the staircase so the manager had to override it. The Forest Hideout has the same seal codes as the first round so not another production run and manager said they definitely won’t have enough to make it until Wednesday when the castle comes out and most likely will be out before 5PM today, I guess for when people get off work. He said get here early if I want a castle as interest has been high and they didn’t get that many in. They did limit to 1 of each new set and I really wanted to grab another 40574 as that was gone from my wish list at 03:00. Not sure what happened to it online but he said they only got 1 case in so I am thinking 3-5 units, and by the time I got back in line they were gone.

  39. If this is the lexicon for BPers: "B-Factor" for GWPs and other "limited" promotions: the likelihood of complaints/out cry by various peanut galleries that may force LEGO to change course I think we should credit BPer: Captain Obvious

  40. "Seller – When should I purchase signature confirmation in order to be protected against an item not received case or a payment dispute? If the order has a total cost (including shipping costs and any taxes) of $750 or more, you're required to purchase signature confirmation to be protected if a buyer reports an item not received or opens a payment dispute."

  41. Depends on your pain tolerance. If there is anything sketchy about the transaction or delivery address then I may consider it. But generally I don't add Signature to anything that ebay doesn't force me to. It may create hassle for the buyer/ receiver as having to be present for the item delivery (or post office pickup).

  43. Just a hello. Started purchasing Lego when the kids became interested. Great activity to build with kids, learn etc. As a kid I didn't have the chance to play with Lego that I can remember. Picked up a some sets of my own that the kids helped build. Nicely displayed. Took a lot of heat from spouse when I rolled in with 75192 - Millennium Falcon. Won't forget that. I tended to purchase Star Wars sets as I was a big SW fan as a kid. Had some Kenner figurines back in the day. Still have many in boxes as I've not found time to prioritize assembling them. Kids are grown up now. The myriad of City, Ninjago, etc. all in pieces around and about in Lego storage containers. Find myself purchasing interesting sets now and again such as the Van Gogh set most recently. Not a collector or investor but given the number of sets I still have in a box my wife thinks otherwise. 🙂 Found this site many years ago. There was a YouTuber I watched that used to compare number of pieces, weight, etc. of sets. Found the economics of it all interesting which had led me here to so many of you that buy, sell, invest. I enjoy the threads, learnings, etc. Perhaps I'll try and sell some sets with kids preparing for college nowadays. Putting others together as well for display. I'll continue to lurk, post where it adds value.

  45. 10 years ago I would have been there at opening and bought Timmy and Jimmy a slushy from the food court so I could get 3 GWP. Now I have only been to the Lego store once this entire year. Time > $ If you don’t have any staircase and you need it to complete the collection or you think it will be your “ White Whale” someday then go, but if you don’t live somewhere where you can hit 3 stores or are still allowed in the back room to get multiples then stay. Gas, tolls and time it just isn’t worth it to have 1 to sell. The set will most likely be back just like the dorms and MBOM and you will know. Also once people start getting their shipments in watch eBay auctions that’s what I do and usually make out alright on GWPs that have a “B” factor below 8.
