  2. I pulled the trigger on an eBay listing for 10212 UCS Imperial Shuttle that was up for ~£119 inc. delivery. No figures or instructions visible, but as it happens I snagged a set of instructions cheaply (~£28) a couple of years ago just in case such a listing appeared. One of the pics was also detailed enough to tell that it was proper Lego and not bogus bricks. It just arrived, and looks like I lucked out here. No sign of discoloration, stickers all seem to be here, and there was even the Luke figure (albeit with the wrong hair). I have the correct hair piece, as well as the correct stormtroop

  3. Finally picked up a Lego 21104 Cuusoo Curiosity Rover. Opened it up and getting ready to build it. Waited far too long to buy one. Finding a new one under $300 is HARD. This one is part of the 48S3 batch (48th week of 2013).

  5. I grew up in Orlando. Space Shuttle was part of our culture. I watched Challenger blow up with my naked eye standing in the outdoor field of my school yard when I was in middle school. We would watch launches on TV and then seconds after the shuttle clears the top of the tower we would run outside and watch it go up with the naked eye. It was a great time for space travel. I also have a good family friend that is an air traffic controller at the Kennedy landing facility. One time (pre-9/11) the 747 was there after dropping off the shuttle. My friend called me up and asked if my wife and I want

  8. The 3-in-1 pirate ship wasn't interesting enough for him, and Barracuda bay didn't look like a pirate ship... so he dug into the closet and decided we are building "houses" now. I haven't built anything in my backlog a couple years. Now I walk into the house after work and I'm told that I need to build things. Next he picked out the "grocery store"

  16. If you look at all the Disney SW movies, Rogue One is the only one that didn't break the SW universe or insult us like the other movies did. It did fan service but it was cleverly woven into the story line. The DV scene can be written off, but it shows us a glimpse of a younger DV who was truly scary. (Of course, we got the good side version in Mandalorian, Season 2 finale with Luke). In a New Hope all we see Vader do is pick a guy up by his neck and throw him against a wall, force choke a commanding officer to prove a point, and fly the meanest Tie fighter (although we only see it fl

  17. Maybe also appropriate for the Walmart Clearance thread, I've been tooling around to various local Walmart stores picking up clearance Hart tools. They are revamping the line for the year bringing in new twice-the-price brushless tools, so I'm finding a little here and a little there marked way down. Initially I just wanted a little inflator and a car washer. But I just kept finding good deals. Even the steel shelving unit was just $21. Now if only I could afford to buy any lumber right now.

  18. Hopefully I can complete the LOTR collection at a reasonable cost as these have shot up in value in recent years. So far, I was able to score these this month locally. I paid $60 Canadian each for 9470 and 9471 and $15 Canadian for the 79005. In USD, that's 73 cents all together.

  19. Yea a set that was available for 8 minutes will certainly lose value. Especially once the initial wave sells and it's extremely rare. No one wants that. 🙄

  25. This turns out to be the case. First real pictures are showing up on ‘Marktplaats’ (Dutch Ebay 😉). It’s a bit disappointing, but there still seems to be a lot of interest.. I’m receiving mine tomorrow. After seeing this pictures my decision to sell is going to be easier.

  28. Bought three 77907 Mario Sets when the SDCC craze hit last year. Then they stayed in stock at Target for a while so I was kinda bummed... Forgot about them. Then looked 3 days ago what they were selling for 😱! Sold one for $90 today

  32. just wanted to throw this back up and thanks again to EXRACER327. As far as a great conservative place to park $ and get a solid return...I tried it and got basically 7.8% annual yield in monthly installments looking back at the last 4 months. The stock itself happen to have went up by like 20 cents but that's not the reason to buy..just gravy. I know many here would scoff at such laughable gains...but my investment strategy is hyper conservative and compared to bank savings giving 0.1% interest or less and 5 year CDs offering a feeble 1-2%...CIK feels like a gold mine to me.

  34. I've dumped all my THs...that's too much money to have tied up for as long as it is going to be tied up. It may skyrocket after retirement, but you're looking at 2023 before it will ripe to sell. I learned my lesson on that front with the original Death Star #10188...held on to those suckers for way too long.

  35. All you cowards ordering the Ulysses with small sets to protect it. I went full balls out and had mine shoved in with two modulars taking advantage of the double VIP and 10% back from RetailMeNot. Survived without any issues.

  42. So when the first space shuttle launched on April 12, 1981 I was in Florida on vacation, and we pulled over got out of the car went to the beach and watched it take off. It was amazing. Star Wars was just a few years earlier. Star Trek the Movie. I kept up with them building the shuttle. Buck Rogers TV Show using as a deep space orbiter what looked like a shuttle. It was an amazing time to be a kid and dream of our future. Yes any model of the Shuttle means that much to me. Its a symbol for all of that and the USA. Lego space sets bring all that back to mind. That includes
