  1. This is why I circumvent the stupidity of myself by not having children. You might say "What if you do by accident"? I just practice Abstinence. Its easy when you are married.

  2. Hi All. Just finished my Mini Cooper changeover project. I really didn't like the green so I went for the more Classic Cooper look. What do you guys think?? I also put it up eBay item number: 111429812246

  4. I hate when people buy multiples of a set yet they are unsure of its investment potential. The exo suit comes to mind. People are buying these by the caseload whining about whether or not it will be a winner and saying o well if not I have x amount of days to return. Meanwhile some can't even get one to build. Butthurt in 3......2.....1....

  6. I'm getting really annoyed at the latest selling tactic on Kijiji.... "Make me an offer but don't lowball me because a local collector told me how much they are worth." Oh really? They are worth $0 unless you can sell them. Sent from Multi-Post iPod touch using Brickpicker

  7. Well, if it happened on the day when exo-suit and research institute were released, then 7 year old may have looked out of place there. All the weird looking dudes with shifty eyes mumbling some codes would have been more common

  17. Yeah, there's a big difference between saying "let's all set the price minimum at $x" and you making an informed decision on your own to sell something at a similar price as what I've sold it at. It's just another source of information, like reviewing eBay sold listings.

  18. I'm actually glad you asked. I've thought about it, but wasn't sure if it was bad form. If we have as much power as we think we've got, then we should be keeping each other informed. It does pay to do whether things are moving up or down. I also don't believe in undercutting each other. If we can keep ourselves from doing that, it drives prices up, not down.

  19. For Europeans: I don't know if they ship abroad or if it can be arranged, but Hungarian store kocka.hu has exo-suits in stock at the Hungarian MSRP. They are out of RI though. http://kocka.hu/Lego_21109/LEGO_Cuusoo_-_Exo_Suit

  24. When you were 7, would you, voluntarily, leave Lego store??? And did you ever try to shop in the mall with 7 year old? If she left him at the mall playground for 90 minutes, I doubt anyone would even notice...

  26. As commenter properly pointed out: "Just about every parent in the 50s and 60s would be arrested today for neglect for allowing their kids to roam free" He was 7 year old. At the Lego store. In the mall.

  30. Let's be grateful they didn't make any sacrifices to the beautiful aesthetics of the model just to accommodate a feature that doesn't even work on a kids set.

  31. Since it's a UCS set aimed at AFOLs I see why they omitted flick fires.

  32. they sometimes have some discounts on retiring sets, nothing that you wont find at most retailers though .. it is def a sight seeing all the big sets on the shelf, so if you are really into Lego (not just resale), i would advise you to make the trip at some point.

  35. Just finished Market Street and Parisian Restaurant. Market Street was much cooler than the pictures online...but definitely not the best modular. Parisian Restaurant has an insane level of detail, a somewhat meticulous build but stunning when finished!

  36. You probably can try rear steering on this set with some technic pieces. Front steering will be very hard to implement.

  38. lol it happened again. Someone opened a case because I shipped them a new lego set...unbuilt. Because, "the picture on the box shows it built and I need a replacement". You can't make this stuff up. TBH I think it's an alt account of a bitter buyer who lost a case and she is trying to up my defect rate. Whadya gonna do.

  43. As I have mentioned before, it is my opinion that this set won't be around long. It was designed and produced to appease the masses....

  45. I wouldn't be very worried if I were you. If it is the set for early release on the 18th then there will be plenty to be had. I highly doubt Lego would allow it to,sell out before it's actual release date to non VIP members on the 1st. On a side note the amount of paranoia and craziness and worrying that has been going on lately is ridiculous. Almost every set that is ever released, with the exception of a few,(zombies, LE technic crawler) being the only ones I can name off the top of my head, will be available to purchase without fear of missing out on it. I used to love reading and posting on these forums but lately people, not singling anyone out here, but people in General have just become almost obsessed it seems with stuff like I didn't get an order confirmation, is something wrong, should I call Lego? Should I order again? Anyone else have this problem? Your order ship yet? Am I banned? When is this set that isn't even released gonna retire and how much is it gonna be worth. I need to know now now now! It's ridiculous. Mods feel free to move or remove this post to an appropriate forum topic. Or delete it if it is too harshly worded.

  46. In permanent use in our Lego city - 1 X Passenger Train 7938 (used as a subway) - 1 X Public Transport Tram 8404 Sometimes in use: - 1 X 7939 Cargo Train with an extra tanker car We have about 20 feet of track in use with another 20 feet spare for the kids to play with on the floor. I wish I had more room for more trains, but at the moment we don't!
