  1. Bought a pinball machine today, Williams Space Shuttle (1984). It was during the rain but I tarped it as best I could for the 1.5 hour ride home. Got home and had to label and disconnect about 12 cables and remove the backbox in order to get this thing to the basement but we're rockin' and rollin' now!

  2. Got around to finishing this. What a classic. The red brown pieces though are painfully brittle. I got some replacements from Lego though.

  5. Spent the morning doing some boat restoration. Sails just arrived for the Flagship. I didn't appreciate the size of the Flagship until sitting it next to the Black Pearl. It's a massive boat.

  6. Picked up a couple weeks ago. Decided since it was close enough to take the drive. Offered asking price as it seemed worth it. Snapped a picture of the listing when I got back home for memories. They provided no pictures, but It was quite the "hull" Overall from the bulk bin the 3 sets were about 98% complete. Sails for the Pearl and Queen Anne were in good shape. The flagship sails looked like they were used as toilet paper... so aftermarket sails are set to arrive tomorrow. Missing pieces already arrived from Bricklink. Manual missing for the flagship but the othe

  7. 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. just to give you all a followup. ebay ruled very quick.... eBay opened a case because of an issue with an item purchased from you. We reviewed the case and have decided to issue the buyer a refund of US $36.99 without any impact to you. This case is now closed. You are not required to reimburse the buyer or eBay, and this case will not be counted in your seller performance evaluation. Here's the case outcome eBay Customer Support has refunded the buyer.

  9. I got home from work Friday to my 4 year old saying "daddy build another pirate ship". Apparently he's addicted now. So I let him pick one out and we built it. Without a doubt the hardest set I've ever built in hard mode. The piece selection is vast (4 inventory pages in the manual) so finding one or two of the low count pieces was quite a pain.

  15. Gore, Kerry and Hillary Clinton were not recorded calling the governor/secretary of state of a state they lost asking them to find enough votes to win. They didn't promote conspiracy theories about voter fraud and the election being stolen. And finally there was no mob rushing the capitol building when congress was certifying the election. So spare me the Republicans are just doing what Democrats have always done line, it just doesn't hold up to scrutiny. Al Gore lost the 2000 election because of 537 votes in Florida, not thousands of votes in a half dozen states. In both 2000 and 2016 the eve

  17. This morning I built the Rogue Shadow and it was not like most of the other Star Wars builds I have done. The ship is asymmetrical, has a fair amount of internal Technic pieces and took me over three hours to complete, partially because of my curious need to have the Lego logo facing in the same direction as I build (the set has under 500 pieces). I really bought set for the excellent minifigure selection because it includes the exclusive Darth Vader Battle Damaged and Darth Vader's Apprentice, and ended up liking it because it is a unique ship. The set was supposed to be complete per

  19. Not sure why I built this in Spring...but, finally built the santa sleigh from #10245 Santa Workshop...and slightly modified it with the Reindeer from 10275 Elf Clubhouse. Also working on a Nativity for the fireplace mantle to go with the Santa sleigh...but, I still need to work on ordering some parts (including finding a different angel and a Lego baby - kind of an important piece to the scene...LOL).

  21. 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. 🙄

  22. Built these over the last few nights. I'll keep them out for a couple of weeks and then pack them up until my son is ready for them. He's already pretty good at using the catapults and driving the horsies.

  23. I must have ordered right as they went OoS on the GWPs as my order shows only the Discovery. Called CS to cancel but of course the order went into Warehouse status while I was waiting in the queue. Rep told me she couldn't cancel anymore and checked the system and said the promos were all gone (actually, she said she didn't think they had any promos and it must have been an issue with the website, but that just shows how much conjecture there is in CS's answers, given that several of you have warehouse confirmations of 10283+2 GWPs). Offered a return label or she could look for some other prom

  24. It's always nice when you can get the wife involved. My wife stole my Bonsai and built it when it first came out. Then I came home from work a few days ago and she was working on it again. I asked her "You taking it apart to put in storage?", she replied "Nope, it's spring... time to swap out the green leaves for the pink cherry blossoms".

  29. Finally got the Disney Castle finished today. I enjoyed building it, just fitting it in a night or two at a time here and there. I liked all the extra disney details it had. Hopefully it will last a day or two at least before my cat knocks it down! 😂

  35. Watching my son take his first ice hockey practice as a Squirt (10U). He’s been playing for 4 1/2 years (he just turned 9). I’ve kept him down at the lower level because you’re technically supposed to be 9 to play Squirts. Squirts is when they play a full sheet of ice, and start learning the rules (icing, etc).

  36. Since this topic is supposed to be about what we did today. . . I spent a good portion of my day cutting tree roots out of a septic leach field. I’ll let the image of a grown man pulling roots covered in his own crap sit with you for a bit before opining that the activity however disgusting and arguably pointless (since the leach field is likely beyond saving) was still somehow more productive than this thread.

  37. I built Pooh. I parted out the minifigs so the set was basically free, but it seems overpriced at $99 for what you get. The instruction book is done nicely with the classic Pooh illustrative motif, although it doesn’t come bagged and mine was ripped. Mix of printed elements and stickers. My main issue is more with Lego in general but this set maybe where they jumped the shark. It used to be neat to build a set with mostly square bricks and see the various building techniques used to make all kind of shapes and nice finished products. This set uses so many specialized elements some larger

  42. The Saturn V was three generations working on the build in our household..my boy's grandfather (my father-inlaw) got pretty into it. The best part is having such a large build for all of us to hold together at the end for a great picture. This was what LEGO was meant for.
