  1. I built the Chinese Lantern Festival using mils but really, I drove around the city looking for this porch greeter. I then ran to storage to grab my ecto-1 and GBHQ so that Spengler and Co. can go atop the hotel at Central Park west. Festival is nice, but the sidewalk is too narrow and you can't walk around the bench or lampposts. My poor citizens have to walk into traffic... Or marshmallow men

  5. Got my box from Minifigures+ today. I did not get 3 full sets. 3 - Scarlet Witch 3 - Vision 3 - Monica 3 - Bucky 3 - Falcon 5 - Loki 1 - Sylvie 3 - Spidey 3 - Cap 3 - Carter 3 - T'Challa 3 - Gamora I mean, I'm irritated, but I also fully expect 2 of the Loki's to change when I'm not looking at them.

  6. Here is a quick backstory to that I had built my Jeep to handle moderate trails and tires was the last piece of that. I probably looked at every aggressive tire made and asked my wife what she thought for each model. Eventually she breaks and says "I don't care, they all look the same to me, stop showing them to me." Ever since then when one of us is tired of discussing a subject we politely inform the other that "this is becoming a tires conversation" and that's the signal to move on.

  8. Amazon gave me a 96 hour hall pass to list Lego brand products, so I added a few exclusives that weren't in the catalog. If you have any that you want posted, PM them to me and I'll see what I can do. Include the UPC, please.

  9. Bought a used lot on OfferUp, for $100. It had a pic showing about 5 arctic expedition sets, a pic showing 4-5 friends sets, a pic of minecraft crafting box 1.0, and then this pic of Star Wars sets. He ended up having every minifigure for every set in a separate box including the Queen Amidala. Just started going through the Star Wars stuff tonight, Gungan sub was only missing JarJar's harpoon gun and the blue anchor. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk

  15. To purchase the Reindeer element direct from LEGO the cost is $5.86 each so those four reindeer make up 63% of the cost of this set, not including the rigging to connect them to the sleigh. While $36.99 seems high, it is actually fair based on the cost of the elements in the set. ANIMAL, NO. 98 Element 6310336 Design Number 69060 Unit Price USD 5.86

  16. Over the past few weeks I've been on a Technic kick. Next is the Bugatti, of which I will need to find the space to mount both that and the Porsche 911 on the Wall, to make room ALSO for the Ferrari F88 GTE. But I think ill omit the stickers to make that one a road LM car. The McLaren Senna GTR is also on my purchase list as it will fit in the hauler.

  17. There are 5 digit seal codes as well, which follow the <day of the week><week#><factory><year> format. So 733S1 is Sunday (or Saturday) of the 33rd week of 2021, produced in Kladno.

  18. Remake of the iconic 76023 - The Tumbler by the same LEGO designer (Adam Grabowski) who created the previous version from 2014. His explanation about this set on Brickset: It was decided to re-release the LEGO Tumbler, and since I made the 2014 one, I was asked to do it again. Initially it was supposed to be a simple reissue, but I was allowed to change some things that annoyed me for the past 7 years, but only if I would fit it in within a pretty tight schedule (since it was supposed to be a simple reissue, the timeplan wasn’t laid out like it would be for a kit this size). I started with the rear end, in the first version it was way to narrow, and the tractor tyres (which I already keep on getting messages about how they are wrong, but in my opinion look similar enough to boggers that are on the real thing) didn’t exist either, then I pinched the front end to bring the wheels closer together, which led to a complete redesign of the first third of the model, at this point I managed to add the gunners window in the middle, and some suspension details I didn’t even know existed when I was building the first one (thank you @jaylenosgarage for the crystal clear footage during the day). The rest remained mostly untouched, except for swapping bricks for new versions (like 2x6 tiles instead of 2 times 1x6 tiles), or for more correct colors (like smoke windows), but then, I was quite happy with it in 2014, and I saw no reason to reinvent it from scratch. This does come at a price hike. While the 76023 was $199.99 / €199,99, the new Tumbler comes at $229.99 / €229,99.

  21. 75945 Expecto Patronum had 4 minfigs and the trans-blue stag for $20. And the stag was a new mold. So $37 is pretty bonkers. I get 4 reindeer is high for a GWP but then again the sailboat has 2 dolphins and 2 minifigs. So could have been with a $200 purchase.

  23. 1. Courtney Thorne Smith looked great even in a blurry video. I got a crush on her ever since Revenge of Nerds 2 2. Never knew where Norm's train of thoughts would take you. Sometime his bits were so out there, but more often they went to weird unpredictable places

  25. I think it's great. Never seen the show though so I'm not sure of investment potential. I'll get a set & drop the minifigs into my modular city. My town lacks diversity.

  27. So, when I played softball, old guys would routinely use Tiger Balm pain relieving ointment. Smelled so strong. Made fun of it. Went backpacking recently. Painful. Bought some when I got back home. Wish I brought that stuff with me. AMAZING.

  28. Getting old. Yesterday I played my 1st flag football game in 6 years. I had been getting the itch again so I let the guys know I'd be willing to come back part time to give someone a break here and there. Well, half the guys didn't show for week 1 and I was forced to play iron man 7v7. I was happy I held my own against kids more than half my age but now I'm loaded up on advil and can barely move. Sucks getting old. Plus we lost 42-20.

  32. That's all I needed to see to know that there will be plenty more old retired sets being re-released, and that hold times are now just a game of Russian roulette. How many years can you hold before blowing your profits away?

  33. I had an issue with SAH home last year (do t even remember what it was) but I got a lovely British woman on phone working from home. She was great! Resolved my minor problem then then gave me a few options of alternate GWPs. I had all of them already I told her (just being honest). So she said “I’ll surprise you”. Fair enough I told her. Then she surprised me with a free gladiator carriage. I think they accidentally shorted me a GWP hence the call but can’t really remember. I just remember how pleasant the older woman was on the phone. And the British accent was just icing on the cake. All customer service people should have British (or Australian) accents.

  37. It's week, factory, year. So 33S1 would be 33rd week of 2021 in factory S (Czech Republic, I believe). I didn't check but dimensions could be related to release date, with later releases having that info. And since older sets are more likely to retire... Or the Treehouse disappears 😉

  43. This has been an ongoing discussion…Walmart definitely needs to fire a developer or two for this abomination of an update. What finally worked for me (after multiple attempts), was deleting the app from my iPhone, restarting said phone, and then re-installing the app. For awhile, I had to do this every single time I entered a different Walmart, but now, the older version seems to be sticking around on my phone (also, turn off automatic app updates or the whole process starts over again…) Good luck!
