  2. Fell Beast. I really like this. It could be better of course with a more detailed head and cloth wings. But as is it fits well with the rest of LotR system scale sets. While not scene accurate I have him posed with Weathertop:

  3. After spending a week exploring Normandy, we spent a day wandering around Paris. Stopped in at the Les Halles store and saw their great builds of Notre Dame and the Arc de Triomphe. Nothing exclusive set wise and only bought the French Legoman luggage tag. More pics from Paris.

  5. Before you get too smarmy, almost every post in here is about first world problems. If that bothers you then I have to wonder why you even read the thread. After looking through your few posts, it seems that you are only here to be a troll and offer little to no help to anyone.

  6. I wonder when he'll learn that there isn't a bottomless pool of demand for retired LEGO and that he's shooting himself in the foot in the long run by creating more and more competition. I guess some lessons are harder learned than others.

  7. I want to build some of the newer Lego Technic Super Cars because they look so good. However, the last Technic set I built was in 2014 the 42022 Hot Rod, fun fact it was the first Lego set of any theme that used the Lego builder app which makes it much easier for me. So I figured after 10 years I would give Technic another try but didn’t want to start off with such a challenging set like the Peugeot that I have in my backlog now, so I went with the Bugatti Bolide in LE Agile Blue. It took me about 3 times the amount of time to build compared to the similarly sized McLaren MP4 that I had just built prior. Even when focusing and following the instructions closely I made several mistakes some using the wrong but similar element and some with pin placement, there is definitely a huge learning curve with Technic for me, hopefully I get better. The end product looks and feels flimsy and unfinished and you can’t see the motor which is actually quite good. Stickers are plentiful but enhance the model. Not sure if this color with limited availability will do well post retirement as the set is exactly the same as the yellow version that can be had for 50% off. Build: 5 Play: 7 Display: 5 Value: 6 Not sure if I will go on a Technic binge next or back to system.

  10. I also got this to go up from 25k. I'm considering clicking the "Request a limit increase" to see how many zeroes they will add on.

  12. Here's a good link to analyze the performance of all the GWPs, Insider Rewards, In-Store Promos, etc -- pretty much everything we discuss in this forum's topic. https://www.bric*economy.com/analysis-subthemes (replace the * with a "k" 😬)

  15. genuinely interested is anyone here getting this book, has pre ordered it or will pay $150 for it once it is out ? I think I read that they will have a cheaper version without the vault items of it available later or perhaps it won't : ) nothing about this that I can tell says it is limited. is anyone concerned it will run out in the next few months ? https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/the-force-of-creativity-5008878

  16. I am actually headed to this tour in October, if all goes well, I will have (2) copies of this set and I only want one, so maybe if someone really wants one here we can work it out outside of eBay.

  18. Best looking one yet. No interest in the trophy but the build on JV looks good but will just get one off of eBay for under $30 in a month vs $150 buyin. Need the double dip or better to make Lego dot com prices worth it anymore.

  19. It means he is not hot on the gwp but will go in if he can double dip. Trophy requires City, Friends, etc . . .

  23. Per the BricK Fan the Target VIP receipt program that basically stopped working will be no more at the end of this month. Jules Verne is live but I’m waiting until the 28th for the double dip with the Fireworks GWP.

  24. Well, if that Daphne is from the Mystery Mansion and not the Haunted Lighthouse there could be a Velma in there. Might be worth just to sort through for the figs.

  25. oh man I am tired just imagining the sorting process. Just say no!

  26. Unless you like sorting I'd offer $100. But that's me. I hate sorting. Even small batches can take hours. I did this just recently with my own LotR sets that were split up in bins. Even if you find a few gems in there most likely your time will be worth more than the $250.

  29. 60lbs for $250 is not bad, especially if it's older sets that don't look like a rainbow unicorn threw up. It's a lot of work but I love the old castle stuff... Anyway, it looks like this chess set is there: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?S=853373-1#T=P The red horse is from set 70402 and I see the dragon from 70403.

  30. You should be able to search for that LPN in your return reports. Then once you do, open up the standard return dispute process, and attach pictures of the set you got, and what the set SHOULD be, and tell them that they sent back the wrong/incorrect set. I suspect you would get reimbursed.

  32. I just see a labor of love. A sick part of me just likes sorting out a bulk lot. Even if you can identify some valuable sets, it's never worth the effort. I recently did a Star Wars lot that my sister found in a garbage bin. This mother was just trowing it out. All the figs were there and most of the parts. I kinda got excited and offered her a $100 for the lot. I had a lot of the missing parts and I then brick linked the rest. Straight dollars I made out, but time wise I lost. I'm actually in the process of putting all my kid's Lego back into sets so they will have for their kids or to rediscover some day. Most of the sets are mostly built so it's not totally from scratch, but it's a ton of work. "If" I valued my time I would be better off just buying them completed sets off Ebay 😛

  33. Technic Dump Truck. Absolutely amazing! If you want to try out Technic or for the kids this is a great set to do so. It looks great and has 2 functions and 2 builds for $10. I still need to work on the technique of assembling beams with multiple pins onto moving parts this is just not easy for me. Wish I had gotten the concrete mixer. Build: 8 Play: 9 Display: 6 Value: 10 Up next either the Technic Batcycle or Mack Truck

  35. At one point years ago I don't think my account had limits. But then a couple years ago they changed the way seller account worked or migrated something and brough my limits down. Haven't looked at it in a while:

  38. yes, ships like that exactly. The character has just been added to the Galaxy of Heroes game and I assume we will be chasing the ship in a few months after we can unlock the pilot/crew member.

  39. I like the Funwhole solution. Use real common batteries (CR2032?) and DON'T include them. It may cause a little belly-aching at first but City builders and builder of battery sets will just get used to having the batteries on hand. A 10-pack of CR2032s are $5.99 at Amazon.

  40. Endured the following for a BrickLink sale over the past week or so: My replies to the buyer are in bold. “Hello I like to ask you if you can offer an discount or free shipping for buying multiple sets from you. I don’t mind to wait so you can choose the slowest and cheapest shipping service just pack it good thanks a lot” Thank you for ordering multiple sets from my store and for asking about offering either a discount or free shipping. I am a small family run business and am not able to offer discounts or free shipping. The most economical shipping method is $21.35 using USPS Ground Advantage. If you feel this is too much and you wish to cancel your order, I will work with you to cancel it. If you wish for me to invoice your order, please let me know. “Hello. I understand very good we are an veteran run business would you able to sell it directly and we can pay by PayPal friends (no fees for you ) so we would at least save $17 on taxes ?" Thank you for your reply e-mail sent directly to my e-mail address. What you are asking violates BrickLink's Terms of Service and I cannot do what you are asking. I then quoted the following topics from BrickLink's Terms of Service: Buying and Selling Offenses Fee Avoidance Using user contact information obtained from BrickLink or the Site or using any feature of the Site to offer to sell items outside of the Site. This contact form should in no way be used for soliciting purposes and conducting business either offering items for sale or requesting items to be sold that would circumvent submitting an order in a seller's store. Maybe other sellers have done this for you, but I cannot not. ------ The buyer paid for the order, it was shipped and then following message arrived yesterday: “Hi package arrived but sadly with an big huge dent on top of the box ! will email you picture kinda lucky only the Ninjago got beaten up badly the other are fine ! thanks god” Glad your package arrived. Sorry it was damaged in transit. Never had have happened before. I suggest contacting the United States Postal Service (USPS) and filing a claim with them. ----- NOTE: The box was dented and not sure how it got that way. ---- Thanks for reading my rant and I am waiting for the inevitable buyer negative feedback.
