Some states locked down big box stores to only selling "essential" items.  People milling about and browsing for toys and electronics is not essential.

I had $100 in VIP bucks I've been sitting on debating what to buy for months.  Decided to use finally use it on the A-Wing.

"Smug"  What makes them smug?  They just seem like a happily married couple building LEGO for fun.  

Aslo, how cool is this? Tyler and Amy have made miniature versions of all their builds that people could easily recreate at home:

PIcked up a few custom figs at a con yesterday.  Man, the quality just keeps improving.   Grabbed Spider-Gwen, Miles Morales Spidey & Bob Ross Deadpool.  

 

Bob Ross Deadpool might be going in the Parisan Restaurant Art Studio.  lol

Parents today are the biggest fucking problem, they are simply assholes who shouldn't be allowed to breed. 

Over-dramatic much?

 

You have zero context of this father and daughter interaction.    I have two daughters and they have CIty sets, Creator sets, Star Wars sets, Disney Sets, Minecraft sets, DC sets, Architecture sets, and yes, plenty of Friends sets.

Maybe they discussed new Friends sets in the car and dad was reminding her she wanted to look at something particular in that line.  Maybe she's collected Friends in the past and is just growing out of it and he wanted to make sure she didn't want to give them a look anyway.  

 

Sheesh.

Mr. Gingerbread has quite the 70's porn-stache.

I picked up the Friends Central Perk set this morning when the LEGO store opened.  There were three other people buying it as well.  They might have a hit on their hands.

Loved Friends when it was on and still love it now.  Watched re-runs almost nightly up until I finally cut the cable cord a month ago.  It's aged remarkably well.  So I'm totally in on launch day.  The price is phenomenal.

 

Seems like most here didn't watch enough because they explained the arpartments in the show after getting flack about it.  Monica and Rachel were subletting from Monica's grandmother.  Chandler always made bank so he could afford his apartment on his own (with Joey helping out when he could).   Ross & Phoebe always had modest apartments.  

 

So now I just need some aspiring Ideas designer to design a Cheers set and a Seinfeld set of Jerry's apartment.

Nah, LEGO aisles are continually flooded with kids sets. It's just that the bigger ones get social/media attention because of the "wow" factor.

Not sure if anyone else is getting Steamboat Willie but it's already LIVE and qualifies for Double VIP Points until midnight.

It is 751 pieces which puts it about $.11 a piece which isn't terrible.  It just doesn't look like a 750 piece set.

Went to the LEGO store in Chicago and they had the Wind Turbine setup and running.  Very cool.  Not sure I'd have a place for it though.

How does Brick Bank compare to the other modular buildings? I’ve got Green Grocer and the Old Fishing Store (technically not one, but comparable) and at one point owned the theater, cafe corner and grand emporium. Are there any must haves from those that just retired (bank, detective, etc) or the more recent modulars? Thinking about picking a couple up over the next few months.

 

Of the most recent ones, the Detective Office is probably my favorite.  Assembly Square and Parisian Restaurant would round out a top 3.

 

That being said I have the Bank & Diner but haven't built either yet.
