Voted for ISS but Stitch is pretty cool.

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.

^^ Fishing Store is a great build.  Highly recommended especially at that price.  


Also, I finally built the Ship in a Bottle set last week.  Very cool looking but as far as builds go, pretty dull.  Also the inflated piece count (300 studs) is ridiculous.

So I've spent most of this year doing a LEGO tear down of my kids' sets and piecing them together for 100% completion and boxing them back up (for their future children?)   This has been a slow and monotonous process.   Finding every little Friend's bow or butterfly has been interesting. My girls have collected a ridiculous amount of sets in the last 8-10 years and I've never broken down any until this year.  We even moved a few years ago and just put all the assembled sets in tubs(worked okay).     I've done a ton of the Friends sets, some city sets and miscellaneous stuff  so far.


This week I tackled all their Jurassic World sets.  They had the whole collection (big sets, polybags, TRU exclusive builds, etc).  So all that being said, out of these dozen or so sets I was only missing 5 pieces.  I was pretty excited about that. Bricklink to the rescue! 




Now it's on to the Friends Amusement park collection (which they had most, if not all of).  


As for builds I went all in and the League has been United:


Batman and Superman didn't come with a printed plate for the base.  Kinda dumb. I probably just need to remove them off the other four.

I still have the Sea Cow, Saturn V, Ship in a Bottle, and a dozen SW Constraction sets waiting to be built.  I have nowhere to put them once they're built though until I finish my basement.

Looks like the Jurassic Park set is already selling out ... ordered one at full price rather than waiting for a sale. Had hoped to get it for less, but I like some of the custom Jurassic Park stickers and pieces, so what the heck.

Speaking of custom, anyone seen any custom JP minifigs anywhere?  I'd love an Ian Malcom, Hammond and Nedry.  Haven't had much luck finding anything on ebay.

I'm kinda 'meh on the JW sets, but I'm definitely down for the JP set for Alan, Ellie, Tim & Lex.    When do I need to keep my eyes peeled for these?

Finished the Old Fishing Store with my daughter this week.  Wow, what a phenomenal set.  It might be our favorite.  I thought the price was a bit steep, but man this set packs a ton of little details in there.  The sheer number of special/unique pieces is incredible.  Highly recommended.

My daughter and I finished the Detective Office build.   Lots of cool little stuff in there.  The pool hall is awesome.  Ace Brickman's office is excellent.  Great set.

Who's getting the MF? I read on tbf that there's may be an incentive to buying it early, may include some early access to something next year. 

So spending $800 now might give me access to spend more money next year?  LEGO is the best!

Found the First Order Stormtrooper constraction set at Target for $13.  Used a $10 gift card from buying school supplies.  $5 Score!  Get home to put it in the stash, and I already had one.  Damnit!   :lol:

Seven figures?! Seven?! There isn't even a Luke. Everyone who ever step foot on the ship should be in the set for that price.


There you go.  A third "crew" of Lando and Nien Numb.
