Haven't really felt like building anything and also trying to save money. Dozens of people I know are infected and four of my friends are ER doctors who are treating covid patients every day. Fortunately no one I know has died yet. It's pretty bad though. I think people in less populated areas don't quite have it in their faces as much as we do here. 731 dead yesterday alone. Sorry to be a bummer.

I remember when I was a kid you could put two Mega Bloks pieces together and watch as they slowly came apart from each other. I assume the brand has gotten better since then?

Going to start building Ninjago City soon. It’ll be the largest set I’ve ever built, I think. Hope everyone has a good new year.

What themes were on clearance? Looking for NinjaGo, cheap Hidden Side and Harry Potter sets, and the Space City sets primarily.

The Walmart I went to had a ton of shelf space for clearance but almost all of the sets had been cleared out. I got:

 

Overwatch D.Va - $19

Ninjago Titan Mech - $49

Hidden Side Shrimp Boat - $15

LEGO Movie 2 Ultrakatty - $15

 

They also had a Toy Story RC car for $5 and some Minecraft, Star Wars, and City on clearance. Oh just remembered the Quinjet was $49.

Here's a video that shows the (very lacking) interior of the Bitch Books (BB). It seems that the top floor isn't enclosed and that both sides have beds... outside?
 

Fortunately the building is fully enclosed. See the 360 degree view here: https://www.brothers...-bookshop-news/

The mini promo Gingerbread House apparently has 499 pieces. I know they're pretty much all 1x1, but I'm squinting at that build and still not seeing where all those pieces went.

Love LEGO's website. My entire order history is blank now. Excellent work good job.

Instead of buying BrickLink, LEGO should have bought a book about coding and maybe a few extra servers. Their website is one of the worst e-commerce sites that still exist in 2019. Just insanely bad.

Today's deals are bad: https://www.lego.com...onday-toy-deals

 

When I saw the sale list a couple days ago I stupidly thought "The Bedrock Adventures" was going to be the Flintstones set.

If you buy the Disney Train you get quad points. You will get 8580 points because it was already double points this month. It be $65 in reward points.

Damn, looks like they fixed it so now it's just the regular 2x.

The new Hidden Side sets are good.

 

The new Star Wars sets are bad.

 

The new Marvel sets are bad.

 

The new Ninjago sets are good.

 

The Trolls sets are good-bad.

 

The new City sets... honestly parents who are buying their kids police toys in 2019 live in a different world from me so my opinion is completely irrelevant.

LEGO on Instagram has released the new Troll sets.

https://brickset.com...-sets-revealed!

*If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all.*

...

There are new musical note pieces and HUGE new hot air balloon pieces.

Not gonna lie, I am excited to get a bunch of these on clearance, roll up, and make a Burning Man MOC.

Cloud city is down to $240 on Amazon, time to get it or wAit?

It's down to $204. You'll have to start the checkout process to see the price (it should say Multi-Buy Discount -$40 in your cart).

 

Add another $7 or $8 item from this list (https://www.amazon.c..._A2H0RBR8EKKLNW) like the Benny's space pack and that will take another $10 off your order, so you can get Cloud City and another small set for right around $200.
