Brickworld part ordering issues

4 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Seems like recently things have been falling apart, and last minute purchasing has become danger zone timing. I have been trying to quickly finish up my MOC in LDD and start purchasing all the pieces, but with bricklink down and then many issues after that, I have only managed to put less than half the orders in (roughly 20,000 pieces). Until the Wanted-list features are back up, there is no reasonable way to purchase the other 32,000 pieces that I can think of. With a little more than a week left until Brickworld, and the Wanted-list supposedly not being fixed until at least late tomorrow, it seems as if this project might not get finished in time. Truly unfortunate, considering I have been working on this for over 2 and 1/2 years.

Yes, many things were done too late. Though to be honest I tried my best to get things done as quick as possible while trying to keep good results, but with the obvious hurdles of creating large project MOCs and the many "things that can go wrong will go wrong", the pivotal purchase point came and went, most likely missed.

So, with that, I just wanted to share where this project is, maybe hear some other horror stories of things that went wrong in either MOC building, or preparing/setting up for events, and possibly even ask if anyone has any good ideas, tips, helpful suggestions, etc.

Not sure if this is the best or right topic location, but since this is for Brickworld, I thought it might be somewhat related.

(btw, the display is/was supposed to be part of the city below in my sig).

That's really too bad to hear. Seems the universe had it out for you this time :cry_sad: I hope you could maybe finish one module to bring to BW, and have a whole year to get the rest built with much less stress for next year :classic:

MANUALLY. That is the word to describe how I just purchased those pieces. Ouch. 47 hours of purchasing, and over 50 stores, but its done. hopefully everything arrives in time. Some stuff already coming. Wish me luck!

I do all of my purchasing manually on Blink. I've got to learn to use the wanted section to save myself time. I hope it all arrives and you can get it all done. Wishing the best!
