  1. What was the last movie you watched?

    There was a twist ending? I thought that (with respect to Robin Williams) this movie was better than the original. 2 nitpicks however: 5 players but 4 controllers, and the guy is a fan of Metallica AND Pink Floyd?
  2. If you were paying attention, you would realise I was talking about Australia and Tasmania (which is less than an hour from a major city like Melbourne, unlike the place you are thinking of) Turns out TRU Australia is not closing for now. But they aren't doing well so it may well be curtains for them before long, too.
  3. If I was formerly a TRU customer I would become a customer somewhere else. Apart from the immediate losses due to the bankrupcy, I don't see how TLG is really in such a bad long-term position over it. It's not like people need to walk into a dedicated toy shop to discover or remember Lego. All their products are available elsewhere too. Particularly in USA with so many Lego stores. Maybe business will go up in those. An entirely different story for other companies & products. Also, they wouldn't deliver to any islands. So for those who lived in the state that is entirely islands and has no physical store, even online purchases weren't possible. Remarkable.
  4. Future Castle Sets?

    They might appeal to one side of Castle-fanry, but not to building factions/armies or to augmenting a theme collection with new sets, so that's too bad. If you just want heaps of useful bricks to build dioramas or complicated models with, then you are a bit more happy, in fact there are plenty of resources for that in other themes & Bricklink, as already discussed plenty of times.
  5. The Future of Lego Space. (opinions, ideas, discussion)

    I hope you are talking about Lego
  6. Voltron & Ship in Bottle IDEAS approved

    6 pilots. (Keith, Lance, Hunk, Pidge, Allura, Sven/Shiro) Sven is expendable but if they want it to tie in with the current show, 6 is a must. $200 is what I put in the Ideas form, in answer to "how much do you think this will cost"
  7. Haha yes, I just recently changed to the Autumn banner that others were enjoying in context 6 months ago. There's a bit of smug satisfaction to the feeling, like beating the system
  8. Star Wars Rebels

    Same. And I knew everyone was going to be pissed off about it too I didn't like how the wolves went from doing whatever they felt like to "sic em, boy" pet dogs And I didn't like how pretty much everyone survived not just the episode, but the whole OT. The end summary was rather bizarre. Everything should've just led up to Rogue One and resolved to that point
  9. It hasn't always been available
  10. You are missing about $2000 from your total. These retired sets are stupidly expensive! You didn't read all of the instructions!
  11. The Future of Lego Space. (opinions, ideas, discussion)

    Man, it's a Spacey McSpacerocketface situation. The public decided... Too bad for actual Lego fans of science fiction & science non-fiction - the sort of people who think/dream about space all the time, not just as a 3 year old in a shopping mall revenue-raiser Next time maybe they will pick a "moments in space" set based on an adult sitting in a room with a full wallet dreaming about one day being able to buy a Space theme
  12. The Future of Lego Space. (opinions, ideas, discussion)

    That is the trophy style microfig - I already have stacks of the normal ones from years ago
  13. Star Wars Rebels
