    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Been quite a year for SW purchases with me, especially last month. 75345 501st Clone Trooper BP 75359 332nd Ashoka’s Clone Tropper BP 75348 Mandalorian Fang Fighter vs. TIE Interceptor and awaiting to be shipped 75362 Ashoka Tano’s T-6 Jedi Shuttle I was trying to stick to Phase 1(and ARF) army building...but I found 75345 cheap & the 332’s are just cool...nothing wrong with a slight detour.
  3. I just finished building all the contents of the calendar & I got a repeat day. I’ll spoiler tag it for those who like to be surprised by the doors.

    New VIP system

    Is that for the whole of the sale? I can’t just redeem the 3 then go back & do it again? Or I can just get normal priced $5 ones I suppose. I have the points to get a $100 & $20(without taking the $5 sale into it). I could get the 3 discount ones & three regular $5 & still come out ahead....I think? Haha...I don’t do the discount thing that often, if it’s not obvious enough.

    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    Oh man...that’s super weird then, that hairpiece isn’t even tied to someone in the set. Do the different departments not talk to each other?! Come on! Yeah, a non green accented hairpiece would also be welcomed.

    New VIP system

    Does anyone have an idea how many, if there is a limit, $x discounts you can redeem in store? After I redeem for the $100 off I’ll have 2,720 left which I was planning on getting a $20 discount. But with the $5 being 162 pats each I could buy a lot...16 of them. Will that work? I’ve never done this many(doubt anyone else has either...).

    LEGO Store "Build a Minifigure"

    Totally agree. I love both hairpieces & would love to see them in more colors. Mateo’s hair in black would’ve been perfect for Lee Jordan(although the hobbit hairpiece in black is a welcomed addition). We definitely need Izzie’s hair in more realistic colors.
  8. What a fantastic set! Another one loaded with character(both minifig & buildings)! I didn’t realize we were gonna be getting such a sprawling Megaopolis, I love it. Hopefully it’ll as well priced as Lanterns was...and that LEGO would finally put these sets back in stores.

    Unpopular Opinions about LEGO

    I agree & disagree. I agree with you on the color part...I’m not sure why we need three shades of azure(along with all the other shades of blue we also have. I’ve only started MOCing & I still keep my set parts together, in most cases so the wide array of parts doesn’t bother me even if I do find it a bit unnecessary. Where I disagree(although this was later addressed) is you just have to get him certain sets to fill out parts he may use. Classic boxes have quite a variety of parts in all kinds of price ranges.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    You mean you wouldn’t be excited to get those animals in a set?! Seeing that picture comforts me a bit. It’s missing the statues/gardens...but I like physically seeing the color palette. I’m still not sure about a green museum...but this isn’t bad looking.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I’m definitely excited for it, the description has potential. I love olive green but it’s not what I picture a naturally history museum color to be. I trust the designers though & can’t wait to see it.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    They’ve released a UCS alongside a Modular in the past. It was Slave 1 & Detective’s Office. Trust me, January 1st sees plenty of traffic for at least the last decade. I just can’t see any reason to suddenly now change the release date. If they wanted Christmas sales out of it...why now? It’s not like they’re hard up for sales. It just doesn’t make any sense. I love olive green but on a museum? Odd choice but I’m open to it. The white pillars will definitely be striking against it. Maybe it works well with the little garden areas on either side of the steps.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I’m sorta in that boat. Cafe Corner will always be one of my favorites simply for the fact that it was first. However, I feel like Green Grocer is the perfect balance. A nice detailed ground floor that has a lot of windows & not much going on inside. I’m not big on interiors since I rarely see them after I’m done or am rearranging. I appreciate them during the build because it means does things up a bit though & there is some fun bits in there. Same. I love the multiple buildings on a baseplate as it feels like a full street scene happening.

    Wizarding World 2023 - Rumors & Discussion

    The more I look at Gringotts perched atop the vaults, I’m starting to come around to it. I won’t ever love it, but I’m fine with it. Even still, it’s (sort of) a $200 waste & it’s just going to sit in the corner without a purpose.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I’m pretty easy going when it comes to Modulars. There isn’t one I don’t like. A friend though has pretty strong opinions of dislike on a handful of them. I’ve only ever gone so far as saying Grand Emporium is a boring looking building...but that’s because it’s a shopping mall. It’s not like they’re exactly known for their beautiful architecture.
