    LEGO Pet Peeves

    Bringing this back to pet peeves, one of mine is when TLG produces a cute hairstyle in a particular color for a specific character or license and then never uses the mold again. Look, I just really want Hobbit hair in black and blond.

    Year-Long Project: Through the Seasons

    I wasn't able to upload last week due to technical difficulties, so today you get a twofer: https://karalora.tumblr.com/post/171286721217/i-was-unable-to-upload-a-new-seasonal-tree-photo I think by next week, there will be some solid evidence of springtime on this tree!

    Year-Long Project: Through the Seasons

    Week 7: https://karalora.tumblr.com/image/170784133227 I couldn’t do the full update I had planned because the new parts I ordered didn’t arrive in time, so here’s something simpler. The ice from last week’s storm has melted…not only that, but some buds of new growth have emerged on the branches!

    Year-Long Project: Through the Seasons

    Week 6: https://karalora.tumblr.com/image/170510234062 A warm spell brought rain, melting away the snow…but that night brought a chill, turning the rain into sleet and freezing rain. The ground retained enough warmth to remain mostly clear, but the tree is covered with a thin coating of ice.

    Getting Rid of Old Colors

    The current auction ends tomorrow. So far I have no bids. Am I asking too much? If so, I'll drop it down when I renew the listing.

    Week 5: https://karalora.tumblr.com/image/170242830057 Weather conditions continue to be somewhat inconsistent. Between wind and passers-by, most of the icicles have gotten knocked off the tree. (It's been a hell of a week and I didn't have it in me to change the tree more than this.)

    Getting Rid of Old Colors

    If anyone is interested, I've put up the whole bunch of parts as a big lot on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/152883584645?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 I have to hedge my bets on pricing because of the potential cost of shipping, which is included.

    Week 4: https://karalora.tumblr.com/image/169978604752 Continuing intermittent mild thaw conditions have resulted in more icicles and generally degraded the quality of the snow. Some kids tried to build a snowman, but it just wouldn’t mound up properly and they quickly gave up…leaving the carrot they had been planning to use for the nose!

    Getting Rid of Old Colors

    I've actually pulled most of the old gray and brown since I've been discussing a sale privately with another member. Some of them may end up going back in, depending on what agreement we come to. On the other hand, I've been continuing to add this and that as I sort through my collection and make decisions about what I do and don't want to keep. For example, I put some small Adventurers sets and quite a few individual minifigs up today.

    Year-Long Project: Through the Seasons

    Looking at the three photos so far, I remember now that I decided to take the third from a slightly different angle than the first two to get a better perspective on the bird. I wish I had the luxury of setting up something permanent to take better photos, but I can't even leave the tree on the table where I have posed it so far. I just don't have enough space in here. :/

    Getting Rid of Old Colors

    I have all kinds of parts. You can see what I've uploaded so far in my Bricklink shop, Karalora's Brick Bargains, but there's lots more to come. I keep finding more as I sort! DM me if you might be interested in cutting to the chase and buying the lot off me. Once I have everything sorted, I'll weigh them up, take photos, etc., and we can negotiate.

    @Huaijozu I thank you for the suggestion, but I don't have access to a tripod...or a nice camera, for that matter.

    Year-Long Project: Through the Seasons

    I hadn't really given much thought to species...I suppose subconsciously I'm probably patterning it after the sweetgums that grow around here (Los Angeles) and are one of the few local trees to exhibit much in the way of seasonal changes.
