    My Case Against Artificial Rarity

    But you could bricklink Velma for a decent price at some point if you wanted to where as you cannot bricklink con exclusives without spending a ridiculous amount of money.

    My Case Against Artificial Rarity

    Its not about missing out. Its about it not being produced in sufficient quantities to give people an option to buy it. I missed out on a lot of cool sets in my dark ages. That kind of sucks but maybe I can find them reasonable at a garage sale, 2nd hand store, or online. I waited too long to buy the first Antman set and I missed out. I regretted not buying it when I had the chance. I made the decision not to buy it when I was holding it in my hands because I thought the shelf life would have been longer. It wasn't butthurt. I missed out and it was my fault. But when Lego makes something so incredibly rare intentionally and it is something very desirable to a large part of the Lego community then it is reasonable to be upset over a bad decision like that. A lot of Comic Con exclusive figures do not have a similar official figure available to buy at retail. Your assumption that people are "butthurt" shows that you don't really understand the point of the conversation.

    [MOC] IKEA Furniture Store

    Beautifully executed! Easily recognizable and I have never been to an IKEA store or own anything from one. @CopperTablet that is a great idea. I would love to see that as well.

    My Case Against Artificial Rarity

    I have to say I do agree with you. At one point I was 1000% a Lego purist. Everything that was not genuine Lego found its way to the trash or a garage sale. I am a collector as well and I can spend a reasonable amount of money to complete my collection. The artificial rareity you described drives me crazy as well. Because of that, if I find a reasonably priced, acceptable quality knockoff I am willing to buy it. I would prefer to buy Lego brand exclusively but when they make decisions as a company to create ridiculously, stupid, unnecessary rare, expensive items I will gladly buy a knockoff.

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Does anyone know anything about the LBM Bat Shooter ploybag 40301. I never saw it in the US and it is the only set from the theme that I am missing.

    Great find! I would have preferred the Green Lantern version of Batman but this one is cool also

    (MOC) Some Arcade machines I've been working on

    Everything looks so perfect! These are amazing. Might look good in one of the upper floors of downtown diner until you get around to making a custom building.

    How would you guys feel about a Masters of the Universe line?

    If Lego were to make sets I would definitely buy them. Grew up on that show and toyline. Last I knew another company had the rights to it though.

    [MOC] Food truck alternative build from the set 60182

    Very nice alternate build! Looks like it could be an actual set.

    Strap yourself in guys. CMF Game is landing back on EB!

    I can't wait! These games are very enjoyable. Hazmat Guy is my favorite though!

    [MOC] Mer-Man BrickHeadz

    I really dislike brickheadz but I do love MoTU and Mer-man is easily recognizable. Great job!

    [MOC] THE QUEEN BRICKTORIA PUB

    Beautiful and stunning! Love every detail inside and out!
  15. The one I found was on the left side near the middle. If you get a sealed box and other people are looking to grab some just pull out the whole left side and feel each til you find it. The employee at Target brought up a new box for me to look through on an unused checkout lane. After I finished grabbing what I wanted she hung the rest up in a few checkout lanes.
