    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    I’ve had surprising luck on Mercari and Facebook Marketplace

    LEGO Ninjago 2021

    I super relate to this - basically got back into Lego at the beginning of COVID and Ninjago was one of the major themes I was excited to catch up on; 37 sets later (according to Brickset), my wallet is much lighter but I've caught many of my favorites!

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    Great breakdown! I was doing this sorting them on a 32x32 but appreciate you including the new sets

    VIDIYO - Universal Music 2021

    I’m an outlier - adult with the whole first wave. I’m glad to see my “bet” paid off with a great second wave for me. I just feel like these are peak lego; wild designs of lighthearted themes in often garish colors. Just joyful to look at

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2021

    Really interesting sets -- though I actually think overall I will end up preferring Wave 1 - my initial guess tier list (based on obviously no real experience with Wave 3, but owning nearly all wave 1 and half wave 2): Monkie King Warrior Mech Monkie Kid's Team Secret HQ The Legendary Flower Fruit Mountain Red Son's Inferno Truck Pigsy's Food Truck Demon Bull King Monkie Kid's Cloud Jet Monkie Kid's Lion Guardian Monkie Kid's Team Dronecopter Monkie Kid's Cloud Roadster Red Son's Inferno Jet Spider Queen's Arachnoid Base White Dragon Horse Jet Monkie Kid's Cloud Bike Sandy's Speedboat The Flaming Foundry Iron Bull Tank White Horse Dragon Bike which gives an average placement of: 1 7.5 2 13.6 3 10 I like the Guardian quite a bit even though I get the critique -- I just imagine it as the Warrior Mech's pet and then it becomes must by! Leaving space for Fruit Mountain/Dronecopter/Arachnoid base to impress me more, but I suspect the small sets may actually be where I'm surprised...

    Really hoping the demons show up in another set; don't super-love the cloud roadster and would be excited about more villains vehicles...

    andddd now it's a Day 1 purchase - COVID brought me back to lego and I've been building a combination of ~10yo sets with my son and modern sets for "my son" (me) -- it's incredible the differences in both building techniques and level of detail in modern sets. I had forgotten how frail some sets are even in themes you'd expect rigidity - looking at you City construction vehicles!

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    Seeing the new Chinese New Year sets spoiled — that new garden looks suspiciously close to the description of the supposed ninjago city garden; maybe not piece count, but has full plate and half plate combo

    @RichardGoring I can tell you I paid much more; 450 is definitely low side of prices I’ve seen recently for new

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    Richard I'm in the same boat! Rediscovered my passion for Lego during COVID times. I bit the bullet and paid to get both City and Docks during the pandemic; I figure they'll only continue to stay at current price or even go up once more people find out about Gardens.

    REVIEW: 80009 Pigsy's Food Truck

    great review! I loved the weapon storage options in the secret base, looks like this one followed suit! :P

    LEGO Monkie Kid 2020

    Just finished Monkie Kid Team's Secret HQ -- fun build overall, though I do wish the rear clips were much stronger. Wierdly one of the things I was most happy about was weapon storage for every accessory; clips abound! Maybe this has been true for a while but as one of the first since I've put together since Chima it was a pleasant surprise; I loved everything having a place. Maybe the Marie Kondo stuff is really getting to me...
  14. Ah I missed the user profiles ! Thanks so much. Have not been sent the new peices link yet
  15. I'm at a loss; I've tried several installers claiming to be 4.3.11 but still stuck on 777 Brick Version...
