  1. We all love the great discussions, MOC's, and news here on Eurobricks, but I'm wondering what are some other favorite sites/blogs for Lego? My 2 personal favorites happen to be brickset.com and the new elementary blog. Brickset always seems to have great news and is a fantastic resource for looking up old sets and parts. I'm not part of the forums over there so I can't speak for the discussions they have, but I'm definitely a fan of the site. The new elementary is a fantastic blog detailing new parts and some old ones aswell. It goes into uses and is just generally a good resource for all things Lego elements. So guys what's your favorites? I can think of a few more but I'll see where this post goes.

    Special Lego VIP Shopping Event 2015

    That makes sense if it's a managers invite as I am pretty friendly with the manager of the store I got invited to

    Special Lego VIP Shopping Event 2015

    I don't think it has to do with how much you spent. Last year I spent a fair amount of money at my main store and got an invite to that store. This year I got an invite to a store I barely go to and haven't spent a dime in this year. I haven't spent much on Lego this year at all actually

    Special Lego VIP Shopping Event 2015

    I got one from a store I barely go to as well. Unfortunately I was rather underwhelmed last year so probably won't be going. Finances also have something to do with it as well.

    LEGO Ideas Discussion

    I'm surprised the ISS didn't pass. Most of them seemed like rediculous long shots.

    Disney Collectible Minifigures Series 1 Discussion

    Sounds pretty cool, I'd love to see something from The Incredibles!
  7. That's pretty impressive. Does that include the tables? That's such an important part of running a layout. You could have the greatest possible layout, but if 6+not working the crowd, especially the wide eyed kiddos, you're not doing it right. What a great piece! It chops it up a little bit, but 1x2 jumpers combined with 1x2 tiles work very well too. Great layout too by the way! I'm big fan of the corner hardware store.

    Christmas!

    It was 65 degrees in Boston today, I begrudgingly put the lights up before Thanksgiving because who knows how many more decent days to do it we will have.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I doubt it would be a police precient, the Detective Office pretty much has that. I honestly don't know what the next one could be. It seems like Jamie wants to go story driven, and I'm not sure what the next building could be. Maybe a bakery with an apartment upstairs that has a child's birthday going on and needs a cake. Who knows!

    Exclusive access store event

    So just left the event...very underwhelming. No special discount, but we did get a goodie bag with a S@H catalog, gift wrap and the holiday turkey set. At checkout everyone got the new holiday skating rink set and got to choose between the snowman and reindeer. Overall, not really worth it. At least I only had a 15 minute drive. I did get double points though and a sweet little badge.

    Exclusive access store event

    It seems to me that a few people may be going to the Burlington, MA store. I'll be there, would anyone want to meet up before or after?

    The creator bike shop or any friends set

    The Brick seperator Virus

    I've noticed that, but it seems to damage itself when trying to pry up tiles.

    Christmas!

    Let's get through November first. It's too early for me right now.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I'm thinking it will be fairly close to the pet shop in size. That's just a guess though.

    Exclusive access store event

    I got an invite and there's no way I spent that much. More like $500-$700

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    My conspiracy theory is that we got two sets out of Ideas this time because Lego knew that the next review sets won't ever pass
