    Which set should I buy?

    I've got a "15% Off" coupon for Toys R Us, and I'm not sure which set to use it on. The high prices at TRU drive me crazy, but I want to get one of the larger Star Wars sets, in order to maximize the saving. Which set should I get? 7962 Podracers set 7964 Republic Frigate 7965 Millenium Falcon I already have the 4504 MF from 2004. I already have 7665 Republic Cruiser. And I'm pretty "meh" about the podracers, but want the minifigs. Or should I just forget all of those and get the 7961 Sith Infiltrator, even though it's already overpriced before I even have to pay the TRU mark-up?

    What did you buy today?

    Stopped by Target on my lunch hour and picked up 8080 Undersea Explorer for $29.99 and the Ninjago polybag set. Checked the clearance aisle and found two LEGO game sets, 3836 Magikus for $2.62 and 3837 Monster 4 for $3.24 ... prices that were too good to pass up.
  5. A little off-topic, but I'm quoting from the article. That statement begs for a contest -- what can you build with your 62 bricks?

  7. Thanks for letting us all know about this program! I've never heard of it; but just spent the last couple of hours messing around on it and it's great. I'll be using it quite often.

    Best Theme Ever?

    It's hard to say. There may be themes I don't really care for, but within the theme is an outstanding set that I absolutely love. But since I have to pick, then based on a monetary scale alone I find Star Wars to be the best theme ever, since it has received most of my hard earned money.

    Review: 7597 Western Train Chase

    I finally got around to picking up this set. It's only the 2nd LEGO train I've ever built, and I gotta say I really like it. I understand the criticism about the engine being so fragile, but I finally got it put together and was very happy to see it fits on LEGO train tracks (I bought the new train station at the same time). Does anybody know if anyone has managed to fit it with RC or PF to make it chug along? I was hoping to use it around the Christmas tree this December.
  10. Everything's gone now. Thanks for the great trades!
  11. Looking for U.S. trades... All of my minifigs are still sealed in their bags, and I'd like any minifig I receive still sealed in its bag. I have for trading: Series 2 Traffic Cop (x5) Karate Champion (x2) Mime (x1) Pharaoh (x2) Ringmaster (x2) Surfer (x2) (PENDING) Vampire (x1) Witch (x4) My wants: Series 1 Cheerleader Deep Sea Diver (PENDING) Nurse <--priority Robot Space Man Series 2 Disco Dancer Skier (multiple) <-- priority (1 Pending, need more) Thanks for looking; if we can help each other out shoot me a PM, or email me at brhamaker AT yahoo DOT com
  12. Thanks for the replies guys, but I actually sold the 10182 in early August. I wish some of y'all had seen my post in early June -- didn't get any responses back then and figured it had just disappeared into the older topics in the BSTF forum. I guess this topic needs to be locked.

    What did you buy today?

    Haven't posted in a while, but over the past couple of weeks I picked up 8086 Droid Tri-Fighter on sale for $20 USD. I also bought the 3843 Ramses Pyramid game for me and the kids to play -- was not impressed and probably won't get anymore of the game sets. From eBay, I finally was able to get 8274 TECHNIC Combine Harvester for a reasonable price ... $65.00 USD, which is less than the original MSRP. I'm not a technic fan, but I used to drive a combine every summer on my grandparents farm in Oklahoma. Wanted to get it to go with the 7636 Combine Harvester I picked up last year.
