  2. Late entry I know due to account issues, but I may as well post it as I made it a while back. A tree so big it's hard to fit through the front door... always fun figuring that out!

    If any UKers are interested I have a big lot of spare bricks that I'll never need and are just taking up space. Just pay postage (should be £2.90), or I'm looking for the Shades, Chrome Mark 42, and KF906 Iron Man suits if anyone has spares. Send me a PM and I'll reply ASAP

    Don't suppose anyone in the UK has a spare Iron Man Mark 15 Sneaky figure? Mine came with very wonkily printed eyes... I have a fair few spare Iron Men bits so I'm happy to trade for just the helmet. Got a big ol' wish list of other things I'm after:
  5. Nope! I got lucky last year and got several sets of Batman capes and undead soldier capes from LotR. Worth checking!

    LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Adore the Republic Fighter Tank. As it is probably my favourite EU/PT vehicle and I already have two of the last one, I'll have to get at least two of these as well. The Clone Gunner is fantastic, wish there was a second included! Aayla is gorgeous, hope she has a double sided face with a calm expression. Transformation set is good too though it's a shame Palps isn't a new figure based off his more red RotS costumes. All TFA sets are poor (I'd never like them anyway as I though the film was crap) apart from a figure or two e.g. Guavians, and a couple of new pieces like the riot shield and trans clear wings. The Quadjumper is a stupid set to make when they haven't covered half the material in AotC... I can see that sitting on shelves for the next five years in the discount section. The calendar has no PT things in there so I'll skip it unless it goes on sale. Freemakers sets offer a couple of great new figures! Intrigued by the hunter droid and McQuarrie. Bounty Hunters set is a good little pack, though I would have preferred a larger build with the same figures and a new battle pack instead with trooper types we haven't been able to get easily in large quantities yet e.g. 501st /327th legions and other Clone units, revamped Rebel Fleet Troopers etc... All in all I'll probably get the three smaller sets and Bricklink any other things that interest me. Gotta save up for the Superhero stuff! EDIT: Just noticed Aayla's other face. Fantastic!

    Some Rude Moderators?

    As you said yourself, the SW forum is not 'pretty'. I hardly post on EB anymore because of the sorts of things these mods have to deal with every day, despite numerous warnings to stop. The level of 'discussion' in the rumour thread is incredibly annoying, and people get away with far too much IMO. Simply using google, the front page of the topic containing information, taking a few minutes to read previous pages or use the search function, or realising life isn't about having a high post count or when you can buy a LEGO set would cut down the number of pages in the thread by half. IMO what Stash said was completely fair, and tbh I'm very surprised some obvious repeat offenders haven't been banned yet. Some members have even been lucky enough to be going in and out of the chamber a couple of times without being banned. I remember back in the day that when people were put in the chamber once, they changed for good or didn't come back. It's clearly not due to the mods, but the people posting. People nowadays don't seem to listen unless it's a hard warning or threat, I'm sure there were at least three warnings prior to Stash's post from other mods. It must be very frustrating to deal with this sort of behaviour on a forum meant for AFOLs. I know if I was a moderator the ban hammer would be coming down hard, but that's why I'll never be a moderator.

    Hmm, maybe I won't bother then. What stores do you guys recommend that always have good shipping times and good quality figures? You are experts compared to me! Basically trying to get all the Iron Man and Batman variants as well as anything else that looks good! Off the top of my head and a quick google I need SY605, Igor, Bleeding Edge, Mark 3, and the new Decool chrome ones. Pretty sure I have a spare set of SY262 if anyone wants to trade? Edit: Also just remembered that I have a massive amount of spare minifigure parts (arms, hands, legs, bases etc) from whatever sets I got last time

    Typical... spent ages adding items to the basket and I've been after most of them for ages Care to elaborate a bit? Did the order not arrive or something? Anyone else had similar issues?

    Anyone ordered from the store TreasureCase on AliExpress? Thinking about placing an order from them, but I can't see if any of the feedback is from people in the UK...

    Star Wars

    In a way I wish I could have been there to see when it all started, because the many feats and the hype the original films achieved is astounding. Not sure how it was in the UK though, but I'm sure it was crazy in the US. I'm very happy to have grown up with the Prequels though; the opening scene to RotS will always make me tear-up! The PT was insanely popular and hyped with my generation too, I think it was easy for the older fans and criticisers to not see that, which is a shame. I'm glad so many people love TFA, even though I am not as fond of it as I would like to be. But hey, at least all the movies have greatly touched each generation, and while there are arguments, there is nothing that everyone whole heartedly agrees is awful!
