Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Monorail. Monorail. Mono-

Motherfuckin' eBay. People. Let me preach.

As a kid, I wanted that Lego Monorail moon base thing.

You know. This Lego Monorail moon base thing;

6991_brickset.jpg

Alas, no room and no money. But now I have the room, and the disposable income I get for being a student. It's go time on the monorail situation.

Or so I thought.

Lego don't keep manufacturing their back catalogue I guess. That's news to me, but OK. eBay then, yeah?

This here auction, this auction I was about to win? Last second, outbid, and 5 minutes later, the object of my desires is relisted. Could the blatant self buyer be any more blatant?

In other news, LEGO YEAH.

I'm buying lots of Lego right now. My baby brother is a destructive prick, and I think a little Lego time with me is just what he needs. Unfortunately, me being 22 and miserly, I think the current sets on sale are balls. So I'm picking up the sets I used to love so much. Namely these heroes:

6982-1.jpg

And these villains:

6979_brickset.jpg
6975_brickset.jpg

Even if the Lego therapy doesn't help my bro, at least I'll have a Lego collection again.

    My LEGO have been donated to my plethora of young cousins, mostly because I balked at the cost of shipping a 60 gallon rubbermaid container cross-country

    YES, thank you Indie.

    I was trawling looking for the kits that had that dome cockpit window like that.

    The subs of my day were all yellow and blue hard edge panels - Aquanauts, I believe.

    But I had one of those round domes too. Many a year I pondered where the fuck it had come from.
