    This being 2020, they’ll be based off the “Dark Universe” or whatever the hell Universal was calling it.

    If it brings back the Monster Fighter line, even in spirit, I'm all for it.

    The main goal in going broke buying lego, is to get enough sets before you are homeless that you can build at least 1 room out of bricks to live in.

    Whelp. The second they have either Dracula or Bride of Frankenstein, I have to buy them for my wife.

    After enough modulars have been released, Lego is going to release a set that builds a room to display them in.

    I don't know if it's been mentioned here but I saw Lego birthday cards (with a small kit inside) at Publix this weekend. They were really cool!

    There was a pelican, a Friends flower pot, a red Ninjago dragon + rider, and a Classic race car.

    All I can find is a blog post about them

    The Razor Crest is en route for my son and I, but the timing is not great. I have a bunch of smaller sets and figures that he's dying to earn by doing well with online schooling and doing extra chores around the house. The Razor Crest might have to hide in the closet until the next season of The Mandalorian debuts.

    Looking forward to it, the wait is going to hurt a little bit.

    Solution: Buy some other smaller kits to build in the meantime. It is only 2 months till the next season.

    I am building the Razor Crest. Yes, yes, baby yoda is adorable but they also gave us a new, dual molded, scout trooper helmet and it is the best one yet.

    I showed this to my dad, who wrote the EU short story for Ponda Baba and Dr. Evazan, and he said he will get this set immediately, price is no obstacle.

    I will absolutely be getting that set. I can resist the giant UCS ships, but not Mos Eisley.

    The Treehouse continues to be an awesome build.
    I love lego bathrroms.

    I'm thinking I might buy the lighting kit for this one and use it as a table lamp.

    Wait, you have a connection to the Star Wars Universe and you lead with the Lego kit? That is just too cool! Even cooler that your Dad will have that connection to the kit.

    They don’t it seems, but baseplates are one area where you don’t really need LEGO quality. And LEGO baseplates are ridiculously expensive anyway!

    I deliberately don't do Star Wars Lego because of how much of it there is, but that Mos Eisley set is probably the best single Star Wars set I've ever seen. It's gorgeous.

  • HandkorHandkor Registered User regular
    I just got an e-mail about order I placed and I managed to sneak in before being out of stock to be delivered in time for my Son's birthday that they are now out of stock and are going to be shipping when available.

    Boo!

    Good thing I had bough an extra contingency gift in case this happened.

    I think it would make a great art piece. Kind of a shame that Bea Arthur's character from the holiday special isn't there, but that is one hell of a deep cut.

    It has vehicles!

    If the opened up view was a little more interesting, I might see if I could find a place to display it (thus, meeting my requirement to pick it up). At lest, that's how I'm convincing myself to not blow money on this set.

    Maybe I could petition LEGO to do a $10 "Figran D'an and the Modal Nodes concert" set so the Bith figures at least can be cheaper....

    Hahahaha, very true! I also have broken my rule in the past with the Carbon Freezing Chamber set soooo... I can just say that this is just too big and I have little to no room as it is for the UCS Falcon in my collection.

    the box will sell for more than the shoe. if the shoe gets a limited release then I can guarantee it won't come in that box.

    I EFFIN HATE BLIND BAGS!

    I see the first of them in Target in, like a month or more. I pick up 4 of them.

    EVERY ONE OF THEM was one I already had.

    To make matters worse, they were doubles! 2 bullet bills, 2 of the winged fish thingy.

    I just... ugh.

    I know, I can mass them and make troops/displays. But when you are going for a blooper, or the alt face goomba, or a fuzzy, or a spiny... it's annoying.
