I LOVE Bricklink.



That is all.



So do I.

I just spent a little over $30, plus whatever shipping comes out to be, and I'll be able to complete 2 Battraxes and Galactic Peace Keepers in M-Tron and Space Police colors, plus more on the snow-speeder I've been working on, and I found pieces to polish off the "squad" of re-colored vehicles in my own color scheme...and I picked up some pieces to work towards my Mega-Core Magnetizer and Galaxy Commander.

Now I need to find the Bricklink equivalent to Home Depot, so that I can find a cheaper option for display shelves...

I generally don't get much response when I post my own MOCs, especially for any not tied in with another large licensed property. So with that in mind, tec, I am happy to see you posting your space creations. Would love to see some large ship sized alien life for them to study. icon-hotrod.gif

My current MOC, which will probably not be done for another couple of months, is a 100+ stud spaceship. I'm very excited to share it but the progress has been slow because of my schedule and waiting for bricklink orders.

...that's Hero Factory...


Which, from the few sets I have, is awesome. I just don't have the space or the budget for them anymore.


Still got those bags of Bionicle pieces...quite a space taker-upper.

I panicked late last night
I had to completly dismantel the Dragonfly (the yellow hybrid ship I posted above)
There was a clearance issue with the rouge pilot and the canopy and had to remove a 3x6 plate then rebuild it

I had a neat little bit of luck today at my WM. I finally found where they moved their Series 5 minifig packs, so I decided to randomly grab some and hope for the best. Now, counting the four I bought months ago, I have eight out of the 16 without a single duplicate, and to make it better, two of the new ones are the gangster and detective that I wanted so much!
I think I'm gonna stop right there. The only ones I'd want out of the remaining 8 are the lumberjack and evil dwarf, and I don't trust my luck that far. Now I'm hoping they get in some Series 6 soon.

Did some one say Hero Factory.





Or Bionicle?








I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.

Sipder-man?

After seeing a presentation for that new Town Hall, I have this burning desire to pick up Fire Brigade, Emporium, and Pet Shop while I still can and add it to the imminent purchase of the Town Hall. It's just a shame you can't get the previous sets at a decent price, and I doubt Lego's going to reissue them.

Perfect backdrop for all things Batman? Oh, I think so.
