Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

Ninjago, I've not seen a single ep of the show let alone the movie, with the movie, all I seen is the trailer but it didn't say "WOW" to me, I put Lego Batman higher than the first Lego movie, the first one was good up until they broke the suspense of disbelief that this was a alterative world where people made of lego exist, I just didn't like seeing real humans in the film, it just derailed the plot for me and my enjoyment, while Lego Batman was a superior film, besides its Batman, what's not to like?

 

Anyway I've gotten two kits from the new movie line, the first is Unikitty & Warrior Lucy, (includes Emment), the other is: Battle Ready, Batman & Metalbeard. I like Batman's armour in his kit, Metalbeard is much less than before (clearly someone couldn't find all of his body parts) Unikitty is a reasonable build, of course there is the option of swapping faces, of course that kit comes with an alien creature, it has one eye, is bright green and blue but I have very little clue as to what it is beyond being an alien one eyed brick creature from SPACE!

Well kids aren't that into Duplo with the target age group, besides, where is the fun in building a alien from just Duplo when your into proper lego?

while i very much want to see the movie, i'm not nearly as interested in the sets (at least wave 1, thus far) as i was with the first movie. both spaceships are interesting, but i haven't been able to pull the trigger on them. how is the articulation on Unikitty???

I haven't gotten giant rage Unikitty, but it does look to have ball joints in a bunch of places.  Any articulation issues would be more along the lines of spikes blocking the range.

 

---Dave, got a bunch of Unikitty blindbags for $1 each on clearance at Walmart the other day...about worth that.

I'm not sure if I want many of the Movie 2 sets, but I really do like the Pop-Up Party Bus. Probably give the weird minifigs to my niece though.

 

Maybe get the Rex-Treme Offroader too (raptor quaaaaad), or the Escape Buggy.

The spikes aren't a major problem, they are on clip joints, thus move out of the way when you bend the legs, the spikes around the side of the head move along with the head which is on a ball joint, the paws can move up and down, for the most part, its feline body movement style, the tail can move about as that's on ball joints, the shoulder connections to the body are where the ball joints are, overall its a reasonable range of movement but no human arms out poses due to desgin but that's fine with me as its meant to be a four legged creature, you can do a full 360 on each leg as the spikes at the side of the head move about to be however you want them to be! The front shoulder pads are on clip joints so their not in the way, there's two spikes on the back of the body that can move up and down and cover where Emment can stand or someone else, say for example a lego Zombie!

 

Well hopefully tomorow, I'll do some major repairs to my big lego castle, its gotten a bit wrecked by my six year old nephew while I've been at work, the front needs serious repair, so its a scenic ruin, currently, plus I plan to add to large base boards I bought a while back to the two already in place, hopefully that make it a bit more stable, it will take a while to sort out as I get the walls repaired and the top part of the front gate fixed! I think my nephew is curious to how cullis the gate part works that or he obessed with destorying it as apart of whatever game he was playing, this includes taking the tresure out of the chests and leaving it scattered everywhere, I'm thinking of moving the chests over to my dark fortress and say the bad guys stole the tressure (he doesn't play with that model as its elsewhere and not in the room where he its aloud to go!)

Saw the new film.  Fell asleep through a couple of the musical numbers.  Thought it was bland overall.

Surprisingly, my favourite things were the Party Bus and General Mayhem Spaceship designs.

 

It was actually worse than Ninjago - Ninjago at least got a few chuckles out of me.

Saw The Lego Movie 2. It's still jump cutty, colorful, explosion but I think there's way more retro/adult references than the first one (would kids know Bruce Willis from Die Hard? Or Vicki Vale?).

It follows the first movie's sensitive part. With the catchy and not-catchy songs, I did sorta, almost tear up a bit, even though I knew that's where it was going.

I haven't really collected much LEGO lately, but I have had the Friends Tree House from last year (year 1 of the reboot) on display in my room for about 8-9 months. I needed to clear up some space so I made a few tiiiiny modifications to the build. Mostly it was to get rid of the rope ladder.

 

XB4h2T7.jpg

 

Spoiler

 

It was really fun to fidget around with the set for the first time in forever (though I lost two of the flowers under my bookcase already) and photographing it was a blast.

 

As for new sets;

  1. There's a bunch of Friends stuff I want, but that's always the case
  2. I also want the Disney Princess Jasmine and Aladdin's Palace Adventures set, but it seems quite costly for something with very little build (it does take up quite a bit of space though). It's the only way to get Minidoll Aladdin, unfortunately.
  3. I want the boy minidoll from that giant spaceship party set from the second movie but there's no way I'm paying full price for a spaceship (which isn't really my sort of thing).

Found the Ninjago Dragon Pit on clearance for $50, and even though I'm trying to stop buying LEGO, I decided this one was too good of a deal to pass up.

I was initially going to use it as a main gate to Apocalypseburg, but after my less than stellar impression of TLM2, I may end up passing on that one all together.

The box was a bit rough, but I don't really keep them so not a dealbreaker for me.

They had the Dieselnaut for $50 as well.  It's kind of a large vehicle so I'm not sure where I'd put it.  Honestly, I have a very limited interest in vehicles from the Ninjago line so I did pass on that one.
