Re: Legoland California

The thing I forgot to ask is, did you buy your ticket(s) online or at the booth when you were entering Legoland?

Re: Legoland California

Last spring break, I purchased myself a 2-days pass in full price and submitted ONE free child ticket coupon to the cashier; as a result, my son got free admission for both days. That is great news, cause if that is what LEGO does for us parents that is awesome! I was in so much doubt if that would...

Legoland California

I am looking to go to Legoland California so the kids (and I the AFOL) can go and finally see this wonderful place on earth. The question I have though is this: I have the free admission tickets (4) for the kids (2) and want to know if I used it say on Monday using 2 free admission tickets and go ba...

Re: [MOD] Dragon Knight Castle - My First MOD

Awesome job on making this castle. Love the level of detail and the watch tower. Any chance you made a part list and manual on building this for other Castle lovers to help recreate this? I have never made a part list and manual before. Do you know where I could find the tutorial? I could partially...

Re: 2011 LEGO Cars

Man the majority of these sets are sweet. I can't wait til they come out. My son is gonna flip when he sees them.

The Tokyo circuit, Mack's Team Truck and Ultimate Mater are on my hit list for my son. He loves McQueen, Mater and Mack. It's gonna be a crazy summer is all I can say!

Re: Assault Frigate [Space, WiP, LDD]

Vynsane, I definitely like your design. Would really be interested in seeing the final product as well.

The chair designs are just killer, makes me think of Star Trek. Are you designing the chairs to have a swivel bottom?

Re: Mega Blocks is NOT LEGO!

I solved this problem by asking for money. Then again, if they can't see the difference between lego and mega bloks, they might just give you yen. :lol: I guess that is what I am going to have to resort to and avoid issues like this down the road. Much easier than asking for a specific gift and avo...

this would be logical as the first one was in western Canada. Hopefully, the next few are in montreal and Vancouver but for all you BC Lower Mainlander's Where do you think the best venue would be?

Man you Torontonians are lucky, wish they would build a LEGO store here in Vancouver, BC, or at least in the Lower Mainland. That would be sweet!

Dibs on those two new police sets! I get all of them! Wow, they're finally making some bad guy inspired police sets for a change! I am definitely loving the fact that there are now criminals to catch and the fact that now they are getting their own vehicles as well. Way to go LEGO, kudos to you! Th...

I wish they would do this here in Canada. It's a lot of fun when they have had building sessions, such as Mother's day and Father's day. My son absolutely loves these moments!

These 2 sets have been further reduced to $29.99. Very good buy. :D

Re: Mega Blocks is NOT LEGO!

First off, I would like to say that this has opened quite the discussion, which I was hoping for. Complaining about a gift! :-( thats really not cool. To some LEGO is like KLEENEX. a block is a block. tissue is a tissue. Just hope you get a gift receipt or cash. Its bricks. Your son will like to pla...
