Re: [Entries] The Simpsons LEGO Microbuild Tournament

Mini Krusty Burger I like those green "bush" parts that you used so much that after seeing your build I bought all that the bricklink vendor (only 2) had when I placed my last bricklink order. Krusty is one of my favorite Simpson's characters Good job with your build :-D Thanks! I was looking for w...

Re: MOC: Stadler GTW 2/6 Railcar

Nice! I guess this is also the train that 7938 was based on! Didn't know it was a real train.

Not quite as smal...

Re: [Contest] The Simpsons LEGO Microbuild Tournament

So is it considered a microbuild as long as the scale is smaller than minifig scale?

My build is not as small (scale-wise) as the other entries, but it is definitely smaller than minifig-scale.

Re: [MOC] Food Truck

Well, there's been some new parts and new colors of existing parts since the last revision, so I figured it was time to update this model again. Plus, it'll be the first time this was updated since Lego switched from Cuusoo to Ideas. This is the 3rd major revision of this model, so let's get to what...

[USA] City 3-in-1 Super Pack 66475 at TRU

Found the 3-in-1 City set #66475 at Toys R Us in Schaumburg, IL. Price is $109.99 but price may vary because you know, it's TRU. Is it a deal? NO. If you bought these three sets separately at normal MSRP, it would cost $109.97. If your TRU sells it for cheaper than $109.99, then you'll be saving a b...

Re: VIP Exclusive Holiday Shopping Event 2013

The Chicago Water Tower store didn't open late. My invite was for 7am. Then I got an email saying that they were opening at 8am for the VIP event. Got there at 7:25am and they let us in. Correct. They did not open late; in fact, they opened early because they didn't contact everyone about the time ...

Re: VIP Exclusive Holiday Shopping Event 2013

At my store, they did not offer the pull off coupon, but we got everything else and they were good about mentioning the 3x VIP points. They said the PAB was 1 per family (basically 1 per invite) which kind of sucks if you brought a friend. My store opened 1 hour after the stated time on the invite, ...

[US] 30222 Police Helicopter polybag at TRU

Spotted the Police Helicopter 30222 polybag today at a Chicago TRU. They were in the process of resetting the Lego section and I found it in a box on a cart along with other new sets like the new Hobbit sets. It was not in their system yet, so I don't know what the price will be. This was previously...

Re: LEGO Store Grand Opening in Gurnee, Illinois

I've only been to one grand opening event where they actually gave out the minifigure sets in order (where the first person got #1, the second person got #2, etc.). That was the Mission Viejo, CA store opening (I got number 18). At the other two events I've been to (San Diego, CA and this one), they...

Re: LEGO Store Grand Opening in Gurnee, Illinois

I went yesterday, on the 17th to get the minifigure set. I arrived about 10 minutes before opening and there were maybe 12 people ahead of me. The employees were saying it was not as crowded as Saturday. Here's the minifigure set: http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5501/10911258823_7684337e33_z.jpg LEGO ...

Re: I think the Target Winter clearance has started...

Just went to my Target last night and scored a MF Zombies for $27. It wasn't there on Sunday so it must've been a return or backroom find. Also picked up another City Tipper Truck for $10.
They had one Weathertop set but it scanned at full price.
