It appears that the clock hands are made out of some of those tools, and the rest are just leftover...why they bothered to show these leftover pieces is beyond me though.

Re: Modular Train Station Reaches 10 000 Supporters on LEGO

It's a nice looking set...I like the brick-built "STATION" and the use of the business card letter tiles for destinations (on the back side). As mentioned above, TLG will likely never select it as the modular line is a separate franchise from Ideas. Won't necessarily stop them from taking the idea t...

Re: [TnB] Preview Review 71016 Simpsons Kwik-E-Mart

Great review! I purchased this set a few months ago and finally assembled it this week when we got snow and I was stuck inside. I would have assembled it sooner and did a review if you hadn't beat me to it :) Aside from the 60+ stickers to affix, I'm generally pleased with the set. A few things to n...

Re: Simpsons CMF series #2 box distrubution

Thanks for the tips on finding the figures. Always feel silly standing in the store doing that...I'm thinking about wearing dark glasses and a tucking a thin cane under my arm while I carefully feel the packages :cool:

Re: LEGO Expert 10247 Ferris Wheel - First Look

It's not a licensed set...the Parisian Restaurant (10243) is 2469 pieces for $160, so it's possible this set could be closer that price point.

Re: LEGO 71016 The Kwik-E-Mart Official Press Release

Hmm...same price as the house for 344 fewer pieces and only one new minifigure? Though it does look like there may be a fair amount of printed pieces...you're pushing it, Lego.

Ack...between these and the Kwik-E-Mart, it looks like my Lego spending is gonna see a huge spike in the coming months. I agree that Comic Book Guy does look pretty bad being so thin. Also, I think "Groundskeeper" Willie should have a rake, not a plunger. Would've been nice to see Maggie with her st...
