Popped into the lego shop today to get my dad a yellow submarine for xmas. Hope he likes it.

Double points

And a gingerbread man

And he gave me a snow globe as i was frantically looking for something else to buy to make it up.

And he put an awing pilot in my bag.

Good old lego.
Looking for: A fair priced ungraded trilogo Yak Face MOC (Condition is not so important - no cracked bubbles or broken seals though)

Holy crap that's a good haul. Which one was that, Ben? In the office in town today so quite tempted to stop by Leicester Square store if they're feeling particularly generous.

Just in case anyone had been considering the Classic Batcave set, it's currently a massive £70 off at Smyths Toys.

I've been tempted with this for sometime, but the blandness of it has put me off the £230 ask price. At £160 it becomes a lot more palatable. Great range of minifigures with it and with over 2,500 pieces it represents really quite good value for money. Got to love the original Batcopter and Batmobile:

They also have the superb Technic Porsche 911 GT3 at an euqally impressive £75 off, from £250 down to £175:

http://www.smythstoys.com/uk/en-gb/toys ... -rs-42056/

I've just picked up an about-to-be-retired Ewok Village from Lego. With double points, 11% Quidco and a free A-Wing pilot polybag I reckon that to be a quite reasonable £150 price tag. That's a hell of a lot of Lego and an incredible playset. I also picked up the Lego Idea Dr. Who set as I hadn't had it up to now and I see both these are on the "soon to be retired" list. The Cussoo Ideas sets are brilliant. Annoyed I missed a couple that now cost mega bucks to pick up.

And Ecto 1 is soon to retire, too. No better time to pick up anything missing with double point and 11% cashback.

I said I was never going to do it but the allure of Lego has become too much and I have caved in and bought my first Star Wars Lego - the Droid Escape Pod, Hoth Attack and Carbon Freezing Chamber. I love these, they're from the OT, they're not too big and they were on special in Sainsbury's :D

I was beaking that Ewok Village in Smyths yesterday Simon, fucking amazing! And comes with shit loads of figures. Have been looking at SW Lego on ebay the last few days. I can't believe how much is available, it's mental.

It's a slippery slope. All the vintage figures I want now are mega money so I started putting together a set of episodes 456 minifigures. That has turned into buying sets, promo sets etc. If you haven't seen it already, there is a site called Bricklink (http://www.bricklink.com) which has an inventory of pretty much every LEGO thing ever!!

The village is awesome. If you can get it, do, before it starts going for stupid money on eBay.

It's like the Kenner ewok village but with some great additions 8)
martial arts, death, killing stuff......crazy fucking ninja.

Cheers, I'll have a look at that. Be interested to see all the SW sets made.

I'd love to get one but I'd want to open it and build it and it's very big and a lot of money. So cool though 8)

Just have to say, if you can grab the Ewok village. It is a fantastic model, unlike many Lego 'play sets' it is fully formed, great features and figures, it is spectacular. I'm lips my to have the bunker play set from back in 2012 I think it was and some of the smaller sets so I have all of them on a shelf.

OK, more of a brag than a Lego post but my entry in the Brickset 'Whats missing' SW Lego build completion actually won 3rd place, pretty chuffed about that, there were a lot of good entires.

Thanks, worth looking throu all the entries, here are some great looking models, many would make it as formal models which is a bit of a sad indictment on Lego. I get that they have limits etc. But some of the scenes/vehicles offered up here really should get a run in production. The winning Tie Bomber is fantastic.
