Through in the Ghost Busters HQ and it's going to need some serious space.

And hopefully they'll bring out another modular soon!


Went round to Dad's the other week and he'd built up his modulars to ensure completeness as he was toying with the idea of selling, (I've now managed to convince him otherwise 'cos I want them)!

He hasn't got as many as you and it's still a tables worth - I've got a couple of others (duplicates by the looks of it) and the Ghostbusters HQ so a nice set between us...

Now that is one hell of a modular collection... super nice.. :shock: 8)

Picked up the new Ghostbusters Ecto 1 & Ecto 2 set the other day... was a few £'s cheaper in Argos, so added to the collection.
Wanted - Instruction sheets and Stormtrooper cardbacks preferably....

I felt a great disturbance in the LEGO reseller community, as if millions of resellers suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced....

Yep, there's going to be a lot of resellers sat on thousands of pounds worth of 5 year old boxed sets that are worth what they paid for them :lol:

And as for that set, all I'll say is what a lazy bunch of gits. Why even retire the previous one?? Maybe a little marketing ploy to get people to buy another few set before simply re-releasing it. Regardless, trick well and truly missed!

Holy crap, Martin, that set-up looks cool! As you say, with the other sets it take on epic proportions! What's really cool is that these modulars are pretty much to scale with the train, OK, not to scale but close enough. I see a large room, a town, a serious train set up.....and I see it taking up Gary's new extension! Glad you got the last piece of the puzzle, Gary. Good job you teach as you'll need all your holidays for building. You are going to have some sore fingers when you finish! The standout set of the modular series, for me, is the Cinema. I love it. I'm going to be selling off all my collection between now and Christmas (got a SW habit to fund) but that set I will not sell. Ever.

Bit of a random post but I am selling a pretty decent 1989 Pirate Lego collection right now, photos are on brickset (on iPad so can't load up here due to the size thing).

Classic scam listing on eBay:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LEGO-Star-War ... Swi0RX1nVe

Let's see: High value you item? Check. 24 hours listing? Check. Brand new account? Check. Low amount of feedback all for purchases in last 2 days? Check. Utterly ridiculous location in the UK? Check. I think he meets the criteria.

Sadly, a fair few naive folk did. The "winner" was another brand new account at £300. That was only due to about a dozen bids being cancelled off. Clearly they had indicated they wanted to pay cash on collection or wouldn't pay immediately after the auction ended and wait on contact to arrange collection. I hope the piece of shit seller dies of syphilis.

The cutest darned train made by Lego has just been released to VIP members before it goes on general sale on the 01/10:

https://shop.lego.com/en-GB/Winter-Holi ... D=20377417

I love this set. At 734 pieces it's not the biggest but priced at £69.99 it's not bad value. I think the packaging alone is going to scream Christmas so much it's a must buy.... Dammit. On one hand selling my Lego sets of and on the other I want this!

If you add the promo code GB10 you get £10 off the order. It is part of their promo to support the launch of their god awful new site, still £10 off though :)
