      The wife and I made a stop at the LEGO store at Tyson's. F that store. Small and stupid crowded with aloof parents and their poorly-trained children. We'll make the trip to the one at Potomac Mills from now on instead.

      For the wife (just came out yesterday):


      For me:


      And we got 3 of these for free for spending so much.


      This logging truck is about 5x as complex as the flatbed truck I had to rebuild 3 times... This one has only one motor but two switched transmissions for the various functions. Crazy.

      Here is my small and humble but always expanding list. http://www.brickset.com/search/?owned=1
      I probably missed a couple sets but all the important ones are there!

      Yup. 70,000 pieces, 135 pounds, just over 7 feet in length. It took me 475 hours over 21 months to build.

      Oh you built that? That's insane man! Talk about dedication. Most think oh it's just plastic bricks haha but I'm sure there are only a few in the world who could make something of this scale. The level of detail on that thing is crazy! WOW! Do any parts of it open up to reveal the inside?

      A few members of our LUG built a habitat display for Series 8 Collectible Minifigures. It can be seen at the Lego Store in Fairview Mall, Toronto for the month of September 2012.

      We made an impromptu trip to the LEGO store at Potomac Mills yesterday.

      My wife picked up:



      and I got:


      I really wanted the new B-Wing Ultimate Collector but it was $20 more than R2 but had 600 fewer pieces... I figure I'll have to time to get it eventually since it just came out.

      My wife was going to get the Winter Village Bakery too but the LEGO store didn't get it and we couldn't find it at Target or two different Toys R Us'. We'll order it online, I just gotta figure out what set I'll get for myself.

      I finished R2 last night, he's pretty awesome.

      We just placed an order at Lego.com for more stuff:

      For her


      For me


      Just because


      And some sets for our niece and nephews that we're visiting in CO in November:

      7-year old niece


      5-year old nephew (he gets 2 because these were only $10, the other kids got $20 sets)



      2-year old nephew

      Nice finds, we picked up the new holiday building (the first one) this weekend along with an advent calendar (Friends, but it's my daughter who picked it out)... Already have the prior 3 holiday buildings, our village gets a little bigger this year
