Two recent acquisitions:

I love the olympic figures, I wonder if they have them at local toy stores or not.
Side note, I noticed they're really pumping out the regular Series of Minifigures quick. I remember that series 4 and 5 were out almost a year, then 6 came less than a year later, 7 6 months later, now they show 8? No way i can keep up with buying, let alone finding them all.
After a few years of admiring some of the new sets and wanting them but never pulling the trigger, I finally said "screw it" and started buying some. Here's my (very small) list: http://www.brickset.com/search/?ownedBy=odueck Still waiting for three of these to be delivered. I'm mainly interested in buildings (architecture, modular, Creator houses) and vehicles.
Built this yesterday:
I made three mistakes. The first I caught fairly early, but it was too late to fix without starting from scratch and didn't affect functionality. The second I noticed right away and was able to correct easily. The third, well, I didn't notice until I was done. I missed one of the many, many gears and the arm doesn't move up and down. Guess I will have to rebuild it.
Otherwise I never would have known!

So far this year I've picked up:
Droid escape pod
(and probably more than I can remember at the moment )
===== Mine: 2010 Black Golf TDI
===== His: 2006½ United Gray GTI
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):
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.
