  2. Latest UCS Star Wars Build. I knew that the Imperial Shuttle was huge but still taken aback by the size of it. Side by side comparison with Vader's Tie and the AT-ST, and it dwarfs over them.

  3. $9.81 each at Sam's Club. Wife: "Remember those ones I got last week for $12.81?" Me: "Yeah. Sold em all already. About $13 profit each." "So if I told you I got 10 more of them at $9.81 you'd be really happy, right?" Me: "Oh God, please tell me you arm-swept..." "The only one I left had a damaged box." Me: "Dear Lord I love you..." "Will your Lego friends get jealousy-boners?" Me: "Gimme a second, gotta finish posting something on Brickpicker here..."

  4. Finally picked up a 10143 Death Star (sealed boxes / bags - opened box). Been wanting the set since 2014 but never pulled the trigger. Wish I would have then. Would have saved some coin ($500). Just need to figure out if / when i will be building it.

  6. The "Great Loot of 2016" in all of it's glory!! We take this style picture of our Lego Loot every year. It gives us a bit of a reference at times. And...YES...my kids (and us) are a bit spoiled!!

  7. For my final post of this year, I am proud to introduce the Range Rover Evoque with air ride. The car was too black so I added white, it was too low so I raised it a stud and the hood wasn't slanted enough so I re-created the front of the vehicle. I reduced the weight to 6.3 pounds (2850g) The car functions really well, I highly suggest using an S-brick for this car as the receivers are hidden behind the seats. This car has 4wd, air ride, torsion bar suspension, 2 XL motors for drive, 2 m motors for lift, V8, servo for steering, gear shifter turns on the lights. The car is finally to a perfect scale. The hard parts of this build was the air ride, torsion bar and having the doors start low at the front and higher at the back. I bought a pair of custom chrome exhaust pipes for this built. flickr: https://flickr.com/photos/139930963@N04/sets/72157676733470861 MOC-Pages: http://moc-pages.com/moc.php/435565 Below is the car in comparison to the 42052 helicopter set Air ride Range Rover Evoque by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Back end was super difficult: Air ride Range Rover Evoque by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Everything opens: Air ride Range Rover Evoque by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Interior: Air ride Range Rover Evoque by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Top view: Air ride Range Rover Evoque by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Air ride Range Rover Evoque by lachlan cameron, on Flickr I'm ready to take my helicopter to work...

  16. Awesome. I'm glad somebody here could jump on it. I'm in Green Bay, so It would have been a six hour round trip for me, which is a little too far out of my Lego hunting radius. I was updating my Craig's listings the other night when I noticed it. Figured I would post the link so someone could get it. I'm glad it worked out for you. Enjoy!

  17. Finished! It's missing about 30 pieces that will be easy and cheap to buy from BL. I purchased it couple weeks ago for $240 on CL thanks to a tip from @terrymc4677 Will sell on eBay for $600-700.

  18. Built a used 10212 UCS Imperial Shuttle that I picked up for $230 with shipping a couple weeks ago. What an impressive set. I knew it was a large set but it always seems bigger when it sits in the dining room table. Had all minifigs no box no instructions. I can cross this set off my list.

  20. Finished up this guy today. Started yesterday afternoon and finished tonight. Really fun build and magnificent display but this thing is very unstable. It needs a home and to be never touched again.

  21. Let's encourage people to post deals. Crapping on people because you didn't like the deal they posted or how they posted it just discourages people from posting deals. Maybe you don't think it's a great deal. Maybe you don't like the campy style in which it was posted. Just ignore it.

  29. The Lighthouse My story For this modular (creator) building was that the The Lighthouse is based for a creation to fit in the Sea front Village. I built this one on Lego Digital Designer (LDD). I really believe that this model could have a lot of genuine interest for fans of my Sea front Village sets. This is the fifth building that I will be submitting. Summary A lighthouse is a tower, building, or other type of structure designed to emit light from a system of lamps and lenses, and to serve as a navigational aid for maritime pilots at sea or on inland waterways. Lighthouses mark dangerous coastlines, hazardous shoals, reefs, and safe entries to harbors, and can assist in aerial navigation. Once widely used, the number of operational lighthouses has declined due to the expense of maintenance and use of electronic navigational systems. On a clear day you can see forever.. How often can you see a light house? Popular with tourists, get in early and enjoy the ambiance.. A short walk from the Lighthouse there is an Old Fishing Store down the road, which has bait and tackle. Or go around the lighthouse and enjoy a magnificent view. The Lighthouse is under some construction and is also getting painted. The following is a list of the Lighthouse items: Minifig: Carpenter, Fisherman, Painters and Lighthouse manager. Sealife: Crabs, Starfish, Sea grass, Seagull, And more Boat: Rowing boat The building consists of roughly 2380 parts and a boat, office, bedroom, kitchen, deck with a porch and outhouse, light room, storage room between the cliff. I used the colors sand blue and white glow, reddish brown for the building that gives it a realistic feeling. The roofs I used the color dark stone grey and reddish brown. The roof just sits on a couple of studs so it’s easy to take of and put on. If you like this design or the idea of the The Lighthouse – Modular (Creator) Building thanks for reading and Brick On everyone ! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/163836

  33. Enjoyed the Christmas holiday with family and built this oldie/goodie over the past couple days. I bricklink'ed this set after pulling about half of it from my bulk collection. Enjoyable build and happy to add it to the modular street.

  42. Well, 2016 is wrapping up... So, as we sail into 2017 and a whole new set of sets are on the way, let's take a look at the retirement sets and what they could bring us in 2017 and beyond. Here's what I speculate. #19 - First Order Snowspeeder - I think this set will double, but it will be a slow double that might take a few years to get there. It's quirky, it was only seen as a background in the movie, and you barely saw the snowtroopers in action. Overall, it sits as one of those sets that will be in a grey area. #18 - Hoth Attack & Droid Escape - in the US these sets had a 9 month shelf life. There really is nothing to either though, and the Han Solo minifigure from the Hoth Attack set was in a polybag a few years back. The snowtrooper, and rebel trooper are also in other sets, so nothing too exclusive here... but Hoth Sets always seem to do well. I expect this one to also double in the future. Droid Escape has the Jawa's.. This is a set you pair with a Sandcrawler. #17 - Sith Infiltrator & Naboo Starfighter - The sith infiltrator has never been a set that has made a lot of profit, and I don't suspect this one will either. On top of that, Darth Maul, and Qui-gon are in an upcoming set, so those figures are going to appear again. I guess, the Watto Minifigure is really the best thing in this one, but Watto is not that iconic of a character. I feel the same way about the Naboo Starfighter. #16 - Hailfire Droid - This set is below average in my opinion. The first Hailfire Droid was far superior. The minifigures on this one aren't really going to boos the value either. This is one that might hit 2x but take forever to sell at that price. #15 - Anakin's Custom Jedi Starfighter - This set doesn't do much for me, but it's one of those quirky sets that some star wars nuts love to own. Sooo... i'd stash a couple just in case. But, I suspect it will have slow resale potential. #14 - Set of Series 3 Microfighters - Microfighters have some juice to them. I recently sold off a series 2 set for almost 2.3 x it's original RRP value. I also have sold series 1 complete sets for quite a good amount of profit. Overall, I still think these little sets have some legs. Selling them in complete sets makes it easier though.. and just how i've done it. #13 Imperial Troop Transport - Rebels set with 4 stormies. Overall, they are unique to the rebels theme, but i'm not sure the Stormtrooper figures themselves will be as in demand. With the Rogue One battlepack containing more troopers, and every advent calendar containing one, I doubt these skyrocket in value. Still could easily get close to 2x. #12 - Geonosis Troopers, Shadow Troopers, and Senate Soldiers - i'm grouping these together. All of these have interesting minifigures, but i'm not sold they will quickly double your money. Overall, good to have a few laying around, but nothing worth having a ton of. #11 - Tie Advanced Prototype - Cool ship, and interesting build.. It's rebels though, and i'm not sure the rebels theme will have long legs. Same can be said about the Imperial Assault Carrier #10 - Obi Wants Interceptor - Anakin's Jedi Interceptor has almost hit 3x... I suspect Obi's interceptor will do a similar. It was around for a lot less time than Anakin's, and I don't think as many copies were produced. #9 - Resistence Troop Transporter - I personally like this set. It's plain jane, but with Carrie Fishers death, this set could very well have some momentum. It also had a relatively short shelf life of a year. Overall, not the most iconic of ships, but it's Leia's ship. #8 - FO Transporter - Captain Phasma, with Flametroopers and FO Stormies will sell this one as EP 8 and 9 approach. I personally like this set out of all the first wave of Force Awakens sets. I know others don't, but I like the minifigures, and absolutely think the ship design itself is fun, quirky, and serves its purpose. My son also plays with this one quite a bit. #7 - Ewok Village - This set has already jumped up in value... To me it's a great set, and just one of the best Star Wars sets any kid would want. It's also stacked with minifigures and has a iconic exclusive Leia figure.. #6 - Battlefront Battlepacks - These sets have some interesting variants, and minifigures. While the builds are nothing great, the minifigures like the Shock Trooper, and some of the rebel alien soldiers could be solid "semi" rare minifigures in the future. I see these easily doubling, if not quadrupling in a few years. #5 - Vaders Tie Advanced vs A-wing Starfighter - What I like most about this is how short its shelflife was. That alone should make it a rarer set in the future. This one is a crap shoot. I think it can go either way... but I think because of that it's worth putting in the top. This is a set that either goes near 4x or hovers near 2. #4 - Death Star Final Duel - Iconic scene from the OT. OT sets are usually solid, and this one has a lot going for it. I think it could do well. It's already jumped out of the gates. #3 - Battle Droid Troop Carrier - Say what you may about the Phantom Menace, but these Droid vehicles are gold as investments. The MTT from 2014 is already 160 on amazon, and this set is it's little sister. I personally, think this was an awesome build, and a great freaking set. It's by far the best troop carrier, and no one was talking about this one. I give this one a real chance to hit 140 in a few years. 3x or bust on this one. #2 - Sandcrawler - Give it time... lots of time, and this set will be the one where you make the most money for little effort. Even if this set doubles, you make hundreds on it by just having to go to ship a set once. Not bad. #1 - Imperial Shuttle Tydirium - This is by far the best set that retired, IMO. The minfigures are great, and I really like this set and think it will perform very well over time. I also don't see them making this one again in a long time.

  43. I am not sure of your particular issue since you gave zero details, if you have some, send me a PM and I will do what I can to make it better or explain why something is the way it is. If it has to do with stock, you have to realize that its over a 3 hour period now. It used to be much more effective when I had it every hour, but to try and make a few happy, I changed the frequency. I get updates every 20-30 minutes in my inbox so I see lots of stock changes and price changes. Amazon is worse than the stock market, especially this time of the year. They seriously play games. No, I honestly get a ton of feedback on how its helped them land good deals. This thread is called daily deals and it belongs here. As it has been stated, if you don't want to see that one post (i mean it is seriously just one post) then ignore the user. I am not going to create a new thread for one post. I have other features coming related to watching sales, price changes, etc. If that works better for you, then as I said, you can ignore Max profit. Max Profit helps pay the bills on this site, he is not going anywhere. He will continue to improve. All of it takes time.
