    Well, I’ve been quite busy for the past 6 months or so…but I have been slowly piecing together and building a train terminal that I purchased the instructions from on eBay (https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lego-Station-PDF-instructions-MOC-Building-City-Modular-/152374747648?hash=item237a3e2200). I also did some modifications and customized it a little bit by adding a comic shop and a small convenience store (with stickers from Brick Builders Pro (http://www.brickbuilderspro.com/). It was quite the project and I just finished it, so I thought I would show some pictures to you all. I had some help sourcing some of the parts from my local Bricks and Minifigs store. There are around 12,000-13,000 parts to the building. Eventually I plan on adding a 60051 High Speed Passenger train or two and doing some more changes/modifications to it….but I am going to save that for a later date.

    To lighten the mood, here is a finished picture of mine. To get the colors of the engine plume correct, the four outside engines use a trans-orange plate while the center engine uses a trans-light blue plate. This was achieved using Brickstuff pico LED lighting system (http://www.brickstuff.com - cannot recommend enough. A little pricey, but great to work with and the end result is fantastic). 5x pico LED's, some adapter boards, an IR Lighting Effect Controller, and a small battery pack. The four outer engines (orange) have a flicker effect, the center engine (blue) is solid on. To get a clean install, I cheated a bit and used a 7/8" drill to go through the 'stud stack' so that the wire would be routed on the inside.

    Here you go. Are likes important? ^^ Anyway, I find it interesting that the City Vulcan sets are also seem to be done. They are from last year, so they are not really that old. Did a pretty good investment with the last (deep sea) sets, but I didnt bought any of these Retired.txt

    list wins again. not bad accurately predicting the EOL of a 5 month old set. I'm feeling generous and seems Cladner and Val-E are working to hard at this, might as well simplify their jobs for the holidays.

    Just finished this up, figured I'd post it up. The goal was to leave the Haunted House set untouched but to build around it. I also wanted to be able to open the house. All in all I'm happy with how it turned out. Thoughts and comments appreciated.

    Just wanted to share some pictures of my finished UCS Tie Fighter. Lighting by Brickstuff pico LEDs. The laser cannons are on an 'pulse fire' mode in the Lighting Effects Controller while the engines are on a 'Flicker' mode. Mounted on the wall using a TV mount and a bent L-bracket. This inserts into the bottom side of the model and gives it the angle of attack.

    I'm Thankful for the Macks, and you guys, this site, and the work you all do even on days like today. Thank you all, hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving/BF. Ordered probably too many of the Walmart LEGO set, but seems tough to go wrong. People talking about Atlas, my closest two TRU have several of these on the shelves.

    quit making to many themes, to many BS sets, way to much overproduction to where the stuff gets liquidated heavily at retail and in bulk through other avenues. Quit extending retirement dates because of a sales spike. Quit holding products who knows where then releasing 75,000 of a poly on a retailer months after it has no interest. Quit releasing the holiday sets that you retire on your website one year after with new print / batch codes. Quit giving out the same promos years later. Make some new concepts instead of just retiring the previous smaller set then releasing another. Those are all things that would help right the ship over re releasing the same set you've already offered before. People want new stuff when it comes to big sets. There are plenty of ways to get the retired sets that go to high for a cheaper price whether it be used or bricklinking if you are a collector and really wanted something you missed out on. The sales decline has everything to do with a glut of average or subpar / rehashed products and product that has been out way to long and should of been retired years ago. People only have so much money and 600 active sets just overwhelms customers and causes disinterest in the brand as well as retailers having to do drastic sales to move it.

    Sets like the Taj Mahal are clearly aimed at collectors... pretty sure it's not something most 7 year olds want under the Xmas tree or for their birthday. And what demand? The 2 or 3 sold each month on eBay? That's not demand... Besides all the "collectors" are just going to be bitter about the price increase for 1 extra part. LEGO is cashing in on an easy release, simple as that. Lazy and short sighted .. short term gain, long term nothing.

    LEGO are doing (and have done) unbelievable damage to their own value (way, way, way more than any perceived damage that the knockoffs could ever cause). LEGO sets were worth more (and commanded a premium) because they were inevitably worth more than just a bunch of plastic toy pieces - now they are just overpriced plastic. I am truly astounded at the level of their stupidity.

    I went to London with my family for a grand ol' time. Of course I also visited the Leicester Square Lego store, and a Toys'R'Us (which still had those TRU exclusive minifigures sets and the free Christmas tree promo thingy). And I managed to get 18 Lester minifigs as well for friends, colleagues and other interested people. The big boxes are all for my own collection! Funny to see how the mini London Bus was still sold at Leicester Square for 10 pounds with plenty of stock, while Hamleys was selling them for 15 pounds! I got a good (30%) discount on the Disney Castle, Brick Bank, Snowspeeder and London Bus sets. For the Assembly Square (already cheaper in the UK than in The Netherlands) I used my saved up VIP points to get it down to 135 pounds, or about €155. Disney Castle at 30% discount came down to 210 pounds, or €241 which is much cheaper than €350 in The Netherlands! All in all a great haul, even when I had to take those big boxes with me in the underground to get to the hotel where we were staying.

    🦃 I just wanted to wish all the BrickPicker members a Happy Thanksgiving. I'm sorry that I haven't been active lately on the site, but I am finishing up a major renovation of my business and I haven't had time to poop. I am thankful for a day off today! Anyway, enjoy your turkey and have a fun time shopping later on... Ed Mack

    When we hit January 1, I'll restart this thread with those "rules" in place. And we'll keep it clean so it's just the set and the retirement date (and the region), along with a screenshot. Otherwise, the post will be deleted. I will even sticky it to the top of the forum. Carry on until then.

    I never have understood why people post pictures like this on their listing and enter their max quantity that they have. It's telling the potential buyer " I got plenty of these. No rush. Wait to see if the price drops further".

    Someone just shared this on Facebook regarding WoN. You are essentially copping a feel of their pocketbooks. "The patriarchy of the website "Brickpicker" are the ones buying up all this triumphant women's Lego set and bragging about scalping them. Just MORE men taking advantage of women. They assault our bodies and now our wallets!!!!!"

    But how many people will really care? I would have LOVED to find an old one, but now I have zero interest in this set. There WAS something special about the set precisely because it was rare and prohibitively expensive. Now it's just another expensive D2C set that won't be in high demand after Jan 2018 and will take up a ton of retail space.

    75054 - AT-AT 75050 - B-Wing 75092 - Naboo Starfighter 75094 - Imperial Shuttle Tydirum 75105 - Millennium Falcon Based on the rest of the images the AT-AT and IST are complete. Naboo Starfighter is missing the antennas, the remaining parts to the b-wing look to be in the clothes basket along with a ton of MF pieces. Most of the minifigs are there as well, the missing may be among the parts in the basket. Wasn't stopping to ask questions before I hit BIN. Not bad for $47 shipped.

    I have a buddy that is also into Lego investing/collecting. We have a saying that we use for our best hauls. "Cake taker". As in it "takes the cake", as in the best deal one of us ever found. There's been some good ones in the past: my ucs r2 I found for $7, a green grocer I got in a lot for $60... but today's is the new "cake taker". Last night I saw on fb a lot for $60. First pic showed a three drawer tote filled with random pieces and chunks, second pic showed a large tote with what was clear to me to be a cafe corner. The listing had only been up for less than an hour so I messaged the seller, and we set up a meeting for this morning. Thankfully after we talked, she marked it as sold so nobody tried to snipe it from me. So I show up this morning, I hand over the $60, and I start carrying over the tote with the cc to my truck. I glance down and see a green grocer under the cafe! With half a pet shop attached to it! I load it all up and drive home to check it all out. Cc and gg appear to be complete. I didn't find the other half of the pet shop, but it may just be fully taken apart in the bins. Lots of other neat stuff including a lot of parts (hopefully complete)to the town plan set, a large Vikings set, city garage and firehouse. And to top it all off, if you look above this post, you'll see last week I got a lot with a black pearl. That black pearl was complete, except for one piece...the skull flag in top. Well by some crazy coincidence I found that flag (and a jack sparrow fig) in today's lot! No instructions in this lot, as dusty as all get out, but I'm not complaining.
