Re: Lego Talk!

If it didn't feature Lego it certainly would be a loud, unwatchable mess (and you better steer clear if you're not a fan of Will Arnett). Otherwise, it clearly falls in the Just OK category.

Re: Lego Talk!

https://www.target.com/ has a $10 gift certificate when you spend $50 of Lego.

There's also $25 if you spend $100 but not sure if it applies to Lego.

It says Excludes Lego for the $25, I think. Maybe they updated it? Actually it reads like the whole deal excludes Lego but I know it doesn't.

Yeah, I just bought a few Lego sets that went over $50 and got the promo. Here's an example category Lego City, which shows the offer in red print. The gift card should show up in your item inventory when you checkout.

Legoland, FL is also selling their Lego sets, but it's not just for Florida residents. I picked up the Legoland exclusive set. Kinda cool.

Put together Dom's Charger over the weekend. I've never done a Technic before. It was pretty cool to see it all come together and the gearing to work.

Re: Lego Talk!

I broke out Steamboat Willie and put it together with my daughter this week. I had no idea that the paddle wheel and smoke stacks move. That was a nice surprise during the build. Also, the inside of the ship is a color explosion. I know it's not unusual for LEGO to use randomly colored blocks inside a build, but this one was a rainbow mess of bricks.


I have been sitting on $100 in VIP credit for months not being able to decide what to buy, so LEGO made my choice easier last weekend:


Also props to LEGO and the USPS, this thing was on my doorstep in 3 days, rivaling Prime.

Re: Lego Talk!

I still have the Batmobile to build. The A-Wing looks great but doesn't look like "enough" to me. I dunno. Curious how it comes together!

Re: Lego Talk!

I have the Y-wing and BB-8 in the box still as well.

Batmobile is cool, but I'm kinda like Draven is with the A-wing. It doesn't look like a $250 build. I just googled thinking it'd be about $150 (which I would consider).

Lego recently announced a new Haunted House. I'll be picking it up to add to my Halloween sets collection.

Re: Lego Talk!

Looks cool but I'm having a hard time seeing 3,200 pieces (and invariably the price that comes with it) in that photo.

Still bummed I missed out on the last haunted house that kinda fit in with the modular line.

Yeah, it's just over 2-feet high, but I would imagine...a lot of small pieces. Probably make up about 20% of the set.

I'm seeing it... Lots and lots and lots of little pieces... especially on the inside.

Re: Lego Talk!

If you haven't assembled your Apollo/Saturn V yet, here's a video of someone else building it:

Note: The LEM doesn't fit inside the Command Module, it goes inside the shrouded area between the Service Module and Third Stage - just like in real life.

Re: Lego Talk!

I really, really, want one of those Apollo/Saturn V kits. Watching that construction video just makes it a bigger want. My wife'd kill me...

I have one of the Revell Apollo/Saturn V models from 1969 - constructed and stored in its box (which is designed to store the model after construction) so there's that.

Re: Lego Talk!

Not sure if you guys saw this Lego news:
Lego pauses advertising for police and White House products 'in response to events in the US'
In the aftermath of protests spurred by the killing of George Floyd, LEGO has paused advertising for products including police stations, city police vests and the White House.

The move reflects a recent trend among companies expected by the consumer to have a voice and take a stand on social issues.

"We stand with the black community against racism and inequality," Amanda Madore, senior brand relations manager for LEGO, said in a statement to USA TODAY.

"Our mission is to inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow, and that includes inspiring them to be tolerant, inclusive and kind. There is more to do and we are donating $4 million to organizations in the United States dedicated to non-profits that support black children and others that educate all children about tolerance and racial equality," added Madore, echoing the company's tweet from Wednesday.

Re: Lego Talk!

It's a great way to increase sales of those items. If they want to do that, whatevs.

My 100+ police lego minifigs will survive.
