...and because I am a child, I now have the flying car.

I mean, come on like Bonn-o-Tron. It's a SHIELD flying car. If you had ever told me that there would be a LEGO set of a SHIELD flying car I would have scoffed.

I also grabbed some more series 9. I am certain one is the knight but I grabbed the other two blind.... all I can say for certain is that they aren't doubles of the ones I have (too slim).

So, funny follow-up: I was in the middle of putting it together when my roommate walked in, saw what I was doing, and said, "Dude, I bought you that for Saturnalia."

Sad trumpet.

What's wrong with having two? One for display, one for parts.

Or in my case, it would just be double the parts.

The obvious answer is to take one of them, trick it out and make it totally sweet, and just serendipitously put it in his room with a minifig that is obviously him at the wheel.

The REALLY obvious answer- and the one most likely to happen- is to return the one he physically got me and get myself the Bat/Tumbler set. It's what he suggested. I told him I'd always think of the set as a gift from him (we're both Marvel nerds) anyway, I just got to open it early.

Besides, I already got him the green Galaxy Squad truck.

Mom got this for my Nephew before she was informed she'd be getting both him and his little brother 3DSXLs...

Since it was such a good deal, she wondered if I'd want it.

Love how there are enough spare Golden pieces to build a Mega-Weapon facsimile.

Also tried to Brikwar my Nephew, who had brought his Vemon (Which he didn't use in the Brikwar...), a Snow-R2-D2 from the Advent Calender, and the SLENDERMAN armed with a chain!
I let him houserule that Slendy moved by teleporting, and he immediately abused this to take out one of my Pilot droid.
I also provides him with some Halo Mini-figs and a Raptor, with which he also attacked my Pilots, but his early gambit backfired when the rest of my droids blew them to smithereens!

Pics when I get around to it.

I got:

-The Star Wars Original Trilogy on DVD.
-Medieval Market Village, an awesome set, glad I got it before it went out of production. Very nice houses, and the accessories are great too.
-Attack of the Wargs, another pretty good set. The best part is of course the Wargs, but it also has a lot of other nice features, and lots of fire pieces.
-SW Fury-class Interceptor, awesome set all around.

I now have almost no room left to store legos.

I got a sweet GPS/PLB from my pops. Now if I get a mechanical injury while hiking alone, I can call directly to the park rangers/SAR teams and give them my exact location, with just one button press!

Only gift this year :| , and now I feel super-guilty for not getting him anything. I'll have to bake him a pie or something and give it to him for New Years...

I just completed my 3-part Saturnalia. Highlights include a catalytic converter from my grandfather's store, computer parts (motherboard, CPU, and RAM) from the other side of the family, and Brickarms from my parents.

Unfortunately this Yule, no one was cool enough to get me some Lego, however, with the money I got, I'm planning on buying one or two mid-priced sets. Any suggestions?

Despite the huge amounts of clothes (I was needing them since I can't wear merch all the time) and a copy of Battlefield 3, the rest of my Yule loot, some offered by my gf, friends and family, was pretty :666:

Image

A pack of t-shirt+CD of an awesome rising portuguese thrash metal band, Revolution Within.
A t-shirt of Black Sabbath's legendary '78s US tour plus a Deluxe Edition of Master of Reality.
A bunch of cool guitar picks.
January 2013 UK Metal Hammer that came with some nice extras, including a poster-calendar with a different band for each month.
That small, awesome, black and withe sticker saying "Metal God"
And best of all, a ticket for Iron Maiden's 2013 tour, they'll be coming by around May.


Fuck Yeah.

Set Suggestions:

In all seriousness, I would recommend the Galaxy Squad Vermin Vaporizer. It looks like it has tons of fun and a cool design, the only bad thing is that it has one of those lame beetle people instead of the mosquito aliens.
