I suppose I would post new Lego, but I haven't bought any in a long time.
Last two years I've made less than 25k each year. Stupid economy :fist:

Yeah, I did tell her it clearly said 25,00, but she said something like 'oh, it must have moved' (but the price tag also had the name of the set on it, so...). They're aware there's a problem, she'll see it for herself when she goes to put the box back. My plan is to return on Tuesday to pick up the Mill Village Raid and see if they've changed the price of the cart accordingly (I'm pretty sure she wouldn't have sold it for 25,00), if they haven't it'll influence my future interest in the store :twisted:

Is it common where you live to use a comma instead of a decimal to separate whole currency from change? I was going to mock you for it, but that would only have been possible if you had three zeroes after the comma. So now I'm just curious, I know that in some spanish speaking countries that's how it's done.

One day'll I shall rectify not owning the castle/village/other village/joust sets, once I get a job or something. Maybe if I didn't have 3 expensive hobbies running at the same time, lol

Went to Toys R Us today looking for Mirkwood Archer polybags. I walked out of the store happily with these:

Those are pretty sweet.

edit: dangit, I received my BL order, and the most expensive minifig is missing from it. Luckily the seller has a good reputation and will probably resolve this... I hope.

All I currently possess:

Image

3 x series 8 (Santa, Pirate, Cowgirl); 4 of the Pharaoh's Quest sets (Only missing Scorpion Pyramid) for 8 adventurer minifigs, plus the shitty bagged car & plane, plus the Mummy's Mask set; Indiana Jones, Henry Jones Snr, Mutt Williams, and Marion.

Image

Out of all the sets (and Mummy's Mask) so far I got 7 mummies, 3 flying mummies, a Scarab, a Cobra, and a Sphinx (Look at those shoulder joints - Mech material right there). You can already tell that these things are not going to stay built for long. I am already thinking of how to do a giant Egyptian Mech with Anubis Head - yeah the head is good enough to keep but needs to go on one BIG Mech.

On order I have: Pharaoh's Quest magnet set with adventurer, mummy, and Anubis guard; detective from series 5; German Soldier 2 from Raiders of the Lost Ark, 5xlever rifles from Brickarms via Minifigforlife and the Spy gun set from the same.

The details on EvilBay say that the magnet minifigs are glued on the stands but I have never found this to be the case with other sets I have had - Indy, Henry and Marion were from a magnet set and they were not glued on at all. I am taking a chance there but one I am willing to take for how cheap they were...

If they're cheap, it might be because they're glued. Since (because I don't assume you have baseplates) you'll be putting plates below your troops anyway, I suppose this shouldn't be such a problem even if they're glued though.

Adventurers vs. mummies is a fight I'm looking forward to. I actually put those guys together once against my castle doods, they're pretty awesome (propellor-kills! 8) )

It's the standard Lego fridge magnet set with the special brick with a magnet behind and a sticky up bit with two studs to hold the minifig on:

Very unlikely to be glued. unless the seller did it themselves.

The ealier magnets weren't glued, but they started gluing them in 2010 (?). Pharaoh's Quest came out in 2011, so they're definitely glued. The Indiana Jones ones aren't because they came out in 2008-2009. :rtfm:
