Aren't a lot of these sets made with the crappy Chinese plastic?

I am tempted to open the polybags to take a look at the other 6 original paintings you mentioned but that will dramatically diminish their value in coming years, right?
Somewhere i have got a pack of Ninjago cards as well.

Actually, if i ever come around to creating my own statcards for Brikwars i already have some perfectly sized cardboard pieces to glue them on like Bonn-o-Tron. :-)

Picked this up the other day:

I mainly got it for the some of the parts in it, but I decided to build it just to try it out and came away with mixed feelings. First, I hate how the treads move around and get stuck on the rest of the vehicle, making driving it difficult. I guess the intention was to have the spikes on the treads attack enemies, but it totally doesn't work as intended. The vehicle was fun to put together though, so it's not completely bad.

If you bought it for parts why did you apply the stickers? :???:

Just got this.

Overall, it's a nice set. It's got a pretty cool sliding door on it. Though, there were a lot of stickers. I wouldn't have minded if they were printed, because the patterns actually look pretty cool.

I love the crocodiles so I bought that. Then a friend got me one as a b-day present. Like you said, parts only.

It's not my pic, just grabbed the first one I found off of google.

Also, I've seen a display of the big Crocodile boat, and it's completely awesome looking.

I pretty much always put the stickers on out of habit.

I pretty much never put the stickers on anymore. I have the sheets stacked up somewhere on my building desk in case I find a use for them.

If I want the model itself I apply the stickers. If I want the parts I don't. I bought 3 fire mechs which I didn't apply stickers too since I'm planning on replacing red bits for other colors. But I applied all the stickers to the golden mech because it's awesome and I don't wanna change it.

mom's school got a big donation of bonkles and technic stuff, and I got to browse around:

Scrounged together two near-complete slizers, but the real moneyshots are the old motors+remotes, both of which work though one motor is missing the battery cover.

... I guess I can build a motorized spacetank now.

Wait! Ice Daemons? They do Ice Daemons now? I see I will require a visit to a toy store in the very near future. Ice Daemons vs. Ice Planet dudes would be awesome.
