- Lego WANT of the Day
The Lepin stuff I’ve seen has been fantastic quality… And while a lot of it is direct copies others are unique, original kits. But bootLego is a line I’d not want to cross myself, maybe that makes me a mug who’ll buy overpriced plastic but a big part of it is the direct line to childhood…Posted 1 year agopeteimprezaSubscriber
“I was showing off my Saturn V to a mate a few weeks back. I picked it up and said “it’s surprisingly robust…” and at that exact moment the third stage popped off the rest of the model, hit the coffee table and burst into a hundred pieces”
Did something similar the other day. Damage was minimal luckily. 😳Posted 1 year agosirromjSubscriber
been wanting the Technic CLAAS XERION 5000 for a while but resisted when it was a good price
And failed to resist over Xmas break and ordered one. Email after new year to say no luck matey. Found a more expensive one on ebay and after much soul searching… OH even approves due to her love of tractors… Waited ten days until expected delivery passed… Emailed seller who said drop off point for hermes parcels had been raided, sorry have a refund… So third time lucky hopefully on bricklink.com, a UK seller with good praises, for a bit less than the ebay one… Really wanting a goddam lego tractor now!Posted 1 year agocraig_wMember
Didn’t think I’d be the first to post about this:

just not my bag – not keen on the flat exterior panels. they should do some resto-mod versions of the 80s technic stuff.
Recently bought a Batman Killer Croc Sewer Smash set for my son from a charity shop for £30. Someone had bought it new, taken out the figures and then given it to a charity shop unbuilt! What’s that all about?Posted 1 year ago
Spend an unhealthy amount of time on legotrackworld for years first seems to be the model my mate followed…
most of the big sets will have 1 or two that will be specific to the set but as with anything, short production runs or ones that didn’t sell too well help values. They also do vlimited edition ones that they give out at shows, or just release a few hundred into general circulation, such as this chap… my mate had and sold 2.

The Bond James Bond Aston Martin DB5 anyone?Posted 1 year ago
The Bond James Bond Aston Martin DB5 anyone?
Not sure I like it, not curvy enough. There are better fan made versions out there IMO. Also I think they missed a trick not making it minifig scale & bringing out a collectible Bond minifigure series – that would be awesome!Posted 1 year agoCougarSubscriber
Holy thread resurrection, Batman!

I have 3 of the Lego modular buildings (cinema, brick bank and market square) and have space for one more. Anyone got the detectives office or pet store that they’d consider selling for a not insane amount to save me going down the Lepin/other knock off route?Posted 4 months ago
Yep looks awesome, sadly was already on back-order by the time I bought it! 😭 Will look great with the Saturn V though when it eventually turns up!
Make sure you sign up for a Lego VIP card to get points, plus 6% cash back from Quidco. Also if you buy it this week you’ll get a free Rocket Ride model which if you don’t want it is going for around £20 on eBay at the moment!Posted 4 months ago
Mrs was encouraged to buy a placcy bag in Meadowhall to qualify for freebie Rocket Ride which is a quality little model that a couple of my kids built last night. Like Kennyp I had no idea about this thing until yesterday morning but had to have it in conjunction with Saturn V.Posted 4 months ago
