I recently tried to help a friend of mine selling off his old Lego sets, and while I managed to shift some sets for him (and buy a couple for myself), he had still a heap of his `first wave` left over in the end.So I made him a fair offer, including am…

I blame the GF and the Smurf for this, I really do.  It`s all their fault!!!!As I told before, I`d never watched the Harry Potter movies, nor read the books.  I didn`t feel bad that the Lego line was ending when I came out of my Dark Ages.&nb…

Posted on August 27th, 2015 under , . Posted by

I`m really going to have to up my tempo in these classic and regular build reports I think, as the backlog has gone totally out of hand.  If I kept going on the rate I`m posting one boxed set a week, I`m already into march 2016, and the classic bu…
