    Heard a rumour about a death star set with around 11,000 pieces. Will be interesting to see how that looks.

    I’m assuming that’s the Collector series set? If so there’s my next dream set lmao

    I'd think so. The guy who used to do evening card breaks on twitch for Dave& Adam's card world quit and does evening twitch feeds where he discusses stuff like that.

    Me and the wife went to New Orleans this weekend, and went to the mall. They had a LEGO store, and the new Harry Potter sets look pretty awesome.


    Also, the LEGO store is an amazing place.

    I went into the LEGO store a few weeks ago and looked around. They said with the large size and weight of the box, they would use a dolly to take the kit to your car.

    Here's an extensive review of the build. Love that they added little facts and whatnot in the instruction booklet.



    Now I know my dream job. Guy who builds LEGO sets on youtube. Wonder how much this guy makes from his channel.

    Edit: I see that this guy was actually a designer for LEGO.

    Didn’t get the Titanic set on early release day, but I got it on back order day. Supposed to show up mid-dec. I can’t wait to not put it together anytime soon.

    I am 99% confident my folks got me the Home Alone set for my b-day so I've been watching some youtube stuff on it. One dude made an off hand comment that the Titanic is the best set ever, makes me want to carve out a spot for it even more.

    So we moved over the summer, and are having our first kid in February/March. In this transition I lost my "man cave" and don't really have anywhere to build/display my lego sets, and it breaks my heart :(

    Get the kid involved as quickly as possible, so you have an excuse for transforming an area.

    Think I've posted this elsewhere on TMB but this is the little Lego space my buddy and I built for my son when he was 4.

    He's obviously outgrown it since but it was perfect for a long time.

    Thats the hope. My wife loves Harry Potter and I’ve bought her some sets over the years. Hoping that can be the bridge that gets her into legos.

    Hell yea. It’s an amazing build.

    I need to break down what I had started on the build and restart. I moved over the summer and it got banged up/broken.
