• << Ben reported finding a few gems, so I’ll count this as a success.

    And then Greg canceled the order 😛

    I did, however, pick up parts from Greg on Sunday for a different order; it was my first time at his house. His Lego room is very fun, it’s like the Willy Wonka of Lego rooms, with all kinds of neat stuff tucked away here and there and o…[Read more]

  • << So, @bengood921 you and @randomdan volunteering to organize these going forward?

    Wait, what? This is reminding of when Dave Barry did his history of America and wrote that the founding fathers selected George Washington as the leader of the revolutionary army “because he was the strongest and the bravest and not actually in the room at the…[Read more]

  • I’ll have to check this out at some point also, I just use BrickLink and spend a lot of time sorting through stores.

    >> Does it take into account that some places have fees? … and that shipping from Canada costs a lot more than shipping from New York?

    This isn’t surprising, but it also costs more to ship from Canada than from Germany (which a…[Read more]

  • >>>> Why not the 21st or 23rd of April.
    >> Because PBF, Pete.

    More importantly, nobody wants to see the stupid-ass Yankees, even though it might be fun to watch them lose.

  • I had always thought that ‘box’ and ‘suite’ were interchangeable, certainly on espn.com the terms ‘luxury box’ and ‘luxury suite’ have been synonymous over the years in discussions of different stadiums in different sports. But looking at the Pirates’ webpage, it appears that in this case, as best as I can tell, that Matt is correct (sorry Josh).…[Read more]

  • I’m up for April 9. I got to see a game from a box reserved by CMU several years ago, and it was awesome, I definitely like that idea also.

    May 21 is a possibility also. For me, May 7 and and June 18 are both out (BFNE and BWC, respectively).

    For the group, I would suggest that July 16 is out, unless it’s a night game. That’s the BrickFest…[Read more]

  • What’s ‘character building’? Like when Calvin’s dad made Calvin do stuff that he didn’t like? Also:

    >> I don’t think there is any good place to stop period between Cranberry and Erie. Best to make the dash as quickly as possible.

    Yeah, I was gonna say, I don’t know what you were hoping for here. Maybe that really awesome discount Lego store on Wishful Thinking Avenue. Good luck finding that one.

  • Something came up, I will not be able to make it. I hope you guys have fun, and I look forward to seeing the pics.

  • Benjamin C Good replied to the topic Blogged in the forum MOCs 2 weeks, 6 days ago

    PS – Aaron’s definitely been blogged. My apologies to him.

  • Benjamin C Good replied to the topic Blogged in the forum MOCs 2 weeks, 6 days ago

    Btw, do we have an official Blogged count for the group? Here’s my count, but as you can see, I need some help. (And I admittedly am thinking mostly in terms of TBB, since that’s been my go-to blog for years, so you’ll have to let me know about any mentions on other blogs that I don’t know about.)

    Definitely blogged: Evan, Frost, Greg,…[Read more]

  • << The LUG should offer to be curator of one of the castle MOC’s, if she needs a home for them. The LUG will keep it intact and take it to shows. I think that is something that she would want for her uncle’s creations.

    First you need confirmation that they’re still intact.

    That’s a nice idea, but it means you’d need to make sure you have a vol…[Read more]

  • >> It might be just You, Dan and me so far.

    That’s okay, I’m still coming. My technical knowledge of cameras and lighting is extremely limited, so I’m interested in seeing how you guys do this. And I’m guessing there’s actually a lot of people in the same boat as Frost.

  • >> I don’t think I can swing two Lego weekends in a row


    >> Long drive, for that…

    It’s probably a shorter drive for you than for me. Some of us have nothing better to do. I’m still planning on coming, even if it’s a shorter visit.

  • Because I was searching through the forums today though, it did occur to me that another change that can be made is redoing how the topics are organized. Things are somewhat messy now, certain topics can be difficult to find, and people creating redundant threads is a problem. I assume that Josh laid everything out the best he could in 2012, but…[Read more]

  • One thing I really dislike here is the limit on scrolling through my own old posts. I don’t know if this a WordPress limitation or not, so I don’t know if we can do anything about it. For example, tonight I was scrolling through old posts (yes, I was looking for something specific; no, it wasn’t a trip through memory lane, dorks; no, I didn’t…[Read more]

  • >> Presuming the MOC’s are still intact, there is only one place for them to go. Honestly, she should contact Dan Brown at the Toy Brick Museum. Sets? meh

    Yeah, it’s not clear to me what she has in mind here. Is she hoping that somebody will buy the entire collection straight out? Is she hoping that we’ll keep his MOC’s intact and put them on d…[Read more]

  • >> Dude, the kiddos emulate you every time we do a tallest tower competition…

    Yeah but not on purpose, so that doesn’t count. Plus, I don’t know how many times you’ve run those competitions, but I have yet to be around for one.

  • As far as I can tell, this app isn’t compatible with real computers. Since I ditched my Kindle Fire HD (it was the worst), I don’t have any way to download this app, and apparently therefore can’t vote.

    (Also, the Amazon reviews are not off to a good start, although there’s a lot of idiots who write Amazon reviews.)

  • >> But I agree, it could be super fun to have these be anonymous on both ends, and guess (maybe even cast votes?) who built each one and whose work it emulates…

    That does sound fun. I think it’s unlikely that I’ll be emulated, but if I were, I’d have a hard time not saying ‘Whoo hoo! That one is totally the winner right there.’ Ben (who also l…[Read more]
