I own that set too, as well as the Fire Spinner 360 and the Side Rider 55. I also have a poster of those four cars in my bedroom. :P

Sweet ride! I haven't bought a new set for a little while, you've inspired me to visit my nearest LEGO store again.

Look what I found in Poundland! Ayliffe! Jimbob! You may want to check your local Poundland to see if they have any.

Wow, the Mask of Light movie... I remember getting it when I was like 9, back then I thought it was cool...

Here's a fun story from me: long, long ago I bought a box of bricks on the flea market that I thought was just random all that time, but recently I found out that it's the set 6054 Forestmen's Hideout, 90% complete. I only have to fill up a few bricks.

Mask of Light could've been really cool, had they done it right. But they didn't do it right. The story has a lot of potential so its really sad to see it spent so halfheartedly - the film really should have been a proper climax to BIONICLE.

Now that one I can see! Nice! The most annoying thing is when unique parts are missing.

They sell LEGO movies (well, let alone a movie that is actually somewhat decent at all) like that in Poundland? I've only ever popped in there to grab toolboxes for storing LEGO parts. Thanks, I'll have to take another look in there some time!

Yeah, guy has a few hits and a few misses for me in his first video, but overall I agree with the gist of things. Its a mediocre movie, and Jaller's VA was awful.

The whole Lord of the Rings bit was silly, though. It's not like they saw it in 2003, then sat down and made this movie. It was in development concurrently. Yeah there are similarities, but that's because they both follow the quest story archetype that literally everyone uses.

They sell used CDs and DVDs that are supposedly refurbished. This happened to be at the front of the shelf. It just depends on what they get in.

Well, I've gone a little eBay crazy lately.  I have 5 different orders of Throwbots/Slizers and Roboriders on the way.  (And a normal Lego set.)

The first one actually showed up yesterday, a sealed The Boss Roborider.
Please login or register to see this attachment.  

Never opened in 14 years.  Open it up just to discover its missing one of the rubber wheels.  Awesome.  

The upside is that I ordered an incomplete Millenia Slizer set that should be getting here today and I wasn't necessarily going to use the (identical) tires for a MOC.

Yeah, I really like that ship. It really has a "modern retro" feel to it.

 

Sorry to double post, but I got another ship.

6979 Interstellar Starfighter.

And here it is next to Benny's Spaceship Spaceship SPACESHIP

I bought all 6 because it was shipping from Canada.  It was going to be 20 dollars whether or not I bought one or all of them. (And they were cheap too.)  

 

They're all actually in the frame, (last picture in album) I'm just going to display only one at a time.

Yeah, they're basically new.  I believe they're promotional posters that a store would have received to put up, not to sell.  The seller had multiples of most of them (I got the last Tahu) so I'm wondering if he owned, worked, or knew someone at a Lego store or maybe he was a rep for Lego at the time.  He also has 20+ of a Bionicle pin that a different seller says he purchased at a Lego store.  


They're rare enough that he had to create a custom item for them at Bricklink, which normally has even the most oddball gear.  I could be completely wrong, but I couldn't find any other information out about these.  They're the same image as the mini-posters, so google isn't much use.

I found this brick separator buried in the dirt while replacing my fence yesterday.
