The "I acquired more LEGO" thread!

85 posts in this topic

I got 8010 in elementary school for good grades (before my parents realized that I didn't actually need rewards to get good grades, lol) so it was more than a bit of nostalgia that drew me to the new Darth Vader today.

The bulky shoulder armor felt more Episode III Vader to me than I would have liked, so I took off some parts and moved the cape up. I don't even really like modifying LEGO sets, but this looks a lot better imo

I acquired that sealed original Kopaka awhile back, well I finally got a sealed Exo Toa to build him.

 

Pretty stoked to build them now.

From a technical standpoint, the Exo Toa has some serious issues with stability and posing, but honestly I don't care because its just so cool

I got mine with just the interior bags sealed, but that was more than enough for the experience. Having it in hand made me realize just how upscaled the Bahrag were in the comics and cgi stills, though, which was a little weird.

I've bought them during the last two months, and i will probably buy more, so i can build every building and vehicle from Lego Rock Raiders PC Game:satisfied:

Those must have cost a lot!

The total cost so far is about 600 USD

So far...

I bought each of the original Toa Mata sealed for Christmas last year. They were quite fun to play with, until I rebuilt them into Toa Kaita. I left them on a bookshelf in my living room, and kids would come over and play with them.

I slightly regret putting my orange Vahi, transgender neon green Miru and Copper Noble Huna of Victory on the same shelf. All they did was switch the heads and masks around a few times; I fixed it when they left.

My minty childhood goal of Exo Kopaka is now complete.

 

I think my next Bionicle project will be building the Toa Mata Katia in unified color schemes.  I started a part list for a blue and silver/grey Wairuha some months ago but didn't get very far. Lego projects kind of got sidelined when I discovered a different toyline I follow on and off had a great year when I wasn't paying attention.

I bought this a few weeks ago for <£2.50, I forgot how much it was.

It's missing the microfigures and a few other pieces.

Had a ton of money left over from after Christmas, so I got myself 10243 Parisian Restaurant (I may or may not have an addiction to modulars :P) and 70312 Lance's Mecha Horse. I'm actually rather surprised at how nicely the horse transforms between the two modes (horse and bike), so I'm kinda tempted to get more of the sets when I get more cash.

I bought the game but my dad returned it :'(

He doesn't like games where you have to buy characters to beat the game.(skylanders,disney infinity,etc)

He says its a selling gimmick and i now agree seeing this madness.

I haven't bought legos in a while, I'm thinking of buying the Tardis.

This was indeed the same charity shop that I got the baseplate from. I'm not complaining though. :P

Once I own something, I tend to keep it. :rolleyes:

They're definitely not as good as regular LEGO. At least some of them come with some Technic parts. :nick:

I believe I the following sets:

3502: Bi-Wing

3503: Mini-Sonic (x2, One sealed)

3505: Aeroplane

3506: Motorbike (x2)

Personally, I was always more partial to Cabbage-Head the Islander.

I swear that's how they came in. I got them for parts, and now my hatless admiral is complete.
