    Meh no interest in the NES; I need my funds for 4 copies of Andy Warhol mosaic :D 

    however it’s a really cool model and it shows how creative some of these adult oriented sets are getting.

    One of my first Lego SW purchases was the UCS Super Star Destroyer. It's still displayed behind me on a shelf and it's very impressive. However, buying more SW Lego sets I more and more came to realise I like mini-figure interaction: it's even more important to me than accuracy. (I also like to be able to pick them up.) Thus UCS sets are in most cases not really something that interests me.

    However, a MOS Eisley set could be interesting. It's almost guaranteed to have mini-figure interaction and have multiple displays within the set.

    What should I do if a Bricklink seller forgets parts of my order? I contacted them a few days ago, And they’ve read the message but haven’t responded.

    Reviews are trickling out for the next wave of Star Wars sets. For what they are, they all seem to be extremely overpriced, especially the Night Buzzard which has no interior.

    This is literally the only way to store figures.

    My husband ordered Barracuda Bay for me this morning. So excited for August!

    Been looking forward to the Barracuda since it was released back in March!

    That said, I now have to make a few adjustments to my display space to accommodate the footprint and silhouette of Barracuda Bay

    This is going to sound stupid, but I forgot it had a pirate ship mode, haha! I'm going to turn it to that now.

    I know, I've only owned one Pirate set before this one, 2009's 6240: Kraken Attackin', and that was just an octopus, a raft, two pirates, and a parrot. This set has all the bells and whistles of a proper Pirates set.

    Hmm, so now the dilemma as far as what will be more cost effective - buy the set for the figures and sell off the ship or just hope to find the figures for cheap?

    Well the whole box is there so presumably it was kept in the box somewhere under good conditions. Sunlight is the biggest offender for yellowing lego bricks.
