    FINALLY got around to getting my Spooky Girl, a year or more now after finishing LEGO WORLDS (SONY PS4)
    in which she is a playable character, -becoming my instant mainstay- just as soon as i had managed to eventually unlock her, at least;

    You know, given the current state of Transformers collecting, where you often have to preorder figures during an extremely limited time window months in advance in order to secure a copy, is refreshing being able to enter a toy store and find entire shelves full of Lego sets, including limited and expensive ones. So much that I nearly bought on impulse the Discovery and the T-rex rampage set, and I was only able to hold back because next week I should get a 350 euro Amazon coupon. Now I have to decide which one I want the most....or if I simply should buy both.

    Stickers are available from several places, but if you want it to look like mine, you'll want the actual printed pieces. I got them from here, the print quality is like 99% as good as Lego's own:

    Stunning Custom Prints on Genuine LEGO® Parts by MillionPrintsDesign

    All of his shuttle pieces seem to all be gone right now though, he's likely prepping for another run. (they've sold out at least twice AFAIK)

    However---Enterprise only ever had its name in the earlier position, on the cargo bay door itself. Nobody's been able to print on those huge pieces yet AFAIK. (and is part of the reason I'm waiting on doing an early-version Columbia). Stickers may be the only way to do Enterprise. I think ebay is the best bet for stickers, something like this:
    NASA SPACE SHUTTLE STICKERS LOT for LEGO 10231 10213 60081 30315 3367 ETC +++ | eBay

    (I can't vouch for that particular set being the right size though)

    Thank you for the pointers. That would be sweet. It's going to tricky to find ways to build the cover that goes over the aft section.

    So hopefully Midnight I can get the Chamber of Secrets, The Adidas Shoe, Charles Dickens Tribute and Double Points.

    Picked up Space Shuttle Discovery for the double VIP Points, Adidas minifig GWP, and the Charles Dickens GWP (although I already have like three of these, lol).

    I'm tempted to pick up something else for another Adidas minifig and double points (I have enough wracked up for $20 off my next purchase) and I'm staring at the Daily Bugle now.

    I've seen a lot of KITT MOCs in my time but that has to be one of the best looking one I've laid eyes on. The truck build is excellent too! I fear that it may be too big and parts intensive, and the truck would most likely be dumbed down and shrunken in size, if not axed entirely. Still, I'd love that version of KITT and all of the minifigs included to be made as an official set.

    I've kinda stopped following Lego releases and was pleasantly surprised to see this at Walmart. I never picked up the Adam West Batcave for space reasons, so I was happy to pick this up.

    It was a pretty nice build overall, and the end results look pretty good. I like that it gives you the option of smoothing out the hood if you don't like the stud shooters.

    As a display piece, I'm pretty impressed by this. I think my only real complaint is that there's no Robin to round out the minifigure selection.

    Have there been any leaks regarding more Adam West Batman sets? I'd love a second chance at picking up more of these minifigs and vehicles.

    Just went on and ordered this set. I had forgot all about it because last time I checked lego,it was out of stock and I haven't found it at any stores..and then I ordered the Creator 911 to get the bonuses. Did they do a Batcave set with classic figures?

    Yup, in 2016.
    No Adam West sets in the immediate future. Leaks for the later half of 2021 indicate we're getting a UCS Tumbler as well as a minifig-scaled version.

    I'll take what I can get. It's a shame I missed out on the GWP Keaton Batmobile.

    I could see them doing a couple more little sets like the Batcycle or Batcopter. Honestly I’m not sure why they haven’t done more with classic Batman TV and movies. Must be some weird mandated WB thing.


    I think I ordered it when it was on Backorder at the end of April and I just got it last week from shop @ home. It’s a nifty little set but really should have come with Robin.

    Any word if the minifig Tumbler is a promo or mass release? I don’t want to go through what happened with the 89 again.

    You could Bricklink it pretty easily. The only exclusive thing is the sticker for the display stand plaque which you could just leave off. I ended up ordering a bunch of pieces to colour swap anyways. The interior was all tan and yellow which I made black and dark bluish grey. I also replaced the barrels on the sides with black ones once they were available from the ideas pirates set.
