    DreamZzz isn’t a line o have any of, but several builds are inspired. That raven looks like so much fun. I’d have loved it as a kid. Despite really trying to cut back, I might nab a few just to support the creativity.

    Right there with ya. Really fun and creative line, but I just can't bring myself to invest (money and space) in another theme. Which sucks because I really want to support Lego's original IPs. I find them far more interesting than all the licensed sets and themes they have.

    Does anyone here own the motorized lighthouse? If so, what are your thoughts on it?

    My parents have it, it's a cool set, they also bought a light kit for it

    The motorized aspect is cool but you run it once or twice and than loses it's appeal

    Thanks! I've always loved lighthouses (I even used to build my own out of Legos as a kid), and the set looked really neat, but the price tag kind of put me off.

    That's great news, but any word on when that Waterpark GWP is coming? I saw a leaked image and it looks so damn fun.

    I bought the small $25 Carousel set the other month and that set was an absolute joy. This Waterpark gwp looks to be similar.

    Though I must saw, I am interested in the space dinner too. I would love to know when both hit so I can sort of plan out my purchasing to try and snag both

    No idea how widespread this is but I just found the Viking Village at Target on clearance for $90.

    Sometimes the scanners don’t show the current price. If it’s something I really want I’ll drag it to customer service.

    The Village actually scanned at $90 though. I was shocked

    I just bought some knockoff Lego at Dollar Tree and opened/built them while listening to some dope Synthwave. Join me if you like and check it out

    Gotta say, digging the Destroyer Droid. For what it is, with the ability to roll up, a really clean design. And once again, I'll hold up my wishlist for more prequel stuff - this year is surprisingly heavy on it, relatively speaking, but I'm still jonesing for a new N-1, Vulture, Hyena, maybe Naboo speeder, more CIS army stuff...
