    The End and the Crafting box look the best. If I were to get any, it'd be those.

    Shame they couldn't get creative with minifig animals and had to resort to special parts, but at least they're cute. :D

    I have heard the possibility of getting the Wing as a set was denied on the movie's commentary, though...

    The Enderman turned out great. I'm glad it did, too. That spider...

    As I noted...yeah, if that were actually the case, would buy for sure. Would I be nuts if I wanted the $12 set to be a Reliant Robin and Jeremy Clarkson , and the $20 one an exploding caravan? :lol 

    Edit: and then there is this... LEGO Stig

    Great news about the next modular!

    I wouldn't hold my breath for Wayne manor, too pricey for the Ideas line

    Yesterday I picked up the ARC-170 poly at TRU. I also dipped my toes into the KO minifig game with Phoenix. The print is definitely solid, no complaints there BUT while her head is double sided, it is not removable nor does it turn. Can't complain too much as it was only $4 shipped and also when taking I to account I'll never spend $150-$200 for the comic con version. I also have a Shazam on the way from another seller. I imagine the head issue will be the same but I only spent $3 shipped on that one

    I don't know if this has been discussed before, but I was re-arranging my desk today, and when I took metalbeard to move him, I noticed he had a tiny crack running up one of his gold shoulder bits. So I guess he has GPS. Great.

    Which one is worth getting: Benny's Spaceship Spaceship Spaceship or Super Secret Police Dropship?

    I actually prefer the dropship. A little repetitive in the engines but the shape is really neat and the functions are a little more fun to me. Also, the tiny jail at the back really reminds me of space police. Benny's ship is probably a slightly more fun build but the ship doesn't jazz me in the same way but is nice. The engines are very slick, the wing-extending gimmick is fun but a little underwhelming, and the wingtip ships are awesome. I think it is a touch too big to really be swooshable.

    So all in all, it sounds like both are worth getting? Dropship looks like it has better minifigs (more minifigs for a lower price), but Benny's Spaceship looks to be a more entertaining build.

    Well that sounds like a great time to pick up a couple sets... And since my wife agrees, looks like it'll be a fun October. :)

    made two orders this AM to get 2 of the Chima bikes and 2 of the space sets...some super heroes sets I was missing and all the new Mixels...have to get going on builds for the next Brickset competition. Can't beat 2 bone polys per purchase.

    Saving my bigger ticket individual purchases (mixer, arkham, tumbler (?), minicooper (?)) until at least October. Not sure if I'll risk waiting for a 3x points day like they had in Nov last year.
