Lego Store Purchase...

Set #4993: Cool Convertible
Pieces: 648



Yep, that's right; it's not technic! Heh, I haven't purchased a system set in years. The reason for my purchase of this set was due to an upcoming project that I'm wanting to work on which involves the colors of purple and white. Obviously, this set was for the latter color requirement. It was really interesting; I found myself walking around the ubber-cool LEGO store looking for sets based on content and pieces as opposed to theme for the first time. I considered getting a Star Wars set or perhaps Racers or even one of the new Power Miners sets. I decided against these due to either price or (especially for the Power Miners) the colors weren't what I was looking for. My eye settled on the Convertible mainly for its larger quantity of white curvey pieces and small connection parts; it should prove helpful in MoCing.

The LEGO store was pretty sweet overall, and the LEGO sculptures were nifty too. I found the sale section Neaku, but they pretty much only had the Star Wars "Twilight" ship available; which, granted, was on sale for $50 (normally $100). I wasn't the least bit interested in it though. Oh, and they had the main Indiana Jones set on sale too (I'm not sure how much though). The store was all you guys hyped it up to be! happy.gif

My plan is to build the set as soon as I get home but then I put it up on display until I get enough money to put in a good-sized you-know-which-site order (which will probably have to wait until my birthday, which in turn is at the very beginning of August). I'm rather glad that it's gonna have to wait until August though; I'm busy at the moment with other things. Personally, I'm pumped about just building the thing as I haven't actually built a large LEGO set in quite some time. smile.gif

Oh, and Blue Fire, my family had deep dish pizza this evening for supper, and it was superb! biggrin.gif In addition, the weather was beautiful! It was perfect for walking around the city indeed.

Just thought I'd mention what I got (did I choose well?), and I may be able to post more about the trip sometime this week...

Good choice dude. I don't own it, but it seems to be a great set. Happy MOCing!

Glad you had a nice trip. I've been meaning to pick up the Cool Convertible for quite some time now.

You got pretty lucky. The weather's usually crazy.

Bleh PaB always has horrible parts in my experiences. <_>

I hate it when other people post their loot and its crazy good and none of it was available at mine. <_>
