The Damage Report

Posted by Octodad , Jul 07 2014 · 164 views

The total for my birthday Bricklink splurge came to $113.36, including shipping.

That's..... actually less than I spent to build the Micro Manager. Guess I didn't actually splurge any more than I usually do. :P

Got some good pieces, though, including a bunch of Technic beams and such in assorted colors, which will lower my dependence on black or grey versions of them, thus allowing me to be more colorful.

I also got a bunch of tan, so maybe I can attempt my Gundam in true Buster Gundam colors like Makaru wanted.

Oh wow. I've never spent that much on Bricklink in one go. Hope it results in some great MOCs!

I tend to spend money is large bursts, but i also don't spend it often. that way it hopefully balances out.

That is a hefty bricklink order, but if you buy from decent sellers, it should be a good deal.  That must be loooots of bricks.  My bricklink purchases:  "I need a face and a hairpiece in order to get a Mako minifig made...  okay, this shop has a decent price for what I need, but the base sale is ten bucks...  let's see...  ooh, these bone pieces are 10ยข each!   Let's get 100 of those...  um...  how about some skulls to go with that...  aaaand...  um...  hmm..."  after another hour of browsing, Tekulo decides to view his cart of interests and get the price down closer to $20 instead of the original $10 he was shooting for.  

 

I have lots of bone bricks now...  =|

Honestly, you can make this sound like some kind of crusade for justice all you want (I'm going to hope that some of how you worded it is just meant as hyperbole to make a point, though?), but it just comes across to me as being anti-fun and anti-imagination.

 

There's a time and a place for joke entries to place high in a contest (actually no there really isn't but w/e), but the first site-wide BZP contest is certainly not one of those times.

 

The first entry offended my eyes.

 

Well, this was probably in the bottom 3 comics I've read in my life. Didn't make much sense, and some things were hard to read because of the coloring and font style.
