A really, really excellent set. Good price per part ratio, I believe it's the only set with Gollum (I wish he had an interchangeable Smeagol head) and it looks really cool. Definitely the best spider Lego has ever made. Now I need a Treebeard set of the same size that comes with Merry and Pippin.
My least favorite coworker (for so many reasons) called me Twinkle Toes today. I think it was supposed to be an insult but it didn't work very well in context. I took the nickname gladly. I think that upset him. B)
So the Walmart I work at got them in a couple days ago and last night I spent 45 minutes feeling bags and managed to get a whole set. I wasn't looking to buy all of them at once, but the one I wanted most - Riding Hood - was the one I found last, so whatwasisupposedtodo. Anyway, the Space Marine is my favorite and Bunny Suit Guy or Tarzan are my least. The Bride's cape is unique - I wish they made more capes with that material.
So... Going to Brickfair might not be significantly more expensive than going to Brick Fiesta. But I feel like it would be significantly more awesome. And also would give me a month longer to prepare. Also it seems like all of my BZP friends go there and I would love to meet you all for reals. Should... should I try to do this?
So I still really want to go to Brickfiesta, but I really can't justify spending so much money to go. I just can't. But! If I were to split hotel costs with someone I could maybe swing it. So anyone interested in going and also sharing a room?
... Was actually a month ago, oops. It's been a pretty great six years, you guys! I know this might sound shocking, but I actually have a couple MOCs in the works right now. Crazy, right? Maybe I'll post them. Haha! No. But I might send them to Deevee soon, dunno. (Also I've been buying Mega Bloks lately, shhhhh)
ABSURD Just been herp derping. Anything notable happen while I was away? Mass Effect 3 was so awesome... until... well, you know. Still, I'm enjoying the multiplayer. So far I've unlocked Drell and Asari Adept, Quarian and Salarian Engineer, and Turian Solder. I loooove the Drell Adept. Just explosions everywhere.
I'd really like to go this year. Obviously it'll be easier than ever before, since I live in Texas now, and I'm about to start a full time job at Walmart (yay, only took me like four months to get hired somewhere) so I'll probably have money. It'd just be great to go to a Lego convention, finally. Just curious if anyone here (here being my blog, and not the entirety of BZP of course) is planning/considering going. It'd be cool to meet some of my internet friends, finally, if only to prove you'
"Maybe Tali's face is just spiders." -Collider, some other forum Edit: I guess he was referencing this. It's kind of funnier now. Edit 2: herp derp has tiny foul language never mind Edit 3: Still derping, apparently this is a tiny meme and it is referenced in Mass Effect 3 somehow?
I was just poking around on my majhost, looking for things to be ashamed of, and I found this. He is actually pretty cool for a combo model (he looks like I made him with Nivawk and Krekka, except maybe those silver Roboriders heads). Might sound like boasting but I'm mostly lamenting the fact that I'm not really satisfied with what I've been building lately. =/

Just got back from another (unrelated) job interview at Target (blarg I'm tired of this) I grabbed mouthwash (yay) and three blind bags. Luckily they were all unique, but still not Robot, Space Girl or Bandit. Got the Roman, Highlander and Skater Girl instead. The Skater Girl was the only one of those three I actually wanted to get at some point. But I hear the Roman is much sought after?
You guys, my friends are playing capture the flag tomorrow night. It will be awesome. Unfortunately, my brother got a ticket to a Mute Math concert (I love the band), but is unable to go. Also tomorrow night. And he's giving me the ticket. I want to do both a lot. =/ Also an issue is that the only person I know that is going to the concert is one of my brother's friends who I only sort of get along with. The only thing we have in common is ponies (my little). And while that would normally
Went to Target, got Rocka, Black Phantom, and the last five Series 6 Minifigs. Rocka looks a lot better in person than he did in any of the pictures I saw (even DV's). His color scheme works surprisingly well, despite containing gold, gunmetal, silver, bley, black and trans green. The only parts I don't like about him are the trans green Thornax gun part (would look better in a solid color), and his really short arm that gets in the way of things because of all the things sticking out of his g
While handing out fliers with some friends for a church event, I called out not one, but TWO girls wearing Rainbow Dash shirts (at different times). We brohoofed, and we all agreed Rarity was best. One went so far as to say she WAS Rarity. bestbirthday
