Yeah, it's the UCS model. All the bags were numbered, and in order surprisingly enough, but rather than just two or three bags per section, it's about eight. And with the numbers faded on about half the bags, it does make things difficult in places when looking for a piece and realising you're missing a bag.

I turn 50 :dread: next month, and I've got the Ninjago City gardens lined up for the big day. :toot:

Looking forward to it. Do I rebuild the other two sets first so I can add the new set to the display? :)

Do I even have time?!

A section or two a day (depending on how big they are) and they should be finished before the big day and the start of the new set.

I share your excitement pain, man - I have that anniversary this year, too :dread: .

I’m still waiting on my Bonsai tree ordered in the 4th to be dispatched. It was back ordered and should have been dispatched by now but the date kept moving.

I'm waiting for the stock to go live again on that as well, you could order on Amazon with a backorder date of early Feb so fingers crossed it happens soon.

No idea, yet. Be waiting until it arrives before sorting anything like price and such. We'd bought it for around £250, so probably near that price.

Further info including an offer when it goes live

Early buyers of the brand new LEGO 10295 Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Targa will receive a limited-edition Porsche owners’ pack gift-with-purchase.

The exclusive pack includes a certificate of ownership, an official LEGO Porsche card wallet, and four unique art prints based on Porsche 911 advertisements, all wrapped up in a collector’s wallet.

You’ll be able to snag the gift-with-purchase by ordering the 2-in-1 10295 Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Targa when it launches for VIP members on February 16 at LEGO.com. The freebie will apparently only be available to VIP members, suggesting the availability window may end on March 1, when the set becomes available to non-VIP members in LEGO Stores and at LEGO.com.

I always thought it was weird that they got the Sonic license for Lego Dimensions but then never made any kits to go with it. Wonder if this'll lead to some larger non-Ideas Sonic sets.

Aside from finally getting an answer about the Sonic one, the latest Ideas review was a bit crap, though. Not least because at least two of the sets they were reviewing had already been done by Lego "officially" by the time they were reviewing them :fp: (there was a Bonsai set and "Lego Doggos" in the latest batch of 10,000 club entrants)

Almost seems like they need to change the criteria for what does and doesn't get reviewed, considering the amount of sets that hit the 10,000 mark and then immediately get cut down. 35 sets reviewed, one is actually getting made.

I always think most of the stuff which they don't approve is more interesting than what they do. I like the Van Gogh however.

The order I'd placed from Lego on the 12th of January has spent weeks going from Oldbury, Leicester and Belgium.

According to DPD, it's due to finally arrive tomorrow.
Taking bets on how strawberry floated it is.

Just noticed the next batch of Ideas 10,000 club they're reviewing includes a Lego Colusseum :slol: There's another one that's clearly not getting approved

Just noticed the police station, too :lol: They really need to filter these a little better

I've had the same issue when I ordered my Lego on 1st of January and it arrived almost three weeks later. I rang up to Lego and they said it was an issue with Brexit and Covid-19 test for the drivers.

You should get it tomorrow.

The knock-off LEGO UCS Falcon is complete, after two or so weeks of building. It does look great now it's fully built. Dunno when I'll get another set, but it will be a lot of fun. Since the Speed Champions Mini Cooper set seems to have been discontinued, I could do with a new one of those to finally get my hands on.

Also, if... anyone needs any guns... I've got enough here to supply a minifig army.

Mate that looks awesome! You'd never know at a glance that it's not the official one.
I gotta get me one of those :D

Also, it total deserves a cool display stand:

It does look awesome. And that display stand would be great if I had the room. Unfortunately, it'll probably only last a few weeks before being stripped down again. I also had some trouble with the minifigs, so Rey is currently manning the lower gun platform (which is inaccessible once fully built) and old Han Solo has broken both of his ribs (the characters are in pieces so they need building as well. I perhaps applied a bit more pressure than I should have trying to get one of his arms onto the torso).

That replacement I mentioned two weeks back is in transit from Hong Kong, so an eBay listing should be going up in about two weeks from now. It will be collection only, though.

Can't remember the exact price, but I know it was more than 50% less than the RRP.
