Lego sets are mostly MOC fodder anyways

...Half-Price Books near my work got some vintage Lego sets in somehow. I mean, REALLY vintage. If I'd had $150, I could have gotten Yellow Castle IN THE BOX... :evil: They had a bunch of 80's era castle stuff, but Yellow Castle was the only one they had that I'd never had.

Got these, though:

This will actually be the third one of those raft sets I got, but I never had any of the Islander sets when I was a kid. They came out when I was in High School and went through a Dark Age that lasted until my early college years. I blame... um... Huh, what WAS I doing during that time? Oh yeah, playing D&D a lot...

Again, how do you think *I* feel?!? If I had a spare $500 lying around, I could have gotten Yellow Castle, the original 80's King's Castle, the original Black Seas Barracuda, and the Carribean Clipper!!! :evil:

Thing is... I already HAVE three of those four, from the original releases. King's Castle came out when I first got into Lego, and I got it as a Manly Santa Day present one year in the 80's. Freaking Yellow Castle though... NEVER had that...

One would think that it would be cheaper than 100$ at half-price books. though it is considered a collectors item by some
i weep for you :cry:

Huh...

Target Exclusive, apparently. $20. Kind of like the little scenes on the back of the box.

Image

Sorry, don't know why the camera washed out the color on these photos. You get a lot of stuff for $20! 4 minifigs, a dog, a bicycle, a trash can, the little food stand, and more! Lots of donuts and pie bits and cookies. If you like food pieces, this isn't a bad way to go. If you're doing a city scene, this isn't a bad way to go. It's a COFFEE SHOP. Seriously, what Lego city DOESN'T need a coffee shop? Oh, and they sell pastries too, obviously.

Image

Came with lots of extra bits as well! The banana is supposed to be in the trash can, but I left the lid of the can on.

Image

Nurse has her cell phone, and the Barista has a double-sided head. One side is all "I'm a happy coffee seller," the other is all "mmm, smells like good coffee," as shown here.

Image

Buuuuuuuut I think Lego needs to make some different 'money' pieces, cause DAMN, that's a LOT of money for a coffee! NICE tip though, if that's what it is for! :warhead:

Overall, nice little build, would make a good little structure for a more open area in a Brikwars battlefield. Or for a food fight... hmm........... :twisted:

Holiday loot has started early!

I had a visit with an old friend of mine today. He's had a bad year, been in and out of the hospital several times, so we haven't been able to catch up for a while. I brought his Manly Santa Day gifts from last year (which I had misplaced for almost 5 months while he had surgery so I couldn't get it to him), his birthday present, and his Manly Santa Day gift for this year. He's hard to shop for, but I managed to find him some chase Batman minifigs he had missed out on, so he was very happy.

In exchange, he gave me my holiday/birthday present:
Image

He's VERY into Batman, and has... connections... that I lack. Truly, his connections are good to him. Have to admit, little jealous, but he's worked HARD to get his lifestyle. He's also generous to a fault, but he gets really good deals on this stuff and keeps telling me not to feel guilty or anything about it...
