Tesco are selling Lego sets for reduced prices right now, so here's a heads up for fellow Brits.

Yesterday I got 2 x Monster Hunters Werewolf sets just for the car. It was reduced at Tesco for £12.99, which is about £2.96 cheaper than even Amazon UK (Amazon UK price £15.97, RRP is £18). Everything else just went in my bits boxes.

I also got my latest Brickarms order via MinifigForLife (UK dealer). The lime green transparent chaingun they sent as a freebie is now welded by the Series 8 Santa minifig.  :mrgreen:

As well as that, I received the Gunslinger minifig from Series 6, and he has become a unit commander.

I now have two full units of minifigs:

So, I pretty much love that you have all these rough and tumble types joined by a sherlock and that dapper chaffeur fellow front right there.

Where did you get those dark brown crates? They look nice.

They're by Brickarms - http://www.brickarms.com/ - UK supplier is MinifigForLife - http://www.minifigforlife.com/theprostore/main.php

Yes, they are rather nice, and I already need more (they're full of guns, naturally).

They're new Brickarms items.

Thanks guys. I wanted to do something completely different to either hard Sci-Fi or Mediaeval - something a bit more rough and ready in nature. I guess I am tired of uniform troops from Warhammer 40,000 - Imperial Guard Armoured Companies and Sisters of Battle do get a bit same-y after a while.

Note that on each stand the guy/gal with the RPG7 has a pile of 1x1 round plates stacked near by. I thought it was an easy way to keep track of how many missiles they have each. The commanders have their own weapons, but the rest of each unit has 1x RPG7, 1x Rail Gun, 2x Spaz-type combat shotguns and 2x Blue Trans chain blades distributed amongst them.

I have not worked out any stats whatsoever yet. I will do so later, when I have time. I have a photojob later on today in London so probably won't get started on that until Tuesday (tomorrow I will be too busy sorting through images from today). It's another march by the Kurdish Diaspora in Edmonton, London, and we're likely to see at least 5,000 gather for it. What fun! :D

I got the Hobbit Barrel Escape set. It comes with 6 of the bottles and 2 wine glasses in addition to 3 barrels, two small casks, 3 the One Ring ( :lol: ), and 3 of those elvish halberds. Not to mention dwarves.

I'm super in love with it and it's perfect for a bar fight brikwar!

Sold some stocks... skimmed a little off the top...  stopped by Lego store... win / win / win =^.^=

Ninjago fire mech
Space Moon Buggy x2
Grave Halloween set
Helicopter poly bag
Series 9 minifigs
- Space Orc x4
- Knight
- Elf Babe
- White Power Ranger
- Mermaid
- Cyclops x2

I was sad I never got one of the zombies from minifig series 1 but thankfully I snagged the same minifig in the halloween set!  Poly bag was a promo.... free set for spending over $35 that day.  Really liked the gold visors and space suits so thats why I got the buggies.  The space orcs are epic; 'nuf said.  The 'Gundam' white space guy is way more cool than I thought; the real awesomeness is the back of his armor which has two posts about 3 plates tall.  The potential for clipping or sliding on epic upgrades are nearly infinite.  All in all a good haul!

This line of collecteebles is so darn awesome.

I ordered some Blacktrons (read: Terrorkhan) and M-Trons (read: manly men) really cheap - all figs under 1,50 euros, can't go wrong there. Also some parts that will hopefully allow me to build a duo of hardsuits and expand my Wolves a little, also some random accesories / parts / weapons for minifigs. All in all not a huge order, let's hope it arrives in one piece.

Got two of those Kai's Fire Mechs and a 2000 Point Station Cash card.

I've done a bit of customization on the mechs since these pics, but try and guess what I'm thinking:
