Bought four bags of Dots to get the Hidden Side freebie. No regrets yet.

I bought one of those bags as well. Nice pieces I’ll try to use in them

I got the recent sith troopers battle pack, it feels great to have some lego around as moral support.

The vehicle is simple but it's quite nice, sort of like those little carts from takeshi's castle.
The minifigs are all really nicely made, they look really cool, the one problem is of course the guns, the one of the vehicle looks ok, but they don't suit minifigs at all, it greatly reduces the coolness of the figs when they hold them, (IMO)Otherwise, I'm certainly satisfied.

I think the stud and disc launchers some of the cooler new pieces of LEGO, to be honest. If you attach a long chain or rope to a stud launcher projectile you can create a harpoon effect.

I didn't think of that, but I do think they are better suited to vehicles though, I guess I can buy a few extra guns during my inevitable bricklink orders and keep them as special weapons.

Can't wait to send out a big sentient colored egg to murder your minifigs in a colorful spring-scented fashion.

Along with that I made another BL order. 16 more white orb joints with eye patterns, 4 orange orb joints and some miscellanous extras. The orb joints are for a special project, you know how I made a Cookie Monster A.I. truck? Well, thanks to MadMario and his Maniac Beer project I now want to make a sentient brewery A.I. based on...Elmo.

I've got another 4 of the sith trooper sets and have built a variety of alt builds with each set, there are way way more spare parts than I expected, I'll certainly be able to make something else as well.

Curious to see what you can come up with.

Originally went for groceries, saw the insanely long lines because of the 'social distancing' measures and decided to get something else instead.

The 3-in-1 dragon thing is because Drunken Madness at the Infernal Gates made me realize how many pose-able pieces it had. Also, horns and shiny parts!

The Friends sets are because I was still missing a few of the characters/cast and I want to expand my 'wellness resort trap' (It's delightfully devious) with a bit more options.

Batman and the Ghost Rider are for both story and army purposes. Now I have all three main Justice League members ready to fight for my sick amusement.

This one deserves its own post. I'm currently helping my dad fix up an old car (Rolls Royce Silver Shadow), today he surprised me out of nowhere with two boxes of LEGO he got for me while he was at the stores.

I guess I must be doing a good job at lacquering the woodwork of the car.

Nice fetch, seeing lots of space and fire stuff in there. Burninating the galaxy?
