    I got mine off eBay, I made an offer on an auction that didn't sell, and I contacted the buyer afterwards and negotiated a price that was about 1/2 of what it was advertised for :)

    I may have to try that. I have found one overseas and have contacted the seller on eBay to ask about postage costs. I would much prefer to buy one in Australia.

    Another new set for me :)

    Back in 1994 I was lucky enough to get set 8858 Rebel Wrecker (http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=8858-1) as a Christmas present, from this point on it was my favourite set. For the next 16 years I kept this set assembled however when I hit my teenage years it was in storage. Back in 2010 when I had my big sell off I sold this set.

    Since I got back in to LEGO a couple of years ago it was a set I kept an eye out for, on the weekend a friend of mine brought over another set I had purchased off him, while we were chatting he said he had this set and would sell it to me for $75. He built it up for me and I got it off him today. Below are some photos of the set I got today and also a photo from Christmas 1994 when I built my original one.

    Just a heads up for Brisbaners that BrisBricks are having their fan expo this long weekend.

    Come and see Brent Waller's awesome Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary MOC that's made it to official review via Cuusoo!

    They stagger the releases throughout the year. You may find the first batch of 2014 sets appearing in December-ish.
    Next batch will probably be around March, then June/July, Aug/Sept then again in December.
    They generally try to keep future releases quiet until a month or so before release.

    I am going, will be at the 9am session Saturday :) I will so take pics!
    There are usually previews or whatever leaked 5-6 months before they are actually available in shops :)

    Ah okay cool. I just started buying some City stuff. I kinda wish there was more buildings than vehicles though.

    Have a look at the Creator stuff if you're after buildings.

    The annual AMRA (Australian Model Railway Association) show is on again this long weekend at Whitlam Leisure Centre, Liverpool. SYDLUG have a big Lego train layout there. I haven't seen it yet, but previous layouts have been awesome so I am sure this one will be worht seeing if you're a train fan.

    I have 2 boxes of Lego, a lot handed down to me, and now my kids play with it and love it.

    I'm sure I'm a tech today because of Lego, the ability to build things from instructions, or use imagination, dismantle them, custom them to make the look better etc.

    Definitely a skill building toy
