No, keep the weekend before for London drinks meet up. Not sure I can make 29th as I might be having my usual week before my birthday birthday bash in Reading joint with a mate whose birthday it really is that weekend. If anything changes (and we're all still friends for this weekend!) then Lego would be cool!

We only need one kid. Steff, pick your favourite!

I'm away with work on the Sunday, so will probably be busy on the Saturday doing Sunday's house work anyway.

Tescos have the Simpsons minifigures half price (£1.25) so I couldn't resist, bought 11 and tried to go by the bump codes managing two doubles so I have Bart, Lisa, Marge, Homer, Grandpa, Apu, Wiggum, Mr Burns and Ned Flanders. I really want Maggie to finish the collection, I'm not sure whether to go buy a few more reduced or just buy her on ebay.

That's still pretty good going. Which dupes have you got?

I have doubles of Bart and Lisa, today I managed to get Ralph, Milhouse and Itchy. I made a rather big error though as I agreed to trade Apu for Maggie, I emptied the packet to make sure it was all there, sealed it up, posted it, came home and found Apu's cup :( I'll need to post that on its own to the person, smallest package ever?

Despite my awesomeness at feeling stuff up 8-) :lol: I've taken John's lead and just head to eBay now to buy the complete sets.

Does take some of the fun away, but saves a lot of pain looking for that one elusive figure... never managed to find the Grandma one, in the end I bought it off eBay to satisfy the completionist in me!

I liked Robbo's halloween collection last year, so I've switched my work ones to a sort of halloween theme:

There's a creepy girl in the Series 12 minifigs that I keep meaning to bring in.
Oh and if you're wondering, there's always someone in a bunny costume at halloween, albeit normally of the playboy variety!

Do you get any comments with regards to your Lego display at work? Either the "dork!" kind or of the "they're cool!" ilk.

I dunno... I shall ask...

Mostly confusion that so many Lego figures exist, it seems!

So tempted to get the AT-AT whilst it's £75 on Amazon.... but will it go cheaper?!

Any good deals in particular? I had a quick look on Amazon but the Technics prices looked around normal.

The Star Wars and Marvel sets are the ones I look at.

Particularly, the GotG sets were all discounted, the X-men one, all the 2014 SW sets, the AT-AT was down to £72 from £110.

I don't class Technics as real Lego, it's kinda like Duplo in that regard ;) It's for people that grew up :D

I have a friend's birthday on Sunday, he loves lego (has deathstar, *heavy breathing*).

Anything cheap I can get him from a shop?

Ta! Matt.

How cheap are we talking? There are cute little Star Wars sets for £9 such as a mini Star Destroyer, Millennium Falcon etc. with a minifigure.

Tappy, I strongly disagree with you on Technics...it's awesome, the design of it is generally incredibly clever. I didn't realise there was Lego Guardians of the Galaxy, the Milano rescue set looks pretty good.
