Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

I did my first customy thing recently, combining the somewhat recent Lex Luthor mech with some parts from a Spider-Man/Mysterio set that just came out, and I'm very happy with the result. Now, I'm sourcing parts to turn a War Machine Buster set into Nimrod. This is my first time even attempting some...

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

Received a couple of the things that I got on the eBay, specifically a Doc Ock minifigure (as I'm working on getting the Sinister Six) and the blindpacked Mr. Miracle. Have a couple sets arriving tomorrow, as well.

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

Picked up the Black Widow's Helicopter Chase set from the forthcoming movie as a) the only Black Widow minifig I had was the Infinity War one with blonde hair, and b) it has Taskmaster. Not a bad little set, and the helicopter isn't half bad. My biggest complaint is that Taskmaster doesn't have a pr...

Re: So I'm pretty much out of the fandom at this point

Fair enough. I hadn't had occasion to use TFU for a few years until recently, when I was trying to find specific information about release dates, and I couldn't find anything on toys for several years. It looks like, while the site updated for a while afterword, they hadn't added any new merchandise...

and there are a few specialist sites like TFU for toy ID
Is TFU still going? I know the site still technically exists, but there's nothing post 2016, I think?

Exactly. When I'm following the instructions, I'm able to shut off my anger and anxiety and just go through the motions of putting it together.

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

It's not that it's intimidating, and I certainly wouldn't expect to be putting together transforming Dinobots out of the gate, or anything. It's just that my interest in LEGO is aesthetic and therapeutic; I enter a kind of zen state when I'm following the instructions that allows me to calm down, an...

That is pretty cool. I wish I had the inclination toward doing things like that, but I primarily do it to de-stress.

Re: General LEGO discussion (inc. collectible minifigs)

My local store doesn't do this. They just put them out on a table, and every time a new wave of blind-packed figures comes in, the store is swarmed by people feeling up packages. Super great if you're prone to migraines and wander in on the wrong day.

Re: What TV shows are you watching thread.

And really, that sort of thing is old hat in both comics and television, so that alone isn't really enough to recommend the series. In the comics, the most interesting bit was Huey's conflict, something that I'm not entirely sure the show is really getting right as yet. Admittedly, it's thrown a few...
