    Those big sets would get you way more than selling bagged in pieces. You just have to make the time to piece them back together. Depending on your kids age, you could offer them half of the sale of ones they can complete. That can be lots of work once mixed.

    I’m buying more but am going to slowly build up a Halloween collection. That way I can put together a display every year. My sons got his. I think he’s finally understanding the importance of not mixing up the sets. Wish us luck he keeps it that way.

    It really is relaxing and fun. Maybe I should make a separate Lego thread for all to post pictures of builds they or their kids do. In the meantime… like guitars, pictures please. That Shelby looks cool.

    That store would likely tempt me too much. I’d likely wind up sleeping in the guest room some how.:eek:
     
  5. Out for delivery! I also have a Noctourne pedal on its way. Hard to tell which i am more excited over.

    Sweet! Post a pic once your finished.

    I just picked up a used Monster Fighters Haunted House. I plan to build up a great Halloween display over the coming years and add a lighting kit.

    Which Nocturne did you order?
     
  7. Jr Barnyard. It as well as the lego are sitting waiting for me to do something, except my family has other plans for my time. I always thought lego came first.

  8. And so it begins. It comes with a manual thats a quarter inch thick. Its going to rain here all afternoon, so will give it a start. The downside is that when i say i would like to buy a Princeton reverb, my wife will tell me i already have this.

    Sweet! Congrats on both. Sounds like perfect Lego weather too. :)

    I’m sure your ears will work just fine for setting the Jr Barnyard. Tavo did a post this week on two settings you can try. I tend to favor the L7 and Guitar. Although I run mine on Wooly at times with Guitar and the Blend around 6-7. Enjoy both Lego build and the JR B. :)

    How do the plastic strings go into the tuning keys… a Lego with a hole?
     
  15. They are attached to little round lego pieces. The strings lining up was tricky. Without a nut they tend to slide a bit.

    It's really cool that Lego makes kits to build specific things, because you get bespoke pieces that you couldn't otherwise buy. On the down side, it tends to stifle creativity because you sit down to build whatever the kit is for, exactly the way the designers intended. <old man voice> When I was a kid I (sometimes we) sat down with a pile of bricks/logs/pieces and built whatever I could imagine, until I ran out of parts. </old man voice> It stimulated all kinds of different pathways in my brain - designing, problem-solving, spatial skills, etc.
