Just finished the Mustang, looks fantastic, possible my favourite build to date, really well put together.
I would sort away and then make a bulk order at bricklink to complete all the sets.I intend to try to sell it off as sets and donate the rest. I'm prioritizing putting together the biggest most valuable sets, unfortunately I'm already missing parts and wondering if I should just advertise and sell as incomplete or try to buy the individual parts I need to make a full set?
Alright thanksI would sort away and then make a bulk order at bricklink to complete all the sets.
Much better than having to explain what is missing to potential buyers.
Be aware that some colours have changed since back then, primarily the grey's might be very different, so make sure you order the correct part/colour.
Cleaning - nothing more than soapy water and agitation. I've bulk-cleaned lego by putting it in a tightly-sealing tupperware or storage box and giving it a good shake with warm soapy water.

Faded/yellowed parts can be "refreshed" by putting them in Hydrogen Peroxide (ie. the stuff used for hair bleaching) in sunlight for a day. This is only a temporary measure though. The yellowing will return after a year or two, potentially worse than before.
Hey. I'm thinking of picking them both up. Can you by any chance post some pics of the Bounty docked in the harbour?Bought the Ninjago City Docks yesterday, and now after 9-ish hours of building it is complete, goes exceedingly well with the Destiny's bounty on my shelf.
I did take quite a bit longer than I suspected, but it was good fun.
Not at the moment, but I can probably find some relatively quickly, if you'd like.
I discovered the magic of submodels shortly after posting last night. Lumped most of the tiles together with the baseplate before I carried on playing with the walls. Seems really nice.
You can put them in washing machine (inside pillow case) and wash them that way.Alright thanks
I have been attempting to catalogue the pieces I've been missing so far (and I may attempt to do a second look at mom's)
And also sad but many of the earlier pieces from the early 90s are discolored, especially the white and blue ones, and also teeth marks from biting the parts to separate them
Well, I was only gonna include the best parts in the most valuable sets anyway, and if I can't find a good enough part I suppose I can order those too
Fortunately my later parts from sets like star wars are pretty fuckin pristine
One more thing does anyone have any cleaning/sanitizing tips, that's another thing I really need to do
Ah well then lol
This is my plan. I bought Red5 and R2 but got good deals on both so dind't pay too much. I'm not paying out for old sets if they are just going to re issue/redo them for substantially less.Any word on what the new Star Wars UCS sets might be? I'm hoping for an A-wing and a TIE Advanced. I think I can stop at that point, having everything from the 2008ish Death Star to now. Seems like they are in re-issue mode at this point so its probably only a matter of time till I finish off the OT stuff I'm interested in.
I’ve got a couple bins of used pieces myself. I was thinking of getting a lingerie washing bag and throwing it in the top rack of a dishwasher. I haven’t gotten around to it, but seems better than a washer. Since you have yours sorted, you could probably get a basic mesh bag for the larger pieces. Check the dollar store for them.
Target has the Hall of Armor set for $47.99 (20% off) online and in-store if you're willing to bite at that price. Not sure how long the sale lasts though. The War Machine Buster is also 20% off ($27.99) if you were interested in that too.It has been awhile since I pick up any LEGO set but the Hall of Armor caught my eye the other day as I walked pass LEGO store. That said, may be because I haven't got a set recently, I find the price to be really high. $59.99 for 6 minifigs and small size display. Also what with all the miniaturized Star Wars vehicles .... (not the Chibi one, I knew about those).
i've been going slow on the storefront because i am not sure what I want to do exactly around the window.
oooh. do you have a pic of your modular table where we can see the whole layout? i have my small number of built modulars just in a line but layouts with depth are definitely cooler.
Yeah strange. I'm sure there are lots of people like me that are casually interested but not going to bother with Discord. I suppose that's fine if a smaller community is preferred though.
Studio computes the price for you. No need for spreadsheets :)I do still generally prefer forums, so i'm gonna keep posting here whenever i have anything worth sharing.
haven't advanced on my moc since the last time I posted a photo, tho.
stay tuned for when i put all the pieces in a spreadsheet and realize how much the bricklinking will cost. maybe i'll record a video of myself crying.
Yep, you can upload straight to your wishlist,. You have to sign in to your bricklink account first though
Wow. I thought the old lego-era enablers- oops I mean regulars- were the most devious wallet hazards but this is gonna hit hard one day. An automated bad influence
I have a Tantive IV set, but not sure if it is this one or not (IIRC the old UCS was 1750 and the "regular" TIV was 1100 or so?). Guess I can check the brick count but cant be much of a difference either way. Probably gonna pass on this one.
prevalence of adblock making ad services more desperate?
Yeah Assembly was a super fun build, with interesting interiors. Would love them to do a similar sized Museum/Library combination. Need to buy some kind of shelving solution to house more sets now however.
Oh I think if i were building my own library or museum each one could easily be assembly sq size by itself, haha. I've been trying to daydream how to squeeze my local library main branch into 32x32 and it's a tight fit.
