Been away from the thread for a bit while on vacation, and lots to catch up on!

Went to the LEGO store in Orlando while out, and snagged a few sets, including the Saturn rocket (finally), the bonus book set (gonna modify it to be a Harry Potter book set once those minifigs come out lol), and managed to find a LEGO storefront set! (40305)

not only that, my dad gave me his older x-wing set 10240! he didn't have any shelf space for it (thx to his purchase, the Bugatti) so he figured I wouldn't mind taking it since I got the UCS MF lol

dudes, that Bugatti is SWEEEEEEET too. the packaging is super nice when you open it, top notch.

AND HOLY CRAP THE NEW HARRY POTTER MINIFIGS CAN'T WAIT TO GET A BOX OR TWO!!!

yeah voltron woohoo, ehh i'll pass prob, but damn it looks cool too.

heads up for fellow HP fans, Target is having an event in two weeks

Image

LEGO Harry Potter fans, it looks like there’s an event at Target that you may be interested in attending for some cool swag. On Saturday, July 21 from 11am-2pm, Target will be holding a free Harry Potter 20th Anniversary event and it looks like some of the giveaways, while supplies last, include a LEGO Harry Potter branded Hogwarts crest cinch bag and a poster featuring Harry, Hermione, and Ron. It also looks like there’s an opportunity to enter to win a brick-built Hedwig statue. If you’re heading to San Diego Comic Con 2018, you’ll notice that the Target event is held on the same day so you’ll have to figure out your priorities. I’ll probably have to find the giveaways on the secondary market as I’ll be at SDCC.

So now that TRU is gone, where does one go to get minifigs at retail? Is Target the best bet? I'm definitely going to want to track down some of the HP minifigs.

Yeah Target is usually the best place to go, other than a LEGO store. Sometimes they pop up at Walmart, but thats been iffy for me. And Walgreens too, but usually I find just a few there, and almost always they are a gen or two behind lol

For reals.

I did read up more on this, and they aren't technically the kid legs, nor are they the standard ones.

They hit in between the two, a middle height, or as some are calling them now, teen legs lol
