Any of you US chaps got a spare Hoth Han polybag from the Lego store? They seem to be US only. :neutral:

Guess I'm in the modular game now; I just won the Detective's Agency and Pet Shop over at a Lego raffle subreddit! First modulars for me. This is going to cost me in the long run, isn't it? :D

Are the Bricktober 2014 mini-buildings the same size as the 10230 Mini Modulars?

Ah, having checked further it seems you need a voucher from the Lego calendar and then it's free with any purchase. Trickier than I thought.

The upside being I found out it was already released two years ago on May 4th so there are some floating around on ebay. Prices aren't insane so it might make more sense for me to grab one there.

Thanks though. :pint:

Still my favorite Architecture series build. Could be eclipsed by the Robie House in the mail though.

Robie house is awesome, but TONS of 1x1 gray tiles. I love the farnsworth house for the furniture inside, the imperial hotel for the windows especially, and the eiffel tower just because of how its built, but they all are pretty sweet.

Almost got the Lincoln Memorial this weekend at TRU (and the new birds ideas set), but figured I would wait since the birthday is in a few weeks and the wife was giving me a look lol, and if I get them, gotta do it at a LEGO store for the VIP points!

great work on all the minifigs, you guys.

i didn't want to ruin it while the contest was still ongoing, but if I had a milhouse, i would combine his head on deadpool's body to form milpool.
