daaaaaaamn i am gonna have to look into making that...its just too good to not try. I would want it facing the other direction i think, but i can modify that i guess. bummer the landing gear has to be removed though... but still, thx for the link!
I checked it out quickly and it suggested a video of somebody's display of a bunch of UCSs and it looked like he (I'm assuming) made one in black and had it so the landing gear is still attached. I just looked at it quickly but I'll see if I can find it again later. Love the idea of the inclined display tho.

I think I know which video you're talking about. I believe that's actually a metal stand he made that's covered in Lego bricks

The wife managed to find a few more boxes for the smalls we have in the mix, figured I would post them here too if anyone is curious what all is out there from years past:

Nice! I love placing LEGO all down our mantle, but it usually gets super crowded and veto'd by the wife if I go too far lol so the past couple of years I've just stuck with a single piece on it. This guy:

My son turns 5 next week, he loves legos. He is atticted to 'lego ninjago' (tv show) and I have ordered a few sets for his bday and Christmas. He also does some of the smaller 'city' sets. Are there any other good sets for a boy his age that can keep him entertained?

Has the Black Friday in store ad been shown?

Or is it only the crap online?

That´s like asking if there are any screenprints out there that might be nice to have.

My kids love Nexo Knights, many sets on discount now, even the older ones are not very expensive on secondary market.
And you've seen the Jungle theme? He's gonna love that, I also think the Volcano sets are quite nice.

Have they really not restocked the Falcon in a month? I signed up for the VIP notification and haven't seen word one. :roll:
