Not sure if anyone else in here loves airplanes (especially WWII ones) like I do (thx dad for all the plastic model building as a kid lol), but I saw this and really wish it was a legit set:

The boys got a nice haul. It helps that I'm in charge of finding gifts on behalf of most of my family. They're mostly older folks that don't navigate the amazon computer store very well. So they each got one of the force awakens x wings and the 3-1 Dino set. Big guy got indonimius breakout, and little guy got a couple of the new rogue 1 sets. I got the ucs tie fighter Santa picked up during a random amazon lightning sale over the summer. Wife and baby girl got frozen sets. It's been a very bricky several days!

Ran across a few at a Target in Austin, but didn't have time to feel them up. We got a Gordon and Calculator?

I got these two sealed and unopened and won't use them. Is $150 shipped fair for the pair?

Thanks Stark! Also, bought some Phillips copper led lights from Xmas discount section at target. 70% off now. Either way pretty cheap. I got the battery operated packs and put them into the Parisian Cafe for interior lighting. Looks great and highly recommended. Easy to manipulate and the wiring makes it easy to keep its former. Super low profile and I was able to attach the levels without big cracks. I'll post a pic at some point but it seems to get a great lighting option for modulars. Can't wait to rig the haunted house. Might go back and see if they have green. Dammit. Wish I thought of that earlier...

Yup. Those. They also had them in silver instead of copper. This was a really quick job I did with a few spare minutes. I literally taped the wiring to the ceilings just to see how the illumination would look. The wires held in place pretty well on their own if manipulated properly. I was really pleased with how it looked and will post once I get to rigging it for realz.

I'm in Canada and it costs more to ship everywhere, so get over it.
