LEGO Finds - Calendar Week 43

One little piece this week.  Well, not completely true.  There was a LEGO DC Comics magazine #2 but it was creased and wrinkled and not worth picking up.  At least this thing is functional.  Now I just need to figure out how to use it.  Dark Purple?


Set Review - The Ghost TRU promo

Toys'Arrr'Us sure has been playing a prominent role in my acquisition program lately. This time it was simple. A LUG buddy picked up a copy of the micro Ghost promo for me. I had seen the ship on the blogosphere the week before and even though I don't care a Bantha's hair about Rebels, I am a bit of a microscale fan. So it was very cool of my friend and very exciting to receive a copy of the build.

Almost a copy.

I have to wonder if this was a well planned promo. I mean, think about it. It's October. It's BRICKtober. It's a ghost. Let it sink in a moment.

The build was nothing fancy, lots of straight stacking with one step asking you to put a plate's underside pegs into the hollow studs of another piece. But despite the simple build, the design is really accurate in aesthetic. I was... impressed. Kudos to the designer. The best part of the build is on the back where you stick a 1x2 plate with a single finger click hinge. You just KNOW there's going to be a micro build of the Phantom to dock up to. The question is, when?



Back that thing up!
So all hail to TLG for this great little design but sucks to your assmar to TRU. I couldn't actually build my ship all the way because they had forgotten a few pieces. All four white 1x1 plates were missing as was the crucial docking apparatus. Apparently TRU is the Empire and they are trying to undermine the Rebels' mission.  More sadly, I didn't have a black one to steal from anywhere.  A click hinge, a click hinge, my cause for a click hinge!





Missed the event or don't have as good of friends as me? Instructions below.

LEGO Finds - Calendar Week 42

Only one item this week.  And it's not even made by LEGO!  Official Iris Brand Ninjago storage case.  No baseplate in it anymore.  Of course, there are only baseplates in half of them at the store anyway.  This will be perfect for MY baseplates and all my large bulk of overflow parts.
