  1. These came with the order I just received. I have to post each picture separately. The first two are front and back of an approx 8.5" x 11" card
  2. Here is a post about peeron from May 2011. That was about the last time there were any major updates listed at peeron. http://www.bricksetforum.com/discussion/782/importing-set-list-from-peeron I remember someone explaining what happened to peeron in the BrickLink forum sometime ago, but those posts disappear after 6 months and my memory of what's actually in them usually disappears 6 days after I read them. I use the Search keywords alot.
  3. I'm exhaused just reading it all. And really really sorry you didn't get to the beach. I'm going to read all the new posts before I get back to you about the 80s-90s parts.
  4. When I first joined rebrickable, I asked Nathan the same question. Fortunately, he's such a clever boy, he can work with just about any listing method you throw at him. I did my set inventory at rebrickable through my peeron account file. However, I don't know if peeron is still accepting members. Many of "you boys" are about the same age as my son. All grown up men now, and some with children of your own. ndbacon: Could you let us know your country/location? It's always fun to see the global population of rebrickable. I'm always hoping to run into someone who would remember the LEGO Lady from a school where I had a display. Our collection has been shared with children from many countries, including Russian Germans who returned to Germany after the break-up of the USSR. Sorry for going off topic above. Just elderly lady in rambling reminiscing mode. If I put this as an actual link, it shows the video here and while I know it would be ok with Nathan, I don't know it that's ok under youtube rules. Copy, paste, enjoy the music and pictures. www.youtube.com/watch?v=voQWlL-jj5Q&feature=kp
  5. The category is: Modular Buildings I'll take Modular Buildings for $1000 Alex.(In my day it was Art Fleming) The Jeopardy answer is: MiniFigs x 55 What Modular Building has 55 minifigs? I don't know, but whichever one it is, I'll take 100 please.
  6. Nathan, can you explain about private MOCs? I was trying to use that feature last night to accomplish what CADScott seems to be asking. Sugar Pretty Please!
  7. Another source for identifying older bricks is peeron.com. Choosing the "see pictures" option is a great help for printed bricks. Once you've worked out which set you're dealing with, you can usually find a scan of the instruction book as well. The only drawback is that it hasn't been updated for several years, so you won't find newer things. I've been collecting LEGO sets for almost 30 years, but I managed to avoid the Technic stuff most of the time. Thanks to Nathan(rebrickable), BrickLink, and peeron, I just inventoried 1000+ Technic parts my son left behind when he graduated from college. It wasn't toooo painful. And maybe Nathan will give me a few extra karma points for boosting his beloved Technic stats...hint hint.
  8. This gives you lots of karma points to make up for the handicapped monkey. Just hope you weren't in the middle of a Megabloks burning when you did the printed bricks.
  9. The DK Friends listing in MySets isn't showing the picture.
  10. When I went to add the Brickmaster Friends to My Sets last night, I typed in Brickmaster and it wasn't in the list. Just now when I typed Brickmaster, a whole bunch more showed up that weren't there last night. So thanks if you fixed it, and "What the heck happened?' if you didn't do anything to it.
  11. Is there a setting to change the default -sorted by year- to -sorted by set number-?
  12. If one of y'all can find a picture for the DK Friends Brickmaster book/set, I have 2 copies and can use the LEGO element numbers for an inventory. This one is especially dear to me because on the back under the UPC code it says...Always Learning PEARSON which is the company my husband works for.
  13. So I guess the monkey only has arms and legs-no hands or feet?
  14. I'm waiting impatiently to see that torso with arms and legs!
  15. I know it's free, but I also know myself and I would spend more time on the computer trying to make my LDD modulars "perfect" and less time actually building them with real LEGO bricks. I wasn't upset about the comments about my pictures. I warned y'all from the very beginning they would be horrible. It isn't all the device either. Part of it is my unsteady hands. But that was very chivalrous of you to come to my defense.
  16. yes I have several parts in the wrong place, but giving skirrid plenty of time to fix them before sending a list.
  17. I had put off inventorying our 30 year collection for way too long. rebrickable is such a cool place. I first bugged Nathan about what improvements it needed about a year ago. Since then he has made tremendous progress. A little patience and it will soon be transformed from "cool" to Totally Awesome! ps-Nathan, thanks for getting me going!
  18. Follow up: I just got through adding about 1000 technic parts that my son had sorted into 5 trays. The Hockey Puck Feeder has fallen to 8th place. 1st place is now 8205-1 Bungee Blaster! Now where did he put those bungees!!!
  19. Saturday night we went out to dinner with family and stopped at a Target store first to buy the set. It was on sale for 25% off, so we bought 2 of them. Paul put his together on Sunday just the way it is on the box. I'm working on an alternate build, but since I don't have LDD and y'all pooh-poohed my pictures, I won't be submitting it for the contest. I'll just post a fuzzy logic picture of it. If nobody else has built your "Transformer" yet, once I get the picture taken, I'll take mine apart and try to build yours. If I run into any problems I'll send you an email.
  20. Sorry, I don't know where my digital camera is and even if I did find it, I'd need the book to learn how to use it again. I am using an ancient flip-phone with not so good eyesight and arthritis in my hands. The train layout pictures were taken by my son which explains why they're much better. I didn't know we were going to do any others besides the ones that have actual building instructions. It would change the subset structuring. For example the picture at the top of pages 46-47 would be a subset of 250-1. Then the smaller structures and models would be subsets of that subset. Or...You would need to create an inventory for the ideabook main picture that included everything needed to build the entire scene on those pages. I vote to just do the models that have the official instructions as subsets. Any others from the pictures could be MOCs.
  21. http://bricksafe.com/files/thea/250-1%20pictures/250-1-s26-1c.jpg Could you check out the picture and see if it will work for this project? If it's not clear enough, I can try again. Before I submit the inventory for this I wanted to make a suggestion. The way biodreamer's numbering the sets is hard to work with. I'm working on a couple different subsets at the same time and I keep having to recount to see what set I'm working on. Can we make the standard subset numbering in the catalog to be the page the model build starts on? If there are 2 models that start on that page, the first is a and the second b and so on. That would make this 250-1-p46a-1.
  22. In the Winter Village Market 10235-1 available now in the LEGO store. I almost bought that set yesterday, but bought last year's winter village cottage set instead.
  23. I think all the modular minifigs have 3626 with a standard face. I have customized mine and displayed all the mods together so I can't be 100% sure of that. The difference is in the stud itself. It changed from stud hollow to stud recessed I think in 2012. I haven't built my Town Hall or Palace Cinema yet to verify that. Did you notice he said dark blue roof and "bow" pieces? That means TLG is really going after the dark blue arch's crazy prices. But they have just created a new "in demand" piece with the white croissants. I just bought a bunch of olive parts to combine with reddish brown for an MOC modular based on the Market Street design. I built a bank with a staircase on the outside leading to an apartment and studio loft a few years ago. I like this LEGO version better.
  24. Thanks for posting that! I have pretty much given up reading BL Forum so I'm relying on rebrickable for keeping me current on things like this. I will post this in return in case you haven't seen it. www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_VroKcBFqE LEGO Designer video about the new Parisian Cafe modular.
  25. ARRRGHHH! Why did you have to pick THIS SuperHeroes set? I just bought an Ironman and 2 Spiderman sets to include in my 30 years project, not because "I" like the SuperHeroes theme, but because kids do. I picked those sets because they each have a structure in them with pieces I will find useful, but they are larger and wouldn't have qualified for your contest. A lady's point of view: I finished with the "dark red" part of my life 4 years ago. I don't like building with dark red pieces. Possible Solution: Don't use the dark red pieces from this set in my build. Most of the time, Alternate Builds don't use ALL the pieces included anyway. Now for the positive stuff. The simple fact that you have created this site overrides anything negative I might expressPeriod!!!( and yes pun intended) "Nuff said!!
