Which one? this one or this one? Because IDK how you can drunkenly spend $500 let alone $2000.

EDIT: to clarify, OP ought two sets, so the first one I posted is $250 and the second one is $1,000. I was marveling at how a person is able to accidentally buy two of either option, even drunkenly.

u/jda404 · 47 pointsr/buildapc

Lol some really are insane and as much if not more than some budget PC's, the Millenium Falcon goes for 800 bucks!

u/derper-man · 46 pointsr/robotics

I've spend almost 4 years teaching kids 7-13 robotics, and I can say that at that age you are almost guaranteed to have a bad time with such an open ended challenge. Children that age are simply not capable of realizing how many small problems contribute to the overall complexity of a problem. In order to effectively teach kids problem solving or robotics, it is essential to artificially reduce the complexity of the little problems. For example on our outside robot we have the following very non-trivial problems that are not strictly related to the central problem of, find interesting stuff then investigate:

  1. dirt getting in our robot and clogging it. building stuff that works well outdoors is hard.
  2. sensing different types of soil or surface. this is an enormously complex and expensive thing to do
  3. digging, moving dirt with a little robot is very hard. the complexity of that is crazy.
  4. cost, as a robotics engineering student in college, It would probably cost more than 1000 dollars to have a really good robot to do what you want.
  5. time, kids get bored fast. this kind of problem would likely take an engineer a couple days at least. kids don't focus for that long.

    if you wanted to come up with a different challenge that would be easier to succeed and teach with, I would go with something like the following: Cut out a bunch of pieces of construction paper, maybe 1.5 inch diameter circles. mostly brown or grey or black but a few red ones. Stick all these pieces of paper on a table in a random mess, you can even cut up the paper to look like leaves or something, and the red ones to look like ladybugs, whatever works to make the mock up yard feel more real. The idea is to build an environment that is similar to outside, but has much less "hidden" complexity to overcome. Now build a robot that drives around and has a little arm with some tape on it that it can push down on the table to pick up paper with, this way our robot doesn't have to actually dig or grasp objects, which eliminates some of the difficulty of the challenge. This robot could use a simple color sensor, which comes with every Lego NXT kit now to sense the leaf color. This eliminates most of the complexity of our sensor. By using legos we have an easier platform to work with. its not longer difficult for the kid to focus for long periods of time because it can come together faster, and its more toy like. we also have a relatively low cost option, a 400$ lego kit is an amazing deal considering it can be re-configured.

    here are some links to robotics kits that you might like. I highly recommend lego for a kid this age, but there are some other options if you'd prefer a toy you can learn something from as well.

    polulu 3pi robot, with the addition of a servo you could build a pretty sweet robot for the task i described above:

    Vex robotics. geared for much more complex robots, this would be my least favorite option for someone who is only 7.

Why in the world do men put up with this? Even when I was married, I never asked my wife's permission or had to accrue "brownie points" to get anything I wanted when I wanted. Now, granted, I'm rather a minimalist when it comes to stuff, so it was never a point of friction but I never even vaguely thought I had to get her approval for any purchases I did make.

That being said, it seems rather absurd to me for a grown man to spend $800 on a plastic child's toy, but to each their own.

u/hab136 · 28 pointsr/firstworldproblems

You need a brick separator. Comes with a lot of kits these days.

u/119work · 24 pointsr/technology

Too Late And I'm sure someone has made a mod that puts little cylinders on top of every block in minecraft... and if not that'd be the first thing i'd try.

EDIT: Found it! also what the fuck, downvoted? I'm relaying the exact information Craysh was looking for. Not only did Lego make minecraft sets, but there are unofficial texture packs already out there that make minecraft look Lego-ey.

u/StarGone · 24 pointsr/videos

You are not their target audience with this. I know parents who immediately see the value in teaching their young kids how to follow instructions to build something (LEGO) and then there is the fact that the game also teaches basic coding logic (Scratch Studio) while also combining the coding within the projects (LEGO Mindstorms)

While Scratch Studio is basically very cheap, LEGO sets and Mindstorms can range in the hundreds of dollars versus Nintendo Labo which is $80.

Non-theme LEGO is expensive.

u/NoMan999 · 19 pointsr/autism

You know how with Lego some kids carefully follow the instructions in the booklet and others just use their imaginations and build random stuff?

Well, some grew up as adults who can easily build Ikea furniture, but that's not the point. The point is that there isn't one specific way to play with toys. Some will use dolls as action figures while others will sit Batman, a T-rex and a car around for a cup of tea.

As for your brother, he'll grow up to become the target demographic for this and than (NB : don't buy from the second link, it was originally sold for "only" $300 or so.)

I don't have parenting advice as I'm not a parent and not an example to follow as a child, but maybe try to work on his strengths rather than his weaknesses (ie. teach him how to read and write rather than try to force him to speak.) Read him books while showing the text and images maybe?

u/Sm314 · 15 pointsr/funny

You think that's cool?

Try this

1.2m long super star destroyer.

Or you could get the larger Death Star.

u/Brunninator · 14 pointsr/crappyoffbrands

I'm a huge fan of Lego but Lepin is actually great for sets that Lego has discontinued. For instance, the Lego Super Star Destroyer was discontinued but you can still find sets from private sellers for over $1000. Lepin has a near perfect knockoff for a hundred bucks. Spend a little time reprinting the STAR WNRS stickers and nobody knows the difference, with a 90% discount. I always buy from Lego when I can, but for something like this I don't mind buying the knockoff.

u/xenokilla · 14 pointsr/Skookum
u/behemuthm · 12 pointsr/lego

Jesus Christ that's like $1000 in Lego. Did you buy those yourself or were they presents from others? If from others you should consider yourself VERY lucky.

I received the VW Campervan 10220 from my wife and am gingerly putting it together and really enjoying taking my time with it. What do you do with your completed sets? Do you take them apart and put them back in their box or do you keep them out on display? I live in a small place so I can only have one set out at a time. How quickly do you build your kits? I bought a pieced-together 10179 from bricklink and took it apart and resold it as soon as I finished it. Took me over two months to put together (at night after I came home from work) and I loved every minute of it. But I literally had no place for it so I had to sell it.

u/TheShadowBlade92 · 12 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Well I went on Amazon to go find a bunch of legos to buy, and I saw this, this, and this.

  1. I never knew legos went for that much...

  2. I have all three of those from when I was little, one of which I never even opened cause I lost interest. How much did my parents spend on legos?
u/Dr_Zol_Epstein_III · 12 pointsr/pics --- glass case, smoke & flames "not included"

u/memes_420 · 10 pointsr/robotics

I really liked Lego Mindstorms when I was a kid. It's cool because they are easy to assemble because it's just legos and the coding language was pretty simple. It's a graphical block-diagram language that's nice for kids.

u/oldsillybear · 8 pointsr/business

We ordered a 400 piece set from Amazon (several, actually). My wife used them for a lab she was teaching at the local college - something about molecules.

Note: 400 pieces isn't as much as I remembered. I must have had thousands when I was a kid.

So, for shits and giggles let's do this thing.

>the weight of the tool 0.64 oz on Amazon for the shipping weight,1 and it's value would come from how much .64 oz gold is worth.

>.64oz is about 18 grams, and 18 grams of gold would be worth, at 24 karat 18 karat gold, about $5302

u/AllGoldGold · 7 pointsr/evilbuildings

This 2,169 sq. ft. house made of lego took 10,079,829 pieces. Which comes to 4,647 pieces per square foot.

Per Wikipedia the Chang-Gu World Trade Center is 896,700 sq. ft..

So that would require 4,166,964,900 lego, not accounting for any structural differences between building a skyscraper and a 2 story house.

You can get 790 pieces of lego on [amazon](LEGO Classic Large Creative Brick Box 10698 for 46.99.

So roughly $247,855,291 in materials alone to build a building that size out of lego. I wouldn't call that being cheap.

(Please feel free to check my math, I have a degree in history math is not my forte.)

u/flee_market · 7 pointsr/MGTOW

I was thinking maybe one of these:

Pretty cool little set. Need to figure out how to mount it on my wall.

u/phat1forever · 6 pointsr/weightlifting

Well. My rest days are Tues/Thurs/Sat. Tuesdays I go watch a movie if one I want to see came out the prior weekend because its like 60% off at a theater nearby on Tuesdays.

Thursdays I usually get home and after sitting around for a while will sit down and try and study for some certifications I want to get for work. Then play guitar/video games for a while.

Saturday I hang out with friends and play video games or other random stuff.

I bought this Lego Death Star a few years ago and spent about 6 months worth of Saturdays for a few hours each Saturday putting it together. It was a blast.

Often I have family stuff to deal with which takes up much of my time, or I should be spending time studying instead of likely sitting around on Reddit or some other stupid crap.

TL;DR - find some hobbies you enjoy that are not the gym.

Edit* - I found some old photos of me working on it. None of it actually finished though. building the exterior and probably looking for a grey piece.

u/MonkeyTheMonk · 6 pointsr/Parenting

I actually do know about building robots, having professionally worked as a programmer and participated in many FIRST robotics competitions.

I don't know anything about Big Hero 6, but looking it up, your son's plan isn't a viable place to start. Lego mindstorms is probably the easiest way for a beginner to get into robotics, and I think it would be a good activity for you and your son. Look at a kit like this one.

You can see the basics of what it is in this youtube video.

There are videos of a bunch of other videos on youtube showing creations with it, if you look around.

Slightly more advanced would be getting into something like arduino programming, but that is a bit much for a five year old. Personally I think that lego is the way to go here.

If his interest holds and he wants to go a little further, FIRST even has a jr lego league for kids ages 6-9. I've only helped with mentoring high school teams for FRC, but I am sure it is still probably a lot of fun. You might see if there is a team nearby.

u/ShinyEggWhite · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You can still buy "classic" boxes of Lego that have no model associated with them and are just a bunch of random bricks in different colors. Example.

u/rageofsamus · 5 pointsr/MGTOW

Naw homie! This thing $800 for some Legos.

u/derpleberryfinn · 5 pointsr/WatchPeopleDieInside

okay, so, this is not correct.
lego's pricing has been very consistent throughout its existence - you're not paying for design or license, you're paying for the bricks and you always have been.

the average per-brick cost of lego is about $0.09 (american).
(some are a bit more, some are a bit less, depending on how much plastic goes into the piece.)

take a look for yourself.
regardless of the license, the costs of the sets are consistent with the number of bricks you're getting. $25 sets, usually around 200-300 pieces. $60 sets, six or seven hundred bricks.

even when it's a ridiculously expensive set - like this $800 millenium falcon - you can see for yourself, the set has over 7,500 pieces.
or this one, a $200 'slave one' (boba fett's ship) with about 2000 pieces.
$30 space shuttle, 300 piece set.

very very consistent pricing.

based on his videos, this man had hundreds of thousands of individual bricks.

possibly millions.

based only off what we see, he could have lost tens of thousands of dollars worth of plastic bricks and possibly more.

now obviously, the bricks don't cost as much to produce as they're sold for, but they don't cost nothing.
materials and manufacturing time are not free - and considering the sheer volume of pieces, shipping alone would be wildly expensive.

now, it's also true that lego is the most valuable toy brand on the planet but they did not become so profitable by giving shit away. replacing even a tenth of this guy's collection isn't going to cost them nothing.

u/jertyui · 4 pointsr/movies

That's the first death star. It's not all that expensive, nor big. But the second death star set is very expensive (mostly because it's limited) and very big.

Well, it's not that you're plainly wrong. LEGO Ultimate Building Set - 405 Pieces.

It's that childless people too old to play with legos seem to have fabricated this weird myth that you can't get a bucket of legos.

It's like old people whining about how "back in my day we used to build our toys from scratch, and walk uphill both ways to school, in the snow! In 100 degree weather! And legos didn't come in kits. We were special!" Except it's 18-30 year olds posting on an internet forum about.

u/morelandjo · 3 pointsr/Flipping

Here is an extreme example:

This set retired this past June, with a retail price of $399. Six months later the price has almost doubled on Amazon(sales rank 22,000 so these things are selling at that price), with sold listings on ebay between $5-700.

The popular brands are usually a safe investment if you can wait months for a return. Star Wars, Spongebob, Marvel, DC, Harry Potter, etc. Even better if it's a popular part of those brands(Hogwarts castle, Death Star).

Lego even keeps a list of items they plan on retiring soon here:

u/I-HATE-REDDITORS · 3 pointsr/StarWars

Forget about the LEGO website.

There are so many great legos now. I was in Walmart the other day and I saw there is a Batman set, with Nightwing and Man-bat for about 20$. And its a helicopter

u/19Styx6 · 3 pointsr/lego

The Joker Steam Roller does come with the Joker. However, the build of the actual steamroller was a little dull. Batman's plane is a good build in that set.

The Batboat Harbor Pursuit is a decent set, but way too overpriced on Amazon. Buy it on Lego's own site if you are going that route.

Gorilla Grodd goes Bananas could be a good choice if he likes mech suits.

Green Lantern vs. Sinestro is a nice little set if he has any interest in the Green Lantern. Batman's space suit in this set will be far different than any one he would already have.

I have not built Black Manta Deep Sea Strike yet, so I cannot comment on it.

Darkseid Invasion is just out of your price range, doesn't include Batman, but does have many other Justice League members. The Amazon price is also a good deal.

Man-Bat Attack is a nice little set if you can still get it for around the $20 MSRP.

The Penguin Face Off would make a good stocking stuffer.

That's just about everything that hasn't been retired and has the price marked up due to limited availability.

So while looking up the weight to check the cost of shipping I found it on Amazon for $177, which works out around the same price they sold it here for... Can't believe it was only $119 originally!
But yeah, no rush really. If they can have overstock here then they can catch up on restocking somewhere else faster too.

Oh, thank you! I do, that would be sweet! If you're sure :)

Baseplates is correct, yes. Bricklink has a very useful parts catalogue. There's quite a lot of these, sorted into three categories:

Not quite true.

The large lego set ever was the Death Star II. This replaced the former largest lego set ever, the Imperial Star Destroyer. Both were part of the Ultimate Collectors series, which unfortunately is no longer available.

I know this because I have built, the Star Destroyer. I also have a fully assembled Blockade Runner as well as the Millennium Falcon.

I like to thing this makes me cool.

u/armada127 · 2 pointsr/videos

This might get buried in the comments, But I would just like to point out that there are two versions of each model; a more realistic expensive one, and a more play-set like one that includes mini-figures.

  • The realistic Star Destroyer (the one shown in the video) is actually close to $2000.

  • The Death Star, however is the play set one with the mini figures so it's only $400.

  • There is also a play version of the Star Destroyer for $400

  • And a model version of the Death Star for $1200.

    Edit: LEGO is expensive, I've been playing with LEGO play sets since I was about 4. There is a lot of work that goes into these toys and it's kind of sad that they seem to be dying compared to the video game generation (not that I'm against video games, I love video games, I just also like LEGO a whole lot.)

    Edit 2: My mistake, this is the one in the video which is $400.

That's a decent price. This bulk tub of parts is 2.4 pounds, 405 pieces, and $30. Say the tub is 0.4 pounds, that's $15 per pound of lego.

Not really Walmart, licensing and retail pricing has very little to do with product manufacturing. The majority of stuff you buy, not just toys, are priced far beyond the product.

My son has been asking for some that are no longer produced for Christmas...and the prices they are going for on eBay make Masterpiece Transformers look like free McDonalds toys in comparison. However, if I became a multi-millionaire overnight, I'd probably buy at least a few of these bad boys. I already bought this one and spent a day putting it together and it was a lot of fun and the finished product is pretty big compared to most Lego sets. I can't imagine how big the Super Star Destroyer must be.

u/ooryl2 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

hmm checks Ooryl's username, yep gotta be some Star Wars on Ooryl's wishlist. Over various moves over the years, Ooryl has lost Tales from Mos Eisley Cantina and Cloak of Deception Hardcover from this bookshelf full of books.

Ooryl also has on Ooryl's list the Old Republic Republic Striker-class Starfighter Lego Set to go with the Sith Fury Interceptor that Ooryl already owns.

Someday Ooryl really hopes to own the Lego Super Star Destroyer but it is way too expensive for Qrygg to ever imagine receiving it as a gift, even from Qrygg's family.


u/killfluffy · 2 pointsr/lepin

That x-wing came off eBay. I think it's either a Lele or Lepin version of a 90's era Lego set. This is the set:

Don't spend more than $20 on it if you buy it. I got mine for like $11 including shipping. There are a lot of sellers who offer this set but, the number of them available tended to rise and fall when I was watching it. One week there were none, another week there were dozens.

EDIT: This is the discontinued Lego brand version:

u/Matronix · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Yep, they have for years now. They are one of the best things ever. They use to be green and you had to buy them separately. I think in some of the younger kids LEGO (non-DUPLO) sets they have started to include them...but you can still buy them separately. Even Amazon has them.

First off, I think this is the most elaborate contest I've ever participated in, so congratulations for that :P Fear cuts deeper than swords. I hope some of my items are awesome enough for some extra credit ;) Also I wasn't sure if duplicates are allowed. I will revise if necessary.

1.) Something grey and it's been on my wishlist.

2.) Rain, well not technically rain, she is a water bender :P Previously on my wishlist.

3.) Unusual, I think this is something I would use like twice a year. With ice cream or cereal.

4.) Someone else My sister and I want to start playing tabletop games. Previously on my wishlist.

5.) "Book" I took a little bit of liberty with this one because it's a graphic novel. But it's Batman, so...(Previously on my wishlist).

6.) Under a dollar.

7.) Cats There's a catbus in it, which is pretty much the best part of the movie. Previously on my wishlist.

8.) Beautiful As a Star Wars fan having the original trilogy on Blu Ray would be beautiful to me. I love high definition movies, especially ones that are aesthetically pleasing. Previously on my wishlist.

9.) Movie As a Browncoat, I would encourage anyone who has a remote interest in Sci-Fi to give this a chance. Previously on my wishlist.

10.) Zombie tool I don't think this needs explanation.

11.) (Updated) Useful for future. I have a desire to create meaningful video games. Previously on wish list.

12.) Add on I actually had this on my wishlist but removed it because add-on items are lame.

13.) Most expensive As previously stated, I want to be a game developer/designer so not only would it be fun to play with, I could create with it too. Previously on list.

14.) Bigger than breadbox Total in the box it is bigger than a breadbox. Previously on wishlist.

15.) Bigger than a golf ball It's a large book. Previously on wishlist.

16.) Smells good As a guy...I enjoy the scent of lavender.

17.) Safe for children toy I don't think this needs any introduction of why it's awesome.

18.) Back to school drawing helps keep me sane. Previously on my list.

19.) Current obsession I'm a noob to tabletop games. But have been wanting to get into it obsessively within the past month or so. And this also takes my love of A Song of Ice and Fire into the mix. Previously on list.

20.) [Amazing] ( I've seen one of these in person at the mall and it literally made me stop walking the resolution was so incredible. I know it's as expensive as dicks...but man...when these are affordable...

Bonus 2) Made in Oregon I would have put Tillamook Ice Cream, since it's pretty awesome...but alas not on Amazon.

Edit: Changed an item because I saw it won't count because it's a duplicate.

u/kevinstonge · 2 pointsr/pics

They aren't bad ... this is $50 for 800 pieces. Now, 800 pieces sounds like a lot, but if you have this box in front of you it's not all that much (lots of 1x1 and other tiny pieces). It's not bad, like I said, but for $50 it's just a bucket of plastic made with manufacturing technology that's been in place for decades. The prices are inflated due to brand recognition only. Then the kits have even more inflated prices due to double brand recognition (e.g., LEGO + Star Wars!)

u/xIrish · 2 pointsr/houston

All of the LEGO stores in the Houston area are roughly the same size, I'm afraid. If you're looking for particular parts, you could use a site like Bricklink, but it's not exactly an easy site to navigate. You could also buy something like this from Amazon--I can't recall seeing them in the Woodlands or Galleria stores but I also wasn't looking for them, so you may want to call and check.

u/Aperture_Kubi · 2 pointsr/sysadmin

Ok, so these large Lego boxes represent our VM hosts. The Lego inside of them are all our VM guests. There's no reason why you can't take something from one host to another, because all the hosts can stack (proceed to put those storage boxes on top of each other, because they're built for that).

u/chewy628 · 2 pointsr/askgaybros

I always enjoy these toys with a friend. ;)

u/Wampitty · 2 pointsr/nottheonion

They’ve always carried some version of the basic brick box. Here’s one:

That’s about 7c per piece at MSRP, which is significantly less than the average 10c per piece in non licensed theme sets and ~12-14c in licensed sets.

They’re just not heavily advertised because they simply don’t sell that well. Consumers like the themes and licenses and more unique parts. And that’s not to say you can’t just build whatever you want out of the pieces in a themed set - people do that all of the time just to chase down more unique elements.

u/Stofenthe1st · 2 pointsr/StarWars

Well this is a toy pretty much, a really awesome one, but a toy nonetheless. As for this Grievous it was actually gifted to me from a friend for christmas. If you're looking for less kiddy stuff I'd suggest you peruse through BigBadToyStore and see if there's anything you like. After that you're going to want to compare prices with Amazon and eBay and see which comes out to the better deal including shipping. I'm not too huge of a collector so I just use those sites mostly and I don't know of any dedicated Star Wars merch sites.

As for this big lug (he is huge!) you should could easily find him at toys'r'us and wal-mart. Here's his amazon listing so you at least know the price of it:

Lies. Only a mgtow could afford the Millennium Falcon

u/Mottwally · 2 pointsr/talesfromtechsupport

It's funny you ask that. Last night, as a pal, and I were working on putting together a bit of the Millennium Falcon Lego set. That topic came up.

It's a fun little project for us to do, and gives us a chance to get together, and talk about all those things that 98% of folks would just stare at you saying, "Really? Man, you are the biggest dork I've ever met."

I brought up having a fun bit of banter on Reddit with someone, and we were disagreeing about which Indy movie is the best. So, we of course had about an hour long conversation rating the movies from best to worst. I asked him how he felt about The Crystal Skull, and he gave me the answer I will now use if the topic ever comes up again. After asking him, he said, The Crystal What?? I've never heard of that movie..

So, there is my overly long worded opinion that the movie is in fact, like eating a hot circle of garbage. Then again. If you threw that movie in. I'd watch it, and not say a thing about what I think about the movie. Because, Harrison Ford.

/u/LaLocaChristina just gifted me a big set of basic Legos the other day, and I'm planning on using them to build a small box which I will make into a mould box.

But to finish off my mould box, I need a Lego Baseplate on which to build the box of course! So I'd love one of those bad boys!

Thanks for the contest!

> basic affordable set with lots of pieces

Not with Lego, although you can find some good collections on ebay.

If I needed lots of pieces, I would get one of these: or (or anything from the "bricks & more" line )...

Although be sure to do the legwork, some of these go on sale for exorbitant prices. That first one shouldn't be $70 even in a million years.

If you are looking to get sets 'for adults', there is a great collection of them here: and that whole site has a lot more.

Personally, anything 'cuusoo' is going to be awesome. They are like the reddit of lego set creation:

u/Bobby_Marks · 1 pointr/Frugal

My son is getting a big bucket of LEGOs for Christmas: or

It's going to be a long lasting toy that helps him learn and be creative, and most importantly they aren't exhaustible like art supplies are.

As someone who grew up poor with two brothers, I can definitely say that Christmas can be done better and more cheaply with one great group gift, than with a bunch of smaller gifts for each child. Also, Goodwill tends to have $1 toys and presents right around the holidays. It's not new, but IMO parents do their children a disservice by teaching them to expect new things.

u/8bitesq · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Hold on to your butts, kids. This party is being held a muthafuckin' Jurassic Park. Yeah. That's right. I said it. Jurassic Park. It's gonna be awesome.

The theme? Secret agents. Spies. Spy vs. Spy. That sort of thing. I'm coming as Nick Fury because, Captain, he's the spy. His secrets have secrets.

We're going to kick this party off old school with an ALL 90'S MUSIC MIX. I'm talking: Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit, Backtreet Boys' I Want It That Way, Sir Mix-A-Lot's Baby Got Back (because you know /u/NJBilbo got back), Hanson's MMMBop, Beck's Loser, Vanilla Ice's Ice Ice Baby, Counting Crows' Mr. Jones, Ricky Marin's Livin' La Vida Loca, Third Eye Blind's Semi-Charmed Life, Sugar Ray's Fly and wrapping it up with Kris Kross' Jump because we gonna jump allllll night long!

Now, for food? That's tricky. So many people like so many different things. And I don't want to be
too predictable. So we're doing Indian food. I got curries for days for you guys. Vegetarian dishes. Meaty dishes. I'm pretty partial to the chicken tikka masala. But that's me. (If you're not a fan, we've got a sundae bar, too, so just, you know, go nuts on candy and ice cream and stuff.)

Decorations? Uhm. We're at [i]Jurassic Park[/i]. What kind of decorations do you think we have? Blown up dinosaurs with spy-style laser beams on their heads being ridden by former Presidents.

How did you guess!?

I'd show you a design for the invitations but, uh, I haven't gotten the self destruct thing figured out. They keep blowing up before anyone can read them. So. maybe some guests will be missing eyebrows. And, uh... fingers. (My bad.)

Now, let's talk presents.

For /u/NJBilbo I'm torn between this calendar (because this guy ought to keep himself organized and challenge his mind at the ame time) and the LEGO Death Sar (because it's a freakin' LEGO death star!) and basically a million other things.

And for /u/SympatheticStranger it's between a Willow Tree figure (because they are the best) and this Starfleet Academy hoodie because I like
need* one of these now.

So what do you think guys?

Party of the century?

Because I'm thinking party of the century.

u/tr1ppn · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Trying again without links:

So, I decided that I don't feel like spending more time on this, and I got most of them, so let's roll with it.

Riddle 1


[Item - Spaetzle Maker]

So this is kind of a stretch, but hear me out. Over the weekend, I let the "German" in me out, and I cooked a wonderful meal consisting of schnitzel (pork shoulder blade, fried to perfection) and a side of spaetzle (German dumplings). That evening, I also bought a bottle of Roscato (a sweet red wine from Italy) to have with dinner, and it was DELICIOUS. While making the meal and drinking the wine, I mentioned to my wife how great it would be to have a spaetzle maker. She agreed, so it's on the WL.

Riddle 2

A doormat (though based on theme it should really be a broom, but that doesn't make sense in your riddle)

[Item - Subaru Floor Mats]

So on Thursday I bought myself a new-to-me 2011 Subaru Legacy. It's pretty cool minus the issues with the key, but besides the $100 I had to spend to "fix" it, it's grand. I noticed when checking out the car that it had gray Jetta floor mats. Note that my car has black leather interior, and is a Subaru, not a VW Jetta. I found these, they have good reviews, so I put them on my WL as something to get for my new car so I can get rid of those awful floor mats.
Riddle 3

A hat

[Item - Sunglasses]

There are two things every good baseball/softball/wiffleball player needs. A good hat, and a good pair of sunglasses. I always wear a hat (thanks a lot, male pattern baldness), so I've got plenty of those (need to get a new one, but Amazon doesn't have the one I want). What I don't have is a good pair of sunglasses for playing ball outside. My aviators are scratched, and, well, wearing aviators to play sports doesn't exactly work well. These are sitting on my WL for that day where I finally go "DAMMIT I NEED SUNGLASSES TO GO WITH MY HAT."
Riddle 4

A book

[Item - A+ Cert Study Book]

So this one is REALLY lame compared to my other stories. For this, it's an ACTUAL BOOK (how lame). I work in IT, and one of the most BASIC qualifications for most jobs is CompTIA A+ certification. I know that with a brief refresher I could pass the test pretty easily, but I don't want to take any risks, and would rather study up and blow it out of the water. I need this book in order to help me do that.
Riddle 5

This one I'm not sure about, but I can't take any more time to figure it out (thanks a lot, work). A trunk? that seems to make the most sense based on the theme here....

[Item - LEGO VW Camper Van]

This one is a real stretch. When I went through this the first time, I thought that you were looking for "A car" (boot//trunk//place to store stuff or even hide in), but then when I looked at the theme of everything, I decided that was wrong. I changed my mind and went with a trunk. To combine those two things, here's the LEGO version of a car, which has a trunk, and also has a little suitcase on the top of it, as it is meant for camping and camping activities - a great place to hide away from everything!

A cape!

[Item - LEGO Movie Batman figure]

What better way to exemplify the answer of "A cape" to a riddle than with a legit superhero. I actually bought this little batman for a friend of mine, and after putting it together, thought I should have one myself. He has two faces, a cape, the bat helmet, and a batarang. This character is simply awesome in the movie, and looks pretty damn awesome to boot! (Get it? Boot? From the last riddle? ^(I get it ... it's not funny...))

No WL Additions were made for this, I improvised and managed to connect everything to something already on my WL. Thanks for the contest!!!

I used to get the magazine from Lego and was part of the club. I've wanted this set since it first was in that mag. Back when they made it it was only almost 300. Now look at it. This is probably one that I will always keep wanting but never get to have. This is like my lego crush! I also wanted the imperial star destroyer version too. I may have these two mixed up even but look how pretty that is. drools

u/HylianDoctor · 1 pointr/robotics

I saw someone else in the comments mention Lego Mindstorm; that would be a great idea for your son! Not only is the Lego Mindstorm kit still being produced and supported, but there's an entire professional organization centered around challenging kids to learn to build robots: FIRST Robotics

I'm a recent high school graduate and spent four years on a high school FIRST team. I can't say enough great things about FIRST; they're a really cool program that has competitions for all ages where kids get to build a robot to do certain tasks and then compete against other robots.

The very youngest level is FIRST Lego League Junior. While your son might be just a little bit young for it for now, you could certainly reach out to see if there are teams in your area, and if your son is still interested in robots in a year or two, this would be an awesome way to give him another resource to learn and play with robots.

Here's their website, you can read more about it and sign up to get further information here:

You can also purchase the Lego mindstorm kits on their own, you might need to help him with it and keep him away from some of the smaller pieces, but he'll certainly enjoy watching it move around for now and you can use it to start teaching him how to program with their software. There's a lot you can do with the parts that come with it to get it to drive around, pick up things, etc.

I helped run a summer camp last year centered around Lego mindstorm, and we taught our kids how to make robots that could follow a line of tape using the color sensor, or find their way out of a maze using a touch sensor!

Here's the starter kit:

And here's their website with the download for the software, as well as some how-to videos to help learn how to program the robot:

You will need a device that can run the software and write programs, probably a computer or laptop of some sort.

Tell your son he's super cool for already having such a strong interest in robots, I hope he keeps that passion as he grows up! Props to you for looking for ways to support his interests and help him learn more too, that's some A+ parenting right there.

Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions about FIRST or Lego Mindstorm, I'm a huge geek for this stuff and I'd love to help out someone who's also looking to get into it for the first time :P

lego Delorean this is pretty neat! I'd pick Dead Island if I had the choice!

u/legotech · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Any kind of Lego makes everything awesome :) My nephew graduated from UCSB a few weeks ago and the speaker used Lego to show how they work better together than apart and whole family was laughing.

The Delorean is under $30!


I'm part of a team!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!

  1. What would be really super freaking awesome is if I was able to go to New York with my SO and either bring the dogs with or find accomadation for them that wouldn't destroy my already dwindled financials. I just really really really wanna see my grandma. It's been way too long and neither of us are really good with picking up the phone and calling. I think I get that from her directly. We joke about it every so often. Anyway, yeah, I miss her a bunch. Plus, there is also my (practically) sister and her family that I also love seeing. But yeah, New York means money or leaving the SO with loads of responsibility which she is not too keen on. Wow, this was much longer than I meant it to be. Almost forgot this was a contest post, woops.

  2. I never added any sets cause they get so pricey. Especially the Star Wars one! And then if you want some of the older ones that too gets pricey because of availabilty! Ya can't win! But why not, added a few of them, not too sure which would be better this Batman and Nightwing set, cause Nightwing or the simpler Wizard set cause yay magic.

  3. Ah, I see. You're using the question marks as a metaphor for what the true meaning of life is in this ever expanding universe. That's real deep man.

  4. I'm part of a team!

  5. Cool, I have done that a few times.

    Hey, so if you don't mind my asking, what had/has you bummed? Also, sorry for making this post so long, didn't think I'd just keep typing. I'll stop now, I swear.

    Oh, no, wait. Thanks for the contest!

I only work in black. And sometimes very very dark grey.

this looks cool

I love that movie! I went to watch it with my 2 friends and got kinda mad because they were on their phones and being loud the whole time. They made fun of me for liking it and said it was a "stupid kid's movie." They knew that from the beginning, so they shouldn't have come! Well, anyways, thanks for the contest!

K'nex do sell sets that are intended to be build. Such as their roller coasters. Lego does the same. But Lego also sells boxes of a large assortment of pieces that are intended to use to build whatever you want. Proof? K'nex set lego assortment

Nice job OP! My dad loves Lego as well and used to get me a really big technic set every Christmas and lately he has been really into technics too so I got him the Bucket Wheel Excavator as seen below

LEGO® Technic Bucket Wheel Excavator 42055 Construction Toy

He is currently in the process of taking it all apart to rebuild it into its second form!

I recommend this one... relatively cheap for lego (6c a piece)

Saturn V

I already have it... it is sitting above my TV where the Jets are losing...

Well this Millennium falcon is $800 wheras you could get a small 3D printer for $300 so assuming you print 7000. So if you print more than 2700 bricks it's already breaking even.

I posted some tips above

I've been above by 5 dollars and owned the buy box on certain items... I know because I use a repicer but manual set my highs/lows and still monitor on a regular basis.

There is a few reasons why someone can own a buy box over another seller, its not solely price.....


I believe inventory amount matters


Seller feedback %

Sellers simply being eligible for the buy box or not, sometimes you just won't be eligible for the buy box on certain items(don't think I've experienced but see the line on the seller app)

There is probably a dozen more

Another thing if you're price so far above the MSRP or the price someone assumed was the MSRP when they created the listing.... You won't be able to win the buy box, that is why you see "available from these sellers" on listing.

Like this example, the price is out of the buy box range so no one actually wins the buy box.

u/Bazookatier · 0 pointsr/skyrim

Yeah, I'd buy it...When Lego realizes that their sets are all far too overpriced. $459.99 for a Death Star is complete bullshit. How am I supposed to afford child support and live out my childhood?

Ah, well. I guess it's back to Skyrim for me. At least $20 can still get me hours of jaw-dropping entertainment instead of a fucking dirt bike transporter.

u/tractorcrusher · 0 pointsr/legodeal

LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V 21309 Building Kit

You can also buy one with a slightly damaged box for $91.34

If you don’t see it available anymore someone snaked it.

Edit: welp someone snagged it without posting, of course

if you're talking about the Cabal Harvester Drop Ship then here is a link to it as Evelegend mentioned.

I guess I missed that part. Unbreakable, for me, was the best of m. night shyamalan's films, mainly because when i watched the sixth sense, my sister, sitting right next to me, leans over after the first bedroom scene with bruce willis, when he's sitting on the park bench, and whispers, "he's dead."

Luckily her son is godsend at divulging endings. Snape killed Dumbledore, Ned Stark gets beheaded, it was Kevin Spacey all along, those were the droid they were looking for, you left the broccoli casserole at home, in the oven, because you're a moron. Haha, at least I'm saving up to give him this for birthday, because he loves Star Wars and Legos.
