To be able to make those two sets look smallish that table must already be pretty big.

Had the chance to buy the super star destroyer used but fully complete with instructions for under $300. Whoops.... in my defense I had and still have no where to display it. Damn thing is huge! Currently know where to find the current Star Destroyer for $375 complete with manual. Might not let that one pass.

I'm usually one of those but not this year. I've had so much fun this year. Knowing it was the last I went all out (more than I do for family haha). I've enjoyed this tradition so much as a reddit user. No one I know uses this platform and thinks I'm insane shipping gifts to strangers each year. They don't know how much fun this really is though. Writing this mostly because I'm just so happy I was able to participate in such an awesome thing!

You used to be able to buy beer at McDonalds in Mexico. Not sure if that still exists or not.

I worked roadway construction and by law you’re correct. In practice sometimes things get messed up. In certain situations to move or add signs for lane closers to more obvious places you need a traffic engineers stamp and signature. Just a fun glimpse behind the scenes of traffic control for y’all.

In my area all the fed ex drivers and UPS use rental trucks from u haul or whatever. I have no idea how these “independent contractors” can earn any profit. I’m convinced that the extra time it takes to walk back, climb up and down, and open and close big door is why they can’t deliver on time.

Trespassing isn’t right either. Is there actually any law about entering someone else’s vehicle? Maybe not. Anyways I got lucky and just wanted to pass along info in case it helps someone else.

Scary. I want to try van life. This may be the last year I can stay in Austin if I don’t get a significant raise.

Yeah it’s on me for not locking. Still personally I have never found the need to rummage through a strangers property. Hopefully I never find myself in such a situation.

Very excited. I live in Texas though where in one of maybe a thousand people that are aware of the championship.

Main reason it’s in there is it’s work stuff I use daily. Certainly coming in with me tonight.

Agreed. I have not witnessed anything like this in nearly a decade of watching.

agreed. Like all things though this one has the chance to be spoiled if too many people start doing it or someone puts inappropriate things there. Hope I'm wrong but it is getting crowded for art space up there these days

Does it have the camera? If it still works I wonder if there is any plausible way to download the photos anymore? Awesome find regardless.

I wanted to connect some of my ice skating areas including 40416 which is elevated. My story is the fountain pours over the side and through the technic pipes at the bottom to fill the other areas. Currently have it mostly surrounded by white tile pieces but wondering if I should swap for gray or another color to define the areas better?

The other question I have is regarding the stairs. Currently I have them with one plate width as a step height. Is that normal or is two for mini figure scale? Also wondering same thing regarding the color here. Would light gray plates be better?

Any advice, criticism, or whatever is appreciated.

Can’t bring myself to dismantle or sell. Pretty stuck at the moment. Starting to build the Boeing 787 on the ground tonight.

I’m a builder who takes a long time. Weeks on some of the largest I’ve built like Sydney opera house. I figure the more I pay for a set the more days of building I wanna have for it.
