The pickabrick wall in Legoland was not all that great but I spent a little too much for what I got anyways. Hoping the Lego Store in Tagard is better. No tax there at least. :)

So what was at legoland PAB,I wonder if Lego dosnt stock the parks as well ,now that they dont have direct control over the parks.
At brickcon ,the girl that had worked as a master builder said that they would also have a hard time getting specific parts sometime,they even used bricklink cause it was quicker than the lego group.

Also, the minimum order amount on Bricklink (if any) is always much lower than ordering directly from LEGO.

On my way back now. Not far from the Washington Square Mall in Tigard, Oregon. I will be going there tomorrow. Hoping the wall there is better than the others I've seen so far. Don't think I will make the Con. Had some long days of driving and shopping on the way home so I don't think I can talk the family into letting me stop there.

I just ordered my 3rd emerald night yesterday.The set really has some nice pieces.I just wanted 3 coaches behind the engine.Of course I have to rebuild the engine because Adam destroyed it,even with instructions I was having a hard time putting it together.

Don't worry about it, Dave... I think it's a bit too much of a hassle to arrange now. I'm going down to Seattle soon so I'll just pick one up myself (along with a 10199 Winter Toy Shop, hopefully) - just not at the Brickcon discount price!

Just say your from the con and you forgot your name badge at your hotel,or that youve stopped in bellvue first than picking up your name badge,they dont check that well I think.besides you deserve a break on the price.

I'm back and have two Fire Brigades. Did not get as much bulk lego as I had hoped. Glad I got what I got and had a great time doing it. Wish I could have gone to Brickcon but I will just have to be happy with 5 theme parks, 1 theatrical dinner and 2 museums on this trip. :)

PAB at the con was pretty weak unfortunatly , alot of the same peices as last year . BUT the PAB at the Lego store in belleveue was pretty dam awesome though . we got down there on thursday , set up some of our stuff then booted over to the store friday morning . Lucky we did cause they had 1 x 4 wide by 5 high 1/4 arches in Dark brown . Naturally me and Daveed packed all of them :) .
