Re: What does your dream show/con transportation system look like?

With respect to flying: The best (and expensive) solution I've seen was when a friend bought a hardshell gun case (like a Pelican Case) and laser-cut foam layers to fit around it. Made it through airports without a scratch.

Re: Any Bionicle/Hero Factory/Bigfig CCBS Parts People Want gone?

Hi there - I've attached images of the three I've found. I know I own them all, along with a complete set of Kohrak, Kohrak Va, Turaga, Matoran, and probably some others. I believe they're in storage over on the island - but I'm happy to keep them in mind next time I'm over there, and see if they're...

Re: Any Bionicle/Hero Factory/Bigfig CCBS Parts People Want gone?

I actually have some of the original sets here which I wouldn't mind being gone - they're opened & built, but come with canisters and instructions. If you're interested I can dig them out & verify.

Yes! The schedule has specific times marked for trading, and even a minifig-specific one on Friday! These were originally intended to give people a time and place to fully utilize our "trade bags" but there's no reason not to bring extra stuff you don't need - so even if you don't want to bring anyt...

Re: BrickCan AFOL Newbie - Any tips?

Thanks everyone for answering this question so thoroughly! The "BrickCan Intro" is definitely a great place to start, and is followed by our Meet & Greet. My best advice is to always remember that AFOL's are generally a super-friendly and inclusive bunch, so don't be afraid to start a conversation -...

Hey, I just wanted to add to this - Emily just messaged me on facebook as well, disappointed she didn't know about the last meeting (she asked when it was, and I said last night). How are not-quite-yet-members supposed to know about the meetings, so they can attend them to become real members? Seems...

Hi all, A while back I mentioned I had a yellow castle for sale at some point - some point is now. Ayleen and I built it to see whether or not it was complete, and for the experience - which I highly recommend! I've attached three pictures - the instructions are in excellent condition, the box in re...

The Teddy Bear is a great touch! Love it.

Re: Dimensions at Dollarama

The store downtown near Waterfront had just a few - a couple Gimli's, a couple of the Emmet construction ones, and a few Unikitty. I picked up one Unikitty because I hadn't found any down South. Probably like 10 packs total on the shelf, who knows how much they might have in stock...the stores in Ca...

Re: Dimensions at Dollarama

I'll try to check the one on Marine Drive in Marpole this weekend. I picked up about 60 packs at the $0.99 price in the states. Each store had a different selection of ones available - some very cool, some less so. The Jurassic Park one is great, and I got a whole bunch of the Gimli one for the dwar...

Re: Sealed/open box 10030 UCS Star Destroyer

The assortment of greys within the set was not consistent, as it was during the change-over time. My copy is entirely old grey, being bought near the beginning of the production run, but later copies were a mix. I forget if some were 100% new grey, but I believe they were. This made some of the part...
