    I bought a new bookcase, which means I can buy more books, too, right? Isn't that how it works?

    Until you run out of space for more bookcases, begin making piles everywhere :lol:

    A few purchases from my vacation last week. These are all from an Indian import shop.

    An insanely gorgeous shawl for me:

    A labradorite ring for me:

    For my cat sitters, these pillowcases (which can also be wallhangings):

    Careful, a top heavy weight imbalance could cause a tipping with you under it. Can you switch them, put the taller one below as the base? Might still tip but the shorter one falling off may do less damage? Or add strapping, connect the case to the wall.

    Thanks for the suggestion. The new bookcase did come with hardware to attach it to the wall.

    The local branch of a German big box store is going out of business and therefore has quite the discounts. Bought two pairs of shoes, blurays of Godzilla vs Kong, The Suicide Squad and WW84, DVDs of the two animated Adam West Batman sequels, Ghostbusters action figures of Ray and Egon, as well as a fitting Ecto-1, and I paid less than 80 Euros altogether.

    You have to post pics and review of what the set is like, and if it's worth it

    I've never quite figured out the posting photos option as I don't use any hosting sites for them and I can't figure out any way to just upload them straight from my device.

    But in terms of a review - the set is fantastic.

    10 bags of lego pieces, which as is standard this days make up complete segments of the set.

    It's a fun build that's challenging enough to feel rewarding but simple enough to not be frustrating. By bag two you already have some of the transformation mechanism coming into play. (Because yes, the set transforms from robot to truck without needing to be rebuilt)

    When complete it's solid and chunky and stands about 35cm tall. It has 19 points of articulation so pretty posable for a lego set and is h9nestly more detailed than many of the actual transformers toys.

    As a fan of both transformers and lego, it's just wonderful.

    You can only upload pictures right to the BBS if you have a premium membership.

    There are free hosting sites out there, though, such as Imgur and PostImage. At least with PostImage, you don't even have to register if you don't want to (although there may be restrictions in that case as to size or how long the images are available).

    Just went to Lego.com and Optimus is sold out. Have to be notified when it's back in stock.

    No the website goes to the local site here in Australia.
    Optimus Prime the BTTF Delorean and the Horizon Tallneck have been 3 of the best sellers in the last month or so.

    The problem is getting it up to 88 MPH on regular old unleaded gasoline. Plutonium I can afford. Gas, on the other hand....
