    Prices aren't hidden, they're on the boxes.

    Which are 9/10 on the base (barcodes). Not in clear view. Not directly in front of you. You have to look for it. Therefore, hidden.

    That's the only thing that annoys me about Lego stores. You really have to hunt around to find the prices.

    Ah base plates cheers!

    Yowzers they are more expensive than I remember... Not sure I want to spend as much money as I need to cover my shelves! Plus they don't have the cool dunes or craters I remember as a kid

    Might get one or two just to stand minifigures on and then cover the shelves in grey material for the models.

    it's a lovely set.

    Good to know, thank you. She has her eye on the tower too, which is about £170 I think. Maybe next year!

    Has anyone else got the Star Wars Advent calendar? Have to say I'm slightly underwhelmed with it so far. It's my first one, so was just wondering if this was typical, or if we're just having a bit of a duff year? It all seems quite 'prequel trilogy' biased.

    Had last year's, boo. Thought it was poor so skipped this year. And yep, was prequel heavy,  but it was more that I didn't rate the builds. Required some heavy imagination.

    I don't!
    Broadly speaking, it's all boxed in the loft, and I have one set out at a time. When I'm done with that, it gets boxed up and the next one comes out.

    I'm very jealous of the people (usually Americans) who have an entire basement / garage / spare room to devote to their collection.

    Is proud owner of man cave.
    Not using it for the LEGO though. The LEGO goes in a trunk under my sons bed. I have three big unopened sets out in the cave but other than that it's just lazy storage and a bicycle garage.

    I've got my modulars on top of my ikea entertainment unit, it covers a whole wall and gives enough space for 48 bricks wide and 7 of the 32 wide base plates long, I've modified some of the modulars to be on 48x48 base plates so I can add detail, then filled in some of the 16 wide gaps with smaller buildings and pavement. . I've added smaller sets as well in places, so for instance once I build the town hall it's going to have the Lego back to the future car flying overhead, it's quite fun trying to see what you can do in a small space :)

    R2D2 guards my drinks cabinet.  If I could get the tray for him,  I'd put my shot glasses there. The rest,  well I have a couple of shelves around the TV unit.

    Out of curiosity, what are modulars? Are they these?

    @Mike1980

    Sorry - can't see what you're linking to. It's my understanding that when people talk about Modulars, they're referring to the Modular Building series, like the Town Hall, Palace Cinema etc.

    There is also a Mini Modulars set which is, unsurprisingly, a smaller scale version of some of the Modular buildings.

    That link works in Sweden, just so you know. Looking hawt.

    I went to the weirdest, coolest LEGO exhibition when i was visiting my parents. An AFOL had put his stuff up in an old pigsty (stie?). The piece de la resistance was a complete set of modulars including the market street and café corner.

    He really perked up when I complimented him on that. Guess I was the first AFOL he'd met in the flesh.

    Anyhows. Everyone I've met that actually buy the modulars warn me. It's a slipepry slope and before long you start trawling eBay for those rare early sets.
