Was at LEGO Schaumburg this morning and snagged the last Porsche. They had one Pagani left on the shelf too but I already have one in route.

Was shocked to learn they don’t participate in the VIP points program. They gave me a 5% discount instead.
Super weird, that store has been around forever.

I have both on the way from Lego.

I haven't seen that Porsche 963 LMDh before. That's for the 2023 racing season. Gonna have to check it out.
Just came out.

Saw both at wallymart. Picked up the pagani today and got it together. Kinda dumb the top won't clothes with the guy inside unless he has no hair or helmet.

Thought it was a nice touch they have little ferrari logos for the headrests :ROFLMAO: The ferrari models always seem to have these little details

Here's a good example of just how big these cars have gotten compared to the early models

And since I really have no where else to put this right now.......it will reside on top of my xbox for the time being

I will say, if you don't like decals, maybe avoid this one :ROFLMAO: I was not on my decal game today too.

Yeah its a ridiculous amount of stickers for this. Stickers are kind of a bummer.

The Pagani was a nice change, only like 8 stickers for a speed set, which is really low.

That's the "Lego Discovery Center" for the Legoland. It's basically just a gift shop.

There IS a proper Lego Store in the mall that is part of VIP;

Best "retail price" deals are if you are part of the Barnes and Noble program (10% off sale price, including clearance).

B+N almost NEVER discounts any lego, so its really only good for "When you have to have it" or large adult sets that simply never go on sale.

When you sign up you get 20% off everything (including lego) but there are some maxes; I bought the Home Alone house and one other set and it made my membership "free" with that initial 20% off.

Porsche 963 build tonight.

The insane amount of decals on this one took a bit.

My decal game is getting better far from ideal.

Top tip: put the car together first, then get the decals on so they line up better. If you just center on each individual tile during the build you’re not gonna like the outcome.

double tip, use twizzers or a pocket knife to apply the stickers. Stick a small corner on the knife/twizzers and it makes it much easier to line up

especially if it becomes a 1 off set and they dont make more LOTR sets. Its already been hinted that they only had one shot at this set, so it may be the only LOTR for awhile, if ever again.
Ah shit, I meant the 963 I got. :rofl:

Got my big box o’ stuff today. There’s some more shit underneath but didn’t want the wife to see. Got her the bouquet of wild flowers too (it’s on the bottom)
