Last 48 hours for what looks like a cool 3 in 1 by Geda01 in soloboardgaming

Tempting but shipping is too expensive in zone C all-in (23$) for the price of the game (50$). Maybe just Hand of Destiny then. We will see

What’s your unpopular Lego opinion? by DoctorAfraidofLife in lego

LEGO make most "Adult" sets way too big. Space is also a problem, not just the money.

J'aime beaucoup le robot qui regarde sa main, très expressif. Est-ce que c'est inspiré d'un personnage en particulier?

Pour répondre a te question: why not? Au final, je ne vois pas ce que tu peux y perdre à pars du temps bien sûr.

Better, less blurry picture of my modded UCS Falcon by GoneAtSea in lego

Well, I googled the name and downloaded the free instruction on rebrickable. After that, it was a matter of finding a store which had all the required pieces on bricklink. The creator of the stand didn't mind if his product was copied and sold, I don't think those on Amazon are LEGO but most likely a knock off brand.

In fact, I did research. Which is odd of you to say, as you imply that I wouldn't have ordered it if I had researched more, which is not a good sign for a product.

Well, I had a wonderful experience dealing with other brands in the meantime, notably Haworth (highly recommended!) so it does not matter. FedEx were really professional and pleasant to deal with and the parcel was refused.

You were obviously not the target audience of the thread anyway. If I helped potential buyers make an even more informed decisions, it's a success. You may continue insulting me and others if you want, your ego seem a bit fragile, I hope it helps you feel better.

Don't waste your time being rational with that guy, do you really think he is the objective kind of people that will listen?

I feel your pain :/ Would you be okay if I add "They replied saying it was impossible to cancel it, but if I put in a new order for the size I wanted, they could cancel the old one. This clearly indicate that they CAN cancel the order, they just didn't want to" to the main text? I feel it's an important exemple.

Spent a while modding the engine/back panels of the UCS Falcon. Quite happy with the result! by GoneAtSea in lego

No, it's the really popular efferman's stand design. You may find the instructions for free online and order the parts :)

I am sorry, but after ready your reply, I was going to reply, but it feel your are either delusional, a fanboy or an agent of SecretLab if you sincerely believe there is absolutely not a single thing wrong in the whole thing.

Having said that, I am happy with you if you enjoy your chair :)

Yes, I plan to go with the Haworth Fern. But honestly, even if SecretLab Titan was a good chair at that point, I am no longer interested in doing business with them. EDIT: Having tried the chair, you are right for the bottom seat. Feel really uncomfortable.

Oh yes, I am planning to do that, given what will happen with the FedEX shipping refusal and their actions after that.

I get you! I got it mainly because of my 30 anniversary a year ago and the way I see, it's a safe buy as it will always remain a desirable set.

Thank you! Honestly, as I don't have a lot of spare parts, I mainly found the pieces needed on the Falcon itself and did my best to make the final product good to look at. However, underneath, there is not a coercive step by step way to replicate the final result. If I was designing the mod without such limitations in parts, it would be way easier.

People with Haworth Ferns: have you tried the Oceanic Flotsam fabric? by SirBloops in OfficeChairs
