I just bought three books this weekend: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
and the LEGO Idea Book
Also, my fiance and I went to Voldemart to see if they had Mario Party 9, since it was released today, but they didn't have any copies in stock yet, so BOO Voldemart! >:(
In LEGO-related news, while I was at the Books A Million in Harrisburg (formerly the Harrisburg Borders), I happened to find a 7287 LEGO City Police Boat! I bought that sucker, because I'd been planning on buying another one so I could make the Republic of New Jersey version of a Kestrel Class Frigate, but the last time I went to the LEGO store, I discovered that the set had been discontinued (which is funny, since it only came out last year), and none of the local retailers (K-Mart, Target, Voldemart, etc) or Toys R Us stores had any, meaning that I would be forced to resort to Bricklink, but I found this one instead! That pretty much made my day.
I also managed to finish my LEGO submarine design tonight... It only has 801 pieces at the final count. I should have most of the black 45 degree slope pieces on-hand, thanks to the Arundel Mills LEGO Store PAB wall consistently having those available.... The rest of the stuff will require me hunting through PAB and BrickLink, so it will be a while before this project gets finished. Here's a sneak-peek of the interior, though... I used the garrison caps because, for some reason, the ONE piece of headgear that they do NOT have in LDD is the sailor cap...Sub WIP Interior
