    Random picture moment, brought to you by Rouen, France.

    This is the tower where Joan of Arc was held captive prior to being burnt at the stake. Yes, I'm feeling that mournful this morning.

    Can we get some pics of the construction toys?

    Note: I'll be disappointed if they don't look like this:
    You'll be disappointed then. :P

    Yes. Yes you did.

    Normally wouldn't touch McDonalds but due to my rather foul mood I decided that I wasn't putting up with the substandard eggs served in my building for breakfast

    Eating a bacon and egg sandwich! :D
    Yeah awesome job on the mod status. Very deserving. You also got a new avatar..very fancy. I like it. I could do with a sandwich like that, but no bacon in stock for me :(

    My construction toys are in storage in the loft I think. Half tempted to see how they're doing. Pretty sure I got a stockpile of my Lego collection up there too.

    To give an idea of what we have here today.

    We have Hilti, Nationwide Platforms and Mammoet with their SPMT and crane. I would put up pictures but they can all be searched.

    I think I may have some things left but my mother just did a make over of the basement so no idea if anything is left. Not that I had much of any value anyway.

    Right yeah. Some of my other toys were sent to my younger cousins. I know my tonka truck was one of them as I saw it go in the box. Sad moment. I was adamant the Lego stuff had to stay though

    One of my friends just moved into a new house after a divorce and had all his old things taken out of storage - saw him at the weekend and hes got pretty much the same stuff as I had when I was a kid. Transformers, Star Wars, loads of army toys and soldiers. We must have spent about 30 minutes playing with the transformers trying to work out and remember the transformations. One of the most noticeable things is all the old toys are die cast and made from metal. Everything nowadays is plastic and breaks so easily.

    Well I see it like this.

    Its lego
    Its Star Wars
    Its Extremely rare limited edition
    It costs almost $4000 for a new one. $1300 for a used

    I can explain away 3 of the 4

    The price tag is hard to swallow

    Hmm around 1000 for used and over 2500 for new. That's pretty steep for a toy. What year is that from? If it's more than 20 years I'd like to know what kind of person buys that and keeps it 'new'. :P

    Wow, that's quite the price jump. I guess that's what happens when it's a collectors edition. I see they have a cheaper version but doesn't look as good as the collector version.

    Although thinking about it with your multi-nationalism wouldn't you have to pay a chunk of tax on a lottery win?

    Nope. My wife is an EU citizen and I have residency here so I don't see that being an issue. :) I wouldn't buy a new wife however. :P
