Dave Perillo is back with his fouth edition to the Classic themes: 6562 Gas Stop Shop. This 1995 Town set had excellent play value for the accessible price point. A gas pump island and two vehicles. I can’t say there was any “Shopping” to be done at the ‘Gas Stop Shop,’ but it fit in very well with your other mid-90s Classic Town sets. These prints are 11″x17″ on coverweight stock. They are available tube-shipped worldwide for $13 each.
Dave Perillo is back with his third edition to the Classic themes: 6279 Skull Island. This 1995 Pirates set was iconic to me as the biggest land-based home to our adventuring Pirates. They had plenty of sailing vessels in their first 6 years of LEGO System sets, but not until 1995 did they have a home which could rival any of the Imperial forces’ structures. These prints are 11″x17″ on coverweight stock. They are available tube-shipped worldwide for $13 each.
Local artist Connor Easley brings us a brand new AFOL poster depicting 4435 Car & Caravan. This limited run is printed on cover weight 11″x17″ paper and is tube-shipped to you for $13. Buy yours today!
Our favorite Denmark-bound builder, Carter Baldwin, has released his Custom Kit #4 instruction to the masses. The Spinner, a MOC inspired by Blade Runner 2049, is completely sold out, and with Carter soon joining the LEGO Designer Team in Billund, we present you with the instructions for your building pleasure. I’d love to see an all black color-shift of this one. The Trans-Black curved slopes and Dark Bluish Gray hinge tops are a bit of a pain to track down, but good luck! Carter and I want to see your variations on his instant classic.
Kit #3 from [CARTER INDUSTRIES], the Spinner from Blade Runner 2049 is a fully articulated wonder. Opening gull-wing doors, a retractable rear wheel for landing and ground maneuvers, a detachable sunroof drone, and fully detailed interior with seating for two.
363 pieces, $100 USD. All 40 kits have been sold. Thank you to everyone who purchased!
The stars have aligned and I now find myself running a brick & mortar (no pun intended. some pun intended?) LEGO retail store. In the front of the warehouse that I sublet, there is an 800sqft street-facing lobby. I’ve turned it into a consignment-based new and used LEGO resell store. LEGO in just about every form is present and available for purchase.
There are 5 large windows on the front of the store. Each has been painted with the original LEGO colors depicted on the set boxes and advertisements of the 1970s. They are vibrant in the sunlight and illuminated from within after dark.
Consignors have their own shelves around the store which they fill with LEGO Minifigures, new sets, used sets, chunks, bulk, and more. You can build your own Minifigure, fill a bag with all of the pieces you need, or buy some extra spaceships for your fleet. We also have a selection of brand new as well as retired sealed LEGO sets.
My favorite parts are probably our Art Walls. Several walls in the store are dedicated to LEGO artwork. Both the artwork of the LEGO Poster Subscription Service as well as some of my favorite artwork that LEGO has issued officially.
Stop by the Warminster Brick Shop at 1099 Mearns Road in Warminster Pennsylvania and give us a like on Facebook to see new products as they hit the shelves. Our goal is to have new items available in-store every time you visit us.
Every month, Bricks on the Dollar has given away a sealed vintage set. It’s been going for a while. I don’t even remember when I started this but it must be approaching a full year by now.
Anyway, this time it isn’t a set. It’s a couple of posters. No, not my posters.
Tom Whalen is a graphic designer who has produced many fantastic commissions, including a few for The LEGO Group directly. Two of his newest pieces were given away at San Diego Comic Con 2017. I snagged a bunch (semi-accidentally) on eBay and I am giving away one of each this month. They are 18″x24″ and are printed on a very thick stock, similar to a school project poster board. Can you tell I am not in the paper industry?
They are not signed or anything like that, but I happen to think they are very cool. I have spoken to Tom before about my AFOL Subscription Poster Service and while he cannot get involved himself because of his official License to TLG, he is supportive of the project. I sent him an email to let him know I am collecting his newest work and giving them away to my subscribers.
Hopefully you like what you see. I’ll know by how many signups there are, but let me know if you think giving away other items like this is worthwhile or if I should stick to the vintage sets. Or maybe a different option.
