Is there a miniature of clock tower in the advent calendar , I'm hoping Tesco or artnhobby drop the price of whatever stock they've left

Not sure yet. I got a golden egg on a couch today..  I got the last HP advent calendar in Tesco in Mahon point (dumped on a shelf away from the toys). It was down to €14.06. Elf club house came back into stock this evening so that been ordered!

Apparently the world record for an "unmodified" Rubik's Cube solver robot has just been cut almost in half by a Lego robot called Cuboth, built by Elias Frantar. It averages about 1.9 seconds to solve a cube.

The previous record was also held by a Lego robot called Cubestormer 3. It averaged approximately 3.6 seconds.

My 10 yo son can do it in under a minute whereas the only time I ever solved one was when I took off the stickers ...

More dumped lego and a mix of nexo ,SW and technic , a few plates and a few interesting parts , a little oily but twas loved by a kid by the way the stickers were applied and the minifig with no matching part. A volcano explorers set parts too so modern enough to not be throwing away. Another imperial 2x2 round printed tile,  about 10 years time I'll have a Death Star from my bin foraging

You should do some bin-foraged-only mocs, would be cool to see what you come up with!

I have a small ziplock bag of about 20 parts I've found out and about (or around the house when we moved in here!), cleaning them is a job that's on the long finger though...

More dumped lego today ,I rescued a minifig decapitated and driven over, hands still clutch and arms swivel but it's ugly! From the pile -Ninjago, minecraft and nexo knights lost plus side I've another treasure chest(nougat) ,a white helmet and more grey bricks for a castle. 2heads and a minecraft sheep. Also retrieved a small brickhead container -no lid  ,clean enough for where it had been,

75318 ,I mean who dumps a child in a skip, the box is tattered and 3 bags open/made ,minifig at the bottom of the box and 5 unopened bags and instructions ,id never buy this but at this price I'll suffer on.

Eyes are sore but I've made a child on my own. It's sturdy but some attachments don't seem well attached. The eyes are funny and the mouth opens so fun doing a Yoda voice while opening and closing the mouth. It's for sale too if anyone wants!
