The last 3( 1 of 20 pieces) rescues  have yielded 6 SW minifigs, a friends legs , a one arm workperson torso, a chima bird(minus headcover) with a Jek-1 transparent arm, and some city guys. A red motorbike body and a trike body( possibly a SW hoverbike ) .some old pieces -wheels with metal axle and city wheels and 2 bigs that make a bike and a spring shock

Like the UK lego masters eliminating the kids , Aussie version is laying waste to the women, the builds are amazing and I wouldn't be confident in entering as it uses every scope of building ,technic ,colour, storytelling, parts usage ,  I'm blown away by the builds

The brickset secret Santa is open for sign up but is closed 4th Nov, I do say I'm not doing it next year but it's a great way to get a present from someone who wants to give you lego other than yourself, and the fuzzy feeling of giving and then seeing all the joy as others open and show off the goodness

Poly bags ,nothing major ,they had a haunted house on display with a stuntz set and the friends roller disco ,I wound  the haunted house and the drop is cool the stuntz needed a bigger table to get speed and I know the disco set but as much as I wanted to physically explore it I resisted

LEGO offering some world cup merchandise while managing not to mention the world cup. Presume it's a licensing issue, although I can also imagine them not wishing to be associated with the Qatar human-rights-abuse-fest.

Inspired by 3 stickers pieces of the Porsche Spider 75910 and the atrocious state the pieces were in should have trounced the inspiration but stubborn me bulled on, maybe 15 parts missing but big bits -it's reminding me of a carS.O.S. It'll never be finished but I won't be dipping into the audi of which I found the front grille

I retrieved 2 suitcases of lego , there was an.other brand of a shuttle ,but the lot I'm interested in has Star wars,  city , I hope weasleys burrow , I see maybe 15 figs. The machine took a lot too , this time I had 2 more helping and it took a while. There's a lot of yellow a I'm hoping it's the highrise crane. There were 2 sails and a tent material .I got a jabba and I think his barge, there's a pirate ship and a city airport and lots of red so must be a fire station. I put photos on the WhatsApp but I'll post here when I get time to clean and attempt to rebuid

The Lego Life Christmas edition magazine came in addressed to my Daughter , there's instructions for a baby polar bear 29 pieces -all white but common enough. There's two on the 2nd page a mom and teenager beat but probably easy enough to make as there's no instructions
