LEGO Nostalgia

Some pretty amazing friends got me this:

Not official, it's a custom job that's a local used and trade store picked up. If you don't instantly recognize them, in the front row is Giles, Buffy, and Angel. Behind them Oz and Xander, and finally, Cordelia, Spike and Willow. They are painted, and the detail is amazing:

I'm tempted to go by the store and see if anyone knows where it came from. Was this a gift disposed in an ugly breakup or something? Anyway, it's mine now.

I got my package from Lego with all the replacement pieces. It came quicker than I thought it would. They also threw in a couple of Ninjago minifig keychains, which was a nice surprise.

All in all it’s rather impressive that over the years and numerous sets I’ve bought I’ve never had a missing piece before. It must happen often enough for them to have this system in place, but it’s also very good customer service.

Lego customer support is some of the best I've ever experienced. Multiple times.

Finally building the UCS snow speeder. Very relaxing and intricate build.
