Geek Toy Coming!


(Click to enlarge)

Every now and then I scour eBay for a sign of the Lego(tm) Mars Explorer pictured above.  When I happen to find them, they are often only used, or outrageously priced, or coming from either sellers outside the US (causing a large price), etc.

I finally found one this morning for a price I could deal with, new in the box, and from a seller with a good feedback rating.  So, on a whim, I bought it.

858 pieces.  Multiple moving gears.  Push-button deployment of the solar panels.

Ahhh, sweet nerd-vana.

All of which reminds me that I need to get my Lego Millenium Falcon out of a box, and take it in to my office, where all of my truly geeky stuff gets displayed.

Hey, even I think that's cool, and I am so far from geekdom it isn't funny!

I'm so disappointed the the Falcon isn't hanging in your office yet. You actually moved it from Adrian to Dexter instead of across the street?

Hey mister lego man, check this out. I stumbled upon it and thought of you.
