Re: October 2016 LEGO Brand Retail Store Calendar

It looks like the cat from Itchy & Scratchy to me. Maybe that's even what they were going for.

Re: May the 4th LEGO Star Wars Day - Sales & Promotions

I don't see any shipping charges when I add Bricks and Pieces to my order of sets that meets the $75 threshold. However, I don't think that bricks and pieces counts toward the order threshold.

Re: LEGO Jedi High Council Approaching 10 000 Supporters on

Lego could choose to sell all the Jedi in a single set, or they could choose to scatter them through many. I wonder which route they will choose.

These figures looks nice, but the packs are too expensive for me. I don't have a modern console to play the games, and no desire to get one. I wish they'd release a CMF series with these figures.

Cool car but not of fan of Batman's torso printing. The bat logo logo seems too large.

This is an amazing creation that looks much better than the Lego version. It's too bad we'll never be able to buy it.

Wow these look really bad. Does lego feel it's market share is too small, and wants to get into the cheap action figure market as well?

That part in black came with the Teslo mixel. I haven't really found a use for the part yet, what can be built with it?

Re: Target Canada In Store Clearance

I agree less competition is bad for prices, and I'll miss being able to shop at Target. On the news front I do hope that other businesses take note of the things that Target did poorly. Number 1 being not having a functional website. Number 2 I also feel that they could have offered more frequent sa...

Re: how would you sell a duplicate bigfig

Thanks for all your replies. I had thought that people buying from sites like bricklink usually like to buy more than a single item, so selling only one thing would be hard. I'll just have to give it a go and give a good price to make it attractive. I didn't know about brickowl before, and I look fo...

how would you sell a duplicate bigfig

I'm planning on getting all the 2015 Marvel sets. I'll get a bunch of duplicate figures but I'm OK with that because I can always swap pieces to change them or use the pieces for other figs. It's the duplicate bigfig Hulk that I don't really want. How would you sell it? I think my options are to sel...

Re: LEGO Store Calendar, Dec. 2014 (US/CA)

Anybody know if double VIP or triple VIP points will be happening on Brick Friday weekend? All of October was double VIP plus free holiday set. I was hoping for a similar deal in November, as I'd like to get another large set and the 2nd holiday set.

Re: Double VIP Points: October 2014 LEGO Promotion

Triple VIP points are better than double VIP points, and the 2nd holiday set will be free if you wait. The downside is you have to wait and won't get your sets until sometime in December. That's OK if you're like me and have a closet of unopened sets though.
