Re: Is anyone collecting the Harry Potter blind bag series?

Never thought about Costco selling these. Unfortunately Costco US doesn't sell them.

Re: The End of Toys R Us - Is This The End of Toys?

For any stores to survive, you need good customer service. Plus TRU was known to add their 20% tax to lego products. They are like the blockbusters of toys. They didn't keep up with e-commerce and they were a pain to price match.

I'm going to miss them as I grew up going to TRU as a kid in the 80s.

Re: Lego UCS Millennium Falcon 2017

Went to the store last week to see if they had any available. I was curious about the size of the box. They had none. Not only none, but none in the near future. You have to be on a waiting list. It's 80 people deep at my store. Upon phone call, you have 24 hours to pick it up. wow.

It's greed. No reason to layoff people if it's still profitable.

Re: Official Press Release: LEGO 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon

There shouldn't be a sticker for that price tag.

The dilemma is where to put this with the original one. :-D

My Walmart has it on the aisle in the toy section not to be confused with the lego aisle.

Re: Official Press Release: 75144 UCS LEGO Star Wars Snowspe

Why is the guy promoting stickers like it's the best thing since slice bread? The window should've been printed. Could you imagine putting stickers on the MF cockpit window? The horror. There should be a rule where all UCS sets have printed artwork.

Just saw them at Target and TRU. $5 at TRU. That hurts. I'll probably get them at the lego store when they have it.

Re: 2017 LEGO Star Wars Images: 75173 Luke's Landspeeder, 75

Must be running out of ideas. We just had skiff not too long ago. Probably cost more than the last sets. Maybe $25-$35.
