To me, it looks a bit like Scratchy from the Simpsons... but I agree, lame for a Werewolf.

Re: [CAN/US] vip invitation for Nov 22

Just my 2 cents - I received an invite to the Sherway store this year. I also had one in 2012 but did not receive one in 2013. Honestly was not expecting an invite, as my LEGO shopping this year has been much, much less than previous years. Certainly less than 2013 when I did not get an invite. Ther...

Re: LEGO Racing Plane - September 2014 Mini Model Build

For anyone that went - did they hand out polybags to take home if you preferred to at your store like they did last month with the Monkey build?

Re: LEGO Monkey - August 2014 Mini Model Build

Interesting, tonight our store (Sherway/Toronto) was trying something different - once you were getting near the front of the line, they'd offer you the polybag to take & go, or you could go in and do the build as usual. Certainly sped things up, as it seems most people opted to take the bag & go. T...

Re: July 2014 LEGO Store Calendar (US/Can)

As far as I know, this is the first time they've really announced a refresh - usually things will change a a little bit from month-to-month, but I am hoping that this July update brings us some interesting pieces. I've noticed a lot of the same old tired stuff from month-to-month. My guess is since ...

Re: July 2014 LEGO Store Calendar (US/Can)

At last the PAB wall is getting refreshed! I'm looking forward to new elements. Years ago the PAB wall was full of unique pieces, but the last few years my local store has mostly carrired standard bricks, plates & 1x1 translucents square or round pieces. Yeah, I'm looking forward to that too. Wonde...

Mastermind.ca - Mars Curiosity Rover $34.99 YMMV

Was in my local (Burlington) Mastermind today. Noticed they had one box of the Mars Curiousity Rover on the shelf...yes, I did buy it as we had missed this when it was on sale. It is listed on their website as "not currently available online" but if you pop in to your local Mastermind, you might get...

Re: July 2014 LEGO Store Calendar (US/Can)

According to the staff at the Sherway (Toronto) LEGO store, the July monthly model build won't be on July 1 in Canada (Canada Day Holiday) a new alternate date will be announced. If anyone hears what it is, please let us all know!

Spotted the Batwing polybags at Burlington ToysRUs - they didn't have a ton left, maybe 20 or so.

Re: Polybag Availability in Canada

Targets in Canada now seem to be stocking polybags at the front cash registers. Myself and others have seen 30187: Fast Car and 30300: The Batman Tumbler for $4.99 each. Locations reported - Ontario (Burlington and Brampton) and British Columbia (Langley).

Re: 30300 The Batman Tumbler polybag

Thanks, I checked the North Burlington Target this afternoon and nothing, but tonight at the Burlington Mall Target they had them along with the Creator Car. Thanks for the heads up! Nice to see this polybags finally appearing at checkouts in Canada.

Where in the store did you find them? I haven't seen any polybags at Canadian Targets yet, at least at the front check outs like they are in the U.S.
