Billund exclusives

Heading to Billund in March - other than the airport and the Tree of Creativity, are there any other exclusive sets/minigs that have any connection back to Billund or The Lego House? Want to bring stuff back for my friends but not sure how much room I'll have!

How long before walmart.com gets modulars?

I've been waiting for walmart.com to get the Brick Bank set as I've got a gift card there I can use for it. I really thought it may be posted by now since they have the other available modulars online. Any idea how long it takes before they typically get them?

Re: 2016 LEGO Modular Building Set

Any idea how long it takes a retailer like WalMart to get a set like this? I have a $150 giftcard burning a hole in my pocket and would love to use it for this in January, but I don;t know how long it takes for these to become available.

Thanks so much for this! Is there a program to which I could download this to provide a parts list and the like?

Looking for someone to design a mosaic

For several years now I've been wanting to make a large Lego logo mosaic (thinking like 4x4, or 192 studs by 192 studs). I've failed miserably at trying to come up with a design for it. Pic to Brick is WAY outside my comfort level from a technical standpoint, and I haven't found anything else usable...

Lego mosaic software

I'm hoping to build an approximately 4 foot by 4 foot mosaic of the Lego logo. I've been looking for a solid, easy-to-use mosaic-creating software but have had no luck. PicToBrick looks like it would be good, but the tutorial is really poor and I have had a difficult (actually impossible) time worki...

Re: Will 10235 Winter Village Market go 1/2 off?

Welp, that answers that - still full price. Between this and no breaks anywhere on UCS sets during the holidays, I'm kinda ready to move on to something else. It was a nice ride while it lasted, Lego.

Re: Will 10235 Winter Village Market go 1/2 off?

I hope so, but I highly doubt it. If they do it, they'll break their own words. On the other hand, 10235 is only sold at S@H and many people don't think 10235 is a very interesting set. I guess they have to find a way to sell this set out. So 10235 wasn't available at Lego brand stores? We don't ha...

Will 10235 Winter Village Market go 1/2 off?

I believe in year's past Lego brand stores have marked down their holiday sets to around 50% post-Christmas. However, with Lego now iron-fisting pricing on any exclusives,you think the holiday sets be on sale when stores open tomorrow (Thursday)?

How often does Lego do 3X VIP points?

I'm looking to purchase the large Sydney Opera House set, and remember that Lego did 3X VIP points a few weeks back. I'm in no rush to get the set, so I'd like to hold out until the promotion runs again. Is this something they only do around the holidays, or is there any other time of year they typi...

Re: May the 4th be with you (2013)

If you're shooting for this and couldn't get it from Lego.com or TRU, start calling Lego stores. You won't get free shipping, but I called two stores and they said they had "tons" of them and will ship. They're including the mini fig and poster too. Shipping was around $11, but well worth it for the...

Least crowded time at Lego KidsFest?

The KidsFest is finally coming to our area, and I'm trying to get a handle on what session might be the least crowded. Any insights on the best time to go would be much appreciated - thanks in advance!

Re: [USA] Walmart Clearance Sale

I hit a number of WM's in the Louisville KY area tonight, and was blown away - not by the deals, but by what seemed like the huge number of $75+ sets that had been tampered with. Someone uneducated never would have caught it, but it was incredibly easy to see how the seals had been removed and repla...

Could K Mart's website POSSIBLY suck more than it does? For the life of me I can't figure out how to check in-store inventory.

Re: [USA] Target Sale November 18-21

THAT was a half hour ordeal, but with a tremendous amount of effort it worked well! I'd scouted these at my local Target last night so I knew I was in business. When I took them to the register, they scanned at like $85 and change. I pointed out the ad to the cashier, who called over a front-end per...

Re: [USA] Wal-Mart 60% off LEGO City The Mine Set

Just scored two at a local Wal Mart. Go to the ones in your area where Legos never sell and you'll be in good shape. Marked $99 with a $10 discount on the shelf - rang up at $39.99. Thanks for the screw up Wally - have some now with Monster Fighters after Halloween!
