Re: 1400 Employees will be Laid Off - LEGO Group Revenue Dec

LEGO "investors" are starting to drop like flies. I hope you're right about this. It really drove me crazy when I finally had enough money to get a set I'd had to save up some for and then, BANG! Every. Single. One. GONE! Sometimes OVERNIGHT! Took me a little while to notice there was a pattern to ...

Re: 1400 Employees will be Laid Off - LEGO Group Revenue Dec

I think they need to do more to convince people their product is worth buying for kids and try to reduce the cost of their sets. I love Lego, always have, but it's gotten a lot more expensive than it used to be.

Looks like another group of winners. Now, if they'd just make it easier to order boxes.

Are you still looking for this? I've got to dig through storage and double check but I'm fairly sure I've got an extra one.

So does anyone know of a similar place to find them at these prices in the East? All the stores I've been in have them at near full price.

Lego really shouldn't have used Chinese factories. They pretty much guaranteed knockoffs would be produced by the bucket.

Re: LEGO Global Sales Grew 10% - First Half of 2016

Of course sales are flat here. Lego costs a lot and many Americans are struggling to pay their bills. Plus the average parent just isn't buying Legos for their kids.

Brick & Blue posts truth. Closest Toys R Us to me is about an hour and a half drive away too. Are they doing this promotion on their website too?

Re: San Diego Opening a 2nd LEGO Store

I wish they'd open a Lego store in Savannah or Augusta here in Georgia. We've got two in Atlanta but Atlanta isn't exactly an easy city to drive to or in. Where I live, it's about 4.5 hours round trip if you drive straight in and out. Why couldn't one of those Lego stores have been set up in the Sou...

Mr. T! Okay, Lego, now give me the rest of the A-Team. Hannibal, Face Man, and Murdock need to be minifigged! Also, if you're going to do Knight Rider, how about a real set with a KITT build worthy of Lego?
