Re: MF Series 11 available yet?

In my experience these past 11 series is that distribution seems to start in the east province's and works its way west. So if they are just available in Ontario now it will be 2-3 weeks minimum before we start to see them out here in the west. This is all speculation but thats how it seems to go ba...

Re: [CAN] Series 8 Now at Walmart

Found 3 boxes at northland Calgary walmart. I got almost everyone I wanted, somehow missed the vampire bat and ended up with an extra footballer/santa/evil robot.

Re: B&N 10% off new LEGO releases and coupon eligble

I ordered the Batwing, Batmobile and Batcave sets. Lego CDN retail for all three sets is roughly $210 with tax. I ordered them in 3 seperate orders, using the 20% coupon on the Batcave, and with tax and shipping it comes to $136.48. All three are scheduled to ship, so hopefully my batcave order will...

Re: Series 6 - Available January 9, 2012

3 picked through boxes at northland Walmart Calgary.
Edit: went through every pack and there was not one extra Roman in the 3 boxes. So got myself a full set and a few extra celts and minotaurs.

Re: Series 6 - Available January 9, 2012

Found 2 boxes on the shelf here at Wal*Mart in Calgary. Did use the "feeling method" on the initial 16 but when going for the rest of the box for additional ones noticed that the bump codes are now more obscure...more "shallow" and in some cases..."smudged"...also like they went through another hea...

Re: [USA] BN Instores Kids Club Coupon 30% off MSRP on LEGO

This topic should be locked, the coupon codes havent worked for months and poor new members like Brownstone get there hopes up, only to have them dashed. In other words, no the coupons dont work on anything good anymore.

Re: Series 6 - Available January 9, 2012

Im guessing(hoping) Wal-mart wont be too far behind in the release. I usually go there and pick up my full set in one shot taking my time to feel the bags out and help anyone else thats looking for particular figures(which has happened at least once every series).

Re: Entire Kingdoms line discontinued?

If you can find it you and like the theme Its a neat set, the usual castle set design with some modular walls. Easy to expand on but looks good on its own,comes with a half decent amount of soldiers for both sides, and the unique horse barding(I love the horse bardings, makes the Knights look really...

Re: Entire Kingdoms line discontinued?

I can understand why, they would just be making a product that would be competing with there LOTR line.
I greet this with mixed emotions, I really dig the kingdoms line, but am a HUGE lotr fan.

Re: LEGO Anonymous

Realize that consumer debt is a bad thing and exercise willpower? Big savings arn't so much savings once you're paying 20% compounded interest on them for a while. :P This exactly.

Re: LEGO Missing Pieces Rant

It went fine, I thought it was really odd as well, my guess is since the sails weren't bagged in the box it must have come out the end? Or I got a returned set unknowingly. All my lego customer service interactions have been smooth. The only exception being I have a severely misprinted tie pilot hel...

Re: LEGO Missing Pieces Rant

Ive had a few missing pieces, but its usually something major for me, like a missing Sail off the Troll Warship a few years back. The others I usually think its missing and later find it under pieces or used it incorrectly in the set earlier on in the build.
