Re: JABBA PALACE - LEGO TO STOP PRODUCTION

LEGO only planned to sell Jabba's Palace until the end of 2013 anyways. So they aren't doing anything they weren't already planning doing already.

Re: 2012 LEGO Super Heroes DK (January)

That's funny because I called the shop at home people yesterday to inquire about it and they told me that they didn't see it online anymore either.

Re: 2012 LEGO Super Heroes DK (January)

Lego pulled the Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape from the website. My gut tells me they might not be selling it anymore.

Re: How long before Lego sets are discontinued?

AT-AT Walker is discontinued along with 99% of all red boxed Ninjago, 99% of Kingdoms, all of Pharoah's Quest, most of the 2011 Cars, some recent Star Wars sets such as Mace Windu's Starfighter, some older Star Wars, all of Toy Story, and some Alien Conquest. Plus a bunch of City is discontinued. Oh...

Re: How to determine if a set is retired?

Easy answer, ask a Lego employee in the month of Dec. They have a 3 page list of things getting the boot. Some of the sets are even 2011 sets.

Re: Washing used Lego

just use your regular detergent. Any washer should do. Just don't use hot water. Use gentle cycle if you want.

Re: [Review] 10221 Super Star Destroyer

Correction: Module 1 did not take 4.5 hours. Module 1 took 2.5 hours to complete. Modules 1 and 2 together took 4.5 hours to do.

Side note: The plaque with the information did not have any typos like Lego suggested some might have.

[Review] 10221 Super Star Destroyer

Indexed Ok so I am going to make this as short as possible but considering the material it might be impossible to do. I am sorry that some of the pictures are blurry or bright. My camera is not so great at taking closeup shots most of the time. So here goes. Set # 10221 Ultimate Collector Series Su...

Re: Magnets?

Since Hasbro has the license on Star Wars action figures, they threw a fit to Lucas about the LEGO magnets being action figures and not primarily used for magnets. LEGO then got the word from Lucas that they need to make it to where the figs don't come off the magnets anymore. Since all the magnets ...

Re: Magnets?

The old magnet sets are able to be used as a useable minifig. All new magnets are glued together and are not able to be used as a minifig unless you like having figures with messed up legs. The glue they use fuses the magnet and minifigs together.

Re: New to SW, what to get?

Don't be surprised if the x-wing goes clearance this year. Which means that a LEGO store will slash the price to get it out of their store. They do that to their discontinued sets all the time. The LEGO store is the best place to shop. Don't count on TRU having a whole lot of buy one get one half on...

Re: Which Star Wars Sets are going to be Discountinued soon?

You can figure that if a set has had at least a two year run that it will be discontinued sometime within the next year. LEGO will most likely want something to take its place before it is clearanced out.
