Re: [USA] Toys R Us: Save $10 on $50 Purchase 4/8 - 4/14

I submitted my order on Sunday 4/8 @9am Pacific and just received (to my great delight) my shipping confirmation!! :) Seems like some orders are coming in, although keep in mind also that I only ever made the one.

[US] LEGO Store (B&M) Sales

As far as I can tell, this hasn't been posted on TNB yet. I first heard about this from BrickSet (http://www.bricksetforum.com/discussion/4129/us-lego-bm-sale" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;), and just came back from my local store (Mission Viejo, CA) and can report that the following...

Re: Lego Store March 15 Shamrock Deal?

I happened to be at the mall too, but didn't have much time to search for the Shamrock because I had to get to work and the staff wouldn't help out or even point me in the right direction to find it. I made two rounds around the store to no avail and left empty handed. I was ready to pick a set (Win...

Need to put in my vote before I forget and the voting closes. :P I find it awkward to vote for myself even though that's in the rules, so my 3 votes will go to others: soliton's Tantive IV : 2 points I absolutely adore this.

Re: [CONTEST] Micro Build Tournament 2011

Just a question about windows: Do window frames + the piece inside them count as 2 pieces or 1 piece? I'm cutting it close to the 200 mark with my submission and need every piece I can get :D I presumed that the combo counts as 2 pieces for my entry, but I'll let a mod/admin make the official call....

Hey folks, Here is my entry based on 10217 Diagon Alley. http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2397/5703662219_4d25fdac47.jpg http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2605/5703664845_480c15ce0c.jpg It took me awhile to edit these 3 down to 200 pieces, but rest assured that 200 pieces is all I used. ;) The piece coun...

Re: May 2011 sets now at Lego Stores

Thanks should go to Tazman! :)

I'm quite excited for this set. I am glad now that I've waited on the pictures of it before making another huge purchase so I can get this when it is released with a clear conscience. :P

Love the sand blue and light yellow (I think?) elements.

Re: May 2011 sets now at Lego Stores

I was just about to post the exact same question. I cannot find pics of the pet shop anywhere and the speculation and mystery are intriguing. Take a picture of the box for all of us here. Rumors on Eurobricks.com are that the set will be released May 10th. Nonetheless, I would absolutely love to se...

Re: [USA] Toysrus All LEGO BOGO 50% April 17 - 23

You should try to get there soon.

I went in the morning (shortly after store opening) by myself and then again later in the afternoon with my kids, and by the afternoon, the S4 minifigs had almost cleared out and all that was left of the PotC selection were the two most expensive sets.

Re: [USA] Toysrus All LEGO BOGO 50% April 17 - 23

Keep in mind that this applies to Series 4 minifigures as well. And, if the online info on TRU.com is to be believed, it would seem that in addition to the Pirates of the Caribbean sets, some B&M TRU should also have new summer sets from Alien Conquest, Kingdoms, City (Harbor) and also the City of A...

Re: POTC sets on tru.com

We're just a couple days from one of the advertised release dates (4/16 as stated in the May LEGO Store Calendar... the original release date was stated as "May'), so with some luck maybe we'll get some @ B&M stores by the end of this weekend and maybe even get a sale to go along with it. :)

I dropped by my local Target and found additional items on sale. Prices are rounded up and from memory, so don't shoot me if I'm wrong. :P Hogwart's Castle (4842) - $115 (though there've been better prices elsewhere, like amazon.com) Hogwart's Express (4841) - $72 The Burrow (4840) - $53 Hagrid's Hu...

Re: [USA] TRU 25-30% off Lego

On that note, I'm fairly certain there were no Ambush in Cairo sets at my closest store in San Jose. I looked carefully in the licensed themes aisle. Maybe you east coasters have more of them? Yeah, I am thinking the same thing, I called 3 of the 4 in the Sacramento area and the 3rd store I called ...
