That UCS Falcon set isn't happening so don't get your hopes up. It was scrapped.

Re: Walmart 10695 classic creative building box $20

These things are a Bricklinkers wet dream so if you see it buy it. It won't be there in the morning because everyone I know is buying the whole end-cap at one time for them. Sorry, just the reality.

I've also been told by several Walmarts that this was a one time buy.

Re: You guys need to see this! A blast from the past

By law they MUST have a way for people to enter without having to spend money and I'm not sure applying for a credit card qualifies. Just my thoughts.

Re: Availablity Update for LEGO Ideas Exo-Suit & Research In

Lest we also forget Lego pays out a percentage of every set to the winners and they may just be cutting those payouts short since they obviously appear to be cranking out Ideas (still the dumbest name) sets like rabbits.

Re: Availablity Update for LEGO Ideas Exo-Suit & Research In

Here's my thoughts on the back-orders and why they had them when you would think it should've just gone to "sold out" right away. I'm convinced for any number of reasons that this is the process that occurred assuming that the set is indeed a One And Done production run. - Set goes on sale 12:01am E...

Re: 2014 January LEGO Hobbit Sets

Am I the only one laughing my a$$ off that they're including the exact same Azog as the one that was at Comic-con?? Now anyone holding one of the CC versions has to hope that packaging is worth $1200 without the figure. :lol:

Re: No Discounts Policy on LEGO Exclusives & Hard to Find It

I was told this policy was in direct response to Amazon, Walmart, and other who felt they were being undercut by Lego directly especially when Lego has now cut off some of the big box retailers from the exclusives all together. I forget if the article above mentions it but this policy applies to emp...

Re: LEGO 2014 Ninjago Sets?

These are very confusing Lego times, let's hope their reversal back to Ninjago doesn't lead to half-baked crappy sets.

Oh and Dareth I say, am I the only one praying for a brown ninja??

After being hung up twice, left on hold for 20 minutes 'while they check with a supervisor' twice, and passed off to the wrong department once; I finally got an operator who honored the deal on some Death Stars only to have her computer "act up" which she claimed prevented her from doing any additio...

Re: Kmart online clearance!

Not sure if it's been stated yet but here's how their system really works. When their "on hand" quantity hits 2, their online system will automatically kick in and show "out of stock". This is their built in safety net to prevent overselling items online if a store doesn't have correct on-hands for ...

While I'm as excited as the next person (or possible even more), I also realize this may mean excessive repetition with the Falcons, Slaves, Speeders, Starfighters, and countless CW ships and figures that OT people like me have no idea who or what they are.

Re: LEGO Friends 2012 Press Release

I realize I may be in the minority here, but this is my 2 cents on these things. Despite their "interchangeability" with REAL minifigs, I can't help wondering when the heck Lego will recognize that girls ACTUALLY LIKE girl minifigs and they don't have to make these crappy contrived versions. Let's a...

Re: [USA]50% off Advent at LEGOLAND CA

It seems like the same as retail stores. Based on what I bought it was $28 and that's in line with retail stores I buy from.
