Re: Giveaway: LEGO Friends Brickmaster & Ultimate Sticker Co

According to my kids, Emma is the coolest, based on her hair and clothing.. "Because she just looks cool dad" (from my 7 year old) As far as the favorite set, I queried the kids as well. My oldest picked 3184 - adventure camper because she had a similar camper from City, and it was great fun as she ...

Re: Zulily Sale - LEGO Brickmaster, Storage, Clothes

Thanks for the info! But, wow, I had no idea Zulilly made you sign in or sign up before even allowing you to look at the site. That's like walking up to a storefront and having the owner run out, lock the door behind him and say "You can only come in if you tell me your name and home address." Does...

Re: LEGO 2013 Modular Building (10232 Palace Cinema)

Out of curiosity, would you recommend the Grand Emporium or Pet Shop next? The Grand Emporium was 2010, whereas the Pet Shop is 2011. I would recommend the Grand Emporium for the same reason, you have a better chance before it is discontinued. Here's a list from Brickset that shows them all and the...

Re: [USA] Walmart Clearance Sale

I came across my first set at Target that had a upc from a more expensive set taped to the bottom. When I scaned it to find the price the description came up as something else. I then looked at the upc and noticed the tape. :sad: The weird thing is, I didn't clearly see any UPC tampering, maybe I s...

I found 2 bank sets for 30% off, and 1 Dump Truck (4434) at the newer Target in Fremont, CA (off auto mall).
I bought the dump truck, an left the 2 bank sets. B1G1 50% off sale as well.

Re: [US/CA] LEGOShop 2013 Galaxy Squad, City, Creator, Techn

I saw them showing up on TRU's site too. I stopped in the store and they had some of the new sets, but not a good selection, and no more than 1 price point, so could not use the B1G1 50% sale.

Re: Ebay and Lego Question

I was going to say something similar. I would figure out with comparisons of bricklink and ebay what you could expect in terms of returns. I would also look to see what moves/sells quickly, versus what hangs out unsold. If you're looking to off some just to regroup your costs, I would sell the rarer...

Re: Lego Trains

The 9V sets are not compatible with the new sets. But the Emerald Night and Red train are compatible with each other. There is also a new orange training shipping near the first of the year. (It's already on the lego site)

Re: [USA] Toys R Us Buy 2 Get 3rd Free 9/16-9/22

Hmm.. My store pickup orderer with pre-jacked up prices got cancelled. Suppose I'll have to call tomorrow, but not happy about that. Anyone have any a similar experience?
