Re: LEGO Star Wars Day May the 4th Promo Starts Now (North A

Actually, the Y-Wing and buildable Scarif Stormtrooper have been on my wishlist for a while. And together they're enough to get the R2-D2. I'm reasonably satisfied... for a change.

Re: LEGO Ideas 21303 Set: Wall-E Disney Pixar

I'm really happy this set got the green light. I remember when it was getting attention on Cuusoo and people were saying that it wouldn't have a chance because too much time had passed since the movie. Thankfully, BTTF and Ghostbusters have proven that customers will put their money where their nost...

Re: *NEW* Darth Vader's Sith Starfighter

Got kind of excited when I first glanced at the picture. Looks great and the box detail is pro-level work. I especially like the Boba Fett box art. Is that from a previous Lego packaging, because it doesn't look familiar?

Re: 10221 LEGO Star Wars Super Star Destroyer Destroyed!

My son did something similar with my Millennium Falcon when he was 3. It had been completed not ten minutes earlier. A couple of technic beams did split. Unfortunately, no cool video footage exists to document the event. It was an amazing explosion and I'm sure it would have looked great in slo-mo r...

Re: Official Press Release: #10247 Ferris Wheel LEGO Creator

The prices didn't surprise me until I looked at the specs more closely and realized it doesn't include any power functions parts.

While I like the figure, I still have to cringe at anything that reminds me of that terrible movie. I'm grateful the Ultimate Spiderman cartoon is so much better.

Re: Results of Second Lego Ideas Review!

I'd say that WALL-E would be the set I'd have to get, as it will certainly make my kids very happy. By the time they watched the movie on DVD for the first time and it became a family favorite all the merchandising for the movie was long gone.

Re: LEGO 76042 The SHIELD Helicarrier Official Press Release

This is very impressive. Not sure I find the minifigs to be necessary, as they have the new trophyfigs in strong supply with this and their scale matches the set. But minifigs seem to be necessary to keep folks happy when a big pricetag is involved. What I find interesting in the description is the ...

Re: [USA] ToysRUs LEGO Weekly Deals from January 11-17

I can never stop saying enough good things about the recent Duplo train sets. I bought set #5609 for my kids about 5 years ago, and they're still playing with it as of yesterday. Even my wife will agree it is the best money we have ever spent on a toy. Despite knowing they're getting to the age wher...

Re: [US] 20% off 3 sets (max $50 discount) at yoyo.com

I was starting to get excited about this promotion. After all, they ship internationally... except when they don't.

Seems I can't catch a break lately on getting an AT-AT under the tree for anywhere near the US MSRP.

It still amazes me that after so many years of the Winter Village and recently a theme set in the arctic we can't buy white baseplates. Seems like a really simple item that would se...

Looks like all of the Advent calendars are now OOS. And the Friends calendar now has the typical disclaimer exempting it from discounts. The only Lego Advent calendars that show up now are from Marketplace sellers at jacked up prices. Does anyone know a trick to weed out the Marketplace vendors from...

Re: 2015 January LEGO Elves Set Pictures 41071 41072 41073 4

I have to admit that these look better than I expected when I heard that an Elves product line was in the works. Colors are great. I just hope trees will have more foliage. So many treehouse type sets have thick trunks topped with almost no leaves. Need more like the tree in the MMV. Also good to se...
