Re: Lego Shortage at Canadian Independant Toy Retailers?

Actually that was pretty recently. We had one of the 8420 technic motorcycles from 2005 still at retail around 80$ I think, so we make around 30$ but it was going on ebay around 180$ so the ebayer that came in and tried to clean us out was making a lot more than we were. So we adjusted the price to ...

Re: Lego Shortage at Canadian Independant Toy Retailers?

At Lasting Toys - we keep our prices at retail for years after the item is out - unless of course we find scalpers/ebayers coming and wiping out our stock and making 2-3 times our profit on each item. Then we do adjust the price but tons of our stuff never gets adjusted for years after it's become d...

Re: Friends pets series 5 at TRU

Very odd, we have had those on the shelves for a few months now, with Series 6 arriving in the next week or so. Maybe a USA/Canada difference since I am in Canada?

Re: Lego Shortage at Canadian Independant Toy Retailers?

And customers wonder why it's so hard to find LEGO sometimes. The average retailer can't handle these sorts of disruptions to supply. They need product that will always fill the shelf all the time, so they can sell it and make money. Seems LEGO thinks it's in the best interest to supply the big chai...

They did disappear pretty quick it seems, but I know we still have lots at Lasting Toys here in Mississauga if you want to head out of Toronto.

Re: Simpsons Minifigures @ TRU

It just proves how stupid some employees can be. The boxes are clearly marked MUST NOT BE PUT ON SHELF TILL MAY 1st. And every dealer was sent a warning email from LEGO not to break the embargo date. Not sure what they do, ie ship your next embargo dated product late etc??

Re: June 2014 Lego sets: All Themes

Sorry yes there are three creator for August, missed one in my count. Mostly I was verifying the castle, since I too had hoped it would 'expand' a little. All from dealer lists.

Well actually in USA it is very legal based on past court cases, for a manufacturer to require minimum prices. That is not considered price fixing.

Re: [US] Marvel / Iron Man 3 sets at Amazon

The problem is that as more vendors break LEGO and the licensees restrictions, printed right on the outside of the LEGO cases, they will just refuse to allow LEGO to ship stuff before it's "ON SHELF DATE", which just means everything will get delayed. Violations of this stuff can sometimes end up wi...

Re: [US] Marvel / Iron Man 3 sets at Amazon

What's scary is a big company has no interest in releasing the goods, when the boxes say they should be released. Every LEGO dealers has gotten reminders March 7th is the ON SHELF DATE for Iron Man 3 products. All the big guys thumb there nose at LEGO and don't seem to care.

And actually Target and Amazon have already had it a few weeks. Of course not really the hot time to sell that item, but stock must have come in late I guess.

Re: [US/CA] LEGO Shop Boxing Day Sale 2012

Pretty sure they list any item, that is in stock (or might be mis-counted even) at any location of a LEGO store. Makes for a bigger list, but usually not alot of fun to find the stuff.
