Re: Which train is best? Maersk or 10205

If there's no instructions and no box for the 10205, I wouldn't make the trade. You probably have or can easily get hold of most of the parts for the train yourself (all black), and make cheaper substitutions when possible for non-visible parts; it looks like a pretty easy set to piece together via ...

Re: Barnes and noble

If you're a member using a coupon, remember that you get the maximum savings by selecting sets that differ slightly in price. First the coupon knocks down the highest-price item by 20%, then the BOGO takes 50% off whichever item is now lower. Then your membership takes 10% off of the total. In theor...

Re: Legoland California Help

Legoland has a lot of shops, but many are just glorified kiosks with sets from one or two themes. It's worth poking your nose in at most of them, though, because occasionally you'll find a retired set that's not stocked in the main shop or notice a blowout deal on something small that you might not ...

Isn't one of the 30% off Galaxy Squad sets a TRU exclusive, too? The Star Slicer?

Re: Lord Of The Ring Sets that will Stop Being Made in June

Very few licensed sets I wouldn't regret not buying at 55% off. I think you can still make money on PoP at those prices.

Only excludes Technic and Chima! Well, and anything else they might choose to mark a penny off their 'list price'.

Ninjago excluded, so Temple of Light wouldn't work anyway. My guess is since it's TRU you've got to get it to $75 on the dot.

Re: Legoland California Help

It's easy to do Legoland in a day, especially when you're not traveling with a kid who wants to go on every ride. Most of the attractions are targeted at young children, but not THAT young; a 3-month old won't be allowed on much of anything, so if you and your wife want to do any rides you're going ...

Re: [USA] Kmart.com Additional 50% off Clearance HURRY

Don't give up hope if you find nothing at your local store - I went to two different Kmarts. One had stock on a lot of the sets people are reporting, but not clearanced and not doing the half-off promotion ("maybe next week?"); the other had a few clearanced City, SW Planets and HF sets, including s...

Re: New US LEGO Brand Stores coming to CT, MO, TX and UT

So, with the minifigure sets- how quickly do those sell out? Is it like within minutes and you would have to camp out to get them or just show up within a couple of hours and it's all good? It depends on how many they're allocating per store. I've shown up right at opening time and still gotten a p...

That little robot thingy pictured with Yoda, is that from a new set? Or something they just whipped up for the picture? Possibly from an unreleased Yoda Chronicles set/poly, some kind of holocron archive droid? I was confused at first as to how it could hang together, but I guess there must be a ha...
