Re: LEGO Bricktober 2018 Minifigure Packs Revealed

Something to consider with Barnes & Noble - they have a rewards program that costs $25 per year. This program gives a 10% discount on everything - and according to the salesperson I spoke to this includes LEGO products (and café items!) Assuming one *only* buys LEGO sets, you really have to plan on ...

Re: LEGO Bricktober 2018 Minifigure Packs Revealed

Does anyone have any further word on when these might be offered at Barnes & Noble in the US? I see them popping up on eBay already - at ridiculous prices.

I thought the limit of 5 was odd, as it's been 32 for the last few non-licensed series. Thanks for the update!

Re: LEGO 71018 Collectable Minifigures Series 17 Official Pr

So Series 17 is available today, but with a limit of 5 per customer? (in US anyway) I fail to understand the logic behind this - and I'm not happy about it!

Re: LEGO Batman Movie and Knight Rider Dimensions Packs (712

Just searched again on LEGO's site and all 3 of these products now appear - with a generic image so far.

Re: LEGO Batman Movie and Knight Rider Dimensions Packs (712

It's now release day, and so far 71264 LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack is not available nor does it even appear on LEGO's website. Amazon shows it as out of stock as well. (I pre-ordered and Amazon could tell me nothing.) I chatted with a LEGO rep online and they stated that it should be on the website...

Re: Bricks - Issue #16 Now Released

Does anyone carry Bricks in the US? (or for that matter, Blocks as well?) The shipping to US nearly doubles the cost of already pricey publications.

Series 15 is now showing on the US website, saying "Coming Soon on Feb 01 2016". I think I'll be headed to my local LEGO shop on Monday (also to use the FREE Mini Parrot coupon from the calendar!)

Re: 2016 New Product Launch & LEGO Promotions

The VIP promotions page does list 50 extra VIP points on the 21302 Big Bang Theory set from January 1-31, 2016, but no mention of double VIP points for anything.

Re: 2016 New Product Launch & LEGO Promotions

Ack - more info on the Double VIP Points promotion please! I'm sure many of us are holding off on purchases (Ghostbusters HQ anyone?) waiting to see what this is! I find no other reference to it but here.

It appears to be an issue with Verizon FIOS DNS servers in my area, as I'm able to access LEGO.com from a VPN. Hmmm...

lego.com down?

Is it down for everyone or just me? I'm getting DNS errors, i.e. the domain is not found. Very odd.

Re: LEGO Monsters Series 14 Minifigures - Now Sold Out

I was just noting it. Some manufacturer sites leave all reviews good or bad - it can serve to demonstrate their integrity (or at least perception thereof.) Many do indeed remove bad reviews, and I don't fault them for it, but it can lead to a perception of lack of straightforwardness. Again, simply ...

Re: LEGO Monsters Series 14 Minifigures - Now Sold Out

I've been checking the LEGO S@H page for these regularly (still marked SOLD OUT as of today) and I found something interesting. It seems LEGO removed all of the negative reviews. There *had* been a bunch of 1-star ratings based on the sold-out status, but they are now magically gone. I guess I shoul...
