Re: LEGO December Holiday Sale

Interestingly, the family house it back up to $66. The Hobbit game at 19.99. Others seem to match. david Amazon is not selling the Family House, that is a third party seller. You have to look to see who is actually selling it, if it doesn't say, "Ships from and Sold by Amazon.com", then it is a thi...

Re: eBay - Haunted House Deal

Hey look... the sky... it's blue! In other news, Haunted House selling for below retail on eBay is a drop shipping scam using stolen credit cards, it will end up getting the buyer's address banned and cause them all sorts of headaches they get to sort out later. Whee! There are no discounts on exclu...

Re: LEGO Holdiay 2013 Sales (Further Reduced)

Some of these sale prices are crazy... AT-TE for 38% off? For a set about 6 months old, Star Wars, the week of Black Friday?

Nuts I tell you! :)

Re: LEGO Holdiay 2013 Sales (Further Reduced)

Castle didn't go back up, Amazon ran out of stock. If they get more stock back in, it should be the same price, at least until they raise the prices on everything.

Re: [US] TRU BOGO 50% 9/22-28

^ Nothing wrong with your deal, but it really isn't much of one, for all those hoops. Summer Riding Camp is $99 in the LEGO store or online, and you get the VW Camper Van. Chima Chi Temple is $90 or so at Target right now. So a "deal"? Meh, too many hoops to jump through to buy for the price they ar...

Raising prices the same day you have a "sale" should be a crime.

Actually, I think it is in many places, but no one seems to enforce it.

Re: Selling Platform

Quick note, amazon has very high traffic, but is a sellers worst nightmare in regard to thier terms and conditions. You are required to accpt returns even if the item has been opened. You have little to no recourse against bad buyers returning damaged goods. And if you upset more than one buyer(for...

Re: [USA] LEGO Star Wars Malevolence on sale for 24% off

edit: I will say, at the right price point, this set can be fun... I want to say that I paid about $95 for it, and that is an ok price. Not great, but ok. $120 is too much, anything under $90 is fair.

Re: [USA] LEGO Star Wars Malevolence on sale for 24% off

It is an ok build... My son put this together about two months ago, but it sits on the shelf ignored because it just isn't that fun for him to play with.

He much prefers the older 8039, it has a larger interior to play with and is a more interesting ship to him. Expensive now however...

Re: LEGO Cuusoo Fall 2012 Winner Set: Mars Science Laborator

LEGO already has a licence with Disney for Star Wars, what we don't know is what the terms of that are, it might be they can make only a limited number of sets, or limited number of large sets. As for Portals, hogwash, that one is easy. TLG is a privately owned company. Kjeld could pickup the phone ...

Re: Creator Expert LEGO 10234 Sydney Opera House

The arches are all wrong as well, they are curved on the real building, but they have flat sides on this model, then curve too sharply at the top.

The whole thing looks about 80% finished, this needed more time in the oven.

Re: LEGO Cuusoo Fall 2012 Winner Set: Mars Science Laborator

Yea, they are taking WAY too long to do this, I haven't been to the site in awhile, lost interest due to a lack of focus. Frankly, for as much as LEGO likes to promote that they can turn production quickly and are agile to the market, in this case, they are not. Most of the public doesn't even remem...

3%, to be exact... this figure will remain the same, for awhile... once the new owner gets new features and BL 2.0 launched, expect this to rise, it is a crazy low figure quite frankly.

Re: BrickLink sold

the suggestion below does not work for sets sold on bricklink - no way you can predetermine shipping costs due to size. also some post offices determine rates based on volume not weight (like canadapost) so you have to know ahead of time your package and box sizes, which is not possible or reasonab...
