Re: Bricks N Pieces alternative to Pick A Brick online order

BEWARE! I once thought I was ordering Bigfig parts (arms) and parts for a dragon (individual parts). They showed as individual parts but after I placed my order somehow this registers (at least in my situation) as an order for the WHOLE dragon! I noticed 2x days later that my order was far more exp...

Re: UEFA Euro 2016 Champions LEGO Team German Soccer Series

With the Olympic figures, there were different sports/accessories which made the individual figures distinct and interesting. I can't imagine what they could do with soccer players that would differentiate the figures enough to make them interesting on their own. I suppose if the figures were to re...

Re: NEW Pick a Model Experience at your local LEGO Brand Sto

I saw this last week at Arden Fair. Only for the less sophisticated buyer who doesn't figure out you could spend $5 for about 50 pieces, or $9 for enough pieces in a pick-a-brick cup to make several copies of the model. Sadly the store employees have been directed to stop this if they see it happen...

Sorry. I've never heard of Food4LEss.
Kroger owns Food4Less. They are in the Midwest and California.

What do you mean by "affiliate stores"? Is that an imprint that Korger owns, but is not called a Kroger like a City Market or King Soopers?

Re: Target winter clearance

I'm hoping they take the hint about the 15% off clearance. Tons of Lego left around here, even at 30% now. It looks like trying to do the 15% on Lego when everything else was 30%-50% has just left our local Target with a bunch of Lego while most of the other toys sold quickly at the higher discount.

Re: Meijer 2 day sale

Kroger coupons (and many from the Kroger sub-brands) have started to have specific Lego restrictions. I would imagine that Meijer will follow suit shortly.

Re: Barnes & Nobles 2014 LEGO Black Friday Sale

We had a manager we know use the coupon on our sets at one of our stores. Not sure if it was an override or what.

I know that they were having some issues early on Friday with the promo in their system due to Lego's demands that certain sets be excluded.

Re: Black Friday Walmart 2014

Looks like it was 24 System and 16 Duplo per store. Nearly all stores let people load up their carts well before 6. All were gone right away.

Yes.

The only things that Walmart will limit are the items that yo have to stand in line for. (TVs, iPad, etc..)

Re: Wal-Mart USA Pre-Black Friday LEGO Deals Start Today

Price match while you can at Target and TRU. If Target tries to give you crap about not matching BF ads, point out the obvious "PRE-" in Walmart's sale. It is not BF, it is PRE-BF. Everyone's TRU is different, so I hope you're on good terms with the managers. It always helps me! Make sure everybody...

That is the one set I saw a few places along with the Superman set. Maybe it is not so popular with the Ebay/CL group.

Unless you live in an area where LEGO is not popular, a rarity this days, you are too late. This was one of those times where the door of opportunity is narrow and timing was everything. If you did not get it when you were there they may be gone. The instant sell outs did not make much sense. I was...

Re: [CAN/US] vip invitation for Nov 22

This event is in store only so I would assume the promo only applies in store during the event. Last year they held the 3xVIP point promo on the same day as the in-store event, so it's likely that this Saturday will be 2xVIP points online as well as in-store. Perhaps, but that information is not on...
