Re: Got a E-mail From Toys R Us on Why they Overcharge on Le

Dear Ed Mazerski: ...While we try to keep our prices competitive with other companies which sell the same item, we are not always able to do so... Lol, that is quite a hilarious statement. Businesses often don’t last long if they sell an identical widget as the next guy for a higher price. Perhaps ...

Re: [US] Amazon to collect sales tax in more states

I live in CA, in which Amazon will begin collecting tax in September. I sure am going to miss tax-free shopping. Oh well, it seems all good things come to an end. I have no clue why Amazon supports Federal legislation to charge taxes from its customers. The bottom line it that they'll lose business ...

Re: Kmart. What the heck?

...today I went on kmart.com and noticed that they jacked up prices on several sets by 10% or so. I'd never seen them do this before... Anyone know what's going on? Good observation. The raised prices are pretty disappointing; maybe they are trying to expedite their demise lol. If they are having t...

Re: 2012 LEGO Creator (Summer)

Don't think we've seen this one yet. 7345 Transport Chopper. Really neat that it can store the car! This set was leaked sometime during February, I believe. I've been looking forward to it for a while. I wish it were minifigure scale, but oh well. Well, imo, too many helicopter has been released th...

Re: A tip for cleaning 9v tracks!

You can also use Brasso metal polish. $3 at Home Depot. I've used this stuff on many bare metal surfaces with awesome results. But you wont get that minty fresh smell afterwards like with crest! http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-202820651/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&keyword=m...

Re: Let's Turn Awesome Sales Into A Win For All

I like that you're thinking of ways to work together to save money on sets we would buy anyway. However, I don't think the system, as it is currently proposed, would work for me. Here's why: 1. I would likely be too nervous handing someone I don't know hundreds of dollars or more, however trustworth...

Re: [USA] ToysRUs BOGO 50% off ALL* LEGO

I was trying to order two of the Tower Bridge, but it will only allow me to order one. How lame. FAO Schwartz and etoys are the same story. I wish something else was commensurately priced, so I wouldn't feel ripped off by only buying one TB.

Toy Story Western Train Chase (7597) - $60.58 @ Amazon

MSRP is $79.99, so $60.58 is a pretty solid discount especially considering most don't have to pay tax/shipping. http://www.amazon.com/LEGO-Story-Western-Train-Chase/dp/B003DTMQAW/?_encoding=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&s=toys-and-games&tag=tonbr-20&linkCode=ur2&qid=1330059933&camp=1789&sr=1-10&creative=932...

Go to FAO.com, they allow 2 of one item and they have the same promos going on right now. EDIT: I just noticed both FAO and eToys removed the GE listing on their website. :oops: First thing I tried lol. But like you said, they removed the GE from the respective sites. No such luck with ordering the...

Well, I'm officially done with Toysrus. Diagon Alley "conveniently" is out of stock for shipping. It's been there for weeks on end in stock. I had it in my cart 5 minutes ago. As soon as they begin to adjust their website for the 20% HP sale...BOOM. No longer in stock. Absolute scumbags. Why does i...

Re: No more flat rate Shipping for Amazon Italy?

Bummer, I checked this out as well for the Supercar 8070. 70.01 Euro for me in California. I guess I'll have to stick with Amazon France for overseas Lego orders. Too bad Amazon UK is so expensive; Amazon Germany seems to be a bit more expensive than Amazon France, but less than Amazon UK.

Re: B&N 10% off new LEGO releases and coupon eligble

Question: How are you finding the new sets on BN.com? If I type in Lego as a search criteria, I dont see any new sets. Is there a way to find the new sets without having to type the set number in and search one by one? http://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/?sort=PD&size=30&pn=LEGO Does that work for you?...
