Re: LEGO Group to Invest 1 Billion DKK to Search for Sustain

This has nothing to do with being environmentally friendly, it's all about finding ways to continue to make their plastic bricks. Oil isn't forever.

Re: [USA] LEGO Mirkwood Spiders on sale for 43% off

Mirkwood Spiders is regularly $29.99 (not $24.99 as stated above). You got the % off correct, at least :)

I think you should understand that even small complaints could possibly have an effect. It's when people stop complaining that there will be no change.

Re: ToysRUs BOGO 50% off. Online only!

Galaxy Squad is still "discounted" to MSRP, so a good deal to be had on those sets (and they are good sets).

I could not disagree more about the resale potential given the unique (and awesome) minifigs alone.

Re: [USA] Ninjago Spitta Play Set + Ninjago Kai Fire Mech- $

Look, I realize I came off as really preachy and judgmental with all this, and honestly, that was not my intent. I get that we all have times in our lives when a situation presents itself where we get the better of something, or we get to "stick it" to someone we hate. Plus, Walmart is a good target...

Re: [USA] Ninjago Spitta Play Set + Ninjago Kai Fire Mech- $

Well, there are two scenarios here after your shenanigans: 1) Walmart is making a profit on selling mechs at $2 each, and all is right with the world 2) Walmart is instead taking a loss on the mechs, and as a result, does any or all of a number of things; raises prices to offset the loss, refuses to...

Re: [USA] Ninjago Spitta Play Set + Ninjago Kai Fire Mech- $

Sure as part of a bundle (and BOGOs are bundles), you absolutely have the right to return the items. The problem is, if you return only a portion of the bundle, then you no longer have the luxury of enjoying the savings you got as part of the bundle as a whole. Anyone trying to convince themselves t...

Re: [USA] Ninjago Spitta Play Set + Ninjago Kai Fire Mech- $

I think it's unethical and fraudulent, because you didn't buy one product and return it, you bought two in a bundle and returned only one. this is no different from doing something like a BOGO and returning one but keeping the "get one" for yourself. Just because Walmart's system is obviously not sm...

Re: [Lego Store] Winter Village Cottage $69.98

I saw a few the Cottage set for $69.98 yesterday at Queens Center Lego store (NY). The TRU at Times Square had four of the Post Office set last week for $59.99 but they're all gone now. They would not honor any coupons due to the fact they fall under the "hard to find" category. :what?: This is cra...

One other deal, which tends to fly under the radar in these deals is the Power Functions Rechargeable Battery Box (8878). This is really your only chance to get these relatively cheap ($75 for two of them). They really are worth it if you are into trains or technic. Of course, you need the adapter a...

Re: [TRU] BOGO 50% 2/17 - 2/23

Yeah, once again, TRU fails us miserably. Even the Y-wing, which is priced great, is excluded. Again, TRU can outright lie - not deceive, not manipulate - lie in their advertisements and they just keep on chugging along. That being said, there is only one possible good thing I see in this sale, and ...

[TRU] BOGO 50% 2/17 - 2/23

The ad I have claims that it is all Lego excluding Technic, Chima & TMNT. Reminder: BOGO 50% = 25% off overall if you buy identically-priced items. As we all know so well, that's not all they exclude, because for some reason it's ok for TRU to lie in their advertisements. Anyway, good luck if you're...

My two shipped yesterday evening, in separate packages oddly. Don't these come 2 to a case?

Yeah, they will never send you the...
