Re: 10254 Holiday Train Creator Expert LEGO Official Press R

surprised no one else has made a comparison to the original 2007 holiday train 10173 that was $90usd for over 900 pieces or about 9-10 cents a piece. When inflating to 2016 dollars it comes to about 13 cents per piece based on quick math but other posters should do a more detailed comparison. I sold...

Re: Official Press Release: LEGO 10249 Winter Toy Shop

good thing, I sold my 2009 winter toy shop misb along with other OOP winter theme sets earlier this year - these were good collector items for resale. I will still definitely buy this one when it comes out. Cannot go wrong with winter holiday theme sets.

Re: LEGO Star Wars 10188 Death Star (2008 Set Retiring Soon)

What's with these comments about outdated parts and minifig printing? What do you expect when you are considering a set 7 years later after its release! Any set generally would be outdated 7 years later as lego keeps remaking old themes/sets. Nothing to do with outdated pieces, but on the investment...

Re: B&N BOGO50 on "educational" toys ONLINE ONLY

As stated in my post and well known now, coupons only work on sets with no coupon exclusions. This is about 10 or less sets. Eg droid gunship, minecraft, master academy sets, and the best of all benny spaceship. With coupon, tax and shipping included, seems like you'll get Benny's Spaceship for $90...

Re: B&N BOGO50 on "educational" toys ONLINE ONLY

the bnfriends coupon for 20%off does stack with the bogo (if both an educational toy and has no coupon exclusion).

example buying 2 $80 sets. 20% applies to one, and 50% off on the 2nd. > 160 becomes 64 + 40=104 so combined equals 35% off for the two instead of 25% for the two

Re: Lego City sets, worth buying?

police station - they release this type of set every year and every christmas a city police station set is one of the hot / popular toys for gifts. ebay can get you $120-$150 during christmas but only when supplies are low during christmas so if you can get the set for $70, you can make about $38-65.
