Re: LEGO Wall-E Available at Select Retailers (USA/Canada)

Is this the original design with the flimsy neck joint, or did they fix that?

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

Greatest set Lego has ever built. The play value of this set is just off the charts. It was sturdy enough to survive my then 3 and 6 year olds, and now 3 years later it is still (mostly) intact and still played with often. I strongly hope the decision to discontinue is just to create demand for a up...

Re: Fry's USA LEGO Clearance Sale - February 2015

If you pickup at the store, be sure to note the "Must pick up by..." Date. My last order there was only 2 days, and when I arrived 3 days later, they had already restocked my set and cancelled the order.

Re: [USA] LEGO Bricktober 2014 Mini Modular Sets - $19.99 at

Same here in Little Rock (see attached), but definitely YMMV... When I went to checkout, the cashier said the computer says they are not allowed to sell it until October. After some friendly persistence, she called over the manager that after a minute of checking it out, allowed the sale. She then t...

Re: [USA] LEGO Bricktober 2014 Mini Modular Sets - $19.99 at

I built the pizza parlour and fire station from my own pieces and online instructions (the other two were outside my parts capacity), and they really are great, cute sets. I think claiming they should be $10 sets is a bit extreme. $15 maybe...but then I remember the MiniModulars set which came with ...

Re: 71006 LEGO The Simpsons House

Looks like this has the Interwebs up in a tizzy... First time I've seen a leaked Lego pict show up on several non-Lego blogs (uproxx, mentalfloss, and others). Bravo, Lego!

Re: 71006 LEGO The Simpsons House

2500 parts and licensed?!? I'm gonna guess $200, bc unless the interior is spectacular not many will buy at $250-300. I just hope they have a Canyonero, three-eyed fish (polybag?!?), and the nuclear power plant!

Re: LEGO Movie Poster Sticker 5002891

Great question. And better a advertisement. I read about this "Free Lego Movie Sticker!" in the latest Lego Catalog, and was like, "What? Like a stickerbook sticker?" and didn't realize it was intended for the Theater wall until I saw this post. Also, sorry to derail, but what happened to the Lego C...

Re: [USA] Jabba's Sail Barge at Yoyo

Ordered. Said delivery by July 5th. And the confirmation email was from Diapers.com, another Amazon subsidiary. (Oh yeah, and the $119 was MSRP. I'm sure it might dip to $90 occasionally throughout its lifespan, but $99 is damn good for a Day 1 deal!)

Re: [USA] LEGO City Museum Break-in on sale for 26% off

Price up to $56.35 (19% off). Tempting, but I tend to agree on the comments above. Thanks for posting the sale, OP! This is the first time I've seen this set go on sale.

Re: Calendar Club 50% Everything - Includes LEGO

I went to mine (Lakeline Mall, Austin, TX) was sold out (I didn't ask if they had any to begin with). It was just a kiosk and not a full store front, so not sure of that mattered.

Re: Toys R Us (USA) Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off 11/25-12/1

Sorry, guys... ditched this deal in favor for the yoyo.com 40% off one item sale (code: TOY40), in order to score the Helicarrier. I had to slickfill a Minifigs Series 7 for free shipping, but it was much better than slickfilling a $30 helicopter for TRU's BOGO.

Re: Toys R Us (USA) Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off 11/25-12/1

yeah, the Striker would be nice. :-( I'm considering about making this a "Hella Heli Deal" and get the Transport Helicopter or the Heavy-Lifter Helicopter with the Helicarrier, but I've never loved those sets. :-/
