Re: Buy the set or buy the minifigure?

The sets can only sell with the figures these days. No one like those ugly clone wars ships. What I do is buy the set, keep the figures and sell the set. A typical exception would be something like Ewok Attack. The tree is nice and fits nicely with Battle of Endor. Other stuff like Nightspeeder? meh.

Re: [CAN] New LEGO Brand Store in Fairview Mall - Toronto, O

That is a really really long lineup... I really like the figures so I'm sure the wait is worth it!

Re: 4000002 LOM Moulding Lego Set

I'm sure one can buy the pieces from Bricklink and build it from the instructions. There doesn't seem to be any unique pieces (other than the printed writings).

Re: [REVIEW] 8083 Hoth Rebel Battle Pack

The figures are good, but the ship is way too small. Feels like Lego is only focusing on the figures in battle packs these days.

Re: [CAN] tru has lego only sets instock!

I called them and the CSR told me no rain checks for promotions. :| I've got a cart of seven items that I've essentially been sitting on since Christmas, waiting for a good deal, and the shipping is exactly 5% of the total.

Re: [CAN] ToysRUs LEGO Sale: March 25-31

I was at TRU today and saw Lego Stormtrooper & Darth Vader Alarm Clocks price tag on the shelves for $20.15. The regular price is $26.99 so I think its on sale. Unforunately, the clocks were sold out. :(

Lego Watches were also down to $18.65.

Lego has now removed the discount for 50% off prince of persia. Was the initial sale a mistake in Canada?

Lego 20019 Slave I

Saw this new Lego Star Wars set on Bricklink. I would assume this is the new Brickmaster magazine set for January 2011. Lowest price is $20 and shipping. When will Brickmaster come to Canada? I'm really missing all these good sets.
