Lego contest at Pasadena Public Library

Hi all, If you live in Southern California and want to participate in a Lego contest, here's your chance. Actually, you don't even need to be local to enter but it helps since they want to display your submission should your entry be chosen. The deadline entry is this Saturday, July 8th. You can go ...

Where are you guys seeing these in Target? At the checkout counter or by the other Lego sets or somewhere else?

It might have to do with popularity of Mars rover that brings attention to some of these forgotten sets.

What about Minecraft? Seems like that is selling out everywhere? Passing fad?

Re: [USA] Special Invitation for VIP Members to shop before

For me, it was just an "OK" experience. My discount was also just 10%, one lady got 20% and she was the guest (not that there is anything wrong with that...just saying it was few and far in between). About 10 of the 25 showed up and actually people were let in before 9AM. When I got there I already ...

Re: [USA] Special Invitation for VIP Members to shop before

anthonyj8: Yes, I do not think someone who is not invited and not a guest of the invited would not be allowed in during this 1 hour window simply because that's not really a long time. If you think about 25 (or so) people plus another 25 guest that's ~50 people in a Lego store. That's a lot of Lego ...

Sjhapke: That's easy...Lego is a $$ making enterprise...they made more....so what they told you was probably 100% correct at the time, but so is being able to make more.

Re: [USA] Special Invitation for VIP Members to shop before

Would you be allowed to go even if you didn't get an invite? I know you wouldn't be able to have all of the special offers, but is there going to be a set of hours at the Lego Store where only VIPs are allowed? I don't think you can "get in" without the invite. They don't want extra people taking u...

Re: [USA] Special Invitation for VIP Members to shop before

My invitation is for November 19th. I'm not sure if that is across the board. It sounds like you also get the mystery scratch card, but it does not really specify. Also it appears that a limited number of people are being invited, but that could be to hype it up. I'd be happy to not have to go at 5...

Re: Minifig Series 6 & 7 Box Order

Ok, thanks...I might go the Entertainment Earth route. I'm in So. Calif. so shipping should be nominal. Too bad, was hoping for some discount for getting it the whole box. I might check out BL too.

Another cheap set going for $5.99 now...this one doesn't appear to have limits (you can correct me if I'm wrong since I only ordered 2). http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/519CR9Zkp8L._SL160_.jpg Link IMHO, this mini-set isn't that great (maybe that's why it's heavily discounted) but good for ext...

Re: [USA] Amazon.com LEGO Deals & FREE Shipping Deadline

If you want one, buy it now. If you want multiple, buy one now. Then wait and buy later. No matter what happens, you'll always have one and not be shut out! Yep, I did that months ago. I like the variety of minifigs in this set and also the fact that the building can be parts for a castle. Looks li...
