Orthanc (CDN) Reg $249.99 on sale for $199.97.

Proof that LEGO "price fixing" is pile of stinking doo-doo.

Re: No Discounts Policy on LEGO Exclusives & Hard to Find It

I forget if the article above mentions it but this policy applies to employees of Lego as well. My local store told me they can't use their discounts for HTF/Exclusive sets anymore either. This was supposedly one of the conditions of Amazon and others but who know for real. That is 100% not true, U...

Re: Fire Brigade 10197 and Town Hall 10224 Retiring soon?

My store hasn't received Fire Brigades for months but Town Halls are still coming in. How exactly did he say they weren't being shipped anymore? TLG hasn't shipped any lately? TLG won't ship anymore, ever?

Re: Toys R Us Lego Star Wars & Turtles 25% Off 6/9-6/15

Anyone who is looking at the DS or SSD should alert Amazon.com of a lower price. That is if you want to save the tax or like me are located in Canada and want a SSD.

Re: This seems unnecessary....

I received this box from Target. I ordered two sets in their B1G1 50% off City sale. Look how huge this box is and there was only 1 set inside! An identical box arrived the same day with its mate. :???: No wonder prices on everything seem to be going up, the shipping department has lost their minds...

Re: 10236 Ewok Village UCS LEGO Star Wars Set

As someone who just came out of a long dark age and vowed to never touch the Star Wars sets (because of the amount of money I would be spending) this is a must buy set. Ewok's have always been a favorite of mine, and besides Lucas changing the celebration song at the end of RotJ when they remastered...

Re: May the 4th be with you (2013)

Just got off the phone with TLG, after receiving the second part of 2 seperate orders I placed for B-Wing's. Both B-Wings arrived in mint condition by the way. I didn't get the Chima sets in any order like a few others here. Well I called Lego up and said I had heard of people getting free Chima set...

Re: May the 4th be with you (2013)

Of my two orders I placed on May 4 (One within minutes of the sale going live and the other some time during the day), all of my promo items have shipped from each order and my back ordered B-Wing from the first order just shipped this morning.

Re: May the 4th be with you (2013)

I didn't have my order cancelled but as soon as the sale went live I bought a B-Wing. I was refreshing the page every 5 seconds so I must have been one of the first to purchase and yet still my order is on back order. If I wouldn't have been buying this at such a good price or I would be a little pe...

They wouldn't price match an American website anyways or am I missing something? That's unfortunate that their price match policy is so archaic regardless. I'll just price match at Walmart if they go the route of TRU.

Re: May the 4th be with you (2013)

Iam sure many folks loaded 5 of them, but I don't see this set becoming a gainer in years to come, I had been debating on its merits and demerits for the last hour until I finally decided and it's gone Let's take a count how many TNB folks ordered one? I think it will appreciate decently if you're ...

I'm surprised that it took nearly an hour to sell out, they must have had a ton to sell. I wonder how many people loaded up with 5 of them though as well, not that I care.

Can anyone in Canada confirm the sale? I don't have a Lego store near me and long distance is crazy expensive on my cell otherwise I would call.

Re: May the 4th be with you (2013)

I'm leaning towards 50% because it really does look like a slow seller. It's always on the shelves whenever I stop by the Lego store. They even included a free TC-14 all month last October and I don't think I've seen one move. Not to mention the reviews aren't that great on Lego.com, 3.6 overall, 2...

Re: Too Much of a Good (Great) Thing?

I originally limited myself to only so many themes but unfortunately that list seems to keep growing. I've only paid MSRP for 1 set so far (Mill Village Raid a month ago), everything else has been about 20%-75% off which helps (me justify buying more haha). The one theme that I swore I would avoid i...
