Re: May the 4th LEGO Star Wars Sale 2015

People who complain about the sale but then go ahead and make an order for regular sets anyway are just playing into Lego's greedy hands. Just. Stop. Buying.

Re: Official Press Release: #10247 Ferris Wheel LEGO Creator

Nice but not worth the price. Something about the skeletal bare bones frame being multi-coloured makes it look like a K'nex set ferris wheel to me.

Re: Target Canada In Store Clearance

Eh, are Walmarts across the country really particularly different in terms of the stock they carry? All the same American/Chinese junk. I think Target just went too big too fast. They should have started with a quarter of the number of the stores and concentrated their supply chain resources on maki...

Re: Target Canada In Store Clearance

Good news is, places like TRU will get to stick around longer now Target is gone. How is this good news? Tru hardly had any Lego sales this year. I miss Target already and they haven't even left yet. Shopping there was one of the bright spots throughout 2014. Us stupid Canadians will get what we de...

Re: LEGO Star Wars Summer Sets 2014 Canada

In Canada only certain sets get the price bump at ToysRUs. Most don't. We already pay inflated prices at MSRP!

Re: Target Clearance (YMMV) (CAN)

The way I see it, Lego speculating is a bit like racism. Yeah, hear me out. We're all a little bit racist, it's true http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RovF1zsDoeM And we're all a little bit Lego speculators, as well. Even if we just buy sets to give to kids to open and play with, there's that little vo...

Re: Lego Star Wars 2014 Sets Descriptions

Love how the droid fighter somehow costs as much as Anakin's interceptor. Besides that and the droid gunship, the rest of the pricing seems okay. At least they didn't bump the battlepacks up another dollar or anything.

Re: LEGO Black Friday 2013 VIP Early Access (USA & Canada)

lol the whole Lego Shop-at-home website is kaput. So is phone customer support which doesn't recognize any order or VIP #s and probably has a 10 year wait to speak to a representative, who's computers are probably also down. Gotta love we (humanity's) stampede to consume itself to destruction.

Re: Lego Simpsons in 2014?

Simpsons are totally NOT appropriate for a kid's toy or the LEGO brand. There's blood, swearing and tons of suggestive and inappropriate stuff in that show. Can't believe LEGO would approve this but won't do say a military theme.

Re: 2014 LEGO Star Wars AT-AP Walker Set

Soooo many Clone wars remakes lately. But, I am glad to see this one in particular all the same because I wanted two of the original for my Clone army but never bit the bullet.

Re: Amazon Canada Now has a Toy Department (with LEGO)

As others have mentioned this is great news. I can only hope they pack any Lego orders better than several of the books I have ordered from them in the past. A few hard cover books arrived at my place with badly dented corners, and other items were loose in the boxes. Amazon doesn't even use boxes ...

Re: Creator Expert LEGO 10234 Sydney Opera House

Beautiful looking set. Horrible, ridiculous price. I could get a Playstation 4 for only $20 more. Lego really needs to re-examine their price to value equation, especially now that they're increasingly outsourcing to China, there's less justification for their pricing model.

Re: 10236 Ewok Village UCS LEGO Star Wars Set

Yeah ghosts would've been very cool. The ending of Return of the Jedi, with the rebel pilots and celebration and all, is the only time the ewok village was actually cool. Otherwise the ewok village was basically the Gungan City of the original trilogy - a Disney (in this case Swiss Family Robinson) ...
