Re: [Canada] ToysRUs LEGO Sale: April 15-21

Wow, a whole 20%! What a bargain! For 10+ years they had 20% off a whole Lego theme each week on a rotating basis. Now in 2016 , with the demise of Target and the seeming popularity of Lego, sales are non-existent in Canada outside of Walmart clearance. It's causing me to lose interest in the hobby ...

It's one of many derisive terms used by resellers on the brickpicker forum to describe children who just want to buy Lego to play with. When someone uses that term, it usually "outs" them as a member of that forum and all that entails.

Re: Are Americans near a Canadian bordering buying up Lego?

Local WalMart informed me they are doing clearances now to make room for the re-set next month with new product. TRU near me finished post-Xmas inventory are are expecting re-stock soon. I had heard/read that some exclusives and higher-priced items from LEGO brick and morter stores in Canada might ...

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: Walmart.ca Clearance

Well, your points are well taken. I think we can all agree that Walmart lies somewhere between child and criminal. I'm certainly no fan of them as a corporation - they arose out of the rubble of the segregationist American south and over the last 50 years led the charge toward a lower wage part time...

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: Walmart.ca Clearance

I got the AT-AT by going to Toys R Us. They price matched the $64 for it. Got it for 50% off!! How did you manage to convince them to do that. It's out of stock on the website, and clearance as well. (I've had issues trying to price match a clearance item before that wasn't Lego). On top of that, s...

Sometimes I wish Lego would go bankrupt so I could be free of this hobby which feels like a ball and chain and/or money suck sometimes.

Incorrect. Fine print says per one TRANSACTION, which could contain any number of toys.

Re: TARGET AT-AT on sale

Ninja Turtles 79121 Submarine and City 6022 Cargo plane terminal are also both half of this week (says New Low Price, not a clearance). Buy them together and the total is just over the $100 needed for the coupon, so you get another $20 off making them 60% off. Not too shabby.

Re: LEGO Bricktober 2014 Sale - Week 4 ToysRUs

I've had an equally mixed experience with TRU staff lately. They seem to be getting worse.

They must've had like 100 of the raccoon polybags out on the floor in my store, but they'd only allow you to take one as part of the promo. Couldn't buy individually.

Re: Mastermind Toys: Free minifig with $25 purchase (ends 10

And did they sell the TC-4 separately? Not at my store. I asked. It's harder to milk a store like mastermind since it's a small group of staff who aren't as clueless as your average TRU employee. This figure will probably be available in November from Shop-at-home like the Clone lieutenant was last...

Re: TRU Canada - 50% off galaxy squad sept 27th - Oct 3rd

Now why can you not buy from Lego? No stores near you? No credit cards? Most likely he was banned from Shop at Home for making multiple accounts to circumvent items limits, or something similar. At a certain point, a healthy hobby like investing in Lego becomes a hoarding sickness that can get you ...
