Re: First 2016 LEGO Ideas Results: Old Fishing Store

What would you consider duds? The Big Bang Theory, WALL-E, Caterham Super Seven, Yellow submarine. Big bang set refuses to die even with deep 30-50% discounts being the norm! :shock: How can a set be a dud when it's not out yet... or even revealed?! It's a case of IMO. Yellow submarine is a dud for...

Re: DC 70909 Batcave Break-In, Mr. Freeze Ice Attack, Arkham

The Arkham Asylum building looks really bland compared to 10937 but the minifigs are interesting.

Re: First 2016 LEGO Ideas Results: Old Fishing Store

Wow finally after a streak of duds we get a fantastic set. I believe this set is what CUSSO/IDEAS was all about when it initially launched.

Will be in my shopping bag.

Re: 10254 Holiday Train Creator Expert LEGO Official Press R

The price is roughly in line if you compare it to Ghost Train or Constitution which were $79 and $99 respectively. Ghost train was smaller physically cause it split the part count with the prop plane and it lacked rails. So this new train is very similar to Constitution in terms of part count and pr...

Re: LEGO Ideas Third 2015 LEGO Review Results

Someone on TLG must have really loved Beatles for that model to make it through. It's really stupid more so because of all the Beatles albums and songs, Yellow Submarine is considered one of the crappier ones. I think if they did a diorama of the Zebra crossing it would have been infinitely better t...

Re: Post Christmas LEGO Year End Sale 2015

I have to agree, this year's sale was a total joke. It looks like Lego is getting too efficient at inventory management!!! They don't even need to light the fire under their old inventory to clear them out anymore...

Re: LEGO Star Wars 75142 Homing Spider Droid

Very odd release indeed... Of all the sets they could have re-made they picked this one and from prequel no less!!! The previous version was a stalwart and I still see it kicking around here and there on shelves, only moving at a decent clearance price so not sure what Lego is hoping to achieve here...

Re: 30294 Ninjago 'The Cowler Dragon' polybag at Target

Found these at the Vaughan Mills Lego Discovery shop as well. CAD $6! :crazy:

Too bad Target died up here in Canada, although they never really carried the same selection of polys up here.

Re: More LEGO Ghostbuster Products Coming Soon! (part of LEG

While I agree with all of the above, sadly I think I'm gonna pick up all of these, including the initial game release pack although I have no intention of actually playing the game nor do I have the console for it.

No wonder TLG's pocket book growing thicker year over year...

TRU.ca finally sold out. It was sitting at the top of the most popular item but the Jurassic stuff took over the past day or two.

Re: Official Images & Descriptions of LEGO Scooby-Doo Sets (

In for the three biggest sets. Maybe the plane, probably not the mummy but I'll probably buy that one too on sale anyway lol.
